Doc. 61.-Gov. Pettus' proclamation. Executive office, Jackson, Miss., June 23, 1861. Whereas, it is probable that Mississippi will be called upon to put forth her full military strength; and whereas, arms manufactured specially for war cannot be secured in sufficient numbers to arm all who are willing and anxious to take part in the present conflict, I have deemed it proper and necessary to the defence of the State, to call the attention of the people to the fact that they have in tharrelled shot-guns, (for they can be made as efficient as muskets or rifles,) and hold themselves in readiness to move at an hour's notice. If seconded in these measures, as I hope and believe I shall be, by the gallant men of Mississippi, we will then be able to send our insulted, invaded, and outraged friends of the Border States all the aid they may need, and have arms enough left to make Mississippi a land of fire to an invading foe. John J. Pettus. --Jackson Mississippian, June 25.
Doc. 125 1/2.-message of Governor Pettus. The Mississipppi Legislature convened at Jacksonville on the 25th of July. The Nashville papers of the 28th give the following extracts of the Governor's Message:-- It affords me pleasure to announce to you that the revolution which you inaugurated last fall has so far been prosperous and successful. The people of this State have united in approving your action and sustaining the Confederate Government, with a unanimity which surpasses thest:-- Victory has so far crowned the efforts of our armies. The God who loves justice and defends the right seems to have inspired the Confederate generals with wisdom and our troops with valor. But, while rejoicing over our victories, we are called to shed tears over the fallen brave who have watered the tree of liberty with their patriot blood. Mississippi will remember and honor their names. May the God of Justice give success to our arms and safety to our sons. John J. Pettus.
