Mr. Rateell'e Letter t? the Lenden Tlnae* [cosclcdbd.j Colonel Porter, an active officer of the regular army, and a man of great determination and vigor,at onoe organisedhi* aatrola, and, though the guard houses may be full the streets are empty. He set to work with such speed that Washington which went to bed in very poor spirits one night, found that the evil had vanished in 24 hours, and that next night she could sleep in peace. That the steps taken were vigorous, and that they were requisite, will appear from another order issued in support of the former. [Here follows General Orders No. 1, directing a vigilant patrol of the city, and commanding officers and men to stay by their regiments, etc., etc.j * The oitixen soldiery were astonished and were indignant, but they were nevertheless arrested snd " blackholed," and I confess it gave me infinite satisfaction to observe the very salutary results of the process. The Sanitary Commission, with considerable boldness, published certain recommendations for the improvement of the discipline of the army, which is indeed in need of change for the better. They ascribe the difficulties which they meet in carrying out reforms to lack of discipline, which thus injures the health of the army. Gen. Lana, who commands the Spanish troops in Cuba, has been over here on a tour, and ne expressed to me his profound astonishment at the state of things visible in the camps on the other side of the Potomac. He was here, however, at a bad time?just after the flight from Manassas. Hi* criticism, however, on laxy sentries, on slovenly and ill-equipped troops, on dirty arms and accoutrements, were just. Above all, he was amaxed that in an army of recruiU there was no drill or excreifle to be seen. Company drill is not much attended to; the battalion drill is of the most elementary charaoter; and, indeed, with the exception of the skirmishing at Cairo, I have never seen anything but ordinary advance in line, or marching past at slow time, or at the double in columns of companies or of sub-divisions,and such common movements This generally results from the ignorance of the officers as much as from the incompetency of the rank and file Gen McClellan is talking about brigade drills and field days, and there is some nonsense attributed to him about drilling by trumpet, which means, I presume, that he is about to have more attention paid to bugle notes in giving orders than is at present the case. The new levies, as far a? I can judge, are not equal to the departed three months men. and the camps are certainly not as well filled. There are about 21 battalions of infantry of all sorts, and 8 squadrons of eavalry in the capital, and around it on the left bank of the Potomao, up to the Chain Bridge. There are some 30 battalions across the river, and some 700 sabres, the whole force being probably under 45,000 men, not including Banks' column at Harper's Ferry, or the oommand of Gen. Butler and of Gen. Dix. at Baltimore. Of the 49 guns which McDowell's army took into the field, 25 remain in the hands of the enemy, and there is some deficiency in artillery, which Government is doing its best to supply. General MoDowell, 1 am glad to say, remains in command of the troops at Arlington, although serious accusations have been made against him in the papers, most, if not all, were quite unfounded. What oould he do with the materials he had, exoept, as the President said, * drive the locomotive as he found it." Granted bravery, heroism, devotion, and all that kind of thing, what could be expected of a regiment thus described is a New York paper: 41 In one of our regiments, while the Colonel was on trial Cor drunkenness, the Major lay drunk in bis tent, and the Lieutenant Colonel was so intoxicated at evening drill that he had to stagger up to the Adjutant and request him togWe the orders." The President is now vested with most extraordinary powers, such as were never heard of before, except under a virtual despotism; because by a recent bill he is enabled to dismiss officers at pleasure, without giving a court of inquiry. But the evil was enormous. Everywhere is the same atory. At Newport, the troops have been in a state of mutiny; officers have shot soldier* in self-defence. Demoralisation prevailed largely in Butler's force, and the men have burned down part of the pretty village of Hampton. The day before yesterday a soldier shot a comrade in the street, close to the spot where I was standing?one of many similar oases. The officers may not be responsible for all this, but they are to be blamed for a good deal of the disorder. As a treat for Prinoc Napoleon, who is f.assing bis time here very quietly, the Washngton papers propose that be should be invited to review the army by Gen. MeClellan, but I do not think he will be asked to do anything of the kind. A few months hence the suggestion would be less distasteful. Apropos of the Prince, it may be worth mentioning that when the President entertained him the other evening at the White House the band treated him no less than twice to the "Marseillaise." Lord Lyons, M. Mercier, and all the Ministers were present, but, owing to some unexplained reason, the Chevalier Bertinatti, Minister of the King of Italy, was not invited, which is all the more curious on account of the Prinoe's connection with the House of Savoy. On Sunday the French Minister, M. Mercier, (;ave a dinner at bis house, where the Prince s residing, to the Cabinet Ministers, at which Lord Lyons and the foreign representatives were present, as well as Mr. Sumner and other d.^un^anhed persons. The vapid air of the capital is scarcely ruffled by the Prinoe's presence. As a proof of the grand fibs which are manulactared here, and of the way in whioh they succeed, it may be mentioned that Gen. Seott waa deceived by the statement that Confederate troope'had desecrated Mount Vernon, wo far that he issued an order, not remarkable for excellence of composition, though full of feeling, calling on the United States troops to respect the place in oase they should be called oa to ooeupy the ground. The Confederates were never there at all, and Lady Georgiana Fane and a lady who is traveling with her had no difiealty in going and returning recently ander the esoort of a British subjeot. The teadepey, or rather the habit, of saying the thing whioh is not, and of putting out of all proportion to the truth the thing that is has been so developed by the war, that one of the most respectable journals ia the oity gravely and seriously leetares the whole nation on its indifferenoe to trath, and its inveterate love of exaggeration, in language which would be resented with acrimony if it were used by a stranger Criticism is always resented by the criticised, unless it be all sugar and treacle, and of all paople the most difficult to please are those who are vain, Irritable, unfortanate, and conceited. The voices which come from the other side of the Atlantic cannot be agreeable to a raoe above all things emuloas of military prestige. MOptat tphtppta bos." He will get them, and to have to pay for them preeently, but ia what will President MeClellan differ from Napoleon III, except in tenare of office? The United Slates army and nary will be made worthy of the young Republic, and in their hearts men rejoice at the prospects of a " strong Government," which must come, though they cannot see how, oat of the present conflict. I am not quite certain, that the silence which has obtained in Europe in reference to the conflict will not soon be resented as an impertinence and an insulting affection of indifference to that which Americans regard as the greatest sonUst the world has ever seen. No one can be honestly indifferent to the results, for they must affect Europe, just as any great disturbance in any State must produce an impression on the rest of the world. It is useles* to say th*t we are not jealous of the grandeur and Kloryof the United States, for the national vsattv would regard the thing as isspossible. It is, indeed, impossible to regard with indif- 1 ference the light whieh has such enormous in- " teresu and great prinoiples involved in ths issue, bat it is unfortunate for the United States that it has by turns affronted nearly every p Government in Europe, and left to itself only the natural sympathies of the peoples for those ? who appear before them as the friends of lib- a erty. There is one thing to be said about civil t< wars?they do not last long. It is probable al that the "exceptioDaiism," if one may use the n word, on whieh the Americans rather pride u themselves, will net prevail in the oase of the n struggle between North and South. Each ef n the oon tending parties, however, believes it is * sure to win. The voioes from the South are, ? to be sure, rather deadened, and those of the i North are swollen and blown out through ? penny trumpets and brass whistles; but there 2 is still reason to think that both are bent on "having it out." And, indeed, the North K must do so, even if separation comes, for there would not and could not be an honorable peace ? if it followed an unavenged defeat in a contest t wherein the victors had annoudced beforehand * that their opponents were destitute of oour- 8 age and manhood. It would not be pos- g sible for the North to livo on terms 0 of decent amity with the South if the leaders of both sides were to agree to a peace tomorrow. The violence and triumphant jubila- f tion of the oonquerors would render it a mere f. armistice ?f short duration. Those who can a see the reconstruction of the great Kepublio in ? the warring elements of the great oonvulsion ? must believe in some new atomic theory, and r in some novel ohemistry of political affinities. s As I passed the State Department the other a day, I observed on the ground great columns n of marble in wooden ooffin-like oases lying by the road side; near the White House there was ' similar food for ruins. Above the unfinished J dome of the Capitol rises a great machinery of h scaffoldfege and leverage, motionless and life- " less, and around the very building in which t Senator and Representative keep high debate, ti lie the vast fragments which at some future 11 day are meant to supplement arch and dome? 0 the ideas of a conception not yet brought into tl being. There are. thefl, two sorts of ruins? ? those of the thing which has been, and those ? of the thing which is not yet, and may never be at all. It was strange to see that all the * effect of the work of years could be produced ? by the materials of work unaccomplished. The q Eublio buildings of Washington are surrounded efore they are completed by the evidences of J, what they must be when they shall have been a< destroyed Before the Kepublio has finished tl its temples the worship of the deities to whom * they are erected is assailed by terrible heresies. * The Capitol can never sec within its dome the !> Senators and Deputies of tho Union, of which ?. it seems no inapt type in its aspiring incompleteness Can any even of the powers most a nienaced and affronted by the Republic rejoice V in its researches among the fragments Cer- ? tainly England has not by word or deed within her borden exhibited a trace of the passions attributed to her by many bitter enemies. {", The reports industriously circulated in some % American journals, that Great Britain has de- ? inanded, or solicited, the establishment of i n free port for the exit of ootton are untrue, e< There is no foundation whatever fer such statements, which are prepared by the same $ Deople who originate the stories ef Admiral Milne s dispatches and views in reference to the blockade. The indifference to foreign c politics which has marked the proceedings of the Congress has been a suitable commentary on the mode in whioh American affairs have been treated in Europe. Mr. Sumner ni was severely rebuked for alluding to the prob- V able effects of the increase of the Morrill Tariff on the sentiments of Franoe and England; as ?i if the Senate regarded such an allusion as a J? confession of weakness or an indecent introduction of an unsuitable element of consider- ft atioR. The bill confiscating the property of bl rebels passed, by a division of 40 to 08, not- c, withstanding the energies and argumentative ai opposition of Mr. Breckinridge and others; tl and I send elsewhere some reflections on the mode in which it will be carried into effect. c< Congress adjourns to-morrow till the 5th of December, unless summoned by the President at an earlier day. Members of Congress are o the first to touch nioe new paper money. On receiving their salaries they wore presented 2^ with $50 in gold aud with $250 in the Treasury m notes ac payment for tho month. They did not like it. The brokers charge 5 per cemt. 11 discount, although the Government pays tf per D cent, interest on the two-year notes, so that n there is a loss to the original holder of 8i por 01 cent, per annum if he submits to the discount. Iheae, however, are very trifling matters in consideration of that which is to oome. There is a rumor of an attack on Cairo. It can only succeed in consequence of incapaoity and oowardice on the part of the defenders.

The climax ia reached by this time, and a regular row is sure to follow. > I 11/" The fortifications around St. Louis are progressing; palllsadn, block-houses and rsrthworks are being constructed on the west and south sides; the north side will be amply fortified by placing a few batteries on the water reservoir, which is In Itself a splendid fortification, almoat 9 Impregnable, from Its height and the lmpoMlbillty of scaling It, and covering the entrance of the Northern Railroad and the Mississippi river. 3 ILT Apropos of the "hot corn" trade, It Is rati- 3 mated that not leas than one thousand colored people are employed In selling boiled corn In the streets of Philadelphia.
