Charleston. Thoy have built formidable
butteries on Folly Island, bearing on .the
southern extremity of Morris lelutul.
They are fortify in,

tho iron-clads nnd transports are in that
.vicinity. A dimoulty .occurred nt 'Camp I

k'yu general order, just issued,, nil icbels
delivered at Cbly Point up lo May Clh,
and all captured anil pato'el in Virginia
or North Carolina up to May 1st, are de
clared duly exchanged. The New Yoik
7VJM says tho President received from the
hcudf'iiurters of tho Auny of tho Potomac,
an original letter from Jeff. Davis, written
lo one of his Colonels, in which ho speaks
gloomily of affairs in tho Southwest and
Yirginiu. Tho French, up to tho 21st of
April, had not obtuined possession of Pu-
eblti. Jumoinfort litul been reinforceil,
and was hIioiiI to take llie ollensive. The
Mexicans exhibited the most desperate
courage. Tho Richmond Sentinel, ol the
12th. says that thu Xalcher. Courier pre
tends to have information that Ivirby
Smith had beaten Dunks' forces in Louis
una. The Atlanta Conjedemcij says that
the right flank of Rragg's tinny rests on
McMiuville. The line extends westward
ihiough Winchester. Shelliyvilli! and (Jo

tered icbels to take the oath of allegiance
before the 1st of .May, or prepare to leave
before the Ifilii. Dispatcher; from Grant
have been received at Washington up to
the 8th, which express his satisfaction nt
the nppeaiuneo of thing? in his vicinity,
and slate Ihal Port Hudson had undoubt
edly been evacuated, except hy a small gar
rison and the heavy artillery. The Spring

in Kansas, beyond which the Union Paci
fic railroad policy commences. Jt Is in
tended to have forty miles opened this year.
The nails, spikes, mils, etc. have nliViidy
been purchased, and ihe work will be pu-di-cd
foiwanl witli vigor. Hilton I lead news
of the Kith, says that the iron-elads have
been thoroughly repaired, and nil injuries
remidied. It is generally believed that the
l:Vincli guns will be lejilueed by lho of

A skirmish with u few rebel cavalry at
Warrington, resulted in killing one and
wounding several others, our los was three
wounded! The last of our wounded on the
other side ol Rhappahannoek have been
brought over. They received as good care
while they remained with the enemy as
cou'd 1)0 expected. Our surgeons have
been with them ever since Hooker came
ovor this side. The medical stores Font
over by suggestion of Gen. I'c wore tnken
possession of by the rebels, but were dealt
oe.l on ifiu rcniiihitiou of our surgeons.
The dead of both r.rmies have been buried '
The evidence in Gen. Rucl's. case has ar
rived ut Washington. There is reasons to
believe that the fimliiiir of tho court will
show thai the President had ample reasons'
,lor removing Duel, -and that lie erred in
not i cmoving him sooner. Hooker was in
Washington on the loth, had an interview
with the President, ami returned nt night.
The MorA7 says that rumor ha it that
he retains his position unaided by Halleck,
for another advance whenever it shall be
arranged. The rebels report that 1 1 of
Grants cavalry entered and burnt Crystal
Springs on the lfiih. The 1'ederals are ra
iiilbrciug ut Swollen Springs, nnd Grant
will probably advance east., mid not direct
on V icktiburg so say rebel reports.

Potomac lost a large number of prisoners
and missing, und Unit its dead would ex
ceed the number in ihe urmy reports here
tofore published. 'Flint it left on thcfouth
bank of the Rappahannock 24 pieces of

essary by the Government.

West Point, ou ihe l.'ltli, who are throw
ing up inirenchmeuts across trom Ihu Mut
aliomy to the Pamunkey river. From the
fact that a number of officers and men
daily r.rrive from the Rappahannock to get
leave of absence to go home, it is regarded
as tin indication that the army will not
move nt present.
An official dispatch from Paducuh, Ivy.,
to-day, says that on the night of the 12th,
50 men of the 1st Tennessee cavahy were
taken ip the ''eunes-eu river on gunboats,

it says, It is idle to deny that tho cam
palgn of Gen. Hooker, which bi'gan au
spiciously, has cntne to a .premature und
inefr dual end. His losses tire considera
bly heavier than publN'ned, and the esti
mate will not amount to less than 17,000
killed, wotinded and missing. Tho nctiuil

he n little reduced. To is said to nihnit
a loss of 18,000. which is far greater Uian
ours, in proportion to tho strength of his
army. Gen. Hooker's army still largely
outnumbers thu rebel forces, nnd is unde
niably in good spirits nnd condition..

high, fall but not broad forehead. In con
