THE SITUATION IN THK WEST. We deem it not improper at this time to state that Gen. Sherman's army has been heavily reinforced and otherwise strengthened, es pecially in the arm of cavalry; all bis dis mounted men having been remounted. The j fore? (two corps) under Qen. Thomas, now In i Hood's front, has also been satisfactorily rein | forced and strengthened, and is amply suf ficient to ineure that Hood can do no damage : to speak of in Tennessee or Kentucky, which . semis to be his aim. Sherman is operating with bis other five corps in different bodies in Hood's rear, and is already between him aiid any possible line for his retreat south when be sees the necessity of so doing, which, we apprehend, will not be long hence. The direction of the marching of all the fine corps with which Sherman has thrown himself upon Hood's line of communications leads to the convict ion that be aims also to take Selma and Montgomery, if not march on in the same direction to Mobile. From the facts we state above, the public will see how much reliance is to be placed in the story of Sherman's ad vance on Charleston. MARYLAND. Maryland's majority for Lincoln will range somewhere between nine and eleven thousand. Her first Congressional District (the Eastern Shore,) goes from three to four thousand bet ter for him, than it did for the New Constitu tion last month. This result in Maryland indi cates plainly that the people are earnestly anx ious to make the most of their advantages in the race of industrial and intellectual progress, se cured in the adoption of her New Free State Constitution; thousands who voted againstthat measure (which deprived themselves or their immediate friends of much nominal property,) having thus so soon evinced their reconcile ment to it, and their determination not sulkily to throw away the advantages to themselves as a people It so surely affords. THK ELECTION8. The result of the recent election in New York State is as follows:?Lincoln carries the State by from 5,000 to 8,COO majority.

J Headquarters Akmy ok the Potomac, Nov. 10?The returns of the voting in this army have nearly all been ascertained. The Pennsylvania soldiers give a majority of 3,030 for Lincoln. The Western regiments also give small majorities for the same ticket. The total vote in the combined armies before Richmond and Petersburg is put down at 1-,000: Lincoln's majority being about 8,(K 0. Several Pennsylvania State agents were yes terday placed under arrest, on account of their having blacks with names spelt wrong. They are held to await the decision of the Secretary of War, the matter having been referred to him. Uuiet still prevails on the lines, excepting some artillery firing on Wednesday evening near the Appomattox. The following order has been issued from these headquarters: HradquarUrs Army of the Potomac, November 7, IH51.?The 8th New York heavy artillery, IGUh New York volunteers and 36th Wiscon sin volunteers having been reported to the Major General Commanding as having be haved with distinguished bravery during the engagement of October 27, 1804, on Hatcher's Run, be takes pleasure in restoring to those gallant regiments the right to carry colors, ot which they were deprived by his General Or der No. 37, of September 23, 1861. 2.

The Confederate Congress assembled at Rich, mond on Monday last, and on that day he sent in bis message. Davis opens up with the startling declara tion that the campaign of 1861 has been favora ble to the Confederacy. They have recovered ground in Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, &.c. In Louisiana he says the dominion ot the United States is reduced to the country com manded by the fleet, and in Arkansas to "a few for'jfled posts." But he omits to mention the important consideration that what is so held by the fleet and the fortified posts Is of such importance as to give the United States the virtntl command of the whole territory, so that whenever it shall be the policy of the National Government to move troops into Arkansas and wesvrn Louisiana, they will be able to repos sess the country without a serious contest. This little matter in the military way Mr. Davis finds it convenient to leave out of his account. In reciting his successes, he also makes men tion of Price's invasion of Central Missouri, to enable the people ot that State to strike a blow tor ''their liberation." Well, they did strike tnat blow for "liberation," bat it was "libera tion" from the tender mercies of Price's as sassins and robbers, and the effect of the "blow" was to hurl Price headlong from Mis souri, with the loss of all his artillery and wagt.a trains, and witn his liberating army dlsoipnnized into a fugitive rabble. Davis discusses Atlanta. He says the cap ture ot that place by the Union army has had no ad ? erse "influence on the spirit or the cour age" the Confederacy. What he may mean by adverse influence, we of coqrse are unable to say; but the capture of Atlanta had the ef fect to create wider spread discontent at the South, and eli-eit numerous letters looking to a termination of the war and reconstruction of the Union from statesmen of the highest po sition in the "Confederacy." This feeling spread from Georgia to South Carolina on the one side, and to Alabama on the other, and to counteract it a convention of the Governors of the States was necessary, and was held at Au gusta. It had the effect in Alabama to prevent tbe Legislature from voting a single dollar, or ti king a single step to prolong the war in that State. It likewise compelled Davis himself to make a pilgrimage to Georgia to correct its "influence," where he admitted the loss of At lantn to be a deplorable event, and where it afler'-d his temper to such an extent that he fell ? to Cursing like a very drab," pious as he preimds to be. It also had sufficient inilu en<. r0 cause Gov. Brown to call the Georgia mi: . from the service of Hood in ntter dis gut [f these are not adverse influences r?n the spirit and courage of the Confederacy, Jeff, mus. iiave a very peculiar notion Of idver? sity H- i -ien goes on to say that "Sherman has fceei i impelled to withdraw on the line of his ad' t.ce," and he indulges in a nice bit of gi ation over this purely imaginary result. 1 us time they are probably somewhat bet tei . ormed at Richmond of the direction in vi ru Sherman has "withdrawn," and what a .-??? t ling commentary will his Dresent where at be upon this piece of falsehood in the ir ;e. ' mg disposed of these unpleasant subjects, D. ? ? then turns to his unhappy " foreign re ins." Here he relieves himself by venting a .t-1 at Christendom in general and per r ? - England in particular. ? m t;e rebel finances. Davis, after remarking tb ? ere is nothing discouraging in the state ot ur.. ecuniosityin which rebeldom is plunged Uj> i. the eyes, immediately goes off into a 1hiu> i ation over the worthless condition of the c uticy. He says that the chief difficulty lies ii "want ot faith in its ultimate redemp ti- ? '* Davis proposes to correct this popular int r-lity by "pledging the faith" of the Con te< racy against any further "taxation" of nt t. This is only another way of calling for a ledge against repudiation; for the late ?m- * of thirty, three per cent, of their treasury nc t- in circulation was repudiation to that ext- i.t. J e urges universal conscription, and says: "Tiie exemption from military duty now ac corded by law to all persons engaged in certain specified pursuits or professions, is shown by experience to be unwise: nor is it believed to be defensible in theory. The defense of home, home, family, and country is universally rec ognized as the paramount political duty of every member of society; and in a form of gov ernment like ours, where each citizen enjoys an equality of rights and privileges, nothing can be more invidious than an unequal distri bution of duties and obligations." In regard to the propoaed arming of slaves, Davis professes to be against the measure, for reasons that he sets forth, hut really because the bare mention of it has already called forth a storm of opposition from all quarters of the South. He consequently submits to bis Con gress a modified proposition. He suggests that forty thousand slaves should be taken as pioneers and engineer laborers; that it will be necessary to hold these for considerable lengths of time; that the Confederacy should, therefore, buy these slaves, and having thus acaulred a right of "property" in them, shontd then consider them as ''persons," and offer them their liberty as a reward for their fideli ty. It is queried whether they shall be sot free at the commencement ot their military service as an Inducement to be faithful, or whether they shall be held In slavery until the end, and then emancipated as a reward. He inclines to the latter plan. ... A ,, , But this proposition will fall in the rebel Congress, where the slareholdlng Interest is largely in the ascendant. It has already raised a storm of opposition. It is held to be a worse form of "abolition," and a more flagrant viola tion of State rights than anythingevar proposed by President Lincoln. The Richmond Whig has already pounced upon this part of the message with savage seventy. On ttie question of peace Jeff is lugubrious. He cays; "The disposition of this Government for a peaceful solution ot the issues which the ene my has referred to the abttrament of arms has been too often manifested, and Is too well known, to need new assuranoes. Bat while it is true that individuals and parties ia the United S ates have indicated a desire to substi tute reason lor force, and by negotiation to stop the farther sacrifice of bumaa life, and to ar rest tlve calamities whioft bow an lot both coon tries, authorities who control ibe Oav?rn ment of our enemies have too ott*n &nd too clenrlv express* d their resolution to mnke no pence except on term* of oar unconditional ?tib tnission aud degradation, to leave ? anv hop# of ihe ceMauon of DoHilitlM until the dilution of their ability to conqner us is dispell.

When that contingency shnll happen. theGov ernment to which is confided the tre*ty-m\ uin? rower can be at no loss for means adapted to accomplish so desirable an end.
