and have as often urged the doctrine of retaliation. We now call the attention of our authorities to a brief statement of facts, in relation to an officer of the Confederate Navy. Acting Lieutenant A. G. Hudgins, of the Confederate steamer "Sumter," has been confined in the "Tombs," New York, in a cell 9 feet long. Lieut. Hudgins was the first midshipman from Virginia who resigned from the U. S. Naval Academy on the 4th of March--He immediately went South and offered his services to Secretary Mallory, who promptly commissioned him in the Confederate service. Ordered to report in New Orleans, he ran the blockade of the Brooklyn on the 20th June.Being sent in charge of one of the prizes captured by the "Sumter," he himself, with prize crew, was taken by one of the U. S. steamers, and has been incarcerated in a felon's cell since the 22d of July. He is a regular commissioned officer of the C. S. Navy, and our Government should demand his release or exchange, in default of which doubl
the fact, then it would seem to follow as a matter of course, that if a proper man be found, the selection will be made from some State or great district of country not now represented in the Cabinet. In that event, the public will naturally expect that Tennessee, Arkansas, or at least the region of which Memphis is the centre and emporium, would be the one to furnish the new Cabinet officer. The Atlantic seaboard is now represented by Messrs. Hunter and Memminger; the Gulf States by Messrs. Mallory, Benjamin and Reagan; the great central country whose centre of intelligence, trade and interest is Memphis, is not represented in the Cabinet; and, upon abstract reasoning, would seem entitled to the appointment, provided it can furnish the qualifications and talents demanded. Judging by our own feelings, we suppose the public to be profoundly indifferent as to the mere person to be selected. The first sentiment of the people is, that the highest talents at command should be enli
Affairs at Key West. Augusta, Ga., Oct. 22. --The Charleston Courier, of this morning, says two gentlemen and a lady, who escaped from Key West, have arrived in that city, and report that there are about 10,000 Federals at Key West and Fort Jefferson. Among those compelled to take the oath of allegiance is Mr. F. J. Morena, the brother-in-law of Secretary Mallory. In the Point were two English and one French frigate. The yacht Wanderer is now used as a patrol and guard boat. It was reported that the English and French naval officers were to have a meeting to decide upon and report that the blockade is totally inefficient.

ly ten pounds of hard bread and three gallons of water for their whole company of six men. The bread was soon spoiled from salt water, and in this condition, after being out four days and nights, they were picked up by the sloop Kate Dale, and taken into Tampa. They state that a large number of persons at Key West were compelled to take the oath or leave their families to the mercy of the enemy. Among those who were under this necessity was Mr. F. J. Morena, brother-in-law of Secretary Mallory. Many of those persons went up to take the oath with tears in their eyes. No one was allowed to leave Key West without taking the oath, neither for Europe or for an American port. One gentleman wanted to accompany this party and take his wife with him. Both slaves and free negroes are obliged to take the oath. One free negro, named Pablo Rogers, obstinately refused, said he was a Southern man and belonged to St. Augustine. They discharged him from his employment on Fort Jeffer

are a material that we can well spare. They are too proud to be common soldiers in the U. S. army, and too good-for-nothing to get higher places. The Confederate States have as much as they can look after in Virginia. I think that they will be glad to let Kentucky alone. But our home traitors are desperate, and may do some awful deed, God only knows what. I am told that here and hereabouts they are growing more bold. To me it does not seem so. At the Convention that nominated Mallory, the Union feeling was warm and decided. --Yesterday I was at a large meeting seventeen miles above town, and made a speech out and out for the Government. The Union men were pleased — the Secessionists mad. Look to your Congressional District. Don't let the election or mock vote in Tennessee affect you. Let me say to you again that Kentucky won't, can't secede. I am, sir, as ever, your true friend, James Speed. John H. Ward, Esq., Bowling Green, Ky. P. S.--The Bank P
riday Gen. Stone sent a flag of truce to Gen. Evans, at Leesburg, to know what disposition had been made of the National prisoners taken at Ball's Bluff, and those left dead on the field. The latter replied that the prisoners were quartered in a tobacco ware- house at Richmond, and the dead were properly interred; that he would immediately communicate with the Confederate Government in relation to an exchange of prisoners. Lieut. Col. Wistar is fast recovering from his wounds. Capt. Mallory, of the California Regiment, lies in a very precarious condition at a farm-house near Poolesville. Alexander H. McClary, for a number of years connected with the Philadelphia Press, was taken prisoner. About 100 wounded still remain at Poolesville, all doing well. To day, Captain Sheets and Quartermaster Hall, of one of the Pennsylvania regiments, and some members of a New York company near the Chain Bridge, discovered bodies floating down the Potomac, thrown forward by th

Philadelphia, Nov. 6. --Lieut. Kurtz. of the United States navy, whose arrival at Washington from Richmond, on his parole of honor, has been previously noticed, is now stopping in this city. His parole, which is for fifty days, was obtained chiefly through the intercession of ex-Senator Mallory, after enduring for several weeks, in company with a fellow prisoner, Lieut. Selden, also of the navy, the horrors of a Richmond cell. The chief object of the rebel authorities for granting his parole was to obtain Lieutenant Kurtz's influence with the Washington Cabinet to arrange for an exchange of prisoners, including himself; and it is understood that he has so far enlisted the sympathies of the Government by his description of the ill treatment of the Union prisoners, as to h

then proceeded to business. A resolution, offered by Mr. Fisher, of Northampton, for the expulsion of a member named Waitman T. Willey, on account of his disloyalty to the Confederate States and his adherence to the enemies of the same, was adopted. A communication from certain citizens of Northwestern. Virginia, recommending the appointment of representatives to fill vacancies in the Legislature for the counties identified with the Wheeling treason, was laid on the table. Mr. Mallory, of Brunswick, offered a resolution to adjourn sinc die on Thursday next, and Mr. Scott, of Fauquier, proposed as a substitute "That the present Constitution of this Commonwealth ought to be amended, and it is expedient that this Convention should submit amendments thereto for the ratification or the rejection of the people." Some debate ensued, in which the disposition of members to make long-winded speeches was freely commented on, when the previous question was called, and Mr. Scott's
