Tha Southern rebel count strongly upon
the effect of the hot weather upon our
Northern troop. In this they will find
themselves mistaken. Mr. Russell, their
great friend and historian, in one of bis let
ters from India, stated that its climate was
best endured by the Europeans for several
' years after their arrival ; and other author
ities bare stated the same thing. Our own
zperience during the Revolutionary War
sbows that the New England troops oper
ated in the South during the summer heats
of 1780 and 1781 without difficulty.
Many glorious battles were fought by them
during the hottest months, and no one
heard of their relaxing in courage or con
duct during July, August and September of
those years. ' ' '

"We have lately had ft goneral review;
aud I have much' ptoasurc ' in informing
you that we made a better appearance, and
went through our exercises more like sol
diers than I had expected.
"The Southern States are rash and
blameable in the judgement they form of
tbcir bretliern of tuo four Aew England
Stales. I do assure you, with all my par
tiality for my own countrymen and preju
dices against them, I cau but consider
them as the flower of the American
army. They are a strong, vigorous and
hardy people, inured to labor and toil,
which pur people seldom are; and though
our hot and eager spirits may suit bettor in
a sudden and desperate enterprise, yet, in
the way in which wars are, now carried on,
you must look for permanent advantages
only from that patient and persevering
temper which is the result of labor. The
New Englandors are cool, considerate and
sensible, while we are' all fire and fury.
Like their climate, they maintain an equal
temperature; whereas we cannot kbino but
we burn. They have r uniformity and
stability of character to which the people
of do other State have any pretensions;
hence they must and will always preserve
their influence in this ' great" Empire.
Were it not for the drawbacks and disad
vantages wbicb the influence of their popu
lar opinions on the subject of Government
have on their army, they soon might and
probably would give law to it,

The Vicksburg (Miss.) Sun says it has
every reason to believe that the whole
South-western country is swarming with
abolition emissaries. It learns from gen

with negroes, and endeavoring to incite them
to rebellion. .;' . . ' , -

Your letters of April 28 were received

London Times contained, have completely

the tears gushing into our eyes as wo rend
this glorious statement of Northern loyally.

America, I shall leave all ray books jtnd

The Difference Between Them and Us.
The Charleston Mercury thus demands
the summary jailing of all Northern men in
the Southern Confederacy: : ' j
- How is it possible to keop our movement
or our plans to ourselves, with ten of thou
sands of men within the Confederate 8tatea,
wandering all about, who are not citizens
of any of them ? The thing is ridiculous.
The man who is not a citizen, either by
birtb or adoption, of any of the Confeder
ate States, and who is a citizen of the Bel
ligerent power, should be in the jailV It is
his proper place. He is an enemy by law,
birtb,, and nature, and right! He is a pris
oner, by the laws of common sense.
While the Confederate traitors are fight
ing against oar Government, and putting
every one of its peaceful citizens among
them in jail, we are liberally extending
protection and even courtesy to every
Southerner who comes among us, and let
ting tbeir soldiers taken in arms go fre.
