They belonged to a North Carolina regiment, and report that the rebel steamer Iterrimac has been daily expected to come out and attack the Monitor for the past three days. The rebel gunboat Jamestown made a reconnoiseanee to-day, coming down some distance below Craney Island.

Harnett J The pi'irotn r* arc all fn m *l?e l)ove rrgimenta Ileal W Y () NEW YORK, FRIDAY of (ham have been in the rebel service for the last nine or Un months, and are now rcen listed for the war. The officers say that all the Virginia troops now in tho field have re enlisted for the war. I have conversed with most of the above officers, and find them to be highly intelligent men, and some of them have the manners of highly edi rated and polished gentlemen. On their arrival here they were placed in the city jail, where they will remain for the present. The city jail is a building of enormous proportions, built of stone, with white marble facings. It is about the size and height of the Metropoit. tan Hotel In New York, and its magnificent towers and turrets give it more the appearance of a castle of feudal times than of a prison. On entering its spacious corridors, I found the prisoners grouped around one of (General Dix's clerks, who was taking down their names. The men were not at all disinclined to converse, and talked frsely of the battle in which they had been taken prisoners. They are all comfortably clothed, and apparently in good spirits. They all had Virginia batik notes, amounting, in the aggregate, to $1,S00 or $1,800, but stated that they had uot been paid for the last two mmths. Having hei n allowed to do so, inany of them sent their Virgiuia bank notes out to day and had them exchanged for United Slates money or silver at a heavy discount. At present they have to put up with the common jail fare?brown breud to eat, and molas.-es uud water, under the name of coffee, to drink. But arrangements are being made by the military authorities here by wh ch they will have proper food. Their washing will be douc for them, and evorything else done to render them comfortabic. The men are to he allowed to walk in the spacious yards 01 the jail, and the officers will be paroled and allowed to go about the city. Ihe officers who ware in the battle of Manassas declare mat me Dame or last Sunday was rar Dioomer man mat, and far more hotly contested. They marched from Mount Jackson toStrasburg.acdfromb'trai-burgtouear Winchester, where they met (Sen. Shields' force*, and the battle look place. I infer, from what they said, that It was lien. Jackson's idea that Gen. hanks was endeavoring to form a junction with Gen. MeClcllan at Ceutreville, audlhut, in order to prevent this,or, at least, to retard it, Gen. Jackson returned to Winchester ana fought this battle. The officers speak in the highest tot ini of General Jackson. They suy he never sends his men into buttle, but always leads them, and then the menfollow his example. In reply to my question what the rebel officers generally thought of our generals, the officers answered that General McClel'.an was regarded as the first general in America, with the single exception of General Beauregard. But as to our other generals they claimed thoy were not equal to theirs. Tho war of the abolitionists on McClellan was wutched with the greatest interest at the South. It was believed there that if the abolitionists succeeded in getting McClellan deposed from the obief command there was no man in the North who could conirol the Northern armies in such a way as to defeat the Southern armus. It is generally believed by the officers of the rebel army that President Lincoln now controls tbe movements of the Union armiei, and that the victoria* of those armies, tbe fruits of McC'lellan's plans, are now over?that without tbe controlling mind that has heretofore planned tbe campaign the Union armies will be beaten in detail. During i he whole day tbe jail has been besieged by crowds of persons in sll conditions of life, anxious to see tbe prisoners. None, however, except relatives, are allowed access to tbe inside. Many ladles call in tboir carriages, and, not being allowed to enter, walk past the windows, looking at the prisoners through the bars. SPRING FASHIONS. Opening Dnjr In (he Metropolis.

But yesterday was "opening day" par txct U. ... *ad everything locked gay and brilliant in honor of the occasion. Nature was in her smiling mood, the city in its holiday trim, and the bevies of Udies that fluttered up and down Broadway In a fever of excitement looked their very prettiest. New York fashionables hare not seen such an opening day for a long while, and, to do them justice, they made the most of iL The earnestness with which they pursued their course of investigation from morn till dewy eve, an earnestness that bade defiance to fatigue, and increased with the waning day, was almost sublime. It must be confessed thero is something very pleasant in these exhibitions, something to gratify a refined tests in the artistic arrangement visible even in the minor details of a first class millinery establishment?the delicately tinted feathers, so gracefully disposed; the flowers arranged with all the taste of tho most skllfit] Lcuquititrr, vernal buds shyly peeping as it were from their encircling leaves and radiant autumnal blossoms, openly courting admiration. All these aro pleasant to look upon, whether in reality or its "counterfeit presentment." Yet tbess form but a portion, and a email one, of the attractions of these semi annual exhibitions. Grace of form, harmony of arrangement, beauty of design, skilful combine tion, harmonious incongruities, add their quota to the general effect; and,in addition, there is the excitement of ibe occasion, the life and animation of a joyous crowd, and all the other etceteras that constitute what may be called the subsidiary attraction of "opening day." The strength of these combined attractions might be estimated by any one who walked Broadway yesterday with his eyes open; for at no previous opening have we seen that thoroughfare so crowded. It was literally overrun with ladies, all agog to see the display which, by some unerring instinct, they seemed to know would far surpass its predecessors. What was lacking in quantity was more tbnn mads up for in quality; for the care and taste that on other occasions would bare been spread over many were concentrated In a few. Tbe opening wag later than usual this year,on account of tbo war and the consequent losa of the Southern tr*Am mrAntra liow thin munition of nur civil fttrifa meets us at every turn, bow it is mixed up with every interest, great or email; bow it affects the tide of fashion, aa well as that or businses. Formerly it was necessary to have millinery goods reedy in advance of our seal'n for the earlii r Southern market, and thus, on account of the belles of Charleston and the fashionables of New Orleans, our Now York ladles had to put up with sll lbs inconveniences of premature openings, and select their summer bonnets while a bitter norther was blowing or heavy flakes of snow wore falling. This season there was no such cause in operation, and consequently there was no such discrepancy. The light, delicate looking creations, fresh as spring and bright as rummer, were in keeping with the day, and came just in the nick of lime, early enough for sll practical purp< see, and late enough to stimulate curiosity to the utmost. Therefore, yesterday, there was a great ileal of real business done, for those who went to see had resolved to purchase, and as there wss no ttma to bo lost they did so at once. Formerly these * openings" used to deserve the name, for they were open to all comers. Now they have changed their character, and should rather be designated private exhibitions, for such they are. Admitting all visitors Indiscriminately wss not found to work well, and so the practice was quietly dropped by the tlilt of the profession, in order to save their ideas from being plagiarized for tbc benefit of oilicrs less fertile in invention. The effect of this must be salutary, for it will preserve the individuality of each mserves. and stimulate the inventive faculties ?f the protease nally dormant to exertions tbat must ulliiuut. !y bring their ow n reward.

RK H r, MARCH 28, 1862. caught up with black valval and gold cord; black silk capa, wllb ovarcapa of exquisite rfiantilly lace. Inside trimming a bandeau of black lace, with a bouquet of wild llowurs; marguerites of various shades, from pale pink to deep crimson, so natural tliat you almost fancied you felt the soft green grass benaalb you. That nice attention to details, while subordinating them to the harmonizing of tha whole design, which marks the dilferance between the mere tradeswoman and the artist, was diaplayod oven in the selection of the strings. Another hat of white lace, with three lace fauchous folding over the crown, excited general admiration. Trained around tho brim of the hat, with as much csre as a gardener would train a vine, was an ostrich feather of rare beauty, that fell like a shower of "streamy gold" on one side. A bouquet of violet ribbon and one delicate straw colored jonquil, with a few half blown buds of rich uasturtium color, formed the whole face trimming. It would be difficult to imagine anything more becoming or in better teste. This hat aud the one before it had a short fanchon shaped fall of lace attached to the brim, that fell over the forehead and produced an effect similar to the Ma y Ptuart cap. Avery elegant, stylish looking bat, formed of split straw, bound round the brim ami side crown with green silk, and trimmed profusely with black Chant illy lace, was exhibited in Miss Stewart's, as were also the other hats we have described. The inside trimming was air exquisite combination or flowers, lace and ribbon, forming altogether an indescribable bouquet, wblch was arranged a little to one side, the spaco on the other being filled up wilh a thick rucho of black and white lace. Nor can wo pass over a Leghorn hat, trimmed with violet ribbon and straw lace, the Utter anew, rare and very effective trimming; nor a Dunstable bat, bound round with violet and white. The cape, violet silk with lace centre, was trimmed with straw

cord and tassels which crossed and fell below the cape, forming a very graceful effcet. With all the talk about depression of business and tightness of ihc money market, spring and summer hats are just as expeusive as ever, made of as fine materials and compounded with as much tssto as those of lust summer, or indeed of any preceding summer. We most bo understood now as speaking of carriage, opera or reception hats; for hats intended for the street, or promenade bats, as they are called, are marked by extreme simplicity. Webtveeeon some of white lace, trimmed with a half rcaif edged with black velvet, that looked simple and ladylike. Small blue flowers, with tbe stems, which were curlod like tendrils, ox|Hi?ed to view, formed a pretty aud appropriate face trimminf. DRES8E?. Id drees goods we have uothlng very new to chronicle; but the eye, accustomed so long to dark aud heavy winter fabrics .rests with all the pleasure of novelty on those lighter and gayer materials which speak so eloquently of coming summer, with Its train of rainbow colored flowers and insatiable mosquitoes. Of course our side' walks are still swept by sombre hued dresses; but, ett reram he, the store windows are brilliant as parterres, and with the glimpse they afford into futurity we can see that there Is a good time coming for the ladies of New York i As we possess the "opon sesame" to all these temples of fashion, we will use it for the especial behoof of our fair lady readers, whom ws will place an couranl du jour in these all Important matters. First, ss to the materials: We have all the usual summer varieties of dress goods? silks, muslins, organdies, foulards, poplins, end those numerous nameless mixtures with which the market is flooded. Foulards will be very mnch worn this season; they are of a superior quality and handsomer patterns than ws are accustomed to sss in this material. We are glad to see that small figures still prsvafl la dress goods, and that the large and prontmte styles aro not allowed to obtrude themselves on public attention. We have seen one or two of the latter, with a modesty that is no at all characteristic of their style, peeping out ftom among their favored rivals; but the total disregard with which they were received will be no inducement to storekeepers to force them on the public. Shepherd's pleid will supersede the grey dresses of last year for travelling. There is one noticeable feature about dresses this season, and that Is the great quantity and expensive character of the trimmings. Lace la the especial favorite on suitable materials. Ribbon and velvet are both very pretty trimmings, end, aorording to the arrangements, may be also very elegant; but that depends entlrsty on tbe taste of the dressmaker. This rage for trimming exhibits Itself most frequently on the skirts; it glvee greater opportunity Tor display, is a larger field for operations, and consumes considerably more trimming than any other part of tbe dress?all good and tangible reasons, no doubt; bat, potent though they may be, good taste wfll reassert herself, and these skirt trimmings, whether loxenge shaped, tabller or puffings, wiUsink into the "tomb of the Capulets." Gored skirts aro still to be seen; they linger ss If loth to depart; but they are not universal favorite*, nor ever will be. Skirls are worn very full and long, especially at tho back, where they form almost a deml train, and flounces in almost every style are universal. There Is no trim mm? on a skirt mat looks se wall as these tarns flounces, whether one deep flounce or a host of small ones be chosen. The sleeve allows aa much latitude of choice and presents as many candidates for popular favor as the skirt. Indeed we never remember to have seen fashion holn so light a rein over her sub,arts before. The leg of mutton sleeve Is a very pretty Btyle,and bids fair to be popular. Tho puffed sleevo, which was so great a favorite during the winter, will scarcely retain its place In ttpxuminer; a cooler sleeve will be moro desirable in July. During all seasons the flowing sleeve holds tin place,aud In all the mutations of fashion, which haa swept away and obliterated so many styles, the flowing sleeve Is still to be seen triumphant over msny a younger favorite. The puffed flowing sleeve, a kind of compromise, or rather, we should say, an amalgamation sleeve, is one of the prettiest of its kind; and the diamond sleeve Is also very popular. This is a loose sleeve, Slashed at the bottom and fastoned Into a band at the wrist; through these openings, which are diamond fhaiied, puffings of lace, or a rich undor sleeve, are exhibited. Wherever trimming can be disposed on the sleeve it is put: the favorite atyle, a la Qrttpit, is the most used. The corsage is made high to the throat, and plain; but we sometimes see a 1'otnpadour waist, and there are Indications that bretellesand berthas are to be restored to favor, or trimmings so disposed us to form berihas.

Now, by this arrangement the skirt will be a? good as new, aud will look bettor at Inst thsn It did at fii <t. In mantillas, the summer styles have not appeared as yet, and with reference to them wo can only repeat what we said last week, that they are made of light cloths and narrow plaid, and of all shapes and sices, from tha long circular, so much In favor last year, to the short sacqtie or basquioe, which has already made ite appearance on our thoroughfares. A* a general rule, mourning hate are the same in shape and general arrangement as their gayer colored contemporaries. They follow the same laws, are governed by the same Influences, and, generally speaking, are reproductions ef tbe others, allowing for the modiOcaiioni and toning down and absence of color necessary to fit them for tha aad and sombre purpose to which custom has assigned ihem.

The rebels are confident of success, and say they have a good road to Trenton and other points, by which they can escape whenever they choose. They have plenty of provisions. Three rebel steamers, loaded with troops, were seen watching the shore, to prevent communication from here. The total number of the enemy's transports Is eleven. Two or three balloon aaeensions have been made by Captain 8teimer, but the weather was too thick for favorable observation. Chicago, March 27,1662.

Tha rebel steam transports were flying around down the river like mad all day yesterday, and it was surmised that the rebels had forced Rope's troope back from the river at New Madrid, and ware now abdicating the island; but I am more inclined to the belief that the movement waa only a ruso to deceive us about some new mancuuvre of their own. All lost night bright signal lights were biasing upon the islaud and at the main shore batteries, and there are a thousand surmises as to their meaning. I do not think that the signal!1 amounted to anything, especially aa betokening mo\ ernvnts of the enemy, though many of the stni Uffinre seemed to consider tbat the ltghta were significant enough to warrant them in changing their positions somewhat, changing the orders of the night, aud inciting them to renewed vigilance, lest a night attack by the enemy In force deprives us of the use of a few of our mortars and transports. ine wrmuer una uiuruwj; is mir. t\oi a Dream sura the air nor a oloud obfcures ibo sunlight.

We have been somewhat amused during the last two days at the tenacity with which the Northern press clings to tho statement that the rebels have evacuated their stronghold just below us. It may be so; but if it is? to use the chaste and classic phraseology or the Bowery?"I don't see it." On Friday we received the Northern journals, announcing that "Island No. 10 is ourl," and that, too, when three rebel batteries were playing upon our fleet, and giving us the most solid assurances that there were a "few more of the same sort left." Soma of lb* iwdm on shipboard at the receipt of tblc prccioua bit of information ware really laughableFor inatascc, one which I witnessed on tbe deck of the Caroodelet. Tbe neweboy bad inat left a quantity of papera containing tbe news, wben Captain WaJke came on deck. Immediately half n doien tara ruabeduplo him, and, aaluting in aailor atyle, caked liberty to take tbe yawl and go aabore. "What tort" aatd Capt. Walk#. "Why, air," replied Jack, 'tbe papera aay tbat tbe rebels have all left, and we want to get come frech grub."

'There,1' raid Captain Walke, "that don't look murb like evacuation, doea it?" "oh, that's nothing,*' replied tbe old salt; "here ia tbe papera for it," and holding up a ilivuri Uimturat, be read over Central llalleok's at tach at the Planters' Home, wherein be publicly announced tbe fact tbat "our brave troopa bare taken No. 10 Inland," and promising still "more vlctorlea." "There," said he, "General ilalleck aaya they've quit, and be ought to know, being aahe'a right at hcadquarlera." I?ut a second shot?a huge abell?falling and exploding still nearer to us, caused the saihra to go he low decks, one old sail observing, as he slid down the companion way, "Well, if them chaps baa loft, they've got a damued odd way of bowing ou't."
