subject of gratulation that tbe spirit oi the vol
unteer, and the patriotism of the people, hive
enabled us, nnder Providence, to grapple sue
ceesfully with thee difficulties;
A suoceseion of glorious victories, at Bethel,
Bull Run, Manassas, Springfield, Lexington,
Letsburg, and Belmont, has checked the wick
ed invasion which greed of gain and the unhal
lowed luet of power brought upon our soil, and
has proved that numbers cease to avail when

SEVEN MONTHS OF WAR.
After more than seven months of war, the
enemy have not only failed to extend their oc
cupancy Of OUr BOil. but new Statea nrl
ries have been added to our Confederacy. While,
Instead of their threatening march of uncheck
ed conquest, iney nave been driven at more than
one point to assume the defensive; and upon a
wuipar.ouu vetweeu tne two belligerent) it
to men, military means and financial conditiob,
tbe Confederate Statea are relatively muob

aimost unparalleled diUlcnltles with a spirit snd
suocees alike worthy of themselves and of the
great cause in which they are struggling.
THE CASE OF KENTUCKY.
time Kentucky, too, has become
tne meater oi aotive hostilities. The Federal
forces have not only refused to acknowledge ber
right to be neutral, and have insisted upon mak
ing her a party to the war, but have invaded
her for tbe purpose of attacking the Confederate
States. Outrages of the most dejpotio obarao
ter nave Deen perpetrated upon her people.
8omo of her most eminent oitizens have been
seized and borreawayto largui.h in foreign
prisons, without knowing who were their o
cusers, or the specific cbarges made against
them, while others have been forced to aban
don their homes, their families, and property,
and seek a refuge in distant lands.
Finding that the Confederate States were
about ta be invaded through Kentucky, and
that ber people, after being drawn into a mis
taken security, were unarmed and in danger of
being subjugated by tho Federal foroes, our
armies were marohed Into that 8tate to repel the
enemy and prevent their occupation of certain
strtttfgio points, which would have given tbcm
great advantage in the contest Btep which
was not only justified by tbe necessity of gclf
defense on tbe part of tbe Confederate States,

of tbat State; but, on the contrary, it wag de
clared by our Generals that they would with
draw their troops if the Federal Government
would do likewise. Froolamation was also
made of onr desire to respeot the neutrality oi
Kentucky, and the Intention to abide by the
wishes of her people as toon as thov were free
to express their opinions. These declarations

CHARACTER OF NORTHERN WARFARE.
The nature of tho hostilities which thev have
waeea acmnst us must be characterized as bar-
barorjB whenever it is understood. They have
bontbiidod undefended villages, without giving
notice to women and children to enable tbem to
escape, and in ono instance selected tbe night
aa the pctiod when the? mlebt eurorise them
moat effectually whiltt aleep aud unconscious
of danger. Arson and rapine, the destruction of
private houses and property, and injuries of tbe
most wanton charito-.er, even upon non-combatants,
have marked their forays along their bord
ers and upon our territory, we ouebl to nave
been admonished by these thine tbattbev were
disposed to make war upon us in the moat cruel
ana rcieutiees GLirit, yet we were not prepared
to see tbem fit out a large naval expedition with
the confessed purpose uot only to pillage, but to
incite a servile war in our midst.
If they convert their soldiers into incendiaries
and robbers, and involve us in a species of war
which claims non-combatants, women and child
ren, as its vtotims, they must expect to be treat
ed as outwbtj and enemies of maukind.
There are certain riithts of hunAuitv which
ere entitled to repeo' even in war. and he who
refuses to regard them, forfeits his claim, if
captured, to dj considered a prisoner of war,
and must expect to be dealt with as an effsnder
against all law human and divine.
THE CAPTURE OF SLIDELL AND MASON.
But not content with violating our rights un
der the law of nations at home, they have ex
tended their injuries to us within other juris
dictions. The distinguished gentlemen whom,
witn your approval at tbe last session, I com
missioned to represent the Confederacy at ccr
tain foreign courts, have been recently seized
by the Captain of a United States ship-of-war,
while on board a Britleh mail steamer, oo
their way from the neutral Spanish port of Ha
vana to England. Tbe United States have thus
claimed a general jurisdiction over the high
seas, and entering a British ship, sailing nnder
its country's flag, violating the rights of embas
sy, for the most part held eacred even amone
barbarians, by seizing onr ministers whilst nnder
tbe protection and witbin tbe domains of a nen-
tral nation. These gentlemen were as much
nnder the jurisdiction of the British Government
upon th .t ship, and beneath it flag, as if they
had been on its soil: and a claim on the part of
the United States to seize them in the streets of
London would have been as well founded as to
apprehend them where tbey were taken. Had
they been malefactors and citizens even of the
United States, tbey could not have been ar

unlcs, under ' the expreES provisions of a treaty
and according to tbe lorms therein provided for
the extradition of criminals. But rights tbe
