F. J. .MOJSES, Jr. jSou'tv. January 24 2 * GEN. M CLELLAN S PLAN OF THE WAR?ITS IMME- | | DIATE SUCCESS CERTAIN. The New York Times contains a letter from j Washington, dated the 12th inst., written by a ( person who speaks from the highest possible authoiitv. rolatinnr to fill! nlnns off-Inn \l/.f1l/.l_ Ian, from which we make the following extract : Your suggestions to attack Manassas, even at the risk of defeat, on the ground that we ; had better be beaten, than rot to pieces, is not like your usual good sense. Any military man would tell you that to hurl our forces against those strong entrenchments would be sheer madness. Jhit (Jen. McClellan has them caught in their own trap. They arc like a fox in a burrow with one hole, where they must soon be forced out, and then (Jen. Me-i 1 dollan will tall upon them like a thunderbolt. The public will not then complain of his want ! of energy. 1 tell you it will be so fearful as to have wailing and mourning from every South- ! ern household. Knowing what 1 do, and have ' but thus barely hinted at as the grand plan of the canpaign, I repeat, the rebels are doomed, and secession will never again raise its hydra i head in the land. The folds of the giant con-1 i ctrictor are now tightening around ih<? wdml- i lion, and the coming month will gee it crushed j out completely and forever. Again I say, j look out lor a "short war and a desperate one." What is Going to he I)onk "this Montii." ?The following extract from a letter received | by one of our prominent citizens (says ! the N. Y. J'osl) comes from a responsible j source, and hints certain movements said to be impending: Washington, Jan. 12.?My Dear Sir: * * ; * The night of rebellion has passed, > and the dawn is about breaking, lioforc the ! present month has gone these things will sure-) ly come to pass : (Jen. Ilalledljfwith the great llotilla, and an army of one hundred thousand strong, will sweep like an avalaneh down the Mississippi, where they will be joined hv (Jen* 1 hitler in New Orleans and'mobile. (Jon. Knell with nearly or (piitc the same force, will march into Tennessee, capture Nashville, and co-operatc w ith the Vnion forces in a manner and direction it. would not be politic now to point out. Generals Koseneranz ;iud Kelly will advance from Western Virginia, and do their share, in harmony with the general plan. General:* ?>anl:s and Stone will move, in eonjunction w ith the rest from tho Upper 1'otomac. General ihirnsidc will do his appointed work. General Sherman will explain by deeds, not words, his inaction. General McClcllan will force the rats from their holes at Manassas, attack them at throe points at once, and fulfil his modest pledge that the war will be "short, but desperate." The Oai'TTki: ok Ceuer Kk\s.?Of the reported occupation of Coder Keys by the enemy, the Tallahassee JYvwn says: The Coventor received a despatch on Saturday slating that Ceder Keys had been captured and probably burnt by the Federals. The despatch is based upon the statement of passengers on the train running from Coder Keys to l Yrnandina on Friday, who reported some Federal steamers coining up to Coder Keys, ami alter the train left a largo smoke was seen. It is supposed by some that the smoke was oc_ casioncd by the burning of some of our boats tiiat weio loaded with rosin, Arc., and that the people of Ceder Keys tired them to keep them from falling in the hands of the enemy. The report needs confirmation. At the late session of the Mississippi Legislature, a law was passed subjecting any slaveholder to a fine, of not less than ?200 nor more than ?1000, who sutlers his slaves to he quartered at any distance over one mile from the residence of the master; unless an overseer or other able bodied white man shall be kept with them. i McClellax Endorses the Brutal policy ok Jim Lane.?Gen. Lane has, in several interviews with the President, discussed his plans, and in conversation with McClcllan, the Com- ? mander-in-Chicf, thus addressed him : "Suppose you find no Union sentiment whatever where you go ?" "Then", replied Lane, "I will take good care to leave 110 rebel scnteinent behind inc. If Missouri, Arkansas, and xl . -u l* - me inuian country win not cotne peaceably under tlic laws of the Government, mv plan is to make them a wilderness. I will give the traitors twenty four hours to choose between exile and death.?Sir, if I can't do better, I will kill off the white traitors, and give their lands to the loyal black men !" The friends of Lane assert tnat, upon hearing this reply, McClcllan laughed heartily, and said : "You must work out your own plans. Go j-our way and sec to it that no rebel sets his foot in Kansas." T'lJ WTP \ Vll TilU Til fif't mp Tlx-. - Alig JJULUli Rouge (La.) Advocate, says: "A French gentleman, lately arrived from Talis, had a conversation just before he left with Judge Rest, one of the Commissioners of the Confederate States, who informed him that the blockade could not continue much longer. All the continental powers express themselves favorable to our success. A large number of armed vessels of the best and latest construction, would soon enter the service of the Confederate States; their condemnation l>y their previous owners being due to the nceccssily of employing them in opening the way to cotton and tobacco?Col. llarvey Brown. U. S. army, being judge, their iron sides and rifled guns will enable them to open a cotton porter two with great ease, Kentucky.?A late number of the Memphis Appeal contains an encouraging article on the situation in Kentucky. The whole force of the enemy under Gen. Buell, in that department, does not exceed one hundred and ten thousand men. Against this army, says the .\ppiu1y we are enable to state, upon sat" isfactory data, that the Confederate Government can bring a force of between ninety and a hundred thousand men, all of whom arc now mtilnv nrmc in lv'nttUinl-v The enemy's light boat, stationed near the "Middle Ground" in place of Capo Henry Light, went ashore on the J Measure House beach on Friday morning last. Our Pickets nabbed her, of course, securing seven prisoners, with a fine rifled cannon, 400 gallons of oil, about sixty days provisions, and seven muskets. Destruction of St. Louis.?The unholv war which the North is waging against the Soutli has effected St. Louid^tc a stroke of palsy. More than sixty thousand inhabitants have left that city w ithin a year, an immense number of houses and stores arc vacant, and all buisncss, except Government contract is at ' a. a dead stand. Marriage of a Granddaughter of Daniel Boone.?Capt. Elmore Otis, of the U. S. of America, and Miss Boone, daughter of Maj. A. G. Boone, Indian Agent, and granddaughter of "Gen. Boone, backwoodsman of Kentucky," as Byran calls him, were married at Fort Wise, Colorado Territory, recently. Notice. rIMIIS TS TO CAUTION ALL PERSONS FROM I trading for a Note eriven to Mr. M. K.
