A telegraph dispatch to day tells us that Jeff Davis says he will hang Colonel Cor coran and other Federal prisoners now in the South, if the Missouri bridge-burners are shot. Jeff, proposes a game of tit for tat. We shall see who gets the last "tag." A Bankrupt Law. or in Congress as yet about a general bankrupt -act, there appears to be a general belief that such a law will be enacted daring the pres ent session of Congress. The passago of such a law is earnestly advocated by many as the only effectual meana of relief in the present prostration of trade and credit. If the ex periment of a universal bankrupt 'system is to be tried for the third time, it is to be hoped that it may be attended with better success, so far as the substantial interests of the country are concerned, than was the case ander the act of 1800 or 1841. The great danger in regard to all insolvent laws is not so much in the theory on which they pro ceed as in their practical administration. They are too apt to operate as mere instru ments for extinguishing debts without pay ment. John Randolph said that a bank rupt's estate in the hands of an assignee was "like a lump of butter in a dog's mouth," and most creditors are painfully familiar with illustrations in their own experience of the truth of this homely but forcible remark. Among the thousands who availed them selves of the bankrupt act of 1811, few were able to escape the taint which the mode of its administration left upon the recipients of its benefits, and it was repealed without an attempt to improve it. It is therefore a prime necessity that far ther legislation in this direction should be approached with caution, and should not be made to subserve the exclusive interests of any particular class. No bankrupt act should be passed, unless just and fair to all whose interests may be affected by it, and which can remain on the statute book with out disgracing our legislation. Wehaveseen it stated that a committee of leading merchants of some of the Eastern cities have gone bo far as to have prepared by an eminent lawyer a bill which tbey pro pose to urge upon the attention of Congress. This act is said to embrace the best features of the existing bankrupt systems of France and England, and of the Insolvent system of the State of Massachusetts. It accords with the law of 1841 in providing for voluntary and involuntary bankruptcy, and in being re trospective as well as prospective in its op erations. It differs essentially, however, in many respects, particularly in those which relate to the safe-keeping of the bankrupt's estate, and to the action of creditors in superintend ing the proceedings for winding it up in their various stages. The creditors, being the real parties in interest, should have the responsibility and the right of choosing the assignee who is to collect and distribute the property of th debtor; the proposed law gives them this ripht in all cases, and also provides for the closing up of the estate at the option of three-fourths in value of the creditors, by trustees, under the inspection of a committee, In lieu of the more formal proceedings In bankruptcy. The eredi'ors who prove their claims share pro rata in the distribution, and the debtor is entitled to an absolute discbarge, except as to debt in volving a breach of trust, upon the surrender of all his property and complying with the provisions of the law. Light Wanted. In A letter from Mill Spring (and which is written by a gentleman known to the New York Evening Pott), it is stated that when the wounded Mississippian found themselves kindly treated by our officers and men, they xpreased their surprise, and declared that bad they known we would treat them thus. they would not bav fought against the Union. One of th writers from Port Royal recently related that the poor rebel Yallan digham, who died on our bands there, at first refused to drink water banded him, till it was first tasted by oar men, nnder tb im pression that the Yankees were bent on poisoning all their prisoners. It is Almost incredible, bat there is every reason to be Lev that th rebel leaders biv really com' milled th atrocity of spreading such dela tion! as this among the Ignorant neople of th South. They need a good deal of light down there. And it will never reach them till it is brought by tb Union Armies. How needful th presence of ear soldier is ia th Southern Stat, is perhaps further shown by an anec dote of the Hattera North Carolinians w find in tb New Bedford Mercury: "Tbey bav ofun been urged to join our standard, and take np arms ia defend of their home. It was oaly the other day that a ship captain asked a lad from th country which sid nil fattier had takes in the quar rel. Tb youth artlessly replied that 'hi father bad not made up his mind; ht wanted h IH ftkt Ftitralt wtrt throng.' " Retrenchment in Ohio. Senator Welsh, from th Standing Com mute on Retrenchment, to whom was re ferred that portion of tb Governor's Inan gural Address relating to local taxation, has mad a highly important report, looking to a radical change in th power of local taxa tion. Th report was accompanied with an exhibit of the local taxes assessed tor 1861, with the proposed reduction on each object of assessment. Th report is a step in the right direction. Tb following is the basis of the reduotion proposed by the Committee: Seduction An'l ef Assessment lor year imi. proposed, redact n County levy fl,3.1,lt0 per cent. f.111 MS Bib'ge... 32,l"0 60 per oent.

The average reduction recommended is about 41 per cent. The Difficulties of a Rebel Envoy. A Southern agent, writing from England to the Richmond Enquirer, describes many of tb difficulties that he has encountered abroad. He tried to promote shipments of manufactures to the Southern ports, with a promise of one hundred per cent, profit, but the sturdy manufacturers said ten per cent, and no risk is a better business than on hundred per cent, and extreme risk. Noth ing was accomplished. He adds that be ha' some doubts whether th foreign Powers will recognize the Confederacy, and assigns th following reasons: 1st. Both England and France are strongly conservative, and both possess important colonial possessions, and they do not like to encourage revolts. 2d. A prevalent impression that th North and South would soon come together again if separated. 3d. A fear that, in case of re cognition, the North would undertake the conquest of the South. 4th. The determina tion of England to rely hereafter upon her own sources of snpply for cotton. 5th. The determined anti-slavery feeling among the people of both nations. Some, or all these cases nnited, be says, will long delay the much-hoped-for foreign intervention. Two Men Killed by One Bullet. Barney Grogan, of the Thirteenth Penn sylvania Regiment, has been tried for the murder of two men. In a quarrel with a private of the same regiment, named Young, Gorgan shot Young through the head; and the same ball also killed Lysander Robb, who was on guard ninety yards distant, and was struck in the breast What has become of the case of the two Pennsylvania Captains, who, in a drunken quarrel, originating in A disreputable house, fired at General Montgomery, who was en deavoring to quell the disturbance. Private soldiers have been shot for desertion and sleeping while on guard. Let equal justice be administered to privates and officers. Cold Weather About Lake Superior. The Marquette Journal of January 20 says the thermometer was twenty degrees below zero, seven on the mountains four or five feet deep and about one foot deep on the Lake coast. Wolves had made their appearance in con siderable numbers on the mail route between Marquette and Bay de Noquette. A trapper was followed ten miles by about a dozen of the "varmints," and only escaped with his life by running at a two-forty pace and keep ing up a perpetual fire from his gun, until he reached a station on the route, when tbey stopped, turned and put off in the forest strain. The hunters complain bitterly of their villainous conduct in driving all the deer off, so that life this winter is without the spice of either buck fever or venison. Speech of S. Cox. A Washington letter-writer, in speaking of the late speech of Hon. S. S. Cox, in reply to Mr. Gurley, says : "The able and patriotic speech of Repre sentative Cox, in defense of General McClel lan against th Emancipation schemers, meets with the most unqualified approval of all true Union men. It is most assuredly certain that the combined attack of the radi cals against the General-in Chief is for no other purpose than to dethrone him from his position, and gratify their negro freeing pro pensities by elevating in bis stead General Fremont." A carg of coffin robbers have been de Vcttd at Weston, Somerset County, Eng land. The leader was the sexton of the church, and the party were accustomed to open vaults, break coffins with tools, cut out the lead lining, and take this lead with the coffin handles and plates, to sell as old iron at Bradlbrd. The wood of the coffin and the botes of its inmate were broken un and stowed away in a further corner of the vault This has been going on for over three years, and at least filty coffins, including those of soma of the prominent people of the neighbor hood noblemen and others have been thus outi Aged. What is the difference between outraging the bones of a nobleman and those of a pau per? A petition has been circulated in Detroit on the subject of fortifying the lake coast, which, according to the Advertiier, sets forth that there is not, at the present time, upon tbe nv hundred miles of frontier coast line, a single defense, nor any way of communi cation with the Upper Peninsular of Michi gan, except through the St. Mary's Falls Canal and the river. The Canadian Govern ment have built a military road from Toronto to St. Mary, which gives them the advantafie of communication with Lake Su perior by two rout, and in th event of a war with England, Lake Superior would easily fall into the enemy's hands. A bbilliaxt idea has just beta conceived among tbe nabobs of New York, three of whom appeared on Sunday at a church on tb Fifth avenue, having their front teeth set with diamonds! Such luminosity was visible when th trio opened their precious mouths, thatth "vulgar peeple" followed them horn in itariag wonder. Th old adage of "pearl before swine" was well illustrated. Gbocmd Hoo's Dat. Sunday last was Ground-Hog's Day. Tradition informs us that if be sees hi shadow on th ground, on th second day bf February, he will return to his hole to doc away the six weeks of cold weather certain to follow. If th ground-hog emerged from hi biding place on that day bis "shadowy" reflections must bav induced bim to return "doable quick." - A citt paper complains that tb Washing ton correspondent of a New York paper is "making Mrs, Lincoln ridiculous." Bless Jour simp! heart, nobody ean make her ridiculous exoept herself; and from what w read of her doings, ah seems to hav a peculiar aptitude for that same. Bom beads become giddy with sudden and unexpected elevation. Continental Money a Legal Tender. Th Washington Intelligent shows that Con greet, in 1777, did not legallz contl nental money, and make it a Iawfal tender for th payment of debts, but only reoom mended th several Legislature! to adopt measures to that effect Th issues of con tinental paper made by Congress from May 10, 1775, in a few months reached $300,000, 000, and depreciated until they became en tirely . valueless, notwithstanding th pas sage, by th States, of laws making the notes a legal (ender. Legislation to that affect was perfected in Connecticut in October, 1776, in Massachusetts in December, in Rhode Islaid in July, in New Jersey in Au gust, 1776, and in Pennsylvania in January, in Delaware in February, in Maryland in April, and in Virginia in May, 1777. It is proper, however, to not that the circum stances of those days were very different from those that govern now, and that the merely historical facts mentioned above do not suggest the idea that our Treasury-notes will be subject to any similar depreciation. Indeed, with judicious taxation, and th prompt payment of th interest in specie, tbey can not depreciate. The Male Trade in Cincinnati. A communication in a morning paper pro pounds a query which would seem to be worthy of the attention of the proper au thority in the purchasing department of th Government: "I would thank him ('Blue Grass') to tell me and other suftVers who have a few mules and horses to sell, how it is that a few cer tain men can sell any kind of a mule or horse to the Government after they have been re jected to other persons, and the same in spector can pass tnem with impunity for A certain man or two on Fifth street The Male Trade in Cincinnati. " RED TAPE." Ladies will be interested to learn that when the Secunder Begum of Bhopal was invested with tbe order of the Star of India, she wore a green kinkhob tunic, tight kink hob pants, and a heavy cloth of gold round her shoulders and head, with a large gold brooch pinning it At the neck, aud another at the waist, leaving the countenance quite open. She had no other ornaments about her person, save a pair of massive gold ank lets on her feet, and was the only one of the knights Tect who wore gloves. What is "kinkbob?" Could not some enterprising nwdieU introduce "kinkhob" to American ladies, who bave already corn cob silks, and would undoubtedly look with favor on kink hob pants. Any way, "kinkbob" would be a new fashionable kink, if nothing else. Tns rebels cling with the pertinacity of drowning men to the hope of recognition by European powers, and it is evidently their main stay, as A speedy realization of their desires is constantly held up before the peo ple to encourage tbem. The Memphis Appeal closes an article on the enlistment question, with it as a final inducement for the soldiers to re-enlist, remarking: "All Europe, as is acknowledged by the organ of tbe British party in power tbe London Pott looks upon our subjugation as a 'tried and proved impossibility" The foreign complications and troubles of the enemy are thickening, and we are daily looking for the intelligence of our national recognition by foreign powers." Privats advices, received from the agents of tbe Government in England, state that the rebel Commissioners, and other friends of the Jeff. Davis Government in Europe, are very much discouraged with tbe result of tbe Trent affair, and that they are spending money very freely to create a public senti ment in England favorable to a speedy re cognition of the so called Southern Confed eracy. Ons or the letters found in Zollicoffer's den, written by a prominent East Tennes seean, has the following: "The Union Party in East Tennessee is quiet at this time, and some think forever crushed, but I am of a different opinion. We bave large numbers of Lincolnites among us yet, who are only awaiting a safe opportunity to join their Northers frierdB" Ir tbi patriots of this country fought like tbe rebels, the contest would be quick and decisive. Tbe rebels fight with the determi nation of despair, and that determination in fuses energy into their commanders, ferocity into their soldiers, and a spirit of unity into their counsels. Tbe ship Union, with a large cargo of ten, arrived at New York last week. Her papers were dated previous to August 5, thus saving to the shippers two hundred thousand dol lars in duties, which, nevertheless, the dealers will tbink it their duty to charge on tbe consumers. It was stated in the House of Representa tives on Thursday that contracts for tbe supply of arms to the amount of $38,000,000 were still out and in the bands of "middle men" and "snatchers," and that they were hawked about the streets. -mi reason wny tb rebels nave refuted to receive and distribute the clothing sent to I tb Northern soldiers who are prisoners at tbe Sooth is that tbe packages were not ad dressed to "Tbe Confederate States." Five tteamthipj arrived at New York on Satuiday with the largest cargoes (says th Evening Pott) ever brought to that port making a busy day at the Custom house. A Wabniso A reepectable farmer and Church-goer of East Haven, at the com mencement of the year, caused his paper to be discontinued as a measure of eeonomy. As a natural consequence he lost his reckon ing, and last Sunday morning commenced a vigorous attack upon hit wood pile, fully believing it was Saturday. He did not dis cover his mistake till he saw his neiirhh ra passing for church, when he beoame so shocked at bis involuntary desecration of th Sabbath that he immediately expressed a determination to renew his subscription without delay. In tbe United States Senate, on th 29th nit, Mr. Baulsbury, of Delaware, subml'ted a petition from citizens of the Stat of Illi nois, praying Congress not to pass an act to abolieh slavery in the District of Columbia, and asking for tb expu'sion of members who sympathize with such an act. It also asks that tb title of General may be, by law. taken away from John O. Fremont aad that his incapacity, frauds and corruption, while in tb Western Department, may be fully exposed.

Mr. Seward's order in relation to the City Jail, issued to tb Marshal of the Distriot, gives great satisfaction to nearly all the cit ltentof Washington, with, perhaps, the ex ception of a few slave-owners, who have been in tb habit of sending their slaves to the jail whenever it was convenient, and paying the Marshal therefor thirty seven and a half cents per dayr which usually left a profit of twenty-five cents. Tb order of the Secre tary of Stats will abate th worst olass of abuses connected with tbe jail, and, with tb farther legislation which Congress will en act, will direst this notorious institution of half it horrors. SECRETARY STANTON. The clear, positive and practical "orders" issued by Secretary Stanton, give pleasing assuranoe that he is neither an idle theorist, a puppet In the hands of contractors, or the mere clerk of regular officers. He seems to clearly understand tbe true spirit of those who would preserve the Government from tbe assaults of the rebels, and to display an honest, vigorous manhood, a firmness of nerve and a comprehensive statesmanship that will soon make him not only the leader of the Cabinet, but A favorite with the people. Venders of spavined horses or con demned fire-arms fabricants of shoddy uni forms or shoes with pasteboard soles swind ling railroad officials or political beggars of commissions all can now reckon that their "occupation's gone." Tb new Secretary will defeat all these rascals in their warfare against the Treasury, and it is also to be hoped that he will organize victory for our troops. A QUEER MISTAKE. In making up the estimates of the Govern ment, it it said that an oversight which had been previously made, of nearly fifty mil lions of dollars for contracts, was discovered. CONTRACTORS. The contractors from 'the Nnrth-weifavn States are a truculent-looking set, with im mense hats and beards, and wearing a suffi cient stock of chains, breat-pins and finger rings tosetupagiftenterprise with. Tbel'ean sylvania Treasury-bleeders are more sub- auea in tneir manner, and those from New York and Boston are often "thorough-bred gentlemen," yet none the less keen at driv ing a bargain, or making the most of their contracts. A TELEGRAPH AROUND THE WORLD. Hon. Hilton S. Latham, one of the most labo rious and active of all the risinor statesmen of the day, will shortly introduce a bill for the purpose of establishing a line wedding the United States to the Russian Empire, which, when completed, will almost encir cle the globe with the electric wire. Ha will sustain it in an elaborate and eloquent report THE TAX BILL. It is understood that the tax bill ia now being perfected in its details by the Commit tee on Ways and Means. It proposes a moderate rate of taxation upon most of the articles ef necessity and consumption, with higher rates on distilled liquors, aud other articles of luxury, on legacies and probates, on passengers by railroads and other convey ances, on newspapers, and telegraphic mes sages. From these sources taken in connec tion with the tariff on imports, it is confi dently expected, after the most careful inves tigation, that tbe Government will derive an annual revenue of at least $150,000,000. This tax-bill will give to the United States bonds a sure specie-paying security. The Commit tee hav also considered the subject of a national banking law, which will require the deposits of the United States stocks as security for the bank-notes that are circulated as currency. All quiet along th lines wet and muddy into the bargain. Opinion Abroad. Tbe war party abroad are doing their ut most to recover from tbe signal defeat they bave suffered in tbe Trent case, and to avert the torrent of indignation which are heaped upon tbem trom all parts of the continent What renders them particularly open to re proach is that they have been convicted of concealing Mr. Seward's dispatch of the 30th of November, which, it ithad been published, would have dissipated all doubts of the peaceable disposition of this Government, end of its entire willingness to settle the Trent case in the most amicable manner. That dispatch was sent to Mr. Adams early in December; we have his own words that it was read to Earl Russell; and yet for nearly a month thereafter the most vigorous warlike preparations were prosecuted, and tbe people, not only of England, but of the Continent, allowed to remain, in the most painful suspense. One of the leading French journals, Li Tempt, describes ibesituation perfectly wben it suys : "Tbe truth is now as clear as dy that all Europe has been mystified, in gross ond in detail, during two months. What was the meaning of tbis bit of theatrical dis play? Why has England caused such im mense armaments with such unprecedented tiisoatch, when it was proper in tbe first place to await some indication of tbe designs of the Washington Cabinet; and still more proper, in the second place, to cease arming after tbe rteeipl of Mr. Seward's conciliatory dispatch? Nothing could be lost by waiting, since tbe piisoners were not likely to De spirited away." Tbe same paper adds that "public opinion in England wi.l now react violently again t th excitement raised against tbe Uuited States. Lord Palmerstoa will be prohibited more than ever from re cognizing tb independaoce of the slave State. We should advice oar own journals, which have followed in the train of England, to be silent hereafter." ffnt York Pott. Th London correspondent of the New York Trtbune writes on the 11th January: One of tb yellow-plushes, Palmeraton's private MoititeurVh Morning Pott finds itself arraigned on a most nglj charge from th American papers.

Th Washington correspondent of th Balti more Sun remark : 1 i Several military men bay predicted, and A prominent civilian Is said to hav wagered, that within thirty days from tbis time the Confederates will hav abandoned their posi tion at and near Manatsas. The opinion is based upon expected military operations in Kentucky and North Carolina, whereby com munication between Virginiaand th South am and South-western States is to be cut off. The condition of the roads in the West and tbe adverse weather in North Carolina waters forbid immediate movements. Gen eral Bnel's army numbers about 115.000 men of all arms, and is said to be in a high state of discipline, and ready and eager for active service. Car a Hcbbard Dpi a Wife's Littib? There was a curious c&s on trial at th U. S. District Court in Albany last week. A man and his wife living in th western part of the State bad separated by mutual con sent. During this period the butband opened a letter written to bis wife. He was arrested for this at her instigation several months since, and the trial took place last week. The Jury brought him in guilty. The Judge sentenced him to twenty-fonr hoars' im prisonment in the County Jail, and a fine of $10. Impobtanci of Cab Writiwo. John McOlure.au eminent banker in New York, has just been taught the importance of cross ing bis Li by an impressive lesson.
