The Secretary arrived at Fortress Monroe in the night of the 1st day of February. Major Eckert met him on the morning of the 2d of February, with the information that the persons who had come from Richmond, had not accepted in writing the condition upon which he was allowed to give them conduct to Fortress Monroe. The Major and given the same information by telegraph to the President at Washington. On receiving this information the President prepared a telegram directing the Secretary to return to Washington.

He started from Bermuda for Wilmington in the blockade- runner Rattlesnake; but, finding the lights at the entrance of the harbor changed, the steamer put back and came to Nassau. General Preston is a man of full six feet in height and of good appearance. He was called upon by the Governor of this colony and General Ashmore. He left on the 1st of February, in the same steamer, Rattlesnake, for Charleston. The Tallahassee, the rebel war steamer privateer, or pirate, as she is called, according to the respective views of the persons who are speaking of her, came in this port on Thursday, the 26th ultimo. It is said that her armament has been taken out of her, and that she is to be used hereafter as a blockade-runner. There are two reasons which render this very doubtful: First, she is a full-rigged ship, and consequently is too consp

The Yankee Secretary of War, Friday, sent to Congress his annual report, which he says has been delayed in order that Lieutenant-General Grant might furnish a summary of his military operations, but the summary has not been received, as the activity of the campaign in progress demands his unceasing attention. The results of the volunteer recruiting service under the different calls for troops, dated February 1st, March 14th and July 18th, are given in the report of Provost- Marshal-General Fry, who says, in reference to the reenlistment of veteran volunteers during the autumn of 1863, that over one hundred and thirty-six thousand soldiers, who would otherwise, ere this, have been discharged, were secured for three years longer. Organizations which would otherwise have been lost to the service were preserved, and recruits and capable and experienced officers were retained in command. This fore

North Carolina Items. The Committee in the Legislature appointed to consider a Freedmen's Code recommend that the matter be deferred to first Monday in February. The Salem Press says:--Captain Wilson, of Yadkin county, late commander of the First battalion North Carolina sharpshooters, of the Confederate Army, was brought to this place on Tuesday last, by order of the United States military authorities, and delivered to the civil authorities of this county, under an indictment for shooting, or causing to be shot, several citizens of this county, in the month of March last. He was committed to the county jail for trial at the next Superior Court. Captain Wilson was severely wounded in the engagement just previous to General Lee's surrender, causing his foot to be amputated. He fell into the hands of the Federals, and has been under arrest ever since. The people of Charlotte are enrolling for protection against thieves, who infest that town. Messrs. Henry A. Semle

Most of these Southern Congressmen have gone home to spend the holidays, and intend returning in January to prosecute their claims for seats in Congress. From the tone of the leading men in both Houses just before the adjournment, there is reason to believe that the Tennessee Senators and Representatives will be admitted to seats before the 1st of February, and there is good reason to believe that most of the Representatives of the other Southern States will be admitted within a very short time. The opinion is gaining ground that the credentials of the claimants for seats from the Southern States should be referred to the Committee on Elections, and there disposed of without the encumbrance and weight of the loads of reconstruction resolutions offered, and stump-speaking boiled down yet to be presented by members of Congress.-- Correspon
