ool, who has no doubt entered upon the discharge of his military duties. Our citizens have concluded to make no pleasure trips to Old Point until the next season; so the grand fancy balls at the Hygeia and at Banks', the bountiful hog-fish dinners at Burcher's and Tabb's, and the pleasant walks on the "sounding sea-shore" by moonlight, have all been postponed. The enjoyment of these pleasurable recreations is only a question of time. If our brave commanders deem the possession of Fortress Monroe desirable, it will be taken, and at such time as may be thought proper by them. It should have been taken when it might have been ours without loss of life or limb. When it shall be in our possession, our new and powerful Government will probably build a splendid fortress at the Rip Raps. But we may have something further to say on this subject at another time. This morning there is a fleet of five large vessels in Lynnhaven Bay, besides the Quaker City, that still cruises along

Washington Aug. 19. --The following communication has been issued by the Secretary of war: "To the Governors of Pennsylvania, New York Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, Ahola Island, Masons and Michigan:" "By order of the President you are urgently requested to forward to Washington regiments at Government expense, allowing clothing, &c., to follow them.

This restriction will not be rigidly enforced until a sufficient time has elapse for it to be generally known.

Cease defences — marine and water batteries. The Yankees are building, or intend building, a marine battery, which is to be clad in iron, and which, according to their usual Chinese clamor, is to demolish Fort Sumter, Fort Moultrie, and other Southern fortifications, with the greatest case. If they can construct a marine battery thus clad which can stand a sea voyage to Charleston, (which is doubtful,) why can we not construct a battery iron clad which can be used against Fortress Monroe? And, again, on the other hand, if a ship can be made ball proof against a land battery by being sheathed with iron, why cannot Forts Sumter, Moultrie, and other fortifications, be made equally invulnerable by being sheathed with the came material? That the South greatly needs a marine to act in conjunction with its harbor batteries, is evident enough; but, to supply this deficiency, is a work of time. The Charleston Mercury suggests that what we need now, for present emergencies, as a s
