We did not find it so easy to march regular troops through America even when its defenders were less numerous than they now are.--The idea of a land invasion with any detachment he cofrom that State are reported as having joined the Southern army, and the desire for immediate secession appears to be carrying all before it in the Convention and elsewhere. Virginia will carry with her, it is said, the other neutral States--North Carolina, Maryland, Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri and Arkansas--Again, in the Far West, things are looking badly for the Government. The spirit of disaffection has crossed the Rocky Mountains and reached the Colorado river. The Territory of Arizona
never made a greater mistake. We have a superabundance of bacon corn, flour, butter, lard and fresh meats. The high prices a few weeks past has caused everybody who had money to go into speculations in provisions; the consequence is that we have a great plenty. One of our largest grocers has just returned from Tennessee, where he went to buy provisions, and he told me to-day that there was the greatest abundance of bacon, lard, corn and butter for sale in that State, to say nothing of North Carolina and Georgia. The only article we may likely run short of in the next twelve months, is coffee. We hardly suppose we have a stock that will last us more than twelve months unless the people use tea, of which we have plenty. As for vegetables, they are actually so abundance and cheap that we have to feed cows and hogs on them. Garden peas at fifty cents a bushel, fine Irish potatoes (new) at per barrel of three bushels, snap, beans, artichokes, cucumbers, squashes or (as we Virginians

Mr. Henry Parrish, a
ere are now about thirty thousand soldiers in and around Maryland, to hold that "loyal," Independent and sovereign State in subjection to the Federal Government. If anyone of Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet is good at figures, we propose the following sum for his consideration. If it takes thirty thousand soldiers to hold the little and "loyal" State of Maryland in subjection, how many will it take to suppress rebellion in all the powerful and revolted States of Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas?
