South was wrong, according to the letter of the law, yet the spirit of American institutions sanctioned the successive secessions. Were it all practicable, President Lincoln might, according to the literal theory of the Constitution, suppress with a high hand all rebellions and hang all traitors; but this course was out of the qusion?" Levies would have been disbanded, the war fever would have subsided, and the border States would have remained in the Union. But by talking of coercion, Mr. Lincoln kept up a continual fever in the South, enabled the Montgomery Government to exercise a despotism and to concentrate its energies on military preparation, and f border States into hostility to the Union. Were coercion actually practicable, this course might have been defensible; but strong words do not take forts, and Mr. Lincoln is further now from success against the South than he was when he started from Chicago. As regards Fort Sumter itself, he did the worst thing he could do.
A Northern Secessionist --A Northern gentleman, whilom a resident in Cincinnati, came here a year and a half ago to hang bells. When Lincoln was elected, the bell-hanger was among the first to sound the tocsin of alarm. From him Memphians learned that except himself every Northerner was "a black-hearted scoundrel." His own father he stigmatized as the Abolition offspring of an animal classified as canine by Buffon and other writers on the animated creation. The end of the gentleman proves his last assertion true; for he trotted out of Memphis some weeks since, shook the dust off his tail, and smelt his way to Philadelphia, remarking as he went, that he would "rather blacken boots in the North than hang bells in the South." This violent change of sentiment is due to the fact that he owed some rent for his kennel, and various other little bills. While among us it wagged its tail, as its father did before it, in answer to the name of "Bill Kinnan." Memphis (Tenn.) Argus.
Arrested --We have just heard says the Raleigh (N. C.) Standard, of the 1st inst., that a man named Bushrod Vick, a native of Nash county in this State, who arrived here Tuesday professedly with dispatches from Gov. Letcher to Gov. Ellis, was put under arrest on Thursday on suspicion that he was one of Lincoln's spies. It is rumored that Gov. Ellis telegraphed Gov. Letcher, and ascertained that the dispatches were spurious.
The Herald on John Bull. The New York Herald is again in a great rage with John It insists that the Lincoln Administration shall bring him up to the mark at once. It says: "Mr. Lincoln should not permit, for an instant, the recognition of the Confederate States as "belligerents," in the sense in which the word was used by Lord John Russell in the House of Commons. The whole country will sustain him in requiring from Great Britain the explicit acknowledgment of our right to put doMr. Lincoln should not permit, for an instant, the recognition of the Confederate States as "belligerents," in the sense in which the word was used by Lord John Russell in the House of Commons. The whole country will sustain him in requiring from Great Britain the explicit acknowledgment of our right to put down rebellion in America, just as we should leave unquestioned her competency to put down insurrection in Wales or Ireland; and any infringement of the blockade that has been instituted of Southern ports by armed British vessels, should be at once regarded as a casus belli." We venture to say that if a single British gunboat, the Styx for example, should show its face with hostile intent in New York harbor, the whole population would evacuate the island, led on by the bold chieftain who pe
[for the Richmond Dispatch.]a call upon Lincoln. A thrill of rapturous admiration ran through my whole frame when it was announced that President Davis had arrived in Richmond and signified his intention to lead our armies himself to battle. O, men of the North, where is your chieftain? He who with such daring effrontery issued his proclamation of war — that bloody edict at which Heaven and earth stand aghast — in itself as illegal as barbarous, without the sanction of Congress, theoleon basking in the quiet shades of Malmalson, while all France was empurpled with the gore of the brave and the true. O, we reverence the man, conquered hero though he be, whose identity is lost when his country's honor is imperilled. Can Abram Lincoln be so blind as not to know that there are around him reflective men and women who will detect his cowardice, if they have not already discovered his perfidy? Mothers, will you longer allow him to urge on your almost idolized sons — the light<

Invasion of Ironton, Mo.--Lincoln's troops Sheet at and take citizens prisoners. The Memphis (Tenn.) Bulletin is permitted to publish the following extract of a letter to a gentleman in that place, dated Ironton, Mo., May 23. It is probable that the invasion of Ironton and the atrocities herein detailed gave rise to the reports about Jim Lane being between Pocahontas and Jacksonport, Mo.: Yesterday--Wednesday, the 22d--was a day never to be forgotten by us in Arcadia Valley. I pray that I may never see such another day of horror. Lincoln has guerilla soldiers, composed of the lowest class of Dutch, which he has turned loose on the border States, to make war on all the Secessionists — to take freemen as prisoners, and court-martial them for treason if they fail to take the oath of allegiance to the Federal Government. Early yesterday morning a gentleman came galloping up to our house, warning us to hide, that the Lincoln soldiers would be on us shortly. He said they
The Lincoln blockade --Consular Visit.--The marine reporter of the Charleston Courier, under date of May 31, gives the following information: At present, there are two steamers off this bar — the Minnesota, Commodore Stringham, and another, name unknown, apparently a ship about 600 or 700 tons, and of light draft, as she appears to roll very much; she keeps very near the larger vessel, and could be captured by a couple of ordinary steamers well manned and armed. On Thursday, Mr. C. O. Witte, Consul at this port for Sweden and Norway, visited the Minnesota to inquire if the Norwegian Bark Admiral Peter Tordenskfold, now in this harbor, (which vessel arrived here after the steamship Niagara had been off this port, and while the entrance to the harbor was unobstructed,) could load for a place in Europe, and the permission was refused, and he was informed that the Bark could only be allowed to depart in ballast, and even that much was perhaps more than orders justified.
regiment of Home Defenders' could be raised in the manner proposed, and would render efficient service, in conjunction with the army. "As the 'Home Guard' is composed chiefly of exempts who could not be expected to participate actively in an engagement, their services, in the contingency mentioned, would be most valuable as an auxiliary to the police. The experience of the 'Pawnee war' furnishes a foretaste of the excitement which might be expected here in the event of the approach of Lincoln's troops. The probability is that nearly the whole male population would rush forth to aid in repelling the foe, leaving the city exposed to the depredations of thieves. Now, if it were pre-arranged that the 'Home Guard' should distribute themselves over the city — each man to a particular district — the organization would constitute an excellent police or protective force, whose presence would not only prevent depredations, but allay the apprehensions of the women. The commanding office
The Latest News.rumors of the Fairfax fight. A passenger on the Central train, who left Manassas Junction yesterday morning, reports the Southern forces at that place to be in high spirits, and patiently awaiting the attack soon to be made on them by the 40,000 Hessians of Lincoln's army. He says that an old gentleman counted the U. S. Cavalry as they marched on Fairfax Court-House, Saturday morning, and that they numbered eighty-five. On their return there were but fifty-eight in the party, and five stragglers passed afterwards, showing that twenty-two had been either killed or taken prisoners. Seven dead bodies had been seen, and one of the wretched hirelings had crawled into the Confederate camp, badly wounded. The same gentleman reports that on Saturday last the railroad bridge at Martinsburg was fried and burned by the Southern troops, as a matter of precaution against a rear attack. Yesterday afternoon it was reported on the streets that another skirmish had ta
Atrocities of the enemy in Elizabeth City county.further outrages at of Lincoln's Officers shot. We find the following particulars of the recent outrages perpetrated at Hampton and other portions of Elizabeth City county, in addition to what has already been published, in the Norfolk Herald of yesterday: Mr. Frederick Jett, formerly of Elizabeth City, left Williamsburg a few days ago, where he had just moved with his family to avoid the vandals at Fort Monroe, and came r unluckily found a uniform coat; upon which, they held him a close prisoner and sent off his two daughters, grown women, to the fort as "hostages" for his "good behavior." Nothing, was alleged against them; but it was the simple arbitrary act of Lincoln's hell-hounds, who in this, though in violation of law and civilized usage, as in all their proceedings, but followed the example of the lawless old tyrant, their Master. From Mr. West's they passed over to the farm of Wm. Lee, which had on
