e soldiers, as I supposed, has produced discontent in the army, from unequal distribution, etc. No doubt the speculators got control of it, and made money, at least provided for their families, etc. Hon. J. R. Baylor proposes recruiting in New Mexico and Lower California. The Secretary of War opposes it, saying we shall probably require all the trans-Mississippi troops on this side the river. The President differs with the Secretary, and writes a long indorsement, showing the importance o of December, to the President, if ever published, would exculpate the latter from all blame for the march (unopposed) of Sherman through Georgia. Col. Baylor, whom the President designated the other day as the proper man to raise troops in New Mexico, Arizona, Lower California and in Mexico, is the same man who invited the Indians to a council in 1861, to receive presents, whisky, etc., and then ordered them, men, women, and children, to be slaughtered. Even Mr. Randolph revolted at such co

It is desirable to know what disposition Gen. Beauregard proposin pursuance of a resolution of Congress. It seems that Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, and Tennessee will not be represented in the cabinet; this may breed trouble,

aluable stores and supplies are brought, by way of the Northern lines, into Florida; by the port of Galveston and through Mexico, across the Rio Grande. The shipments of cotton made on government account since March 1st, 1864, amount to $5,296,00 the President designated the other day as the proper man to raise troops in New Mexico, Arizona, Lower California and in Mexico, is the same man who invited the Indians to a council in 1861, to receive presents, whisky, etc., and then ordered them, recognize us, which, of itself, would lead inevitably to war. The refusal of the United States to recognize the Empire of Mexico is an offense to France, and the augmentation of the armament of the lakes, etc. is an offense to England. Besides, if irts. Mr. Lincoln's message, in December, certainly gave Napoleon grounds for a quarrel by ignoring his empire erected in Mexico. Mr. Seddon still awaits his successor. He has removed Col. and Lieut--Col. Ruffin from office. Mr. Bruce, M. C.

oudy and thawing. No war news,--but it is known Sherman's army is not quiet, and must soon be heard from in spite of the interdict of the government. It is said Mr. Trenholm, Secretary of the Treasury, is in the market buying gold, and that the fall has already been from $50 to $30 for one. Corn-meal has risen from $50 up to $75 per bushel. Flour to $500 per barrel. Vice-President Stephens has not left the city, but presides in the Senate. Messrs. B. Woolley, Hart & Co., Nassau, N. P., write most pressing letters for the liquidation of their claims against the Confederate States Government. Perhaps they are becoming alarmed after making prodigious profits, etc. Conner's brigade and other troops are en route for South Carolina from Lee's army. Judge Campbell, Assistant Secretary of War, was smoked out of his room to-day, and came into mine. The judge, however, does but little more just now than grant passports into the enemy's lines; permission to specu

The Examiner to-day has another article calling for a convention to abolish the Constitution and remove President Davis. Mr. Seward, United States Secretary of State, escorted Mrs. Foote to her hotel, upon her arrival in Washington. The following official telegram was received at the War Department last night: headquarters, January 15th, 1865. Hon. J. A. Seddon. Gen. Early reports that Gen. Rosser, at the head of three hundred men, surprised and captured the garrison at Beverly, Randolph County, on the 11th instant, killing and wounding a considerable number and taking five hundred and eighty prisoners. His loss slight. R. E. Lee. January 18 Cloudy and cool. Cannon heard down the river. No war news. But blockade-running at Wilmington has ceased; and common calico, now at $25 per yard, will soon be $50. The stupor in official circles continues, and seems likely to continue. A secret detective told the Assistant Secretary, yesterday, that a certain m

The judge gravely beckoned him into the office. I was out; so there must be news, when Mr. H. (so fat) is on the qui vive. Gen. Beauregard has been ordered to the West to take command of Hood's army. The Secretary of War has ordered Col. Bayne to have as much cotton as possible east of Branchville, S. C. The farmers down the river report that Grant is sending off large bodies of troops-so the Secretary says in a letter to Gen. Lee. January 8 Bright and cold. Snowed yesterday, and windy. Gen. Whiting writes that he had only 400 men in Fort Fisher, and it was a miracle that it was not taken. He looked for it, and a determined effort would have carried it. He says there is no reason to suppose the attempt has been abandoned, and it must fall if a sufficient force be no

He favors sending out a commissioner to Europe for aid, on the basis of emancipation, etc., as a dernier ressort. He thinks our cause has rece Some of our sensible men have strong hopes of peace immediately, on terms of alliance against European powers, and commercial advantages to the United States. I hope for even this for the sake of rndication of the Monroe doctrine, i.e. expulsion of monarchies established on this continent by European powers. This aims at France, and to aid our commissioners in their endeavors to divert the blo

the Secretary, exclaimed: To the devil! Mr. Miles introduced a resolution yesterday (in Congress) affirming that for any State to negotiate peace is revolutionary. Ill timed, because self-evident. Gen. Bradley T. Johnson writes from Salisbury, N. C., that because the travel hither has been suspended by the government, the Central Railroad Company of that State refuse to send the full amount of trains for the transportation of soldiers. It must be impressed too. I am assured by one weak place. Perhaps they are from the Valley. The militia regiments are ordered out, and the locals will follow of course, as when Dahlgren came. Hon. Mr. Haynes of the Senate gives information of a raid organizing in East Tennessee on Salisbury, N. C., to liberate the prisoners, cut the Piedmont Road, etc. Half-past 2 P. M. Nothing definite of the reported raid near the city. False, perhaps. No papers from the President to-day; he is disabled again by neuralgia, in his hand, they

w inches in depth during the night-clear and cool morning. The new year begins with the new rumor that Gen. Hood has turned upon Gen. Thomas and beaten him. This is believed by many. Hood's army was not destroyed, and he retreated from before Nashville with some 20,000 men. Doubtless he lost many cannon; but the Federal accounts of his disaster were probably much exaggerated. The cabinet still remains. The President is considered really a man of ability, and eminently qualified to prd the government depot at Charlotte, N. C., has been burned (accidentally), consuming a large amount of corn. We have nothing further of the movement of Grant's troops. We have Hood's acknowledgment of defeat, and loss of 50 guns before Nashville. The papers contain the proceedings of a meeting in Savannah, over which the Mayor presided, embracing the terms of submission offered in President Lincoln's message. They have sent North for provisions-indicating that the city was in a fa

he field. There is a rumor that Goldsborough has been taken. Mr. Secretary Seddon is appointing men in the various districts of the city to hunt up speculators and flour; appointing such men as W. H. McFarland and others, who aspire to office by the suffrages of the people. They will not offend the speculators and hoarders by taking much flour from them. No — domiciliary visits with bayonets alone will suffice. Of thirty Federal deserters sent to work on the fortifications of Lynchburg, all but four ran away. It is understood that the President announced to Congress today the arrest of the Hon. H. S. Foote, member of that body, near Fredericksburg, while attempting to pass into the enemy's lines. This, then, may have been Capt. Norton's secret mission; and I believe the government had traps set for him at other places of egress. Meantime the enemy came in at Savannah. This is considered the President's foible — a triumph over a political or personal enemy will occ
