D1)RATION OP THP WAs --The Washington correspondant of the New York .Journal of Co~mmerce cays : The three:, nmonlths men are soon to be withdrawn from service, and their places taken by three years men. All arrangements indicate on both sides pre I,:ratious for a protracted war. The ,,erations in \Western Virginia and on ti, Ohio and the Mississippi will, at anl eariy stage of the war, be conducted on a large scale, under General McClellan, now se,lc to General Scott in com nmand of the lUnitdl States army. A descent upu, Memphis, with an over whelming foree, by a flotilla and an army, is one of the greatest operations embraced in the programme of the war. As this will require much prea , it may not be attempted till next * . The remnov.al of the Montgomery - ernment to Richmond wou~ d bt, as we have abundant evidence saleady-at tended with a transfer of immete bod ies of Southern troops to Virginia. They are pouring in from all the Ssiltrn States, and the prospect is thait the Southern crop of corn, wheat, ac., Will be ample to sustain them. The mon export of cotton during the blockade of the seacoast," and the prohibition of its export except from Southern seaports, will cause a still further diversion of slave labor in the cotton States to' the productiou of corn and cattle during every successive season of the er.- There will be less of luxury a~ -ax trtavagance, and perhaps even somslack of ordinary comforts in the Southern States during a seven years' war, andl the same may be said in regard to a portion at least of the Northem States; but it is evident that on both sides all the privations consequent upon the chances of the struggle will be acceplted and endorsed with tesignation s·b hope of a more happy future. -ll---6c~ IPorII~At h PoRRxAnoN.-Experjments, says the Nashville Union, conducted for several days by the military and finan cial board, demonstrate that the mainie ball in a Tennessee rifle with the same charge of powder used with the round ball, has a range and force three-fold that of the round ball A rifle carrying 100 balls to the lb., and with the ordinary sights, 800 yards, is a more deadly weapon, projecting the ball with more accuracy and fbse than the rifled musket. The rifle of larger calibre has greater range and iSae. The ball should be of less diameter than the round ball, so as to admit of greater rapidity in loading. The cart ridges should be dipped-ot if a eart ridge is not used the ball should be dip ped-in a compound of beeswax and tallow, and a pitch should not be nted. A rifle thus used may be fired 100 times without cleaning. It is thought proper to call the atten tion of the people of the States to this fact,so that they may know the value of the weapon which all possess. ROTH, DEBLIEUX & 4CO.
