Shortly after alighting from hia car| rtage, Major General McCMlan, accompanied by bla entire ataff and an escort of cavalry, reached | the depot and proceeded to take leave of the hero veteran, wboee parting with Gen McClellan waa a very affsctlng one Indeed.

THE/OUmNKY. President Felton, of the Baltimore and Philadelphia Railroad, on being informed of General Scott's intention to proceed this morning to New York, considerately sent hither for his use his (President F.'s) magnificent private car. It wu drawn by a special engine, and left the depot here just In advance of the usual sis a m passenger train. At Baltimore the special train switched off on to the Baltimore and Harrlsburg Railroad, by which route flen. Scott preferred to make the journey, in order to avoid leaving the car until he reached New York. TRX HIW COXXAXDXK-IX-CHIir OF THE CN1TID 8TA1XK ARMY. General McClellan may be said to be Commander-in-Chief of the U. S. Army, by virtue of General Scott's designation. General S. had Ulm placed next to him in rank In the service, that be might be his successor. Never was there more confidence between father and son, than has exi.a.J * * ? i t ? a f ? a At a m # _ i Bt?u weiwcru iiicui uenern bcoii ana major General MeClellan.

We regret to have to stat? that within the laat thrte or four daya (Jen. Scott'a health haa been declinlng faster than usual. He now atanda or walks with great difficulty ind pain. Hence the necesally for bis retirement from the active servlce llat somewhat aooner than waa'anticipated. The prayers aud gratitude of a nation will abide with Him TUK COMBINED LAUD AND NAVAL EXPEDtTlON. It la not to be disguised tuat the combined Union expedition, now on the Atlantic, h*a far more to f&ar from the rewisrkable atorm now raging everywhere upon the coaat, than from any poaalble resistance the rebels oan make to Its operations Thia atorin can hardly fail to dixperse the fleet in all directions for the time being, we apprehend. A SWORD PRESENTATION. To-day, the aword voted to Gen. McClellan by his native city of Philadelphia waa to have been formally presented to him We presume, however. that the remarkably juicy condition of the weatbqt will Interfere with the ceremony. AK3KKAL ll'OTT'S K8TATK C ?? T ER E D We lsarn to day that ahortly before hla retirement, Gen.

It ia probable that Gen Haruey will Immediately be ordered to active duty in the field. He has gone to St. Louis, there to await such order*, with an understanding that they are speedily to be sent to him at that point. WAVY YARD. 0mt . ?* 1 - ? inr rmrnaian runs 1/1? tilotkadr.

Thirty or forty shells were thrown from the Confederate batteries over to our entrencbinenta on the Maryland abore yesterday, hut they did not impede the progress of the work.

St. Lotns, Oct. 30.?Editor of Evening Star I had hoped that long ere this it would have been my agreeable duty to Inform you that we had captured Price and hit army of traitor*, that CUrib Jackaon had been caught and hanged, and that the State bad been cleared of rebela, aa It was when Lyon and Blair bad charge of our affairs, before the "Great Incompetent," as Fremont la now called, assumed tbs command of this department.

The telegraphic reporters have no doubt given you a flaming account of tbla grand coup <le guerre Here where we know the utter insignificance of Spri'iutield as a point of strategic Importance, this last feat of the General | is only laughed at. When Lyon moved on Springfield tbe rebels under Price and MrCulloueh were concentrated there, and their defeat, which could have been then readily accomplished, had Fremont sent timely reinforcements, m w?s urgently requested, would forever have purged Missouri I of the traitors When, however, Z&gonl achieved his much lauded victory there, Price wan entirely out of his reach, and while the grand Union j army of 33,UU0 men were marching over the gravelly hills of Benton and Polk counties to capture an unimportant place, the rebel General was se.

Who, then, will say that Fremont's expedition to Springtleld was a brilliant movement I vv'll give you some facts In relation to Schofleld's expedition to-morrow. Zkta.
