' There is nothing official or otherwise concerning the Movements of the armies in Virginia yesterday. Mr. Stanton has issued no bullotin, and the telegraph Is Sliest. Despatches from headquarters, at fire o'clock on Tues day morning, state that oo the day previous artillery flrlnr on the right and plckot skirmishing was going on at various points along the line, result ing in the wounding of n few men, but causing no ehaage la ths position.

The President end Assistant Secretary of Use Very Fox returned to Washington yesterday after their visit to Oitgr Point. C0HGBX88.

Having Bucceoded In their efforts to postpone tbe Chicago Convention, so as to break up tbe democratic party and throw the coming election into the bonds of tbe republicans, the peace patriots are now trying to make a show of strength, in erder to drive as good a bargain aa possible with tbe managers of tbe Cenvcntion. The articles of tbe Daily Acte?, tbe meeting of Fernando Wood's committee at tbe Astor House on Tuesday, tbe oall fbr a peace mass meeting, the appointment of a committee to lobby the Chicago Convention, and Fernando's peace speech at Mozart Hall, mean simply (bat the peace faction is hi this market for the highest bidder. Doubtless they have already effected a secret sale of themselves to the shoddy republicans; bnt if tboy can get any thing out of tbe .democrats besides, why so much the better for tbe Wood Brothers and tbeir understrappers. Of all tbe small, kssigniQcant, contemptible cliques that have ever diegr&oed tbe politics of this country the peace clique is tbe worst It is equally despised by honest Union men and honest rebels. Some Northern politicians make use of It, as tbey do of other dirty tools, to aid their schemes; but Jeff. Davis makes use of it for the same purpose. It has no popularity, no force, no power. The notse rahod about it In tbe Nats and by tbe peaoe orators is ail humbug. It baa no effect, except upon those silly persons who mistake the sound of a tin kettle at a dog's tail fbr tbe thunder of an approaching army. When thlfc war began with the attack upon Fort Sumter, there was no peace party at the North. Fernando Wood, who now professee to be an apostle of peaee then made a strong war speech at Union square] More than this: be acted with tbe Union Defbnoe Committee, for motives that have been vn i iously represented, and helped them fill np enr armies. Mozart Hall, which now pretends to be a peace concern, then raised a regiment, and named it tbe Mozart ifegimonk We care not whether this waa done for the purpose of making money or from patriotism^ bnt tbe fhcta of Wood*! war speech and tha Mozart regiment art on record, and oannot be denied. Sd?tf the peace faction la right now, why was it not right tbeaf And what did Fbraando Wood mean by advocating WW when ho bo lisvad in peoof la 1M1 tbe denooratks party waa praott oelly annihilated. Breeklarldga, Bbe. Wood, go*. Vallaadltiw* cpd * ttUvf to* 8,PP* ??? all that were left of tt In Oeo g?". Breckinridge and tba Mississippi man joined tba rebel ranks. Oox, Ben. Wood and Vallandigham had not the courage to do that, but remained in Congress and voted nreVVefi' i?8?r"swftr'biv^u?i?-'wi democratic politicians then. The democratic papers, like tho Day Boole and JTcai, were suppressed. The Journal qf Commerce was denied the mails. The independent press, led by the Hebald, managed the conservative party and supported the war, while condemn ing the radical tendencies of the adtnlnlutra- j tioa. When the elections of 18152 came off the independent press controlled them aud rebuked ' the administration by carrying ail the Cen tral States by large conservative majorities. The Tlnairj) forced Governor Seymour to stand upon a war platform, and he was elected as a candidate. Fernando Wood then owned part of the World, which waa at that time a war paper. Knowing that be would be defeat ed in bis own district, be changed his residenoe to the Metropolitan Hotel, and ran for Con gress In a strong democratic diatriot, having bought off aH opposition. Ben. Wood put his peace principles in his pocket and took his oheck book ont of his pocket, and so secured a place on the conservative ticket That ticket was elected throughout, and the two Woods went in with it, as the scum sweeps along with the current There were no peaoe candidates then, for all tho sacoessful men were chosen as war men. In the faoe of those facts the Daily News has the impudence to claim that election as a triumph of the peace party. A* soon as the election of 18G2 was over the democratic politicians began to sneak out of thek b^ee. They knew that the independent press Wul gained tho election; but this did not prevent their boasting that it was the work of their own hands. The usual bargaining and selling at once began. The cry of peace commenced to be beard Fernando Wood sold out of the World and revived the Daily News. Trace candidates were put In tho field for 1863. Pre dictions were loudly uttered that they would succeed, because the conservatives had suc ceeded In 1862. What was the resnlt? Tho peace candidates were everywhere defeated. "V aHandigtmm, tho leader of the gang, received an especial quietus, although the misconduct of the administration towards him had secured him the sympathy of many who detested his principles. Now, what record could be clearer than that of these two elections? Is it not plain that if the Woods bad run as peace men in 1862 they would have been as badly whip ped as Vallandigham was in 1863? Is it not plain also that they dodged the peace ques | tion In 1862, In order to get elected to Con gress ? By what stretch of imagination, then, can they now assert that their election was an endorsement by the people of the peace plat form? Yet this is the assertion which they have made sinoe that time, and which they took advantage of at our last munjeipal election to drive bargains with the democratic leaders and crowd their hangers-on into offiees in this city. Tli? game which paid so well in Now York they are going to repeat at Chicago. The Woods have nothing to do with that Conven tion. Mo/.ait Hall repudiated them and sent other delegates from the State Convention at Albany. They are not even tho alternates of tho regular delegates. The Dally News seeks to disgaise this fact by assuming a sort of guardianship over the Convention; but the bit ter fact remains nevertheless. The Wood Brothers want to go to Congress again. It is even said that Fernando has his single eye upon some higher office, although we scarcely think that his vaulting am bition could again o'erleap itself, as it did in 1860 at Charleston. This desire to go back to Congress is the secret of all the fuss abont the peace party; but the bargain between Cbnee and Fernando Wood, which was rep<#ted some time ago, may also have had something to do with it But if enough dis play can be made by the Astor Honse confab the contemplated mass meeting and the opera tions of the lobby committee at Chicago to induce the democratic leaders to give the Woods another nomination in good, safe democratic districts, we imagine that this par nobile fratrum will be very well satisfied with the result of their political speculations this year. At any rate, we know that they ought to be satisfied. They have absolutely no claim upon any party Ibr a nomination. - They have ao political principles to recommend tbem. They can refer to no J?ast services to the country. They havo no popularity In the best sense of that much abased word. Whenever tbey have been elected to any offices it has been because tbey have bargained or bonght themselves places upon the machine ticket, and so tbey have been ground ont with tho rest If, by their shrewdness, their petty in trigues or their money, such persons as these can be sent to Co*gress>to misrepresent the great cdty of New York, of course they ought to be satisfied; but nobody alse is. We advise the Chicago Convention to have nothing to do with tbem or their lobby committee. Turn the cold shoulder upon them, and the peace faction is annihilated. In a word, this pcaoe party, of which so much is sdN North and South, con sists simply of a parool of political cowboys or bushwhackers, of whom Fernando Wood is the captain and the Daily News the trumpeter, and the sooner tbey meet toe fate of bush whackers the better. This Wobld Expects "Somktittnq to Turn Dp."?The wlaeacrea of the World, who conld believe Mbe other day that nothing bat mischief to the party conld follow the postponement of the Chicago Democratic Presidential Conven tion, now, that the thing has been done, dis cover a world of wisdom in it In regard te Old Abe, they aay that "events my trans plte before September which will sweep away his proepecfci as with a whirlwind of fire." Ia other wards, In the Interval to September "something may tarn np." Who knowsf Set down Mr. Micawber,(or rather Mr! August Belmont, am cog the "wise men of the Bast" What Will Givmul Fremont Do??The postponement of the Chicago Democratic Con vention till the end of Angoet interferes some what with tbe programme and calculations of Geo. Fremont, Gen. Cochrane end the "radi cal democracy." What art they to do? Let them keep up their lire and wait patianity. General Fremont, the "Pathfinder" of tbe re publican party, may also prove the Pathfinder to tbe bewildered demoosSoy. Let the "radl dbl democsacy" stkfc to their guna. A Pdbun Qcsaas -The prion of (Oil jffter^r to Wailstr^nf apMmlaliM-Tlu PftH ?t ????? Congress recently gave the world the mea rare of its wisdom by passing a bill to prevent flueiuutfoa In the priee of gold and exchange. From the augment that this bill 'became a law and went into affect there were the most re seen. The law, Intended to fix and bold gold at its natural relation with the national cur rency, set it loose at onco from every possiblo relation, and no one knew where It was. Gold was worth any price a broker chose to put npon his bulletin, and of course had no price. When a man started from Trinity chnroh he did not know what gold might get to before he should reach Pearl street, and was afraid to buy at any price; for In ten minutes more it might fall flat If any accident should sud denly nullify and destroy the centre of gravity, the confusion in the world of artioles flylBg hither and thither and fragmenta of matter going In unaccustomed directions would not be greater than waethe confusion made by the | Gold fill in Wall street And this sudden ohange was .entirely due to that very speculation which the bill aimed to destroy. Brought to a dis tinct and practloal test, the price of gold had really suffered no change. On yoster day two gentlemen, the Messrs. Blankman, holders or a large amount of gold, desi rous to take advantage of the supposed high prices, went to Wall street to sell. They found that only two brokers were disposed to operate in the precious metal at all. They called upon one of these. He was buying golrf in small amounts at 210 and selling it at 210. What was the price of gold at that establishment? Oar travellers announced that they had gold to sell. "How much?" "Two hundred and eighty thousand dollars." "Tbcy would have to see the head of the house," and were shown to his private room. Informed of the state of the case, the head of tho house admitted that he was paying 210, but could not pny it for that amount. He "was sure that gold couldn't keep up, that it would certainly be below two hundred to morrow," and, in fact, this good natnrod tradesman preferred, rather than buy the gold, to recommend his customers to his neighbor. So the two gentlemen weat to the other broker. He also was buying at 210 and selling at 216, and was as little anxious to buy a large snm at his own price as his neighbor had been. He "knew that gold would be below two hundred to-morrow." Well, if it was to fall, the two gentlemen would like to sell now on the best torms they could get. "What would he give T?? He "didn't know. He would prefer not to buy it at ail." As there was no third broker for the gentleman to be commended to, they were merely bowed out, and left Wall street some what enlightened as to what la not the price of *?If'speculation ic tc be stopped some other plan must be tried; but perhaps it would be better for Mr. Chaso to admit that he cannot stop it; to admit that speculation is so Inevita ble a rart of trade that the blow that will kill it will kill trade too. Gold is, lu this market, and more especially under present circum stances, aa much a commodity as cotton or sugar; something that Is sold lu the shops, and that we want and must have for given pur penes, just aa we want and must have those articles. It must, therefore, be subject to the same laws; and who would dream of legisla tion to prevent speculation In general trade? Gold is even one of the crops of the country. Mr. Welles has permitted the rebels to land their gold, in the shape of cotton, in London, for three years past, with comparatively little trouble, and Mr. Cfcase ought to permit us to export one of our orops with at least as little embarrassment as the rebels can export theirs. It is to be boped that this experience will teach the wise men at Washington that the laws of trade are too real and Imperative to be suspended at tbeir pleasure. Galllleo, when required under pain of punishment by a council of cardinals to recant bis astronomi cal theories, sod to declare that the impious doctrine that tho earth revolved around the sun was not true, did so, Yet, looking fondly upon hla diagrams, be said, as he rose from his knees?"But it turns still." And Mr. Cbase, however disagreeable tho laws of trode may be, and however inconvenient to him, must by this time that it would be wiser to recogntfee their existence'than to declare by his little gold bills that trade baa no laws that he ought to respect.

We understand that James T.

Some time since we stated that ere long the rebel leaden would be deserting the con federacy, and wool a fly to Borope with what booty tfley could gather. We see by the Eng lish Journals that ex-Senator 0. C. Clay, of Alabama, and Jacob Thompson, of Mississippi, Secretary of tbe Ihterlor under Buohaaan, bad arrived at Bermuda, m route for Halifax.

TLds, ws under stand, is only the commeucemont'pf this kind ef work that is to be done. Other iuiportnnt personages, we are informed, are soon to fol low their fate. All this Is but the reiult <>f the Cabinet quarrel that Las been going ou-fbr the lost two years. It likewise throws addi tional light npon th^ recent spicy commualsa tions between Thurlow Weed and the radioafr, and leaved Mr. Weed, at the present oondition of affaire, master of the Bold. It is somewhat amuMng to teee the dif ferent factions in the republican party showing each other up just now, and ex hibiting their dirty linen to the gaze of the publio, and that loo .In advance of the bling of the Chicago Convention. The usual course has been for the parties to wait until after both sides have nominated their candi dates, and then for each side to show up the (deformities of their opponents. But it seems that the republican party could not wait for the democrats to nominate their candidate, but have come out with their family matters beforehand. They have thus saved the democracy the trouble of searching out the faots and bringing them to light The fact of this matter is, the incoherent elements of Presi dent Lincoln's Cabinet have worked the affairs of the party into such a state that even the oohesive power of publio plunder no longer holds them together. Each faction is deter mined to have all the fat pickings or noBe. Ilence the grnnd expose that is going on jast now. Each member of the Cabinet is endeavor ing to run the party team to suit.bimself, and they are all, therefore, quarrelling like cats and dogs over an old bone already stripped of the meat. Baoh Cabinet minister is doing all that 1 be oan to bring some other member into bad repute, and that is taken up by the followers, adherents and friends of the respective Cabinet ministers. The wrangle aad fight are daily extend ing and becoming more bitter. Arrests have already commeoced, and as some of the fruits retaliation is threatened, and will no doubt be carried out to the fullest extent Thus far the State Department bas got the upper band of all the other bureaus. But these acts are nothing compared with the important and deoidedly interesting developments of the rottenness of the administration. If the oppo site party hod made these statements they would have bad but little effect upon the rank and file of the republican party. But now that they are being brought out by the leaders and en dorsed officially, eveu the most blind partisan of the so-called Honest Old Abe's adminis tration cannot but believe them, and if he votes to oontinne Mr. Linooln in office be votes knowingly for the extension of a corrupt ad ministration." t Tux Hon. Bkn Wood Rkjoices.?TLe Hon. Ben Wood, of the Daily Netos, has certainly been invested by Mr. August Belmont with the magle shirt of the happy man. Listen to what the Hon Ben says of the postponement ef the National Democratio Convention from July 4 to August 29:?"The postponement will give ample time to shape the platform of the Convention in such a manner as to secure the best results to the country at large." This "glittering generality," however, is all gam mon, and dues not cover the case. What the Hon. Ben Wood intended to say, we have no doubt, was this:?"This postponement will give ample time to ns (the Hon. Fernando and the Hon. Ben Wood) to get np a peace party which will command anything we may choose to ask in the way of a bargain and sale at Chicago, at Albany and with Tammany Hall." Henoe the rejoicings of the Hon. Ben Wood.
