The news from General McClollan's army is full 9f hope for the Union, of glory for the young General himself, and is pregnant with ruin to the rebel cause. The occupation of Yorktown, with *11 its immense fortifications on Sunday, bo rapidly followed by the attack upon and the capture of yniliamafcorg on Tuesday, has eventuated in a rapid ponnit of the enemy which has forced them poroaa the Chickahominy, upon the left bank of Which, at latest accounts, General McClellan had halted his army for a temporary rest previous to pressing on. The rebels had succeeded inc destroying the bridges; but as there are two fords pasy to be trossed, our troops wiH find no difficul ty in continuing the pursuit, and, If necessary, driving the rebels from any intrenched position they may take up there?if, indeed, it be their in tention to make a stand at that point. The graphic Bccount of the fight at Williamsburg, from our spe cial correspondent, which we give to-day, will be read with intense interest. Hancock's celebrated bayonet charge, the electrie effect of General Mc Cleilan's presence at a great crisis of the battle, and the daring charge of a body of rebel infantry Vrosa an open plain, form striking incidents in the leecription. . In addition to the active operations of oar land lorees, we lean that the iron-clad gnnboata at Portrc?s Monroe are by this time participating in the affkir oa the Chickahominy. The Galena, Aroostook and Port Royal started np the James fixer yesterday morning, at six o'clock, to eut off the river communication with the rebels on the Chickahominy. They had passed Day's Point be fore seven o'clock, and heavy firing was heard at that time. Meantime Sewall's Point was being ?vacasted by the rebels, and the Monitor, Nauga t?ick and a fleet of gunboats had left Fortress Mon roe to take possession of the relJfel stronghold on }he Point. We give a list of the killed and wonnded at the battle of Williamsburg, as far as we have been able to obtain the names up to this time. i A despatch reached Fredericksburg, now in possession of General McDowell, yesterday, to the ?Sect that the rebels had evacuated Norfolk. Thus it would appear that evacuation is the order af the day in all quartern. The official repent of Commodore Porter, recount ing the oapture of New Orleans and the reduction of Forts Jackson and St. Philip, is given in another column, together with the official despatch of Cap tain Theodoras Bailey, announcing the victory, and. as its result, in the glorious fact that "the way is clear and the rebel defences destroyed from the Gulf to Baton Rouge and probably to Mem phis." From this it might be inferred that Com modore Farragut has gone up the river towards the latter city. The news from the Southwest is important. A despatch from Cairo yesterday says that three brigades of General Buell's army had seized the portion of the Memphis and Charleston Railroud between Corinth aad the Grand Junction, cutting oil' all communication between the two points. If they hold thiiMection of the road they will com pletely divide the forces of General lieu regard, and render hia position still more dangerous than before, if not utterly hopeless. Some parties recently arrived rrom New Orleans announce that*immense quantities of cotton and tobacco, sugar and molasses were being destroyed all along the river country, from that point to Memphis, both by the planters and the officers of tho rebel government, who were running np the fiver in steamboats, aiding in the destruction of these staples. CO V OB IS*. In the Senate yesterday, tho Honse bill appro priating >30,000,000 for the pay of( the army for ?he year ending Jone 30, 1961, was passed. The ^onse bill making Port Royal, S. C., a port of pniry was also passed. Moasrs. Foster, Doolittle ysnd Davis, were appointed n select, committee, to -%hich was referred the ITouse resolution relative the impoactynent of Judge Humphreys, of Ten giq?Me. The bill limiting thfc number of Major frad Brigadier Generals was passed. It limits the Camber of Major Generals to thirty, and of Briga diers to two hundred. Mr. Sumner off-red a reso lution, which lies over, declaring thai it j9 ioexpo* tfient to inscribe on the Colors ot re^i^ents the victories won over our own citv.uns. The bill establishing a Department of Ag ficnl'.ure tras passed. The bill providing f,,r fit" cviiceUwo of iaxes ot lauds ia insurrectional,! k di?lricU wtvi explained by Mr. DoolitUe. and then laid auilo till to-day. The bill relating to the selection of Jurors for the District of Columb a wa# pasaod. A bill to abolish the office ot Marshal of the Dis trict of Columbia aad establish thai of Sheriff' was introduced by Mr. Halo. Both these last named measures are designed to punish Marshal Lam on for his failure to propitiate the radicals with regard to fugitive slaves. The bill provid ing for the eduoation of colored c hildren was taken up, and an amendment adopted, repealing the black code of the District of Columbia. The Senate then adjourned. No bn^iues? of general importance was trans acted by the House of Representatives. Mr. Love joy called up bis bill to secure freedom to all per sons within the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal goverrtment to the end that freedom may remain forever the fundamental law of the land, and in ail places whatsoever, so far as it lies within the power or depeuds upon tke action of the government of the United States to make it so. A motion to lay the bill on tho table was negatived by a vote of tifty against sixty-five. MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. We have news from Hayti dated at Port au Prince on the 15t'x of April. Tho attitude of Spain was very threatening, towards Hayti, on aocount of her claim of one of the old ter ritorial boundary lines, which enters between the two parts of the island like a wedge. Prance did not appear so well inclined to aid the Haytiens as she formerly professed to be, and mnch trouble was anticipated. The Haytiens think that the open violation of the Monroe doctrine will induce the United States to interfere in behalf of the republic. Coffee was abundant, and prices had declined. It is likely that a Haytien war ship, having a number of aristocratic notabilities on board, will soon touch at New York, on her way to Prance. Rev. Dr. Bellows and vife, of this city, with nineteen young ladies, arrived in Baltimore on the 6th inst., en rv.Ue for Fortress Monroe, where they will attend on the sick and wounded soldiers brought to that station. Granada, to which point it is reported General .-Mansfield Lovell, with his New Orleans rebel sol diery, has retreated, is in Yalabuslia county, Mis sissippi. It is at the junction of the Jackson and Ohio and Memphis and New Orleans railroads, about midway between Memphis and Jackson, and equidistant between the eastern and western boundaries of the State. Governor Buckingham, of Connecticut, deliver ed his annual message to the Legislature on the 7th inst. The document enters largely into the discussion of war matter*, and the causes, pro gress and present condition of the rebellion. The Governor says Connecticut has furnished thirteen thousand five hundred and seventy-eight fighting men to the government, of whom two thousand three hondred and forty, being three months men, have returned; two hundred and twenty-eight were discharged, one hundred and ninety-one killed in battle, and thirty-one resigned?leaving still in the service ten thousand seven hundred aad eighty eight. The subject of military instruction in the publio schools was again brought up at the meeting of the Board of Education held on Wednesday even ing. The merits of Quaker guns as suitable wea pons with which to arm our school boys were fully discussed, and after a lively debate it was de oided to make inquiry as to the expense which will attend the procuring of real guns, with bayo nets. According to a statement of one of the mem bers, we shall soon have an army of five thousand sohoolboys, who, we may rest assured, will glad ly lay down their books and slates to take up arms in defence of the Union. The cue of Haynes, first mate of the Nightin gale, was submitted yesterday evening to the jury, under the charge of Judge Nelson. The jury had not agreed at the rising of the Court, and Judge Nelson informed the Marshal that if they came to a conclusion before ten o'clock hist night Judge Smalley would come down and take their verdict; if not, they should be locked up until morning. There not being a quorum of ..the Board of Al dermen present last evening. President Henry de clared the Board adjourned to Monday evening next. The Amorican Bible Society, the Five Points Mission, the New Tork State Colonization Society, the American Congregational Union, and the Deaf and Dumb Asylum, held their anniversary meet ings yesterday; but the all-absorbing news from the armies in the field occupies all our space, and we are again obliged to bold over our reports of their proceedings. An adjourned meeting of the Commissioners of Publio Charities and Correction waa held yester day. From the weekly statement it appears that 2,080 persons were admitted to the different insti. tutiona during the week ending on the 3d inet.( making a total of 7,111 remaining there on that date?a decrease of 110 on t^e preceding week: The cash receipts from the 25th of April to the 8th of May inclusive, amounted to $401,041 21, in which sum is included $100,000 received from the City Chamberlain, and $300,000 from the Comp troller. The cotton market was quiet yesterday. Scarcely enough was doing to establish a basis of quotations. Dealers seemed to be In some degree at a pause, and the views of holders and buyers were so wide apart as to check sales. The former continued to manifest confi dence in the article, while buyers were confining their purchases to small straggling lots at Irregular prices, while desirable lots of any material size were held with Srmnees. Tho sale* embraced about 130 a ISO bales, on the basis of 26Xc., with some lots reported at 27c. Orders wero plenty, and could not be filled at 36c. a 25Jv The flour market was heavy and lower, with sales at a decilne of 10c. per bbl. Wheat was lower and nominal, while salus were quite limited. Corn wu heavy'and tower, with more d?ing at the concession. Wentern mixed sold, In store, at 53e. a fr|<\, and at 55c. a j?c., delivered. Pork was active at unchanged prices. Sales of mose were made at $13, and of prime at $10 a $10 ISM- Sugars were firmer and J,'c. per lb. higher, with sale*, IncltKtmg New Orleans by auction, or about 2,200 Uhdi.. with 30 boxes and 6,000 bags. Coffee waa quiet, freight* were Urm, with a fair amount ef en gagemenls. RjsrmM.vo Good 8smb of tiik Suith.?The cordial reception that General Prentiss an<l his fellow prisoners met with in Memphis shows that the Union feeling in that city is stronger than wa? supposed. The ?Tenta that hare taken place at Pltt&buxg Landing and New Orleans have probably brought home the conviotion to the minds of most people in that city that the rebellion is nearly played out. The General and his party wero fairly loaded down with presents, and in return for their acts of kindness he made a speech, in which ho told the crowd some bold truths about tho deceptions prac tised upon them by the rebel leaders. These statements, notwithstanding that the Provost Marshal was present, were loudly cheered, showing that tho public mind ia Memphis is alrsady prepare^ agd wpng tftnsfar back to "protection ofthToTdflag. The *sfBVchesring symptoms arebsing everywhere manifeetod in North Carolina, and as soon as ths people of tho other revolted States are assured of aid against their oppressors thsre is no doubt that this revulsion of fteljng will become general. This being Hie ease, we nfted have bui little Tear of the guerilla operations with which it is threatened to prolong ths war. The Union men of the different States, as soon as tlejr get arms in their hands, Will be able to '.aWe tare of, the?e ma; auders. Tlir iirbvi ilout la Vlrjiljtia?A Ulltvlvlnf View of tilt) UebtUiun. General MoCU'Uan ia vigorously pushing forward bid victorious columns upon the re treating and demoralized forced of the onomy chargod with the defence of Richmond. Ou Sunday he entered Yorktown; on Monday he was in front of the enemy'b works at Williams burg; on Tuosday he parted over them aud into the ancient little city; on Wednesday we find him ton miles beyon d, on the left bank of tho Chickakouiiuy; and on Thurs day our only doubt as to the remainder of his inarch upon Richmond is whether it will be still disputed by the routed rebel forces of General Jo. Johnston, or whether, without fur ther resistance, they will abandon their Con federate capital and the State of Virginia. In this connection, our latest news from For. tress Monroe satisfies us that the " Old Do minion " is already virtually redeemed and restored to tho Union ; that from Richmond to Norfolk the rebels are under a panic which will speedily rid the State of their presence; and. better still, that their removal from Virginia will soon be followed by their complete dis persion, whether they attempt to pass out into the cotton States by way of North Carolina or East Tennessee. While the Catena and several of our gun boats have passed up the Juuea river, to attend to tho rebel army of the peninsula on that side, our readers will be gratified to hear that the Monitor and the Stevens battery have led the way over to Sewall's Point for a final settle ment with the Morrimac and the other rebel defences of Norfolk. The reported evacuation of Sewall's I'oint, however, would seem to in dicate the evacuation of the city under a pre concerted movement for the absolute abandon ment of the State, with such forces, means and munitions of war as the desperate leaders con cerned may be able to cirry off. It matters little, however, what their designs may be, for the inevitable result, close at hand, is the cap ture of every fragment of the armed forces of this rebellion in Virginia, or their expulsion from the State. The splendid achievements of our naval forces of the Mississippi river, resulting in our occupation of New Orleans, have contributed much to the demoralization of the great rebel army of the East The loss of New Orleans to Jeff. Davis and his confederates Is thus operating to the fall of Richmond, as their loss of Nash ville precipitated the evacuation of Manassas. In the same way Gen. McClellan's occupation of Richmond will operate to break up and dis perse the great rebel army of the Southwest, under General Boauregard, or so to demoralize it as to turn it over without much further bloodshed into the bands of the irresistible army of General Halleck. East and West, we have thus before us a dissolving view of the broksn-backed rebellion, which fully justifies our oft repeated opinion that it will be among the exploded con spiracies of the past, before the fourth day of July. Our brave soldiers and sailors are prov ing themselves too much, net only for the armed traitors of the South, but for the dis union schemes and intrigues of oar abolition conspirators of the North, East and West, over the field of this rebellion. The day of ? great deliverance is at hand. A H?w Cuu Belli Bttwcta Kit rope and America. It is remarkable that, with all the pains we take to behave ourselves property, we are con stantly offending our transatlantic neighbors in some way or other. Tho dust has not yet had time to settle upon the voluminous diplo matic correspondence which satisfactorily arranged the Trent affair?Mason and Slidell hare not yet completely recovered from their surprise at our unexpected return of their per sons and baggage to the custody of England? and already we/discover that our interference with the London Times correspondence, and the return of Bull Run Russell to the British isles, hare incensed all Europe against us, and given England a new casus belli. In yesterday's issue we published Russell's valedictory and explanatory letter; but we wero unable to place before the public the London Times' editorial, the remarks of the Paris I'ays, and the comments of other Eu ropean journals upon Russell's dismissal We hesitate to print them even now, fearful of the effecta of such sanguinary articles upon the terrified inhabitants of tliis barbarous and mob-governed country. Like the war horse of Job, they breathe fir* and fury, threatening''and slaughter. All Eng land is of course hostile to us upon Russell's account, and the gun manufactory at the Tower of London is busyvat work, the Warrior is preparing for sea and the export of saltpetre will be again prohibited. Tho gun manufac tory of the Tribune, th? aid of the Monitor, and the supply of naltpetre in the Mammoth Cart, are our sole defences. The press of France has taken up England's quurrel, and the Emperor promises to send the Gloire, the I'longeur and a regiment of awful Zouious, old friend! of Russell and Teterans of the Crimea, to assist in demolishing us. Whether or not Russia will join in the attack is still doubtful. The Czar waa our very good friend during the Trent affair; but this is a matter of so much greater moment that we are afraid he wiH think it bis painful duty to take ft hand in at our chastise ment. Russell left this country In the steam ship China, carrying his own carpetbag, and without a friend to bUJMjim goodbye. He is coming back in a mail-clad man-of war, at the head ofjjie combined navies and arm)as of En robe. We are*o be wiped out, and there it no fcilp for it Let up fay our prayers, and die an comfortably and with a* Uttle extra trouble an possible. The government offioials who have brought this trouble upon ua have incurred a terrible responaibillty. Who they are and how the thing came about the mighty Rnasell is kind enough to tell us in his parting epiatle, and we therefore Invite attention to that doleful document. It sesms that, after various appli cations, General MeClellan told Russell that he might go with the army, if he would pay for his own board and washing. MoC ellan, Uu foro. is not to blame, aud we are gladI to know it Um-sell pfcpared himself with several poctet piste*. of different varieties, for friend, and foes, and then embarked uponta govern uieut transport, lu company withGooueU - e villo aud Fletcher, and Laptain L Amy, that crack corps of England-which we may hoon sec here to our sorrow?the uri^r.u Soote Fusilier Guard. Just as the party were drinking bon voyag* in * bottle of champagne, General V.,iVUct ordered Kussell to varno* the transport. Kussell produced an inviUUou from General MoGlellan lor him to go with the army. Geueral Van Vliet produced a much

more pressing invitation from Secretary Stao ton for him to stay away. Kussell to accept Stauton's invitation, shouideml his trunk. lcUeed his hand to his friend*, went back to his hotel, and wrote a letter to President Lin coln, a letter to Secretary Stanton, a letter to General Marcy, aud another letter to I ie sident Lincoln. Secretary Stanton did no reply. General Marcy was equally kind. President Lincoln answered by his I rivate Secretary that he was "disinclined to overrule a decision of the Secretary of Vfcr, founded ou what appear to the Secretary eonsidera Ions <rf high public importance." Kussell priats al these letters; and, although we regard hie -t epistle as tho death warrant of the nation, wo cannot help smiling at the manner in which this peuuy-a-liner attempts to connect his name with tho names of our President, our Secretaries, our generals, S. A. K. tne Comte de Paris and the officers of the Scots Fusilier Guard, as if to show tho folks at home that Le had been in good society for once, and add the endorsement of noble names to his plea that he is a martyr to the truth of history. But, to return to our muttons, it is Sccrotary Stanton, then, whom we have to thank for this contemptible fuss about a London reporter. To his incivility we are indebted for the threat o the London Ttmts that henceforward Europe shall know nothing about our civil war. e owe to him tho credit of provoking the sneer that llussell was sent away because he oould not be punished, as could correspondent* of American papers, if the reports were distasteful to the Secretary ot TYar. Mr. Stanton has buwied his fingers very often by meddling with the pres., and we cannot congratulate him, his ad visers and abetters, upon the result of his wrangle with Russell. The idea that he ha. ever controlled the American press is simply ridiculous. He has written a great many bun combe orders; but his orders have amounted to nothing, and have been useful only as excuse* for lack of enterprise in Bmall fry P?P?"> which could not have obtained or published the new. if Secretary Stanton had remained out of Washington all his lire long. If Russell should have been sent out of the country it ought to have been done when Russell waa doing real harm, not when his lies were exposed, hb character understood, his teeth drawn, and his misrepresentations lost sight of in the glorious blaze of Union victories. The American press is quite able to take care of iteelf and of any foreign interlopers, and the sooner our govern ment relinquishes the bogus pretence of con trolling it the better. This belittleing nation by p.j!2?0UAj arrayfe* it against a man like Russell is perfectly absurd; and it Russell heads the forces of England and France, and comes over, like Bombaates Furioso, to anni hilate us, we had better at once apologize and beg for quarter, without stopping to show fight in bo ridiculous a cause. ^ Thk Antt-SkTvukt Socikty AcuiN.-The Anti-Slavery Society took another pull at the bellows on Wednesday evening. We gave an abstract of the speeches yesterday. Mr. Theo dore Tilton, one of the editors of the hrirptud ent, and noticeable only for bis evident attempts to get a little notoriety by wearing Henry Ward Beecher's old clothes, and adopting Henry Ward Boecher's east off opinions, made a very silly speech, and distinguished himself by quoting a Latin sentence without under standing its meaning. Wendell Phillips, who is good for any number of speeches daily, and does all the oratory of the society by the job, followed the twenty-fifth rate Beecber in a spicy lecture. Phillip* attacked President Lin coln, Secretary Seward, and Andy Johnson, ot Tennessee, and wound up by assaulting Par son Brownlow. Phillips had better let Brown low alone. The Parson ia coarse, tough, vulgar, honcstChrbtianman whose good, loyal heart redeem, hi. bad language. Phillip, i- ? clever, polished, refined, educated, gentlemanly fanatic, who* heart is a. black as the negroes lie PW^es ? love, and whose treason is a. abhorrent as his eloquence is attractive. Phillips may have the advantage of Brownlow in manner and elocu tion; but if the comparison isextendedo hearts, the purpose, and the lives of theie two men, we think Wendell ritlliJp* will Had ttvtry odious. ^ Thk Rkuoiock A\\i\i?rsarik8.?Tn? jwligions anniversaries, with whioh 'this city has bt>#n blessed for the past few (lays, arc now nearly concluded. la 11 pecuniary point of riew they havo been \ ery. and deservedly, unsuccessful. There is no greater lmmbupr on record than these annual u-^duibl y* of vagabondizing parsons and se?"ly phii ;?utli rapists, who coine here to pray money ?u> -f r!pockwts of simple people. So far from ? -cornpllshlng any good, the moneys collected a th<-<e anniversary meetings support only a -?i ??i idle, worthless ranters, who are too lazj to earn their own livelihood, except in this *wiudiiug manner.

Ordinarily such a dismal failure to accomplish anything wonld be the ruin of any organization; bui when people dabble with religion tbey seem to lose their commen tense; and so they have gona on, giving largely and receiving no re turns. This year we are glad to notice that the war baa out off the supplies of the pious anni versary beggars, and wo hope that they will suffer accordingly.
