A eorrespondsnt writing from Washington to too New
York Poet, ny :
'The President has frequently of late, replied to impor
tant queiUoQi: Walt a little wbile, and you wiU be con
e Inoed that tbe government ie not idle.' Sotnelltiug ie on
foot which will turtle quiet people itiortu and South by-eod-by,
or I am no prophet. There are facta which cur
tainly iudioate a purpose to give Virginia something to do
ere lung beside the contemplation of tbe sack of Wash
ington. An extra nuniberof workmen bave just been put
on at the Navy Yard to tit up shells preparatory to their
being tilled; and to every government shop in the coun
try there is unusual activity unusual even In time of
war." Let the work go on. The eountry can watt. J

Here boys, is a first rate chance for twenty-fire
of you to serve the country, uuder the
glorious stripes aud stars; and with as gal
lant a Captain as tbe State can produce.
Union for the Sake of the Union.
Ueoy persons (ire surprised at the wonderful unity of
feeling and action of the various parties in the North in
tbe prosecution of tbe war. Tbe causes which have pro
duced this unity of feeling are these;
UAU northern men know tlist the Republicans have no
unconstitutional designs on the right of tbe South nor
do they believe that the Benjamins, the Yeneeys, tbe
Rbette, of tbs South really think they bave.
Ail Northern men now believe that this rebellion would
bav broken out if either Breckinridge, Bell or Douglas
had been elected. They believe thai this outbreak ie tbe
result of a conspiracy which lias beeu festering in the he
public ever since 1842.
They believe that the southern leaders are ambitious,
dishonest end truacheruiis tliat tbls reiwllion is their
work and wholly eauselese.
Ttioy believe that the Cniin' Is a real blessing, North
euddootb They believe the South have no grievances
wnioh cannot be legally redressed uuder the constitution.
They believe that the ostensible eauxe in altogether too
llgbt to justify the overthrow of the Sneat model of gov
ernment ever given to mankind.
They believe there Is a powerful bnt terrorised Union
party at the South, who secretly iuvoke the arm of tbe
lederal authority to restore law and order."
