(Guerilla OrsanizAtlon In Irglnla.
The Virginia rebels nrc organizing in
depcnflent companies of Kucrillas, under
th? name of 'Tarlisan l!angers." Here
is an extract from one of their adver
tisements in the Iiichmond papers:
The wolf is hunted for his ecalp, and
our Government has not the means to pay
for its army's ammunitions of war, which
wo may capture from the enemy, thus
placing the invaders of our country, the
oppressors of our liberty, ipon the footing
of the s'tvoge.
I invoke all enterprising men to join
me who are not engaged in the military
service, and especially thoso wh&so
homes are in the possession of the ene
my. I invoke them to join me whether
animated by a simple love of country, or
a haired of UiepuhUc enemy ; whether they
have wrong to redrew, a vengeance to seA; or
a home to protect.
John Scott, of Fauquier Co.,
Captain, C. S. A.
Such is the atrocious and brutal lan
guajjp of the F. F. V. Guerillas. Let our
only reply be a terrible retaliation.
A PIeinj;e from John Letcher.
John Letcher sent a long mcssago to
tho Virginia Legislature on the Cth, in
which he is particularly severe on the
conscription law. lie says the act is
unconstitutional and violative of State
rights-, but forbears to debale the subject
further, owing to the peculiar condition
of affairs. He says :
"Wo cannot prosecute this war and
support our own and the army of the
enemy within the limits of tho Southern
Confederacy. We have the means in
abundance lor the support 01 our own
army, no matter to what extent it may
bo increased. Wc must invade the en
emy's country, and force him to subsist
his army at home by compelling its
withdrawal from our section. Our ad
vent into Southern Illinois, Indiana and
Ohio, w ill introduce us to a people whoso
sympathies are with us, and who will
extend to us aid and comfort. New Or
leans has fallen. This is one of our
principal points fur supplies, and, this in
the hands of the enemy, a change in our
policy is rendered necessary, and it
should be made without delay. A mo
ment lost now can never bo regained.
1 by past is gone wisely" improve tho
present, and the future will be safe."
Alluding to the loss of slave property,
the Governor speaks as follows :
'The loss to 1 ho citizens of Virginia
in the item of slave property alone far
exceeds the loss from the destruction of
cotton or any other species of property
during the war."
He estimates this lojs at the enormous
sum of fl.yKW.OOO! ! That is gettiug
one's rights, isn't it ?
The citizens of Williamsburg nic in
tense and open in their proclamation of
secessionist!!. The place is a famous
nest of decayed descendants of the "First
Families," whose main patrimony is
pride, and whose leading passion is ha
tred of any man among them who rise b
his own merit and industry. This they
consider a vulgar, Yankee habit, and they
make war upon it with all the rancor of
a baseless aristocracy and sentiment
that grows sour and malignant as it
grows old and incapable of making its
hatreds effective. This is tho seat of
William and Mary College, where l'rof.
Ueverlcy Tucker instilled State-Uights-
ism into the minds of the Southern
youth, and w here, ten years ao, he
wrote the J ' . .ea ter, as a manual
and programme for the treasonable con
spiracy which was even then maturing
in tho Southern mind. The whole tone
of the place is false, un-American and
Anti-llepuhlican, and it is not at all Mir
jHising that ilshonlii have been a Lot
bed if secession.

North Carolina states that Governor
Cl-itk has refused to furnish any more
troops to Je!l'. la if, ami has recalled all

AL'CCI'NTS OF REBEL B.UBARlTirS.
The public reception of -Her- W. (i.
B-ownlow, at the Academy of Music,
was an ovation. The house was packcfl
with an enthusiastic audience, who gave
the heroic Tennessccan their undivided
attention. .William M. ..Lvarff presided.
After a brief review of the origin and
progress of the rebellion, Mr. Brownlow
proceeded to describe its effects upon
Tennessee. and gave a detailed and mgniy
interesting account of his personal ex
periences, concluding with an eRrnest ap
peal in behalf of the suffering loyalists
of Tennessee. We give the leading points
of his speech:

Iu the county of Knox, where I reside, and
only n'ven miles west of the town of Knox
ville, they caught up Union men, tied them
upon logs, elevated the log upou block six
cr ten inches from the ground, put the mm
upon tbelr breasts, tieiug their bands and
feet under the log, stripped their backs en
tirely bare, and then, with switches, cut
their bacm literally to pieces, the blood run
ning down at every stroke. They came into
court when it was in sessiou, and when the
case was stated, t'm judge replied : " I'hcso
are revolutionary limes, und there is no rem
edy for anything of tLe kind." Hence, you
see, our remedy Is in our own hands; und,
with the help of guns ami swords and sabres
we intend, God willing, to slay them, when
we got back there wherever we find them.
