The negroes vs. Lincoln.

--We have seen a good many accounts of negro subscriptions to the Loan of the Confederate States, but the most remarkable instance occurred in this county a few days ago. After a stirring appeal made by J. R. Hawthorn, Esq., at Pine Apple, on Saturday, an old negro woman named Melinda, belonging to David Carter, walked up to the subscription paper and remarked that she ‘"believed the cause of the South to be right and just, and that she felt it to be her duty to aid, to the extent of her ability, in whipping the enemies of our country,"’ at the same time pulling out ten dollars, saying that she could well spare that if it would do any good — they were welcome to it. Camden (Ala) Republic.
