Another telegram from the same city says : 'McClellan received one hundred and flfty two votes on the first ballot."_ FROM THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC. Oar Los?es in the Late Battles net so great as at First Reported?Rebelt'Using the Weld?? Read Below Roami' Station? Their Trials and Tribulations? The Rebel Dead of Thursday'?? Fight Left Unbnried. [Correspondence of the Associated Presa] HJBADqCABTBBS ???? OP TBB POTOMAC, Aug. 2D?Evening.?The reports published in some of the newspapers that the losses of the Fifth Corps in the battles of the 19th, 19th. and 81st of the present month, reach five thousand, greatly exaggerate the facts. It is now defl ?altely ascertained that they do not exceed thir ty -eight hundred, and as stragglers an d others still continue to come in, and the sick are not all accounted for, it is believed that the aggre gate loss in all these engagements will not ex ceed thirty-five hundred. The loss of the 2d corps in Thorday's fight will not exceed an aggregate of l,5f?>, accord ing to the official statement, and it is hoped and believed that when all who are now within our linee report, 1,200 will embrace the entire loss. The rebels are said to be nsing the Weldon railroad below Ream's Station, and running their supplies thence to Petersburg around our left by wagon. As this requires a large force for train guards, and to defend the road against incursions of our cavalry, It cannot be either a very profitable or pleasant means of communi caticn, without taking into consideration the lof s of time involved. Arrangements have been made, it is under stood, for rturying the rebel dead left on the field of last Thursday's battle. The fact that the enemy did not perform the funereal rites for their own dead, nor carry off all their wound? d on that occasion, Is pretty palpable evid'uee flat, although they drove back our iSecoml Corpa, they did not achieve any very complete or creditable victory. T. -day nothing ot interest has occurred. The usual cannonading and picket firing wa-? rather more brisk, and continues this evening, but it is without any results of consequence. I ROM THE FRONT. The Charlotte Vanderbilt, with the army mail and passengers, arrived here this morn ing. She reports everything unusually quiet up to ren o'clock yesterday morning, the nour at which she left City Point. Squads of rebel deserters come into our lines daily, all of whom ask permission to be sent North. The Vanderbilt brought up fifteen of these deserters, who were sent to Provost Marshal Ingraham to be disposed of. There are quite a number ot rebel prisoners no wat CiMr Point, who are kept under a strict guard. They will be forwarded to the prison ers' camp at Point Lookout in a few days. Personal. ? Secretary Seward has left Washington for a short visit to his home, at Auburn, New York ST*From Mobile we have details of Admiral Farragnt's reconnoiesance up the bay and a description of the obstructions between the city and Dog river bar. The Admiral does not find anything that would stop his reaching the city, should be undertake to do so. He had also succeeded in obtaining the services of the man vis set the? torpedoes for the rebels, and he is now engaged in talcing them up. ??G Isbmael Day, who defended the flag of the Union at the time of Harry Gilmor's raid, and had his property destroyed therefor, is to be remunerated by an assessment upon the rebel sympathizers in Baltimore county. ?^" A large number of tte rebel prisoners at Elm ira are said to be of a religious turn of mind, and have frequent prayer meetings; but a correspondent says they never pray for Jeff Davis. ?"There are over three thousand bush whackers on the north side of the Missouri river. *7"Aa American won ? 1,000 in a wrestling match with an Englishman, down in Jersey, a iew days ago. ?VAINOTI CE.?An adjourned meeting will be \YW ;-eld at Island Hail, at 8 o'clock TH?B8 ?u?T ??G????? fepteniber the 1st, for the pur rose of fillio J the quota of the Seventh Ward.

San Ildefonso, 31 July, 1361. Dear Sie : Having brought to the knowl? i edge of the Secretary of War the action taken I on various occasions near tbe Government of her Majesty by some foreign representatives ' accredited to this court, with the object of in ( troducing some favorable modification of the ?' rules observed at the fortress of Tarifa and I Isla Verde to oblige vessels navigating the iurisdictional waters Of those fortresses to lolst the flag of their nation, a practice which they often neglect, alleging a very improbable , Ignorance in vessels which so repeatedly pass ? the straits, the aforesaid Secretary replied to ) me, under date of 21st ultimo, that the Depart ment in his charge and at that date had Issued I to tbe Captain General ot Andalusia, who has ? under his immediate command the fortresses ! of Tarifa and Isla Verde, the instructions fol ' lowicg, to which In future the commaadants . of the said fortresses will adhere : 1st. To every vessel which on crossing the line of said fortresses, within range of its ' cannon does not show the flag of her nation, ' (the Spanish flag floating over tbe fortress,) 1 notice sball be given of tbe neglect she Is fall ing Into by discharging a cannon loaded with powder only. . . ,. 2d If after the lapse of ten minutes she should not have hoisted her flag, a shotted gun shall be fired ahead and across her prow. 3d. If notwithstanding these two indicated notices and the lapse of another ten minutes she omits to hoist the flag, a third discharge with ball shall be fired at her masts. In bringing the preceding disposition to your knowledge so tbat you may give a translation of them to the Government of the American Union, the Queen, my Sovereign Lady, flatters herself that the Cabinet of Washington will find in the measure adopted a fresh proof of the sentiments of deference which her Govern ment entertains for the nation you so worthily represent.

IHsmay of the Original. Jacobs'_A meeting of the National Democratic Association was held last evening at their hall, opposite the Metro politan Hotel, and it was largely attended?the moot of the erowd being on hand waiting the news from Chicago. The non-arrival of the news of the selection of a candidate for the Presidency postponed the display of the new flag, as was contemplated, but in front of the hall a new transparency was displayed bear ing a representation o? an open book, on the pages of which were the words, ?? The Union and the Constitution.'' In the absence of the president. John F. Cal. Ian was called to the chair, and W. U. Mlnnix acted as secretary. An invitation was given to persons to sign the constitution and become members, when over thirty walked forward to the secretary's table. Among the signers were some most unex pected ones, apparently, and the Original Jacobs of the association expressed considera ble sotto roce disgust at the turn things were taking. Muttered exclamations or "confound it, just look at that man signing !" ?? Yes, he was the inkiest kind of Wigwam wooley-head, four years ago !" ?' Oh they'll rush in on us as the Bell and Everett crowd did into the Re publican Wigwam, after the September elec tions last time!" ?We ehan't stand half a chance !" ? There's another of 'em ! Aiu't he an enthusiastic convert, subscribing$2 to the association and ?5 for the celebration, Oh thunder!" And so the comments ran around. In fact the "faithful from the start'seemed decidedly uneasy lest these "eleventh hour laborers" and "latter day saints" should be accepted on pay-day as equally worthy with themselves, who had borne the heat and bnrden of the dav. The business first in order was tbe consid eration of the resolutions offered by Dr. Clay ton, declaring it to be the duty of the Govern? ment to take immediate steps to exchange pri soners, who are now dying rapidly, which resolutions were nnder consideration ou the adjournment of the previous meeting; and they were taken np, when Mr. D. Rutherford moved to lay them on the table: lost?yeas 18, nays -ji. Mr. Lakenan was opposed to accumulating: a load on an overloaded horse, and thonghtthe. resolutions should not have been introduced there, although be privately endorsed them, and he believed every Democrat Individually seconded him. The association had nothing to do with the prisoners, and it could not aid them. The more who die the more sin the Government would have to answer for. He was opposed to taking action on anything iu which the Democratic party was not con cerned. Mr. John Davis asked if these resolutions did not concern the Democracy. The condition of onr fellow-beings concerned every Ameri can citizen, and he sppealed to the president if it were nofefp. The chafer Mr. Callan.) It is onr business most decid?Iy. Mr. Clayton said that the resolutions wonld rot be witnont their effect, and explained that they were intended to fix the responsibility on the Administration. Mr. J.H. G. McOntcheon asked if the Chi cago Convention would net attend to the sub ject. After some further debate Mr. Rutherford moved to indefinitely postpone the subject, and it was carried?yeas, '25; nays, 2L Mr. R. S. Davis (lawyer) was called out, and remarked tbat he had been travelling north lately. In Boston he was unable to find a Lincoln man, and every where he went the people were up in arms for "Little Mac," and he predicted that just as sure as he received the nomination he would be elected. [Ap plause.] The chair remarked that the meeting would be held each night this week. He also an nounced that they had advices from Chicago tbat the delegates from the District were not admitted. Adjourned. Railway Diptrib?tihg Post Officb.? Hon. ?. N. Zevely, Third Assistant Postmaster General, sorr.e time ago conceived the idea of facilitating the transmission and prompt de livery of letters, newspapers and mail matter generally between this city and New York and intermediate points by a system of rail car dis ?ributniir pott offices, whereby the work of stamping, assorting and distributing mail mat ter will be done in a car prepared for the pur pose while the train is in motion. One of the new cnrs for the purpose was at the Baltimore and Ohio railroad depot last night, and was visited by nigh officials of the Post Office De partment, and by a number of railroad men and invited guests, who were warm in their approbation of not only the system about tu be inaugurated but of the workmanship of the car and tbe commodious and perfect manner in which tbe interior is arranged. The car was constructed at the car-works of tbe Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Co., at Mount lare, and was completed on Saturday last, and is now being run over the road to wear off tbe roughness. The dimensions of the car are 45 feet 5 inches in length in the clear by 9 feet I inches wide, with a height of about 7 feet at either side, but, ?tbeingonthe "double-decker" principle, the center is fully 9 feet. On either side are words informing the public that it is tbe "through line between New York and Washington." There are also the usual aper tures through which letters may be conve niently dropped in tor mailing, in the Inside are t ivo ca^es, each containing two hundred 'pigeon holes," of rather larger size than ordi nary, and forty boxes, each one foot square, so arranged that the matter placed in them car not be jostled out by the motion o? the car. ? here is in front of each case a narrow shelf for tbe accommodation of the clerks, with drawers beneath and hooka for the mail pouches, wtiile on th? opposite side is a large table for stamp ing purposes. There are also closets for clothes, sofas, water coolers, and every conve nience for those who shall travel with the car; and it is fitted up with the most approved ven tilating windows. as soon as the train starts the clerks assigned to duty in this novel postoflice will commence the distribution of all matter Into boxes for the several localities to which the matter is di rected. The way mails will be made up first, and at each station mail matter intended for the particular locality will be pnt off, and matter for other points on the route received. The great advantage of this system is that cor respondents can mail their letters at the last moment, and even when the car may be mov ing off, yet with the assurance that all letters will reach their destination safely and with unusual dispatch. This city will reap many advantages from the .?y^tem, for all mail mat ter for the Departments and for citizens will be arranged upon the cars, and will be handed to the several carriers and messengers within five minutes after the arrival of the mail. So at New York, for at that end of the route also a similar distribution will take place. The car now here was fitted up at the expense o? the Baltimore and Ohio Rai'r^ad, und-r the direction of Messrs. W. P. Smici and F. Per kins, from the design of Hon. A. N. Zevely, Th'-d Assistant Postmaster General, who will personally superintend the inauguration of the system. In a short time a similar car, now building at tbe works of the Camden and Amboy Railroad, will he completed, and as scon as it arrives here the plan will be carried into offect. This is an entirely new arrangement in this part of the country, although on some of the Western roads smaller cars are running, and the system bas been found very successful there. Last spring an experimental trip was made in one of the ordinary cars of the road, between tjis citv and New York. Notwithstanding the noveitv of the thinz, and the fact that the clerks worked und'T disadvantages from the motion of the car, the e-?p?riment was a very success ful one, over ?,(*)0 letters b^iug distributed facb trip; and thi*. tod when tney hid not one die eighth of th.* conveniences to be afforded bv the new car. 1*: is ieally some ting "new nnder the sun," and thousands who often are annoyed by re.t sun of delayed mail? will think Postmaster General Blair, Mr. Zevely, and City ? m r aster Bo wen, for the inauguration of the n?w system. Yoitko HOTEL Tuisvae.?Last night, Au gustus F. Boyle and George W. Dahbs, IT and m years of age respectively, were arrested by officers McCoIgan and MeElfresh, as suspi cions characters, and taken to the Fourth Ward statiOH.

United States Hotel *virt the Pennsylvania House, by which genUemea were deprived of watches and money to a considerable amount within a f?w weeks. One of the watches stolen at the United States was found on Boyle and identified. Boyle kept a diary of his travels and tricks, which the police think will impli cate him in .several other robberies. George W. Dabbs is a very sharp fellow. Some time ago he vas arrested by the 4th Ward police, but escaped from the cells. He was also] on another occasion seat to jail, and es capea ?roxn there.
