hear. JJut it haa proved itself to bo
an earnest and united people, capable
of heroic sacrifices in a conflict in
which its Government lias been
strengthened rather than weakened bv
the strain which has been put upon it.
In the South there has been no shack
ling of the press, hear, hear, no sup. j
pression of law, no abridgment of "the
liberties of the citizen ; but all have
rallied as 'one man under a President
who by the dignity and moderation of
his counsels, by the high bearing of
his army, and the devotion ff bis
people, has given an elevation to the
Southern cause which, slowly, incrcd
tilotisly, reluctantly, now the third
year of the war has begun, has won'
tor it, irresistibly and universally, the
kenorous sympathies of Europe Well,
when we turn to 'the North, what aj
contrast is there exhibited. Its milita-1
rv failure, great as they bavo been, '
sink into insignificance compared with
its moral downfall. Its war has been, !
not against freedom but against civili. i
zation : for, imperfect as are tho no.
counts received from Northern chan-'
nels, and always colored as they are
to its own advantage, they give us
ample evidenco of tho spirit in which
tho North has carried on the struggle.
Sir, in the sinlcinr of the etono fleet
before Charleston, in the submersion of
the food -producing districts of tho .
Mississippi, in the brutality to vorncn '
at Now Orleans, in tho shooting of
prisoners in cold Mood by General i
M'Neill, and in tho President's incite
ments to a servile war, with all its
cruelties and horrors, we have present

.JlY ASA II A UTS:
I would not die on tho battle-field.
Where the missiles are Hying wild;
'Tis u fancy aeath but it doesn't suit
My mamma's darling child.
Tho cannon's roar and tho clash of steel.
And the victor's joyous shout,
Sound well, no doubt if a fellow don't care
But I'd rather be counted out.
I would not di on the vessel's deck,
"With the wild waves dashing around,
'Cause it might occur '.hat I'd have to swim,
And I can't so I'd surely bo drowned;
And the idea of pickling myself in brine
1 too salty to ie endured, .
b-side, there's a dearth of salt in the South,
And we'veother meats to be cured.
I would not dio at heme in bed
It would kill poor Klubs with sorrow,
For if to-day he should find me dead,
Ho would die himself to-morrow; -And
since I've thought tho matter o'er,
(Tho truth for onee I'm giving).
If I'm to have a choice in trw thing,
I guess I'll keep on living!

Gimmons, April 1W., 1ST,:.
At the commencement of this war i while, Sir, these nets havo roused tho
T believe the sympathies of nine-tenths I spirit of the South, and united every

ot ivngnsnmen an tenrieu to tne side
of the North. I believe they owed
that tendency, favourable to tho North,
tlret, Itfjeauso we believed that there
was uo adequate cause for the secession.
It was, as we thought, a weak and
short-lived assertion of independence,
which would certainly be put down
man, woman, unit child in the deter
mination to prefer death to submission,
they have not been without their effect
in Europe. Wo watched the conflict
at first with wonder, with curiosity,
with interest, before our sympathies
were given to either side. But as the
character of the war, and also the truo
Than.nfriiin. it was an interruption to 'character of tho combatants developed
our commerce, which disposed us to I themselves as it bocamo visible that
be impatient and intolerant; and for 1 -ho war was one -for existence on tho
many reasons we in England had, I j one s;de and for extermination on the
believe, a general desire that the re-! other, and as the full consequence to
doction of t!-e South, as it was sup- tho South of every city becoming a
posed to be inevitable, would also be New Orleans, with every governor
Bpedy. But as events proceeded thov onuiloug of the deeds which exalted
very soon falsified those expectations, General Butler into a hero, presented
and the North has now had bitter ex- j themselves more vividly to the mind
vorienceof tho magnitude of the task ! of Europe, then I do believe that
it bad undertaken. Tho war which always excepting t nse whose political

IIoimiuLR Murder of an Enrolunq
Officer. Col. James K. McAnally, en
rolling officer for tho Ma'es' Mill Dis
trict, in Grainger county, Tenn., waR
waylaid and shot dead from his horse
on the night of tho 1st inst. Tho place
selected for tho deed was a lonely nook
in tho forest, by which tho deceased
was in tho habit of passing late in the
evening. Tho murderer preparod a
rest for his gun, opened a vista through
tho bushes to tho road so that his fire
would not bo obstructed, and when the
unconscious victim of his malice ap
peared, about dark, from a doublo bar
rel shot gun, discharged ono musket
ball and thirty -nine buckshot into his
body, killing him instantly. Col.
McAnally was ono of the first citizons
of Grainger county, and, as we are in
formed, a most devoted Southern patri
ot. When the war commencid, though
an old man, he led a company into the
service, and only retired, after much
gallant service, under tho pressure of
shattered health. As an enrolling offi
cer he had boon very zealous in tho
discharge of his duties, and to this fact
is attributed the malico that, in so foul
and dastardly a manner, sent him,
without a moment's warning, to his
final account. Knoxville Jirgisfer, 3Z,
European Miscellany. A correspon
dent of tho New York world, undor
date Paris, May 15, says :
In a recent conversation held with
tho Emperor f no matter by whom) his
Maj3stylet fall tho following Napole
onic remarks on tho American ques
tion: "An amicable separation be
tween North and South would havo
been tho grandest triumph ever achiev
ed by republicanism ; it would bavo
compelled the admiration of tho world.
As it is, republicanism has never been
so 'dead in Europe as now. The peo
ple' seo that Republics, or tho men who
administer their Governments, havo
the same pride, passions and lust of
empire that influenco sovereigns; while,
being always unstable in their posi
tion, thoy have not tho rcsponsibili
ties that wo havo, who seek to consoli
date dynasties by paciflcuting tho
masses. Tho monareMces of Eu
rope do not find your American war
an unrated ovil. We can , afford to
euffar much io our material- interests
wbilo this revolutionary dream of the
Kopublicans is dissolving in blood."
.1 Skirmish nmr Fredericksburg. On
Saturday morning, ;it an early hour,
several regiments of Yankees crossed
tho Eappahannock, at Deep Ilun, below
Fredoricksburg, and made a movement
against tho right flank of our forces,
Hamilton's Crossings. They were per
mittod to come within four hundred
yards of tho Crossings, when our moh
fired and rushod upon them. Never
were Yankees subjected to a, more tor
riblc fright. A few fell, and tho rest
fled, many dropping their muskets, and
all striking for the other side rf the
river with unaparalleled rapidity.
Some prisoners were taken. Richmond
