Active movements.

The circular of Adjutant-General Cooper, in relation to the enrollment of conscripts, and the ar of persons absenting themselves from the army furnishes a hopeful anticipation of the future conduct of the war. By following these instruction, the ranks of our armies will be speedily filled up and placed upon a footing sufficiently powerful to overwhelm the hordes of the abolition monarch, without regard to the "three hundred thousand" so appealed for by the Governors of the "loyal States." If the enrolling officers are zealous and active, (says the circular of General Cooper,) we shall make our enemy taste of the bitterness of negligent, we shall continue to witness its revages on our own soil. This significant intimation will inspire the people of the Confederacy with renewed energy. To follow up our recent victories by carrying the war to the very doors of our insolent foe is the ardent desire of every soldier and we are pleased to observe that the orders of the Government, having in view a campaign of unparalleled activity are producing a most salutary effect.
