n which our Government credit shall be sustained, and our defence made sure. The war is upon us. The enemy is already upon the soil of the South. They have taken armed possession of Maryland, and they have invaded Virginia. While I write, there are thousands of abolition troops in Alexandria, and thousands more upon James river, near Fortress Monroe. And still thousands more will come to profane with their nuhallowed feet the land which gave birth to Washington, Madison, Monroe and Jefferson. The North will soon have seventy-five thousand armed men in the field with the avowed purpose of subjugating the South. They have a vast amount of capital; they have a regular army and navy; they have a supply of the best arms; they have a large volunteer force composed chiefly of abolitionists, foreigners, paupers, laborers out of employment, adventurers, thieves, adulterers and murderers; they have blockaded several of our seaports; they are using every effort to destroy our commerce;

[from the Macon (Ga.) Telegraph.]Appeal to the Planters. The following eloquent appeal to our Planters, from a gallant and patriotic soldier, came to hand yesterday morning. Reed it, Planters of Georgia, and resolve that while others perit their lives, you will not be tardy to stake your fortunes for your country : Cant lee, Tanner's Creek Cross Roads, Virginia June 4, 1861. Hon. Howell Cone--Dear Sir --I have read with deep interest the appeal made by your self and Hon. T. R. R. Cobb, "to the Piaters of Georgia," in which you call upon them to subscribe a portion of their next crop in advance, and receive for the proceeds of its sale bonds of the Confederate States, running at twenty years, and bearing eight per cent. interest. As Agents of the Confederate States, you have made this call upon the Planters of our State to sustain the credit of the Government, and to provide means for the defence of our soil, our liberty, our families and our religion.

y. We may be soon called to do it. If so, we shall be found fighting the fee on the border. We intend to fight him if he shows his face to us. And while we are here lending our lives, who among our fellow-citizens at home will refuse to lend a portion of his crop for the defence of the South! If there be one, let us not hear his name — while we are hearing the enemy's guns. But the President and Government of the Confederate States have come to Virginia. The Commander-in-Chief, Jefferson Davis, is in Richmond, to take command in person of our army, and to lead them against our Northern foes. Congress will assemble in that city. Our Government and our army will be located in Virginia, and this State will be the battle ground between the North and the South. Here the battle will be fought which must decide the issue between us. The forces on both sides are rapidly increasing. The gallant sons of the South are gathering to defend her liberty, her institutions, her honor, and

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 fighting the fee on the border. We intend to fight him if he shows his face to us.

in 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 the soll and slaves, the homes and religion of our native land.--If one-half of the next crop beloaned promptly to the Government, I believe there will be a glorions victory and a speedy peace achieved. Let cotton conquer peace. Very respectfully, yours, R. A. Smith.
