Another good sign; for it shows that the people of that city and for ten miles around it are so dangerously sick of Jeff. Davis that nothing but the civil law of the bayonet will keep them quiet. What a charming little city to live in has Richmond become under the beneficent despotism of Davis! What a beautiful illustration it is of the delights of that happy valley of Rasselas, as promised by Yancey with the millennium of his Southern Confederacy!

If anything further were wanting to dispel the last shadow of illusion, it has been furnished by the speech of Mr. Yancey, published by us yesterday.
