FOATESSS MO.TROB, Wednesday, April 9, Since Monday morning, a steady northeast wind and rain-storm has been prevailing here, which haS greatly retarded military operations In this region. The army of the Potomac li in front of Yorktorcn, twenty miles distant. The roads are dreadful, and yet all the provisions for men and horses of an army far above the average of numbers, even in this great war, have lo be drawn over the Intervening space. Given bad roads, a sweeping wind and blinding rain, for now tlie third day, and you have a' clear idea of campaigning for Uw Union under dlfficulUes. Great exertions are making to prepare landing points nearer the army. Ship Point; in Poquosln Bay, juat below York River, is the most advanced post for a wharf; but the very rough weather of the past Uirce days has delayed operations there. To-day Is busy with preparaUons to reinforce Oen. McCuiiAfl with Henry siege artillery. As soon as it Is in position, you will hear the heaviest thunder of the war. The 5. R.

The censorship of the Press has been carried here to the extreme of severity. Let- ters addressed to editors or proprietors of newspapers must be submitted to military Inspection and if this Is not and such letters are found in the Post- office, they are detained until permed by the Mllltnry Censor.
