We make thla statement in justice to Mr. Portet whose calculation was made f>r a different suit of armor from that which was finally ordered for the ship, and after the experiments made by tbe Ordnance Board at the fortifications on Jamestown Island The error, which we believe to be of considerably more than two hundred tun*, was discovered when tbe ship was floated, and to that fact is to be attributed her detention in dock Tbe chief ubiect, however, of regret occurred in this connection, for when the ship was shoved up again it appears that she caught upon tbe blocks end received a considerable strain.

Stone was arrested yesterday morning at 3. m , (by a guard under the immediate command of Brig. General 1 Sykes, of the Provost Marshal's force,) and sent to Fort Lafayette by the afternoon train: 1. For misbehavior at the battle of Ball's Bluff. 2. For holding correspondence with the enemy - - - -a it. V.MU tl.11).

For treacherously suffering the enemy to balld a fort or strong work aince the battle of Ball's Bluff, under hts guns, without molestation. 4. For treacherous design to expose bis force to capture and destruction by the enemy, under pretense of orders for a movement from the Commanding General, which had not been given. A coort matial will be speedily ordered We have to add that deep excitement exists In military circle* here concerning t\is arrett, Gen. 9tone being among the rao?t popular officers of the service, with whom hla reputation as a soldier and offlcer baa been certainly aa high as that of My of his compeers His friends believe that these charges are simply the climax of the recent controversy concerning the battle of Ball's Bluff, and emanate from irresponsible and unconfronted witnesses before a secret Congressional committee, at whose bebest his arras* is thought to have been ordered. We have no knowledge as to the authorship of the charges, or the character of the testimony on which they are based, and therefore have no opinion of them to express. The court-martial to try them will doubtless speedily sift them to the bottom, punishing the accused as signally as he will deserve, if found guilty, or branding bis accusers as false ones, to be otherwise summarily punished by the public at large, as they will deserve to be punished, if their grave charges be found to be but another device of personal malice and political-abolitionism combined P. 8.

Should that tribunal acquit him honorably, we scarcely need add, none will be more rejoiced than the Commander-in-Chief. AN rSIRCTH, WITH A PCHPOSK. We have hi^hand reliable authority for contradicting the ftory of the New York Tribune, that General McClellan haa been auperseded aa the General! n-chlef of the whole army of the United State*. Hia relations to the aervice remain and are to continue preciaely auch aa they have been ever since the retirement of General Scott from active aervlee, auch aa General Scott'a were previoualy. The greater vigor and letter ystem of Secretary Stanton's administration of the War Department enables it to relieve Gen. McClelian's immediate staff of some of the routine details of the business appertaining to bis position of General-inChief of the whole army, and upon the fact that his s'ttr has been slightly so relieved the Tribvnt't y ? a in. ? ? ? - jai!*rnuoa-wun-B-purpose-Der.ina-jt, u bassd. That purpose Is evidently to create confusion and generate hesitation, wsnt of conflAeace and embarrassment* that may possibly derange Gen.

They have allowed themselves to be defied by the \ ankee government with an Insolence and arrogance which could hardly have been expected in such haughty Powers." The writer then go<* on to speak of the Illegal federal blockade of the Southern porta, tbua preventing the f*?uth from obtaining supplies of arms, while the North is permitted to draw unlimited quantities from Europe. Heaays"Give us thesame supply of theseuinnitlons with oar eaemv and we Will engage lu throe months to change tne whole aspect of the war; Instead of standing on the defensive we should carry the war into Africa."

A squadron cf fooi soldiers were alio discovered on the Loudoun side of the Shen andoab, behind the abutment of the burnt bridge, but beyond the ranjjf* ' f our rides. The building! whicu had concealed the party of murderers from view, and shielded them from the ritlemen. had !on^ beei th?> rendeiYous, day and nli^ht, of the enemy's scouting parties, who were thus enabled to approach unseen and tlr? upon our pickets. Tbelr destruction had heretofore been contemplated, but desisted from out of consideration of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company, who had a considerable Investment mrrpin i;ni. ueary, However, ordered their Immediate d<?8trnction by tire, and falling to ignite them by hells, Maj. Tyndale detached Lieut. Greenwalt, of comtnny F, <Ji-tb Pennsylvania, with ten men, to proceed to the other side and set fire to tbetn, which they speedily accomplished, bringing back several trophies dropped In hasty retreat by the niurdering party?among which was a spleudid Minie musket, leaded but not capped. The bouses fired were the Wager, Gait and Railroad Hotels, the Baltimore and Ohio railroad depot, the Winchester railroad depot, Welch's tore, the telegraph office,cndtbedwelling bor.set of Mrs. Wager, Mrs. Darin. Mr*. Kllen Chambers, Geo. Chambers and Wm. J Stevens, none of which were occupied. Ttie destruction of this block now gives our Ttlrlrpld nifin ? r 41 "* f j IU^U ?? vicw in me toenaildoali road from Charleatown, atid will enable our men to protect tbe village In daylight from any rlurdf stlne occupancy by* the enemy's furce*. a* well as give them ;i warm reception if they should attempt to advance in force by their favorite and hitherto protected and concealed route. The confligration was msgnllicent. the volume of smoke at d Came almost concealing tbe surrounding mountain heights and enveloping the doomtd town. Occasionally a concealed shell or gun would explode in the burning buildings, and slve a temporary relief to our cannoneers and riflemen by a hope that they were the gum of an approaching enemy. i iie once populous town of Harper'a Ferry now contains but seven families?all g04>d Unionists? numbering perhaps forty aouls ?ll told. Daring tbe shelling these, an has long been customary, bung out the white fla^s, and their domiclia were pw<itw<i by onr runnAtii^rc When your correspondent ascended the Maryland Heights in the afternoon, none of the Confederates were visible, excep' a squad of cavalry stre'ehed across tLe road at Smallwood'a woods, behind Bolivar; nor were more thsn a dozen cltliena aeen in tLe three village? of Harper's Ferry, Camptown. ai.d Bolivar for several houra. Squads of the enemy's cavalry were occasionally seen on the road near Charlestown, but their numbers did not indicate any important movement. At live p m., three of the enemy's cavalry came down the Charlestown road, and dismounting entered the Ferry. A few moments later one made h!a appearanre, with a llag of truce, oa a platform car, standing directly over tbe landing arch where Lis uasocUte* had committed murder in the morniiio t tii? * B, *?- ?>? ,<ui rmoirm neia sacred in war. evtn by the most barbarous, d?*bas?d nations of earth. Immediately 200 rucked Kntltlds covered his lorm, and two 12-pounders, loaded with Scrit/er's patent cartridges, (railroad spikes ?iid iron alu^s,) were trained to bear upon the same spot 'I he men were almost insane to revenge the death of their late coinri.de, but were prevented by a gesture from Col. Geary. The bearer of the Hag came from Charlestown, and wa?i sent to request that the body of young Carlisle, a deceas?a Maryland volunteer in the disunion ranks, might be sent ov?r for inierment o-day. The Colonel responded that Maryland soil was no tit rest'.ng place for the bodies of traitors, and as the ll^g of truce had been violated in the morning, that (fame could not be played on him twice in one day The Hag responded that the act of the morning wes unauthorlred, and would be punished. Col. Geary responded that the Urst shi t was fired by the officer in command. and that he had no confidence In anv such assertion. " I will give you live minutes,raid the Colonel, "to get beyond the reach of my guns. 1 have no more to ray." The bearer of the Hag, and his companions, were suddenly on the Charlestown road, and promptly at the expire* tion of the five minutes, one of the 12-poundera Al ? J uia^uargeu us iron messengers in the line of tbelr retreat. It wa>? subsequently ascertained that tbe bearer* of the flag weie Baylor's men, that It vat Baylor who tired the first shot at Rohr, and tbe flag man teas disguised and painted as a negro, to decoy our boat into the trap. Some time ago Rohr was driven from Harpei'a Feny (where Le owned a handsome property and was carrying on a flourishing carriage manufacturing bu*iner<) on account of Lis fidelity to the Union. Hit property was destroyed and confiscated, and he, after securing tbe retreat of hla wife to this *ld?\ devoted his whole time to the Government in designating the secession!?ts from tbe Union people who sought to cross into Maryland. \ He was highly esteemed and honored by all ogr iifllcers His widow, who is uow destitute, ia a Pennsylvania lady, and deserves the consideration of the Government and Union people. Durine the mornins two nf ? ? ??"?? ?? killed outright by onr (bells, and others were grounded. Dorirgthe conflagration, a man, In citizen's iress, was set-n walking to and fro between the abutment of the Shenandoah bridge and near the bouse of tbe widow Stipes. After witnessing his motions for sometime, Ool Geary ordered a squad of his sharpshooters to try tbe range upon him? the distance being not less than 1.200 yards At the tint volley the fellow ran up the road and fell. He affected to ri?e and fall again. A cloud of rmnkf morn unfurl 1 v hlH him J ?* - j a.?i??HIIVUI TICW, aiiu. WQfn it rose, he vrti nowhere to be seen. Near where tie fell a flsMie In the rorks was discovered, and Doat with aix men crowed, and went up the road :t a double-quick. Arriving at the rock the man was discoved unbanned, aniioly ensconsed In the ock, and the squad, with their prisoner, returned to the boat at the same pace. On being Interrogated he stated he belonged to he Virginia mliltU at Leesburg, and name up to /isit an uncle. Col. Ueary believing him to be a ioy, thought he had better be turned over to Uncle Sam. He gave his same as Henry Demony. V deserter from Leeaburg, named Bamuel T. 3rlm, previously found his way to the river oppoilte Sandy Hook and wait ferried over. Yesterday morning a considerable body of foot ind mounted were discovered on the road at the sst ?me or i<eudonn Heights, bat they retreated without coming into range. ??^????????? gKjv x-v OYSTERSj-OYSTKRS.^^ (?yjf Great Boieatiiio linprove-^SvI^P sent IB i*rKAM!Nb and ? roasting oyster*. >y whioh the eatire flavor and use of the Oyste retained.
