Arrival of a British vessel. The British gun-boat Racer arrived at Charleston S. C., Saturday evening, with dispatches for the British Consuls of the Confederate ports. It is not probable that the brings any news, or any information except that which is official and exclusively for the agents of Her Majesty's Government.
ht. There were loud and quick reports of musketry as well as of cannon. The beating of the drum was also distinctly heard. Some half a dozen steamers are actively employed in running between Fort Monroe and Newport News, and it is not improbable that a fight took place not far from the latter place yesterday. It is stated that Lieut. Adam Baker, who was in the Confederate service, left his command a short time since, and escaped to Fort Pickens. Baker, who is a native of South Carolina, is quite well known in our city, where he lived when hostilities commenced, having had charge of a corps of marines at the Navy-Yard. He resigned in April and subsequently went South. His conduct, if the statement is true, is mysterious, and if the case is one of real desertion, his conduct is in a high degree traitorous and perfidious. The message of Lincoln is regarded here, by intelligent men, as a labored attempt to deceive everybody; as a deliberate misstatement of the condi
on, salt, fruit, provisions, oils, tin, copper, saddles, bridles, and cavalry equipments, and is valued at $100,000. She was captured a few days since by the United States steamer Penguin, while attempting to run the blockade off the coast of South Carolina. At 6 o'clock on the morning of the 25th of November, the officer of the watch on board the Penguin observed a sail bearing southeast, and distant about seven miles, heading in for Edisto island, S. C.; the wind at the time was west soutS. C.; the wind at the time was west southwest, and blowing very fresh. The schooner had her lower sails set. The steamer's anchor was weighed immediately, and all steam put on to overhaul her.--As soon as this was perceived, the schooner bore away before the wind, when a gun was fired to bring her to; the shot fell short, and no notice was taken of it. The main gaff top-sails were set, and every endeavor made by those on board the schooner to get clear off. At eight o'clock another gun was fired, the shot falling alongside, upo
pply of ice. Ice-houses are being erected in every direction, and no precaution will be neglected to assert our independence of our Yankee brethren (!) in reference to this commodity. The detachments in this county are all snugly in their winter quarters, and prepared to pass the season in comparative comfort. There exist but little sickness in the hospitals, and all seem to be buoyant and cheerful. Gen. Pemberton, recently in command here, has been ordered South--I believe to South Carolina. I have heard both Cols. Pryor, of the 3d Va., and Daniel, of the 4th N. C. regiment both are now stationed in this county-- suggested as his successor.--Either would doubtless make an efficient chief of a brigade. Another draft for local purposes will probably soon be made, as the term of those now in service will soon expire. One for the same object was made last week in Nansemond.--Much disaffection is manifested, especially by the volunteers, with the ordinance recently adopte
from Berwick, she was pursued and captured by one of the launches belonging to the blockading ship South Carolina. On Saturday morning the sloop Florida put out from the bay in pursuit of the Federals, and, in a short time, came in sight of them, when they strained every nerve to outstrip their pursuers, but, finding the Florida gaining on them, and probably not fancying the appearance of the huge bull-dogs on the Confederate craft, abandoned their prize, and made Bull Run speed for the South Carolina. The Florida took the Purdy in tow and landed her safely in Berwick's Bay. Bully for the Florida and her bull dogs! More Yankee Outrages. From the Louisville (Bowling Green) Courier, of the 3d inst., we take the following: We are informed by a refugee just from Shelby county, who succeeded in running the blockade, that the Yankees have been perpetrating all manner of outrages in that section. Men with Southern sympathies, were daily arrested and taken over to Whittaker
