THURSDAY JIORNINO, NOV. 27, 1862. Gen. Brafjg'i Opinion of Kentucky, Correspondence of the Charleston Mercury Richmond, Oct 20, 1862. General Brag?- Bppf ars to be In high spirits, entirely satisfied with Lis rrcep tion. lie givtt a ghnmy account of Kentucky; say lie got only eleven hundred recruiU; the people are Itottile or cowaidly, t!J-c. Doubt' less, but if tm army of liberation had whip ped tin army of occupation ( Jonfrw), ice tioutd have heard ottcr news. An omcer in BratrVs command wbo wag with him in Kentucky, says the reason be did not flight was becauso lie considered his army as the main stay of the confederacy, not to be risked in a general engagement unless positively certain of success. Yesterday we bad the (for some time) unusual spectacle or an artillery train moving down Main street. Orders were received by the ofJicers in command near the city to be ready to march at a mo nient s notice. I here is talk ( f a lan- kee attack on Weldon, and if the force at Suffolk is what they say it is, WelJon is in some danger. ' Ulriccrs from .Lee s army represent things in a favorable light. The army is a pretty large one. Most of the troops tolerably clad and very cheerful. As to contemplated movements, I refer you to my letter gome day or two ago. I he Lxammer sums up the means of relief from our financial troubles in a few words: Sell Confeilerate bonds in Europe. Jf tltat can't be done, malie lYeastiry notes, fm unliable in bonds, bearing such a rate of in terest, liawever high, as will indtlce holders to invest. Aftenoards, borrow money at any rate o f interest whatever rather tlum issue any more Treasury votes. The Enquirer also urges people to in vest in eight per cent, bonds, instead of vacant lots and barren farms, both of which will depreciate at tho first pros pect of peace. The Enquirer copies with approval the article in yesterday's Whig about tho floor contract made by tho Commissary Department. The Enquirer is timid in matters derogatory of any department of the Government. Mr. Frank Etiflin, the Chief of the Central Bureau of the Commissary Department, will have to clear his skirts. Governor Inciter has issued proclamation about tte distillation of aloahol. sio grain is to he used for that purpose, and noth ing to drink is to be made out of the al cohol under heavy penalties. But tho people are rushing apples into tho still, and the consumption of apple brandy is enormous. The higher liquor gets, tho more is drank, and it is the same case with oysters, incredible quantities of which are devoured at high prices. ! Interesting experiments have been made within the last week with the Mc Evoy fuse, which promises to prove tho surest, simplest and cheapest fuse ever invented. llighly satisfactory experi ments have also been made with the flat headed bolt, capped with wrought iron for we have little or no steel. It is not ad visable to tell how many inches of iron have been penetrated by these bolts. Let the Yankees find out first, and then the secret will be worth telling. : A number of olllccrs Irotn lsragg s army are in town. Ihoy speak of him with out mercy. One of them told me that Kentucky toas forevsr lost to us, and by our own fault. Bratrg misstates facts when he says we got but fif teen hundred re cruits in Kentucky, liu ford's cavalry brigade alone numbers two thousand; say nothing of infantry regiments that came back with our army. While Buell was retreating to Louisville, the ilower of his army having been cut tip at Perryville, B'aqg was leaving the richett country in the worltt for a region in which it is impossible for his army to suLtist. lite men are worse off f,n- clothes and blankets tlutn Lee s army.

The melting stories of Ocn. McClcl lan'sbesiegment at Trenton, by weeping crowds of sympathizers, gathered from all parts of the country to testify their adoration of tho decapitated hero, and their indignation towards the blood thirsty administration, is thus quietly exploded by the Trenton Gazette : A number of gentlemen from different parts of the state, as well as from other states, have called upon (jen. McClellan, but tho absurd reports of crowds rushing here from all directions aro entirely unfounded. An inspect inn of the hotel register will show that there has been no unusual number of Jst rangers in Treton during the week. In fact, tho curiosity to see the general seems to be very limited, and a Strang r visiting Treiiton would not, from anything visit, le, imagine that t licit" was any unusual in terest manifested, er that any "distin guished stranger" was in our midst. From Forney'a " Press." LF.TTF.ll rnil'l VAMlIilTO. The Congressional Session. ', Washington, Nov. 19, 1802. ; Everything about the capital betokens the near approach of the Congressional session. If rumor is to be trusted, it will be one fraught with intense excitement. Absorbing political questions will be discussed. The recent action ef the Administration ; the change in its policy and the commanders of its armies, the removal of McClellan and But 11 ; the re sult of the elections, and the vast expen diture of the public money consequent upon a state of war, will all raise in both bouses the most earnest debates. Ardent friends and reckless foes will keenly battle over the momentous events of the presf-nt wonderful month. Fessenden will bring his ability, and vade his ex perience to bear against the attacks of Bayard and Haulsbory, and Qarrett Davis. Thaddeus Stevens and Owen Lovejoy will mass sarcasm and inspiration against Pendleton's sophistry and Vallandig- ham's foolishness. Senate and House will both witness many intellectual com bats, and the anniversary of Lincoln's inauguration, though it will bring the dissolution of Congress, will not by any nif ans see the end of the terrible quarrels this war has produced among ourselves. The Capitol resounds with tho hum of preparation. Painters inside ami masong without, decorate the building. - The curppta are down In the Senate chamber and Represent atives' hall, and in the form er the little desks and massive armchairs arc all in place. Members aro beginning to tlock around, and the corridors even now foreshadow the session by the pres ence in them of a few of the great men of the land. The famed suite of rooms in the Senate extension, devoted to the comfort of the membttrs, aro almost ready for those who frequent them. Tho President's room, occupied about four hours in the year, and as expensively decorated, perhaps, as any other of its size in Christendom, is prepared for the session. From its walls Washington and his first Cabinet look down upon the visitors. The beau tiful mosaic floor is covered with carpet, and the plain though rich furniture is uncovered and stands out amid the mir rors and frescoes, emblematic of the na tion. Thousands of dollars have been spent adorning this chamber, that the President when, at the end of the session, he comes to the Ctrpitol to approvo the bills passed in its last moments, may have a tit place in which to exercise his magis terial functions. The Senate retiring and reception rooms vie with the other in splendor Their colonnades of native marble their mantels and uncovered floors are all as perfect as art can make Ihem. They, too, are prepared, and the chairs and centre tables are as plain and rich as their aristocratic brethern cf the Presi dent's room, This suite is one of the cu riositiesof Washington. In the city the preparation is as great as in the Capitol. New vigor has seized the hotel-keepers, and their domestics are scrubbing and scouring with praise worthy zeal. The proprietor of the Na tional has had a coat of whitewash put upon bis out-buildings. The Metropoli tan is redolent with cheap white paint, and lazy negroes are renovating Willard's with water and soap. All the town is agog for the session. J. C. The official vote of the Stale of New York for Governor, makes Seymour's majority 10,rtl3. The Republican Union vote is 29(5,470, which is G0,1561ess than the vote for Lincoln in 1860. The Dem ocratic vote is 307,083, which is 5,721 less than tho Fusion ticket had in 1800, an absolute falling off. The total vote of tho State is 003,053 against 675,100 in I860 a falling off of 71,003. In the city of New York the whole vote is 70,811; in I860, 95,083, a falling of of 18,712. Of this the Union Kepu'ulicaus lose 10.755, and the Democrats 7,987. The New York Herald has advices of the completion of two important South ern railroad connections. It. says: "It appears that at length the rebel Confederate Government has completed tho railroad connection, a distance of forty miles or so, between Danville and Greensboro', in North Carolina, and has also made a connection between the great central railway line from Selma, in Ala bama, across to the Mobile and Ohio road in Mississippi. With these two' breaks closed up, the rebels secure an 1 inland system of railways from liieh inond, through North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Missis- sippi, to Vicksburg. We may seize and hold their great railroad line which passes through tho northern borders of Missiosippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Fast Tennessee, into Virginia, and we may cut them oh" from their seaboard lines; but still in the interior the rebels will now have, from lliehmond to Vicksburg, a continuous system of connecting rail roads through the cotton States." A White lioiu.v. A white robin was shot at Auburn, Monday, by John M. Aldrich, of Worcester. Its plumage throughout is as white as tho cleanest snow, and otherw iso very beaulilul. Southern News. The Memphis Bulletin has important information from Holly Springs, Missis sippi, to Saturday afternoon, the 15th: According to this report, Gen. Bragg, with fifteen thousand of his army, arrived there last Saturday about twelve o'clock, and took possession of the town. The Federal army had not occupied the place, nor had they evinced a desire to do so. Only a few companies were in the place when I'ragg arrived, and all retired to the main body of the army, which is un derstood to be near Iludsonville, about seven miles this side of Holly Springs. Bragg immediately made preparations for the defence of Holly Springs. Pickets were put out, and at last accounts the Confederate and Federal pickets were only short distance apart- The programmo of the Confederates appears to be this: Bragg is to endeavor to draw the Federal army into a fight a short distance below Holly Springs, and Pcmbcrton is to come up on tho right and Price on the left, when, it is anticipated, Gen. Grant will be annihilated. It is evident from this movement of Bragg's that the ponfederate authorities intend to stake everything in the south west npon the result of this battle. They say that they cannot afford to lose Mississippi, and that they will not. Bragg is reported to have said, (hat tho Federal army had built fortiGcatiens at Corinth, Jackson, and Bolivar, and he meant to make them live in them this winter. It is not proper for us to state anything of the preparations which Gen. Grant has made to sustain himself against this overwhelming force. That the govern ment will give him an army competent to cope with these 150,000 men under Bragg and Pembcrton, we have no doubt; and that he will so manage the means at his command as to ensure the best poa-- sible results, his wholo military expe rience ad'ords the bestpossiblo assurance i! rom persons lately from the South, we gather a few additional items : Blythe s cavalry battaluon aro enga ged in picking up all the conscripts that can be found, and all the corn and other eatables in and around Panola county. Tho railroad trains at the South are said to bo crowded with the movements of troops frm point to point.' Jackson, Miss., is still being fortified. The belief is general that the great bat tie between the contending armies will occur there. . The people of Grenada are said to bo quite lively over the prospect which opens upon them of having to move to other quarters. There are some who are al ready beginning to calculate the chances, and prepare accordingly; others will re main. Tho Appeal people, who have been so rampageous whero there was no danger, will probably be brought up standing with some whom they have de nounced. The cars on the Mississippi and Ten nessee Kailroad now run only to Panola Station, some sixty miles from Memphis. All the territory this side of Coldwater has been practically given up already, and Grenada may be expected to be abandoned next. There is no talk in Mississippi of burn ing cotton in the localities which will have to be abandoned. They burnt eve ry man's cotton in Tennessee. . It was all right. But now their own ox is to bo gored, and they claim exemption. The people of Tennessee are represent ed to be in special bad odor with the "overseers of gentlemen's plantations" in Mississippi. it is even said that poor soldiers in the Confederate army from Tennessee, have been denied a crust of bread by the women of Mississippi. Such is the deep-seated hatred of I en nessee. A Congressional candidate was thus interrupted by an inebriate: "My friends," said he, "I am proud to see around mo to-night the hardy yeomanry of tho land, for I love the agricultural interests ot tho country; and well may I love them, my fellow-citizens, for I was born a farmer the happiest days of my youth was spent in the peaceful avocation s of a son of the soil. If I may be allowed to use a ligura tive expression, my friends, I may say, 1 ! was raiseil Mween two rows of corn. "A pumpkin by thunder!" exclaimed the in ebriate Joe. , AS ACCOMMOPATINO Cl.KUOYMAN. A country parson, who evidently has an eye to business and worships Uncle Sam's "greenbacks" more than his Creator, wrote Colonel Doyle of Detroit, a few days since, putting in his claims for the Chaplaincy. In his letter, after giving his pedigree, he informed the Colonel that be "was not of any particular denoim nation, or committed to any peculia te nets, but would be most happy to airTitn mod ate himself to the various theologi cal views of the members of the regiment.' English Ikon-clals. The London Court Journal concludes an article on English steam rams as follows: 'W have three facts with regard to tliesu iron-clad; first they are unsea worthy second, they are uninhabitable; and third, they are as vulnerable in vital part as wooden ones." Very slight objections A Sensible Englishman, ITon. KicnAnn Cobdkh, a distinguished member of Parliament, said in recent address on the American question. We are told very frequently at nublio meetings that we must recognise tho bouth, but the recognition of the South is always coupled with another object, namely, to obtain the cotton you want; becauso if it were not for -the distress brought on us by the civil war in Amer ica, I do not think humanity would in duce ns to interfere any more than iff does in any other war in other parts of the world. And now let us try and dis pel this lloating fallacy which has been spread through the country by interes ted persons. Your recognition of the South would not pive you cotton; but recognition of tho South in the mindg of parties who use that term is coupled with something more. There is an idea of going and interfering by force to put an end to that contest, in order that tho cotton may bo set tree. If I were President Lincoln, and found myself rather in a dilliculty on account of the pressure of taxation, or on account of a discord of parties in the Federal ranks, and if I wanted to see the whole population unitod as one man ready to make me a despot, X should wish noth ing better than for England and France, or both together, to attempt to interfere by force in the quarrel. You read now of the elections which aro going on in America, and I look to those cloctions with tho greatest interest as the only in dication to guide me in forming a judge ment of the future. You see it stated that in those elections there is some dis union ol parties, but let the foreigners interfere in that quarrel aud all tho old lines of demarkafiou will be effaced forever, and you will have an united people joining hear.) It was so in France in the great to gether to repel the intrusion. (Hear, revolutionary war. What was it that caused the reign of terror, but the cry of alarm that the foreigner was coming to invade them? and the aristocrats were guillotined, as traitors to their country, becauso they were friends of tho foreign ers. And let me remind you that your interference would not obtain cotton. It would have, in the present state of ar maments, very little eflect on the com batants. If people were generally better ac quainted with tho geography of America, and the state of its population, they would see how much we aro apt to exag gerate even our power to interfere to pro duce any result on this contest. The policy to be pursued by the North will be decided by the elections in the great Western States I mean the great grow- ng regions of the Mississippi Valley, tho States of Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illi nois, Iowa, V isconsin, and Minnesota. f they determine to carry on tho war, and say they will never make peace while the mouths of the Mississippi, which drains 27,000 miles of navigable water into the ocean, remain in the hands of a foreign power, we could never expect to put a period to it. lou must remem ber that you have to go one thousand miles up tho Mississippi before yon get to that Vast region peopled by eight or ten millions of souls, that will be the future depository of the wealth and num bers of that great continent, and what ever the will of the people is, New York is but the broker of their opinion, and New York, Pennsylvania, and New Eng land must go with them. It is as idle, then, as the talk of children for France and England to pretend that they can go there and reach that population, lor my part, I think the languago which is used sometimes in certain quarters, with regard to tho power of this country to go and impose its will upon the population of America, almost savors of tho ludic rous. When America had but 2,000,000 of population we could not enforce our will upon it, and when you have to deal with civilized people, having the same me chanical appliances as yourselves, and when that people number ten or twenty millions, it is next to impossible for any force f bo transported across the Atlan tic which will effect a conqest. English men aro very apt to think that they can do anything by force; let them banish that idea; their interference in this case could only do harm, and in tho end yon would not get your cotton. Even it you could, what price would you pay for it?
