[From the Richmond Enquirer.] Rl< ffsoND, I>ec. 20, 1S61. I avail myself of an opportunity to write you a f?w words upon the condition ol matters in Kurupe. 1 regret that the very limited time 1 have hefor* me will compel me to be brief, and I fe.vr very unmethodical in style When I left Richmond In .lune lasMfcer* itvu a reni g-neral rryectUum that th- manufacturing necextiliee eif Kmjlnnd and France would fore them to a ijttdy recognition and interference with the federal hloclcade. There was, ton, an equally confident impression that the commercial enterprise of England would spring at once to the enjoyment of the high prices the blockade established by needing forward cargoes of arms, munitions, medicines and other stores most needed in the confederacy.

Ho long aa it is kept within these grooves, John Bull will trade aa boldly aad p romptly and cbiufly aa any one, but will not go out or the aphere of legitimate traffic. When I told them of hundred per cent profit#, they said, "ten per cent without riak, or even five, and we are your men but no range of prod's, however high, will tempt us to risk uncertainties." Those who came back some months ago know what untlrng efforts we made for this purpose, butt nro sorry to say without the surcesa we confidently anticipated. This matter, however, shows signs of continual improvement, and I hope the channeia of trade will be soon opened. I ran say. however, that powerful combinations ol money and enterprise are already formed to go Into operation in connection with direct Soithern trade aa soon as pear# is established.

England has made hers If the grand hanWitii; house of the world by her mammoth manufacturing s\Klein A part of this was the manipulation of cotton, ujion which live millions of bur people and a large (ortion of her cjuiuioriiat supremacy were dependent H r utter depeu ience on America for this staple has long been a terrible thorn in her side. But lor the happy conjunction of soil, climate and slave labor 111 the itouthera Sta es, she felt that her owu colonies could cefy all tia tions in tbo cheap production of cotton. ut*d that thus adding a virtual monopoly of cheap tnancfacture to a monopoly of production she could have the i ntire cotton trade of the world in her own hands. It was not surprising, therefore, that a larce and in: cntlal portion <?f her people and press should ha:! ihe t e in America as the precursor of ruin to slavery, an sue* n? of putting this great Power exclush aer own hands. While, therefore, this party .1 y encouragea tbo Southern revolution as a tu?-.i ol? mutual de lruction to a Power tbey both bated and feared, they were very careful not to have the government committed to any policy winch, by a speedy ending of the war and a restoration of pros|?rity to the South, would he totally destructive of their long cherished dreams of a general English monopoly, both In the production and manufacture of this most important article. Fifth?And the last, in this hurried letter is the abolition element of England and her |ieoplo. it is not to be disguised that abolitionism at the outsetjof the war was the prevailing sentiment of the British nation. I have juei explained how It was looked upon as a direct foe to bar ancient and moat cherished policy. But added to this powerful appeal was a genuine hatred and horror of thin institution. This sentiment, planted by the labors of Wilberforce ami Ctsrkson, and of late years by the active fanaticism of many of her most powerful writers, preactiers and politicians, stima lated by the artful and insinuating fictions of writers of Harriet Beecber 8to\ve order, and in total ignorance of the mitigating features which have made American the greatest possible boon to the African, had grown not only the general, hot the active and determined sentiment of the people. It is true that many of the strongest abolitionists have been pitching into the Uncoln government, but it was from anything but a friendly motivo to the South, and constituted an influence from which any thing advantageous to her cause could be expected. I have thus endeavored, in this most hurried and imperfect manner, to sketch some of the difficulties that met our Commissioners on the very threshold of thoir mission. That they have addressed themselves to these difficulties with zeal and efficiency, will not be doubted by the millions South, to whom their abilities and charac erareas familiar as household words. During my stay in Iamdon I was frequently at the rooms of < cloud M.. and can thus bear personal testimony to his zeal and efficiency. He seomed to appreciate tho necessity or educating the English mind to the proper riew of the. various difficulties in the way of his prcgrefr, and with but limited means of effecting his objeds, worked with untiring industry' for their accomplishment; and, as 1 have also written, a distinguished member of Congress is, I believe, doing all that talent, energy and a peculiar fitness for his position can accomplish. Without any other aid than his intimate knowledge of English character, and that careful style of procedure which his thorough training us a diplomatist hare given him, he liaa managed to muko the acquaintance of most of the distinguished representatives of the Tendon press, whose powerful batteries, thus influenced, are brought to bear upon the American question. This, of course, involves an immense labor, which he stands up to unflinchingly. So much for his zeal. His efficiency, I with his colleague, is manifested in the recognition of our rights aa a belligerent, and in the wonderful revolution in the tone of the English press. And this (natter is one of the very utmost importance. There is no government in the world so thoroughly representative?not one that is so entirely, so absolutely, dependent upen popular whim. The government of Eng I Mtfma iMJrr. vmm uwr uny H?y in /c/c/w u?r VKiuers w?tu tfcs public mind has been Uieabuted o)' iU errors in reference to us and our affairs,.and has given unmistakable indication of its will in our behalf. I hare endeavored to point oat the main arrora of tte English sentiment. The only available educator of tbeso errors is the press?that medium which speaks to millions. There is a very popular error, too, in the supposition that Louis Napoleon is free from popular dictation. If that were so, why does he so frequently resort to anonymous pamphlets to bring the public mind up to his views; and why, when he finds his suggestions so unpopular, are they so quickly withdrawnr The influence of this lever upon public opinion was manifest during my stay in Paris. When I first went there there was not s single paper to apeak out in our behalf. In a few daya, however, three brochures were issued which seemed to take the Parisian press by storm. One of them was the able and important latter of the Hon. T. Butter King to the Minister; another, "The American Revolution Unveiled," by Judge Pequet, formerly of New Orleans?whose charming and accomplished lady, by the way, is a native of Richmond?and a third, "The American Question," by Ernest Bellot des Minieree, the agent of the Preach purchasers of the Virginia canals. Thess works each in turn created a great deal of attention, and their united effect upon tbe French mind shows the effective character of this appliance. Messrs. Bellot and Pequet deeerve well of the confederacy for their powerful and voluntary advocacy. I can, and with great pleasure do. bear testimony to tbe valuable and persevering efforts of Mr. King, both In Pari* and London. Among the drat acquaintances I had the pleasure of making while in London, was Mr. Gregory. II. P., to whom 1 carried letters of introduction from e Virginia gentleman, long resident in Paris, who very kindly either introduced or pointed out to me the distinguished Members of Parliament. He had been, I found, a tra teller in Virginia, and inquired after several, among whom ww Mr. John C. Rutherford, of Goochland. During an hour's walk upon tho promenade between the new parliament houses and the Thames, he plied me with questions as to the " situation" in the confederacy, and seemed greatly encouraged by my replies, more so, be said, than at auy time since the revolution , commenced. I cannot close this letter without suggesting to our newspeper editors the importance of keeping their teesper, or, at least, if tbey will get angry, to make ae few rash and intemperate declarations aag>c*<tble. if tteu ' would consider a moment tunc harshly these words of tliye fall upon the ears of our friends in Europe, Ad how promptly and strongly tbey are construed by our enemies, as proof of the disruption in our councils, which they hare been predicting from the start, I am sure tbey would not misunderstand the motive of this suggestion. Among other distinguished Americans I left in Kurope, was llie Hon. Mr. De leon, late United Si alee Consul General to Fgypt,and brother of Surgeon General De Leon of the Confederate army. He lias been active in the cause of the South for oioniha, and doing, I need not say to ihoae who know his brilliant talents, tbemostelleetive service. 1 am glad w> learn here of the safe arrival at home of the Hon, R. K. Meade, late United States Minister to Brazil, and have taken great pleasure in forwarding the gratifying intelligence to his many friends in Europe. to whom bia brief sojourn there was sufficient to endear him most effectively. lu the haste of composition I forgot to cay that the farewell declaration of Mr. Yancey and Colonel Mann to ins 'ocrc rxpreuiee of the xtrongejt confidence not onto of tpctdy recognition, hid the active interference of England and France. One of the last requests pressed upon me before leaving London was to gather and forward to gentlemen of the press every species of statistical and other information bearing upon the agricultural, mineral, manulscturing, commercial, monetary ana ounr reseureeH o[ tbs South, ami enpeuaily u(x n lb' question of slavery.

With such results probable can we expect this legislation?can we oxpect this change from a doubtfully wise policy of warfare 1 THE REBEL ARMY IN MISSOURI. TH* HKBiiL LKADKK3 IN MISSOURI?PRICK AND HIS ARMV?THEIR CONDITION. [From the Memphis Avaianche, Jan. 14.] General I'arsons, Colonel Joseph Kolty and Colonel Buchanan arrived in this city last Saturday morning, in good health and spirits. Colonel Buchanan is an aid to General Parsons. The General inform.-! us that General Price has a large aruty, all of which is encamped at .springtlald. Mo., and that he is not ready yet to advance. There nro situated at Fort Scott (on the l?fl of General Price) 5,000 Yankees, and at Kolla, on his right, about 8,000, and at Sodalia and Jefferson City, In his front, about I'd.000. This number, with tho exception of two or three thousand men who hav e their headquarters at St. Louis, and have been ruuniug about ovor tho northern portion of Missouri, comprise the sum total of the entire Yankee army in that State. 'I here are about 110,000 man in arms in North Missouri, located in different quarters of the State, await a.g a favorable opportunity to reach Price's army. They bad torn up about one huudrud miles or the North Missouri'and Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad, which had stepped Yankee bands of thieving soldiers from running through that portion of the State. The 1 army is in good healthand spirits, and bare pienty of food and forage; but they need sugar and coffee. Our people should certainly furnish that gallant army of Missouriaas with plenty of sugar, as there is such an abundance of it in the confederacy. Large supplies or clothing and blanket* had arrive^ at Springfield. in charga of Colonel Monroe, and additional i supplies were on the way, which will keep our soldiers in that section comfortable; but additional clothing will be needed, ae new recruits (incoming In dally. With reference to the number of prisoners which the Yankees pretended to have taken, and which nearly threw them into exstatir At* of glorification, It seems has bean very considerably reduced?and instead of being nine hundred and five, is but one hundred and fifty. Such is the truth as we hare received it from these gentlemen. General Parsons and staff are now en route for Richmond, on business counseled with the army of tha Northwest. He is a gallant gentlemau and has a gallant brigade, and we wish him a pleasant aad prosperous journey to Richmond and back. Colonel Kelly ia one of the bravest ot Price's army. He is an Irishman by birth, and at true to the South and her people as the most patriotic among ua. He has been engaged in the light in Missouri since Its commencement. By order of Governor Jackson he burned all the bridges on the Parillc Railroad, and to-day he carries hia arm is a sling from a wound which he received at tha battle of Oak Hill. He is her* for the purpose of ergsnistng a regiment of Irishmen. Are there any sona of "Green Erin" In Tennessee who would refuse to rally under a colonel who would dare load them to victory and to glory? We think there are hundreds who will rally te nu a tamtam. FEDERAL LEGISLATION. f From the Memphis Argus. Jan. 21] We sre every day called upon to record the farcical frealu of federal legislation that transpire in the Lincoln Congress as a part of the extraordinary history of tba times. The bills proposing the indiscriminate confiscation of Southern property and the disfranchisement of Southern citizens have been already alluded to by us as measures of atrocity such as no truly civilized and Christian tuition conld endorse. We notice, from the lata Northern papers, that thia pretended right of legislation for the Confederate States is still claimed by the Wash, ington Parliament, and that we are to have a happy exemplification of it in a bill which one Mr. Hatching, of Ohio, has announced that he will soon introduce into the lower House of that august body. This measure very humanely proposes that the enlightened and Christian North shall assume complete control over the ignorant and barbarous South, reducing ell ber Suites to the condition of a Territorial or provincial government, and then immediately abolish slavery within their limit". This is another specimen of that wild and terocious fanaticism which has seized on the Northern mind since the war began?a fanaticism which neither thinks, nor bears, nor oees; bat feels, and raves and burns. If Congress passes the measure, which is a more violent form of the bill Introduced l>y Senator Baker last fall into the upper House of that body, ths world may wall regard it as an imitation of the vile and unmitigated iron despotism which Uussia once maintained over Poland, and Austria over Hungary. But, happily for the South, the issue is not now one of legislation, but of the sword?not one of lb# ballot, but of the bayonet. The more violent, and ultra the measures introduced into the I.innoln Consrea*. the dernier the voir between the Northern end 8ouihern people for ell future time.

(From the Montgomery Mall.] Some months ago we referred to the importance of p'antiug, fur in is year's crop, a broader area of land in life si*staining eeg?liililis than haa ever before been ?et apart for this purpose, rum e that time many of the ablest .journals hav -taltsn up the subject and expressed thei- editors' views frenly, but scarcely any two of them malts suggestions alike. Home argue that no cotton should lie planted this year except for use upon such plan tat Ions as are de?t itule of t he staple. Ot bers reeorameud the pitching of one-fourth, while others still advuss one-half tlie usual atuonul of cotton. Wears clearly of theoidnion that If cotton must be plauted. the least quantity of the sesd put. Into the ground the better, both for the planters and the country ut large. We arsert broadly our humble opinion, that if the next arrival from Europe bring* th? announcement of the recognition of the Confederate States by the Powers of all Christendom: and if the blockade of our porta should bo raised the next day, tha true Interest of the plan'crs would sot lead Ihern to cultivate a half crop of cotton. If the blockade were rawed now, it must be remembered that there ore abeut 4,000,000 bales randy to be pushed upon the market*, and a half crop produced Una year would awell the amount to 0.000,000 bale*, which would be seeking market before planting time next year. Now, what would be the eflbct of thus exporting six million bal'-a to m.irket in fourteen tnonibar fan any redacting mind believe that Evo cents per pound cuuld be realized from the extra two millions In the face of lha fart that a full crop would be planted next year? If we produce 2,000,000 b-iles this year, in the eveut of peace being declared we shall surely produce 4,000.000. pcrbape 6,000.000, in HMS3 and yearn following, and then the 2.000.000 crop of 1802 would rent as an incubus upon the prices of cotton?an incubus which could or would not be shaken off for years to come. It is betived that the largest provision crops the South has ever prodncd ware rained hut year. It la known that hut winter and spring Southern boats, wharves and storehouse* were crowded with Western grata, baron, Ac. Yet. with both these advantages, many, very many, worthy fam.ltes?there is no use of concealing the fact?are fhle day suffering for bread eud meat, btcause of the scarcity and consequent high prices demanded for these essentials of life. Planters themselves complain that, although they have ontum.yrt thev have no money, and cannot command money without a rninons sacrifice of cotton. Now what would bo the effect if planters could transform their cotton Into grain, pork, bacon, mutton and beef ' Tbey could at once obtain money tn any sum needed This moaey, or a portion of it. would nav Mr. B . and Mr. H. would nav Hint little account of rfr.

Ou tho 9th of February two other companies?Captain Smith's, formerly Captain Halter's, trom Barbour.and Captain Ramsay's, from Wilcox,go out. Oa tho 13th, CapUun rttivs it's, from l'ike On tils 20th, Captain Posey 's, fiom M 'bile, and on the 2<Hh, Oaptain Wood's, from Pike. The remaining oomnaniee go out in Much. Great eforts havo been made to induce the gallant First A lab. un i to re enl st. They were peorly successful, except the last one, a Cow days ago, which has been par iallv k i.-i-?K-fiil. It seemed as if it would break General Bravg'e heart to part with the First Alabama. Last week he attended one of thoir dress parades, and made a speech to the reglmcst. His appeals were strong and earnest, and bard to regist. He said that he wo :ld rathor have one such regimont of veterans than three regiments of raw troops. During that day an effort was mado to reorganize the regiment. Three companies?Captains Clarke's, Smith's and Posey's? declined to reorganize in this regiment. The seven other companies furnished a small number each, about 250 m i all. Tbfe number wiH probably be 1 acre seed to 800 or 850 in a few day*. It is expected then to fill up the regiment by recruits. Thus the First Alabama naves its name and its nominal existenre. Resides the 'J50 who have re-enlisted in the regiment, 88 have re-enliffted in other corps. The remainder will go home, but meat of them intend to re-enter the service at other points and in new corps. They wish to taste for awhile the joys and comforts of home. The great objection to re-enlisting here and now is, the idea that the regiment is doomed to stay at this place, or which all ars heartily tired. Tliny want to go somowhsre?anywhere else. Doubtless there ars less pleasant places than this, but it is natural in soldiers to desire a change. There is much sickness and mortality in the new regiments?the Seventeenth Alabama, land th^ Fifth, Eighth and Twenty-seventh Mississippi. I have not the exact number In each, but I h.ivo enough to know that the figures are startling. The old regiments are remarkably healthy, njt more than ore in a hundred being "off his legs," and deaths hare ceased altogether. We are living better now than ever before. There is a daily cart trade from Pensacola, which brings us a good supply of edibles. We get chickens, turkeys, ducks, fresh pork, country made sausages,1-in the dab" and "in tho link," eggs, butter, oysters, potatoes, opossums, "and so forth." Do you know what the trite phrase contained in the last three words of the previous sentence means? If you don't, inquire of tho man who, when asked what he hail for dinner on a certain occasion, replied that he had "mutton and so forth." What bad ho besides tho mutton? I bought to-day a saddle of venison, fresh from tho country, at two hits a pound. Would you like to know our market prices current? Fresh pork, 25c. per pound; eggs, 60c. per dozen; butter, T5c. per pound; turkeys, $2 25 fer gobblers: ducks, $1 50 per pair: chickens. $5 a unzmi, uauattK^, ouu. a tw-. poi wuuu, P??^I pvmwo, SI 50 per bushel; Irish potatoes, $5 per bushel; opossums, 75c. a fl 25 each. last night wo bad a false alarm, as is generally the case on a windy night. Tho waves run high. and the sentinel mistakes a big wave for a boat and fires at it. Other sentinels fire because the first one did, and there is a general fusilade up and down the beach. It takes an aid-de-camp to gallop down to McRae to see what is the matter, t Nothing, of course, and we go to bed again. Hang a false alarm. ARKANSAS. We take the following items of news from the Arkansas papers of the 16th and 17th inst. Greer's and Stone's regiments are at VanBuren. fien. Pearce.of Oak Hills notoriety, arrived at Fort Smith on the 10th. Major Harris, quartermaster of Green's Texas regiment, died on the 8th inst. His death was the result of an accident. The Little Rock Journal, of the 18th, contains the following items:?The weather programme has changed again, from snow and sleet to frosty aira, sunshine and anti-bilious temperament. The young ladies of this city intend giving an sntertsdhment st the thoatre next week, end en the 22d prox., for the benefit of the Missouri legion. The Democrat of the 16th says:?General A. W.

He will have clothing, arms and munitions of war in abundance. Oh1 that the Arkansas river would rise. The Van Buren Prtu says that the late decisive victory obtained by Mcintosh and his troops in the Indian country will form a part of the history of the present revolution, and that the nam# of the locality shall be remembered. T1m name is Chustanahlah. The following items are from the Journal of the 16th:? Colonel E. N. Hill, of Camden, leaves for Richmond tomorrow to procure authority to raise two reglmsnts of Arkansians to enlist under the standard of the great Missouri chieftain?the Ajax of the revolution?Sterling Price. MANTFACTOIMR IV ARKANSAS. The Little Reck Irw. Dnnoeraf furnishes the following particulars of the progress of manufactures in Arkiniai There is a tobacco factory at Bentonvillo, in Benton county, which is said to be n paying institution. The to bacoo crop is getting to be an important one in the Northwest. There is a large cotton factory in Washington county. Tho cotton factory at Van Buren is a large affair, and in addition to spindles has cards for wool. Mr. 11'UTJ, ui iiwi I isiw" U) IW)T7 ivuu?; , u?of vi vviia ?wu have, bis cotton (factory in operation. Tbora is, also, a cotton factory in Pike county. In Newton county they bare largo saltpetre works, and are turning out large quantities. In Indpendence, and perhaps other counties, there are fine saltpetre cares which are belag worked. The rich lead nines in Newton oonnty are rudely worked. The Bollab mines in Sevier county are also yielding lead. We are told lhare la coppar in that region, and sulphur, and sulphuric acid cap bo tnado there. Halt is made on Whit# river and down near the louuianalino. The Bait works on the Ouachita are in the bands of enterprising men. There is an unlimited supply of brine, and we arc told that Messrs TTarle.v & Co. hare commenced boiling and making salt. They have a foundry at Camden which turns out cannon, and sent a battery, under command of ('apt. Reed, to Oak Hills. We have two foundries in Little Rook, one of which furnished grape shot for the army. At Hopefleld, opposite Memphis, the machine shop of the Memphis and I.ittle KockRailroad has been turned into an armory, and is altering and repairing guns, Ac. Several extensive tanneries have been started at various points in the State, whereat hides aro."*anned by the process lately discover^. The Messrs. Dyer, of this city, hare a soap and candle factory in operation. At the Arsenal there is an armory under the control of the confederacy, but the necessary machinery has not yet arrived. The Arkansas penitentiary has turned out gun carriages, caissons, wagons, boots, shoes, clothing and many ottur things needed for the army. A manufactory of coal oil is in progress on the Ouachita river. These are all entcrprlaes that occur te us while writing: but there are, doubtless, others. We would be glad to have a full list of these manufactures aud enterprises in operation or under way. We know that soveral are in contemplation, but th<> continual low state of water in the Arkansas and ether rivers has prevented the bringing machinery to desired points. Will our correspondents he kind enough to advise us of any new manufactures started or existing in their counties? While on this subject we may remark that there is good coal at several points on the upper Arkansas, in Perry. Johnson, Franklin and Hebsstian counties. In some places it is immediately on the river bank, and when the river risee we expect the coal trade will become an important one. provided the river rises before the cold weather ceases. TENNESSEE. TH* RESIGNATION Or GENERAL PILLOW. The Memphis Argus says:?tieneral Pillow, than whom no braver soldier ever led a brigade, and whose deeds liave passed into history, has resigned: and throughout the Confederate ramps in Kentucky it ia rumored < idly we hope) that General Cbaatham ia alao about resigning. Soldier loader* are not ao plenty with <ta in that army that we can afford (o spare I mm it either Pillow or.Clieatham, much leas both. Hut no 11 her we nor anyone run bo surprised to bear this, however sorry, or blame a soldier for wishing to go home when there is "no soldiering a-going." FEDERAL MOVRMENTP ON TUK TRNVBRREK RIVER. [From the Memphis Argus, Jan. 22. ] The advance movement of the enemy on the Tennessee river has for the present been frustrated by the conditio* of ihe roads. On Sunday evening last one brigade, under command of Oners! Nmith, was st Murray, Ky., but were unable to move. The remainder of his force, under General Wallace, was at Muyfleld. The whole column was between sis and seven thousand strong. During thr march much of the baggage, Ac., was abandoned. Mayfleld was occupied on Thursday evening and Murray on Saturday, lite force at the latter place eonsisted of three regimentn of infantry and Ave companies of cavalry. Three regiments, with all the artillery, were detained at Mayfleld. A portion of the river fleet were anchoredthree mllea below Fert Henry, on the Tennessee. A few shots tired by their gunboats fsll short shout thrce fourtbs of a mile. The opinion?which appeared to be well founded?at Paris, last evening, was ihat the state of the roads would not admit any advance of the enemy at present The citizens were somewhat excited, sndafew were removing their negroes and valuables. A confidence obtained, however. that the invaders would be cut off, as it was as impossible for them to retreat as to advance, unless they euuuiu uuuuuu turn nun <9 uniu. MATTER* AT MKMPmfl.

The Howling (Jroon Courier says a large lot of hogs passed through Princeton the othor day en rout* for tlio pork houses at ('larksvllle, Tcnn. The best of the joke is, they were driven from Illinois. We learn that several thousand are now on their way from Mndisonville to the same point. Not a hog has been driven North from the neighborhood of Mndisonville. This doesn't look much like starving out the Southern confederacy. MATTKHS IV COMMBU9, KY. The rrmfederat* A'?*ii of the 18th Instant contains the following Items ? The stcamor t'harro Is reported captured and burned I by the enemy near oral New Madrid. Wo doubt the truth of the report. Among the prisoner! from North Missouri, taken to St. 4 882. . U?ls by the federals, is Mr. John K. Lincoln, a cousin of the Prist lent, who is a respectable farmer of Clinton county, Mi^eonri, charged with aiding the secessionists. Colonel Neely's regiment and Kennedy's battalion left yesterd.iy morning lor Maytleld creek, in search of the Lincoln, oa. We hope that they may "play the devil" with the feds. We also loarn that several cavalry companies wont out, with sabres g.istcning and steeds fat and sleek. The boys are dc to named to tiy the spunk of the dastardly invaders'. The \cuts of the 17th says:?We have been put under information that a halt million was shipped a few days ago frout a curtaiu point, und that our troops will bo , paid oil in a short time. Wo are not.responsible for its accurscy as stated. Several regiments have received orders to make out tlieir pay rolls, and the orders have beon promptly obeyed. This occurred yesterday. No doubt a portion of our troops will receive their pay this week. Logwood's cavalry battalion arrived here last night from M"iiuow, where they were eiicuinped for some time. Wo had the pleasure of receiving a number of whole Fouled soldiors and gentlemen from this battalion into our sanctum We karu promised somo sport very sriy fioin them. We understand that a number of prisoners escaped night beforo last, by breakiug through that miserable abortion situated on the bank of the Mississippi river, called "the guardhouse."

General King, an old, wealthy and esteemed citizen of Perry county, Alabama, died at his residence on the 11th instant. The British residents in Mobile are organising into a military company for the defence of the city. Gsnkral Frost.?The Little Rock Journal of the 17th Inst, says that this gentleman, who has been on parole as a Camp Juckson prisoner uotll very recently, Is now encamped at Jacksonport, with one hundred of his gallant adherents, awaiting recruits In order to join tho "old chior," Sterling Price. The New Orleans papers stats that, in the Senate of tho Louisiana legislature on the 18th inst., the bill for tb# relief of the cotton planters passed its Bnal reading; ayes 17, noes 11. It goes to tbe House tor concurrence in two or thre e amendments. The lino of telegraph from Mobile along the Mobile and Ohio Railroad was completed en tbe 18th inst. Ibis completes tbe line between Mobile and New Orleans, via Jackson and Moridian. This is important at the p-esent juncture. as the enemy, having complete possession of tho Sound, may destroy the coast line at any moment. Mr. Hugh McDonald, of the house of Berthold, Smith ft Co., of St. Louis, (one of the true blue Owns In that Sodom of abolitlODism.) yesterday made a donation of $100 to assist in equipping General Burgevin's regiment of cavalry for tho Missouri legion of Arkansians, now being raised for General Price.

Stocks were lower to-day, in consequence of the news from the Burnside expedition.
