with the President and his family. The Colonel accompanied the President as one of his suite from Springfield, before Mr. Lincoln's inauguration. He afterwards rendered great assistance in a clerical way. The President admired him for the wonderfueremonies there. This request was granted, and the body will be removed to the Executive mansion in the morning. Mrs. Lincoln visited the Navy-Yard this afternoon to view the remains, and inquired for young Brownell, who slew the murderer. He was present, in the guard of honor, and was introduced, and held a conversation with Mrs. Lincoln upon the particulars of the sad event. It is not improbable that promotion will be the reward of his devoted gallantry. Col. Ellsworth was twenty-tes service. The ceremony will take place in Fourteenth street. A letter from Washington to the Press says Mrs. Lincoln and her sister visited the Navy-Yard to-day, where the body of the deceased soldier was lying in state, and placed a b
sympathy for her, which we are willing to exhibit, to show that there was not a man in the Confederacy who was afraid to be at his post on Virginia soil. We also wanted to be near our brave boys, so that when we threw off the badge of Legislators, we might take up arms and share with them the fortunes of war. We felt the cause of Virginia to be the cause of us all. If she falls, we shall all fall; and we were willing to be at the spot to be among the first victims. We were ready to say to Lincoln, when he attempts to put his foot on Virginia soil, "Thus far shalt thou come, and no farther." (Cheers) The presence of the Confederate Government, backed by all the power of the Southern States, and supported by the hundreds of regiments now on their way to Virginia, will put our safety beyond peradventure, whatever be the force Gen. Scott may throw into Virginia. We shall soon assume the offensive.--Our regiments will soon be at the enemy and be after him. It is well to accustom ou
heresy, that this war must be pushed to the bloody extinction of Southern slavery. It is a war for the "integrity of the Union"--for nothing less, but for nothing more. We have before said that the overthrow of Southern institutions would be the most fatal blow that Northern commerce has ever received, and of this fact the commercial classes are well aware. But they are beginning to see that, having sown the wind they are likely to reap the whirlwind. They have sold themselves to Abe Lincoln in this unholy war, and whatever the New York Herald may say, or the commercial classes imagine, the New York Tribune is the true exponent of the spirit and feeling of the present Administration. The commercial classes of New York are sold out, and devoted to destruction, in any event that this war may take. Let their newspaper representatives fight out their quarrels as best they may, but this is certain — no more cotton and custom go northward from the South from now till the end of t
Personal. David H. Todd, a brother-in-law of old Abe Lincoln, has been appointed a Lieutenant in the army of the Confederate States, and is now on duty in North Carolina. He desires nothing more ardently than to scalp his sister's husband.
empowered the President at his discretion to increase the army of volunteers to 150,000 men. The seat of Government is to be changed for the time being to Richmond, where the archives of the Government and the Secretaries of State will be duly installed by the 1st of June. President Davis will no doubt be in Virginia before you get this to take the command in the field of all the troops concentrated there for our defence. He will be worth fifty thousand men to our cause, and will soon teach Lincoln's myrmadons that our country is never to be subdued while there is a man in the South to raise an arm or a woman to raise a son. You will be gratified to learn that the cotton crop has been curtailed this season, and a greater breadth of land devoted to wheat, rye, oats and corn, as a provision against any scarcity likely to arise from the war. From the appearance of the grain fields, I think it will be as hard to starve us out as to put us to flight in the field. A. B.
roclamation, that the belligerents must bold our soil as sacred. We have been almost upon the verge of civil war here. Lincoln has been putting arms into the hands of his abolition agents here. The Union party--many of them true friends of the Soutral position, and I hope now our people will be united in this position. We expect no invasion from the South, and if Lincoln despises our neutrality, and attempts to occupy our cities, I believe Kentucky will hoist the Confederate flag and drivetory or death. Though our river ports are blockaded, we'll pour the contents of our garners into the lap of the South. Lincoln may attempt to put his padlocks upon our granaries; then will come the tug of war. Your cause is our cause, but we cannos no love for her renegade son. Virginia and Kentucky will yet stand side by side in resisting the matricides, Scott and Lincoln. If Virginia is disposed to complain of Kentucky, let her remember Blanton Duncan and his band of Spartans. When they
ground peas, pumpkins, kirshaw, squashes, melons, cornfield peas, turnips, and nearly all the eatables in creation. The orange crop, as well as the lemon, lime, &c. where grown, are said to be promising; the peach prospect abundant; sufficient plums and strawberries now ripe to feed whole regiments; whortleberries will soon be of the red purple and black tinge. The forest promises an abundant mast crop — oak, beach, pine, &c.; and the woods abound in game, such as deer, bear, turkey, &c. Lincoln and his horde of "freedom shriekers" talk about subjugating or exterminating the white race of the South! They must be fools, a gang of crazy jackasses, or something worse. We have a good lot of boys at Pickens, called "Fool Catchers" When the word is given to cut loose at Pickens, we have every confidence our boys will cage many a one of the blue-bellied followers of the Old Ape; and we expect your Virginia boys, when the ball opens on your borders, will knock some good, hard, horse
The effect of the war in Maine. --An intelligent gentleman from Maine informs us that the war policy of Mr. Lincoln is becoming more and more canvassed in that State, and daily less popular. He says that ship building and the lumber trade are completely flat, and that he is at a loss to know what the people will do. The idea that England may get the carrying trade of the South, and that eastern vessels will be thrown out of employment, stands up like a nightmare before the people. The late development of English policy in that direction, has stimulated this fear, long seen in the distance by many, as a remote possibility, but now thought within the range of probabilities. At all events, great anxiety exists in the minds of the people of Maine, whose livelihood is so intimately associated with ship building and the cotton trade, the former of which always has kept pace pari passu with the development of the other.--N.
