T lie is tb * cry of the self-righteous wretches who are
urging war upon the Southern people. As a sample of
the spirit animating the yprofttttdly) most civilized, hu
mane and christian-tempered nation that ever existed,
we give the following extract from the leading New York
paper:
“Th* CitAsacrxR or thrCovi.v. Campakix.—We have
in the Northern cu es at least three hundred thousand ot
the most reckless, desperate men ou the face cf the
• rth. The (ioths and Vandals who descended upon
it me and ensanguined the Tiler with patrician blood
wore angels compared to these fellows, who are knowu
by the generic name of “roughs.” Of course they are
all in for the war, and the spoils thereof—more particu
larly the spoils. They have no stake in this world, no
hope for the future. They will tight like demons for
present enjoyment, and where one is killed twenty more
will spring up in Ins place. It is of such rough material
that all invincible troops are made. That we are to have
a light, tba: Virginia and Maryland will form the battle
ground, and that the Northern roughs wilt sweep those
States with hire end sword, is beyond peradveuture.—
Taey bare alreadv been excited to the bciii g point by
the rich prospect o! plunder h-ld cat by some of their
leaders, and wi 1 not he satisfied unless they have alarm
an 1 a Digger each. There is no sort ct exaggeration
about there statement/-, as the people of the border
bates will shortly ascertain to their cost. The charac
ter of the coining campaign *i I be vindictive, tierce,
bloody a. d merciless beyond paiallel in ancieut or mod
ern history.”
Foreign countries «• d future ages will refuse to credit
the fact, the’ such propo iuons haverv r been uttered.
Thev will be do. med too monstrous to have emanated troui
any but demon-. Yet w., who ee the Northern papers,
k-iow them to be fair -peci metis of the exhortations uai
ly made to ’he population of that region. That it is the
purpose and desire o! the don>iuai:t fiction at the North
to wage a war ag iu-t in. of the atrocious character here
indicated, there cn be no doubt. That wretches dia

The le«»on* of HliWff1
Do mankind ever learn from experience * Do nf ion? or
individuals profit by the lewous of the past, its follies, fail
ures and disssii n. their own or others ? Some times,
perhaps—uot always, or ger.cr.tllj, we arc sure! In the
cv.-u'e of the last few mouths, and of those apparently
ahe id of us, we are living over the scenes of near a cen
tury ago, without, ou the part of our enemies, any evi
dence that they are in the least enlightened i>y what then
occurred. The Northern and the Southern States of this
Continent occupy almost precisely the relation to each
other that the Bri ish (overt.m<nt and their American
Colonies occupied. The contest grows out of the same
assumptions of authoiity, the same usurpations, the
>ime abuses that drove our fathers to lake up arms—with
the d:ffwence only that our grievances are greater than
w<re theirs. The same hliud, raa'ignant and suicidal
policy that the ministry of George 111. attempted to eu
Inrce suppression, subjugation, punishment, outlawry—
is uow the policy of the Lincoln administration.
Listen to the words ot wisdom an 1 warning of that
profoundest and meat prophetic of Statesmen, Kduiund
Burke, uttered at that time, and make the comparison
they suggest:
“1 thi: k 1 know America. If I do not, my ignorauce
“ is incurable, lor I have spared no paios to understand
“ it; and I do most solemnly assure those of my con
“ stituents who put any sort of confidence in my
" industry and integrity, that everything that has been
done there has arisen from a total misconception of
i* this object: that our means of reconciling with it af
*• ter quarrel, of recovering it after separation, of keep
“ ing it after victory, did depend, and must depend,
•* upou a total reuunciation of that unconditional sub
“ mission which has taken su rh prepossession of the
“ minds of violent men.”
These words (says the Baltimore S‘>uth)werc written by
by Burke to the Sheriffs of Bristol in 1777. Itwasthenthat
British cvfrcicn threatened destruction to the colonies,
and that British statesmen in power boasted ol their
competency to suhjuzate weak, distracted and infant
ommunities. U..:oj men—those who were lor con iuu
.: g the Union with Great Britain, were then termed
’ >■ ilt ‘qand thus-*, it was asserted, would be upheld in
(heir r< p •• iv- ccloLies by British acldiery as the regular
and author!/ J powerof the A-semblies. Hutchinson,John
-ou, Tryon and others swelled, as the scirlet uniforms tn
tered their provinces, glotted over anticipated coifio
cations, and - t a price oa the heads of Patrio s. Then
loyalist judges charged grand juries and stigmatiz-d
resistance to lawless p>w,r, as the act of mobs, iucitcd
by traitors—and invoked the forms of law for the butch
erv and incarceration of the tricuds of constitutional lib
erty.
Burke saw it all. II s high soul scorned to corrupt and
undermine the British Constitution, by seikirgto put ish
as criminals and pirates, his bravo brethren contending
for equal rights of liberty and commerce. He saw th
ui only inose { ropneis can, wno can pem-inm* me

resources of a brave p op!e. He saw uo success iu the
evacuation of Boston—or of Xt w York by the American
Patriots. II - had read the history of the Crusades, at d
ktj.-w that ntohs of ni'llion* had been driven back by
Mahometan courage tighliuo for home and country. He
knew that God cum- t-y ptstik-i.ee and storm to thin

KOOT TROOPS.
1. In the organization ol infantry volunteer companies,
expensive, showy uniforms should bs avoided—but
strictest uniformity of color and fashion of garments
shculd be observed.
The is recommended, both for ease of manu
facture and for comfort. If a light gray color were get *
erally adopted it would be found most comfortable for
a summer campaign ; and then when the companies were
regimented there would be little if any striking diversity
of uniforms. There is no need for lsce or braid on the
Blouses of the privates—they make good "marks" for
the enemy, and should not he used for foot troops.
Xon-commiasioutd officers can be distinguished by a
chevron (rafter shape) of braid on the arms—point or
ridge down just above the elbow lor sergeants, and be
tween elbow and wrist for corporals.
Pasts or Troi'sers should be of same color and ma
terial with Blouse, cut full around hips and knees ; and
when practicable, leather gaiters should he provided a la
y.juave, to be worn outside of pants.
Shoes, of home-made quality—broad and stout in
soles, high quarters, aud low broad heels—leather laces,
and kept carefully laced when worn.
Above all, when ou active service, including guard
duty, every foot volunteer shouid wear homemade woolen
socks, also, jiannel shirts.
Be warmly dr<B~ed when on night service.
Everv tnau should be provided with an overcoat of
ea^y fit, with small cape, and skirts reaching a few inches
below the knee ; as nearly uniform in color and mate
rial with blouse as practicable. The skirts should be
arranged to button back when ou inarch, so as to give
free play to the limbs.
At least one goed heavy colored blanket should be
provided lor each men.
Leather covered Knapsacks ate expensive aud heavy.
A small Knapsack of Oenabury cotton, painted black,
can be made without difficulty in any locality in the
State. These art- the moat convenient way of keeping
the essentials of a volunteer’s Kit—his changes of socks
and fltnnels, his brushes and at least two towels.
The head cover if practicable should be a light-gray
drab or bruwn felt hat worn without feather, and as in
civil life—if black felt hats have to be used a white cotton
cover iu very watin weather will be fjuad comtortabk*.
most importance and company officers should make this
a watchful duty to enforce—the men should be made to
bathe their whole bodies as often as practicable, and
never go to sleep after a day’s march without washing
their feet—the bojy bath in the morning before the
march.
2 When a company is organized, it should be cxer
cijel by marches over the country sevpral limes a week—
m irehes of increasing length. This i: a practice of French
olli 'crs—an essential part of the drill of that practical
milhary people.

MESSAGE OF THE GOVERNOR OF MIS
SOURI.
Exicctiv* Dxi-artmvnt, J
Jtffmon Ctty, May 1, 1661. )
Gentlemen of ike tirnati and
Ike limit of Kapreuutativei :
1 had no ri-uoii to anticipate when you adj ntrucd
that circumstances would so soon arise which would
render it my imperative duty to call you together again.
It is deeply to be regretted that such a step has to be
taken at a season of tho year when time is so precious
and the lo.-s of it in your private affairs must occasion
such serious inconvenience. I am confident, however,
that yon have not reluctantly r. sponded to the call, and
that the objects for which you have assembled can he
promptly aud unanimously accoropliahed in a very tew
days.
8 nee your adjournment events affecting the pcac» and
safety of the country have been transpiring almost witti
the rapidity of thought, and of a nature will cilculated
to awaken in the bosom of every patriot tho most
gloomy apprehensions. Manifestations from every
quarter, aud of a character neither to he over
looked or d sregarded, indicate but too plainly
that our whole country, its Constitution and laws,
are in imminent danger of disorder and. destruction.
Our Federal Constitution, the bond ot Union of a once
united and happv people, was framed by the delegates of
distiuct and separata States, end teverally ratified by
them in their sovereign capacity as States. This Consti
tution emanated from men who were guided by intelli
gence and patriotism, and taught by the lessors of expe
rierce in history, and whose ntinds were illuminated by
the lights of philosophy and wisdom. Its object was to
establish equality and justice between the States, aud to
insure domestic trai quihty within them. Had the same
spirit of justice and patriotism which animated the nteu
who devised it, guided the people of the free States in
the proper observance of its obligations to the present
hour, we would now have a united, prosperous and happy
Ut.ion, instead of a distracted and brokcti Confederacy.
There has been no necessary conflict of interest between
the North and the South, the East and the West. \ un
dies of climate, locality and pioducts involved, it is true,
contrasting but not conflicting organizations of labor and
social structures animated by d.flerennt but not adverse
principles.
But the progress of fanaticism, sectionalism and cu
pidity in the Northern States for the last quarter of a
century has with accumulating force culminated in the tri
umph of a purely sectional faction, which, under the
forms hut in violation of the principle s of the Constitution,
threaten to destroy the sovereignity of the States aud
practically convert the Government cf the United Stans
into an overshadowit g, consolidated despotism. The
present Executive of the United States seems to regard
the States in their relations to the Federal Government
as similar to those which counties bear to State sovereign
ties. A parverriou so monstrous and so dangerous, all
wi e ar.d tell -cling men foresaw must end in a dissolution
of the confederacy, aud that result has not taken us by
surprise.
l'f,or to the inauguration of President Lincoln s ven
States had Biceded. They had united with each other
under a new Constitution, elected their ollicers. oigan
jzad armies, instituted judicial tribunals, and a-serted
all the powers rightfully belonging to seven ign States.
To tins they were impelled by well founded upptcheu
sions of imminent dauget to all their vital inter, s s, aud
bv a consciousness that everything dear to tin in was
.lirr.ulv nieiiricp.l h» the nredoini:islice of a (action
avowedly lo.sile to their very existence as communi
ties. For calamities so deplorable the people of Mis
souri cannot be reproached. They have preserved with
scrupulous lid litv their attachment to the Cons ilo
tion and the liuion. They have asked for nothing
which was not their right; they have done no bing in
derogation of the right- of others; they have patiently
submitted to many and great injuries for the sake of
peace; they have ever couns led concord and fraternity.
Their statute hook - have not been defaced by enactments
in contravention of the Constitution at.d the laws made
iu pureu nice thereof. They have been slow to believe
tbit designs, destructive of their rights and Interests,
could be entertained by the administration of Mr. Lin
coln. They refused to see iu his inaugural any purrom
ol introducing the horrors ol Civil war. They hate
cordially united in every • fT'rrt ol the | eoplo of the her
der State.- to effect such a compromise a- would secure
the rights and honor ol all, restore fraternal li chugs, ri -
construct the Union, and impart new vigor to the Con
stitution. Their counsels and their rights have been
alike unheed- d.
’ih 'old Confederacy is broken, ft ihw one has been
organised by a portion of the States, and President Lin
coln, by his'proclamation, calling out a force of 7.r*/‘O.i
men to subdue the ^tend' d Stati s, has threatened a de
structive civil war between Ills ilfttM. On the 15th day
of April. I received a di-pitch from the Secretary of
War, callii g ou mo to furui-h the Government at Wa-h
i' gtou with four r. gimente, to a d iu the prosecution of
the civil war about to be inaugurated. I am sure I but
gave utterance to the miuj.-ial hi art of the p.opie
w hen I rep'ied that Missouri would not furnish one man
to assist 111 such a war. The action of the W.vdcut is
evidently unconstitutional ai d illegal, and will o: l.v tend
to still further alienate the pimple ol the fr< c and rlavi
holding States in their opinion- and sentiments. Iu con
lir nation of this opinion, it i: sufficient to -ay that the
power ,o coerce a State by the Federal Uniou was pro
posed in a Convention that framed the Constitution, in
several different forms and rejected; and it is ati insult
in the common sense of the people to assert that t! e
w tr noon individual-, acting under the authority of a
State and by virtue of its commis-ioo, or in obedience
to its government, is not a war upou the Stite. The
President, it appears, ha- no', only di covered the power
in the Government to make war on the State0, but has
assumed that tre fit -'CUtive 1> pirtment can initiate t1 at
war. Neither Washington, nor d< II r-uu, nor Jack on,
ev. r for a moment imagined that they were clothed with
suefa a d spotic power a.- tins. On tho uOgtf.iry, we
have been taught by the following Ungmge in the fare
well address ol General Jackson, that the harmony and
permanence of the Uniou could only be perpetrated bv
-uoh a policy a* would command the love and confi
dei e * of the people of tho several S'ates. H-» said:
"But the Constitution cannot he Maintained, nor the
L'nion preserved, in opposition to public f eling, by the
iii-tb exertion of the eoeic.ve power confided to the
Government. The foundations must be 1 iid in 'he i (1 c
Lious of the people, in lb* .-'ii y i. givi s to life, lib rty,
character all I pioperty, in entry H»<uUrof the country,
iud in the fraternal aiuclitnciits wi.ich tl. etti-.-nsof the
ieveral States bear to otic auotbt r, as members pf ope
political family, mutually contributing to promoto the
happiness of i ach other."
We have also been warned by John <) lincy Adim
that the p rmini ■ ey of the Union rested not in ti e coer
cive powers cf the Federal Gove, uptenb hut in the love
X’id affetiors cf tho peo; I . Hi- opinion* ve,re express
id iu regard to the perpetuity of th.i Government, in the
lollowing str- tig and truthful language;
"The ind s-olublo link of Uniou between the people of
he several S'ates of this confederate d nation i- af< r all
30'. in the right hut in the heart. If the day should
»ver come (may Heaven avert it I) when the uff etioiii of
:be people of these States shall be alienat-d from each
>rh-r; when the fraternal spirit shall give way to cold
udiir. rence or col isioti of interest shall fester into
laired, the bands of political association will not longer
told together parties no longer attracted by the unguet
sm of conciliated tub,rests and kindly sympathies and
,ir better will it be for the peepje of the disunited States
o part in friendship from each otherth*u tp be held to
gether by constraint.”
Iu the meantime it is, in my judgment, indispensable
o our safety that wo should emulate the policy of all the
>thor States i i arming ou.- people aud planing the Stgtc
a a proper attitude lor deleusn The militia Igw should
le rev ssd and rendered more efficient. A good system
>f drill ami discipline should also be adopt, d, in order to
dace ourselves in a position where our riglrs can he de
luded by strong arms and willing hearts.
Mi-souri has at this time no war to prosecute. It is
tot her policy to make aggrpsijtiii on any State or people,

Congress »t Montgomery, pa-sed through here. On
the arrival of the ears, they were greeted by mi en
thusiastic crowd, who, after giving three cheer* for Old
Virginia, called for them In response Mr. Brock
enbrough came forward. He is a fine looking specimen
of the Virgil.i* gentleman. He said the people of his
State had been greatly distracted among themselves on
the i setting subject of secession ; but to-day. thank
God! she was a unit—moved by cno pulsation; and
every throb of her great heart was for the rights ot the
South ; that every man and every dollar within her bor
ders would be frc»ly given, as iu the days of the Revo
lution, to sustain our holy and just ciote, and resist the
tyranny of the Abolition vandals who now seek to dese
crate our sacred soil, aud take away our liberties. He
said that Virgiuia did not shrink Irom the conflict; that
sho had men enough whose hearts were fiilad with pa
triotic ardor to drive back cur iavaders ; she only need
ed guns, powder and shot. He said her caute was our
cause—her rights our rights—we were one people—
i leatical in views, pursuits, interests, education, religion
aud the history of the Past; and that one destiny await
ed us. Let us, said he, meet this day as hi comes the
de.cendiuts of the I.ees, the Carrolls, the Henrys, Ac.;
and even if the border cities of his State should be laid
waste, and her fields bligbted by the foul Head of a
vandal foe, the spirit of her people was unconquerable.
He retired amidst loud applause from the large and
appreciative audience.
Mr. Staples then came forward. He is a fresh, bright,
game-looki:g man. For about thirty minutes he elec
trified the crowd with the fire of his burning eloqueace.
No synopsis that we could possibly give would do any
sort ofjusticc, and we forbear making the attempt.
When he retired, Dr. Gibbs, the celebrated surgeon
of Charles'ou, came out aud give an account of his re
cent mission to Virginia from South Carolina. He gave
a glowing account of the enthu-ia-un and spirit of the
p-ople all through the interior of North Carolina and
Virginia ; he also referred to the battle of Sumter—the
character of the victory—that it w.ia entirely bloodless
except au accident which killed and wounded ouly teotti
of Anderson's men—one for each of the li on teted d
S’a ca. He elo.*ed as the train started oil’ amidst the
shouts of the enthusiastic multitude.

LETTER FROM BALTIMORE.
Correspondence of the Alexandria Oizette.
Bsltimori, May 7, HOI —It is difficult to believe
what is reported to be the fixed aud determined purpose
of the North, and particularly tbe New England Slates,
now that hostilities are commenced, in r.gatd to the
South and its institutions. Letters from tbe North to
hou-cs of big): commercial standing here have be. n re
ceived, urging them to close up their business and to re
turn to tbe plsct s of their nativity, assuring them that
tbe purpose indicated is tbe fixed programme of the
North. The first step seems to be to s cure all import
ant poi its South. Virgii.ix, according to there state
ments, is fir-t to be beht in sutj ction to the Federal Gov
ernment at Washington. She is to be secured by supe
rior forces, both by sea and LlJ. Richmond city is to
be reduced iu the accomplishment of the designs now
ou foot to bring tbe South to terms. Norfolk is to be
occupied, and the Navy yard at Portsmouth is to be re
possessed. Kor the transportation of troops Irom the
vVtsc it is confidently assorted that the Baltimore and
Ohio ra lro.d, from Wheeling to Baltimore city, will soon
be iu pot session of Federal troops, sad that then the at
t ick ou Virginia will be quick aud piwerfui, on or before
the 2nd instant, the day the Secistiou act is to *c
submitted to the people. It is to be observed that
the concentration of the troops is inaiuly towards Vir
ginia.

AND NELSON.
Bristol, Tsnn , May 7
Johnson and Nelson, on approaching Blouutville, were
met by a deputation ol citizens, who presented them the
note of the Coniiii'tuc ol Forty-Two. They tesponded
that it a majority of the meeting did not wish to hear them,
they would not it.theta speech upon them. Whereupon,
the vote was again taken upon the question of permit
ting them to speak. Trie meeting naa composed of fif
teen hundred perrons Five p-rsors voted to bear th-m,
three o| tin tn came up on the train with Johnson and
Kelson, ami w.ro ci ixen* ol Carter county. Finding
such an overnhiimiug majority against Until, they con

As IscinrsT at thr Orphan Hoi sk—A friend while
on a \i-it to this noble institution ou Tuesday afternoon,
relates the following pleasing and striking incident:
The faithful and devoted Principal, whose whole «tl'ort*
.arc nude in behalf ol this good work, had asked a num
ber of the children to write the text ol Seripturpeach had
committed to memory, anl when it came to the turn of
one boy, he rose, and with a countenance beaming with
pleasure, he very emphatically enunciated I.-aUh, |:{J
Chapter, first part of nth verse :
“Say cr io the North give up, aud to the South keep
not back."
The Principal, the visitor, am! those present who un
derstood the happy hit ol patriotic ardor of our youthful
friend, were much njuusod at it.—Cbarlttlon Courier.

the “Potitoti*c Minute Men,’’—about ’five hundred
strong—arrived in this city, yesterday, at.d, together
with the companies which aftiveij Wednesday, composed
the Second Regimen*, o! Mississippi. They are under the
coniinaud of Col Faulkner, all of them well armed, and
are composed of the *smn kind of brave men who d:d

Rkecihcr ITcmi in £muv.—Yesterday morning a
figure was seen s'.tu.ig i p across Hudson Avenue, near
John street, attached to which was a card, aud cu it
w:i:ten, “Henry Wa<d lieecher, the man who has done
mi. st to cause our pr»-cnt troubles.” lu one hand ti e

cut the t lligy down nod burned it.— Brooklyn Arts*.
Mr. Schott, of Nashville, Tenn., is now busily engaged
in the manufacture of percussion caps. The “Guz tte”
learns that arrangement* have been perfected by which

This will keep the Southern army supplied lor some time
