A Southern Editor’s Account of Affairs at the South. The Editor of the Vicksburg (Miss.) Whig, who recently left Vicksburg, publishes in the Chicago Tribune a detailed and interesting re view of tlie condition of affairs in the rebel States. He says that prices of goods of every description are enormously high in the Gulf States. The corn crop was very abundant, and sells for $1 25 per bushel. A liberal sup ply of cattle is obtaiued from Texas. Salt is Scarce, but a partial supply is obtained from Western Louisiana. Mobile is now the only avenue of communication between Richmond and the West, telegraphic, mail and passenger. Mobile and Vicksburg are thus considered as two very important points l.y the rebels, and their loss would be regarded as disastrous in the extreme. THE REBEL CONSCRIPTION. The conscript act is being rapidly enforced, and its enforcement has resulted in the com plete prostration of all private enterprise. Men are taken from their tlelds, workshops and llre sides, and immediately placed in camps of in struction, from which they are attached to re giments and companies, as they may be need ed. The regulations are such that few or no substitutes can be furnished, and as a conse quence all are compelled to take up arms. This act has effected a very great increase in the rebel army, which will number not far from 700,000, if allowed to be euforced throughout the South. There will be arms of one klud and another for all these meu, and their native pride, added to the linger of scorn from those at home pointed at all delinquents, will cause them to use these arms quite as efficiently as any men iu the Held. DETERMINED SPIRIT OF THE SOUTH. The Union, conservative, or sober senti ment, as you choose to term it, of the South is dormant, unable to make any head against the popular current, while the prevailing and dom inant sentiment is determined resistance. This sentiment is not to be lightly regarded nor overlooked. It is not an exposition ot disun ion, but an embodiment of intense, unrelent ing hatred to the North, with the watchword, “ Death to the Yankees,” as ail the Northern ers are termed. Perhaps no better exposition of this feeliug can be given than that in a spcecn maae oy uurKsaaie in me reuei c on gress. In the course of his remarks on a re cent occasiou he made use of some expressions which caused a member to remind him of a constitutional provision that was adverse to his sentiment. Said Barksdale: “ 1 wish gen tlemen present, and the world in general, to understand that constitutions, laws, justice, rights and precedents are all to be overlooked, uuthought of, and must yield to the one great, vital, all-important, Imperative necessity of whipping the Yankees. That once accom plished and we are willing to listen to twad dle about constitutions.” And he spoke the prevailing sentiment of the South. It is this feeling that has enabled the authorities to en force the conscript act FEELISOS OF THE UXION MEN. The feelings of the Union men of the South ' have undergone a great change siuce the com mencement of the rebellion. At that time, helpless in themselves to stem the tide, debarr ed f oin expressing a sentiment favorable to the Union by the cry of secessionists, that no Union men or friends of the South could he bet ter Southern men than those who were “native and to the manor born,” distressed at the ter rible stale^f things around them, greived at the impoteucy of the authorities at Washing ton. overwhelmed by the terrific excitement which was sweeping the country like a whirl wind, they were left w ith every thing to fear and nothing for which to hope. There was no opportunity for consultation or co-operation. The merest utterance of a Union sentiment would cost a man his life. The vacillating and dilatory policy of the Federal government gave no hope of relief, and the only course left the Union man was to stultify his better feelings, forswear his earnest convictions,and join pestif erous hut popular multitudes, andsoon he could be seen with pale cheeks and quivering lips, uttering sentiments which belied his heart. As time wore on the Federal Government began to show signs of vitality, and ultimately of power; and now the Union men are again looking to the future. In giving the senti ments of these men, I wish to be as careful and accurate ns possible, premising by saying that this sentiment is undoubtedly the feelings of nearly two-thirds of the substantial men of the South, The Union men have no hope of. and no desire for, the restoration of the Union us it was. Such restoration gives no guaranty against a repetition at any time of the horrible ordeal through which they are now passing. The doctrine of State rights must be greatly limited if not wholly ignored. The so-called Confederate government has already done this and demonstrated it* wisdom. The General Government must become such a power that it* agents will not discharge their constitution al functions by sufferance, hut by authority. The administration of the legal duties of the general government must not lie discharged in a spirit of dalliance and apology, but, while being conducted with moderation, must evi dence firmness and determiuat.on. It is be lieved all this can be accomplished under the authority already delegated by the Constitu tion. While the freedom of speech and the press must be preserved inviolate, treason written or spoken cannot be looked upon as freedom, but anarchy, and must be immedi ately and effectually crushed. In a word the government must be a living,tangible substance and not a theory. The slavery question—the real cause of all the troubles, and the means l>y which, crafty, scheming and ambitious men hare been able to seize and nearly over turn the mildest and best government on earth —must be effectually and forever settled. 1UC. DUADAHlLUr.A i ur * U tVMStDU. The bombardment of Vicksburg was no in significant allair, although tlie results were meagre. The location of the city, which is dotted around among hills, proved its safety. On learning that the fleet had started out Irom New Orleans, and that the city was to lie de fended, a large majority of the citizens imme diately removed their household effects to the interior. The merchants ami traders did the same with their stocks. The country for miles around was soon dotted with camps of every description, from the camp made of brush to the more pretentious one erected by throwing carpets over stakes previously driv en in the ground. The general expectation was that the city would lx; captured the first day of tlie bombard inent, the object in moving being to save life, and await the hour when the fatal blow should lie struck. The result was they were compelled to remain in this condition for three months, during which time there was more or less shelling every day.— Most of tlie shells from (.'apt. Porter's mortars (Coin. Farragut’s fleet) fell without exploding, w hile those from the upper fleet (Com. Da.is’j almost invariably exploded. Of the percus sion shells tired scarcely any exploded. They were opened, and tlie powder extracted, quite an important item, as powder was $4 a pound. * * * Tlie bombardment was kept up, with different degrees of intensity, at intervals of several hours, lor eleven weeks, yet the damage to the city will be repaired for les8 than one hundred thousand dollars. HOPES AND CALCULATIONS OF THE REBELS. All the energies of the Confederacy will be bent to maintain the war till the expiration of Mr. Lincoln’s presidential term. The idea has become general that l>y that time a man will Ixt elected who will represent the views of the peace democrats. It is well understood—how ever erroneous it may be—that every day adds to the number of their friends In the North, and that already the Northern secessionists, conservatives they are called here, are in a numerical majority. Every argument used in the North in reference to the constitutional rights of men who have trampled tlie Constl tion under their feet, is hailed with delight.— A ll ,l... .........— i; . . i... _ Democrats arc Immediately copied aud spread broadcast, aud received with the wildest joy. BEDEL FINANCES. So long as Confederate notes will answer the purposes of money—which they now do at tlie point of tlie bayonet, as any man refus ing to take them is subjected to a court mar tial—so long will the rebels be easy on money matters. While these notes express on their face a promise of redemption at a time uncer tain. and in tlie event of a contingency which it is to be hoped may never occur—a treaty of peace w ith the United States—it is well under stood that, even in tlie event of these contin gences being fuliilled, the money w ill never be paid. Tlie first act will be a general sweeping repudiation of the entire indebtedness ol tbe rebel government, while tlie present system of direct taxation will lie maintained. As the country now holds over SslllO,000,000 worth of cotton, this tax can be readily paid, while tlie | holder- of rebel scrip would burn every dollar in their possession to have peace. Their suc cess, tlferefore, holds out tlie brightest induce ments to the leaders. With slavery established forever, and themselves permanently installed in otliee, they could desire no more. And cer tainly, to a man utterly devoid of any princi ple. and governed entirely by selfish motives, the end in view is worth striving for, aud will lie striven for desperately, the more particu larly as they are convinced that the majority of the North will lie too happy to treat with them at the next Presidential election. Signs ot the Times. The names of the two distinguished men ; chosen to lead the country in the present cri sis, and whose election precipitated it, coutain a remarkable number of significant coinciden ces for tlie curious and the superstitious to in terpret. t. The African element is too prominent to lie overlooked. We have tlie generic sylla ble, Ha in, in botli the President aud vice l’res denl's name. Neither is it a common syllable in the names of men. Further, the greatest of old African generals, Hannibal, appears in the Vice President’s signature, leading the contraband syllable, Ham. into notice. Still more singularly, it is llam-iin. which is a contraction for line, or succession of descen dants. Thus, but a dull eye is needed to see In the Vice President’s name, Hannibal lead ing forth the children of Ham. If now we affix Coin of Liu-coln, (which is but con, and signifies with or together,) we have a very straight and pretty prophecy. And while we are holding straws up to the wind, it would be au omission to neglect the pregnant hint that it is tlie Vice President’s name that reads the fate of tlie times; mean ing that the main issue is held subordinate. Not omitting to note that in Abraham we ; have a name ol e uphatic meaning to many j nations, may dismiss the contraband element with some satisfaction. 2. The notion of irreparable Union is en folded in the fact that the last syllable of the President's Christian name, and the first of his surname are repeated as welded together in the Vice-President’s surname—Ham-lin. 3. It is a very unusual circumstance that the name of the State which each gentleman represents is easily spelled from the letters of ! his surname—Illinoi from Lincoln, and Main | from Hamlin; each lacking its final letter, but j fully retaining its sound; which I interpret as ; portending loss to the free States, East and West, but without injuring their vital integri ty. Of course none of us are superstitious*, but we do like to see the new moon first over the right shoulder. And before the last quarter of Abraham-Lin-coln's and Hannibal Ham lin's administration lapses into the next “Hung fragment of pale Luna’s ring,” we have pro I phetic faith that the spirit ot the old Cartha ginian General will nod thanks from among the supernals, to the brave Saxon chieftains ; whose narne9 have been contributed in sylla bles by the sable race.—[Independent.
