Tkc'siHtlTir1 details whlob wo p ?MM tUs moraine nf tbe late dsntrmothre nM leoumlen into Maryland; the doing* mA muiimisls of the enemy* foroes oonoerned; tbe property appropriated or destroyed by thess.end the plunder carried off; the lines of their retreat, and the movements of our pursuing columns, Ac., leave very little of mystery counected with the subject. We have narrowly escaped the terrible disas ter of the surprise and sacking of V aah ington. The city, we are inclined to believe, was saved from a surprise by General Wallace and his handful of men in that henceforth memorable fight or Saturday, the 9th inst, on the Monocacy river. In that opportune and well delivered battle the strength and great design of the enemy's advuncing columns were discovered, the needful warning was given to the War Office, and the incalculable advantages of a day were gained at Wash ington, to prepare to meet the enemy at tbe ezsct point for which he was moving. Id this view, tbe battle made, though a defeat of General Wallace, of 1864, towards the mouth of the Monocacy river, will take rank in its iVnmcnse advantages to the Union cause with the great victory or General Meade or 1863, at the head of tbe same stream. We hope that the administration, restored to cool reflection, will vet endorse this view of the subject, and do justice to a trusty and sagacious soldier, faithfully discharging his duty at <tie right time and in the right place to render the grcnt enterprise of tbe enemy a complete failure. Hut still the question recurs, why was it that, in order to open their cyt-s, out military :*u thorities at Washington required the w.irning or a battlo and a defeat of our troops almost at the very gates of tbe city? G en. Grant a Tort night before had informed Mr. Stanton of this movement of the enemy. General Sigel, in his flight from Martiusburg, bad reported the ad vancing rebel column down the Shenandoah valley to be twenty-five thousand strong; and from the desperate situation of General Leo at Richmond, and the whole cause of the rel>el lion, the War Office should have known that this rebel force advancing into Maryland was moving for Washington, and by forced marches. How, then, are we to explain the lamentable fact that, at the eleventh hour, tire clerks of the executive departments had to be called to the rescue of tlie natioual capital, when the War Office might have bad, and should have had, troops enough at the front to "gobble up" the exhausted columns or Early and Breckin ridge on their approach to tbe city. The incompetency, incredulity and indo lence of the War Office make the only answer we have to give. In a word, a ssga cious, experienced, cool and capablo gene ral is needed at Washington; and next we want at Washington a mobile army of one hundred thousand men, in order to ciear tbe country of the enemy between the Potomac and Richmond, while General Grant is closing around that last stronghold of the rebellion from tbe south side. We would therefore ap peal again to President Lincoln to appoint General McClellan to the Department of Wash ington, comprising the country indicated, and , to call for a force of one hundred thousand three months volunteers and militia to serve under him. In this way we feel assured that Richmond will speedily be captured, the rebel lion crushed, the Treasury relieved, atid the oountry saved. The Campaign in Georgia? Ati *nta.? Hav ing successively abandoned the mountain re gion near Chattanooga, having been driven or flanked out of Rocky Face Ridge, Buzzard Roost, Dal ton, Ressacca, Kingston. Cassville and Rome, across the Etowah river, out of Allatoona Mountains, and away from Marietta, 1 Johnston has at length been pushed from the south bank of the Chattahoochee river, which 1 it tbe last obstacle of importance between our ? forces and Atlanta. Tbe Chattahoochee rises i in the extreme northeastern part of Georgia, in J a spur of the Blue Ridge chain of mountains called Mount Yonah. The stream ranges south- j westerly, is about five hundred miles long. : forms the boundary between Georgia and Alabama from West Point, and, joining with tbe Flint at the Florida line, forms the Apala ehicola. Tbe lower portion of the river ie navlaable. , , Having left this line. Johnston will probably 1 show no fight, or at all events very little, at Atlanta. That place is not of any natural strength, and he will never hazard his army for its protection. Tbe campaign ending in the capture of the railroads will force Johnston into another field of operations. But what that will be no one can yet determine. I- rom Atlanta, with his powerful army, Gen. Sherman will be strong enough in theopon. lower country which he has gained to continue driving Joe Johnston till his weakened and still diminish ing army is destroyed, whether he may elect to move southward for Macon, or to the east fot Augusta and Charleston, *r south we?tward!y for Alabama and Mobile. We think it very probable that General Sherman, after gathering np supplies at Atlanta sufficient for a new departure it any direction, will be governed now In his movements to a great extent by the evenU of the campaign in Virginia. Holding tbe whole northern rail road system of Georgia in his hands, he may move east, west or south, as tbe occasion may ' invite or require. Br. atk on irk BaLTTHOm CoNviNTtow -The Illimitable snarl of political complicst'.om is more wonderful than Bully Bottom s dream. Now that the Baltimore Convention has nomi nated Old Abe, and quietly gone out of exist ence, it it likely to appear that there were affiliations between that convention and tbe Cleveland Convention, owned and run by Gen. Fremont. Gen. Frank Blair, in a letter given in another column, fellcltstes his friend (.apt Able, of St. I.ouis, on the nomination of Old Abe at the Baltimore Convention: but he says that the convention is net entitled to any credit for the nomination, since it had to make it anyhow. Just what we have ssid several timet. Bnt Blair says that tbe convention bad to nominate Lincoln becanse the people^had done so. while the trath is that it had to nomi nate him because matters had been so arranged by the shoddy contractor* Blair then informs Able, for tbe public benelt, that this Baltimore Convention wm composed In part of the origi nators? tbe real prime apTUftartf Cleve land Fremont CoiuiTien. And thin fact leads Blair to expreli Ms lUgust in a general way at tbe corruption of tbe Baltimore Convention Bnt be likes Its candidate. Tbess llkss and I tfcujw of poimtiMM trt intaiVslj tuMj. **? HIM B*r*rU ?( BUtaOIlM*! AfweU. We published a day or two ago na Isterest leg lotter from oar owmfntui la Mtile*. netting forth la the clearest unur the foot that Maximilian bolio my mr bat o portion of tho republlo of Hoxioo; also that the financial conditioa of tho now impe Hal government ia deplorable; and, loetly, that tho report* as to the adhesioa of several prominent Mextean generals to the new ruler are false. This morning wo publish a second letter from the same intelligent party, communicating a number of add tlonal facto confirmatory of bis previous statements. From all these it is evident that the constitutional authorities of Mexico hare under their juris diction a much greater extent of oountry than Maximilian can control, and that tho people are organizing for serious defenoe against the intruder, evon In those regions which are gar rlsoned by the French. General Uraga.who it was Asserted by the agents of Maximilian bad joined the cause or the new empire, is, on the contrary, active In his efforts to arouse the people of Mexico to a determined resistance against the subversion of their government. He presided over a war meeting at which resolutions tending to that effect were nnanlmouely adopted. We publish the proceedings of this meetlrg In another part of this journal, aud would call attention to the document in question bs of groat importance, contradicting, as it does most emphatically, those Franco-Mexican journals which ad vocate the c^>?e oT Maximilian, and en deavor l>y the dissemination of these false reports to benefit his government. Promi nent among these journals is tiie French organ published in tMs city. It fakes groat pains to contradict tbe statements of our correspondent; but, unfortunately for it, such documents as those we publish to day prove that his assertions are quite correct. Tie French journal publish . d here has in the suite of Maximilian an editor who receives from tbe French government a salary to write up tho new empire, while at the pame time he is an honorary member of the Imperial Council of Mexico. From these facts it may readily be deduced that the editor in question will praise, quaml memt, tho actions of the new Emperor; that he will to the extent of his ability and tbe limited influence of bis journal, published here, sustain the imperial Tegitne in Mexiso, and tliat, ns a natural result, his reports must be accepted with due reserva tion. That the public in th:s oountry might be well informed as regards the proceedings of the new Mexican empire, we have despatched to its capital a reliable and intelligent correspondent, whose truthful reports the Franco-Mexican journals will vainly endeavor to contradict or subvert. There can be no doubt that Maximilian and his imperial backer, Napoleon, have a most difficult task before them ere they can aeeompllah the entire subjugation of Mexico. The people are far from des pairing of their ability to resist the invaders, and under the command of determined generals will still give tbe French great trouble. Having as yet so small a portion of the country under their control, the French cannot carry out Napoleon's pet scheme of working the rich pold and silver mines; so that millions of j francs must be borrowed yet to keep the new , Mexican empire afloat; and we are aware that getting loans for Maximilian in Europe has proved a failure. But suppose all these difficulties overcome, the whole country re duced to submission, and the long coveted mines reached, tbe two imperial filibuster would still have their most serious, most , dreaded danger to encounter? the opposition or this government. We shall soon see the rebellion ended and peace restored, and then of course our first move will be the vindication | of the Monroe doctrine. Wo shall at once order off this continent all intruders, and both I French and Austrian will have to pack up and retire. We can brook no monarchies at the ? threshold of our great republic, and shall have a million of men and five hundred veasels of-war to carry out our intentions in this matter. laking all .these things into con sideration. we conclude, spifc of tho falsehoods I of the Franco-Mexican journals, that uneasy will lie the bead that wears the Mexican crown, i tmtiovs IN rniNTiKG Faith. Provisions. ' Ar.. avo thk National Baxks.? The publish- ; ers or newspapers .have keen obliged for a ! long time to pay enormous prices for printing t paper, and various substitutes have been intro duced to supply the place of its chief original material? rags? in order to reduce tbe cost of manufacture. Straw, various grasses, the bark of trees, and, lastly, corn husk*, or sbuoks. have been introduced to meet the deficiency in the supply of rags. But with all these substitutes tbe prices continue to ad'vance: and now no betier cause than speculation by tbe manufac turers and others can be assigned as tbe renson. How is it that these printing paper speculators obtain accommodations to enable them to speculate so extensively In the article? An answer is found in tbe conrse pursued bv the new national banks in furnishing loans to these speculators. ? Ever since tbe organization of these national banks tbey have been aiding tbe unscrupulous speculator to carry on bis busi ness: and. on account of the great evils arising from this eause, Congress In Its wisdom, paseed a bill designed to prevent specula tion In gold. These banks tfcen turned their attention particularly to speculations In print ing paper, and la pork, beef, flour, grain and ^other necessaries of lifo. It is to tLem that tho 'present high prices are owing, and It ia to them that the public must look'es one of tbe causes lor many of tbe grievous burthens tbey bear. Now. if these national bsnks are not careful and watchful, and do not cease their free and easy accommodations to speculators in printing paper and otter necessaries of life, and do not halt In their operations tending to Impose upon the government double the necessary expense of supplying tbe great Unicn armies with pro visions. they will all go down? they will all break to pieces together, and entail ruin npon nil concerned. The finance* of tbe country are in a rickety conditio!. The late Secretary of tie Treasury lert them so. and it remains for the new Secretary, Mr. Feseenden. to amend tfcetr condition by adopting wise rules for tbe regulation of bin dealings with bsnks, whose speculntivo tendency is to Impose tnd ma>niein* heavy burthens, both npon the people and the government.

Why do thase men deem it nceesnury to declare tbcir belief In this wayT Some tbree or four years ago there was published a brave and honest booh, entitled "Essays and Reviews." It was made up of several papers on theologioal subjects, written by distinguished .churchmen In England, In which they brought into question certain of tbe cburcli doctrines and dogmas. Tliey ventured to show that many of these dogmas, originating in tbe intellectual darkness of the early Chris tian centuries, were unworthy tbe enlighten ment of the present age, and ought not to be taught by truthful men. It was their theory that, as growth and progress are pcrnuttcd'fin every other branch of study, they ought to be permitted in theology also, and that the Cburch ought no longer to insist upon hold'ng tenets that were acceptable In the time* when men believed thut the world rested on the back of a turtle. This carried with it tbe dangerous fact thut there were distinguished churchmen who belioved that tbe Church was of human origin, since its ideas partook of human ignorance; for if it weri instituted by God Ilis prescienco must have made it Buch that time and (he growth of human knowledge should not belittle it. Consequently the book excited great alarm in the minds of the English ecclesiastical hier*rchy-?ull those Little, round, (at, oily men of God who enjoy comfortable bishoprics. 3o tbe occleaiastical machinery' was brought up out of the dark ages, and tho authors of this book were at once denounced as heretics. Two of them ? tho Rev. Dr. Williams and Mr Wilson? were tried before an ecclesiastical court on the charge of heresy. They were relieved from the charge; but there was great dissatisfaction with the de cision. Hence there was a schism, and tbe Church in England was divided upon the ques tion whether or no it believed in tho in^pira tion of the canonical Scripture^; and a test declaration on this subject was sent round foi the signatures of the "unco good and owo? righteous'' of tho magnates. This idea has been imported In order to give the American bishops a cbanoe to show how good they also are; and so far only one has de clined to sign the declaration. This is Bishop Whittingham. He does not refuse to sign be cause be believos in tbe inspiration of the Scrip tures any less than tbe others do, but merely because be does not like this particular plan of proscription. Captain W inslow's Official Rrpohtb.? We give in another column the very interesting reports of Captain Winslow and tbe officers of the Kearsarge to tbe Navy Department. From these statements we are assured that tbe utmost coolness, xaal and courage were dis played in every department of tbe ship, and that, from the gallant commander down to the powder boys, each one strove to maintain the honor and glory of the flag. The marines opened tbe engagement with a rifled gun. and throughout the action maintained a rapid and effective fire. The gunner's report will be read with much interest. In sixty-five minutes one hundred and seventy-three projectiles were hurled at the pirate, the two eleven-inch guns throwing fifty-five shells, or at the rate of one nearly every thirty-five seconds to each gun. This is fine practice, and our transatlantic ene mies may rest assured that we have plenty of other vessels that can do as well if they only have the opportunity. Navt Agent Henderson. ? Commissioner Osborn, upon the preliminary examination of Mr. Henderson, late Navy Agent, has com eluded to hold liim over for trial. This is well; for, if innocent, the accused will have the moans and the opportunity to make it plain; if guilty, the ends of justice will be attained and a wholesome example to evil doers in their dealings with the Treasury will be made. Let even-handed justice bo done. The Enomsi. Oruan.? Among the various organs that represent foreign Interests and ideas in our midst there is an English organ, conducted on the true English theory that nil that is good and admirable is England and the I.'nglisb, and that all that is not English, and especially all that is American, Is contemptible and vile. It is tbe ostensible purpose of this journal to flatter tie national vanity of its sub scribers ? Englifchmen who have come here to make money ? and it does tbis principally by decrying tbis country in a very English spirit ? that is, in a spirit of bullying, ignorant, arrogant self-sufficiency. English sentiments are at any time sufficiently nnp&lutable to tbe American jjeoj le: but tbis war has made them doubly so now. England is against us openly, and with tbe rebels ; and the English organ, true te its mission at an exponent of English opinion here, Is thus more than usually offensive. It is a secession organ, giv ing aid and comfort to tLe enemy; and since it seems to fancy that, as a consistent English paper, it amst oppose tbe war and favor the South, it ought to have the decency to suspend publication, and so save trouble. Ohttiu ctions on ma Sidewalks.? Complaints are constantly being made in regard to the ob structions that are allowed to remain on the sidewalks In many of tbe business streets of this city, Tbe sidewalks, which our citizens have a sort of an idea were made for pedes trians, are, in many ef the business streets, so encumbered with boxes, barrels, hogsheads and crates that it Is Impossible fer a person to walk through the street without either climb ing ever the boxes, barrels and other encum brancea, or dodging around among the aarts, wafeae and numerous other vehicles in the middle of the street.
