This is merely a temporary arrange ment, wbicb will enable the Company to commence grin ling immediately, and by ruuning tho mill eight and day. it is hoped that with this mill and that of Mr. Turtou, the crcp now ready (about 2u0 aires) will be saved.

The Ewern news will be of great inter est, as the Emancipation Proclamation was to have gone into force on the 1st of January. What its results will be that is the enigma. With the strong wind now prevailing the Yankee ouht also to make one of her flying ten-day trips. The shortest passage recorded between Sjn Francisco and this port, was XDide in the month of January.

We glean the following summary : Hattle of Frederick-buri,'. Gen. Rurnside's cfl:.:i 1 1 report of tho battle cf Fredericksburg is publi.-hed. He m-sumes the re i ciisil:!:ty of 'iioviu the arcny -icros the Iltipa hannock at Fr;dei icksburg sooner, and at ditierent places from that anticipated by the President, Secie tary cf War, and Gen. Halhck. and aligns as his reat-itis that during the prepaiarions for crosring at the place he first eeiecie l, he discovered the enemy had thrown a large portion of his force down the river, thus weakening his defenses in front,' and he hoped, by throwing his whole command ra;ndiy over at that place, to tepariite, by a vigoious attack, the lorces of the enemy below from the force behind the town, in which cae we could fijrhl him with a gieat a Ivuura.e in our favor. Hut for an unexpected and unavoidable delay in building the bridges, which gave the enemy H4 hours to concentrate his forces in a Btrong (Coition, we would almost certainly have tiucCt-edtd, in which cae the battle Would hfcve been more decisive than if he had crowed at the j I ice first selected . As it was, we came very near ? a suc cess, failing, however, in the accomplishment cf the tnaiu object. We remained in line of battle two days long enough to decide that the enemy would not come cut cf his utrong hold to fifit us after which we re cros.-ed the river. The men returned to their respective campiog grounds, not the ieast discouraged or demoralized. He adds the fact that he decided t move from Warrenton cn this line, rather Hg tinst the opinion of the President, the Secreiaiy of War, and Gen II illttk, nd that the whole movement being left in his hands makes him tOsponsible. The official reports of losses in the late battle make the number less than rejioited. being about l,4i)!J killed and 8, (ft. 0 wounded. A large poitioii of the Wounded are only slightly hurt. Washington, Dec. '22. Thus far obout 7,000 wounded h:ive been brought here from Falmouth, Va. Nothing of importance or interest from the Army of the I'otiiinac Came esteiday. No new movements of the enemy has been observed. The statement that Iiumside has ten iered his resignation is not believed by members of his start, and it is probably untrue.

Tie Timts" Washington Fpecial dispatch says: It is not well for the public to cherish an illusory hope that the Cabinet imbrog lio is settled. Mr. Seward to-day declared to one cf his friends that his resumption cf ministerial duties was to le dependent on two conditions, the non-fulfillment of which would compel Lis resignation. These conditions are not stated. Although Mr. Chafe has signified to the President Lis consent to return to his department, it seems I apparent that his action has also been made to de pend. so fir as permanent occupancy goes, upon contingencies. The personal relations between Messrs. Stanton and Rlair have long been most unfriendly, an. I it Js a sinHicnf fact that jjator a le was to-day closeted with the President for several hours, during which time the latter was denied to all visiters. It is within probability that members of the House have become involved in the struggle; already Rep resentatives ae anxiously consulting on the subject, and unless the Piesident yields, it will soon be Con gress asainst the Executive. It is not difficult to foretell the result cf such a struggle. The Raleigh Slute Journal of the 18th, says nin regiments and two batteries arrived on Tuesday, and several other brigades are on the way to reinforce the Confederates. The Richmond Examiner states that the number of the forces at Goldsboro on the evening of. the 17th was 17.000, with reinforcements hourly arriving. Gen. Smith (rebel) is confident of success. Gen. Lee has telegraphed him thit he could spare him 30.0(h) j men. The Monocacy railroad to Gol Isbcro has been j torn up by the enemy (federals), and of course nil j communication with Wilmington is cut off. I-aiiropensi. The great fight for. the'cha nipionship of England, between J;m Mace and Tom Kin?, took place on t!ie J 20th of November. After fighting 21 round. tnot j of which were iu favor of Mace, King put in his i sledge-hammer blows and knocked Mace insensible, j The l itter fiil. d lo come to time, when King was declated the victor. It is reported that Heenan i agreed to fight King for the champion, hi; and 500. The contributions for the destitute Lancashire oper- j atives continue to be received on a most munificent ; scale. i An extraordinary genernl meeting of the Atlantic ' Telegraph Company is called for the 12th December, j for I he purpose of considering the proposition for isu- ! ing XoOOulO new cipital in preferenciul shares of j 5 eaeh, bearing 8 per cent, interest, guaranteed by j the Rritish Government in event of its success. The Relgian Parliament has voted half a million j of appropriations for public, works, to be applied to j the relief of its distressed cotton operatives. i Z.U Patrie states that Prussia has virtually inti- j mated to England and France that she will not bs prepared to recognize Prince Alfred ng King of ! G reece. j The Constitiitioinel denies that France has sent a j feconi note to r.nsianu ana itussia lor mediation in American ntfurs. A Liverpool paper says Capt. Maury had proceed ed to St. Petersburg as Commissioner from the Con federates. Nt- w Yopk, Dec. 20 We have the following ad li tional news by the steamship Scotia : The Queen cf Spain, in opening the Cortes, Pii-I that grave events had transpired on the Cuban coast, but she felt confident that these events would not chanie the excellent relations heretofore maintained with the United States Government. Gladstone in a published Utter denies that he haa expressed any sympathy with the Southern cause, yonsidering it out of his province to praise or blame in such a complicated question- He claims to be a much better friend to the North than those who en Courage them in the ptosecution of their hopeless and destructive enterprise Interesting and very encouraging statements have j been submitted to the Atlantic Telegraph Company j by Cart. Haskvsin regard to soundings. j The French Government has concluded a contract fr tiie supply of their army in Mexico for two years. Permanent recti pat on is inferred. The cotton famine and distress in France is in creasine in severity. The Greek question is unchanged. Frotii tho- London Timts of 12th Noveniher. Folly or the French Offer of Mediation. What does France desire that Europe should propose to these belligerents ? What hope can we have that the Federal Government would submit to a susptn pion of arms by sea and land for six months? Such nn armistici would undoubtedly be very c ui ven 'e:it to the South, very convenient to England, and very c.-nvenient to France. The South, jelicved from the blockade of their coast, would hal.le to exchange their j now valueless millions of cotton bales for sugar, salt, ! te . coffee, calico, broadcloth , !ea:h r and ev ery other j article not contraband of war, under the want cf : which they now so desperately suffer. England j would be able to set her mills to work. France would j recover her lost customers for her silks, nr.d wines, ! and her Paris articles, and would also obtain the cotton which she now buys through us ut fabulous ! prices. Doth the mediators would find their account j in such a mediation. But what would the North get I by it? To hrr it would be a request to allow us to ' tie up her right arm. We are to ask her to allow j her enemies to re-provision themselves ar.d to j restore their credit by the export of their cotton ; . rn 1 we are to ask her to cut herself off from her ! iiost promising field of operations for a whole ' year. The season for the employment of the North- ' ren gunboats is about to re commence ; tha spriitig will brinir the possibility of second invasion of the South. Yet we are to ask the North to : forego their test opportunity, and to remain inactive till the heats of summer again drive their armies northward ar.d render the banks rf the rivers inaccessible to their gunboats. If the North i determined to make peace, and is anxious only for an excuse, then, indeed, this or any other mediation would be feasible. Rut there is no evi dence that the struggle has yet arrived at that point. If we go into this matter a a European league and draw upon ourselves inu!t, we shall be cornpeilel to vindicate our honor. We cannot bick out under such circumstances, and we cannot tell how far even's may carry us. CH.S. WOllMTt h ROOKS, W. THANK I II'VJED . HALL, j a (HAS. YY.
