Large numbers of negroes, cattle, horses and mules were run across the Tombigbee River, at every ferry. Jefferson Davis issued a proclamation calling out, under the rebel conscription act, all white men between the ages of eighteen and forty-five, to serve for three years, under penalty of being punished for desertion in case of disobeying the call. They were offered the privilege of joining volunteer organizations
rs Lexington, Cricket, and Mariner, under the command of Captain Bodie. They returned in the evening, bringing as prizes the steamers Tom Suggs and Kaskaskia.

An expedition under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Phillips, of the Ninth Illinois infantry, left La Grange, Tennessee, for Central Mississippi.--Major-General Burnside issued an order regulating the employment and subsistence of negro laborers. This night a party of rebel cavalry made a descent upon a signal station, located on Water Mountain, near Warrenton, Va., capturing every thing except the officers and one glass.

The officers had sufficient warning to enable them to escape before the enemy

The expedition to Central Mississippi, which left La Grange, Tenn., on the thirteenth instant, returned this day, having met with the greatest success. The force consisted of detachments of the Third Michigan, Second Iowa, Eleventh Illinois, Third Illinois, Fourth Illinois, adges across the Tallabusha River before he retreated from the town, it was wholly impracticable to run the stock North, and so it was given over to the flames, together with the large railroad buildings belonging to the Mississippi Central and Mississippi and Tennessee railroads, which form a junction at that place. Probably the value of the property destroyed was not less than three millions of dollars, and the loss to the rebels is wholly irreparable. The forces of Colonel Winslow and Lieut
nboats Satellite and Reliance, which were captured by the rebels on the twenty-second of August,, were destroyed by the Union forces under the command of General Kilpatrick, at Port Conway, Va.--the guerrilla Hughes, with one hundred rebels, appeared in Burksville, Ky.

The resolution was amended and reads as follows: That it is the duty of Congress to provide by law for the employment in the service of the confederate States of America, in such situations and in such numbers as may be found absolutely necessary, the able-bodie
d editorial: The following communication appears in the Columbia (S. C.) Guardian: to his Excellency Governor Bonham: The stream of negro emigration from Mississippi has commenced flowing into this State, having been prohibited in Georgia and Alabama. The heavy rains of the summer have so damaged the corn crops that the que To this the Augusta Constitutionalist replies: It is untrue that either Georgia or Alabama have refused refuge and domicil to the unfortunate fugitives from Mississippi. Our people are incapable of so outrageous a breach of hospitality. We have before alluded to this matter of emigration, and we do so again more in sorrow t, the confederate force gradually falls back toward the Alabama River, leaving the property of Mississippians almost a total wreck. How shall the resident of Mississippi act under this state of things? If he takes refuge further East, he is censured for leaving home; and if he remains home to raise another crop in the confedera

In the rebel Senate, in session at Richmond, Va., Mr. Brown, of Mississippi, offered the resolution: Resolved, That in the present condition of the country, Congress ought, with the least practicable delay, to enact the following: 1. To declare every white male person residing in the confederate States, and capable of bearing arms, to be in the military service of the country. 2. To repeal all laws authorizing substitutes or granting exemptions. 3. To authorize the President to issue his proclamation requiring all male persons claiming and receivin
defence. --Richmond Enquirer. Major-General S. A. Hurlbut, from his headquarters, Sixteenth army corps, at Memphis, Tenn., issued the following general order: I. The people in the District of West-Tennessee and the northern counties of Mississippi having shown no disposition, and made no attempt to protect themselves from marauders and guerrilla bands, but having submitted themselves, without organized resistance, to the domination of these petty tyrants, and combined, in many instancessupplies for the use of the public enemy, have proved themselves unworthy of the indulgence shown them by the Government. It is therefore ordered, that the lines of pickets around the several military posts of this command, in Tennessee and Mississippi be closed, and that no goods of any description be allowed to pass out, nor any thing be brought in, except fire-wood and provisions, by any citizen, without the written order of some general officer, each of which permits, and the reason for
December 11. The annual report of the rebel Secretary of War was made public. He refers to the operations of the army in its several departments, and says that the campaign in Mississippi was certainly disastrous. It is difficult to resist the impression that its disasters were not inevitable. That a court of inquiry, to investigate the whole campaign, met in Atlanta in September, but in consequence of the vicinity of the enemy, requiring the presence of witnesses and judges at other points, it has been temporarily suspended. It is expected soon to reassemble. A deficiency of resource in men and provisions, rather than reverses in battle, caused the withdrawal of the army to Middle Tennessee. He alludes to desertion, straggling, and absenteeism, and says that the effective force of the army is but little over half or two thirds of the men whose names are on the muster-rolls. He recommends the repeal of the substitute and exemption provisions, and that all having substitu
