No cabinet meeting was held to-day. General Butler has not arrived in Washing ton, notwithstanding the assertion in New York papers. He is, however, expected here in a few days. The Government has information from Brownsville, Texas, tluat New York houses have been snipping goods South to be ex changed for cotton, but which are sent direct to the Confederates via Matamoras, and that goods are sold as cheap in Brownsville as in .New Orleans. The Richmond Examiner of the 21st says that all citizens are to be formed into compan ies for the defense of' the; city against Yankee raids, another of which will be attempted at once, as they think IU-hmond defenseless.? All, without regard to exemptions, are to be organized and drilled in such manner a3 wi]l not interfere with their regular business. The bulletin board of the N. Y.

MRS. HJ5SRY X. GITTINGS. my i8?gw* The l at ? Campaign of^Gen. Hooker. ? The recent failure of Gen.- Hooker is the most, signal which has yet overtaken this brave but unortanate army of the Potomac and it would now be appropriate for us to present to our readers an analysis of the late brief campaign. We have obtained authentic intelligence re specting the late operations of Gen. Hooker, but deference, to the c n eived wishes of the Gove:raentj we shall withheld the obs rva ions we had proposed to offer under this head, and for the preparation of which we have gathered valuable materials derived from sources the most enlightened and trustworthy. ^ The con siderations of military piuden^e which make it proper to practice this temporary reticence in favor of the presei-t commander of the Army of the Potomac, so long as lie seems by his retention in command to possess the confidence of the Admiuistration, are not likely to exist always. For the day must soon come when it will be as proper to review the failures of Gen. Hooker as those of Gen. McClellan or Gen. Burnside, his predecessors in misfortune, and this whether in his next .essay he shall succeed in retrieving his reputation, or whether still greater disasters are destined to be the har bingers of his ultimate removal. By retaining him in command the military authorities of the Administration have signified their disposi tion to give him another trial, and if they have satisfied themselves as to the ediencv of this course, we shall not be swift to contest the wisdom of a decision made under circumstan ces of responsibility at once so delicate and so tremendous.?Nat Int. 1 ? .... - i. .. The current-rumors of a new combination, by certain radical Republicans, against the Secretary of State, are believed to be without foundation. It is supposed that they arise merely from the presence of Messrs. Sumner, "Wade, Wilson and Chandler, at what is regard ed as an unusual time.
