Bat General Meclellan haa the aid of no gunboats or other vessels of war. Though in a portion affording the greatest facilities for their cooperation, and selected on account of Its adaptation, tbe army ia fighting under precisely the same disadvantages it would have encountered at Manassas, or In an assault on sn Intrenched position in the rear of Manassas. Our naval force in the nelgt>orln<r waters ia struck with a sudden paralysis. It finds full employment in watching the new sea-monster Into which tbe Merrimar has been transformed. With a hundred iron throats from wtlch It might belch forth fire and thunder, It la a dumbfounded spectator of the unrestated capture of our ships by the dare devil tenaer* ottbe AI err I mac. * * * * It is not for us, who complain that the Merrlmac Is permitted to prowl about Hampton Road* unharmed, to suggest the mean* of capturing or destroying ber. We cannot command the advice and utilize the ingenuity of every officer of the navy, and of every inventive mechanician and skillful seaman in the country. But we can see no reason why a thousand Uvea might not aa well be lost If necessary, In a successful attempt to board and capture her, a* to throw a thousand lives away at Yorktown by reason of the failure of the navy to co-operate with the land forces in the reduction of tkat place. We refuse to believe that some bold feat of seamanship, aided by mechanical or chemical appliances, may not cope successfully with the monster without an enormous sacrifice of life. A nation so Inventive and seamen so daring a* ours must not permit a slnele iron-clad ship to paralyze Mar navy and peril the uceess of a great army which needs its co operation." F#rl Randolph. Telegrams announce that the gallant, wideawake, ever-on tbc-alert Commodore F?otc is en route for Fort Randolph Aa be atarted for that place on Saturday last, it la more than probable he In taefor-, If not in, flf fort now. This Fort Randolph Is on the Mississippi river, near the town ?f Randolph, Tipton county, Tennessee, about Hi mile* above Memphis, |W) below Columbus, and lw0 below Cairo The position ia naturally a strong one. The fer! is a rough, incomplete earthwork, constructed last fall. It is built upon th?* !*erond Chickasaw Blufls, more than 1<*? feet above the river, and Immediately south of I.I..J \r- >* *1? * ? - - ... jmtnu <n, ?ne mwer pan 01 wnich commands the three mouths of (he Hatchee river, a otream (navigable at good stages) that empties into tbc Mississippi pj?ta*>ove the town of Randolph, at the. upper eitge of the bluff*. Thei?e blott-t form natural parapets* for batteries, and at this, point command a view of the Mississippi river for sis miles ea--h way. Our lrou-clad gunboaU. however, by silencing whatever guns may be placed on Island No. 34. might enter the northern mouth of the Hatcble out of the range of Fort Randolph. The town of Rsndolpb. near which the fort stands,consists of half a dozen dilapidated frame bouses, and Is approached in the rear by several good roads, but the country behind it. being full of ravines and gorges, Is capable of being fortified to an almost indefinite extent. The position, however, Is really of no manner of use or benefit, except to dispute the navigation of the river. It hss no railroad communications, and, as an army stationed there would baye to depend on the river cictuaiveiy ior mc transportation cf supplies, It would riot tequire lon^ to cut it off and starve it out. So, If the Ret* Is concentrate at Randolph, the capture of Memphis will be to much easier, if their whole force falls back on Memphis, tbat place cannot hold out. hicnm 4 WRIT AGAII?T SIMOX CAME*<?N?

M r.

Induced no satisfactory response. Mr. Butler asserts that nothing was found among his papers to call In question his loyalty to the Govcrnmtnt. He does not wish to exhibit personal 111 feeling to Mr Cimeron; and, therefore, In simply UsuIpj; n writ, refrained from au arrest and theaccomps nylng necessity, on the part of Mr. Cameron, of giving security.
