Very good!

The Richmond Whig, a few days since, had the following capital bit at the Yankees:

‘ The Yankee papers call the Confederate States Secissia ot a bad appellation. What me would fit the Yankees? Servia, or the land of serfs, would not be far wide of the mark; but it would be doing injustice to the Turkish Province of that name, which, though enslaved did not perpetuate the folly of enplaving itself. That glory belongs to the Yankee alone.
