Buell, was cotniug ?lowu Main street, some seven or eight workmen employed in a shoe house, near the sus pension bridge, threw an American flag out of the wiudow. A woman employed in the establishment, upon discovering the Hag, being of secesh persuasion, pulled it into the room in presence of the men, and took possession of it. The men, be ing justly indignant at this outrage, pro ceeded down stairs in a body, and demand ed of the proprietor whether the flag bad been taken down by his instruction or with his kuowledge and consent. The proprie tor answered that he had given no instruc tions in regard to the matter. The men theu asked if, in case they procured a flag at their own expense, they would be per mitted to hang it out of the window, to which the proprietor answered that when he wanted a flag to hang from his window, he would get one. At this the men, seven in number, all of whom are true and loyal, announced that they would leave the shop, which they intended to do last evening, or as soon as they completed the several jobs upon which they were engaged. This publication is made upou the information and authority ot the men themselves. P. S.?Since writing the above, the pro prietor of the shoe bouse has called on us. He says the flag was an old tattered one, and that the reason Why it was taken down was because the people were laughing at it from the street. ftgfSmrpiNG Stokes to Monterey.? We learn that large shipments of Quarter master's and Commissary stores are now being made to Monterey from Clarksburg, both by wagons and by pack mules. The mud on the roads along the route', is, in mauy places, belly deep to the horses. A letter from the scene of operations gives some idea of what it costs to trans port stores to Manterey. A two horse wa gon takes eight barrels of hard bread, about seven hundred pounds net weight, costing theGovernment three dollars per day for each two horse team and wagon. Being fourteen days making the round trip, the total cost of transporting of seven hundred pounds of hard bread is forty dollars, ex actly six cents per pound, making altogeth er ten cents and one-half per pound. The mule packers generally put two hundred pounds upon each mule, and the Govern ment allowance for each mule is trine pound of oats, and twelve pounds of hay per day. They load with oats. s?y one hundred mules, which will take twenty thousand ponnds, atod by the time they make the trip to Monterey and back, occu pying fourteen days, as they do not go over fourteen mile3 per day, they will consume twelve thousand six hundred pounds of the oats, besides the hay, leaving a balance of seven thousand four hundred pounds. Nine men at $24 per month, and one train mas ter at $40 month, are sent in charge of each train of mules of the above number. New Creek on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad is now made a post, and large shipments are forwarded from there up the Moortield valley toJMonterey Tri-WeekV C months, ** 3 u .$1,75 . 1,00 35c. ? 1 !C fray-D11.

JCSyAcciDKXT at Kenwood.?Yesterday morning a most distressing accident oc curred at Henwood. by which a woman named Mrs. Currau had an arm badly crushcd and a leg brokeu. The employees of the road were backing some cars off a switch. A little child was upon the track and the mother of tho child seeing its danger attempted to snatch it from under the wheels of the cars and in so doing was injured as above state-*s Although three cars passed overthe^Qgyitwas unharmed. Nothing, however, but the promptness of the engineer, Mr.'Wm. Jordan, in reversing the engine and in whistling down breaks, prevented the engine from crushing the <*hild into a shapeless mas?. Tows.?Major William Wallace, of the 15th Ohio Regiment, who distin guished himself in command of his Regi ment at the recent battle of Pittsburgh Landing, was in the city yesterday. He has had the command of his regiment for several weeks and the labor whioh devolv ed upon him in consequence together with the deprivations of camp life have some what impaired his health and he is at home on a furlough. Major Wallace is a resident of Martinsville, opposite this city, and he is a man of whom his neighbors and Mends have reason to be proud. jgy-IssTRiicrioiis In Kkiard iio Pbison kus.?General Fremont lias issued a circu lar containing instructions in regard to prisoners, somewhat as follows :? . Prison ers will not be surrendid to the United States Marshal until they are indicted. When the Major-General Commanding is in the field, and it is not convenient to com municate with him on certain cases, they shall be referred to the Department Judge Advocatc, Major U. M. Corwine, tor his opinion and direction. Persons who are charged with disloyalty and sent to prison, by the order of any com manding officer of a Division, Brigade, Reg* iment or Post, shall be sent to Camp Chase to await the- orders of the Seoretary of War.

All persons taken with arms in their bands, who shall have been actually en gaged as guerrillas at the time of their cap ture, shall be tried by Military Commis sioner, at the Headquarters of the nearest Brigade Commander, and the proceedings in each case, submitted for Gnal decision to the General Commanding the Department.

Mr. Waahburoe, of III., from tbe Com mittee on Commerce, reported a bill grain ing powers to the Secretary of the Treas ury additional to those conferred by tbe bill of the 13th of July last, providing for the collection of duties on imports, and for other purposes. He caused to be read a letter from tbe Secretary, urging the im mediate passage of the bill, the same being important to tbe public interests, in view of the fact of our occupation of New Or leans. Tbe bill wa9 passed. The bill provides that if any vessel or other vehicle shall be refused a clearance or permit by tbe Secretary of the Treasury or by bis order, and shall proceed to any foreign or domestic port, it shall be for feited to the Doited States. When clear ances or permits shall be granted, bonds way be required Id tbe penalty equal to the value of the vessel and cargo for any ad herence to the conditions annexed. The cargo shall be delivered at the port of dis tinction, and no part thereof u?cd to give aid and comfort to any part of the coun try is insurrection against the United States. Mr. Stevens from the committee on Ways and Means, reported a bill malting appro priations for tbe support of tbo army for tbe year ending with June 1863. The House took up and briefly discus sed the bill granting pensions. Mr. Goodwin, of Me., said it bad been carefully prepared and unanimously re ported from tbe committee ou Invalid Pensions, after being submitted to tbe Commissioners of Peusion9. The bill pro vides pentions on account of all persons whether regular or volunteer engaged in military and naval service who have been wounded since the 4tb of March 1861, and who may hereafter be disabled or wounded while in the service of the United States, and in line of duty. The consideration of the subject was postponed till Tuesday next. SKNATfi. Mr. Harlan presented petitions in favor of emancipation.

On motion of Mr. Wade the Homestead bill whs taken up and amendments were adopted, excluding from any person who baa borne arms against the United Slates, or given aid and. comfort to its eaemya, from the benefits of the bill. Mr. Cttrlile, of Va., offered a substitute for the whole bill, providing that all com missioned and non-commissioned officers who have performed services in this war with foreign nations and all the militia volunteers and State troops of any State or Territory who have performed military service in aid of the Federal Government, or in reference of said State or Territory against the armed forces of the rebellious States and all commissioned and non-com missioned officers of the Navy, who have performed a similar service shall bo enti tled in lieu of the $1,60 bounty to enter 160 acres of unappropriated public lands at $1,25 per acre, or 80 acres at $2,50 per acre. He was opposed to any squandering of the public lauds, especially at the pres ent time. ' On motion of Mr. Pomeroy the bill was postponed till Monday. The Confiscation bill was discussed by Doolittle and Wade, and the Senate then adjourned. The Siege at Yraktown Before Yorktown, May 1st*?On Tues day a steamboat was seen with a load of troops at Yorktown. They probably came from West Point, 30 miles above, indicat ing that the enemy are being reinforced in stead of preparing to evacuate. Battery No. 1, at the month of Wormley creek, commanding the rebel water batter ies at Yorktown and Gloucester, opened yesterday afternoon on the enemy s ship ping at a range of about two miles. The first shot, which was followed in rapid succession by others, caused the rebel ves sels to beat a basty retreat out of range. No damage was supposed to be sustained by the rebels as the range had not bocn obtained. The gans were then directed towards the works at Yorktown and Glou cester with a view of getting a reply. Tbev were not long kept waiting when a large pivot gun stationed on the beighu at Yorktown sent a messenger which canned everyone to jump for the trenches. The firing wo* now kept up qnite bnsk ly for two hours trom both sides with no damage so far as we were concerned, al though some of their sheila came too close to make it pleasant. Tbeaccuracy of our gunners, considering that this was their first attempt with new seige pieces was ac knowled by competent judges to bo the most admirable. Some of our Bbells were seen to explode directly over the enemy s parapet's which a moment ago were lined with men. About sixty shots were fired from our one or two hundred pounder Par rot gnns during the afternoon. Wbnt dam age the enemy sustained is not known. The rebels opened on our works where some of our workmen were employed, about dusk throwing shells at intervals during the night but hurt uo one. Private Ohas. Young was wounded last night while on picket duly. April showers continufi to visit us daily retarding in a considerable degree our military operations. . Two deserters belongiug to the Missis sippi battalion, commanded by Col. Taylor and camped near Yorktown, deserted last night while on picket July. They are both northern men but can give little or no in f0raens?0'jobnson and JIagruder made speeches last week to all tber troops, call ing on them to nse every exertion to defeat the northern invaders, and stating that the* should never surrender as long as there was a man left, and that if tbey were defeated at Yorktrwn the cause of the Southern Confederacy was gone, as they were determined to rest their cause in this their last, battle. .

List of Killed and Wounded at the \ Battle at Pittsburg Landing Cincinnati, May *2.?The Commercial has from its correspondent, with the array of General Halleck, the following official fig- j nres of our loss at the battle of Pittsburg Landing: Gen. McClernand'sDivision?Killed 251, , wounded 1,351, missing 230; W. H. L.

Total killed 1,735; total wounded 7,882; total miss ing 3,956. Total killed, wouuded and missing 13,763. About 300 wounded have since died. Our burial parties report between 2,500 and 3,000 rebels found dead on the field. The Commercial publish cr passages of a letter from General Grant, in reply to a letter informing him of the nature of criti cisms of bis management of the battle at Pittsburg Landing. General Grant says : "I will go on and do my duty to the very best of my ability, without praise, and do all I can to bring the war to a speedy ter mination. I am not an aspirant Icr any thing at the close of the war. There is one thing I feel well assured of; that is I have confidence in every brave man under my command. Those who showed the white feather will do all in their power to attract attention from themselves. I had some dozen officers urrested for cowardice in the first day's fight. These men are uecessari ly my enemies. As to the talk about sur prising me, nothing could be more false. If the enemy bad sent us word when and where they would attack us, we could not have been better prepared. Skirmishing had been goiug on for two days between our rccconnoiteriug parties and the ene my's advance. I did not believe, howev er, they intended to make a determined at tack, but simply a reconnoisance. My head-quarters were at Savannah, though I usually spent the day at l'ittsburg. Troop* were constantly arriving, to be assigned to Brigades and Divisions, and all ordered to report at Savannah, making it necessary to keep an officer and some one there. I was also looking for Buell to arrive, and it was important 1 should have every arrange ment complete for his speedy transit to this side of the river. The correspondent with Mitchell's nrmy gives the following explanation of the man ner in which Beauregard's dispatch was taken at liuutsville. The wires were bro ken at a point beyond lluntsville, and Beauregard's dispatch read at lluntsville, and was being prepared by the operator there to be forwarded to Chattanooga, by locomotion, and from Chattanooga, to be forwarded to Richmond by telegraph, when General Mitchcll surprised the town, and immediately seized the telegraph office.? General Mitchell himself solved the cyper, after hours' study. There is no doubt a3 to the genuineness of the dispatch. From Fortress Monroe. Fortress Mo.vroe, May 1,?A llag of truce from Cranuy Ulaud this afieriiooo, brought down an English nobleman and several newspapers, giving particulars of the capture of Fort Macon and some ad ditional details of the fall of New Orleans, together with other iuieresting items. The Norfolk Day Book of this Thursday morning says that no telegraphic des patches were received last night. An order from the Provost Marshal Pa shaw, prohibits nil huckstering with the military district of Norfolk, and tho pnvi ilege of selling poulty, game, fish, fruit and vegetables is restricted to those who raiss or catch the same. The order exteuds the privilege of bringing oysters to market from May 1st to Juue 1st, audallows butch ers to buy pork. The Wilmington N. C. Journal of Tues day has the followiug iu confirmation of the report of the fall of Fort Macoo, tele grahed from here yesterday : We have just learned that the firo upou the Fort was opened at a quarter before six o'clock on Friday morniug, and the en gagement between the Fort and the Federal batteries was kept up till 7 o'clock that evening, when the Fort became whol ly untenable and was surrendered as above. All the guns in the side of the Fort oppo site to that attacked were dismounted, and all but three of the guns bearing on the enemy's batteries were also dismounted.? The enemy's central batter} of breaching guns was within 1100 yards, the right aud left flanking batteries were more distant. It turns out that the report of 15 of our men being killed on a scout some days . siuce agaiustthe enemy's pickets is untrue, one man only was wounded and none kill ed until Friday, the last day of the attack. From other accounts it is gathered that during the bombardment of Fort Macon 7 rebels were killed aud a great many wounded A Suffolk correspondent of the Peters burg Express, under date of April 30th, says all were expecting to hear some'biog from the Virgiuia this morning, but the Norfolk Day Hook is as silent as the grave upon the subject. 1 forbear to report ru mors. What the rumars referred to iu this par agraph are, may possibly be inferred from the fact thnt a rniuor was taken from the Norfolk papers to Petersburg' yesterday, that a very prominent navul officer bad re rigned his commission. The Petersburg Express of to-day, says that many rumors were in circulation yes terday. Among them was a report of the evacuation of Memphis and Corinth, and a report of the occupation of Wilmington, N. C., by Gen. Burnside. Breckinridge and Ilindman have been appointed Major (feuerals, and Col. W. A. Beal, of Ark., a Brigadier General. The Richmond Dispatch of to-day, says .that the panic on the subject of a scarcity of food, is one of the most causeless im aginable. The |road from Danville to Greensborough is rapidly constructing, and will opeu North Carolina, Teunessee, and soon Georgia and Sonth Carolina, for supplies to feed the whole State of Vir ginia. How causeless the panic above alluded to. may be inferred from the fact that an adjoining column of the same paper chron icles the sale of butter at $1,40 per pound in city markets. Six Yankee and seven domestic traitors and one Confederate soldier, arrived in Richmond yesterday. The former belong ed to an Ohio regiment, and were captured iu Bath county, Va. Pittsbdroh Lasdi.no, May 2.?A gen eral order, was issued yesterday transferiug Major General Thomas' Division from the army of Ohio to the army of Tennessee, and Maj. Gen.
