ly trained, and that that was the reason of their being taken such extra care of. Company M, of the Second Artillery, commanded by Major Hunt, accompanied the others. They had no horses, being obliged to leave them behind them when they left Texas. They will be freshly supplied at whatever point they may land. The balance of the soldiers were taken on board from a steaming later in the day. There were some companies from the Second and Third regiments, in all about seven. Companies H, Captain Brooks, and C, Captain Allen, of the Second regiment light infantry, are also on board. A company of sappers and miners, from West Point, and a few persons belonging to the Ordnance Department, under the charge of Lieut. Balch, complete the whole. The total number of men is about five hundred, although many think that it is much larger. She may, however, receive a fresh supply before she leaves the city from either Fort Hamilton or Governor's Island, as she has accommodations for fully two t

A number of mysterious boats were put on board the Atlantic yesterday afternoon. The Atlantic, as we stated in our third edition yesterday, has been purchased or chartered by the Government, and cleared for Brazos.--The boats alluded to are lighter and smaller than the ship's boats, longer, much narrower, and clinker built, after the manner of the Whitehall boats, with four pairs of oars.

two strongly built stalls soon explained that. The horse was quietly placed in one of the stalls, and almost before he had time to know where he was, the steam hoisting apparatus had placed him with his companions on board the ship. The time employed in putting all the animals in their quarters was incredibly short, only a few moments being given to each. The guns and their heavy carriages were stowed away carefully, and the baggage next received the proper attention. The steamtug R. L. Maby at five o'clock came along-side; her deck was densely crowded with soldiers from Fort Hamilton, and there was some little delay in getting them on board the larger vessel. They presented a strange sight, with their knapsacks, water bottles, cans, and other accoutrements. They are nearly all young men — fine, healthy young fellows, and full of animal spirit; many of them expressed a wish for action of some kind, and would evidently not turn their back on danger.

The peace mission of the Virginia Union leaders, who had an interview with the President and members of the Cabinet last evening, for the purpose of urging the continuation of the present military status at Fort Pickens and the foregoing of the collection of the revenue, has proved a failure. Mr. Segar, one of the parties, declared openly this morning that nothing could be done with the Administration. Lieut. Talbot's mission. Lieut. Talbot arrived here from Fort Sumter this morning, and reported immediately to the War Department, with dispatches from Major Anderson. The purport of them, of course, is a profound secret with the Administration. Lieut. Talbott was with the Cabinet for several hours, being introduced by the Secretary of War. Immediate action was taken on the subject of Major Anderson's dispatch. This afternoon the Secretary of War placed in the hands of Lieut. Talbot sealed instructions to Major Anderson, and he left on his return trip to Fort Sumter.

t, the people may take the matter in their own hands. Montgomery, April 6. --The people here are pleased at the prospect of a brush, but are afraid President Lincoln will evade a conflict. The firing into the schooner at Charleston brightens all faces. New Orleans, April 6. --The news from Washington and New Yohe Southern Confederacy, said he anticipated only peace, and declared that he spoke advisedly in saying that the Confederate States desired nothing else. But, if Lincoln did not desire peace, they were prepared to accept whatever was in store for them. That they would open civil war rather than submit to coercive execution of anydependence at all hazards.--He claims that the Confederate States Government is growing daily in strength, and can afford to wait peaceably for the development of Lincoln's policy. To-day he again declared his conviction that there was nothing in the rumors of warlike movements by the Administration. The sloop-of-war Pawnee, w

The firing into the schooner at Charleston brightens all faces. New Orleans, April 6. --The news from Washington and New York produced an unwonted excitement. The report that war vessels are to visit the mouth of the Mississippi aroused the whole city. Dispatches from Washington. The conversation and speculation with regard to the destination of the ships and troops leaving New York under sealed orders varies according to the views of the spokesmen.--There is no doubt of the fact that the President assured Mr. Baldwin, and other distinguished Union men of Virginia, on Friday evening, that he had no intention of blockading the Southern ports or collecting the revenue, and that he contemplated no act of coercion against any of the seceded States, for the reason

It was said that the horses belonging to the artillery were very valuable animals and highly trained, and that that was the reason of their being taken such extra care of. Company M, of the Second Artillery, commanded by Major Hunt, accompanied the others. They had no horses, being obliged to leave them behind them when they left Texas.
