has been dealt out to the meek and submissive Savannah is no criterion to judge of the vengeance reserved for Richmond. Its private hordes of tobacco are, first of all, to be appropriated. The croakers may croak submission, but they cannot save their tobacco. Everything worth stealing is to be appropriated. There are to be no stores here but Yankee stores, no hotels but Yankee hotels, no druggists but Yankee druggists. Everything — all employments, all trades, all professions,--is to be Yankee. A Virginian must take the oath in its vilest shape. He must be watched like a thief wherever he moves. He can hope for no employment beyond that of blacking a Yankee master's boots, or bringing him water from the hydrant, or brushing his coat, or, perhaps, waiting on him at the table. Such is the fate the croakers are invoking on Richmond, at the very time when Lincoln has nearly exhausted his supplies of men, and another year must bring with it a collapse in his plans of conquest.
