HJBADqCABTBBS ???? OP TBB POTOMAC,
Aug. 2D?Evening.?The reports published in
some of the newspapers that the losses of the
Fifth Corps in the battles of the 19th, 19th. and
81st of the present month, reach five thousand,
greatly exaggerate the facts. It is now defl
?altely ascertained that they do not exceed thir
ty -eight hundred, and as stragglers an d others
still continue to come in, and the sick are not
all accounted for, it is believed that the aggre
gate loss in all these engagements will not ex
ceed thirty-five hundred.
The loss of the 2d corps in Thorday's fight
will not exceed an aggregate of l,5f?>, accord
ing to the official statement, and it is hoped
and believed that when all who are now within
our linee report, 1,200 will embrace the entire
The rebels are said to be nsing the Weldon
railroad below Ream's Station, and running
their supplies thence to Petersburg around our
left by wagon. As this requires a large force
for train guards, and to defend the road against
incursions of our cavalry, It cannot be either a
very profitable or pleasant means of communi
caticn, without taking into consideration the
lof s of time involved.
Arrangements have been made, it is under
stood, for rturying the rebel dead left on the
field of last Thursday's battle. The fact that
the enemy did not perform the funereal rites
for their own dead, nor carry off all their
wound? d on that occasion, Is pretty palpable
evid'uee flat, although they drove back our
iSecoml Corpa, they did not achieve any very
complete or creditable victory.
T. -day nothing ot interest has occurred. The
usual cannonading and picket firing wa-?
rather more brisk, and continues this evening,
but it is without any results of consequence.
I ROM THE FRONT.
The Charlotte Vanderbilt, with the army
mail and passengers, arrived here this morn
ing. She reports everything unusually quiet
up to ren o'clock yesterday morning, the nour
at which she left City Point.
Squads of rebel deserters come into our lines
daily, all of whom ask permission to be sent
North. The Vanderbilt brought up fifteen of
these deserters, who were sent to Provost
Marshal Ingraham to be disposed of.
There are quite a number ot rebel prisoners

guard. They will be forwarded to the prison
ers' camp at Point Lookout in a few days.

The following circular note of the 31st of
July, addressed by Mr. Pacheco, her Catholic
Majesty's Minister for Foreign Affairs, to Mr.
Pbkbt, Charge d'Affaires of the United States
at Madrid, on the subject of new regulations at
the Forts of Tarifa and Isla Verde, in the
Straits of Gibraltar, is published for the in
formation of American ship captains trading
to the Mediterranean :
Department of State?i Circuinr.)
San Ildefonso, 31 July, 1361.
Dear Sie : Having brought to the knowl?
i edge of the Secretary of War the action taken
I on various occasions near tbe Government of
her Majesty by some foreign representatives
' accredited to this court, with the object of in
( troducing some favorable modification of the
?' rules observed at the fortress of Tarifa and
I Isla Verde to oblige vessels navigating the
iurisdictional waters Of those fortresses to
lolst the flag of their nation, a practice which
they often neglect, alleging a very improbable
, Ignorance in vessels which so repeatedly pass
? the straits, the aforesaid Secretary replied to
) me, under date of 21st ultimo, that the Depart
ment in his charge and at that date had Issued
I to tbe Captain General ot Andalusia, who has
? under his immediate command the fortresses
! of Tarifa and Isla Verde, the instructions fol
' lowicg, to which In future the commaadants
. of the said fortresses will adhere :
1st. To every vessel which on crossing the
line of said fortresses, within range of its
' cannon does not show the flag of her nation,
' (the Spanish flag floating over tbe fortress,)
1 notice sball be given of tbe neglect she Is fall
ing Into by discharging a cannon loaded with
powder only. . . ,.
2d If after the lapse of ten minutes she should
not have hoisted her flag, a shotted gun shall
be fired ahead and across her prow.
3d. If notwithstanding these two indicated
notices and the lapse of another ten minutes
she omits to hoist the flag, a third discharge
with ball shall be fired at her masts.
In bringing the preceding disposition to your
knowledge so tbat you may give a translation
of them to the Government of the American
Union, the Queen, my Sovereign Lady, flatters
herself that the Cabinet of Washington will
find in the measure adopted a fresh proof of
the sentiments of deference which her Govern
ment entertains for the nation you so worthily
I avail of this occasion to ofler yo? the assu
rances of my distinguished consideration.

occupied by the light boat?, previous to their de
struction by the rebels.
From sunset until sunrise a light will be swan?
from each of the schoon? rs. The reason given by
captala? of v?asela, chartered and ornea by ttie
United States Quartermaster Department, for
archering in the Petomac river at night, was.
that tbey feared that tbey would run their ve?a -Is
aground if they attempted to run past the shoals
after dark. The lamps placed on the schooner?
will giva alight aufficlntly strong to enable all
vuotate pa*? up and down the rivorwith safety,
provided tbey govern themselves by the charts
provided by United States Coast Survey.
From and after this date.no vets?) proeellM

auoh weather as by running the loss of the vessel
, or cargo might be endangered.

Bush of Converte to the D?mocratie Wigicam?
IHsmay of the Original. Jacobs'_A meeting of
the National Democratic Association was held
last evening at their hall, opposite the Metro
politan Hotel, and it was largely attended?the
moot of the erowd being on hand waiting the
news from Chicago. The non-arrival of the
news of the selection of a candidate for the
Presidency postponed the display of the new
flag, as was contemplated, but in front of the
hall a new transparency was displayed bear
ing a representation o? an open book, on the
pages of which were the words, ?? The Union
and the Constitution.''
In the absence of the president. John F. Cal.
Ian was called to the chair, and W. U. Mlnnix
acted as secretary.
An invitation was given to persons to sign
the constitution and become members, when
over thirty walked forward to the secretary's
Among the signers were some most unex
pected ones, apparently, and the Original
Jacobs of the association expressed considera
ble sotto roce disgust at the turn things were
taking. Muttered exclamations or "confound
it, just look at that man signing !" ?? Yes, he
was the inkiest kind of Wigwam wooley-head,
four years ago !" ?' Oh they'll rush in on us as
the Bell and Everett crowd did into the Re

And so the comments ran around. In fact
the "faithful from the start'seemed decidedly
uneasy lest these "eleventh hour laborers"
and "latter day saints" should be accepted on
pay-day as equally worthy with themselves,
who had borne the heat and bnrden of the dav.
The business first in order was tbe consid
eration of the resolutions offered by Dr. Clay
ton, declaring it to be the duty of the Govern?
ment to take immediate steps to exchange pri
soners, who are now dying rapidly, which
resolutions were nnder consideration ou the

were taken np, when
Mr. D. Rutherford moved to lay them on the
table: lost?yeas 18, nays -ji.
Mr. Lakenan was opposed to accumulating:
a load on an overloaded horse, and thonghtthe.
resolutions should not have been introduced
there, although be privately endorsed them,
and he believed every Democrat Individually
seconded him. The association had nothing to
do with the prisoners, and it could not aid
them. The more who die the more sin the
Government would have to answer for. He
was opposed to taking action on anything iu

Railway Diptrib?tihg Post Officb.?
Hon. ?. N. Zevely, Third Assistant Postmaster
General, sorr.e time ago conceived the idea of
facilitating the transmission and prompt de
livery of letters, newspapers and mail matter
generally between this city and New York and
intermediate points by a system of rail car dis
?ributniir pott offices, whereby the work of
stamping, assorting and distributing mail mat
ter will be done in a car prepared for the pur
pose while the train is in motion. One of the
new cnrs for the purpose was at the Baltimore
and Ohio railroad depot last night, and was
visited by nigh officials of the Post Office De
partment, and by a number of railroad men
and invited guests, who were warm in their
approbation of not only the system about tu be
inaugurated but of the workmanship of the
car and tbe commodious and perfect manner
in which tbe interior is arranged.
The car was constructed at the car-works of
tbe Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Co., at Mount
lare, and was completed on Saturday last,
and is now being run over the road to wear off
tbe roughness. The dimensions of the car are
45 feet 5 inches in length in the clear by 9 feet
I inches wide, with a height of about 7 feet at
either side, but, ?tbeingonthe "double-decker"
principle, the center is fully 9 feet. On either
side are words informing the public that it is
tbe "through line between New York and
Washington." There are also the usual aper
tures through which letters may be conve
niently dropped in tor mailing, in the Inside
are t ivo ca^es, each containing two hundred
'pigeon holes," of rather larger size than ordi
nary, and forty boxes, each one foot square,
so arranged that the matter placed in them
car not be jostled out by the motion o? the car.
? here is in front of each case a narrow shelf for
tbe accommodation of the clerks, with drawers
beneath and hooka for the mail pouches, wtiile
on th? opposite side is a large table for stamp
ing purposes. There are also closets for
clothes, sofas, water coolers, and every conve
nience for those who shall travel with the car;
and it is fitted up with the most approved ven
as soon as the train starts the clerks assigned
to duty in this novel postoflice will commence
the distribution of all matter Into boxes for the
several localities to which the matter is di
rected. The way mails will be made up first,
and at each station mail matter intended for
the particular locality will be pnt off, and
matter for other points on the route received.
The great advantage of this system is that cor
respondents can mail their letters at the last
moment, and even when the car may be mov
ing off, yet with the assurance that all letters
will reach their destination safely and with
unusual dispatch. This city will reap many
advantages from the .?y^tem, for all mail mat
ter for the Departments and for citizens will
be arranged upon the cars, and will be handed
to the several carriers and messengers within
five minutes after the arrival of the mail. So
at New York, for at that end of the route also
a similar distribution will take place.
The car now here was fitted up at the expense
o? the Baltimore and Ohio Rai'r^ad, und-r the
direction of Messrs. W. P. Smici and F. Per
kins, from the design of Hon. A. N. Zevely,
Th'-d Assistant Postmaster General, who will
personally superintend the inauguration of the
system. In a short time a similar car, now
building at tbe works of the Camden and
Amboy Railroad, will he completed, and as
scon as it arrives here the plan will be carried
This is an entirely new arrangement in this
part of the country, although on some of the
Western roads smaller cars are running, and
the system bas been found very successful
Last spring an experimental trip was made
in one of the ordinary cars of the road, between
tjis citv and New York. Notwithstanding the
noveitv of the thinz, and the fact that the clerks
worked und'T disadvantages from the motion
of the car, the e-?p?riment was a very success
ful one, over ?,(*)0 letters b^iug distributed
facb trip; and thi*. tod when tney hid not one
die eighth of th.* conveniences to be afforded
bv the new car.

at the United States was found on Boyle and
