The Eighth of January in New-Orleans.--In our celebration of this day, then, let it be borne in mind that it is with no pride and exultation in the triumph of our arms over the British, with no unkindly reminiscences of them, but with a conscious valor and resolution to maintain our soil and our honor against all invaders, and with a feeling predominant over all others, of inextinguishable hate and undying hostility against the enemy who, in a far worse cause and in a manner more unjustifiablustifiable and barbarous, now pollutes our soil with his foot-prints. Great and signal as was the victory on the plains of Chalmette, a far more splendid and glorious triumph will that be which shall send the infamous Yankees howling in disgrace and agony from our shore back to their impoverished and blighted homes. The anticipation of such a victory, far more than the event of which this is the anniversary, will give significance to the celebration of this day. N. O. Crescent, January 8.
A French Officer Joins the Rebels.--By a recent arrival at a confederate port from Havana, Lieut. P. Enneau, late of the French army, came passenger, and is at present in this city. Lieut. Enneau has lately been a resident of California, where he devoted himself to organizing and drilling a corps of carabiniers, whose testimonials of their high appreciation of his service he bears. But preferring the reality to the image of war, and still more, preferring the side on which the sympathies of his compatriots are enlisted, and where so much of the blood of his race is to be found, as ready to flow as that of the gallant Dreux —— preferring this side to that which has thrown disgrace upon the name of Zouave, and almost upon that of soldier, he has come to offer his sword to the cause of the Confederacy. Mobile Advertiser, January 8
Philadelphia, Jan. 7.--Some of our banks refuse to take Treasury notes on deposit. A very bad feeling is getting up toward the banks, and if they do not alter their course there will not be a dozen banks in the United States in a year from now. The cry is being raised: Down with the banks, and give us a national currency. N.. Y. Herald, January 8.
ayne, near the line of Russell County, they violated the person of a Mrs. Dean in the presence of her father-in-law, an infirm old man aged ninety, and left her nearly dead, and committed a like fiendish act upon two sisters named Harris, and treated them so barbarously that they have since died, or rather Mr. Green has heard a report of their death. In several of our border counties half of the male inhabitants are in the Union armies. Russell, with a voting population of nine hundred and fifty, has sent five companies to the field, and about seventy more men are scattered in other commands. There are no more loyal people in the State than in the counties of Russell, Cli<*>ton, Cumberland, and Monroe, the four counties having furnished at least two thousand five hundred soldiers. These men have all been withdrawn from the protection of their homes, so that rebel marauding parties are ravaging the counties without a single soldier to oppose them. Louisville Journal, January 8.
