Charleston, Nov. 28. --The Courier of this morning says that a skirmish took place near Buckingham on Saturday last, between the Confederates and the Federal invaders. The Federals attempted to land but were driven off. One of our men was slightly wounded by a shell. It is reported that the enemy landed on yesterday at Bennett's Point, at the mouth ofr of lights passed our bar on Monday night, and it is presumed that the Federal fleet were en route South. Perhaps they were a portion or the whole of the "twenty old whalers" referred to in the New York Herald, of the 25th inst. Savannah, Nov. 28.--The papers of this morning state that Fort Pulaski, on yesterday, threw a few shot and shell at the camp of the Federals on Tybee Island, which caused a Bull Run stampede to safer quarters on that island. There are now six Federal vessels <

From Gen. Floyd's command. Lynchburg, Nov. 28. --The Republican will publish to-morrow a letter from a prominent officer in General Floyd's command, dated at Camp Mercer, November 25th, which gives a detailed account of movements since leaving Cotton Hill. A number of skirmishes have occurred, some of which were general in character; but in none of them did our forces sustain but slight loss, while the enemy suffered greatly. We lost only a few tents in our retreat. The command expect to go into winter quarters at Peterstown, in Monroe county. The roads are almost impassable; and it is thought that neither the Yankees nor ourselves can accomplish anything until next spring.

d a most unjustifiable attack upon his honor and his patriotism. To prove to the Convention that the house of Thomas Branch & Sons, of which he was the senior partner, had not engaged in the extortionate practices alluded to, Mr. B. proceeded to state that he purchased a cargo of salt, consisting of 6,000 sacks, previous to the blockade, at $2 per sack, and only advanced on the price as the market advanced, selling some of it as high as $14.50. He admitted that he made money on the salt, as any other gentleman merchant ought to; but not as an extortioner, the very name of which he abominated. Mr. Branch made a very minute statement of the details, closing with a suggestion that the Convention, instead of passing a law to regulate the price of salt, had better pass one to prohibit the killing of hogs before the 10th of January, "by which means" the farmers would give weight to their pork, which the Government wanted, and thereby increase the profit on their sales to the same extent.

Speech of Hon. Wm. L. Yancey in London. his remarks Enthusiastically Applauded. [From the London Globe, Nov. 12.] Mr. Dudley Mann, and Wm. L. Yancey, two of the Southern Commissioners, now in England, attended the dinner of the Fishmongers' Company on Saturday. Mr. Yancey, in answer to a complimentary toast, made the following speech, which derives interest from the fact that the Minister from the United States, Mr. Adams, was at the same time speaking in Guildhall. Mr. Yancey said: Upon the part of Americans, I sincerely respond to the sentiment just expressed by the Prince Warden, for the restoration of peace in America. Such a wish proclaimed by a company of intelligent Englishmen must kindle a corresponding spirit in the bosom of every enlightened and impartial American. The name American no longer represents a united people. There exists now two American nationalities — the Confederate and the Federal Americans. I — as you may, perhaps, be aware — am a Confede<
not possible to be suspected of having contraband articles on board. She may say, moreover that there is an extradition treaty between her and the United States, that the class of criminals to be given up and the forms in which the delivery is to be effected, are therein expressly designated That if Messrs. Slidell and Mason come within this category, they must first be proved to do so, by a trial in the proper form. That therefore, under any circumstances, such extradition could not be made at sea, where there was no officer, no court, and no jury. That moreover the treaty expressly excepted men charged with political offences, and that the alleged offences of the Commissioners were entirely political. That they have tacitly abandoned, for the sake of peace, the pretensions which brought on the war of 1812, and that the assumption of them by the United States, under the present circumstances, is an insult. That the British Government might answer, "We know not whether it will."
wall.--There is one flouring mill in operation but little business is done in it on account of the difficulty of procuring grain. Before the war the occupations of the citizens of Occoquon were various. Some cultivated small farms in the vicinity others get a living by fishing, by furnishing manufactured articles to the nearer markets, and in making barrels. The town was built up principally by Northern artizans and mechanics coming with small capital to set up business for themselves. In 1860 a party sprung up headed by a man by the name of Underwood, calling itself "the Union party," but which was only a band of Abolitionists, principally of Northern birth. Underwood was a justice in Prince William county, but by his freely expressed sentiments made himself obnoxious to his associates, and they refused to sit in court with him. Thinking a mild course would reclaim him, the people offered terms of settlement, which he refused, and became more bitter in his error and more open in

A few weeks ago the Secretary of War authorized General Wool to ascertain whether clothing, and other articles necessary to the comfort of United States citizens, now prisoners of war, could be sent to them.

The sale of Spirituous Liquors Interdicted at Suffolk. The Suffolk correspondent of the Petersburg Express says that Col. Gragg, commanding the Confederate forces at that place, and the liquor dealers, are still at loggerheads. The following order was issued last week: Headq'rs 1st Reg't S. C. V., Camp Huger, Nov. 17, 1861. Orders No. 57--The orders heretofore issued to prohibit the sale of liquor to soldiers having been evaded, and abuses having taken place.

As Commissioned officers will, upon no account whatever, send any orders for liquor by either soldier or servants; and no paper purporting to be such order are to be considered as genuine. Any person in or about Suffolk offending against this Regulation, may expect to be dealt with in a summar
