Richmond Markets, Dec. 27.

There is nothing doing at this time. The mills have suspended operations for the holidays, and there are no breaks at, the Tobacco Warehouses for the same reason. The Money market is unchanged. The want of confidence, in consequence of the unsettled condition of National affairs, prevents the employment of capital and the entering upon now enterprises, and there is almost a complete pause in the world of commerce and industry. It is to be hoped that the beginning of the new year will shed some light upon the State affairs, and enable us to see our way out. But public opinion inclines more than ever to the idea that there is but one remedy, and that is for the Southern States to band together promptly, and form an independent Confederacy.
