California --Capt. Patrick, of South Carolina, Major Means, and Mr. J. M. Steward, of Virginia, arrived in New Orleans on the 8th inst., from California. The Delta says: They informed us that the most intense feeling of sympathy for the Confederacy, and of opposition to the Northern despotism, exists among the Southerners residing in California. This feeling has been intensified by the persecution to which they are subjected. Many have been arrested, and all are closely watched. Were it not for the vigilant system of espionage which is maintained by the authorities, there would be a general exodus of Southerners from the country. It is gratifying to know that the spirit of opposition to the North and of sympathy for the South is general among the Southerners. There are no divisions — all, whether Marylanders, Virginians, Kentuckians Missourians, or citizens of the Cotton States, are united in sentiment. Nothing could keep any of them to California but the extreme di
Something too good to be told. --The Atlanta (Ga.) Confederacy, of the 11th instant, has the following mysterious paragraph: We are in possession of some important information, which we will not divulge for a day or two. It gives us hope for the future.--We feel more encouraged at it than anything that has happened lately.
The Yankees at port Royal. The Athens (Ga.) Banner Says: A gentleman in the Confederate service at Yorktown, Va., has sent to his brother in this place a copy of the New York Tribune, of the 19th ult., from which we learn much of the movements and intentions of the United States Government in reference to the property of Southern men which may fall into their hands. It will be remembered that about the time Port Royal was captured, the Yankee General, Sherman, issued a proclamation to the people of South Carolina, telling them that he came among them as a friend and protector, and not as an enemy that he had, in former years, partaken of their hospitality, and that their private property and rights would be religiously respected, &c., just as Buell has done at Nashville. The Tribune contains lengthy official report to the United States Secretary of the Treasury, S. P. Chase, from a man named Edward L. Pierce, who was appointed by the Yankee Secretary to go to Port Royal
Gen. Price's retreat from Springfield. The following is the substance of General Sterling Price's official report of his retreat from Springfield, (dated February 25,) addressed to Gov. Jackson, of Missouri. It furnishes a sufficient answer to the Federal accounts, and affords additional evidence of the mendacity of the Federal Generals: A bout the latter part of December, I left my camp on Sac river, St. Clair county, fell back, and took up my quarters at Springfield for the purpose of being within reach of supplies, protecting that portion of the State from home guard depredations and Federal invasion, as well as to secure a most valuable point for military movement At Springfield, I received from Grand Glaze considerable supplies of clothing, camp and garrison equipage, and having built huts, our soldiers were as comfortable as circumstances would permit. I am pleased to say few complaints were either made or heard, Missouri having been admitted as an equal member of th
House of Representatives. Wednesday, March 19. House met at 18 o'clock, and was opened with prayer by Rev. Dr. Doggett. The Journal of yesterday was read and approved. Hon. John V. Wright appeared and took the oath of office. A message was received from the Senate informing the House that the Senate had disagreed to the 1st, 2d, and 3d amendments of the House to the Senate bill regulating the pay of members of Congress, and that the Senate concurred in the 4th and 5th amendments of the House. Mr. Bonham moved for a suspension of the rule for the call of the States, with a view to take up the bill as it came from the Senate; and also moved that the House recede from its amendment, striking out $3,000 in the Senate bill, and inserting $2,500 in lieu thereof. He thought it would be graceful in the House at once to concur with the Senate. He was sure if this Congress adopted vigorous measures for the prosecution of the war, the people would not complain that the
