the place or kept it; and I have no doubt that what I have already done would make the place sell for two thousand dollars more. You would be surprised, I think, at what I have achieved in three months with my limited means. If a good opportunity to sell occurs, I will not let it pass .... The successful cultivation of the cane here is no longer a problem. Everywhere it has been tried in this neighborhood it has succeeded excellently well. The yield has been great; and the quality Mr. Kenner, I understand, says equal, if not superior, to Louisiana sugar made by the most improved means. Mr. Caldwell, fifteen miles from here, on the same kind of soil as mine (peach-land The wild-peach, a kind of laurel, grows on the low ridges and drier spots of the alluvion.), made 104 hogsheads (or thousands of pounds) of sugar, besides molasses, with sixteen hands, which is selling from eight to ten cents per pound. Sweeney has been quite as successful, and others that I have heard from.
ptured officers over to the States. Nor was there any necessity for the resolutions, since the (rebel) President said in his message that he would do it, unless prevented by Congress. He favored the passage of a law prohibiting such a course, and to repose the power of retaliation entirely in the hands of the government. When an officer was captured, if there should be any cause for retaliation, we might retaliate upon him; if not, we were bound to exchange him. He could not, by any law of nations, when captured by one government, be turned over to another government for trial. He would prefer that any officer captured in any State after the promulgation of the emancipation proclamation should be instantly hanged, and not subject him to the uncertainties of a trial by jury.--Mr. Kenner, of Louisiana, moved that the House go into secret session to receive the report on this subject of the Committee of Ways and Means. The motion was agreed to, and the House went into secret session.

e, Military and Naval Affairs, Judiciary, Patents and Copy-rights, The first application to the Confederate Government for a patent was made on the 16th of February, when J. M.

ss, I determined to fall back to the bend in the railroad, about eight miles this side of Ponchatoula, and did so last night, where I now am. I am erecting a small battery at this point. I forgot to mention, that on our arrival at Wadesboro Landing, we found the schooner L. H. Davis in flames. We also found two schooners loaded with cotton. We have captured some twelve prisoners, which have been sent on to New-Orleans. Owing to the very bad weather, the march over the trestle-work from Kenner was not only difficult, but dangerous, and many of our men were compelled to fall out, by means of hurts received by falling through the trestle-work. The skirmish on the twenty-fourth, was conducted by Capts. Griffin, company A ; Montgomery, company H; and Lieutenant Dickey, company E, Sixth Michigan volunteers, who bore themselves admirably; and on the afternoon of the twenty-sixth, by company D, Sixth Michigan volunteers, under Lieut. McIlvaine, and company K, under Capt. Chapman, and co

eat on this side, therefore, was impossible for the Confederates. Elsewhere this same freshet, by raising the surface of the Mississippi to a level with its levees, enabled the Federal vessels to place their broadsides in front of the isthmus of Kenner, and entirely to command its passage. If Lovell had remained in New Orleans, he would have been obliged to capitulate with all his troops at the end of a few days. His sagacity and prudence saved him from this inevitable disaster, and his speedrbearance to defy him and keep the flag of the State of Louisiana floating on the public buildings. He thus succeeded in engrossing Farragut's attention so completely that this officer, ordinarily so vigilant, neglected to cut, at the isthmus of Kenner, the communications between New Orleans and the army; and Lovell, established at Camp Moore, continued to hold intercourse with the city, and even proposed to return if the inhabitants were willing to expose themselves to a bombardment, in order
ight, of Georgia, moved that the preamble and resolutions, and the letter of the accomplished gentleman who had communicated them, be spread upon the Journals of Congress. Adopted. Mr. Shorter, of Alabama, introduced the following: Resolved. That 100 copies of the acts and resolutions of the Congress, passed up to, and inclusive of the 15th of March, and from which the injunction of secrecy has been removed, be printed for the use of the Congress during the present session. Mr. Kenner, of Louisiana, moved to amend the resolution by including the printing of the Provisional and Permanent Constitutions in the same pamphlet. Mr. Shorter said he accepted the amendment proposed. The resolution, as amended, was then passed Mr. Clayton, of Mississippi, offered the following: Resolved, That so much of the report of the Attorney General as relates to the administration of Justice be referred to the Judiciary Committee, and that so much as relates to the mat
