The Northern army now in our front, will in a few months, be efficiently organized and well disciplined.
Its able commander craftily and surely bides the time, when the term of enlistment of our troops expires, as the propitions moment for his advance.
He believes he will then find our ranks thinned, our corps disorganized, and that he can pour his ions over our weakened battalions, and triumphantly execute upon our undefended country, the behests of the despotic adcocates of emancipation, who have inspired this orrid war.
Our existence as a nation, the defence of our homes and the honor of our women forbids us to be leggards now.
It is the solemn duty of every man to dedipate himself to his country, until every foot of Southern soil is purged of the pollutionof invasion, until this war is ended.
Wedare not for one moment relax our vigilence or ay aside our arms until we have discharged this sacred duty. By order of Maj. Genereal Holmes, Daerry H. Maury, A. A. G.
