Gen. Brown's Official Report—His Oonohi sions from the Fight—Eeform in Colonel Snipe's Eegiment—An Intended Bebel Advanee. WASHINGTON, December 14.—The official report of General Brown about the Pickens fight has been received. It confirms it as an undoubted victory for the Union. Fort Pickens remains entirely uninjured. Fort McRae was sadly shattered by our fire1 , and the town of Warrington and part of the Pensacola Navy Yard, were burned. Only six men in Fort Pickens were hurt. General Brown has suggested, in his report, several points gathered from his experience in this action.— One is that James' rifle projectiles are comparatively useless. That the Farrott gun is much preferable, and that if he had the latter piece at the fort, be would have utterly demolished the enemy. He further says that gunboats drawtog only six feet of water, aad armed with rifled guns, can do more service in these waters than a forty gun ship or such vessels as the Niag ara and the Bichmond.

The Documents from the State Department. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 25 December 1861
The Documents from the State Department. The documents from the State Department, submitted to Congress on Thursday, disclose the important fact that our Government now occupies the position that it held in reference to foreign Governments at the beginning of the rebellion, and that though the United States early offered to accept the Paris declaration in reference to privateering, both England and France desired to make an exception in favor of the Jeff. Davis Confederacy, to which the Government has refused to yield, leaving the United States free from any obligation to accept the Paris declaration, white, the few rebel privateers are nowiugitives on the high seas, or are lying idle in Southern harbors. A resume of the documents shows the following to be our relations with foreign nations: England entertains, or at least expresses, no Sympathy for us, but rather ihe reverse. France has not been cordial, but has been le'sa offensive than England. Austria has been friendly, ...

DIFFEB-ROES OF OPIHION [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 25 December 1861
DIFFEB-ROES OF OPIHION The opinions of men, on subjects of political and religious interest, are as varied as the features of the ra'ce. These differences originate in the mental peculiarities the education, motives and aims of individuals ; but primarily and mainly are traceable to the first cause mentioned, different intellectual endowments. All men do not reason closely or well, or dispassionately, or from the same stand-point, and many do not think at all, but adopt the convictions of others without the mature reflection and careful examination their importance and their bearing on personal and public happiness often demands. Such habits of mental idleness and Of listless indifference to subjectsof political concern are smitive curses in a free country, whose MistitrttTOTiB 'derive their very vitality from •the popular intelligence. Yet we have such habits to deplore, as well as the evils that flow legitimately from them, in the shape of unwholesome and improvident legis...
