THa CONFEDERATE .
WKDXESDAT, April 6, ; Proscription. It has teen a favorite theme with Mr. II old en, to charge President I.iv;s nnH his administration with rutldcs and vindictive, proscription in North Carolini 'i alt-'frp-t ion for original secessionists of all the civil and military uffkes, and the exclusion "f all who were not of this clasa. litt'm out of view, for the present, that if tbiihal lefn the rule, Mr.' Holden wpuld have been among the , first pffice-boldew, by a tin years ailvtcacy of secession, by his abandon men t of D inglas in. a night and hid support of Breckinridge, by his Tote for secession in convejiti n and his pledge of other msn and oinera dM'.ars until it should como down to bis turn' the last we say, putting all this aside for the nonce, we have always questioned th justice of the accusation ; and, as occasion :mv ro quire, are prepared to disprove i. Four instances fall under our immediate ob servation, f.r this disproof; First, on the re eomtaendatiou ef Gov. Vance, the important office of Coutr.tlling Quarter Master was be itjwel by the President npon Mapr Rtdhani; of whom it will not be preteudcJ that he was a friend of the administration, or an original secessionist. Very lately the post of Deposi tary at PitUWo was to be filled, and it was gi :en to Mr. John TI. Haughtoti, who was-as far from bcinnn original .-ece.ss:oni3t as Mr. IId den was near to it. At Oxford, Mr. Russell King-bury his lattly hi hpp' infed to the same positionf who is n ot o:dy n-t an oriuial, but so far the contrary thit we arc greatly misinformed if he wns nt one of-Mr. H olden' s most assured dis ciples in the l ite Convention agitation. A fourth, Mr. Win., Mason, (.f this place, for a long time lias been Commissioner of ti e Confederate Sta es. y appointment, we hear, r f Judge V'Z, who is a warm friend of the President, and nt ignorant of his policy. Now )fr. Mas mi's poetical affinities and ngiitit too active, an interference in political ait.itiou. Ve do ii. it-mean t- lin-1 f.tultwidi thee a poi ment. or by any man in rf means t ) question the hy;dty of either of the incn'nb eutf. Indeed, the fuct that eacli of the gentle men hasr in all probability, taken the oath c allejrlrtnee to the Corfvdff icy, would proclud'i such question by unless fjrtified by strir -. proof, fi? we.judge them by our ovrn sense houor. Oir object is simply to start a deuil of the. allegations Mr. Holden lias been in the habit oi' Making against the administration. .. Aud for further information, we would enquire what single civil nppointment Mr. Iloldcn has recommended, of a political adversary, for the last two years, or his party has made ? Rations We understand that many soldiers arriving in Rleigh from the West, are detained cvef ut night by some cause, and find themselves unable to draw 1 at ions. Hungry and fatigued, they are compelled to go about and rely on the liberality of the citizens for food to -at. linn the government no. rations of h.ol at this post ? If it has, is there any reason why an enlisted1 man should not be aide to draw his rations or is he enlisted to-etarce whi'c route We call this matter to ti e atten tion of the proper authorities.- Surireoti Gen eral Warren might furnish to Zix bitrtan some claim for usefulness, if he would give a pass ing thought to hungry soldiers o'et iiiud at ltalcigh. But then some of his precious now wholly eugaged iu chaperoning Govern t Vance from point to point, might bp ukeu up in a loss agreeable way. We have .never beard that .he Governor wao threatened with apoplexy or any other sudden malady,' that the chief of tho medical stall should be a neerssary atteudant upon all his movements. A Way-siHe Home near the depot, with bread and meat for the soldiers, would give Surgeon General Warren mcvo useful occupation. -lint if he catmot be enticed into such useful- ucss, by all means let some measure bo adopt ed by which the hungry soldurs can get their ritious, when held over in Rale.. Charity. This christian virtue is conm;- i. -led in tho ixtcred sciipturcs as chief among i igious du ties. All men are exhorted to f d !--w the Di vine piecept, md give unto tl.t poor, help the needy, eucoor the afflicted, visit ths pri soner aud thvi sick, and h3 charitable in all things. Iu tho present heavy hour of nation al affliction, it is meet and right most faith fully to observe aud practice this holy duty. The poor abound, necessitous and afflicted; the sick fill our hospitals, and appeal for our sympathy, our consolations and admin istration. The maimed and diseased of our own gallant defonders pine in anguish, of times, for want of nourishment and a kindly band to tend and minister to them. In them the christian, charitable heart will find am ple field for the display of benevolent sym pithy. We could but pity the sorrows of our own wonuded and prisoner, -when we have seen, the exquisite dainties poured in upon the yankee prisoners while in custody at Richmond, aud remember how many, alas, how many of our men get necer a taUe and, strange to say, in that' city of many eccentricities, there were to be found persona who so far misfook christian charity, that ihey heaped the good things upon the yan kees who were confiaed there, and never had eveu necessaries, for our own sick and wounded. We can readily understand how the Con federate prisoners at the North command a portion of sympathy among our enemies; for the yankee race is not all savage. There is among th?rn .some abiding places for hu- r.ntiprxthus are wetl uncrsbjod, and wouM no 9 uz in a tw brief and forcible xe niks.

If there are fom.d inn and womeu at the North who sympathize in ' this cause, ad minister to its atefeiiderr, we comprehend the duly end recognise; the be nevolent inspiration. But yankee pris-orers among us, are, with 6carce discrimination, of a different brecfl ; they are for the most part hirelings, bought w.th a price- to do nefari ous deds ; they get money for blood ; and ail ot them are the unrighteous instruments of an accursed and unholy r -.r, begun without provocation and waped against crnlv. ui' n with unmitigated atrocity. That we sIkuiM care for their :sick, and wounded, .tt-.d pri soners who fall iuto our bauds according to Ihe rule of rar, is a duty to he p-rtrmd; hut bf ot,d that-, we are ignorant of any nle J of charity, benevolence or religion, wtddi claims for tl ee aggressors any extended lib- cra'ity and we rre intlintd to thiuk that such inistAen" kind udness is a wron to otir ' own neonle, and iu n".ost cases finds is oil- i gin in a sccrtt hostility' to fjur cuo. from Charlotte, signed " (0.

A corrcs ! pondent ot the Montgomery Adcertistr fur- nishes the followiuu : With the Abolition army the Abolition Church advances upon our soil, pari passu. I quote from a letter that has run the blockade an item of gent ra! interest and significance. It develops a new feature iu the purposes of our enemies, and is" note- worthy as bearing an official comp'ex on : New Orleans, Feb. 21, 1804. As I know you arcj icletested for tho churches in. this city, I write. About the middle of January Bishop Ames arrived, and as his commission was different fio n what we all expected, it lias ended in his obtaining posession of alt tne Methodist Churches iu the city and supplying the pastorales. His order from tho Secretary of War was to tako charge of all churches " not suppliel by loyal pastors and appointed bv loyal .bishops. " Of course this ended the matter, and the mili tary requisition was complied with by trustees, tSrc. 4 I never had such strange emotions as on Sahbath, 24th, vfhen. for tho first time in my life, I was without freedom to Worship God. No other day of my life ever equalled it for unutterable sadness. Surely we arc touching ou some of the prophetic .times ot the Bible. ' ' , This Bishop Ames is from Indiana, and of the Methodist Episcopal Church North. About 6ix weeks since be " possess tl " and " occupied "in a like manner the Methodist Church in Memphis, ejecting a faithful pastor to make room for a reverend gentleman of Indianapolis. I suppose similar attentions have been paid to the churches of Vieks- burg, Natchez, Baton Kouge, and all inter- mediate points ; for, as none of the Bishops of the Methodist Episcopal Church South are " loyal, m the sense ot to is ecclesiastic mil itary commission, so none of their appoint -menu may stand before it. .,..

J GaxTLXKkii : I have been informed that an imprt ssion is sought to be made in certain quarters, that another candidate will be.brought out for the office of Governor in North Carolina at a future day, aud my name has been spoken of among others. It may be proper therefore for me to say, that ns long as the war continues, while able to do military duty, I do not intend to leave the field for ant civil titatian Kimrd ing Jov. Vance s public position cs riglit ou the gre,4 issue before the country, I think lie ought to VcoFdially supported by all who are in favor of vigorous prosecution of the wnr now being waged, not only for iadependeuce, t.ut.for every thing of value to us as a f jmmUoity and as individuals. TheSuta of North Carolina, by an unani mous vote of her Couveution, speeded and united her fortune with those of the Confederate States. This action met the universal appro bation' of her citizens at the time, no one lifting his voice agaiust it. v No public mm in the State, can therefore, without pkrso.nal nis hosor, and without covering uimsklf with tub ueepi-st jgsomist, advocate the abandonment of the cause of the Confederate States, and de sert 4ur brave soldiers who have gone into the field to maintain that cause. Our reasons f r continuing the war are a thousand fold .stronger than they were foi em barking in it originaily. The State seced d be cause of apprehension that our rights might be invaded, and because Lincoln, by proclamation called for a few hundred men to a-sist him in his war against t'.ia Gulf States. Now iu such portions of our State as his armies occupy, ho forces into his ranks by conscription, every mm, wnuc anj oiai;. ivnuuiv uw uc m . .11.1 - v. 1 1... by a series of acts of Congreps, couhscatnu lor its ue, all our property, both real and personal.

Yankee masters, weie always notorious for avarice and cruelty, but the atrocities whhdi they havecommitted within the last three years have caused-humanity to stand ughast with horror, tie whom, they have selected to carry ou the war against us, by the universal 'acclamation of European as well as American civtlizition, has been de nominated " The Brute.' And yet if he be not a fur typefof our enemies, why w.;s it that he not oniy received ovations in the Northern cities: but by a deliberate vote of the Congress of the Lincoln government, he was fte-jlared worty to wear the sword he had stohu. Tl.cse acts as wvll as his retent'on ot a high command,. show him to b the fiuing leptesentative of thosj who control the ac tion of our enemies r know of no variety .of the-human race wIijuh we ought -not to prefer as masters to the yankees, whose lead ing tiairs are avarice and hypocrisy ; .'or to tbo 1 duplicity ami running of the fox. ihey add t!e rapacity of the woif and the venom of the serpent. To protect us from such enemies, to save our women from hecomiag co' k. and houtiu servants, wv have Nothing to rely on but the favor of Go l and the valor of "our armies.
