Tbe lending topic of discussion for the last few
days Is tbe Chief Justiceship. Hon. Montg Jtuury
Blair alleges that ho is sure of getting the ap
pointment. In the event of the failure of Gover
nor Cha.se to receive the appointment, Jude
Davis will probably get it. The President is
understood to hold that Maryland Is entitled to
be represented on tbe Bench. If be adheres to
that idea, Mr. Blair stands a pretty good chance
of being appointed Assoclute Justice.
The President's Message is in print, and will
be, in point of length, about the same as last
year. Tho President takes a very hopeful view
of the situation, both in regard to tlmncial and
military operations. He purposes that the ex
penses of the war be paid by direct taxation,
thereby maintaining our national credit.
He also advocates an amendment to the Con
stitution entirely abolishing slavery, and shows
that, so lur as men are concerned, we have now
a larger uble-bodiod population than whoa the
war began; and that the country is far fro n
lieing exhausted either In men or money. The
mestage will be delivered on Tuesday. The
Treufury report is apt yet completed, and will

The co-operative expedition under General
Foster, which Inst week went out to strike the
Charleston and Savann ili Railroad, has failed.
BAnoHl'.'la despatch from General Hardee to
General lirnu'g, under date of the 2d Instant, an
nounces that he has whipped the enemy, and
driven him beyond the Coosawbatchco Fo-tcr
leaving his dead and wounded on the field.
The tone of the papers of S.itttrd ty is much
more jubilant than hithorto. They sta'a that
not only has Sherman not taken Millen, but that
ho was badly beaten beforo that place. They
also bonstingly proclaim that he will never bring
ono-hnlf of his armv to tho coast.
Tcople will, of course, receive those statements
w ith the usual grains of allowance.
Knowing ones say that the President's Message
will deal with tho peace question as heretofore,
and that no peace propositions will be containo l
In it beyond a perfect willingness to receive tho

The people having by the recent election decided
in favor of war, it will be carried on to a success

IXPEDITION OF GEN. FOSTER.
Attempt to Tap tho Charleston and
ITS PROBABLE SUCCESS.
Hilton Head, November 30, II A. M. I havo
come round to Hilton Head this morning, and
titid that Foster's expedition landed at Boyd's
Point, on tbe Broud river, yesterday morning,
and were to strike the Savannah and Charleston
Railroad at Grnhamsvllle, twolve miles from tbo
point of debarkation.
They marched out yesterday, finding nothing
to oppose them but cavalry, who didn't oppose,
hut skedaddled. This morning I hive heard
heavy tiring In the direction of tho railroad. Ttie
captain ol the steam transport Hoiuhton, Just from
tlie front, having left lioyd's Point at U-3d A. M-,
says that the report was current when he left that
our forces had captured seven miles of tho rail
road, and were still advancing.
He says the tiring this morning Is very heavy.
I do not credit tlie story of too captaro of so
much of tbe railroad. '1 he country is very im
practicable for the movoment of troops, and Fos
ter could scarcely have got on so fast.
At Hilton Head we are all hopeful of Foster's
success In taking the railroad and holding it, thus
cutting olf communication between Charleston
and Savannah. cw York Times.

Two bouses were burned, several injured and
ruined by our artillery.
We used considerable artillery this afternoon
on our rifjbtand right centre, but elicited no reply
from the ltebel artillery. Tbe sunposriou is that

All railroaiiing south of this city has ceased to

Nashville and the surrounding country for miles

destruction of Hebel property in defense of tho

next made an attack on tho fire-proof. They
rolled it Into the front storo, notwithstanding It
weighed between six and seven hundred pounds.
They turned the safe on its side, drilled a hole
near the lock, and placed therein a large charge
of blasting powder. Tho quantity of powder
used was so largo, that tiie explosion blew the
tloor completely olf tbe sufo. The explosion
aroused the attention of tho wholo neighborhood.
Two police ollicers standing about a half square
