We have received New York papers of the 20th inst. It is evident that the Federal do not know where Gen. Lee's army is, though the Herald, in its situation article, says McClellan has driven it across the Potomac. The same paper thinks the "seventeen days campaign" of McClellan has never been excelled, and questions if "Napoleon, in the bey day of his career, accomplished so much within the same number of days, handling so vast a mass of men against an equal mass on the other side." --General Pope has telegraphed the Governor of Wisconsin to send more troops against the Indians and the Governor has sent him one of the regiments intended to operate against the Confederates in Kentucky. The Chippewa have made peace with the United States, and the chief of the Sioux has made overtures for the same thing. A troop of cavalry made a reconnaissance on Thursday night from Washington in the direction of Thoroughfare Gap, and returned with thirty- two rebel prisoners, and a number of wagon
ners from this city. It leaked out yesterday that the mission of those in charge of the boat was specially to convey away Pope's officers, who, under the terms of the President's proclamation, have been held in strict confinement since their capturever. If any such thing as a demand was made for them, it was no doubt accompanied by concessions, and such a disavowal of Pope's infamous proclamation as lifted his less guilty companions and tools out of the difficulty in which they found themselves involved by his action.

et to put into practice his idea of killing all the Southern white men and giving their lands and property to the slaves, so that we may have a piebald republic, with negro members of Congress, and, by and by, a negro President. Wade and Sumner want to be in the Cabinet to annihilate the slaveholders. Fremont wants to lead our armies — to annihilate the nation. But how do these ambitious fanatics propose to accomplish their desires? They have tried to manipulate President Lincoln; but Pope spoiled that game by putting the capital in such danger that the President was forced to kick the radicals aside and rush to the conservative McClellan for safety. Now they try secret conspiracies and open threats. They boldly denounce the President as an imbecile, and call upon him to resign or change his Cabinet, under penalty of a revolution. They designed to prepare for this revolution, through our Jacobin War Committee, behaving Fremont authorized to raise a corps of fifty thousand me
Federal prisoners. --There are now, including Pope's officers, and free negroes, some three hundred and sixty Federal prisoners confined at the Libby prison. This number may be materially reduced in a few days by the sending home of all those able to bear removal. In the last batch sent off were included seven of the so-called citizens of Washington, or Department clerks, captured at the last battle of Manassas, who made their appearance on that field for the pretended purpose of attending to the wounded, but in reality to gloat over the presumed defeat of the Confederate soldiers engaged in that memorable contest.
