The eccentric Governor Foote, in the.
course of a debate iu the Confederate Con
gress. remarked :—“He chanced to kuow
toat there were men not far from where he
stood—God forbid that they should be
found iu this b dl—who were the open ad
vocates of a military despotism. Rumor 5
says that this portentous symptom is not
altogether confined to this viuLuage. baf!
that oue or two servitors of pampered j

our army. Now, let him say, once lor all \
that he should not willingly surrender up!
an atom of the present controlling power)
over the reserved militia force of the States 1
to the President, and add to lus present
dangerous capacity for mischief, especially !
as he was sure that he would never willing- *
ly surrender power of any kind once vested 1
in him. aud would be but too apt to seize I
all convenient opportunities of extending it.*i
The President will have to show himself-a ,
little more free from his strange and un
reasonable partialities and prejudices, a
Uule more regardful of well-known public
sentiment, bciorc he could yield him any
increase of bis military capacity. Ho bad i
but little relish for the notion of establish-1
iug a dictatorship. He had not yet so far]
uesponded as to our cause as to perceive*
tho necessity of resorting to this ancient)
Human expedient; but he would deliberate- I
ly sQuouuoe that, when he should consider j
the time for a dictatorship to have arrived,
he would not be willing to vest supreme 5
. power in the person who is now the incum-1
bent of the Presidential station; but be j
should, in preference, join in sclenting as |
cur dictatorial chief the only man in the i
Confederate States whom be believed it
would be safe to trust with such overwhelm
ing authority, the present iiiu<tri**ua
commander of our Army of Northern Vir
ginia, who, in all the attribute# which are
supposed to have belonged to Wa>bington
himself, is twperior io any other living

—An intelligent printer who arrived here 1
