ss energy, his restless ardor, his impulsiveness, are the very qualities to make a great warrior, and just what are required now in Virginia. In war nothing can be done too quickly, after it is determined on. Celerity is the first element of victory. The end to be accomplished is to drive out the invader from Virginia, and to conquer him finally. Are we not able to do it? If not, we ought to cease blowing. But we are able — we have the men to do the work, they have gone for that purpose, and it is time they were at it. "Wise is the man for the business, and we expect him to fight when he meets the enemy, let the odds be as they may; and if the enemy will not come, he will go after him. But he will have to meet the best troops Lincoln has; Western men, many of whom have in their veins Virginia and Kentucky blood, and there-fore may be counted on to come to time. It is less glory to whip the New England, New York and Pennsylvania men, than those hardy pioneers of the West."
" always heretofore the flag of the stranger and the persecuted, now the emblem of a prosecuted sectional party, and with the cry of "Union," the janissaries of Mr. Lincoln destroy all State rights and civil liberty whenever it suits their pleasure or malice. Without alluding to the despotic outrages which have characterized t a pass from the Clerk, to fill the spacious apartment devoted to the press. The present Congress will not hesitate to endorse the unconstitutional acts of Mr. Lincoln, the Cabinet and his military officers.--They will pass appropriation bills quickly, and it will be no matter of astonishment should they agree to suspend (legally) the writ of Habeas Corpus, a right which Mr. Lincoln has already usurped, and for which he is liable to impeachment. The people of the border States have staunch friends in H. C. Burnett, of Kentucky, John S. Phelps, of Missouri, C. S. Valiandigham and Geo. H. Pendleton, of Ohio, and, let it be hoped, in Henry May, of Mar

sit to that most interesting, and now especially important region, the "lead mines" of Why the. It is to these mines we must look for those interesting missives that our brave boys know so well how to transmit in and to the cowardly carcasses of Lincoln's minions, when they can have even the half of a chance, and none, among all our troops, with more unerring accuracy than the hardy sharp-shooters of Carroll. The polite and gentlemanly manager of the mines, Mr. Wm. Kohler, kindly accompanied mead is equal to three tons per day, and the mines and furnaces are worked day and night, Sabbath included — the pressing wants of the service requiring it. The quantity of buckshot made per day would be equal to at least five per carcass of each Lincoln soldier now anywhere near to Virginia. Besides the mines referred to, I ought to mention the operations of Judge Fulton in manufacturing lead, one mile below the first named, and where he is making from one and a half to three tons per week.

ing about two hours, the throng retired to the table, where the ladies of the neighborhood had a beautiful repast spread, with all the delicacies of the season. After dinner was over, an address was delivered by Capt. W. J. Old. Subsequently, the grey-haired veterans presented the juveniles with a beautiful cannon, (four-pounder,) which will be very expertly used under the command of Capt. Anderson. We have sent into the service of the State from this immediate neighborhood three companies already, and there are two others nearly ready to take their leave. We shall then be without any soldiers, except the silvery-headed veterans and the juveniles, and I am happy to say, if needed, they too, like their brave boys who have gone, will buckle on their armor and march to the field of battle to meet A be Lincoln's cut-throats. We have just harvested the best crop of wheat we have had for many years, and our corn crop (very much enlarged) bids fair to be a bountiful yield.
From the Pacific coast. Late intelligence from San Francisco states that the steamer Sonora had sailed thence for New York with $2,065,368. It will take a good many such shipments to swell up Lincoln's $400,000,000, even should it all escape the privateers, and be given up to the Hessian Government on arriving at its destination. The following items are from the San Francisco papers: Trade remains completely stagnant. Money is plenty, but the rates of interest to borrowers vary considerably. Exchange on New York is at 5 to 6 per cent, discount. Some important sales of wheat, to make up a cargo of the ship Old Colony, have been made at $1.82½ to $1.90 per 100 lbs. Samples of new wheat begin to make their appearance in market. The Federal appointees under the present Administration are nearly all New Englanders. Under the last Administration they were nearly all natives of the Southern States, with a preponderance in favor of Virginia. General Johnson
C. S. Steamer Sumter. --The sailing of this steamer, from New Orleans, on a cruise, has been briefly announced by telegraph. The Picayune, of the 3d inst., says: The first vessel of our little navy, the C. S. steamer-of-war Sumter, sailed on Saturday, last on a cruise, having ran the paper blockade of Lincoln-Abolition war steamers off the mouth of the Mississippi. As she has now made a good offing, and is far out on the ocean wave, we hope soon to hear of some dashing exploits in the way of captures. She has a picked crew, and her commander is known to be a most brave and chivalrous sailor, and he has under him a most gallant set of officers. The following is the list: Commander, Raphael Semmes; Lieutenants, John M. Kells, R. F. Chapman, W. E. Evans. J. M. Stribling; Paymaster, Henry Myers; Passed Assistant Surgeon, Francis L. Galt; Lieutenant of Marines, Becket K. Howell; Midshipmen, Richard F. Armstrong, Wm. A. Hicks, A. G. Hudgins, J. D. Wilson; Gunner, Thos.
[Communicated.] To John Henry Upshur, (formerly, and rightly, Nottingham,) Lieutenant in the Navy of the remaining United States of America. Myself, together with others formerly your friends, John, founding our faith in your integrity upon the rather fair promise of your youth, had entertained, down to a quite recent date, a faint yet lingering hope that your continued adherence to the miserable and tyrannous rule of Lincoln and his Cabinet might be referred to extraordinary and insuperable difficulties in the way of your escape from the malicious vigilance or your Federal associates; that your remaining with them was an involuntary detention; that your heart, still "in the right place," and full of grateful and fond remembrances of mother, friends, Virginia, home, if not openly, at least secretly, sighed for deliverance from the unholy trammels, and that you only awaited the auspicious moment to seize and avail yourself of it. But, alas! too many noble spirits, whos
re they (the Southern-rights men,) spoke for the purpose of preventing the Union men from hearing but one side of the question. Having by these means, procured a large majority in East Tennessee for the Union, they set to work to transfer it to Lincoln. The delegates of a Convention, which was held at Knoxville before the election, were called to meet at Greenville on the 17th of June. These delegates were not elected by the people, but those of them who were sent at all, were appointed by ling Union companies, and exciting their fellow-citizens to rebellion. They will be put down. A majority of East Tennessee will not sustain them. Besides, our worthy Governor is ready to crush down a rebellion as soon as it shows its head. Lincoln may send arms here to Union mon, but we will do as we have already done, appropriate them to our own use. He may start an army here, as he has promised to do, but it will never get further than Cumberland Gap. We are prepared to meet any force
Lincoln's Message. --The Baltimore Exchange quotes some paragraphs from Lincoln's Message, and comments thereon as follows: Of such, and such like stuff as we have quoted and stated, the reader will find the Message full. Of anything like a truthful statement of the case, as we know it to exist, he will find not one word. Of the deep and manly sensibility which belongs to so terrible a moment; of the sense of awful responsibility involved in shedding so much blood of brethren, andLincoln's Message, and comments thereon as follows: Of such, and such like stuff as we have quoted and stated, the reader will find the Message full. Of anything like a truthful statement of the case, as we know it to exist, he will find not one word. Of the deep and manly sensibility which belongs to so terrible a moment; of the sense of awful responsibility involved in shedding so much blood of brethren, and dedicating so much fair and teeming earth to fire and sword and desolation, he will see not a single trace. There is neither heart nor soul in the paper from beginning to end, and when it concludes with an expression of "trust in God." we involuntarily look to Heaven for the vengeance which fell on Ananias.
t was a magnificent sight, such as I never expected to see. "Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty!" On Wednesday night the tail was vasily diminished in length, and on Thursday night the celestial visitor had vanished from view. Will Lieut. Maury, or some of your savants, inform us what comet this was? Was it, as many suppose, the comet of Charles V.? T. A Charlottesville correspondent takes a political view of the comet, and deems its visit at this time portentous. Thus the readers of the Dispatch are informed that-- In the reign of Manfrichi, of Italy, the appearance of a comet was regarded as a certain sign of the death of the King, and a change of Empire. The prediction was verified; Manfrichi was assassinated, and the crown passed to Charles D'Anjou. Now, I do not wish death to any one; still I must confess that it would be truly gratifying to see Jefferson Davis wielding the sceptre of power at Washington, instead of Abraham Lincoln. M.
