General Ihomas but achieved b magriflcent victory overtbo rebel srmy under General Hood, In front rf Nashville. Tfcls glorious news Is conve.red in an olcisl despatch from Secretary SUnton, who says that, though tbe battle was not yet ecded when the intelligence was transmitted, tbe whole action showed It to be a Splendid success. The engagement commcnced at Dint o'oltck yesterday morning, when an ati&ck was made by Cenerat Thomas' men on the rebel forces, who were driven back throughout tbe entire extent of their lino, ttoir earthworks being ail taken from tbom, except on tbelr extreme right, where t>o serious assault was mtde. On their left (tbe Union right) they were d:iven back five miles, forced entirely from tbe river, and *11 their intrenclimi t:U> were taken. Their centre was pushed back from one to three miles, with a lass to them of seventeen cannons and about Gftoen hun dred prisoners. The casualties in G-uernl Thomas' army ?re said to be lirrbt. The wbole of ikod's army,e,cept his cavalry and a Email force near Murfreesboro, was e igaged. General Thomas bag detached a sufficient force of cavalry from bis army at Nasbvtile to pursue and rout any rebel forces north of tbe Cumberland river. Gene rals Stooeuaan and Burbridge have united their forces tn East Tennessee, and are following up Brccklnrldge. The advance guard or the Union troops under General Ucfoek has bad a skirmish with tbe rear guard of the rebel General l.yon at ElKion, Kentucky. At Hopkins ?Ills Ceneral Lyon plundered tbe stores, burning what be could not carry ofl. He conscripted every uao he could And. Tbe release of the St. Aibaas raiders by a Montreal judge and the firmegs manifested by our government at Washington regarding the course to be pursued hereafter (or the prevention of rebel raids rrona fie Britteh pro duces. together with tbe spirited ordjr issued by General i>ix, appear to have very much excitod and alarmed tbe l aaadian (OTSrnment and people. The Attorney General br.s decided that the liberation of the raiders was wrong, and has ordered that they be again taken into custody, and also be cotn;*l.ed to give up tbe money stolen from tbe St. Albans banks. Warrants for tteir rearrest were issus 1 lmm?diKteiy after their discharge; but no opportunity to serve these was aTorded, as their friends bad s!e!giis ready and waiting for tbem, and as soon as taev issued from the court room they were hurried oT t.vsn cow a show is be.ng made of sending officers, wbo wilt of course Lever Ond tbom, in pursuit. Toe judge wbo discharged the raiders and tbe Montreal Chief of Police, Cana dian telegrams say, will probably be severely dealt with. It is also Hated that .in eClciuut military force la to be Immediately sent to the border towns of the province, to prevent further rebel depredations. The Canidian Cabinet had a long session yesterday, and It is understood thai the conduct of tbe Mon treal judge to setting the laud pirates at liberty was unanimously condemned by tbe u.eoibers. The Iu formation rccelvod In this city last nifht from Canada, Jcavee do daubt or tba dishonest purpo ? nLich led to tbe dtscbsrge of tbe^e men. Not con'est with rt leasing tbe guilty marauders upon a p^ttifogg.cg point o' law, the Mon treal moffu ral* Utrt gift up to ihtm the mm-y which they $!ote from the t'ermnru tanks, amownfir?</ to one hundnd and r\0htithov$and ttrt'art, which was ir.:me<li*tely exchanged for gold by tbo Montreal broker.4. This is am ?us act Identities tbe Canadian autb' rlt es with tbe rebe s, and l-aves nething to b >pe for except from tbe vigor us aod energetic measures ct General Oix. There can be no doubt but tbe 81. Albans raiders, thos furnished with jieeuDiary rr?enrces by tbe Canadian judiciary, will at once ta*e nieagurfs to rer.ew tbeir lucunlt ns mto rur territory. Tbo public will t>c gUd to loom thai this d?t.j;er h?! tieco foreseen at d pri vided agalbst by General Di*.

It *u thought by the messenger who brought tbls despatch to Wasblngtoa that tbt national troo;? bad taken Ud ento'fd Savannah about tba time tbat the steamer wblch carried bioa North was leaving fart Royal harbor, as tbe veesels of tbe fleet could be seen at a distance g?yly docoraied with flags, and a salute was belog (ircd. Tbe rebel newspspere continue to give accounts of "sevore engagements" with Sherman's cavalry and in fantry, during their march towards the coait, In all ot which, of course, tbeae veterans were "badly de'eatcd" by tbe cripples, ocio^eaarlans and children or tho Georgia mifitla. Oneof theap arc ucts, wblch pretends to give a description of one of tbe ekir m lubes between Kil|>airick and Whealer, on tbe Savannah Railroad, and which fays that the rebels, a ter bslnj vastly outnumbered, "retired, figbllns!, inflicting a heavy loss on tbe eucmy," U very appropriately sigued "Brtgg."

Our Northern Bottler Trouble*?A Cana dian Srinatloa A?aluat (oariul-Uen. Suaiuiuea toy lb? Law and Publle (lpialon> Tbe late order of General Dix, giving notice to our Canadian neighbors that in case of any further rebel raids into tl.o United States from Cuiiada, "whether by marauders or by persons acting under commissions tiom the rebel au thorities at Richmond," tbe offending parties, if ncceasary, will be pursued beyond the fron tier, seized wherever found, and brought to New York for trial by court murtial, is an order which meets the hearty approval of this com munity. Excepting from one or two rebel sympathizing copperhead newspapers, we have heard nothing but cxp ressions of gratification concerning it. Sincu the release by Squire Coursol, of a petty Canadian cowt, of those St, Albans marauders, on the ground of no jurisdiction, the public mind on this side the border has fallen upon the common sense con clusion that the jurisdict'on over such cases, even on the soil of Canadn, must properly be long to our military authorities. In acting* upon this idea General Dix, iu the public esti mation, meets exactly the question of jurisdic tion atid the necessity of the case. But, in justification of bis course, he is also right in saying that it is amply authorized, '?under the rules of law recognizcd by all civilized Stales, in regard to per sons organizing hostile expeditions within a neutral territory, and fleeing to it for an asylum after committing acts of depre dation withiu our own, such an exercise of authority having becomo indispensable to pro tect our cities and towns lroin incendiarism, and our people from robbery and murder." On this point thp Toronto Globe fairly and frankly says that, "if these raids continue, we shall not only render it probable that Canada inuy be invaded by United States troops, but we shall actually give the United States a right to do po." In support of this opinion the editor of said paper produces this emphatic and applicable passage from Dr. Phillimorc's valuable and authoritative book on international law, to wit: "A rebellion or a civil commotion, it may happen, agitates a nation. While tbe authori ties are engaged in repressing it, bands of rebels pass the frontier to shelter themselves under the protection of the cotermiuoui S ate; and from thence, with restored strength and fresh appliances, renew their invasion upon tbe State from which they have escaped. The invaded State remonstrates. The remonstrance, whether from favor to the rebels or feebleness of the Executive, is unheeded; or, at least, the e/il complained of remains unrodre?sed. In tliis state of things tbe invaded Stato is war ranted, by inter national laic, in crossing the frontier, and in taking the necessary means for her safety, whether these be the capture or disper sion of ih? rebels or thr. iL'structUtii rjf their strong hold, as the exigencies of the case may require." This exposition of tho law by Pbillimoro is thoroughly sustained by Vattel and other re cognized authorities. Indeed, as General Dix says, the rules indicated '-aro recognized by all civilized States," and, be might have added, are unhesitatingly put in practice by them all wbeu deemed necessary. Tbe supreme law of nations belug thus explicitly declared and es tablished on our side, we are not surprised that the Dogberry decision of Mr. Justice Coursol, of Montreal, upon whicb tbe St. Albans raiders were discharged, has raised a lively seu Bition of astonishment, disappointment and dis gust among tbe Canadians, from Montreal to Toronto and Quebcc. So hostile, it appears, is this general excitement ef the provincials against the ignoramus Coursol and his legal ad visers and assistants concerned, that measures have been adopted, not only for tbe rearrest of the St. Albans vagabonds, in view of another trial before a higher and more intelligent court than Coursol's, but that something in a military way may be also expected from our Canadian neighbors for the repression of theso rebel conspiracies against us in their midst. The best of it is that this Canadiun indigna tion against Cjursol appears to have been spontaneously axd simultaneously manifested at different points, and in advance of the re ception of Gen. Dix's order of tho Uth. Cut a previous order of his to tbe same effect was probably not forgotten, and was, we dare say, rightly understood as meaning that, should the eccasion require It, the order will be executed. Tbe Canadians, too, have a lively sense of their helplessness in attempting any resistance against a Yankee Invasion. They know, too, that the great object of the rebel emissaries among then is to involve England, in defence of her Canadians, in a rupture with the United States for tbe benefit ef Jeff. Davis; and we admire the sagacity of ber Majesty's provincials as manifested in their movements and expres sions of public opinion against aay such scheme. We are gratified that they are waking up at last to the danger of tampering with or aiding in any way the rebel conspirators and incen diaries in tbeir midst. We hope, too, that having discovered their course of policy and of safety, they will not only pursno it to the re capture and the condemnation of the St. Albans raiders to a proper punishment, but to such measures of honest neutrality as will make even Canada teo hot to hold such plotting rebel vagabonds as George N. Sanders and bis fellow conspirators. Thk Christmas Dinner n? Shkiwan'h Aiimt.? We have received several communications relative to our suggestion that a Christmas dinner should be providod for the veterans of Sherman's army, some of which we publish la another column. It appears that tbe people of tbe Western States are most anxious to parti cipate in tbe movement, being stimulated thereto by the fad that so many of bis soldier* come frain that region of country. Wo again urge u^ton our citizens to carry out tbe project. There is yet time to do it. The location of this valiant army is now definitely ascertained. Let us give them an opportunity of indulging in a good Christmas banquet In the Southern city of Savannah, got up on Northern prinoipler? turkeys and hoiaemade pies. A Nkw ErmRMto ok Crimr?

General Sbernsa?Til* Probabl* Cap ture of Savannah. There is hardly room to doubt that General Sherman u dow in possession of Savannah. Indeed, the capture of tbat city on the 10th has been positively annoancod; and though there is no improbability in it, the announcement is still very likely premature. General Howard's command, as we know by persons diroctly from it, was within ton miles of Savaunah on the 9th inst., and was thus within live miles of t io enemy's outer defences. General Foster reports that heavy firing was heard in the direc tion of Savannah on the 10th inst., and he sup poses that on that day an assault was made on tbe outer defences. But the capture of those defences was but a preliminary operation; and if Savannah had been really fought for and taken on that day positive intelligence to th.it effect could have started for tho fleet the same niiht, and as ttiere would then have been no obstacle to communication, that intelligence must have reached Hilton Ileadbeforo the 12th, which is the date of our despatches from tbat point. lint it is worthy of notice tbat some im portant and very agreeable news had certainly reached Liilton Head after the departure of tbe steamer which left there on the 12th; for while tbe fleet was still in sight, but out of telegraph ing distance, it was observed that the ships were being decorated with colors and were firing a salute. There is probably no exaggeration in the statement tbut tho most intense consternation prevails in both the cities of Savaunah and Charleston. Both of those cities have good rea son to dread tho presence of Northern soldiers, and to fear that if our army will bo moderate uuywhere, it will certainly not be in those hot beds of rebellion which have ever been the most extreme in their declarations of brutal hatred for the Yankees, and in their use against Northern men of all abusive epithets. There is no reason to believe that Sherman will meet with anj very considerable resistance in an as sault on tbe city. Twenty thousand is the highest number at which the rebel forces there have been stated, and that number is made up largely of militia and of tbe decrepit old men and small boys of the city. All these areundet command of the great Beauregard. Sher man will not strike until ho has his whole force in hand, and then he will show the Southern chivalry how a veteran army can make a grand assault, if necessary, and bow useless will be any quantity of militia to resist it. The news (rem General Howard verifies the facts insisted upon by us the other day, tbut Shermun'a urmy id fresh and in good condition, aud well supplied?despite all the wild stories to the contrary that have teemed in the rebel papers. Sherman's skill as a strategist is made more clear by the fact now known that Sa vannah was, from the first, his objective point; but he so drew attention to other points tbat the Bouthera papers came to the conclusion ttiat he did not knew exactly where to go. and " drifted" to Savanoah. He has also correoted tbe reltel error in relatiou to his progress. He has not moved slowly, since he has gotten to bis destination ten days sooner than he ex pected to. He did not think it would take him ten days longer to march the distance, but he thought tbat it would tako longer to destroy tho railroads. He thuught tbat the confederacy was stronger than he hu9 fonnd it, and that it might put some trouble in his way. It did not, however, and his only delay has been merely the timo necessary for completely crippling so muny roads. Thk Phosphorescent Fukh4.?The incendiary rebel organs of this city agree in eulogizing Mr. Justice Coursol for releasing the St. Alhans raiders, and In criticising Major General I)ix for issuing his order te capture rebel marauders wherever found. These papors are not con tent with defending those rebel incendiaries, who attempted to barn down the city of New York, nor with acting 'u conccrt with tbe Rich mond organs of the rebels, but they now play into the bauds of our foreign enemies, and ap plaud tbe unjustifiable action of a Canadian judge. Thus the incendiary press proves itself tbe ally at ouco of British powor and of JafT, Davis. OrrR* n?
