The Spirit with which the North Wages
? Yankee poper-even the "West Chester
... (New York) Jt?ersonian-confesses to the
atrocious spirit of extermination with which
the North wages this war. tt says :'
Five minutes conversation with an aboli
tionist will reveal to you the fact that he con
ceives that the people of the North actually
own the people of th* South, and that it is
nothing short of the most unparalleled pre
sumption for them to suppose thaTthey have
any right to houses, land or estate, much
less to that of self government. u These med'
are so intractable," say they, "so bitter, de
termined, that there will be no living with
them in the future. We must exterminate
them and seize their property."
This highly humaue and christian conclu
sion is reached with the mostperfect coolness
and composure. Of couise, why should it
not be so? Are we not more civilized than
they? Are we not more intelligent? Do j
w? not exceed them in all the humane and
gentler virtues ? lu a word, are we not the
saints and does not the world belong to the
saints ? Surely it does. Ergo, the South
belongs to us, and long a3 wo can print green
backs and buy people to do our fighting for
ns-, we will keep up this war of extermination.
We do not expect to conquer thom, hut we
have two orthree to their one and with gen
erals who are willing to turn wholesale butch
ers, we can *' wipe them out,'' in the expres
sive language used on Sherman's raid.
This is tire programme now adopted. The
war is one simply for extermination. It is
waged for that purpose. The idea of being
able to conquer the South has long since been
abandoned. It is simply a cold, cruel war
of bitter extermination. There is not even
one spark of generosity to soften its composi
tion of malignity, cruelty and slaughter.
Over the beads of the men fighting more
bravely than men ever fought, hangs the vilo
threat of negro equality, and the-conlbcation
of all their property, and yet the propIe pro
fess to wonder why they are so bitter I This
is like knocking a man down, beating him
.nearly to death, stealing his clothes and leav
iug him by the roadside in a pitiless storm,
and then wondering why he does not love and
embrace us. If these people who are urg
ing on this crusade ef slaughter would sit
down calmly for five minutes and ask them
selves how they would like the same mea
sure meted out to them, they could not de-*
ceive themselves longer, unless as is most
likely, they wished to be deceived.

Northern Presidential Cauvas*.
Mr. Long, ef,Ohio, in a late speech before
his constituents, thus sums un the issue pre
sented to the people of thc United States in
thc approaching Presidential election :
The first step to bo taken is to declare for
peace. Let it be bold, manly, dignified, but
emphatic; so clear and comprehensive that
the commonest intellect cannot be mistaken.
Let it bea declaration as positive as the
Declaration of Independence, and let it be
signed ano" adhered to with as firm a deter
mination as actuated the signers of that in
strument, and the work is half done. Go to
the people in this election upon tko issue
war or peace; give them a free ballot, (and
t' they will determine to have if you will
g : them the issue of war or peace,) andi
I J no fear for the result. They are not
ling to yield up their liberty and Gecorne
slaves, they are not williug to see hundreds
upon hundreds ef thousands of their fellow
men slaughtered merely to gratify the desire
or perpetuate the power of a*y one man.
This-is the issue I desire to see. In the
Dame of alhthat is sacred is it not h'gh time
that this sanguinary and cruel folly should
be arrested ? Has reason entirely fled to
brutish beasts, and have the American peo
ple lost that sagacity and that intelligence for
which they were ouce distinguished among
thc nations ? Can it be possible that any
considerable portion bf them imagine that
any possible good can result.from the prose
cution of this war, and from further immola
tion before the bloody altar of Juggernaut ?
Do they not discover that in the vortex of
ruin which the war ha.i created thc material
prosperity and wealth is sinking along with
tbe proud American freedom which was once
our boast and our pride ?
From the administration of Mr. Lincoln no
Wisdom or common scn.-e can be expected.
It will continue to tread "in the downward
carter of folly and crime rn the hope ,-tb?t
upon the bloody car of revolution which is
crushing the masses to death, its chiefs eau
ride to positions of iinpcriul splendor and in
dividual greatness. In the dark vista of the
fu'ure there is not?me single ray of hope if
the blessed suu of peace does not soon as
cend the national horrisoir, and shed its efful
gent rays upon our land.
Do not, my fellow citizens, follow longer
this worse than wiil o' tho wisp of Southern
conquest ard subjugation, which is ?ea'ding
this country deeper and deeper into the slough
and mire of national degradation and ruin.
Let us be j ist and g?nerons. Let us stand
e Democratic principle, that ail just
ernmcnts derivo their powers from the
"ent of the governed. Though every thing
ls, let us have no other Union than
ed upon the consent of each and ev?
tate comprising it, and let us spurn with
infinite disgust and abhorrence the idea of a
Coufedecacy "pinnedtogether by bayonets"
and only sustained and upheld by arbitrary
coercion and despotic powers.

The Macon Telegraph of tho 3d, says:
This Yankee celebrity arrived here on Mon
day evening; accompanied by his stall" and es
I corted by a guard of Confederate cavalry. He
is a tall man, with light brown benni, and
dark hair. His femires are-regular, but
wore a dejected and haggard appearance. We
are informed that he feels very much humilia
ted at having surrendered to an inferior force,
but says his ??en were so demoralized and.
dispirited that they wouid noe fight. " He was
assigned to quarters at Camp. Oglethorpe,
where he will be abl? to reflect for a few days,
on the vicissitudes of fortune, and to regret
that he was mad enough to go so far irom
.- To Brigadier General Alfred Iverscn is the
country indebted for the dispersion and cap
ture of the most formidable raid that hascver
I been made in thi3 State. The battle pf Sun
shine Church, which resulted in the surrender
, ot Stoueman, was a decided success on his
part and does honor to Gen. Iverson. AU of
the enemy's artillery wai captured, and over
one thousand splendid Sharp's eight shooter
rifles, as well as a large number of horses.
In thc engagement our loss was not over
oue hundred in killed and wounded, while
that of the enemy must have exceeded two
hundred. Stoneman surrendered the entire
force, but a' large j>ortion dispersed in the
woods, and are now being captured and pur
sued by our cavalry. We have strong hopes
of capturing the entire force.
ARRIVAI OF THE RAIOERS.-Fivo hundred
of Stonemau'a raiders, captured by General
Iverson, arrived here on yesterday morning.
They appeared in good spirits, and did- not
look as if :hey bad been caught committing
their usual rascalities. They are a verygowd
looking body of men, and infirmed us that
they were picked out for the purpose of de
stroying our communications.
MOUE ot' TUE R'AIUKILH CAPTURED.-We
have been informed by a trustworthy person
that oOO more of the Yankee raiders were
captured on yesterday, and are on the march .
to this cit}'. Among them is a Colonel and a
Major, with several officers of inferior rauk.
We do not vouch for the above information,
but give it as coming from a reliable source.
Our cavalry is still pursuing the. dispersed
body of raiders, and we should not be sur
prised if every man is captured.
ANOTHER PARTY or RAIOERS CAPTURED.
We learn that a parly of raiders was cap
tured in Monroe on Thursday, ft is stated
that they numbered about five hundred, and
w^re probably' those who escaped from Gen.

were encamped at the time our troops came.

PRESIDENT DAVIS.-A considerable clamor
bas arisen against the President, in some
quarters, from persons who have not hesita
ted to charge him with negligence and in
competency'. However specious these charges
may seem in certajn cases, we would like to
know whero a citizen can bo found to fill his
plice? President Davis has won the un
qualified admiration- of the world for his
state tranship and judicious management of
the adairs of the nation in" the most trying
period to which it could be subject, and shall
we now gain ^ay this testimony, and declare
that our chosen l.tader hs.s abused the confi
dence with which he was intrusted? We
have always had a profound and abiding con
fidence in the firmness, earnestness, and wis
dom of the President. The Mobile Tribune
justly says of Mr. Davis :
He is morally and intellectually a grand
man ; and knowing thia, we are impatient of
censures which, we may suppose, arc unjust.
One can hardly realize the difficulty of his
position. No roan iriany tige has had heavier
responsibilities than he. Conscientious, pro
foundly earnest in his patriotism, it were im
possible tu find a motive for a neglect of du
ty or a perversion of good intentions to the
gratification of any individual prejudice, or
other unworthy purpose, unless it be assumed
that he is mentally incapable. Who will as
sert that, and attempt to prove it ?
. SAVING HER BACON.-We were told yes
terday of a circumstance by which an-old
lady saved her bacon, which, we think, should
be repeated to counterbalance some of the
" d&e tricks" of the Yankees whi%Ii wp sp
oft en hear of. ? ..
It uppcars that just before Grierson made
his way to West Point, considerable, alarm
preceded him throughout tho country where
he was expected to travel, and every person
did all he could to save bis valuable and
moveable property, to prevent it be&g sto
len. A certain old lady who repides only a
short distance from West Poi.;t, learning
that tho advance guard of the marauding
party, were advanciug, ard were within a
short distance of her house, was in great dit*
tresa as to what disposition bhe should make
of her bacon, as she had a largo quantity in
her smokehouse. Every bod}'about the place
was hiding away their valuables but the old
lady, who stood wringing her hands and cry
ing out,41 my conscience," "bless my soul,"
" wheie on the face of the yearth can 1 hide
my meat from these cursed Yankees*/"
The Yanks kovojn sight. On the instant
a brilliant idea struck the old lady, and she
sang out^) her son^Uj^u Jeenis, come hero
aud heip me '.hro?M Hfet into thc yard.''
And at it they wc3 KF-ng the yard with
the bacoD. In a TRBBo/r.ents the Yanks
made their appaarauce and dashed into the
yard. The WrJtttftr they saw, of course,
Was the meat. "An!"?exclaimed ene, "you
have got plenty of meat here ; the very thing
we want." Thc old lady being close by and
listening, replied, " Yeas, we have got plenty
of meat here, such as it is; and if'yer want it,
yer can have it and welcome, for I shan't
touch a mouthful long as I live ; for -this
morning them derneel rebel sogers'come hero
and took every bit of my meat, aud done
something with it, nnd flung it in the yard,
and thar it can Iny till it rots before I Cat it."
The Yankee took the hint-thought it was
poisoned--aud sho "saved her bacon."
It is a pity that more of the people did not
think of some moa us of keeping their meat.
B-?y* A St. Louis paper tells this: A man
andjwife were engaged in arranging for sepa
ration. The difficulty ol adjustment was the
baby. The^wiftj tearfully begged to be al
lowed to keep " the dear little fellow," while
the husband angrily rad persistently refused.
At length the wife, almost threw the child
into the husbands arms and exclaimed, "Take
him, I can soou have another.

RICHMOND, August ?1.
A special despatch to the Whig from Pe
tersburg says :
It having been ascertained that* the eneraj
were mining extensively in frontof Gracie's
brigade, on our centro, we determined tc
stop their operations by countermining.
Our culvert was -completed, and exploded
between six and seven o'clock, last evening,
blowing up the enemy's skirmish line and de
molishing: bis m in tis,."
The affair was a great success, completely
.frustrating the object of the enemy at that
point*, throwing the troops along his lines into
great confusion. .?t?
No infantry attack.was intended nor made
on our side.
Artillery firing along tba whole lines was
very rapid for the space of an hour.
A number of the euemy engaged in work

A few shells were tbrowu *iuto the city af
