Major Gtnetnl I'lcason'on :-! have just returned

The enemy lost very largely iu men nnd

My Idea was, and Is now, that when we got
tiim below Newtouia and the re tn of grain
mills and catue, we should not crowd him any
more, but rather make an elfirt to hold hint in
this land of starvation, as we would a g irrison

J'riec was in this section, hut I have seen none
that have leit him since ho was pushed otf
toward! his supplies.
My own view Is that all the elTbr:s of General
Curtis to drive the enemy and they h.ivo been
great and entitle him to credii have been to our
detriment and the enemy's advantage, for I
believe one-half of his army would have deserted
liorlhofthe Arkansas, had it not been for tho

STATEMENT OP A DESERTER,
Terriblo Condition of Southern
The Norfolk Old Dominion ut yesterday says :
"We had a long conversation with a deserter
from tho 12th Virginia Infantry, belonging to tho
4th Brigade nf Muhnnes Corps, vestonlav, by the
name ot McKarlancl. He has been In the Kebel
service ever t ir.ee the l'Jth of April, l.stil, nnd h is
participated In all the important engagements of
tho war iu Virginia since that period. Uu is a
printer by trade, and was formerly employed ou
the 1'ctcrsburg Krprei.i. Jlo sues the Rebel
army is extremely despondent, and thinks tuoy
cannot hold out beyond tho present winter,
liut few of tho ollieers are conlideut of secur
ing the independence! of the Confederacy,
but aver that Grant can never take Rich
mond by direct assault. Ho thinks it is
possible, in case of the capture of tho South-dde
road, that Lee will be compelled to evacuate that
city, l.co, ho pays, wus never in better hjiiltti,
and wears well. Mahone.'the l'liil. Kearney of
the Rebel army, is deserloed as being an ex
trimily small man, about rive feet high, and
weighing about one hundred pounds. The
mtiirtcnt in his old brigade, he sit-s, is very
favorable towards a ro-csiaDlisbmcnt of tho old
Union, and if it could bo submitted to ballot, ho
thinks the vote would stand live to one in
favor of peace and Union. The citizens are
Very despondent, having scarcely any hope of
ultimate success in establishing their Confede
racy. Kvciythleg is subordinate to the army,
nil the immense number of women and children
who are led at the expense of the city and the
Govt rimiciit have to wait until tins wants of tho
oldiirsare satisfied, and what is then leftover
is given to thi m. Society, he says, is in a droad
fnlly di moralized condition, end leeks with, rot
teni e,-s and coirupiiou. Jell. Davis is begin
ning to visibly show the elltets of the treiuun
ilous wear and tear upon him, und his health is
In a fulling conditio!!. Ho says thero are a
itrcut number of des.r crs from our side in
nnd around Richmond and Petersburg, and
that they arc mostly sulntttu cs and bounty
jnmteis, with a ptentv ol money. In accordance
with his late prnclumntioii, Jell. Davis gives them
employment, If thoy wish it, in the O ivcrnment
workshops, or if preferable, gives ihem free tr.un
iioriath.n to Mexico, Iielauil, Germany, or France.
Those who want to cross thu water are put on
board blockade-runners, and are sent out from
the ports of Wilmington or Charleston. A gre it
number of them, ho tayB, prefer JJermudu as the
point of destination. Mr. Mc Farlund thinks he
bus now had enough of it, und is p n'cctly w illing
to resii'n his military honors, and retire once
woie tu iue peaceful walks of life."

PRODADLE ARREST OF THE
Narrow Escape of the California and
We have been in possesion, for some time
pat, of highly Interesting and important informa
tion derived from Havana, in regard toa proposed
licbel plan for capturing American passenger
steamers upon tho I'acillc Ocean. Hitherto we
have refrained from giving the facts publicity,
le-t a pr mature announcement should tend to
defeat measures that had been taken to frustrate
the plot, and arrest the purties thereto. Now lhat
any danger of that sort is over, wo are at liberty
to show how narrowly we have escaped tho neces
sity of recording another fYiMiKi.te art' ar, only on
a larger scale, upon the waters of the Paeliie.
The details of tho plot In question were cvi
siiniinated at Havana some time since, under tlio
approval of S. It. Malloi v, iho Coined rate Siv
rc'ary ot the Navy. Ita'leader an 1 manager was
Thomas A. Hoirg, holding a commission in tint
ltebcl Nnvy as Mauler, who, with a party off run
sixteen to twenty men, Icti UHana lor I'anami,
'ew Grenada, tho last of September or early in
October, for the purpose of g t ing on b ianl the
1'anaina Railroad Company's lln steamer ti'it iV
ifiila, seizing her at sea, an I then using h -r as a
piiatc vessel to capture s eaiucrs of iho V iclile
Muil Steamship Company, plying bjtween
I'liiiaiua ami San Francisco.
The party were all well armed, an 1 abundantly
supplied with ammunition concealed in thnir
bafimge. They were to take pissage in the
f.KiqVmflo lor inherent Central American ports,
mas not to excite suspicion. ll was to go on
board first, carrying his haggtgp, which was t
contain nothing suspicious. Ii' it was not
searched, lils followers were to convey on board
their trunks subsequently, with the arun and
ammunition concealed in them.
The. seizure of tlio ves el was not to bo at
tempted until sho had got to a p int u,i m tie
Central Aunriean coast, some two hundred ni'les
from l'anaiiia. where there was no danger of tail
ing in w ith any cralt that could give notice of
the change of command ot the H'uttrm tin, when
it had been effected. No s rious diillculty was
apprehended in taking possession of the (Suit,:
inula, as tier otneers were not likely to natii-ipa'n
nny danger, and were expected to bo found
entirely otf their guard and without tho nieaas
of r slstunce In their hands.
The (luiili inula carries two guns for her own
protection from aihatcers. Itelyi.ig up iti these
lor oil nslvc purposes, the pirates then proposed
to cruise for tho passenger and soecle-c urviiiL'
steamers of the California trade, until they h id
captured a' Uast one of thorn, with which, proba
bly, they would have 0 saved a trio across tho
I'acillc to l'.asi Indian waters, provided thuv
could obtain tho necessary c:ial by capture
of some of the collier constan'lv en
gaged in carrying steamer supplies of fuel to
Cential American ports, l'uiiauia, Aeaimlco. Sau
Juan del Sur, and San Francisco. Citiioatc.ly tho
conspiiators hoped to follow up their success by
proceeding, in tho (initrwiln, to tho coast of
Northern California, and thero making a raid
aealnst Hen. llallndiy's line of steamers, bo
tv een Sau F'runcisco, Oregon, and Uriiisn Co
I ninl la.
Fortunately, the scheme was dl-ovred bv
some menus, und we presume information mu,t.
lave b en sent direct from Havana to t jo li;u
iiius, iu time to frustrate thu execution, as n i
hear on priva c iiuthoiitv from 1'anaini, that iho
part cs known to bu Implicated were all there an I
ut Aspinwall, as late as the I h of this month,
at il were known to the United States C instils at
both p'a es, to the Commanders of the l'an im i
lluilto.td Cotnpoij's steamers, and to tho CniteJ
Slates Naval Connu Hitler in the port of I'anam i.
It fippetirs that the desperadoes arrived too la'e
for tho liuiiiemttta, a portion of them having gone
to Aspinwall, via St. Thomas. The (iit'ttem tla
sailed on tho &th of Ocober. Tho next Kaitam i
railroad steamer for Central American ports was
the Sulrtulur, to sail on tho I0t.li iu.t ant, and it
was understood a'. 1'anama that the piratical
pin ty were to tako passage in her. If they did
so they were promptly arrested a'trr their urrival
on board, every ariaiiycment laving been made
for tint purpose.

Kl. Recruiting is now progressing liuely, about
three hundred men per week oeing ruusunea into
the service and credited to the wards of l'hiladel
nhia. It will be observed that some ot the wards
receive larger credit than others. This is owing
to the fact that those successful wards are oiler
ing a small premium of five and ten dollars,
while other wards are doing nothing at all, their
old draft committees being no longer in exist
ence. By a proper etlort I'hiladelphia could easily
secure enough men to fill her share of quota for
a call of a half million of meu, should ouo be
made. Why don't the wards go to work ) Meu
are easily obtained now, but as soon as a call is
made they will become scarce, and high boantles
will have to be paid. It is easier for tha wards to
pay a premium of Ave dollars now than wait
until a call is wade and pay fifty dollars, and
even then have trouble iu filling their quota.
