rnment. The war News in New Orleans. New Orleans, April 15th. --Mr. Lincoln's war Proclamation was received here this morning, and increased, if possiblPensacola will reach about ten thousand men. New Orleans, April 16.--President Lincoln's Proclamation creates no astonishment here.--Everybody is highly pleasedida, which sends two thousand. The Southern people say they will suppress Lincoln and Seward's combinations. It is less of a Government than ours, and we will drive Lincoln back to his abode in quicker style than he came through Maryland. There is perfect confidence here that we can, with Davis, Pillow, Breckinridge and Beauregard, whip out Lincoln's 75,000. Our munitions of war will hold out longer than Abe's money. Gen. Pillow's offer of a division of Tennessee troops to s place, went over and took possession of Fort Macon to day at 3 o'clock P. M. Lincoln will meet with a warm reception if he undertakes to retake it soon. When
ss for members of the Convention, they lost no opportunity to have a vote of the people at public meetings. Truly, they change their tactics. They retired from the Court-House, with seven or eight others, very much chopfallen after the vote. Soon after the meeting adjourned, and as the crowd was leaving the Court-House, a telegraphic dispatch was received from Staunton, per express — the same that Col. Baylor, of the Convention, sent to Staunton from Richmond — giving intelligence of Lincoln's calling for 75,000 militia. The whole crowd of course re-assembled, when Dr. A. M. Newman read the dispatch. With the messenger from Staunton a letter came the Colonel of the Staunton Regiment of Volunteers, to know of Col. Gibbons if the Fourth Regiment was ready to march to Harper's Ferry and take possession? To which Col. G. replied, "We are ready to go there, provided the Governor of Virginia gives permission." Immediately after the reading of the dispatch, Dr. S. H. Moffett
Governor Hicks. If it be true, as reported, that Gov. Hicks, of Maryland, has acceded to the requisition of Lincoln for troops from that State to invade his sister States of the South, he will have the honor of inaugurating a civil war between the people of his own State. There are plenty of brave, true-hearted men in Maryland who will give Gov. Hicks enough to do at home, without sending his bloodhounds to hunt down a kindred people.
A Blast from the Union Trumpet. The Lynchburg Virginian, which has hitherto battled manfully for the cause of the Union, thus responds to Lincoln's Proclamation: "But the last feather which breaks the camel's back, has been applied. Not only have Federal troops been sent upon a mission of war, but the man who, above all others, held the destinies of this great nation in his hands, and could, by a word, have restored peace, has drawn the sword 'They that take the sword shall perish with the sword.' is the strong language of holy writ. Let there be a literal fulfillment of the prophecy in this instance, so that the wretch who preferred violence to persuasion may be the first victim of his foul ambition. Let him at least be driven from the soil he pollutes, which never yet cherished such a reptile. Perfidy; aye, double distilled treachery to the true and loyal men of the South, have done their worst; and from henceforth nothing but execrations, deep, bitter and enduring,
r Department. Government has been asked from New Orleans for the whole of the fifteen million loan. Tenders have been made for letters of marque and reprisals. [second Dispatch.] Montgomery, April 17. --President Davis' Proclamation will be issued to-morrow. The Cabinet had a long session, and will probably call 150,000 more troops into the field. President Davis' Proclamation.Proclamation by the President of the Confederate States of America. Whereas Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, has by proclamation announced his intention of invading this Confederacy with an armed force for the purpose of capturing the fortresses, and thereby subverting its independence, and subjecting the free people thereof to the dominion of a foreign power; and, whereas, it has thus become the duty of this Government to repel the threatened invasion, and defend the rights and liberties of the people by all means which the laws of nations and the usages of ci
Resignation of Maj. Hutter. --Maj. Geo. C. Hutter, paymaster in the late U. S. Army, has resigned his commission. This is a praiseworthy act in Maj. Hutter. He is a true Virginian, and, like all true Southern men, can never consent to hold office under such a traitor and despot as Abraham Lincoln. --Lynchburg Repub.
Hon. John S. Pendleton. --At a large gathering of the citizens of Culpeper, on Monday last, Mr. John S. Pendleton, heretofore one of the most conservative of the Union party, offered and supported resolutions regarding the response of Lincoln to the Virginia Committee as a declaration of war, which, together with the draft for soldiers, demands her immediate withdrawal from the Union.
From Georgia. Augusta, April 17. --Very little doing in cotton in the Southern markets. Little offering. Holders demand an advance. Lincoln's Proclamation is condemned and ridiculed, and many consider the offers of Northern volunteers mere gasconade; but hundreds of battalions and regiments of volunteers are quietly forming in the South--many secretly — to meet the Northern volunteers in case they can be found. An unparalleled war spirit is aroused in the South. Men and means are freely and lavishly offered. It is believed impossible to subdue it short of a grand national Waterloo conflict.
Augusta county in the field. The Staunton Spectator, the Union organ of Union county, commenting on Lincoln's nation, says: "There is but one sentiment every man is ready to take up arms!"
Kentucky true to the South. Louisville, April 17. --A large and enthusiastic meeting was held here last night in opposition to Lincoln's war policy. Resolutions were unanimously passed that Kentucky will not permit the marching of troops against the Southern Confederacy, but will share the latter's destiny if war comes. A similar meeting was held at Paducah.
