y next, make an attempt on Harper's Ferry, Alexandria, Fredericksburg, Urbana, and Tappahannock on the Rappahannock, and at Norfolk, and on the York river, merely to divert voters from the polls. I hope, however, that every voter in the State may determine to go to the polls and vote, if he never gets back home alive. Let him go with his ticket in one hand and the sword in the other, and vote your noble old State out of a Union with men whom you can never live except in degradation. Virginians, next Thursday is to you the most momentous day that has ever dawned upon you. It is a day for weal or woe to you and your posterity. I feel as confident as I ever did of anything, that an overwhelming majority in favor of secession will not only effectually crush out that little detestable nest of Tories in the Pan-Handle, but will be the most energetic means of cooling down Lincoln and his tools of anything that can be done whatever.--Your Convention has wisely provided that the soldier

f the great wrongs that have been perpetrated against us, both as a Government and as private Christians, I find myself unable to restrain myself; but I have still, and ever have had, abiding faith in our cause, our people, and God's justice. Virginius. Charleston, May 17, 1861. I have it on better authority than you generally get, that old "Tureen" (Scott,) and Lincoln will, on Tuesday or Wednesday next, make an attempt on Harper's Ferry, Alexandria, Fredericksburg, Urbana, and Tolls — let everything else be laid aside that one day.

Take care of old "Tureen," if you ever get hold of him; don't hurt him, I beg of you, he is my dear old friend. Virginius.

inister at the altar the elements representing the broken body and shed blood of the immaculate Son of God. Appeals have been made by the press of the North to its soldiery for the invasion of the South, and to lay waste the homes of our people; to burn and destroy our towns and cities; to murder and devastate; to rob, and "take and possess;" and all this to be accomplished by the drippings, the skimmings, and the strainings of the brothels and purlieus of New York, with such soldiers as Billy Wilson's Zouaves, the thieves, pickpockets and burglars of the Sodom of the United States. And these are the material, and this the errand, that these holy men of God, these saints of the latter-day glory, these high priests of the quill and white cravat, set on us, and pat upon the back and bid "God speed" in the glorious work of murder, robbery, arson and rape, among whom is that saintly fiend, Henry Ward Beecher, of the Puritanic pandemonium of Brooklyn, and that other God-loving saint who p
