The States frigate San Jatinto,

force enough to take them. Capt. WilkoS
thereupon sent an additional force, and
at the same time put the San Jacinto into

The transiportation of our baggage and
provisions for an army of over two thou
sand men besides Cavalry and Artillery
and the .necessary grain for them over a
heavy, sand, and muddy road, for thirty
wiles, is no the least of the incenvenien ,
iences incid et to Such an expedition,and
reminds in much of the account of a
similar occurrence which took place and
proved most disastrous to the British' in
loss of hors s during . the Crimean war in
moving batt ries and the necessary accom

and would erminate as fatally to us had
we as large an army, or no other route.
Gen. Dix hose this route as being more
economical kind less likely to attract the
attention of the rebel readers in a strafe

choose ano her route for.`the rerenforee

own s Sentiments, and that of the, members
of theCompstny generally I believe the
transfer to this Regiment is highly satis
, factoi-y. Unless we are most irefully de
ceived in our eonelnaions, based as they
are on a close: observation, oar Colonel is
a noble-hearted gentlemen, and. a true
.1
soldier. Though yet young he has seen
five Years of service in the regular army.
The other regimental officers men of
a true soldierly and gentleman-like, bear
ing, nearly , all of them too, are like. the
COlonel, yonng men. The Company of
ficerd so fiir as we have made itheir ac
quaintance, are men whom one, can not
but respect ; men who set good examples
for their men; and who, ash consequence.
;exert a good ° influence over them. All
along the read from Harrisburg here we
were praised as being the best behaved
Regiment which had passed along the
'road 'for many a day. We mention this
,fact ifor the _ ; better satisfaction of our
friends at home, who we kriow are anx
iously. waiting for news from .the boys,
and Who, ye feel assured, will feel our
absence ranch. less keenly to know that
the-Organization into which we have been
thrOYo is a good one. We are at presentl
encamped ';just out of the city, a distance,
of perhaps ! , three-fourths of a mile, and a
most beautiful place it is too. The dome,
of the. Capitol rises majesticaly in the dis
tance, constantly reminding us that our
duty, and purpose is to maintain inviolate
the integrity of that. Union over which
float the Stars and Stripes—that fittiog
emblem of, our country's greatness. In
order to get some idea , of the vastness of ,
the preparptiOns made by Government for
the suppression of rebellion and restora
tion of peace and harmony, one should
be right. here at head-quarters. True,
wheii ITO read of the reniments which one'
after'' another, are transported in rapid
succession; frOm points both near and re
mote, tothe' national rendezvous, we'
are apt to-think that we know nearly all
worth knoling in regard to the war; but
when we get right here, and . when for
miles troops are stationed in every diree
tion,l then is it that we sit down and sagely'
conclude that we knew nothing before ,
and but little even now; We are rapidlr
apidly
becoming . accustomed to the din of. war,
for almost copstantly yesterday we were
greeted, by the distant boom of heavy
cannonading.; Greenhorns. that we were,
we had suppesed a battle on the Potomac.
The firing was in that direction. Again
too was Or curiosity awakened and many
conjectures brought. up in the evening by
the most ; splendid display of fire-works
which it has ever been our fortune 36,
witness. A.constant succession of rockets
thrown to a great height and bursting in
mid air, displaying the symbolic red;
white aid blue, caused some of us to
think that our conjecture sof a battle were
correct, and this - display in honor of a
victory giined, 'while others thought
the lights Were - signals denoting an ad.
vance movement on the partof the rebels.
The thing turned out however quite dif
ferently. This morning when the news
boys came to camp with the morning pa
pers, there was a general rush among the
officers to obtain them. Of course we
were anxioue to know what was the,occa
sion of the display in quistion. Well we
didl get a paper and lo and behold! Gen.
Blenker's Brigade had been complirnen-,
ing Gen. McClellan on his succession 4 -
tbe chief command of the United States
Artily. ;Thus you see was all our splen
did , conjectures of great naval victories ,)
of hasty, advance movements upon.either
side,i'skedaddled."
Speaking of advance movements, I can
see no reason why Government should be
in any hurry to make an advance at pres.
cot. My SuppoSition is this, the rebels
haire now and forsome time have had every
thing available in the ranks, rag, shag;
bobtail and all,, whereas we have an im-.
mense body of men, who to be effective
need nothing but the drill and arms, all
of which are rapidly being attained. In
addition, there is daily arrivinghere from
one to two regiments mere, and probably ,
many thousands are rendezvousing at
other great' - military depots. Hence the
conclusion that every day adds to our
effective strength, whOe the supply not
yet.. drawn 'upon is, immense, Con the
centrary, the rebels can be gaining nothing
unlesi it be in efficiency with arms, and
even this ,we suppose to be counter bal
anced by demoralization. Unless we
greatly' err,' somebody ' is` certain to lie ' '
whipped and that soundly tdb; but When:,
