 +The Washington Correspondent of the New York Times gives the following intelligence: 
 +Col. Tait's District of Columbia Volunteers have been assigned to the brigade now 
 +commanded by Col. John C. Robinson of the First Michigan Regiment, and which is doing 
 +duty in guarding the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, between this city and Baltimore. Col. 
 +Robinson is a Captain of the Fifth Infantry United States Army, and has been twenty 
 +years in service, mostly on the frontiers. He was in command of Fort McHenry during the Baltimore riot, and though he had with him only two hundred recruits and a limited armament in the fort, by his firm course prevented the fort from being attacked. His claims are being pressed for an appointment as Brigadier-General.
