Our army baa enjoyed a peaceful 8unday to-day. Surprises bare been scarce. Tbe rebels bavo kept their distance all along tbe line. THE CONDITION OF THE UNION ARMY. In every column of the grand army of tbe Potomac tho troops are in excellent bcaltb. This is a fact quite contrary to tho theory of tho rebels, and is exactly tho contrary f tho fact prevailing in tho rebel army, where between flvo and six thousand men are in tho hospitals, suffering from disease consequent upon a change of climate. ^ THE REPORTED RECOGNITION OF THE REBEL FLAG BY SPAIN. Mr. Tassara, the Spanish Minister, has called to assure the Secretary of State that the report from Charleston that tho Captain General of Cuba has issued a proclamation recognizing the rebel flag is untrue. What has happenod is, that vessels from any port in tho Unitod States In possession of the rebels, coming into a port with irregular papers, are admitted cx neceuxtalf, wiLhout notice of their Irregularity, just as they havo boen admitted in ail other ports since tbe rebels obtuinod possession of tho ustora houses in tho insurgent States. It is needless to aay that no such vessels can ho abroad without escaping the blockading force. Thero is no recognition of a rebel flag in Spaniah ports or in any other ports. In couuection with the above wo give tho proclamation of tho Captain General of Cuba, as published in the Charleston Mercury, and tho substance of tho Spanish Queen's proclamation with regard to neutrality. These documents have been published beforo, but in connection with the assertion of tho Spanish Minister will again ropay a perusal. tor proclamation op til* governor general of cuba official recognition of til* rebel klao. Richmond, Sept. 12. > Via New orikann,Scpt 13,1H?1. j The Charleston Mercury correspondent gives a proclamation of tho Captain General of Cuba. He says:?In virtue of tho proclamation by her Majesty the Queen. I occupied in legitimate commerce, proceeding from ]mrts in the Confederate States, Bhnll be entered and clearod under the Confederate Dag, and shall be duly protected by tho authority of tlie island. Foreign Consuls will be notified that no interference on their part will be tolerated. ? Ttnc spavistt proct amatioi*. Tlie Spanish pn>clamation relative to the American war ays the Queen is determined to observe the strlctistneutrality between the federal States of the Union and tha Confederate States of the South. With this view, it is prohibited to arm, build or lit out privateers, no matter under what Dog, in any Spanish port. Shipowners ana captains of Spain are prohibited from accepting letters of marque, and from contributing In any way to the armament and titling out of prlvatocrs. Privateers and prizes are prohibited remaining over wenty-four hours in any 8|wnish port, save in case of urgent necessity, in which ease tho harbor authorities are to compel tlicm to proceed to sea as early as possible, and not allow them to ship but what Is necessary, and never under any pretext arms and ammunition. No articlos belonging to prizes may lie sold. The carriage of goods to nono of tho blockaded ports Is guaranteed, except war mati rial and letters, which are prohibited. Offenders are responsible for their owu acts, and have no claim for protection. Spaniards are prohibited from taking sorvice on either Side; and must abstain from al! acts which may bo regarded as op|Hipod to tlie neutrality. Offenders are to bo liable to the measures adopted by the belligerents, and punished according to tho laws of Spain. The decree is dated June 17, countersigned by Senor Colloid and tho Minister of Foreign AHairs. THE PATllENTd AT THE t'KITKD STATES TREASURER'S OFFICE. Tho payments over tho counter at tlie United States Treasurer's office aro immense. During tho last three days of lost week tho average was nearly one million; on Fri lay, 13th Inst., they werO upwards of eleven hundred thousand dollars, while tlie aggregate jiaymonts at Ahesama offish during tho whole month of August, 18C0, were only about eight hundred thousand. Treasurer tljtnncr employe loss force now than his prodeccssor had fcutyear. Nearly ail the payments to tho army are made in coin. Item and notes on Eastern cities arc eagerly sought after, bed thegr are sent off West at*l North almost as soon as prepared. A few are paid to tbe soldiers, who wish them to ramlt, but thoy cannot be prepared rapidly enough to pny off with altogether. Notes which are redeemable at St. I.ouis are not desired by anyone In this section of tho country, but probably may Und circulation west ef that point. Several hundred subscription agents wore appointed last week, in nearly every loyal Stale, Including Virginia and Kentucky. A considerable number linve already accepted and sent In their bonds; the others will probubly be all at work this week. Tbe subscriptions of the people havs exceeded 19,000,000, and tlici. patriotic co-opcr* :e ne taiion will doubtless enable the bonks to take the second instalment of $fc) ,000,000, and supply all the money needed for a vigorous, but economical prosecution of the war. Urn administration feels the importance of justifying by Vigor, ecooomy'and integrity, the confidence manifested by the masses. Wasteful expenditures and corrupt contracts' by w hich alone the security of the working men who invest their earnings in the loan can bo impaired, will be rigorously repressed. CAPTURE AND ESCAPE OF A REBEL?A NEWSPAPER CORRESPONDENT FATALLT WOUNDED. Colonol Young, of the Volunteer cavalry, yesterday arrested a rebel In Maryland, and left him In tho custody of F W. Walkor, tho correspondent of a New York paper, for safe keeping. After the party of horsemen left, tho prisoner stabbed Walker fatally In the abdomen and escaped Tho wounded man has had good surgical attendant, but Is reported dead to night. Walker was formerly an Episcopal clergyman in Chicago, but more rcoently a newspaper correspondent, resident lu Brooklyn, whore ho leaves a wife and several children. It is thought rather singular that a military ofllcor, after assuming tho responsibility of making the arrest, should have entrusted his prisoner in the custody of a single civilian, instead of securing him by military guard. NARROW ESCAPE OF VISITERS TO THE CAMP. Captain Ing&lls, of the Quartermaster's Department, and Second Comptroller Cutts, came near being Uilled| wounded or taken prisoners to-day, by approaching too near tho rebel lines. They had crossed Ball's Cross Roads in an open carriage, our pickets informing them that everything was safo for half a mile beyond, wlion in fact wo had no sentinels on the road beyond the crossing. The parlies hail approached within a fow yards of the Loudoun and Hampshire Railroad, when they wore flrod upon by rebel picket-, concealed in bushes. Tho excursionists immediately retreated, and succoeded safely in reaching our lines. Not withstanding tho dangers attending travelling outside Of our pickets, It is unaccountable that civilians will persist in It, contrary to the advice of military authorities. Colonel Kerrigan, j>f tho New York Twenty-fifth regiment, arrested to-day at Ball's Cross Roads a gentleman who was engaged in legitimate business, and in possession of a pass from General McCtell&u. Ho was sent under escort?a distance of throo mllos?to tho headijuarters of General McDowell, who promptly ordered his release. FiRINO BETWEEN THE VICKRTt". About one o'clock this afternoon two of tho rebel pi 'kets stationed at Munson's Hill ventured beyond their usual picket lino, when they were flrod on hy our sharpshooters. As thoy wore both soen to fall, it is supposed they wero kltlod. NEGROES PERFORMING PICKET DUTY. Major I/'mon, of tlio Thirty-second New York regiment, commanding tho picket post at Iiailey's Cross Roads, roports, to-day, that negroes were sucn performing picket duty for the rebels. OCTKAGES OF TIIE REBELS, last Friday afternoon, at the time of tlio burning of the dwellings of Unionists at Ball's Crass Bonds by the rebols) Saniuol Biroli, wife, daughter ainl three sous, residing two miles to the right of the forks of the road, were captured by tho rebels. It 13 suppose 1 their property was destroyod, though nothing In regard to this is positively known. Tlio above aro all tho facts which could be gleaned from a journey from the Chain Bridge to Alexandria. CAPTfRF. OF THREE SPIES. A detachment of Colonel Young's cavalry, under Capt.

FnRTRr.?M Movroe, Sept. 14,1 via Baltimurk, Sept,. 16.1PC1. J There wis a prospect of an engagement lust night at Newport News. About four o'clock p.

Sho flred twonty-fivo shells, one of which cxplo led near tho Savannah, and tho others fell considerably short. The guns of tho Cumberland and Savannah could not reach tho Yorktotvn, but a couple of shells from Sawyer s gun on shore caused her to retire. One of the shells exploded three-fourths of a mile beyond the steamer. A Frenchman who managed to escape from tho York" town day before yesterday, states that she has been watching for somo time an opportunity to run the blockade, and that tho loyalty of many of the crew was suspected. About four o'clock P. M-, also, a p y which was sent out to out fuel oncountcred two hundred rebel cnvalry and an equal number of infantry, abput three miles from Newport News. Tho teamsters left their wagons and pallopod in to give the alarm, but no furthor demonstration was made, and the wagons wero afterwards brought into camp. Tho rebel steamer Curtis Peck made hor appearance this morning above Newport News. A steamer also from Norfolk made a roconu.oissanco. Tho distinguished political prisoners from Baltimore, Including Mayor Brown, Ross Winans, Hon. Henry May and others, arrivod at Old Point this morning. They wll be closely oonflnod within tho fortress. The steamer Yorktown has been cut down forward and aft by the removal of hor upper cabins, so as to carry two large pivot guns. She has in addition six hoavy guns on each sido. Thorc aro no indications of her baviDg been Iron plated. FORMATION OF A UNK)N CAMP IN TENNESSEE. I>orisvn,Li, Sept. 14,1801. Tho Chattanooga (Tonti.) Gaulle of the 11th lint, says that a Caton camp was forming about ton mile* north of CtAttanooga. A huge- Union flag had been rai8od,with a sword suspended over it. About two hundrod m<!n aro encamped, and drill regularly. FEARS ENTERTAINED FOR THE SOUTHERN CROPS. lotrsrvTUJi, Sept. 14,1861. 8orious fears are entertained for the crops of the South. The rains of August are reported the heaviest and most general that ever wero known, an l were very disastrous. The Savannah Republican claims fair rice crops, but admit" that continuous rains have d imaged them somewhat. The Baton Rouge Advocate says that tho cotton crops of that vicinity arc literally covered with the army worm, ami that tho fate of tho crop will bo scaled in a few days, for tho raius and boavy atmosphere aro favorablo to the workers MOVEMENTS OF THE PRIVATEER SUMTER. Kiscwrowx, 8r. Visckxt, August 26,1861. Yesterday a British brig, name not recollected, bound to Halifax, N. 8., was overhauled by tho privateer Sumter. Tho latter sent sixtoon men on board the brig, armed to tho teeth, and after having examined hor papers, Ac., allowed her to proceed. An American steam sloop-of-war and twe gunboats arc cruising between this island, Jamaica and Barbados, doubtless in quest of tho ubovo privateer NAVAL AFFAIRS IN BOSTON. B wo.v, Sept. 15,1SG1.

CASTLE HNCKNEY, CHARLESTON HARBOR. Ca?tlc l'lnckney is to become to the South what Fort Lafayetto is to the United States government?tho receptacle for State prisoners. Tho 156 men (part of the num b<r taken at Bull run) having born sent from Richmond, to be detained as prisoners of war in this fort once more brings it into public notice, although not in the same attitude as in tho engagement and bombardment of Fort Sumter. We therefore given short description of the abiding place of our imprisoned soldiers. DESTKIPTION OK TI1K FOBT. Castle Pim kney is n Ktnn.il work situated on the south crn extremity of f-huto's Folly Island, between the nog and Folly channels. Though not in Itself a very considerable military work, yet from its position?commanding as it does, the whole lino of the eastern wharves?It beroinos of the utinovt imimrtance to bo held by tl.e State of South Carolina. It is, In fact, tho Immediate outwork of the city of tharlcston, useful at least as a means of preventing tho lunding of un enemy, or as a prison for those |?or fellows who may bo taken by the rebels. In its plan it presents to the south a semi circular face, tho ear tern and western faces being formed by the lino cf ramparts following the directicn of the tangent to tho circular arc at its extremity, and for tho distance of twonty yards; the northern sldo is plain; at both tho nort'ienstern and northwestern angles are semi-circular bastions, tho outer extremities of the arcs being tangent I respectively to tho eastern and western *i.ten e.r the <wt I Tltero arc two rows of guns?lite lower lu lng In casemates (bomb proof), the embrasures for which are about seven feet above low water mark, ami the upper being ev lari.etlt The height of the rampart Is twenty ami the width thirty-two feet. The width of the outer wall nn<l of th parapet Is six feet; Ihc depth of the cascmat^ is twenty feet, the height ten; tlm diameter,east and west, of tho castle 13 one hundred and seventy feet. The entrance is on the northern side, on cither sldo of which arc the otlkers' and privates' (piarters, raws room, &c. Tito ascent to the barbetto Is made on the northeastern and northwestern corners of the terra-pa radrlpUin. In the centre of tho latter is tho furnace (or heating shot, in ease of an engagement. Around tho foot of tho scarp wall is n breakwater, about twelve feet in width, horizontally, which has its western side extended in a tangent direction to tho,.south to form tho landing. The landing is protected by the (ire of scycrul guns, sweeping Its length. Tim nrruament of this castle consists of about twenty Ave piece: ?twenty four and thirty-two-poundcrs, a few seacoast mortars and six columbiads. The work has of lute been put into as thorough repair as possible. MORE YANKEE PRISONERS?ESCAPES AND RECAPTURES. [From the Richmond Examiner, Popt. 9.) Sixtcon mercenaries reached this city on Saturday evening from Western Virginia, and were consigned to proper quartern. They woio captured at the battle of tiroes lanes, und regarded with evidently uneasy apprehensions tho unexpected realization of their "on to Richmond" battle cry. Eleven of I.iucotn's captured mercenaries, with that nptitudc for flight which has now become a Yankee p.cuhority, munag< d sometime during Ft May night. it is supposed, to osca|K) from tho tobacco warehouse in which they were confined,and are now doubtless vigorously shinning it In the direction of the enemy's lines. That they will be frustrated in tlieir object we hope, nr d bavo i very reason to b.dievo, from tho energetic measures which, immediately on tho discovery of their (light, wcro adopted to intercept and roapturo them. Tho escape was probably tho result of a 1 ng considered and well matured plot, an Intercepted letter of (me of the fugitives to Itis wife, dated August 90, having been found to contain a despatch assuring her, with the utmost confidence, tlint ito would certainly be ut huno in two weeks. The names of tho prisoners aro as follows:?Captain J. R. Ilurd, of the Second Kentucky (?) regiment, taken prisoner by General Wise's column several, weeks ago; Lieutenant W. H. Ray nor, of Rhode Island; Linutoiiunt C. J. Murphy, of New York; and privates T. (i. Iuutigan, G. W. Ward (his second escape), A. Bryant, F. Brown, J. A. French, W. Smith, Charles Lincoln and Thotnpklns, the last named of whom wag subsequently recaptured. The uiodim o/ierandi of tho esca)>c has not yet been discovered, but precautionary measures have been taken which will probably prevent the practical secession of any moro Hull runners from lite hospitalities of Captain Glhbes. Since writing tho above French and another prisoner whose ittgno wo could not ascertain, were captured some miles from tho city, and brought back to their former quarters. Three Yankee prisoners, who escaped altoiit two weeks ago, wore recaptured and brought hack to their old quarters on Friday. They didn't appear to have bom much bouctitUxl by thoir "little excursion into Virginia. TO BK SKJIT SOfTH. The Richmond Emminrr of tho 9th says:?Oenorn! Wlndnr, who has charge of the prisoners of war now in confinement in thin city, lias wriit?n to Hrigadier General Twiggs, at New Orleans, stating That the captured abolition emissaries alluded to aro to be sent to the forts in tho viclulty of New Orleans, and inquiring how many they can accommodate. Tim New Orleans Picayune, publishing the despatch from Genera! Winder to General Twiggs, remarks:? Hefore tho oommandors of tho several forts send in their reports, in accordance to the above despatch, tho General cannot givo to General John H. Winder a positive an swor; but It Is supposed from rlx to seven hundred prisoners could be easily accommodated In all our forts. We wid'h'-re remark that tho War Department, unwilling to resort to measures of retaliation aguinst our Northern foes, wish the prisoners of war to receive tho best care, ar.d show this anxiety on Uio subject by Inquiring how many of them could bo accommodated here without crowding. This lesson of humanity will be lost, as so many others of the kind the .South has already given, to the Northern people. AFFAIRS IN BALTIMORE. Baltimore, Sept. 15, 1801. Baltimore is unusually quiet. W. W. Glenn, anothor editor of tho Exchange, was arrested yesterday. It Is announced that the paper will bo discontinued after to-morrow. The most ridiculous rumors lutve been in circulation today of affairs at Frederick and Washington, but despatches state that unusual quiet prevails in both cities. THE NATIONAL LOAN IN PHILADELPHIA. rini.Ai>Ki.rtitA, Kept. 16,1861. Tho national loan subscription, on Saturday, amounted to $100,000 at Jay, Gx>ke & Co's ANOTHER PRISONER RENT TO FORT LAFAYETTE.

G. Stevens, United States Deputy Mn shalfor the Northern district of New York, and nrrived in the city yesterday. Be was sent down last evening to Fort Lafayette. ? 'T*?i * * 4 ' UK H SEPTEMBER 16, 1861. THE CONFISCATION OF SLAVE PROPERTY. The Act of Congr?n?Tht Proclamations by the President and CAencral Fremont? Important Letter from President Lincoln. The employment of slaves by the Southern rebels, upon formications and other mllitury works, to the Injury of the national cause, was brought to tho attention of Congress during the recent extra session, and tho result was tho passing of an act?one of the most important of the session?confiscating nil slaves so employed. As tlio proclamation of General Fremont, declaring martial law in forco lu Missouri, and freeing tho slaves of rebels found with armi Id thoir hands, caused a misunderstanding bo. twecu the General and President Linooln, and gave use to ro|x>rts that the Qencral was superseded, wo reprint the fourth clause of the act, which alone relates to tho confiscation of slave property. It is as follows:? Foe. 4. And ho it furttior enacted, That whenever hereafter, during the present insurrection against tho government of ttio Unite I States, any |ier?on claimed to bo held to labor or service under the law of any Ktato shall ho required or permitted by tbo person to whom such labor or service is claimed to be duo, or by tho lawful agent of such person, to take up arms against tho United Stales; or shall he required or permitted by tho person to whan such labor or service is claimed to ba duo, or his lawful agent, to work or to he emj&oyai in or upon au.v fort, no"V yard, dock, armory, (hip, iutrenchmrnt, or in any military or nasal novice whatsoever, acmimt tlir government and lawful authority of the United Statu, Una, and in entry suili care, (Ac person to whom each later or urvice ii clainud to ty due (hall fir frit his claim to mcK lahor, any law of the state or of the United S'atn to the eontrary natwi k'taodinp.

Tliis act waa reluctantly approved and signed by President Lincoln on the nth of August. Another act waa passed, confiscating tho property of rebels, but not including slaves. Upon this latter act the President, on the 16th of August, issued the foil .wing proclamation:?. W.vsm.NtJToy, August 16,1801. Br TD! PltESIDKNT OF TU* UjtlTMl STATUS OS AUKtUca: A 1 H H'T.AM.HIO.V.

Ttu re is no knowing how many Mrs. norlands there are in tbo city, and it would be well, perhaps, for the relief officers in tho various wards to examine their books carefully and compare notes so as to avoid tho duplicating of applicants' names, and protect the fund from similar frauds. The officers who have this relief fund in trust cannot he too rigid in their examination of iho claims of applicants.
