The Florida on a Frolic. --We find the following in the Mobile Evening News, of Friday last: The Confederate States steamer Florida came up to town about 7½ o'clock this morning, and now lies in the stream not a bit the worse for her brush yesterday morning, which is more than the enemy can say for himself. As far as we have been able to ascertain the particulars of the affair, they are as follows, and from a reliable source: About 9 o'clock yesterday morning, (4th instant,) the Florida, Capt. Welles, C. S. N., came in sight of a large three-masted propeller, inside of Horn Island Pass, and put after her, first signaling to the Pamlico, which was in company, to turn back. The enemy showed some disposition to fight, but after exchanging a few shots, concluded to try her heels, in which she had a superiority. The Florida however, pursued her for about three miles outside the Pass, when she relinquished the chase, the sea being too rough for her to wore her guns with e

tions, the complaint against the injustice of it will be so great as to chill the military ardor of some of the most patriotic men that are now in the field, and the evil will be felt throughout the whole war to such a degree as in a great measure to destroy the efficiency of the present volunteers. The motion of Mr. Nash, in the Senate of Virginia, meets with the cordial approbation of the soldiers in camp. It authorizes the Governor to draft from the militia Virginia's quota to the Confederate States, exempting the present volunteers after having served twelve months, and providing by law a suitable bonus to such of those as may reenlist after their present term expires.-- This law operates well for all ages subject to military duty, and if adopted, thousands upon thousands of those who are now in the field, actuated by the same patriotic impulses that first caused them to enlist, will again rally to their country's need with an unchilled ardor and a devotion prompted by
excuse the large quantity of space it occupies in our columns: Sir --It is curious to read the endeavored to be-nicely balanced articles put forth by the Times on the war now blustering — for no soul can call enraging — in the dis-United States, and to glean from those articles an evident desire, in the steerage of their overgrown ship, the starboard or port, the helm according to the leading breeze; or, in other words, to lurch the vessel on whichever side the tide of victory may r no one injured, even by a splinter, will not go down as real war with the other nations of the earth, and the opinion of all military men is that no nation ever came out in so miserable a light as to the gifts of war as has done the dis-United States of America. This blame attaches not to the South; she has done all she said she would do; she secedes, and stands on the defensive and on her just right to sever from the Union when she feels that her interests are neglected or actively assailed T
stiny, --"Since the struggle between Spain and her rebellious colonies finally died out, no attempt has been made to assert, by force of arms, the supremacy of the Old World over the New. We were, all of us, to say the truth, more or less converted to the doctrine of "manifest destiny." A new world had been called into existence, to redress the balance of the old; and so the old had, not unnaturally, felt itself disposed from any attempt to redress the new.--The colossal power of the United States, overshadowing Canada on the North and the States of the Gulf on the South, so clearly arranged to itself the disposition of all matters on the continent of America, that it seemed useless to interfere with the affairs of communities all destined, sooner or later, to absorption in the vast and growing Republic. If we wanted a convincing proof that the tide had turned, and that we were Entering on A Course of New and Unforeseen Events, we find it in the fact that the three powers who pos
justice that I should here record in this recapitulation, my high appreciation of the industry, judgment and professional skill which have marked the conduct of the distinguished officer who has been called by me, with the unanimous approval of the Convention to conduct the military and naval operations of Virginia. From every principle of duty and patriotism, the Executive Department of the State has felt called upon to co-operate cordially and heartily with the Government of the Confederate States, and the policy which has controlled my action heretofore will continue to regulate it. The great interests at stake demand the surrrender of all questions of a subordinate character, in a vigorous and united effort to maintain the common rights of the South. Nothing, will be left undone to advance the interests of all, and the candor, frankness, and sincerely which have been exhibited by the President, assure me that harmony and concert of action will be the result.

The public Guard. --Since the Armory buildings were transferred to the Confederate States, the corps known as the Public Guard have lacked the accommodations necessary to the preservation of their efficiency. Instead of having a suitable barracks, the men are scattered in such places as the authorities were able to obtain, though altogether unsuitable and inconvenient. The construction of a new building in some eligible location, for permanent quarters, is desirable, and the General Assembly would do a good thing in adopting measures for such a purpose.
