t, trying, and successful services that were ever rendered by man to the cause of human freedom, was a type of the Revolutionary men. They did not dream of improving their personal fortunes by the general distress, or fattening themselves at the public crib, whilst the great body of the people was enduring hardships and privation. The old Republic started right, but it was soon debauched; its political morality became as lax and its public men as bad, as they could be.--From Washington to--Lincoln; we need say no more. It will avail our fortunes but little, if, having escaped this leprous association, we continue to retain its principles and practices. If we do not make a good beginning, what shall be our end? If our youth is corrupt and tainted, what will be our manhood? In its President and Vice President the new Republic has placed the right men in the right place; in the principal leaders of its armies, it has been equally successful. If the people are true to themselves
it has not arrested the attention of any of the members of the Administration," &c. It is strange that he did not read letters which he found important enough to demand an official proclamation from the Department of State. The truth is, he did read every word of them, as did every member of the Cabinet, as a matter of course, to learn what policy the London Times, which is the great exponent of English public sentiment, would indicate on American affairs. When Russell came to Washington, Lincoln invited him to dinner, and, if we mistake not, Seward and other members of the Cabinet vied with each other in doing him honor. But alas! his letters have not prove what was expected, and, with every disposition to decry and degrade both sections, have produced a considerable amount of practical mischief and damage to the Northern cause.--Hence, this grand official personage, Wm. H. Seward, feels compelled to mention the man Russell in a State document, whilst in the same breath he ventur
the interest of the contemplated debt for one year. At the end of their nine years war, the Yankees may sell New York for one year's interest on their debt; the next year they may sell Philadelphia in part payment; and the year after that, they may put up Boston and apply the proceeds as far as they will go. Did the records of humanity ever reveal such deplorable folly as the men who are urging on this war are guilty of? The British Government was led on step by step, in the accumulation of its enormous debt. They did not go at it with their eyes open. They commenced by borrowing small sums, with the hope of paying them off in a short time. At the end of the French war, they were in debt £900,000,000 sterling. But here are people, who deliberately calculate upon swelling the burthens of their subjects — for the Yankees are the subjects of Lincoln--to an amount rivaling the debt thus insidiously accumulated, and if this is announced in the beginning as a mere matter of course
e Northern population have no more comprehension of the true principles of free government than the masses of France or Germany--no reverence or regard for the most sacred rights, franchises, and badges of constitutional liberty; but rejoice to trample them all under foot, so as to gratify the greed of gain and the passion for revenge, which are the mainsprings of the present war. They have Union better than Liberty, better than Republicanism, and to save that Union, have cheerfully endowed Lincoln with more than the powers of any united monarch in Europe and would give him the name as readily as the substance of Ringly authority, if there were no other aspirants but himself for the imperial purple. The necessities of their condition, after the war is ended, will demand a strong Government. The property-holders of the large cities are constantly living upon the sides of a vast volcano, which may at any time sweep a flood of destructive lava over there if they do not seek the protec

Hawkins was a relative of his, and reprieved him for a short time; and by means of the countersign and a Federal uniform, kindly furnished by a friend in the enemy's ranks, he escaped, obtained a horse, and struck out for Bowling Green, 175 miles distant. On the road he met with both friends and foes, was re-arrested twice, and finally got home with the assistance of Mr. Todd, a brother-in-law of Lincoln, and brother of the two gentlemen now in the Confederate service in Virginia--Mr. Burnam's brother is Adjutant of the 1st Kentucky regiment, at Fairfax Court-House. The Federals treated him very well while they had him; but they were the worst scared set of men he ever saw when the report of the advance movement of Confederates reached them; they never thought of making a stand, only of retreating. Yours, truly, Kentuckian.
of every age and condition in life. These men have been compelled to flee to save their lives or to escape an imprisonment little less intolerable than death itself. They represent that a perfect reign of terror exists wherever the minions of Lincoln are in a majority, or have the power through the intervention of troops sent to overawe them. So far we have heard of no ladies being arrested, but we know of ladies who have been compelled to flee the State in order to prevent arrest. The Comparatively few are volunteering, notwithstanding the urgent appeals to the people. The Journal and Democrat are both begging piteously for volunteers. The army in the Mississippi Valley. Some idea of the formidable obstacles which Lincoln's flotilla will have to encounter in its passage down the Mississippi, may be formed from the annexed extract from a letter to the Baton Rouge Gazette: Our troops are composed of the flower of Mississippi, Tennessee, Missouri, Kentucky, an
ndoned dwellings, homesteads burnt, the town of Hampton in ashes, and fertile acres filled with ungathered grain and rankling weeds, on the borders of Virginia, we should to-day have our homes and household gods unpolluted by the vandal hands of Lincoln's hirelings, our granaries filled with this year's products, and our fields freshly ploughed for the autumn seed. But all this sad contrast we cheerfully, joyously look upon, and hold our lives ready for the sacrifice, too, whenever our country forever. The Government of the United States is no longer Republican. Its Presidential chair is a despot's throne. Tyranny untrammeled and undisguised stalks at noon-day and at night, in low places and in high places, wherever the sceptre of Lincoln sways. No habeas corpus or trial by jury, no rights of person or of property, no liberty of speech or of the press is now recognized in the North. The last lingering vestige of the good Government our fathers gave us has disappeared in the non
