s on Pickens — they were as thick as bees. I could see them drilling on the beach, and the horses grazing near the fort. General Bragg has ordered all strangers away, or that they take position in the army. He has also moved his quarters from the hospital about a mile and a half in the woods. Two immense Columbiads, each weighing 16,000 pounds, reached West Point, Ga., last Sunday, on their way to Pensacola. From Washington. Washington, May 28.--Colonel Butler and Hon. Messrs. Ashley, of Ohio, and Dunn, of Indiana, arrived here to-day from Fortress Monroe, on the Government transport City of Richmond. All was quiet at the fortress, but some important military movements were in progress. Yesterday five transport vessels, with 2,500 troops, convoyed by the steamer Harriet Lane, went up Hampton Roads towards the mouth of James River and took possession of Newport News Point, and there entrenched themselves. The position is one of importance, as it commands the mo

Granada in the place of Gen. Jones, of Iowa. The belief that the President has determined to tender Col. Fremont a Major Generalship, elicits much gratification. Ex-Governor Banks is here by invitation of the Secretary of War. Brig. Gen'l McDowell, United States army, is to have command of the forces operating towards Richmond. It is understood to be General Scott's policy to put the younger class of officers into field service, and therefore it is said that Col. Meigs is employed on other duties than what relates to the construction of public buildings. Whilst the hands employed in the laboratory of the Navy-Yard were this afternoon engaged in filling gun caps, a small box of percussion powder suddenly exploded, by which Mr. Davis, a workman, was seriously if not fatally injured, and a young man slightly wounded in the breast. The damage to the premises is inconsiderable, although the accident occurred within a few feet of where 40,000 cartridges were lying.
latest Northern news, not with standing the blockade and other obstructions thrown in the way of communicating with that section: Seizure of Vessels. The schooner Crenshaw, Captain Winter, from Richmond, another prize from the Chesapeake blockading squadron, arrived at New York on Monday in charge of Lieut. Hunter, of the steam frigate Minnesota. She was laden with $75,000 worth of tobacco, and was taken in Hampton Roads while attempting to run the blockade. The schooner Haxall, Capt. Morse, from Richmond, bound to Baltimore, with about $75,000 worth of tobacco, has also arrived at New York as a prize. Forty-four river boats are laid up at Cincinnati, having no cargoes since the promulgation of Secretary Chase's order to establish a land blockade. Further Details from Alexandria. Everything appears to be comparatively quiet at Alexandria, Va. We make the subjoined extracts from the Washington Star of Tuesday evening: A Commander for the Advancing column.

troops at Fairfax Court-House. More Arrests in Washington. The Star states that yesterday a squad of men of company A, Union Regiment, arrested Mr. F. Markoe, late a fourth class clerk in the State Department, on a charge of having said in a conversation with J. C. Wright, in Georgetown, that he was in communication with the Southern Commissioners in Europe. Mr. M., at his examination before Justice Donn, explained what he said to the witness. He is an intimate acquaintance of A. Dudley Mann, one of the South Carolina Commissioners to Europe, and received, a few days before this conversation, a letter from him, in which he stated positively that England and France would recognize the Southern Confederacy. In the conversation, Wright expressed the opinion that the European powers would not recognize the Southern Confederacy; the prisoner expressed a different opinion, and referred to this letter as the ground for it. He declared that he was ready to show that letter to the P

Considerable excitement resulted, which was not allayed until Mr. Gerecke proved that he was a loyal citizen. Franklin Minor, late a clerk in the Census Bureau, and a lawyer by profession, was arrested by a squad of troops and taken before Justice Johnson, who released him upon his own security for a further hearing. M. A. Febrey, arrested on a charge of being a secessionist from Virginia, proved that he was a Union man, and on taking the oath of allegiance, was released. Robert Muir was dismissed by Justice Johnson. He was arrested by a squad of company A, Union regiment. The next demonstration. The New York Tribune says that a military movement is now under way in Western Virginia, which is to have an important effect upon the position of affairs. Though the particulars of the movement cannot be given, it is stated that it is not to be on Harper's Ferry, though that point is expected to come again into Federal hands by a flank movement.

dicative of events at Harper's Ferry. Passengers from Alexandria to-night state that nothing of especial importance has occurred there to-day. The outposts, however, were being extended further into Virginia. The probability is that the Brigade of Carl Schurz, Minister to Spain, who is now here, will be sent to Fortress Monroe. Conversations in diplomatic circles recently reported, to the effect that the Confederate Commissioners had an interview with Lord John Russell and M. Thouvenal, and had been told that they could not be recognized, are manifestly overrrated. There has been no arrival here later than the one which brought advices that the Commissioners of the Confederate States had not yet been received in London, and had not yet applied to be admitted in Paris. Of the same character is the report that the Seward proposition to accede to the Paris declaration abolishing privateering had been rejected. It is understood that these instructions were sent to Mr. Ada

ilitary Department. The boundaries of the military department to the command of which General Irwin McDowell has been assigned, comprises all that part of Virginia east of the Alleghany mountains and north of James river, except Fort Monroe, and sixty miles around that point. Arrests by secession forces at Fairfax. We hear by a gentleman from the neighborhood of Fairfax Court-House that three persons were arrested at that place yesterday by the secession troops. One of them, a Mr. Bennett, was arrested on the charge of "giving aid and comfort to the enemy" by shoeing the horse of a United States soldier. The charges against the two others our informant did not know. There were not more than one hundred secession troops at Fairfax Court-House. More Arrests in Washington. The Star states that yesterday a squad of men of company A, Union Regiment, arrested Mr. F. Markoe, late a fourth class clerk in the State Department, on a charge of having said in a conversatio

that these instructions were sent to Mr. Adams and Mr. Dayton. As there seems to be some sensitiveness in business circles about the recent seizures of telegraphic dispatches in all the principal Northern towns and cities, and a general apprehension that private business transactions may be exposed, it may not be improper to assure the public that there is no danger of any such exposure. Allen A. Burton, of Ky., has been appointed Minister resident to New Granada in the place of Gen. Jones, of Iowa. The belief that the President has determined to tender Col. Fremont a Major Generalship, elicits much gratification. Ex-Governor Banks is here by invitation of the Secretary of War. Brig.
