have attempted to set up a Government in Northwestern Virginia, under the shadow of the Northern army. Following that shadow, they have dared to call for Virginia volunteers to fight against Virginians. We give below the proclamation, issued under authority from Governor Pierpoint. Men of Kanawha.--That Government of Virginia which was destroyed at Richmond has been reconstructed at Wheeling, and so acknowledged by the Government and people of the United States. At the call of Governor Pierpont the President has sent armies of our friends from Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana, and expelled our invaders from the East, headed by a lawyer ruffian, who in his retreat has left everywhere marks of bloodshed, fire, violence and pillage, carrying with him several unoffending citizens as captives. You contributed nothing to his expulsion. You are called upon now, by every consideration of defence, loyalty and patriotism, to rally. Our civil and military departments must be reorganized.
An M. C. From North Carolina. Among all the instances of rascality that the war has developed, nothing has exceeded the proceedings of one C. H. Foster, who, after narrowly escaping popular vengeance in North Carolina, fled to the North, and is now going about that region proclaiming himself a member of Lincoln's Congress, elected by Union men in North Carolina. Had, this man one spark of decency in his composition, his wife's denunciation, lately published, would scarcely have appeared; but he is doubtless the smallest of all the diminutive souls who have taken advantage of the war to make themselves famous. He is lower than Carlile or Pierpont. Foster is a native Yankee.
