neral Floyd and Buckner in reviewing troops. The display was imposing, and the General in command was well pleased with the thorough training and preparation for marching of the various brigades. The Second Kentucky was the observed of all observers. Composed chiefly of the old Kentucky State Guard, and commanded by Col. Hanson, a most capital officer and brave man, the regiment evinced a proficiency in drill and a soldierly bearing which would reflect credit upon the veteran regiments of France. Gen. Floyd was evidently greatly gratified by their appearance as they passed in review. Colonel Hanson will make a figure with his regiment wherever he engages the enemy. Mark that! When we will leave this place, is unknown to me. I get no Dispatch, and hear nothing from Virginia except through the Nashville papers. The election of Mr. Hunter to the Senate gives great satisfaction, as does also that of Mr. Preston. Since the death of Mr. Tyler, the impression is universal that Ho
The purchase of Horses. --From the Lafayette (Ind) Journal, of Jan. 18, we copy the following: How Army Horses are Bought in France.--Horses are purchased at from four to six years of age, and must be of French origin. The animal is brought to the commandant of the allotted depot and submitted to his inspection, without any price being named. If the commandant finds him unsuitable, he is at once rejected; if the contrary is the case, he is brought before all the officers of the depot for a thorough examination. Each officer then writes his estimate of the value of the animal on a slip of paper, the papers are then placed in a hat and shaken up, so that the estimate of each officer may not be known; the mean of these estimates is then taken, and the commandant offers that price for the animal. If the owner accepts the offer, the price is paid at once; if he refuses, the horse is at once sent away, for no bargaining is allowed. How Army Horses are Bought in the United
he sympathies, and if possible, the assistance, of these Governments in behalf of our cause. It is known that much good was accomplished in this manner, and that France, in particular, did assist us secretly long before she became our acknowledged and most valuable ally. It is, therefore, no proof, as the Yankees pretend, of theability of a people to maintain their own rights, that they should be anxious to secure foreign assistance. The American Revolution would have been successful if France had never interfered, and the Yankees, notwithstanding their numerical superiority, have shown even more solicitude to secure friends in Europe than the people ofom this disadvantage, and that is all we have ever asked. We never expected England to fight our battles on land. If we had needed or desired help of that kind, France, the great military power of Europe, was the empire whose and we should have at once sought. But the world must see by this time that we can fight our own battle
resentation the British Government might make before coming to any positive decision. He desires that if Mr. Adams should think it desirable, this dispatch shall be read to me, and also to Lord Palmerston. In answer to Mr. Adams, I touched upon most of the points treated of in the dispatch. I did not think it necessary; however, to recur to the case of Mr. Bunch. With regard to the Confederate privateer, I said that I could not see that our conduct had been different from that of France and Holland, or of Spain. The Sumter had been refused coal from the Government stores of Trinidad, but had been allowed to get coal and provisions from private merchants. The same thing had taken place at Martinique and at Curacoa. I did not find that the rule of twenty-four hours had been observed in practice, but there would be little difficulty in coming to an agreement on this point. In regard to the export of arms and ammunition to the Confederate States, I had lately read the o
