to the bill reorganizing the clerical force of the Treasury Department. The House proposed to strike out the provisions of the bill requiring the Secretary of the Treasury, in the appointment of female clerks, to give the preference to the wives and daughters of soldiers, and to insert in lien thereof a clause authorizing the appointment of females whose labor is necessary to their support. After a long secret session, the Senate took up the resolution prescribing the seal of the Confederate States. The motto was altered so as to read, "Deo Vindice, " and the resolution was then adopted. In the House, the closing hereof the session are being given to the public business in secret session. Much of this business is of a character to require secret action, relating as it does to the conduct of the war and our relations with foreign powers. When the time arrives for its disclosure, the injection of secrecy will be removed. We understand that several important hills were yest
The Daily Dispatch: April 28, 1863., [Electronic resource], The powder mills in the Confederate States. (search)
The powder mills in the Confederate States. The London Times, of March 18th, has another direct correspondence from the rebel States, dated Augusta, January 26th. It is written (says the Cincinnati Enquirer) in the usual style of the Confederate correspondence of the Times, more eulogistic of the rebels than even the rebel papers are themselves. The following account of the powder mills established by the Confederate Government contains come valuable information: When, upon the 13th of April, 1861, Fort Sumter surrendered to General Beauregard and the Confederates, not one single pound of gunpowder was anywhere manufactured in the Confederacy. A rigorous blockade of the seaports of the South was immediately commenced, through which the principal ingredient of gunpowder (saltpetre) had to be largely sucked in. At this juncture it seemed advisable to President Davis to instruct to Colonel Raince, formerly an officer of the United States army, the responsibility of planning
The Daily Dispatch: April 28, 1863., [Electronic resource], What the United States is Fighting for. (search)
What the United States is Fighting for. The New York correspondent of the London Times, noticing the extraordinary powers given Lincoln by the United States Congress. says: These measures have a more logical foundation than any baseless hope of the re-annexation of the South. They are intended for the subjugation and the consolidation of the North. The danger has long been appreciated in all its magnitude by the reason as well as by the instinct of the Northern people, and the process of disintegration would not stop with Southern independence, but would extend to the North and West, and if the principles of Secession were once admitted for any part of the late Union, it could not be successfully resisted for any other. Hence, the President has been invested with these extraordinary powers in order that he may his in the bud any attempt on the part of the Western or middle States either to throw in their fortunes with those of the South, or to set up for themselves.

A chaplain dismissed for speaking of Gen. McClellan. --The Falmouth correspondent of the Providence Journal informs the good people of Rhode Island that the Rev. P. H. Burkbards, chaplain to the 1st regiment. United States Surgeons, has been dismissed from the service by the President. The cause of this unceremonious treatment was a speech which the reverend gentleman made to his former congregation, at Schenectady, N. Y., in which he depicted the dangers he had passed, and accidentally alluded to "Gen. McClellan's high military qualities." For this he was summarily furnished. The dismissal from the service of Lieutenant Edgerly, for voting the Democratic ticket, is a worthy counterpart to this manifestation of Presidential displeasure. The New York Zei calls these proceedings "a means of "--Philadelphia Age.

The introductory sermon was preached Wednesday evening by the Rev. George Woodbridge, of Richmond, from the 6th verse of the 13th Peaim. It was an interesting and instructive discourse. The President of the Society. Hon. Joseph. H. Lumpxin, being prevented by Providential causes from attending, and neither of the Vice-Presidents being present, the Rev. T. V. Moore, D. D., was called to the chair. Members of the States of South Carolina, Virginia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia, had their names enrolled.

d treason. Mark it! Take it to your heart of hearts! Like some hideous nightmare your dream of utopian, aristocratic life, shall go out, it may be in blood — surely in disaster and disgrace." [from the New York Herald.] "Our brothers of the seceded States had best acidly, if they would act well. No one in the North anticipates a longer war than one or three, or, at farthest, six months. At the end of that period we shall, in all human probability, behold the carcass of the Confederate States hung from the dome of the Capitol at Washington, with Davis and Stephens on each side of it, instead of the flying and triumphant folds of the Confederate flag. We submit the case to the rebel. War Department. It is not yet too late. A little grace, a little patience, and a great deal of mercy, await the return and repentance of sinners." [from the New York Times.] "The war will end by the 4th of July. One column of 50,000 men to Richmond. Another column of 50,000 men to t
