A Bl.UK LOOK From lata Southern papers we take the following : ALARM AT MEMPHIS We have received a copy of the Memphis Appeal, from which we make the following extracts of a report of a safety meeting held ia that eity a few days sinee : Mr A. P. Merrill, the ehairman, in stating ' the object of the gathering, said, that after moaths of preparation we foand ourselves in great jeopardy in reference to the defence of the Mississippi valley. Our force was hot large enough to proteet the city. The time had come when we had to endanger our own lives in the defonce of our firesides. Every bouse had arms to use when the enemy approached, but it was a sad mistake to suppose that Memphis was to be successfully defended when the enemy had passed Fort Pillow. Every one who had a gun should either use it himself, or give it to some one who would use it. It is now time to act, to organise. We need an organisation which will bring out our military resources?our guns and other weapons of defence. The enemy is marching upon us in immense force, and With iron fleets, and we owe it to ourselves to make preparations to assist and secure oar friends who are struggling for our defence. Mr Watson then came forward and said that, while at Columbus, he made particular inquiry ies of our officers and men, and all concur in one sentiment, and urgo upon us to come into the army and assist them. They had had a terrible battle, and found that the enemy they had to meet there was a different sort of material from those met at Manassas, Bull Run and Leesburg. They were men who would fight face to face until the last man was slain, as was shown in the first that one whole regiment was cut down except forty-three men. He said he knew all about the force at Colambus?that Bowen was at Feliciana, and so strongly fortified that they could whip the devil. The presumption now is that Lincoln's forces will be sent down the Mississippi from the Kentucky side They are expected to come down from f. Cairo and Paducah. and flank us oa the right and left. If they succeed in flanking Col Bowen. they have only a few miles to go to tear up the railroad, and go to the river and sink our boats, thus cutting off our subsistence supplies, and taking Columbus without firing a gun. He said that the privates in the ranks say that if they new our people here were doing their whole duty, it would enable them to do ten times as well. He said that the army at Columbus called upon us to organize and ceme and help them He appealed to every man to offsr himself and fill up every artillery company that has not now the means of being worked effectively. When the enemy takes Columbus, it is folly to talk about saving Memphis There is not an artillery company but what oan find accommodations for fifty men. Go and help the flying artillery?go and help the heavy artillery. Fort Pillow has not enough men to man the fortifications. There are plenty of guns there, but not enough men. Our great duty now is to go where the fight is to be at?Columbus and Feliciana?and attempt to keep them from flanking Bowen and Polk. He said that Gen. Pillow informed him that application to call oat the militia for the Western District had been made to Gov. Harris, and he hoped there was no man who would wail for the call of the militia. He said that resolutions should be passed to close business hours at 3 o'clock, te drill, and that men with rifles, shot guns, pistols, and even knives and blades, should organise, and by to-morrow night we should -know bow many guns we have in our midst. In conclus on, he urged every man, old and I young, speculators and all, to go to work, organise into companies, or join the ranks and fill up others, and resolve to figut and die by . those now battling for onr rights. This would encourage our men, and make heroes of all who can bear a gun or strike for their country. Mr Howard then came forward and briefly bat forcibly addressed the meeting. He Baid we ought to fight the enemy at Columbus, for when they passed Fort Pillow he was willing, for one, to make a Moscow of Memphis He feared that there were those among us who ought not to be here. Our movements were all known to the enemy. We ought to organize, and if we hare no guns, go up as a blank regiment and take the guns of the enemy as they fall. He thought we had about 4.000 men in our city who could be spared to fight at Columbus. He was willing to go with such weapons as we had. and he had some he would loan to his neighbors The meeting reawembled at 3.30 P. M., when Rev. Mr. Thompson, Chairman of tbe Committee, read the resolutions and address whioh we have already publishedMr. Somernlle moved to lay the address on the table. He regarded it ss calculated to raise a panic in the oountry. He subsequently withdrew his motion to enable the meeting to pass upon the other resolutions. The remaining resolutions were then taken up, and adopted, except the last one, whioh was laid on the table Objection having been made te the publiea t tion of the address because it would ereate a panic, Mr. Topp said it was only by oreating a Janic that soma people ooald be aroused to a ischarge of their duty. ^ Finally, the fifth resolution was reeonsidered and the address adopted with much unanimity. THIJfGS AT MKMPH1S [From the Memphis Argua, Dec 19 ] It is time, more than time, that the people of these States should awaken more fully to the dangers at home, and bend their eyes more on k their own Government and Generals and less on the relationships ?f foreign nations. Military movements .teem coming to a stand still; with inducement te aot, we are only industrious in doing nothing. Onr ambassadors or commissioners are seised and we look to others, instead of ourselves, to force their release. Not to the toooden walls of England should M look for the liberation of Mason and Shh doll, but to I As hay otitis of Beauregard. When Beauregard reaches Washington, and Johnston CoviL^'.n, Mason and Slidell will be nearer the Court of St. Jamas than they ever were on board tbe Trent. As it is, if our independ net is won for us by the strength, of England, our revolution toill stand on the page* of history in any but an (umaUe light; and when the passions and privations of the present are past, many an eye that now sparkles with exultation at the hope of foreign aid, will droop in ahame at the unneededoonfeaaion of weak patriotism and unenduring bravery its seeking proved. If there be a proud spectscle on earth, a * bright page in history, ft is the speetaele or tbe narration of a self-making nation. If there be a humiliating position it is the liberty that ? is dae to a protectorate de/ado. though not in name. The past of Great Britain is a guarantee w of the ultimate cost of her favors. But, be ? that as it may, England's business is not oars, and God forbid that it ever should be. Look we to things at home and cease this shameful avidity.for the aid of the foreigner, an avidity which we will one day weep tears of ahame and sorrow for having encouraged. This aid is not needed. With quick action we never would have cared a rash for it. Southern valor, southern wealth, and southern patriotism were adequate to a task tenfold more difficult, if properly led ; and if they are, or have been, forced to look with anxiety for foreign help, the fault liee only with these who paralysed our arms. THE DAM EXPLOITS [From the M&rtlonburg Republican, Dee. S8 J We have heard of several attempts te destroy *? the dams along the Potomac in Berkeley ooantv, so as to nloekads the canal, through which the Yankees receive large quantities of ooal t end produce. All these efiorts have proved i abortive, even to that recently made by the [ > far-famed " stone-wall brigade," if there be SJlA/i " KllOl oiits f m - - * * * i XIX. WASHINGTON, D C . THURSDAY, JANUARY 9, 18G-2. N?. 2,772. any troth in the current report! of the last few days. From those we hear that the boats are till running on the canal from above dam No. 5. This ia not a solid structure of stoie as is stated by the Richmond papers The dam has been materially damaged; bat from ali we can learn, until there is a freshet sufficient tn carry away the ? pile shaeting," it will act as a feeder to the canal. We make these statements because we have been disgusted at the lies whloh the dam exploits have occasioned. In imitation of Yankee exaggeration by southern writers, the false report found its way into the papers that Gen. Jackson had crossed the river, run off the Unionists, and captured several pieces of cannon. It is true trat tbe fright of the Yankees across the Potomae shows that they confidently expected a visit from Jackson. Xbey were in the greatest excitement at Williamsport and Hagerstown. Many left the latter plaee, and at the former they made every preparation to destroy their magatine and other property. One of their correspondents left for tbe camp of Gen. Btnka. and afterwards wrote that he had seen fifty of Gen. Jaokson's wagons unloading boats preparatory to crossing the river. Frtm Richmond Papers* WAX RUMORS. It was said last night that a dispatch had been received here, stating that General Jackson, with 10,000 men, had marched Into and taken possesston of Romnev, In Hampshire county?the Yankees making little or no resistance A report prevall'-d in tbecitv laat night that the enemy? said to be 5,000?had taken possession of Hun'ersville, In Pocahontas county We did not levrn the particulars ?Richmond Dispatch, Monday. TBS WAR lit THB INDIAN COUNTRY. Memphis, Jan 3?A dispatch has been received from Little Rock, Ark , containing official Intelligence that Col James Mcintosh, In command of four regiments, had a fight with the forces under Opothleyholo, about 75 miles northwest of Fort Glbsonfon the 20 h December. Tbe fight lasted four hours, and resulted In the total rout of the enemy,who lost 200 In killed, wounded and misslug; 100 were taken prisoners. The Confederate loss was 12 killed and 20 wounded Col Mcintosh was still pursuing the enemy Opothleyholo was fleeing to Kansas The Confederates captured a large number of negroes, horses, fte. army or ths potomac. [Correspondence of the Richmond Examiner ] Manassas, Dec 27, 1861 ?Today our whole army 1s engaged In building log bouses for winter quarters, or In moving to sites already selected. Several brigades will remain where they now are, near the fortifications in Centrevilte, and the remainder will fail back a mile or two upon Bull Run. Gen Kirbr Smith's brigade is at "Camp Wlgfall," to the right of the Orange and Alexandria road, near the run. Near oy the whole of V*n Doro's division are making themselves comfortable in their little cottages, whi. h rise rapidly day by day under tbe diligent hands of tbe soldiers A few brigades are scattered down toward the Occoquan, where wood and water are plenty, the furthest being by Dav a' Ford Tbe artillery, with the exception of Walton s battalion, has already been located betwS?n Club Run aud Stone bridge. The cavalry tas fallen back a little, and they are now building stables and house* near Centrevlile. Gen. Stuart will remain In the advance. It is probable that Gen. Johnson will occupy the Lewis House on the battle-field, and Gen Beauregard Wler's, his old headquarters before the I8ib and 21st. Longstreet's division will, if I am correctly Informed,occupy the advanced position, and will remain where it is at present The artillerists de< .led to man the guas in tbe batteries will also remain by the fortifications In case of an attack by the \ ankee*. it will fake about two hours to get the main strength of tbe army across to Bull (Tub. Information of an approach would be given at least two houra before an enemy could come up, and In that time we could be well prepar?d to resist any force that can be brought up. This ia about tbe aituation of affairs for the winter, and it remains to be seen whether our men are ta have an opportunity of a brush with the Yankees, or whether they will be allowed to enjoy their new houses in quietness. INTERESTING FROM SOUTH CAROLINA?The arrival at New York of tbe steamer Vanderbtlt, from Port Royal, with nearly four thousand bales of aes Island cotton, has been announced in the Siar, together with a brief account of a successful demonstration made on New Year's day by the National forces against the Confederate fortlflcat on* at Port Royal Ferry, some distance above Beaufort. Letters in the New York papers give a full account of these operations, which have been misrepresented in the senthem telegraphic repots as a Federal retreat. The troth is precisely the reverse. The 8th Michigan regiment and the 79th New York, under Gen. Stevens, went up the Perry to clear out a rebel battery there which had been previously annoying our vessels and pickets, and after same skirmishing with the enemy he abandoned his fortifications and ran off to the woods. Our troops then took possession of and demolished the fortifications, and afterwards returned to their camp at Beanfort, taking the precaution to leave a small force behind them to give notice if tbe enemy should venture to return This affair took place, as above stated, on tbe 1st inst But, according to the Southern reports, there was a second and more Important fl*ht on the following day, which resulted in the advance of the Union forces to the line of the Charleston and Savannah Railroad, and taking poasesalon of one of tke stations Of this conflict we have no Intelligence by the Vanderbilt, which left Port Royal at five o'clock in the morning of the 3d lnatant Gen Stevens now holds possession of the main land, and awaits reinforcements from tbe North to proceed. At Tybee Island tbe men were still busily at work on tbe entrenchments The force on the Island consists of the 46th New York regiment and some laborers The workmen are occasionally interrupted by shota and shells from Fort Pulaski, which had fired on an average two shots daily Our men, however, had suffered no injury from them. The Demand Treasury Notes.?The bill'matured by the Committee of Ways and Means, authorizing the Issue of demand Treasury notes, provides that, for temporary purposes, the Secretary be authorized to Issue, on the credit of the United States, one hundred millions of dollara of them, bearing Interest oat payable generally without specifying any place or time of pay ment, and of such denominations as he may deem expedient, not less than five dollars each; and such notes, and all other Treasury notes, payable on demand, not bearing interest, that nave been heretofore authorized to be lsaued, shall be receivable for all debts and demands dne to the United States, and for all salaries, dues, debts, and demands owlag by the United States to individuals, corporations, and associations within tbe United States, and shall also be lawful money snd a legal tender in payment of all debts, public and private, and anail be exchangeable In sums not less than one hundred dollars at any time st their par value, at the Treasury of the United States and at tbe offices of the Aasistant Treasurers In New York, Boston, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and at the depositories in Cincinnati, for any of the alx per ceat. twenty year coupon bonds or registered bonds, which the Secretary of the Treasury Is now or may he-eafter be authorised to issue, and such treasury notes shall be received the same aa coin at their par value in payment for any bonds that may hereafter be negotiated by the Secretary of the Treasury, and such treasury notes may be Issued from time to time as tbe exigeacles of the public service may require.

Not having the paper making that statement before me, I can oely now repeat what I purposed ?o state at Jacksonville.
