Thk Yasksk SirjATiox.—Lincoln’s majority in the Eiei'iortU ccileges is very grrat, approaching to nBiDimiij; bui the popalar majority is n6* eaually grcAU Tbit vihich we hoped for is rsalizsd, viz: the re-electioa ot Lincoln with a great and growing party oppoat d w him. We have not yst seen the particu- iare of tr>e papula* vote, but leam that Lincoln’* ag gregate m. Jonty is efuraated at 300,(K'0,and of that number on«-hait«. or 150,000, is given by the New EcgUnd Siaw#. Toe greaf iJiate of New York is so flbaily divided that out of some SW.OOO v*tes LiccolD’tf majoriiy is on>y about 8,000. It will be actm;tt*>d ibat 30i>,000 majority in a vote of verr nearly four millions is comparatively small. It leaves l,8i)U,000 voters opposed to Lincoln and his policy, and in favor, as «re have rea£>on to hope, of peace. Nor do wo be ieve that tlfe friends of pea^e are con fined to tU'B great minority, but that almost every Toter for L.ncoln w:ll be equally in fa»or of peace end of ietiiug the South go, if our armies j&ould con tinue to whip and baffle the great armies of Grant and Saermau, and especialiy if our people soonld preser.i a united front in aa anconquerable deter- aiinauoa to he eitisfied with nothing short of inde- pdndeaca and 4ercai separatiou from tli© yankee lati n.

It woald be difficalt to imagine a mere cewardly act, considered either in reference to the Florida or to the Braailian government. The former run into at dead hoar of night, when totally off her gaard, for the avewed pmrpese of sinking her. The latter ioiulted''became itie is c. comparatively feeble power. And all this ii to be atoned for, wiped otft, by a cringing apology from Seward, sheald the stronger powers of Earope demand it, for whieh Sew ard is to pave the way. aceerding to the New York Tribune, as follows:— “Thflre is reason to h«lievff tha' the course to be adopt ed with referHnee*to the icfringement of Breailian eovs- rc jgnty in the capture of the Florida *n »ne cf her harh»irs, will he jnhs'antial'y th« tranfmission o>' a dispatch eay- inr that thin Oov*rnirent will be glad t» receive ind ;ive * favorable consideration to any pri'pojiti»n Brsxil may bavc 'o make. i;f course, tb^re can be n- difBculty where both parties are equa'ly des'rous lO avoid it” eorrespon- Thk Talk in Bosopa.—The London dent of thft Oincinati Gillette writes: ‘ I might eauaerate many tigns over h‘*retbat iridicatn the settled and universal prescotiment that th» Sonthera rebttllion is in some form qr other soon t* coIiap«e, I have not heard for several month* what fonnfrly I heard l«ny. “The South will nc^er beconf^uer^dl” The Tim'»e ‘’BP not uttered that prophecy, ooce so frequent in its rtoluraas, lor four or five monihi*/' The Richmond Examiner, in which we find the above, might have shown that it was nntruo, by quoting from the Times of the 26th October, its de clarations that “every day that the war goes on we see less and less probability that the great fabric of the Union vjll ever be reconstructed in its original form,” and that “wo look forward at no distant date, to the day when the credit of the Republic must be hopelessly and utterly destroyed.” Thb Tallahassxi.—As it has been officially ar- nounced at Richmond that the Tallahassee has re turned to Wilmington, there can be ao icapropriety i" our saying, that we have seea a letter from a gen- tlemaa who was on board of her during her late brief cruise of ten days, otatiug that she captured and destroyed seven yankee mefcnantmen. In going out from Wilmington the oiociiaders fired 4i) shot at her, oae of which passed through the bow, but hart no one. She experienced a very heavy gale, after which, at daylight one morning, she espied sev en other yanjcee merchantmen, but the sea was un- tortunately too rough to lower a beat for their cap- tar©. A yaakeo cruiser then chased her for«threo days, when, about tne latitude of Beaufort she gave up the chase and went to that place, as is supposed, to get other cruisers, and so on the same day there appeared seven of them, one of ifhich, a very fast^ and large ship, got so dose as to fire 45 shots at the rallahasssee, all of which Missed iheir mark. The rallahassee gave her a few shots in return, and she soon began to drop astern, then changed her course and made fur the bar. The Ta.lahassee made for the beach and reacaed it, then steered for the bar also and reached aad passed it ia safety, thongh t&e yaakea nad had the start of her. Cbstificates oy I.vDKBTfDNKss.—An officcr of the governiacnt has called cur atteniion, and asks us to call that oi our readers, to tne propriety of mveat- ing in the 6 per cent. (Jertidcat«s wiiich the Treasury is authorized to ioRue. Taere are two lights in whicn toe subject uiay be viewed. There is ou appeal to pavriotiijm, which, however, in our present circum- skances id h i another nano for self-interest, siao’ our eve;y intereat is bouad up in the success of the Lcafederacy in its straggle for independence, and tiiut sacceiis is depeadeat upon tho procurement «>f funds to carry on the war. The Trtasury is only authorized to issue two hundred millions of currency, of which much tne larger ponion is already issued. Besides tuia, the supply of mn'^a must accrue from the sale of bonds aad the issue of these certificates of iadebtednesi, which it is hoped will be received by crediu>rj of the government in lieu of currency. Thus, wnen a person sells to the government officers any provisions, or becomes a public creditor by con tract for work, it is desirable that he snould only re quire payment of money to as limited an extent as possible and receive tue remainder in these certifi cates. Their advantages t re, tnat they bear 6 per cent, iuterest, payable bemi-annnally, and are exempt Irom tctxation oa either principle or interest. They are thus better than any bonds issued by the gov ernment except tne 500 millioa bonds, (and these can cinly be bad at $1350 lor a i^lOOO bond, whilst the \'ertificates are to be had at par,) for tbe reason that the taxable bonds at preseat yield but one or two ptr cent, a year, and there can be no expectation of such a reduction of the tax as wili leave as much net income irom them 69 from these untaxed Certificates, i'hey are payable two years after peace. It is true that these certificates have been sold in the stock markets at less ttian par, (not by the gov- ♦irnment, whica does not sell them at all, but by the reeipieni# from ifte government;) but that we sap- i>o(je to hn owing to the fact that they are not desiT' uDi« for remittance to Europe, wnilst bonds are parchased in Urge quantities for such remittacce 10 an individu.^1 wi'o dee ires an investment yielding «-ertaia and fair rate of interest, they^are just as KCod Bs bondrf. Aa such, we would respectfully urga up( n all snoh crt ditori^ of tho government as '.an affuid to make en inc'estment, to hold, tbe pro priety of aidintr the government m its efforta to keep down the volume of the curi«acy bj pUuaog its in- debtediNie ia % ftuidtd ahap» A Chkistmas Diir.xKa roa ocra BjLDnas.—The Richmond If big notices the propoiitiou of tae jan- kees in the Northern cities to furnish a dinner to ihfcir soldiers in the field, acd proposes to our farm ers to imitate thoir example, one of tne few yankee examples tnat can be ioi.tated with propriety. vV* se ond the suggestion, except that tie idea ueed no be confined to the farmers—aluiost everybody eau contribute something towards ii. The Whig says to the farmers: “lend ereiy tnr- koy, chicken or pig tner can possibly spare.

Mail Fah.urs.—We regret to learn that all our packages for offices douth of Warsaw, that left here on Thursday afternoon, were brought back on Friday, to start a/ain on their travels oa Saturday. Tne mall from this place arrives at Warsaw about 2 or 3 o’clock in the morning, not Ijog, we suppose, before the a'artiug of the mail /or this place, and it is perhaps not surprising toat the worthy Postmaster should ue somewhat drowsy about that time of iiight; but as such misi.'ive4 have occurred more than once, we would respectfully suggest to him to have separate places in his oihce for placing the mails to and /ram this place. Thk Old Issci.—We rejoice to see that C^gress is aboui to exteud the time for the redemption of the old issue to the 1st oi July next. Tnis is right. Tne people submitted with general cleerfulness to the tax of one third on these notes, but the repudia tion of the remainder is un'Worthy of the Confederacy, especially when that remainder would be found to be la the hands of the more ignorant classes. Better impose a slight additional tax upon thum for e;ich month until returned, since it is i.nportant that they should be returned and withdrawn from circulation. THE WAR. From the Richmond Sentinel, llth. The war ce'vre io exciting to-day, and telli of ac tivity everywhere. The campaign of 1864, initead of pasamg its last days in peace, is f« expire in sters- The 18th day of November Is here, asd wint«r has given ample warning that be ie not ftr behind hie time. But in Virginia new moveBients are afoet, and in Georgia and Tenaessee a vast caapaign, siB- gularly complicated, is in process ef development. Sheridan, after doing his worst in the Talley, fell back to a point comparatively near the Baltimore A Ohio railroad, and anamei the defenslTe. From this position he has at last effected what be has been aiming to do for weeks. He is believed to have eent off a large portion of hii command to Gen. Graat If tnis prove correct, and we th>jik it will, we miy expect a speedy renewal of heavy operations in this vicnity. Gen Grant has been hitherto incomjietent 10 any new enterprise. He was only able to lie be hind his works, and watch. True, he made recently an important attempt. Dr^wiag every man fredi liis trenches that ^e dared, and pressing into the service hifl cooks and teamsters aid mosiciaas, he threw out flanking columns at both ends of the conh-onting lines, and sought to turn our position. 0' his failure and Hia severe chastisement it would be superfluous to ppeak. To hia surprise, he found himself every where vig'orously Euet, and bloodily reposed. Re tiring behind his ^I'orks again, he has been since con tent to remain in- ive. If joined, howu. -r, by Sheridan, Grant would once more ia^ulge hope of .'^dvactago from a rtuswal of bis cndeavoiii. Uo wvuld calculate on bting able to hold ^ his Mcas, and at the same time have a' iarre moveable oolainn for flank euterprises. This columa he i»ay ven ture to throw far out, in imitation of Sbermaa’s *ove- luent npon Joncflboro’, aad r^'ly upoa its ability to do- feat aay similar forc« of our own. If this bo his plan, we inay ««zp»ct that he will attempt to exoeufeo it with celerity. As soon as Sheridan joins him, ho will proba- bljr aim to dalivor ablow, if po6sibI&,b«fore wo are ready to mset him If tiie vaist fleet of monitors collected and colleeting, under Portar, art to piay a part in Grant’s operations, than the latter's maiu attempt will be oa the uoi th side of tbe James. If the flaet, however, operate against il luicgton, thQ Grant will more upontMeiouth side, with a view to cut our communications with that quartsr As the season of storms ia at hand, wo hardly suppose that the clumsy iron clads will be ventured out at sea. Poor svrimmers at bast, oae gale such as the Carolina coast has of en listened to, would sink the last of them. Oa* tha whole, we think that this colloctioa and co-operation of fieetn and arniif^s ara meant for Hichmoad; and that soon we shall hear the roar of their united artillery. It is our butiinrss to bs pre|»ared for the onset. The wave is coming—the rock must bo ready. Grant has fariouily flung himself upon us many times heretofore, aad has always been repelled and discomfited; we must administer to him the same disuipliae again. Vfe dare bay he will have Ms u:nal luuk. Ths iatcrval sinoe his lac^t attaoks baa not bs*n pMssd idly We caa say no more. From Teanessee we hare no further tidings to report from Beauregard through our owa sources; but that it self is tidings. The U ailed States papers report him as baring orossed tbe Tenness-je river. We suppose he has, and ttiat he is now in Middle Tenaessee. The p;an of operations on Sht^rman's part, at we learn from the samo source, and we suppose correctl/, is, to leave Thomas, witii such reiDforeomaata as have heea saat him, to op pose Beauregard, while Sherman with his own column shall Buovo bouth from Atlanta. This Is so confidently asserted, and is supported by so much of circumstauce, that we accept the programme as the true on«. “■ * The first point marked out, as aimed at by Sherman, is Macon, distant fr«?m Atlanta 108 miles, Alacon gained, we are iaformed that he is a^it to move upon iSarannab, I9U miles from Macon, and upon Charleston, li>4 ailes fsrihsr. Perhaps Auijusta, i64 miles from Mauoa by rail, is to form a poiut la the grand tour. * Having resolved upon such a march, Shennaa has committed bita^elf to it, by tearing up the railroad be hind him as far back as to Altoona, aad by destroying the bridge over the Chattahoochee—a singular maucea- vre to be sure. Sinca then his paopla at hoi.ie have heard nothing from him; we trust the}’ never will agaia. It is the speculation of some that instead of marching upon iavaanah acd Charleston. Sherman will move for Mont- ^mery and M^bde. Go which way he will, he has a loiig ro'id bifvTe him, and it wdi bo our iault if it prove no* a rough one. tv ill B^uregard turn and pursue Sherman, or will he prosecute his own campaign—the one moving Sorth, the other South? His purpostse are neceesarily secret; nor arc we in possaseion of tae information for an opinion as to the best poli*-y It is to ba ho^^ that the people of the States through which Sherman proposes to mirch wili fliag thamselves i^n him with a courage that shall do them honor, "nierc is a capit.al *.litfereace between hts situation sod that of Uvod’s; he is in an enemy's country, while Hood is among tri. nd^ No sacridce of property, no activity of opposit’o.i, raast be oimt-d now, or considered ei- ceadive. I'-ar down tbe bridges, f>lo;k the roads, rn- :aove or d«?atroy supplier, cut otf foragers, fight at every pas^.

The bom bardments of Dutch gap was kept up in fine style, and the hoomiug of tne guns was heard distinctly in our streets. There is a general impression, gathereji chiefly from hints dropped by the yaakee press, that (Jraat is preparing for the final grand movement of the canpaignin Virginia, which it is cc'nfidentiy hoped by yankee people is to end the war by taking Kichmood. Coustant arkd repeated failure seeming to have ao effect upon him, we know of no reason why he should not make anotner attempt to d slodge our army. As Butler’s ^aual is not yet fin ished, fvn attack on our c.'ntre is haroly to be thought of, and hid next attack will probably be, to some ex tent, a repetition ot his last, except it will, we thiok, oe the last reversed; that is, he wal assault with his ueaviost columns oa the north side. It is said he is already mustering his forces for the fray, and de'^ert- ers report that he has been reinforced by a portion of Sheridan’s command frcmthe Valley; but this we shall not iuiplicitly credir until it comes to us through some less questionable channel. From Petersburg we have nothing; of interest. Tne Yankees coutiaue their raids and depredations into Surry aad the neighboring coun Jes aad are t-reatin ^ the inaab tants with unusual barbarity —the raiders Dcing mostly negroes.—Rich. Dispatch, \^th. From, Oeurgia.—The only official information re ceived by the press yesterday was that Sherman had destroyed tne Northwestern and Atlantic railroad from Atlanta to Altoona, tfe Chattahoochee bridge included. This movement is difficult to anderst»nd, exccpt as explained by uiiotficial reports that were’ in circulation during yesterday. If they be true, the deslruction of the railroad can be understood, though It wul still appear a superfliious labor. The reports had it that Sherman, having burnt Atlanta on the 15th. last Tuesday, had set out for Macon with three corps, amouuung together to 35,000 men, and that he had, on yesterday, reached Jonesboro’, 22 m'les south cf Atlanta. If there is truth in these accounts, as we bc’iove there is, Wheeler has much to answer for. I devolved upon him to watch Sha-man and Keep posted as to his movements. Only four days pgo he rpporrj-d him “moving towards Bridgeport.” Now^ it is said, he reports him moving towards Ma- coa, as abo?e stated. Tbia latter report is corrobo rated by otner evidence. Sherman will, we think, meet with opposition he does not calculate upon before he reaches the forti- fication»» of Macon. These works, shou’d he ever reach them, he will find of the most formidable cha racter, and with the troops that before that time will be collected in them, they must give him a vast deal more tronble than he evidently counts upon. If the Georgians will battle -tor their trenches as the Pe tersburg militia did last June for theirs, or the Rich mond m.litia did at Staunton river bridge, later in the summer, Macon will be saved. In undertaking this expedition Sherman is too prudent .t, mau vo rely upon sijbsistinsr his army on the couuf-jr. It bec-MU: s mteresting and important to confc'dcr wu pjtnt he calculau^s upon makiog his »>a3 j 01 supplies. His destruction of the railroad northwest of Ationta proves that he has cut loose from the Caattanooga oase. He must, then, ^e look- iog to s-me point ou tlie Atlantic or tne Gulf. We are disposed, for several reasons, to believe tnat Pen sacola 1; the selected point; this, not became of its greater proxiinity than any other post to bis present field ot operations, but because it is ascertained that r«.T more than a month very large supplies have been us^cuiuulated there. If he tioil to take Macon at the first dash, he will probably run for Pensacola, and make it a new base of operations. It is not to be to enable him to enter ipon a siege wUch ihall o«- a«^ any considerablo leagth of time. We have ventured the epinion that Shermaa had Pensacola in view as a new bate of snpplies; but it it proper to say there aro reaioni why he night se lect eese peint on tko Atlan*'ic as boiair nearor at hud. Savanaah, for instance, cffsrs advantages, did iti approach not iavoive the certainty of a rreat deal of heavy fighting. ^ * We loot with intoBie interest to fall and authen- tic sews frem Geergia.— Ib. the Valley.—Passengers by last night’s train aay that nothing special has baen heard from Barly at 8ta«nten for two days past; but it is sup posed tbat he is driviag on towards the Potomac. Oar cavalry had been within a very skwt distance of Harper’s Ferry, and made some captures of men and horses. The Yankees have been behaving worse than nsuat in Winchester.

Br0gHian jtc«0unt of the Capture 9f iht Fl*ri- dm.—'I’ho following account of the seizure ot tn^; Florida in the ^irt of Bahia is taken from a Brazilian journal. It appears the Florida had run under the guns of a fort for protection:— ‘•Tho. vessel was seized by the Wachusott, and the re port of her capture was quickly spread through the city. The next day an officer uf tne Florida noiihed the com mander of the Wachasett tbat hs had bo right to cap ture the Florida in tkat port, and that the Brazilian bov- ernmeat would demand aa explanation of his courei-; that tha port was free to all vessels, aad that the capture of such vessels should be maae outside. The aeieuro caused great excitement among the people of liahia. The whole lauit lay in tne W achusett, as she bad violiited tue laws of the rrofince. After seizing the vessel, sb* was tied to the VV'achusutt, whose commander at once prepared for sea. The small guns of tno Florida and tae crow were removed to tbe vV achusett, and a portion of the anginds were taken aw&y in order to prevent uer escapiag. As she was going «'ut, the people, gathered oa tbe saore, aud batteries were levelod at the vessel Some of tne mea oa the Wucbu- sett then fired revolvers at the spectators, which iacreaeed the excitesisnt, but the vessels left the port. W hen tae Florida was hoardad by tae officers of the ffachusett, tke crew acted very quietly, but the men of the Wachusett endeavored in vain to make them act otherwise.
