Butter and Farragut.

--A prominent Confederate naval officer asserted recently in Vicksburg that Com. Farragut and General Butler a quarrel in New Orleans recently about the infamous proclamation of the latter. Com. Farragut denounced it as inhuman and without parallel, and stated that the Federal Government would never approve it. It is also stated that Farragut threatened to withdraw his fleet from the city and leave Butler to the tender mercies of the inhabitants unless he modified the barbarous edict. Should Farragut do this, Butler and his followers would soon fall like "ripe corn before the reaper."
