[Special Correspondence of the Chicago Times.] WASHINGTON, Jan. 7. Every posaifole obHtncle iias been placed In tho way of tho publication of Gen. Mc (.'lellan'g reuort. It in still in the prlnter'ii h.iiulii, and every meatiR will he resorted to in onier to neiuy ltH nprnmrnnee to tne last possible moment. . Enoiiffli Iiiib leaked out Ia regard to it to prove that It Is by far the most remarkable document of tho war. When It is ouee before the public. It will exhibit' a state of 'affairs between the Ad ministration on the one hand, and General McC'lellHti on trfti other, that will cover the former with infamy, and that will be a full justification and an ample vindication of tne whole career or the latter, me mem bers of the Administration: know thU so well mat they have hitherto suppressed its publication for that reason alone. And, now that its publication has been ordered by Congress, they are carping and grumbling at that faet, on account of the voluminous na ture of the report. Who Is Gen. Mcdellau, they ask. and what has lie done, that his actions should be thus blazoned by Con gress? It is all In vain, however, that the Ad ministration thus seeks to blind the people IrTt military services ol Gen. McClellau. The copies of the rejwrt ordered to be printed by Congress may be so few that not one In a thousand of the people can see it. But two of the largest publishing houses in New York have signified their intention of issu ing the report in an attractive book form. and there Is no doubt it will be bought and read with greater avidity, than any recent publication. ' The letter of Gen McClellan to the Presi dent (embraced in the report), written at Harrison's I.undlng, on the 7th of July, 1K02, has ill read v seen the lip-ht. and will no doubt, before this, have been laid before our readers. It was uiv irood fortune to c with Gen. McClellau at the time he wrote that letter, anil for two months previous, and 1 can well understand the circumstances under which it was written. Convinced that the machinations of ids enemies at Washington had prevailed, and that Ids tral- lant little army was to bo left to Its fate, he id conducted successfully the most extra ordinary movement of modern warfare, and had transferred bis army to a new base of operations on the James river. In trenched here bevond the power of the en emy to dislodge him, but expecting an at tack every day, he sat down and wrote this letter to the President. If he had never rittcu another Hue in his life if he bad never performed any other action than the writing of this letter it would be sulHclent to carry the name of George B. MeClellan down to posterity as a creut General, a pure patriot, and a statesman of the very Jirst eiass. in tins single letter are lulu down those military nriiie.inlesnillierene.n to which would speedily have brought the war to a 8ticcessiui termination; and not that alone. Out also those political principles which ould certainly result In the re-establish ment of the unity of the nation. If the war Is ever now brought to a successful termina tion, it will be solely by embracing and ad hering to the military principles contained in Gen. JUcciellau's letter, ir the lornier relations between the States and the uationr al Government are ever restored, it w ill be by embracing and adhering to the political rincipies conuuneu m mat letter.
