Of course, he coul as of the danger of such a war. What is President Lincoln to do with 75,000 men when he has got tn poact--but, granting all this, what is President Lincoln to do with 75,000 men? House ships, butmit force of the States Navy. How then, is Mr. Lincoln to get to Fort Sumter? We commonly think ttion in view, what can be the meaning of President Lincoln calling out the militia? Seventy five tnts nor shipowners will place themselves in Mr. Lincoln's hands.

ut thirty thousand soldiers in and around Maryland, to hold that "loyal," Independent and sovereign State in subjection to the Federal Government. If anyone of Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet is good at figures, we propose the following sum for his consideration. If it takes thirty thousand soldiers to hold the little and "loyal" State the powerful and revolted States of Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas? Mr. Lincoln's war programme will require an army of at least five hundred thousand men to suppress rebellion, and then if he could suppress it, it will take a standing armyd thousand Northern men to supply their places.--At this rate how many years would it take to depopulate the North? If the Republican papers correctly indicate Mr. Lincoln's plans, we advise his physician to put blisters behind his cars, to draw off the hot and acid humors of his brain; for he must certainly be mad — stark, raving

Louisiana Volunteers. --Five hundred and fifty two Louisiana Volunteers a rived here yesterday by the Danville Railroad, and immediately proceeded to the camp at the Fairfield race-course. Six hundred more are expected this morning. The men all say they did not leave home for nothing, and are anxious to be put opposite to some of Lincoln's men. We hope they will soon be gratified. We never saw a finer looking body of soldiers than the above. They seem to have been expressly carved out for the work before them.
Refitting the White House. --It is stated that part of Mrs. Lincoln's business in New York is to make purchases for refitting the White House. On Wednesday she ordered a magnificent dinner service of solid gold, with the arms of the United States emblazoned on each piece. The purchases also include some magnificent vases and mantel ornaments.
ghout the South will soon be discontinued. A young lady of Norwich, Conn., writes to a young lady of New York:"Few of the Wide Awakes of this place have gone to the war. They are so affectionate that they can not leave their sisters and mothers" Two thousand troops have been sworn in the service of the United State in Western Virginia. Two regiments in Ohio are ready to cross the river at a moment's notice to defend Wheeling. On authority of Thurlow Weed, it is said that President Lincoln has resolved to bestow an important military position — probably that of Commissionary General — upon Gov. Banks. The Cunard steamship Africa, unloading at the wharf Jersey City, has on board 10,000 Enfield rifles for the United States Government. An order for the release of Mr. Joseph H. Spencer, of Baltimore, who has been held in confinement at Annapolis for a week past, was issued on Wednesday. A barn belonging to Mr. Wm. Evans, eight miles north of Danville, Va., wa
case. War was necessary to elevate the American character. The heroic principle still had existence at the South, but it was extinct at the North. Butler is a specimen of the only type of hero which the North can furnish. Sickles is another; Lincoln still another. Seward the false, Seward the liar, is the best type of statesman that the North can boast. Paradoxical as it may seem, none who know him will deny that John C. Heenan has more of the higher qualities of character than any of theres we have named. Heenan is a man of war in his way. Circumstances cast his lot in the lowest ranks of society; but, even in the sewers, he devoted his life to fame rather than to gain; and he is a better man to-day than Butler, or Sickles, or Lincoln, or Seward. The South was far from being corrupted by the principles of gain and selfishness. With Davis, Beauregard, Pickens, Wise, Beach, McCullough, and thousands of their stamp, it would be a libel to say that her race of heroes was ex
Washington's remains. The New York Herald, newspaper organ of a city which makes streets through grave-yards and shovels the bones of its fathers out of its way, with as little scruple as if they were the bones of dead horses, is greatly horrified at the reported removal of Washington's remains by the hands of his descendants, from the approach of invaders, who, treating their own ancestors with so little respect, and threatening all manner of outrages upon the South, can scarcely be expected to have much regard for the remains of the great Father of his Country. The Herald may as well restrain its Chinese menaces upon the occasion. Let it be satisfied with its own disproportionate share of official greatness. Is not a living dog better than a dead lion? Whilst the North has the possession of Abraham Lincoln, why should it covet the South the mouldering dust of George Washington? However, there is no truth in the story.
e are as quiet here as possible, and are only stirred by occasional reports from your section. Lincoln's a block head is off our city, and we care about as much for it as we did for his wayside spee feed him," and we say to all of those poor "hungry shriving souls, that feed upon the wind" of Lincoln's promises, to come to us, and they verily shall be fed. Some Kentuckians here seem to think that their State will not yet unhitch from Lincoln, but I think differently, be that as it may, we can get along without her. Lincoln has already ordered the President of the Nashville and LouisviLincoln has already ordered the President of the Nashville and Louisville Railroad not to convey over his road anything for the seceded States, but whether this order will be obeyed or not, we shall see. We shall freed only one article that Kentucky raises, and you in y know what treachery is, and they can see, and do see it sticking out so prominently in all of Lincoln and Seward's short reign, that no honest man or nation can do otherwise than execrate the whole
n every afternoon to witness their superior drilling. Impudence and rascality seems to be the order of the day with the Government at Washington, as is again exhibited in the landing of troops at Hampton, where it is rumored they are disturbing and harassing peaceable and unoffending citizens, and from witness, it is conjectured, they will proceed by land to Richmond, where their intentional doings can only be inferred from what they have time and again openly declared them to be. Lincoln seems to still persist in refusing not only Confederate States ships permission to pass Old Point, but he demurs in granting British ships that privilege, and in all probability will continue to do so until the Old Lion gets fully mad, springs to his feet, and brings a rear that will make the Ape quake with terror, and his "rotten fleet" return home. By the afternoon train from Petersburg which arrived here at 6 ½ o'clock, Capt. Vickety, of the N. L. A. Blues, received eight fine horse
He desired the preamble and resolution read and entered on the Journals. Resolution authorizing the Governor to use all the porters of the State, civil and military, consistent with the Constitution, to protect the persons and property of our citizens, and to mountain and defend the honor of North Carolina: Whereas, The Constitution of the United States has been entirely converted and to Government has been constituted into a military despotism by the sul the Administration of Abraham Lincoln, and, whereas, the said Abraham Lincoln has promulgated a proclamation declaring the ports of North Carolina in a State of blockade, and directing our ships, engaged in lawful commerce, to be seizes, and whereas, such measures are, by the laws of civilized nations, only to be resort o against a foreign State, and one against war has been decided; and, whereas, North Carolina has no alternative consistent with her safety and honor, but to accept the position thus assigned to her as bein
