She is now engaged cruising between Fort Waablngton and Aquia Creek, and running In the little Inlets and creeks, overhauling and destroying boats All boats of which a satisfactory account Is not given ere summarily destroyed, thereby very much Impairing the facilities for communication between Maryland and Virginia Occasionally a shot or shell is tos*? d over into Mathias Point and other placcs where the Confederates are supposed to be, but without el'cltlng any reply Night before last the George Page (Confederate) attempted to run out of Aquia rreek, but the Ice Hoat engaged her, and after a few shots compelled her to bent a hasty retreat.

It Is reported that batteries are being put up at the White House; and on Wednesday night live boats of armed men were seen by a schooner to cross over from the Maryland side, and land at that place. At Fort Washington all la quiet and In good order. Several prizes lleat the wharf, taken by the fleet down the river. To-day, the resignations of Chief Engineer Charles Spencer and Second Engineer Andrew tiuranca, of the Freeborn, were accepted, and those positions vacated. We did not learn who are to succeed the resigned officers. The steamer Philadelphia went down this morning. NAVY TABD. Workmen are now employed clearing away the rubbish of the building demolished by the late explosion, and preparing; for the erection of another building. The walls were so shaken that they were pulled dow n with ease Many of the brick will anawer however In the conatruction of the new building, and materials for mortar are already on the spot. For the preaent the work carried on In the building previous to the explosion Is done outside, under a canvass protection from the weather. The two men who were so baldly wounded are rapidly recovering, and will soon be able to resume their business. MARCH!N"'? UNDER THF. HOT *C!?.

PiarisiKT Questions ?The Maysvllle (Ky ) Eagle asks the following very suggestive and pertinent question*: Did your ever hear one of these State Rights men, who talks about the expenses of the war, blame the Confederates for bringing the expenses on us?
