MATTERS ABOUT TOWN.
Twenty-one Yeakh Old.—A man's twen ty-first birthday comes but once in his life. It olden times the fledgling would patiently awail the arrival of that day, ere it would try the strength of its pinions. Even now. a moiety of the solx-r, staid few abide its coming, but as a general thing Young America will risk its feathers at eighteen, using up the quills at twenty. Ilere, however, is the exception. Last evening it was our good fortune to be one of a chosen few to celebrate the freedom day of a gentleman, well known to the commercial world, and who, surrounded by a chosen baud of “thirty year ciders" seemed but the boy of sixteen among them. Around him were gath ered the sage and the wise, men from the cold, cold world, and men also, who had never been out of Portland. The youth, now a man, in the sincerity of his heart, shed tears of anguish as he reflected upon the past twenty-one years of his life, and wondered how he had worried through them. Life taken in the retrospect shows hut a sad picture of short comings; and thus it was the lad iu reviewing, found cause for his tears. Suddenly, in the midst of a glowing recital of his past life, the “Press” stepped in, and while the dew-drops of emotion stood upon the brows of his auditors, the youth exclaim ed “ hand that man a chair.” The chair being taken, we were at liberty to observe the effect of his speech upon his hearers. One gentle man with his head in a recumbent position en deavored to supply music for the occasion, though strangely out of place as regarded time, but of singular service in keeping the rest awake. Others, witii listless looks regard ed the speaker witii that “ Uc'U-get-througli by-and-bye ” sort of expression, such as dea cons are wont to wear near the close of a long evening service. Still the s|ieaker continued, until, wound up to the highest tension of ora tory, bad but just entered upon these lines of a well known poet :— Seas roll to waft me, sans to light me rise— My footstool earth—mv canopy the deuce,” exclaimed he, upon viewing the apa thetic crowd. “Boys, let’s have supper.”— Instantly, as If by magic, a new life infused it self amongst the “sage and the wise,” and soon amidst the clattering of knives and forks, there came a “feast of reason and flow of soul.” It was one of those occasions in life, which, like the refreshing oasis of the desert, cheers the weary traveler, giving to future years a joy at its simple remembrance. Bbltal.—Our blood boiled, yesterday, with indignation, as we passed along the street, to see a burly driver of a large omnibus, creep slily over the top of his carriage, to inflict se vere blows with his long whip over the naked heads and ears of two or three little wee boys —not over six years old—who were hanging oil to the rear steps of the carriage. The lit tie fellows were trying to steal a ride, it is true, but a kind word would have driven them off as effectually as blows. Instead of this, the heavy whip came down upon their tender flesh, and they started off, stinging with needless pain. A merciful man is merciful to his Is-ast —much more so to a little defenceless child. Personal.— Yesterday afternoon, Hon. James Mann, recently appointed Paymaster in the army, with the rank of Major, took the three o’clock train for Washington, to report for duty. Before leaving it was our privilege to set down with him and about a dozen friends, at the Preble House, to a social dinner, and to *|>end in social friendship a half hour with Mr. Maun before his departure. The occasion was a pleasant one, and called forth sentiments and remarks indicative of the high estimation in which the new Paymaster is held by his home friends. Mr. Mann's post office address for the present will be at Washington. We wish him all sorts of prosperity, and feel to con gratulate the army that they have at least one Manly Paymaster. Mustering In.—About one hundred and sixty men were mustered into the U. S. service at Camp King, during yesterday, under the su pervision of Dr. Tewksbury. The doctor pro nounces them to be as tine a body of young men, as it is well possible to get together, both as regards their physical and moral abilities.— It is emphatically a young men’s regiment, and will, without doubt, win for itself an envi able renown. A dozen or more recruits "have been rejected, some for physical disabilities, and others ou account of bad character. By Wednesday next, it is estimated that upwards of three hundred sound and able-bodied men will have been received into the service. People of Portland! You have not yet fur nished one-half of the quota required of you. O, boasted patriotism! O, vaunted devotion! As it should nr..—The enterprising cashier of the International Bank of this city, with due regard to the accommodation of his cus tomers, as well as an eye to future prosperity, exchanged a few days since some five hun dred dollars In gold for the same amount of silver change, involving a sacrifice of at least seventy-live dollars to enable him to pay out something more convenient than postage stamps in his daily business. Let others go and do likewise or not complain, if a discrimi nating public bestow their patronage where it is best appreciated. Robinson of the Dirigo House, Milk street, having slaughtered a turtle, weighing three hundred and seventy-five pounds, did, in the bouuty and goodness of his heart invite the press to participate in the demolition there of. Finding so desirable a case to dissect, we of course hap|>ened in, and in justice to friend Robinson would say that a more palatable dish never graced the board of an alderman. The excursion of the Spiritualists, to the Islands, comes off to-day, should the weather be pleasant. All wrho desire a good time at slight expense, should bear it in mind.

Marshal's Sale.—We learn that the pro ceeds of the sale of smuggled cigars, made by IT. S. Marshal Clerk, yesterday, amounted to the snug little sum of about $2,100.

Corcoran to be Released. General Exchange of Prisoners. Rebel Forces at Tallnhuna. Extracts from Richmond Papers. Stonewall Jackson's Intentions. Skirmishing at Orange. Capture of New York Cavalry. Cotton Burning. Interesting from the South. Washington, July 25. The Richmond Enquirer of the 23d, says: “Tlie basis of the exchange of prisoners lias been the cartel of 1812. This cartel marks an important era in the war. It is the acknowl edgement of our quasi nationality. We are by it made belligerents, and the government of tile T inted .States treats with the government of tlie Confederate States through commis sioners. Tlie publication of tlie heavy list of rebel losses in the late battles is continued in the Enquirer. The 7th Va. regimenj, which was in no engagement but that of the 30th, carried into action 225 men and lost 111. Counterfeit notes are largely circulated in Georgia. The Enquirer says high prices are still rag ing, and hucksters are making a mint of shin plasters. The Enquirer claims that one more confed erate victory will end the war. and that com missioners for a truce and armistice will meet those necessary preludes to a peace. Rowdyism and disorder appear to have tlie upper hand in Richmond. The Enquirer complains of bogus military guards who shoot down men wantonly, and do a great deal of mischief in the way of robbery and bruising. It also speaks of straggling des jieradoes, runaways, from camp, whose occu pation is stealing, bruising, rowdyism. The Enquirer has the following: Chatanooga, July 4.—The enemy is concen trating a large force at Tullahumt,40 miles the other side of Stevenson. Buell's army is in a tight place. Tlie Enquirer lias a list of the hospitals in Richmond, including 15 army hospitals, tl pri vate hospitals, and some 30 hospitals just open ed. Hospital tents, it is stated, are being erected in Howard's Grove and Mavos and lli.liitiru n ml stw. . Manchester have been opened for hospitals. The inflated condition of the rebel paper currency caused stocks to go up in proportion. Gen. Johnston’s official report of the Seven Pines battle is printed under date of June 24. He charges upon Gen. Huger the fact that the confederate plan to destroy Keyes’ entire corps was not realized, in consequence of his (Huger’s) delay in getting into position and being ready for action. “We took," he says, 10 pieces artillery, 11000 muskets, 1 garrison flag and 4 regimental flags, besides a large quantity of tents and camp equipage.” Gen. Lougstreet reports the loss in his com mand at about 4000, and Gen. Gustavus Smith reports his at 1283, making a total loss of 4283. Gen. Johnson states that the federal loss ex ceeds that of tile rebels by 10,000 men. The Enquirer says Gen. Stuart’s cavalry had overtaken a portion of the Yankee force en gaged in burning the bridge at Heaver Darn, and captured 1 Lieut, and ti pri\ ate*. The prisoners admit that they were engaged in the recent raid. From the Army of Virginia. Little Washington, I Rappahannock County, July 23. ( The re]«irt recently telegraphed from War renton that Jackson ■ as at or near Gordons ville, is continued from other sources, which state that he is at Louisa Court House with 24.000 men, and Ewell, with a corps of Jack son's command, is at Gordonsviile, making a total of 30,000 men. His present intention is said to be to assume the offensive, auil break our lines, anil if successful, to demonstrate up on Washington, for the purpose of drawing off our forces from Richmond. As many misstatements have been publish ed in regard to the expedition commanded by Gen. Hatch, it may not bo inappropriate to make the following statement, as given by a returned officer: After marching to Culpepper Gen. Hatch pushed his whole force to the Rapidan, where, in consequence of the des st ruction of the bridges, (n<l the high state of the water, he was compelled to leave his artil lery and infantry. With his cavalry he pushed on to Orange Court House, where he learned the enemy were in large force at Gordonsviile. He sent a company of the Va. cavalry towards Gordonsviile, who approached within 8 miles of the latter place, and confirmed the report of the enemy’s presence and strength. On Fri day, the 18th, two brigades, supposed to be commanded by Gen. Ewell, made their appear ance at Orange, and on Saturday, after severe skirmishing. Gen. Hatch fell back at Culpep per. On Sunday 28 men of Co. A., X. Y. cav alry, were captured by the enemy, owing, it is said, to the incredulity of the commanding officer, who did not believe a statement that the enemy were advancing in force upon his outpost station. Two or three men, whose horses were saddled, made their escape. Af ter returning to Culpepper, Gen. Hatch made another incursion to Madison, and thence northward toSperryville,ascertaining that the enemy were not in force in that direcrion. That Jackson is in great force at Ixiuisa and Gordonsviile, is beyond doubt, and that he in tends to attack at a very early day, is fully be lieved. Gen. Hope's forces here have no ob jection, but rather desire that he will make the attempt. From Washington. Washington, July 25. The Commissioner of Internal Revenue, with the approval of the Secretary of Treas ury, in order that the Act of Congress of the I7th July inst may be carried into effect more speedily, to-day submitted a proposition for the consideration of the Postmaster General who has considered and adopted them. Aldermen Faley and Mitchell, and Council men Pinckney, Jones, Hogan, and Reach, of Xew York, to-day had an exceedingly agreea ble interview with the President and Secre tary of War, relative to the recruiting of vol-* unteens and the payment of bounty to them. The Committee were assured that arrange ments would at once be made to have a suita ble person at the City of Xew York to pay the bounty at the time of the recruits passing me meuicai examination. Among other in teresting matters, Secretary Stanton stated i that a general exchange of prisoners had been decided upon and that Col. Corcoran would be in New York in ten days. This visit of the I Committee will doubtless be productive of much good to the volunteers from New York. From accounts recently received Irom the head quarters of the Army of the Potomac, the official report of the buttles before Rich mond state that the killed, wounded, missing and prisoners, will approximate to 16,000. A general Court martial is ordered to con vene at Fort Niagara, N. Y., on the 3d of August, or as soon thereafter as practicable, for the trial of such prisoners as may be brought before it. From the Army of the Potomac. llEASqVABTtXS AkMY OF l’oTOAIAC 1 „ . , July 24. f Reliel officers who met the last tlag of truce stated that Capt. Riddle, of (ion.

The new tax stamps are under way; they will probably be used as currency instead of postage stamps. Prom Portress Monroe. Fortress Monroe, July 24. The steamship Daniel Webster, from N. Y. reached here last evening, on her way to Har rison's Landing with fresh vegetables Ibr the army, an article the have been suffering for for a long time.

The steamers S. S. Spaulding and Knicker liocker arrived here last evening, with (KJO Union prisoners from Richmond. The Knick erbocker goes to Philadelphia anil the S. it Spaulding to New York. They will both leave here for their respective destinations. A large Union force of artillery is reinforc ing those already at Yorktown. General Order No. 13. Headquarters Army ok Virginia, 1 Washington, July 25. f Hereafter no guards will lie placed over pri vate houses or private property of any descrip tion whatever. Commanding officers are re sponsible for the conduct of the troops under their command, and the articles of war and the regulations of the army provide ample means for restraining them to the full extent required for discipline and efficiency. Soldiers were called into the field to do battle against the enemy, and it is not expected that their force and energy shall be wasted in protecting the private property of those most hostile to the government. No soldier serving in this army shall be hereafter employed in such ser vice. (Signed) Geo. Russell. Chief of Staff. By command of Maj. Gen. Po|»e. Enthusiastic War Meeting. Buffalo. July 25.
