I said doubtless it was; but that I had not yet revised it, and was never in the habit of perusing my own works until they were completed. Then I carefully corrected them for the press. Major-Gen. P

Winder himself, and his Provost Marshal Griswold (how much that looks like a Yankee name!), and theiLieut.-Col. A. C. Jones, Assistant Adjutant-General, had, in the name of the bureau, notified Gen. Winder, this morning, that Marylanders, etc. were not liable to bear arms for the South after being aderunners, Jews, and spies, daily passing through his lines with passports from Gens.

Winder waited upon the Secretary of War in the morning, asking permission to call the troops from the camps near the city, tonying the authority of the government to declare martial law, such as existed in this city under the administration of Gen.

He is too unwell to take the field, and suggests, if it be desirable to be in regular communication with Gen. Bragg, thatspitals here, nor supplies sent to them! It really does seem as if an organization of Union men here were co-operating with the enemy, else they never could disappear and reappear so often with impunity. Every one is asking what Gens. Elzey and Winder are doing-and echo answers, what? There is a great pressure for passports to leave the country. Mr. Benjamin writes an indignant letter to the Secretary against Gen.

Winder's door, asking permission to go North on the flag of truce boat. They fear being forced into the army; they will be compelled to aid in the defense of the city young man named Juan Boyle, asking permission for B. to pass into Maryland as an agent of the Navy Department.
