New York of the steamer Jura, we have the following additional items of foreign news: Great Britain. The excitement in relation to the Trent affair continued unabated. The London Times city article says that the stock market on the 4th inst. was more heavy and unsettled than at any period since the commencement of the difficulty. At the close, however, there was a slight rally in the fund. The strength of the American navy was being canvassed in England. The London Times Temps announces that Napoleon has tendered his services to the British government. The Paris Temps is also informed that, in case the American Government refuses to give satisfaction, the English Cabinet has resolved to recall Lord Lyons from Washington, recognize the Southern Confederacy, and raise the blockade of the Southern ports. England would not then declare war, but leave it to the United States to do as they please. The Paris Bourse, on the 4th inst., was firm at 69f. 55
n of that place by the Jayhawker. From a citizen of one of the principal river towns, the Democrat obtained information from General Price's command as late as the 6th. He was then, it is stated, at Osceola, with a force of from ten to fifteen thousand men, intending in a few days to strike northward, and sending word to his relatives and friends that he should soon be on the Missouri river. General Slack's division had already crossed the Osage, and another division was crossing on the 6th. Price had fifty-three cannon — some of them rifled — and had lately received twenty-five hundred new tents. All his troops were well clad, shod, and armed; and all reports in reference to their destitute and suffering condition are not founded in fact. The large numbers reported as deserting him, have simply gone home for the purpose of inducing enlistments, at which work they are now very energetically engaged in some of the river towns with good success and in others with very limited r
ther name for that portion of the Osage river. The Second engagement. Washington, Dec. 20. --The following dispatch was received by Gen. McClellan this afternoon. It is glorious news, and created quite a stir in the Cabinet: Headquarters, St. Louis, Dec. 20, 1861. To Major General G. B. McClellan, Major General commanding the Army: A part of Gen. Pope's forces, under Col. J. C. Davis and Major Marshall, surprised another camp of the enemy, on the afternoon of the 18th, at Milford, a little north of Warrensburg. A brisk skirmish ensued, when the enemy, finding himself surrounded, surrendered at discretion. We took thirteen hundred prisoners, including three colonels and seventeen captains and one thousand stand of arms, one thousand horses, sixty-five wagons, and a large quantity of tents, baggage and supplies. Our loss is two killed and wounded. The enemy's loss is not yet known. Information received last night from Glasgow states that our troops a
Government to accede to any demands England may make. We copy the following from the Washington telegraphic correspondence of the New York Herald, dated the 20th inst.: Lord Lyons has had two confidential conferences to-day with Mr. Seward, but up to 11 o'clock to-night no written formal communication has been had, and nibility at such a time as this, hence his request of the Senate. The speech of Senator Willey, of Va. &c. The Herald's Washington correspondent, of the 20th inst., says: Senator Willey, of Virginia, concluded to-day his able and patriotic speech in the Senate on the existing rebellion and in support of the policy off type, &c., destroyed. Loss about $500. The editor's opposition to Government is probably the cause of the outrage. Miscellaneous. In New York on the 20th inst., Virginia 6's were quoted at 46¾ a 47 Tennessee 6's, 41¼ a 41½; North Carolina 6's, 58 a 60; Missouri 6's, 38¼ a 38½. The Colonel Terry, who was killed whi
fficers of the Government, but is really a sentiment emanating from a source entitled to consideration. Important from Washington — Mason and Slidell to be delivered up if Demanded. Under the above caption the New York Herald, of the 21st instant, has the following double-headed editorial comments: According to our latest advices from Washington, all apprehensions of a rupture with England upon the late affair of the Trent may be dismissed. Our Cabinet, we are informed, looking ty were clearly intended to cover the above movement. At half-past 1 o'clock it is reported the rebels have destroyed Dam No. 5. No loss on our side. Arrest of George W. Jones, late Minister to Bogota. The New York Herald, of the 21st instant, says: George W. Jones, ex-United States Senator of lowa, and late Minister to Bogota, was taken into custody yesterday morning, at the instance of Secretary Seward, and sent to Fort Lafayette, on suspicion of treason. The prisoner
Death of a gallant soldier. --It is with sorrow that we record the death of Mr. Wm. J. Poindexter, son of Rev. A. M. Poindexter, D. D., of this city, by the accidental discharge of his pistol while on picket duty. Mr. Poindexter was a young man of unusual brilliancy, and possessed of as noble and generous a soul as any man of our acquaintance. He was one of the first to enlist, and so gallantly had he borne himself from the day that he entered the service to the day of his death that he enjoyed the esteem and affection of all who knew him. He now fills a soldier's grave, but his memory will be fondly cherished by many who now mingle their tears with those of the bereaved family of which he was an honored member. Mr. Poindexter died the 26th ult. He was a little over 18 years of age.

ay, without remorse, and with humble and trusting faith, look upward for approval to the "Peaceful Prince of Earth and Heaven," whose birth we this day celebrate, and whose coming we greet with garlands of joy and anthems of thanksgiving. Christmas has always been an honored festival among the descendants of the Cavaliers. In the North, Thanksgiving Day, a Paritan festival, on which the Sons of the Pilgrims show their gratitude by stuffing themselves to death with pumpkin pies, and New Year's Day, which has been imported from Holland, have thrown good old Christmas into the shade. With the exception of Catholics and Episcopalians, whose ritual provides for the celebration of both Thanksgiving and Christmas, giving the latter the prominence which is its due, the North stands alone among Christian nations, whether Roman Catholic or Protestant, in its neglect of the greatest festival of the Christian year. In our own sunny land, the old-fashioned English Christmas still retains it

The tariffs which protect the latter, weighs heavily on the former. Right or wrong, they believe themselves imposed upon, and the Federal compact has become, in their view, nothing better than a beonine partnership. As long ago as 1832, South Carolina, the same State that gave the signal for separation in the present war, wished to break the contract, on account of the heavy duties imposed upon foreign merchandise.--In a popular convention, elected with that view, she resolved, on the 19th March, that she would withdraw from the Union, if by a specified day, certain modifications of the tariff, which she had recommended in concert with other Southern States, were not effected. Her Governor called out the militia, and stood prepared to repel force by force, when a compromise, concerted between Messrs. Clay and Calhoun, was adopted by the Federal Congress and the Legislature of South Carolina. "One historical fact, from its peculiar hearing at this moment, ought not to be lost
ust be gratified at the efforts made in every quarter, especially by the ladies, to supply the wants and promote the comforts of our brave soldiers in the field. Those who are cut off from their friends demand particular attention. The efforts to supply the wants of the soldiers from Alexandria and Maryland must be gratifying to all, but there are others I wish to call the attention of the public to through your valuable paper. The brave boys from the Northwest who left their homes late in May or early in June have ever since been cut off from their friends, and all aid from that quarter rendered impossible; not even the comforts of a letter from a wife, mother, or sister have they been blessed with; and most of them were so unfortunate as to loose their clothing twice--first, in the retreat from Philippi; and, second, in the retreat from Laurel Hill and Rich mountain. It is known that many of them have been very destitute of clothing in consequence of these losses, some of whom w
vidence of gentlemen prominently connected with the public service, the corrupt system of broker-age by which the Treasury has been plundered, and the prostitution of public confidence to purposes of individual aggrandizement. In the month of June last, Arthur M. Eastman, of Manchester, N. H., purchased of the Ordnance Bureau five thousand four hundred Hall's carbines, at three dollars fifty cents each, and after a slight alteration of the arms, at a cost of from seventy-five cents to one dngs, as the agent Department, for fifteen dollars as to these would stand thus: The demned and sold by the Government and merely nominal price; after last, an agent of the War Department chases them for the Government at dollars each, and in June they Eastman by the War Department dollars and fifty cents each, they are purchased by General the Government at twenty-two Whether buying or selling, the of the Government is equally General Ripley is a gentleman of experience, and i
