e 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. We hope all this will soon pass off, but there is great fear that inurrections will rise all over the South. --Evening Post, Jan. 10.

Republican, Governor Brown of Georgia acted hastily in seizing the New York vessels. Governor Morgan did not refuse to accede to the demand for the surrender of the arms seized by the police of this city. On receiving the telegraphic message from Governor Brown he wrote to inquire as to its authenticity; and (says the Republican) so far as appears, he gave no intimation of his intention to refuse the demand for the. arms. The same paper adds this significant paragraph, from which it is to be inferred that Governor Brown hoped to accomplish a master-stroke by an act of devotion to the South, so as to strengthen his claims for a prominent place in the new Confederation: Under these circumstances it were impossible to beat it out of the brains of some uncharitable persons that our Governor, in his hasty proceedings, was quite as intent on bringing something from Montgomery as he was from New York. For ourselves, we pretend to no opinion on the subject. --Evening Post, Feb. 15.
the writer of an elaborate four-column article in the Charleston Mercury contends that the prohibition of the slave-trade by the provisional government at Montgomery is intolerable — that it must be rebelled against. He says that it sets a stain, a stigma, upon slavery itself, and is little if any better than abolition. The secession party has swallowed the apple of discord, and the seeds are vigorously sprouting in its stomach. Jeff. Davis, in his Montgomery speech, said: Fellow-citizeMontgomery speech, said: Fellow-citizens and brethren of the Confederate States of America--for now we are brethren not in name merely, but in fact — men of one flesh, one bone, &c. The confederationists may be of one bone with their new President and Vice-President, but if they are of one flesh with them, they are the lankest nation of bipeds ever known to natural history. Save the Union, and make kindling wood of all your partisan platforms. The Nashville Union, having despaired of being able to sustain secession in Tenness
nearly all the favorites of Mr. Buchanan are engaged in the secession conspiracy. The monstrous transaction of Twiggs, in Texas, which bears the double character of unmitigated treason and individual dishonesty, has been long in process, and the celebrated Ben McCullough, one of Mr. Buchanan's most intimate friends, has been engaged in it. His household editor, William M. Browne, is at Montgomery, assisting disunion with all his ability, while his late Secretary of the Treasury, his late Secretary of War, his late Secretary of the Interior, and most of those who advocated his policy in Congress, either hold position under the Southern Confederacy, or occupy prominent places in the organization which sustains it. --Phila. Press.
Mr. George N. Sanders, who is now in Montgomery, telegraphs from there yesterday, that in order to prevent anarchy and war the Democrats at the north should at once rebel and accept the constitution of the Conferate States. How the rebellion of a political minority against the lawful government can prevent anarchy and war is somewhat difficult to conceive. But what means this well known Democrat by the term should at once rebel ? Is it only a matter of time? Is the Democratic party pledged to rebellion, and only waits the occasion? Who will explain.--Commercial Advertiser, April 11.
In the Virginia Convention, when it was proposed to send a committee to ask Mr. Lincoln what was the object of his military movements, Mr. Carlisle suggested that a similar committee should be sent to Montgomery to ascertain from Jeff. Davis what he intended to do with all the troops he is raising. Henry A. Wise enquired whether Mr. Carlisle would be named as one of the committee to be sent to Montgomery, for, if so, that would be the last they would ever see of him. That remark was in theMontgomery, for, if so, that would be the last they would ever see of him. That remark was in the true spirit of the Secessionists; they have taken their States out of the Union without consulting the Border States; they are trying to complicate us in difficulties and place us in false positions in the hope to compel us to join them; and, if we have the temerity to ask why large armies are raised and extraordinary expenses incurred, the threat of murder is made at once. Lynch law is the only law proffered to the friends of the Union in the Confederate States.--Louisville Journal, April 23.
The Savannah Republican says: We were shown yesterday by Collector Boston, a number of the new Treasury Notes, of various denominations, just issued by the government of the Confederate States. They are handsomely executed, with appropriate vignettes in green, and bear an interest of one-cent per diem on the hundred dollars. We annex the inscription of the $500 note: A 500 Twelve months after date the Confederate States of America Will pay the bearer five hundred dollars, With interest at five cents per day. Montgomery, April 8, 1861. Alex. B. Clitherall, April 8, 1861. E. C. Flmore, Treasurer. (Lower margin.) Receivable in payment of all Dues except Export Duties. --N. Y. Evening Post, April 16.
The following advertisement appears in The Mobile Advertiser: 75,000 coffins wanted.--Proposals will be received to supply the Confederacy with 75,000 Black coffins. No proposals will be entertained coming North of Mason and Dixon's line. Direct of Jeff. Davis, Montgomery, Ala.--N. Y. Tribune.
New Orleans, April 25.--In the ranks of the Louisville Blues, now at Montgomery, from Barbour County, is the Rev. Alexander McLenan, of the Methodist Episcopal Church, who, with his two sons, have enlisted with the company for the term of twelve months, in the service of the Confederate States. In a speech made by him at Clayton, on their way to Columbus, he remarked that our cause was honored of God, and He would crown it with success. Mr. McLenan is upwards of sixty years of age, and the greater part of his manhood has been dedicated to the service of the ministry. Equality and justice to the South is a motto to which he has always been religiously devoted.--Columbus Sun, April 21.
is expecting them to attack the city every night; he keeps a sentinel walking in front of his bed-room all night, and often gets so frightened that he leaves the White House, and sleeps out, no one knows where. These are facts. Mrs. Lincoln, a few nights since, heard whispering in the hall in front of her room; she rose from bed, dressed, and sat up the remainder of the night watching for the Southern army to blow up the White House, as they are confidently expecting it. Senator Gwin's son, a fine-looking, intelligent young man, about twenty years old, has thrown up a cadetship at West Point, and gone to Montgomery to seek an appointment in the Confederate Army. The Senator himself has gone to California, and his family have broken up housekeeping, and will spend the summer on his plantation in Isaquena County, Mississippi, and thus Mrs. Gwin and her daughter may grace New Orleans with her presence during the summer, if there is no epidemic in your city.--N. O. Delta, April 28.
