To ik* Editor if iAs Star?Sir: An article in yoar journal of yesterday speaks of a certain despatch, purporting to have been sent by General 9toae to Coloael Baker, and pnbliahed In the Ckromiei* of Sunday, as a "sweeping forgery.*1 Perhaps as I waa the canse of the publication of this despatch In the Chromirlt, it la only jnst to that newspaper and to myself to say that 1 ob tained It at Conrad's Ferry, and from a reliable source. It was prlated from no desire to defend Coloael Baker, or to embarrass General Stoae, but In gsad faith and as a piece of new*?Just as 1 would have printed the announcement of a victory of Oeaeral Stone, or the defeat of General Beauregard. f had no doubt of Its authenticity at the time, and I must say that I have little doubt now. I am convinced that surh a dispatch was sent to Coloael Baker, that it cam*? through the usual source of military communication, and that it wu regarded as the Instruction of a commanding oflrer But If, as you assert, "General Stone has telegraphed to Gen. McClellan's headquarters that It Is a sweeping forgery and nothing else." that eettlea the matter aud leaves me nothing more to say. I quite agree with you In denouncing "the atrocity of forging rrch a piper, even to screen the mistake of a gallant dead offcer." but you will certainly adiuit that the "atrocity'' must be charged to those who may bave bad the motive aad the opportunity for tampering with military operations, aad not to a disinterested newspaper correspondent. I am, sir, with great respect, your obedient servant, John R Yocho, Special correspondent Phlla. Press "Washington, Oct 29, 1M1 Sote.? '.No one will attribute the authorship of this atrocious forgery to tbe correspondent of tbe frets, bet he must certainly see the propriety of stating more definitely the source from wnence he obtained tUe forged dispatch, In order that tbe responsibility for the deed shall be placed where If properly belongs.??<4.

Editor Star: At 10 o'clock to-day tbe beautiful flaz presented to tbe Union Aaaoclatlon by the Union ladlea of this city, waa thrown to the breeze am!d the hearty cheer* of a large concourae of citizens, assembled for the occasion. Col. McLean, of tbe Cameron Guard*, (Pennaylvanla 99th regiment.) kindly gave the aervlcea of tbe band of the regiment to aid In the ceremoniea, who played "Hail Columbia" on arriving at tbe flag-staff, when after a abort and patriotic addreaa frcm S Ferguson Beach, Esq , the hag was run up. Nine cheer* were then given by tboae aoerr.bled, after which the band played "The Star Spangled Banner/' and proceeded to King street, to celebrate the raising of a large and handsome flag by Air Bennett, at his daguerreotype gallery. Entire confidence In the Union Is manifesting Itself here dally; everything 1* quiet in and around this city I leara from the captain of a wood craft that all tbe vessels have passed the so-called blockade, and that the George Page came across the river on Tuesday last to Chirkamuxen Creek; that she Lai but two guns mounted on her, one at each end; and that she appeared te have about fifty men on board; and that tbe Page and tbe Fairfax are lying just inside the mouth of Quantico Creek. He further Informed me that uot a single shell thrown by the rebels on to tbe Maryland shore had exploded, except the one that some of our people waa experimenting with, when several ol them were Injured. .He thinks a few guns In position at Budd's Ferry could soon destroy the Page and Fairfax as they now lay. The Republican's Aspersion upon the Star. We see nothing whatever In the Republican'j rejoinder of thia morning to tbe Star's reply to its late aspersion, requiring further notice frcm us. Tbe whole subject matter of the Ball's Bluff affa r will shortly be ventilated lu an official report, which will doubtless vindicate tbe military reputation of General Stone far more effectively than tkut could be done by our pen. Our object waa, imply, to prevent the facts and conclusion* of that report from being forestalled by the Minister publications made to destroy, In advance, its effect uj?on public opluion Believing thai we have accomplished that object, we have no controversy of oar own involved, to pursue.

The President, who keeps his own counsels, and the bright-eyed little Secretary of War, who does not whisper a word of the business of bis office even to the partridges he eats f..r dinner, may know, hut all others are ignorant. That the army will retire as far as the old line of tbelr lntrencbments at Manasaaa Junction, I have learned upon good authority. Meanwhile the town is wild with rumors. The Yankees, we are told, are moving in a strong column, under Gen Banks, upon Harper'* Ferry. Tn?re was a report to-day that they were landing at U bina, on the Rappahannock Also, thst another heavy attack waa about to be attempted on the Evansport battery, and that an efl'ort would be made to put troops aahore to take It 1 n the rear. In addition to this, great activities are reported at Fortress Monroe A large number of horses and sixty or seventy rifled cannon, have been received i there within a few days It Is Impossible to get at the trnth of any one of theae rumors Probably there is just enough of foundation for them to justify us In believing that several feints will be ' made in the F.iat, while a powerful army will be thrown into Kentucky. The great struggle will be In that State for the present If I might venture to suggest the reason for the backwnrd move1 ment in Fairfax, I should say It was designed to release a considerable portion of Johnson's army f ?r operation in another quarter, leaving Beanregard's command to defend the border against an advance of the Yankees, which It could success1 fully do, should the odds be ten to one against i the Yankees.

There has been a considerable run on the Post Office depsrtment for stamps since the delivery of them commenced, and the supply has been exhausted for the time, but they will be abundant again In a few days. The stamp is really quite a good one, though somewhat defective in adhesive quality, and Inconvenient in shee's from not having been perforated with diving lines for tearing them apart. This omission will create a demand for scissors, and there will probably be a rise in the latter article. A large amount of real property has been entered on the books of the receiver for sequestration in the county of Albemarle, belonging to two sons aad a daughter of Hon. \Vm C.

I The New Orleans Crescent of the 14th contains t a long account of the late attack on the Federal fleet We make a few extracts: On Friday night about 12 o'clock the little fleet | left the forts in the following order: The Manasaas leading the way, with orders to go right in among the fleet, and run down the first vessel she could get at, sending up a rocket at the instant { she made an attack Then came the Tuscarora, and the tow boat Watson with the five barges in < tow; those bad orders to set fire to#the barges the moment they seen the rocket from' the Mana*sas After these were the Calhoun. Ivy, McRea and Jackson, and last was the launch, bringing up the rear The tow boat Watson was under the coini mind of Lieut. Aveltte. The night was intensely dark, and it wasalmoet Impossible to see twenty yards ahead The Mam?sas put on a heavy head of steam, and dashed on in the direction where it was thought the enemy were lying. Suddenly a large snip was discovered only about a length ahead, and before Lieut Warley could have time to fire the signal rocket, Into her they went, with an awful crash An appalling shriek was heard on board of the doomed sLip. and the iron steamer was borne off by the current, and found herself In the midst of tbe enemv's fleet The signal rocket was tired, 1 the enemy beat to quarters, and a perfect storm of Iron ball was falling upon and around the Manasj sas, tbe machinery of which, it was soon dlscov, | ered by the commander, bad In some manner beI come deranged. This was most inopportune and j perilous; and the Richmond, soon observing that I something was wrong, began playing upon her with all the power of ber guns Lieut Warley j found that only one engine would work, tnd , I with that he began working bis wav out of reach, j towards shore; but the shot fell thick and fast I around and upon the "old turtle," and ber fate eemed bunging on a Lair, when the brave little I Tuscarora and the Watson came up with the fl"c I barges on fire, and soon cut them adrift on the | stream. I Com Holllns did not know what had been the I result of the firing, neither did the test of the J commanding officets. It was too dark to make j observations, and he did not wish to risk signals. So daylight was watted for impatiently. It came | at last, and presented the following picture : Tbe I enemy, some miles down, heeling it for the open . j sea by way of the Soutbwext l'asti, with one of , I their ships sunk on the middle ground. The I Manassas close in shore, among the willows, concealed as well as possible; U?

They soon came within range, and a I beivy cannonaJc beta# The sunken ship seemed | to be In a very bad fix, and she was nearly on her ! . I beam ends The Richmond drew up on the outI side and protected ber with her full broadside. I The other vessels of the enemy soon got aground, | but near by, and in a great measure protected by ! | tbe Richmond's guns | , | Our ileet pitched shot and shell Into tbem with i [ vengeance, and our Informant tells us that he saw , at least two shots hit the Richmond, which were ' I fl red from the Tuscarora, and two or three i. om the ' | Ivy The ahoU from tbe Yankees were all badly ? ] alined, and not one touched any of our vessels, I though over 500 passed all around tbem After I continuing tbe cannonade until about 8 o'clock, . I Com Holllns concluded that the sport did not pay . for the powder, and feeling that he bad won | glory enough for one day, and that the enemy were lo a fix that It would take them some time | to i/et out of, he ordered his fleet back to town. ' I The Manassas struck tbe vessel which she ran , ] into, near tbe bow, &nd cut Into her upwards of twenty feet, if we may judge from the fact that ' splinters, copper and nails, were found in the ; cracks of the iron on her sides to at least that dls> tance She drew off from the collision without j J trouble, though she undoubtedly twisted her I prow badly when swayed to one side by tbe curI rent, for it Is found broken and bent to one side, j ' J The balls which struck her bounded off wl'bout | affecting any damage, except in one case, when a f I ball hit on tbe bluff of the bow and made an . I ugly, though not serious, dent in the iron. It is I said that tbe balls from tbe Richmond'* broad' I aide fell upon her like hall upon a house top, for I ] a while, but to-day nothing of this can be seen ( excepting the dent above-mentioned Tbe acclII dent which happened to her machinery disabled t ber propeller, and she was, consequently almost , unmanageable, yet it was not of a nature to re. quire more than a day or two to repair She went I into dock yesterday afternoon at Algiers.
