Bull Run, Va. (Virginia, United States) (search for this): article 3
supporting them over the abyss of infamy, but are left by a righteous doom to follow the prompting of their own hearts. It is vain for the Times to attempt to draw off attention from the atrocious deeds of Lincoln's minions by reprinting the refuted lies which it has been so active in inventing and propagating. Its allusions to head shavings and half-hangings in the Southern States have ceased to have any effect. They answered the purpose of filling the Yankee ranks six months ago; but Bull Run is more powerful than Raymond lies. Volunteers cannot be brought to the enlisting point by all the fabrications he can either make on the spot, or all he can revive from the limbo of long-forgotten lies. In the meanwhile, the tenderness and consideration with which the Yankee prisoners — coming here to burn, plunder and ravish — have been treated, gives the lie to all that the devilish malice of a thousand "little villainies" can invent.--When he tells us that "we" (the Yankees) "are at

our part--if war it can be called — as a father might be supposed to war with rebellious and crazy children — with the sole view of not hurting them." And this is told us in the face of the imprisonment of our own privateers, and the marching of them, handcuffed and chained, from loathsome dungeons in the Tombs, to the Federal Court, there to be tried for their lives, and marching them back again, amidst the hootings, howlings, hissings, and threats of furious mobs — of the events of Maryland, the occupation of Baltimore, the imprisonment of its citizens without trial in Fort McHenry, the abolition of the habeas corpus, the conversion of all the South into a military district with no law but the law military, the search of houses, the plunder of private property, the destruction of the Constitution, and the establishment of a dictatorship upon its ruins. If the whole South has been outlawed, if its entire property has been confiscated by act of the Yankee Congress, if its citiz<

time since, it says: "Now and then a flash of hate and revenge breaks out in the South that gleams like fire from the infernal pit. We wonder, while we observe it, if the days of the devil's chaining are not ended, and he permitted to roam the world again, full licensed for a season." If the "quadrilateral" gentleman who does the fine writing for the Times had only forgotten his personal safety long enough to pay a visit to the shore while he was instructing Attorney Butler at Old Point in the art of retreating, he might have witnessed excesses which would have added not a little to his perplexity, or else removed it altogether. He might have seen a whole country, but a few months since smiling in peace and prosperity, converted into a howling wilderness, if not by the Prince of Darkness himself, at least by his most potent agents on this earth — the vagabond Yankee soldiers of Butler, who have been sent here to burn and pillage. If he had staid long enough in his fligh

arms in favor of the Yankee Government, are at this moment, by a law of the same Congress, threatened with death, we are to regard it all as preempted by the same feeling that a father may be supposed to entertain for an erring child. What, after all, is the proposition of the "Devoted Band," which so terribly alarms the fleet-footed strategist of the Times? It pro- poses to do what at all times it has been considered perfectly legitimate for a belligerent to do. It proposes to do what Scipio Africanus did, and by doing which he effected the deliverance of Rome. It proposes to carry the war into the enemy's own country. And why not? If it is legitimate for a Yankee force to capture and burn Richmond, is it not legitimate for a Southern army to capture and burn Philadelphia or New York, or both of them? Nor is the feat so impossible as the Times affects to believe it. Let it not lay the flattering unction to its soul. The men can be found to undertake it and to do it, too!

It is vain for Raymond, or any other professor of the art of lying, to deny facts which have already become the property of history. The infernal deeds which have been perpetrated by the Yankee army can neither be concealed nor extenuated. There they stand, a warnintive in inventing and propagating.
