In the Liatrpoot Daily Pod of October 81st is a paragraph, as follows, under the above head: "We have reason to believe that ships belong ing to,,tha Vatted States, now leaving this port, are allbeing .pntin a :condition to repel any attack that may be made upon them while on the voyage to . New York or other Northern ports, by the southern privateers. The merchant vessels here arestrengthened in the upper decks and bulwarks, and are pierced in order to carry guns, all of which are of the - most improved construction. 'Experienced gunners have been engaged to work the cannon on board, and initiate the crew of ,each vessel into the art of gunnery, so that, should the vessels be attacked by privateer; they would not be surrendered without a struggle. 'The e,quliornents of these vessels, 'many of which are now on, their way across the At lantic, while others are ready to sail, are such that privateers Will catch tarters should they come near iiny, :of these quiet-loooking met; chantmen, the cargoes of which (so we are told) replenish many exhausted ' war depots.

It was full time for English merchantmen to be put in proper trim for repelling the southern pirates. • "''' 'A' BLOODLESS WAR.

It was positively stated byldr. _Chase BIM asysteme . tio . plan of vigorous action was resolved on, which would produce results in many places' equally ( brilliant and effective with the demonstration at Beaufort. There has been a general and deep feeling of regret that the events did not indicate this active policy spoken of by Mr. Chase ; but we are very itatiri.eirttrigirafiee-hi-Ea given us through those , who, in loaning the 'vast sums required by the government, had a 4ight to know something tif ithe policy under which'it (the money) *mild < expendeid. mad not be pro Per that other's han these idebbld be informed as to the pOlfcy 4 . the Executive, though' many *ill yet cling tejthe ides thatthe pitblic judgment is that which should be in formed, and should, be encouraged and made confident quite as soonest:should the ,fevy caps taliits to whom the application for money is made. With this assurance that the policy of the Executive is to advance with activity and vigor everywhere, and especially on the Poto mac, universal satisfaction will be felt. Troops are pouring steadily into 'Washington at the I rate of not less than ten , thousand weekly, and their condition and efficiency are at the very highest mark. The gain of war, material was never so rapid on our side as now, and being aosurred that this vast aggregate of farce is not to lie up in idleness for the; winter,, the, higheat hopes will be entertained. -The whole line of the potomac has become darkened with mis fortune and unpleasant incidents from the hour the war opened until now. Norfolk, Haiper's Ferry, and twenty other places wldeh we' have not the heart to mention, call aloud for ven geance. The whole of Eastern Virginia is get ting an odor with us not unlike, that hanging over Sumter and Charleston, and if it requires a million of men to take Richmond, the nation would gladly gather them if the government • win say that they may go there when gathered. The mask battery business of the Potomac calls loudly for vindicative justice. The rebels had a present of two thousand five hundred cannon made them at the outset, an& our poor soldiers baVe done little along the Potomac for fora eight dreary months but to run foul of some of these guris, suffer losses, and retreat without taking them. They will be taken some day, however, and when they are captured let them, ap be sent again to Norfolk, to be melted in one vast heap where the navy-yard once was but where there shall be no more shipbuilding, and refuge for the smallest craft forever. When Congress meets it will be found that the full compliment of half a million of soldiers will be made up. This number is not enough. If by that time there has been no movement against the rebels in Virginia, let at least two finndred thousand more men be immediately authorized. Already there have, bee, several instances of the rejection of new regiments, but let the first three days of the season See 1111 act passed permitting the War Department,tto ac cept every regiment which is offered until the Union army reaches Richmond. When that point is attained there, will probably be no, necessity for further increase of the army ; but it is suicidal to stop,the growth of, the 'artily while the secessionists lie defiantly at Manassas; and shoot our pickets lifter the same old fashion along a line of fifty miles in length in front . of Washington. To move effectively from Beaufort into South Cirolina them mustXanaddillon,of twenty five or thirty thousand men to the force of Gen. Sherman. The army intended to operate on, the Mississippi from Cairo should be fifty thousand' stronger, though 4t isinot the nnmbers will be under Gen. Hallock'a divest den of that foroe. It may be necessary to• re turn several thousand Men to soutti-Wesian Missouri for the protection of that district, and, indeed, we are at a loss to explain ; the POLY, trader which Gen. Hunter has just withdrawn nearly the whole of the army to St. Louis. The settlement of affairs is not yet complete in Mil sauri, witatexer movement may take place oh the Missippi, star, even if Price's' arm is, pre-' vented from 'returning' to Memphis, 'effort will be made to stand out In Arkinsas , and to' ravage Missouri as long as possible.

Importaat_Sathern News. JEFF. DAVIS' MESSAGE TO THE REBEL l Wisrusorott, Nov. 23. *-' giEhitidtittiplfitintWedrietidaf, received here, contain the message of. Jeff. Davis to the rebel Congress. After the Venal congratula tions, he says that the operations of the army s p an to bdpiirde l ly intenttilited by the approach ink wirtier,haVii afforded I Protection to the country and shed a lustre upon its anus through the trying vicieliudetfot liibli dian the arduous raiz ; campaign, hick entitle, our, brave volunteers to oar p ' i and OutiVrade.i.. - / 'lle 'lOl, r'Llriori) tium seven =blithe of war the enemy have not only failed to ektemd their occupancy of our soil, but new States and territories have been added to our confederacy,, wlfile instead of their threatening with of unchecked conquest they have been driven at more than one point, to assumingthe dekusive and upon'a fair comparison between the two belligerents ali to men, military means and financial condition, the Confederate States are relatively much stronger now than when the struggle commenced. Re speaks in high terms of the people of Mis souri -tea hbve condqeted the .war in the face of almost . unparalleled difficulties, with a spirit. ; and success alike worthy of themselves and or tilt great cause in which they are struggling:— Finding that the Confederate States were about to be invaded through Kentucky and that her people af.er being derived into a mistaken security were unarmed and in danger of be ing subjugated by the .Federal traces our stories were marched into that State to repel ale enemy and prevent their occupation of cer rain stratagetic points which would have given them great advantages iu the Contest, a step which was justified not oily by the necessities of self defence on the part of the confederate States, but also by a desire to aid the people of Kentucky. It was never intended by the confederate' States' to conquer or coerce that State, but on the contrary it was declared by our Generals that they would withdraw their troops if the federal government would do like wise. Prbclamation was also made of the desire to respect the neutrality of 'Kentucky and the intention to abide by the wishes of her people as soon as they were free to express their opinions. These declarations were approved by me and I should regard it as oue of toe best et= recta of the march of our troops into Kentucky, iflt should end in giving to her people liberty of choice and a tree opportunity to decide their own destitty according to their own 'will, while, he says, the army has been chiefly instrumental in prosecuting the great contest ; the navy has also been effective in full proportion to its means. lie speaks of the difficulties attending mail transportation, someof which can be overcome only by time and the hnproved condition of cue country on the restoration of peace, but others by legislation. As to the financial system it has worked well so far, and promises good results for the future. By the extent that TreasUry notes may be is sued, the Government is enabled to borrow money without interest, and thus facilitate the conduct of the war. This extent is measured by the portion of the field of circula tion which these notes can be made to occupy. The proportion of the field thus occupied de pends agEn upon the amount of the debts for which they are receivable, and when due not only to the. Confederate and State governments, but also to corporations and individuals are payable in this medium. A large amount of it may be circulated at par. There is every rea son to believe that the Confederate treasury note is fast becoming such a medium. The pro viBlo/1 that these notes'shall be convertible into confederate stock bearing eight per cent. inter est at the pleasure of the holder insures them against a depreciation below the value of that stock and no considerable fall in that value need be feared so long as the interest eh. ll be punc tually paid. The punctual payment of this in terest has been secured by the act passed by you at last session imposing such a rate of taxation as must provide sufficient means for that purpose. For' the succetistul prosecution of this war it is indespenseble that the means of transporting tiroope and military supplies be furnished as far as possible in such a manner es not to interrupt the commercial intercourse between our people, nor, place a check upon their productive ener , =MI In another part of the message he says we have already two main systems of through ,transportation from the North to the South, one from Richmond along the seabord, .the other through Western Virginia to New. Orleans. A third might be-secured by completing a link of 40 miles between Danville in Virginia and Green borough in North Carolina, the construction of this comparatively short link would give us a through route from north to south in the in terior of the 'Confederate States , and give us access to a population and to many resources from which we are now in a great measure de barred. If, he says, further on, we husband our means and make judicious use of our resources it would be difficult to fix a limit to the period chiring which we could conduct a war against the adversary whom we now encounter.— The very efforts which he makes to isolate and invade us must exhaust his means whist they serve to complete the circle and di versify the productions of our industrial system. Thereconstruction which he seeks to effect by arms becomes daily more and more impossible. Not only do the causes which induced us to separate still exist in full force, but they have been strengthened, and whatever doubt may have lingered in the minds , of any must have been completely dispelled by subsequent events. if instead of being a d ssolution of a league it whreindeed a-rebellion in -which we are en engaged wepost fold, ample.yincliattion, for the course we have adopted in the scenes which are now being enacted in the United States. Our people t s noir look z With, contemptuous. as touishment on those with whom they had been so recently associated. They shrink with aversion from the tare idea of renewing such a connection, etc. , witu such a peo-, ple. We may be content to live at peace, but ths separation is final and for the independence we Wive asserted we will accept no atternative.-- Pavia characterizes the nature of the hostilities on the part of `the United.

But not content with violating our rights under law of, nations at home, they have extended these injuries to us within other jurisdictions. The distinguished gentlemen whom, with YOurapprovall. at_the last. tession, I" commis sioned. to represent the Confederacy at certain foreign courts, have been recently seized by the captain of a United States ship on board a auk* .**nte,r.dW. their voyage from the neAtral Spaiiish;porthfafa 4 nuta, to The UnitallitaiteitheA thus wildmed A-general IM==l coseasss. jurisdiction over the high seas, and by entering a British ship sailing under its country's flag, violating the riglos of embassy for most part held sacred even amongst barbarians by seizing our ministers whilst they were under the protec tion and within the dominion of a neutral nation. These gentlemen were as much under the juris diction of the British Government upon that ship and beneath its flag as if they had been on its soil, and a claim on the part of the United States to seize them in the streets of London would have been as well founded as that to ap prehend them where they were taken. Had they been malefactors or citizens even of the United States, they could not have been arrest ed on a British ship or on British soil unless under the express provisions of a treaty, and ac cording to forms therein provided for the ex tradition of criminals. Davis _speaks, of Faulkner es having been perfidiously arrested, and says in conducting this war we have sought no aid and proposed no alliances offensive or defensive abroad. We have asked for a recognisedj place in the great family of- nations, but in doing so we demanded nothing for which we did not offer a fair equivalent. The advantages of intercourse are mutual among nations and in seeking to establish digmnatic relations we were only endeavoring , to place this intercourse under the regulation of law.— Perhaps we had the right if we had chosen to exercise it to ask to know whether the principle that blockades to be binding must be effeohml so Solemnly announc ed by the great powers of Europe at Paris is to be generally enforced or applied only to particular parties. Davis says he has caused the evidence to be collected, which prOves completely the utter inefficiency of the proclaimed blockade of the Southern coast, and shall direct it to be laid before such. governments as shall afford the means of being heard: But although'we should be benefitted, be continues, by the enforcement of the laws so solemnly declared by the great powers of Europe. We are not de pendent on that enforcement for a succesdul prosecution of the war•. As long as hostilities continue the Confederate States will exhibit a steadily increasing capacity to fur nish their troops with food, clothing and arms. If they should be forced to forego many of the luxuries and some of the comtorta of life they will at least have the consolation of know ing that they are thus daily becoming more and more independent of the.rest of the world. The message cooqudes as follows : „"While the war which is waged to take from us the right of self government, Can never attain that ' end, it remains to be seen how "far" it , may work a revolution in the industrial sys r , tern of the world which may carry -suf fering to other lands as well as our own:- 1 In the meantime we shall continue this struggle in humble dependence upon Providence from whose searching scrutiny we cannot conceal the secrets of our hearts and to whoa° rule we confidently suKmit our destinies. For the rest we shall depend upon ourselves.— Liberty is always won where there exists the unconquerable will tb be free, and we have reason to know the strength that is given by a conscious sense, not only of the magnitude but of the righteousness of our cause."
