Foreign Affairs, to the Prussian ambassador at Washington, on the Trent affair: Berlin,Dec. 25, 1861. Monsieur Le Baron:The warlike measures which President Lincoln has taken by sea against the Southern States, which have separated from the Union, were calculated immediately upon their occurrence to inspire upon his Majeto depend. As far, however, as we are informed of them, we entertain the conviction that no terms have been proposed by England, by which the dignity of President Lincoln could reasonably be offended. His Majesty the King, animated by the sincerest wishes for the well being of the United States of North America, had desired me to advocate the cause of peace with President Lincoln, through you, in the most emphatic manner. We should consider ourselves fortunate if we succeeded by this means in contributing to a peaceable solution of a conflict out of which the greatest dangers may spring. It is possible the President may have already decided upon

n from jumping Branch, Mercer county, that four of our militia pickets were taken prisoners on Friday night last by the Yankees. One of the prisoners captured was a Mr. Beckley, son of the General of the same name. It is also stated that Mrs. Gen. Beckley was robbed of four hundred dollars, left with her for safe keeping. I learn from unquestionable authority that a most diabolical outrage has been perpetrated upon one of the best and most respected ladies of Mercer county by five of Lincoln's friends. The husband of the lady whose person was violated is at this time in the Confederate service. The hellish set were led on by a Union man, said to be named Cales. How long are we to endure these things in Western Virginia? There was sent from Monroe county a few days ago one of the most dangerous Union men in the county. One of his brothers has said that all those engaged in his arrest will be taken to Columbus. A great deal of sickness prevails in this county at the
did Cameron's report, before modified by the President, recommend? The arming of the slaves for the slaughter of their master! And yet this man was retained by Lincoln in his Cabinet. Oh! for one hour of General Jackson at Washington. [Tremendous applause] Wouldn't there be a rattling of day bones among the pickers and stealerar. He never intended to endorse anything which came out of that miserable Nazareth, this Republican Administration. You might talk to him about the honesty of Abe Lincoln — about his conversation on the slavery question. He was as corrupt as those who surround him, and unfortunately, the smallest load in the puddle! He was — alas for preserving the Union by propositions of peace. He stood in this respect on Andrew Jackson's ground. But they said there was no body to compromise South. Lincoln had said a majority of the people there were Union men, if the Crittenden compromise had been adopted there would to-day have been no such thing as secession in t
The Lincoln blockade. There is no doubt that the present blockade has its inconveniences, and, in some respects, serious disadvantages. We are by means disposed to close our eyes to them, nor to underrate them. It is no consolation that foreign nations, by permitting this obstruction to a commerce in which so many millions of the Old World are interested, are inflicting an injury and loss upon their own subjects greater than that which we ourselves suffer. We all know and feel that if the blockade were opened, the war might last fifty years without exhausting the resources or endangering any vital part of the Southern Confederacy. But, conceding the value of open ports in some most important respects to the Southern cause, there are advantages flowing from the present state of things which are equally undeniable, and which must prove of more value in the end than any one could gain by immediate and unobstructed commerce with Europe. The South has been reduced to a state
e President's levee. The President's levee to-night was largely attended, and was one of the most brilliant of the season, not withstanding the weather was exceedingly unfavorable in consequence of the muddy streets and a raging snow storm, which commenced about 8 o'clock.--The President was in fine spirits over the news of the victory in Kentucky, and the safe arrival of Gen. Burnside in Pamlico Sound. He had a cheerful word to say to most every person who paid their respects to him. Mrs. Lincoln appeared in pure white, her dress being an elegant figured brocade. She was escorted through the great East Room by Gen. Cameron, ex-Secretary of War. Mr. Stanton, the new Secretary of War, was present, and was most cordially received by the President and distinguished guests present. Among the foreign Ministers present were the representatives from Russia, Spain, Sweden, Italy, and New Granada.--Most of the Cabinet ministers and families were present. The rich dresses of the ladi
Federals on the Eastern shore. The designs of Lincoln become developed more and more as his victim is more securely bound in his grasp, and the hope of escape becomes less. By an edict, every boat is to be destroyed capable of being used by refugees to cross the bay? This is the prelude; then that people, vainly trusting to the proclamation of the notorious Dix for protection and safety, are required to go through the mummery of an election of men to mis- represent them in the Wheeling Yet the military rule of the despotism, in the face of most solemn promises, decrees that an unlawful election shall be held; and gentlemen are to be turned out of office, and degraded tools of a loathsome tyranny be placed in their stead to do Lincoln's bidding. The people under military threat, are forced to submit to this high-handed outrage. It has been supposed among civilized nations that a people in the military possession of the enemy had at least some rights; but it seems to be rese
