eneral Fremont's proclamation and Secretary Cameron's report, and requesting the President to dismiss Secretary Cameron from the Cabinet.

He also arrested a man named Hanna, of Chester County, Pa., formerly of California. Both were supposed to be rebel agents. This morning a little before daylight, the pickets at Stump Neck, on the Potomac River, saw a boat with a man in it approaching from the Virginia shore. They concealed themselves till the man landed, when they arrested him.
