with truth that-- "The South has never yet patronized its own educational literature, an assertion which may be easily proved by comparing the sales of two or three prominent text-books by Northern authors, with works of the same character and equal merit, the product of Southern intellect and industry. The publishers of Smith's Grammar send annually to the Southern States 60,000 copies of that work; Barton's, a work written by an Alabamian, does not reach one-third that circulation; Butler's, a Kentucky book, scarcely one-third; and that of McRoberts, one of the best ever published, sells at the rate of perhaps 2,509 per annum. Brown's, Wells', Weld's, Frost's, Kirk, ham's and Fowler's, all written and published by Northern men, circulate extensively in the South, to the exclusion of those Southern books we have named. Nor is this difference between the circulation of Northern and Southern books confined to Grammars.--The talented Caroline Lee Heintz, whose labors in the fie

An Execrable military Despot. The order of General Butler, said to have been issued recently in New Orleans, is the most brutal and atrocious act of the military despotism extended over so much of the South. It will be found noticed elsewhere in this paper. Butler is a low, vulgar trickster in politics, and must be socially a brute. Yet he has so much of cunning and shrewdness that we are almost inclined to doubt the authenticity of the paper attributed to him. That Gen. Beauregard shouButler is a low, vulgar trickster in politics, and must be socially a brute. Yet he has so much of cunning and shrewdness that we are almost inclined to doubt the authenticity of the paper attributed to him. That Gen. Beauregard should have called to it the attention of his army, however, is strong proof that he knew it to be genuine. Again, it may not be very surprising that the man who threatened the people of Baltimore with, assassination by servile agency, should issue even such a paper as this. It will indeed shock the civilized world; and the man whose arm will not feel nerved by it to strike a heavier blow upon the enemy, must not only be base born, but dead to all the instinots of humanity.
Election of State officers. --Our citizens will bear in mind that they will be called upon on Thursday next to elect a Sheriff and Commissioners of the Revenue for the City of Richmond. H. K, Ellyson is a candidate for Sheriff; and John M. Francisco, C. C. Johnson and Frederick Butler candidates for Commissioners of the Revenue for the several wards in this city.
State election. --An election was held yesterday for a Sheriff of the city and three Commissioners of the Revenue. Henry K. Ellyson was chosen Sheriff, and John M. Francisco Commissioner of the Revenue for the 1st Ward; Cadmus C. Johnson for the 2d Ward, and Frederick Butler for the 3d Ward, in place of Geo W. H. Tyler, dec'd. The vote polled was a very small one.
rutal soldiery, is said to have fired our army, and a feeling skin to desperation exists to drive back the minions of a Government that will tolerate such a representative. When a fight does occur in the South, but little favor will be shown the invaders, and they will be met by men who feel that there is hardly a shade of difference between death itself and the ignominious life that would follow the success of the Federal forces in the impending conflict. Nothing inflames a man sooner than the invasion of the sanctity of his own home, and this threat of Butler's will so fire the Southern heart that in every future engagement the soldiers of the North will be met by men who will cherish a keen recollection of a threat which has no precedent in the history of modern civilization. The Rev. Dr. Palmer, of New Orleans, one of the most eminent divines of the whole South, recently delivered an address to the army at Corinth on this subject, which is said to have stirred them deeply.
From Corinth. Mobile May 22. --A dispatch dated Corinth, yesterday, says: Skirmishing continued yesterday without important results. Our forces shelled the enemy out on the Farmington road. No casualties on our side. The loss of the enemy is unknown. The indications portend a battle near at hand. Indeed, the conflict may being at any moment. A heavy rain this morning postponed movements. Butler's infamous order has fired our army. Rev. Dr. Palmer delivered an address to our troops, which stirred them deeply. A Federal spy will be shot to-day. [Second Dispatch] Mobile May 21. --A special dispatch to the Advertiser, from Corinth, last night, says: There was general picket skirmishing on our right and left lines. On the left, the enemy threw a number of shells without damage. On our right, several casualties occurred. Among the killed is Capt. Richards, of the 31st Mississippi. The enemy suffered much. A general engagement is ex
ct that their general characters were not of the best, they were each held to security for their future good behavior. William, slave of Mrs. Gooch, charged with stealing a ham, the property of John S. Dodson, was ordered to be whipped. Security for good behavior was required of Austin Conley, charged with being a person of evil fame, name and reputation. William Heath, sent on for examination before the Hustings Court on Saturday upon the charge of stealing a mule and cart from Mrs. Nancy Heath, was again before the Mayor on yesterday, charged with obtaining one thousand dollars, under false pretences, from Frederick Butler. This offence having been committed in Hanover county, the Mayor turned over the case to the authorities of that county. John Kloss was charged with receiving a grate, which was stolen from Francis Childrey, knowing the same to have been stolen. The accused proved that he bought the property from Childrey's son, and was therefore discharged.
