eir families should be provided for during their absence. He expresses his willingness to sacrifice his all for the common defence against the fanatic horde of Abe Lincoln. What Wythe county is doing will be seen from the following: The "Grays," one of the first companies called into service, numbers upwards of 90 men; torrespondent of the Lynchburg Republican, writes from Craig county, May 3d, as follows: A passenger in the stage from the West this evening, informs us that Lincoln has four thousand troops at Gallipolis, Ohio, which is, you know, only three miles from Point Pleasant, on the Virginia side. The people of Kanawha and the other border counties are said to be greatly excited. The news this evening will put this whole section to moving, and we will endeavor to show Lincoln and his hirelings and unprincipled mercenaries, that we will meet them at all points, and dispute their passage. They must fall in these mountains if they attempt to invade us. Our mot
The Havana press on the crisis. --The Havana papers publish in detail the news from the United States, and comment voluminously upon it. The Prensa says: The confusion which must reign in the United States, with the calling out of the militia and the preparations for war, can scarcely be conceived. The general dissatisfaction, however, manifests itself in a thousand different ways; because the people well understood that the result of all these sacrifices will be that the drama will end where it ought to have begun, with the recognition of the independence and nationality of the two sections into which the old republic is already divided, and the conclusion of treaties of amity and commerce. But, in the meantime, disaster is to succeed disaster without the possibility of remedy.--What blindness on the part of the Republican party and President Lincoln!
hat the consultations of the Cabinet are, as they ought to be, confidentially kept. The above is predicated on information from the highest authority. With regard to the interview between the President and the Committee of the Maryland Legislature, as reported, the Baltimore Exchange says: The above is the dispatch of the agent of the Associated Press. It is needless to say that the facts are willfully distorted. The Hon. R. M. McLane was the spokesman in the interview with Mr. Lincoln, and we are assured that the dignity and honor of our State were fully sustained by him. His official report to the Legislature will no doubt shortly appear, when a true statement will be presented to the public. The National Intelligencer thus announces the resignation of Judge Campbell: We regret to announce to our readers that the Hon. John A. Campbell has resigned his appointment as Associate Justice of the Bench of the Supreme Court of the United States. That tribunal los

Interview between President Lincoln and Hon. Garrett Davis, of Kentucky. The Hon. Garrett Davis, of Kentucky, who recently visited Washington for the purpose of consulting with the President and other members of the Government, in reference to the National troubles, furnishes the Louisville Journal with a lengthy account of his interview with President Lincoln, from which we make the subjoined extracts: I found the President frank and calm, but decided and firm. He expressed deep coPresident Lincoln, from which we make the subjoined extracts: I found the President frank and calm, but decided and firm. He expressed deep concern and regret for the existing condition of public affairs, and his hope that there would yet be a restoration of the Union, and peace and amity among all the States. He remarked that neither he nor any other President who had been elected by a party, could administer the Government in accordance with his own opinions and judgment, but must make some departure to satisfy those who had placed him in power. That, before the Carolinians had made their attack on Fort Sumter he had decided not

Outrageous Treatment of a Tennessean. --Mr. J. E. Dromgoole, Jr., of Rutherford county, Tennessee, was in Martin county, Indiana, on the 27th ult., and for expressing himself in favor of the South, he was set upon by a pack of Black Republican bullies, who beat him in a most shameful manner, tearing out one of his eyes. It is barbarians like these who have taken complete control of Lincoln and his Government, and if he does not move fast enough they will send him "kiting" from place and power.
owed with fear and respect for the brave, chivalrous men who compose Gen. Bragg's army, and continue their determination to act only on the defensive, the attack may be deferred, and the weakening of the garrison and consequent abandonment of the Fort be left to the sure but slow destroyers, July and August, with their train of diseases, including yellow fever — a disorder that a garrison of Yankees not acclimatized will be rather lia When it is remembered, however, that these tools of Lincoln have survived the horrible distempers surrounding their nativity and life in the cess pools and purlieus of the cities of the North, confidence in the mode of attack as alluded to becomes some what impaired. Secrecy has not yet been removed from the report of the Secretary of War and accompanying documents to Congress, conveying information concerning the army forces now in service, their distribution, &c.; also, showing the expenditures of the War Department up to that date, and exhib
d, I believe, to attach this company, which will be an infantry company, to Col. Reger A Pryor's Regiment, now forming and composed as yet of six companies. They are promised the best kind of arms. It is also proposed to form here an artillery company, and as there exists in the county abundant material for this much-needed arm of the service, and many persons prefer it, I will state that the list is now ready for all to sign who desire, with every prospect of success. We desire to man some of the guns, now being planted at Yorktown, and to do our part to prevent Lincoln's pirates from effecting a landing, and to keep off the Border ruffians from your fair city. We had a severe frost on Sunday morning last, doing smart damage to the early vegetables, also to the corn, and I fear to the early wheat; but the rain now falling will revive things very much. Our county patrol is working finely now, and the various equals of the Home Guard muster often and drill. E. W.
Latest news by mail. The New York Herald's Washington correspondent telegraphs to that paper on the 4th inst. another programme of the opening of hostilities. We copy a portion: The twenty days given by President Lincoln's proclamation expire to-morrow, and during the ensuing week other important movements will be made. Ellsworth's Zouaves are ordered to start for Alexandria on Monday. This corroborates what I wrote you of the first point of attack. There will be no battle there, as most of the secession troops are said to be withdrawn. The marching orders for the Sixth Massachusetts Regiment are probably also for Alexandria, to support the Zouaves. The object of seizing Alexandria is, not only to get possession of the Custom-House, but to open the canal there for the passage of Cumberland coal, which is the best coal burned in locomotives and steamers. I know that gentlemen have represented to the President within a few days the importance of this canal

Northern Outrages. --The New York Day Book says: A gentleman, an editor of a paper in Pennsylvania, called into our office the other day, and stated that he had been driven out of the village by parties who threatened his life, and scarcely had he left when a mob surrounded his house and rendered even his family unsafe. It is only the other day that a Democratic editor in Troy, who condemned the war policy of Lincoln, was forced to flee to Canada for his life, and we are credibly informed that a man was hanged in Ulster county for expressing his sympathy for the South in the present struggle.
