Gastrula :—lt Elbe come to my knowledge
that many of our citizens engaged in peaceful
avocations have been arrested and imprisoned
becaueq they refuse to take the oath of elle
: suet, to the United Staten, while others by
hard and built trentmeut havebeen compelled ,
to take an oath not to bear arms against the
Goverment. I have learned that about one
hundred of the latter class have recently been
released from Fortress Monroe.
This government refuses to admit the right
of the authorities of the U ited States to arrest
our citizens and extort from their parole not to
render military Service to their country under
the penalty of incurring punishment in case
they fall into the hands of your forces.
I am directed by the Secretary of War to
inform you that such oaths will not be regard
ed as obligatory, and persons who take them
will be required to render military service.
Should your government tteat the rendition of
such service by these persons as a breach of
parole and treat it accordingly, this govern
merit wilt resort to retaliatory measures as the
only means of compelling the observance of
the rules of civilized warfare.

GENZRAL :—Ou the 29th of June last, I was
instructed bp the. Secretary of War to inquire
of Major Oen. McClellan as to the truth of al
leged murders committed on our citizens by
officers of the United States Army.
The cases of Wm. B. Mumford, reported to
have been murdered at New Orleans by order
of Major General B. F. Butler, and Col. Johif
Owen, reported to have been murdered in Mis
souri by order of Major General Pope, were
those referred to.
I bad the honor to be informed by Maj. Gen.
N'Clellan, that be had referod these inquiries
to hirrgrivemment for a reply. No answer has
as yet been received.
The Preeident of the Confederate States has
since been credibly informed that numerous
other officers of the army of the United States,
within the Confederacy, have been guilty of
felonies and capital offences,: which are punish
able by all laws, humane and divine.
I am directed by him to bring to your notice
a few of those best authenticated newspapers
received from the United States, announce as a
tact that Major General . Hunter has armed
slaves for the murder of their masters, and has
done all in•hls power to ,Inaugurate a servile
war, whichis worse than. that of thesavage,
luaernuch,mit owed& Wm, berm to the
indiscriminate slaughter of all ages, sexes and
Brig. General Phelps is reported to have in
fated at New Orleans the example set by
General Hunter on the coast of South Carolina.
Brig Gi3neral N. W. Fitch is stated in the same
journals to have murdered in cold blood ten
peaceful citizens, because one of their men
while invading our country was killed by some
unknown person while defending hie home.
I am instructed by the President of the Con
federate States to repeat the enquiry relative to
the cases of Hinnford and Owen, and to ask
whether the siatement in relation to the action
of • Generale Pinata:, Phelps
,iind Fitch are ad
mitted to be true, and ehether the conduct of
these Generals is, sanctioned by . their govern
I am further directed by his 'Excellency, the
President; to give notice that, in the event of.
not receiving a reply to these inquiries within
fifteen days from the delivery of this letter,,
that it will be assumed that the alleged facts are
true, and are sanctioned by the government of
the United States. In such an event, on that
Government will rest'the responsibility of the
retribution of retaliating measures which ,shall
be adopted to put an end to the merciless atroci
dties which now characterise the war against
the Confederate States.

Further Particulars of the Fire.
Destruction of the Wissahickon Railroad
Bridge and a Large Woolen BBL
hrLwataiaLt, Aug. 13
Robinson's mill, a large four-story atone
structure, located at the junction of the Wis
sahickon and Mid,ge turnpikes, in the Twenty
first Ward, was totally destroyed by fire about
8 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The first and
second stories were occupied by John Dobson,
who was engaged in spinning yarn for blank
ets. Loss estimated at $lO,OOO. Insured for
$,5,000. The third and fourth stories were
occupied by Mrs. Ann Halkyard for manufac
turibg woolen yarns. Loss $65,000. Insured
for $BO,OOO. The mill belonged to the Robe
son estate, and. was valued at $20,000. Insur
ed for $B,OOO. The building is a complete
wreck, only a portion of the wall remaining.
The flames communicated to the large bridge by
which the Philadelphia,. Germantown and Mor
ristown railroad crosses the Wissahicken,and the
superstructure was entirely destroyed. The
abutments are not injured. The bridge
was 428 feet in length and 70 feet in height,
and consisted of three spans. It- was built
of yellow pine, and was covered with tin.—
The structure had been entirely renewed
within a year or eighteen months. Ruin
dye of the abutments, it cost between
$16,000 and $20,000, and is insured for $lO,
090 in the Royal Insurance Company. There
will be but little interference with travel upon
the road. A little more time will be con
sumed to making the trip, as it will be neces
sary to change cars at the bridge. The railroad
company will immediately replace the structure
by an iron truss bridge, which it is expected
will be completed in the course of a month qr
six weeks. A small building used as a carpen
ter shop was partially destroyed, and the dwel
ling of Mr. Jonathan R. Moore, ou the east aide
of the Wissahickon turnpike, made a narrow
escape. The turnpike along the Wissahickon
is completely blocked up by the ruins of the
bridge The fire originated accidentally, and is
attributed to friction in the packer machine.
