Before evacuating Corinth, Beauregard contracted for the delivery to his army in Mississippi of 200,000 head of cattle and sheep from the States lying west of the Mississippi.

But speculation is useless until we have something definite upon which to base it, be it good or bad. Resignation of Gen. Fremont.[from the Hartford (Conn.) times, June 28.] All true friends of the country will rejoice at the recent act of the President in placing Gen. Pope, a true soldier of proved military skill and efficiency, over General Fremont, the mere political Abolition aspirant for the Presidency; and they will still further rejoice, at the resignation of the office seeker, whose place is not the field of battle, at the head of an army.
