OCR WILITARY BUDGET. how to casr. Tbe N?W York Tribitn* la almost dally giving ths public lessons In tbe art of " carping" In a sneaking way, In its covert assaults upon General McClellan. In most caaes It uses the pens of correspondent* to that end, taking due care to disclaim for Itaeif any possible responsibility for the fi 1?a tn tknkA nnKH? ennMsno* in the Commander-in-Chief it Is thus *preading broadcast, under the plea that they are ststements of other*? not lta own. A day or two since it however did venture to publish a virtual lie editorially to that end, in lta atory alleging that a gentleman la high position danced attendance la the ante-chamber of General McC for three daya, bearing letters from Geo. Wool and the President to him on a matter of great public importance, without being able to obtain the de* sired Interview. Such la the glat of the comnlatit We have to My that General McClellan k'eps o ante-chamber. There are three place* to which persona go who desire to see him on buainnsa: Hla headquarter* aa the Commander-in-Chief, the headquartrra of the Army of the Potomar, and the Oflee of the Adjutant General, U S A. t each of them, thoae aeeking General McClellan always find more or less members of hts staff, Instantly ready to attend to any public business appertaining to his position. He himself is rarely more than once a day in elth*>r place, and then hardly for half an hour: his duties compelling htm to be constantly moving here, there and v everywhere When on? applies to aee him. th? hnain?u f? always attentively beard by a member of Lit caff, who instantly arrange* to bring about the interview ? aoon aa General McClellan can >* found; for he U up the river, perhaps, in the morning, cloeeted with the i'resident at noon, cff with the lowe; division of the army to the afternoon, and, It may be, Inspecting the camp* or picket lines over the river between midnight and daybreak. However, It rarely happens that be is not to bt seen In lesa than a day by any one having real important public bustnew with him **ome how or other nearly all who propose to Introduce a patent ginger pop tof sale In thr camp*, bring letters to Gen McCleilan from dis tingulshed persons and Insist on dubbing thHr affair "important public business " Indeed, the business of nearly all who would claim a portion of his time is such as members of his staff can properly aispoae or without his personal Intervention; or, If not, can bring It to hla notice in a few brief aentencta, when 4< dhpoaei of It in even a briefer reply or order. Now, if any peraon bearing lettera from Gen. Wocl and the 1'realdcnt to Gen. McCMlan, failed to ktc him after waiting three days to that end the public may rely oa It hia buaineaa waa aluiply to get office for aome one?to aell the army patent auckers (fllterers,) to direct the General how to conduct the campaign?a la Ellett?or aomethlng that could be qui?e aa well aettied by a member of the staff, aa by the General in peraon We have rcnntMlitf t??n <* - , ?.iuu uuivni nccumpany perwu really having important public businm. for hours, around the city, to bring them face to thee with the Commander-in-chief, and know that that duty la moat assiduously attended to. BECABtrCL. Instances are almost daily coming to our knowledge wherein soldiers In entruatlng money for their families or frtenda to private persona officers among them, have to mourn its loss. The case of the MOO, the saving of a number of soldier*? stolen by one ex-lieutenant of s Pennsylvania ?? glment from another, ou the cars, is an example In point. Now there Is no earthly necessity for any such occurrence. An agent of Adama A Co's Express ts to be found st every division or perhaps brigsde headquarters, whose receipt for the remittance Involves a positive insurance that it will be safely delivered as directed; and that too at far leas cost to the sender than by any other conceivable means of conveyance involving the necessary insurance. navt tahd There hu been no arrival from the flotilla ?inee oar last report. The King Philip, Mount Washington, and Baltimore are at the yard, the latter being repaired. It Is reported that tbe Penaacola will steam dowa the river again to-day. Small vessels continue to run the blockade dally. Three bargee, with provisions for the army, arrived at Alexandria yeaterday morning, In tow of a steam-tag, having passed the batteries daring the dark hoara of the night before. One of the bargee loet her deck load in Cheaapeake hay, and one of the others lost also a portion of ] her cargo.
