Thomas Jordan, Assistant Adjutant General of the rebel army at Chattanooga. These papers include confi dential letters from (Jen. Beauregard both to the Adjutant General, and Inspector Cooper, and to Gen. Bragg, specifically laying down a plan for military operations in the West and South West, by which our forces were effec tively concentrated to meet the demonstrations recently made in pursuance of it. According to Beauregard's programme the objective point of the rebels were, first Louisville and then Cincinnati, and lie was particular in stal ing how it wa» best to reach them from Chat tanooga, with Buell at Huntsville ami Steven son. It was his opinion that a detachment could take Louisville, while the main body would be marching to Cincinnati. He con templated the construction of a work at the former city for the command of the Ohio and the canal, and the destruction of the canal as soon as possible, so completely that future travellers would hardly know where it was.— To keep the command of Cincinnat i, he would construct a strong work, heavily manned, at Covington.

Tlie Shite Treasurer lias paid tlie United Stales Assistant Treasurer, on account of the direct tax levied in this State for national pur poses, $03,000 in legal tender notes. The motley was paid into the State treasury in gold, and much indignation is manifested against the treasurer for changing the gold for notes before settling with the treasurer. The Gov ernor formally protests against the Stale spec ulating at the expense of the National Gov ernment, and public opinion is apparently in his favor.

Stuart a few minutes before he crossed the river w ith his marauding force, in retreat from Pennsylvania. Stuart informed him in a sarcastic manner that he had fooled tile whole party, but regretted that he hud not accomplished what was intended when lie started, as he was expected to reach Frederick uc'iiwj im; ^ufuiuui' lav owi to at iu.it point, then destroy the bridge over the Mono ciioy river; but Unit all tilings takeu into con sideration, he had carried out his programme with much success. Stuart's men and horses were extremely exhausted, but the former were in high glee, and from the looks of the clothing on their horses, and that which they had on their persons, and that which they had tied on their extra stolen horses—which num bered about one thousand—a change would be very aeccptible, especially shoes and boots of which they had a large quantity. Gen.Stuart sent his compliments to a number of United (States officers with whom he w as acquainted in old times. Hines*, of Secretary Chase. ARRIVAL OF STEAMERS. New York, Oct 13.

These railroads make mince meat of horse-flesh—the iron horse is too much lor mere horse lle-h and blood. And by the way, do our readers know what becomes of all the dead horses ? We had seen so many horse lunerals pass by our residence at Wood ford's Corner that we became a little curious on this subject, and when the hist victim of the railroad was carried by we went out ami join ed the cortege, if not as chief mourner, at least as a sympathizing friend of all ill-used and un fortunate horses. We soon discovered their fate when once they become old and useless or are killed by accident. They are immediately sent to the bone boiling establishment of our neighbour, Mr. Maurice Dearborn, where they arc skinned, and bqjled, and every part of their bodies turned to a protitable use. Of the skins whips are manufactured, and they are also cut into striiw to be used on the boxes of sugar we import from Cuba. The flesh is boiled, and, the bones having been extracted, is fed to the hogs or thrown upon the manure heap— horseflesh being thus converted into pork and potatoes! The bones—the large ones having been sawn into pieces by steam power—are sold to manufacturers in New York, who man ufacture from them knife and fork handles and. various other articles. Mr. Dearborn’s place is a perfect Golgotha, the pile of skull bones, and breast bones, thigh bones and shin bones, reaching mountainous proportions. Of the hoofs buttons are made. The manes ami tails arc sold to the Shakers, who manufacture horse-hair sieves. Thus the noble animal is all appropriated, and is scarcely less useful in death than in life. Though we cannot say peace to his mimes, let us rejoice that he no longer meets the fate recorded in the sailors ditty, sung when seated around their dinner of particularly had beef:— “Old horse! oM horse! what brought you here! From Saccarap' to Portland pier I've carted boards this many a y ear; Till, killed by blows and sore abuse, They salted me down for sailor’s use. The sailors they did me despise; They turn me over and damn my eyes; Cut off my meat and pick my bones. And pitch the rest to David Jones.” (Transcript.
