Friday october 25, 1861, the Coutv the county ticket nominated at Bryan Hall yesterday with the full report of the convention which continued its session to a late hour of the evening will be found in another part of this paper. In the con test of men and preceding the convention it has been the policy of the to Mae to take no part leaving All to the delegates themselves. This is not a time for personal or partisan squabbles and we confess we have had no heart to engage in such an Arena. The ticket is before the people. We May have some thing further to say about it before the election. Mason and Slidell. The report comes from Keywest that messes. Mason and Slidell the Confederate commissioners to England and prance arrived at Cardenas Cuba the 16th, on the Steamer Theodora from Charleston. This is altogether More probable than the first Story of their sailing under flying colors in the Nashville and we see no reason to disbelieve it they Are now on Neutral soil and May sail to England at their Leisure under the Protection of a Neutral Flag. But what will the three fast steamers do that were sent out to Over haul the Nashville we More than suspect that tie Nashville Story which strangely enough the confederates were anxious we should get at the earliest moment was a Blind to throw our govern ment off the scent. Indeed it seemed singular at the Lime that a vessel of the draft of the Nashville could pick her Way out Charleston Harbor so quietly much More that she should undertake a trans quantic voyage. The Confederate com missioners Are now turned Loose upon the world. It remains to he seen what they will do. Col. Bakers regiment. The Federal loss in the action ofed wards s ferry where senator Baker fell while gallantly leading his regiment was much heavier than the first dispatches led us to suppose. The regiment which he commanded was made up chiefly Ore turned californians residing in Philadel phia. It was nearly destroy Din the at tack being assailed by 5,000 rebels. The regiment took into action so men and brought Back Only 184. There were killed 30, we undid 125, drowned in the Retreat across the River 21, taken prisoner 300 total 496. This is a severe blow. La is stated that col. Baker was killed by a rebel Dragoon who Rode close to him and fired five shots from a revolver each Hull taking effect. The Slayer was immediately brought Down by capt. Derriel who brought off the body of his colonel by heading a desperate charge of his com Pany for that purpose. Classics 31. Clay. A Washington dispatch Stales that Cas Sius m. Clay our minister to Russia has intimated to the government that in View of the Vas mess of the contest and threat ening Altitude of the rebels he would prefer to surrender As representative to Russia and enter the army in Active defence of the government the Cabinet has the subject under consideration and kentuckians Are anxious for the return of the Gallant Cassius. The fort Wayne Railroad. The Pittsburg fort Wayne & Chicago Railroad was sold at Cleveland yesterday under a foreclosure of its mortgages by decree of court and was bid in by or. Lanier of the Well known firm of new York Bankers be acting on behalf Ofa committee. The Price paid was two Mil lion dollars. The Sale was on the same Day ratified by the court that issued the decree. Load discourse. Our old Friend dead Sprowle of to Dunk City state of Illinois having reached Washington on a business venture writes us three letters which the inquiring Reader will find Worth his attention. They Are printed on the third Page of this paper and though written in Plain and homely style without great regard for the niceties of our language the embody some Sharp criticisms on current affairs and an unusual quantum of common sense.
