that these instructions were sent to Mr. Adams and Mr. Dayton. As there seems to be some sensitiveness in business circles about the recent seizures of telegraphic dispatches in all the principal Northern towns and cities, and a general apprehension that private business transactions may be exposed, it may not be improper to assure the public that there is no danger of any such exposure. Allen A. Burton, of Ky., has been appointed Minister resident to New Granada in the place of Gen. Jones, of Iowa. The belief that the President has determined to tender Col. Fremont a Major Generalship, elicits much gratification. Ex-Governor Banks is here by invitation of the Secretary of War. Brig. Gen'l McDowell, United States army, is to have command of the forces operating towards Richmond. It is understood to be General Scott's policy to put the younger class of officers into field service, and therefore it is said that Col. Meigs is employed on other duties than what r
Trading with the enemy. --Yesterday morning Eugenio Pacolini, Captain of the schooner Hortense, and Vincennes Calduco and Peter Pios, the crew of said vessel, were brought before the Hon. W. G. Jones, Judge of the Confederate District Court, for the District of Alabama, to undergo preliminary examination upon a charge of treason against the Confederate States, for having on or about the 15th inst., supplied the enemy's fleet, stationed off Santa Rosa Island, with provisions. Several witnetter an opportunity of summoning their witnesses. Besides, the arrest of the parties alleged to have been engaged in this illicit traffic, the vessel itself was libelled by the Confederate Attorney for condemnation as a prize of war. Judge Jones took occasion to remark, from the bench, that trading with the enemy was an act of treason, punishable with death. A penalty which, under present circumstances, would rigidly be enforced against offenders.--He said nothing short of a reasonab

and encounter between a Confederate Captain and a Yankee officer. One personal encounter is worthy of record. As Captain Jones, of company B, 17th Mississippi, was passing through the woods at the head of his men, he met another party headed by an officer. The two halting instantly upon discovering their close proximity, Jones exclaimed, "For God Almighty's sake, tell me quick — friends or enemies — who are you?" The other replied. "We are friends," and at the same time advanced. A litout, "Captain, they are not friends; don't you see they have not guns like ours. They are Yankees — let me shoot." Again Jones exclaimed, "Who are you? Speak quick, for I can't keep my men from firing." "I'll let you know who we are you d — d rebel," said the Yankee officer, for suc he was, and, suiting the action to the word he sprang upon and seized Captain Jones by the collar. For a second or two a scuffle ensued between the officers when the latter broke loose. At the same instant on
to see their example imitated throughout the South. The Boston Gazette says Perc y always was a favorite with the ladies, and could find out their secrets. He says now that it will be soon necessary to fit up one of the rooms at the White House as a nursery. Col. Jim Jackson was advised by a "rebel" lady with whom he was conversing at Owensboro, Ky., the other day, to learn his soldiers to swim, as they would probably soon have occasion to cross the Ohio in a big hurry. Judge W. G. Jones, of the Confederate Court at Mobile, has sustained the Sequestration Act by refusing to grant a motion to quash a writ of garnishment under that Act. Thomas A. Laster, of Alabama, died in New Orleans a few days since, from a wound received in an affray with a man named Michael McCue. Our Alabama, South Carolina, and Georgia papers report an unusual number of troops proceeding to the coasts of their respective States. The report published in the Southern papers a few days
l near the residence of C. W. Wormley, Esq. Their names are Capt. Bense, of the 6th Ohio Regiment, and Lieut. Merrill, U. S. Engineers. After getting out of the prison, they traveled all night, and laid by on Sunday, but renewing their journey that night, they were taken about 9 o'clock. They refused to divulge the manner of their escape, and maintained an air of mystery which produced the impression that some wrong management existed somewhere. They told a citizen of King William that escape was easy at all times; and it is a remarkable fact that each had passes, purporting to have been signed by Col. Jones, of the Passport Office — forgeries, of course — and a map of the country, drawn in Richmond, with the different roads marked, and the small villages designated, such as Old Church, Bowling Green, Aylett's, &c., which cannot be found on the ordinary maps. It is supposed that they were on their way to Matthias Point, out were suddenly checked, and are now in their old quarter
Foreigners and Consuls. --Judge W. G. Jones, of the Confederate Court for Alabama, has lately given at Mobile a judgment and opinion on the liability of alien residents to the conscription. As to foreigners and Consuls, he says: The petitioner, McKinn, produces a certificate, dated at Mobile, 26th May, 1863, signed by her Britannic Majesty's acting Consul at Mobile, and under the Consular seal, to the effect, that the acting Consul "has good reason to believe, after careful examina enroll the person having it without first making inquiries, and obtaining such information as satisfies him that the party is really a permanent resident of this country and liable to conscription. The Mobile Tribune says the decision of Judge Jones in the Confederate States Court, respecting the liability of aliens, is regarded as one of the most important decisions that have yet been given, and will have a wonderful effect in bringing about a change in matters generally. For there is a
