SEIZURE OF TBS B1VER CRAFT ON TnE POTOMAC. All the large craft, schooners and sloops and small rowboats and skiffs on the Potomac river have been taken possession of by the government authorities. This may bo a mutter of precaution between the Maryland and Virginia shores. THE ENEMY'S CANNON WITHIN REACH OF TIIK UNION FORTIFICATIONS. Motwltstanding tho many statements to the effect that the rebels had retreated froip before tho Uuion lines on the South of tho Potomac, on tho Virginia side, we are led to believo that the contrary statement is tho fact. On Sunday the Twenty-fifth New York regiment, Colonel Kerrigan, then cncampod near Ball's Cross roads, was ordered to occupy a position on a hill to the left of their camp. They had no sooner accomplished their orders when the enemy, who has a battery within range, fired fifteen shells Into the new camp, causing the regiment to take a new position, out of range of tho enemy's guns. It was subsequently ascertained that the rebel battery consists of nine guns, and, wiui ornnance 01 largo ouu improved caiit>ro> can reach tho fortifications on tho Union aide. A detach, ment of the New York Twenty-fourth regiment, and a portion of General Kearney's Now Jersey Brigade, wore sent out to reinforce Colonel Kerrigan's regiment, hut when they came within range of the onemy's fire, they thought it prudent to retire. TBS ADMINISTRATION OF TBB QUARTERMASTER'S DEPARTMENT. Tho result of General Meigs' administration of the Quartermaster's Department is astonishing. The very large number of wagons, horses, mules and immensu amounts of camp equipage and other army supplies, nflurd direct ovidonco of his vigor and efficiency. Tho soldiers on both sides of tho Potomac are not only promptly, but satisfactorily furnished with everything necessary for their military as woll as domestic wants, and this attention to their interests has contributed largely to the proBent fino and improving condition of tho troops. THE NEW MAYOR OF WASHINGTON. Richard Waliach, Esq., was to-night elected Mayor of Washington by tho Board of Aldermen and City Council In joint Convention. Thus it will bo seen that justice although slow, is sure. Mr. naiinvu was elected Mayor by a legitimate minority of tlio jiopulur vote, but tbo anti-Union democratic candidate for reelection was allowed to retain tbo offlco upon a claim based uix-ri tlio most flugnint frauds, while the quo warranto sued out against biro was obstructed by every available means to enable liiin to administer this office, of so much import ance in tliese days, when disloyalty and treason are open, ly confronting the government within its very Capitol. Right and justice huvo at last boon vtdlcatcd. Mr. lk r rett is under arrest for treason, and by the action of the democratic City Councils, Mr. Wallach is placed in the position to which he was elected by the people nearly two years ago. The friends of Mayor Wallach in immense numbers complimented him to-night with a serenade. The Mxyor appeared, and in response thanked them for lheir demonstration. Ho declared himself for tho Union government. He would protect their interests as lie would his own (ho is a large property holder in tho City.) Ho, as well as they, had believed that bo was lawfully clocted thoir Mayor ono year ago last Juno, but ho had been counted out. Hu bad begged and hogged for a decision by a jury of citiaens in the case, and it had not boon granted. A great exigency had arisen, and the representatives of the people of the city had been callod upon to execute the municipal government. The choice had fallen upon him. At such a time no citizen should shrink from a public duty, and he had accepted the rust, and so help him God ho would faithfully cxocuto it, In reality to tho interests of the citizen^ and in loyalty to tho federal government. Although he would have much proforrod that tho case should have been decided upon its merits by the courts, he could not, as a loyal citizen, decline the honor and trust thai luid been conferred ou him by tho representatives of the people. After again thanking them fur their approval of tu? eourso he retired, and was followed by his brother, the Editor of tho Star, W. 1). Wallach, Ksq., who declared himself an exile from Virginia, bis home and his family and property, but in favor forever of the federal government. Alderman Lloyd was then called out, and congratulated the citizens upon the triumph of Justice ut last. Alderman I>ay ton also followed in eloquent remarks, a!) of which was heartily roepondod to by the crowd, which after a few Inspiring tunes, and "three cheers for Wallach and the Union," and "three groans for Berrett and the BoooRSionists," quietly dispersed, declaring that they should sleep to-night assured that the municipal govim. ment of Washington was in tho hands of the friends of tho constitution and the Union. / TDK ARRESTEB FEMALE SPIES IN WASHINGTON. ^ Since the arrest of Iho females who have mode them Bcivi'suuiiKiiiwuuut! py lui'ir cnons 10 ODUiio aim transmit valuable Information u tho rebels, in addition ut thu charges upon which their arrust was based, a number of 'acts havo been discovered showing their disloyalty and activity as agents of the rebel. It appears that Mrs. Grecnlinw carried her operations to such an extent as to tamper with a gentleman occupying a responsible position in the Wur DeptHment, anl "When Informed that she could not succeed in her efforts to induce him to betray his trust, she beftged and obtained his promise that ho would not expose her. Sub_ E NE Boqucntly he informed the chief of his bureau that he had boon thus approached by a widow lady, resident of Washington, but withheld her name until to day, when, upon being pointedly questioned, he axplolned that ooocoalment of the name was no longer or any avail, and stated that It waa Mrs. Greenhough. ARREST OF A RESIGNED MIDSHIPMAN. The Navy Department has a prompt method of dealing with disloyalists. In addition to similar cases rocently mentioned, A. D. Wharton, a midshipman on board the Seminole, tendered his resignation, but he waa dismissed from the service and sent to Port Lafayette. ARRESTS FOB CORRESPONDENCE WITH TUB KNEXY. Dr. W. D. Manning, of Maryland, and P. G. Soy bold, and W T. Walker, the latter newspaper correspondents, were arrested yesterday, charged with treasonable correspond enee with lho enemy. THE ARMY. General McClellan and Staff spent the entire day on the Virginia side, inspecting the fortlfleaiions, reviewing troops and informing himself generally as to the topography of the country ami the physique of the 1'nlon forces. Ills inquiries were very minute, and ho returned to town at dusk highly pleased with liis visit. The following appointments wero made to-day:? Thomas T. Gantt, Colonel Joseph Kirkland, and Captain Arthur McClellan, Aids to General McClellan. Also Brigadier General John F. Reynolds, of the thrco years voluu teors. The Surgeon General presented to the Secretary oflYur the following names of the approved candidates for As. sistant Surgeous. They were examined by the Army Medical Board, which convened in the city of New York May 28,1861, pursuant to Special Order No. 76, and are legally entitled to opi>ointmchts as Assistant Surgeons, in I the following order, to fill vacancies by the casualties of the service, vir:?

Happersett,of Pennsylvania, vice Ramsouri dismissed, August 17. THE NAVY. Captain Foote has been ordered to the command of th,, United States naval forces on the Western waters? namely, the Mississippi. Missouri and Ohio rivers. SKIRMISH BETWEEN THE PICKETS OF THE NEW VOKK Till KTY-SEVENTH AMI THE ENEMY. A picket skirmish occurred last evening between tho New York Thirty-seventh regiment and the enemy. <?no of our m -ii was shot alongside of Colonel McCunn. Ilig namo was Kellogg. The Colonel fired eight rounds ut tlie enemy wilh his own hand, killing two and wounding one man. Colonel Lardner. of the Second Michigan regiment, was also with our men. Colonel McCunn has been honorably acquitted of ilio charge preferred against him at tho recent court martiaj jn Alexandria. The scene in liis roglmcnt on the announcement of tliiB fact, was of the most enthusiastic description. Great injustice has been done to Col. McCuun, by parties who have sought to proclaim in advance through the press the verdict of tho court martial in his case, and that it was against him, when tho fact was exactly tho reverse. Gen. Richardson has this afternoon forwarded the writer the following note, which explains itself, and is highly honorable to the latter:? Col. McCunn his boon honorably acquitbul of the charges preferred against him, a: d lias been restored to his command. J. 11. R1CHARDPON, Brigadier General. Tho scene in the camp of tho Thirty-soventh, after tho announcement of the news of Colonel MoCunn's honorable acquittal, was one of tho most enthusiastic and exciting ever witnessed. Cheers were the order during the whoI0 of the cviniug. and the men would not be satictlcd till tho Colonel addrossod them in any eloquent and stirring speech. The applause was long and hearty. The band of the Second Michigan subsequently serenaded tho Colonel, whilo the whole regiment surrounded his tent. AFFAIR WITH THE REBEL TICKET?. On Sunday u lieutenant and two men of tie Tififfirst New York volunteers strolled beyond the Union pickets, on tho road from Alexandria to Fairfax Court House. Tltcy were surrounded l>y a detachment of rebels. One of the men was shot dead and the lieutenant made prisoner. The other man escaped to his regimental camp. QUARTERMASTER'S MEN REQUIRED TO TAKE T1IE OATII. The oath of ullegienco is to be administered to all tho employes in the Quartermaster's department. This order lias occasioned a considerable flutter among tho teamsters, among win m there is reason to believe there aro many who are not only disloyal but secret agents of the rel> Ib. It is said that a number of tlicm were active participators in the attack upon the Sixth Massachusetts region nit, in Baltimore, on tho sixth of April. PENSIONERS REQUIRED TO TAKE THE OATH OF AL" LEGIANUE. Orders have been issued to the Pension Agents of the g<JYl'rr.m"Ui, inai nerval ver on rwi^Rms 01 |jeunious wuin the United States shall be required to fake the oath of allegiance prescribed by Congress. LOYALTY OF T1IB EMPLOYES AT THE wntTE HOUSE' It is but an act of iustico to say, that some of the intimations that have been made in the press against the loyalty of employes at the Whits House, has upon investigation been shown to be without foundation. It is use. less to disguise the fact that the investivation has nndoubt cdly been based somewhat upon a natural prejudice against the existing state of affairs at the White House. Tho doorkeepers and messengers of the President are all democrats, who served poor Pierce and Buchanan?a fact sufficient to stir the ire of loyal republicans, who know that but for tho treason of ono, and tho imbecility and treason of the other, wo should not now bo suffering from a civil war. Men who expended their money aud time to overthrow tho disloyal administrations of Pierce and Buchanan do not fancy tho idea, after travelling thousands of miles to soo the President about a reconstruction of the g overn" ment in this particular section, to Iks met by one of tho Irish democratic messengers of tho traitorous President's with the announcement that "President Lincolu cannot be seen.'' Such a reception grates harshly upou thr feelings of a loyalist In times like tliose. APPLICATIONS FOR MILITARY APPOINTMENTS. The apartments of the Secretary of War are still daily besieged by a host of applicants for appointments In the regular army. Those applications are fruitless, and only serve to annoy the Secretary, as the only appointments left to be mado are Second Lieutenancies, which are re" served as rewards of merit to _bo conferred exclusively ujx'n uon-coromissioned olllcors and privates of the regular army. BRITISH FIUJECTS DISCHARGED FROM THE ARMY. Several soldiers claiming to be British subjects, ami so represented through Lord Lyons, have been discharged iTom the army. ACTING COMMISSIONER OF PENSION?. Hon. William Helmick, of Ohio, Chief Clerk of the Pension Bureau, has boon appointed Acting Commissioner of Pensions during the absence of the Commissioner.

Ho to day, It Is understood, presented to tho Navy Department an elaborate document, with proofs In refutation of the churgos, showing that forgery has boon resorted to for the purposo of injuring and dishonoring hint. \ e,' THE ACADEMY OF ARTE. Tho Academy of Arts, which was orecto ' by W. W.Oorcoran, Esq., is now occupied for go- ut purposes. Military jiossession was taken to ds' A NEW PORT OF ENTIt -CO. I The State Department has b< .ally Informed that the Mexican government ^.ocluimod the port Of Touala, in the State of Chiapas, on the 1'aciflc const, a port of entry, which is openod to foreign auil coastwise commerce. 8KIZCHE OF LOCOMOTIVES BY TUE REBELS. It is reiKirted that tho rebels at I/jeuburg, where their force Is now estimated at thirteen thousand, have taken two of tho locomotives of the Loudon and Hampshire railroad, and traus(>orted them to the Manassas Clap railroad, to bo used u{>on that lino. NEWS FROM FORTRESS MONROE. Forirbk Moniiox, August 25,1 Via Uamtimork, August 20,1801. J Tho formidablo preparations for a naval expedition from Old Point aro about completed. Notwithstanding the rumors about the expedition, its destination is a profound secret. IJeuU'uant Crosby roturned last night from his third expedition to the eastern shore of Virginia, lie wont off Tangier Sound and brought bak a prize schooner. General Wool bus spent part of the day at Newport News. Brigadier General Phelps will probably remain in command of that post. The rebels will hereafter find it very difllcult to commucate with Fortress Monroe by means of spies. No person is allowed to visit Camp Hamilton without a special pass from the commanding General or Psovost Marshal. A slight difficulty occurred yesterday between one of the released rebel prisoners and u volunteer officer. Tlio rebel captain refused the latter a light for his sogar, on the ground that he did not consider our volunteer officers gentlemen, ills defenceless position uione saved him from punishment for the insult. The Honduras steamer E. ShUt, from New York, and intended to run between Trualllo and Havana, lias put into the Bonds for u harbor. TIIE EIGHTEENTH AND NINETEENTH MASSACHUSETTS REGIMENTS EN ROUTE.

ANTICIPATED ATTACK ON THE DAILY NEWS OFFICE. THE rOI.ICE HEI.D IN RESERVE. It was reported last evening that an at tank was to ho made on the New York Daily News establishment, which caused at one timo the gathering of quite a largo crowd in front of the building. It was also rumored that the New York Day Rook oillco and the Journal <jf C"mnurce would meet the sumo fa to, hut up to a late hour this morn itig no signs of a mob had made their appearnnce. Tito Su|K?rintendenl of Police, Mr. John A. Kennedy, having boon duly notified by the proprietors of the several pa|?;s, a strong force of police in the lower wards was h. id in reserve, under Inspector Daniel Carpenter. It is well understood that a secret organization have in contemplation the destruction of these papers, and that money has boon furnishod to pay the ringleaders. Whether they will attempt to carry out their designs, now that the facts havu been made public, and the proprietors of these; journals, as well as the police, placed on their guard, it is very doubtful. It was evidently Intended, from all accounts, that last night should ho the time for putting an end to the publication of th'so journals, but why they did not carry out their designs wo cannot say. SEIZURE OF PACKAGES OF THE DAILY NEWS. Y'esterday morning tho United States Marslial, accompanied by two deputies, proceeded to the ofiico of the A iams Express Company, in Broadway, and seized three largo packages of papers, said to contain copies of the New York Daily Xnvf, and three smaller packages nddressed to the following se? ossion newspai>er agents:?

Tho news of tho death of this distinguished lady lias Just reached us from Europe?news which her many friends and udmlrcrg on this side tho Atlantic will be eor. ry to hoar. Miss Hayes was horn In Limoriclc, Ireland, about tho yonr 1820, and at an early ago showed a most decided talent for music, which was kindly fostered by bor friends, and, thanks to tho then Episcopal Bishop of her native city, she was enabled to receive lessons from lb aecom. plished Professor Sapio in Dublin. Her first appearance in public was iucoucorts,at which sho sang with groatsuccefs the beautiful melodies of lior native land. But with in. creasing years grew ambition, and eho determined to try her |xiwer8 in a wider field, where success is sweeter and fame more brilliant and lasting. She accordingly went to Paris, whoro sho placed herself under the tuition of tho colebrated Spanish toucher, (iarcia, and afterwards pro cooded to Milan, where sho bocarno the pupil or Ronconi. Her debut in opera was made at Maisellies, in Iho "Huguenots," in the year 1845. She was immediately after wards engaged at tho celebrated theatre of I.'iSc da a mnuu, wuurvMlo griiuiuieu inutcrn iiuiu uiu muoi .uoe, .m. nating musical uudienco lu tho world, winning universal admiration tiy tho simplicity ami naturalness ol her manner and tho purity of her voice.

She afterwards visited t'.iliforuia, tho Sandwich Islands, Australia and ludls, ret lrnlng to I/mdoii, where shu appeared at Covent Garden in 1865 At a little later period lier husband died.

In 0|>ora her most successful mlu wore Lucia, iu "I.ucia di lAtnmorm ior," and Linda, in "Linda di fhtmonnl." Site appeared occasionally iu Fug i*b Opera with Miss Novello, where her usual success attended her. In tho judgment of some, however, she was better in concert than on iho stage, and certainly iu the national melodies of her country Miss Hayes h i I no rival.
