y Southern hearthstone. We are in favor of humanity to prisoners, even under the aggravating circumstances of provocation to their annihilation which the infamous Lincoln Government is furnishing every day. But beyond the strict requirements of civilized warfare we should not be inclined to travel very far with the most uncivilized of enemies. They should not be permitted any of the luxuries which they claim except those of a spiritual sort, which, it must be confessed, they stand more in need of than any others. In charity to their souls, which are in greater peril than their bodies, we would let them have as many clergymen as they desire. It would, moreover, be an excellent school of practice for those of our young divines who intend to become missionaries among the Camanche, Pawnees, and Barbarians. A clergyman who could reclaim a New York Zouave might have no difficulty in evangelizing a whole continent of cannibals, and would soon eclipse the fame of St. Francis Xavier.
