, to invite or even justify political dissensions and party divisions. That the free and independent people of the Confederate States will, sooner or later, organize themselves into separate parties, with opposing principles, arising from an inevitacrescences upon the body politic. The South has drawn her sword, and lopped them off forever. The Government of the United States is no longer Republican. Its Presidential chair is a despot's throne. Tyranny untrammeled and undisguised stalks atave us has disappeared in the non-slaveholding States. The South has taken the Constitution to herself; and in the Confederate States alone are the vestal fires of freedom burning still. What the jewel is to the casket containing it — what the Bibles as is the Bible in our religion. Let us make it the touchstone of every public measure now and forever, and the Confederate States will never cease to illustrate to the world the safe and simple philosophy of the founders of the first American Re
orrespondent sends to the Louisville Journal a copy of the oath which is administered by Capt. Gibson, who is in command at West Point, Ky., to parties arrested by his order. It is as follows: "We, the undersigned, solemnly swear that we will support the Constitution of the United States and of the State of Kentucky; that we will be loyal to the same and the Government thereof, and in no way aid, abet, or approve the infamous and unholy war of rebellion now being waged against the United States; and if we violate this oath, may God visit us with special vengeance and men hold us as outlaws from all human sympathy." There are very few troops in Louisville, and the Lincolnites find it impossible to excite the enthusiasm of the people in espousing the cause of the despot. 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 i
ted in the class of 1854. His first commission in the United States army was as Brevet Second Lieutenant in the mounted rifles, and was dated July 1st, 1854. On the 20th of December, 1855, he received a commission as First Lieutenant in the First Regiment of Cavalry, and was afterwards breveted a Captain, after seven years service in the army. This latter rank he held at the time of his resignation to join in the defence of his native State. He immediately entered the service of the Confederate States, was made Colonel of the First Mounted Regiment from Virginia, and a short time since was promoted to a Brigadier-Generalcy, and assigned to the command of cavalry. The appearance of Gen. Stuart is very striking and attracts general attention. Imagine strong, athletic frame, something over six feet in height, of almost perfect mould; a head covered with dark brown hair, heavy moustache and whiskers, which hide completely the lower portion of a pleasant face; I countenance that ca
Wm. H. Seward's letter. --The letter of Secretary Seward, which we published on Thursday, in reference to the American correspondence of the London Times, is an amusing production. The Government of the United States must be upon its last legs when the Premier condescend to issue a manifesto upon the communications of an intolerant letter writer of the London Times, concerning matters and thins on this continent. Imagine John C. Calhoun, or Daniel Werster under the old regime, putting fction, can be instified only on the ground of public danger." And then refers to "that great fundamental truth of one system, that error of opinion may safely be tolerated when reason is left free to combat it." In view of the fact that every newspaper in the United States which has dared to express an opinion of its own has been silenced, and every man guilty of free speech sent to a Federal prison, it must be acknowledged that his last assertion of Wm. H. Seward the illness of banish and

The seat of Government. A recent message of the Mayor of Augusta Ga., recommends the bringing to the attention of the Government of the Confederate States the advantages of that place as the permanent Capital. We may add that the Government is making extensive improvements on the arsenal property near Augusta, and contemplates the establishment there of a powder mill and a large manufactory of arms. Not withstanding all the efforts in progress for its removal, we presume that the Capital at the Confederacy will be at Richmond for some time to come. The buildings used for Government purposes have been fitted up at considerable expense, and we doubt whether any could be found elsewhere so well adapted to the operations of the various departments. After peace is restored, and the country becomes quiet, their will be time enough to make suggestions of an ambulatory characters.
st-offices in the State, we annex for general information a portion of the act of Congress regulating the postage on newspapers, pamphlets, and other printed matter: "And be it further enacted, That all newspapers published within the Confederate States, not exceeding three ounces in weight, and sent from the office of publication to actual and bona fide subscribers within the Confederate States, shall be charged with postage as follows, viz: The postage on the regular numbers of a newspapConfederate States, shall be charged with postage as follows, viz: The postage on the regular numbers of a newspaper published weekly shall be 10 cts. per quarter; papers published semi-weekly, double that amount; papers published thrice a week, treble that amount; papers published six times a week, six times that amount, and papers published daily, seven times that amount. And on newspapers weighing more than three ounces, there shall be charged on each additional ounces in addition to the foregoing rates, on those published once a week, five cents per ounce, or fraction of an ounce, per quarter; on those
Pay of army officers. While it would appear, by a superficial consideration of the subject, that the officers in the Confederate States army are paid more liberally than those in the Federal army, an investigation will, perhaps, lead to a different conclusion. Our officers, it is true, receive a lucrative compensation in money, but there are no extra allowances. Out of the amount they have to furnish their own rations, uniforms, and other indispensable articles; while at the North a certain number of rations to each officer are furnished by the Government, and they are left free to apply their entire salaries to private purposes. We are, however, among those who believe that the rank and file of the army should be well paid, since the officers are apt to receive all the honors of war, which ought to make up for any deficiency in other respects; while the privates, who sustain most of the hardships, and are generally unknown to fame, are placed at the bottom of the list in resp

"It is not my purpose to discuss the merits of the cause or causes which have resulted in plunging our country into all the horrors of 'civil war,' but to remind those under my command of their obligations now to a faithful and zealous performance of every duty. "Coming as we do from the various sections of the country, unanimity of opinion on this subject cannot be expected, and I would urge upon all the necessity of abstaining from all angry and inflammatory language upon the causes of the present state of things in the United States, and to recollect that here we have nothing to do but to perform the duty of our respective stations, and to obey the orders of our superiors in authority; to this we are bound by the solem
rvile and man-worshipping as any mob in Europe would be proud of a royal master. There would be nothing as offensive to its instincts in a King as there is in its aristocracy, which has risen from its own obscurity, yet assumes the utmost hauteur and arrogance towards the very class from which it originated, and oppresses them in every possible shape and form. We dare say that there are men now living in the North who look forward to the contingency of sitting upon a throne and wielding a sceptre and that Wm. H. Seward is one of them.--The only practical difficulty in the way is. Who shall be the King? The thing itself, monarchy, the North could swallow to-day without a wry face; but the man, unless they imported some of the blooded stock of Europe, would be the difficulty. However, with a powerful army at his command, it would not be impossible for Seward to Napoleonize the Northern Government, and ten years hence, as William the First, to wave a sceptre over the United States.
