Gen.

It b not a mutiny tbat is to be suppress ed this timt^, but an independent State, never nadcr British rale, that ia to be conquered and “annexed.'' Bhootaa, a poor and Isolatcj^ State, hitherto exempt from the ravages of foreign wars, hsf nrt ouly turned the odd shoulder to an envoy from Engbnd who fenetrated its dreary wastes, but aotually thrcatocod him, so tbat he oopoeivod that I'is life was in danger, and hastily retired. For this afid other tffenccs ]^ngland ^ieolarcs wur flg»5n»=t ^boetan, acd tho BLoolca«i are to be foot cd dowc tho hill of adveraity • Tbp hiatory of this country of Bhootan is inti resting The best authorities say that it is about 250 miles iu length by 95 in breadth, with an firea of Gd.OOO square miFca, and a population Ol 750,000 souls —having Bengal proper on the ecu'h, Assam to the soulheMt, and Thib''t to the north. Like the highlands of Scot^^Sl^* ^ pl»5e of Mountain fasfnisaes and wild Its people, wheni few white men have seen, are rude barba- riaas, whose arms are the bow and arrow and the spjar, and who are of Tartar blood, with broad tri angular faccs. email oblique eyes, and yellow skio» Tbt ir religion is Buddbigt, ot a modified type, and tho country swarmi with mcndicant priests. The hills produce good iron; buiMing stone is abund ant; dense virgia lorcsls otier icoxhauutible sup plies rf lumber, alid a narrow belt of valley land yields tropical fruits The towo% few but ere commanded by caitellated strongholds, which arc caid to bo formidable The rulers are a Deb R Jab—who is the aetcal sover«iga as well »s the principal merchant—sand a Pharma Rajah, or aominal king, who has no civil power, but is in vested with a surprising number cf divine- attri- bu'-es. Snch ia tho country and such tho people that ihe Eaglish govcrniuenfe has now resoIvdW to add ro its portfessioES in India. The singular exemp tion from the pains and penalties of war, defeat nnd va.ssalnge, which the Bhooteas have hitbcrto er joycd, is explained by tiie remoteness of their tersiloiy fr''ca the centres of British influence; and tho ecdden desire of ppfsession is probsbly a tribdfable to the Briti.s.h didiuclination to endure a defiance—provided always, that the offender is weak. The defiance csmo about in this way: The Bbooiea-, being savages, knew no better than to descend from their mountain.**, like the Scottish c-'terars of the la*t ccatury fi>r predatory incur- sions into the territory cf their nfigbbors, and they gathered spoiU an l to k prisoners The ag grieve i vio»irns, bring vassals of Eag’and, in voked aid frjm their rul“rs, and an envoy wns te .t up among the hills last summer tJ recover tl^o booty, rebase the captiv-'s, aad remouetrate with the Bhootcas. He was insulted, albeit he was “the fcion of a noblo English family,” as a L ndca journal phrases it; and, hia negotiation failing, he wss ahl-j to save his life cnly by the compu’scry si>;ning of a treaty for the cession of the tea-growing region of Assam to Bhootan. Tl is was too much ffjr the Governor General’s patience, and on tho 12th of November he issued a proclamation declaring war against the Bhoo tcas By the latest rep^rtJ, it appears that the whole ^rritory is to bo annexed to Bcnga’; tbat the people are Ijj^.be r«'daced and tjieir forts taken (cnc of thes'* hvs alrcacy fallen;) and that when these things bavc been accomplished, “there will bo a survey of the frontier Wuds and a determi- nation of tho new bj«ndary.” But there i* one point to which sagacious jour- nalists in London call attention, in view ot the pojsible results of this new cjnquest. There is danger of a new mutiny. The London Daily Nows frankly gays: “The dang/*rs to ouriclves arise from three .sourc’9 Any demonstration against Bhootan is likely to rouse the hill tribfs all along our north frontier, atd bring on a repetition ot the miserable warfare in the swampy region in which .he soil and the w.^tcrs are the allioo of the ene my.

Stherman’t March.—* * To aocomplish anything dcoisive, therefore, Sherman must continae bis march through the eonntry, taking roufe4he greet railway ocntres—Charlotte, Greensboro' and Daoville. We ehould not be BU'priaed to hear that, from Columbia he has marched on Charlotte; not that, in a few dajs, he will have possessed himself of that p'ace But then dangers begin to thicken around him. Th» very evacuatione which his movements may force will add to the effective strength of our army in the field. Every day's march will weaVen his forccs snd strengths en ours, and ho will finally rcacb a point where he will bo compeMed to give battle under oireum- stanee.s altogether adverse to him and favt>rable to ufi Hifl mjrch resembles, in many rcspects, tba'iof Bcrsoyne through the Stat^of New York, and it will have, we have strong reason to hope, a similsr termination. Gen. Beauregard who commands our forces in that D^partmeDt is Sher' man's master in all the arts of strategy and taaties. He. will give battle when he thinks it advisable to fight, or decnco it when he thinks th&t to avoid it is the proper course. And we may^depend on it, that wbat he thinks the proper course, will be the best that could be adopted. We do nut pretend to know where or when he patpOBes to meet Sherman, but we are firmly cod vinced that the yankce oommander, if he proseaute his march towards Richmond^ with t^e audacious purposes row indicated by hfs movements, will go t* his dijom We bf>Ii«ve that bis army will be aet and cheeked, and In such a position a ehack will be a defeat, and a defeat will be dcatr notion. We can state, too, with oeruinty, tbat the best iciii tary authorities eonour in this visw of the sitna« tion.—K*chmond Whig. Gftn^ral Butlcr't Cotton Speculaiiona.—The Norfolk correspondent-of the Philadelpbia Press gives tho following revelations respecting Gen Butler's cotton operatiocs: A singular circnmstanoc oonnected with Gen. Butler’s cotton speculations has come to light. It seams that the chief of Gen. Shepley's stsff, G. H Johnston, ref'igncd several months eicec, to enter, as Butici’u chief agent, into the business ot buying cotton from the rebels ic North Caro iina He remained at this long enongh to make over 8250,000 as bis share, which he deposited in tho First National Bank of Norfolk. A few days aso the Military Commission, instituted by Gen Grant to investigate tho proceeding" of General Butler relaliye t« cotfecn, got wind of- Mr John ston. Uc heard that they would call upon him toon; but not iotending to be outdone by tbcm, he drew all his money from tho bank and dceamp e4 in the Baltimore boat. They telegraphed to the nutboritics at Baltimore to arrest and send him back to Norfolk; but the shrewA Johnston did not go oa the loat farther than Ptf^tress Monroe, where he took the Washiogtoo boat, and landed at Annapolis. No one knows bis whereabouts, although he is anzicusly waited here. The Com. misaien has proven that Butler received two fifths of all cotton brought here, his«law one fifth, and middle men, cf which Johnnton was one, two.fifths, tho Government getting bat one.hall of that which was rightfully due it. Yon may cxpect even more aatounding revelations than these.

The government had, how. ever, just two weexs ago, taken the precaution to remove its specie, deposited there, amounting to several millions of dollars, and within the put tew days all of the dies and plates belonging to the Treasury D.’partment, together with the sup« plies of Treasury notes on hand, were safely con, y.-ycd away. The enemy being in pof^seesion of Branchvill#, Orangeburg, and Kiagsrifle, prccludsd move, ments upon the roads leading to Charleston, and an unfortunate accident upon the Charlotte road, (rutting off nearly all the rolling stock of the roa4 from Columbia, provented the authorities from making use of that avenue to save other valuabls materials in the city. A large quantity oi medi* cal stoics belonging to the government were there, oneobalf of which were paved, and the rest, far want of time and transportation, destroyed. The presses and fixtures hr prioiine Treastiry notes, in fhe esJablishment of Evans & Cogswsll and keating & Ball, were necessarily abandoned, together with tbe other, extensive machinery of those well known firms The first namwl estab. lishment alone had 102’printing presses, and was unquestionably the largest and best equipped pub’iiahifg bouse iu the Sauth. The enemy’s forces operating west of Cohmbla, reached the banks of the Congaree, opposiie the city, on Thursday evening, and threw in a num. her of shells, to which our batteries responded A portion of this column moved up the river dur. iny the night crossed tho Saluda and Broad riyera tho main trihauriea of tbe Congaree, which meet near Columbia—a few miles abeve the city. During this movement Gen. Beanrck. gard evacuated the city, and on Friday morning the enemy ent^^red and took possession witboit opposition. The enemy's forces entering Cslam- bia consisted of Sherman’s main army, a Urg* portion of which immediately moved up tbe Char, lotte road, whiie another portion haa moved dowa in the direction of Charlesto®. Beauregard is managing the situation with masterly dclibsration. Th« Orudti's of War.—One of the moat atro cious crimes perpetrated since the beginning of this war, was the shelling of Columbia, 8. 0 , by the enemy, without a moment's warning. We are jwtified by trath,iu saymg that two battori« were placed at commaading points on the west side of tbe river, and a bombardment opened uwn the city whilst it was filled with women and chil dren. Many of the houses were perforated by the missiles, and the flying of women and dren from the terror thus crcated, is said to have been a most heart-rending sight. No demted had been made for the surrender of the city. On the contrary, the enemy’s approach was silently and stealthily conducted. Some eight or ten per sons were killed by the fragments of shells thus wantonly thrown into the midst of helpless non- combatants W^e ate itformed, also, that afkr the surrerder of.thc place, squads of the enemy marched about the city fchoouug down such eiii- tzm as they couid find, urging as an excMe thal they might be stragglers from Beauregard's army. There is^ we hope, a heavy retribution in stora for such barbarous conduct, and that it is not far distKBt—f'harlotte Bulletin, 2^d. ^ Charleston.—On Thursday niglit, tha 16th in stant, our forces evacuated Charleston. Many guns must have been abandoned by our troops, but it is consoling to know that the Yankees got little else. Tnere was no eotton at Charleston to gladden Lincoln's heart, and the city itself was little better than a deserted ruin. Several tele graph operators, all of them men of Northern r>irth, did not come out with our forces, Imt re> mained to receive the Yankees.—Rich. Dispatch, Shewman’* Army.—Many difierbnt estimates have been made of Sherman's army. Some think he has 60,000 men. We know he has four'lml army corps and a strong iorce of oavalry. His corps will not number less than 12,000.—lb. The Expediticm from KnoxviU*".—We have reason to bolidve that the designs of the expedi tion, which was reported yesterday to have eer» tainly moved from Knoxville, are not upon South western Virginia, but that it is intended to pene trate North Carolina, and .probably to strike the railroad betweoa Salisbury and Charlotte. This force, consisting ofseveral thousand oavalry, and supposed to be under the command of Averill, was, as we reported yesterday, at Greenville, from which point the main stage road into North Owo- Una branches off, passing through Warm Springs gap. This appears to be the obvious direction of the expedition. From all we can learn there is nothing to tempt them in Southwestern Virginia, as they have almdy damaged the Salt Works and railroad there, and plundered the eonntry to such an extent that it is doubtful whether^ a^ considerable number of troops could be subsisted there.—Richmond Examiner, 2ktt.
