derived from the one at the South, and alluded to the proud position that Virginia would occupy at the head of the Confederate States. She would then be strong enough to dictate terms to the North, and by no other method could she so surely aid in on passed--Mr. Wise voting "no." The fourth resolution was then read, as follows: 4. The Territories of the United States constitute a trust to be administered by the General Government, for the common benefit of the people of the United SUnited States, and any policy in respect to such Territories calculated to confer greater benefits on the people of one part of the United States than on the people of another part, is contrary to equality, and prejudicial to the rights of some for whose eqUnited States than on the people of another part, is contrary to equality, and prejudicial to the rights of some for whose equal benefit the trust was created. It the equal admission of slave labor and free labor into any Territory excites unfriendly conflict between the systems, a fair partition of the Territories ought to be made between them, and each system ought to
Position of San Domingo. If any one will take the trouble to draw, on any good map of the United States, a line due south from the extreme point of the peninsula of Florida, it will be found — after crossing the inlet, sixty miles wide, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico--to intersect the Island of Cuba at a point about one-third of its length. The northern shore of the remaining two-thirds of that island winds, in a gentle curve, in a southeasterly direction, finally terminating at Cape Maysi. What is known as the "Windward Passage," a strait which connects the Atlantic ocean with the Caribbean Sea, separates Cuba from Hayti; the distance between Cape Maysi, the eastern terminus of the former island, and Cape St. Nicholas, the western terminus of the latter, being not more than twenty-five miles. In the western portion of Hayti, covering about one-third of the area of the island, is established the Republic of Hayti, Port au Prince being its capital. The eastern d
Secession in Court. --A day or two ago one William Chester was arraigned before the Kenlon (Ky.) Circuit Court, charged with passing a counterfeit bill on the State Bank of Louisiana. After the evidence was hard, counsel for the prisoner claimed that as the State of Louisiana had seceded, the court had no jurisdiction in the case. Judge Moore, however, ruled that as neither the President of the United States nor Congress has recognized secession, the trial would proceed under the laws, of Kentucky; and it did, resulting in the jury awarding Mr. Chester three years in the penitentiary.--Louisville Courier.
ls the Government, in an issue of force, to rely exclusively upon the Black Republican party for the supply of men and money. Whereas, on the contrary, the Confederate States will present one united and unbroken front, with no division, but all ready to defend their homes and their altars. In such an issue, there can be no doubt the fair hands of those patriotic ladies. The Warrington correspondent of the Pensacola Observer says the Alabama Regiment has been transferred to the Confederate States by Gen. Clemens; Col. Clayton has been reelected Colonel; Williams, Lieutenant Colonel; Steadman, Major. A man was shot at the redoubt on the night of the our forest trees, with the rifle. A correspondent of the Macon (Ga.) Telegraph, writing from Charleston, says: On the subject of revenue for the Confederate States, I am credibly informed that Collector Boston, in Savannah, is willing to enter into bond to turn out three million dollars to the Treasury the first year.
Intends to appeal. --Harvey Wash, who was recently convicted of counterfeiting gold coin of the United States, on a trial before Judge Lyons, of the Hustings Court, and whose term of imprisonment in the Penitentiary was assessed at two years, intends to take the case to the Court of Appeals. His counsel being now engaged in preparing a bill of exceptions, Wash has not been sentenced, and two other cases against him for passing counterfeit gold coin have been continued to the next term of the Court.
tructing Delegates. There was a glorious meeting in Louisa county, on Monday last. S. M. Hackett was called to the chair, and D. M. Hunter appointed Secretary. Amid the rattle of musketry and the shouts of the people, the flag of the Confederate States was raised upon a staff one hundred feet in height. Speeches brimful of the true Southern fire were made by Hon. D. C. Dejarnette, Rev. Mr. Waggoner, the resident minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and Mr. J. L. Gordon. Resolutio that Virginia, at the time of ratifying the Federal Constitution, was, and still is, a sovereign State; that the day of compromise is past, and the only question now for the people of Virginia to decide is whether they will unite with the "Confederate States" who are their friends, or adhere to the Northern, who are their enemies; and heartily approving the course of Mr. Dejarnette in Congress, and pledging themselves to support his re-election if Virginia is again to be represented in that bod

Americans the healthiest people in the world. --De Bow's mortality statistics, compiled from the last census, show that the people of the United States are the healthiest on the globe. The deaths are 320,000 per year, one and a half per cent. of the population.--In England the ratio is nearly two per cent.-- Virginia and North Carolina are the healthiest of the States, and have 638 inhabitants over 100 years of age.
