lan of the campaign. That great military genius, Raymond, of the New York Times, generally known as "the little villain," an epithet bestowed upon him by his courteous contemporary, Greeley, of the N. Y. Tribune, has burst out in an amazing explosion of wrath against Virginia, throwing out streams of red-hot lava, that threaten to submerge this unhappy Common wealth from the Potomac to the Ohio. If the U. S. Government had only hit upon the happy device of sending Raymond to relieve Major Anderson, we can easily conceive that Charleston would have surrendered at sight. He did publish wise plans, we believe, by which that object could be effected; but we suppose the Government failed to appreciate their merit, for Charleston is still safe and defiant. Raymond was a spectator of the military operations in the Sardinian contest, and is said to have made better time in a retreat from an Austrian regiment than was ever known in the history of war. We therefore listen with respect to
which this perfidious and execrable city presents in its attitude towards the South, it would be the absurd exaggeration of its power, the hideous grimaces and Falstaffian boastfulness with which it tries to intimidate the Southern people. Every reader must remember the verbose and grandiloquent style in which the late expedition to Charleston was described by the New York press, and any one would have thought from those accounts that Charleston was to be swallowed at a mouthful. They sent the most powerful fleet ever collected in one squadron by the United States; they sent six thousand fighting men, and every variety of munitions and equipments of war. And yet, Major Anderson was made to surrender, and the mighty fleet stood off during the fight, and did not dare to land a man, nor fire a gun, nor raise a finger for his relief. When New York utters "great, swelling words of vanity," men ought not to forget the late illustration, off Charleston harbor, of promise and performance.

rginia was joyously received here by every Southerner, and sent a thrill through every heart. We are rejoiced to know that the fires of patriotism are burning brightly upon the altars of the good old Commonwealth; that she is still "true to her ancient fame and worthy of her ancestral honors." Yesterday the 5th class was called upon to swear allegiance to Lincoln's Government. --Out of the ten Southerners, nine refused to take the oath. They are threatened with having their names ignominiously struck from the roll. They will rather consider it an honor to have their names erased for not swearing allegiance to a power hostile to their every interest. In a week there will not be a Cadet here from the South. The following is a list of those who refused to take the oath; W. G. Waller, Va.; J. W. Dale, Del; J. W. Tetter, Ky; J. E. Murray, A. S.; B. A. Terrett, at large; Thos. P. Turner, Va.; E. W. Anderson, at large; J. E. Craige, N. C.; F. Masi, Va. South. Respectfully,
