The name of the Southern Confederacy.

--The Charleston Courier has an article on the name to be given to the Southern League, or Confederacy. Among those suggested our contemporary mentions the following; ‘" Apalachian League,"’ ‘"Apalachia,"’ ‘"Alleghania,"’ ‘"Columbia,"’ ‘"Chicora,"’ ‘"Fredonia,"’ ‘"Washington League,"’ ‘"Washington States,"’ ‘"Atlanta, "’ ‘"Augusta,"’ ‘"Carolana,"’ ‘"Florida,"’ ‘"Georgia,"’ ‘"Alabama,"’ ‘"Louisiana,"’ ‘"Carolina,"’ ‘"Georgia League,"’ ‘"Georgia Confederacy, "’ &c. That is certainly a pretty good list to choose from; but then a rose by any name will smell as sweet. Therefore any short name will be as satisfactory.
