The Vessel and Cargo fall into tiie Hands of the Enemy.?Wo get tlic following from tlic New Orleans Delta : It will be recollected that the daily papers of Saturday last reported that the steamship Calhoun, which had run the blockade to llavanna, and was returning to New Orleans, was attacked one week ago to day, by the blockading squadron; and, becoming disabled by an accident to her machinery, was abandoned by her crew, alter first setting her on fire. Several days having elapsed since the parties leaving her came up to the city, ami other, and very different, accounts have trans pired. We are told that an Englishman, who had trunks and other valuables on hoard, went down from the fort to see the Federal commander, and was allowed to identity and take away his property, the Calhoun having been taken possession of by the enemy, and found to be in excellent condition and unhurt. Her cargo, consisting in part of forty tons of gunpowder, a large quantity of rifles and other munitions of war, besides articles of the value of some 00,000 they were discharging, * pre punitory to the mounting guns on her, and putting her at once upon duty. The Federal commander, we arc told, said that the Calhoun had two hours the start of him, and was unnc'ccssrrilj abandoned. We have otherwise been informed that one of the crew says that the vessel which captured the Calhoun was a mere schooner, and that as the latter reached her prize it was made to tow her oil to her consorts. lie was also re i ported to have said that the crew were cautioned on the way v.p to say nothing about the abandonment of the steamer. The taking of the Calhoun is equal to the loss of a battle* and we hope that an examination equivalent to that by a court of inquiry may be made into the matter. Somebody is certainly to blame if half of what is said is true. ? Ekjiit Childkkx at a Biktii.?From a letter in the New York Tribune, we extract the ollowing stupendous lie : On the 23d of August, Mrs. Timothy Bradico, of Trumbull county, Ohio, gave birth to eight children?three boys and five girls. They arc all living, and are healthy, but quite small. Mr. B's family is increasing fast. He was married six years ago to Eunice Mowcry, who weighed 273 pounds on the day of her marriage. She has given birth to two pair of twins, and now eight more, making twelve children in six years. It seems strange, but nevertheless is true. Mrs. )>. was a twin of three, her mother and father both being twins, and her grand mother the mother of five pair of twins. Mrs. I>. has named her boys after noted and distinguished men: one after the Hon. J. II. Giddings, who has given her a splendid gold medal; one after the ttev. lion. Eljiah Camplairi, who gave her a deed of fifty acres of land ; and the other aftei Jas. Johnson, who gave her a cow. Gen. Beauregard's New Position.?The Petersburg (Ya) tixpri&Sy in its issue ot' Saturday, says the Charleston Afcrcurt/ of the 3d inst., professes to have the most reliable authority for stating that this distinguished ofliocr has been assigned to the command of our forces in New Orleans. It says: A despatch was received in this city Thursday night, by a military gentleman of high position, from Manassas, signed by Gen. 1). announcing this fact. Since it is known that he has been transferred from the Army of the Potomac, there can be no impropriety in stating that New Orleans will be the scene of his Tutnrc operations, and we, therefore, do not hesitate to give it publicity in these columns. The Yankees twenty thousand strong, marchel out of Paducall the other day, and then marched back again ! -Nashville Patriot, | 21th inst. The ILaueas Corpus in tiie South?An | Important Decp-ion.?Military commander* Laving been greatly annoyed by the service of writs ot habeas corpus in numerous instances a late opinion of the Judge of the Confederate Court at Knoxville w ill settle the question. The Register states that Judge Humphreys decided, in his charge to the grand jury, that , any one professing allegiance to the U. S., ,s an alien enemy, and not a citizen, and therehue not entitled to the benefit of the act of habeas corpus?a right belonging only to citizens. This decision will relieve the military commandants of considerable annoyance in future. From Gen. Price's Army.?Mr. J. T. Thornton, just from Price's army, at Springfield, Missouri, has arrived in this city, and reports the General well, and his command in good condition?well fed* well clothed and contented in all, save one thing, viz: the possibility of their beloved and well tried command ! er being placed in a subordinate condition. To this they will not consent, and Van Dorn's ! appointment is received by tlicin with unqualified dissatisfaction. Price has now about 18,000 men, and his force is steadily incrcasing. [ A', O. Crescent, January 27, Salt.?From all indications we arc inclined to think that the "great scarcity1' of salt is nearly "played out," as hundreds of persons, in different sections, are already energetically | engaged in its manufacture. We received i yesterday, from a member of the Mobile Cadets, who is on his return from Mobile, after a short furlough, to join his company at Norfolk, a j sample of tine and beautiful white table salt, made at the Salt Wells, Clarke county, Ala.t O 11/1 n I'A m ^VvVtYlA/1 tlmt ill A lif nt*n ilt <?iiv4 nv niv iiiiuiuivu lutib luv jnuiiLCia tuci U manufacture upwards of a thousand bushels daily.?Mercury of the Is* inst. The Rank of General.?A correspondent, writing from Elizabeth City N. C., asks "what is the highest rank in the Confederate army? whether simply General or Major-General ?" The highest rank in the regular army is that of "General.'' The act of Congress provides for live Generals, who have, we believe, been appointed to rank in the order in which they are named, viz: Gens. Cooper, Albert Sidney Johnson, Lee, Joseph E. Johnson, and Beauregard. There can, therefore, be no further appointments except through an amendment of the law by Congress.

Of course this word caused a general stampede, and Waggs took the best scat. The car soon moved off. In the midst of the indignation, the wag was questioned. "You said this car didnt go." "Well, it did'nt then, but it goes now." Of course the "sold" laughed o o and said Waggs was smart. A clergyman preached in Boston on Christmas Eve, a sermon on the end of the world, which he thought would take place between the years 1804 and 1808. That clergyman ought to be in favor of peace, for even if the Yankees should succeed in subjugating the South, they would not be able to pay the cxpenccs of the job before the time he lias fixed for closing the books. The Yankees Fortifying at Green River. ?Wc learn from a reliable source that the cowardly Yankees, instead of making their long promised forward movement, have begun the erection of fortifications on the South bank of Green river. They wish to provide a place where they may escape tho fury of Buckner's "ingins." [Louisville (A'y.)
