Decidedly Tool for tub Srason.?'The
Chronicle of this morning under the heading
?? A Day of excitement," says.?Notwishstand
iog the publication of all the n?ws of conse
quence that was reliable respecting this move
ment in the "A'ilra Chronicleand numerous
statements made In the extras of our neigbbirs
of the fifar and Republican there were also
many rumors, , 4c.
Now considering that the Chronicled extras
?were made up Of ib# news of the Star's extras,
this talk about our own "statements" audits
^'reliable news" la about the coolest thing of a
Hot season.
But yes, the C hronicU had one bit of exclusive
tfw? ?the following to which that paper
give the prominence of double leads:
A Rebel Scouting Party in the City.? The ser
geant of the Second Pr -clnet^ reported this
morning to Superintendent Webt> that fire
mounted men, whom he was satisfied were
rebel scouts, came past the police station, and,
after a short time devoted to observations of the
vicinity, disappeared.
??A stranger dressed In a grey coat and black
pants, supposed to be a rebel scout and mount,
edonadnehorre, was also observed by other
parties. He appeared to be making a tour of
observation."
This u a serious charre to make against the
loyalty and efficiency of Superintendent Webb
aad bts force, that they permitted rebel sooars,
knowing th?m to be such, to make leisurely
noire of oteervation directly under the noses
of the police, and then to move off unmolested.
It U also a grave charge to m?Jc* agtinst our
mi) itary au thor lU-s. mat squads of rebel scouts
are permitted to ride through oar lines at will
to make tours of observation. Bat we take it
that nobody was mislead by aueh a etlly aad
transparent bit of sensational writing designed
to sell a ftw extras. The fact is that the his
tory of American journalism dots not show
another instance of a paper?either from de
sign or inadvertently??o persistently gulling'
Its readers at does tbe Chronicle. Monkey Run
correepondence, Saltpetre Care stories and
balr-elevating yarns of rebel raiders In buck
ram, (gray) perambulating the streets of Wash
. ington, and each like "news" of Chronicle mm
ufacture, have raarto that paper tbe laughing
stock of the country.
A Scrpo6BD Rbbkl flag ?On Saturday
last, Opt. Camp, A. Q. M. at the Soldiers'
Rest, received Information that certain parties
In tbe city were preparing a flae for presenta
tion to the advance enard oi the rebels when
tbev entered the city. Lieut. Oemmill, of the
V. R. C. stationed at that point, proceeded to
tbe house df-eignat d. and there found a fine
flag, of which the following is a description,
Which he took po?ee?g!on of:?Leneth, three
feet; width . about 18 inches; with a white field
about 18 inches square, on which are two nar
row blue silk stripes running from corner to
corner, each stripe having thirteen stars over
it (making twenty six in all), with two stripes,
the upper one red, and the other blue. Those
baying charge of it said ibat it was intended
for a division of the Sons or Cadets of Tem
perance, but the officers not bring conversant
with tbe emblems and flags used in that ord?r.
took charge of it, and ha^e referred the matter
to the proper authority. *
Railroad Communication TJwtkterrttpt
kd.?The train which left Baltimore at ten
o'clock this morning arrived on time, the road
at that hour being free and no rebels are re
ported to have been near it. At noon the tele
graph communication of the railroad company
between here and Philadelphia was open, al
though at that time the wires of the American
Company north of Baltimore wwrenotat work.
Some of the passengers by this train report
that early this morning small bands of rebel
cavalry were seen in the neighborhoods of
Coekeysvllle and Qovanstown, north of Bal
timore.
Sunday Excursionist* Baoobd?Yester
day morning a number of gentlemen, to avoid
the beat and dust of th? city, made a visit to
the Prince George side of tbe Anacostia to
spend the day in the cool shade af the oaks.
Unfortunately tbey were bagged by the mili
tary, who seemed to think the partv were loit
ering around after a suspicions sort and de
tailed until morning. Sunday visits beyond
the District lines are not safe at present.
Thb Navigation of thb Riv*r?Pilots
and others navigating the river find consid.
erable difficulty in getting up the rlvpr, in
consequence of the buoys at I<ow?r Cedar
Point having been moved?one entirely, and
tbe other about four miles from its original
position. There are one or more vessels ashore
there constantly.
