The old Rey State is nobly doing her duty, and has sent her 33d regiment, 1,000 strong, principally from the counties of Middlesex, Essex, and Suf- folk. The regiment is commanded by Col. A. C. Maggl. The 125th Pennsylvania, Col. Jacob Higgins, arrived this morning, and were marched to the other side of the Potomac.

The 34th regiment Massachusetts volunteers arrived about 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and were quartered last night at the Soldiers' Rest.--The regiment numbers 960 men, who are remarkably fine looking, and will no doubt be fully up to the standard of Massachusetts troops in the fighting line.

terfere with its progress, confirms our belief that the latter is utterly without the necessary transportation to that end, an element of successful campaigning quite as requisite as any in the hands of soldiers. We shall doubtless next hear of McClellan's force on the north side of the York river, at some point from which a march to the support of Pope's army, or from which it can receive promised co-operation (if attacked,) from Gen. Pope, will be an easy task. Major Davis Tilson, of Maine, has been appointed Chief of Artillery in McDowell's corps. One of Major Tilson's batteries, the 2d Maine, Capt. Hall, came gallantly up to the fire at the battle of Cedar Mountain, and opened upon the flank of the rebel camp, near morning. His first shot killed General Winder, and killed or wounded his whole staff, thus throwing the right wing of the rebel army into confusion, and his rapid fire afterwards dealt death and destruction into them at a fearful rate. At the rate at which

C. thanked them for the compliment, and complimented the troops on their fine appearance. The Massachusetts troops were a fine set of men. All wished to see the rebellion put down, and each State should vie with the others in doing its utmost to accomplish this result.

In future there will be no more sneaking, no more running away, no matter what may be the wealth of the individual. Capture of the British steamer Columbia. New York, Aug. 17. --A Key West letter reports the capture of the English steamer Columbia, with a cargo of forty Armstrong guns and several thousand Enfield rifles, army blankets, and other articles, by the gunboat Santiago de Cuba.

The advance of the army arrived at Williamsburg this (Saturday) morning. Nothing of city importance occurred on the march. A body of one hundred rebel cavalry drove in our pickets last night, near Suffolk, and some little excitement prevail there to-day in consequence. The transports with the disabled soldiers from Harrison's Landing have all passed down the Roads accept the steamers New York, Elm City, Montreal, Forest City, and some sailing vessels. Two or three hundred sutlers came down the river this morning, and their schooners are now laying in this harbor.

despair of the Republic. Enlisting in Maryland. The Washington Star says that a "very lively" spirit is aroused in some portions of the State of Maryland, in favor of responding to the recent call of the Government for additional troops. It adds. In a number of the counties this feeling has manifested itself to a very great extent, while in some localities it has reached the point of actual enthusiasm. We have before us the proceeding of a war meeting recently held in Westminster, the seat of justice of Carroll county, which is said to have been one of the largest and most enthusiastic gatherings of the people ever known in that region. Augustus Shriver, Esq., the presiding officer, as well as the assistants and those generally in attendance, are of the very bone and sinew of the country. Resolutions were adopted heartily approving of the war policy of the President, and pledging those present to the support of the cause of the Union, at any and every sacrifice.

A letter from Aquia creek informs us that Gen. Reynolds is now in command of the Pennsylvania Reserves, having succeeded Gen. Seymour, removed by Gen. McClellan. The exchange of prisoners is still progressing at Aiken's Landing, on the James river, through Adjutant-General Thomas. It is now confined to officers. The public around us are evidently momentarily expecting to hear of another battle in the vicinity of Slaughter's Mountain. A considerable portion of the army of Major-General Pope is now on the Rapidan, seven miles south and west of that now historical eminence. All of it is however, so posted, we apprehend, as successfully to resist an onslaught of double their own number. So we believe that whenever attacked it

A few of those arrested, however, were soon discharged, having furnished satisfactory evidence of their loyalty.--Most of them, however, were deemed guilty of at tempting to escape from the jurisdiction of the United States, contrary to the order from the War Department. They were accordingly confined in the county jail for the night, and this morning will be conveyed to Camp Douglas, sworn into the service, and made to do military duty for the term specified ier, to cover our workmen. Major Tifield was notified that a short distance from the road there was stored a considerable quantity of flour, and, with a sufficient force, he proceeded there and secured over one hundred bags of flour, marked Confederate States, amounting, probably, to 12,000 pounds.
