ge, comfortable apartment, connected with his office, where those servants who are not provided with places to stay at night during the hiring, may remain, with a good fire, free of charge. Negroes for hire the coming year, had better be sent in to me as early after Christmas as possible. To those at a distance to whom I am personally unknown. I beg to refer to the following persons; Dickinson, Hill & Co., Richmond; Dr. Thomas Latane, Arthur Temple, John Lumpkin, Thomas Fauntleroy, King and Queen county; Dr. F. D. Wheelwright, Rev. Thomas E. Locke, Westmoreland county; John L. Latane, W. C. Latane, Dr. John Lewis, King William county; Geo. Turner, Richard Turner, F. Maginniss, Thomas Lee, King George county; Ro.

of Vermont, smiled a placid smile, as is his wont Senator Wilson--made of more partisan stuff — bit his lip to disguise his discontent. Senator Wade sat stiff, with rugged earnestness, and, with fingers intertwisted, twirled his thumbs; while Senator King preserved that equanimity which he rarely permits to be ruffled. He sat up straight, his hands in his pockets, his head embedded on the top of his paunchy protuberance, looking like Falstaff at the Boar's Head waiting for Bardolph and the muggoes out as Commissioner on the part of South Carolina, to arrange some system with foreign governments respecting their varied interests, and more particularly in regard to opening commercial facilities and direct trade with the South. T. Butler King has been appointed Commissioner on the part of Georgia for a similar purpose, and will leave for Europe in a few days. Other Southern States are taking the initiative steps for the same line of policy. It is said they have positive assuranc
One of the New York Senators. A correspondent of the New York Express reminds Senator King, of New York, who denounced the Commissioners of South Carolina as "worse than Aaron Burr or Benedict Arnold," of his course during the Canada rebellion, inveigling young men into lodges for the purpose of invading Canada.--The writer asks: "Who was the Benedict Arnold then? Who sought the protection of a lunatic asylum to save himself from the indignation of the friends of his victims? And whose ready to denounce traitors as those who know by experience what treason is?"
Direct trade with the South. The Hon. T. Butler King, one of the Commissioners to Europe from the Southern Confederacy, has published a pamphlet detailing the advantages of a direct trade with the South to European powers, and urging the establishment of steamship lines from Savannah and other ports in the South. Some of the salient points in the argument of the honorable gentleman are embraced in the extracts which follow: "We hope to be able to demonstrate," writes Mr. King, in a rapid review of the question, the necessity of establishing, with as little delay as possible, a direct line of transatlantic steamships between France and the Confeder at least two millions of bales of cotton, large quantities of flour and grain, tobacco, timber, and immense stocks of export products of every species." Mr. King then gives a minute description of the geographical situation of Savannah, depth of water in the river, means of approach and lading of large vessels, &c. Simila
A Secessionist Loses a Legacy. --Henry King, a wealthy resident of Allentown, Pa., died a few weeks since, leaving an estate valued at $300,000. He died childless. He was a brother of T. Butler King, one of the Commissioners of the Confederate States, now in Europe. Mr. King had made a will leaving half of his property to his wife and the other half of his property to his wife and the other half to his brother, but a few weeks before his death, exasperated at the secession sentiments of ng an estate valued at $300,000. He died childless. He was a brother of T. Butler King, one of the Commissioners of the Confederate States, now in Europe. Mr. King had made a will leaving half of his property to his wife and the other half of his property to his wife and the other half to his brother, but a few weeks before his death, exasperated at the secession sentiments of his brother, he made a new will, leaving most of his property to his wife, and the remainder to charitable purposes.
T. Butler King and Southern Experts. It is often meritorious to understate a fact assuring to one's advantage; but we are greatly surprised that Mr. T. Butter King, in his recent pamphlet publisKing, in his recent pamphlet published in Europe, upon the trade and resources of the South, should have put down our exports at the low figures of $150,000,000. If he had stated them at double that amount he would still have been shorow that the exports of the late United States were between three and four hundred millions; and Mr. King's statement of Southern exports at only one hundred and fifty millions, places those of the souo the sales of $191,806,555, as officially reported by the United States Secretary of Treasury. Mr. King is a citizen of a cotton State, and yet states the total exports of the South at forty-odd milled millions per annum. In view of these facts, we are quite astounded at the understatement of Mr. King, and we trust that our authorities here will instruct him to take an early opportunity to corre
t were attended by a vast throng, and the appearance of the house carried the mind back to the times when we knew nothing of warlike scenes except through he minded representations of the stage. Although the interest of the occasion was in came degree lessened by circumstances which be manager was unable to control, the audience was disposed to be lenient, and every thing passed off as well as could have been expected. The opening address, by Miss Ella Wren, was well received, and we can say in behalf of this young lady that she created a highly favorable impression upon the minds of the spectators, to many of whom she was a arranger. We may speak of others of the company after we have a more favorable opportunity of judging of their merits. The performances of "King's Infant Drum Corps." constituted a prominent feature of the night's entertainment, and took the audience by surprise. We are assured that valuable accessions to the dramatic company will be made at in early period.
bold thinkers to take this anti slavery prejudice bull by the horns, how much more so does it seem necessary here ? The more reflecting and intelligent English and Frenchmen feel that they have held and promulgated erroneous views; but few dare assume the task of teaching the opposite. When I first went to Paris, at the end of July, it may be said that every newspaper was against us — some negatively — and others not only positively, but bitterly. Soon after three brochures--one by Hon. T. Butler King, one by Judge Pequet, whose charming lady, by-the-way, was from (Richmond,) and a third by M Eruest Bellotdes Minieres — made their appearance. Immediately, almost. the tone of the press changed. In a single day twelve of the journals of France came out in long and very favorable criticisms upon M. Bellot's pamphlet, I certainly never saw a more strongly marked revulsion upon any subject than that of the French press upon this. So much for pamphleteering in France. The same remed<
might be declared and with a view to prevent such an embarrassing difficulty, we copy the ordinance, as follows: Be ordained.
