oy and sadness, happy meetings and sad farewells. It is a gratifying sign of the times that our Legislature in a manner so pointed declined to interfere with the rightful duty of Congress in "raising and supporting armies." If Congress will respond to this proper refusal of our Legislature, and pass at once an adequate military bill, then may we hope, ere long, to see the army placed upon a permanent war footing for the war, and with our currency improved, we shall be enabled to defeat Lincoln for the succession, and thus pave the way to an honorable and lasting peace. Howe's bill in the Yankee Congress to raise a mob composed of a million of men, and the "reserve" force bill in this State, are on a par. Neither of them have any claim to the serious consideration of either side. Both are impracticable, and unwise if practicable. Let Gen. Lee. I pray, be retained in command of all the troops necessary to the defence of Virginia. I still think he is equal to any command, and I
secession, only one may possibly be fulfilled. The promise referred to is the case of Mr. Toombs of Georgia, who, it will be remembered, said he would yet call the his slaves at the foot of Bunker Hill Monument.--Mr. Botts thinks that if President Lincoln will collect the slaves of Mr. Toombs, and permit him to visit the North, the prophecy may be fulfilled.

The following are a portion of the in Mr. Smith asked whether Kentucky did not, after the assurance of the proclamation, give fifty- nine thousand majority for the Union and the enforcement of the laws?

Mr. Mallory said the voice of Kentucky, as expressed through her Legislature and Convention, was that he should stand by the State thr
It is said that Butler was in Newbern last week, and that a number of the citizens have taken Lincoln's amnesty oath and accepted his "pardon."--The Raleigh (N. C.) Progress says that there are few people left in Newbern now who could benefit the Confederate cause by affiliation with it; so Butler did not make much. Maj. Cummings, Chief of the Subsistence Bureau in Atlanta, has received instructions to enter the market as a purchaser, under the prevailing prices current. This will be likely to obviate the difficulties now resulting from impressment. Capt. Chas. H. Dimmeck, in charge of the defences around Petersburg, Va., has been presented with a horse and equipments by the citizens of that place. Two hundred and sixty-five Yankees, captured by Gen. Longstreet in East Tennessee, passed through Lynchburg Thursday night en route for Richmond. The young ladies of the Southern Female College, at Petersburg, Va., recently sent two barrels of sorghum molasses to
dies being out sequency washed up by the waves. They were frozen to death. No engagement of consequence has occurred on our coast since the fall of Eschorazo. Since the 1st inst. we have experienced the coldest weather known for many years. It is believed that nearly all the stubble in the sugar cane has been frozen out. The people have learned to look reverses squarely in the face, and they evince a determination to fight it out, no matter what odds, or under what difficulties. Texas will not succumb, even if every other The proclamation of Lincoln excites hardly a thought. The health and spirits of our troops are good, and the organization of the army is thorough. Veterans are in command of every brigade, and many of the regiments are from eight hundred to a thousand strong. In a word, Texas is all right. The enemy has in two months taken no point that was regarded as defensible, and intended to be defended. They will not attempt to do so with less than two to one.
