Compliments of the season.

--The British ship Sir Allen McNab, Capt. Chapman, forty days from Liverpool, consigned to Messrs. Gibbs & Co., arrived yesterday forenoon, In tow of the steamer Gordon. Upon nearing Fort Sumter the Captain brought out his light artillery and saluted the Confederate flag now waving over the fort. Immediately the commanding officer returned the compliment with a royal salute. Of course there was nothing political in the salute on either side. Our friend, the Captain, was glad to get into port, and the gallant commander at Sumter only look this way of letting the new comer know that freight on cotton was penny-half-penny for Uplands, and two pence half-penny for Sea Island.--Charleston Mercury, 16th.
