at he already has. It is eternally abusing England in the most violent manner. It was the first to defend the capture and detention of Mason and Slidell. It urges upon Lincoln the most boundless expenditure of money. It constantly stimulates the North to renewed exertions against the South, involving, of course, an unheard of expenditure, by concealing their numerous defeats, or proclaiming them as victories. It tells them that the South is at its last gasp, and calls the message of President Davis "a dying kick." If, in spite of Bethel, Bull Run, Manassas, Springfield, Lexington, &c., Bennett really entertains such an opinion, he must be superlatively silly, and that we all know he is not. Such is a summary of the points taken by the Bee, to prove that Bennett cannot be acting in good faith, but that he is pursuing his revenge by leading the United States into an unfathomable gulf of debt.

Captain Anderson was sent early to West Point, where he was a contemporary of President Davis and Gen.

He practiced law in Tennessee, and was frequently elected to the Legislature of that State. At the breaking out of the Mexican war he raised a large volunteer company, and was in every important engagement from Vera Cruz to C

I do not send them for their beauty, or for the use of them, but only as a slight evidence of Southern independence and home manufacture, both of which every Southern heart should endeavor to obtain and encourage. With every wish for your future health and happiness, I remain, very respectfully yours., "Miss S. C. Pannell." The ingenuity of the work is remarkable; and though the socks may not be quite so soft as silk, they nevertheless possess the advantages of durability and warmth. The ladies of the South are showing a praiseworthy determination to turn everything to account. We notice that one in Tennessee has produced a very superior article of cloth woven from cotton and cow's hair
