Washington, -Nov. 11.
This evening's Washington Star says, it
deems it not improper at this time to state
that Sherman's army has been heavily rein
forced and otherwise strengthened, in the
cavalry all his dismounted having been C
remounted. The force uinder Thomas now
in Hood's front, also has been reinforced
and strongtbened, and is amply sufficient to
to insure that Hood can do no damage to
speak of in Tennessee or Kentucky, which
seems to be his aim. Sherman is operating I
with his other five corps in different bodies
in Hood's rear and is already between him
and any possible line for his retreat south,
when he sees a necessity for so doing.

IL. Q., Army of Potomac, Nov. 11. 1
On Wednesday evening at 7 o'clock, a
force of the enemy was seen massing in
front of our line near Fort Steadman. The
guns of the fort opened fire, driving them
to their works. The rebel batteries replied
briskly for a time, but were soon. silenced
by our shells and smortare. A force of
about 160 rebels made a sortie from their
lined and attempted to penetrate ours, but
being met by a salute from our pickets,
were net long in finding their Way back.

The Post's special says, the Richmond

confident that Grant is preparing for an-u

New York, Nov. 9.
The Boston Advertiser has an aecount of
the capture of the pirate Florida by the
Wachusetta in Bohaia harbor. The pirate
was cut out and carried out from the midst
of a Brazillian fleet. As the Wachusetts
steamed down the bay with her prise in
tow, she was fired on from Fort St. Mar
cillons and pursued by two Brazillian men
of war, which were left behind.
The Herald thinks the capture clearly il
legal, being a breach of the law of nations
which just now, more than most powers, we
are interested in upholding.
The Macon Telegraph says of the propo
sition to arm slaves, unless the President
and Congress shall determine to blot out the
landmarks of the past, we warn them to
beware. Such an experiment would virtu
ally accomplish that for which the enemy
have struggled through 4 years of war. It
would be adopting the spirit of abolition.

The session of the rebel Congress com- -
menced on Monday. S:xty-two members r
were present. In the house, bills to raise
additional troops for the rebel army, to
ab)olish promotion by seniority and make i
merit the basis, were referred to the mili
tarv committee. A resoluition, offered by
Murray, of Tennessee, declaring that thel
Confederate States will give neither aid nor
sympathy to the establishment of a monar
eIty in Mexico, was referred to the commit
tee on foreign affairs. Swan, of Tennessee,
offered a resolution, declaring that no exi
gency exists, or is likely to occur, requiring
the placing of negroes in the army. 11l
also introduced a resolution to recall'all the
commissioners from foreign nations. TheI
discussion upon the resolution was brief,
but sharp. Miles, of S. C. opposed the pro
position to arm slaves. Foote, of Missouri
favored it, and said he desired waiting on
the decision of the enemy. If the ques
tion of the employment negroes were pos
sible, the decision would appear in the
resul; of the present election. If Lincoln
be elected,'he would favor giving the Pres
ident full power to employ slaves. He was
ready to raise the black fag, or anything
else 'before submission. A bill to sale
