rf the theatre of war. In oil onr armies
/rein the Potomac to the Lower Mississippi,
:Ll note of preparation is already changing
to the signal of advance. Meade and Bailer
be said to constitute the left of this
license aggressive line, as they are Jointly
driving employment to the enemy’q right,
resting on the rebel capital. Onr force in
Mississippi and Tennessee, with ChatUnoo
and Knoxville as the base, form tbe
centre, and the grand movement from
>*cw Orleans is closing in onr
IcC. The part to be played about the rebel
capital will doubtless do no more than to
prevent tbe withdrawal of tbe rebel troops
to the aid of other points. We look to
■speedily see great and striking changes of
S position in the centre and left. Gen. Grant
■ with a well supplied and eager army Is now
on the confines of the inner realm of the re
iAellion, & region of refuge from all parts of
e Confederacy' until now. And this he
means to penetrate. "Wc look to read of his
icaling a.blow at Longetreet within a short
time, while Folk and Johnston will hare too
xuch to do each in his own behalf to
cQCcor him. For the first time since
the war began, the grand army of the
Union, operating as one, isjacting in combin
ation, and this lime the pcndnlum movement
tvill not avail the rebels. It will be remem
bered that it is now a twelvemonth since the
rresident, with characteristic sagacity and
clearness of perception, ordered precisely
-ueb a grand simultaneous movement. It
h!is cost ns one year’s delay to get rid, of in

rc now ready. We could wish our armies
cre in larger force, lor the drains of the
car have been immense, and the present
veakening of force by the well-earned for
bugbs ol veterans is no light one. But in
this particular, also, the news is most en
couraging, as our Chattanooga dispatch of
yesterday attests.
Let the people now fall to work and fill up
the column rbat must move steadily from
these States to the frost to fill up our armies.
A little longer period is offered for volun

next ninety days. Let the demands be met
with promptness, zeal and patience. Let the
people imitate our noble veterans, and re

We give ah interesting and important

amendments, which will return it to that

is to be gained, that it wQI no more be made
game of haitic-door and shuttle-cock be

Enrollment BUI completed. With more dili
gent regard for the pnbUc interests, Congress
might have given ns the bill a month ago.
The advices from abroad give a certainty to
previous rumors that the rebels have recently
possessed themselves of formidable additions
to their pirate fleet and are certain to make
themselves beard from in an attackupon some
exposed point orport. Theperils of our mer
chant marine will be temporarily brightened
and their losses increased, hut the duty of the

New Form, Feb. 12.—The New York Tri
trees ays: “A letter from our London cor
respondent contains some precise informa
tion on a point of importance which, aa yet,
has attracted little or no attention. The
news, in a nnt-ehcll, is that at this moment
there is a fleet of six rebel war steamers in
Chinese waters. These vessels were fitted
Jjul in England by Sherap Osbom, ard Eng
lish naval captain, and were recruited among
the officers and men of Her lirittanic Majes
ty's nary; They were under contract to the
Chinese Government, bnt when they reached
China a disagreement arose between Osbom
and the Chinese authorities, and the vessels
were not delivered, but thrown on the mar
ket and sold at auction—Osbom. officers,
crews guns and all—to Jefferson Davis. It
is not*unnaturally intimated that Osbom had
=omc Blight expectation of reaching this re
sult when he left England. Funds for the
purchase arc said to have been provided In
' p-rt by the sale of the rebel rams in the
Clyde. There are now bnt few American
-hli.s in East Indian waters, and it Is thought
probable that this fleet, in company with the
other rebel pirates, may be destined to attack
San Francisco. In order to show their re
spect for British neutrality, the British crews

Gen. Meade made a brief speech in Phila
delphia on Wednesday in response to Mayor
Henry’s address of welcome. He said:
When I came to the city to visit my family I did
sot anticipate such a demonstration as this of to
day. and. through you, I thank the dUreas of
Philadelphia. Ifcar, however, you attach too
much importance to the sen-lees yon have been
k*nd enough to mention. With the Divine assis
tance It is to the oOccrs, and particularly to the
b, role valor of the private soldiers, wo owe the
Tlc’orT of Gettysburg. [Cheers.] Had it not been
lor the spirit of determination is every private
soldier when the army leit Frederick, that he
wonld leave his bones upon the field or drive back
the invader, no ability ermine would have suf
ficed to win the battle of Gettysburg, and, there
fore on this occasion 1 desire to give the brivstc
rs >3dlcr* this public acknowledgment. ]Cheers.
Xcforc that battle I felt the deepest concern, as 1
ti tw what would be the result of a failure, and to
my ofllcers, brigade, regimental and company com

for the victory which crowned our efforts. I assure
you that the army, which has sometimes hem

As a statistic It mav not be uninteresting to know
that since March. 16C1, when tbit army leit its
lines in front of Wnshlnctan, not less taaa one
bliundred thousand men have been killed and
rVcundcd. Such a record proved the valor of the
troops. That army Is inspired with a spirit of de
votion to its country, and when the season for ac

lead that army, with the knowledge that its ser
vices arc appreciated at home, and I shall be in
spired by the thought that my fellow citizens are
interested in my welfare and will appreciate what
ever is done. Allow me again to thank you.

Cot McLasen, of the 2d Minnesota car
iijry, received orders yesterday to report with
his regiment immediately at New Orleans.
Eight companies are at Fort Snclllvg and
Fort Ripley, and two at Fort Rldgdy. Quito
a nnmber of the men are absent on twenty
five days’ ftirloughs, so that It will require
two weeks at least to rendezvous the whole
regiment at Fort Snclling.
The reriment was raised with the express
understanding that It was for service on the.
frontier, and the Governor so announced in
his proclamation calling for troops.
Gen. Pope has planned a second campaign
against the Indians, in which this regiment
was expected to take the leading part.
This order will prevent an active campaign
against the Indians next season. Governor
Miller and Generals Pope and Sibley arc
making strenuous exertions to have the order
countermanded. The design is to send the
regiment with an expedition into Texas, but
it would require months training after reach

valuable for service. The regiment was raised
during November and December and have

Baltimore, Feb. 12,1801-
The Western express and passenger train
on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, which left
Baltimore last evening, was waylaid nine
miles cast of Martlnsburg, at 2 a. m., by a
band of 40 guerillas. They had placed some
obstructions on the track, running against
which the train was thrown off. As soon as
It stopped the guerillas boarded, and, pre
senting pistols to the heads of the passengersi
commenced robbing them of watches and
money. They got from forty to fifty watches
and from $35,000 to $40,000, including ex
press money and about $8,500 in the posses
sion of the conductor. They also rifled the
valises and carpet bags of the passengers, and
took all the good hats they could find.
The passengers were completely taken by
surprise, and offered no resistance. The
rebel robbers were dressed in United States
uniforms, and under command of the notori
ous Harry Gilmore of Baltimore. It is re
ported that they did not disturb the moils
nor attempt to destroy cars. They made off
sis soon as they secured the booty. Their
plans were to capture also a passenger train
from the west, but it received timely warn
ing and stopped at Martlnsburg till the dan
ger was over.
Several bodies of our cavalry are pursuing
the guerillas from various points.

Auditor, and failing with him, the Second
Comptroller, to pay $25,000 on the charier
party under which the Philadelphia voyage
was mode. "
The lat£er statement was made by Morrill,
upon his own responsibility, and convicts
Meigs of a falsehood in a recent official com

was reported, Congress ought to pass a Joint

The Military Situation lin
(.From Our Own Correspondent.]
Nashville, Tcnn., Fob. 9,18*4,
The military situation in Tennessee Is un
changed—substantially as it tv as. The troops
comprising the left of Gen. Grant’s army at
the time of the panic "Week before last, were
moved In from the different advanced posts
which they bad occupied and concentrated at
and about Knoxville. This movement you I
will remember took place soon after Gen. I
Grant’s visit to that part of the line. The !
enemy, under Longstreet, was threatening his
flank and the importance and danger ot the
position necessitated the order to concentrate.
All this was accomplished without great loss.
Gen. Foster absolutely unqualified by physi
cal disability for a field command has been
relieved by an active and competent officer,
and the'command of the 23d corps given to
Stoncman, an officerof ability and experience.
Troops which could be well spared from the
center have been moved up within support
ing .distance. Supplies have been crowded
through as rapidly as possible and everything
now indicates readiness for defence at any
time, and a rapidly approaching preparation
to assume the offensive. If the enemy on our
left will wait a time with patience, they will
be accommodated with all the battle they
covet, without the labor of a march from the
Smoky Range to Knoxville.
As to the reported reinforcement of Long
street, there is no reliable evidence of its
truth. There have been innumerable rumors
to that effect. It has been stated as a fact, in
dispatches from Knoxville, os well as from
thiscity, Onlyyesterday, the associated press
telegraphed to this city, and I suppose to all
others, the wild conjectures of a World let
ter written hero, in relation to the position
in Grant’s front. But there is no evidence of
their truth. Longstreet occupies substan
tially the same position to which he retreated
when Sherman came thundering on his flank,
before Knoxville. His cavalry followed Fos
ter’s brigades as they fell back from their
scattered posts, and picked up straggling sol
diers, abandoned cattle and deserted wagons.
But his army has never, since the siege, been i
within thirty miles of Knoxville, and It is
hardly possible, since the admirable disposi
tions which Grant bos made, that the enemy
will at present make the attempt There is
every indication, however, that another bat
tle must be fought in East Tennessee. Move
ments that have token place and are still in
progress, ore delaying the collision, and it
mgr be averted by events in other quarters.
The rebel opportunity for an offensive cam
paign has passed. Before Grant’s visit, our
troops were badly scattered, and almost des
titute of supplies. A campaign undertaken
at that time,wonld have been fall of danger to
ourposscssion ol East Tennessee. The manner
of our falling back from Strawberry Plains—
the loss of cuttle and stores arc bat an Indica
tion of what might at that time have happen
ed if a rebel army had then and there been
• moving upon.ua. But the rebel commanders
failed to seize the opportunity, and the dan
gcris passed.
The army which under Hardee has held a po
sition near Dalton, since the battle of Mdslon
Bldge, Is believed to have fallen back. CoL
Burke, of the 10th Ohio, was sent by Gen.
Thomas, with a flag of truce, for the purpose
of delivering Into sccesh bands a bevy of re
bellious women, sent outside onr lines by
order ot Gen. Kousscan, and to effect an ex
change of surgeons in our hands for an equal
number captured by them. Ho did not find
the army, as was expected, ot Dolton After
reporting to Gen. Thomas, and receiving In
structions to proceed until they were found,
he proceeded by the main country road os lor
south as Kingston. At this place—forty-one
one miles south of Dalton, he found the ene
my in force—was very hospitably received,
and accomplished the object of ms flag.
Kingston Is the junction of the Mobile Ball
road with the short railway which runs to
Borne, where the Confederates have exten
sive and valuable foundries for the manumc
tnro of cannon. , ..
It is quite evident, from this information,
that the main army in Thomas’ front has
tallcn hack, and tha£ the presoot Intention la
to hold Borne. A portion of the army has
been sent to Mobile. The trath with regard
to their leaders seems to be that they have
—the column pushing southward from Mem- |
phis under Merman—the movement from
Vicksburg to Jackson—the formidable cav
alry raid ' threatening them under Seward
Smith—the expedition of the 15Ui corps south
of the Tennessee, with the rapid concentra
tion and reinforcement of theaimy at Knox
viQe. have confused them. --Thenew combi
nations on the military chejs-bowd astomd
ed and bewildered them- The latest and best
, information by.flssmtcra .Mid ecomr show*
plainly that the rebel officers have been at a
loss how to Interpret the movements of
Grant. They may solve the secret of his
strategy in time to meet hi™ at the objective
point Time will demonstrate.
