that is avowedly at peace with the United States--is oppressed by the presence and insolence of an army of 20,000, what may we of Virginia — a State against which Lincoln is waging war — not expect at his hands? The foregoing facts and figures also afford matter for some nice calculations on the part of Lincoln's adherents. MarylLincoln's adherents. Maryland has a population of about 700, 0000; Virginia, about 1,800,000 I write from memory, without reference to the late census. Now, the question to be considered is: If a loyal State, (for such Maryland professes to be,) unarmed and at peace with the United States, cannot be kept loyal by less than 20,000 men, how large a force wilold Virginia, already in a state of armed rebellion, and backed by the alliance of ten other States as well armed and as defiant as herself? This problem I leave for solution to Lincoln, Seward, Chase & Co. So respectable a firm surely can work it out, and make their calculations and lay their plans for subjugation accordingly
The mortality among the Abolition prisoners now in Richmond is considerable. We regret this for two reasons: First, because each one of the parties named, after his release, would have been a living, walking and talking testimonial against Lincoln and his pirate band; second, because the parties have not had time to repent of their folly and wickedness, in combining with others to cut the throats and rob those who could not be provoked to return such conduct, like for like; thirdly, and lastly, because, dying so soon, they stand a chance of invading territory in whose broad limits they are not likely to meet any Southern man to care for them after they have been abandoned by their own friends.
Prisoners, &c. --The Central cars brought down yesterday eleven Hessian prisoners, including two belonging to the medical staff of Lincoln's "Grand Army," who were carried before the Secretary of War, and afterwards deposited in the prison depot. The Surgeons had been detained since the battle attending on their own sick and wounded — a considerable number of whom were yesterday carried to Culpeper Court-House for nursing.
ey were evidently oblivions. We presume it will turn out that citizens of the North own twice or three times as much property in the South as citizens of the latter do in the North.--The retort of the Confederate Government upon the Councils of Lincoln will, therefore, be most beautiful in its effects. That confiscation gun will surely kick its owner over — thanks to his own blundering. The Confederate authorities have initiated action in the promises, and the measure of retaliation will unqenses of the war. What is true of this city is no doubt true to a greater or less extent in other cities of the South. It may be, that in some cases the Northern owners of property in the South may be the decided and uncompromising toes of Lincoln's military Government and of the war it wages against us, and in such cases justice may require that there should be some discrimination made. It will not do, however, for such persons to come forward after the war, and claim that they were opp
of fanatical, the genuine offspring of heartless puritanism, are at this moment rushing down to destroy us Be prepared to receive them as they deserve, at the cannon's mouth, at the point of the bayonet. While keeping your powder dry, let each man look well to his musket or rifle, preserve it in good order both inside and without, the sabre well burnished, keen of edge and sharply pointed. These precautions are good, wise, even necessary, when we have to contend with the Vandalic hosts of Lincoln. Even now they are hovering above us, from Cairo, like as gathering storm menacing the earth with thunder. But let them come!--we will give them a similar hospitality to that which our people of old extended to Packenham and his British plunderers. Their blood will ensanguine our plans, and their bodies fold an easy grave in the yawning depths of the Mississippi. We have soldiers as brave as any of ancient or modern times, valiant as Leonidas do fending the pass against the Persons, as
nsisted of the flower of the Federal army, and if every Southern soldier had not been a hero, a dreadful defeat would have been given us. That their loss must be appalling; that the blow will so effectually disorganize their army, which was dissatisfied and shattered before, that they cannot, if they would, again assume the offensive; that Beauregard and Johnston are among the first commanders of the age, and their army, whilst fighting in the defence, must always prove invincible." While those for whom Beauregard and Johnston and their heroic companions are so manfully exerting themselves will appreciate the force and truth of the compliment paid them, they hope yet to see our army as invincible in offence as defence. When Col. Corcoran and such as he are reflecting on the disadvantages that attend their sojourn here, it is to be hoped that their ire will be mitigated against us when they reflect that it is all rendered necessary by the policy of Abe Lincoln, whom they serve.
by a courier from Rear Admiral Dundas, commanding the British squadron off Charleston harbor, notifying the British Minister at Washington that in accordance with instructions from his Government, be had examined into the blockade established by Lincoln's vessels at that point, and such examination had convinced him that it was ineffective, and by the law of nations null and void. His determination, therefore, was to enter the port of Charleston with his fleet at an early day, despite any pretended opposition that might be offered to his so doing. The facts the Admiral requested Lord Lyons to lay before Hon. Wm. H. Seward, Lincoln's Prime Minister, who is reported on the same authority to have "waxed exceeding wroth," and threatened the British Empire with all the vengeance capable of being bestowed by the Army and Navy of the late United States-- We trust these tidings may be verified. The fact of Admiral Dauntless only precedes the recognition of Southern independence by a few w
t. When Northern men come to reflect upon such conduct, how can they permit themselves to bleed to death, financially and physically, for the benefit of such a disgusting party? It has been ever and over again reported, and we suppose the fact is undeniable — that the rank and file of the enemy are principally composed of Democrats. If this be so, why do they enlist and serve under such a dynasty as that at Washington? We can understand that, at first, they were deluded by the hypocritical appeals to their patriotism and pride of country. But they must see now that the Union was long ago dismembered by Lincoln's own usurpations, and that its reconstruction is an impossibility. Why waste their energies and blood in a fruitless enterprise, and one which, if successful, would destroy State Rights and establish a consolidated Government? They must either desist from aiding a war which can only have, if triumphant, that result, or they must cease to call themselves Democrats.
phemous proceeding than this could not well be imagined. It assumes that a just and holy God, who "is of too pure eyes to behold iniquity," and who has declared that he "will by no means clear the guilty." would accept those infinitely false and foul offerings of infinitely depraved and wicked hearts, wrung from the trembling wretches in the hour of their consternation, and accompanied by no remorse or penitences whatever for the monstrous crimes which they have perpetrated.--The idea that Lincoln, with his soul stained with the blood of the hecatombs who were slaughtered at Bethel, Bull Run and Manassas,--with hands red with the murder of those victims of his ruthless lust of power --that He should appoint a day for the observance of such a solemn ceremony as that of "fasting. humiliation and prayer," is impious beyond the power of language to express. That ceremony, if it were to be observed by the authors and prosecutors of this war, would be a gross insult to the A mighty, for

Reported arrest of Nelson, of Tennessee --A rumor has been current for a day or two that the traitor T A. R. Nelson, of Tennessee, the companion of Andy Johnson, had been deprived of his personal liberty and cut short in his evil career. The Lynchburg Republican, of yesterday, alludes to the circumstance, and says Nelson was arrested in Western Virginia while endeavoring to make his way to Washington, to take his seat in Lincoln's Congress as a Representative from Tennessee. The report seems to be authentic, and we hope the traitor will get what he deserves. Nelson has no more right to represent a district of Tennessee in the Federal Congress than the Yankee Upton has to represent a district of Virginia. They are birds of a feather.
