ers; they have blockaded several of our seaports; they are using every effort to destroy our commerce; they are plundering Southern men of their property, both upon land and sea; they have impressed slaves and compelled them to work upon their fortifications; they have taken cattle from planters and goods from merchants; they have hung and murdered our citizens; and at Alexandria some of these miscreants have insulted and abused Southern women. And now they threaten to take Norfolk, Harper's Ferry and Richmond. Their military leaders propose to "crush out the Southern rebilion." They call us "rebels and trattors," and they are on the march to panish us. They proclaim that Virginia is to be whipped back into the Union, and that the other seceded States, after becoming impovers ished by blockade, are to be subjugated by force of arms. "Then," they say, that "abelition of slavery shall follow." What will the planters of the South say, and what will they do to aid the Governmen

We are here at this advanced post, where we can hear the sound of the enemy's morning and evening gun. The Second Independent Battalion of Georgia Volunteers were the first troops sent from the Confederate States into Virginia, to aid in her defence.--We are in a few miles of Fortress Monroe. We have marched through rain at night, and slept on the ground in the rain until morning. At Sewell's Point, when the enemy was expected to land, a detachment of our Battalion gallantly repulsed an attack made upon the battery at that point by the United States ship "Star." Young men of Georgia fired the first gun and won the first victory in Virginia. The City Light Guards, of Columbus, under Capt. P. H. Colquitt, detached from our Battalion, achieved that victory. We are willing, if need be, to sacrifice our lives for the country. We may be soon called to do it. If so, we shall be found f

Our Government must have money to clothe, feed and arm her soldiery. A wise plan has been enacted to obtain it. We call upon our fellow-citizens and friends to subscribe liberally of their next crop, to sustain the credit of our Government and afford the means for moving our army most promptly to victory. If "Cotton is King," let cotton come to the breach. If Georgia has the honor of having offered to the Government the largest number of volunteers of any of the original seven States, and of having the largest number now in the fleld — let the Empire State loan her crops as well as her sons to the Government. Let every Georgian do his duty. Nothing will tend more to discourage our enemies than for the planters of the South to subscribs without delay for the support of those who will fight bravely to defend th
