General li 'auregurd reci ived me very soiiri <>?isiyj invu 'U inr to ins rui'ss wriiio I run iineu,uuu %ffor<l<vl ino every neodful facility for visiting the various ' cainps so altered around.

I lepra; hated 1 at West i'o int Military School, whero Inn studious habits 1 anil professional acquirements obtained for him the 11inr11 let honors. Upon the expiration ol' his collegiate course iio ! was appointed to tho EngineerCorps of tb United Stat'-s Army. Subsequently betook part in the Mexican war. 1 Indeed, it wits at ills snpycgtiou, when yet Imtn Untenant, * that Genera! Scott successfully attacked the city of Mexico by tbe Bcluu or Western Gate. Th s simple circumstance ? wily shows what a high opinion was entertained of tho ' young soldier by his superior officer?, even at the com- * neniemout of his military career, lie was at length derated to the rank of major, and not very l ing since lie- !i same the Superintendent of tho United States Military 1 Academy. From this honorable position, however, his . ymputliy for the South caused him to retire just before the commencement of the present unhappy li stililies, 1 when President Davis raised him to tiie rank of Brigadier , general in tho Confederate States Army. It is superfluous 'or me to toll you that ho was engaged in the attack on 1 fort Sumter. General Beauregard is about the middle ' height, thin, but muscular. His features arc somewhat ! ibarp, his forehead intellectual, his eyes bright and J piercing, and his aspect grave. He is remarkable for eir- ' sumspcut retieenee, so that no one can worm more in- ' formation out of him than he deems it prudent to convey. 1 Although remarkably soldier-like and somewhat austere, there is a bianduess and ov>n suavity of maimer about bim which quickly wins upon one. ' TUB MB* T.till.K A.VP UIDG1MIS OF TUB OONFEPKRATE CIIUTS. 1 The hitherto quiet country around Mantissas Junction fcas indeed undergone a remarkable transformation. With the exception of a hotel on an exceedingly limited scale, there are hut two or three dwelling houses here, which ' ire now occupied by tho,military authorities. In one of these, situated about a quarter of a mile from the railway depot, General Beauregard and his stall" have ' taken up their headquarters. It is rather a small, uupro- ! tending building, not unlike an English cottage, in can- ' lequence of the basement rooms being turned iutoofllces, , the bouse ulfords t.o accommodation for refectory pur- ! poses; so a long table of plain wood has been erected at sue side of the dwelling, where the General and his efflsers take their usual meals. This table, when laid out ; with metal plates, tin cans and similar ramp parapherna- 1 lia?divested, too, of the luxury of u white-linen cloth? toasccrtaiuly a very primitive appearance, and does not erve to stimulate the uppetote. Nevertheless, the crea- ' tore comforts arc of u substantial, although not of a luxurious kind.

However, sotne few thousand troops still remain, and their tents may be seen strctcliingoutin all directions wherevi r the eye can penetrate, giving to the locality a very picturesque warlike appearance. Otto portion of the ground to appropriated to horses, wagons and ambulances, while tn close proximity to the station all ktndH of army stores are piled in every conceivable manner, awaiting further transit. Manassas Oap may be regarded as the key to the Upper Potomac. General Beauregard's command extends to the right of this line, while General Johnston occupies tiie left, rho former lias advanced posts at Centrevillo and Fairfax, under Ronhaip, whose pickets are within Bvo or six miles of the federalists; so that skirttishes between the scouts of either party are of frequent occurrence. General Beauregard's forces occupy two triangular positions within 11 wide range of territory. Each position is judiciously selected and well protected by extensive redoubts, deep intrenchmcnts, and guns of Mavy calibre, although I have not seen any of those masked batteries for which the Northern army seem to 1 loterUnn go marked an apprehension. The defences at Manassas Junction arc of a (Ruticulnrly Wmidabla character, us this place is mount to fail Imc'k 1 apon in the event ol' a defeat or retreat, should the for- j tunes of war so determine. To the right of Camp Pickens, ; a the direction of the Potomac, the Confederate troops Itretch out as far as the Occoquan, and in the direction }f Leesburg to ttie left. Even Arlington Heights are : protected on nil sides, while advanced parties continue ? annoy the enemy along the London and Hampshire Railroad, from I.oe.-burg to their camp at llillsboro'.

This inconvenience was, I am in- ' Virroed, severely felt when some eight or ten thousand 1 idditional troo|is were encam|>ed here. Artesian wells, r iowever, are being sunk,and it is hO|ied that a larger and juror supply may by this means be obtained. Sickness, (specially measles, prevails among the men to some 1 extent; and some deaths have taken place since my irrival. There aro three temporary hospitals erected in the encampment, which are distinguished by a yellow ( lag Hooting in front, but the majority of the sick are re- 1 ttoved to Culpepper Court House, a small village perhaps ' V)rty milts nearer Kichmeud, where there is a comBodious hospital and an clllclent medical tin I surgical 1 (toff. Alwul 'J00 sick soldiers are in this establishment. ' THE WASUIXUTON ARTILLERY OF NEW ORLEANS IX ('AMI'. picturesque spot called Mitchell's Ford, where the Washngton artillery of Now Orleans are at present encamped, rbe locale is open, elevated, nnd salubrious, bordered by tense woods, so that the tops of the stately trees can bo ibaerved in the distanco, forming, as it were,a magic cirile around the camp. Contiguous is a broad stream like ? small river, called the Iiull run, which is several miles n extent, and alforiis an abundance of good wholesome rater. Being one of the crack corps in the field, the Washingnn artillery deserves a mure than passing notice. As early as 183l> this volunteer body became formally ncorporated; but since 1850, when its present command'?r, Major Walton, identilled himself with it, the corps lias frown In numbers ami reputation, so as to become llie Just Wide of Louisiana, and a powerful addition to the Confederate army. To iho efforts of this body is attrisutablu the establishment of the Louisiana Poly- I rchnic Academy, from which military school save sprung general and field olllcois now in the uiny of the l'ot uriac. Indeed, froip its own ranks liavd iris 'it well educated military men who have obtainoo liatingulshod posts of command in other organizations. Die battalion now numbers 500 men, rack and file, 32.r> of irhom are in Virginia, and the remainder in New Orleans. 'Is force of ordnance consists of fourteen field pieces, tornp ed of rilled cunnon, howitzers, and six-pounders, fie Aft of which arc from the old I'iliggolil battery. The yuj of the individuals who compose the Washing ? Artillery is high. In its ranks are young men of iberal education, high toned character, social jmsi. don, and occasionally of corsaierable wealth. In sscbanging their distant and happy homes for the ough and disagreeable duties of a soldier's life, they have | made larco and heroic sacrifices. The strong ties of tlndred h ive boon rigorously snapjicd asunder, and the elation? of blood all but forgotten in what tit y eonsi 'er the holy cause of country nr.d duty. They have been rerv inexi>eiisive to the Confederate treasury, as they tqaipped,and have,I believe, partiahy, if not solely, mainialned tbcmsclvi s.

[From I At Pullet. ] Tho town ha? now lost .ill its attractions; we begin to dull for the scn.-ido and tho country. Thus tho toilets notable for these places have ttie grcati si interest at this -cuson (ii in.'} ear. ions no cncvre, alpacas, ami uuiiiin ;s are used m (simple toilets; but tliey are not wanting in elegance. knr tliose who wish for something more drossy than tlpaea. foulard may bo substituted. or, what is still pret i i'T. wliitfi quilting,triunnod with colored bamlsor ruehes. With those drossi s the /ouuve jie kct is worn, trimmed to match, with u full chcmtsot of cam brio. Tlioro is nothing very novel In tl.o umbo of dresses this miiinli. The rohe lieatrix is perhaps tlio favorite, and certainly deserves to bo so, as il elves height to the llgure and stnallness to the wan I. It lias only ono bounce ?t the both m of the skirt, but this flounce is put on according to fancy, often raised at Hie sides, and forming a train behind. In tarlataue und Cauibray gauzo this Jre. s is charming for evening dnss. Sjasato dress should bo un ro remarkable for elegance .ban richness; therefore, tulle illusion and crape are gene rally considered out of place. We must, ltowi ver, make txecptions to this rule, as at sonio of our fasliii liable watering places dress is carried ton complete rivalry. A robe Beatrix, o( vAlte urUtnu, the flounce raised it each side under boipn t? of wild (lowers. ( Villi.re, himindour of boqucts of Wild (lowers, with bows of black relvet.

Low silk body, covered Willi tulle, and trimmed villi luc? tn match the skirt. Wreath of water lilies and truss in the liair. A pink siik dri s*. with un English lace flounce, placed i la Beatrix, und caught up at the sides by bnquets of mrtensla, tinted with the Ha mo shade as the dress, joiffuro, boqucts of liortensia, with harbes of white lace. latst, a blue silk dress, with six flounces, three of which ire curried up to the waist, the body trimmed with wreaths of tea roses and foliage. Head dross to match. Linen dresses, with paletots to match, embroidered in black or red wool, arc much worn, as well as blouses of vliitc muslin or colored Jaconet. We lind that flounces are still in favor on thin dresses, rile bodies of these light dresses are generally made low, tnd Helms or pelerines worn with them. The sleeves are ilways wide, and ornamented to match the skirt. The aider sleeves very large, and trimmed with butterfly bows. With this style of dress, a small mantelet of the same is often worn out of doors. That which meets w ilh the greatest success Is the scurf, with bread mid very short square ends; simply trimmed with a flounce anil beading, and bows of ribbon. Tbis year barege is admitted for demi-toilntte; and, certainly, acorn flower blue lnirego over a tall'etas skirt of the same shade is very pretty. Tliis dress should bo trimmed with three narrow flounces with headings. Tho body plain and high, witli a long scurf sash of taffetas, with fringed ends. The sleeves just easy and opened up to the elbow; trimmed with a frill. The summer paletot, made ei a material with a silk race, is very suitable for tins season, more es|>ecia!ly for tho country or for travelling. It is both light and warm, and is made so that it may bo either crossed over the clicst or turned buck in reverse. The shawls, ti imnied round with lace, arc made of vio let, brown or deep blue; but, still ol'lcuer, of white or black grenadine or cashmere. me minimis, or summer rape tin snupc very mum me same as the cardinal ca|?e, worn some years since), is sometimes preferred to tin; paletot, especially with a rresli. light dress, us being less liable to crush. They are generally made of drab, colored or black material, though often of the same material as the dress. For the ovi nlng a white cashmere burnous, w ith satin strip s, is fashionable. There is a yerv stylish rediugoto, made for travelling dress, of Indian foulard, or raw silk. The plaits in front arc piped with black tafletas, and down the "out a row of large Mack buttons is placed. All the seams of the skirt and body have thick pipings of black tafletas, and round the bottom of tlic skirt is a flounce, about twentylive inches in depth, put on iti hollow plaits, with a heading bordered with black, mid ornamented by a button placed on each plait. Tills toilette is completed by a half tight casuque, liko the dress, and piped to match. This cosaque is opened a little in front, and has a turned back collar and narrow rovers of black taffetas. The sleeves are half large, with black trimmings. The dress sleeve is, of course, made tight. The Amazon hat is now worn in Paris, as well as In the country; but caro should be taken with the rest of the dress, and thorasaquc or |>aletot looks always the best with tills style of hat. The Finland hat is very fashionablo just now. The brim of this hat falls a little to shade the eyes, with a boquet of flowers quite ut the edge, so that it gives one the impression of falling; hut it must be left so, as that is really one charm in this graceful head-dress. The Tudor hat. edgod w ith velvet and trimmed with a long curled feather at the side and pompon in front, is also very fashionable, and exceedingly becoming to most laces. Hut our modistes have not been unmindful of those who still prefer bonnets, ami great tusto is displayed with regard to them. For example, a rico strtiw bonnet, with -olt crown of tulle. Illondu curtain over mauve silk. Fhe front lined with mauve, and at the side a rosette of blonde, from which tails a bunch of mauve flowers. Another smaller bunch of the same flowers inside the bonnet on the opposite side. T'.lark crinoline is also worn. An elegant one was rimmed with black ribbon, embroidered in maize, and irlmmcd with a bouquet of geraniums and exotic fruits. Orange blossom, for bribal wreaths, seems likely to be mperseded by white lilac, which is a lar more elegant tnd becoming flower, and can be arranged with more ;race.

The question will naturally arise, what point of the United Kingdom will be best adapted as the one of departure. 1 think Ireland is. I believe the west coast of Ireland is the best, and, if the hono: able member will al ow me, I would add that tho town of Galway, being tho no st central point of communication, would, perhaps, be the mogt desirable. But it will be for the government liereattcr to consider the sub) * more attentively.

In short, looked at in any point of view, thero is every reason to believe that she will still furtin r enhance the renown of her builders, and add materially to tho fame of the steam llotillaof Liverpool. THE BROCKS BROTHERS' CLOTHIING CONTRACT. Rt |ily of llio Inspector* to the llcport of tin- Select Committee?The Ilogpon?lt>Ilily I'lincil on the JMllitury Iiiiuul?Tlic Coiitiuet, &r. Tho Military Hoard seems determined to cam an unenviable fame in connection with tliis matter. It first makes a iflsgraroful eentrnct, and then attempts to fasten upon others tho responsibility of its own acts. Thereport of its select committee, lately published, is a labored ami most disingenuous effort to exculpate the Hoard, and to prove that Brooks Brothers and the Inspectors are the guilty parties. Tho i ff >rt will not succeed. The material facts aro too cosily established, and point too clearly to the culpability of the Board, to bo perverted or even obscured by any amount of special pleading or misstuti mini. The undersigned have already published a card in vindication of their official conduct ns inspectors of the cloth, ing furnished under this contract. lu that card they made no charges against others but confined themselves to a simple statement of the facts connected with their own duty, and tho manner in which it was performed. Conscious of tlie entire truthfulness of their statements .liev (Yield tint. iiiOw-ttinti. Ih-.f flni'i-iK" anil least i f all the Military Hoard, would venture to challenge its correctness by renewing against litem the charge of uu faithfulness. In this they were in.- taken. The Board has less fuirness and less prudence than they gave it credit for. In the report of its select comm'.ttco the char' geearo distinctly made that the contract was not faith fully executed, and that the ins|tectors wero culpably remiss in the performance of their duty. These charges, thus renewed in an official document, cnnmiot pass unchallenged. The inspectors know them to he groundless, and they owe it to themselves to place before the public the evidence of that tact. If this evidence shall prove injurious to the reputation of the Hoard, it must charge its publication to the unfairness and In discretion of its select committee. The u:e;? ctors present it in self-defence, and as due to the public. A copy of the contract with Brooks Brothers is herewith submitted; also certificates from their foromau. and from highly rospectablo commission houses who furnished them the goods complained of. These documents n! no completely exculpate the inspectors from the charges of the select committee. They prove h yoiul cavil that the contract called for various styles and dualities of goods, all at the price of $19 50 per uniform; that the control, lors furnished the identical goods they agreed to, and that the uniforms were well made, and the workmen liberally paid therefor. In a word, they prove tliat the contract was faithfully executed and the goods properly ins|iected. Hero the matter might be safely left to the judgment of an intelligent community. But the inspectors feel called upen to probe the subject deeper. There is a general and well grounded conviction that some wrong lias been committed on the patriotic volunteers in connection with this contract, and it is proper the public should know through whose instrumentality it lias been done. The following facts, known to the Select Committee, but not frankly and fairly stated m their report, will, it is believed,furnish the needed information ? On the 23d day of Apr11 the Military Hoard published a notice inviting bids for I2,0(X) uniforms. Without wait ing for the competition that such notices are intended to elicit, the Board on the same or following day accepted the hid of Mr. Robert Freeman, made in behalf of Brooks Bros., for the whole number of uniforms, ut $19 M eat b, to he made of all wool kersey, of the stylo and quality used in clothing the United States Army. Brooks Bros., upon being informed of the acceptance of this bid. proceeded to purchase all the army kerseys then on the market, and, Unding the quantity largely deliclcnt, at once apprised the Board of the fact. Tim Board rescinded by appointing one of its members, Mr. liorslicimer. n committee to confer with tbom on the subject. The conference took place, Mr Dorshelmer being aide l by the Inspector General, and, to some extent, by Mr. Thurlow Weed, it resulted in the selection and adoption of eigne uiucroui irn 01 as lunowr, \n: Like Ham pic No. 1. 2,600 dark l)iuc kersey jackets. Like sample No. 8, 2.100 dark blue felt Jackets. Like snntjile No. 3, 7.300 cadet mixed satinet jackets. Like samjile No. 1,2.400 dark blue kersey trowscrs. Like sam|ile No. 7, 2,400 light Idue kersey trowsers. Like sample No. 3, 7.200 cadet mixed satinet trowsers. Like sample No. 4, 4.000 brown mixed overcoats. Like sample No. 6,1,600 blue petrcsham overcoats. Like sample No. 2,2,000 mixed kersey overcoats. Like sample No. 6, 4.000 cadet mixed doeskin overcoats. These goods, tlius substituted for the all-wool army cloth, on which the bid of $19 60 per suit was predicated, Mr. Dorsheimer entered into a written contract for, without asking any abatement of price; and the Hoard approved his action, although its inefubers might have learned fr< m any dry goods clerks that the material thus contracted for had little more than half the market value of that on which the bid was made. Styles Nos 3 and 4, of which there were 18,500 garment*, cost less than half the price of army kersey. So any one acquainted with dry goods could have told them that "fell cloths" were unfit for army clothing. Thescarcity of military goodsat thetime this contract was made may afford some excuse for the. adoption of these Inferior qualities; but it cannot he offered In justification of the Hoard's agreement to pay for them the price asked for the best. Here is precisely where the wrong on the volun [(IT? ?? II1IIVW. ?HU l??IU V'UHHOIVU IW (o-ou, modiuin mid inferior goods,nil ut a prion that would liuvo lKfii lib< ral for the host, and it got precisely wliat it liargained fir. If t lie Select Committee will address itself to tin1 task of giving satisfactory explanations of this princely liberality of the Hoard at the expense of the volunteers, it w ill do itself more c redit, and bo more likely to meet public expectation, than by vain efforts, through starchamber proceedings, to fasten on others the public odium justly excited by the misdeeds of the Hoard. The public w ould also like an explanation of the committee's reasons for omitting to state ti e Important fact that the Board had already compromised with Brooks Brothers by their agreeing tofurn s'.i gratuitously U,350 additional suits?not for any unfaithfulness on their pent in executing the contract, but because ilic liberality of its provisions enabled them to aflbril it, nnd because the Board, threatening to repudiate Its own contract, they couid uut otherwise obtain the balance due them. In a word, why d d the Sekct committee r?commend that the $-<4,000 due Brooks lirothere should be Withheld, when it knew the Hoard had already compromised with th'in for less lmlf that sum? it will not venture to say that the report was pubj lishcd or fully written out b toro tho compromise was i agreed upon. Th-re nro a few paragraphs in the report that t ocptirp from the undersigned more special notice and comment. Tho Select Con unit teo assert with lis much cunUdcuco as if they were experts in woolen fabrics, that tho satinet jnck'-ts end trowsers were made of cloth inferi r to samp'o No. 8. attached to tho contract: that they were made of cloth known as ' shoddy." tender, unfit for use, Ac. The ceiiffoatc of Messrs*, (loolrkh, 1-reeman k foster, puts tliis charge at rest. They, as agents el tlic mill that made these goods, sold them to Bro. k- Brothers, nnd they pronounce th in as good or h it r than sample. I No. 3 contracted for. They also certify that these gooils i were mamifactiuo 1 for their regular sales, that they were not made of " shoddy," but good, nierchantaliio giiods. It may be well here to inform tlie Select Committee that there is uo cloth known in tlie tiale as shoddy. Au article of that name, made I y carding lipoid cloths, sometimes constitutor one of the ingrcdio us of wikiIIi-u fabrics ; but it is not to be found in any of the cloths or sat nets made up under the Brooks contract.

Capitalists arc turning their ntt? ntioa to Treasury notes, which tiro being freely tukeu. The foreign exchange market closed firm. The stock market continues dull, and prices wero lower again this morning. Heavy sales of Virginias, Tennessee* and Missouri* were effected this morning, and, notwithstanding the demand for them for delivery, Virginias fell off Missouri* % utul Tennessee* We have nothing further with regard to flic action of the rebels in the. matter o' these securities. It need hardly be remarked that the Confederate Congress has no direct authority over the State of Virginia; it has authority over every citiz.cn of Virginia, however, and can pronounce the payment of money by any Virginian to an alien enemy high treason. To make the repudiation of these bonds certain, we understand that the legislature of each State, will, on the recommendation of tho Confederate Congress, proceed to repudiate theui. We learn that there ure precedents lor the act in our revolutionary history. Federal stocks were I steady to-day, with a moderate business. Tho inquiry fur six per cent Treasury notes continues brisk. Railw ay shares were all lower. New York Central fell J4, Erie %, Illinois Central %, Ilock Island %, Toledo %, Catena %, guaranteed %, Michigan Central %. At the close of the board the market was dull, but steady.

The sheet of coupons attached, however, is printed in red, while the old is in black. This bond lias just been forwarded frotn the West, where it lias doubtless been put in circulation, and, so far as we know, is the first issue of u e rebel authorities. These bonds will, of coujse, liud no circulation here, as they hear all the marks of a spurious issue. The new demand notes of lives, tens and twen* ties are nearly ready for use. The American Hank Note Company expect to bo able to forward the first instalment to Washington on Thursday next, and the calculation is that half a million per day can he supplied after the lirst day of September.
