The Bible for the soldiers. --The Rev. J. R. Graves, editor of the "Tennessee Baptist," is now on a visit to our army on the Potomac to ascertain the number of soldiers who are without Bibles or Testaments. This information is sought for the purpose of supplying those destitute of the Scriptures with them free of cost. Mr. G. has distinguished himself by his zeal in this enterprise. It was through his intrepidity, as well as devotion, that the means of supplying the army with the Bible a pocket edition and got them through safely to Nashville in spite of the vigilance of spies and officials. The work was put to press, and some weeks since the first bound copy of the Bible ever printed at the South appeared in the capital of Tennessee. Mr. G. is certainly entitled to the public gratitude for this achievement, and he is now earning a further title to credit and applause by his zealous and well directed exertions to supply the army with the Bible thus printed at Nashville.

without suspending the civil authority at any point. A Cairo correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette says "the hospitals are turning out their occupants by scores daily." It is rare for an abolition paper to admit that there is sickness in the army. Slippery elm bark is needed in great quantity for poultices. Let it be provided in advance, and contributed for the service of our camp by those who find the tree in their neighborhood. The State musket percussion cap factory of Tennessee is now making over one million percussion caps weekly, and can increase its rapidity to thrice that number, if necessary. The corner-stone of a new Catholic Church was laid in Eufaula, Alabama, a few days since. Bishop Quinlan, of Mobile, officiated. Colonel Ector's Georgia Regiment has four hundred and fifty men in it over six feet high, a quantity of doctors and lawyers and fourteen preachers.

" In the same communication you express your desire to elicit "an authoritative assurance that the Government of the Confederate States will continue to respect and observe the neutral position of Kentucky." In reply to this request, I lose no time in assuring you that the Government of the Confederate States of America neither intends nor desires to disturb the neutrality of Kentucky. The assemblage of troops in Tennessee, to which you refer, had no other object than to repel the lawless invasion of that state by the forces of the United States, should their Government attempt to approach it through Kentucky without respect for its position of neutrality. That such apprehensions were not groundless, has been proved by the course of that Government in Maryland and Missouri, and more recently in Kentucky itself, in which, as you inform me, "a military force has been enlisted and quartered by the United State
tucky; Sir: From the date of the proclamation of your Excellency, declaring the neutrality of Kentucky, it has been the settled policy of the authorities of Tennessee to respect Kentucky as a neutral power, and to carefully avoid all acts that could be construed into a violation of any of her rights as such. This policy has been adhered to with perfect fidelity, and will be adhered to by Tennessee as long as the people of Kentucky will act the part of neutrals, and the Federal Government respect their neutrality. But it is proper that I call the attention of your Excellency to the fact that each day brings its accumulation of evidence, forcing me the conclusion that the Federal Government is organizing military companies, battalions, and regiments in the State of Kentucky, for avowed purposes of invading Tennessee and transporting arms to some of her rebellious citizens, thus aiding and encouraging the rebellion. It requires no argument to prove to your Excellency tha
, some of them being the most prominent citizens of our State. The persons engaged in it have given the most solemn assurances they do not intend an invasion of Tennessee, or any hostile purposes in that direction, but have organized solely for the purpose of protecting the State from invasion. Many of them believe, or affect to believe, there is great danger of an invasion from Tennessee. I have taken steps to prevent the organization of these troops, or their encampment upon our soil, with strong hopes of success; and your Excellency may rest assured I will do everything in my power to have respected the neutrality of Kentucky as set forth in my proclamn men in Kentucky are opposed to any such organization here by the Federal Government, of the transportation of arms, men, or munitions over our soil to the State of Tennessee. Many of them are in good faith co- operating with me to prevent it, and most earnestly desire to maintain our position of neutrality during this wicked wa

Masonic circular. --Grand Meeting of the Order.--Charles H. Wintersmith, P. G. M., of the Grand Lodge of Kentucky, has published an address "to the Present and Past Grand Masters of all the Grand Lodges of Free Masons in all the States." The address is also approved of by the Past Grand Masters of the Order in the States of Ohio, Tennessee and Massachusetts. This address refers to the fact that the Order has always proclaimed perfect freedom of political and religious opinions, and has never engaged in political or partisan warfare. In view of the perilous condition of the country, however, the address suggests that there should be a national assemblage of delegates of the Order at Louisville, with the view to consult upon some feasible plan of fraternal and honorable adjustment, which may give the lead to a return of the North and South to fraternal bonds of friendship, and thus restore peace and prosperity to a now distracted country.

Minerals in the South. --There was left at our office a few days since a very fine specimen of copper ore found near Greensborough. N. C. The richness of this specimen would indicate a very valuable mine in that vicinity. It would be well if some capitalist would examine it and see what could be made out of it. Copper will be wanted by us in course of time, and the location of this in North Carolina will prove advantageous for the commerce with the sea-coast. We see by the Mobile Register that a rich lead mine exists on the Warrior River above Tuscaloosa, in Alabama. These are newly discovered or newly announced mines. Both Virginia and Tennessee are rich in copper, and lead ores long known. The lead mines in Southwestern Virginia are rich and extend over a surface of 50 miles in length. Both States have copper enough for all the wants of the South.
