nd its boundless and fathomless swamps. The Mississippi above Memphis is securely guarded by swamps, by canebrakes, and by batteries of columbiads. All the South is secure from invasion except Eastern Virginia. All the South can, therefore, afford to concentrate its forces in our State. These forces are pouring in upon us in formidable numbers, and we think the cause is safe. The presence of the Confederate Government is equivalent to a host of men. The excellent generalship of President Davis will soon infuse system, order and confidence in every division and corps. When our forces are got well "in hand," and all things are ready for the fray, we shall then see what fate awaits the invaders of Virginia.
