We have no apology to make on account of
a frequent recurrence to tho necessity of greater
exerticjrj among our planting population in
order to provide subsistence, not only for them
selves, but for the country in general. Wo
have learned, from observation, and tho state
ments .of persons who havo traveled, thattliore
is a general apathy among farmer. which
thnjatuns the most serious consequences. The
plow ,e.f.m& alra-.ist to havo been thrown aside,
and so far as tho .practical benefit we aro to
derive as a nation from such a suicidal falhcy
is concerned, tho inhuman Kusncrfciis might
induM A well destroy nil fanning implement.
Tis true that h lew wo wut of are doing all
they can i r taxing every bit of earth they
ovn in en deavoring to produce subsistence for
mmi and beast, but the number ij too small,
tnLire'.i too small.
But, say some to us, thera seems to bo no
use, for the Yankees will gt it all. Mistaken
patriotism ! Suppose they do, you can be no
wore o!f than if you produce none at ail. If
fito ik-ull be so cruel as to doom your labor
to the vAndsl desires of the diabolical enemv,
yrj arc to bo pitied, and our army must
seriously fee! the consequences. Cut that guch
will be the case we have no Ha, and we have
not tho patience to argue with thi man who U
so ready to believe that tho first ten day of
good weather will bring the Yankee armies in
cur midst. It shows a want of confidence in
tho brave soldiers and skilli'ul officers who are
periling their iivvs in our defense- Why. our
army is not despondent. There ii no soldier
in tho Confederate service, unless ho be a
knave or coward, who doubts that we will
triumph. They are sanguine, and yet there
are men in our midst who would exorcise that
brave spirit ot confidence from their breasts,
and thereby destroy half the incentive to but
tle aye, would thus unwittingly bring defeat
lo our arm;. 'Tin confidence that will pluck
uvc3 from the dagger point f danger, and
ye! somoot the class whoru we are addressing
are doing their best to destroy the universal
confidence which animate., our armies. These
soldiers expect, and they have a right to de
mand, that those who remain at home should
till all the ground that they can, and rai.e all
tke food they can. Are you doing it? Are
you not allowing rank weeds to cumber the
ground in which to day ought to be seeds that
will produce something beneficial? Don't be
g lilty of saying there U no mc. That very
excuse (if excuse it can be called) carries with
it an alarming culpability. There it use
more ihc than ever more use, in that our best
grain producing country is circumscribed by
the occupancy of a large portion of it by the
enemy, lie threatens to starve us, and with
the farmers small and large lien the power
to nullify his boasted diabolism.
On the score of profit our farmers can have
no excuse, for everything that can be raised on
& plantation which enters into daily consump
tion, commands the most unparalleled remu
But there is a truly patriotic consideration
rises tar above the potty calculations of dollars
and cents a consideration compared with
which nothing approximates savo the heroic
devotion to the country which leads tho patriot
forth 'mid trials and sufloring to bare his breast
in defense of freetlora. Our armies mmt be
fed, if we expect them to battlo for our inde
pendence. Tho families ot the soldiers must
be cared for, else discontent will arise, and in
its track will follow demoralization, and then
farewell to the noblest exertions and highest
liopes which ever characterized any people
struggling against despotism and loathsome
equality with a cursed race. Tho condition of
vlairs is well nigh resolved to this : Labor and
independence, apathy and - chains. Put every
hand, liUle and big, to work on your farms,
and invoking tho blessings of Providonce,
you will have a result which (shall not only
fill your pocket with a fair remuneration, but
jmayhap will be the means of securing to your
r.).intry the boon of independence.
An A ncient Spkctjlator The relig
ious Herald says any ono who consults
rarlc v. 27, in the Greek Testament,
wili find that when Herod w heel to
iavu John the Baptist beheaded in
prison he sent A ppcciilsttor to discharge
the ;ruoI fjiictjon. Tho inspired wri
ter used the very words in its Grr-ek
The Army ot Tennessee.
The army of Tennessee, although it Inflicted
a loss on the enemy about equal, according to
Gen. Johnston, to the whole of our army, was
reduced in strength and much enfeebled by the
battle. A largo portion of the army had been
previously withdrawn for the defence of Yicks
burg. After that battlo it was regarded aa
very uncertain whether Gen. Bragg could
maintain his position in Tennessee, and whether
he would not be compelled, if the enemy were
reinforced, to fall back south of the Tennessee
river, and give up the State to be ravaged and
desolated by our barbarous foe. lie, therefore,
promptly created a "Volunteer and Conscript
Bureau for the Army of Tennesseo," and
placod at the hosd of this bureau Brig. Gen:
Pillow, who had just reported for duty on the
battle field of Murfreesboro, and taken part in
that engagement. Gen. Bragg jdaccd under
Gen. Pillow'a orders about eleven hundred
officers, with authority to establish rendezvous
in the States of Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisi
ana, Mississippi, Alabama,, Florida and 2orth
With such machinery in the hands of an
officer distinguished for his activity and ener
gy, Gca. Bragg has been enabled to lift his
army from ita state of weakness to a state of
gratifying strength, without weakening our
army in other quarters, and to save Middle
Tennessee from that total desolation uui tyran
ny that marks the track of thojo Northern

These officers are commandants of rendez
vous for forwarding of conscripts, volunteers
and stragglers to tl e army of Tennessee, and
have control of all the officers detailed whose
regiments were raised in their respective dis
tricts. These officers, as we understand, go
out with assurances that if absentees from the
army report promptly they aro pardoned, and
that all may volunteer and elect their compa
nies and regiments that choose to do so.
Who are our Friends 1
About twelve months ago Wm. K. Davis
attached himself to Col. Starne' Kegiment
3rd. Tennessee cavalry, and served for some
months without pay, bearing in most cases his
own expenses. The Yankees when here des
troy d his crop and much ot his furniture
killed his stock, poultry, Ac taking his corn
and meat and driving his family from their
homes; af.er which they almost dernolishod
the hous:. whoro he lived, and burnt tho barn
and threshor. On the hoelg of thi3, all kis
children sickened and died within six months
next followed the destruction of his house
in Winchester by fire, for which he is to pay
$1000. The citizuns saved for him many of
the door shutters, blinds, sash Ac., which somo
of our own soldierj have taken from a cabin,
which is on tha place breaking open the door
which was nailed up, and exposing them to all
tho dangers of breakage, stealage and weather,
and whose horses are now destroying the fruit
trees, shruobery, Ac. He is at his post har
rassed by a knowledge that his wife is reduced
to her three days rations from the Yankees
knowing that her health is bad, but cannot
hear from her, and this is the news I have to
write him of our friends conduct here. God
preserve us from such friendly acts. . .
