ber of boys, between the ages of 14 and 17, have organized a company called the Norfolk Young Guerillas, for the protection of our city. These young gentlemen have gone to work in a very commendable spirit, and elected their officers, as follows: Captain, H. Hall; 1st Lieutenant, S. B. Jordan; 2d Lieutenant, R. Granberry; 3d Lieutenant, A. Jordan; Orderly Sergeant, John Samuels.--They drill nightly. David Williams, one of the hands at work on the sloop-of-war Plymouth, at the Navy-Yard, was accidentally drowned yesterday.--He leaves a wife and several small children entirely destitute. Wm. H. Parker, Chas. B. Duffield, and a number of other gentlemen, leave here to-day on their way out West, to join Brig. Gen. H. A. Wise. Lincoln's serfs at the Rip Raps have been amusing themselves for several days by firing shell at our battery on Sewell's Point; but with no effect. They fall harmless. The health of the troops in this section is remarkably good. Macclesfield.
es that have already repaired, with burnished guns, glistening bayonets, and Cherokee knives of fearful dimensions, to the scene of war in the Old Commonwealth, two other volunteer companies have been organized and equipped in our little mountain city; one of them, the Cherokee Artillery, left for camp the first of this week, and the other, "Floyd Sharp Shooters," commanded by Capt. Hamilton, expect to leave for Virginia on Tuesday next; and, if I am not very much mistaken, the myrmidons of Lincoln will be deeply and bullet-ly impressed with the significance of the name of this last company. I doubt if any town in the Confederate States, of the same population, has as many well drilled companies in the army of Virginia as Rome, and yet other companies are about being organized. May there not be something in a name ? Ancient Rome boasted of her "legions" of fighting men, why may not modern Rome do the same — on a small scale ? From the military spirit and heroinism manifested by
ry standing, rushed to their houses, took down their rifles and guns, slung their shot pouches and powder horns, saddled their horses and put right off for Winchester, almost without a word of adieu to their families.--In a few hours the road from this place to Newtown, between this and Winchester, was lined with troops, baggage wagons, and our country militia, armed with any kind of weapon, some on horseback and some on foot, all fired with a solemn and firm resolve to whip the dastardly Yankees back from Virginia soil, or die in the effort to do so. One man, (Joseph Miller,) an old man with grandchildren, left his work in his field, leaving his coat hanging on the fence, rushed home, obtained his rifle, &c., mounted his horse, and put off in his shirt sleeves. I heard of him pushing on through Newtown without coat or collar, just as he left his house. Lincoln might as well try to turn back the waters of Niagara as to attempt to conquer such a population as this Valley contains.
The late election in Maryland. The Baltimore Exchange, in an editorial upon the late election, expresses the following views in regard to the present position of Maryland: "Most of the Northern journals have altogether misapprehended the import of the late election in this State, and are congratulating themselves upon it as an indication that the people of Maryland intend to adhere, henceforth and under all circumstances, to the government of Mr. Lincoln. Much as the "Union" men here have exposed themselves to misconstruction, yet the majority of them have certainly done nothing which warrants the Northern press in treating them as cordial and faithful allies. There are, it is true, some few individuals whose sentiments thoroughly coincide with those of the dominant faction in the North, and who would be content to witness the subjugation of the South. There are some few who are willing that this war shall be prosecuted until, in the language of Governor Thomas, the val
The Irish citizens of Georgia. The Atlanta Intelligencer, publishing lately an appeal from Col. O. A. Lochrane, remarked: The Irishman is noted all the world over for his love of liberty, generous and patriotic ardor, and his high sense of right, justice and honor. Our Irish fellow-citizens all over the South are responding nobly to the call of our Government. We understand that it is the purpose of Col. Lochrane to raise a regiment of Irishmen in Georgia to meet Col. Meagner's Irish Volunteers, who have joined Lincoln for the purpose of killing and subjugating our people.
Lincoln sends arms to our Volunteers. --We hear a rumor to the effect that a lot of muskets shipped by the Administration at Washington for Dresden, Tenn., and designed for the Union men of Weakley county, consigned to a commission merchant at Paducah, Ky., were, by accident, forwarded so Union City. The number of the muskets was five hundred. In the hands of Southern men at Union-City, they will be put to good use.--Memphis Bulletin.
ities of the North may petition their sectional Congress for peace; they may mourn the disasters which the war has brought upon them; they may cry peccavi, and, like the prodigal, imprecate the South for forgiveness and reconciliation; they may weep and wail and gnash their teeth in the lowest depths of self-reproach and remorse into which they have fallen, but it will all avail nothing. Congress is powerless in the presence of the arraies which those very cities have sent into the field. Lincoln and Seward themselves are but mere puppets, dancing to the motion of these armies, and obeying the caprices of the excited and fanatical masses of the Northern people. And even if Congress and the Executive should give way, the South knows well enough where all power rests in the hostile section, and will never be deceived again by the cities. The truth is, this war cannot stop until it runs its course. It is like a mighty locomotive with train attached that has lost its breaks and i
O. H. Browning, the successor of Senator Douglas, is said to be a particular friend of Lincoln's, and his appointment is generally esteemed unfortunate and disgusting in the extreme. The Israelites of Shreveport, La., have given substantial evidence of their devotion to the Southern rights, by forwarding to the Caddo Rifles, 126 men, an outfit of check shirts, drawers, and socks. Adah Isaac Menken is training horses at the North, with a view of going into the melodramatic line. She proposes to play Mazeppa and similar characters. On Tuesday evening last an express arrived at Woodstock, ordering the militia of the place to march to Strasburg, and there await further orders. Joseph C. Taylor, who killed Lieutenant Joseph G. Davidson, of one of the Tennessee regiments, a few weeks ago, in Lynchburg, is now in that city, awaiting trial. A man named Eugene Seyere was shot and killed in Memphis last Monday night by some person unknown. "Sons of Dixie" i

Lincoln's war message. It is reported that Abraham Lincoln, in his forthcoming message to Congress, will recommend that five hundred thousand men be raised at once, and two hundred millions borrowed, to carry on the war. This would be a larger army than France, with double the population of the United States, possesses at thiAbraham Lincoln, in his forthcoming message to Congress, will recommend that five hundred thousand men be raised at once, and two hundred millions borrowed, to carry on the war. This would be a larger army than France, with double the population of the United States, possesses at this moment, when it is believed that she is preparing for a European war. In proportion to population, Louis Napoleon would have to raise an army of a million to put the French Empire on a military equality with the magnificent programme of Abraham Lincoln.--The London Times complains that it is portentous of war in Europe, when NapoAbraham Lincoln.--The London Times complains that it is portentous of war in Europe, when Napoleon has at his back an army of four hundred thousand men, which, it says, is one to every one hundred of the whole population, or one out of sixteen, able-bodied men. To raise five hundred thousand men, would be bringing into the field 1-36th of the whole Northern population. Who believes that it can be done? It is an easy matte
