British and French war Vessels at Charleston. Charleston, Dec. 9. --The British war steamer Cadmus, 21 guns, and the Petrel, 13 guns, arrived off Charleston yesterday, from Fortress Monroe, on the 3d. The British Consul spent last night aboard the Cadmus. That vessel left this morning for Fortress Monroe. The Petrel leaves, on Thursday. The French corvette Milan still lies anchored the harbor. Yesterday evening, her commander, with Generals Beauregard and Ripley, and a number of ladies and invited guests, visited Fort Sumter. It is rumored that intelligence has been received that the iron-clad, Passaic, left New York and reached Hampton Roads, and after remaining there some days, left for the South but we, obliged to put back to the Roads in a disabled condition.
isit us for the purpose of inquiring into the fitness of regimental and company officers for their respective positions. --The effect of this has been to set every gold-braided and epauletted son of Mars studiously investigating the (to many of them) previously unexplained mysteries of Gillham and Hardee. The man Payne who was recently branded for desertion has died. He was so much mortified that he would not go to any house, but lay in the woods and caught cold in the wound. On the 4th inst. six others were publicly whipped for a like offence. If this should not check desertion recourse will be had to the extreme penalty of the law. For the last forty-eight hours the weather has been extremely severe, and many of our men have suffered very much. It is heartrending to see the poor fellows but half clad and shivering around their camp-fires. Are we thought of by those who sit snug and comfortable at home? If we are to judge by results, we are not. Mammon worship seems t
Later from the North. Petersburg, Dec. 10. --New York dates of the 8th inst. have been received. No movement had been made by Burnside up to Sunday. The New York papers report that Jackson had joined Lee at Fredericksburg, and now forms the left wing of the rebel army. It was rumored, also, that Stuart's cavalry was on the north side of the Rappahannock, moving between the forces of Burnside and Sigel. The cold on Saturday night was intense. The Abolition troops suffered considerably. Six Abolition pickets are reported to have been frozen to death. The ice in the Potomac near Aquia creek is nearly two inches thick. It is stated that a body of rebels occupied Thoroughfare Gap and Warrenton Junction on Saturday. Col. Perny Wyndham was about to make a reconnaissance. Sigel has issued a proclamation, ordering an election for Congress for the district of Norfolk, Princess Anne, Nansemond, Portsmouth, and Isle of Wight. Jos. Segar has secured his constit
the members of which will solemnly vow never to disband as soldiers until the last one of these scoundrels shall have been made to feel the vengeance due their crimes. The men are being marked now, and the soldiers of each county will effectually clean out their own respective districts. It is bad when individuals are forced to redress their own wrongs, but where there is no law no other reconcile is left them but Lynch's code. A great stampede was created in Lewisburg, on the 28th ult., by some mischievous fellows firing several guns near Livisay's Mills, with a view of frightening a cavalry regiment stationed at that point. A dispatch came to town with the startling intelligence that a large force of Abolition infantry and cavalry was advancing and actually engaged in a desperate conflict with our men. Citizens fled, commissary stores and sick soldiers were hastily started off, and the wildest excitement prevailed. Early next morning the facts became known, and the pl
ey, for negroes to enter the third circle; also one on 7th street, for the same purpose. There are four doors on 7th street, and doors on each side to empty the parquette. The saloon in the basement fronts the whole width of the house, 50 by 17 feet. There are saloons in the second and third tiers.--The manager's private office is next to the saloon in the second circle. Every door on the outside (front) will be illuminated with glass lamps, protected by wire netting. There are ten outside doors to the building. It will be ready for occupancy about the middle of January. Owing to the high price of all building materials, and especially such as are used in structures like the Theatre, its cost for erection must fully equal $75,000. To give some idea of the solidity of the walls, we may state that Mr. John D. Quarles, master mason, used up two million five hundred thousand bricks in their erection, and this material forms comparatively but a mirror item in the bill of costs.
is apparent that, whatever disasters our arms may have suffered at particular points, a great advance has been made since the commencement of the war." The Union forces are represented to be now in the field under able commanders stronger than ever, resolute and eager to be led against the enemy, to crush the rebellion by a vigorous winter campaign; the armies of the Potomac and the West vicing with each other in dealing the quickest and heaviest blows against the enemy. Under the calls of July and August there are already in the field over 420,000 new troops, of which 339,000 are volunteers, 332,000 of whom have volunteered for three years of the war. It is stated in the report that a chief hope of those who set the rebellion on foot was for aid and comfort from disloyal sympathizers in the Northern States, whose efforts were relied upon the divide and distract the people of the North, and that the call for volunteers and a draft of the militia afforded an occasion for these d

From New Orleans. --A New Orleans Picayune, of November 22, has been received in Mobile.--Butler has allowed the Bank of New Orleans to resume business. During the week ending November 15, 12,872 families have received aid from the U. S. Relief Commission, of which 4,657 were Irish, 1,200 Americans, 3,932 Germans, 588 English, 64 Scotch, 723 French, 144 Spanish, 1,308 colored, etc.--a statement which indicates a vast amount of pauperism, and destitution in the Crescent City. There are no quotations of cotton in the Picayune's price current.

More Vandalism. --A letter from Natchez, dated November 18th, says: Mrs. Bragg, wife of General Braxton Bragg, and her mother, Mrs. Ellis, have separately been burnt out by the Abolitionists, and are on their way to this place. Their plantations are on the Bayou Terre, near Thibodaux, La.

ied as deputies of the High Constable, by taking the several oaths required by law. Elizabeth Hillyard was fined $10 for permitting her slave Milly to go at large and hire herself out contrary to law. Claiborne Murray, a lad, was examined for stealing $500 in C. S. Treasury notes from John Kloss, on the 3d of December. After hearing the evidence the defendant was discharged by the Court. Thomas Jones and Beverly Cousins, free negroes, were tried, the first for having, on the 19th of November, stolen one calf skin of the alleged value of $30, the property of Lewis Gimmi, and the latter for receiving the same. At the valuation put on the calf skin the parties would have been guilty of grand larceny if convicted, but the Court putting aside the fictitious valuation proceeded to try Jones for petty larceny and Cousins for receiving the proceeds of his theft. Both were found guilty, and ordered each 39 lashes. A summons was issued against John R. Allen to show cause wh

The salt works at St. Andrew's Bay. --A dispatch dated at Mariana, November 26th, says: Mr. Collins, of this county, just returned from West Bay, reports that the enemy shelled the salt works in that vicinity, killing and wounding several — They then came ashore, and with small arms killed men and teams, and capturing several negroes, some prisoners, and 500 wagons--Tallahassee Viridian and Journal, Nov. 20
