The Confederated States ofNorth America.Sketches of the Executive officers — Strength and wealth of the Republic — the Provisional capital, #x38;c. A sketch of the prominent man who is to share in North America the honors of the Presidential chair with Abraham Lincoln for the next four years, is at the present moment especially apropos. Hon. Jeff. Davis, President. Few men have led a life more filled with stirring or eventful incidents than Jefferson Davis. A native of Kentucky, born about 1806, he went in early youth with his father to Mississippi, then a Territory, and was appointed by President Monroe in 1822 to be a cadet at West Point. He graduated with the first honors in 1828 as Brevet Second Lieut., and at his own request was placed in active service, being assigned to the command of General (then Colonel,) Zachary Taylor, who was stationed in the West. In the frontier wars of the time young Davis distinguished himself in so marked a manner that when a new reg
An infernal Machine indeed. --A Springfield correspondent informs us that some time ago a mysterious looking box was sent by express from Tennessee to President Lincoln, who, mindful of the old adage us to the danger of accepting gifts from enemies, declined to open it. Accidentally, however, the contents of the mysterious case came to light, and it was ascertained that the supposed infernal machine was nothing more nor less than the effigy of an African.

It is supposed that this incendiary harangue was a strong bid for a place in Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet; but a journal, which appears to be well informed, says that it will be no go; that Lincoln looks upon DavisLincoln looks upon Davis as an impracticable, who is also objectionable to the Germans, who, in the Northwest, gave the President elect some two hundred thousand votes. We should like to know what Carl Schurz, the Black Republican leader of the Northwest, who, though only five years in the United States, gave Mr. Lincoln the Northwestern German vote by which he was elected, would say to the introduction into Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet of the recognized Generalissimo of the "Plug-Uglies," whose vocation and entertainment Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet of the recognized Generalissimo of the "Plug-Uglies," whose vocation and entertainment it was to hunt foreigners like dogs through the streets of Baltimore, and shoot a German or an Irishman with as little compunction as they would shoot a dog. In our opinion, there was not one of Mr. Davis' four "Plug-Ugly" constituents, who were hun
The irrepressible conflict In the late conciliatory speech in the House of Representatives of Mr. Kellogg, the representative from Lincoln's district, occurs this passage: "Fifty years ago it was generally conceded, South as well as North, that slavery was wrong; but since then education and political training had greatly changed the current of men's feelings with regard to this question; and now the opinions of the people cannot be changed. They might legislate till the ride ceased to flow, and yet the South would believe that slavery was right. They might legislate till the sun grew tired in his course, and yet the Northern mind would retain the belief that slavery was a moral and political evil. This was a subject on which it was useless to legislate. His proposition was to do as their fathers had done in 1820. In that year the slavery question in the Territory of Louisiana was agitated. How was that agitation met and settled?--Their fathers at once applied a reme
