. . . With reference to your want of knowledge of my plans, it has probably escaped your mind that I read to you yesterday that part of my letter to General Lee which related to my future course of action, and it seemed to meet the approval of Judge Moise and yourself. It was simply to organize a central force of 5,000 men, which, in connection with corps of Partisan Rangers, might succeed in confining the enemy to New Orleans, and thus subject him to the diseases incident to that city in summ my note of this morning.

This letter shows that this question was submitted to Lee on or before the 12th of May, and that it was agreed to by Governor Moore and Judge Moise; and there is nothing in the War correspondence which shows that it was ever objected to by Lee.

—making the land to the westward of the passes of the Mississippi, and endeavoring to run into Barrataria Bay, Berwick's Bay, or some of the other small inlets. Upon your arrival, you will proceed to the city of New Orleans, in person, and report yourself to Commodore Rousseau, for orders. You will take especial care of the accompanying package of papers, as they are the papers of the captured schooner, and you will deliver them, with the seals unbroken, to the judge of the Prize Court, Judge Moise. You will batten down your hatches, and see that no part of the cargo is touched, during the voyage, and you will deliver both vessel, and cargo, to the proper law officers, in the condition in which you find them, as nearly as possible. I availed myself of this opportunity, to address the following letter to Mr. Mallory, the Secretary of the Navy; having nothing very important to communicate, I did not resort to the use of the cipher, that had been established between us.

His bitterest enemies watched him, and none of them charged him with love of money, sensuality, or cruel use of power. The only instance in which his sternest critic has charged him with severity is this. During a tumult, a few white proprietors who had returned, trusting his proclamation, were killed. His nephew, General Moise, was accused of indecision in quelling the riot. He assembled a court-martial, and, on its verdict, ordered his own nephew to be shot, sternly Roman in thus keeping his promise of protection to the whites. Above the lust of gold, pure in private life, generous in the use of his power, it was against such a man that Napoleon sent his army, giving to General Leclerc, the husband of his beautiful sister Pauline, thirty thousand of his best troops, with orders to reintroduce slavery.

They have been nearly cleared of Southern men.--A considerable number of citizens of Virginia and unseceded Southern States, left Washington the present week. We yesterday met Messrs. A. Moise, Jr. of Tennessee, and Henry Wood, of Albemarle — very worthy gentlemen, who held offices under the Washington Government, and who have "come home." Mr.Moise, who is a native of Charleston, and a member of a very highly respectable family of thatMoise, who is a native of Charleston, and a member of a very highly respectable family of that name, tendered his services to Virginia to raise a company of Mounted Riflemen in Tennessee, and will leave to-day for the purpose of organizing this force. The accomplished commander of our land forces expressed the highest confidence in the loyalty of Tennessee to the Southern cause, and in the chivalry of her people. These gentlemen represent that a great panic prevails in Washington among the barbarians — rulers and subjects. Lincolnis, they say, in effect, a prisoner in the Federal
