The Impudence and Insolence of Perfidy.[from the Grenada appeal, Aug. 4.] The poor, miserable, white-livered sycophant, who conducts the Memphis Bulletin, gets off a disgusting and cringing article in his issue of Saturday, relative to Lincoln's confiscation, proclamation, which is really almost too contemptible to challenge notice from us. But we prefer to expose the miserable creature to the scorn and indignation which he so justly merits from an oppressed and outraged people, and we ca the more contemptible by reason of his boast of Southern birth and education. Such a position might be not only tolerated but expected from a Yankee abolitionist, but it amounts to simple perfidy in a native Southerner. If Mr. Nabers believes Lincoln's to be the "best Government ever established on earth," let him live under it and enjoy its blessings, but let him not, by his insidious appeals, draw others into its toils. Such appeals to the Southerners are exceedingly ill timed just no
ng men to serve in the infantry. We think, too, that old men might be employed in the public offices entirely with great advantage to the public. It would give whole battalions of young men an opportunity, which no doubt they eagerly desire, to serve their country in the field. We hope the Government will take this view of the subject and begin the work at once. If the measures here proposed be followed out rigidly, we can put into the field a force quite equal to that called for by Lincoln, in numbers, and superior in every quality that goes to the making up of a good soldier. We can get our conscripts into place quite as soon as he can get his, and instead of disaster and defeat, such as marked the winter of 61-62, we may calculate on pushing the victories that have attended our arms of late, to their most remote consequences. But, above all, let Congress act with decision and at once. They have no time to lose, for the cool weather is rapidly approaching, and the ranks o
East Tennessee. The engagement at Tazewell last week, which was so grossly exaggerated, we are satisfied, was but the beginning of active operations in that quarter. The public may safely calculate upon receiving information of a much more important movement in the same direction before the expiration of another week, and it is not improbable that they will have a confirmation of the result anticipated by the dispatch already published. We are assured by a gentleman recently from that section of the Confederacy that our officers and men are fully alive to an opportunity of striking an effective blow to the minions of Lincoln, and that stirring news must reach us before many days of the operations of our forces.
Yankee deserters. We have been informed that twenty-two deserters from Lincoln's army came into Staunton on Wednesday last and surrendered themselves to the commandant of that post. They represented themselves as from Northwestern Virginia, and said they were fired of fighting against their friends of the Zest.

ns of their less shortsighted countrymen. That these will be candid and confess their own madness is not to be expected. A people never recants. But they may show their rulers, by signs not to be mistaken, that they will tolerate no more of Mr. Lincoln's crusade. The question will be soon determined. If this war is to go on, the immense levy ordered by the President must be actually made. The 300,000 men must be forthcoming if Virginia is to be conquered, or if even Tennessee is to be helas talked about; but we should think it would be only talked about. The scheme of a forcible levy of troops in a republic to subjugate and hold down another republic is one that will hardly be seriously proposed, even by the more fanatical of Mr. Lincoln's advisers. All now, therefore, depends on the enlistment that is going on under the President's proclamation. If this falls, then all is over, and after a few months the independence of the South must be acknowledged, as it might have been
