The Chronicle devotes itself to-day to the reg ulation'of our municipal affairs; cracks tbe plantation whip at the ?'Unconditional Union men" of tbe city, and with considerable assu rance for a new comer here, undertakes to dic tate right and left as to who shall be selected tor candidates at the coming election. The Union men of the city, who are quite as patriotic as this mentor, will certainly select xnen of undoubted loyalty for office, and will also, we presume, despite the dictation of the Chronicle, take into consideration the qualifica tions of candidates for important fiduciary trusts, not deeming it so impossible as the Chronicle seems to think to find candidates who txave fitness and the public confidence, as well as loyalty, to recommend them. The Intelligencer is still carping at General Hooker, for what good purpose we cannot see# aa a very short time must now test his abilities decisively, and it would seem to be the dictate ot patriotism to lender him generous confidence and support meantime. We have always held to this dec trine when his predecessors were in command, and can see no good reason why it is not as proper now as then. OUR MILITARY BUDGET ARRIVAL OF REBEL DE3KRTERS AND PRIS ONERS. John Harrison and Henry Franklin, deser ter? from the 6th Virginia regiment, and John J. Sullivan, 1st Ya. cavalry: John A.

The President to-day received a letter from Opu. Banks, substantially confirming the pre viously published newspaper accounts of the series of brilliant and important successes thtt have recently crowned the Union arm1? in Louisiana. NEWS FROM REBELbOM. From Richmond papers of the 27th we gather the following: Two general orders issued by S. Cooper, rebel Adjutant General, are of significance. One directs that the clothing - ' deceased sol diers shall be properly inven* ned and then turned over to the nearest qi irtermaster, in order that it may be reissued, 1 * value of the clothing to be paid to the perso M representa tive of deceased. The other order defines the rights of partisan rangers, and sets forth to what they are enti tled, which includes all arms and munitions of war, small arms, artillery, cavalry equipments and all else they may capture from the enemy. When these articles are turned over to the Government the captors are to be paid their lall value. The Dispatch says that the Confederate Gov ernment has 100,000 bushels ef corn in store at Albany, Georgia, in a damaged conditiou, and ?which, if not soon removed, will prove worth lews. The want of rolling stock lor transpor tation is the cause. Robert Emmet Dixon, Clerk of the Confeder ate House of Representatives, was shot dead on Priday by Robert E. Ford, late Journal Clerk cf the House, in an affray. The Dispatch is terribly perturbed over the belief that there is a system of collusion be tween the blockading fleet off Charleston har bor and those blockade runners who bring in "Yarkee goods or carry out cotton, and thinks this is established by the fact that the vessels captured by the Federals are only those freight ed with stores for the Confederate Govern ment. The Richmond papers are flooded with com plaints of Yankee raids into Pendleton county, .King Georges' county, Fauquier, Suffolk, &c. Tbe Enquirer rebukes those about it who it ??often hears sighing for gradations of rank; binting that the mob ought not to rule; theori zing About the necessity lor higher classes, and wishing for a strong government,'* The Enquirer also casts cold water upon the report with which all Richmond was crazy,that Senor M on cad a, the Spanish Consul at Charles ton, had broaght to Richmond 11 good news" concerning European recognition. Fifteen hundred dollars each tor substitute* are offered in Richmond. A COKRKcTionr.?To those who have for years past regularly read the Star, we need utter no disclaimer of the interpretation which this morning's Chronicle takes the liberty of giving to a clause in our editorial of yesterday, urging upon our fellow-citizens the importance to tbe country and themselves of attending the primary meetings to be helfl to-n'ght: Its pur pose is to create the impression that we appeal to property holders as a class in calling on all "wh# are to pay the city's expenses, to be present. Not being disposed to suspect our co temporary of a sinister motive, we can but at tribute its misinterpretation of the Star to its "want of Information as to who the tax payers ?re. W e have lived long enough to know that those who l'urnish the means of carrying on ?ur city's government are all of every station ? life among us who pursue regular and hon est callings for their livelihood, and more es pecially those who being domiciled here, are really "bone of oar bone and flesh of our Hesh," as it were. These are the classes who ahould rightfully exercise most influence in t&e city government, if it is to be governed for the public interest rather than for that of gangs c! speculators in city politics with scarcely a ahodow of identity with, or interest in, the af ?U-ts of "Washington.

EDITOR:?lu your local columns of IL3 yesterday, in the notice of the pmceedings of the city courts, publicity is given to certain rulings of the presiding judge. On leaving the court 1 immediately prepared the following, and handed the same to Judge Fisher during the recess of the court. He promised me an official reply. I a^ain called on the jud<*e this morning, and lit* assured we that lie would furnish a reply that I might expect to receive to-morrow. As many of our citizens are a" deeply interested in this matter a> myself, you will oblige by giving this letter to the public. Respectfully. WILLIAM P. WOOD. Wa>hin'gtox. April 23, 1333. Hon. G. P. F'fhtr, Juiltte qf Criminal Court ul' Washington?Sir: In obedience to a summons, I appeared before the Criminal Court of Washington this day, and gave my evidence before the court. A question by a juror in reference to my be'ief in j rewards and punishments, led (I believe) to an J interrogation from yourself as to my belief iu a j future personal atate as the condition to receive j rewards and punishments. On my replying I did ? not so believe, you decided mv evidence as not i admissable before your court. You are surely aware of the great responsibility j of disfranchising a law-abiding citizen for opinion's sake; or can it be possible that I have been misuu- ' derstood, or have 1 correctly understood the inter- j rogations of the Court* I understood the question put to ine by the Court 1 was' to ascertain if I believed (in substance) thut j after the death of the body I would either be ( awarded with heaven (a place of endless bliss) or he punished with hell, (a place of endless torment ) : If such was the interrogation, I answered as I believe; and will say im opinions on that subject ? are fully expressed in a letter written by Benjamin Franklin to the Rer Mr. WhitSeld. dated Phila- j delphia, June 6th. 1753.'' and can be found in the j Moral Instructor snd Guide to Happiness, or the Wisdom of Ages Condensed. page 247. I respectfully request that I may be informed if there is any law in practice in any court in our National Metropolis tnat prohibits the entertaining opinions and sentiments similar to those of the wisest, purest and best of men of all ages: or can it be possible that She entertaining of any theological opinion should debar me of any privilege enjoyed by any citizen, especially when I challenge an in vestigation of my good citizenship by any moral code, whereby my actions may be regarded as a test of worth. My c-wn honor, the good opinion of my many christian and other friends, together with my duty to my children, prompts me to request an official reply, informing me of the law or cause by which I am to be disfranchised from privileges enjoyed by every citizen, and guaranteed to me by the Consti tution of rey'covntry. As a judge you would certainly not do me an injustice or wrong without allowing me an oppor tunity of attempting to rectify the error or properly explain. Hence I pray an early reply, that 1 may endeavor to remove all restrictions depriving me 1 of any right enjoyed by the most favored of my fellow-citizens. j 1 have the honor to be vour obedient servant.

In compliancc with the proclamation of Jhe ! President ol the United Stat -s, Thursday, the ! 30th of April inst., will be observed by officer* i and men in this command as a day ol lasung and humiliation. Within the limits of the city of Washington and the District of Columbia, the orders regu lating the transaction of business and closing of shops, stores and bars on Sunday will be ; applicable to Thursday, 30th inst., and will be j accordingly observed and enforced. The President's proclamation devoutly recog nizes the existence and presence of Almighty God. it is impossible that such a Being should not ; be interested in the affairs of men. No further appeal ought to be necessary to those who pub- I iicly proiess a Christian faith. But to others. ; who are inclined to ask "what good can be gained by fasting," the Commanding General, i while desiring their respectful co-operation in j the observance of the day, suggests to them the j following answers: 1. They will thereby manifest a soldierly re spect for a recommendation which comes to them from the Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and the company or regiment most imbued with that quality of respect, affords signal evidence that it possesses the highest lighting quality. 2. Asoldier who is moved to the performance of his duty in battle or elsewhere by the taspi ration of God's presence in. his mind and pur poses, will be incited by an influence of im mense power. Not the miraculous interposition of Diviae agency, but the infusion of new determination and earnestness into our own hearts, will be the consequence in the rudest minds of an honest and manly observance of the Fast rec ommended bv the President. A whole nation stimulated and exalted by such influences would be irresistible. By command of Brig. Gen. Mariindale. John P. Sherburne, Assistant Adjutant General. THE APPROACHING MUNICIPAL ELECTION. We question whether a more truculent arti cle than that of the Chronicle this morning, with reference to our approaching city elej tion, ever appeared in print. It is evidently the design of that journal to cram its candi date or candidates down the throats of our fel- | low-citizens, unquestioned as to their real j identity with the interests of Washington, or j their fitness for the trusts with which it seeks ; to clothe them. To that end, it assumes bold- i ly that all who prefer others, prefer them from disloyal motives; a charge too preposterous to j require refutation at our hand. The Chronicle labors in vain in insinuating ; disloyalty Against the great mass of the resident ; citizens of the Federal Metropolis, who have in a thousand ways testified the earnestness of their support of the Government in its efforts to crash the rebellion. Were its aim to reduce the number of the Government's supporters to a mere handful of men bitten with the idea of the propriety of negro equality in this community, it could not have started out upon a basis more likely to accomplish that end, as far as its influence may go. We are for enlarging the number of actively loyal men here, until the list shall embrace all our fellew-citizens. In that way only can such support be secured for the Government's war measures as is necessary to insure them success; and we leave the public to .tudge whieh policy in this particular is likely to prove best for the public interest As it is evident that a bitter war. waged with all the usual appliance??of unscrupulous and irresponsible small politicians, is being made upon the present Collector, Mr. Dixon, we may not inappropriately remind the voters of Wash ington that no other city officer ever discharged his duties better or more to the satisfaction of those having busines with his office; while no other person has ever stood higher as a man, in the estimation of his fellow citizens; nor may we fail to add that his devotion to the cause of the restoration of fee Union by the unflinching use ol arms has, from the beginning of the war, afforded an example which has done much in deed to bring the sentiment of this community up to its present so satisfactory condition with reference to the necessity of giving the Gov ernment's war policy the heartiest support. Thk New Attack upon Charlkston.?The Port Royal Sew South, of April 19, gives much prominence, editorially, to the following para graph: "The reinforcements now ordered, and an their way from the North, will soon elevate this department to the first rank in public interest and military importance. We are not it liberty to give further indications, but this much is certain, that the gray-backs along the Southern coast are about to have some lively and interesting times." The startling rumor from Murlreesboro', Lhat the rebel General Bragg had been shot dead by General John C. Breckinridge, in a rencontre at Tullahoma, comes from rebel sources. It was known that a hostile feeling had existed between them for some time. Diffi culties had been existing for a long while, and this termination of the quarrel, should the report prove true, need ndt create any surprise. Bragg had also denonnced Breckinridge, in a.u official report, as incapacitated lor any com mand. Appointed.?Col. J. F.
