that Gen. Lee'a trip into Maryland, it it , e largely
shall be productive of 110 further results,
is one of the most successful aud brilliant
movements of this war. Jackson's dash
upon Harper's Ferry, cost the enemy in
killed, wounded and prisoners, not less
than twelve thousand men, and iu arms
and munitions of war not less than seve

These repeated disasters to the federal

Tl.a Tfi.hiilond Kiinuirer. speakinx of
tho common notion that everybody has a
right to publish what ho please, ut the
publisher's evpenso and not his own, says,
The press is only free to its editors, and
to those whom ita "editors believe to have
good ground for ad dressing the public and
something to say which the public has an
interests in heating. We recommend
those who labor under this mistake to
consider the following fact: that news
papers are made for the large class who
read, and not the small class who want to
write. The idea that when a man sub
scribes for a newspaper, he lays its pro
prietor undor seme definable obligation,
or that he has a right to publish his com
munications therein with a single proviso
that they shall be inoffensive, is a popu

",-erh" lady, who was anxiou to ee
thy Rruto w'ithout having any business
herself to t:iko her there. Mrs. , af
ter complimenting Butler highly upon
the condition of the streets and the city
generally, and expressing her devoted al
legiance' to the old flag, staled that sho
called, actuated solely by the promptings
of her heart, to take tho oath of allegi
ance. Butler ullowed her to get that far,
and 110 further "Get out, madam! get

Get out, madam; you want some favor
under that; go." And out she had lo go.
The sccesh lady could'nt keep it, you
may be sure; and it was no lime before
the story was out. Another incident:
While our vessel was lying at the pickets,
the Yankee sentinels picked up a little
boy of about six years, who was playing
near them, and tried to induce him lo
hurrah for Lincoln. "I won't." "Hur
rah, and I'll give you something:" ' "I

I know of, are pretty lair specimens of
the Union feeling there. A deadly ha

The Northern Papers.
Many of our Southern exchanges are
filled with the mendacious accounts of
the Northern press on tho lito battles in
Maryland. They are generally well writ
ten, but, us they are made up mostly of
lies and misrepresentations, we can't ex
actly seo the object of their re-production.
They are calculated to create doubts in
tho mind of the indiscriminate reader,
and furnish a foundation lor tho distil- j
fected to build reports upon prejudicial -j
to the Southern cause. Of course, their
appotiranco in Southern papers, ia intend
ed for no such purpose.

This dispatch was received by Gen
W. Smith, and was read in the House of
Kepresenlntives yesterday morning. The
following is a copy of the dispatch :
Gi:n.-hal: A dispatch has just been re
ceived from Winchester, dated 21st. The
enemy crossed 10,001) men over, the river
at Shepardsto'vn, and wero immediately
tit tucked by Jackson's corps and routed.
Their loss very heavy; ours slight, 'uito
a number of arms taken. Jackson has
rocrossetl into Maryland.
H. B. IVtvinsnN,
Colonel, P. A. V, S. .
During the day nothing later was re
ceived with reference to the engagement,
except that passengers who come by the
fViitrid train stated that it was reported
at Stuanton that our victory was complete.
and tho enemy was terribly slaughtered.
Tho 6ame report also represents that wo
had captured some four or five thousand
of the enemy. The Yankee force en
gaged in this fight crossed the Potoimio
at Boiler's Mill, one mile below She
iirdstown, and tho fight must therefore
have occurred in the immediate vicinity
of that town.
Tho statement that General Jackson
with his corps recrossed into MnrylninJ,
after the battle of Saturday, is hardly
probable,' unless therp was a concerted
pi i.u for a similar muv,f our wholuJuiiiOj.
It may be that Maryland will again b4
invaded at un early day, and that Oonl
Jackson's column is tho advauco guard
of a second invasion. lSut in the ab
sence of fuels, it is idlu to speculate upon
what our future movements will be.

In the Congressional proceedings of
Saturday, it will he seen that Mr. Kenan,
of this State, hits introduced "a bill to
create and abolish certain offices, where
by,the efl'ectivo sticngtli of thejirmy will
bo greatly increased.'' The object of
this measure is, wo learn, to remove mil
itary men and ublo-bodiod young men
otherwise subject to conscription, from
all offices in tii ariiiy,whose. duties may
be us well performed by civilians not li
able to conscription. Tho ctl'cet will bo
to bring in the field a very large body of
young men whose energies aronow'flru
ployed in olficcs which can be as well, if
not better, filled by civilians who, other
wise, would take no pnrt in tho revolu
tion. It is a great economical measure,
and we hope Congress will hesitalo long

Wo want to get out of the Union,' vte
shall feel constrained by our devotion lo
human liberty to say, 'let them go!' And
we do not see how we could take the oth
er side, n ithout coming iu direct conflict
with those rights of men which wo hold
paramount to all political arrangements,
however convenient and advantageous."
Horace's plan failed. "A considerable
section of the Uuion deliberately resolv
ed to go out" they sent agonts to Wash
ington to say: "Wo want to get out of
the Union," but they ware not permitted
to "go in peace."
Shortly after the war began, Greeley
proposed that if the Yankee army should
be benten in a pitched bottle ofauy mag
nitude, it should be accepted by them as
evidence that tho Southern "rebellion"
was no transient and circumscribed dis
turbance, but a general uprising, which
it would bo wrong if not useless to .t
temnt to control by force. Manassas
came up-to the requirement but the war
went on. Some time alter, Horace pro
posed that if the war should last twelve
months, the contest should then be aban
doned by the North, since there was no
instance in history of a revolution that
had maintained itself successfully' for
twelve months being after suppressed.
The twelve months expired, but still the
war went ou. At a later day he excloim
ed, "Woe be to .this land (Yankee land)
if. when Hie month of Mav comes, the
Rebellion still rears a defiant front.
Maybas come and gone, and the( front

Philosopher think the war will end.
The Raleigh "Stato Journal" oontains
the inaugural address pronounced on tho
8th inst., by Gov. Z. B. Vance. It com
pletely meets and denies and refutes all
the injurious rumors that have been cir
culated by some of his embittered polit
ical antagonists, and have been supposed
to give "aid aud comfort to the enemy."
Governor Vance is for the strict and
faithful enforcement of tho conscription
law, and the rigorous and decisive prose
cution of the war. He justly and proud
ly pronounces a lofty eulogy on Hie noble
State whoso helm has beon placed in his
Tne Bond to Glory.
