So this committee, too, ended their " investigation" *bout as wise as wbeathey commenced it. It la fortunate that tbe officers questioned remeajbered the obligations resting upon them to abstain from communicating military Information to nay one, except by permiaalon or orders from their auperior In command; a military offence evsrely punished under the rules of the service Otherwise, the labors of tbla laat mentioned Ccrigreasional Investigating Committee might result % la another Bull Run affhir, which, all the world know, waa for tbe most part tbe result of persistent Interference cf members of Congress to regulate the campaign of Gen.

Affairs at Richmond and Centrevllle. j [Sp^.ial Correspondence of Charleston Courier ] Richmond, Dec. 7, 1-61 ?From Centrevllle we bear this morning that a light Is imminent. "Wolf" again.

Col Kemper, Speaker of the House of Delegatex, and Chief Quartermaster Cabell, have hurried off to Manassas, in consequence of private news which, it is said, they hnve received that a battle 'sat hand Fer tontm, all the newspaper correspondents are In town, and say that the talk of a tight is all bosh. The pinch of the war la certainly upon us, snd, as vou remark, the next two months will decide whether the strujrirle is to he a Innir n? ihnrt nn? 1 kv It will be *bort. and that we will win. The M issouri delegation found the President Inflexible in bit determination to make Col. Heth j a major gene'al. He said there was no other way of reconciling Price and McCulloagb than by giving tbem a rommon head; neither Johnston, Beauregard nor Lee could be spared; and Hetb | came with tbe highest recommendations " A repeal of our tariff law for a definite period, (five year*,) and a proclamation of free trade with all the world for the time designated, would accomplish more towards the opening of our porta than all (fee navies of tbe other continent." This Is the language cX the Examiner this morning.

Interesting Particular* By the Niagara, we received a brief announcement that Prlnee Albert wu dxed. The melancholy event t/>ok place at about eleven o'clock on the night of the 14tb of December, and canted % most profound sensation throughout England The London Time* records the last moment* of his Royal Highness: "The Prince was taken 111 some twelve day* since. Symptoms of fever, accompanied by a general Indisposition, made their sppearaaee For some days the complaint was not considered to be serious, but from the early part of last week the medical men In Attendance and the persons about the Court began to feel anxious. It was not till Wednc*day~(the lltb) when the fever gained bead, and the patient waa much weakened, that tbe flrft bulletin wn* lnued, and even then It waa atated tbat tbe aymptoma were not nnfkv* orable.

No material change took place on Tburaday. and on Friday the Queen took a drive with no Idea of danger. When ahe returned, the patient's extremltlea were cold, and from that tiaM he waa in thegreateet danger. "On Friday evening he waa not expected to aurvive the night, and tbe Prince of Wale* waa telegraphed for. All night the Prince continued err ill.

Tbe Times says that the Queen has borne her loss with exemplary resignation and a composure which, under ao terrible a bereavement, could not have been anticipated When the first passionate burat of grief was over, her Moj*>sty called her children around her, and, with a calmness which gives proof of great natural energy, addressed them In solemn and affectionate terms Her Majesty declared to her famllv that, though she felt crushed by the loss of one who had been her companion through life, she knew how much was expected of her, and she accordingly called on her children to give her their aasi&tance, in order that she might do ber duty to them and to the country But one sentiment was apparent throughout England?that of deep sympathy for tbe Queen and regret for the death of ?ne so universally respected The strongest euloglums were passed upon the deceased Prince by tbe Press and tbe public Ureat interest was felt In tb? situation of the Queen, and bulletins were Issued from time to time showing that although her Majesty was overwhelmed with grief, she bore the bereavement with calmness, and had not suffered In health TV* 1 a Ut \(uccii ouu vur ruy ai CUHUrCll Wfrf VO 1CHV5 Windsor Castle for Osborne on the 18th The funeral of the Prince would take place on Monday, the 23d In accordance with the custom uiuallv followed of late years, the funeral would not be a state one, nor would the remains lie In state The Prince of Wale* was to act as chief mourner, supportel by the Duke of Cambridge and by the Crown Prince of Prussia.

The Crown Princess of Prussia (the Princess Royal of England) was unable to visit her mother from Ill-health, but the Crown Prince was expected A feeling of gloam prevailed throughout England, and a general mourning was expected.

It Is stated that at least one-third of the slaves of Loudon county have made their escape, and some from Fairfax, Fauquier and Culpeper oscaalonally turn up la this vicinity This morning some ten or twelve, and four or five white refugees, were dispatched by cars to Washington. The white refugees represent that If our forces were to enter Loudoun, the white population now there, almost to a man, wonld gladly renew their allegiance to the Union. At last accounts the Confederate force at L*mburjf had been considerably aaament/d. The militia, however, showed a great disinclination to f ght, and were put to work on new fortifications, tbe precise location of which is not given, but Is probably well known to our military authorities. The number of troops In and about X^Msburg ia estimated at 6.G0U, including the militia. Advices from Dam No 3 this owning Inform us that the Confederates made a demonstration there yesterday, and fired several shot and shell at tbe dam and our men from their 1'2-pounder rifled gun, doing no damage. On Sunday they showed themselves at Falling Waters A portion of Col Leonard's command, stationed there, laid upon their arms all night, but discovered no enemy in the morning While the enemy of late have only shown one gun, (the 12-piuna Parrott gun.) ttls known that they have in the vicinity of Martlnsburg a foil field battery, which Is probably masked In some plac" where they anticl pate we are to paas, should an advance be made.

The Maryland public are cautioned against the excnange or purchase of horses in the handi of persons unknown to tbrm, as horse-steeling by d^serteri and retired teamsters has been prevalent of late.

Por all but dress, the white petlcuat baa been discarded for one of alpaca; and these hive a great advantage over the linen or cotton ones, inasmuch as ttiev are lighter, and do not lose their stiffness. Of course, it is necessary that If the dress be a grenadine, barege, or other clear texture, the petticoat must be of the same.
