and of unlimited power will be required to correct abuses, repress discontent, and bring into the field the whole military strength of the Confederacy.
The large majorities for Lincoln in the United States clearly indicate a purpose to make renewed efforts to accomplish our destruction.
It is now contradicted that Lincoln has called for 1,000,000 men.
Three P. M. Cloudy, and threatening snow.
An attack upon the city seems to be apprehended.
