The Captain of the Cumberland. The Captain of the Cumberland, who fought his vessel till her decks went under water, firing as she went down, deserved a better fate than to serve Abraham Lincoln. He deserved to be a Southerner, and to fight under the flag of freedom. If, as we are informed, he was commander Smith, he was a native of Kentucky, a State which has furnished both belligerents in this war with many of the best fighting men. We rejoice to render tribute to a gallant adversary, and the manner in which he met his fate, showed that in the Captain of the Cumberland our own fearless Buchanan had a foeman worthy of his steel. Death is inevitable, but to die gracefully and heroically is not in the power of many. The man who dies nobly for his country only masts the universal fate, which he could not, under any circumstances, avoid; but dying as the brave know how to die, he bequeaths to the traditions of his household and of his country a name which sheds bright renown on
t Warren. "Union-sliding" Banks, who commands the Lincoln forces in Winchester, is now wreaking his vengeance upon the South by a system of tyranny almost unparalleled.--S the occupation of the Valley, a large number of its citizens have been arrested and to take the oath, or be sent off to Fort Warren. Among the latest victims of this rant's hate are Philip Williams, David W. Berton, and Robert Y. Conrad, Esq., who have been sent off to Fort Warren, there to remain, perhaps, until the termination of this unholy war. Mr. Conrad was a member of the late State Convention, and is one of the most prominent men in the Valley. At the time of his election he was a staunch Union man, and never consented to the separation of Virginia from the Federal Union until the action of Lincoln demonstrated that it was impossible for the State to remain in the Union without submitting to the basest degradation. Messrs. Barton and Williams have long been leading members of the bar in the Valley.
Reflection and penitence. A Chicago paper expresses the hope that the imprisonment of the brave Southern men now in Yankee jails will bring them to repentance and penitence. It is natural the Yankees should expect this Never knowing what penitence means themselves as, except when they have done a meritorious assion, they conclude that other men must be filled with remorse because they have resisted oppression and crime, and refused to permit themselves to be made slaves. What marble hearted wretches Southern men must be if they are not melted into contrition for resisting the benign sway of Lincoln, and protecting their property from plunder, and their wives and children from defilement and butchery ! The Chicago man ought to engage a hundred missionary evangelists to visit the Southern prisoners and press to them repentance for their virtue and works must for repentance, such as treason, lying, robbing, rape, and murder.
The Virginia. The Federal Government will undoubtedly go to work at once to prepare a dozen vessels to offset the Virginia. They have plenty of materials and men for the work, and it is not their habit to lie still under disasters, or, at one, two, or a dozen reverses, to give up all for lost. Therefore, now is the time for the "iron monster," as the New York Herald calls the Virginia, to follow up her glorious victory and reap its magnificent fruits. We observe that Lincoln has ordered an additional number of ships to Hampton Roads. We hope the Virginia will sink or capture the whole par.
