Sharpe's Carbines. --The Southern Federal Union says that while the President had a large cavalry force in Virginia, it is understood he is somewhat deficient in the arms proper for that service. Gov. Brown, of Georgia, was informed of this fact, and promptly offered to loan President Davis five hundred new Sharpe's Carbines, in first rate order, with a full supply of cartridges. The President at once accepted the offer, and the Carbines have been shipped to him at Richmond.

Significant. --The visit of Hon. Henry May, of Baltimore, to Richmond, is regarded as significant of "something behind the curtain" by the knowing ones. Mr. May occupies the position of Representative in the "United States Congress" of the city of Baltimore, having handsomely beaten, at the recent election, that arch-traitor, demagogue and unconditional Submissionist, Henry Winter Davis.--Whatever his visit may signify, we know not; but Mr. May is a high-toned gentlemen, a man of Southern birth, feeling and action, and therefore cannot be otherwise than welcome in Richmond.

Gone away. --Five companies of volunteers, including two rifle corps and the Vicksburg Southrons, left the city on yesterday via Central railroad for the interior. We heard also, that his Excellency President Davis, that started for a brief period to the same destination.
