Southern Aegrocs to flic Rescue!
It seems that the late Conscription law,
passed hvj Lincoln's Abolition Congress, I
contains a section which authorizes the ,
(lovernors of the " loiul States'' to send
agents into the Slates in rebellion, except
Arkansas, I.onisana and Tennessee, for the
purpose of recruiting soldiers for th
Northern army. The business intrusted
to these agents simply means the stealing
of negroes and sending them Xorth there
to be uniformed and equipped as the law
directs, mustered into the service of the
United States and then sent South, for the
humane and christian purpose of being
slaughtered. Of course no sane man be
lieves for one moment, that these northern
judriots will ever succeed in enlisting ten,
if even one southern irhite man to light
the battles of the North. If they are not
all captured and hung upon "sour anjle''
trees, they will have a must remarkable
streak of good hick. We think that most
of them will not remain long in 'Dixie."
Of all the filly and incomprehensible acts
of this demented and law-defying admin
istration, this last is the most abject and
humiliating. It is a full, open and shame-

Four years ago, when the leagues took
the first fit of mania about Lincoln and
Hamlin, when every Republican, man
and boy, was uniformed with a cape and
n cap and a lamp ; the Democratic party
saw there was trouble aheadr and knew
that war was inevitable, and that Lincoln
and his party never could mana-e it. !
The party knew thcu, as they kaoiy COW,
that the party of the capes caps and lamps,
would not be so anxious to deck them
selves with fighting uniform. They knew
they were bloodthirsty enough, but at the
same time they wished to save their own
hides secure. They were to fight to the

Federal line formed a semi-circle. The
western Hank was three miles north of
Atlanta ; the eastern Hank was six miles
east of Atlanta, at Dc-catur. On Wed

the Confederate works, but could do
nothing. His attacks were all repulsed,

trains. 1 he 1-ederals retreated across
leach lree Creek. In this retreat Mc

ates, besides many prisoners, captured
sixteen cannon and five hundred wagons.
As soon as the Federal eastern Hank
was broken, the Confederates attacked

began an assault at four o'clock on Fri
day after. After a severe contest the
federal trooqs abandoned their works and

losses on neither fide arc reported! The
Confederate General Hood in his report
says that he captured two thousand pris
oners, twerly-two cannon and five hund
red wagons. General Stoneman, with
the Federal cavalry, who was sent around
the west side of Atlanta, to destroy the
railroad leading to Macon, found the en
emy in too strong force to accomplish his
purpose. The Confederates now hold
the railroad running east from Atlanta
to Augusta, and also the village of De
catur. Every railroad running out of
Atlanta, except the one north to Dulton,
is now in their possession. At last ac
counts the Federal army, with the ex
ception of the western Hank was posted
along Peach Tree Creek. The western
Hank was posted on its southern bank.
The Confederates now opjose the crossing
of the creek, and the Federal line extends
from a point three miles north of Atlanta
to a point two miles north of Decatur.
Since Friday last General Sherman has
acted on the defensive. Various Confed
erate attacks have been made upon hit-po'-ition
on the north bank of Peach Tree
Creek. The' were feeble, however, and
easily repulsed. Sherman has not yet
made any attempt to recover his former
position on the south side of the creek.
Tliere is very lit tie intelligence from
Western Maryland. There is no doubt,
however, that the Confedearte exoedition
is ended. General Wright with the Fed
eral troops is at Harper's Ferry and
along the Potomac. I lis advance has
re-occupied Martinsbnrg. The Confed
erates have again destroyed the Baltimore
and Ohio Railroad around Martinsbnrg.
The expedition of A. J. Smith east

is a great mystery about his confli-t with
Forrest, once h?ra!dcd as a brilha-.U vic

alter it Smith made a brisk retreat.

troops to Yiel.sb'.-.rg.

:Mr. Lincoln thinks thus to profit,

gives him the control now, through his
arms, of the North, and of such parts of
the Soutli as those arms can occupy.
Tliere is, however, to be learned even
from this, a very salutary lesson for us
North, when called upon for a conscrip
tion of o0(,000 more men, viz:
"This war is kept, and Peace is now
rejected, on'g to free negroes "
inasmuch as the correspondence shows,
we could have a restoration of the Union
and our trade and commerce, if the poli
cy as to the negro freedom was not in the
way. Or, in other words, the old story,
500,000 more Northern white men are
to be made conscripts of, or taxed, to buy
men to be made soldiers of, only to free
the blacks of the South !
