Lieutenant General Charles Ellett, Jr., the same who planned and executed all the celebrated and successful military movements and campaigns of the elder and younger Napoleon, the Duke of Wellington, and other great captains of ancient and modern times, It will be remembered, every member of Congress and scat, t^red over the hotel and doggery gathering plaoea of the city (for free distribution) one of his char, acterlstlc pamphlets, in which he writes down the Commander-in-chief of the Army cf the I nlted States an ass; and thus proves Gen. Scott to have been an aas also, In venturing to differ with him on that point. In this pamphlet, wherein he announces that he has secret plans of bis own for the successful con- I duct of the w?r, it is plain that his bad opinion of ; Major General McClellan's capacity grows out of . the latter's declension lo waste his time in being bored, snd bored, and bored with Ellett's charming schemes concerning matters of which he knows nothing practical, just as he has notori- ? ously bored others in high position for the last twenty-flve years with similar better plans of his own for any and everything of public Interest for bonce Wherever he has been employed this prop^n ity of his Is well known. As well known as the fact that he Is a visionary theorist, whose schemes for "doing everything for everybody' have as little practicability about them?hla famous plan for catchiag and bagging the rain waters in the Alleganies. with which to keep up the navigation of the Ohio In dry weather, for ins'snce?as the other fact that if a man happened to stsnd In kls way, or to refuse to be bored past indurance with his moon struck contraptions, he is most likely to essay an interminable controversy with kite on paper. Thirty years since we were In the engineer department of the same public work with him, and from that day to this have known well, as the profeaalon at large know well, this remarkable propensity of his. It so happened that Gen McClellan came Into vogue a< a leading civil engineer of the West just as he was being played out In that quarter; and It haa recently happened that after some three Interviews, and being bored In each past Indurance with his half demented belief that ke knew precisely how the csmpaign on the Potomac should be conducted, while all but himself were profoundly ignorant upon the subject and careless of the public interest, a member of the General's stuff was compelled at length to Inform him, curtly, that he had no more time at b>*?Ellett's?disposal Those who know Charles Ellett, Jr , civil engineer, on learning tluit facts, will simply wonder that his prolific and really trenchant pen had felled to pamphlet" the General long ere this late day. So much for the causes and animus of his assault His plans for the campaign, as a matter of course, are after the fashion of the plans of the old man who haa for years past bored all In this region who would listen to him, with his model of a flying machine and his speeches in explanation of it. (>r those of the man who proposed to bridge the Atlantic for railroad purposes, with a grand hotel in the middle cn t. and an Xberg chained near the latter for the convenient supply of the pesMogert with julepa?nelther of wblch is a wh't more crsry tbaa k'.s never-to-be-forgotten scheme of catching the rain water falling on the Alleganies or icmewhere else, to be dealt out to raise the water m the Ohio. Ha Is noted as a specious writer; -as specious aa hundreds who are kept la lunatic asylums, and alao aa a man of varied information, which, of late years, has been of no practical use to him, i we apprehend, owing to the Increasing vagaries ' of his mind, a leading one of which seems to "be that no one knows anything about anything, worth knowing, bat himself The brat of the ?oke, however, la, that he knowa everything intuitively. He does not base his plans of the campalga aa G-aeral McClellan neceeaarlly bases Att UP?? nctual detailed knowledge of the situation! euch aa no other man In the world eau have, for lastaoee, but upon surmises, which he takes for granted, (such aa, that the Union army oa this line at the lat of October waa 250,000 strong: Us strength then being some 130,000 ) We ewe an apology to the flier1# readers for devoting so much space to Mr Char lee Ellett, Jr.'s characteristic half-cracked pamphlet; but we deem it proper to explain thus, as briefly as poaalUe, hie appearance before the country In his latest fit of the Firet Captfltn of the Age.

Eight of them first iired, wben Johnaon fell on his coffin, but life not being extinct. th? other four in reserve fired with the required effect. He was ahot at 3 o'clock, p in Previous to hia execution he was sent around to the various encampments of the division to which he belonged seated upou his own colfia in a cart, (the troops being drawn up in line,) and the various regimental bands played a funeral dirge as he Was taken slowly paat. This is the first execution In the army of the Potomac since the commencement of the rebellion. i Perioral ?Capt. Charles Wilkes Is expected to arrive in Waahington this evening The New York sa?'f ' The Mr. Kllet, a civil engineer, who has written a pamphlet censuring Gen McClellan, and censuring all his military operations and intentions, once had a famous controversy with the Heading railroad in which he demonstrated that the railroad could not carry WW,000 tons of coal without such a destruct'on of the rails as to wear out the road, a demonstration which, fortunately for the road and for the coal region, proved, in practical application, to lack the essential elements of certainty." !Iy"From Franck Taylor, we have a spirited translation by Capt.
