A letter from Richmond, Va., dated Dec. 12, says: The object of the Nashville's visit to Europe appears to puzzle Lincoln and his friends to a considerable degree. Certainly there must be something intended of importance, something to damage them, or the undertaking to run the blockade and proceed across the Atlantic would not have been adventured. The taking out of Confederate naval officers, wherewith to supply commanders for first-class frigates to be purchased in Europe, does not seem a perfectly satisfactory explanation. Those who know Captain Pegram would not be surprised to hear of any brilliant achievement being performed by him, of which the Nashville is capable, before he reports himself again to the Navy Department in this city. If the good people of some New England seaport town should wake up one of these fine mornings, and find their homes in flames, they may console themselves with reading of the exploits of one John Paul Jones of the long, long ago. It is
verses of Haggai ch. IV.: Behold, there shall be rebellion in the South, a rebellion of strong men and archers, of chariots and bright shields; and the blast of the trumpet shall awaken the land, and the nations shall be astonished thereat. And lo, behold, because of the sin of the South, her mighty men shall be as babes, her gates shall be destroyed utterly, saith the Lord; yea, utterly destroyed shall be her gates, and her rice fields shall be wasted, and her slaves set free. And behold, great ships from the North shall devour her pride, and a storm from the West shall lay waste her habitations. Yea, saith the Lord, and her dominion will be broken. This Prophecy was published generally throughout the United States, Canada, and some parts of England. Now if that Divine can find Chapter IV., or any such prophecy as the above in Haggai, his Bible must be a new edition. It will not do for these eminent Divines to know so much. Truth. --Louisville Journal, Dec. 12.
