For what does the South fight?--For every thing worth living for. To resist aggression, to resist subjugation, to resist a military despotism, to protect our lives, and the lives of our women and children, from the brutal and infuriate passions of the mob, and to maintain the doctrine of our Revolutionary sires, that the consent of the governed is the only true and legitimate source of power! He that falters is derelict to every dictate of patriotism.--Montgomery Mail, May 13.
