A very considerable excitement baa been created In both tbe army and navy of the department by tbe ap pearance of your article lu tbe Hkrald of the 23d Inst., upon the "Operations on Jauies River?The Failure of Our Iron clad Navy " mere are those, and amon.t them the commanding general o( the department, who feel that the Admiral's reputation end efficiency have been unjustly assailed. It la claimed that, while the old Admi ral may have mncb to answer (or, be should not be , harshly criticised tor failing to counteract obstructions that have their ortem with the Almighty, woe alone can remove them. General Butler has personally oailed my attention to a chart of the Jamea river chan nel, officially authorized by the government, which plainly Indicates that the Admiral's ves sels cannot proceed to Richmond, for tno reason that they draw twelve feet of water, end the channel lor half a mile above Trent Reacb oontalne only eleven feet of water Beyond this point there Is ptenty of water, at d the iron-dads could easily contest the matter with the rebel rants and sail Richmond wards If this point of Trent Reach In the river could bo overcome. Then, again, the Iron-clsds, it is et utly asserted, cannot be lightened sufficiently to accomplish the desired object. Take every thing out of them and they would only Itgbteit six Inches out ot the water. No one here questions Lee's bravery, tie to universally credited with being a brave old sea dog. The obstructions wsre placed In the James by the express order of Geneva) Grant, which fact tends In a great meas ure to exonerate the Admiral. awiML a. a poem's xxrenmow. The situation ef the enemy to-day in relation to Gene ral R. s. toster'e position at Junes' Neck is somewhat menacing, though quiet. Captain Cornelius llsstsa, of the First New York mounted rifles, reports them developed in line of bailie, with e heavy skirmish line at a point , a mtlo and a half from Jones' Neck. There are several regiments of the enemy and a battery at Ruffln's house. The picket line was advanced this afternoon under com mand of the officer of the day, Mq|or Bill, of the Eleventh Maine.

The Washington correspondent of the New York Tfeies, under date of the 24th inst., assorts on alleged "high authority" that the department of General Bailer has been merged in that of the Army of tho Potomac. I am enabled to refute what the Tinirj correspondent has as sertrd. Major General Butler's department still con tinues, both nominally and veritably, a separate and dis tinct organisation, over whicb the great Massachusetts aneian exercises supreme control, at all other depart mental commanders rule their organizations, In general subordination to the President and the Lieutenant General ol the armies. nix raw*.
