The Columbus Times publishes a letter from a delegate to the Southern Congress, in which he says: "We intend to put the strongest force in the field which can be raised, and the President will accept from the States all the men that may be tendered. They will be received with their own officers, but the President must settle all questions of rank and position under the authority of Congress. My information is, that Davis will endeavor to secure for the officers of the U. S. Army, who have resigned, the best positions first, upon the ground that they are experienced and capable. There has, as yet, been nothing done by the Congress as to the raising of troops, except, possibly, in committee. We are delaying much time over the most trivial matters. We have a set of new men, uninformed upon the laws of the United States, and all anxious to speak."

Fatal bridal tour. --Among the unfortunate passengers of the ill-fated steamer Charmer, burnt on the night of the 10th inst., below Donaldsonville, La., were a young married couple about whom no one among the saved persons could give the least information. It is now ascertained that the husband was Dr. H. C. Middleton, of Holmes county, Miss., who was married but three days before to Miss Laura, the daughter of Wm. S. Parrott, Esq., formerly Consul General of the United States to Mexico. The ceremony took place at the residence of W. F.
