The Mobile Advertiser observes that as soon as the war is over the Government of the Confederate States will commence the work of establishing a cordon of strongly fortified posts all along our Northern frontier, to be garrisoned by our standing army.

From Brazil via United States. --Among the late arrivals in the city is that of Spear Nicholas, Esq., who has been engaged as Civil Engineer on the Dom Pedro Railroad, in Brazil, for the last three years. Mr. Nicholas, on account of the Federal blockade, was under the necessity of landing in New York, but fortunately passed through that city, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, and arrived safely in Richmond a few days since.
