Yesterday ?as a busy day Tor tbo good folks of Berlin' tlie festive event which for the last three or four week* has occupied tin Ir thoughts to the exclusion of everything est'?tbo reception (?inA<iunp, literally "hauling in") of tbslr M tjt'snri tlio King and Queen, ou thoir return from tho coronation at Koxoiiigsberg?came off w 11 h great splon dsr and si ccefs, slid favored by such wea'hor as is rarely tnst will) In thete latitudes so late In the seafon. Tbo sun rose without a cloud, and at the first Mush of day tbs sire ts be mine alive with human beings?men, women and chi.d en?all drected In thoir best, and crowding and Jostling each other in their eagerness to arrive at the scene of action. Be tween eight and nine o'clock the corporations began to deflls along the principal thoroughfares, with flags and emblems of their trados, ami with bands or music play ing "Ick tin nn freusse," and other patriotic and national airs. There were the carpenters and joiners, and brick Isyers and glaziers, and blacksmiths, and locksmiths, the butchers, bakers, brewers, tailors, shoemakers, bar bers, hairdressers, fcc., fcc., ancient guilds, many of Which wore incorporated four or five centurlos ago?and bars performed a prominent part In the medieval hit. tory of the city?elding sometimes with the Electors against the robber m blos of Brandenburg, and some times defending their privileges against the Electors them selves. The utr.-eis along which they passed were lined with spectaiois; many of the houses had been unroofed or the windows taken out, so as to adbrd tbs 'nmates a full view of the pageant, and at the corners and In the squares capucloua tribunes had been erected for the acc< mmiv.aiion of those who had not bairn able to secure a window. O i tne Alexander's platz an immonse triumph >1 arch was n ared, ado. ned with ths s: ma of the city (tlie haar rampant), From vM Mil is said to bare derived its name. By som* mistake the besrs were painted yellow, which gave th -ni thn appearance of largs terrie s: but a brown coaling was added in time. Slid mads lhem look very bnarii-h and imp cing Near the triumphal arch the one hundred and twelve white robed damsels we ediawn p, of whom two detachm nt* of flv? ?at h, head-d by tho daughters of two Htadtrotha (town councillors) weru to present pt>etical addresses to the King and Quoen, while the balance formed a kind Df tableau etixJfil in the background?an ar rangement, by the bye, which has nearly caused a atrlke among the hundred less favored virgins, who com plain that thoir more fortunate companions were selected, ?atm acoonat of thalr itipsrtor beauty and aoootnpllait ments, but only In consequence of their connection with tho Fathers of the I'itv. and that the whole affair v.-a* a ?Pame'nl Job slid a grievtma wrong done to tho men is of the fair hundred. At the Frankfort gate, where the royal travelers were ex"ecl?d to arrive, a temporary saloon was Altai up for thoir recept on, and here the whole pre. cession baited, the corps of m muted citizens at their head, and the municipal authorities stationed just inside the gate. It was about noon when a salvo of 101 guns announced the approach of the roya1 cortegt. The Ki> g a;i]?eared on horseback, surrounded by the princes of bis lions# and a posse of generals and aids do camp, aud, preceded by two troops of culra stors and a oonfiany of garde* ducor/ji, with slan lards flying aud lrumi>ets emitting no very me lodious soun is. His Ma esty looked we.l, though rather fatigued and slightly I) shed, either with exercise or with pleasure at his reception, which was certainly moil en thusiastic; the sboi.t raU *1 at bis appearance by the as sembled thousands was su deafening as to drown even the hoarse b ay of the trum|>ets. He was M owed by two ?qtiorrie* n horseback, and then came the Queen and Crown Prlnc ss in their state carriage?a wonderful ma chine i>i quaint and rococco exterior, and almost a cen tury i M It wits built for Frederick William n., the grandfather of the present King, and bad not been used since tho year 1703, hut has now been thoroughly reno vated Mid lilted up with profuse splendor. The body of the c iaeh is richly gilt, the roof rests on slemfer columns, the sides or* of plate glass, and only the back of wood. The i oof is surmounted by a golden helmet, the four cor ners are ornamented with carved eagles, the box In sup ported by eagles, with gxrlsnds of (lowers in their beaks, and covered wi:h a hammsrcloth of red velvet, tho regal arms on esoh side, embroidered In gold and sliver, with the addition of laurel and oak branches. The wheels are paiatad scarlet, but with such heavy gilding that the original color can hardly bo distinguished, The Inside of the carriage is lined with white satin, nianu nurtured expressly for the pur|>ose, the patt"rn ?bowing the *tar of the black sigle, encircled with arab MOM. In this gecrge<uiii vehicle tit* mature figure of the Queen and I be girlish formsf Print ess Victoria were seen in their coronation robes. the former with her usual proudly affable mien, the latter t.Uovr Tul and unaff.-cted as ever, and evidently a greater favorite thMi her stately mother in law. They were ?scorted by a second company of the pttrds liu corps, fol. lowetl by several carriai 1, with tbo female attendants of the two royal ladle*, ?i J a third troop of c.uiraaslers brocght up the proooe*lon. On entering the gato the King wa* received by the municipal authorities, with the ehler burgomaster at their head, who addressed him In a long and complimentary speech, couched in the mag niloquetil style peculiar to tho dignitary. M. Krenawick is always prolix, and the copious stream of his oratory would undoubtedly have i>et>u a hea\ y infliction on the King, If these Illustrious petsonageF were not In ured by long practice to endure such trials with booming patience and resignation. However, everything must come to an end, and as did the harrangue of the worthy burgomaster, 'lb* King replied iu a lew brief but ei tremely grai too* sentences, and theproi'sslon then moved on, and passed slowly along, amid the hurrahs of the population, to the Alexandria plat/. Here the King -was waylaid by Miss Ester aud her live young ladle* in white, while Miss Hanecker and the other Are arrested the progress of the Vu<-en, and tho remaining hundred Stood at a distance, looking, and probably f?e4iug, rather cold; for after all, it I* October, and garlands of roees are not the mo*? eHgibl" headdret-?e?, nor white baiiri ?hoes tho mint comfortable chutts/urr fer 'Hit of door ex ?rcise iu this sea^oa. About two T. M. tbe royal pair and their suite alighted at the Settlor aad entered their apartments, reappeai i.g soon after on the balcony to*h<>w thsmse'ves to the crowd assembled in the A bl?s* platz, by whom they were received with renewed ebullition* or toval enthusiasm. At three everything was over; their M Jcstle* retiretl to th" inmost recesses of lUe (al*/e, to ret?oso I rt4n the fatigues 'if the day; the spectator* dis persed in all direction*, well pleased with what they hail seen, and ia a short i 'me Uie streets were ><nly enlivened by the trade* marching back to tlimr places of r*nd< /. vous. During the whole proceeding liardiy a single po liceman was visible; order was maintained by the citi zens themselves, and not the slight*.-1 disturbance or ac cident occurred to mar the general harmony. As soon as evening began to close In a blare of light proclaimed the commencement of a grand llhiinlnstloii. The oldeet inhabitant* of this capital do not re'?||ect a simitar display. Not only tho I.indeu and other principal streets, but every lane and alley in the most remote nut skirts of the town, was radiant with variegated laini>e, Herman aud Prussian banners floated from tho housetops, the statue of Victory oil the Hrandcnbum gate poured forth a flood of electric flame, and tlio City Hail, the palaces of the princes aud ministers, the hotels of liie foreign ambassadors (???i>e< iallv tlial occupied by the Ituke of Mag"tita),and many private bttildinis presented a spectacle that quite dazzled the eye-; hi d made one Wug for a little darkness. Between tight and nine tbe King and royal fuml'y <1 o e through tiie street' t.> view the illuminations, antl were received with the same cheers that greeted them in the morning In short.

To return to the ball room. I feur there It no Court circular published In lioiilgaborg,so that the world ra st for thu present remain In ignorance with res|? et to the brilliant toilettes lust night displayed. The ladies present were few, however, compared to the men. Most of them stationed themselves In the feoxes of the tl eat re, the front of which waa very prettily draped and a lorni'd, whilo gilt figures at intorvals a .pported vases of shrubs unil tlowera. Above, and a'lnost among these leaves and blossoms, appeared the semicircle of ladies, at tirnts two or three deep. Thus they had an excellent view of the bull, and SSpeolally of the stage, and from below were themselves easy and agreeable to contum plate. The majority of the dresse* were while. As to tha men, the/ ware one maaa of uniform. Every body In this country se ma to have a uniform. Decidodly It is a military nation, and loves to look soldierly. Even the rittmytUbefitHr, literally knights proprietors or estates, the country squiras of Prussia, have a right, which they last night availed themaulves of, to ap pear in martini attire, with epaulets big enough for a geueral-in-chief. There were military uniforms of all arma and sundry countries, and diplomatic and consular coatumea lu great variety, and an amount of atars and oroasen and broad ribands that was perfectly dazzling. The plain black coat and white oravat were the exception* to the ru e. One curious to study the catalogue of modern ordors of knighthood would havo found a flue Held of observation In last night's ball room. Among the various distinguished or Illustrious foreign ers who were gazed upon with curiosity and interest, the Duke of Magenta occupied a prominent place. The French Kmperor'a Envoy Extraordlnai y has u?me here, as you are aware, in a atyle becoming the umbassador of a nation whose government has no occasion to fear par liamentary criticism of extraordinary expenditure. His carriages, his plate chests (Ailed with new tab u iter vices, manufactured for th> ? ocaalon in all haato by re nowned!*! isian artificers), his liveries, hm horses, hU ?Mi <S camp and attaches, hla vaets aud running to it men (to the number of several dozens), his ballroom to be built a) iterlln, nud for the c nslruetion of which ola borate materials and hun Ireds of workmen havo arrived there from Paris?all these thiugs have supplied the Prussian papers- with wondering and admiring paragraphs for weeks |iast. I know not what the Konigsliergers ex pected tlie Marshal to lie like, but I think they have been rather disappointed in bis appearanee?not that it is otherwise iban agreeable, but because they, perhaps, had picl ired to themselves the hero of that bloody light by the 'En..no a- of sterner oountenaiice and more stalworth mould. It ia reutod, too, that some of tbe more naive of the K> nigaberg ladies were surprised he waa not attired In tbe color that bears his name, instead ol in tho dark uniform he last night wore. I regret to have to state, for tl.e information of Mr. Smith U'B Inn, that the closest Inspection did not suffice to discover even tho smallest sprig of s hamrock among tbe adornments and insignia of the McMabon. The royal party remained for a considerable time at the ball. Towards ten o'clock the curtains that masked the greater |*>rtion of tbe stage were drawn back,and dis closed a well paint fed view of the king's favorite resi denru of Babelsbcrg, near Berlin?a delicate attuntion on the )iart of the managers of the festival, which evidently pleaded his Majesty, and which lie cordially acknow lelgod. In front of the painting, which was of tho na ture of a theatrical scene and completely li Jed up the back of the stage, clusters or wax caudles lit up a sump tuous supper, to which their Majesties aud a select pa-ty sat down. The evening's arrangements were excellent, and in every reijuct the ball went off extremely well. Board of Supervisors. A regular meeting of the Board of Supervisors was held j Thursday afternoon, William K. Stewart, Esq., President, ia tbe chair. ! The minutes of the preceding meeting were read and approved. Supervisor Twnn offered a preamble and resolution, stating that, whereas, tbe bills Incurred by the Commie, stoners of Harlem Bridge aud other commissioners, draw ing money from the county treasury, are required to be audited and allowed by the Board of Supervisors befora payment, and there Is no good reason whr the bills of the City Hall Commissioners, for building the new Court House, should not alio be audited by tbe Board of Super visors; therefore, Resolved,That they direct the Comptroller not to pay any bills for work and materials, In suit for (hi erection or lbs new Court House, luilee* the same hive been au' dited by the Board of Su|iervl*ora. The resolution was lost.

Supervisor 1'ikov thought there appeared to be tin Impression on the mind or Mr. 'fused and others that mouoy had been wrongly expended. After Mr. Tweed had disabused him or thin idea, and informed him that he was only desirous of the information for the purpose of enabling him to vote properly ou that subject, the reso lution was then carried.

Thomas, occupied ? position on Rockcastle Hills with 000 raw Kent uckians. The post required a force of 10,000 men to hold It against a well directed attack. Garrard remained there three weeks, suttj.-ct to constant d&uger aud alarm. Three days before Zoliicoffr attacked the place Garrard advised Gen. Thomas definitely of his ap proach, and of the strength1 of the rebel army. The se ventonth Ohio was ordered to move in the usual mode of marching down the Richmond roa 1, to obstruct the ene my in that direction. The Fourteenth Ohio afterwards moved forward from (fcmp Dick Robinson towards Wild cat, with a battery. Its energetic Colonel desired to know whether haste was desirable, aud the General told him no. He mtrched eighteen miles th? flrt-t day. On the second he marched twelve miles, and wont into'camp, but shortly afterwards In received an urgent message from Garrard to reinforce liim at once. Without waiting tor orders from General Thomas, Colonel Stecdman pushed onward, and by forced marching reached tho foot of Wildcat hills by two o'clock next morning?tho day of the battle?having marched thirty - six miles. Meantime Colonel Garrard sent for Cohniel Oobmn and his Thirty third Indiana, at Crab Orchard, an<l despatched a messenger across tho hills toOo'.onel Cou ncil, urging him to hasten from the Richmond road to his assi-dance. The bitter, with great energy and spirit, rut his way through the forests and over apparently imprac ticable hills, and arrived the day before the buttle. The rebel tattoo had been heard the night before at th* foot of the hills below Wildcat. ColonelCoburn arrived Sunday night, and Colonel Steed man, with the Fourteen!Ii Ohio, and Standart's battery, reached the top of tho hUl In the midst of the light, and a few shells from tho deltl pieces settled It. Daring this exciting period General Th >mas wus at Camp Dirk Kohiosou, profoundly unconscious, to all appearances, of tho dire extremity to which his little vangnard was reduced; and it ii an iriconteetablo fart that, but for the energy and independent spirit of the volunteer Colonels of his column, Garrard's com man I would havo been caplured dispersed, or cut to pieces. Kven General Schoepf, a mo. t meritorious officer, was not sent forward to assume command until the eve of the bat tle, aud he was not qualified to direct the troops, because ho wl- totally Ignorant of the position. Before leaving this subject it may be well to correct other misapprehensions reepecting the Wildcat aOair. The Kentucky papers havo given Colonel Garrard credit to which he is not entitled. No one presumes that be claims any besides that due him for taking tho advance, according to orders, and remaining in n hazardous posi tion. He was not only not under nre, hut he wss not in command At all during the fight Colore! I'onusll, of the Seventeenth Ohio, as ranking Colonel, was commander or the post alter lus arrival, until General Schoepf arrived; and the latter with magnamily and wisdom, confessed his wsnt of quslllicattoft to command iu the tixht. and request ed the Colonels t" make such disposition:, as seemed to tli m advisable. Previous to ttu? very hour ol battle there were not troops enough on the ground gpare for the or e i|iatlou of Hanser hill, where ibe first attack wn? made. Colonel Comiell sugh* ."ted that Colonel Cobnrn might spare them, aud (ietieral Schoepf Immediately ordered him to oc cupy the hill with four ocrnpuiM of the Thirty-third In diana. This gallant little band afterwards joined by 860 nioiiulwl Kent'XKj it:tnutry, under Colonel Woolford, and br lour companies or tho Seventeenth Ohio, under Major Durbin Ward. The Colonels to whom the entire credit of the light belongs *eri C'ottnell, Coburn and Woolford. There is no doubt thut Colonel flarrard is a gallant man. but he is not entitled to the Wildcat laurels.

Serenade to General Wool?Patition ami Number of t'e BeteU at Dig Bethel, YorkUmm and Norfolk?Intelligent* from Newport New.<?Movemenli of Troope, <4r., <te. The strangest item of interest occurring hore to-day was a regular old faahionod thunder ahowor, acoompa ?led by considerable lightning. However, at the mo ment I am penning this It has cleared up nicely, with a freah northwest wind blowing.
Last evening General Wool received the compliment of a aerenade from the band stationed at the fort, a> t' n stance of Lieut. Richard Wider, Pout Adjutant; aft i the ladioa of Captain Wm. D. Whipple, Assistant Ai., ;.._t General; Captain Mendenhail, Fourth artillery; I.ieut. Loiler, Major Carlin and others In quarters at the fort, woie alao treated to several One airs. The aorenado lasted until alter twelve o'clock, and sounded very One in the silence of the night. A rebel captured yesterday aftesnoon by the pickets o? the Twentieth regiment, Colonel Weber, representee that be was a deserter, and gave the following Information iu regard to the robol forces at Ve kiown and Big Bethel. He gave his uaiiio an K chardson, an.I atatod that at Big Both' 1 wei e stationed the Third Virginia regiment, Eighth Alabama. First l/mtsiana, one cavufry company of five hundred men unil horses, culled Cobb's Legion, aud fifteen pieces of artille y, consisting of rilled cannon. At Norfolk, where General Benjamin linger commands, Richardson says tUut a 7ouave battalion of Cobb's lnlantry, two Georgia regiments, and the Thirteenth Alabama, the Sccmd Louisiana aud Third Louisiaua are the available forces, besides six gutia ou the river and seven h avy guns utf lutisnchmeuts, are forming the for tillcatious of that place. From Newport N-. ws we have InUlligence that on Mon day a wooding party was sent out, consoling of on* company of the Seventh regiment New York Volunteers, in command of Capta nGable; that they were attacked by rebels, and in the melee lost on* four mule team aud wagon, captured, besides two men, takon prisoners. It seems to bo a fatality that Gei e a! Phelps persistently sends o> t these wooding parties in to small a force, aud, what Is worse, on the same day of the wtsk. The rebuts apparently know when to look for aucb a capture, and it Is only to mount and go at the 'Yankees," aud tbu rebels are certain of capturing a good wagon and mules and on* or two 10*11 as prisoners. If, however, General Phelps would send a sufficient force with these expeditions, and manage to select difTe rent days, these disgraceful scenes would not bo re enact I ed, and our men would tie supplied with wood; whereas, In the presunt state of affairs tbu wooding parlies run away empty handed, leaving cat' I > and wagons to lake care of th'-mselvcs, and having uo other Interest at heart but s morbid selfishness of sell' preservation. Captain P. A. Davis, the efficient Provost Marshal of the Department of Virginia, has considerable business to look sffer in tbe regulation of the contraband*, which, on their arrival, are Landed over to him, and thence transferred to the Quartermaster. This morning a woman named Nancy Itlccy, who walked all the way from Northern Indiana to Bal timore to Join h r hatband, who is a member of the Twentieth Indiana regiment stationed at Hat Iiatteraa, arrived here per boat from Baltimore. Gen. Wool gave orders to the Provost Marshal uot to allow the woman to proceed any further, from which I infer that tbe regim-nt will return here, and other matters connect ed with the loading Ot the 9. R. .Spauldiug strongly point that way. The position of Hatteras Inlet cau be defended by a few gunboats, and it is hardly necessary to keep any men there to contract disease and be washed out of their tents at nearly every rising of the tide. At the Rip Hups or Fort Calhoun, the new commander, M^jor Gustav Iialleday, in energetically engaged in bring i*C order out of chaos, fixing up the officers quarters, and, compiling the prisoners to cleanse their places of rendez vous. About fifty hands are employed by the govern ment to finish this fortiflcatiou. which, when completed, will be one of the most solid aud imposing structures iu the country. The guns mounted thus far ere very for rni' able, aud could resist any force brought against them. The 9. R. Spauldiug leaves here lo-nigbt for Hatteras. OUR NEWPORT NEWS CORRESPONDENCE.

Th <re la much portinenoe In theaa questions, and much re.iaou In thse objections. But experience baa taugnt ua that the questi* ns admit of satisfactory answer, and that th ? objections are not woil lounued. There are, for inatanca, no two articles required by tbe government about w hich more questions have been aaked than about biankata and army cloth. To begin with blankets:?'lhe government Is s ippoaed to be slack about purchasing blank is, because ot some want of adaptation In them loan army standard. Thn Him pie truth is, the government l.aa purchase.! All the blankets it co ild tlnd ia the couutry which bait tbe qualities for wkioh alone bl.nkeisare desirable; and It has aiw ys stood unilously rea ly to buy any others that weio odbied.at prices not absolutely extortionate. It is not true that the govern ment has refused good or fair blanket* from any quarter at piices that co Id bojualifled. It has ref used to buy blankets made ol'juts and waHe, which poshes* noith t warmth, strength nor durability. It has refused to buy, ut about double the i sua!oost, small lots hid awiy iu tune of real public suffering, w.iiting a rl?-e of prices, when, by calling on the pub ic charity, it could ckoout for a we k or two a want which arrivals l. om abroai would Ibun ex tlnani.-h at tlio lair rate of coat. There liai been In t ho country neiher wool enough nor factory |>owc.- ? nntigh to meet the demand for bankets. The government has ordered 3.r>0.000 blankets from abroad which are uow rapidly arriving. It U well known that the demand for blank' ts has raided the home price from about lifty c -uts to sitty five, seventy live anil r -neiglity cents ^er pound of al! wool blankets. Co ild tho government be JunUflud In payii g seventy and eighty cents a pound at b >m* for that which it could import at about forty cents? Hut these importations are ma to last. The stimulus of price is b inning wool hsre from ab*ond. Many mi Is are changing their machinery to manufacture blankets, and the homo supply at good pricos is very soon likely to prove who'ly a equate to ths denial d Meanwhile one house is said to have b. a-'le I of miking $100,000 by the r.ss In wont, a few others In all parts of tbe country a*e not likely to have many tsars shml over tneir losses from having boarded supplies of blankets a little longer than the government would bear. Next, in regard to army cloth:?Ths government has bought ail the cloth in the oountry in any way suited to make uniforms, l^sirable as a uniform color was, ths depart m ut hits felt that the comfort or the soldier was so much more Important, that it has been willii g to buy anythiDg that would cover his nakedness, If It only pro mised to hold together. lu spite of every accommoda tion to the exige: r.y of tbe case, there ars at this mo ment 80.000 enllstsd mm without uniforms. The ds maud for cloth has, of course, greatly raised the ordinary price, and this has been increased by several other un fortunate circumstances. Thus, the indigo crop in India having failed last season, the price of blue dye has doubled. Blue vats are scarce in this country. For woad, which ordinalily sells at Sve cents, as high as sov enty live cents has boen recently paid by a manufacturer, who was obligod to obtain it to complete a contract. Then the unfortunate competition among the Governors of the Mate*, all anxious to recruit men with rapidity, in the market for uniforms. 1l<s lurthor increased prices. For, there being only half a dozen er so of houses In the country dealing vsry largely in c!oth,all army tailors and contractors or agents tor States, are compelled to go eventually to the same parties and overbid aach other. Contracts made at a reasonable price with the govern ment have been (brown up, s'mply because the contract ors were able to make so much better terms with Govern ors, and coutracts in one State have fallen through, it is believed,simply because th.fcontractor ha* found higher prices iu another State. It is known, too, that uniforms already made have been hid away, in expectation of a distressing nee I of them, driving tbe government to pur chase at double price*. Cloth has advanced from seventy five i?pta to $1 2ft per yard, ami, at that price, tha tuilU of the country have beea i wholly unable to meet the demand. Tho government, properly jea'.ons of our home Industry, has delayed or dering cloth from abro?d too long. Aud now that It has ordered 1,200,000 yards, and sent an ugnt abroad with a credit of f SOU,000 to purchase it, we hear inimhevioiis rumors put in circulation?one day that ?800,000 sterling are to be extended abroad in purchasing cloth, and the uexf that all order* for purchases abroad have been revolted by telegraph to Halifax?both rumor* equally fake. Ihe govern ment had Anally to choose botwcou buying abroad itself at fair price*, to a cerum amount, or allowing a few houses to buy abroad, and charge the government a com mission of frmn twenty to forty |>er cent. The imagiuary Interest of our home Industry resolves itself Anally into the MOtaMOl[profits of a lew Individuals on foreign im portations. There is no hostility to home industry in the moderate importation which the government he* autho r/ed. All that the mills of this country oan possibly make of army cloth, as loug as the present army con tinues iu the fluid, will be wanted at remunerative prices. 1 venture to say, that if the mills nr (he country wdl produce cloth enough to clothe the soldier before the importations from abroad arrive, the government would consent to store away every yard of clot It that arrive* on Its orders j?ist gone abroad, and keep It for the next nrgont deficiency. But our mills may do their best, and they cannot steet th* demand fast enough to save the soldier from great suffering ft>r wantol adequate clothing. The artny Is most Inadequately eloihed. Not withstanding the' greatest exertions', thousands of men are yet without warm coats of any kind, while tens of thousands reu.aiu to be supplied with overcoats, and there is positively nothing H? the country to make them of. Are I hoy (o bo suflered to starve wiib cold, for the cultivation of our home industry ? -Alter they are all ouch well clothed they must be re clothed, There ought to be In the govern ment storehouses a uniform apiece ertra for every soldier In the field. Will uot the tulustiy ef the country llnd It self sufficiently tared by the necessity, not to Bud it necessary to free/e a few thousands more of our soldier* in honor of our American mills* Another source of difficulty, in res|*ct of the want of uniforms for our soldier*, even directly In the face of the enemy. is the alleged n<ve?*ity of the recruiting sen ice.

The prlnolpal feature of the new bill will be to make the militia mora efficient, and put It In ahape for active eervica, immediate or othj wise. Evidently the drift of pub ic sentiment tend* towards having a change In the pre?eut policy of electing the Ja diciary. Thia matter will posaibly uoine before the next Leglalature. It will ba remembered, no doubt, that the following waa adoptad by Hie la?t Leglslat re, and referral to the next one?according to the provlalona of the constitution? for ita action al*> ?

The holders are seldom paying over C per cent, and first class paper can be sold at G%. Exchange closed firmly, very few of the bankers being willing to draw. Stocks were dull to-day, without material change jn pricea. The market is kept in a atate of inac tivity by the non-rec?ipt of news from the Boutk regarding the fleet. Aa aoon as intelligence of ? i favorable character is received it is supposed that buyers will operate more boldly; while, on the other hand, the bears trust that news of some die aster will depress prices. At the board to-day (there was but one, as usual on Saturdays,) stocks opened at about the closing prices yesterday, but at the close some of the railway share? were weaker. New York Central declined %, Erie , Toledo % and Rock Island %. On the other hand, registered United Slates sixes advanced %, the fives of 1874 Virginias Y% and Milwaukee anf Prairie du Chien %. Pacific sold at 98?a decline of x/% per cent, produced by sales made by parties who bought at lower prices. After the board the market was dull. The Boston Commercial Btittelin mentions aba A case decision of some importance:? Aa long ago aa 1348 the caahier of the Rank of Bright*^ Mr. Woodworth, was detected in embezzling the funds <* the bank, but for some rea*?u or oth?r proceedings against him were stoppod. Subsequent to the detection of the embezzlement It was ascertained that Mr. Woed worlb had caused to bo discounted at the Faneuil IlsM Rank, in this city, soma $30,000 In drafts on New York, in the name of the Ilunk of Brighton. The then president of the Bank of Brighton, Mr. Stephen Bennett, refused t* acknowledge the responsibility of the bank, and taok shelter under the defalcation of the cashier. The Fatieuft Hall Bank had discounted tho drafts In good faith, and contended tint tho Bank or Brighton was responsible. Hart of these drafts were discounted in Septemlier and part in Octobef, 1H.18. The case was entered at court, with the ablest counsel on both sides. Tho case haa Juet beon decided, and the decree of the court has been en tered for plaintiff, with two per cent per mouth threat, amounting in all to about $35,000.
