reservation, if nothing else, ought to determine every man who has anything at stake, to put an end to this warfare, and that in the speediest manner possible. It can, at best, only lead to universal bankruptcy — the bankruptcy of the nation and the bankruptcy of every individual in it — and what sort of a Government will that be, of which this is the practical and only result? The Congress of the United States, instead of making appropriations of three hundred millions of dollars to carry on the war — instead of responding to the illegal, unconstitutional and unwarrantable demands of Mr. Lincoln, whereby he may be able to pursue his object until the last vestige of constitutional liberty is merged in military despotism — instead of contributing to the beggary of the whole nation — should at once, in a spirit of patriotism, take measures to put an end to this struggle, marked as it has been by wickedness, weakness, imbecility and corruption, disgraceful to all concerne
sperity a public debt is rolling up, which some of our insane contemporaries boast will speedily reach fifteen hundred millions of dollars. Not a single one of Mr. Lincoln's pledges to the country in the month of April has been fulfilled, and, though a Federal army of three hundred thousand men has been enrolled into the service o surprised if even many Black Republican members of the coming Congress shrink from endorsing measures that have caused such calamities, and from authorizing President Lincoln to proceed further in a career so detrimental to the interests of the nation. Not only have our industrial classes discovered that impoverishment is sta that they may not be compelled once more to celebrate that day with a sacrilegious bonfire. The bone, sinew, and intelligence of America utterly repudiate Mr. Lincoln and all his works, and look back with regret to the days when a President would have been impeached for the tenth part of the crimes he has perpetrated. He dar
Hard Pusmed for soldiers. --The columns of the daily papers show that Lincoln's officers are begging hard for recruits for the irrepressible conflict." It were no wonder if, cut of the thousands who are now on the very verge of starvation, through the madness of the Washington Administration, some should be driven to accept o little amused at the remark of one of these recruiting bailiffs, to the effect that "none but young men of good character heed apply." The good character of this Lincoln army may be shrewdly guessed at when the fact is known that the criminals from the jails and the paupers from the almshouses are among the select party. We'vhat institution have been gathered into the fold of Abraham. These are the materials selecting to carry on the "Irrepressible conflict," and through whose agency Lincoln and his fanatical advisers hope to exterminate the South. These are the creatures whom they promise to give the fair inheritance of our Southern brothers. W
Arrival of Bart Tucker. --Beverly Tucker, Esq., late Consul of the United States at the port of Liverpool, arrived in Richmond on Monday with dispatches for President Davis. We learn that he made the journey from Halifax to Richmond by the way of Canada, Michigan and Illinois, and in order to guard still further against detention by the Myrmidons of Lincoln, traveled under an assumed name. He speaks encouragingly, we understand, of an early recognition of the Southern Confederacy by the Government of Great Britain.
issued a proclamation warning both parties from violating this neutrality. Inasmuch as all of Lincoln's acts were gross usurpations of power and clearly in derogation of the Constitution, Kentucky d feed the insurrectionists." The objection to it, as thus stated, is that it will prevent Lincoln from carrying on a war of invasion against States which lie beyond the neutral territory. He sd no obligation to maintain the Union." The truth is, that neutrality in this war simply brands Lincoln's acts as usurpations, and the Union which upholds as a despotism. But his acts being usurfrom its encroachments, and preserve the liberties and rights of the States and of the people. Lincoln will not recognize such neutrality. Nothing will do but abject obedience to his tyranny, and sarried on under the mockery of upholding free government upon the earth?--Will she adopt all of Lincoln's sophisms, and approve his perjured acts, by which he has overturned the Constitution and woul
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch. military matters — arrest — good Appointment. Fincastle, Va., July 6th, 1861. Botetourt has done nobly in sending her brave and gallant sons to the field to resist Northern aggression, and to aid in driving back the base hirelings of Lincoln. Five companies have already been mustered into service, and two more are in process of formation. They are composed mostly of our strong, healthy, mountain boys, and when the time comes for them to strike for their homes and liberty, they will win for themselves a bright place in the annuals of history. Our town was thrown into some excitement on last Friday, occasioned by the arrest of a supposed Yankee, by Capt. Figgat and one of his privates. Said Yankee upon a close examination by Capt. F., adduced evidence proving himself to be a loyal citizen of Virginia, and was consequently discharged from custody, with an expression of regret that in such perilous times the necessity existed
Eccentric Mode of Celebrating. --A peculiar feature was introduced in the celebration of the Fourth at Tarboro', N. C. A rope was stretched across the street, on which were suspended three effigies, bearing the following inscriptions: "Winfield Scott — The Traitor's Doom." "Abe Lincoln — Somebody is Hurt — The Irrepressible Conflict Ended — The South Victorious." "William H. Seward — The Higher Law has ascended." At night the effigies were consumed in a
ond should be taken ere this, by two well-appointed armies, each consisting of twenty-five thousand men, one marching from Alexandria, and the other from Old Point, "to which an army could be easily transported from James river?" Oh, marvellous hero of the quadrilateral, planner of campaigns, and master of geography, why not volunteer to accompany one of those columns? Then there is the N. Y. Herald, whose "eldest son and heir" was said to have offered his yacht, Rebecca, to the service of Lincoln, to be armed with Dahlgren's and commanded by the youthful Bennett? What has become of Rebecca? Where is that man mountain, "Long John Wentworth," of Chicago, and the paper warriors of the Cincinnati Gazette, Times, &c.? Did ever the world see a more shameful sight than that of men who are crying "War! War!" at the top of their voices, and who will not permit the public to hear a word in behalf of peace, universally shirking the dangers which they are insisting everybody else shall incur?
The late Governor Ellis. --The Wilmington Journal, in a notice of the death of Governor Ellis, of North Carolina, says: The virtual outbreak of hostilities, consequent upon Lincoln's proclamation of the 15th of April, found Governor Ellis prostrated in health, sick almost unto death, but unwilling to yield. In that state, lying on a sofa in his office, he dictated his noble reply to Lincoln's insolent demand for North Carolina troops to coerce the South,--he ordered the occupation at state, lying on a sofa in his office, he dictated his noble reply to Lincoln's insolent demand for North Carolina troops to coerce the South,--he ordered the occupation of the forts, he rallied the military spirit of the State. Ever since, a dying man, he has stood like a martyr at the stake, concealing, as far as possible, his sufferings, and dying, we honestly believe, a martyr to his devotion to the cause of the South. He was a true North Carolinian, a brave man, a noble patriot.
What does it mean? --The Powhatan and Brooklyn, off the months of the river, fired yesterday twenty-one guns. What does this mean? It is unusual to fire a number of guns equal to that of the States, and the proclamation of Lincoln is that there are thirty-three States. Does he mean to exclude the eleven seceded States, as either independent or subject States?--adding Maryland and Missouri--or does he mean to dodge the whole question, and at the same time to ignore the division of States, substituting a Presidential salute of twenty-one guns? This is the most probable version, as in all the Northern States the clamor is for a strong Government, the obliteration of State lines, and the concentration of all powers in the President!--N. O. Delta, 5th.
