and trusting in the justness of our cause, we appeal to Him that He may set at naught the efforts of our enemies, and put them to confusion and shame: Now, therefore, I, Jefferson Davis President of the Confederate States in view of the impending conflict, do hereby set apart Friday, the 15th day of November, as a day of lasting humiliation and prayer; and I do hereby invite the Reverend Clergy, and the people of these Confederate States, to repair on that day to their usual places of public worship, and to implore the blessing of Almighty God upon our arms, that He may give us victory over our enemies, preserve our homes and altars from pollution, and secure to us the restoration of peace and prosperity. Given under my hand and the seal of the Confederate States, at Richmond, this thirty-first day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-one Jefferson Davis. By the President: R. M. T. Hunter. no 1--codt15N Secretary of State.
iment being constantly on that duty. No trace of the rebels, in any force, has been seen in this direction, for ten weeks. Occasionally a stray rebel is seen, but they all maintain a respectful distance. Passes to go South. The number of persons applying to go South has so increased of late as to give rise to inquiry as to the cause. It seems that there are Secession emissaries and lawyers in many of the Northern cities, who are advising their clients to comply with the call of Jeff. Davis, requiring all Southern property-holders to come South under penalty of Sequestration if they refuse. It is well known that all who go South in accordance with this advice are compelled to swear allegiance to the Confederate States, and to contribute a part of their property for the support of the rebellion, thus rendering the whole of it liable to confiscation by the United States Government. As to the threat of Sequestration by the insurrectionists, it is hardly necessary to say t
out to the polls to vote for President and members of congress. This precinct has its box at the Medical Director's Office, formerly known as Carmon's Store. One hundred and fifty-two votes were cast for President and Vice President, and all for Davis and Stephens. The soldiers voted at their regiments, and the result has not yet been given. At this precinct the vote for member of Congress stood: Smith 93; Scott 26. From a gentleman who came from Fairfax this evening, I learn a box was opened there, and that Smith received a majority of the votes cost for Congressman. Of course the Presidential vote was a unanimous thing. There has been none of the usual excitement and electioneering, every one taking it for granted that Davis and Stephens were the unanimous choice of the people of the Confederate states. The only other box open in this vicinity was at the 49th Virginia, but I am unable to give the result of the vote. The good news brought in the Dispatch concerning the d
Grinding Seed Corn. --The Abingdon Virginian has the following appropriate and well-timed remarks: President Davis says--"When a youth under 18 joins the army, instead of continuing at school, it is like grinding seed corn." The illustration is a good one, and as true as gospel. No youth under 18 has any business in the army, and in nine cases out of ten is a drawback instead of a benefit. In consequence of the great number of boys in the army, nearly all the colleges in the country have been suspended. Not only so, but even the female colleges have either suspended altogether, or are dragging along at a dying rate with but a small number of pupils. This is more to the regretted than the suspension of male schools, for the reason that there is no excuse for it. Young ladies do not go to war, nor does war make their stay at home necessary. In consequence of the scarcity of money in such times, men imagine their inability to educate their daughters, but they should reme
Arrest. --A man named John Miller was arrested yesterday by officers Seal and Davis, on a charge of "receiving stolen goods"--the goods being described as one cow, valued at $48, the property of Jeremiah M. Senith
