His estimate that the public debt Would reach on the 20th of June, 18G3, the sum of $ 1 ,122,207,463 24, was over the mark, the actual amount is found_ to be hut $l,- •058,798,181 , B . 7 ,CWhilst the disbursements for . the year were'. estimated at 5608,340,3= 48, but the actual total wits i 614,709,995 68. The actual receipts in the treasury from all sources were for the same period $5,329,044 21 more than the expenditures. The receipts from all ordinary sources of revenue, except the intdrnal revenue, exceeded the estimates; the revenue frOrri customs amounted t01569,- 059,642. 40, whereas Mr. Chase had estimated them at 68,04t736 50. The internal revenue fell far short of the estimates, °Wing, in a measure to the imperfect execution of the law, and principally ,iri the change, of tbela l w of Cengrass after the estimates we 'e Made. The recciptS for the fiscal year of 1864 (in cluding loans to the amount of $ 594 , 00 0 , 000 ) are estimated at $755;568,500 35, :and the eipenditures• to $749,731,050. 42•:.-this in eludes the interest on the public debt. The Report of Mr. litemminger, th rebel Secretary of the Treasury, gives al most gloomy picture of rebel finances. war on bands that is costing them pk less than from three to four millions per day; their whole- actual revenues _during- ten it - ninths have been less than seven millions. The rebel debt will reach the_sum of *.5:. ) ,400,- 000,000 by the end of 1864. Mr. Memmin ger thus foreshadows the failure of there hellion in his report: - • - "The continuance of the- notes as a eirgulating medium to their present extent involves the ruin of public and private credit. and will•deprive the Gov ernment of the mean?of defending thet lives and Property of its citizens. If the currency remains in the present expanded state, no tneasiires!of relief can be made effectual. Prices mast advance, and 'the means of the Government to pay tlieo prices must daily lose efficiency. Tares become fruitlessby reason of the depreciation of the money.

He was pioneer in that famous raid it Gen. Stonerrian — almost to the gates of HieliniOnd, and at the battle of Gettysburg be was the first to enconyter and drive the rebels from the WWII. His appreciation as an officer is proved by the devotion of Gen. kotonenian to him;during his illness, and in his ?arrest recommendation - to the President to appoint him a Major General, which was done and the dying hero had the pleasure of signing his acceptance, but remarked,' as his friends raisedyliim up in bed, 'that he feared he could not use it.

Cannon, of Delaware, has issued a proclamation calling for4egro volunteers in that State, and apfbifiting places' of ren dez.Vous in the several counties of the State. The 11. S. gunboat Daylight, while going in- shore to - take possession of a stranded blockade runner, was blown up by a ,shell from a rebel battery. Most of her officers and crew were lost:. Tho Morris Island correspondent of the New Redford Mercury `writes that the stew- m'er Plauter, the vessel which was run out of Charleston harbor by Robert Small, and turned over'to the blockading fleet, has been captured by the rebels. Richmond papers report that Fort Sumter has been set on fire, and the woodwork most ly destroyed. 'Several fires have also taken place in the'city, which may have been caus ed by Gilimore's Greek fire, though_ the Charleston•journals deny this. On the 20th ult.. 6,4. Slenip's 64th Va. regi iient was surprised by Union cavalry in Lee County, Vat, near Jonesville.. Slemp had his men in an ambush, but was 'surround ed and taken prisoner. A few days before a portion of the same regiment had been cap tured in another place. During ,the march of our troops from Chat tanooga against Longstreet at Knoxville, Granger's corps got in advance of Long street's ammunition 'train, while Howard's . corps was in the rear. There being no es cape for the train, 40 loads of ainmunit•on and two locomoli. es were run into the river at Loudon. Pgqlirtlit A xt has now a wonderful line of fortiiikatias. All the rebels in Rebeldom could not dislodge us, and the works are be ing strengthened every day. The colored troops, of whom we-have,nearly thirty regi; rnents there, are being , well disciplined, and by Spring , will take the field. Gen. Andrews is,in command. A cavalry raid. which was sent'out fro.o Williamsburg under the direction of Co'. \Vest, cros'sed the **he - Ft:tiny river, and succeeded in capturing - about one hundred rebels, at Charles City Court House on the 14th inst. They aliso captured about s•xty fine horses. Among the prisoners taken were several'commissioned officers: ' The steamer McClellan arrived at New, Orleans on the 3d inst., and brought the rebel prisoners' that were captured at Mustang Among them were A number of officers. - Gen. Hamilton, Military Governor of Texas, reached Brazos on the 2d inst., and would enter upon the duties of his office as soon as possible. Lee's - cavalry endeavored•on Sunday to cut 3leade's communications with Washington by destroying the bridgei across Cedar creek, near Catlett's Station. About seven hun dred made a dash at the guard posted at the bridge, but were' driven off after a short fight. The line of railroad froni the front to Alexandria will:be protectedby both cavalry and infantry hereafter. 41 The steamer Chesapeake was re-captured on Thursday last, in Sambre, harbor, N.S., by Steamer Ella and Anna. All but three of the crew got on shore before the arrival of the latter vessel, and escaped. Soon after the capture the S. steamer Dacotah arriv ed at Sambre, and the three vessels are now in that port. The Nova Scotian authorities have given orders for. the arrest .of the pirates. We have a startling ricce of news from Novsl Scotia, being nothing less than the. resale of the pirates of the Chesapeake by a mob of citizens at Halifax, N. S. The pris oners were landed from the Ella and Anna, when the government officials were seized and held till the pirates had been sent off in a boat, probably to some vessels lying in the harbor. The United States gunboats, of which there were five lying at Haliffii, immediately left for Portland and Boston. A New Orleans correspondent:of The Bos ton Traveller writes that the expedition of Gen. 'Banks to , Texas is k 'glorious success. The Union men are rallying.under the sten , dard of Gen..Aßanks in- large numbers. All the Texans required was a force to back them up, and they repeatedly said that if a .sufli cleat army was sent to assist them they Would soon have Texas all right again. ' Tbey have already proved the truth of their statements, for Gen. Banks, has recruited two • regiments. since he landed in that State, and the work is still going on, the Texans coming from their places of concealment and enrolling themselves in the Union' army, Advices from 'Gen.. Banks' army report the capture of a fort tiVSlatagorda,. Texas, and the occupation of the; town by the Fed mai forces. The Confedera r tes evacuated the fort - and blew up the magazines on the ap proach of the Union troops, all escaping but six. The fort mounted ten guns. data= gord.t, -situated on a bay of the same name, at the mouth of the Colorado river, has a considerable trade, and is the depot 1b... the produce of the Oolorad.N valley, which is one of the richest.parts of Texas. It is stated by a Washington correspond 'ent, that it has recenily come to the knowl edge of the Government that there are along the frontier of the Canadas Upwards of 10,000 deserters, most.of them in a suffering condi tion, and anxious to return to the United States and join their regiments. It is prob able that a proclamation will shortly be is sued by the President, offering a pardon to all who will return to their regiments with , -, in thirty days. The Government has assur ance that such an amnesty will gladly #m accepted by deserters. In reply to the resolutions passed in honor of Gen. Hooker's promotion to the command of the Army of the Potomac by, the' Oregon Legislature, that officer wrote 6 . 175 e Gov ernor of Oregon, under date of Sept. 20, as "It is ipadmitsible in me to refer to my official connection with the Army of the Potomac. That can only be _learned from my report; when made public through the prescribed channels. I can 'only add that I relinquished its command` frOm the highest considerations of the public good, and with the unshaken confidence of the Government and of the army in my ability to guide and direct its fortunes:" The Federal forces in East Tennessee have it is repork by ,telegraph, met with a re vere. A dispatch from Rutledge says ,that the troops of General Longstreet made an attempt to cut off and capture Gen. Shack elford's command—who-were in pursuit of them—at Bear Station, on the' Cumberland and Morristown railroad, on Monday. A heavy force of the Confederate cavalry mov ed down the left bank of the Holston river, intending to dross at Kelly's Ford, and take the Federal forces in the rear. This attempt, however ,: was checked by Gen. Ferrero, who sent the brigade of General Hilmfirey's to hold the ford. The Confederates fired across the river with artillery upon the brigade, but with little effect. General Shackelford formed a line of battle tit,Rear' Station, and after fighting until nightfall was driven back half a,mile. Generals Vance, Ransom and Vaugh had joined General Longstreet before, the conflict with General Shackelford. The Federal loss, as far as ascertained was about, seventy-five. POLITICAL INTELLIGENCE. The Union men of Pittsburg have . nomin ated James Lowry for Mayor ; The election is on the first Tuesday in January. The Legislature of Kentucky has postpon ed the time for the election. ed*United States Senator front that_ State 'to the 21st of January. • - Stiles, member of Congress from tie Le high district, in this State, got the unani mous vote of Ben. Wood for Speaker. Stiles must feel flattered with the compliment. The Supreme Court of lowa declares th© soldiers' vote of that State -constitutional. The question was raised to get thrlseat of Mr. Grinnell, Selith Congressional District. It is stated that for the first time since the Presidency of Gen Jackson, the administra tion has been'able to organize in its interest. the Congress elected for the la - st two years of its term. W. K. Sebastian arrived in Memphis on the 4th inst., on his way to attend the present session of the United States Congress. His term as Senator from Arkansas has yet two years - to run. Bridgeport, Conn., for a long time a thor oughly Secession place, was the scene of a Union victory last Neek—the entire loyal ticket for Charter officers having been chosen by majorities ranging from 80 to 113. The Ohio election was duly observed by the officers from that State (one hundred and sixty-three in number) confined in the Libby Prison at Richmond. The poll book and tally list have arrived at Columbus. Of the whole number of votes cast, John Brough received one hundred and sixty-two one be ing given for H. J. Jewett, and none for Vallandigham. Ames Reed, the acting Governor of Utah Territory, delivered .his annual address on the 14th. He congratulates the people of Utah on an abundant harvest, their general prosperity, the richness of the mines, and the peaceful state of affairs With the Indiana. He recommends the 'adoption of the California mining laviti, and the immediate preparation for the reception of a large immigration into Utah during the coming spring. The New York Herald has dropped ISl'Clel lan at last,' and seeks to render Grant-In famous by its fulsome adulatipu, Speaking of thu Presidential eandidutes, it says: . "Qf all men, in, this tiew, Gen. Grant is the man for the Occasion. What military availability is experience has taught us. The battle of-Now Orleans (a small affair, and of no consequence whatever in shortening the war, inasmuch as peace had been agreed uptin befortaho battle was Tought,) made Genera( Jackson a political dictator by OA ofttLe people," etc. • VOL. 70,....WH0LE NO, 3,636. The Rebel Congress is rather a ragged at just now. Their last Congress. bad futt delegations in the Senate and Rouse from all the; Slave States but Maryland and Dela ware. Now Kentucky has but a single m assuming to represent that State—H. Burnett, formerly Copperhead member l our' liational;,Congress. . Missouri has no representatives in either branch. Arkansas has none in the House and. Tennessee has bit' one senator and is not likely to have another soon. AMOng the Senators we notice bit- few of the Old Southern lenders. The origi-,2 nal secessionists, excepting so far as Dail/ has cared for them by Executive sippoint rnents, s have fared badly in the division of rebel honors. ,The people, although,as yet unable to throw off the Secession yoke have manifested their disapprobation of Se cession by defeating most of thoSe who thruit it upon them.

Tea, coffee and sugar are not to be had; milk and water are the only beverages; Indian corn is their principal food. The families are brokeU up and ruined.
