There la datlv practice with tbe large palxhana. constant drill, and the strictest maintenance of discipline Inquiries are continually made whether any i baturies have been raised by the State troops, on ; the western side of the fort. Thla Is the side near est the land, on which there ere no casemate. Col Dlirick declare, even before the sec?salon of Virginia, that be should regard any attempt to raise batWIes there as an act of war. and.wltboot waiting for Instructions from Washington, should demolish them forthwith Not a s'ngle appear ance of aggression has ye' been made, however, nor do 1 believe that anything of tbe kind la in prospect There is no movement of runs. mor tars or ammunition possible from the Interior; and the little steamer which make* dally passage* from Norfolk to Hampton is so closely watched that she could scarcely land a ptrru?e1on cap without its being detected. The surveillance, In every direction, Is Incessant Sentinels are posted at the bridge over the creek, and all eomraunica tion from without is carefully excluded; although this has been done mor* for the pur|>o*eof pre venting annoyance from fugitive slive*. than as a measure of precaution, or to keep out citizens of Hampton. All of the barracks and woodwork In the Inte rior of Fort Monroe, have been burned Carroll Hall, a brick building, Is the onlv ed'flce which has been allowed to remain. Officers and sol diers, are alike quartered In the casemates The trees, whose beauty and shade are among the chief attractions of the interior of the fortress, have, of course, not been cut down. The seven ty-five acres, Includtd within the vrst stronghold, would be bleak indeed, without their presence upon the parade. Not a little annoyanee was experienced, and some nilsundrrst-ir.dlngs w?re created, previous to the entire stoppage of intercourse oetween Hampton and the fort, by runaway negroes Not many day* ago. a doz*>n or more escaped over the Mill p ? l- 1?u? 4 ? - - i.i ii vnr?

Some of them were not recovered by their owners, but uot oB into the woods The Hamptonians complained bitterly thatthev had notbe?>n brought by th'1 troops to tbe guardhouse The Colonel replied that he had neither right nor authority to do more than to eipcl them from the preciocta under hla command, and that therewith they must be content One wench managed, howwer, to remain three weeks li* tbe fortress, going about from kitchen to kitchen, before the fact of her being a alave wise discovered Do not believe any atory to the eflect that Pott Monroe It In dinger of being taken Such reports are gotten up for effect by enemies of the Govern meut.
