s. Our Captain leaves for Richmond to-day, for the purpose of procuring arms and uniforms. Our company is now anxiously awaiting a call, and will no doubt gladly respond. A Member. Washington College, Va., April 24th. It is a historical fact that the students of Washington College, (then Liberty Hall Academy,) in 1776, marched, with Rev. Wm. Graham at their head, to Rockfish Gap, in order to keep back Tarleton from invading West Virginia, and now they are as ready to keep back Lincoln and his hirelings from invading the soil of Virginia. To-day we organized a volunteer company, called "Liberty Hall Volunteers." The company numbers 60 men. Prof. Alex. L. Nelson (Professor of Mathematics) was elected Captain; Prof. J. J. White, 1st Lieutenant; John N. Lyle, of Christiansburg, Va., 2d Lieutenant, and Lewis Summers, (son of Hon. G. W. Summers,) 3d Lieutenant. A large and beautiful flag of the Southern Confederacy now floats over the College, and rallying under that fla
ainst the South. They are pouring out their money to raise troops — it may in some cases be under constraint — in all it amounts to a tax upon the rich for the support of unemployed laborers. The merchant prince. Stewart, who has made most of his money by his Southern trade, is reported to have offered a million.--Mr. Wm. B Astor is put down for four millions contribution and ten millions loan.--These may be exaggerations; but can the gentlemen repeat? Revenues by duties are at an end — Lincoln confesses he has no resources. The Government, for the future, will have to be supported by the contributions of individuals. Those already made, large as they may be, will not be more than a drop in the ocean. "For years past, the Federal expenditure has exceeded seventy millions. This in time of peace. In a state of war, and with an army of 100,000 to defend Washington, the outlay will be doubled or trebled, or quadrupled. Who will foot that bill? How far will Mr. Astor's mite <
m the weight of his talents and military skill. But in vain. Neither official rank, nor promises of pecuniary emolument could move him. Gen. Scott went to Lincoln with tears in his eyes, and implored him not to issue his Proclamation. Nearly every member of the Cabinet opposed it, also. The President declares that he wrotes place on Monday. Among those who recently resigned at the U. S. Patent Office, rather than subscribe to the obnoxious test oath compelling them to support Lincoln and the Chicago platform, we find the name of Beckwith West, Esq., a nephew of Col. W. W. Seaton, of the National Intelligencer. At least two hundred clerks,have resigned their positions in the different departments at Washington, during the past week, rather than take the test oath. Many Republicans declare that Lincoln is under the control of two or three bad men-- i. e. Blairs, Jim Lane, Cassius M. Clay & Co. Rabid Republicans threaten that Montgomery and his Kansas ruffia
ho are now stationed at Cairo with two car-loads of ammunition and four brass twelve-pounders. Four thousand two hundred men more, and a still larger amount of munitions of war, were to arrive at the same spot ere daylight this morning. The first actions of the commanding officer of this vanguard of eight hundred were to seize the telegraph office, and detail a company to guard the bridge over Big Muddy, which is about eighty miles above Cairo, on the Illinois Central Road. Were Lincoln not known a liar, the assemblage of troops at Cairo might be taken as made with a view of simply protecting, not obstructing, the free navigation of the Mississippi; but when we tell our readers that the very passengers who informed us of the arrival of the troops also state that on all the lines coming through Illinois and Indiana to the Ohio river provisions, consigned to Southern buyers, who have actually paid for them, are stopped and taken from the train; when we recollect the action o
Secession and coercion. In an able article, written soon after the inauguration of Lincoln, by F. Grimke, Esq., of Chillicothe, Ohio, the writer remarks that the reason why the coercion of a State is totally repugnant to the genius of a Federal Union, is that form of government is founded on agreement, and union: to employ vifused to insert any provision authorizing the coercion of a State; and, with signal sagacity, omitted to insert any clause prohibiting secession. The course of Mr. Lincoln towards the Southern States, especially in view of this well-known fact, is more cruel and despotic than that of the monarchies of Europe, with the single excepe has never, to this day, acknowledged its independence.--Austria, the most thorough-going despotism of Europe, presents the only parallel to the policy which Abraham Lincoln has adopted towards the South. But Switzerland's independence has been made good, as that of the South will be, without asking the leave or license of a desp
dies of New York have organized a society to provide nurses for the sick and wounded during the war. The Chamber of Commerce have voted $100,000 for the use of the State for war purposes. George Law is out in a letter calling upon President Lincoln to open a route for troops through Baltimore, or else the Northern people will take it into their own hands. Simeon Draper and others have signed a memorial to the same effect. A large and enthusiastic meeting of the British residentsoney Wanted. Gen. Leslie Coombs has telegraphed to A. L. Saunders, at New York: "Mr. Crittenden is absent. Can we get arms and money for self-defence in the Union? When and how!" This dispatch was forwarded by Gen. Wool to President Lincoln, and Mr. Saunders also sent to the President the following communication: "If the State of Kentucky assumes the position of a strict 'armed neutrality, ' remaining in the Union--not permitting troops from the Confederate States
y the cannon's breath, and crumbled with the ponderous balls of this Government in a conflict that will be made, if need be, desperate as the bloody siege by which Corinth in story was lost and won. The Cabinet held an unusually lengthy session on yesterday — of six hours--in a discussion of the startling events of the past week. There is no doubt that it will extend to Virginia and the Border States every sympathy and co-operation in the war they are waging against the mercenaries of Lincoln, and prove that the young and vigorous Republic has entrusted her destinies to the keeping of statesmen and warriors equal to any emergency. In addition to the 32,000 troops for which a requisition had been made, the service of 12,000 more were accepted. One thousand brave and determined spirits, composing the Second Alabama Regiment, commanded by Col. Lomax, will leave this city on to-morrow for Virginia, leaving about fifty companies raised by this State awaiting marching orders from th
Inhuman Murder. --John Wilkins, late a seaman on board of Lincoln's ship Cumberland, asserts, with the ability to prove it, that Lieut. Selfridge, who visited our city under a flag of truce on Saturday last, deliberately cut down and instantly killed a man named Nathaniel F. Wolfe, of Maryland, a seaman on board said ship, for refusing to set fire to the ship United States at Gosport.--Norfolk Day Book.
