Since the dissolution of the Southern Con federacy there have been many contradicto ry newspaper statements of the numerical strength of the brave armies confronting encb other during the two last eventful cam paigns in Northern Virginia. Nothing but speculative opinion founded upon conjecture, had met the attention of the public upon this interesting subject anterior to tbe recent ap pearance of tbe report of Mr. Stanton, which gives a clear and concise statement of tbe aggregate forces under the immediate com mand of Gen. Meade, but directed by Gen. Grant, at the two memorable periods of the spring of 1864, and the spriDg of 1865. Ac cording to the Secretary’s report, Gen. Meade crossed tbe Rapid Ann on the 4th May, 1864, with 120,380 men. This army was re-en forced, says Gen. Grant, in his report, on the morning of the 6th, by tbe corps under Gen. Burnside, numberiug 20,000 men. It appears trout this tbst Gen. Meade had un der his immediate command in tbe second battle; (Wilderness,) after crossing the Rapid Ann, one hnndred and fifty thousand troops. From the best information we can obtain, says the Richmond Whig, Gen. Lee’s army commenced this series of battles about se venty thousand strong, and received no re-enforcements, accept the small force of three or four thousand that came from the Valley, under Breckenridgc, shortly before the battle of Cold Harbor. After the battle ot Spottsylvania Court House, re-in foicements, in considerable numbers, were sent to Gen. Grant from Washington; and upon his forrning a junction with Gen. But ler, he was re-inforced by the whole strength of the army of the James. In the mean while Gen. Lee had been compelled to weaken himself by sending Breckenridge back to tbe Valley, and dispatching Early, ■with some fifteen or twenty thousand men, to meet Gen. Hunter, then moving on Lynch burg. Thi9 reduction of forces was not com pensated by the accession gained from the garrison of Richmond and the lorce between Richmond and Petersburg under Beaure gard. In the last campaign which resulted so dis astrously to the Conlederates, a month before the final and successful assault, that is to say f on the Ist ot March, 1866, the Army of the Potomac numbered according to said report, 103,273. Mr. Stanton says this was the avail able force’,for present duty. The exact strength of the Army of the James,at that date, is not stated, but the number ot troops present for duty in the Department of Virginia, was 45,- 986, which added to the Army of the Poto mac, made an aggregate strength ol 149,269 men. It was understood in Richmond, ssyß the Whig, that, in addition to these numbers’ Gen. Grant was receiving heavy reinforce ments all through March, and it is known close of that month, he was joined by Gen. Sherman with his splendid cavalry. Thus, it appears, the force opera ting under the skillful direction of General Grant, around Richmond and Petersburg, nearly approximated, if it did not reach, 200,000. To oppose this tremendous army, compos ed mainly of veterau troopi, General Lee, upop the authority of the Richmond Whig, which doubtless derived its information from an unquestionable source, could muster no ra re than fifty thousand men. The number surrendered by him is stated in the report as 27,805 ; but it is believed that the number ou duty, with arms in their hands, the morn ing of the day on which the surrender was made, did sot reach 8,000. R may be the opinion of some that lofty thousaud men be hind such defences as had been constructed around Richmond, ought to have been able to resist 200,000. The reply is that the skillful manceuvering of Gen. Grant compelled Gen. Lee to so extend his lines that his works were at no point sufficiently manned. Where his line was first broken the men stood ten or fifteen pacea apart. We refer to these statements not to make comparisons disparaging to either side, but as matters of general and intrinsic interest. Tlie prowess of both armies has been illus trated on too many battlefields to admit criticism unfavorable to the reputation o{ either. Peon’s Citt or Acocsta Dibbctobt.— We have received from the publisher a copy of the above Directory, containing the name, business, and residence of every citizen, and advertisements of the principal business houses, ot out sister city, with a beautiful colored map of the State of Georgia, a com plete synopsis ot the Internal Revenue Law, the new Constitution ot Georgia, Railroad time table, with much other valuable matter. Tfle volume is very comprehensive, anti will be found useful iu the counting rooms of business men here and elsewhere, having relations with Augusta It is gotten up in superior style, and is alike creditable to the compiler and printer. Tbe Secretary of State on the 18th iust. notified Prov. Governor Parsons, of Ala abnma, Jhat he was relieved, stating that "the time lias arrived, in the. judgment 0 | the PresUleut ot the United States, when the care and conduct of the proper stfair* ot the Slate of Alabama may be remitted 10. the constitutional authorities chosen by the peo pie thereof without danger to tbe peace and safety of the Uulted States.’’ W likes’ Spirit ol the Tirnss, tbs Ist ding sporting pnpm of the oouulrv, hopes “lo set a 'Bill for lbs Ifnpiovsmeut ot lbs llorse,' brought tailori' the present I'migress, witch shell provide for, say staleeu, five thousand •iulisr prizes, to tie tun for to the vertous sections of lbs country tint s *i*nd Iweuly tlo>ii>mid dollar pier*, to Its given nl Wash- Inglon under tbe |«lranegs end surveillance ts ibe DoverMuool ’US’U *’ FawnMs JiiHiltsa* From ttsikl»|- <•■. Iu tbe Senate tbe other day, when Mr. Sumner called up bis bill tonfitmiug tbe j titles of Ireqrfmeu, settled ou tbe Sea Glands by General Sherman s order, to tbe laud, he moved its reference to tbe Military Com mittee, whi'ii was known to be friendly He was headed off, however, by six cons> r vative Union members, who voted with the Democrats to refer it to the Judiciary Com mittee, w hich committee is said to be very hostile to Mr. Sumner's plans. This fact is indicative of a more hopeful state of affairs In Washington than was pro mised at the opening of the session, and ex plains the remark of Senator Saulsbury that there were strong indications of a split in the Republican party. Another encourag ing sign of the times, indicating the existence of more patriotic and moderate opinions among leading Republicans on t.,e subject of reconstruction than have heretofore been avowed by them, is the following announce ment by Mr. Horace Greeley, a prominent and influenced leader of the party, of his present views on that subject. Iu a letter to the National Intelligencer he says: I desire and labor for peace. Peace be tween our coimtry and all others. Peace be tween the North and South. Peace betweeu white aDd black. We have had enough of war and waste, of havoc and carnage, lor at least ft century. HeDce I have long labored for true and lasting peace. I can conceive no possible good to our country, to any coun try, to any section, race or class, that is like ly to be secured or promoted by alienation between the President and tbe Congress of the United States On the contrary, it seems to me that every peril that now threatens U 9, every evil that now weighs upon us would be aggravated : every good put at hazard, every liopu clouded, if not blasted, by such a malign, untoward collision. I hove come here to do whatever I can, however little that may be, toward avoiding such a catastrophe, but I am not, aa your paragraph would seem to imply thut lam the advocate of any es pecial plan of reconstruction. I urge only that the President and Congress, each res pecting the others constitutional prerogatives and personal convictions shall freely anil trustfully cooler, discuss and consider with a profound deference for each others patriot ism, and an earnest desire to agree on a course of action which they shall mutually deem just and beneficent. Let the great problem of reconstruction be approach*! from all sides in this spirit, and 1 teel sin's that a benign solution will be speedily at tained. Our difficulties are aggravated by the fact that our p&sition is essentially novel. I can recall no parallel in human history. It is complicated by questions affecting tbe na tural rights of treedmen, and our moral ob ligations to them aa our human allies in the late momentous struggle. That we may promptly re establish the Southern States iu all their original rights and liberties without sacrificing those of any poition of the Ameri can people, is the earnest desire of Yours, Horace Grekly. MARITIME CONGRESS. This' is a most auspicious period for holi> ing a congress of the maritime nations of the world. The passions engendered by war have been quieted ; but it has given rise to many questions which have been unsettled aud require a more settled rule than has ob tained in the code of nations. The rightß and duties of neutrality have been unadjusted by that code, which has given rise to differen ces nearly leading to war between neutrals and'belligerents in the late conflict between the Federal government and the Confederate States. Tire 111 defined limits which have so long prevailed between neutral and belliger. ent rights, should no longer disgrace a code that has been designed as a rule of action between civilized powers. Such a congress should embrace represen tatives from all countries both of the old aud new woild, whose rights and interests are open to injury from hostilities at sea. Tie United States, Great Britain, France and Prussia constitute the maritime powers the most interested in the adjustment of such questions as are likely to be brought before such a convention. There is much cogency of reasoning in the London Saturday Review on this subject iu tbe following extract : “No amount ot vigilance, for example, could have prevented the issue from our ports of the Sbenabdoah , and, therefore, we could not be t ailed to account for her escape. But it is an injury to the neutral that its munici pal laws should have been infringed with the connivance of a foreign government, and this injury is sufficient to warrant a strong re monstrance on the part of the neutral. The safety of tbe maritime world is also imperilled by the underhand proceeding of tlie belliger ent, and tbe neutral is entitled to protest, not only in its own name, but in that of all neu tral nations. If such a course of unfriendly proceedings were persisted in after remon strance had been made against it, the neu tral would be justified in going to war witb tbe offending belligerent. In many cases, it is true, tbe iujnred neutral would not dare to go to war. But a nation which is too weak to protect itself may neverlbeleas appeal to a general feeling of what is right among civiliz ed nations; aud a nation that has a high sense of houor and dignity does not like to find the verdict of general opinion against it, even though it may be free from the appreheßsion that the number of its open and active ene mies is likely to be increased. It would be the business of a maritime congress to create this body of general opinion by laying down F in explicit terms that a neutral is injured I from whose port a cruiser has been launched by the secret contrivance of a foreign gov ernment. The experiment whether such a body of opinion could not be created, and whether it might not prove more efficacious if it were created, is at least worth trying ; and England will have great cause to rejoice if the meeting ot a congress to give this lupount of sanction and force to tlie decisions 1 oi neutrals were the result of our preseut un ■ toriunale difference with the United States. ” THE SENATE DEBATE ON THE PHKSI - MESSAGE. After the reading of President Johnson' 8 Message in the Senate on Tuesday, uu ani mated and rather excit’mg debate sprung up. Mr. Sumner characterised the message as being “like the whitewashing message of Franklin Pierce, with regard to the uttio cities in Kansus, aud was designed to cover up or cooceal certain transactions—a state of things infiuitely worse tbnn the transactions in Kansas.)’ On being taken to task by )(r. Doolittle, for tbe use of such luuguage iu re lereuce to tbe message of tbe Cnief Magi irate ol tbe Union, Air. riumnur replied, —"J have nothing to qualify, nothing to modify, notbiug in retract. In former days there was but oue Kansas to suffer under llieg^jo <vt-r Now iberis ara eleven Kausaases suffering only as una suffered, Therefore, Hit, us eluven are mure than <m«, so la lbs enornilly of the preseut Gum more than tbe enormity ol ibe days ul A’rankUn Pierce ’ I In- Massachusetts twuuior was sharply rs plied to by Mr> Iliiisi ut i i-oueciicut, and Mr Doolittle and oiber leading iteimblfi aus Tbs itobats was t selling, and disclosed Ure fa<>t that lbs vttreiiilsu art not ,^t svsa by tlit model sir members nl iu, ii own puily in I bill opposition In lire Piestlsui IN GENERAL. j Corn V»u< let Inti is aerioudy ill He has uever lully recovered from tlie injuries re ’ reived some weeks since by his full from his , carriage. Ex-President Frank Pierce was baptized sn<t confirmed in the Episcopal church at Concord. IS. H., a few days since. —S \V. Fletiu, the well known theatrical 1 manager of the Rich mood and Norlollc thea tres, lias mysteriously disappeared wilh i about -86,1)00 that didn’t belong to him. i —Mrs. Jane Hwishclm, the strong minded woman, is advocating the employment of females in the government offices. Like .Mrs. Bloomer, she “pants for fame," and is inclined to be mad that the sex are depriyed of the inalienable right to sing bass. —Gen. Grant's pay as Lieutenant General, amounts to $9,2+0 per annum. With a house at Galena, one in, Philadelphia, and another in Washington, we don’t see how he man ages to make both ends meet, especially when we remember that eggs arc forty-five cents a dozen, and butter about sixty cents a pound There is only one way to account lor it, and that is, Mrs. Grant must be an economical housekeeper. —Gen. Lee may be seen every day walking to his duties at the college, At Lex ington, Va., or taking an evening ride on his fttmous iron gray. He has been board ing at tire hotel, but his house is now being fitted up in suitable style for the reception of his family. Ex-Governor Letcher may be daily seen in the streets, quietly 9moking his pipe and thiking wilh his old triemls and neighbors. The burning of his house and furniture by Gen. Hunter was a serious loss to him, hut he is making a comfortable sup port by the practice of his profession. Some ot the Virginia admirera of Lee have recently presented him with a magnificent piano. —Tbe Dutch Ambassador at Washington has made a piteous api>eal to an increase of, pay on the ground of the increase of the cost of liviug in this country, stating that he is so hard up that he is obliged to give up his es tablishment aud take lodgings over a barber’s shop. But the government of the Nether lands baa refused his reasonable request. -—The interminable divorce case of Edwin Forrest, the actor, has taken a novel shape. He uppeals to the Supreme Gourt of the United Slates to set aside the action of the Supreme Gourt of New York, which granted his wife a divorce—his ground being that the marriage occurred in England, and the Courts of this country have no business to meddle with it. —lt is estimated that during the rebellion upwards of 2,000,000 bales of cotton and 30,000 boxes of tobacco were smuggled out of tue Confederacy, and aa immense amount of munitions of war smuggled in, through the direct agency of Mr. Crawford, the Bri tish Consul at Havana. The Naval Department has received ad vices from Commander Brasher, of the Paci fic Squadron, dated at Callao, November 21, stating that the Government of Peru had de termined to make eominon cause with Chili against the aggressions of Spain. The Government detained oue vessel at Boston destined for Europe, and another at Delaware Breakwater, hound for India, via Bnizil, for fire purpose of taking out the Government annual reports to our foreign representatives and naval officers. It is stated that Lieut. Gou. Grant will im mediately make ‘a touer of inspection through the Southwestern States, extending to the Rio Grande. _ t - J The lLnisd ot Representatives, on Tues day Ldst, passed the bill introduced by Mr. Washburn, of Illinois, “to facilitate postal, commercial and military communication be tween tho ytatesi’.’ which provides that every railroad, company shall henceforth be au thorized to transport mails, passengers and freight between any two States of the Union, auy attempt of a Slate to create or perpetu ate a monopoly of qucii transportation to the contrary notwithstanding. The New York Tribane, noticing the ac lion of the House on this measure, says i “We have but a faint hope that this hill will pass the Senate. The Camden and Am boy Company alone can afford to pay a quar ter of a million dollars to defeat it; and we consider that sum amply sufficient.’’ DnsraucTivn Fines.—A fire at Owensboro, Ky., ou Friday, 15th, consumed the block of buildings on the corner of Second and St. Ann streets, occupied as business houses by Messrs. Morris, Blair, Rosenfield, Rothschild, and others. Loss, $230,000. A destructive fire occurred on tlie the same day in Chicago. A number of fine build ings were completely gutted. The Joss of property involved is said to be $350,000, of which the insurance covers about one-half.
