lockade from Fort Pickens.--The advices from Havana show that several vessels, from Confederate ports, have lately arrived there. A correspondent of the New York Post writes from Havana, December 6th, as follows: There must be some mistake in the statements of the New York and other Northern papers about the efficiency of the blockade. Three days ago the Confederate steamship Vanderbilt, Captain Smith, came into port with a valuable cargo of cotton, which will find a good market at Barcelona, whither it will at once be shipped. Three other steamers are understood to be en route--one from New Orleans and the other from Charleston. The Confederate steamer W. Mallory, Capt. Campbell, came in yesterday from Mobile, with a cargo of naval stores. The Captain would have brought cotton, but the Confederate authorities at Mobile would not permit it to be shipped. She brought two passengers. Vessels are clearing every day for ports in the C. S. A., and we do not learn that many

The Marshall (Texas) Republican, of the 14th inst, says: A letter from Gregg's regiment, dated the 24th, stated that the sickness among the soldiers was unabated. Seventy six men had died up to that date, and many more were dangerously. Lincoln Despotism in Europe — a citizen of New Orleans refusal a Passovers. A citizen of New Orleans writing from Barcelona to the New Orleans Bulletin, concludes an interesting letter as follows: I must certainly not omit the most important event in my whole life and in all my travels. When I left Liverpool I had a United States passport, which the United States in that city refused to vise, saying that I must apply to the United States Ambassador in London. On my arrival in the metropolis of the three kingdoms, I went directly to fix my passport matters, and directed my way to the United States Minis
h infantry and 3,000 cavalry. Sixteen thousand other Spanish troops were to occupy-Portugal, and 40,000 more French troops were to be assembled at Bayonne, to march also to Portugal, in case those already there were attacked by the English. By these means Napoleon introduced a large army into the very heart of Spain. He then pretended that it was necessary, for the security of his troops, that he should possess certain fortresses, and accordingly, Pampeluna, St. Sebastian, Fegueras, and Barcelona, were given up to him, thus placing the passes of the Pyrenees in his power, and rendering it easy for him to pour in any number of troops he might wish from France. And under the pretence of fulfilling the treaty of partition, he did pour in enormous masses. Between the 19th of October, 1807, and the18th of January, 1808--three months--70,000 French infantry and 10,000 cavalry entered through the pass of Irunalone. It was at this time that the tumult at Aranjuez, already alluded to, to

Two other steamers had also arrived at Plymouth, believed to be intended for the same destination.--Their names are the Merrimac and the Sylph. The D. Fleming with a cargo of turpentine, basin and fifteen bales of cotton, from Charleston, had arrived at Liverpool. She left Charleston on the 5th of May, in company with the Louisa, for Barcelona and six schooners for Nason. She left on vessels in port. The London press on the defeat of Banks. The London Times, of June 10, in commenting on the defeat of Gen. Banks, says: The battle of Winchester was one of the most important successes that the Confederates have obtained. For thought it is not likely to enable them to carry the war into the enemy's territory, and though it may be that the Federals will once more endeavor to advance into the Valley of the Shenandoah, y
ing tempted Denmark, by holding out promises which she never meant to perform, to advance so far that she cannot recede with either safety or honor. This is not the first time that she has been guilty of similar bad faith. In the war of the Succession she tempted the Catalans to take up arms in favor of the Archduke, and not only totally neglected and turned them over to the vengeance of Spain at the peace, but actually ordered the British fleet in the Mediterranean to assist in reducing Barcelona, their last place of refuge, standing alone between them and indiscriminate massacre. In the same way Canning induced the Spaniards to rise against Ferdinand VII. in 1823, and left them to the vengeance of the Holy Alliance. When reproached for this in the House of Commons, he answered in a speech which we are told convulsed the House, so ludicrous were the pictures he drew of the unhappy people whom he had betrayed to ruin.--Above all other nations, England cares most for herself and l
