at length did, without-seribus molestation
/ either to front or rear.
Here he was indebted more to the Con-
federate Government than to his own
genius for his .shecees. He showed
e energy by the rapidity of his movements,
and displayed skill in interpositg his
army between Pemberton and Johnson;
but if either his courage or his skill had
been extraordinary, he would have
crushed his incompetent awiagnnist in
Vicksburg as easily almost as he had
done at Baker's Creek--a b little over
which the Yankees made a great deal of
noise, but in re.dity no battle at all.;- for

front either Johnson or Lee, where
neither lack-of vigilance, nor lack of

GEN BUTLER'S DEPARTMENT.
VISIT OF COLONEL OULD-THE EXCITEMENT
CAUSED BY IT.
FORTRESS MoNROE, March 30.
An immense excitement was. c re-ted
to-day,by the arrival of Colonel Robert'.
Ould, the reb3l Commissioner of E.x- '
change, accompanied by Captain J. M..
Hatch, his assistant, at'this place. A
few days ago, when Major John E. Mul-
ford, Assistant Commissioner of Ex-
change under Major General Butler,
was at City Point, he made an arrange-
ment with Colonel Ould for the latter to'
visit General Butler; and accordingly'
yesterday afternoon Admiral Lee seni
word to this point that a rebel flag cr
truce was- off Newport News Pointg,
awaiting to hold communication with
the C(minifi-f'-infgGe'ueralr-*ho at-oncn
despatched Major Mulford on board of,
the steamboat Amanda Winants to re;-
ceive the envoy.
The M.eting between Major Mulford,1
Colonel Ould, abid Captain Hatch was,:
of course, as the rul-es in cases of flag of
truce prescribe,. cordial in the extremane,
The weather being very roiAgh at Ati
.time, the. gunboat Roanoke, which
brought Mr. Ould from Richmond to
our lines, Would not very well ride at
anchor off Newport News, and conse-
quently proceeded a few miles- up-th
James river, and waited the coming of
I The Arrival at Fortress Monroe of all
the parties above mentioned occurred at:
ten o clock in the forenoon, the Union
flag of truce boat steaming to the wharf_
with the emblem of peace flying at her
fore, such an event naturally drawingn
together a large crowd. It was not
generally known that Colonel Ould was-
on board, and only on Major Mulford
mentionirg the fact to several did the.
news spread, and the crowd became very
much interested to see 'the man, who, as

the dispos.il of the visitors, and taken to
headquarters, with an immense amount
of papers and books. .
-The appearance of Colonel. Ould to ,a
person who knew him pii,:,r to the break-
ing out'of- this wicked rebellion is onme
of great change. In size the rebel
commissioner is about six feet, and rather
rotund.. His f ce is completely covered '
with a grayish grizzly beard, and a- .
gether he looks like a man who has te
burdens of a -' kingdom" to bear on Whf
shoulders. Colon= -Ould-wwworea-c.

'from the Committee on Foreign Affairs,

J&.solved, That thl Congress of the
United States are unwilling by silence to
leave the Nations of the world under the
imn pre-'on that they are in.differi nt
spect.it,-,rs .f the dplorable events now
transpiring in the Republic of Mexico.
Therefore they think it fit to declare
that it does'not accord with the people
of the United States to acknowledge a
Monarchical Government erected on the
ruins of'any Republican Goverument in
America under the auspices of any Euro-
Mr. Brooks, of New York, (Dem;,),
said if it be nota mere paper fulmina-
tion. I do not object, but if it be a deto
nation only to burst in the House, what
is the use df it? Is anytnirlg to be
done with it? '
Mr. Davis, of Maryblnd, re lied
whether it is a mere paper fulmination
or not, depends upon whether Congress
will adopt it, and whether in adopting
it they represent the opinion of tihe
people of the United States. The reso-
lution is simply a 'declaration of what
our policy should be. touching our inte-

subject any one wishes to -discuss. I
