quired no small amount of liquor to maintain their effrontery. The cunning rogues of Wall street well understood the dire strait to which Carlile's men were reduced, and knew at once that they could control them. Stand forward, said they, to the rag-tag and bob-tall Government, as the representatives of Virginia at large — assert your power as the rightful Government to control her public affairs — pass laws obligating the State to pay her bonds — outlaw rebels generally — and glorify Lincoln; and we'll replenish your empty purses, we'll give you money for prog and grog, a new pair of breeches a piece, and enough to go on till you can steal or rob the wherewithal to keep your wheels greased. The offer was too tempting. Trembling at the idea of what they were about to do — ragged and forlorn like Shakespeare's Apothecary — they plainly said "my poverty, not my will, consents. " The begun Government was in this manner "done," by the Wall street brokers — and in this
" at Newport News is in a state of insubordination, and it is apprehended that there will be a general revolt against the authority of the officers. A private made an attack on an officer, and the latter fired upon him, inflicting a dangerous wound. Wm. Murray, a ruffian belonging to the second New Hampshire Regiment, was hung at Alexandria on the 21 inst., for the murder of Mary Murray. He called upon his "friends," in his last moments, to sustain his family in their hour of trail. Lincoln's war must carry sappiness to many domestic circles at the North, if all the domestic circles are as blood thirsty as the Administration. A responsible officer of the Mount Vernon Association emphatically denies Scott's assertion that "Mount Vernon, so recently course crated a new to the immortal Washington by the ladies of America, has already been over run by bands of rebels." Scott is a liar, as well as a traitor. The New York Journal of Commerce, anxious for peace, proposes an
British Press on Lincoln's Message. The subjoined extracts were prepared for yesterday's paper, but omitted in consequence of the heavy demand upon our columnsose principles of which it was the earnest embodiment. We cannot think that Mr. Lincoln rises to the height of this practical, but not less lofty argument. He clin not say this is mere trifling, but we do say that it goes some to show that Mr. Lincoln and his advisers do not feel the full force of those considerations which ha of European observers. [from the London Star.] It is mere folly in Mr. Lincoln to talk of the people of the Confederate States "as a few discontented men."le of popular sovereignty, they had a right to do what they did; and to hear Mr. Lincoln quoting the Constitution of the United States made eighty years since, and eecause not a syllable is whispered upon that subject in the message, nor has Mr. Lincoln, nor any member of his Cabinet, made the remotest allusion to it since their
of chivalry and self-respect. It is positively fiendish. It must move the South to the most united, determined, and heroic resistance that the world has ever seen. My arms were not made to wear handcuffs; nor shall they, while God gives me strength to resist. I believe the thirty thousand handcuffs will be worth more than thirty thousand volunteers to the South. They must inspire the South with an everlasting loathing of the race that could plan for them a degradation so profound and galling — an injury that we cannot retaliate without sacrificing our character in the estimation of the civilized world. "Poor Scott! I learn he has been superseded Withered are his laurels. Yet he did not reach the lowest point of infamy to which he might have descended. He was, I learn, opposed to the use of the handcuffs. These new implements of war are the invention of the Republicans — Lincoln, and his saintly advisers — the great enemies of slavery. Let them have the honor of i
The 10th Louisiana Regiment. --When the Tiger Rifles, who played such fearful havoc with Lincoln's "Pet Lambs, " at Manassas, on the memorable 21st July, passed through this city, we thought that we had seen a specimen of the toughest and most ferocious set of men on earth, but when we speak of the 10th Louisiana Regiment of New Orleans, which passed through this city on Sunday, language is inadequate to give a description, composed as it was of English, French, Germans, Dutch, Italians, , or something else which we could not exactly understand, but seemed to be executed with promptness and a remarkable degree of precision. The Mexicans particularly were objects of much curiosity with our citizens, most of whom had never seen one before. The entire regiment has gone to a point where they will be likely to get a chance at Lincoln's minions, and we confidently predict that when the 10th Louisiana Regiment is again head from "somebody else will be hurt."--Lynchburg Republican.
