Tlie He view- Go*-. ErowiO Speech.
We have space for but a few words about
the stirring spectacle of yesterday. Camp
Ogle-thorp was thronged with the elite cf the
city and surrounding country A fiiend who
surveyed the beautiful spectacle from an emi
nence, says that the thousands of gallant
soldiery seemed lost in the vast crowd. The
Governor, with his suite came upon the
grounds at four o’clock in an open barouche,
bscortcd by the Bibb Cavalry, G’apt. Napier,
and found the Regiment and Battalion drawn
up iu line with standard . dJ. 3 pj a yed. After
review they were marched ii) column by Com
panies, (thirteen in number—the Dahlonega
Company not having yet arrived —) past the
Governor and staff. The Regiment and Bat
talion, were then formed into three sides cf a
hollow square, and an invitation extended to
the spectators to fill up the intervening space,
which was done with no little rapidity. IIi s
Excellency then addresed the whole in the
very appropriate speech we append below,
which was frequently iuterupted by the plaud
its of the auditory and soldiery.
The Governor’s concluding address to the
soldiery was most effective, and met with a
stirring response from the gallant defenders of
their country's rights. They Lave, indeed, the
reputation and honor of Georgia in their keep
ing. Wh© docs not feel what lusture the
gallant Palmetto Regiment in Mexico reflected
upon South Carolina, and how it was the mis*
fortune of the Indiana Regiment to inflict a
lasting stain upon the escutcheon of that
State ? The gallant Georgia Regiment and
Battalion, number in tanks many of tlie
brightest intellectsand most chivalrous spirits
in the proud Empire State. A large part of
them leave homes cf luxury, case and refine
ment, for the hard fare of the private soldier
in camp. One of the companies, the Bain
bridge Yclunteeis, uniformed in coarse flannel
shirts, and pantaloons of the coarsest negro
clctb. are said to represent over a million of
dollars in real and personal estate. But we
have no space for further discourse. The fol
lowing is the . ,
Officers and Soldiers ~
The circumstances which have called for
this rendezvous are of a peculiar character,—
Our fathers bequeathed to us the wisest and
best Government on the face of the earth
The foundation upon which that Government
was based, were the equality of the States, and
the equal protection of the rights of the citizens
of every section of the Union. Equality of
sovereignty, equality of rights, and equality of
protection, are all that the South ever demand
ed. She has borne much, and endured long,
but her stern decree has at last gone forth
that with less than these she will never be con
tent. In the hope of a returning sense of
justice on the part of the people of the North
ern States, and for the sake of the Union, the
South has long submitted to unjust Congres
sional legislation, which has plundered her o!
millions of dollars annually, to build up and
enrich her N irthern confederates.
Southern industry has been taxed for lhe
benefit of Northern interests, until onr confed
erates there, sustained by our bounty, and
pampered ly our liberality, have grown rich
and haughty. Not content with all the advan
tage affordc 1 them by our tariff acts, naviga
tion laws and o’Uer legislation, !nt nded to tax
us for theii benefit, they Lave even grown
insolent, and despite our frequent warnings and
remonstrances, have assumed to exercise the
right of regulating our domestic affairs, ao
c: i ding to their own notions of propriety. Not
only so, but they have assumed to themselves
exclusive ownership and control over the
whole territory cf the Union.
When Southern blood arid Southern valor
had won a rich and added it to the
common territory, they appropriated it ail to
their own use. and insisted on excluding the
sons of the South from all participation in it,
unless they would consent to occupy it upon
terms of inequality. We demanded an equal
participation in the common property. They
refused to allow it. We then offered to divide
it by a line giving them much the larger por
tion. I hey tpurned the offer and by superior
numbers in Congress attempted to drive us
from every inch Qfjt. Nor was. this all, a
portion of their number invaded the soil of a
Southern sister State, and attempted to incite
insurrection and rebellion, and with fire and
sword, to spread devastation and ruin over the
fair fields of our native South. A. powerful
political party sympathizing with this outrage
and even deifying the demons who perpetrated
it, planting.itself upon u free soil platform, and
adopting fcr its watchv/ord, Northern superior
ity and Southern inequality, has trampled
down our friends in the Northern States,
proudly triumphed over us at the ballot box,
and then taunted us v/ith its arrogance about
Northern strength and Southern weakness.
But one of the two aiternat’ves v/as left.. —
We must cling to the Uniion, and become
slaves in it, or we must sunder its ties and live,
freemen out of it. We chose the latter, an 1
Seven gallant Southern States have refntmed
the powers delegated tc the Federal Govern
ment, which had been so wantonly abused by
it. Sovereign and independent as each then
was, they all met in Convention; and have
formed a new Confederacy upon the basis of
the old Constitution, making such modifica
tions only, as the experience of three-quarters
of a century had shown to be absolutely ne
cessary, and such as might have preserved the
olil Union pepetually, had they been incorpo
rated into the old Constitution, and faithfully
carried out in practice by the Government.—
The wisdom of these changes is so apparent
to all, that even our enemies arc obliged to ac
knowledge the superiority of our statesmanship
The revolution is complete I A new nation
is born ! Civil and religious liberty are
established 1 A government of equality exists!
And a Statesman and warrior of splendid in
tellectual powers, great prudence, commend
able caution, and enlarged experience, who
has won by his valor in the field, and his wis
dom in the Sen: te, a reputation which has ex
tended far beyond the limits of our continent,
lias been called to watch over this infant giant
in its tender years. Who is not proud to rally
arbiind the flag of his country, when Jefferson
Davis directs the sword, and presides over the
Cabinet? But I must not forget that Georgia’s
I greet statesman whose brilliant intellect, clear
i head, pure heart, and eloquent tongue have
excited for him the plaudits of millions of free
men and the admiration of civilized man every
where, occupies the second place in the Coun
cils of the Confederate States. 1 might refer
with pride, to the Cabinet, with the giant
Georgia intellect at its bead, but I forbear.-r
--\Vith the blessings of Heaven upon us, and,
with such men as Davis, Stephens and Toombs
at the helm, who can fear the result of the
But why are you soldiers ? Is it for
the purpose cf invading the territory of the
United States, or plundering their people’—
No. We are not the aggressors. We tally
onlv in defence of Southern homes, Southern
fire-sides, and Southern altars, which arc threat
ened with invasion and destruction. We de
precate war. Bui if war is forced upon us,
I we are prepared for it, and when once coininen
-1 ced, we swear by out altars, it shall never ter
minate till those who provoked it shall have
' been the greatest sufferers by it. In its prose
cution, should we be compelled, in self-defence,
to “carry the war into Africa,” and seize .the
Federal Capital, or ev<n to devaste Northern
cities, it will not be our fault. We have only
asked to be permitted to depart in peace from
th sc with whom we could no longer live in
peace. In the language of Abram to Lott, we
have said to our Northern brethren, Let there
be no strife between us we pray thee. Is not
the whole land before thee i if thou wilt take
the kft hand, then we will go to the right, or
jf thou depart to the right hand, then wc will
go to the left.
How have they responded to these peaceful
overtures ? They deny our right either to de
part ’n peace from them or to live as equals in
peace v\ith them. They claim the right to ex
ecute their laws wiihin our jurisdiction, to
garrison our Forts with a black republican
array, and to blockade our cities with a black
republican navy. Nay, more, they threaten to
vindicate this assumed right at the mouth of
the cannon and the point cf the bayonet. —
You have rallied, soldiers, to rneent them upon
this ground, and if necessary to drive them
back by force of arms.
1 You are not called, however, to meet- them
upon the soil of Georgia, for wo arc proud to
knots that no Federal troop desecrates her soil,
and no Federal flag waves over any portion
of her territory.
Wc not only occtipy- our own forts and arse
nals in Georgia, but by virtue of the moral
power which sleeps in those stalwart arms of
yours, you have enabled me, as your executive,
to extort respect, for our State even from our
enemies, and to compel the public officers of
a great freescil State, who had plundered one cf
your fellow-citizens, to make prompt restitu
We must not ferget, however, that some of
our sister Confederate States are less fortunate,
and that United States troops now occupy
some o.f their strongest fortifications, while
that Government threatens further reinforce
ments. The cause of all the Confederate States
is now opinion cause. W heu one is invaded
all are invaded. It is for the common defence,
therefore, that you have been called to arms,
and most nobly have you responded to the calE
Fifteen thousand other bravo volunteers, with,
arms in their hands, will stand ready, at a
moment’s warning, to ; . march to sustain you,
and fifty thousand.more will respond whenever
their services are needed. .Soldiers, you are
novV soon to pass from my command, and leave
for a time the territory of cur beloved old State.
Would that I could accompany you, and share
with vou your toils, and participate v,i.,h you
in your glory I My whole soul is in this move
ment, and my heart swells with emotions which
I cannot utter, when I am obliged to bid you
adieu, and return to my field ot labors else
where. But you, in common with the people
of Georgia, have assigned me other duties
than those which you are now called to per
form, and I must obey your belies., and dis
charge them to the best of my ability.
As I am not permitted, therefore, to gowitji
you, I must commit to your hands, upon „ha
field, the flag of Georgia, and the homor of
Georgia. In yoiir custody 1 know that the orio
will ever wave victorious, and the other will
never be tarnished. While the eyes of a mil
lion of persons in Georgia will be anxiously
turned towards you, the prayers of our church
es, our mothers, our wives, our daughters, and
our sisters will constantly attend you. None
will contemplate your defeat, but the hearts ot
all will leap with joy at your success.
Take, then, that flag in your hands, and re
member that, in presence of this vast audience

Go, then, and may the God of battles go
with you, and lead, protect and defend you, til!

BrnecT Trade with Charleston. — The fol

man in this city, dpted—
“Dundee, March 14, 1861.

might be such as to encourage a good direct

far as I can judge from the accounts which
we have received in this country, there seems
no prospect of a re-union between the South
ern and Northern States, and if there has been
any expectation of this entertained lately th6
passing of the new tariff must have effectually
dispelled them. The goods, therefore which
the Southern States have been in the habit of
receiving byway of New York, must now be
imported direct. I think I explained to you be
