A Northern Letter.
- Appended will he foand*an extract of a let?
ter from an intelligent gentleman of New York
to a friend in the Mouth, which will be perused
with interest. The writer very properly con?
cludes that ''envy on the part of the Northern
people induces thousands of them to yaound
on" their legions to Southern ?destruction, and
that we' have nothing to hone, save from our
strong arras and-brave hearts, in this unequal
contest. That Providence will eventdaliy. in?
terpose Iiis merciful arm, and save 9s from the
horrid fatcwhieh our cuemies are endeavoring
to fasten upon us, We have not a shadow of a
doubt. Let every man buckle on his armor,'
and do his whole duty now, and success will
reward oar efforts: 5
Nsw YORK, February 28,1865.-Until within 1
?he pasl few months, 1 have had strong hopes of
the ultimate success of the South; but am sorry
to say, a succession of .dreadfifi disasters of late
induced me to fear you had not suf?eient num?
bers auuV strength to sustain the most wonderful
efforts ever mode by any other country or
'Opie; and still, notwithstanding this condition
of affairs, I still hope something will occur
which will turn the tide,.and ultimately insure
your success. *
'It-is fearful to think of the sacrifices, misfor?
tunes and rubi to. which the South have been
subjected, and which must contin?e while this
fearful aud unholy strife goes on. To my mind,
it is perfect madness for any party, in this
country or Europe, to iraagibe 'for a moment
that the South could again, by any possibility,
unite with the'North, while tflere remains any
rememberauce ortho sad and heart-rending
events which they have witnessed and endured
for four years past, and while martyrs, like
Capt Baall and others, can be cited. .Although
see daily accounts of Union feeling, and
! fraternising with the North, in cities that /have
lately beeu taken, and other sections of the
South, I have never conceived it possible that
such a principle obtained beyond foreigner*,
and those of Northern birth, who reside there;
and have no doubt immens, numbers at life
North are of like opinion; but'still hound on
through envy the cruel struggle, which eau
have no other tendency than to obliterate for
ever ?rib ideas of their uniting again with the J
This dtfruggle has so clearly developed the
I fact of tho superiority of the Southern peoplo,
'that large numbers Itere would rejoico at their
destruction. Yet may we not hope some kind |
interposition ot. Providence may ev iiitaaily
compel the. North to desist, aud grant honora
i ble terma to the South?
There is hardly a day of ray "lifo, aines tbis]
