arity, and in no way connected with politics. Cotton at New York is unsettled at 32--Exchange on London is 113½. The Government has experienced great disappointment at the unfitness of the vessels lately purchased to swell the fleet of Burnside's great failure. The fact is attracting great attention among the people, and loud complaints are heard. The Herald says, this Burnside matter must be sifted. It is confident there is rottenness somewhere else than in the old hulks sent down Burnside matter must be sifted. It is confident there is rottenness somewhere else than in the old hulks sent down to crush the South. The great war-tax bill is being perfected in its details. The French frigate Fortune has arrived in Hampton Roads, and reports no fleet in the Roads. The New York Journal of Commerce says that the exciting foreign news gives room for grave solicitude for the future. The tone of the French news is more unfavorable to the United States than that from England. Another grand Federal expedition is fitting out at Cairo — destination unknown. The Federal wa
orth Carolina now menaced by the Yankee forces that are striving to "possess the land." We have no late news here from the North Carolina coast. What I know of our army movements relative thereto, I will not state. It is not improbable that the enemy will shortly attack Roanoke Island, and if successful, which is by no means certain, an attempt will be made to take possession of Elizabeth City, and other small towns on the sounds and rivers. It is also believed by some persons that Burnside's intention is, if possible, to concentrate a large force in the neighborhood of Elizabeth City, and thence march towards Norfolk for the purpose of an attack in the rear.

" The Richmond Railroad Convention — the inside track, &c. The Herald, of New York, surmises that the proposed Railroad Convention, to be held in this city on the 5th February, (to-day,) will have for its main object the completion of an unfinished gap of some forty miles, more or less, of an inside line of railroads between Richmond and the South, running down through the western part of North Carolina, and at a pretty safe distance from the army of Buell, in East Tennessee, and of Burnside, in Eastern North Carolina. Jeff. Davis, in his last message to Congress, referred to the importance of finishing the work required to open this inside track. But the chances are now that the Richmond Railroad Convention will be too late; for, in all probability before this inside line is completed our co-operating Union armies, east and west, will have made a connection across North Carolina. As the rebels understand the game, they will doubtless go to work with some energy; but the
