Released. --We understand that the barque Octavia, of Richmond, and the schrs. Haxall and Crenshaw, also of this port, who were not long since seized by Lincoln's piratical Myrmidons in Hampton Roads, and taken to New York as prizes, were released a day or two since by the Admiralty Court, before whom they were taken to have the swindle legalized. We hope that they have all three gone on their way rejoicing, and have not, like the British brig Hiawatha, remained to sue for damages a Government which will be bankrupt by the time judgment can be obtained against it.

Substantial work. --The foundation for the new mill of Haxall, Crenshaw & Co. is about as substantial a piece of masonry as we have ever seen. These thick walls of granite will stand the test of time, and resist any encroachment of the river which runs along their base. An arched tunnel, also of granite, has been constructed, leading from the canal directly under the walls, so that boats can be floated in and loaded or unloaded beneath the new building. The numerous improvements that have been projected and carried into effect within a year or two by this enterprising firm, have completely changed the aspect of things on the bank of the river between Haxall's Mills and the Danville depot. True, the work has involved an immense outlay of money; but this, while it will eventually come back with remunerative interest to the capitalists themselves, has benefited many others who have found employment through their liberal schemes of improvement.

Alabama Legislature--Governor's message Montgomery, Ala.,., Oct. 20. --The Legislature of Alabama met in this city on yesterday. Mr. Patton, of Lauderdale, was elected President of the Senate, and Mr. Crenshaw, of Butler, Speaker of the House. The Governor in his message to-day says, that if the General Assembly can devise a plan to pay the war tax without collecting it from the people at present, he recommends that it be adopted; but if no satisfactory and constitutional plan can be devised he thinks it best to make no change. He says that the State of Alabama has now 27,000 troops in the service of the Confederacy, and other regiments are being organized. He congratulates the State that all its citizens are patriotically united in sustaining the movements in operation to establish the independence of the Southern Confederacy.
