From Montgomery

--The Macon (Ga.) Telegraph says:

‘ "From a party in a position to know, we learn that the military plans of President Davis are but very partially disclosed even to Congress itself. The President reposes perfect confidence in the capacity and qualifications of General Lee. Men are proffered in abundance; of money there is enough for the present, and if the war should be protracted, which it is believed will be the case, favorable prospects are opening for the future. The utmost confidence exists of maintaining Southern honor and independence. Mr. Russell, the special correspondent of the London Times, left Montgomery amply satisfied on these points: 1st. The order, docility and loyalty of our servile population.--2d. The substantial unity of our people in this struggle for independence. 3d. The utter impossibility of reconstructions,"
