From the r< t. ma re hare the Intelligence that all the tram* bet worn llexandria and the front of our Ilnet are runuing again b regular ordr. The army, however, is locked up id mud. The streams are at ill swollen. O 1 Sa'urday night the Rappahannock rose so rapidly that the engineers were compelled to take up the pontoon bridge in order to Bave it.* Ne fears are now ent named for the safety <f the railroad bridge at that point, the river having ftUleo again The guerillas keep prowling round our outposts. On Tuesday they attacked a portion of the Second United States infantry, killed Captain McKee and captured his two lieutenants, near their camp at Nokesville. It was reported that General Loogstreet bad reached Blcfamoad with the greater portion of his army, but the rumor waa not positively confirmed. Genera! Grant paid a flying vtell to Annopolts, and returned to Washington jester day. The Nary Department has received from Admiral Per ter a quantity of Intercepted rebel correspondence, show ing the existence of a reeularly organized "torpedo corps." Some of the Inventions to be used are very cu Nous; among tbem, lumps of coal, or BometDiog that re aembles It, with torpedoes inside to be used with the fuei put on board our vessels. Military affairs at Chattanooga were unchanged on both sides. The Tent.e.-see is rising rapidly after the recent beavy rains. The news from the Southwest is exciting and impor tant The rebel General Buford was beseiging Fort Pillow yesterday. He sent a flag of tructf demanding tbe B rrreuder of tbe place, which was replied to by a refusal on the part of Colonel Lawrence, Thirty-fourth New Jersey, who was holding tbe fort. Tbe steamer Crawford, whtch arriv d at Cairo yesterday, had a large num >er of womea and children from the fort on board , "yom which tbey were ordered off by General Buford Jn^ther arrival at the same place announced that firim? p? going on all day Monday at Fort Pillow, and that tbe Jnion flag was observed to fall during tho action. Three >ousand veterans, en route home on furlough, fortunately arrived at Columbus. Ky. Their presence may shake tbe eonlideuce of tho onemy In their power to elect ranch in that quarter. As we stated yesterday, we have In our p wsessiou the official reports of Generals Grant, Thomas and Hooker, relative to the Chattanooga campaign. These documents together with General Sherman's, received some time since, are very interesting. but at the same time will occupy more space than we have as yet been able to dev >te to tbeir publication, especially as we have had the battln lully described n our columns by our own correspondents. Tbe people, however, are anxious to see how General Grant describes one of his own brilliant campaigns, and we, therefore, publish big report in full lu this day 's issue EUROPEAN HEWS. Tbe Metmsbip Etna, from Qieenstown, reached this port yesterdav morning, and the Peruvian, from London derry , arrived at Portland. Me., at noon. Tbe news by tbe Peruvian is dated to the 1st of April, two day* later. Wneo tbe Etna left Queenstown harbor it was hoped that the steamship City of New York would be got off Daunt's rock. Maximilian was not yet declared Emperor of Mexico. His prospect of succession to the throne of Austria ere ated a difficulty w lb regard to his acceptance of tbe new foreign crown. Tbe new Mexican loan was regarded as complete. Tbe sun of ?3SO.OOO of tbe amouut was to be banded to the French government. The nefotlations for a conference In I/>ndo? on tbe DanoGerman question were progressing favorably. It was not, however, very clear whether tbe position which Napoleon's representatives would take in the assemblage rould be acceptable to tbs other Powers. The military jttuatwn at the seat of war in Denmark remained without my material change ttaribatdi had arrived at Malta, on his Journey to Eng *nd. He enjoyed a very flattering reception when he Ippaared on the balcony o! tbe'.botal. Mowever, there ware some biases beard, which were said to come rrom glQtltADA. Tbe Polish peasants have issued a manifesto against tbe Czar Tbe paper contains a programme of organize tion for tbe raising of a peasant army of a million of meo from tbe ages of sixteen to sixty, who are to asaault Warsaw and the ether Polish cltiee held by tbe Russians. Masr.iol bad been sentenced in France to transports ?loa from that oountry for participating in the conspire- y Main l Napoleon's life. Mazilnt. being a resident of I<on don, will, It?? presumed, consider himself already trans norted from Franoe. The Pari* correspondent of tbe Dublin freeman . Jour.

Oar OomlB| Straggle?IU llagnUadc nut In Hr?|)oiulbUIUfi> If the military preparations now In progress in Virginia, under the supervision of General Grant, shall result in a successful campaign against the rebel capital, the rebellion will have received its death blow. And the blow that destroys the rebellion establishes our country in that position as a nation which she has *eemed likely to lose. Europe must thou recant its too ready requiems ovor the "great repub lic," and the military Towers of the earth must yield us the first place as the greatest of them all; for not only will our government then bars gone through an ordeal that it cannot be pretended that any European government oould go through, but we will also have exhibited a military power equal to the combined power of England and France. All the civil w.sra in Europo have been the merest slt'rmirthes to this great struggle in which Uo p.irta of the Uaitod States have mustered igii'tst one another?a power equal on either Mae to the power of a great nation under the I ropeaa .system. Our own force now under arms?under the Stars and Stripes?is equal io numl?ers. as in every other respect, to the armies as they at present stund, of England utnl France together; and, adding to our own force the rebel force, as the equivalent of any a>t lition V at England and France might make t?> tt.eir forces in a case of great necessity, we are still the equal of those two Powers cotn i-d, and thus certainly entitled to take pre fede ce in military power over any one. An i mense primary military Power will there fore be established in the community of na t >ri? by this single success, and the influence of its existence will be felt in every govern ment in Christendom. And. as our success ?. ain-t Great Britain?our first success -had it* fruit in Kurope in the French Involution, what influence upon the people of Europe may not this infinitely greater triumph of free in stitution* have* But if Grant should fail, it is hardly possible to say what rmnlti may not follow. We would I* loth to recognize even such a defeat as the death blow of our cause. It is certain that the a j.inch qualities of our people, taken as a wtiole, would lead them to rally for even a greater struggle still. Cut it ia also certain that such a defeat would strengthen immensely the factions that exist in our midst, and politi cal anarchy would Hunt the edge of all our tuture attempts And thus it is at least proba ble that this defeat might lead to events that would count us out. (or a hundred years, from the number of great nations. One great dis ruption would lead to lesser ones; we would be broken up into ? community of petty and quarrelsome States, and the great experiment of free government that we have so magnifi cently tried for eighty years would be settled affainat the peeple. We would die the young est of great republics, and our fall would ?trenfthen the hands of despotic power every where, It thu? appcam that tbe struggle upon which ti* art* now about to enter is a momentous one. not only to ourselves, but to the world at large. I? result either way will affect for good or evil tbe future history of tbe human race. It is as d stinct a t-irniag point in human history as were tbe battles of Marathon, of Tours, of Pul towa or Walertoo. At Marathon the possession of Kerope waa decided against tlie despot who grasped all Asia At Tours It was determined whether Mohammedanism or Christianity should prevail in Europe. I'ultowa brought Russia into fhe council of European nations and ne ressitated a new balance of power; and Water loo de. ?!ie po< ion of Europe against lbe people, and in favor of tbe littl** coterie of k ng* that constituted tbe Holy Alliance. Our coming battle is to decide issue* a* great aaany of the*#, sinoe It is to determine whether tbe treat republic of modern times shall stand or fall?determine the existence of a government destined to e*ert a greater influence on the progt<??? of the h i in an race than any other known to hiatory. Tbe responsibilities of the man who commands our armies in this great cnai< are tremendous. an<l the reward of his suc cess will be tlie gre.v> -t within the gift of the people Srf ikiko *4 Om Tiiivsh.

That is a good idea It rarrie? out tbe principle of free speech certainly, lint what a queer medley tbe world would l>e obliged to listen to if the advice were literally complied with, l or instance, suppose Old Al?e should tell what be thought Mboit hi? reriominatlon and tbe men who -eek to d- feat it* Suppose Chase should say what be thought about tbe pros pect of liquidating the indebtedneaa of tbe country* Suppose Father Welles should aay what be thought about tlie rel??-' t rpedoes, or Stanton what be thought about tbe tenacity of tbe rebels in thwarting his fine military combi nations? Suppose the peopls themselves should say in a thundering take what they thought about tbe gross mismsnagemeat of tbe war, tbe high price of living, the daily reduction is tbe value of tbe circulating medium, tbe pinch ing wants to which they are likely to be sub jected in the fbture if things are allowed to ga on in their present reckless way* And. teally, suppose Ben Wood himself shoald say what he really thought about the profit* of newspaper publishing, deprived of tbe Corporation sop! Surely. If all thee* people should aay what tbey actually thought upon the?e *ev*ral sub jects. it would prove a medley that might amuse, if it did not astound, tbe world Stirav? at Vivns* Mr bervh has en deavored to enlighten tbe lb ise of Represen tativea upon his littls m -*ry operation at Vienna, in tbe first year of the war lie say* be bad fieneral Scott * appr ?1 for it aad has bad McDowell's approval for hia conduct else where. Upon whose statement of the case did General Scott approve the Vienna movement? Upon Scbench'i. undoubtedly. As for Mc Dowell. he cannot justify bis own actions, In relation to which be cannot possibly know leas than be knows about Scbem k * Ilia approval is a very small matter, Since He bench la not ashamed to offer such ao eiplanation aa this, what he did at Vienna is not to be wondered It Mohm. Pii.m.- " he le gislature desires to purify Ihe columns of ths New Yorh daily papers and to prevent the appearance of im moral advertisement*. Tbe Albany pundits will do very well to take some of their own moral pills. There is one column in tbe New Yorh papers whose character they enn oontrol, and that is tbe column which contains the pro ceedings of tbe legislature. If they will make that column deeent tbey will de all that is ex pected of them, and can leave the teat alone. Tub War in Rubopi -Rki-vub or tw? Gkbmam at Duma.?Our Uuwt advice* from Europe atata that Ibe Germane bare vainly eudeavored to capture Duppei, the Danish atrougbold. The PruMtan batterMt were deemed very formidable, aod m their cannon are rifled, and tboaa ot U.e Danes are the old faahlonad amoothe bore, it wa* considered a matter of certainty that when a goneral attack was made the Dane* would have to abandon their defences. The result bait proved that these conjectures were erro neous. The Prussians bombarded Duppei and made a grand attack upon it, penetrating into the second line of trenches. They were, however, repulsed, and were forced, after Gve hours of bard fighting, to give up the attack, retreating with considerable loss. This disaster to the al lied forces, added to their unsuccessful attack upon Fredericia and the repulse of their men-of war by the Danish vessels, will doubtless cause them to be more willing to grant the armistice desired by the Danes ere they will accept a con ference. We may state here that the courage evinced by the Danish soldiers has won even the admiration of their enemies, who placed a wooden cross over the graves of some Danes whom they buried, with this inscription:? "Here lie twenty-five brave Danes, who fell heroically on the 17th March, in the combat of Duppei." This act reflects credit upon both parties. It is asserted in Berlin, in extenuation of the defeat of the Prussians, that the attack made by them was against the orders of the King, who desired that in no case should any be made except when positively required by strategical motives, which, in this instance, did not exist? the Prussian officers having made the attack on the King's birthday, from an excess of obse quiousness. As England, Austria and Prussia bave agreed to a conference?even should Den mark not be represented thereat?it is likely that the recent successes of the Danes will make their enemies more yielding, and pave the way for a more speedy settlement of the troubles existing between them. A peace would save Europe from those dangerous complications which now threaten her ; and, in view of this, the German Powera will doubtless be strongly urged to offer such conditions as the Danes may accept. Should this course not be pursued, a general war in Europe seems almost inevitable, as the Danes are evidently determined to make a desperate resistance, which, prolonged, would drag into the question England and France. Tim Conventions.?There is it shoddy con vention to meet at Baltimore, and a shent-per shent convention to meet at Chicago, and both conventions are absurd and impudent pieces of bumbuggery, without even a respectable tra dition to justify their existence. There are not three men in a hundred ia any community in the United States who can tell the name of the man who represents his district in either of these conventions. These conventions are of the same kiad of importance to the people of the United States that the assemblies of the Forty Thieves were to the citizens of Bagdad. Will not Congress take some action to kill the conveations ? Fine Art*. Among the pictures winch have attracted most atten tion In tbe Fine Art collection at tbe F.itr is a political alienory by Mr. K. Augero, who baa distinguished himself in the decoration or soveral of our Catbolic churches, as well as by noma admirable historical paintings and por traits. This young artist, although an Italian by birth, has made himself remarked by tbe ardor of his attach ment to bis adopted country, and he has given a fresh proof of it io tbe presentation of this.picture (valued al a thousand dollars) to tbe Fair. The subject is one peculiarly appropriate to the occasion. It is audited "The Goddess of Union, attended hy Peace and Plasty, dismissing the Fury of Rebellion and her Vic 'he composition and grouping of tbe figures | Mr. Augero exhibits tbe classical tendencies of the school in which be has been educated. That or "Union'' la al m *t statuesque in its character, and would serve aa a "?"''?I for tbe sculptor. Tbe face wears an expres eim of indignation and sadness wliicn conveys forci bly tbe son i > men t of tbe allegory.

Tbe Navy Department is in receipt o( advices from Ad miral Porter, from Alexandria, La.,of March 20. enclosing some rebel correspondence, which was captured by tbe gunboat Signal a day or two before, while the rebel mail carrier was crossing the river, giving a complete history of tbe rebel torpedoes, the machine that blew up the Housatoulc and tbe mauner tn which it was done. Ad" mlral Porter says, "They have just appointed a Torpedo corpa, for the purpose of blowing up property of all kinda. Among other devilish inventions is a torpedo, resembling a lump or coal, to be placed in coal piles and among tba coal put on board vessols. The names of tbe parties are all mentioned In the correspondence,and I used a photo" graph of one of tbem." Among the captured correspond ence ts a letter from T. K. Courteney to Colooel H. E.
