Tbe Washington correspondent of the
Cleveland Lender of the 24th Buys: "tbe
number of troops in the city (including those
at Alexandria) reaches nearly 42,000.
That we are on the evo of exciting events,
it surely true. The number in Fortress Mon
roe is now said to be 6,000, with more to go.
It has also transpired that the government
nas already accepted over 250,000 soldiers
for the three months and three years, or
during the war. Over 5,000 arrived here
Gen. Fitch yesterday received a telegrab
from Columbus, ordering tbe 19th regi
ment to be supplied with one day's rations
and held ready to march at any moment.
They will probably go to-day or to-morrow
morning. Cleveland Leader, 28lh.
We observe that some journals whose
-sympathies with secession are but thinly
disguised, are much exercised at the recent
seizure of dispatches in tbe telegraph offices.
They think it is very unconstitutional and
wrong. As yet, howover, we have heard
do complaints from Union men or Union
journals. Nobody need be alarmed who
has not been dabbling in treason. Trib. -Taking
th RiarossisiuTir Nobly. Capt.
Lee, of the United State Navy, in command of
the Vandalia, ordered to th East ladies, learn
ing at th Cape of Good Hope that a rebel war
had broken out, promptly decided to return
hum with his ship, where her and his services
are wanted. There ara times when (as in the
cat of Colonel Croghan in 1811) it is the duty
of an officer to disobey his orders. Inn was
one of those occasions. The Vandalia is at the
navy yard, ready for her work. Captain Lee's
orders were " honored in the breach. , He de
serves the thanks of the Government and the
people. N. Y. Pott.
Gov. Dennison has announced that Ohio's
contingent of troops for the three year's ser
vice is twenty one regiments. This in
cludes the eleven at Camp Dennison, the
two at Washington City, and part of the
niue now in the Stale service, provided they
will enlist for the required term. If they
do not, more troops will be taken from tbe
militia of the reserve for this purpose.
Tbe ladies of Washington have prepared

Troops Moved into Western Virginia.
Twonty-fivo hundred U. S. troops were
moved Monday from the Ohio river to Graf
ton, the junction of the two western branch
es of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.
among them were tbe 14th and 21st Ohio
regiments, which wore lately at Camp Tay
lor. Grafton is about one hundred miles
from Wheeling. ; It bas been reported that
there were fifteen hundred secossion troops
at that point. If that is so, there is a pros
pect of a brush with tbe enemy. Doubtless
this movoment was made with a view to the
approaching convention of Western Virginia.
The 21st regiment is composed almost
wholly of companies from the north-western
counties of Ohio; among them are two from
Wood county, two from Putnam, two from
Hancock, one from Seneca, and one from
Ottowa. ' Many of these men are personally
known to three-fourths of the people of
Sandusky county. Should they bo called
iuto conflict, we will warrant every man to
do his duty. Tbey all remember F't Steph-
eosou and tbe gallant Crogban.
One of the biggest of the columbiads at Fort
Monroe, is bearing directly upon the house of

off some day. Accidents will happen. Louu

It is stated that the War Department
will probably accept the proposition of the
proprietor of the St, Nicholas Hotel, N. Y.,
to supply the army with bread. His offer
is, to erect large ovens, and bake all the
bread for tbe troops while they remain in
Washington the governmenttosupply him
with flour and give bim a site for the ovens,
in or near tbe city, and he will bear all tbe
expenses of baking during tbe War.

received 1100 pairs of shoes bought by Col.
Whittlesy, for the troops at Camp Taylor.
About 1500 shirts were received yesterday, and
1000 will be received to-day. These are to be
immediately distributed. Herald.
It is said that 864 dispatches respecting
the movements and organization of troops,
were sent from headquarters at Columbus
between April 23d and May 24th.
The Richmond papers swear fiercely that all
the adherents of Western Virginia to the old
Union are traitors, and must be promptly pun
lulled as such. We will try to let our readers
know when the hanging is going to begin.
It is said thai at least 400 members of
the 7th N. Y. regiment will remain in
Washington, or immediately return there,
as privates or officers in other organizations.
' The movement from Washington on Ar
lington Heights, was not undertaken an
hour too soon. On Thursday the ground
near Gen. Lee's residence had already been
staked arouud for a rebel encampment.
Wheat, in many parts of the county has suff
ered severely from tbe recent rains. That on

The Ohio Boys in Baltimore.
The Baltimoro Clipper of Friday says:
The 1st and 2d regiments Ohio Militia,
commanded by Cols. McCook and Wilson,
reached this city yosterdav attemoon nbout
three o'clock;- from Philadelphia, whero
they have boon encamped since the 20tli of
April. : They numbered 2,000 moo, and
marched from the Philadelphia depot thro'
Lombard slr.oet to the Cnmdcn Station,
where cars were in waiting to transport
them to Washington." They were a fine
body of men, being mostly young, and evi
dently inured to hardship. ., j
During; tbe march one ot too number
named James Riddle, of Company K., 2d
regiment, was overcome by heat. Ho was
assisted to a buggy passing at the time, and
conducted to the cars. The most ample ar
rangements were made for (ho transporta
tion of trocps by both the Philadelphia
and the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Com
panies, and no dotention was suffered far
ther than was necessary to change cars.
The embarkation at the Camden . Station
whs superintended in person by W. P,
Smith and Oliver Hoblitzoll, Esqs., aDd
was effected in an orderly and expeditious
manner. - " "
The Detroit Advertiser says that after
the artillery service in that city, some in
teresting incidents took place. One young
fellow after taking tho oath, took offhiYcap,
and holding it up said : "Yes, and so do
I swear to avenge tbe death of Col. Ells
worth as soon as au opportunity shall offer."
Another who measures six feet and an incb,
on being asked by Lieut. Loomis if bo used
intoxicating liquors, replied, "Ido'sir, and I
always pay for it" "Do you evor get in
toxicated," asked the Lieutenant. "Some
times I do, air." "Then," replied the ques
tioner, "you cannot be received.'! . "Why
not!" said tho man, "It's a perfect shame
if I can't be permitted to kill one of tbom
bloody Southerners because I take a nip
now and then." A young man who stated
that be was eighteen years of age, and a
first rate horseman, said : "I have walked
ten miles to join this company, for I want
a chance to kill the villains who assassinato
such men as Colonel Ellsworth." He was
permitted to sign tbe roll, with the under
standing that if on trial he should prove to
be a good horseman, he should be retained
in the company. '
Ducking Mail Agents.
Two or three days since the Union mail
agent on tbe Pacific Railroad was "ducked"
in the Osage river by a company of Seces
sion troops. - Mr. P. L. Foy, the Postmas
ter of St. Louis, instantly cut off the mail
on that road. Tbe Secessionists, anxiously
inquired when it would be resumed. He
replied, "Whenever the State authorities
guarantee, tho personal safety of tbe mail
agents, without regard to their political
opinions." The authorities at Jefferson
City sent Mr. Foy a long unpaid telegraphic
dispatch. ' He refused to receive it, reply
ing that tbey might pay their own tele
grams. Shortly after the dispatch came
again, prepaid, and brought the required
guarantee, and also the assurance that tba
captain under whose encouragement tba
outrage was committed had been removed 1
Next morning the mail commenced running
again. . Gov. Jackson and bis traitorous as
sociates, 'like tba Baltimore Plug Uglies,
have heard from the North!
