all night, pressed three horses en route, also a buggy, his own breaking down. By-the-way, pressing a horse has now become common in this region. Mr. Points says they have two thousand of the best arms, and that some twenty thousand were burnt by the Federal troops. He says the country between this and Winchester is alive with soldiers. As I came from church this morning, I witnessed the arrest of a suspicious character, who had been tampering with negroes, and said he was going to Lincoln. He is in jail. All such persons, their guilt being established, should be unceremoniously swung up as examples. Notice was given in all the churches to-day, requesting each family to observe from 6 to 7 A. M., as a season of special prayer. This was adopted as preferable to a daily union prayer meeting, which was first proposed. Our people at large will be ready to fight. O, let them not forget to pray. How precious and appropriate are some of the Psalms now! I met yesterday
by so numerous an army, though in tended for their security, really places them in most imminent peril. It is said that Lincoln starts at the mention of Jeff.Davis or Wise, or Ben McCullogh, and that a body-guard of Kansas cut-throats' under the le the Government, and some of the finest vessels in the service? The Navy-Yard was unoccupied and undefended; and upon Mr. Lincoln's own theory, that there can be no secession, and that Virginia, and every part of her, is still under the Federal jure. There is but one possible chance for the early cessation of hostilities; and that chance lies in the blunders of Lincoln. It is impossible but that his incompetency and folly will bring him to a speedy downfall. It is not an unfrequent circntry from the evils which those very follies produce. In two more months the North itself will pray for the downfall of Lincoln. They can afford to tolerate his Administration much less than the South. He is the South's most effective ally; he is
he train moved off three cheers were again given with a hearty good will. The people of this State are entirely a unit.--There are no party lines now; all such distinctions are buried, and East, West, North, and South, of the Old North State, rally man to man, heart to heart, in defence of the liberties of the South. In feeling and sentiment, North Carolina is out of the Lincoln Government, and instead of meeting under the once glorious Stars and Stripes, now the dirty insignia of Abraham Lincoln, she rallies her sons under the Confederate flag — determined to have liberty or death. North Carolina will never turn back; her people have taken the honor and keeping of the State in their own hands, and they will not wait for the incitements of eloquence. Their hearts leap to the summons and their blades to her defence, as to the cry of her mother. I have attended many meetings since I arrived in Raleigh, brought about by this great crisis, and I firmly believe that no State in th
rt of the concentration of troops about twelve miles from Washington, or six from Alexandria, it is certain that the secessionists are earnestly at work, but there is no public knowledge of their plans and purposes. Alexandria, April 22. --A plot has leaked out in Washington, concocted by the notorious Jim Lane, Cassius M. Clay, and the marauder Pomeroy, who have organized a band sworn to force every man who was in favor of the Southern Confederacy to take an oath of fealty to Abraham Lincoln, or leave the city within a certain number of hours, under the penalty of being hanged. The "States and Union" newspaper has, therefore, been discontinued for the present, and several of those connected with the office have come to Alexandria. The police are compelled to protect Virginians from injury. Yesterday morning, Dr. Garnett, brother-in-law of ex-Governor Wise, was surrounded in front of his house by a Black Republican mob, and would undoubtedly have been killed had n
nihilation of that regiment even to that of Massachusetts soldiers. A man can't help being born on Cape Cod or "down East," but he can help enjoying your hospitality and then trying to cut your throat. The Seventh Regiment knows the way to Richmond. Let them come here once more, and, for their city's sake and their own, they shall have such a reception as they deserve. One more illustration is furnished by the conservative press. But yesterday denouncing the sectional government of Lincoln as one which the South could not and would not submit to, it is to-day echoing the war-cry of Greeley with an uproar that almost drowns the voice of their new leader. We were not surprised at the sudden somersault of the New York Herald. No one ever suspected the Sawney of that sheet of honesty or manliness. But there were those who regarded such journals as the New York Express as honest and honorable. Brooks had partaken of Virginia hospitality, his wife was a Virginia lady, and his p
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.the true spirit. Amelia Co., Va., April 21, 1861. On Saturday, April the 20th, the students of the Amelia Academy, after a spirited address from the Principal, Wm. H. Harrison, with great joy flung proudly to the breeze, from the top of a staff 60 feet high, the flag of the Confederate States, organized themselves as a Home Guard, and made arrangements to elect officers and procure arms, Amelia is fully aroused. The ladies, God bless them ! show the spirit of 76. One of the first in the county, in fortune, family, and every grace and quality that can adorn her sex, said to me yesterday, with great feeling, that if she had ten sons she would gladly send them to the war. With such a spirit animating men, women and boys, and God and truth on our side, we may surely defy Lincoln and his myrmidons Wigwam.
