ring at the head of fifteen hundred men — as good and true as ever shouldered musket or "bit," cartridge. Col. James R. Chalmers now commands the First Mississippi at Washington. Col. Henry D. Clayton, of the First Alabama, is also in the field for a reorganization of his regiment, on whose banner is inscribed the ever-memorable 22d and 23d November, 1861. Two companies of this regiment go out of service on the 17th of January, two on the 19th of February, and the whole corps on the 20th of March. I understand many of the officers, (among them Lieut.Col. Steadman,) as well as the men, intend going in for the war, and keeping up the organization of the First. It is the oldest corps in the Confederate service, and it is to be hoped the pride of Alabama will not permit it to exist in name only. The frigate Niagara left last night, and has not yet returned. Maybe she is on a visit to Ship Island, which bids fair to be as notorious a place as Hatteras Inlet or Hilton Head.

Operations of the enemy on the Southern coast. A private dispatch has been received here, dated at Mobile on yesterday, which states that Picayune Butler is at Ship Island. The dispatch also states that the Federals have nominal possession of Beloxl, and it is believed will occupy all the towns on the coast in that region. They captured two cannon at Beloxi, but there were no small arms there for them to seize. It is stated that they landed there from 5,000 to 7,000 troops, and it is further rumored that they express the desire to push forward their forces to Jackson.
