Movements at the South. Hoisting the Palmette Flag — Resignation of Federal Officers — Speeches at the Capital of South Carolina--Important Message of the Governor of Georgia--Retaliation on the North--Views at Washington, &c. Charleston, Nov. 8. --The bark James Gray, owned by Cushing, of Boston, and now lying at our wharves, under instructions from her owner, to-day hoisted the Palmetto flag and fired a salute of 15 guns. New Orleans, Nov. 8. --Placards are posted about the city calling a convention of those favorable to the formation of corps of Minute Men. Columbia, S. C., Nov. 8. --The Speaker of the House of Delegates last night received a dispatch from Virginia, tendering the services of a volunteer corps in the event of South Carolina seceding. Edmund Ruffin, of Virginia, spoke here last night. He said Southern independence had been a life-long study with him, and he thought it could only be secured by the secession of South Car

Cushing and Everett. Among the last of the fallen Conservatives are Cushing and Everett. Commodore Stockton, who swore some time ago that if a Northern Regiment should march upon the South through New Jersey he would raise a Jersey regiment to oppose it, has also lowered his flag, in a late speech, in which he makes his stereotyped allusion to the personal combats in which he has been engaged. We believe the list of the Northern Conservatives is now pretty much exhausted. Every one of tCushing and Everett. Commodore Stockton, who swore some time ago that if a Northern Regiment should march upon the South through New Jersey he would raise a Jersey regiment to oppose it, has also lowered his flag, in a late speech, in which he makes his stereotyped allusion to the personal combats in which he has been engaged. We believe the list of the Northern Conservatives is now pretty much exhausted. Every one of them is sustaining Lincoln in what they know to be an unconstitutional exercise of power, and a most inhuman and bloody purpose — But it is worth all the hubbub and confusion to have this inside view of human nature before the Great Day when, --fearful words,--the secrets of all hearts shall be revealed.
rilled. Abingdon, as all are aware, has been made a place of rendezvous for the counties of Lee, Scott, Russell and Washington. A few days since Governor Floyd made an excellent address to the volunteer companies. As a matter of course, it was like all he says and does, right to the point. The members of the old political parties are down upon their former leaders and champions of the North--men whom each party delighted to honor. I refer to Cass, Pierce, Buchanan, Douglas, Cushing, Dickenson, Fillmore, Everett and Stockton. How manfully each of these "Northern men with Southern principles," in former days, contended for the rights of the South! But then they wanted votes of Southern men! Now they want to build up a popularity at home. Old Buck once said that if the North ever attempted to interfere with Southern rights or "invade the South, he would put his knapsack on his back and his musket on his shoulder, and travel South to fight in her defence!" Fillmore s
iewing Claiborne's Life and Times of Quitman, in DeBow's Review, the writer says: An episode may be here tolerated in regard to the conduct of the celebrated Mississippi Rifles, under charge of Colonel, now President Jefferson Davis, on the field of Buena Vista. The great movement then made by Davis is said to have been without previous parallel in the art of war, and was regarded by the Duke of Wellington as new and masterly. It was subsequently made, we learn on the authority of Gen. Cushing, on the fields of the Crimes. "The battle had been raging some time with fluctuating fortunes, and was setting against us, when Gen. Taylor, with Col. Davis and others, arrived on the field Several regiments (which were subsequently rallied, and fought bravely,) were in full retreat; O'Brien, after having his men and horses completely cut up, had been compelled to draw off the guns, and Bragg, with almost superhuman energy, was sustaining the brunt of the fight. Many officers of distinct
the publicans and harlots should enter the kingdom of Heaven before them, and we have little doubt that the Conservatives of the North are as far behind the same classes as their predecessors in Jerusalem. Such Scribes and Pharisees as Everett, Cushing, Fillmore, Dickinson & Co., are neither as honest, virtuous nor manly as the rabble of New York and Boston, who, in their ignorance, believe that the cause in which they are engaged is the cause of patriotism and freely expose their lives in itsalism, and the rankest abolitionism. Let every man read the speech of Everett upon the John Brown raid; the speech of Fillmore at Buffalo declaring that the South ought to resist the election of a Black Republican President; the speeches of Cushing, Dickinson, Butler and others, before the election, substantially to the same effect, and then ask — What are we to think of these men personally, individually and morally, in the light shed upon their characters by their present course?

be forwarded to his friends, (it has not been done, however,) and that our wounded were receiving the care of their most skillful surgeons. I then asked for Doctor Cushing and myself the privilege of visiting our wounded and prisoners to see them, and to receive messages from them to their friends. He replied that General Floyddressed to General Floyd the following note, viz: Peter Creek, Aug. 27, 1861.-- Brig. General John B. Floyd--General: I am here under a flag of truce, with Dr. Cushing, of the 7th Regiment O. V. M., to look after our dead and wounded in the late battle at Cross Lanes.--We are informed by Col. Finny, as we knew we would be, thayd, Brig. Gen. Com'g Army of Kanawha. Of course, nothing further could be done. I will only add that, while waiting for this note, I — I say "1," for Dr. Cushing was in one of his silent moods — had long conversations with Col. Finny and Major Honnsel on a variety of topics, not ignoring the one great topic at issue, and
atter sent to jail. Michael Moran, charged with being drunk and disorderly, and trespassing on the St. Charles Hospital, was discharged. Three soldiers, heretofore comitted to jail, were delivered to their officers. Mosses, slave to Isaac Staples, charged, with stealing bacon, clothes, &c., to the value of $14.50 was ordered to receive 30 stripes. David P. Turner was sent to jail for being disorderly in the streets. Mrs. Mary M' Donough's complaint against Lawrence, Cushing was dismissed. George Sharp, charged with shooting a negro, was acquitted of this charge, but fined $5 for firing a gun in the city. The case of Thomas Conly, charged with stabbing a man named Doyle, was continued till this morning. Mrs. Margaret McMahan's case of assault and battery came up again. Mrs. Lancy, the prosecutrix, and several other ladies, were present, and a war of words was at one time threatened but was prevented by His Honor's firmness. The parties complain
iberty, and would not allow it to be overthrown, except from some great controlling public conviction of the necessity of submission to the alternative. What is that sentiment, and what the facts in which it originates? We find the best men of the North--those, at least, whom we have been in the habit of regarding as their best men — concurring in a common purpose with the worst, of upholding Lincoln's Government in all its measures, right, or wrong. Buchanan, Dallas, Cass Dickinson, Cushing, Richardson, Douglas, and Cadwalladervie with the Blairs, Seward, Greeley, Sherman, Weed, Grow, Sumner, and Hale, in giving their active support to the war, and in earnest exhortations for its vigorous prosecution on the most formidable scale. Indeed, the rank and file of their armies, so far as composed of native citizens, are composed three to one of the men who belonged before the war to the Democratic party, the party which took sides with the South in resisting, at the inception, the
y which the public sentiment of the North, a large portion of which was once so strongly in favor of justice to the South, and so violently hostile to measures of coercion, has been wholly changed. It can no longer be a matter of conjecture why Vallandigham, Pierce, and Bright, are the solitary voices among twenty millions to refuse their sanction to this war; it can no longer be necessary to surmise why so sudden a change was wrought in the sentiments of such fierce fire-eaters as Dallan, Cushing, and Picayune Butler; it can no longer admit of conjecture why such time corverane Buchanan, Fillmore, Everett, and Cass, hoary and grizzled worshippers of the seven principles of the loaves and fishes, became such zealous advocates of the Union, right or wrong. The fact that six hundred millions of dollars per annum are expended in the prosecution of this war, coupled as it is with the sudden conversion from bitter opponents of the war into its rantipole advocates, of at least half of
