he laws of war by the North, there shall be instant retribution as near in kind as possible by the Southern Government. The war began in a spirit and with declarations that would have warranted the South at the start in hanging out the black flag, and in neither giving nor asking quarter. The infernal beastliness openly proclaimed in the streets of New York and the bellish cruelties threatened by the Yankee Congress warranted such a resistance on the part of the South as that to which Jackson sounded the key note when he shot down Ellsworth in Alexandria. The Grand Army scathe to Manassas with handcuffs and halters, and, if they had succeeded in that battle, the citizens of Richmond and of all Virginia would soon have understood the purposes for which those instruments were intended. It is true that sobered by defeat, they have since that time disclaimed sundry brutalities, so shockingly beastly that the whole world cried out against them, but have they ever relinquished their

It may be all the more grateful to the malignant Government at Washington in ordering him to Virginia, that this officer is thus descended. But the fact will, if it have any effect at all, only nerve the arm of our gallant and true Southern men to strike the surer and heavier blow when they meet him. General Pope commanded in Northern Missouri, and was more distinguished for his severity and tyranny towards those who fell in his power than for generalship. Lincoln possibly thinks these traits amongst the highest military attributes, and selects him to conquer Virginia. The Northern press say he is the man to meet Jackson. Well Stearwall will be glad to give the last grand commander with "three divisions" a chance for "existence" He has wound up the fame of no less than four Generals in the Valley, and, as misery loves company, he is prepared to comfort them by sending another to herd with them.
