Apprehended insubordination among the Federal troops. --A dispatch from Philadelphia, May 23, to the New York Herald, says: Recent exposures, made by the independent portion of the press of this city, regarding the evident peculations in the army supplies of this State, by contractors and those in power, have led to an investigation by the United States Grand Jury. Two blankets were taken before them to-day, on a flimsy article, weighing one pound six ounces, the same as has generally been supplied to the Pennsylvania troops at the cost $3.60. The other was a Massachusetts troop blanket, thick, warm and closely woven, weighing seven pounds. So shameful has been the treatment of many of the three months volunteers that most of them will certainly return home as soon as their terms expire, unless the State authorities show a better disposition to protect them from speculators, and fears are entertained of their demoralization. This state of affairs is most deplorable.
Cairo matters — a fleet to come down the Mississippi and attack Memphis. The following is an extract from a private letter received in Memphis, Tenn., from a gentleman in Cairo, dated May 24th. Its statements may be relied upon as substantially correct. The writer says: "Cairo is now quiet, notwithstanding the presence of 4,000 troops. No shipments are permitted to be made from this point to Kentucky, Missouri or southward — every kind of provision, even vegetables, being condemned as contraband and 'aid and comfort to the rebels.' During the past week the following articles have been taken from steamers by order of Col. Prentiss, and confiscated; 1,410 bags corn, 200 bags meal, 1,355 bags and barrels potatoes, 550 sacks bran, 30 casks ale, 950 barrels flour, and 1,250 barrels lime. "The report prevails that Col. Rodgers, of the United States Navy, who has been so journing in our midst for a few days, visited Mound City yesterday, for the purpose of purchasing the s
Mexican News. New Orleans May 25. --The New Orleans brig Angelo has arrived, with Vera Cruz advices to the 20th instant. She brings $6,000 in specie. A Manatitlan letter says gold has been taken from the waters of the Malatery; the diggings are considered very rich. There was great excitement caused by the discovery. Business was dull.
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.from the Greenbrier White Sulphur Springs. White Sulphur Springs May 25. The anti Ordinance or submission vote here of thirty seven is mortifying to the citizens of the locality. It was swelled by an invasion of voters from Anthony's Creek Among the voters proper, it is true, there are a few submissionists; but they are much less respectable in numbers than the poll would indicate. It is a pity that in a county so much benefited by Southern liberality in the summer season — whose prosperity is to be so immensely enhanced by the increased throng of Southern people under the Confederacy (if not now, certainly after the war)--should give one vote against the Ordinance. But, while this is a shame and a pity, we are consoled by the reflection that the number so voting is few, and the vote for the Ordinance is overwhelming. The feeling of the community generally is most decided and patriotic. Greenbrier is true, and will so approve hers
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.affairs in Winchester — war Ricmors — a trip to Harper's Ferry — Stoppage of mail intercourse, &c. Winchester, Va. May 28. It is pleasant to be able to say that I have no war news to send you. Our good old town is as serene to day as the blue May sky that bends above her. All apprehension of an early attack from the Yankees has disappeared. The passage of companies, battalions, and regiments through our streets has ceased. The only military spectacle that enlivens them is furnished by an occasional squad of Continentals--Company K, 4th Regiment, noted for their constant attendance upon John Brown, from the 18th of October, 1859, to the end of his valuable life, and now commanded by Capt. Avis, the jailor of that worthy,--on their way to mount guard over the Hospital, or the thirty-two pounders sent up from Richmond. A large number of these guns are still here, enough having been sent down, it is thought, for all necessary purposes. <
