Anecdote of Edmund Sean. Mr. Howard Paul, who is the Lon don correspondent of the New York Illustrated News, relates, in a recent letter, the following anecdote: Mr. Lewis, who has been connected with Drury Lane for many years, te4d me a characteristic anecdote ofEdr mund Kean, which has never appeared in print, and which you shall have. It seems that the great tragedian and Charles Incledon, the popular singer, were one day walking in Bond street, when they were met by Lord Essex, who bowed distantly to Kean, albeit they were on terms of intimate friendship. Tbe g^ next day Kean found a note at the theatre from my lord, desiring him to call at his house. He went, and, contrary to the usual custom, was ushered into the library, where Lord Essex 'received him. The usual formalities over, the nobleman said to the tragedian, "My dear Kean, you will pardon me. You know how greatly I admire your genius, but I was startled yesterday on seeing you on promenade, arm in arm, with tha...

The Commisssdners hiving resolved to: make the venture of riinning the blockade of Charleston , after mature determination, selected for the experiment the staunch and swift little steamer Theodora, which was, therefore, got ready for s6a with all despatch.

The Arrest of Slidell and Mason—Different Accounts of the Capture. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 27 November 1861

The Arrest of Slidell and Mason—Different Accounts of the Capture. The first intelligence received on Saturday, concerning tbe news of Mason and Slidell's capture, we thought too good to be true, but subsequent reports have confirmed it.— We find in the New York Post of Saturday evening, several different versions of this hig hly important arrest. The most p lausible account says they were taken from the English mail steamer on the 8th instant off Bermuda, by the San Jacinto, Captain Wilkes. Lieutenant Fairfax and thirty-five armed men went from the San Jacinto with five officers, who boarded the steamer and picked out the Commissioners. Messrs. Slidell and Mason made feeble resistance, but were induced to leave with Lieutenant Fairfax. The Captain of the steamer raved and swore, called the United States officers "piratical Yankees" and other abusive names. One of the Secretaries of the rebel Commissioners, named Eustis. also showed resistance; but himself skid colleague accom...

The Expedition Against Mexico — The French Fleet Eeady to Sail (Paris, Oct. 28, Correspondence of London Post.) The French expedition for Mexico is ready to join that of England and Spain. It is generally understood that a United States frigate will accompany the naval force of the Powers, I believe, have by this time signed the Convention for joint action. THE LAND FORCE OF FRANCE—HER OBJECT IN GOING TO MEXICO. (From the Brussels Nord.) The Expedition against Mexico is not only decided upon, but what is more, the French government is very busy in preparing for it. Our expedition will be composed of sixteen companies of marines taken from the ports of France and of the American colonies; they will be commanded by the cheffs d'bataiilon lVArband and Campion. It will be thus seen that the expedition takes larger proportions than at first was supposed.

Cost of the Late Battle. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 27 November 1861

Cost of the Late Battle. The Wabash-fired, during the entire action, 900 shots, being all 8, 9. 10 and 11-inch shells, with the exception of a few rifled cannon projectiles of a new pattern, and which was used simply as a matter of experiment. The Susquehanna fired 500 shots, the lieidville 185, and the average of the gunboats and the other smaller ships may probably be set down at 150 each. There were, in all 16 vessels engaged on our side, and probably from all of them were fired not far from 2,500 shot and shell at the two forts, Walker and Beauregard, the four-gun battery and the three steamers. The average cost of each shot, reckoning shell,' round shot, and rifled cannon projectiles of 2- >eculiar make, and taking into account the value of the powder used to fire them, may be set down at about 88. Thus the burned powder and the broken shell, iron of the battle of Port Royal may be set down as having cost the country not less than 820,000- Reckoning, then, says t...

Children of the Lata Senator Douglas [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 27 November 1861

Children of the Lata Senator Douglas A gentleman has arrived in Washington from North Carolina for the purpose of obtaining permission to carry to that State the two children ot the late Senator Stephen A. Douglas. It appears that these boys are, entitled to large estates in North Carolina and Misissi ppi, which, under the recently enacted law of the rebel confederacy, are in- danger of confiscation on account of the nonresidence of the children, although they are infants. The relatives of tbeir mother are anxious" that they shall be brought south to secure their rights in this property. They are desirous also that Mrs. Douglas shall accompany them, if she will consent. The government has recently concluded not to grant passes to go beyond the lines of the Federal army for such purposes, as it intends to take such action as will render utterly null and void any of the confiscations under the acts of the rebel usurpers of authority in the Southern States.
