Gen. Hitchcock Reconsiders His Resignation

General A. E. [sic] Hitchcock, who recently declined the appointment of Major General of Volunteers, was summoned here from St. Louis some days ago, when he was visited by Mr. Stanton, the Secretary of War.  What transpired at the interview has not been announced but it was of sufficient import to the interest of the country to induce Gen. Hitchcock to reconsider his declination of the Major Generalship. – {Herald’s Correspondence.
