The Daily Dispatch: March 31, 1862., [Electronic resource], [correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch] (search)
[correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch] Affairs of Pensacola — Yankees Alarmed — the army on the coast — good News from Mississippi, &c. Mobile, Ala., March 21st, 1862. Yesterday I was within a few miles of Pensacola, and conversed with several officers and others, from whom I warned some very interesting and encouraging facts, some of which it is not discreet to publish at this time. We are holding Pensacola, and intend to hold it to the last extremity, and at all hazards, and if the enemy should ever get possession of it he will find in ashes and ruin everything that might have rendered him any services. The Yankee force at Pickens and on the Island has been greatly reduced, so much so that the few remaining are reminding for fear that our men may make a dash upon them. A few nights ago there was an awful panic among them, and the utmost consternation pervaded every heart at the report that the "rebels" were about to make an attack. Gen. Jones, who succ<
The Flag Officer takes this opportunity to renew to the officers and crews under his command his thanks for the gallantry, perseverance and determination with which they sustained, on those days, the honor of the Flag and the Country. They may very soon be called upon to give some further evidence that they will sustain the highs character and reputation acquired by the squadron in that conflict. Frank Buchanan, Flag Officer, Comd'g Squadron, Wateris of Virginia. Naval Hospital, March 21st, 1862. Federal Hendagent exposed. It will be remembered that in his report of the evacuation of Columbus, the Federal General, Halleck, made use of this language: "Our cavalry from a Paddock marched into Columbia at 6 P. M., driving before them the enemy's rear guard. The flag of the Union is now floating over the boasted Gibraltar of the west. Finding himself completely turned on both sides of the Mississippi, the enemy was obliged to evacuate or surrender. "Large quanti

[Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.]thing in Alabama Montgomery Ala., March 21, 1862. No State in the Confederacy has more nobly carried herself in the present great struggle than Alabama — the land of flowers. It almost makes a true Southerner shout for joy to hear the planters speak of what they are willing to do and to suffer for the maintenance of their rights and independence — In many portions of the State if one were to plant at ordinary crop of cotton he would not raise a pound, for public sentiment is so intensified that his fences would be thrown down and be treated as a traitor. Those who stay at home, in many sections are signing instruments of writing pledging themselves to divide with the families of volunteers as long as they have a perk of meal or a pound of meat. Gov. Shorter's call for more men is meeting with a noble response, while almost every shop in the State is making pikes, knives, and other weapons with which to make the invader "bite the d
