Wasminoton, December 10. The following
Important Hel.ul documents have now, for tho
first time, been made public, having been received
t the Navy Department in the safe of the
Wachuattt:
I'abis, January 2, 1S1. Sir: When the
J'farittu, now under your command, is ready for
tea, you will sail on a cruise agalust the enemy's
commerce.
Your position is an important one, not only
With rclcrence to the immediate re-iilts to the
enemy's property, but from the fact that neutral
Tights may frequently arUe under it. Reliance,
however, is placed 111 your judgment and discre
tion for meeting and promptly disposing of such
questions.
Since tho sailing of the Sumtrr on her Tcry
lucicasful cruise, Idler, il owners of ship and
cargoes have adopted the practice of placing theut
Under lirumli protection, and this may ut, times
cause jou embarrassment. The stricti-st regard
for the rights 01 neutrals cannot be too sedulously
observed ; nor should any opportunity bo lost In
cultivating friendly rclulions with their naval ami
merchant services, and of placing the true charac
ter of the contest in which we are engaged in its
proper light.
It is not deemed advisable to too rigidly pre
scribe your cruising ground. . You arc recom
mended, however, to cover a large Held of action,
beginning ou the equator, between tho long tudes
18 degrees and 21 degrees, to intercept the. ves
sels that may be on return from California and
the Kast Indies. About the 1st of April make for
the northi rn couts of the Confederacy, say in tho
neighborhood of Cape lluttcras, where you will
most likely fall in with transport vessels carrying
supplies of provisions, men, and munitions to
their stations in North und South Carolina.
Having made your mark in that region, it will
t)e well, if circumstances permit, to in ike a d.ish
on tho New England coast, taking tare nut to bo
caught too near tho enemy's coast ou a short
allowance of lucl.
You will not hesitate to asannic responsibility
Whenever tho interests of your country may de
mand it ; and should your judgment ever hesi
tate in seeking the solution ut' any diilicu'ty, it
may b aided by the reilcctiun that you are to
do the cnerm ' property the greatest injury in
the shortest time.
Authority is vested in you to make acting ap
Jioiuuueii's to till any vacancies that may occur.
You wi.l communicate with your Government
as frequently as ossiblo through any safe chan
cel that may oiler, always taking c.ire to use the
cypher agreed upon iu any word that might
betray what you desire to cuncoal.
The maintenance of strict naval discipline will bo
essential to your success, and you will enjoin this
upon your ollUers, and enforce its rigid o'uerv
nuce, always tempering justice with huunuo anl
hind treatment. 1 urn, sir, very respectfully, your
Cbedient seivant, S. IIakhon, Flag Ollicer,
Lieutenant Cuinmnnder Ciiahi.ks M. Minium,
Coulederate Slates Navy, Considerate steamer
Jt'Utrida, llrest, France.

Sir: Your letter, without date, was delivered by
Mr. Averl t. His con lit ton of health rendering
bis return to duty at once impracticable, Lieu
tenant l'orter has been ordered to report to yon
as early as practicable ut St. Ueurge's for duty as
executive t Ulcer. Tho following engineer olli
Cers, who go with him, will al-o report to you :
Chief Engineer Wiugllcld S. Thompson, C.8. N.j
1st Assistant William Ahern, C. 8. N.; 2d Assist
ants Charles 11. Collier ami John 11. brown,
U.S. N.
For cruising funds you are authorized to draw
at twenty dsys upon Commander James 1). Mul
lock (care of Fru-ser, Treiiholm K Co , Liverpool ),
to the extent ut tifty thousand ij!i,(W i) doll u s in
Bueb sums us you may from lime to time re
quire, notifying him of such drafts.
The original of vour letter without da e Is
written iu cypher, fallen you ag.uu havo occa
sion to resort to it you will observe the following
change: Alter writing it place a figure (any to
the kit of the lirst word in cypher; place figures
(any) to the right of ihe second word in cypher;
three figures (any) to the left of tho third word ;
four figures (any I to the richt of the fourth word
In cypher, end then, with the tilth word in cypher,
begin with one figure to the left, and one: as
before. Enclosed I return a copy of a portion of
your letter in cypher, with the figures thus added,
Iu order to illunlrutu the change.
Lieutenant Averitt apprises me of your intention
to cruise near the mouth of the Mississippi. I
doubt not that a dash there might do good service ;
but with the enemy's means of intcr-coniiiiuuica-tion,
any delay in that vicinity would bring bis
fast cruisers upon your track. The only p isscs
to and from the Gulf of Mexico, between Hon
duras and Cuba on the one side, and Florida and
Cuba on the orher, would be occupied by them.
Apalachicola and St. Ma-Vs are e.ich block
aded by one steamer a sidewheel and should
vou deem it advisable, you might perhaps capture
them, send theui into St. Mark' under prize
crews, and leave the Gulf at ouce.
A dush at New England commerce and fisheries
lias always seemed to oiler peculiar attractions, as
you will see by the instructions 0 your prede
cessors on referring to thorn.
The practice of placing their commercial ves
sels under foreign flags 10 avoid capture has be
come very general with federal ship-owners, and
requires increased vigilance 011 our part to detect
and defeat it. With an earnest desire to treat
with all proper respect the rights of ncutr.ils, this
practice is an abuseofncutr.il dags, which justice
to them, no less than to our own, calls upon us
to correct 1 ami in all cases where tho voyage, the
tiuild, the oilicers and crew, or the papers, create
Mispicion of colorable transfer for this purpose,
you will not hesitate to scrutinize closely, ami
act upon your judgment. It is represented that
the liraziliiiu flag is generally used fraudulently
to cover American sliippiUg between brazil aui
the United States.
With earnest wishes for the welfare of your
self and crew, and the success of your cruisj, I
am, respectfully, your obedient servant,
8. E. M alloky, Secretary of thu Navy.
VouAw'g Missioh. To the question "What
is woman's mission i" I'uncU facetiously re
plied, "To stay at home and keep the kettle
toiling!" Ah, there are thousands of working
iiiiu'i boiuus where there would be tonfold
domestic happiness if tbe wives did stay at home,
instead of going out to work at the mill. Make
your homos attractive. Keep not only your
homes but your persons clean and tidy. Let
borne be to your husband the brightest and
lmni.iest soot on earth. Let not your husbands
be able to say that they are driven from their
homes to seek a bright lire at the public-house.
Have a bright fire at home! wives, keep the aettle
liOillng '.llrwth Workman.

Washihotom. December IS. The rUchmond
nyuiir of Fridiy, Docein'icr 10, In a semi
official editorial in favor of arming the slaves
contains the following :
"When we supplicate Europm nation for
help, we must be pn p ire-1 to rec lvo it on their
conditions ; which will be the abolition of slavery.
If we are prepared to abolish slavery, It will not
be necessary to go to European unions for pro
tection; Ih.yw ill give us not only recognition,
tmt they will lollow recognition wilh such mtor.
ventlon as w ill secure nationality and lila rty."
It goes on to state thin (lencr. 1 K. K. Lea has
wiiiten a letter to W. I'orcher Miles, of S mill
Carolina, Chairman of tbe Housa Committee on
n.ilitiny iifbiirs, In f.ivor of armiig negroes. It
argues that "Shciman, w heu he l'ois to tho coast,
will tarry there only long criougu to rest and ro
cruit lim men, and then take shipping for City
I'olnt, to act in tbo spring as a movable colu-mi
open our lines of communication, and this ne.'cs
sitaus a like column on our pin."
Continuing in an :t mut ti show tint their
present army is unable to stem the lorrcu:, it
tajs .
Shall we prolong the war for the sake of our
negroes f Shall we sac. ill. e our inl. Iron to pro
serve our slaves ? Shall wo c liaiistour country,
destroy our noble defenders, and endanger
every institution ritlnr than test an ex
periment that may givo us the moans
of recruiting our army, of assuming the
olVcn-ive, and of conquiring a speedy peace !
Niihcr rhetoric, nor argument, rior au
thority can determine whether the negroes
will make torus faithful sol. tiers. Thocv.cri
nu nt must Ic-t and decide this question. U tie
ral Lee asks that Ibis experiment be made. For
us this is sutbeicnt. Never will we put our pre
juiines aK.ii. st his deliiMT.itc judgment and
advice, lie is a rash man that does. llr Is not
a wise man that imposes responsibilities and yet
withholds means for their accomplishment."
The l-Mtptirer conduces the subject in fol-
l(.W
"rut we bate, detest, and despise the enemy far
more than we love and admiiu slniory. H our
liberties cannot bo gained but by tho sacrifice
of slavery, wo are prepared to make th it sa ri
llre, and to urge that sacrifice upon our counTy
njin. We would not return into tho Union if
every slave could be returned fo his master,
and if every giinr.inttO that human ingenuity
could devise were secured for the pro
tection of the 'institution ;' we prefer liberty wilh
free society, to reunion upon the securest basis to
slavery. Such wo believe to be the sentiment of
the people of Virginia; but we know that (tre.it
moral doubts beset this question of arming tho
negroes, and yet this experiment ought to be
tested, and tbe fact ascertained, whether negroes
w ill make soldiers.

may count 100 or 170 in a minute; but let us sup
