X. January, 1862 Seward gives up Mason and Slidell. great preparations of the enemy. Gen. Jackson betrayed. Mr. Memminger's blunders. exaggerated reports of our troops in Kentucky and Tennessee. January 1 Seward has cowered beneath the roar of the British Lion, and surrendered Mason and Slidell, who have been permitted to go on their errand to England. Now we must depend upon our own strong arms and stout hearts for defense. January 2 The enemy are making preparations to assail us everywhere. Roanoke Island, Norfolk, Beaufort, and Newbern; Charleston, Savannah, Mobile, Pensacola, and New Orleans are all menaced by numerous fleets on the sea-board, and in the West great numbers of iron-clad floating batteries threaten to force a passage down the Mississippi, while monster armies are concentrating for the invasion of Tennessee and the Cotton States. Will Virginia escape the scourge? Not she; here is the bulls-eye of the mark they aim at. January 3 T

scription Act of last April, authorizing the President to call into the military service all residents between the ages of thirty-five and forty-five. The first act included only those between the ages of eighteen and thirty-five. By the 1st of January there will be $300,000,000 Treasury notes in circulation. It is proposed in Congress to make a forced loan of one-fifth of the incomes of the people. It is said Lincoln has issued a proclamation declaring the slaves of Rebels free, on anwill be said that we had great men in this Congress? Whatever may be said, the truth is, there are not a dozen with any pretensions to statesmanship. September 29 We have Lincoln's proclamation, freeing all the slaves from and after the 1st January next. And another, declaring martial law throughout the United States! Let the Yankees ruminate on that! Now for a fresh gathering of our clans for another harvest of blood. On Saturday the following resolutions were reported by Mr. Sem

ed, it would have affixed the stigma of infamy to the government in all future time, and might have doomed us to merited subjugation. November 5 Major Ruffin, in the Commissary Department, says the army must go on half rations after the 1st of January next. It is alleged that certain favorites of the government have a monopoly of transportation over the railroads, for purposes of speculation and extortion! November 6 I believe the commissaries and quartermasters are cheating the eon, a Pitt, and a Washington, all great nation-makers, would have deemed this work worthy their attention. Only three days ago the President wrote to the Secretary that the idea of trading cotton to the enemy must be postponed until the first of January, and perhaps indefinitely, but now he informs Mr. Randolph that he has sent the requisite authority to his friend, Gov. Pettus, to launch out in that trade. No, the people have made the nation. It is a people's war, and it is the moment

s this house will be occupied by its owner. I have advertised for boarding in the country, but get no response. It would require $300 per month to board my family here, and that is more than my income. What shall we do? Trust in God! December 26 We have no news to-day — not even a rumor. We are ready for anything that may come. No doubt the assailants of Mobile, Wilmington, or Charleston, will meet with determined resistance. The President will be in Richmond about the first day of January. I saw a man who traveled with him in Alabama. Vicksburg, I understand, cannot be taken by water. And Grant, the Federal general, is said to be retreating out of Mississippi. December 27 The successes in the West have been confirmed. Morgan captured 2000 and Van Dorn 1500 prisoners at Holly Springs. They likewise destroyed a large amount of stores. We have intelligence of a great armament, under Gen. Sherman, sailing from Memphis against Vicksburg. At the last accou

Rains blows himself up. Davis would be the last to give up. Gov. Vance protests against Col. August's appointment as commandant of conscripts. financial difficulties in the United States. January 1 This first day of the year dawned in gloom, but the sun, like the sun of Austerlitz, soon beamed forth in great splendor upon a people radiant with smiles and exalted to the empyrean. A letter from Gen. H. Marshall informed the government that Gen. Floyd had seized slaves in Kentucky and refused to restore them to their owners, and that if the government did not promptly redress the wrong, the Kentuckians would at once take the law into their own hands. We had a rumor (not yet co

are getting large reinforcements, and are at work on their island batteries. There was a slow firing-and but one man killed. It is believed that Governor Letcher will, reluctantly, call the Legislature together; but he says the members will exhibit only the bad spirit of the people they represent. What that means, I know not. The Governor elect-commonly called Extra-Billy Smith has resigned his brigadiership. But he is a candidate for a majorgeneralship, until inauguration day, 1st January. He has had an interview with the President, and proposes to take command of the troops defending the city — that Gen. Elzey may take the field. Smith would undoubtedly have a strong motive in defending the capital-but then he knows nothing of military affairs, yet I think he will be appointed. Gen. Wise's batteries crippled and drove off the enemy's monitor and gun-boats day before yesterday. The monitor was towed down the James River in a disabled condition. To-day, for the t

January 1 A bright windy day, and not cold. The President has a reception to-day, and the City Councils have voted the hospitalities of the city to Brig.-Gen. J. H. Morgan, whose arrival is expected. If he comes, he will be the hero, and will have a larger crowd of admirers around him than the President. The Councils have also voted a sword to ex-Gov. Letcher, whose term of service ended yesterday. Gov. Wm. Smith-nicknamed Extra-Billy — is to be inaugurated to-day. Flour is now held at $150 per barrel. Capt. Warner has ju

Sunday, January 1 Snowed a few inches in depth during the night-clear and cool morning. The new year begins with the new rumor that Gen. Hood has turned upon Gen. Thomas avidently. Gen. Withers, Alabama, denounces the inefficiency of the conscript system. Lieut. Beverly Kermon writes from the Rappahannock that thus far (to Jan. 1st) our movements (in connection with Capt. T. N. Conrad) are perfectly secret. The next day he was to go to the Potomac. What has the Secretary sent him there fo clerks think the money has been retained for speculative purposes. It remains to be seen whether the President will do anything in the premises. The grand New Year's dinner to the soldiers, as I supposed, has produced discontent in the army, from unequal distribution, etc. No doubt the speculators got control of it, and mad
