ation of the affair. They will accept our thanks
for their liberality.

"Twbntt Days." The Presided t's proc
lamation, calling upon the rebels to break
up tboir combinations and disperse "within
twenty days" was dated April 15. The
time allowed them will, tnerefore, expire on
the 5th of May, when, if they remain com
bined for the overthrow of the Government,
their rebellion will be "suppressed." The
time of the Government to begin tho work
of suppression will be the 6th of May.
From that day it will not be no longer de
fense against rebellion, but suppression of
rebellion. And rebels will soon learn to
appreciate the changed attitude of the
Troops in Virginia.
