enough to supply the South for all future time.--She has copper, zine and coal in any desirable quantities. She has iron, in two deposits, alone sufficient, according to her State geologist, to supply the whole world, at the present annual rate of consumption, for thirteen hundred years, and without digging deep into the earth for it. She, unfortunately, has a disaffected population, principally of German and Northern birth, who are used as the tools of such men as Frank Blair, Jr., and B. Gratz Brown, in their war upon Southern institutions. They make, of themselves, a formidable enemy, numbering over ten thousand men, most of whom are well armed and drilled, and heartily co-operate with Lincoln in his work of subjugating the South. Added to these, there is another influence bearing heavily against the Southern feeling in Missouri. It is that of the Annabal and St. Joseph Railroad, owned and controlled by Northern capitalists. But Missouri is without a supply of arms, and consequ
an for that country and that people. He can do more with them and for them than Gen. Beauregard himself. Please say to Gen. Wise, that it is suggested that he visit President Davis without delay, and request the loan of the 600 Choctaw warriors in or about Norfolk, for four weeks only. Gen. Wise, commanding his Legion and our Choctaw friends, could settle little matters of difference which might arise between themselves on the one hand, and Carlile, late of Dayton, Rockingham county, Va., Brown of Preston, Major Gen. McLeland, of Ohio, and the crawling sympathizers with Seward and Lincoln on the other, in one lunar month; rest assured of this. Our young men who went from this county (Augusta) are noble youths; but, my dear Editors, they are raw, undrilled, and want a leader. None of your pink-ribbon, young American leaders will do for Northwestern Virginia. You know Henry A. Wise; you know his general character, (who does not?) Wise is the identical man for Grafton, Phillippi, P
ay, in which two of the enemy were slain. The achievement of Capt. Werth was a very remarkable one, and sounds almost like the old tales of chivalry. Incidents like it must give the enemy a foretaste of what they have to expect from a whole population armed for resistance, and resolved to give up their country only with their lives It can hardly be violating any rule to say that Gen. Magruder has pushed a strong reconnaissance twelve miles below this, and that Stanard's battery and part of Brown's are with him. The rest of us are left here, forming a part of the garrison, I suppose; or it may be that we may be ordered to join. I can only say that we are all very anxious to be with our comrades. We would all prefer "hearing the lark sing to hearing the mouse squeak," if I may be allowed to use the expression of the Black Douglas I do not think the enemy will ever be able to reach Richmond by this route. He certainly cannot, unless he force the passage up this river, and that will
companies of his own troops. In addition to this, he determined to carry the war into the enemy's country, and on Wednesday last Stanard's battery of the Howitzer Battalion was ordered down to the Church, where it was soon joined by a portion of Brown's battery, of the same corps. The North Carolina Regiment, under Colonel Hill, was also there, making in all about 1,100 men, and seven howitzer guns. On Saturday last the first excursion of considerable importance was made. A detachment orolinian who volunteered to fire one of the houses behind which they were stationed. He started from the breast work to accomplish it, but was shot in the head. He died this morning at the hospital. The wounded are Harry Shook, of Richmond, of Brown's Battery, shot in the wrist; John Werth, of Richmond, of the same Battery, shot in the leg, and Lieut. Hudnall, of the same battery, shot in the foot.--None of the wounds are serious. The Louisiana Regiment arrived about one hour after the
