"writes his editorials in uniform, instead of
files of newspapers, may be found rifles, mus

excuse th size of our paper upon the plea of
our inability to procure hands. AVe do not
wish to brag of how many left our office to
take the Arsenal at this place, hut we will
say that every one of our hands had their
muskets, and were in the ranks on duty, ex
cept one boy, and a negro pressman.
"When this war has ceased ; when Old Abe
Lincoln's head appended to his lank frame
shall have been secured, and he marched
through the Confederate States as an accom
panyment to some penny show, we expect to
return enlarge our paper, lay aside our sword
and use our in again. Whatever our rea-

we will try and make up "by fighting. AVe
, do not wish to write another line imtil Wash

lawful owners the Confederate States. May
heaven hasten the day.
There is nothing that should be so cheering
to the heart of any southern man as the una
nimity with which our people have set them
selves to work to resist the black hosts of
.Abolitionism. The la lies themselves, '"Cod
bless them do not think that there time
can be disposed with, but have volunteered
to serve the State so far as they can by mak-

providing comforts for the troops. A young
.gentlemen from this place lately who volun
teered, was afraid to reveal the fact to his
mother, she came to him one day this week,
and asked him if he had volunteered ? lie
replied thar he had, she then inquired if he
thought his State required his services, lie
replied that he believed she did. Then,
;said she, go my son, and all 1 ask, is that
vuii may not disgrace your State, if you dis
grace your State, never return to me ; if you
act honorably, my prayers are with you.
That was a noble mother.
A report came to this place on yesterday
thathe LaFayette Light Infantry would be re
quired at Raleigh.
The company called a meeting immediate
ly and ordered that we report our company
ready to march at at hour's warning to any
point except the arsenal at Fayetteville. It
is expected that the company Avill take up
its march on Tuesday morning.
The Richmond Disjxdch says, there is a
motive selfish to Virginia, Avhich, though all
unworthy of mention in these heroic timcs
we will venture to put down. The securing
of Maryland throws the border (the border
kas to military operations) beyond the confines
of Virgina. It opposes Maryland, as a
"breastwork and shield for Virginia, against
the assaults of the foe, The value of Mary
land to Virginia in military strategy, is illus
trated hy what is now transpiring at Balti
more and Annapolis. But the fact of Mary
land constituting such a shield and bulwark,
imposes upon Virginia and the South the duty
of supporting her with adequate forces.
The present attitude of Maryland calls loudly
upon Virginia to proceed against Washington
city. Whilst Maryland drives back his rein
forcements, surely Virginia should make haste
to capture the foe himself. This very mo
ment ought to see our long-range cannon
planted upon the heights of Arlington, and
the bayonets of our legions on the Long
Bridge. Not another week should pass over
our heads without witnessing the capture of
Scott and Lincoln, and leading them in tri
umph through the streets of Richmond.

Our neighbor Alexandria is in commotion
to-day. 'J he Confederate and State Hags are

Whatev er truth there may be in the report

earnestly at work, but there is no public
knowledge of their plans and purposes.

better known in Europe than any of his
countryman by his scientific labors, which
have proved so beneficial to the commercial
and nautical world.
