ALABAMA. IVortlii'i'ii ItomH. The .Vow York World snyg, "it ii quite time that the pnoplo of the 2s'oTth understood that the news which mines to us from Confed erate source is the only news, that they can be sure is true. Two thousand live hundred bales of cotton arrived at New York from Liverpool. The celebrated racers Panic, Hen West, I'lank Cheatham, I'.ehemoth.and a three-year old Gleneoe, have arrived at "ew York from .New Orleans. All these. Una animals were bought under a sale of confiscated good', tor (leorgii Wilkes, editor of the spirit of the Tirns. The Yankeo Turcbin, known for his atroci ties, who was tried by court martial and dis missed the service, has been rewarded for bis vandalism by Lincoln, by the appoiutment of Urigadier tienoral under Kosecraiis. The formation of negro regiments is pro-gre-eing in Memphis. Two regiments are organizing, the principal strength being de rived from contrabands who reach the city and are forced to enter the service. (Jen. Cooper, commandant of Camp Chase, near Columbus, Ohio, died on the 2Mb ult., aged about sixty years. Gen. C. served in the United States Senate and House of Kepresent aiives from .Pennsylvania, Kiid subsequently removed to Maryland, whence ho was appoint ed thellrst Pirigadier General after the break ing out of the rebellion. The steamboats Lovell, Propeller, and Sax onia, have been captured and burnt by the Confederates on tlm Cumberland river, tifU.eu miles above C'larksrilhi. The Yankee steamer Sumter, with a subma rine battery in tow, and other things intended for the attack on Charleston, met with an ac cident, at sen, which caused her to return to New York, and the loss of the battery Alliga tor. Lincoln and his Cabinet, after giving the subject much deliberation, have decided n A to grant letters of marque and reprint! under the late law of Congress. In their stead it is un derstood that all vessels lit ted out by private parties for the purport of capturing rebel pi rates, w ill be duly commissioned in tlio navy, and allowed to go on their mission, Amontr some advices wo get from "Washing ton is u word about Lincoln and his worthy confrere, Soward. ' l.'neasy is the head that wears a crown'' is exemplified in the habits of Lincoln. Squads of armed men and bristling bayonets guard his bouse day and night, and l.o betrays a fear and uneasiness In his very looks, lie rarely appears in public, and when he does is shut out from view by the tiles of armed cavalrymen, that ride at his side. Im mediately on the adjournment of C'ongre.-s he moved his quarters out to tho Soldier's Home, where ho is surrounded by a utrong military force who are encamped there, Jlere he passes most of his time, and dispatches his coiun.u :ih atiotis to the Capital by n.ecns of couriers. Tho.-e wdio seek his august presence i'nn gain inlmittiuee. only by passing through flies of soldiers wlio protect, bis majesty from tho iri-tru.-iuiis of " out-ide barbarians." Seward doctors the troubles and fears of his mind in a nmre ctlVvtive manner. Iln quaffs his nee tar, and drown- his sorrow in the cup. It is said in Washington that he has again relapsed into great intemperance, and that he keeps all tho time half intoxicated. The New York Herald of the T2th says: 'Gold wai again very active to-day. i:s might have been expected from the news from Yicks btirg and Charleston. Tt opened at MO mid closed, after many iluetuatioiis, at about l.'l. Tne condition of our military enterprises, the withdrawal from Yicksburg, and the accounts trom Charleston, coupled with the. rumors of diiiiculty with (I rout Britain, in consequence of the lining out of rebel privateers in Briti-h potts, are not calculated to inspire confidence in the ourtvMiey. !U,d uroquite likely to lead to fresh out hurts of speculation in the precious metal.

Lincoln's "Washington orcan savs "Ihn Charleston 'enterpri.-e' may be abandoned for a time, but etlbrts tu suppress the rebellion will go forward." Contracts for twelve more iron-elnds have been awarded, at prices ranging from :jSll,fHn) to .fluO.oiin. They are to "be' finished id six months. Tho Yankees will need them by that time. American silver is at a discount of ten per cent, in St. John, H. 15. Admiral "Wilkes has been troubling British vessels once more. If John Hull's 'spunk is not entirely gone this Federal officer stands a go. id chance b get into trouble again. Thero are about f0,000 bales of cotton in Memphis price U8 to 70 cents. The Chops. A Milledgeville correspondent of the Augusta Constitutionalist writes : 1 am pleased to bear cheering report of tho growing wheat, and of tho abundance of food in the country. Many members declare that there is a surplus of all kinds of food, except wheat, save in the upper part of the State. I am inclined to think there is much truth in this impression, and that thero is no occasion for the panic which holders are trying to get up on the wheat question. The disposition seems general to discourage the planting of cotton, and thus make doubly sure the supply of food. Tt would bo a paradox for a people, blessed ns wo are, with tho most bountiful soii on irtli, to be reduced to vassalago for want of food. There is no danger of such a result, and if every acre is put in food this spring in six months there will be sucu a disgorging of granaries; and warehouse as will rnako cn-grosr-ef, vampires, and all kindred traitor? weep. Prom ue Charleston Mercury. The Burning of Jacksonville, Fla. Yankee Account. A correspondent of tho New York Tri bune, writing lrom Jacksonville, Fla., .March 2S, gives n record of Yankeo arson and outrages porpetrnted iu that beautiful State, which exceeds in enor mity any of tho devilish deeds .which have heretofore reached us. It will be seen that these outrages were per petrated by the Cih Connecticut and bth Maine regiments, and that these demons have been brought to Port .Royal to participate in tho operations against Charleston and Savannah. Should a land fight occur at either place, and any members of tho regi ments specified be jcaptured, wo trust our officers will not lose sight of tho atrocities perpetrated by them in Flori da. Tho following is the Tribune's account : "Jacksonville is in ruins. That beau tiful city which has been for so many years tho favorite resort of invalids from tho .North, has to-day been burnt to the ground, and, what is sad to record, by tho soldiers of tho national army. Scarcely a mansion, a cottage, a negro hut or a warehouse remains. Tho long lines of magnificent oaks, gr ion and beautiful with tho thickest tbliago ; the orange groves perfuming the a'r with their blossoms, the syca mores, the old century plants adorning every garden ; the palmetto and bayo net trees, ever tropical in verdure; the rose and' tho jessamine all that at this season indeed, I might say through all seasons has made Jack sonville a little Eden, has been bin ned, and scorched, and crisped, if not en tirely consumed to ashes, by tho de vouring flames. "Yesterday the beautiful little cot tago used as the Catholic parsonage, together with the church, wns fired by some of the soldiers, and in a short time burned to the ground. Before the flames had fairly reached the church, the soldiers burst open the doors and commenced sucking it of everything of va'ue. Tho organ was in a moment lorn to .-trips, and almost every soldier who came out seemed1 to be celebrating the occasion by blowing through an organ pipe. ''J'o dav the same spec-fade lias been repeated, only upon a much rgraudor scale. There mu.-t have been some understanding among tho iucendario. with regard to the conflagration. , H o'clock the flames burst from several buildings in different purls of tlio city, and a later hour still more wero iired. The wind then rose to a stiff gale, and the torch of the incendiaries became unnecessary to increase the fire. The only mansions of any value left .stand ing, as we move down tho river, are tho elegant mansions of Col. Sander son and Judge Burritt, both rebels and scoundrels of the deepest dye. The negro troops took no i art whatever in the perpot ration of this vandalism. They hud nothing to do with it, and were, simply silent spectators of the splendid but sad spectacle. The if.h Connecticut charge it upon tho 8lh Maine, and the Sth Maine hurl it back unou the Glh Connecticut." Among tho most important and most neglected products of the coun try is the Chinese Sugar Cane. A small scope of land and a small amount of labor is enough to fatten pork and supply sirup plentifully for a large family. The cultivation in cane, of a given space of land, will not require over half tho labor that it would in cotton ; and about, double tho amount of money would be realized, even at present prices. .- Three New York regiments the 'iOth, Rsth, and ti-'id which b-ft New York two thousaud two hundred and fifty strong, now muster but. six hundred and twenty-two officers and men.
