he army of the Potomac, and subsequently of a division. From July, 1861. to February, 1862. he was stationed in Southern Maryland, on the north shore of the Potomac, his duty being to prevent the rebels crossing the river, and to amuse them with their river stockade while McClellan was getting his army into trim. This difficult duty he performed admirably. Maj. Gen. John Pope. Major-Gen. John Pope is a man about forty years of age, and a native of Kentucky. He is a son of Governor Nathaniel Pope, of Virginia, who went to Kentucky before the birth of John, and, after living in Kentucky a few years removed to Illinois John, the son, entered the West Point Academy in 1838. He graduated in 1842, and was appointed to the army from the State of Illinois, entering the service as a Brevet 3d Lieutenant for gallant and meritorious conduct in several conflicts at Monterey, the brevet bearing date from September . On the 23d of February, 1847, he was brevetted Captain for gallan

Nashville, June 28. --At the special second conference of clergymen before Governor Johnson all declined to take the oath of allegiance, Most of them were sent to the Penitentiary, prior to their removal to General Halleck, for the purpose of being exchanged for Tennessee prisoners. Many Nashville churches will be without pastors to-morrow. Among those sent to durance were the Rev Drs. Baldwin, Schouc, and Sawvle, Methodists, and Ford and Howell, Baptists. The Rev. Dr. Wharton was allowed some days' grace on account of illness. The Rev. Mr. Killett did not appear. The Rev. Mr. Hendricks is expected to take the oath. Catholic livings, being loyal, were not disturbed. Affairs at Alexandria. Alexandria, June 30. --Capt. McMillan, of company E, 4th Ohio, fell overboard yesterday, and before assistance could be extended to him he was drowned. The hospitals in this city are full of sick and wounded soldiers, nu

fested. It is stated that the tone of the last dispatches received at the State Department is not altogether satisfactory, but that nothing is said from which it could be at all inferred that the European Powers designed taking any immediate steps toward mediation.--The defeat of the Militia bill in the Canadian Parliament has not improved John Bull's temper, and he will seize upon the reverse at Charleston with as much avidity as he did upon that in Banks department. On this subject Hon. J. A. Gurley has received a letter from a highly intelligent adopted citizen of Ohio, who has been in England for the past six months, spending much time in the cotton district. He says: Firstly — I have the best reasons for knowing that intervention in our affairs was determined upon by England and France some months ago, and for the reasons, amongst others, I gave you in my letter of March last. Secondly — This determination would have been acted upon before this had not the contest b
ervening space. The left hand one is occupied by Gen. McClellan, the other by his father-in-law, Gen. Marey, the Chief of Staff. Both are furnished alike, each has a stove, camp stools and table, corsage camp bed, desk and toilet materials, and various wine bottles lying about denote the means used even by Major- Generals to beguile weary hours and entertain visitors. In front of the General's tent a hundred feet wide street runs to the opposite side of the camp, where two or three peaked Sibley tents are pitched to accommodate the soldiers acting as the camp guard. On each side of this Street tents are pitched, whose occupants decrease in honor according as they are farther away from the General. There are the tents of the staff officers — the Provost Marshal General, the Adjutant General, the Quartermasters and Commissaries, the Aids to the Commander-in-chief, &c. A row behind these, on each side, is devoted to under officers and clerks, and a third row to servants. Outside

We have the grandest military triumph over the enemy, and Richmond must fall. C. C. Fulton, Proprietor American, and Agent Associated Press. After waiting patiently for the news, as promised above, until midnight, we were surprised at the reception of the following dispatch: Baltimore, Sunday, June 29--11 P. M. The Secretary of War Decides that nothing can be telegraphed relative to affairs on the Peninsula. Have tried our best to get it off. C. C. Fulton, Agent Associated Press. As a commentary on this, we append the following, which was received from the War Department yesterday afternoon: War Department, Washington, June 29, 2 o'clock P. M. As soon as the Department can obtain exact in formation of the state of affairs in front of Richmond, it will be imparted to the public, whether good or bad.

ith two iron plates; in fact, my upper works are completely riddled. One shot struck the steam valve, bending it, which slowed us down — fortunately not stopping the engine. As you ordered me to return after delivering the dispatches, I passed the batteries again at night, but was not fired at. Ten shots struck the vessel in all, to say nothing of the bullets in the wood work from the sharpshooters. Very respectfully, your ob't serv't. E. P. McCrea, Lieutenant Commanding. Commander J. M. Gillis, commanding naval forces, James river. The great battle before Richmond,[from the N. Y. World, June 30.] A battle, which resulted, as we are informed by a trustworthy authority, in the grandest Union triumph of the war, and which would probably insure the capture of Richmond, took place at the close of last week, but the particulars we are not permitted to publish, Secretary Stanton having taken upon himself to prohibit the sending of all dispatches from Washington giving
be fulfilled. In the event of success before Richmond, the war on the Atlantic, like the war on the Mississippi, will virtually be over. There will still remain small armies to be dispersed here and there, forts to be taken, guerrillas to be shot. But the critical question of the division of the Union will have been determined. For there is no section of country south of Virginia and Tennessee in which the rebels can subsist such an army as could hope to resist the Union forces. Davis and Lee, retreating into North Carolina or the Gulf States, with perish in a given period of time from want of animal food, just as Beauregard's army is scattering in Mississippi from the same cause. 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. It is in order to transport these cattle across the river that Vicksburg is so resolutely holding out. By this time Fa
l still further rejoice, at the resignation of the office seeker, whose place is not the field of battle, at the head of an army. Gen. Pope is a man of military knowledge and genius. He has shown his energy and talent in the Western campaign. Fremont has exhibited no military skill, but has proved himself to be incompetent to command an army, though highly skillful in expending the public money, and parading himself in a pompous manner, with a "body-guard" of foreigners who can not speak English. It is indeed fortunate if the Administration has got rid of this office-seeking Abolitionist. It is fortunate for the country; for his ignorance of military operations would certainly have brought further and greater disasters upon the army of that department. Let him be commander- in-chief of the Abolitionists, with "no subordinate," since he has resigned his military commission for being placed in a subordinate position. He is fit only for Garrison's army of destructive, who desi
