ugating us! Why, we might lay aside the men, and all Abolitiondom couldn't run down the women even! (Prolonged applause.) They say at the North that we are alarmed. What cause have we to be so? When the Congress assembled at Montgomery there were only six States represented. Now there are nine, and every breeze that comes from Tennessee bears us news that her people are rising up unanimously against the usurpations of Lincoln. North Carolina--the State of my parentage, and I love her with a love next to my native State--she, too, is aroused, and her Convention has unanimously adopted the ordinance of secession; and these States will soon shine as bright stars in our galaxy. With such aids as these, and with so many brave hearts in our land, we can never be conquered! I have spoken enthusiastically, but pardon me. I can say nothing more. (Cries of, Go on! ) You will excuse me, as I have been speaking at every town on the road, and am quite hoarse.--Ohio Statesman, May 29.
worth to his parents. Headquarters First Zouaves, Camp Lincoln, Washington, May 23, 1861. my dear Father and mother:--The regiment is ordered to move across the river to-night. We have no means of knowing what reception we are to meet with. I am inclined to the opinion that our entrance to the city of Alexandria will be hotly contested, as I am just informed that a large force have arrived there to-day. Should this happen, my dear parents, it may be my lot to be injured in some manner. Whatever may happen, cherish the consolation that I was engaged in the performance of a sacred duty, and to-night, thinking over the probabilities of the morrow and the occurrences of the past, I am perfectly content to accept whatever my fortune may be, confident that He who noteth even the fall of a sparrow will have some purpose even in the fate of one like me. My darling and ever-loved parents, good-bye. God bless, protect, and care for you. Elmer. --National Intelligencer, May 29.
l provided for, the people all manifesting the most cordial feeling for them. And well they merited such treatment; for, besides that they came here to protect us, they are a splendid set of fellows — tall, handsome, and soldier-like in appearance, and dignified and gentlemanly in demeanor. They were immensely pleased with their reception all along the road, and particularly with the substantial compliments of the good people of Cameron and Belton. The citizens of Cameron were taken by surprise by the train that conveyed the Wheeling Regiment, but learning that more were on the way, they went to work and got together all. the provisions in the place, bread, pies, cakes, a barrel of crackers, meat, butter, and eggs, and had them all boxed up and ready for them. By the time the Ohio men reached Cameron there had collected from the surrounding country some eight hundred or a thousand people, who received them with enthusiastic demonstrations.--Wheeling (Va.) Intelligencer, May 29.
nderstand that you mean, in the language of Cromwell at the castle of Drogheda, to cut this war to the heart. It only remains, soldiers, to invoke the blessing of Almighty God upon your honored flag. It waves in brave hands over the gallant defenders of a holy cause. It will be found in the thickest of the fight, and the principles which it represents you will defend to the last of your breath and of your blood. May victory perch upon its staff in the hour of battle, and peace — an honorable peace — be wrapped within its folds when you shall return. It is little to say to you that you will be remembered. And should the frequent fate of the soldier befall you in a soldier's death, you shall find your graves in thousands of hearts, and the pen of history shall write the story of your martyrdom. Soldiers, farewell! and may the Lord of Hosts be round about you as a wall of fire, and shield your heads in the day of battle! --N. O. Picayune, May 28. --N. O. Delta, May 29
to state orally the provisions of the Constitution of the United States which make these principles the fundamental law of the Union, because an oral statement might be misunderstood in some portions of it, and I shall therefore put my opinion in writing, and file it in the office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court in the course of this week. The Judge added that the military authority was always subordinate to civil. That, under ordinary circumstances, it would be the duty of the Marshal to proceed with posse comitatus and bring the party named in the writ into Court; but from the notoriously superior force that he would encounter, this would be impossible. He said the Marshal had done all in his power to discharge his duty. During the week he should prepare his opinion in the premises, and forward it to the President, calling upon him to perform his constitutional duty, and see that the laws be faithfully executed, and enforce the decrees of this Court.--N. Y. Times, May 29.

uld stand by their guns. He considered the document too long, and thought it would not be sufficiently effective on those who were battling for the country. England was wavering as to whom she should recognize, and the Baptists of England, through Spurgeon and other preachers, should be apprised in the report of the position of their brethren. Rev. Dr. Gillette suggested that the words social meetings should be inserted, instead of private prayer meetings, which was accepted by the Committee, when the amendment was withdrawn. Hon. Wm. D. Murphy moved the recommittal of the report. Lost. Rev. Dr. Welch--I protest with my whole soul against the adoption of the report. It will put our denomination in a position of shameful absurdity before the world. On motion, it was resolved that a copy of the resolutions be presented to the President of the United States, and a collection was taken up to print it in circular form. The meeting then adjourned.--N. Y. Express, May 29.

in the army, have been busily engaged the last three or four days urging several measures upon the Administration. They ask the appointment of a mixed commission, with a general supervision of all matters connected with the sanitary condition of the army. Special attention will be given to four points, namely: The inspection of the troops, with a view to the exclusion of unsuitable persons; enlistment of a skilful cook in each company; employment of nurses educated by the Women's Association, and of volunteer dressers, composed of young medical men. The committee have been much pleased with their reception by the President and the heads of Departments, all of whom manifest a disposition to profit by their friendly criticism and adopt salutary reforms. It is not fully decided whether all the measures recommended by the committee will be adopted, but they will be fully considered, as all who have been consulted take a great interest in the matter.--National Intelligencer, May 29.
nt over to Northern views as soon as they learned what they were; and the worse portion were a mere banditti. The free blacks will hardly be sent North. It is announced that the Indians of three tribes have offered their services to the Confederacy; but they will be employed near home, no doubt, if at all. It is impossible to foresee what the campaign will be like, in circumstances so singular; but we may remember, while awaiting news, that the military reputation of the South, such as it is, has been gained in fields where there was no honor to win; and that the Southern vaunt is of the bravery, and not of the discipline, of the so-called chivalry. On the whole, these four considerations seem to point to a not distant conclusion, and to a desultory kind of conflict meantime. Tidings may be on the way to contradict or to confirm this view; but the facts on which it is founded seem to be as clear in their substance as they are serious in their significance.--London News, May 29.
