Virginia and the Confederacy. --The closing proceedings of the secret session of the Virginia Convention, as they now appear in the Richmond Enquirer, establish the gratifying fact, which we have always felt convinced of, that, from the very first, Virginia and the Southern Confederacy, through their Executives, Gov. Letcher and President Davis, have been acting in the most perfect concord and mutual good understanding. Gov. Letcher, has exerted himself in carrying out the will the Convention and people with an indomitable energy, characteristic of the man, and an unimpeachable fidelity, by none more highly appreciated than by the authorities of the Confederate States. Virginia has done her part nobly, and completely eclipsed the brightest splendors of her Revolutionary fame.
enacing growth, or from what they call the impertinence of the Yankee race, we seem to have no friends left in this particular class of the English people. Not that they love the South or slavery, but they are furious at the idea that the North should even attempt to avert the threatened rupture of the great Republic, and will be still more furious if the North be successful. The doctrine of free trade which England is forcing on all Europe, and which she has failed to force on the United States, has turned away the sympathies of the commercial classes from the race to which they allied by blood, and directed them into new and strange channels. The Morrill tariff falling upon English commerce at a moment when France was opening her ports to this same commerce formed a contrast too striking for even English tenacity, and to-day we see the unnatural and unusual spectacle of Frenchmen and Englishmen joining in a common depreciation of America and her institutions. Among the l
eastwork or fortification of Gen. Jackson extended from the bank of the river into the swamp, the entire length being about one mile and a half. Will some of our modern writers, who appear to know so much about matters and things that happened before they were born, inform us how many bales of cotton it will require for a breastwork five feet high, ten or twenty feet at the base and one mile and a half long, and then study history and ascertain how many bales of cotton were raised in the United States in 1814, and how many bales were in New Orleans in December, 1814? If they figure it out correctly they will speedily ascertain. In the meantime, with the exception of the eighty-two bales of cotton used, (which, by-the-bye, belonged, as did the balance of the two hundred and seventy-seven bales, to our quondam citizen, Vincent Nolte,) the entire breastwork and fortifications of the plains of Chalmette were composed of nothing but real Louisiana mud. Our authorities are now piling up so
A good move in Florida. --Gov. Milton, of Florida, calls upon all the artificers in that State to meet in Convention at Tallahassee, on the 13th, for the purpose of joining in measures to insure arms for the volunteers. In his call he says: "The citizens of Florida should rely to the utmost extreme of propriety upon their own resources. Florida should not depend exclusively, or unnecessarily, upon the Government of the Confederate States for defence, but as a brave free, and intelligent people, with their trust in God, should chiefly rely upon their own exertions."
e rebel States would reopen the cotton trade. On the contrary, it argues that such recognition could only increase the rigor of the blockade; and that interference with the blockade would be an act of war, embroiling England at once with the United States. Another distinguished Foreign officer. The Count De Sayer, lineal descendant of Count Rochambean, of American Revolution fame, has tendered his military services to the President, and has been assured that they will be accepted. The same answer has been given to the Baron De Schener, descendant of Gen'l Lafayette. It is expected they will soon reach the United States. Resignation of Lieut-Col. Steptoe. Lieut-Colonel E. J. Steptoe, of the Ninth Infantry, has resigned. His resignation, to date from the 1st inst., has been accepted. More Retirements. Capt. John S. Symmes, of the Ordnance Department, and Captain Jos. L. Tidball, have been placed on the retired list, on account of disability — the disa
Later from Europe.arrival of the City of New York. the London Times warns the United States to make the blockade effective — England must have cotton, &c., &c. New York Nov. 3. --The City of New York, at this port yesterday, brings news from Europe to the 24th ultimo--one day later. The London Times published an editorial on the Federal blockade of the Southern ports, in which it warns the Lincoln Cabinet to endeavor to make that measure effective at every point, or elsthe Union Courts, for violating the blockade. The Derbyites pretend that if the decision of Judge Betts is not either reversed or disavowed, England will demand reparation for her ship owners and traders, even to the length of a war with the United States. The expressions of the Times and Herald are published merely as party bids for office. As the day of opening the session of Parliament approaches, the American question is made a prominent topic in the after-dinner speeches of the Engl
a little girl, was convicted and sentenced to the penitentiary for life. The Columbia South Carolinian understands that the authorities of that city have agreed with the Secretary of War to allow the care of one hundred and fifty Yankee prisoners in the district jail, and that a company will be immediately raised to guard them. An infant two months old was killed in New Orleans a few days ago, by its mother accidently rolling upon it while asleep. The first Old School General Assembly composed of the churches of the Confederate States, was held in Augusta, Ga., on the 4th inst. Of the thirty-eight locomotives on the Nashville and Louisville Railroad, the Southerners have seized thirteen. Dr. John W. Lewis, late Superintendent of the Western and Atlantic Railroad, has been elected Superintendent of the East Tennessee and Virginia Railroad. The Columbus (Ky.) Confederate News announces in its last issue that after that date the paper will be discontinued.
