Gaweckie states that on the l?th of last month the rebel authorities issnid an order prohibiting all citizens from riding on the rail roads from Tar ions points in the Son th leading to Richmond, in order to facilitate the move ments of troops, which are being hurried up to Richmond in large numbers. Gaweckie and his wife, by bribing the con ductors on the road, were hid away in the cars, and by this means succeeded in reaching Richmond, where they arrived on Wednesday, (yesterday a week) and on the same day pro cured a pas* from Gen. Winder to come North. On the next day, (Thursday) parties who ap plied to Gen. Winder for passes were informed by that official that he was instructed by the War Department to issue no more passes for the present to parties desiring to leave the Confederacy. At the time Gaweckie left Augusta, Ga., which was some two weeks ago, there were no troops stationed at that point. Those that had been quartered there were withdrawn a few days previous and sent to Richmond. When Gaweckie was at Richmond he saw large bedies of troops on their ya v to reinforce Lee, and the arrival of every train lit that place increased their numbers. SUPPOSED SINKING OF A RKUEL TOKPEDO BOAT. Com. S.C. Rowan, of the S. A. B. Squadron, has forwarded to the Navy Department a com munication from Capt. J. De Camp, written on board the U. S. steamer Wabash, ofTCharles ton, S. C., under date of April 10, in which that officer relates the supposed sinking of the re bel torpedo boat which sunk the Housatonic. It appears that on the night of the l-th the deck officer of the Wabash discoveied a dark object about 150 yards distant from that vessel, which corresponded in shape and movements to the torpedo boat. It moved rapidly up against the tide, till about the main mast, and then turned and stood directly for the the ship. The men of the Wabash quickly Tushed to their quarters upon the beat of the gong, and when the supposed torpedo boat was about 50 jards distant, round shot were fired at her from each of the spar deck guns. A round shot is supposed to have struck and sunk her as she was seen no more after the first fire, and the second vollej' struck in the immediate vi cinity of the first. SENTENCED TO BE 31IOT.

Brinton, 1 '?th Pa. volunteers, is president, now in session at Stevensburg, Ya,, has found pri vate John Cnnninnham, 140th New York vol unteers, guilty of desertion, and sentenced him to be shot to death by musketry. The sentence has been approved and will be carried into ef fect on Mohday, the 9th proximo, in the pres ence of so much of the 1st division, 5th army corps, as can be properlv assembled on that day. CON OBB88IOJN A JL.. XXXVIIIra CON?MS8.?FIRST 8BS8ION. TiirBPDAV, April ?>. Skkatb.?Mr. Ten Eyckcanetfup the bill to change and define the boundaries of the judi cial districts of Fast and West Virginia, &c., and it was passed. Mr. Fessenden, from the Committee on Fi nance, reported, with amendments, the House joint resolutiou to increase for sixty days the present duties on foreign Imports 50 per cent., exempting therefrom printing paper. [The amendments rcduce the increase to 33 '3' per cent., and exempt goods on bond from the in crease.] Mr. F. said that the Committee, in conversa tion, thought the 50 per centum increase was too great, and therefore had proposed to amend by reducing t :e increase to per centum. The Committee were of opinion that when the new tariff bill is passed, it will act, on an average, put up the duties higher than 33per cent, and therefore it would be impolitic to make this temporary rate higher than that. He thought it better to put the rates a little below than above what may be the final rates of a new tariff. To put them up 50 per cent and then put them down again on many articles in a short time again, would effest trade very ir regularly. Mr. Sherman said he had disagreed with the committee in their recommendations. The proposed increase of 50 per centum was not on the value of the goods, but on tbe existing du ties. Therefore the House rate would be but l.'i per cent, additional really and the rate of proposed by the committee but 10per cent, additional. Holpk.?The House resolved itself into a Committee of tbe Whole on the state of the Union, (Mr. Washburne in tbe chair,) and re sumed the consideration of the Internal Tax Bill. Mr. Kasson, ol Iowa, offered a substitute for the 151st section, which was agreed to, provid ing it shall not be lawful to record any iustru pient, document or paper, unless the proper stamp shall be affixed, and the record on which the proper stamp is not fixed shall be utterly void and shall not be used a- evidence. The section stricken out proposed a penalty of $50 for the failure to affix stamp. Mr. Farnsworth offered an amendment pro hibiting any person or banking association to issue any notes for circulation unless author ized by act of Congress; otherwise they shall withdraw their circulation in six months, and the said banks shall pay a tax of one-fourth of one per cent, each month on tbe note so issued. Tnis amendment gave rise to detpte. On the one hand it was contended that it would sup press the State banks, and on the other it was maintained that taxation should fall equally on all. On motion of Mr. Holman tbe words "unless authorized by act of Congress." Mr. Fenton appealed to the geutlemau to withdraw bis amendment, as it was calculated to delay action on the tax bill. Mr. Farnsworth could not withdraw it. Why should not banks be taxed, while they taxed everything else. This amendment was adopted. LATE T^6tiRAP.HJC NEWS.

On Monday, March28th, we published In the Star the correspondence between Mayor Wallach and the Government authorities rel ative to the enrollment and draft in this city up to that time. The last letter in that corres pondence was one from Capt. Maynadier, dated March Slat, and which was accompa nied by a tabular statement as to the number fnrnished by this District. We give now the further correspondence as going to show theeffbrts made by the corporate authorities to have the District properly cred ited for men, and the quota reduced in accord ance wlih said adequate credit. To the letter of Cast. Maynadior, above re ferred to, Major Wallach replied as follows: Mayor'* Office, March '29, I&G4.?Hairy E. May' nadier. Esq, Capl. U. 8. A* in charge, *c? Sir: In reply to mv letter of the 21st instant yon omitted to respond to the second interrogatory, as to whether this District is not entitled to ?rjber if so, what credit, on account of exemp tiona from the late draft, and in the tabular statement accompanying that reply yon fix as the number credited to this District therefrom ''AmTtounderstand that number as the actual result or credit from that draft, and all the Dis trict of Columbia is entitled to be credited therefrom, that it covers and embraces as well those who were drawn in the draft and failed to appear and be mustered into service: those who, having been mustered into the service, have subsequently deserted: and those who, though drawn, were exempted from 6erv?oe by an act of Congress, physical debility, alienage, non-residence, age, or other cause, as those who were drawn and mustered into and remain in the service! Respectft^ly, Ri< HARD Wallach. Mayor. To this letter Mayor Wallach received the following reply: War Department*, Provost Marshal it OA\cl, Washington, D. C-, April 1, 1*61.?Bon. R. 1Vol I'jch, Mayor of "Washington? Sir: In reply to vonr letter bl the 29th ult., received yesterday, 1 am directed to say that the number of men credited to the District of Columbia upon the draft of lf?3 (1,183) includes those who were held to service personally, who paid commu tation, and who furnished substitutes. By existing orders and regulations, men wno failed to report, and those who were exempted for the various causes enumerated in the act ot March 3, 1^03, are not credited. I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant, Henry E. Mayxaiher, ' Capt. U. S. A , *c.

Sir I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of yours yes. terday, in which you say, " by existing orders and regulations men who failed to report and those who were exempted for the various causes enumerated In the act of Congress of March 3d, 1863. are not credited." May I be permitted to enquire if exemptions are not admitted, to show at least an inordinate and excessive enrollment the necessity for its reduction and consequently a diminution of the qnotas. Also, if those who tailed to report are classed as deserters, and if subsequently arrested, are not credited ! Respectfully, Rich.ved Wallace, Mayor. War Department, frorost Mar thai General's Offine, Washington, D. C., April N 1661?flow. Richard WaUach, Mayor of Washington?Sir: In reply to your letter of the 2d Inst., received on the 5th, I am directed to say that men who fail to report after being drafted and notified are considered deserters, and are not credited eves if apprehended and punished. In regard to your enquiry as to "whether exemptions are not admitted to show an inor dinate and excessive enrollment." Ac., I can only sav that I am unable to perceive how the exemptions could show that the enrollment was excessive, but rather the reverse: for if a great proportion of those enrolled were ex empted, it would tend to show that the able bodied, and those not entitled to exemption, had not been enrolled. I presume, however, that if it he alleged that the enrollment is excessive and inordinate, the admlssability of proofs of the allegation would be governed by the ordinary rules of evidence. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, Henry E. Maynadier, Capt. U. S. A? in charge ot Enrollment Korean. The following letter was addressed to the Levy Court by Mayor Wallach: Mayor's Office, March 30, 156-1. ?Xathan Sargent, Et'i-, President, dc., Jc?Sir: Be kind enough to inform me if the Levy Court of this District has or intends making any provision for the payment of bounties to volnuteers to till the quotas of the District of Columbia? If this matter has not as yet been before the body over which you preeide, do me the favor to call their attention to it at its next meeting, I and urge the importance of immediate action i in the premises.

Respectfully, Richard Wallach, Mayor. The Adjutaut General's Oflice waa also ad dressed upon the subject in the following terms: Mayor's Office, April .'?, Iftfl ? E. D. Toicus-.-nd, rot. U. S. A., awl Assistant Adjutant General? Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt ?f your letter of the loth ultimo, In whicn you eay, "By order of this (War) De partment all men enlisting or re-enlisting in the regular army irom the District of Ootum bla, or from the different armies in the field, are allowed to select the State, district, town ship, town and ward to which they prefer being credited." "The large State aad local bounties at present offered by some of the Northern States, proves a great inducement for men In the regular army to be credited on their quotas." The enlisted men now at the Washington Arsenal were therefore allowed to select oC their own free will such localities as they prefer being credited to nn<l *r existing orderw and regulations irom tills (War) De partment. The Department, when framing such orders, were, permit meto suggest, not probably mind ful of the fact (bat these men, whether ?liable to the draftpr not, were^nrolledhereastfubj-et to it. aad it . b*a occurred to me that this city should af least be permitted'to have Its enroll- ( ment re4Uoed netbnly by1hfe4feducCtoiU>t siUA* i enlisted men, and all others (nneulisted mtytH in the employment W the Government, and contrabands minted away, who, on aeeoant of ??the luge State and local bounties," hare electedto ealUt elsewhere. > As this city is making extraordinary efforts, pecuniary and otherwise, to fill up 4's quota bv volnuteers, and avoid the approaching draft, I trust it will no trespass to inquire if the city of Washington is not entitled to have its enrollment reduced by deducting therefrom all who, enrolled here, have enlisted else where. Respectfully, Richard Wallach, 'Mayor. Subsequently an interview was had with President Lincoln and Col.

EfH'Am from Carroll Prisoh.?Yester day afternoon, two men confined mi (?arrall prison, named Bernard Richard and Ferdinand Rekowski, made their escape by jumping a fence about sixteen leet high. They are both foreigners, and are notorious bounty jumpers, having Berved lit several regiments each, be sides having served the re belt, alter deserting our service. They were in tbe rebel aervtoa and were taken prisoners at Gettysburg, and sent to Fort Delaware, where they were de tected as deeerterp from our army, and were sent here'. During the last day or two thev were employed in white-washing a new high beard fence, and were using ladders. Yester day, wben the guard turned hla back, they jumped the fence and made their escape.
