The Levy In Masse.
We had not supposed it was seriously con
templated in any quarter to call out into active
service the whole male population of tbe State.
The proposition of Governor Letcher, to have
all over ilxteen and under tlxty-flre. In cities,
drilled for the defence of their respective local
ities, is a different affair. That may be practl.
cable, and, under circumstances, might be de
sirable. But we have very great doubts
whether such a mass would effect moro good
than mischief. But In respect to tbe rural dis
tricts, to call, out the whole male population
over sixteen and under sixty Are, or even be
tween eighteen and forty-live, would be a mis
chievous and Inexcusable folly. In the first
place, we have not arms to put In their hands.
That objeotlo J alone Is tufllolenL In the second
place, it would ruin the Industrial pursuits of
the Stato and leave us without the means of
prosecuting tne war oeyond the present season.
We hear that the rage for volunteering Is
greater than It has been since the beginning of
the war. There will be no want of men, with
out any extraordinary legislation, If they can
only get arms and leaders to conduot them
against the enemy. If there should be any
deficiency, It could be easily supplied by a
draft on the superabundance of " able bodied"
young men la the commissary and quartermas

bean great among all classes to lot k on tho

asters as those of Roanoke Island and the Ten

and appalling evidences of Inefficiency that all
confidence must be lost, without some assuranco
or an altered and more vigorous policy.
Great and criminal as may have been official
remissness during the last eight months, while
the enemy were actively preparing to iuvada
us, our cause is not desperate, If we can have
councils and energetlo action. With a fren

nothing Is wanting but competent leaders
men ot wise heads and big hearts, worthy of
this great movement to cor duct them to victory.
The permanent Congress of the Confederacy
Isnow In session. It Is an important branch
ct the Government, privileged and required
by Its position to take an active part In the con .
duct of affairs. It is Its high prerogative to
see that other departments perform their func
tions, and ir they fall, to take ore that tho
Republio receives no dettiment. But, with
wise and harmonious councils, our past reverses
may prove sources of future triumph.
