General McClcllan's hold on tho army lit said
to bo universal and complete, and It Is predic
ted from this fact, that thcro will bo trouble on
account of his removal. Wo do not sympnthlze
with this notion, because wo know If there he
patriotism anywhere, It is In tho army. Our
bravo soldiers aro chiefly anxious to meet the
rebels and whip them; and It matters not so
much who lends them to victor), as that they
hive the opportnnlt to achieve a complete
triumph over tho defiant and lusolcut foe.
This they will hnve. A gentleman recently
from tho front, tells us that notwithstanding
tho prlvatlous and sufferings which our army
endures, all Is lonie with the most unexampled
fortitude and without complaint. God bless

victor. This Is all that Is needed to cheer the
loyal heart lioth in and out of tho army.

Mr. Rolicrt Waters, ono of tlio watchmen, In

was requested by ono of the prisoners to allow
him to obtain a drink of water, which he ac
ceded to, thus allowing the prisoner to pass
him. No sooner had this been done, than ono
of tho most desperate of the gang seized Mr.
Waters by tho throat, and, with tho assistance
of the others, gagged him, threw him upon the

dered perfectly helpless, Mr. Waters considered
discretion tho better part of valor, and prom

Tnc Field op the Clotii op Gold. Mr
James M. Nixon, tho Indefatigable proprietor
oi cuo urcmorue circus, nas upon mo ram a
scenic hippo-dramatic spectacle that will far
supersedo any equestrian splendor ever brought
out In Washington. It Is entitled the "Field of
tho Cloth of Gold, or the Bright DjSofChlv

interest and startling representations. In It

of tho gay scenes attendant upou a royal carol,

children, and horses aro cmplocd to glvo It
tono and effect. It will probabl lw produced
on Tuesday next.
This spectacle w as one of Mr. Nixon's origi
nal and early successes in tho profession of
which ho Is now Grand Master. At the Hlppo
dJome It ran two hundred nights, and'ereated
unparalleled urom In New York, Boston, Phil

was patented under ids guidance and super

attention of persons suffering from imperfect
hearing, sight, or any malady of tho throat or
catarrhal pulmonary affection, to tho card of
Dr. Yon Afoschzlsker, the eminent oculist aud
auribt. His success In tho treatment of the'tye

ous cures ho has effected in restoring sight to
the blind and hearing to the deaf, speak for
themselves. Dr. Von Moschzlsker has also,
lately paid particular attention to diseases of the
throat, as It Is well known that numerous cases
of deafness arise from throat diseases and ca
tarrhal affections, and ho performed somo re
markable cures in diseases of the air passages,
we, therefore advise all thoso w ho suffer from
any maiauy or tno tnroai or caiarrn puimonar
