s of Wilmington and Charleston site October 26, 1864, 8,632,000 pounds meat, 1,507,000 pounds of lead, 1 3,000 pounds of saltpetre, 546,000 pairs of shoes, 346,000 pairs of blankets, ,000 pounds of coffee, 69,000 rifles, 97 packages of revolvers, 2,639 packages of medicine, 43 cannon, with a large quantity of other articles, of which we ed make no mention. Besides these, any valuable stores and supplies are brought, by way of the Northern lines, to Florida, by the port of Galveston through Mexico, across the Rio Grand. The shipments of cotton made Government account since March 1864, amount to $5,296,006 in specie. Of this, cotton, to the value of $1,500,000, has been shipped since the 1st of July and up to the 1st of December. It is a matter of absolute impossibility for the Federal to stop our blockade-running at the port of Wilmington. If the wind blows off the coast, the blockading fleet is driven off. If the wind blows landward, they are compelled to haul off to a
this department suspected, from a variety of hints, insin and innuendoes, that the rebel General E. Kirby Smith has been negotiating with the Emperor Maximilian for transferring nearly the whole of the rebel army west of the Mississippi river to Mexico, to fight for the French. The same story is now current among the prominent secession of this city and is founded on private communications received larly from the Trans-Mississippi Department of rebeldom. While the country was in expectan submission which, however delayed, necessarily follows military defeat and overthrow." The Herald, alluding to a suggestion which has been made to acknowledge the independence of the Confederacy if it will assist to drive the French out of Mexico, thus disposes of it: If the rebels seriously imagine that we will let them go in the hope of seizing Canada and Mexico, they are very decidedly mistaken, and we must disenchant them. We would not let them go if they could give us a bond fo
America arrived at New York on Sunday with Liverpool dates of the 18th ultimo. The Cession of Five Mexican States to France. The most important item tellisence is that relative to the French in Sonora; important in view of the recent news from San Francisco of Dr. Gwin's movements in Northwestern Mexico. It was rumored in Paris that Marshal Bazaine had received orders to occupy Sonora in the name of France, and to hold it as a material pledge for the payment of the indemnity owing by Mexico. One of the French journals asks the question, whether getting and keeping possession of this security will not cost more than the amount of the mortgage money. Europe and the Confederacy — the question of recognition with the Abolition of slavery. The London Times discusses a belief, which it has seen recently expressed in Southern journals, that slavery is the only existing obstacle to the recognition of the Confederacy by European Powers. It says: That sacrifice is contemp
ssue of Thursday: "The day is not, then, far distant when the whole of Europe ought to unite and turn all its preoccupations toward America. Solemn hour — gigantic struggle — which will bring the two continents face to face." It is obvious from the tone of the Paris press that the French Government has no intention of relinquishing, without a struggle, its acquisitions in America.--It may be supported in this determination by Austria, a scion of whose royal family wields the sceptre of Mexico; and by Spain, whose magnificent Cuba colony will be absorbed by the United States as soon as that Government is permitted to give the law to this continent. England, in view of the perils of Canada, may become member of the same alliance. Nothing less than such a combination could prevent "the Monroe Doctrine" from dominating America if the Confederate Republic should withdraw the only breakwater which now keeps back the tide of Northern aggression. We have never been of those who de

s confirmed, as it mentioned the fact of his remains having been brought to Staunton, and been committed to the tomb there on Sabbath, the 5th instant. There is little doubt but he was murdered in cold blood by the inhuman brutes who were in charge of him at the moment Major Hawks escaped. Indeed, the Yankees at Charlottesville were heard to express regret at his death when they learned that he was the Grand Master of the Masonic Lodge of Virginia. --Miserable hypocrisy! If they felt any compunction, how easy would it have been for them to have investigated the facts, found the perpetrators and hung them, as they so richly deserved. Colonel Harman was well known through the State, first as one of the officers of the Virginia regiment in Mexico, then as colonel of the Fifth Virginia infantry at the commencement of this war, and to the Masonic fraternity as the highest officer of the Lodge of Virginia. He leaves a wife and four (or more) young children to mourn his untimely fate.
It seems evident that Maximilian is steadily consolidating his powers in Mexico. He is believed to be a man of sagacity; of sound judgment; of an amiable disposition; a wise, liberal and firm man. His administration thus far confirms this belief, and we shall not be surprised to see Mexico become a happy, prosperous and pMexico become a happy, prosperous and powerful country under his reign. If the sagacious ruler of France lives long enough, Maximilian will receive from that powerful empire a support which will render it questionable in the extreme whether the United States will find it any child's play to undertake the overthrow of the new Power. Certainly, if the present war is prut a navy, and without friends among the nations. But even this they have not accomplished after a war of four years, in which they have passed the culminating point of their capacity for conquest without effecting that result. We rather think that the "manifest destiny" of Mexico points in a different direction from formerly.
General Scott--from Mexico. New Orleans, December 14. --General Scott has arrived here. A salute was fired. A citizen who returned from Matamoras, who was intimate there with the French officers, says that the latter apprehend a war between France and the United States. [There is no such apprehension in Washington.]
It seems to be a matter of considerable doubt who is President of the great Republic ("one and indivisible") of Mexico--Juarez or Ortega. Juarez admits that his term has expired. He holds on merely because, in the present condition of the codevolve upon the President of the Supreme Court of Justice." This clause would be decisive in any other country than Mexico, where they have a way of doing things peculiar to themselves, especially since Juarez himself became President by virtueamation of offices, it seems to us, who, however, do not pretend to pass judgment upon such a peculiar people as those of Mexico. Juarez seems disposed to settle this claim after the Mexican fashion; that is, by putting Ortega in prison if he caed, the important question is, to whom shall General Logan present his credentials? Governments change so incessantly in Mexico that an accredited Minister must always be in haste to reach the capital, lest he find himself there with his credentials
e South! Senator Cowan looked upon this "scrap-book" as the production of "anonymous scribblers and cotton thieves." The Senate Judiciary Committee to-day perfected a system of legislation looking to the organization of the United States District Court at Richmond, and the prospective trial of Jeff. Davis. The House Military Committee has agreed to report a bill to equalize soldiers' bounties, so as to give those who entered the army early in the war as much as those who entered it at later periods. General Grant is consulting with this committee in relation to a re-organization of the army. Several attempts have been made to contradict my statement that General Logan had declined the mission to Mexico. In due time, however, it will officially appear that he declined some days ago. Mr. Page, editor of the Lebanon (Ohio) Star, took charge of the remains of the late ex-Governor Corwin, to be conveyed by the Baltimore and Ohio road to Ohio, and left this evening.

Pardoned. William L. Black, one of the Panama steamship pirates, sentenced to be hung, and whose sentence was commuted by General McDowell to imprisonment to ten years, has been pardoned by the President. Expedition against the Apaches. General Carleton, commanding the district of Mexico, has been ordered to organize an expedition in that Territory and Arizona against the hostile Apaches, who have been committing outrages in that section and interfering with mining operations.--Star.
