From camp Page.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Camp Page, near Williamsburg, Aug. 24, 1861 A few words only to the Dispatch this morning before the mail closes. I see it stated in Northern quarters that the Federal vessels are sinking hulks at the months of our rivers, for the purpose of preventing ingress or egress. I do not believe one word of it, as far as relates to the mouths of the York and the James. It is intended, doubtless, as a blind to the operatives on the Peninsula.--But they might as well expect to climb to Heaven on a rope ladder as to attempt to fool General Magruder. When the time comes, Wool will get a good wooling, and Old Point will point a moral, and adorn sundry tales (?) that will be turned for protection to that quarter. I see that Henry Wilson is to command a battalion of flying artillery. It is a good appointment by the Federal Government, for he will be au fait as a courier from the field of battle, as Manassas will testify. W
