Alien enemies.

--This is the last day of grace allowed by the statute of the Confederate Congress for taking the oath of citizenship in the Confederate States. Those aliens who omit to qualify may subject themselves to the disagreeable alternative of being sent forth by the Marshals beyond the limits of the Southern Confederacy.

As to the question — what residents of the South are aliens liable to be treated as such under the statute in question?--we publish to day an opinion of Judge Pearson, who is the Confederate Judge in North Carolina, whose reputation as a jurist gives his letter on the subject of alienage especial value and importance at the present juncture of affairs.
