GENERAL ANDERSON TO EE RELIEVED FROM ACTIVE SERVICE ON ACCOUNT OF ILL HEALTH. It is understood, from good authority, that General An derson will ask tojbc relieved from active duty, on ac count of declining health, and it is probable that General Wm. G.

APPOINTMENT OF JULICS BINO AS CONSCL TO SMYRNA. Julius Bing, not morefamous for iiaving beon captured at Bull Run and conveyed to Rleh>n< ud and for his return to loyaldom, than Ills connection with Ripley and Dana, of the Now York Tribune, upon the Appletou Encyclopedia, and hit fame in Boston the "Athens of America," where the name of Bing is as well know n a.s any in history, has been appointed Consul to Smyrna. ADVICES FROM MEXICO. Advices have been received from Minister Cor win, from the city of Mexico, with dates to the 10th of September. There appears to be hot little encouragement for a peace ful solution of the difficulties which distract that country. The Juarez party stiil maintained its nscendancy in most of the States. Ilia new postal treaty negoti ated at Washington was not satisfactory to the Juarez government, and has been returned. An extradition treaty had been completed and despatched to Washington forratiilciitifin-. The commercial treaty, tho skeleton of which Minister Corwin took with him, was still under negotiation, w ith little h'ipe of a successful or satisfactory arrangement. It appears that the demands of the Mexican government, in compensation for tho privi leges ami rights desired by our government, aro greatly in excess of those contained in the late treaty which the Senate r< fused to ratify. TUB RUSH TOR OFFICE AND CONTRACTS. The War Department is overrun by applicants for offices und contracts, and tho Secretary's door is con stantly besoiged by persons who want interviews with him to subserve personal ends. Tho Secretary desires it to be distinctly understood that there are no vacancies of Paymasters, Quartermasters, or Commissariea in his gift,nor are there my app tintmontaof ofTicor3 of tho line to bo m:i 1c, excepting in the regular course of promotion. When second lieutotiancies aro thus vacated the plnres will be filled by appointments from the ranks. All con tracts fur supplies, munitions, frc., are made r< spectively by the Quartermaster General and the Chief of Ordnance, and toUtem nil parties should apply who have proposals to make. Application.; for appointments iu> acting quar termasters and master's mates should bo made to the Navy Deportment In writing, and not in person. Tho War Department can furnish the "Revised Army Regulations" only m> the officers of the army, and not to Members of Congress and other applicants. KO VC.'IENTK OF PENNSYLVANIA POLITICIANS.

GENERAL FREMONT'S CHARGES AGAINST COLONEL BLAIR. St. Lori!". Oct. 0.1861. Gen. Fremont's charges ntid speeitlcatioos against Col. Blair, including Col.

Blair was arrested the second time for writing tlw letter which he addressed to Adjutant General Thomas, after he was released by Gen. Fremont, aud because he declined to resume his sword and tako command of ins regiment, then on its march to the hattlo field, when or dered by his commander. Captain McKeever, Assistant Adjutant General of this department, has received a despatch from General Fre mont, slating that the charges and specifications against Colonel Biair, published In the Democrat yesterday morn ing, received publicity without his knowledge or sanc tion; that lie has telofcTaphed the Prosidont and General Scott that the act meets his unqualified disapproval, and requesting Captain McKeevcr to investigate the viola tion (if his confidence and Interference with his papers, that the perpetrators may bo instantly procecde.l ag.iin&t and punished. Gen. Scott's release of Col. Blair Is understood to bo peremptory, until such time as the charges are nrido against him.

FROM GENERAL BANKS' DIVISION. I>.wine-town, Md., 0( t. 4,1861. A gentleman, who camo from near Poolesvilto last evening, states that lie heard firing at noon in the iliroo i ion of Edward's Ferry. Ho saw a great smoke arising from the same point, and thinks it was caused by the burning of a warehouse on this side of tho river. Rumors are current that General Stone will shortly lead our ad vauco across tbo Potomac. Tho force under his command 1? boon : trengthened largely of late. Private W. L. Myers, of the New York Nineteenth, was recently tried and sentenced to bo shot, for deser tion, by the General Court Martini; but from tho cvi. donee it appeared that ho was on his return to his regi ment when arre.- ted, and that he was overtakon by liquor, causing him to bo absent longer than his permit al lowed. Tho members of the Court therofore unani mously recotomcnded him to mercy. U|>on hia solemn ; roiniso novcr to d sink any intoxicating liquors, General Banks commuted the sentence into a forfeiture of five liars per month of his pay for ono year, and tho gratified culprit was yesterday returned to his vegiment An MK'.nllrmcd rumor was circulat ed yesterday that tho rebel* had fired into and sunk a canal boat, conveying I heavy baggage for a brigade stationed on tho Upper Po tomac. Tlio Potomac is now passable at several of the fords between tho Great Falls and the Point of Hocks. Tho eni my arc known to have a largely aucmcntod force in tho vicinity of Leosbnrg, but military authorities are of the opinion that it is only a feint, and that oa tlio first dtmoiistration by our force.-: thoy will fall back upon tho Manassas GapMtallroad, and them e down to the Junc tion. No apprehension is felt of any attempt on their part to cross the river, or make any serious att ?? k upon us at long range over the Potomac.
