We have to day to perform the highest duties of the journalist. It is to combat ] dangerous errors, illusions and panics in ] *the public mind?to keep cool and hold on < to reason as a guide, while excitement and i apprehension are doing their fearful work i out of doors, and scattering the senses of 1 those who ought to be sensible men, liSeso J many timid hares. We have spoken else- I where of the food^panic as of a class with i the powdefpanic, the arms panic, and the < salt panic of former epochs of the war.? .< The gold panic is one of the last haliuoina- < tions of the times. The currency questiou ' is vital to us; it is our weak point, beoause i it is sensitive as an exposed nerve, and most t inviting to the operations of speculators at 1 home, and enemies at home and abroad.? 1 - - ? * < Timid men among tfte people are rne reaay dupes of these operators. It becomes every man of sense and motive, who loves the cause and his country, to fight the evil manfully. It is telegraphed from Richmond, "Advance in gold.! Exodus of foreigners!? Gold has risen in Richmond to 400, and Bank notes to, 60 premium." The exodus of foreigners, as a cause of the-rise, is a fable. It might temporarily affect that market, but there is no exodus of foreigners here to account for the flatter on St. Francis and St. Michael streets. Can any man perceive any rational cause in the present condition of our military affairs, why Confederate currency should suddenly jump down 1G0? If Richmond or Charleston had been taken, or Vickshnrt* redueed. the reason would be clear o / _ , enough. But it comes when there is no 1 defeat or series of defeats, of our arms to 8 dampen the hopes of ultimate triumph, and 8 when everything looks more favorable for ^ us than at any period of the war. No man I with a magnifying glass, can discover any 1 single reason why Confederate notes to-day 8 is not worth just as much as it was jester- I day. Yet, upon a breath of a report, a 8 vapor of suspicion of evil, lots of people 8 arc, while we write, ruoning to the broker's \ offices, eager to exchange their paper for gold at any price They verify the maxim, 8 "A fool and his money is soon parted."? * To morrow, the wind may sit in a different quarter. The wireworkers, having suooeed- ' ed in bagging a sufficient lot of dupes, may | tind it convenient to let up the snare, and 1 a good piece of news may come aloug to * justify an advance in Confederate paper.? J Then these dupes who bought at 400 will 1 begin to think they had been too easily ^ soared, and come back to sell again at 300. 1 One thing is worthy of remark, and we I commend it to the timid patriot who is the y possessor of Confederate money. It is, s that it takes two to make a bargain, and ( when he can sell his paper, there must needs 1 be a buyer. Now, it is as good in his hands ^ as in those of the buyer, and the buyer is * the smartest and sharpest hand in the 1 bargain. 1 There are no more dangerous enemies to C our cause than these timid possessors of | Confederate money. Most of them have made it out of the war and out of the derangements in prices and currency occasion- i ed by the war. They are now using their gains to weaken the general oause, to strike a blow at public credit and public confi- c deuce. The alarm they create by the misuse of their illgotten wealth is more dan- ? gerous to the cause than the fury of our t enemies and thyir countless armies. It is $ in their powec to conquer us when Linooln r cannot do it, with all his vast Dictatorial x powers. And some times we think we see ( the hands of our own wily and bitter foes t in their attacks upon our currency., it ^ would be a scheme worthy of the cuuDiDg ^ brain of the Machiavellian Seward. He t and his brother Yankees are a money under- t standing people. They know what an ele- c ment of evil a disorganized currency is? worse thau a disorganized army. They j know both by a bitter experience. Having s failed to disorganize our noble armies, (and t they never have been in suoh splendid fighting condition since the war began) may j they not be trying our currency ? General ( Biagg's army left in Tennessee and Ken- j tucky several millions of Confederate dollars. It is no great stretch of the imagina- j tiou to suppose that Seward may have or- j dered them to Richmond by agents instructed to invest them in gold at 300 premium, ( the 350 premium, then 400, and so on, at any premium, until they run up gold to 5j ! ^ j G, 7, 8 or 10 for one. A panio is the con- ] | sequeuce, and at a cost of half a million of , dollars, Seward effects the ruin of our finances. ^ If Lincoln is not doing this, it is certain- | ly being done by speculating sharpers on ' one side, and timid fools, and, in a patriotlo I sense, vile knaves on the other. The rem- ! udy is in the public?in its courage and i nerve, its determination to stand by the i credit of the Government, to sink or swim 1 with it, and its frowning down the cowardly I ! herd who do not hesitate to jeopard the i cause of a nation, and set at naught all the 1 precious blood and Godlike heroism which < has been expended in it, in order to save j i ?tnlfi*TT rJnllora IMrorA 1Q nr\ I I | men vna auu jsuawj uwuuiu. **, ?w ; I cause for this alarm. It is of the very esi senco of a panic. Our prospects were ! never brighter, our success is certain, (for I its only real enemies are the engrossers and j the panic makers), and with sucoess the inexhaustible resources of the richestcountry in productions on the habitable globe, i are ample to pay all the debts of tho war. Our people want faith, constancy and courage. Their brethren in the armies have set them noble examples of it. With heroes in the field, for God's sake let us n6t show ourselves cowards and time-servers in the walks of civil and political life. Mob ile A dvertiscr a nd Reg ister. The Chattanooga Rebel says : We ( must quit talkingabout receiving the West- , em folks "with open arms," until they j cease to approach us with loaded ones.? , Sensible. i Oar Greatest Danger. f The North is preparing for another desperate attempt to subjugate the South. If Lincoln succeeds in harmonizing the discordant elements among her people (and it is wiser that we should act upon the preemption that he will), the war is to be waged with intenser fury than ever bfefore. Larger armies and more formidable navies ;han we have yet seen are to be brought igainst us, and every effort which ingenuity can suggest, which malice can invent, or energy can put forth, is to be made for the complete overthrow of the Confederacy.? rhe same determined hearts and strong irms which, under a kind Providence, have :hu8 far defended our liberties, can again aurl back upon the JNorth tbe invading hosts which are to be marched against as. Dobfident in oar cause and the coarage of )ar people, all >these preparations for oar daughter do not dismay as. And yet we ire in danger; not from Northern bayonets >r iron olads, but from the mistaken policy jr cupidity of our own people. The brave nen who have left oar firesides and who low stand to their arms in the tented field, san and will take care of the myrmidons vhich Linooln sends to desolate oar land i .hey will do their duty, but those of us who amain at home have a duty to perform vhich is not less imperative or important, ind our oause is in danger because of our 'ailure to be as faithful as our soldiers in he performance of the part which we have u act in securing our independence. What s our duty ? To feed our soldiers and pro- . )ide for the families which they left behind hem. If we will do this we need have no 'ear about the army. Our brothers, sons ind husbands who are in the field will fight ill our battles and win all our victories if ve will make bread for them and the deicndeut loved ones w]iom they have enrusted to us. Shall we fail ? As certainly is we are tempted, by the hope of gain, to ilant cotton, we shall; as certainly as we ire induced by patriotism to plant corn we ihall not. Here, here at home, is our danger, and not where the battle lowers. We tremble when we think of the oon x. e - r..:i i lequences 10 our cauitu iruuj u lunuru iu nake an abundant provision crop this year. SVho can bear to contemplate the thought hat our armies may have to be disbanded or want of food? Who that has a heart n him can endure the thought that a Con'ederate soldier is pinched by hunger, or bat a soldier's wife suffers for bread, when t is iu his power to contribute to their reief. Planters of the South, these brave nen and their wives and their little ones ook to you for food. Shall they look in rain ? You are worse than a slave if you mswerYea; you-.jvill hejp to make your sountry free if you answer Nay. But how ire you to feed them if you raise Cotton ? Do not endeavor to satisfy your conscience >y saying "my small contributions will anount to nothing." Every man must do lis duty, and these small contributions frooj. iach will suffice for all our wants. Cut^ lown your cotton crops to just land enough o make your seed, and devote every acre 0 provisions.?Spirit of the South, i. Servile Insurrection in South Caro-. lina Meditated by the Yankees. The New York Tribune, in its editorial solumn, says : "We have from our special correspondent it Port Royal the startling announcement hat a foroe of 5,000 negroes, led by whites ind supported by regular troops, is just eady to enter one of the most densely populated districts in the Department of South Carolina, in order to summon it* emancipaed blacks to arms. Communications have >een established with the negroes, and they vait only for the appearance of the liberaing'force to springto arms and rally under he National flag. Sudden and irresistible is an avalanche, this blow will fall where jrepiration and defence are alike Impossi)le. The Republic is at length about to itiiko at the heart of the Rebellion, and he Proclamation of Freedom, hated and lerided by every enemy to the Nation, shall oe heard in the trumpet tones on the planations of Carolina, and cohoed on the oattle-fleld by tho oannon's opening roar." The following extract from the Hilton Head correspondence of the same journal, s the intelligence referred to: "For some weeks preparations for a foray loon an extensive scale into some of tho most thickly populated districts of one of the throe States comprised in the Department of the South, have been in progress with the greatest possible secrecy. Few persons within our lines are aware of the project even at this time, when orders to begin the movement are about to be giveo. The plan is to surprise the rebels, not with the phantom, but the reality of servile insurrection, by the sudden appearance in irms, in the region selected, of a body of no less than 5,000 negroes, properly led by whites, and supported by regular troops.? Communication has been opened and kept up for sometime by trustworthy contrabands with the bondmen of the chosen field of operations, and they know when the liberating host will appear, and aro roady to rise in thousands and swell it to a wave so l . .i_ _ . ;. *11 k-.il. ?k-u: J migniy load it wm sweepuum reueniuu uuu i slavery out of existence wherever it may ! roll.

Constitutionalist. Official Orders. ' Adjutant General Cooper, of the Confederate States army, has issued the following important General order: I. Any employee of a Government establishment . who shall leave sach employment, shall not he received at aoy other Government establishment, or by any contractor under t|pe Government, unless he exhibits a discharge from the employment which be leaves. II. Any contractor under the Government who^ball employ any worfcmen leaving, without proper-discharge, a Government establishment or the employment of another contractor under the Government 1 shall be notified at once that the detailed ' men and conscripts in his employment be rotnmorl frt fchi?ir nrnnar nffiflera nnon re r- -r-- -r port of the facts to the Chief of Ordnance. III. The orders heretofore given are repeated, that conscripts or detailed men leaving their employment without written permission shall be reported to the nearest enrolling officer to be tried and punished as deserters. In consequence of numerous applications made by various persons to the War "Department, it is obvious that some misconception in regard to the instructions of the Secretary of War in relation to tbe impress, ment of supplies must exist on the part of the people or that tbe agents of tbe Government have violated their instructions; now, therefore, for the purpose of removing such misebneeption, and to prevent %ny .violation of those instructions, it is hereby ordered, I. That no offioer of the Government shall, under any circumstances whatever, ! impress the supplies which a party has for his o^^mgumption or that of his family, -J employees or slaves. IL That no officer shall, at any time, unless specially ordered so to do, by a General commanding, in a case of exigency, impress supplies which are on their way to market for sale on arrival. III. These orders were included in the instructions originally issued in relation to impressment by the Secretary of War, and the officers exercising such authority are again notified that "any one acting without or beyond" the authority given in those instructions will be held strictly responsible. IV. Wheu non commissioned officers, musicians or privates entitled to furloughs under the act of December 11, 1861, or that of April 10, 1862, have died, or may hereafter die, before the receipt thereof, their personal representatives shall be allowed the commutation value of transportation from the point where such parties die to their homes and back. V. Wben non commissioned officers, musicians or privates, entitled under either of the preceding acts to a furlough, shall have been, or may hereafter be, promoted to the rank of commissioned officers, prior to tho receipt thereof, they shall be allowed the same commutation as is provided in the previous paragraph, or,, when they go on lcSve, the transportation in kind at their option. VI. Claims arising under Paragraph I will be settled by the 2d Auditor, those under paragraph II by officers of the Quartermaster's Department. In the latter olass, the facts must be attested by the certificate of the commanding officer of the regiment to which the claimant belonged at the datj of bis promotion.. Northern Pictorial Papers! By a reoent arrival from Nassau, the Wilmington Journal has a bundle of late New York pictorial sheets, embracing Frauk Leslie, of February 21, and March 7, and Harper's Weekly, of February 28 Harper's is decidedly venomous, bitter and unrelenting. Its first page picture is a likeness of General Hooker, and its last page has a picture entitled "The Copperhead Party?in favor of a vigorous prosecution of peace." "The Copperhead Party," be it understood, is the elegant appellation given by the Abolitionists to all opposed to the usurpations of Abe Lincoln.? For instance, Clement L. Vallandigbara is stigmatized by Harper n9 the chief of copperheads. Tho peace Democrats are caricatured under the semblance of copperhead snakes with human heads and Quaker hats, making an attack on a slanky-looking fe- 1 male, innooent of crinoline, supposed to renresent Columbia, who holds ont a'shield ; "*r ; / marked "Union." To show the animus of Harper, we shall extract a short paragraph from an editorial artiole headed "Copperheadism," as follows: "We shall not waste time in arguing with the copperheads. Men who are capable of justifying the rebels and espousing their canse when the blood of some member of almost every.Northern family red-1 dens Southern soil, and the bones of Nor-! thern soldiers are worn as orAments by Southern women, are not likely to be convinced by argument, or to bo pervious to anything short of a bayonet thrust." This is rioh, especially the style of female ornaments prevalent at the South.? And yet this stuff will have its believers, although, of course, its writer is not to be classed among them. Harper also devotes considerable space in the way of pictares and letter press to the new negro regiments. All the negroes appear in Harper with the features of white men, but with rather a dark color. Frank Leslie, on the contrary, gives the Nativo Guards in Louisiana, just as they are, certainly without flattery, ma king them look as purely Afrioan as may bo. The comio picture on the last page of one of the Leslie's is entitled "The Bad Bird and the Mudsill/' and represents old j Abe Btuok in the mud up to his waist,1 while Jeff. Davis, in the form of a bird, sits j cosily on his nest marked "Richmond," and langhs at Abe, whp is made to say? "Ah, you may laugh?but it it wern't for | this mud, I'd soon fetoh you out of that." j AST A discovery of great value to Texas has lately been made and patented by Dr. Parks, of Guadalupe County. It is in ef. feet', that the wood of the MeaquUe tree is as efficaoions in its tanning as the 6am Catachu of the West Indies. It is stated that a hide properly prepare^ can be tan-, o ned by it in twenty-four hoars; and this ii tree is one of the forest growth in the best J cattle ooantry in the Empire State. In the t< future, therefore, Texas can readily export b leather, instead of hides; and tanners, of e whom there are bat few in that country, ii will readily multiply. d Thadurrency Act.

Provides for the publication of the Act. t! p A Good Move. t, It ha3 been suggested in Augusta and n Atlanta to form Societies to protqpt the ti Soldiers' families from the necessity of pur- fc chasing from extortioners, by employing 0 volunteer capital, either as a gift or loan to 0 the Society. The idfc^has been well re- w ceived in many places, and should be adop- r, ted in every town. We think the Comma- a sioners of the Soldiers' Familiesv for this tl District, should see to it, that the price of tl corn should be given out at $2.00. This can be done with the aid of private capital, o, If something of this kind is not done soon, n the price of corn during the summer may ]( advance to $5.00. In many places corn tl is now selling for more than double this g sum. 1 Many families were disappointed last D week in getting corn from the Commission- p era, and were obliged to borrow money and tl pay ?2.50 per bushel, and a whole day con- a snmed in finding corn, getting it to mill f| and carrying it home. ItiWoald be a great w convenience to the families for foe Com- j missioners to have coro that they ocold tell r, at cost to Soldiers' families who have drawn a their proportion and still not supplied to t< the amount of their wants. It would save ti the time of running about with a little poke 8j from one mill to another to get a bushel of ti corn. Many are obliged to do this now, i( and have done it for years, but the times 0 are now too hard for a poor business like ^ that to be carried on. Any one that can tl carry a bushel of corn to mill, should be n engaged in' a crop?it is important to the g, public interests of the country that they r should bo thus employed for themselves or tJ others. This will be the best remedy for Sj hard times w# can suggest. The labors of tl summer will give us all abundance in the p fall season, and those who are not provident f( enough to provide-for such times as we have v fallen upon, must expect to experience all a the disappointment there is to be found in a lazy indolent life. It will be mortifying, indeed, after the experience of two years, a there should be aDy found in Spartanburg is pistriot, who will not make a crop for them- b selves, or hire out, and aid in making one c for somebody elso. c Our principal idea in making these sug- a gestions, is to gather up all stragglers at f home, and put them to work, and let the f Commissioners provide for destitute families o the best they can while the orop is grow- o ing.? Carolina Spartan. r The Injunction granted by Judgefyi Lyons. It was stated in tbe telegraphic colaumf yestersday's Express, that in the Husfcags Court of lliohmond city on Tuesday, adge Lyons delivered his decision relative o tbe - impressment of a quantity of flour elonging to William B. Isaacs, and grant-' A d the injunction asked for. The follow-. * ag is a brief abstraot of the decision renorcJ: On the 7th of March, 1863, Wm. B. saacs presented his :bill, statiog thach^ 'as the owner of 960 barrels of Superfine nd Extra Superfine dour, which he had nrohased in Outober, for about the suthof^ 22,000, and on which .he onsiderahle expense in dra$age, storage, sc., and that be had been informed that lajor .John H. Claiborne, acting as was Jleged, uoder, the orders of the Secretary f Wnr. Iwd mvnn nnt.inn tn Tinnlnn. are & Co., ia whose warehouse the flour ras stored, that he had impressed the same or the use of the Confederate Government nd that the Government wojxld allow him i payment 817.50 per barrel for the Suerfine, and 819.50 for the Extra Superne, being nearly $3,000 less than he paid )r it, and nearly $12 per barrel less than be market price in Richmond. The in* motion was prayed for to prevent the reiovaI of the floor, until just compensation bould be made, or until some provision bould be made for ascertaining what is ist compensation for the floor. The Judge was of the opinion that oner the Constitution of the Confederate tales, no impressments of private property cold be made, unless absolutely demandetf - ; y public exigency, for the uatf of the army, nd it bad been plainly shown that ia the resent case no such exigency existed p lat Congress, in whom, resides the power, f eminent domain, so far as the Confederte Government is concerned, has no rigHE) authorize the taking of private property dthout providing just compensation there* >r, and that it could not be successfully out ended, in the absence of* such legislaon, that an Executive officer could do it, r decide when the necessity might exist, r fix the amount of compensation to be aid. ' After the seizure of the flour, Isaacs ould not avail himself of the-reWdy of ait ctioQ for trespass against Claiborne, beause the latter is an officer in the military ervieo of the Confederate States, aniw^ ^ Qcb, exempt from arrest under civil'proess. The remedy of Isaacs was oot there3re complete and adequate at lawj irrepar* ble injury to him might be the oonsenence of a refusal to grant injunction, rhich was, in the opinion'of the Judge, be only complete and effectual remedy, and ir that reason ought to be grau>d..
