Colored Cotton.?Ales. R. McKee, U.
S. Consul at .Panama, forwards some new specimens of cotton to Washington. In his letter he says: "I send you cottjn grown in Panama from the seed received from Wash ington. 1 also send you two specimens of cotton from Sierra Pino. The white* cotton Wi- taken from a tree seven inches in diame ter,'the top branches of which are about fif teen feet from the ground, and spread about twenty feet each way. "The colored cotton was taken from a simi lar tree. Cotton in that part of Pino is of five or six different colors. The trees are so full of cotton balls that you can scarcely see the leaf. They seldom have had rain here for the last 16 years. Pino is situated forty miles east of Paitn. Soil sandy, but very produc tive. Where there is water the soil is best.? The trees from which this cotton was taken, were planted, but never cultivated." Brig. General Edmnnd Kirby, of the 1st Artillery, died last night from wounds receiv ed at CIjancellorsville, at the residence cf Gen. fticketfcs, in Washington. The U. S. Secretary of War has ordered that all Confederate officers out on parole be placed under close arrest, and no more paroles are to be granted until further orders. The New York papers announce that a Court of Inquiry has been ordered to convene at Brooklyn on Monday next, for the purpose of investigating ccrtain charges preferred against Alban 0. Sumers, Chief Engineer and Inspector General of the iron-clad Monitors.? The charges are made by Admiral Dupont, and mainly consist of assertions alleged to have been made by Mr. Sumers at the dinner table of the steamer Arago, on his way home from the attack on Sumter, to the effect that the Monitors had not had a fair trial,?that they were in as good condition for action the day after the fight as they were on the previous morning,?and that Admiral Dupont was pre judiced against the vessels. He is also charg ed with having asserted that the commanders of the Monitors were anxious, to renew the fight, and with making false assertions and using disrespectful language towards Admiral Dupont. The Chattanooga Rebel of the 21st contains letters from Breckinridge in reply to the impu tation on hia character contained in the report of Bragg. The defence is a bitter answer to the reflections of Bragg against him. He closes by asking, at the earliest opportunity, a court of inquiry. lu the Pennsylvania Diocesan Episcopal Convention a resolution to admit the delegates oft.be St. Thomas (colored) Episcopal Church, was passed, after much discussion, by a vote ot 222 to 21.
