Our subscription price Is from half to one, dollar less than other papers of the same fit with less reading matter. Hereafter the money must accompany flU.orders for the Iktfl i.ikencer. As we are required to pay cash for printers; paper, ink, and, in fact, nearly every thing. heccssary to our operations, every ration al man will at once see the necessity of our adopting the cash system.

Lamar mustered into service here on Inst Saturday. Ofmiolbtng tho soldiers of this Hi'ghAe'nl may ho assured: they will have such ollicera as they may boast of, as inferior to none. Tho Captain of the A vent Southrons, (W. 0. Yaiiglian) Btid of tlC loClmig Rilk-inqn, (.f. W. USmith,) are the right men in the right place, ami on the battlc-fleld will w in unfnl:ng laurels. Ity all means go Into tho Independent Hegimcnt. The recruits of this regiment are required to enlist fur the war. None others than such will be received by tho Confederate States. And why not enlist for the war? It may not last linger than six or twelve months. Should it lie of longer or' shorter duration, say three, four or five years, ami there should not bo a sufficient number of volunteers offering, a draft would be resorted to and w ho among us would stand draft f Not one would desire it. More than double tbc requisite number of twelve montlis Volunteers have already offered their services in the Confederate Army therefore, no new companies can be mustered into service un less they agree to enlist for tho war be it of long or short duration. , . "Va are glad to leant that Captain1 Vaughan's bompany is rapidly filling up. to the desired tiumlier, and those wishing to join it, would do well to apply forthwith. There is no time for delay. Forward, march 1 m 1 1 1 a The Louisville Journal. On last Sunday we picked up copy of the above paper, in house in Oxford, and after pe rusing it for some time, arrived at the conclu sion that it ought not to be encouraged by any inian claiming sympathy with our Confederacy. It is n enemy to our section, of the most dan gcrous character, inasmuch as its ridicule' of Southerner is hurled uport us from beneath the neutral flag. Prentice fays he is not an aboli tionist, and any fellow who says he is, is a base liar. We know Mr. Prentice, personally ; we " know him to be a gentleman we have received marks of kindness and courtesy at his hands ; but, now, as he is not for us, he is again'tt us, and we should treat him as an enemy to oiir 'country, and suppress his vile sheet as an in - tendiary document .lie clings to the Union bid Abe coercion. He is for bowing his neck to the yoke of drunken, Weak; imbecile Pres ident; electe'd By fanatic., Abolitionist thieves and pickpockets the lowest classes of Northern Society. The Journal is doing more to prevent Kentucky fr'on assuming her legal right to In dependence of a debased and demoralized ad ministration than any four vile abolition shecU bf Northern States. We say to all who are subscribers to the Lou isville Journal: send it back with "stop my subscription," written on its margin ; no matter if you have paid up a month or two, or a year ahead. Our friend atid fellow-citizen, Mr. T. N. Wen del, fcas been taking the Journal for twenty tlx years, and his subscription has been paid up to th year 1802, but not wishing to encourage such a vile sheet, inimical to our section, a few days ago he returned the paper with the request to "stop it" Ilonor to him for it Let every one do the same with the Journal and kindred publications.

A second cargo was placed aboard the. wagon, and on arriving near me spot of their first rebellion, they again "vamosed the ranche," and "dispersed" the bar reU with Ted and yellow heads, promiscuously on me streets, causing the Cmclnnatrutee'to run in streams of liquid fire over the dry earth. J hat must have been a strong article of fighting whiskey, w hich even the mules could not stand. Finding combination of darkies and others, too powerful to be suppressed in the ordinary way. as old Abe said, they succumbed, and were ta- koo fcome, dfsgtistei with the service into which they had been -pressed. "Nobody hurt"- J A pair of fine? gray horses, imbued with the mulish spirit, soon after the first rebellion, start ed down South Centre street, at telegraphic speed, and the last we saw or heard of them, they were in "the dim distance fleeting," to wards Coffeeville.

We have carefully examined our exchanges from every State in our young Confederacy, and feel much cheered at their mention, everywhere, of fine crop prospects. In South Texas a boun tiful harvest of good, sound wheaj is now being gathered, and in Galveston, bread has been eat en made from new flour from wheat raised this year. Boasting-ear were gathered in abund ance. From every part of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Mississippi, the accounts of tho crops of wheat are very satis factory. Everywhere South an unusual quanti ty of corn ha been planted, and the promise is very fair for full barns. Cotton has been slight ed, this season, for the more needful one of grain, in these war times. Wheat in this section is fast ripening, and will soon be ready for the mills. If there has been any Injur to it, it has been very light, and only in a few localities. - j If our farmers will but turn their attention now to their storks of hogs and cattle, wo may, next Full, snap our fingers at. the Great. WoM, and tell them, "We can, thank God, do without your provisions. We aro at last free from our enemies, persecutors and slanderers." J Ambrosial Oil I , v - , On Vast Friday Mr. fi repory, of Nashville, Tenn., of the firm of Clark, Gregory 4 Co., manufacturers of pills and a nostrum called Ambrosial Oil, paid our town a visit, and the Vigilance Committee, having some suspicion that he was not "all right," arrested the gentle man and "pumped" him, to see if ho was well. He asserted that he had been a resident of Nash ville for two yenrs past, and that he w as from Rochester, N. Y. His patent medicines are of fered as Southern remedies doubtless invented and concocted in Yankecdom. Mr. (i. tilogniphed to Nashville for a charac ter. The answer came, in due time, that he was "sound on tho goose question," and ho was permitted to travel. Wo would suggest to all pedlars that the present is a dangerous time to pursue their business. Better lay up, at home. Until our troubles aro over. At least, they'd better not visit Oxford. a i Southern Postnl Arrangements; Postmaster-General J. II. He.igan, has issued his Proclamation to Post Masters, Contractors, Koute Agents, Ac, acqiiaiiiling them with the fact that he will take charge of the mails on the 1st of June next, and asking them to continue their offices and duties until he forwards them new commissions. Until the new stamps and envelopes are ready for distribution, postage is to be prepaid in mo ney five cents upon a single litter for BOO miles and under ; over 500 miles, ten cents. Drop letters are to be charged two cents. We shall hail, with pleasure, the inauguration of our Southern independent mail lines, and trust that it may be the means of keeping out of our Southern land each ami every one of Lin coln's organs, such as the NeW York Ilorald and Tribune, Louisville Journal, Ac Mobile Dally Tribune. We feel very thankful to our personal friends, Messrs. Itallentyne It, Sossaman, of the Mobile Tribune, for their daily paper in exchange for our humble weekly. The Tribune Is one of the best dailies in the Confederacy, and we are glad to know that it is flourishing in the hands of its talented, industrious and courteous editors. We receive it in twenty-four hours after it is issued. The Charleston Mercury. We" arc indebted to the proprietor of the Charleston Mercury for sending us his tri-weck-ly edition. We may say that it is our most val uable exchange, and always hail its appearance on our table with feelings of gratification. It keeps np with the times, and publishes none but reliable information.

Aaother Flu Presentation. Our pet company, the A vent Cadets, were out on parade last Saturday in full dress and ful) ranks, presenting a very handsome appearance. and exhibiting proficiency in drill attained by no company of grown men in a shorter time than they have been drilling. At five o'clock in the afternoon, a large number of our citizen repaired to the beautiful grcve a short distance East of the University House, where flag was to be presented to the Cadets. The company was drawn up on one side of platform occu pied by eleven pretty and interesting girls, with sashes, upon each of which was lettered the name of the State' the wearer represented. They were as &llows: 'T - f Alabama Miss Moure Siiefgoo 1 South. Carolina Miss FitKxcp Isoar, Florida Miss Cosina Leooett. LouUiana Miss Lrcr Jones. TtJta Miss Tavlor Cook. Georgia Miss Faknie Lama.

Araxr, whose naine jour gallant company bears. It ii Intrusted to your eare niost joyously by loving hearts who are ever ready to assist you to their utmost And it is with feelings both painful and pleasant, we deliver to Ton thia token of our approval. . Painful, for, as gazing on onr broad fields, our amiling.valleya, our loved uomet, the sad tnount preaenu iumi uuu inu la upon ua., . ?it, it givea ua joy tu know that you will UMWt.the tjiui: hunired with the spirit of liberty and with the determination tluit the Confederate Dag, the emuleiB of the indupendeHeo of the Kouthj sliall ever wave over an independent people. We commit this gift to your hands with the assurance that you will pliint it wherever honor calls that you iU nub mit to none and with the prayer that every breeze is wultrd to ita fulila by the whig of an Angel des patched from the Mercy-seat to wateh over our loved laud. Captain Robcrt Siicegog, upon receiving the fin ', responded as follows : . ' r Hin Caiitks:-As tfie rcpreaentatv,of the A vent Cadets, I accept, oa their, beliuir, Wit(! reelings 01 grateful emotion, this beautiful flu. We shall deurr ly prize it a the gift of the noble and gcjieroua.dour whose organ you are, anil it will ho doubly precious in our eyes because it is fxi cver sanctified by tho fuir hunda through which we have received it. , In thia time of triul and difficulty through which our eountrv is passing, it is the duty of each individ ual in do what he can for the promotion of the holy cause in which we are engaged ; and, as the poor wid ow east her two mites into uie treasury, ana was aam to Inivclv more than the rich wlio had contributed of their ubiimlunce, because "she of lier want did cast in all that she had," so would we exhibit our patriotism hv preparing ourselves tor liiturc service. In doing this, we give all that wo have. We know that youths like ourselves cannot as yet be permitted in take nart with strong and bearded men in the tierce stmgjrle of the battle field ; but we feel that we are not too young to learn tno use anu exercise oi amis. Many of us, even now, are almost as old as thousands of the lioy conscripts who laid down their lives for Kannlenn nnon the field ol Lelpsie : snd in defence of those loved ones who have been left at home by our elder brothers, wo are already old enough to die, if the occasion shall arise. If this war Is prolonged, we ahull soon be old enough to enter the service of our eountrv, and we would enter that service as trained on( skillful soldiers, and not as raw and igno rant recruits. Wherever we go, we shall hear thia flag with us, looking back, it may be, long years hence, upon the present moment, and nerving our selves lor the contest with tha Inspiring recollections of thia hour. We thank voii, from the fullness of our hearts, for your love and sympatlif, and We pledge ourselves that wo will endeavor to prove ourselves worthy of the honor you have this day conferred up on us, and never to disgrace the flag we have receiv ed at jour hands. Again, and a thousand times, we thank you alt, Ho was followed by Win, E. Andrews and Samuel Jones, in short but pointed addresses. Below is a report of the speech of tho first named. Master Jones' address has not been furnished us. Address of William E. Andrews. Laiiiks : It Is with feelings of the deepest interest mingled with emotions of gratitude, that we receive from your fair hands this proud insignia of love of country, regard ,for us, and devotion to your rights. We are young, inexperienced, and incapable of any great action ; yet, we have spirits that rise with indig nation and resentment when a Northern foe would dare to place his unhallowed feet upon our suered land, or wrest from us our independence. "Tis not expected of us to take the tented field and Oct an equal part with our hardier brothers of the South. Should the enemy ever invade our loved County of Lafayette, then we will unfurl this banner to the breeze, and rally around,it to protect your home and defend your riphts, though every one of the A vent Cadets be piled beneath its folds. The flag is small one, but very neatly got ten up with "stars and bars," our adopted Con federate flag, with the "Avcnt Cadets" in gilt letters upon one side. ' The Cadets' drills greatly relieve the dullness of our town, while so many of our citizens are absent on the war path. We trust that they will not only keep up their handsotiVe little com pany, but that they may continue to increase in number and usefulness. - THE BALL OF THE CADETS. On Saturday evening the Town Hall was bril liantly lighted, and soon after tea a gay scene wss presented there. We, by special invitation, attended, and upon entering the hall, we saw it crowded by the youth and beauty of our town, many of them whirling in the giddy mazes of the dance. Many happy faces were tliere the lassies in their snow-white robes, and the lads in gay uniforms, all chatting and laughing, for the time forgetting the war-cloud hovering over our sunny South. It was a happy event to the young, as well as the old, present The Ball closed before 11 o'clock, snd all re tired to their homes, well pleased with the fes tivities of the day. The Cadets know how to play tho gallant, as Well as soldier. the Mobile Cadets, new in Virginia, are posses sed of property worth in the aggregrate between three and four millions of dollars. cctssiotis from Oibarn.
