Among these obstacles,' perhaps nine is greater than the idea w.iich has bee a sedulously inculcated by the designing advocates of discord for many years, that the people of the Northern and South ern sectlous hate each other #i4i inextinguishable enmity, and that thi j hatred is so deeply founded in the habits, tastes and opinions of the people that it can not be eradicated. Nothing has contributed more to keep up the resistance of the Southern people than the teachings of those who declared that the North was inspired with a feeling of en mity and revenge, so bitter that nothing would satisfy her people except the utter min of South ern homes—the desolation of Southern families, and the destruction of all that male life worth preserving. The passions kindled by the war, and the deeds of rapiue and violence on both sides to which the war lias given birth, have for a long time prevent ed us flora developing the real seutitnents of hu manity and kindness to which thousands will hap pily return now when the blood-red flames of the conflict are beginning to subside. We Teel sure that even the most embittered se cessionist will atknowledge that the conduct of the uiiiicu outra* oraewra ;iuu soiaiers tu aicnmurm na> been not only considerate and humane, but adapted to iuspire confidence and kindness in return. And with the prospect of returning peace, the senti ments of the poople of the North are beginning to appear in forms which ought to elicit correspond ing feelings. The prompt action of the Christian Commission in supplying all the destitute among us with food, certainly does not savor of a spirit of hatred and revenge. We have heard of various expressions of good feeling from many Northern communities, which will speedily be in untested, we are sure, in more substantial forms than mere words. When contrasted with the reckless spirit of de struction and disregard of private rignts and | r >p erty exhibited by the leaders of disunion even to the very hour of their linal flight from Virginia, these developments of kindness and sympathy from those who were lately reckoned as enemies of the South, will not fail to work a change in many minds. We earnestly exhort the people of the S >uth to dismiss rancor from their hea ts, te believe what is undoubtedly true, that thiir brethren of the North desire to live with tnem in tin bonds of peace, and to cultivate a spirit of conciliation a n 1 forbearance which will soon boar the richest tr lits. rPM£ duly of all true Virg'nlans is pcrfeitly ap pare it.
