SI!AIX WE HAVE A MILITARY OICTATOHStltP OR A ItOYAI. KILE? [From the London Herald (it rby organs, August 10.] American affairs s< om to lie what the French rail "precipitating themselves" with groat rapidity. The rupture is yet hut a few months old; only one battle and a few trilling skirmishes have takon place, and already New York seems almost in a state of anarchy, and a military despotism has commenced establishing itself, if it is not already established. That such events would bu likely to tako place was apparant to most observers; but that they should take place with such rapidity lies been startling even to those who are least disposed by their politl cal principles to rely ou the patriotism of demagotiea nnd the effect ivcuiss of armies controlled by clubs and committees. We all knew that the bulk of what has been called the grand army oouslsted partly of row volunteers, partly of ruar canary regiments,composed of roroi, is picked tip.unywhere and anyhow, the whole comm. nded in chief by a few superior officers of the regular American army, of , real knowledge and merit, but commanded la detail by regimental officers, most of whom had not only u< ver seen 9ervlce"but hud scarcely ever wen regular aftid su-ady ! drill.

I With that portion of the subject, however, It is not our nreaeut purpose to deal, except en pat rant. Wo wish more particularly to comment on the flight of Bull run; not with a view to harp upon the diegraceful conduct of the thousands who fled In panic before an enemy that waB not pursuing, but rather with the view or palliating or explaining their conduct, by calling attention to the causes which led to so many regiments throwing away their character as soldiers?causes winch are at -writ in nil largo bodies of undisciplined men, ofikered by regimental ofl'cers ignorant of their duty, causes which, taking a broader view of the philosophy of man's nature, are at work In all large bodies of ui?n, under hII circumstances. The tight at Bull run was a clear panic among the men?unchecked, because they had officers who neither knew how to check them in a military point of view, nor had any influence over thorn.

[From the Now York Timet, August 28.] CABINET MATTERS. Wo do not believe the people of tills country were ever more nearly unanimous i any subject than they are in demanding 'hat Joseph 11 It,of Kentucky, should be made Secretary of War. Wo mention this simply as a fact, forced upon our uolioe by what wc see and hear every day in the city and the country, among, men of all partie's?and without the slightest purpose or expectation of seeing any such event achieved. The person most interested in knowing the fact is probably the very last one who will bo jiermltted to bcllevo or understand it. Mr. Lincoln's knowledge of wli^t th? people wjtnt comes to him through those by whom ho is immediately surrounded ?men who have personal purposes to servo by approaching him, and whose facts are shaped by their bearing on ttiose purposes. They tell him what t'^eV suppose he desires to hear; and a-: lie is knowu to '.lftve certain favorite ideas about kooping his Cabinot dhbrofecn making it a unit, Arc., ho is not lik^; ^ he very thoroughly formed i v* ijmj u?V'U wmcn wou'u uisiuru unto !<iena. But fr<m dnf ind of tin country to the other there is a j?'0 fountf and universal dircnfiLni with fhe hiOwmcnLaf the [Var Dpar'.vmnt?a discontent tliAl dikes no definite slmpo, fastens u|wn no specific acts, and is not inclined towage any personal warfare on tho present incumbent,but which plants the Feeds of a profound distrust, and a heavy, hopeless, leaden disrourngentent in the public heart. No man who has been among the people anywhere enn doubt the oxistenec of suoli a feeling. Thoy tiro not hopeful of victories, and are more and more depressed by the tidings of fresh disasters. Thoy feel, without exactly knowing why, that wliilo they are giving millions upon millions 'of money artfl hundreds of thousands of men to the government for the service of the country, these enormous resources are not US' d to tho best*advantage?the country does not reap from them the benefits it has n right to expect?and they naturally look to the War Department as resiHinsible for titis disheartening disappointment. We hare no intention to reason either for or ayainst this impression. TT< tlesire merely to assert it* existence. It is poworftil and ail pervudiug, and it Is at this moment exerting a most depressing and damaging influence upon the general tone of the country. Wo do not ascribe the whole of it to absolute dissatisfaction with Mr. rameron. It is partly due to a profound convict ion that justico and g<KHl policy both require that the loyal element in tho democratic party, and the glorious Unionism of Kentucky, Tennessee mid Missouri, should receive tho recognition and encouragement which the presence of such a man as H"lt in tho Cabinet would imply. President Liucolu probably does not realize how thoroughly and utterly all mere partisanship has died out of the popular heart in preseneo of that fervent, patriotic Game by which It is fired. Men think no longer of party lines and party interests. They do not thank him anywhere for partisan appointments. They deprecate and deplore everything which recognises and porpetuatca party divisions. While tho country Is Involved in a fierce and terrible struggle for its very existence, they look ujion ail who rally to its flag as brethren in a common cause, and as oqua'ly entitled to share the honors and rcs)>oiMibilillea of the public service. This is a noble feeling, and deserves a more cordial reapimse than it has yot received at the hands of the national government. It proves a breadth and comprehensiveness in the (Hipular judgment of this great contest, to which nothing in tho action of the government as yot corresponds. ^ ^ I ]> (V in*: jrretcni rime me wunvmni utw/rt raw veer* 1,1/7*dueled ujhiti a party hasit.

The First regiment ot Missouri Volunteers arrived here from ltulla yesterday, and went into camp near Lafayetta Park. TUoy left St. Louis on the 13th of June,fought la tho battle of Boouovillo on the 18lh, inarobed thence one hundred and sixty miles to Springfield, were In the skirmish at Dog Springs and in the battle of HpringQeld, whore they Buffered such terrible loss, and the day following that muworublo occasion took up thoir retreat for Holla. They Uavo marched nearly fonr hundred miles since the time of their departure from the arsenal, and havo undergone privations tlrut would Uavo broken down many of the Hue regiments of the Fast. At I ho time ot their entrance yesterday, though their ranks wore fearfully thinned, and all boro the marks of a severo and fatiguing campaign, their step was as firm and olastto us when they appeared on dross parade at tho arsenal when they tlrut entered tho sorvico. Under the order lately issued by General Fremont, tliey will at once commonco recruiting for a regiment 2,000 strong, to consist of twelve companies, ouch with n buttery of six pieces light artillery. The officers under the new arrangement will be? Frank P. BUflr, Colonel. Geo. 1.. Andrews, Lieutenant Colouel. James Totton, Senior Major. .1. M. Bcutlold, Junior Major. M. L. I-attrrop. Senior Captain. John V. It. MuBois, Second Captain. S. H. Masscuck, Adjutant.

Alt of them were uuted for their gallantry in the battle at Sprlngllotd. Tho Kansas First and Second regiments are expected here to night. The former will remain to rocrnlt to make up for its se vore loss in ttiu buttle of the 18th. uml olllce.i will bo opened for its buuolU in Kansas, to 1111 up its rniiks there, and a:< soon na full will come bark to St. Louis. They have tin Ir choice en tlicir way upward of going by bout or by rail, just as they prefer, and the officers urc anxious to find out by which route there is the greatest probability of gutting up a tight, ;au desire to the one the moat promising. The office, s cf the Kansas First are a little indignant at finding they uuunot have some opportunity of gutting up a couilict, and one of them (Mtyor lialderiniu), who was conspicuous for his gallantry on the menus-aide loth, thinks it would lie much hotter to recruit at the various towns along the "Big Muddy" than in this city, citing as a reason the extreme probabilities of a daily light. li the grand army of the Potomac wan composed of such soldiers as thn Kansas boys, or those oi the First Missouri, the defeat at Hull run wi uld have been on the other side, and the Stars ami riiri[u'H noma loua.v wave nvi r ruenmona, wun ma Confederate army inure than liuil dowu.buyouil the ,Southoru horizon.

I give IPs statement Tor what it Is worth. Since the priuluiuation of Gov. Gamble cailing for 42,000 men, the Irish of St. Louis, a majority ol' whom arc opposed to lighting, and especially lo lighting against I ha rebels. have taken qulto a scare. They fear that it will be lie-, e.esrary to draft men to till up the ranks Of this troops this called for, and are leaving the city to avoid enrolment. One, who exults in owning a drug storo, was at tlrsi inclined to depart, but sagely concluded that doctors and pill venders would b; exempt from service, and thcro wns no reason for him to bo frightened. It is very doubtful If the system of drafting is employed. It is rumored to uiglit that Gun. MoCulloch is marching in Ihu direction of Holla, mid has sent a force towards Jcilorson City; and I learn that positivo information to that olfect lias been received at headquarters. What will bo ilono in tho matter is not known, and wo can. only await tho actiou of the Major General. It is very diUicult to get Intelligence from tha "lma lquartors Wcstorn 1)0partmont," of which (Jon. Fremont la tho manager. Tha President of the United hiatus is accessible with half tha trouble requisite, to get inside tho ofllca of tho Western Commander-in-Chief,and an American gentleman, in tha costume of his native land, would find it as easy to got within the walls of an Oriental harem as gain admittance to tho sacred penetralia of tho Major General of the Went. 1 loam incidentally that orders were given to-day Tor the employment of twenty tugboats and for tho purchase of one thousand wagons and their complement of mules. Tho contract for the mules was given t<> Messrs. Hoard & Palmer, of San Francisco, the latter formerly of ths well known hanking firm of Palmer. Cook # Co.": and re jiort hath it thin 110 price U stipulated, but thocontractors are allowed to pui rlia. e on any terms tliey can make.

Uoyd's regiment, recruited in Springfield, und now at Itol'.a. has been ordored to this city to be fill od up and received Into service. Its officers will bo Colonel S. II.Boyd, Lieutenant Colonel .1 aire-a K. Mills, and Major Wosion. Colonel Boyd is a resident of .Springfield, and tal?s much interest In perfecting his command. Liout. Colonel Mills was formerly Major on Gen. Sweeney's staff, and Maj.Weston is an old fighter, who served as Lieutenant under General Lyon during thu Mexican war. The regiment now has about seven hundred men, und it is proponed to fill it up with Illinois and Indiana rocruits. Wbeu well drilled and disciplined it will be on a of the fluest in the service. General Lyon's body reached licro late last'evening, in charge of his friends." It is not yet decided what services will take plac in the cily, though it is probable that ilio remains will be sent at once to Connecticut. The party was treated at SpriojgiMd with the utmost kiuduess by all the rebel officers. MARTIAL LAW IN ST. LOUIS. TUB FROVOST MARSHAL CI.USES UP THE LIQUOR SALOONS. In consequence or disturbances among the soldiery of St. Louis, and tho fact that similar disorders were more or less to be anticipated from tlio tliruuga collected a4 1 drinking establishments, Provost Marshal McKitistry issued an order closing all the liquor saloons and gar lens throughout the city. Tito execution of this sweeping ppdicl naturally excited great curiosity, and gave rise to a hundred startling rumors, each of which gained the more credence when less likely (from their oxtravagance) to l>e probablo. The following is the order:? OKP1R KO. 86.

The accused in this case again appeared for exam astiou *jut aKJ'n ^e government was unprepared to proceod with It J* lbe al)Sonco ?f l'ie witnesses expected from Boston. It App?trea .tUal Ujc8? witnesses wore willing to l>? In attendance, hilt the Bistrici .Attorn<,y Boston could not forward them on without a Judge's precept, the difficulty of procuring which was the cause of their absence. On the previous examlnstion day the Commissioner notified the District Attorney here that if he (the District Attorney) was not prepared with his witnesses ho would discharge the prisoner on recogniz.uice to appear fop subsequent examination. The Commissioner would have acted in accordance with lii? intimation of the prev.ous day but that the prisoner was unconditionally discharged on a technical objection raised by his counsel. The oblection raised was. that the Commissioner liad no evi denco before bim that (ho affidavit sworn to at Boston, and upon which a warrant was issued hero Tor the prisoner's arrest, was really signed by a Justice of the Peace or Massachusetts, as it purported to be. Reference was made to Conkling's treatise on the subject, and there the objection was sustained, by an extract from a ruling by Chief Justice Marshall. The Commissioner thereupon discharged the prisoner. Death of \Vm, Lyon Mackenzie. Tozotno, C. W., August 27,1301. Win. Lyon Mackenzie, ex-member of Parliament, died last night In this city.
