President Davis and President Lincoln. --By the Constitution of the United States and of the Confederate States, the President is Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy. In times of peace, and in the case of Presidents who have not been educated in the camp, the Executive of the United States has generally been content, in conformity with the wise suggestion of a former Chief Magistrate, to "leave military matters to military men" President Lincoln seems to act upon this principle, and to sedulously avoid all interference with the military control of the army. We are not disposed to dispute the discretion of this proceeding in his case, but he might at least exhibit himself on the field of battle, and share the perils to which he is inviting so many better men than himself.--In European Governments the Kings generally fight side by side with the peasants in behalf of their common country, but his Majesty, Abraham, the Rail Splitter, is too magnificent a potentate to hazard hi

Davis informs us that he saw five vessels near this place--one off Bull's Island, a second off Dewees, a third well off shore, and two near Ship Bar. One of them had a schooner without a fore-topmast in tow, which is supposed to be the same vessel that was noticed some days ago near Stono. Sale of a vessel.
