SchoEeld has left St Louis for Washington city, and probably reached the Federal capital yesterday. We will probably learn the - i . ,. uuuie oi nts successor belore we go to Press The great necessity for sailors in our navy has compelled the Navy De partment to retain many on vessels whoae time has expired, and fears are entertained by naval officers that evil consequences may result. Additional bounties should be offered for sailors as for soldiers, that the full complements maybe kept on all our vessels of war Mr- Ashley, of Ohio, would, on yes terday, introduce a billjintoJCongress for reorganizing State Governments in dis loyal States, in accordance with the sug gestions of the President's Message and Proclamation The Army of the Po tomac has not gone into winter quarters, as reported, and it is not certain that it w!11 do so Nebraska and Colorado will soon be admitted into the Union as States, and a new Territory will be form ed out of a portion of the former Gen. Buford, one of our most efficient and dashing cavalry officers, is reported to be dangerously ill, and grave fears for his recovery are entertained by his physicians An expedition sent out from Yorktown a few days ago, broke up a camp of rebels at Charles City, Vir ginia, between Williamsburg and City Point, on the Jams rivtr, killing and capturing a number of rebels. Our loss was trifling A convention of United States Assessors is in session at Cleve land, Ohio. We are not advised as to the object of the convention From East Tennossae, we have a confirmation of the rimor of the disaster and heavy loss suffered by Longstreet in his retreat from Knoxville. He has lost 3,000 pris oners and deserters, and had been com pelled to abandon his siege guns after burning the carriages. Tho guns had fallen into our hands. His army is rep resented to be in a most demoralized and disheartened condition. He was last reported at Rezersville, probably Rogers ville, still a long way from railroad com munication Burnside's army at Knoxville had plenty of provisions when the siege was raised, and two heavy trains, with supplies, were met between Cumberland and Knoxville A fire occurred at 5 o'clock yesterday morning in the machine shops of the Ohio & Mis sissippi R. R. at Vincennes, which re sulted in the destruction of two buildings. A heavy snow storm, and the favorable direction of the wind prevented a much greater los3. Noon Report. By arrivals from bo low we have New Orleans dates of the 7th and Mem Larire Quantities of cctton arrive at New Orleans, chiefly for Gov ernment Trade restrictions at Mem phis were becoming even more rigid j than formerly, and the work of conscrip- : tion went on briskly The steamer i Von Phul was fired into near Bayou : Sara, on the 8tk and her Captain and three of her crew were killed and four passengers were wounded. A gunboat silenced the batteries, which were com posed of 0 and 12-pounders A report that prevailed that the iron clads were about to return from Charleston Harbor is contradicted, and Admiral Dahlgren is reported to be preparing for impor tant work Charleston presents a gloomy and dismal appearance at night, no gas being allowed on the streets or lights in the houses. By last night's Mail. We have ad ditional particulars of the occupation of Elizabeth City, which is likely to prove an important affair The Chesepeake has been heard from, and is probably re captured ere now. From Grant's Army. VUI. aaawMJ wow .iuaua --" Blander of the 29th regiment, reached " - c f . . . 1. iju uiusb uunursujs service. ae Was in all the battles near Chatta'nooga, and the terrible lojs in his regiment, 171 killed, wounded and prisoners, nearly half of all that went into the fight, at Chica mauga. proves tlwt the courage made so auspicious at Sbiloh has not degener ated. He brings with him the boiy of his nephew, Captain Dunn, killed at Chicamauga. He also brings the grati fying news that three-fourths of his reg iment have re-inlisted for three years more, and obtained furlough to come home in a body for the holidays. Col. Albert Heath, of the 100th regi ment, was also in the city yesterday on his way home to recover from a severe wound received in the victory at Mission ary Ridge. He was struck by a large fragment of a twelve pouud shell on the breast, tearing loose several ri'o., and jamming the upper part of the breast bone in upon the bones of the shoulder, injuring the lungs and causing a deform ity which will require much time and Buffering, we fear, to remove. He speaks in the most enthusiastic term of bis reg iment, which stood for two hours under a fire in which they lost one hundred and thirty men, without moving back an inch, or being able to return a single shot Not a man attempted to retreat, even to carry off the wounded. When the Colonel fell several of the men came to him and desired to take him to the rear, but they were ordered back to the rank3. It was their first real battle, and they bore themselves through it as Hoosiers should. The Colonel also says that every man would re-enlist for three years if it were not that they have still two years to serve, and a re-enlistment is unnecessary to take them through the war. Even as it is, many express a strong desire to co in for the new term and a big bounty. The next day after the battle at Missionary Ridge, even be fore the roll had been called after the fight, the regiment was ordered up to Knoxville to support Burnside, and it was there at the time the Colonel left Chatt anooga, last Thursday. He says the reports of the demoralization in Bragg's army are by no means exagge rated; that it is doubtful if more than one-third of its effective strength remains- t Ilmx U .mmuLiii. ra tail ur deserters with arms, who won't o-ivo themselves up to our forces, but live upon the rebels in the vicinity, and band together to resist any attempt to force them back into the army. But deserters are constantly coming in, and he has no doubt that fully 10,000 have been or will be taken from the rebel army in this way, and by direct capture, before the campaign can be renewed. He expresses very decided belief that Lsngstreet will rejoin Bragg, and doubts if we have the means to prevent it. He says Gen. Grant is still suffering from his fall at New Orleans, has grown thin and stooping, and shows marks of so great a loss of health and strength as to create fears of his recovery, though he still works as indefatigably as ever. When it was announced at Grant's head quarters that Bragg had been removed and Hardee put in command of the rebel army, the General quietly remarked, "He mJ cnoice, an opinion that seems to be very generally entertained in both ar mies. The abuse of our dead and woun ded at Chicfamauga by the rebels, of w hich so fearul an account appeared in the Cincinnati Commercial recently, was even worse than reported; the correspon dent didn't tell all the truth; probably was afraid to tell it all for fear some of it would not be credited.

Ledger Office 40 Park Row, ) New York, Dec. 7, 1863 To the Editor of the Chicago Tribune : Sir: My attention has been called to a statement in your paper to the effect that I have made a " return on the New York Assessors list, 'no income;' " and this you call " one of the beauties of th Income Tax." I do not know what mo tive could have promoted vou to o-ivr. os culation to such an extraordinary false hood, jf you will inquire of G. P. Put man, Esq., the Collector of Internal Rev enue in the District where I reside, you will find that I was one of the very first persons in this city to pay my Income Tax; and if you will investigate still furtner I venture to assert that you will find the sum much larger than paid by the publisher of any other weekly paper ifl the United States. The statement that I had paid twenty thousand dollars for a certain horse is also false. 1 have bought no such horse, and consequently paid no such price. This, however, is immaterial; I am accustomed to the pub lication of such yarns, and care nothing about them; but I demand, as a right, that the libellous fabrication about "the non-payment of an income tax be cor rected at once. Robert Bosxer. Vixcinxes, Dec. 16th. A fire occur red at the machine shops of the 0. & M. R. R. in this place this morning at 5 o'clock, burning two of the buildings, namely, a store house and lumber shed. The damage is estimated at $3,000- A severe snow storm was raging at the time, and the wind was strong from the Northeast, which prevented the flames from extending to the other buildings and causing great destruction of proper ty. The workmen and citizens came promptly to the rescue, and the fire was soon extinguished. Gen. Schoffleld en route to Washing tonFears of it Mutiny among the Sailors at New Orleans An Import-, ant Bill to be Introduced into Con gress. Special to Tribune. Washington, Dec. 15 Gen. Schoffleld is on his way to Washington and is ex pected to arrive to night or to-morrow There is no news that can be published from the Army of the Potomac and no present prospect of a change of com manders. That the army will again start for Richmond this winter is highly improbable. A letter received here from a naval officer on board the flagship Pensacola, at New Orleans, states that the embers of mutiny is fast gathering among the sailors of that harbor. It seems a great many of these sailors iplisted for one year and their tern has expired, but the Navy Department, being pressed for men, is obliged to issue an order that no 3oldiers be allowed to come home, even if their time has expired, until relieved by others. This order is said to be felt very severely by a portion of ou-sailors, and the officer who writes fears mutiny may be the result. Mr. Ashley, of Ohio, will introduce to- i day an important bill nrnvirlinrr in n. cordance with the suggestions of the Pres ident's Message and Proclamation, for the establishment of provisional militarv Governments over districts of country in rebellion, authorizing loyal citizens of such districts to organize State Gov ernments. The Bill of Mr. Ashley confers upon the President the power to appoint for every district in rebellion a military Governor, who is to have civil adminis tration until State governments can be formed and Senators and Representa tives to Congress elected. Whenever the people desire a reorgan ization of the State government, themil itary Governor is to order an enrollment of loyal elections. As soon as the num ber of the latter shall be equal to one tenth of the voters at the Presidential election in 1860, the military Governor shall order an olotinn v- - Ci.nc vention which shnll hp nnl,n.;, ""."vii ... i. v..

Ali laws of former Constitutions of these districts, making distinctions between i black and white persons, shall be abro- I gated, and any infr: ngement of individu- !

The House Committee on Territories will soon report bills to bring Nebraska, Uah, and Colorado into the Union as States, and also to create a new Terri ntory out of some portion of Nebraska. The bill to increase the pay of the ar my meets with general favor. C.ur.o, Dec. 15. New Orleans papers of the 7th received, contain but little news. The U. S. steamer Bermuda, with a cargo, and the steamer Antioc arrived on the 6th. The cargoes, consisting of cotton, were handed over to the U. S. prize court Thirteen hundred and fifty-seven bales of cotton from Skipwith's Landing, some distance above Vicksburg, was received on the 4th, understood to be from New York, and not offered at New Orleans. sales on tue otn were oou oaies ai 725(;73 for middling. The Memphis cotton market was more active on the 12th, but prices low; sales 350 bale3 at 65(5,67c. The military order preventing the peo ple from bringing in cotton is still in force. During the past week still more strin gent measures have been put in opera tion. The Banks have been ordered to pay out no gold to depositors or on checks.

The conscription is being rigorously enforced, in accordance with recent or ders. A destructive fire occurred on the night of the lifts. Loss not ascertained. The steamer Von Phul arrived from New Orleans on the 7th with 79 hogs heads of sugar and 338 barrels of molas ses. She was not fired into while goino down, as reported, but on her way up, on the 8th, was attacked twice above Bayou Sara. The firing was from a battery of 6 and 12 pounders on the Louisiana shore, throwing shell and round shot: Capt Gorman, commander of the boat, was killed by the first shot. Three others of the crew wfirp killpd Four passen gers were wounded. Forty-three shots were fired. Three passed through the hull, others struck the boilers, and five raked the boat from stem to stern. A gunboat was conveying the Von Phul, and at the same time of the firing was within 200 yards of her and silenced two rebel guns. The steamer Perry arrived from Mem- Ehis with 300 bales of cotton for 8t ioui3. I. RITTENBEEG, Manufactarfr of the newly iurentcil PEEISCOPIO Spectacles Latest from Charleston. False Reports Corrected Dahlgren Preparing for hot Work Darkness and Distress In Charleston. New Yokk, Dec. 16. The Herald' correspondent, off Charleston, on the 8th says the rumor that Dahlgren would not use the iron-clads again in Charleston Harbor but send them South, probably to Mobile, is untrue. Dahlgren is preparing for a great movement, and the iron clads will not leave until our flag waves over Charles ton or its ruins. Sumter is still subjected to a heavy fire. Our guns have full possession of the harbor. In the city, darkness prevails at night, as Beauregard has ordered the street lamps not to be lighted, and allows ne light3 in the houses. Nothing but famine and terror rules in the city, aud were it not for the mili tary leaders the city would be surren dered. Great activity prevails in both Departments. Convention or U. s. Assessors.
