JAN. I, 18432.—Gen. Lane has been assigned
a command in Kansas and Western Missouri. It
is understood that he will, with , the approbation
of the Government, make the experiment of em
ploying slaves of rebels, in his military opera
tions in the West, using them in the transporta
tion, and commissary departments mainly. By
taking hand-mills, it, is thought that slaves can
grind corn enough daily to subsist the army
any where in Arkansas or Texas.

Governments in the Rebel States, will, if passed,

cut up the - international State slave-trade, root

The total amount expended by the Government
in the purchase of firearms since the beginning
of the rebellion is twenty-two million dollars. .
Col. Schuyler, who purchased arms in Europe
for the Government, has reported at Washington:
The entire purchase of arms abroad amounts to
near three hundred thousand stand. The arms
oughtlo be good, as the highest price was paid—
averaging, it is said, $l6 a gun—making about
five millions of dollars' worth.

Six rebel prisoners were sent . to headquarters

left 'wing of our army. Their information is
deemed of high. value, and stringent measures
were" taken to ,prevent all communication with
them. The rebels are expecting an advance of
our army along the whole line. They are more
demoralized than ever before, by discords among
their public men.. Gen. Magruder is believed to
have been relieved of his command at Yorktown,
And Gen. Wise, who has.been quiet since his re
turn from Western Virginia,is expe,cted to as
81111213 command there, and if not there, at Fred

disaffection to the rebel government at Charleston,
amounting almost to insurrection, by reason of
the apparent abandonment of the South Carolina
coast to National invasion, .and the immense de-,
struction of property owners have willingly con
signed to`the flames. Thiy have destroyed not

The Sub-Committee of Ways,and Means are ma
