The paper does not go to press until after the arrival of the mail. It is delivered by Carrier for $8 per year of 44 for six months.., Transfer ofthe State Tramps.-.-The Mifrissitppian of Tuesday says: The Brigades under Generals West and Alcorn have been transferred to the Confederate servica, and assigned to the department commanded by Gen. A. S. Johnson. The Brigade un der Gen. O'Farrell have marching or ders. We suppose the troops stationed at Pass Christian. if not already, will soon be transferred also. These are steps in the right direc tion, and we are truly glad to see that the military authorities of our State have lost no time in acting npon our suggestions in regard to this matter. We hope now that these eight thous and troops will be considered as Con federate troops from the date of their encampment, subject to the control of the President, and the State the reby relieved from the enormous bur der of taxation which these State encampments would have entailed. This will be nothing more than Mississippi has a right to ask. She is fully enlisted in the great cause of independence, and soon she will have 40,000 of her bravest and best men in the service of the Government, She has not a dollar nor a man that she is not willing to give to the coun try, but it behoves her now to hus band her resources and carefully ab stain from all unnecessary expendi ture. Ther and now.-In October last, the New York Herald, speculating on the results of Lincoln's election, to the presidency of the United States -an event the editor looked on as a foregone conclusion-said: "There are those who aflect to de spise the Southern States, and say we would be better off without them; such persons never trouble themselves with statistics. Of the exports of the countrh seventy per cents are from the south, and ,tnly thirty per cent from the north. It it clear th:u, that the South, which has only half the white populations ot" tlih North, while its exports are more thian doub le, is really supporting the northern population in our large cities. Take away that support and an amount ,t' suffering and confusioni will follow that is tearful to conteuldlate. ''The day may not be dita'tit when ;many of the republican mrchant-, ui.ucldan ics and factory hands will cur:. the day they were ever iudtuc,. ýit.i i1 a fanatical party which hals ilr,,o:: iht such ruin upon the country. But even this would be but the beginning of their sorrows." 4'he Herald is now a leading or gan in the pay of these same 'repub lican merchauts, mechanics and ftc tory hands.' About the same time the same mer cenary sheet published an article ta ken ftiom EuBow's Review, which it calls "a powCerftl article," showing that "the only plan for the safety of South and its institutions, is to re tire at once in peace from the Union -and for the sake of ihe North, the Herald adds that the danger of this step is imminent. To thos who talk of coercing the southern States into' the Union, after they have secaded, we recommend the reasoning of this able paper. Coercion is much easler said than done. New Orirans, Sept. 26.-When the Federalists entered Hampton, they secured all the articles of Free Ma sonry and-sent them to Baltimore to await the action of the Grand Lodge of Virginia. The reported expedition to capture Brunswick has been confirmed by a letter from a Southern lady datod New York, stating that a Federal fleet sailed South from Old Point Comfort. Wilmington.--A suspicious bark is still off New Inlet, and sometimes a steamer. Three pilots were decoyed. Six steamers were off Macon on Monday. It is reported that heavy firing was hearb on Monday from 9 A. M. to 1 P. M. off New River, Onslow county. The command in Western Virgin ia has devolved upon Floyd, as Wise has accepted another. New Orleans, Sept. 26.-Measures will be taken here to stop the oyster busines, as many supposed spies are supplying the fleet with daily papers and perhaps valuable information. The defences are progressing with great energy. The French offices returned to the Corvette last evening. They brought no mail and will take none. I~ The following appeared in the Richmond (Va.) Whig of the 23d ultiano. If the North continues her inhuman war upon the citizens of the South, no better move cnn be set on foot than that which will teach them the horrors of invasion: The Devoted Band.-The short est path to peace is that which car ries havoc and desolation to our in vaders. It is believed that there are five or ten thousand men in the South ready and willing to share the fate of Curtius, and devote themselves to the salvation of their country. It is proposed that all who are willing to make this sacrifice, shall arm them selves with a sword, two five shoo ters and a carbine ,- elh and meet, on horse-back, at some place to be de signated, convenient for the great work in hand. Fire and sword must be carried to the houses of those who are visiting those blessings upon their netighbors. Philadelphia, and even New York, is not beyond the reach of 'a long and brave arm. The moral people of these cities cannot be bet ter taught the virtues of invasion than by the blazing light of their own dwellings. None need apply for admission to "'1'TlE DEVOTED BAND" but those who are prepared to take their life in their hand, and who would in dulge not the least expectation of ,ver returning. They dedicate their lives to the destruction of their ene mices! A. S. B. D. B. Richmond. All Southern papers are reques ted to give this notice a few inser tions. G A letter from Galveston, Texas, of a recent date, to a young lady of Charleston, in form us that an attempt was made by about three hundred Lincolnites to effcet a landing, it is supposed for the purpese of firing the city, but they were attacked by tlhe citizens and military, when they made good theis retreat. Important, if true.-The Browns ville Flag says: "Rumor has it that 3000 Federal or rather U. S. troops, have been landed at San Bias, or at some other point on the P1acifc coast for the purpdse of marching ~a~ s the country towaid Tnes6n, -ad thus forming a junctibn with tl tbroops in New Mexico and Mexico aind then entering Texas by way of El Paso. If such is the case, they will proba bly be surprised to learn that their friends have been captured, and that they will have to meet a strong Tex as force, instead of a body of Fede ral friends"' The G'oafederate War Tax--The question is being very much debated, whether it is politic for the different States to collect for themselves the Confednrate war tax, thereby exclu ding the intrusion of government offi cials, and saving .the ten per cent allowed by the act of Congress on the amount assessed to each State, when collected and advanced by its own oflicers. Some ignorance is ap parent iu the discussion. The Con federate act is an ad valorem bill. It has all the characteristics of pleni tude and fairness. When the system of State taxation is conducted on an analagous, or a fair ad valorem basis, it can be very well and perhaps ad-' vantageously be extended to the col lection of the Confederate tax. In different and unequal systems of in ternal tavation, the enlargement of the collections of the State, by the amount of the government tax would be an imposition upon the people.- Rich. Examiner. Our friend Burnside has our thanks for an "Extra" of the Sun. Moving South.-The Fort Smith Times, of the 19th, says: A couple of men froxm Misseuri pas sed through town to day with about thirty negroes, bonnd for Toxas. They said they were running the-n from the Jayhawkers. TELEGRAPHIC. Quincy, Ill, Sept. 23.-Seige of Mulligans entrenchments at Lexing ton, Misssouri, commenced Tuesday the 12th, and continued from day to day until Friday last, at threefo'clock, P. M., when then Union flag was hauled down. The men tfught 59 hours without water, only having three barrels of vinegar to clench their thirst. Their supply of water was cut off, after a desperate fight on Wednesday. l'rentiss has assumed the command of North Missouri and started West yesterday. He is now west of Brookfield, cut off by the rebels, supposed to I e a part of Price's force. Great fears are entertpined that ihe will be captured. Quincy, Ill., Sept. 24.-Communi cation with Prentiss still cut ofi. nothing heard from hi.m since yeste:r day. Washington, Sept. 24.--The - p ponents charge that Fremont c,,u.,l have prevented the necessity of Mal ligan's surrender by sending time !y r ,inforcements. Advices received from St. Louis. by Freemont's friends however, stat, that he had no troops to spare, arao that it wa.s entirely impossible f,.r him to strengthenMnlligan's positic. St. Louis, Sept 23-Pl'rentiss' di: patch annoullucinfg the surrendetr ', Mulligan, states the federal loss , killed, and 140 wounded. lAhol loes sulpposed to be about bOo killile a. wounded. }'remlont telegraphed to, the , \' D)epartment last night that he was on the eve of starting with a heavy force, and hoped he would ie able t, dislodge the rebels ,from their pe,.-i tion at Lctington.
