calling themselves civilized to have even contemplated. It is terrible alike for whites and for blacks; for it seems that, after exciting these black men to work out this unmanly revenge, the North does not propose to endure their presence. Mr. Lincoln, like one of the despots of the Old World, undertakes to transport the whole race, slave and free, to some territory which no white man desires, but which Mr. Lincoln will buy for them, that he may never more behold a sable face. All thesMr. Lincoln will buy for them, that he may never more behold a sable face. All these things are, as yet, but in their commencement. Some are only threatened; others are only tentatively begun. They promise, however, in their development, such scenes of horror as the world has never seen since men fought like wild beasts. Against such methods of war we protest at the outset. Against bloody reprisals, against the wanton destruction of those harbors which a beneficent Creator has given for the enjoyment of all His creatures, against incitations to domestic rapine and murder,

The whole civilized world, from the beginning of this contest, have recognized and acted upon the State rights theory contended for by the Confederate States, and which has up to this time been the accepted theory of the vast majority of the American people. In drawing the sword upon Sovereign States because they would not relinquish their Sovereignty, Lincoln has made himself responsible for all the horrors and tribulations of this bloody war. On the other hand, the South exhausted every measure of conciliation and forbearance before accepting the contest which the North was bent upon forcing upon our country. The South had submitted, for a quarter of a century, to spoliation, insult and ontrage, until they culminated in the effort of a sectional majority to reduce her to vassalage. Even then she only wanted to ballet alone. She negotiated an

The policy of permitting Brownlow to be escorted without our lines into the enemy's country, is freely discussed, and intelligent persons deprecate it as fraught with incalculable mischief. He knows every hog path, every distillery, every secret cave in Eastern Tennessee, and could give Lincoln a better map of the country than all his engineers put together. And this is not all. Tabooed in the South, stung to desparation by the low estimation in which he is held by every true Southron, and flattered and frowned upon, as he would be by the Yankees, there is no telling the pitch of phrenzy to which he would carry the already morbid fanaticism of the North. Should the Parson quit his hold on this world, his best friend here would say Amea to his exit. The 56th Virginia Regimen

He was in this city a few days ago, but it was not my fortune to meet him.--I shall not soon forget my last interview with T. A. R. Nelson. During the discussion of the Force Bill, enacted by the Federal Congress of last winter, one Kellogg, whitome an Illinois abolitionist, in a violent speech, unexpectedly bolted from his party. Senator Douglas was on the floor of the House; at the conclusion of Kellogg's speech, the Senator went up and congratulated him.--So did Nelson. The three entered a clerk's office, and we "smiled" with the rotund and jolly Kellogg. Nelson then grew eloquent, and uttered sentiments glowing with heart-felt hope and patriotism. Lincoln's madness is Nelson's sanity. He lives a quiet life in his mountain home, indulging his kindly feelings and cultivated liberary tastes. The time will soon come when Nelson will be a leader in the Southern "rebellion."
