Generals in Reserve on the other Generals now in the field. We always like to hear men talking on any subject which their previous education has not prepared them to comprehend. It shows original genius and vigor of understanding to grasp and master in an instant sciences which other men have only been able to subjugate by long years of study. Even Bonaparte did not disdain to develop and make efficient his natural genius for war by a thorough course of training at the military schools of France. We have reason to be proud of citizens who, with no such preparation, intuitively seize all the strong points of military science, and can tell us off-hand how a battle ought to be fought, a town defended, a fortress besieged, or a campaign conducted. If the cause is lost, it will be because the counsels of these wonderful strategists are not regarded, and General Lee fails to commence a correspondence with them and ascertain their views.

This large frigate, which distributed her favors with such handsome equality between the two combatants, was none other than the Alliance, commanded by the worthy Frenchman, Captain Landais, whose object seems to have been, by allowing the two vessels, in their close encounter, so to disable each other that, keeping the Alliance uninjured, in the event of the Richard's striking her colors, Captain Landais might make prizes of both ships, and return to France with great glory.

Wood's paper (the New York News) has a letter from London, saying that the two iron-clad vessels built a year or two ago in France for the Confederates, but stopped through the vigilance of Mr. Dayton, have got to sea since his death, and are cruising under the rebel flag, under the names of Stonewall and Rapidan. He also declares that there is a secret treaty between the Emperor of France and the Richmond authorities. He intimates that the destination of the rebel iron-clads, which he pronounces invulnerable, is New York city, though they may first go to Boston and destroy that city; or they may go to Washington, oc feeling, is concerned. The price has fallen several per cent., and is now at a lower figure than it has been in a fortnight. Apropos of our relations with France, I may say that Le Courrier des Etats Unis of this morning announces, as if by authority, that M. de Saulx is to be sent to Washington as Minister Plenipotentiary
