The Kiohtiiond Whig, in an article headed

"Do what the farmers may, we shall be forced
to b with far less animal loud than we have

Th- Georgia Constitutionalist, another able
j .nrn.il, is urging the same views on the indus
trious manufacturing State of, Georgia. It

less character are everywhere giving heed to
I i the things which make for the welfare of
the army and the country. Tho rich aro look
ing fitter their servants and directing their
work the. making of cotton and woolen cloth.
It ii become the pride of the country matron,
and even of the young ladies too. In almost
every country place, and in the small towns
and villages, we hear on every sido the homely
but not unpleasant whir of the spinning wheel,
and the click and thud of the hand loom. The
tVi.irpt and daintiest of the land are learning
the mysteries of dyes and color-sotting, and of
warp and woft. ScarloU and purplo are an
n very-day 'homo. It is a novel fashion,
and v, hrt is more, a good fashion. We hope
to .;ce more Mill, follow it. Itshouldbe a glory
; a young lady in these times, not only to
wear n homespun dress, but to bo able to spin
and weave it. All honor we say to tho music
of the spinning wheel, aad especially to thosj
who learn that whilo not forgetting their piano.
They are lit to be the wives of heroes.
V.'e have set forth the advice of these expe-r'.-

p. u,)l i to 'he production of provisions, and the
(.raitice of industry, economy and self.denial.
Ucad ts, iii yoa recollect the letter of old Ben.
Franklin from London to the Secretary of
Congress, when the British Parliament passed
; tb? tax hill : "Wo mast.no'w light the lamps
oi industry nnd economy."
Vv''!l rot the practice of industry, economy
c-.d .! denial put the rising generation on the
road to sticcesi in life, nnd if these ItabiU are
valuable in peace, who should growl, and
whino, and disturb the skies with his unhal
lowed clamors because he cannot get brandy,
tobacco, cotfde at.d flub clothes, mero luxuries
and superfluities, no way necessary for com
fortable subsistence, when every thing dear in
life is at ftake ? I1j of good cheer, and sustain

The counties of Franklin, Lircoln, Warren,
and others that might be rne.Tioned. have fur
nished t s many bfave soldiers and cflicient
officers a3 probttbly any counties in th.-Confederacy,
in proportion t population, at. l fur
nished fewer despicable tori-s than most of
them. They Lave aided to confer glory on the
State of which they are a constituent part.
Their soldiers have borne forward their coun
try's standard triumphantly on many a bh'oAy
(IjM. Let tho truth be recorded.
The ablest men in Europe, iiiditrerent spec-,
tators of the Moody strut-le, de.'lare tlie crisis

und Providence will soon viiiehafe t- us the '

The Richmo-id Whig stfit.' tho.! i: hu r-lia-ble
advices from Kentucky that a great revo
lution in opinion has taken place in that State;
that the secession of Indiana and Illinois are
discussed in the presence of Yankee officials;
that those w ho adhere to the wreck of the
Union have ceased their vigilance in arresting
Southerners, though it would not he well for a
Southern soldier to expose himself too much ;
that the home guard a--oi iitions are geni-ral: y
defunct, except in some of the eastern moun
tain districts, where they are kq t aiiveto cover
up robbery and general rascality. 1 n the cen
tral part of the .State Southern parties are
given, Southern war songs Ming, and Southern
emblems in dress displayed by the ladies with
impunity. Some of Lincoln's marshalls are
in jail for law les.-nets on Southern men, and
suits for damages are brought by Southern men
against Union plunderers. That the Lincoin
despotism isg .ingdown in Kentucky rapidly
for the la-t yar. and the i-h-i: of tin- South
