A Secesli Letter.
[The following letter from a lady ID Nashville to a friend in the Rebel Army was found iu New Orleans bv Edwin Ly man and furnished us fur publication : ED] HOME, March Ist, 1862. DEAREST FRIEND: A lonely rainy Sabbath eve is only well and pleasantly •pent in reading and writing. I wrote list Sunday, and if the mails were regu lar, you have it ere this 1 was compelled to send it to Maury Co, to Mr. Vanleer. as we are such "close prisoners" we are allowed no mails. 1 am really so low apirited this evening I fear your letter will not be so very welcome, and it is a atate so unusual for rue, that I feel quite unlike myself. 1 awakened this morning with a feelioir, so deep, of such intense, unconqufruble hatred to t lie "Yankee Vermin," that I almost feared to attend church, but 1 went. Mr. Harris oreached "charity never faileth," and. Ed. while lieteniug, I shuddered to think how little 1 had. I prayed God forgive, but I could not help it, that they might be scattered so far apuit, that only Omnipotence could put their disjointed limbs together. It in scathing, crushingly humiliating to our proud southern natures, to bear the inso lence of even their presence in our city I uiust in justice to Gen say, that hiti untiring vigilance, lias prevented much that otherwise we would have suf feted, and although an enemy, he has thus far been a gentleman, that is .on much to say of a Federal though lie is a General. Our city is overpoicered with the honor of holding in her midst from Generals, Colonels, Captain"" and Lieutenants, .suf ficient to form a blockade (or blockhead ) My eyes are positively on pivots, for 1 have turned them often enough to have transferred them had it not been the case. I aiu sitting by my window and have a full view of the '-blue devils" for they have been passing here since last Mon day like "bees in a swarm." 1 do not kuow the strength of the army, but they are the most splendidly cquiped men that I ever read of, much less saw. The pri vates are dressed much better than our officers. Quito a gorgeous display they intide in their triumphal march through the city, the Band playing "Hail Colum biu," but when the "arch fiends" raised the "Siars and Stripes" to the tune of "Dixie," I pray God may never let me feel as I then felt, for Ld 1 coulu with out a quiver, or ihe slightest feeling of humanity, have cut the hearts out of ev ery one of the in. Now my friend "don't keep at a distance," I have entirely re covered from my savagerous mood, and aiu perfectly willing to let them alone kuovving that the Lord will reward them for their iniquities. It would take the! patience of a Job, the meek humility of a Mary, to make this Mary await such judgment though without a wish to has ten it. 1 have never liked tho North; they are assent ially a different, run of people from us, but I would willingly nave extended the band f friendship, if they only would have attended to their! own business, and kept their side of the! "fence" but now that they have crossed it desolating our homes, I would wage a war eternally, and it eventually they con quer. lei it be a wide desolation without a sprig of vegetation or a human being alive. Fur myself before I will acknowl edge their aulhotitT, 1 will make my own funeral pile ami die if I cannot live free. I aiu not excited now, I am as calm and colli as an icicle, and mean every word that 1 say. I have n tin the least given up, 1 feel that the war has ju>t begun, and though tor a while hope folds her wings, I know she will perch on our stand.ltd a bright winged bird of liberty "We must make up our minds to suffer and benr\ the path to freedom is not over r<ies, and ue must pray, for with' lit the help of God, we are as babes. I elpless. Gen Buell says lie is quite deceived in regard to the Union feeling in Nashville, that he feels lie is in the verv hot bed of feces-ion. General Mitchell t-a\a the citizens of Nashville,can pursue the "even tenor of their way" but they shatit crook their finger He says it was and still is h : s firm intent to marry u Tennessee wo-; u an, for he a hurt s above everything 1 that ho had seen South, the proud, de liberate courage of the Nashville women, although their honor of a Yankee slings him to tho "quick." Should lie happen, to marry a woman of my "calibre" he would get stung indiscriminately Gen. Nelson, is a crabbed old bachelor. lie and his staff were lording it through town the ether day and passing Mrs. Kirk mans, some girls were standing on the porch waving a secession flag, as the cav alcade made a momentary pause, they gave three times three for Jeff Davis ami the Southern (Vufeder cy, and down with the Lincolnites. The General r.-de up and told them such cheers must cease that he had met with insult from the " bab blr.li/ babies of the South." and the girls say he threatened them with a bastiie.— Well now if he begins to show his "old cloven foot" he hud better prennez anrde, J • C 1 " and it ho impresses women for their tongues, he had better begin his work, fur it will lake a bastiie from Tennessee to Florida to Imid them. Down at the Academy the other day. I was waiting on one of our soldiers and Dr Madder came up with an old gentleman, and stopped to speak to try patient. 1 was at the first glance prepossessed with his vener able appearance, he addressed bin.self to me by saying "Miss you had brave soldiers at Donaldson," I acquiesced, and after a few moments con venation, lie spoke of what brav* fellows tbe north-west seat out, I said yes, although my enemies, I acknowledged them fine soldiers, and dreaded the contact with them. I looked up at his next question which was "Now Miss acknowldge the Yankee soldiers the bravest fel'ows on earth." Then for the first time T saw he was a Yankee, and all the pride and haughtiness of my na tion. were concentrated in the bow I made when I replied, "I do sir most particu larly those of Buena Vista ant? Bull Run." t hope Ed. that you are not getting dis couraged in our cause, but in regard to that I have no fear. My prayer is that under the guidance of a ju*t God. that victory may ye* ciown our noble efforts. Remember me to all friends and believe me ever the same. MARY. The Government now uses for twine, for postal purposes, flax instead of cotton. The material is stronger and safer than cotton twine, and a hundred yards no.re to the pound is produced.

HURD'S PRE BAR ATIONS GOOD 1 The best evidence that they are is. that their firmest friends and best patrons are those who have used them longest. Da. WILLIAM B. HDKD is an eminent Dentist of Brooklyn, freasuier of the New York State Dentists' Association, and these preparations have been used in his private practice tor years, and no leading citizen of Brooklyn or Williamsburgh questions their excellence, while eminent Dentists of New York recommend them as the best known to the profession. Without the aid of advertising, dealers have sold them by the gross. The Editor of the Brooklyn Daily Times says : "We are happy to know that our friend, Dr. Hurd. is succeeding beyond all expectations with his Mouth Wash and Tooth Powder. The great secret of his success rests with the fact that his articles are precisely what they are represented to be, as we can testify from then long use." The well-known P. T. Dnrnum writes :—'T found your Tooth Powder so good that my family have used it all up. We find it the best Powder for tlA* teeth that we ever used. I shall feel obliged if you will send rneanother supplv at the Museum at vour convenience, with ihe bill." Hut their cost is so small that every one may test the mutter for himself Beware of the ordinary Tooth Powders Dr. Hurd's Tooth Powder contains no acid, nor alkali, nor charcoal, and polishes without wearing the enamel. Use no other. WHAT DOES DR. KURD'S REMEDIES EFGECT 1 Dr. Hard'.- Mouth I fash and Tooth owder will give young ladies that finest charm in woman—a sweet breath and pearly teeth. Tiy them, ladies. Dr. Hard's Mouth Wash and Tooth Porcder will ciean-e the mouth from ail foul exhala tions. and if used in the morning, will make the breakfast taste sweeter and the day begin more pleasantly. Hundreds of persons can testify to this. Try Iheui, gentlemen. Dr. Hunt's Mouth Wash. and Tooth Powder are the best preparations in the world for cur ing BAD BKBATH and giving firmness and health to the gums. Hundreds of cases of Diseased Bleeding Gums, Sore Mouth, Canker, etc., have been cured by I)r. Hurd's astringent wash. Dr. Qurd's Mouth Wash and Tooth Powder give an additional charm to courtship, and make husbands more agreeable to their wives and wives to thei" husbands They should he useu by every person having ARTIFCI \L TEETH, which are liable to impart a taint to the mouth. Dr. Hurd's Toothache Drops cure Toothache arising from exposed nerves, and are the best friends that parent- can nave in the house to save their children from tortue and themselves from loss of sleep and sympathetic suffering. Farmers and Mechanics! you mmnot well afford to neglect your teeth. For a trifling sum, you can now get preservatives, than which Rothschild or Astor can get nothing better. Remember that Dyspepsia and Con sumption of the Lungs often originate in Neg lect of Teeth. Send for the Treatise, on Teeth. and read Dr. Fitch's observation on this sub ject. It too late to arrest decay in your own teeth, save your children's teeth. IVcuritlgia Plasters. Dr. Kurd's Neuralgia Non-adhetive Plaster* are the most pleasant and successful remedies j ever prescribed for this painful disease. The patient applies one, soon becomes drowsy, falls i asleep, and awakes free from pain, and no! blister or other unpleasant or injurious con sequences ensue. F.r Earache and Nervous Headache, apply according to directions, ami relief will surely follow. Nothing can be ob lained equal to Dr. Kurd's Compress forNeu-j ralgia. Try them. They are eutircljia novel, curious, and original preparation, and won derfully successful. They are of two sizes, one small, for the face, price 15 vents, and the j other large, for application to the body, price ! 37 cents. Will be mailed on receipt of price and one stamp. WHAT ARE THE PFOPLE DOING 1 The American people are intelligent enough to appreciate preparations that contribute so : much to the happiness of those using them,' and they want them. Every mail brings us letters, some ordering the TREATISE ox TEETH, some the NEURALGIA PLASTERS, and not a few enclosing 37 cents for the MOUTH WASH, to be sent bv mail; hut to those we are compelled to reply that it is impossible to send a half pint bottle by mail. The people want these Remedies. \Yho will supply them? Now is the C'liancc for Agents, Shrewd agents can make a small foitune in carrying these articles around to families.

AYER'S CHERRY PECTORAL FOR THE RAPID CI' ItE OF COrGHS.COI.DB,IIOARBENKBB, INFLU ENZA, BRONCHITIS, WHOOPING COUGH, CROUP, ASTHMA, IN CIPIENT CON SUM PTION, and for the relief of consumptive patients in adTans*4 stages of the disease. We need not speak to the public of its virtues. Throughout every town, and almost every hamlet of ths American Ktates. its wonderful cures of pulmonary cum plaints have made it already known. Nay, few are ths families in any civilized country on this continent without some personal experience of its effects; and fewer yet ths communities any where which have not among them some living trophy of its victory over the subtle and dsn. gerot'.s diseases of the throat and lungs. While it is the most powerful antidote yet known to man for the formi dable and dangerous diseases of the pulmonary organs, it is also the pleasantest anil safest remedy that can he em ployed for infants and young persons. Parents should have it in store against the insidious enemy that steals upon them unprepared. We have abundant grounds to believe the CHERRY PECTORAL saves more lives by the eoa sumptions it prevents than those it cures. Keep it by you, and cure your colds while they are curable, nor neg lect them until no human skill ran master the inexorable Canker that, fastened on the vitals, eats your life xway. All know ttio dreadful fatality of lung disorders, and as they know too the virtues of this remedy, we need not do more than to assure them it is still made the best it can be.
