secession politicians myself, but the cause for which my brothers risked their lives, the cause for which so many noble Southerners have bled and died, and for which such terrible sacrifices have been made, is dear to my heart, right or wrong. The more misfortunes overwhelm my poor country, the more I love it; the more the Yankees triumph, the worse I hate them, wretches! I would rather be wrong with men like Lee and Davis, than right with a lot of miserable oppressors like Stanton and Thad Stevens. The wrong of disrupting the old Union was nothing to the wrongs that are being done for its restoration. We had a delightful evening, in spite of the clouds gathering about us. The Toombses, Popes, Mary Wynn, Mr. Saile, and Capt. John Garnett, our Virginia cousin, were invited to meet the general and staff. Capt. Garnett is one of the handsomest men I ever saw, with magnificent black eyes and hair, but seems to me wanting in vivacity. I reckon it is because he is in love with a fr

This Assembly reflects the sentiment of this whole Southland to-day, and such a statement could never be predicated of men engaged in an unholy or unrighteous cause. Indeed, my countrymen, it is impossible to conceive that a cause espoused and led by such men as Davis, Lee, Jackson, the two Johnstons, Early and their compatriots was wrong, whilst that led by Lincoln, Seward, Stanton, Sherman, Thad Stevens, and Ben Butler, et id omne genus, was right, and in the presidential election of 1864, when the issue between Lincoln and McClellan was distinctly made, as to whether the war then being waged against the South was right or wrong, nearly one-half of the Northern people voted that it was wrong, and in their platform denounced the administration of Lincoln in the conduct of the war as a usurpation, and said that the Constitution itself had been disregarded in every part, and that justice,
Thad Stevens and the Niggers. Thad, Stevens is determined not to let the contrabands eat the bread of idleness. As 300,000 Yankee troops go out of service in May, he proposes to supply half the deficiency by darkles.--These latter, therefore, are likely to have a lively time of it in future.

As 300,000 Yankee troops go out of service in May, he proposes to supply half the deficiency by darkles.--These latter, therefore, are likely to have a lively time of it in future. They though, no doubt, when they left their masters and went off with the Yankees, that they would spend the rest of their lives in idleness, which state is the genuine African's ideal of Heaven. They are likely to find themselves mistaken in their calculations, as wiser men have been before them. The Yankees do not know what to do with them. By carrying themHere is a very bright prospect for poor cuff, and it cannot fall to make him more in love than ever with the Yankees. The introduction of this proposition by Stevens indicates an assurance on his part, and doubtless on that of his party also, that the gap to be made by the withdrawal of so many men in May cannot easily be fill
