January 18.

The Chattanooga Rebel, after surmising how the birth-day of Washington will be celebrated in the loyal States, says: “Here in the South we shall pay a different tribute to the day. We shall honor it by silent homage. It is said that the President will issue his proclamation of ‘fasting and prayer’ as a fit commemoration of the trials, sacrifices, and glories of Washington. They are types of our own heroes and martyrs, and whilst we remember and do reverence to the deeds and beauties of character which have consecrated the name of the Father and Country, we shall also bear in mind [36] those Spartan virtues of manhood and those Southern virtues of womanhood which adorn our page and ennoble our day.”
