A Clerical Wolf.

--The Bowling Green Courier states that the Rev. R. J. Breckinridge, the preacher who, a short time since, urged a warfare on women and children in order to reduce the Southern people to the dominion of the abolition administration at Washington, has written a pamphlet to prove that there cannot be peace until the subjugation of the South is accomplished — to prove that there can be no peace until the last man in the slaveholding States, in hose veins flows one drop of patriotic blood is exterminated, and twelve sovereign States are laid waste with fire and sword; for until the soil of the South has drunk the heart's blood of the last of their sons, and the wives and children of a race of heroes have shared the fate of their natural protectors, the usurpation of Abraham Lincoln will not be acknowledged by the Confederate States, nor will resistance to his tyranny cease while there is a single arm to strike for the God-given rights of free men.
