of Gen. Pope's instructions, the rich and aristocratic rebels of Warrenton have already been placed under contribution for the support of the National army. The leading families, the Extra Billy Smiths, the Tylers and the Shacklefords have received notice that all their spare mattresses and bed clothing will be required for our sick and wounded soldiers, and that all the unoccupied rooms in their mansions, and, if necessary, the entire buildings, will be used as hospitals. Col. Meyers, of McDowell's staff, to-day took possession of Dr. Bacon's large female seminary. Dr. Bacon strongly protested against its use by the army, but Col. Meyers told him he must not expect to enjoy secession and all the other luxuries of the season at the same time. Our sick and wounded soldiers now occupy the rooms but a few weeks since graced by the fair F. F. V. rebels. The Episcopal, Presbyterian, Baptist and Methodist Churches have also been taken for the use of the army. The large hotel at War

Mayor's office. As a matter of course, there was instantly a scene of confusion, as she had selected the time when she would find the most obnoxious Secessionists parading the vicinity. Upon reaching the building next to the Bank of Orleans she theatrically appealed to the crowd for protection, and the next moment the policeman was knocked down, and a shot was fired out of the store, that wounded the soldier assisting the civil officer. Thereupon a hundred persons, returned soldiers of Beauregard's army, by concerted agreement no doubt, cried murder, and one of the National officers at the same moment fired at the assassin who wounded the soldier. In the confusion the would be murderers escaped, but the woman, together with some of her most prominent sympathizers, were conveyed before Gen. Shepley, at the City Hall. Upon being brought into the presence of General Shepley, she commenced the utterance of threats and abuse, and further took out of her bosom innumerable bits of p

As regards the sensation report of one of your contemporaries, to the effect that Jeff. Davis has sent a special messenger to France and England, who carries in his portmanteau letters from the French and English Consuls, to prove the ability of the Southern Confederacy to maintain itself, it may be stated positively that if any such missionary has gone, he did no
t Churches have also been taken for the use of the army. The large hotel at Warrenton Springs, and the adjoining cottages, are being fitted up for hospitals. Two thousand sick can easily be accommodated. The grounds and springs surrounding the hotels and cottages are said to be finer than any watering place in the whole country, and all the leading physicians in the army of Gen. Pope are of the opinion that not one half so many deaths will occur here as in the hospitals at Washington. Drs. Magruder, Moseley and Banks have immediate charge of the sick at this point, and are unremitting in their attentions to them. A courier, with dispatches from Gen. Hatch to Gen. Banks, was drowned in attempting to cross the Rappahannock last Friday night. The Rapidan and Rappahannock have fallen so that our supply trains now have no difficulty in crossing them.

It was proposed, and might have been successfully executed on Monday night. But while it was being discussed the hours slipped away, and it was found too late to under-take the enterprise. A golden opportunity to put Morgan on the defensive had passed. Next day we were not surprised to hear that Morgan had left his encampment on Zeb. Ward's farm, from which he took a large number of blooded horses, had moved north, and occupied Midway Station, tearing up the track on the Lexington and Louisville road. It does seem that the bridges on the road might have been saved by posting infantry in position to defend them.--But there was such a tenacity to the defensive system that it was not done. It was deemed more important to endure an interruption of communication than to risk the safety of a town. The place to fight Morgan

At Winchester the same disgraceful intimacy between the women of that place and bearers of shoulder straps exists, and not a few valuable secrets are obtained by the Rebels through this agency. From New Orleans — another arrest of a female — great excitement. On the morning of the 5th, Commander Heweff of her Britannic Majesty's sloop-of-war Rinaldo called upon Gen. Butler, and stated that he had been instructed by Lord Lyons to recognize Mr. Geo. Coppell as Acting British Consul, and expressed the wish that Gen. Butler would now withdraw his objections to recognizing him as such Gen. Butler stated that he could not recognize him until such time as Mr. Coppell withdrew a letter in which he characterized the oath — prescribed for aliens — as imposing upon them the office of spies.

Hatch has not been near Gordonsville, much less Charlottesville. Their bets are freely taken by ours point, and are unremitting in their attentions to them. A courier, with dispatches from Gen.

They had effected their purpose, creating an uproar and excitement in the capital, which put the people on the defensive. They didn't think of taking the offensive. Then Morgan turned east, crossed the Kentucky river at Saryock's Station, and marched to Versailles, which is about equidistant from Franklin and Lexington. There he stayed Monday night. Finding the coast clear, he next day moved north to Midway Station, on the Louisville and Lexington Railroad, tore up the track and destroyed the Elkhorn bridge, while his advance guard, passing by Georgetown, made a sudden dash on the Kentucky Central Road, destroyed a bridge and burned Keyser's extensive distillery, between Paris and Cynthiana, thus completely cutting Lexington off from its northern and western communications. --His exploits s

Cairo July 19 --The steamer General Anderson, from Evansville, has arrived. She passed Henderson, Ky., yesterday forenoon. The rebels had possession of the town. They say they don't intend to interfere with navigation on the river, except Government boats, nor with private property. The number of rebels is not ascertained. Lt. A. R. Johnson, of Bridewell's Tennessee Cavalry, in command, has issued a proclamation, in which he says he has come to protect the citizens against insults and ruling despotism. They claim to be regular soldiers, not guerrillas. Some commissary stores, belonging to the Government, were captured, and a few soldiers taken.
