FAM.u:s LEAVING THE CTY.-Since the
war excitencit. which sprung up on Friday,
hundreds of families have moved out of the
city, so fearful were they that each morning
would be ushered i, by the loud booming of
cannon and the clang of arms. We heard of
several families who had prepared to move to
Pennsylvania on Saturday, having everything
packed up the evening belord,.but were sorely
disappointed on the following morning by
learning the news that the bridges had been
cut away on the line of the Northern Central
railwav, and they were consequently coin
pelled to move back to their old homes. A
great many persons appear to think that there
is no just cause for alarm, while others are of
a diff. rent opinion. A few days more, and
the troubled anxiety which now fills the
minds of our citizens will be settled in some

It, is believed that the cost of the Govern

cunit, and so does that of the Pennsylvania.

The New York Day Book, in speakinlg of
the mob in that city that caime in front of~ its
office and demanded the hanging out of the
United States flag, says:
"Ast regards the glorious stars and stripes,
we have perilled our life tnder them, when
the miserable poltroons now bypocritically
pretending to uphold that sacred banner were
calling upon the mongrcals of Mexico to train
ple it in the dust, and to receive those who
bore it with " bloody hands and to wvelcome
thenm to hospitable graves." For the rest, we
would advise those no0w seeking to pervert the
the instinctive patriotism of the people to the
base uses of abolitionism, to beware, for if the
mob spirit is thus to thrust aside reason and
free discussioni, the tiime will assuredly comec
when they will grievously repent it."

- wh it arrives at the conclusion, that it is " fhe
_ )li of fool-hardinen for the South to reature
ua contest" with the North. Its statement of
Elyise can le falsified with its own data.
t the white population of the South, as the
5- NYork World does, at 8,000,000, and that of
h tWTorth at 19,000,000. Divide each number by
6 2get the male proportion, and we have 4,000,
m Oagainst 9,500,000. Divide agnin by 2 to up
is piiimate the material of lighting age. say from
15 55-it is now 2,0011,000 to 4,750,000. Of our
i 2,),000, we will perhaps need 500,000 for agri
s cilral and police purposes ;-reducing our avail
at strength for offensive warfare to 1,5,11100.
" Toack these numbers, we have the 5011,000
wi's (of working or fighting age) at home, and
4,'000 blacks, producing cotton and corn, anl
pring forward such manufactures as our ne
eties may require. Now for the North : Of
tho 4,750,001) surely 3,000,100 will be neceded to
prheo and manufacture correspondingly to the
wis of their country, and to keep the North on
anhing like a respectable footing with us before
maind. This leaves 1,750,000 against our
1,5,000 ; And we submit it to the fairness of
tru to decide whether or not this approximates
t coictness. We think it does sufficiently to in
a dice the reladtire strength of the parties. Our
figes may be too large as to fighting material;
> y if reduced on one side, they must he reduced
- e ally on the other.
5 ;ut suppose it stood 1,500,000, to 2,500,000
Idt be remembered that our men are nearly all
iD-ed to toil and danger, nearly all to the manor
be, and, we may say. all imbued with the intel
lijnce to understand their rights and the courage
tmaintain them. The rorld can set up no
c:. elaim for its Northern troops as a whole. No
do)t many, very many of them, are gbod men
an' will make good soldiers ; but many, very
maV of them are also worthless for the purposes
oisuccessful warfare against the freemen of the
SOth. The statistics of immigration for the last
fe- years are pointed to in proof of this asser
tie. The character of the rabble in Northern
cibs is another index. The tens and hundreds of
thasands whose occupations have scarcely per
moed them to know the uses of fire arms, may
als be considered in estimating the real war
strsgth of the Northern States. But more than
allwe of the South are standing in defence of
outhomes and altars, our wives and children,
whme they of the North, disguise it as they will,
areighting for a military despotism that madly
seeb the rise of its power upon the downfall of
thizSouth. In such a strife, two Southerners will
be Torth three Northerners all the way through,
eve allowing other things to be equal. But they
are ist equal ;-we have the advantage of a pop
ulatiin to whom the art of war is suited in every
poia( of view. And perhaps the history of the
nei twelve months may develope this truth so
forcibly as to cause the World and its kindred
craftto revert with shame and mortification to
their present pretentious boasting.
Second Regiment Cavalry.
Tur. Edgefield Companies of this Regiment
were out in full numbers at this place on Saturday
last. The day was rendered peculiarly stirring
by their presence. Many citizens, and among
them a large number of ladies, attended the pa
rade and review. The performances were inter
esting and exciting. It was as gallant and heart
cheering a sight as we have witnessed hero in
many days. Officers and men were in fine condi
tion, bolh personally and in respect to their horses
and equipments. We all felt, as we looked along
their martial ranks, that the country wias safe in
the keeping of such men. If we were usked to
select a band of heroes in South Carolina to exe
ute any high behest of duty, or of beauty, we
shuld go to find them in the dashing Second
Re giment of Cavalry.
At the close of the exercises on Saturday. Col.
Gar and Alajor ToatPt'xuS addressed the troops
in speeches of lofty sentiment and patriotisma.

x1 ressedl the complete readiness of their com
mands to march to any post that might be assigned
them. The Colonel and others, impatient of the
delamy in calling Cavalry to the service, lput for
ward a proposition to form an infantry company
from the rianks of thme Regiment. It is progress
ing, we believe. But the body of the Sainndron
seem to prefer the line of military duty which has
almost become second nature with them. They
however await, as it were, in their very saddles,
ready to lint spurs whenever the sunaimlns may
reach themm. In the mean time, it is inapiring to
know that we have so much of iais k ind of nma

lie says that the declaratiou of war levied
gainst this Cuifederacy, by Abraham Lint-in,
has rendered it necessary to convene Cungress in
order to devise such mcasures as are necessary for
the defence of the country.
The President then reviews at length the rela
tions heretoefure existing between the States, anl
the events which have resulted in the present sec
Referring to the result of the nission of the
CoinuthijoAners to Washington, lie says that the
;rooked paths of diplomacy ian seracely furnish
an example so wanting in courtesy, candor and
directness, as was lhe course of the United States
Government towards our Commissioners.
The President incilentally refers to the prudent
caution ob.erved by the fleet off Charleston har
bor during the bombardment of Fort Sumter; and
pays a high compliment to the Carolinians for
their forbearance before, their heroism during,
and their magnanimity after the bombardment.
Ite says that Cotamissioners have been sent to
England, France, Russia anl Belgium, to ask of
those Governments our recognition ns a member
of the fiamily of nations, and to itake treaties of
amity and commerce with them.
lie recommends the appointment of other di.
iloratie agents, and says that the Confederacy,
through Vice President Stephens, had concluded
a Convettion with Virgiin, by which Virginia
has united her power and fortunes with ours ; and
hoe hus, also, satisfactory assurances that other
Southern States will soon unite their fortunes with
-1le says that most of the Executive Departments
are in successful operation.
The Postwaster.Gener:d will soon be ready to
assume the direction of postal affairs.
In conclusion, lie congratulates the Confederacy
fn the patriotic devotion exhibited by the people,
and says that men of high official and social poui
tion, and of wealth, are serving in the ranks as
volunteers; the railway companies have exhibited
commendable liberality in their rates of transper
tation for troops and supplies ; and profier liberal
terms for transportation of the mails. They, a!so,
receive compensation in the bonds of the Cunfed
-.racy. Ile says that a people thus united and
resalved, cannot fail of final success. le contin
ins: We feel that our cause is just and holy ;
and protest, solemnly, in the face of mankind,
r hat we desire peace at any sacrifice save that of
honor and independence.
We seek no connuest, no aggrandisement, no
cancessions from the Free States. All we ask is
t be let alone-that no one shall attempt our sub.
jugntiou by arms. This we inust and will resist
to the direst extremity. The moment this pre.
Itntion is abandoned, the sword will drop from
our graep, and we shall be ready to enter into
treaties of anity and commerce mutually bene.
i c i ial.
So long as this pretention is maintained with
a firin reliance on that Divine Power which cor
ere with its protection the just cause, we will con
tinue to struggle for our inherent right to freedom
independence, and self government.

To the " Brooks' Greys."
They're gone !-the very noblest hand
Of youthful volunteers;
They're gone, and left behind sad hearts
And eyes brimful of tears.
To part from those so fonlly loved,
Tears unrestrained will fall ;
But though our hearts o'erflow with yrief,
We yield to Duty's call.
We yield a brother's noble form,
We yield a gallant corps
Of cherished friends, with spirits brave
As ever faced a foe.
With hearts as true as ever throbbed,
As fearless too, and bold ;
Methinks the Northern heart shall fail
" When Brooks' name is told."
These are our jewels-these our hope,
Our country's boast and pride;
She called them-and we give them up
To meet the Battle's tide.
Then Heaven be kind, be merciful,
And bring to us again
The loved and- loving.;-This our cry,
0 ! shall it be in vain !
