Tk? events of the b/t tan days have proved that tho fregraaeine of tha clliUry operations of the government, i tetograp><ed to tfce Bkilild by this correspondent some two wwHn a^o, te being strictly carried out. An army ?T forty thousar^i men wlU bo concentrated t\l and aboot this point, to cfce;k the agrees! vc demonstrations of tho ?MesBtoii fort or upon tho capital, and secure tho costrol ?f the Potomac river and Chesapeake Bay. A oorjma f ml from ten to 111 teon thousand will be statW??d ?t tMlro, and another or equal strength at fct. Louis, to protect tno Hisslssippl river and repel attacks that may bo po-.sifciy made upon exposed points to Southern Illinois, and cuppres" seo^mlun mcv tnents Ib Missouri and Arkansas. A holy of twenty i-.o.isnnd ViH he rmfcarkc.l upon steam transports, under the con voy of jnan of war, at the er.rltofct possible moment, to Mar r si) ihe rebels of tin 0"lf Stales, exhtost tueir ener gies by ?ompolllng '.bom to hurry their forrea from point te poot, and c fleet toaJln^ri for the rr capture of military ycrts. The relief ?f l'ort J'.c?v<3s will doubtioseiy be the At st omoLstrat.oa of tia hoiting army. Thfl precipitation of Virginia, North Oarelim and Ten aser?e into tho secession movement was the imttodlate ?ocatkiu of tho incond ull for an additional forcc of sixty five thousand volunteers. General S:oU was cooUcnt ?f being able to put down tho rebohion in the cotton an. sugar 3U'."? vith the Beventyl'vo thouponl ilrst " ? sailed cut. K-culd the rebellion spread still further In the border slave States, a third call will unquestionably * be ruodo. As it is, tho placing or large roservos upon a war fo-A.rf, a all the free States will enable the gmern a&eBt to nsa the whole of tho ono hundred and sixty thou sand men summoned into servloo for ofonsivo operations, tbe reserve forcos boing more thnc suillclent for horns Aefei ee. The Navy department expects to havo at l^vst fifteen ?s? of- ear put to sea for the blockade of the principal 8outh?m prris in a few days. P- me forty odd more t<* sc.' a will be got In readiness in the course of the next fnr w of k?, and in loss than sixty days every inlet on the Southern coast, from the month of James river to that of tho P!o Grando, will be effectually closed. V a.imlcNtrat.on eooRldere it oltogthor improbable that complicates w'th for.-i^-n Towers will arise fro? the blockade of tin Southern porta. It is true treitloe with European ar<' "irlsli American trovornments exist, nnd- r which a b. o con be made to operate against ?ssseig Mt'"ng under the flag of those Powers only npon the lapso of from two to six mouths after Its declaration; feat theeo stipulations relate to the blockade by the I'nlted ?tales of foroign, and not or its own ports. The right of any government to determine what points shall constitute ports of entry la unquestionably absolute, although the Mittory of nations may not aiford a parallel to the man ner in which it is abjul bom* asserted by the government of this country. Even If a formal blocktde were not es tablished, foroign trade with Son thorn ports could not be ?entlnued, they b?ing no longer parte of entry.

Tho President never Vxked hatter than now, and soesfcs the man for the crisis. From tho **Rt unofficial calculation that can be mad<>, there are now about fifteen thousand troops in the city, Including the militia of tho lHatriot. Add to this the Eighth New York, Thirteenth Brooklyn,' pJew York Fire men Zouaves, Col. Oorooran's Rtxty ninth Now York regiment, and three regimonts from New JiTsey, all at Anntpolls, or in rente to this city from there, tog''*hor with the sffendld Hying art?jo/y ?> it ' terleH from Iloetoa and lYovidanco, with twelve of Jamea' j i lflol cannon cash, and the number of troops now here, I and withir three ho.ira' traa port, will amount to twenty | four thousand three hundred men.

Mr. D.?vl8 had an Interview with ! tho President to day, hut wb<<thor v> ith tho intention of i asking the President to withdraw the Irmps from before Baltimore again or not is not known. I am sure trial tho rresident feels much as tho Northern and Western people do, that all anpearanco of kmporLelng with trai tors must be avoided.

T. o policy which hns been most prewed upon the President, within the 1'ift few days, is nubptun tiaiiy as follows ?To hold \ irginla, ne Maryland U held, with a strong h\nj, and await Mr. J rson I>avi? la tho Old Dominion until tho hot weather is over; m^jantlme, to seal bcrmetlca' y every Hov.thern port, and seo what com 9 < ( it, and if, when the cool months begin, Dav^ ond Com pa. y have not been dlspoeed of by their own people, to treat thmn ai they dosorve. Of oourse, tlmo must l>e allowed for properly equipping, arming and d* ctpiinlng the volunteer f?rcos. No General can muster an army and p?t It la the field in a week. I am afraid that the Nor h is in too great a hurry, and expects a do clsive blow to l?< ptruck before the national arm has been fairly raised. General Scott is renewing his youth.
