C., April 24, 1862. J The following resolutions were adopted by the Governor and Council, and were ordered to be published: The Congress of too Confederate States of America having passed an Act entitled uAn Act to Further Provide for the Public Defence,'' approved April ?, 1862, which authorizes the President to call out and place in the military service of the Confederate States for three years, unless the war shall have been sooner ended, all wlpte men who are residents of the Confederate States between the ages of eighteen (18) and thirty-five (35) except those exempt by law, the Governor and Council, as representing the authority ofthe State, are induced to waive, for the present, all objections to the measure, - and to give it a cheerful and energetic support, upon the ground of imperious public necessity. The operation of the Act aforesaid takes all the material of armies between the ages mentioned from the control of the State, whether for active duty in the field or for internal and police defence. To meet this new condition of things it becomes necessary that the State shall adopt further measures to organize its forces aud provide for its defence. Therefore, be it 1. Resolved, That a State Reserve Force ' shall be organized as promptly as practicable, to consist of two corps. 2. That the first corps shall embrace all male citizens of this State between the ages ot thirty- j live (35) and fitly (50) yearn, wIiohIihII be held I for active service wherever required by the State authorities, and bo still subject to the performance of patrol and police duty until c^jled into active service. 3. That the second corps shall embrace all those'persons who'are by law exempted from ordinary militia duty, all alien residents, and all male citizens between the ages of sixteen (16) and eighteen (18) and fifty (60) and sixtyfive (65) years, who shall be held for the performance of patrol duty and for the internal defence of the State when required. 4. That to effect the organization of the several corps of reserves, it shall be the duty . A J? ? ? 1 T . ? - oi me acijuumi ana inspector-ijcnerHi to cause a prompt and accurate enrollment of all persons embraced within the two classes specified, as well as those embraced in the said Act of Congress, specifying in each case on the roll with the names the exemptions, if any, and the causes and evidences thereof; the age, and the dtstricf; parish, regiment and heat company within which the persons respectively may reside. And lor this purpose the Adjutant and Inspector-General shall employ tl c agencies provided in the first resolution adopted by the Governor and Council on the 0th of March 1862, to comply with the requisition made by the Secretary of War for five regiments from this State; and he will use such other instrumentalities as he may deem proper.

SEED OATS FOR SALE AT THE "OLD COR?er," by E. W. BONNKY. February'28- * V" ! ; Ft em (h? Charlttton Mercury. It Charleston to bo tavedf To the Editor of the Charleston Mercury: The Mercury asks this question, and asserts that, with 2,000 more laborers for four weeks, the city conld be saved. If the people could but be convinced that anybody was in earnest about it, and that Charleston?not the mere bricks and mortar but the site?where commerce has her seat, and history has been made in other days?the place where, more than in any other equal area, the pledge of Carolina's honor is bestowed?that this Charleston is to be defended to the last extremity; not two thousand, but ten thousand laborers could certainly be had. Feeling thus, there are many to whom the aIqliArata fnrhfixatimia <? tha t.f PKarlua. vuwv/wi i?vv ivi viuvnviuuo *rt *(?v r vi v/?in? ton are simply a grievance and a provocation * they are a gnarartee to onr enemies that when they have eutered by the front door (the bar-, bor) they shall have the best means of closing the back door against us, at cur expense. Nobody doubts that the city ought to be defended ; but there is only one way of proving that it will bo?that is, tending away the women and children. Let the Governor and Courcil order away the families of the wealthy; let them take a rough but large estimate of the poor families; let them give notice to every District which is accessible by railroad, through the Soldiers1 Board of Relief, that so many families will be sent them in so many da}s, to be sheltered and fed, that pole houses must be built and food found for tliem. Let this pledge be given, that our generals shall not be besieged, in the critical moment, by weeping women and their babes; and we shall know that there is an object before us, worthy the costliest sacrifices. And if this is not done?if our rulers have not the moral courage, and are not ripe for heroic emergencies?then, in the name of common sense and the country, pour a little nitric acid into your guns, mine the forteabove all, level your field works?send our armies to Virginia or Tennessee, where we know ( some fighting is to l>e done. We know the question is asked, as though it were unanswerable : 44 Where is tbo wisdom of doing the enemy's work for him ?" And : 44 If we destroy the city, what do we gain by defending the desolated site f" We reply ; that destruction, which weuld be a crime if it were not necessary, becomes heroic when it nullifies a victory. Let everything be preserved, of course, while it can be defended* But bow easily those questions can be retorted! Where is the wisdom of furnishing ready-built cities to our worst enemies?the very thing they covet? And if wc destroy the city, what will the vandals gain by taking the cmp ty site ? Is there no advantage in making one harbor absolutely impregnable, and thus maintaining a communication with the world ? Or, suppose wc lose it after all, if the enemy should attempt to hold the ground, is there nothing in having made it untenable, by reason of the sickness the ruins would breed f Nothing in the proof that there is desperate earnestness somewhere in the Confederacy? In a word, then, preserve every street, and lane, and shed, while it can be defended, but send off, at once, those who will render decisive impossible. Thus you will convince all?friend and foe, and idle lookers-on?that we are locked together in a pcrfcot covenant to conquer or perish together. Thus you will arouse the spirit of the State, exercise the jealousy and suspicion that 60 readily spring amid disasters, and show that the gage is thrown down in Charleston, that the utmost chivalry of the whole people must redeem. 1 am, Sir, Ac., A.

I Late?t from New OrlwiH. ' Richmond, May 4.?Authentic information has been received here by telegraph from New Orleans, that the garrison at Fort Jackson had ... i . * . *.. ?.i ?i ? mourned ana spisea some or me guns, wncn General Duncan surrendered. The Louisiana, which was found to be unmanageable, was at Fort St. Philip, anchored as a footing battery. She received one of the enemy's heavy broad* sides at the distance of thirty feet, without sustaining any injnry. She was then blown up by Commander Mclntof b, who bad his arm and leg torn off by the cxploscon.?About thii* teen of the enemy's vessels cam? up before the surrencer of tho forts. Among them was. the Brooklyn and three other vessels of her class, The eneiny is believed to be in full posse&sion of the city. Previous to tbe surrender, the French Commander of the Militarie gave notice to the enemy that he would require sixty days notice to remove French citizens, in case a bombardment wns to take place. The city is now quiet, though great excitement prevails. The DeoDle are thorouchlv Ioval to the South. * * C* ? tf ? All the cotton and shipping at New Orleans and Caton Rongo has been burned. Tbe cotton thus destroyed amounts to 32,000 bales. How the Yankee Soldiers Behave f?t a "Female Rebel's" House. A Yankee corresdondent says: Mrs. Farrenhold has deserted her house, and; the soldiers have frken complete possession.? Her secession proclivities have made her what she is?a ruined woman. Her slaves say they will not be hired out. She has no land to cultivate, Her husband is in the rebel ranks and she a wanderer. Many say she is a spy, left here purposely by the enemy to gather information.?She is somewhat of the "strong-minded" sort. We popped into her mansion this morning, and found a score of soldiers making "Johnny Cakes," at the parlor fire-place, using green Venetian shutters for fuel. On the walls the soldiers have scribbled all sorts of ^devices?many of them quite meritorious in the way of drawing. Some are qnite comical and full of point. One represent* a mule, and is marked "Government beef." Another is a Zouave sitting on the ground, with a square biscuit in his hand, underlined "one square meal a day." Many of the soldiers have written their names, and those belonging to the fire companies hnve added the name of their favo%. ito "machine." The "Knickerbocker" Fire Company, of New York, the "Weccacoe" Engine, of Philadelphia, &c., appear in large cap a - I 1 .1. uai icuers. The Fight at Cumberland Gap. Our information from Cumberland Gap it . that the Federals, in laige force, commenced an attack about noon on Tuesday. Tbey were gallantly received by our forces, snd three times repulsed. In the last attack we learn that they chargod up to the breastwork; of the fortifications. Tbe enemy's loss 180 killed andi about 400 wounded. Our loss was 17- killed, and about 80 wounded. The last repulse was an cffecinal one, and sent the Fedrraisr to use one of their own phrases, "skedadling." They had not, at our last account, renewed the: attack. Gen. Stevenson, who has command of the forces at the Gap, has proved himself the man for the place; and, we learn, possesses the entire confidence of our troops. The fortifications have beeil approved by all experienced military men who have examined them; and, as the enemy's gunboats are not likely to ascend the Cumberland Mountains, we may hope that thir victory?by no means an unimportant one? ' is not the last that will be achieved by the heroic band who have so long and gallantly 'de fended that post, barring the d'?or of East Tennessee and Sonrh western Virginia against tit hosts of Lincoln invaders. i . i 7* i ??
