The Southern Cabinet

--A Washington dispatch to the New York Herald says that according to news from Montgomery, President Davis was arranging his Cabinet, and it was understood that the following will probably be the cast:

Secretary of State, Herschell V. Johnson, Ga.; Secretary of War, P. O. Hider, La; Secretary of the Navy, S. R. Mallory, Fla.; Secretary of the Interior, W. Porcher Miles, South Carolina; Post-Office Department, J. H. Hemphill, Texas; Attorney General, John A. Elmore, Ala.

Should Benjamin be made Attorney General, instead of Elmore, John Forsyth will go into the War Department. Messrs. Toombs and Slidell will probably be sent as Ambassadors to England and France respectively.
