Washington. January 16.—-On Tuesday, the rebel batteries on the Potomac fired twenty-six shots at an oyster pungy_, "but did not hit it. Yesterday a fleet of similar vessels ran the blockade without being greeted with such salutes, and arrived safely at Washington. '¦¦ ¦ ¦ -' l: ' ; : ;¦:; ., ¦;• . -.:¦ "¦ Gen. Cameron, in-replying to the resolution of the-Senate, calling for information relative to army contracts and payment of troops, says: "I take occasion to state that I myself have not made a single contract for any purpose whatever, having always interpreted the laws of Congress as contemplating that the heads of Bureaus, who are experienced and able officers of the regular army, shall make all contracts for supplies for the branches of the service under their charge respectively." The Committee on the Conduct of the War, have resolved to advise the immediate passage of a bill to punish with death any person who com1 mits a fraud upon the Government, whereby a soldier is b...

For the Presbyterian Banner. On Breaking the Military Force of tbe Rebels According to the Will of God. Eev. Dr. Breckinridge, of Kentucky, has an able, patriotic article on the " Civil War —Its Nature and End," in ihe December number of the DanviUe Review. Speaking of the union people in the Confederate States, he says > " So far is it from being credible that their deliverance cannot he accomplished, except by,the; slaughter of vast populations, nor maintained afterwards except by immense standing armies, ail the facts of this sad case show, that what has happened in all ages and countries will happen again here, and the mass of the people speedily and joyfully _return, to their allegiance aft soorif as: the mili_*tary force of the rebels is broken, and society is allowed to return to its ordinary condition." Perhaps no man in the United States is better prepared to form a correct judgment as to our national affairs and ithe proper course to be pursued, than the.Breekin...

PERSONAL Got. HiekS, of Maryland, whose loyal and discreet course has done so mueh to save that State from rebellion, in his final Message to the Legislature,says:— "For whatever of* good the great Disposer, of events has made me the instrument, and for whatever of error the fallibility of my judgment lias led me to commit, during my term of office, I am content to await the just ¦verdict of my fellow-citizens when peace and sober counsels, experience and calm reason, shall enable them to approve without partiality, and to condemn without prejudice." Spnrgeonism, according to the English pipers, is being sown broadcast at Oxford and Cambridge. It is stated that more than two thousand copies of Spurgeon's Sermons have been distributed to undergraduates in the streets, and a volume has been sent to every resident M. A., at both Universities. The late Prince Albert, so says the London Critic, should not be held responsible for the stories which were told of him several years ag...

Austria and the united States. It will be recollected that a few years ago, an Austrian man-of-war attempted to take a German, by force, from one of our vessels, in the harbor of Smyrna; the lirian being a native of that country, but having emigrated to the United States. Captain Ingraham_, of our navy, was in the harbor at the time, and hearing of the event he at once laid his ship alongside of the Austrian, with ports open and guns shotted, and demanded the captive. He was successful. Now, in the Trent affair, we took two of our men from a merchant vessel, and it was Austria's turn to call our attention to our own principles. The official letter to our Government is entirely _respect ful. Its purport will appear from Mr. Seward's, answer as follows: [Mr. Seward to Chevalier Hulsemen.] Department g_# State, 1 Washington, January 9, 1862. / To the Chevalier Hulseman, §c, _§c_^c— Sib : —I have submitted to the President the note you left with me, which was addressed to you on the...

From what seems to be reliable telegrams, we give information of a battle near Somerset, between the forces of Gen. Schcepff, and the rebels under Gen. Zollicoffer.

Late arrivals from Europe bring tidings of a far better state of feeling, both in England and France, toward ; our country. Thenews of the surrender of Mason and Slidell, had not yet reached England, but the ebullition of the war spirit had subsided; a strong feeling had shown itself, among the substantial masses, opposed to war; and the quiet tone of leading American journals had inspired hope. Public stocks, which had falbn off four per cent., had risen to former quotation. The price of cotton, which had fallen under a prospect of a raising of the blockade by the war, had advanced; and grain, which had risen under the expectation that a war would prevent imports, had declined. Next week we look for a response to the news on the Trent affair, and for an account of the meeting of Parliament.
