MISCELLANEOUS. Gleatiings from the Field of Conflict* The army correspondent of the New York Time* says Gen. McClellan’s army, when lie retreated from before Richmond, consisted of sixty thousand men. At six o'clock, on Tues day morning, they arrived at Haxall’s Land ing, weary with the exhaustion of five battles and continuous night marches, with little food and scarcely any sleep, unable to understand, and therefore bewildered and partially discour aged by the constant falling back, but not pre pared to be beaten, nor exhausted of courage. At eight o’clock, Tuesday morning, our forces having been concentrated at Malvern Hills, the line of battle was formed. At nine o’clock the reliels opened the battle with a heavy lire of artillery, to which we responded from numerous batteries which had been placed along the hill-sides in commanding positions. Tin- day was a Is-autiful one, clear and cloud less. unless from the smoke of the incessant ar tillery tire: the position a line one, an open country, with rolling ground fringed by thick woods: the James river in sight, and on its waters, clean'd for action, two gunlMiats. the Jacob Bell and Galena, whose llJO-pounders jKiured awful missiles of death into the woods above the river, by whose sides ndiel reinforce ments were coming in heavy ntimhers. The tire of the artillery on the hills was kept up during the day, the rebels getting decidedly the worst of it. Facing this as long as they could, they would at length wheel around and march hack again in good order, leaving the ground coven'd w ith their fallen. Again and again, w ith new regi ments, this was repeated, and again and again shot aud shell, grape and canister, gave them awful punishment. It was too much to be borne, and at last they no longer marched back in columns, but ran hurrying for life from the terrible ministers of death. lip to six o’clock it w as an equal game—if anything, we were getting the worst of it. At six o'clock in the evening, Gen. I’orter sent word by an aid, who drove hastily up, dust covered aud well nigh exhausted, to Gen. Sum ner. who, as senior general, was in command, saying that he must have reinforcements or lose the day. Gen. Sumner immediately di rected that two of Richardson's brigades— Gen. Caldwell'* aud Gen. Meagher's—lie sent to his assistance. Gen. Heintzelman at the same time sent two of Hooker's—Gen. Sickles’ Excelsior brigade aud Gen. Patterson's New Jersey brigade. These new men, lighting with a courage and determination of which the annals of w ar can not furnish a superior, drove the enemy until (lark, and decided the fate of the battle of Mal vern Hills aud the army of the Potomac. The change of base was necessitated by the impossibility of holding our extended lines with the army which Mr. Stanton would grant to Gen. McClellan. Our front extended from Mechanicsville on the right to White Oak Swamp on the left, a distance of fifteen miles. Besides defending this against a greatly su perior force of the reliels, to say nothing of satisfying the ambition of the Secretary of War and Congress for an immediate advance, we were obliged to- guard some twenty miles of railway, from White House to Fair Oaks. Gen. ilrCteUan had not men enuut/h to hohl this position after the reinforcement of the rebels by Stonewall Jarksou and others, and he Ix'came convinced of this after the dash of Gen. Stuart's Cavalry. Our right was con stantly subject to the danger of being turned, and our army being surrounded. The rels-ls knew that this was our weak position, and when they could bring an overwhelming force to bear against it and were sun- of success, they made the attempt. _:.. _ .... . • .. defeat of the relx-ls, and the order with which our soldiers have gone through it. proves them to be of the very best kind, reliable and wor thy of the world's applause. Gen. McClellan owes everything to his soldiers and to some of his leading Generals, for the success w hich has attended a movement upon which he haz arded the safety of Ids whole army. The position which we now occupy is one which our enemies say we can defend against anything Jeff. Davis or any other monarch can bring to bear upon as. Our line, instead of being fifteen miles front with twenty miles of railway to defend, is scarcely five miles long. One of our flanks is the James ltiver, not a railroad to lx- torn up, nor a high w ay t hat may be olistructed, but a sure means of conveying supplies, and easily defended by gunixiais.— Our other line is readily held§ty the force we can bring. If we could only have occupied this same i position six weeks ago, instead of the difficult one we took, your correspondent would now be dating his letters at Richmond, instead of twenty odd miles below there, Though fur ther from Richmond than we w en- last Thurs day, in miles and furlongs, in effect we are nearer that stubborn capital, ami surer of its ! capture. I will not venture to name the exact date when we shall exchange the hardships of the camp for such luxuries as Richmond will afford, but the day cannot he far distant, if other co operative movements are properly conducted. The army is in excellent spirits ‘to-day, and disposed to let off a deal of Fourth (if J uly patriotism and powder. Tile 4th w as observed by the army of the Po tomac, by order from the Commanding Gen eral. The correspondent of the New York Would says: “Gen. McClellan reviewed tile troops in the afternoon as announced, and was received with the most enthusiastic cheering all along the lines. The soldiers have the most unlimited confidence in their general’s military capacity. They express no apprehensions for the future under his command. They do not consider their retreat a defeat, but believe it a part of Met lellan s plan. They do not believe their leader lias made a movement that was not jus tified by sound military policy. They think that tile capture of Richmond will come in good time, in accordance with Gon. McClci Ian's plans, and are anxious to lie led whenever he gives the word to do their part toward that ; result; so the troops, of course, cheered their young commander as he rode along the lines. As he passed along, he made a few remarks to them, thanking them for their gallant conduct, encouraging them for the future, and telling them them that their labors were not yet over.” The New York Ilrralil correspondent, writ ing duly 4th. says: During the whole of the seven day's contest our troops fought bravely, and drove back the enemy at many points. Gen. Woodbury’s En gineer Brigade remained behind till the last moment, destroying and blowing up the bridg es. But the rebels have Engineers as well as we. They have besides, what we have not. an intimate knowledge of the tophography of the country, and they know of many fords and passes across the stream which arc unknown to us. The consequence has lieen that their engineers very quickly rebuilt the bridges,and while part of their army crossed on these, oth er parts crossed by the fords. Thus they kept close on our rear. The Union Engineer Brigade obstructed all the roads through the great White Oak Swamp, and so effectual were their labors in doing so tluit Gen. Hciutzehnan publicly declared that they had saved the army. What he meant was that the obstructions which our brave engi neers placed in the roads through that swamp, so delayed the pursuit of the enemy that our army effected its movement In safety. But the hordes of the rebels toiled day and night at the removal of some of the obstructions, and sought out new paths by which others might la- avoided, so that by Tuesday night they were ready to cross the swamp with whatever force they pleased. Before that time, however, our army had reached the James river, anil were comparatively safe. Our position lien- is strong, our artillery ad mirably posted, our men somewhat recovered from their fatigues, and there is not a man here who is not willing to die for his country, soon er than yield or fly. We may is1 overpowered by the loree of numbers; but you may depend iilHin it McClellan's army will never surrender. In the meantime why are we not further rein forced ? The Washington correspondent of the Trar W/rr writes July 7th. as follows: The Western Generals are congregating here in nutnliers. Pope, Mitchell. Sherman. Wallace—four of the liest Generals in Hal leck's army—an- here. What does it mean ? Wallace, it is said, declares that the Govern ment should instantly concentrate troops around Kiehmond, bringing large numbers from the West for that purpose. He says if the rebels are permitted to beat us in rapid concentration of troops, they will surely tri umph. ' «»um nuium&i ip uui III IIM* rU'pilDIK'ail supporting tin- same idea. I understand that the President dislikes to try on the plan of sudden concentration of troops, fearing that the reta-ls will boat him at it. (Jen. McClellan is in favor of the plan, and must have been from the first, for he has been liegging for more troops ever since lie got into the Penin sula, and he. of course, knew the amount of forces here, and the need of them. The Washington Republican of July 7th says: The week’s lighting, ending with Tuesday the first day of July, has been a great advan tage to Ihe national cause. Anything was bet ter than that nightmare of torpidity which had brooded over the army of the Potomac for months. We have lost more men, tw ice over, by inglorious disease in the swamps of the Chiekahominy, than in all this seven days’ lighting. Our losses in these battles have been cruel. In the first moment of the na tional anguish,1St may term unfeeling to sug gest any considerations of compensating ad vantage, lint the truth is. ware cannot lie pros ecuted to a successful termination without lighting, and least of all, such a war as this is. The reliels an- not to lx* put down by block ade, by starvation, or by any form of ihe “an aconda" policy. It is to lie done bv fighting, and by killing off their leading spirits in bat tle. And while that is not to be accomplished without deplorable losses on our side, the sac rifices of life in idle ramps are really greater. The New York Evening Post calls Ibr a gen eral arming of the people of the five States. It says: Our wllole population must Ik- made ready for w ar. We have the rebellion to put down with the strong hand, and we have the pros pect of fon-ign intervention, which will lead, of course, to a war with one or two of the most powerful and warlike nations of the world. We call, therefore, upon the national admin istration and uikui all the State governments to bring out every able-Uidied man. put him into some military organization where he may Ik- drilled, and to.provide arms, equipments and stores sufficient for putting them ull in the field. lint we must not confine our arming to tin land. Me must make ready to wage such a naval war as has never been seen. Iron-clad vessels can be built in three months. Let us, then, have enough before this year is out to match the navies of England and France, while with our wooden navy and our privateers we can swi-i-p the commerce of our enemies from tin- ocean. Let us, then, go to work. M'e have boon playing at war, not waging it. M’e Imve been sluggish in our preparations and timid in our execution. Let us change all this. Let the incompetent and the suspected step aside. M'e want laild. energetic, patriotic men to step forward and take the lead in bringing this na tion to that condition of perfect armament which will leave us not a moment of appre hension. i net uugresaionai correspondent oi tlie same paper says: There is serious talk of a conscription act. Volunteering would do well enough if the de mand for au increase of forces w as not imme diate. It is suggested in some quarters that Congress should pass a hill authorizing the President to resort to a draft whenever, in the absence of Congress, he shall think it expedi ent. It is quite probable that within a month after the adjournment the Executive will And it necessary to resort to drafting, and if such should Is* tlie ease, it would is- exceedingly awkward to be obliged to call Congress to gether for the. authority. Major General Hai.lkck.—There is al ways something in a man of character w hich is specially worthy of remarking. All individ uals—speaking oi' men in the highest terms —are to he studied w ith the same closeness we would study a picture, or a specimen. In great men. tile one peculiar point to lie ob served is their perfect simplicity—their lack of pretension, or even of profession. What they are, that they arc; and they never think of such a tiling as talking almut it. It is not nec essary. They would feel themselves cramped and diminished by so doing, or sufficing oth ers to do it for them. It is just its easy and natural for a great man to do a good deed as it is for a small man to perform a trilling one; each is spontaneously done, even when ii appears to be more or less mechanical. A great many |>crsuus feel an active interest in tlie personal apperanee and traits of a man like General Halleck, now in successful com mand of our Western department. A writer in camp says Hint lie looks not tlie military man at all: hut appears in lib rich uniform, as it lie was getting around in borrowed cloatbs, In fact, lie resembles some “round, fat, oily,” Methodist parson,dressed in regimentals, with a wide, stiff-rimmed, black felt hat,sticking on the liack of his head.aud showing his forehead so prominent that his troops have nicknamed him “Old Brains." Ilis demeanor is very simple and business-like; no |M>mp, no unusual ceremony, and no laek of order. On horse back lie neither looks like a soldier, nor rides like one; but rattier carries the apjieurauce of a man ol peace. His face is large; his eyes, tlie eyes of genius—a kind of indistinct gray, not without expression, but of the deep-welling kind whielt only reveals the emotion without indicating its character.

CALUKItWOOD k ISKChbiT foil land, June 2d. dtf MISCELLANEOUS. STATE OF OTAIME. Executive Department. Augusta, July 4, 18C2. 7b the People of Maine : An additional numlier of troops is required by the exigency of the public service, and if raised immedi ately it is believed bv those* who have the best means of knowledge*, that the war will Ik* brought to a speedy and glorious issue. Of this number the President of the United .states desires and expects that Maine should furnish her proportion or quota. Our gallant and |»atriotic State has done her whole duty in the past, and she will not falter nor fail in the present nor in the future. That her material interests may be protected and advanced, that tranquility and peace mav be restored throughout the land, that the Constitution and the Union, which have U*cn to us all the source of un measured blessings, may be preserved; that Liberty, of which they were the inspiration and are the selected guardians, may be sav «*d. and that the light of one gn at example may shine brighter and brighter, to guide, to cheer and to bless the nations. To aid in all these. I invoke of the people of this State a prompt and hearty response to this new demand upon their patriotism; and may they all unite in the work that is before them, each laboring in his own sphere, do ing what he can by his example, influence and sympa thy— proferring his treasure, his time, his strength, his heart, and his highest hope to the cause or his couutry!

Accompanying this you will receive General Order No. 16, with PriK-'amations of His Excellency the Governor, and recruiting paper* and instructions to be put into the hands of the Orderly Sergeant or some other person of each of the companies organized un der your direction, with a request that they will en list all such persons therefrom, or others, as mav be possible. For this service they will receive a suitable compensation for each man * enlisted by them and mustered into the service of the United States. The necessities of the service admit of no delay, and It is most earnestly hoped that tin- several Major Gen eral* will see that the requirements of this order are promptly executed, and the Orderly Sergeants or oth er parties designated as recruiting’officers will omit no effort on their part to secure as main recruits as possible for the Volunteer Regiments. As members of the Militia will be called into actual service under the laws of the United State* and of this State, as Militia, for a period which in all proba bility will la* quite as long as that for which they would be held as Volunteers, the ad\autages to be de rived by the soldier in volunteering, iu the matter of premium, advance pay, bounty, ami other benefits, are so great and obvious that it’ is believed there will be no hesitation in diluting as Volunteers, rather than to serve a* Militia, in which capacity they will receive uothing but monthly w ages, rations aud’cloth iug.
