The Northern Papers.
Many of our Southern exchanges are
tilled with the menduoious accounts of
the Northern press on the late battles in
Maryland. They are generally well writ
ten, but, as they are made up mostly of
lies and misrepresentations, we can't ex
actly see the object of their re-production.
They are calculated to orente doubts in
the mind of the indiscriminate reader,
and furnish a foundation ior the disaf
fected to build reports upon prejudicial
to the Southern cause. Of course, their
appearance in Southern papers, is intend'
ed for no such purpose.
The Pork and Beef Business.
We entirely agree with the Chattanoo
ga Rebel, in the following paragraph:
We consider ourselves in duty bound
as a good citizen of the Confederate Sta

this subject,; and will be able to prove

and if the onme thing is repeated this
year, the fault shall not be ours.
The President and Seoretarv at War
ought to know,a and it is the business of
trie publio journals to state these loots,
and to show what outrages were commit
ted in the purchase of so oalled beef cat
tle, and the manner in which hogs were
slaughtered and pretended to be made
baoon of. We call upon ull good citizens
who have sons or 'relatives in the army, or
who expect to be there themselves, to
give their testimony against these tliiugs
in order that similar outrages may not
be committed this full. We spoak par
ticularly of what happened in Middle
Tennessee; what happened in other pla-
oes, other can and we nope will state.

The Lynchburg paper of the 25th says,
if the news brought on the previous day
be correct, and it has no reason to ques
tion it is, then it may be safely assumed
that Gen. Lee's trip into Maryland, if it
shall be productive of no further results,
is one of the most successful and brilliant
movements of this war. Jackson's dash
upon Harper's Ferry, cost the enemy in
killed, wounded and prisoners, not less
than twelve thousand men, and in arms
and munitions of war not loss than seve
ral millions of dollars. His victory near
Shcpherdstown on Saturday last, cost
thorn not less, we presume, than six or
eight thousand men, and as many stand
of arms. The two battles of Sharpsburg
and fioonstaoro,' cost them not less 'than
15,000 men, so that, it may be safely esti
mated, the enemy has lost from thirty
five to forty thousand men since Lee en
tered Maryland, besides the seven thou
sand prisoners and the twelve thousand
killed and woundod in the last two bat
tles at Manassas making a grand total
of 55,000 men in less than one month!
Our losses in all these engagements will
not, we are confident, amount to more
These repeated disasters to the federal
arms must greatly weaken and demoral

and courage, as our officers have shown
The Richmond Enquirer, speaking of
the common notion that everybody has a
right to publish what ho please, at tho
publisher's expense and not his own, says,
The press is only free to its editors, and
to thoso whom its editors believe to have
good ground for addressing the publio and
something to say which the publio has an
interests in hearing. We recommend
those who labor under this mistake to
consider the following tact: that news
papers are made tor the large class who
read, and not the small class who want to
write. The idea that when a man sub
scribes for a newspaper, he lays its pro
prietor under some uennable obligation,
or that he has a right to publish his com
munications therein witn a single proviso
that they shall be inoffensive, is a popu
lar fancy and a most ridiculous mistake,
which ought to be cprreoted. JNot only
has he no such right: but tho editor who
persntu nun xo piir uttniTt-resling Kiatter
in his columns infringes upon the rights
of four or five thousand other people to
gratify ore individual. Very few editors
act so absurdly.
The Battle of Saturday.
An official dispatch, dated Staunton,
September 23d, was received early in the
day yesterday, communicating the intel
ligence of another fight and another de
cided and brilliant victory on Saturday.
This dispatch was received by Gen. G.
W. Smith, and was read in tho House of
Representatives yesterday morning. The
following is a copy of the dispatch :
General: .A dispatch has just been re
ceived from Winchester, dated 21st. The
enemy crossed 10,000 men over the river
at Sliepardstown, and were immediately
attucked by Jackson's corps and routed.
Their loss very heavy; ours slight. Quite
a number of arms taken. Jackson has
reorossed into Maryland.
H. IS. Davidson,
Colonel, P. A. C. S.
During the day nothing later was re
ceived with reference to the engagement,
except that passeugors who came by tho
Central train stated that it was reported
at Stuanton that our victory was complete,
and the enemy was terribly slaughtered.
The same report also represents that we
had captured some four or five thousand
of the enemy. The Yankee force en
gaged in this fight crossed the Potomao
at Boiler's Mill, one mile below Sliep
ardstown, and tho fight must therefore
have ocourred in the immediate vicinity
ot that town.
The statement that General Jackson
with his corps recrossed into Maryland,
after the buttle of Saturday, is hardly
probable, unless there was a concerted
plan for a similar move of our whole force.
It may be that Maryland will again be
invaded at an early day, and that Gen.
Jackson's column is the advance guard
of a second invasion. But in the ab
sence of facts, it is idle to speculate upon
what our future movements will bo.
In the Congressional proceedings
Saturday, it will be seen that Mr. Kenan,
of this State, baa introduced "a bill to
create and abolish certain orfioes, where
by the effective strength of the army will
be greatly inoreused." The object of
this measure is, we learn, to remove mil
itary men and able-bodied young men
otherwise subject to conscription, from
all offices in the army whose duties may
be as well performed by civilians not li
able to conscription. The ett'ect will be
to bring in the field a very large body of
young men whose energies are now em
ployed in offices which can be as well, if
not better, filled by civilians who, other?
wise, would take no part in "the revolu
tion. It Is a great economical measure,
and we hope Congress will hesitate long
before it suffers it to be rejeoted. -iShv.

"The Union feeling existing there
that they talk so much about does not
exist; for Butler says that even the, wo
mill and children are the 'd d'st rebels'

Union feeling displayed, where there
w.is nothing to be gained. . Self-interest
bai been the parent of all Union feeling
efcliibited there of this I feel certain.
To ilemonBtrate this fact, let me relate an
incident which I know to be authentic.
A Mrs. , whose husband has come
o.rt strong on the Union subject, know
ii'ihat in the publio schools there would
foHRMUtf; opportunities , for . those 'm
would hurrah for die stars and stripes,
nhd desiring to obtain the principalsliip
of one of the girls' high schools, called
upon General Butler, accompanied by a
."socesh" lady, who was anxious to 'see
the Bruto without having any busiuess
herself to tuke her there. Mrs. , af
ter cdmp'.imenting Butler highly upon
the condition of the streets and the city
generally, and exprexsing her devoted al
legiance to the old flag, stated that she
called, actuated solely by the promptings
of her heart, to tuke the oath of allegi
ance Butler allowed her to get that fur,
and ino farther "Get out, madam! got
outl 'don't say another word; I have nev
er sen the woman in the South yet, who
would take the oath of allegiance, or
even hear of it, unless they hud an ob-
ject to gain in it. They are tho damndest
rebels in the whole Confederacy ot rebels.
Get out, madam; you want some fuvor
under that; go.'" And out she had to go.
Thel seccsh lady could'ut keep it, you
may be sure; and it was no time before
the ttory was out. Auother incident:
While our veBsel was lying at the pickets,
the Yankee sentinels picked up a little
boy of about six years, who was playing
near Vhem, and tried to induce him to
hurrah for Lincoln. "I won't." "Hur
rah, and I'll give you something." "I
won V Catching him up, and suspend
ing tlie little fellow over tho canal, they
said: "Hurrah for Lincoln, or we'll drop
you in," "Drop and be damned," said
little rebel; and, with a shout, they set
him down, saying he was rebel pluck to
the back-bone. These two instances that
1 know of, are pretty fair specimens of
tho Union feeling there. A deadly ha

burns in the heurts of old and young,
men,' women and children, with few ex
ceptions to tho rule.
Movements in Western Virginia.
From a gentleman who arrived in this
city yesterday, we have some interesting
particulars of the .novoments of the
tnfctfS .unaer major uenerai coring, in
Ttnvn rii-ifiniii Q,l -!t iil n fci wi..lr
tha army broke camp at their former
headquarters, (the Narrows of New river,
in Giles county.) moving in three col
umns. Thoso three columns formed a
junction on Tuesday morning at Shady
Springs, in Kaleigh county, and that eve
ning encamped a short distance beyond
Kaleigh Court House. On Wednesday
they reached McCoy's, in Fayette county,
.nine miles South-east of the Court House.
On Thursday morning they continued
their march in fine spirits.

t$r The Richmond Whig has the fol
lowing in an article about the Exemption
Bill. Tho measure proposed in Congress,
to which it bus reference, will most ef
fectually muzzle the press and stop ull
unpleasant newspaper criticisms of Con'

The Senate seems to be actuated by
the idea that newspapers can be conduc

the conscription age. They labor under
an ereious misconception of the busi

to suspend publication. And this is pro

will ceiuiy, upon nonor or oath, to bo es

Greeley and the War. ' l'
Horjoe Greeley, in the New York Tri
bune, of November 16th, I860, after tlie
election of Lincoln, gave utterance to the
following sentiments: :
"We hold with Jefferson to the inali
enable right of communities to alter or
abolish forms of Government that have
become oppressive or injurious, and if the
ootton States shall become satisfied that
they can do belter out of the Union than
in it, we insist on letting them go in
peace. The right-to secede may be a .re
volutionary one, but it exists, neverthe
less, and we do not see how one party
can have a right to do, what another pav
ty has a Hicht to nrevent. Wheneverla
considerable section of the Union shaVl j
deliberately resolve to go out, we shun,
resist all conservative measures, design'..
to keap it.in.Wa Uouo, never.''? liv t&7
a Republic, whereof one section is pinn
ed to the residue by bayonet.1' - ,
In the same paper of December 17th,
18G0, he said: "If ever seven or eiglt
States send agents to Washington to say:
'Wo want to get out ef the Union,' we
shall feel constrained by our devotion to
human liberty to say, 'lot them go!' And
we do not see how we could take the oth
er side, without coming in direct conflict
with those rights of men which we hold
paramount to all political arrangements,
however convenient and advantageous."
Horace's plan failod. "A considerable
section of the Union deliberately resolv
ed to go out" they sent agents to Wash
ington to say: "We want to get out of
the Union," but they were not permitted
to "go in peace."
Shortly after tho war began, Grcclcy
proposed that if the Yankee army should
be beaten in a pitched battle of any mag
nitude, it should be accepted by them as
ovidence that the Southern "rebellion"
was no transient and circumscribed dis
turbance, but a general uprising, which
it would be wrong if not useless to ul-4
tempt to control by force. Manassas
came up to the requirement but the war
went on. Some time after, Horace pro
posed that if the war should lust twelve
months, the contest should then bo aban
doned by the North, since there was no
instance in history of a revolution that
had maintained itself successfully for
twelve months being after suppressed.
The twelve months expired, but still tho
war went on. At a later day he exclaim
ed, "Woe be to this lad (Yankee land)
if, when the month of May comes, 0e
Rebellion still rears a defiant tront."-

Governor Vance is for the strict and
faithful enforcement of the conscription
law, and the rigorous and decisive prose
cution of the war. He justly and proud
ly pronounces a lofty eulogy on the noble
Slate whose bolm has been placed in his
Tne Boad to Glory.
"The road to glory would cease to be
arduous if it were trite and trodden: and
great minds must always bo ready, not
only to take opportunities, but to v ake

day. She exclaimed, 'My son, thou art

him. On a second occasion, he cut the
Gordiun knot which others had in vain at

human glory, like the mettled hounds of
Achaitou, must pursue the gamo, not
only where there is a path, but where
there is none. They must be able to sim
ulate and dissimulate; to leap and to
creep; to conquer the earth like Ciosar;
to fall down and kiss it like Brutus; to
throw their Bword like Brennus, . into
the trembling scale; or, Nelson, to snatch
the laurels from the doubtful hand of vic

them. That policy that can strike only
while the iron is hot, will be overcome by

our people a desire for re-Uhibh and tho
relationships that formerly, existed be

There may be heroism in. the botning
of towns, the sacking of cities and iue
robbery of property, but it is only such
heroism as is known in history among
vandalio hordes and highway robbers.
We envy not tho North the reputation it
will bear on the page of impartial history.
If the conduot of the British in ' the wars
of the revolution and 1812 was such as to
estrange our feelings and respect front
that people, the conduct of the North,
in the present war, is equally calculated
to excite our disgUBt, contempt ana
hatred. If we never have been hereto
fore, we are certainly now, two peoples.
No true Southern man or woman here
after will acknowledge fraternal relation
ship with tho detested Yankee. Let
both us and our posterity learn to despise
and hate them.
