A friend writer uh from Havana on the Ctli iast., that Lincoln's re-election was looked up- on as a certainty here. Couon is going down with a run, both in England and hero. What does it mean ? Is it the forerunner of peace and indepedence, or a feeling of confidence that the rebellion is about to be crushed. In my next I hope to be able to toll you, for I feel confident that the tono of the English pa- pers by next mail will furnish the key.

rT *> 'r^ \ esndiJate: though, as he mu«t now be convinced of the Blender chances of Lincoln's re election, h< may be supposed to be not altogether indiffeient to the black *i:k gown of the judloinry. Mr. Licsoln's only oour^o, to keep peace with all these candidate-), will be to postpone the appointment till after the election. This, it is sa'd, he will do. It is a mournful reflection, that, at th;s lime, when the country needs a man of the highest and purest judicial attainments, blended with a statesmanship free from the corrupting influences of mere party, the question of choosing a chief justice should turn, as it avowedly does, upon vulgar expediency, satisfy- ing tbis or that man or faction, getting rid of this rival or that, improving one's chances for (he Presi - dency, &c., Stc. This is one of the saddest signs of the times. The editor of the Baltimore Post addressed the fol- lowing letter to lleverdy Johnson, detailing the oir- •umstauces of the suppressal of th...

The Army and Navy Gazette gives the following practical suggestions on the bay- onet charge: "It is a general rul iu the service of Her Majesty, as well as throughout the ar- mies of Europe, that troops before charging with the bayonet should tire a volley, in or der to throw confusion into the ranks of tne enemy, as well as to cause a smoke for them to advance under. The advantage over the present system would be tenfold, were the rear rank alone to fire, the front rank remaining at the shoulder till the word to charge be given, and then firing from the hip as they crossed bayonets with the enemy. Such a fire conld not but be most effectual, for it requires neither aim nor skill of any kind—in fact, nothing but a mere pressure on the tvigger—to ensure the result being most deadly, it being an imposs bility that a bullet can miss, when the riflf is not three feet fr...
