THE NEWS HERE. To Applicants for Commissions is thi Rmilai Akmy ?We are requested to state that tlM only regular Army offices remaining to b?

In ex planation of the hitherto unaccountable fact thai the Baltimore papers have continued to publist full detaila of the movements of troops througt that city and here, (the American of thia morn lng, to the extent of more than a column,) assert th.<t nothing has been heard by them from anj Government officer indicating a wish that th? publication of ?uch information should not b< iniia Thus. white the Washington papers are re ligtoQfly refraining from noting arrivals, depart urea and movement* of troops. the Baltimore pa pers, circulated here by tbe thousand and reach ing Richmond with the utmost facility, are al lowed to publish tbls class of information by thi column. The same may be said of Philadelphia and New York papers. The restriction shoulc be general, else what good ?

THI QUESTION SIT AT RK8T t The decision of Mr. Justice Wayne, of the U. 8 Supreme Court, "/? tk* matter cf Edward A. Sitvnt, on petition for m writ of kabeas corpus ad tMbjitiendum," settles the question that thoae , who have volunteered for two years are bound to I serve In the army for two years; and not for three t months only, aa was contended by those In the , two years regiments who are already tired of the service. Three-fourths of all the mutlnoua eonduct that has disgraced the army, grew out of the prevalence of the foolish Idea that the two years regiments could be lawfully held but thre? t months, exploded completely by this decision. I Little trouble will now be bad In making such regiments serviceable troops; as they hive not been up to this time. The Government owes It 1 to the cause to make examples promptly of thoie ! regimental officers, who being tired of the seri vice themselves, have spread dissatisfaction with I It, by encouraging their subordlnstes to be ln, subordinate, under the plea that they were but three months?not two years men. If half a dozen of them be promptly court-martialed and 1 broken, the service will be essentially benefited i The following la the decision of Mr. Justice Wayne In the Stevens cats, the substance of which. It will be recollected, was published in the Star on Saturday last: Ordered, that the writ of habeas corpus ad 5*6fuieudum awirded by me on a day prior, to wit, on the lotb instant, upon the application of Ed? ward A Stevens, the petitioner aforesaid, be, i and the same Is hereby, discharged, and that the aforesaid Edward A Stevens be, and he Is hereby, remitted to his military duty In the First Minnesota regiment, commanded by Col.

Test?Wm T Carroll, Clerk S - C.U. 8 About 11 o'clock a. m. yesterday, a countryman came into one of the camps on the other side of - the river, and spread a report alleging the ap5 proacb of Beauregard* army in considerable ? fores. The troops there were very generally I turned out and prepared to receive the enemv. and Information was promptly sent to headquarters here; resulting in the instant summoning of all officers to their posts who were at church, or e elsewhere not immediately with tbeir respective commands. The occurrence is worthy of notice, 9 la so fares it demonstrated the great improvement in the condition of the army on this side of 1 the Potomac that has lately been achieved. A 1 month ago, four times the number of officers, iu 1 proportion to tbe force now here, would have ' been found absent from their posts, and it would " have been found impossible to hunt them up ' speedily. Now, however, no officer leaves his 1 post except with written "leave,''and after Uklug due care to leave directions where he is to be found instantly, If required. i a mask's de?t. On Saturday last a train of a hundred and two . wagons loaded with tents (that bad never been s unbaled) reached this city, from the column of Maj. Oen. Banks. Their appearance on Pennsylvaula avenue gave rise to stories representing ' the army of Oen. being in full and hasty retreat on WashingtonSecessionists, of course, started them, and glibly rolled them over their tongues to all who would listen to them. } Tbe truth is, thefo had been forwarded to Gen. j Banks a large aurplus of tents, which had never r been used, and they were accordingly forwarded I by bim to this point. That's all there Is in the k appearance of the large baggage train from the upper Potomac on Pennsylvania avenue on SatnrHitr 1m* ** uftAA i ami w A 8 A detachment of the Sturgls Rifle* (that one ? here a? the body-guard of Gen.

York 79th, who are to be conlned there for the e present?on the Rip Rape. Their departure from the guardhouse creating B something of a sensation In that vicinity, and the 3 Impression was drawn at once by the wondermongers that General McClellan was about to take the field A company ef regulars relieve the 1 detachment at the guardhouse. BACK AO AIR. Prof. Jo?eph H. Daniel, who left here a * week or two since, has returned. He Is said e to be quite communicative In regard to affairs B "over the line," and reports, among other thln^, * that Capt. P. B. Schaffer (well known here as the > former commander of the National Rifles) gained some distinction by his gallantry at the first Bull Run engagement, and was promised a brevet; 1 but on the-'second round" he left his company, for which be was arrested and taken to Rich, mond. Mr. Daniel also says hi* son made a narrow escape at Stone Bridge, his throat being grazed by a nr. u?kct ball. A MOVEMENT OV THI IITIMT. r It la no longer to be doubted that the gradual > concentration of troops In and about Leeaburg, grow* out of tbe withdrawal of almoat the entire force of Beauregard and Johnson from potnta ' higher up the river. In all, the force at Lee?burg oa Thursday last waa probable In the nelghborr hood of 13.000 strong The movement of the eolumn of ?ien. Banks, down to tbe mouth of the ?

Last night the steamer Philadelphia went down to Old Point with about 175 mutineers, from the New York Thirteenth. Twenty-first, and Seventyninth, and the Maine Second Regiments. These men are ordered to the Dry Tortugas, and w'lll probably be shipped at Old Point for that place, though many are of the opinion that they will be engaged for a time on the Rip Rapa. Some forty of the New York Peventy-nlnth were taken to the yard, but only fifteen or twenty were sent off. Yesterday, the side-wheel steamer Ceres, Capt. J. B. Parkes, Engineer, lTraffady, purchased In New York, arrived at the yard, where she is to be Immediately fitted up for a gun boat.
