many people I met last week. The whole American people will, I doubt not, sustain Mr. Seward's tone and position, and certainly the dispatch to which he had to reply was not a very remarkable one, not quite worthy, perhaps, of the Foreign Office. The effect of these arguments will be best treated at the other side of the Atlantic, but it may be remarked that the cases selected for remonstrance were far from being the strongest that could have been found. Every word that comes from Great Britain, every act that is done by her, is closely — nay, unjustly — construed by Americans. She may not look over the hedge, while France can steal a horse if she please. The suspicious jealous, shrewish young lady detects foul play in every movement of her mother-in-law, and will "brave none of that." I actually heard an officer find fault with Lieut Grant, of Her Majesty's ship Steady, because he was not quite pleased with the Captain of the United States ship Vandalia, off Charleston,

usively, and had difficulty in transmitting their pay to their friends at home, as there is no system of money orders known to the post-offices of this country. October 20th.--Gen. McClellan--in some perplexity, probably in reference to the course to be adopted towards such an elastic enemy, who gives way before pressure only to spring out when it is removed, or to spread out into some new quarter — ordered a reconnaissance yesterday morning in the direction of Fairfax Court-House and Flint Hill, and the creek called Difficult. As the good Virginians never made any map of their country of value for military purposes — or, in other words, of accuracy or minuteness of detail, it was essential to procure an idea of this part of the theatre of operations, and the topographical engineers who have been at work laying down authentic plans of hill, dale, ravine, and by-path, were in requisition once more Gen. McDowell had no such advantages. He was shoved "on to Richmond" without kn

We heard of regiments and guards of colored people down South, and when the Confederates were at Munson's Hill one of their most forward skirmishes — an indefatigable fellow, always loading and firing — was a black man. There has been no great reinforcements received by this army lately, in consequence of the diversion of Ohio and Illinois and Indiana troops to the State of Kentucky and to the West, and the largest estimate of the forces in the field does not raise it much above the numbers given in one of my recent letters. It is in the New England States, and the emigration from them in the West, which have put forth their strength in the war for the Union, and the Puritan and Quaker element of the other States has been animated by a similar spirit.

's report nothing would have been known of the facts. Had the case been reversed we should have been threatened with nothing short of war — a menace, by the by, which might almost be stereotyped in some of the most widely read, and therefore least influential of the American journals. Since my last letter up to this date little has occurred of interest or importance. Reconnaissances have pushed out carefully from the front of the Federal army, and have discovered as far as Fairfax and Vienna — even to creeks below Alexandria and along the road to Drainsville — that the enemy are not in force and do not hold the ground; but that they are in observation, and have their troops well thrown back towards the old position at Manassas. It is believed that the Confederates know every move of their opponents, who are not at all so fortunate. The negro population are thought to act for their masters with zeal and fidelity.

as to please the men, becomes inveterate in any officer who has once gained a certain amount of favor and hopes to procure higher advancement. It will be a very glorious proof of the patriotism and purity of the American people, if they overcome all temptations which usually beset men in power, and lay down that which they have had conferred on them for a special object as soon as it shall have been accomplished. To all but the eye of Faith that object is still far off indeed. Matters in Missouri are no better. What would be thought in London if an enemy's battery were playing on the shipping below Blackwall? In Kentucky the Federalists do not appear to have gained much, if anything, and the Union party there confess they must have the aid of troops from the other States, or they cannot hold their own against the bold and enterprising Confederates. The money is flowing now to the extent of some $1,000,000 a day or more — that is, the notes are; for Mr. Chase, to the immense d

McDowell had no such advantages. He was shoved "on to Richmond" without knowing anything of the country, except what he could learn from ill-disposed natives and his own eyes as he advanced, for the engineers could do little to assist him; and their efforts to reconnoitre on the Thursday before Bull's Run served only to show they were dangerous and futile.--Gen. McClellan left his quarters in Washington on Friday, and ... gave rise to many of the queer eccentricities of expression called rumors. It must be pleasant to get away sometimes from Cabinet Ministers and statesmen, though, truth to tell, the General is not much concerned about keeping them waiting, for as yet he feels his legs very strong under him.
