It is nevertheless known that a feeling amount,

able that the firing beard was caused by en

changed, and on one occasion cavalry was
substituted for the advanced posts, aud two
lines of infantry pickets were posted inthtir
Frequent changes of the position of some ot
Lee's camps are noted, piohably by substituting
well-known laithtul regiments lor those d is -

ing the scarcity of iootf in the enemy's army
are confirmed. Only *4 pound of salt pork isai
lowed each man per day, and a small quantity
of flour in addition, constituting rations. Tea,
sugar and Coffee are myths in the service. Ac
counts received by prisoners and refugees all
concur that the retjel government has not dis
tributed any clothing since ohr movement on
Mine Run. Some of the Georgia troops have
received a Email supply of clothing from that
State, hut blankets with them are getting
scarce, and command a heavy premium.
Intercepted letters from rebel ladies show
that of the three thousand cavalry sent into the
Valley dmlng the recent told weather, not over
four hundred had returned. Many were fro
zen to death, and oihers frost-bitten, and sought
refuge in farm houses and villages. The en

TtlE KAHISH CRISIS.
The Post says the Austrian and Prussian
representatives will doubtless quit Copen
hagen, and war may be formally declared, but,
it is still possible that active hostilitieb may not
instantly follow. Neither Austria nor Prussia
can possibly wish for a senous war with Den
mark, and we suspect that their present policy,
however dangerous, is pursued from a sole
desire, in consequence of their defeat in the
Diet, to become, so far as regards the other
powers, masters of the present situation. Tne
allied Powers of Prussia and Austria on one
side, and Denmark on the other, would be the
belligerent parties, and the German Confedera
tion, that is to say, the minor Germau Powers,
would no Icnsrer have a right to interfere. Ia
the pendingdispute, Austriaand Prussia would
be the sole arbiters of the conditions on which
they would be willing to conclude peace.

^"Bishop Wood, of the Roman Catholic di

His attention was called to the subject bv tae

his sanction from the Catholic Herald^ and has
caused a "pastoral" to be read in the various
