The following officers have been tried by coart-martials now in session within the lines of the Army of the Potomac : UsnCGolonel Gkieon Clark, lWth Pennsyl vania volunteers, fonnd gnilty of violating the 16th article of war, and sentenced to be cash, iered.

James Lee, 13th Pennsylvania volunteers, guilty of disobedience of orders and raising a false alarm In camp, sentenced to be dismissed the service. The sentences in the cases of the above named officers have been approved, and their dismissal from the military service will date from the 25th instant. NOT PICKETS BUT CHICKEN THIEVES. It was telegraphed North, a day or two ago, that a picket near Fort Ethan Allen, was shot at on Tuesday night by guerrillas; but Union men from that section deny that any guerrillas have been about there for a long while. The soldier shot at was not at the time on his post of duty, but was engaged in robbing a hen roost?an aot of plunder to which residents in that neighborhood have ot late been grievously aubjected by soldiers, who sent out for picket duty, leave their posts to make these unlaw ful foraging expeditions. Loyal citizens suffer alike in this respect; and they say that if tbe officers in charge of pickets would not wink so veTy hard when such practices are going on right under their ?yes, there would be no occasion to burden the telegraph with reports of pickets being fired on in close pro ximity to our lorts. Rciuocb Importations?It will be seen in the Senate proceedingof yesterday that the im portant joint resolution which originatsdin the House.of Representatives has been adopted, and when signed by the President it will have the force of law. The resolution declares "that until the end of sixty days from the passage of this resolution, fifty per centum of the rates of duties and imposts now Imposed by law on all goods, wares, merchandise, and articles im inapos'ts now charged on the importation of such articles: Provided, that printing paper, ? unsized, used for books and newspapers ex clusively, shall be exempt trom the operation of this resolution." It is understood that this temporary resolu tion is adopted in order to check the ruinous rate of importations which has tor sometime been in progress, while Congress is engaged In the work of revising the tariff. The u. S. Two Hcn>rkd Million Five Pxr Omit. Loan.?Elsewhere will be found an advertisement of the 10-40 bonds, which just now afford the most favorable investment before the public. The loan is limited te two hundred millions, and, being payable, princi pal and interest, in gold, (on five per cent gold interest, equal to 7* orS per cent. In currency,) 16 being subscribed for by the people at a rate promising to speedily absorb the wholeamount of the loan. It is a noteworthy fact that the entire public debt of tbe United States is not more than one-fourth of the public debt of Great Britain at the conclusion ol her great wars in 18*6, in proportion to the property of the two countries; and also that when the 10-40 bonds are due, with our present ratio of In crease of national wealth, double our present national debt wonld not be a charge of five per cent, on the property of the country.

(By Independent Line.] Nxw York, April 29,-The Timet has a Washington "special" dispatch that the reason for the withdrawal of the French ships is the inopportu neness of the time of their visit. The Times says the President has received a dispatch from Gen. Butler that the rebel forces are withdrawing from North Carolina to rein force Lee. It is now generally understood that Lee will endeavor to fight without leaving his intrench ments. The Timet's dispatch confirms the Triburu't dispatch about Banks's disaster?a letter from Admiral Porter pronounces it so. Besidesover thirty pieces of artillery, large quantity of small arms, several hundred wagons, first class gunboat Eastport, and nearly 4,000 pris oners captured. Paymaster's safe, containing Si.coo,oco greenbacks, captured. Gens. Stone and I ranklin are to be court-martialed. REBEL TROOPS HIRRYIKG TO RICH MOND. BEAUREGARD EN ROUTE TIIEBE. PANIC IN RICHMOND.

These Bondsare issued under the Act of Congre" of March 8th. 13*4, which provides that *11 Bond* issued under this Act shall be EXEMPT FROM TAXATION by or under any State er municipal authority. Subscriptions to these Bonds are re ceived in United States notes or notes of Nation*' Banks. They are TO BE REDEEMED IN COIN, at the pleasure of the Government, at any period net less than ten nor morttkan forty years from their date, and until their redemption FIVE PF.R CENT, INTEREST WILL BE PAID IN COIN, on Bonds of not over sne hundred dollars annualtf and on *11 other Bonds semi annually. The in terest is payable on the first days of March an I Seotatnlier in aaeh rear: Registered Bonds are recorded on the Books of the United States Treasurer, and can be trans ferred only on the owner's order. Coupon Bond} are payable to bearer, and are more convenient for Commercial uses. Subscribera to this loan will have the option of having their Bonds draw Interest from March 1st, by paying the accrued interest in coin?{or in Uni ted States notes, or the notes of National Bank), adding fifty per cent, for premium,) or receive them drawing intarest from the date of subscrip tion and deposit. As these Bonds are exempt from municipal or State taxation, their value Is increased from one to three per cent, per annum, according to the rate of tax levies in various parts of the country. At the present rate of premium on gold they pay over eight per cent, interest in currency, and are of equal convenience as a permanent or temporary investment. It is believed that no securities ofTer so great inducements to lenders as the various descrip tions of U. S. Bonds. In all other forms of in debtedness, the faith or ability of private parties or stock companies or separate communities only is pledged for payment, while for the debts of the United States the whole property of the country is Uolden to secure the payment of both principal and interest in coin. These Bonds may be subscribed for in sums from $50 up to any magnitude, on the same terms, and are thus made equally available to the smallest lender and the largest capitalist. They can be converted into money at any moment, and the holder will have the benefit of the interest. The fact that all duties on imports are payabte in specie furnishes a fund for like payment of in terest on all Government Bonds largely in excess 1 of the wants of the treasury for this purpose. Instructions to the National Banks acting as lean agents were not issued from the United State-; Treasury until March 2S, but in the first three weeks of April the subscriptions have average! more than TEN MILLIONS A WEEK. Subscriptions will be received by the Treasurer Of the United States at Washington, and the Assist ant Treasurers *t New York, Boston, and Philadel phia, and by the FIRST NATIONAL BANK OP WASHINGTON, FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF BALTIMORE, FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF PHILADELPHIA, and by all National Ranks which are depositaries of public money. All respectable banks and bank ers throughout the country will furnish further information on application, and afford every fa cility to subscribers. apZMw WANTS.

La., April 11, of the condition of the fleet at thM point 911 b'? return down river after the repulse of the land expe dition, says: ?I found the fleet at Grand Ecore somewhat In an unpleasant situation, two ot them being above the bar, and not likely to get away again this season, unless there is a rise of a foot. I could not provide against this when over a hundred miles up the river. If nature does not change her laws there will no doubt be Arise of water; but there was one year, 184ti, when there was no rise in the Red river, and it may happen again. The rebels are cutting off the supply by diverting different sources of water into other channels, ail of which would have been stopped had our army arrived as far as Shreveport." MOSEBY SENDS A MESSAGE TO PRESIDENT LINCOLN AND GOVERNOR PIKRPONT. About ten days ago a lady, a resident of Fairfax county, whose husband is a refugee, visited the upper part of the eounty to carry o)T some stores belonging to her, and while there the rebel guerrilla Colonel Moseby rode up, and after some preliminary conversation as to her business, and withoutany attempt to molest her, asked her for a pair of scissors, and cut ting off a lock of his hair handed it to her and told her to present it to President Lincoln, and also to tell the President that he (Moseby) would be dowa shortly to maue his personal acquaintance. He further requested her to go to Alexandria and see Gov. Pierpont, and say to the Governor that he (Moseby) was obliged to him for liberating the negroes of Virginia, and that he (M.) had been working for that same object for a number of years. Moseby requested Pierpont to be informed also that he would vUit him in the course of two or three weeks, but he did not know how agreeable the visit might prove. NAVY-YARD-DEPARTURE OF.

Blair.?The President sent to the House yesterday a reply to the res olution of iheHou^e in reference to the position in the military service of F. P. Blair, jr., stating that prior to and at the commencement of the present session of Congress Robert Schenck, of Ohio, and F. P. Blair, jr., of Missouri, were in the military service holding commissions as Major Generals. That before the meeting of Congress General Schenck tendered his resig nation, in order to enable him to take his seat as a Representative, but that it was understood that if during the session he should desire to recall his resignation, he should be allowed to do so, and be restored to his rank as before. That Blair was engaged in active service and did not reach the Capitol until tu month after the session bad commenced, and that he claimed the same privilege. That recently he has recalled his resignation and has been assigned to a command; and that he, the President, believed that it was competent for him to so restore him without a re-appointment.

PRICK OF G0LD. [By the Peopled Line.] Nbw York, April 2#?10 a. m.?Gold, 79*; 11 a m.,80Xa?>X. XXXTIIITB OON6BMS.?TIMT BJM8IOK. Friday, April 29. . Srnatb.?Mr. Hendricks oalled us his reso lution instructing the Committee on printing to bring in a resolution for printing 50# copies, tor the use of the Senate, of the report of the com mission of Which Major General McDowell was thshead, appointed to examine into cotton operations and frauds in the Western Depart ment, together with the evidence taken by said commission. Mr. Henderson eald that ho had seen letters in the past few days from the Red river, say ing that our defeat there wee on account of ?peculations. The cavalry in advance on that occasion, numbering 3.000, bad 265 wagons, which we know bad confused and obstructed the whole action, and brought disaster. He could not see what that number of cavalry wanted with <65 wagons for transportation, unites it was to gather up the products of the country. Mr. Conness said he desired to state on what he considered the best of authority that these wagons were part of the regular train of that army, and whatever might be the defects of the generalship which brought them there, the statement that Vney were intended to bring in cotton wag not correct. Dir. Henderson said he made no charge ot himself but it was singular that disaster fol lowed iuese statements, had a letter from near Grand Ecore, dated four da/3 before the battle, alleging a conflictof authority between Qen. Banks and Admiral Porter, and stating that the latter was seizing cotton on land as naval prize, and predicting disaster. These predictions, results had seemed to confirm?at least the public mind seemed to so regard it. He hoped the statements were incorrect, and if there had been no disagreement between Ad miral Porter and Gen Banks, let it be known. Mr. Oomiesa declared the statement a cruel and base slander upon Admiral Porter. He had the very highest authority for saying this. Mr. Henderson was glad the gentleman could so authoritatively deny tne state ment, which was only newspaper authority. He himself ya* a personal acquaintance of Admiral Porter, ana thought highly of him. But these statements were having their effect upon the public mind, and it should be en lightened. The resolution was then adopted as amended. Hors*.?Mr. McClnrg, of Missouri, rose to a personal explanation in relation to the re port of the select committee on the charges against F. B. Blair. He charged that the "mil itary member'' had the audacity to assail the radical members of that State by inserting in his printed speech personal matters he never uttered on this floor. He {Mr McClurg) main tained that the evidence snowed that the ??mili tary member" was implicated in the liquor speculation and that there was prima fade evidence that somebody violated the laws. He replied 'at length to the recent speech of Mr. Blair; charging that the ?military member" was vulnerable not only in his heel but ail over his body; and, after the " military mem ber's" attack upon him, was It to be expected be should remain silent 1 He charged that Mr. Blair was animated by a vindictive. Mr. Schenck, from the Committee on Military Affairs, reported back the Senate bill to equal ize and increase the pay of the soldiers. He will call it up at an early day. Mr. Hirby, of California, replied to some re marks of Mr. Blair, denying that any Treasury agents were implicated in frauds. Mr. Clay, of Ky., gave his views. LATE TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. FROM RED RIVER.

Osborn, entered a store where the Colonel sitting and struck him on thi bead with a weight, breaking his skull, and in dicting a mortal wound. The murderers have not yet been arrested. Senator Wade and Representative Gooch leave for the East to-morrow. THE FORT PILLOW AFFAIR. MKMPHie, April 9S. ? The Committee on Conduct of War are here investigating the Fort Pillow affair. It is thought they will exonerate Gen. Hurlburt, as it is generally conceded that the force at bis command was inadequate to deal vigorously with Forrest. LOCAL NEWS. Committed to tbi Old Capitol. ?Mrs. Wm. Key Howard, who was arrested in Bal timore some days ago upon the charge of hav ing recently come from the South and engaged in blockade running and carrying on a corres pondence with the rebels, arrived in this city this morning, in charge of an officer, and was committed to the Old Capitol. At the tim? 0f Mrs. Howard's arreBt a number of letters were found in her apartments, which were taken possession of by the military authorities at Baltimore. Mrs. Howard had hardly reached her quarters in the Old Capitol prison before a number of ladies who came to this city in the same train with her were making efforts to ob tain a pass for the purpose of carrying her a package said to contain clothing. Whether their efforts met with success we are unable to say. A New Statio>-hochb.?The first new sta> t.on-house wiU shortly be handed over to the Police Commissioners by the city authorities. It is located on south D street, between 5th and 6th streets east, has a front of 30 feet by 40 feet det-p, two stories and a basement. The entrance door leads to a convenient office, with a large platform, furred up for the Sergeant in charge, with space for a telegraphic operator. A neat iron railing separates the platform from the remaining part of the room. Adjoining this public office, aad occupying part of front of building, there is a private office. In the rear there is the officers'sitting-room, Roundsman's room, and a passage which forms the sole access to the yard, it being held that all ingress and egress should be strictly controlled. The second story is occupied by dormitories for a large number of officers, each of whom has his own closet. A bathing-room and water closet are located in this story. The coal cellar is located in the basement, as is also a portable furnace, which heats the whole building. Ghas and water are introduced throughout the building. In the rear of a paved yard there is a de tached prison of two stories in height. The sheet iron entrance door leads through an arched passage to six prison cells, each one of which has a bench with head-rest, a hopper, supplied with Potomac water, and one iron plate, laid in solid concrete, for a floor. The cells are shut by doors, in the construction of which wrought iron bars have been combined, so as to present, with least weight, the essen tials of strength and a neat appearance. Iron stairs, outside the prison, lead to the second story, which is divided off in two rooms for male and female lodgers. These rooms again have water accommodations, and will receive berths for sleeping. The exterior ot the station bouse is plain, but executed in tasteful solid work; wood having been done away with, except in the crown, moulding of main cornice, which Is protected by tin. It has a bold central projection, bnilt up higher than the sides of the building, which very appropriately we think, gives the station a castellated appearance to this stronghold of public safety, which thus forms an ornament to the neighborhood. It is to be regretted that its location prevents the public at large from observing it. Adolf Cluss and W. Hammer hueter were the architects, Job W. Angus was the contractor. Thomas Lewis attended to the brick work, McLellan executed the iron work, and Sibley did the plastering. iHTsriciToue Mauri ao*.? Last night, Saxah Williams, one of the girls from Lizzie Nelson's ranche got on a drunk, kicked up a fight and was very badly used, having her face bruised and scratched, her beautiful silk dress torn, and her winning features, made dis. gusting. She was locked up in the station house all night, and this morning fined S3. Lizzie Nelson appeared and paid the line for her, with the understanding that Sarah should leave Lizzie's ranche forthwith. About one o'clock last Bight, the call of ??Polioe," "Police," was answered by Detective Big ley, who found an invaMd soldier named John Carroll bom plaining that an assault and battery.had been Committed upon him by a Woman In Hayes' ranche, 13th near C street Ths officer arrested the woman (Who it see ma la the wife of the soldier) and took her to the station house, and she making the :-eame charge against her husband befwas also locked up. This moru ing it appeared in evidence that Carroll mar rted tbftjoung girl, now only seventeen, tak. ing her fromJKadame Hayes' ranche. He took her bom* to his fathers house, but the family soon ascertained that she woidd not suit them for company, and she was obliged to leave. Her husbard returned with ber to Madam Heyea'where she has been staying. A good many little incidents occurred there to mar the matrimonial felicity, and last night they quarrelled. A young man with whom Mm. Carroll bad been driving araund, went with her to a room, and Carroll overheard their con versation, which waa of a character to excite his anger and fealonay. He exhibited his feel ing in a manner to draw bis yoang wife away from her companion, and the undertook to beat him. Justice Clayton fined Bose and dis? missed her husband. ?
