ted on the South, her concessions, the failure of all efforts at redress, and the consummation of Northern tyranny in the sectional triumph by the election of Abraham Lincoln on the Chicago platform. He refers to the commercial interests of the North, the vast productive power of the South, and portrays the immense injury the NortSouth begun the war — that it had no right to secede or separate, no matter what its complaints, except in the mode provided by the Constitution. The election of Lincoln was not sufficient ground, he contends, since so many Southern Presidents had filled the Presidential chair. He denies the right of secession in a State more than a county or a town from a State. (He seems to have been a pupil of the profound Dr. Lincoln.) In short, he is an out-and-out Federalist — is against the cry of peace — for the vigorous prosecution of war; but declares that the North is not fighting for subjugation, but to bring back the seceded States to their organic condition<
be in progress. Different opinions are expressed relative to the engagement at Hatteras, and the brave boys at some of the forts below our city are eager for a chance to show their skill at gunning. Old Craney Island will prove a terror to Lincoln's ships, should they venture within range of our guns. On the defence of this small island, now so well fortified and so handsomely improved, depended the safety of the "old borough," and of Portsmouth and the surrounding country in 1813, and should Lincoln's war vessels open upon our fortifications, our safety may again, in a great measure, depend upon the strength and power of its batteries. Now, as in the last war with Great Britain, it is supposed the enemy may attempt a landing at some point on the bay shore; but the attempt, nearly half a century ago, was, unfortunately for John Bull's fighting men, made at Craney Island, which, as is well known, was defended in a manner that reflected lasting honor upon the noble band of
The army and money Votes of the Federal Congress.[from the London Times, Aug. 19] The armies of Xerxes and the wealth of Solomon would hardly sustain a comparison with the hosts of men and mountains of money which — at any rate, upon paper — are placed at the command of President Lincoln for the suppression of the Southern Confederacy.--We may venture, perhaps, to pass without too rigorous a scrutiny the bold, though some what gasconading, vote by which the intelligence of the defeat at Manassas was received in Congress. The millions so precipitately offered represented, probably, the patriotic resolution of the North to spend its last dollar in the preservation of the Union; but, without pressing these loose figures to their literal import, we are really astounded at the conclusions which are forced upon us by recent reports. It used to be thought that this country had attained an unhappy but unapproachable eminence in national indebtedness. Half our entire expenditure in or
ur Northern exchanges, received up to Thursday's date, we make up the following extracts, showing the growing feeling in Lincoln's dominions for a speedy and peaceful settlement of the political difficulties which now envelop us: Now the female responsibility. How long these persecutions are to be continued, we cannot imagine; but the public shall know what Lincoln has inaugurated. Peace meeting in Harford county. Pursuant to a published call for the assembling of the peoplehe policy of the Black Republican party, the past as well as the present; could see no difference between John Brown and Lincoln, except that one represented and led on a small force, the other a very large one; wished for a speedy termination of ourtherners who now congregate at Washington.

Lincoln's war on the press. --In the course of the article in Saturday's Dispatch, upon the suppression of the Philadelphia Observer by order of the Federal Government, and the escape of its venerable editor to this city, it was stated, inadvertently, that the Observer was the only religious paper at the North that did not yield, when the war broke out, to the outside pressure, and give its support to the iniquitous measures of Lincoln.--The same paper containing this notice published an extract from Freeman's Journal, of New York, which shows that, that paper (Catholic) has been the firm opponent of the war, and the measures of Lincoln to sustain it, Lincoln to sustain it, and it has been forced to abandon its position by the virtual suppression of its publication. The editor, however, while yielding to the power of the tyranny over the press, changes the name of his paper to "Freeman's Appeal," and by his comments on the occasion fires a parting shot into the Administration which must make an impre
The sugar crop. --We are happy to learn that should the season continue propitious, and no premature frosts damage the crop, the sugar production of the South will, in all probability amount to five hundred thousand hogsheads, which is eighty thousand more than was ever produced before; two hundred and fifty thousand more than the consumption of the Southern States, and very little short of the entire consumption of the old Union. Until Lincoln can blockade the favor of Heaven and the fruits of the earth, the South can laugh his fleets and armies to scorn.
the news we get is what is picked up from persons traveling through the country; Gen. Fremont is making formidable arrangements around this city, digging entrenchments and building fortifications around the Fair Grounds and the Lafayette Park, the latter eternallly ruined, the grove killed and the trees ruined. The Democrat of this morning says that Siegel and his staff were mustered out of service on Thursday evening last. I don't understand it. It is generally believed that the run from that fight is confirmatory of the great and signal defeat of Lincoln's army, and Siegel's flight at thirty miles per day made, it impossible for his enemy to catch him. If the Confederates had left the field, the wounded would have been left at the mercy of wolves and dogs, and therefore it was necessary to remain to render the duty of Christiana to the dead, dying and wounded. McCulloch took 3,500 stand of arms, ammunition for a year's supply, and sugar and coffee and other provisions.
