Friday Morning, Norembcr 13, 1802,
An Inside View of the Rebel States.
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.

The great labor of comparing these lists with the

TODD’S LUX SOLIS
HAIR DYE!
11HK market lias boon flooded for rears with differ
. ent articles called Hair Dyes, which have never
satisfied the expectations of purchasers. The nk
plus ultra has been reached at last in TODD'S
HAIR DYE, and the article has given entire satis
faction to every person who has used it. It contains
no injurious ingredients, and gives the ha*r a beauti
ful rich brown or black color. Directions for using
—which are very simple-accompany each bottle.
One superiority of Todd's Lux .Solis Hair Dye over
all others is, you do not have to cleanse the hair or
wash it before or after usiug the dye, and there is but
one kind to be used, and that can be put on the same
as oil and water, without any trouble, unlike all oth
er dyes that have two or three different kinds to be
applied every time used. This dye is peculiarly
adapted for coloring ladies' hair. WcaUM you do not
have to wash out the dye after putting it oh. Unlike
all other dyes, it will color long hair, which other
dyes cannot do. Give this new article a trial, as we
know you will use uo other after once using this,
