Hts withdrawal of bis advance forces was so precipitate,- as that some of his sick being transported, died on tbe road. Tbe cause of this sudden change of bis tactics was doubtless the impression that bia advanced tfoops were about to fall into Gen. McClellan's banda.

The " forward to Richmond*' men are again undertaking tbe management of the war. though before their eye* stands out in glaring light the Bull Run result cf their strategy They are now demanding tbat the war shall be made, in effect, simply a cruaade to act free tbe four millions of slaves If tbev are to h? irniiitixi ?? < ?? j ? ? D) aim ?uc war proves a successful one, it* result In utterly destroying tbe industrial capacity of tbe South, and flooding the North, besides, with a hundred free negroes for every one now in tbe non-slaveholdi ng States, would prove a worse blow to northern Interests than even peace on tbe terms of tbe oligarchy. But success could never crown a war waged for any such end. Those who have just subscribed fifty millions to aid 'be Government, and agreed conditionally to advance a hundred millions more, would button up tbeir pockets instead of again opening them on tbe 1st of as not a man of them sympathizes with abolitionism Nineteen-twentietbs of tbe soldiers of tbe t'nlon now in tbe field abominate abolitionism as heartily as secessionist!!; justly regarding the latter as being a legitimate consequence of the former. We do not believe tbat a single regiment in ths service could be brought to fire a gun In *ny such war as tbe " onward-to-Richmond " press would make tbe current contest?not one. Fortunately, the Government is neither to be coaxed nor bullied into changing tbe character of the war, aa such r.ewsp ipers demand. Nevertheless, unless stringent me&sures are promptly taken to prevent aueh parties from doing further mischief by discouraging subscriptions to tbe loan and disgusting tbe volunteers with tbe service, innumerable and insuDerable emharr -??iwi?n?? ?? likely to arise to the w?r'i proper prosecution The loyal portion of the community who sustain the Government for the sake of the restoration cf the Union?nineteen-twentieths of tfcos?- who do sustain It?will hail with joy the moment when the authorities be^in to turn tbe attention of the Provost Marsha's to the cava cf the "On ward-to Richmond men;" who may n*t be permitted to go at large any more than those who secretly plot schemes for the defeat of tbe arms of the United States These classes are engaged, practically, In theaame work?1 n embarrass!ng the Government's efforts to restore the Union by force of arms?one secretly, and the other openly. AJtOTIIKfc TSH*ZS4EE MtMBEft OF COXGKK<* A FKisossm. We learn that about the time of the arrest by the disunlonlsts of the Hon. Mr. Nelson, of Tennessee, im Virg,nia, the Hon. Geo. W. Bridges, an M.

McClellan a completed ?taff, which will doubtless be exten. sively copied by other journals. We have to say that it might have been better to wait until the completion of bla staff, before essaying to publish tbe list. He (Oea. McClellan) la now almost daily making aeerosions to it, as circumstances render such additions necessary. General (and Venator) Wilson, of Massachusetts, will probably go upwn it this week, as an aid. His position as chairman of tbe Senate'a Military Committee, his Indefatigable Industry, and his thorough knowledge of the New England troops in tbe service, will render his presence as s member of General McC a military family, eery serviceable.

AN AFFAIR or HONOR. We learn that on Monday- morning a rencontre took place between two French offlcera?Mr. Tas liler. ex-captain of the French company of the Garibaldi Regiment, and Mr. Chandone, tbe present captain of tbe lame ccmpany. The diffl culty seems to have grown out of tbe dissensions In that regiment. Tbe parties fought with the saber, and were both slightly wounded Had not the seconds Interfered, doubtless oue or tbe other of the parties would have been killed, as they fought with no little animosity and determination. Tbe pltse of meeting was near Greenwood Cemetery. THR FIRST or THR N*W GUN BOATS.
