Are you aware that Gen. Banks aspired to the post now occupied by McClellan, and that he was warmly pressed upon the Administration by quite a number of his especial political friends and admirers?

There is also a formidable rifle battery newly detected, near the Potomac creek. This is, of course, a fresh sensation and will engage without delay, the attention of the Potomac floffile, because such a disposition of the batteries gives the Confederates the command of the river.
