for the last-named person the name of our sorely-tried parent, Uncle Sam. For information, I take up to-day's Courier, the oldest and most respectable of Charleston dailies, at random. I find in it a communication, over the expressive signature of Rifle, suggesting that one of the crack regiments of the North should charter a couple of steamboats and come on to Charleston, to the rescue of the forts; that the first shedding of fraternal blood may be precipitated in a manner congenial to the aspirations of youthful South Carolina! The same paper chronicles an application for five hundred of Colt's pistols, received from Alabama, under the title of Short armaments! Here, as a nineteenth century anniversary of the divine annunciation of Peace on earth and good will towards man, (the Courier, by-the-by, has a very pretty and decidedly pious editorial on the subject), we have the border ruffian spirit endorsed and approved of as the ultimatum of human reason! --Evening Post, Dec. 31.
A letter from Hayneville, in Alabama, says the people are greatly excited on two subjects: the certain withdrawal of Alabama from the Union, and negro insurrections. About twenty miles from that place, they have discovered a plot among the negroes, headed by a white man, or perhaps more than one, to rise and murder all the white folks they could find. The plot was providentially discovered, the white man arrested, and, after establishing their guilt beyond a doubt, he was hung up, together with five or six negroes. Another plot has been discovered in another direction. Three white men have been arrested and about thirty negroes — report says they will hang. The white men are northern men. Another letter from Greensboro, Alabama, says: There was a servile insurrection about sixty miles north of this place, last week, when four whites were killed and sixteen negroes were hung. In Montgomery, for the same thing, two white men (abolitionists) and four negroes were hung.
The height of impudence.--Parson Brownlow thus felicitously describes the height of impudence. An Alabama secession paper inquires if the border States know what is The Height of Impudence? We answer for the border States, that it is to see and hear a man swaggering and swearing in every crowd he enters, that he will go out of the Union because he can't get his rights, by having the privilege guaranteed to take slaves in the Territories, when in fact, he does not own a negro in the world, never did, and never will; and withal can't get credit in any store in the country where he lives, for a wool hat or a pair of brogans!
The Mobile Mercury says that the South Carolinians will have to learn to be a little more conforming to the opinions of others, before they can expect to associate comfortably with even the cotton States, under a federative government. It is pleasing to see that Alabama is so rapidly getting acquainted with her Palmetto sister.--Prov. Jour.
The Montgomery (Ala.) Weekly Post contains the following:-- too good to be: lost.--A countryman was in the town of Lumpkin, Ga., last week, and some one asked him how he liked the war news. He replied, Very well. Are you to go? he was asked. Yes, he replied. Are you not afraid? No. If I should see a Yankee with his gun levelled and looking right at me, I would draw out my pocketbook, and ask him what he would take for his gun, and right there the fight would end. Yes, the Yankee would probably sell him his gun, if the Lumpkiner had enough money to buy it; but as the load would still belong to the Yankee, he would probably deliver that before he did the gun.--Jackson (Ia.) Star.
The Mobile (Ala.) Advertiser, warm in its commendation of the declaration of war by the Congress of the seceded States, says:-- Let patriotic citizens go forth upon the trackless war paths of the ocean to fight for their country in the most effective manner. Hundreds and hundreds of millions of the property of the enemy invite them to spoil him — to spoil these Egyptians of the North, who would coerce us to staying when we strove peaceably to make our exodus to independence of their oppressive thrall; to go forth from degrading fellowship with them. The richly laden ships of the enemy swarm on every sea, and are absolutely unprotected. The harvest is ripe; let it be gathered, and we will strike the enemy to the heart — for we hit his pocket, his most sensitive part. His treasure ships, laden with California wealth, traverse Southern waters. Let them be the prize of the bravest and most enterprising. His commerce is the very life of the enemy's solvency and financial vita

[Then a speech from Commissioner No. 3, and a pause.] Mr. Bates--Are you through? Commissioners--Yes, sir; you have our case. Mr. Bates--What States did you say composed your Confederacy? Commissioners--Mississippi, South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Texas, and Louisiana. Mr. Bates--And Mr. Jefferson Davis is your President? Commissioners--He is. We are proud of him. Mr. Bates--We know Mr. Davis well by reputation. He is the same gentleman who stumped his State f we have no reason to be proud of him or his antecedents; I think I may safely say, that if you have brought with you to London the necessary funds to pay off, principal and interest, the repudiated millions owing to our people by your States of Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida, there is a reasonable prospect of your raising a small amount in this market! Our Mr. Sturgis will be happy to dine with you at 8 o'clock to-morrow evening. Exeunt omnes. While this scene was being enacted at the
170. secession song — Dixie land. The popular Dixie land has been adopted by the Secessionists, instead of the Star-spangled Banner, as their National song. The Huntsville (Ala.) Examiner gives the version sung in that State:-- Away down South, in the Carolina, They have guns and the ready rhino; Look away! look away I look away I Dixie Land! They've the men to do the fighting-- There's no use in scratchina and bitina; Hooray! hooray! hooray! Dixie Land! chorus. Oh, I'm glad I am in Dixie! Hooray! hooray! In Dixie Land I take my stand, To live and die in Dixie! Away! away! away down South in Dixie! Away! away! away down South in Dixie! The sovereign State of Alabama Will try her hand before they lam her; Look away! look away! look away! Dixie Land! So will our Mississippi brother, And Georgia, too, our mortal mother; Hooray! hooray! hooray! Dixie land! And Louisiana then will come, And Texas, too, will help us some; Look away! look away! look away! Dixie Land! And A
