Submarine Cable. A communication between WasMngton and the military posts and naval stations on the Atlantic and the Gulf, is a matter of the first importance in prosecuting the war. The subject has been before the Senate, and an able Committee has been appointed. The Government also has had it in consideration, and the result of the inquiries instituted is very favorable. The investigation was intrusted mainly to Mr. Cyrus W. Field, of telegraphic fame. Mr. Field has made a report, which is approved by Gen. M'Clellan, the President, and the Cabinet. The practicability of submarine communication is a matter of every day experience. In Europe the following routes have been recently established: From England to Holland, 140 miles. From England to Hanover,-360 miles. From England to Denmark, 480 miles. From France to Algiers, 500 miles. From Malta to Alexandria, 1,300 miles. Mr. Field suggests the following schedule: 1. That the land line of telegraph be extended from its present t...

Washington. Jan. 10.—The United States Agricultural Society has adopted a series of resolutions advocating agricultural education, and prepared a premium list for a series of experiments on the cultivation of cotton in the Middle and Northern States; also, of hemp and flax, the awards to be made by the Central Agricultural Societies of the States in which the competitors reside. Arrangements have been also perfected for a National Exhibition of native wines, to be held in this city, in January next. Gov. Curtin has arranged to pay the war tax of Pennsylvania by having the State credited in account with the Government, the moneys it advanced to equip regiments and send them into the field. This course will probably be pursued in the case of every other State which has a credit account in the War Department. There is a heavy pressure brought to bear here from the North on the present inactive condition of the army. The War Department, it is stated, has received no official notice ...

_Jfot the Presbyterian Banner. Union Conventions. Messes. Editors :—Will you allow me a little room in your paper to express my cordial thanks to " Equality," for his resolutions, published in tie Banner of January 4th, under the caption of " Union Conventions." They were appropriate, forcible, and timely. If " all Scripture is given, by inspiration of God, (2. Tiin. iii: 16/) and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, and instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, and thoroughly furnished for every good work j" that is to say, if we have the whole Bible for the w/wk ofreligion ,* it plainly follows, that to acknowledge practically, and by a standing Conventional rule, a _paramount claim of conscience, in religious worship, as belonging to those who exclude all of the New Testament, and the greater _part of the Old, irom contributing to their public praise, is a thing that ought nottobe done; and any explanatory declaration that may be ma...

GREAT BRITAIN. Deputations from religious 'denominations, including- jthe Congregational Union, the Baptist Union, and the Baptist Board, had an interview on the 27th of December, with Earl Russell on the subject of the threatened war with America. The English papers continue to teem with articles on the American question, but as they are mostly confined to speculations on the eve of solution, it is not essential to give them. The iron-plated frigate Warrior Mad got her sails bent, and' was to be kept in readiness to leave, pending the solution of the American question. When the Canada left Liverpool, a state of suspense prevailed, and the greatest anxiety was felt relative to the advices per the Africa, then due, in response to those from England by the _[_JSuropq. A body of trained nurses, on Miss Florence Nightingale's plan, were to proceed to at once to Halifax. The Army and Navy Gazette says that there is a prospect of trouble with the Sikhs.

Difficulties Among Oar Generals , It cannot but be expected that difficulties will arise among the commanders, ia an army so large as ours, so suddenly raised, and hence so little trained to military order. A few of our generals have seen military service, though on but a small scale. Some of them have had a thorough education at West Point. A small number have studied the art of war in foreign countries. Many of them have no knowledge in their profession, except what has been picked up by a little reading. All have ambition, and some have much self-conceit, while not a few are aspirants for high civil positions after the war shall have ended. That there shall hence be misunderstandings, frettings, and collisions, is to be expected. Patriotism is not always proof against selfishness. One of the most serious difficulties, so far, is that between Generals Roseorans and Benh_,am. They are good officers, and yet they say hard things of each other. Gen. Kosecrans, some weeks ago, pre...
