January 1 Seward has cowered beneath the roar of the British Lion, and surrendered Mason and Slidell, who have been permitted to go on their errand to England. Now we must depend upon our own strong arms and stout hearts for defense. January 2 The enemy are making preparations to assail us everywhere. Roanoke Island, Norfolk, Beaufort, and Newbern; Charleston, Savannah, Mobile, Pensacola, and New Orleans are all menaced by numerous fleets on the sea-board, and in the West great numbers of iron-clad floating batteries threaten to force a passage down the Mississippi, while monster armies are concentrating for the invasion of Tennessee and the Cotton States.

I noticed that one of the brass pieces sent down by Lee to go to North Carolina had been struck by a ball just over the muzzle, and left a glancing mark toward the touch-hole. That ball, prob. ably, killed one of our gunners. January 2 A dispatch from Gov. Harris gives some additional particulars of the battle near Murfreesborough, Tenn.

I think we can put some 200,000 additional men in the field next year, and they can be fed also. January 2 Yesterday was the coldest day of the winter, and last night was a bitter one. This morning it is bright and cleat, and moderating. We have had no snow yet. There is much talk everywhere on the subject of a dictator, and many think a st

he slaves will certainly be lost. Thus we begin the new year-Heaven only knows how we shall end it! I trust we may be in a better condition then. Of one thing I am certain, the people are capable of achieving independence, if they only had capable men in all departments of the government. The President was at St. Paul's to-day, with a knit woolen cap on his head. Dr. Minnegerode preached a sermon against the croakers. His son has been appointed a midshipman by the President.

Wise dancing attendance in the Secretary's room. He looks seasoned and well, and may be destined to play a leading part in human affairs yet, notwithstanding his hands have been so long bound by those who contrive to get possession. It is this very thing of keeping our great men in the backgroun
