It was necessary for the successful prosecution of tho war, that there should be no change in tho Admiiiis iKitiou, at IVashington, for any sjjjh change would involve a change of measure :uid of military ami civil lubois, which could only result in ruin to tho national credit aud na tional euu.?.

WAntNOTOS,Maj- X ' T-lie expedition which was sent out last Week and destroyed Madison Court House, met no rebels till about a half mile from that town; a slight skirmish then took place, in which tho rebuls lost Hve men and the Union soldiers none. The enemy thcu re turned to the Court House The Star has tho following further par ticulars. The rebels suddenly disappeared but on our forces entering the town receiv, ed a volley of musketry from the w indow of the houses, nnd they were for a time coin ptjlod to withdraw. The officers in com mand of tho rcconnoitcring party ordered another advance, when again o destructive tire was opened on them from the houses, j antl there being no other way of smoking me re we is ntu outers were lssueit that the town should be flrcd. The torch was applied to a number of houses affording cover for the enemy, where upon tho later hastily decamned. lpavinff , our foi-f i's in full possesion of the place. i ne names, However, spread very rapidly, and there being no means at hand whereby the tire could be checked, a general con flagration was the result, and in a short timo almost the entire town was in ashes. The act was certainly not a wanton ono on the part of the I'uiou ollicqrs, but was rendered 'necessary by the desperate act of the rebels, who used the house ns a shelter for the purpose of slaughtering our troops. The cavalry expedition seut out from Vienna on Thursday last under tho com mand of Col. Lowell, returned to that place yesterday after having visited Leesburg, Itectortown and Uppervillc. Near the hitter place, a portion of Moseby's guerrilla band wits cncottuteied, when a sharp fight ensued, which resulted in the capture of 23 prisoners. Colonel Lowell lost three men killed nnd four wounded. Ho returned in safety to Vi enna with tho prisoners captured from Moseby, and three blockade runners, twenty five horses, a largo (ptantity of wool, tobacco nnd other contraband goods picked up on the route. TUn War In Vli-(inlti. Vashinotox, May 3. The counsels of the military authoritic are kept remarkably secret. Heretofore, on the eve of a battle, some idea could bo formed of the contem plated movements, but now they are matters of meres speculnt ion, both among prominent civilians and even army officers. The ut most confidence, however, is reposed in those having the direct conduct of affairs, and due credit is given for their wisdom iii prevent ing premature disclosures. The Navy Department has received co pies of the Hichmond Examiner of the 2Sth ult. A Fredericksburg correspondent of tho Examiner, writuig under date of April 27th, says : The opinion prevails in Washington that Lee's army, in numerical strength, docs' not exceed fifty thousand men. To oppose this force, or rather for the purpose of attack, Grant has required that tho Army of the Potomac shall be rendered one hundred thousand strong. To this end reinforce ments to that army have been continually passing up the Orange and Alexandria raii w ay for the past ten days. Ten days hence it will bo ready for the advance, which is universally desired in the United'SUntes, from Lincoln dowu, or up, whichever phrase you prefer. The commonly received opinion thnt Grant will attack Leo in front nnd in his fortifications is erroneous. He will seek to turn the flank of our army, and his policy is, evidently, to maintain his present posi tion until his organization and equipment are thoroughly accomplished, and then, by suddenly unfolding his strategy, to surprise Geu. Lee. He may march rapidly and with out announcement cither to some point of crossing on tho Hapidan, or Ilappahanuock, or to Port Hepublic, thence to Staunton, thence to Lynchburg. I think that an attempt to Bank on the east more probable, his army crossing at some of the lower fords of the Happahannock. This, however, is all con jecture, and but the echo of Washington gossip. A despatch to the Enquirer from Orange Court House, under dnte of April 27, says "that Avciill has gone to Southwest Vir ginia on a raid, and that Meade is receiving reinforcements over tue Alexnddria Rail road." Tbe l-'ort I'illow MiinHtirre. WAsifixoToN, May 2. The sub-committee on tho conduct of tho War, consisting of Senator Wade and Re presentative Goosh, have returned from Fort Piliow. Then took 57 depositions, nil of which more than confirm the newspaper accounts of the masacre. They say that it would bo impossible to exaggerate tho cruelties committed. Among the witnesses who were examined is the negro who was buried alive, and who dug himself out of bis own grave. There is no boubt of the fact that ono or more persons were nailed through their flesh to pieces of wood and their burned alive. Xot only on tho day of the surrender were such ficmiidi acts perpetrated, but on the next day, in cold blood. The victims seen by tho committee were most of them cut and pierced in the face and eyes with bayonets and swords, w hile other part of '.heir bodies wre ftuiu4 tad disfigured either by sUcl or lead.

The capture of Ply mouth, including General WHssei.s and hi command) is confirmed. Nothing is known her of the movements of tho Rebels; but it is reported that they have gono to Virginia. Should they attack Little Washington or Is'cwberu, their punishment would be fearful. The success ol the Rebels at Plymouth will not compensate them for the loss they sustained. From all accounts General Wna rki.s and his little band of fifteen hundred veterans fought like , heroes for four days nnd nights, leaving in every street heaps of Rebel dead .which they admit will number seventeen hundred. We hear all sorts of re- Sorts in regarel to the Rebel Tarn on the euso River, above the city. 1 lie .Newborn 1 tmn ot t tic 27th inst anr that on Friday last, April 22d!a large Rebel force appeared in front of Liltlo Washing- ton, but tlieir lines were deserted, nnd it, is said a vigorous stampede toward Richmond commenced. A military gentleman direct from Xew bern, 27th inst.. furnishes the following ad ditional particulars from North Carolina: It appears that the Rebel ram liuanokr, w hich sunk some of our best gun-hunts, nnd it ... which nssisted so materially in c.ipturing Plymouth, was injured in the tight, but us .

He further states that Neuse River, which is reported ready to General Stone has endeared himself to the move down on Newbern. The Newbern Timet of the 27th inst. con- tains the following additional particulars of the capture of Plymouth: "The Reliel force was tinder the command of Brigadier General Hokk, and was much larger than we supposed. It must have nmounieet to at least twenty thousand men. 1 he Rebel cavalry was turner the command of Briuadier-General Ransom. The first at- tack was made ou Fort Grav, which was situated about ono mile from the town, ou me jtoanoKo JJiver. l lie Kebel l-atterv which commanded this fort, it is said, was planted on Polk's Island, about a miiu dis- tnnt.

These place were taken iu detail, and after several repulses, were finally captured. Rut even then, it is said that General Wksski.s still held out, and fought the Rebels in the streets of Plymouth, throwing up rifle-pits for the protection of his men. ami was only overpowered by sheer force of numbers, be- j Clevehiuel to Chattanooga, and tho facili ty ing nearly 'twenty Rebels to one Federal i w ith w hich reinforcements can lie thrown soldier "It is also said that General Wessei.s pul led off his coat and went into the work himself with the most indomitable enertrv. throwing hand grenades. On the surrender or the plucc the colored soldiers ami Second I Loyal North Carolina stampeded for the I swamps. Meist of the negroes, we regret to j hear, are said to have been massacred. Thu j comduct of tho Rebel soldiery or the ollicers, or both, is saiel to have been barbarous in the extnne, and that they even went so far i as to threaten personal violence to the gal- I lant olel soldier who had commanded for so I nobly punishing them. It is reported that i the Rebel loss was between sixteen hundred and two thousand killed and wounth'd, , while .our losss was comparatively small. All honor to the heroes of Plymouth. i "The sword, sash aiul belt pteseuted to , General Wekski. by his veteran brigade were not captured.

The Tinut remarks editorial!): "The past two months have left impres sions on the minds of thousamls of people in Eastern North Carolina, which long years to come will scaiccly efface. These" two months encompass a period of deep anxiety, naturally produced by puling cvritls, and our close proximity to our Rebel enemies. Ever since the formidably Confederate raid on the first of Frbrtmry last, there has been at intervals, the clearest evidence of a de termination on the part of the enemy to re- take Eastern North Carolina. Time and j again the most positive testimony has come t wiihin our lines that at least two irod-clad j rams were preparing by the enemy on the Neuse auc Roanoke livers, with u view of j decending the samu and milking an attack J whenever circumstances seemeel to indicate ! a favorable moment.
