Milledgeville. May 17, 18GI.
I To the People of Georgia-
By their wicked and unprovoked aggres
i ions upon our rights, our Northern neigh-
I bors have driven us out of the Union estab
-1 lished by our fathers, and are now waging
i an unjust and unholy war upon us, and at-
I tempting to overthrow the Government of
I equality established by us for our own pro
-1 tection. They are collecting a large military
force upon our borders. They threaten to
1 invade our territory with large armies; to
| sweep over it with lire ami sword: to ineit
| our slaves to insurrection and murder; to vi
j olate the sancity of our homes, and to in
flict the most cruel and outrageuos wrongs
j upon our wives and daughters. They ap
peal to the very basest passions of the hu
man heart for the purpose of exciting their
j Soldiers and preparing them for the execu
tion of their diabolical plans of rapine and
■ plunder. They promise to apportion our
lands and divide our substance among their
base mercinaries, as a reward for our exter
mination and butche’y. In some of their
largest cities, “beauty and booty” are made
the rallying cry to induce the lowest rabble
to enlist against us.
In aid ot the Government of Mr. Lincoln
now a military despotism, disregarding all
Constitutional guarantees and restric
tions, while engaged in an unholy crusade
against us, the people of the North are mak
ing largo contributions from their private
funds io equip and support troops in the
field to fight against t he South.
The Government of the Confederate States
which is the Government of our own choice,
and entitled to the fullest confidence and
most cordial support of every true Southern
heart, has called for troops to meet these
wicked invaders in the field of battle and to
drive them back.
Georgians have responded nobly to the
call. Thousands have already left their
homes, their friends, their wives, their chil
dren, and all else that was dear to them on
i earth, and are now in the field submitting
! to all the privations of camp life and endur
ing all the hardships and fatigues of war for
I the defence of our glorious common cause.
Thousands more of our fellow-citizens must
! soon follow.
While our gallant soldiers have our warm
est sympathies and our most fervent prayers,
' shall they not also have our material aid, and
shall we not see to it thatall the actual wants
i of themselves and their families are sqppli
The Government of the Confederate States
1 having been but recently organized, and hav
, ing to encounter an expensive war during
the*fi.rst months of its existence, cannot be
expected to supply promptly all things necs
! essary to the comfort of large armies in the
I 'flie people of Georgia pay less tax in pro
i portion to the value of their property than
j the people of any other State in either Con-
■ | federacy. The aggregate value of our pri
i j vate property is nearly eight hundred mil
, lions of dollars. We would contribute ten
• ■ millions of this to the support of our soldiers
[ of free will offering and feel none the poor
Let us not then subject ourselves to heavy
taxation, or our posterity to heavy debt, but
let us show to the world that we have the
ability and the will, by private subcription,
to clothe and feed our glorious and gallant
troops m the Held and their families, at home
while they are defendingour wives, our chil
dren, out- homes and our altars.
People of Georgia, as your Executive, I ap
peal not to your legislators to tax you, but I
appeal to your patriotism and your well
known liberality in behalf of the soldier and
, the Soldier’s family. The soldiers must
have clothing. My appeal is first made to
the ladies, whose fervent patriotism, burn
ing zeal, and energetic action in our glorious
struggle, rekindle in our minds the memor
ies of the immortal women of the Revolution
of 1776, and convince us that while their
daughters have improved upon their intel
ligence and refinement, and have more pe
cuniary ability to act, they have abated noth
, ing to their patriotism and their devotion to
the cau.->e of freedom. I know therefore
that my appeal to the women of Georgia will
meet a hearty and cordial response.
I request that each lady in Georgia prepare
• at as early a day as she conveniently can,
' such contribution of soldier’s clothing as she
may desire to make of such material and
oi such color she may be able to command
-—any kind of home made cloth will be ac
ceptable—and that each one deposite her
contribution with the Clerk of the Superior
Court, of the county of her residence, who is
requested to act as agent to receive it, and
to keep a book in which he will enroll the
name of each contributor with an account of
her contribution. The Captains and Justi
ces of the Peace of each Militia District in
the State are respectfully requested to ap
point meetings in their respective Districts,
and to bring this question before the people
and to act as agents for the ladies of their
districts in forwarding their contributions
with a correct account of the articles contrib
uted by each, to the clerk of the Superior
Court of the County. As the contributions
are brought in, the Clerk is requested, at con
venient intervals, to box and ship them at
the expense of the State, to the Quartermas
ter General of this State at Milledgeville,
placing in each box a letter giving the name
of the county from which it comes I cannot
doubt that the Railroad and Express Compa
nies in this State, with their accustomed
liberality, will forward all such packages to
the Capitol free of charge.
So soon as the donations in each county
ceased to be made, I request the Clerk of the
Superior Court to transmit the book contain
ing the names of the donors, with the ac
count of the donation of each, to the Execu
tive Office, to be deposited among the per
manent records of the State. If each lady
in the State should contribute but a single
garment, the supply would be abundant for
all our troops. While a few may not be pre*
pared to contribute, many will doubtless do
much more than this.
To the lady making the most valuable con
tribution of clothing before the first day of
August next, to be judged by the Quarter
master Geneneral, the Treasurer and the
Comptroller General, I will present a beauti
ful golden cup, and will cause her name to
be enrolled on a blank leaf of the Book of
Minutes of the Executive Department, with
; a statement of the reasons why it is so en
j I will also cause the names of eacL
| nine ku-Ues num-kiug mu ma>tVutuable dona*
Ntions next after the one above mentioned,
be enrolled, each, on a seperate leaf, in
like manner in the order in which the hon
or is awarded to each by the three officers
My next appeal is to the gentlemen. I
propose that they raise by contribution one
million of dollars immediately, to be used by
the State in equipping and providing for the
wants of the Georgia troops.
I request the Justices of the Inferior Court
of each county, or any two or more of them
to act as agents for this purpose, and to ap
point such persons in the different Militia
Districts as they may think proper to assist
them. I suggest that books of subscription
be opened in each county on the first Tues
day in June next, or so soon thereafter as
may be convenient, and that public meetings
be held in each county for the purpose of
discussing the question and soliciting sub
I have requested our able and faithful
Comptroller General to make out from the
tax books and publish a statement of the
amount which would be the just proportion
of each county, should each determine to
contribute, its part of the one million dollars
proposed to be raised. The Treasurer of this
State, on being informed by the Justices of
the Inferior Court of the amount of the do->
nation of the county, will direct the manner
of its transmission to the treasury, and will
receipt for the amount. The Justices in
each county are respectfully requested, so
soon as the books of contribution are closed
to transmit them to the Executive Office
that they may be preserved among the per
manent records of the State.
As the Executive of the State, 1 will pre
sent a beautiful flag of the Confederate
States to the county making the largest do
nation in proportion to the value of its taxa
To the gentleman making the largest do
nation before the first day of August next, I
will present a golden medal with appropriate
inscriptions, and will enroll his name with a
statement of thecause of its enrollment upon
a blank leaf in the Book of Executive Min
utes I will also enroll in like manner the
names of the nine gentlemen making the
next largest donations in the order in which
they are entitled by the amount of their con

Providence has blessed us with means of
making within our own limits almost every
thing necessary to our support and comfort
and with a monopoly of the great staple
which the world cannot do without. It is
said our enemies exempt cotton from block

out it. I appeal to our planters, therefore,
to refuse to ship a bag while the blockade
Lists. This will soon remove the blockade
from our ports, and the increase of price will
amply reward you tor the loss you may sus
tain while you keep your cotton on hand.—
1 trust our people will hold public meetings
and petition the Government at Montgom
ery to lay an absolute embargo upon cotton
permitting not one bag to pass out of the
Confederate States while the blockade is
maintained. I appeal to our capitalists to
go to work vigourously and prepare to man
ufacture such articles we most need. I also
appeal to our planters to redouble their en
ergies for the production of all supplies of
provisions necessary to support our people
at home and our armies in the Held. The
prospect is most flattering for an abundant
wheat hayvest, Let each planter so soon as
his wheat is cut, break and plant a few acres
in an early kind of corn. This would add
hundreds of thousands of bushels to tho crop
let each also plant a large crop of peas and
turnips, and look dilligently to the culture
ot everything that wjllsustain tho life of man
or beast, that we may be entirely indepen
dant of all supplies from abroad. Finally,
I appeal to all—ladies and gentlemen—to
practice strict economy: dispense with every
unnecessary luxury and devote all to
our country till the battle is won and our in
dependence acknowledged by all the civiliz
ed nations of the earth.

Additional Particulars of the En
gagement at Sewell’s Point. /
Yesterday (Sunday) evening, about four
or five o'clock, a small chooner from below,-' I
passed up, and when near the Monticello zv
she fired a gun which passed over the bat
tery. It is not known postively whether she /
fired at the shooner or at the battery
though it is asserted by some that
the schooner was acting in the capacity of a
lookout for the steamer, and had sent a boat
alongside of her before she fired the gun.—
The idea is, that the schooner got as near
the fort as possible, and sent a man up on
her mast-head to spj’ into the fort, those in
side being unconscious of what was going on
and deeming her a friend. However, the
first gun was taken as a banter, and the bat
tery answered it with much spirit and rapid
ity as convenience would allow, the second
ball, we undestand, taking effect in her rig
ging, much of which was cut away. The fi
ring continued for some considerable time,
by both of the steameis and the battery.
The two rifle-cannon, it is said, did the
most execution, a shell from one of which it
is reported bursted striking the steamer’s
rigging, though it is not known whether it
proved fatal. The steamer was struck in
her hull several times, nearly amidships, and
one hole we understand was knocked into
her side, large enough for a flour barrel to
enter. The steamer’s battery was finally si
lenced, and about that time the two little
steamers, the Yankee and the Young Ame
rica, came up, both of which we understand
fired a few balls at the fort. They all three
then started off’ down the river, towards Old
It is the general impression that the Mon
ticello is seriously crippled, from the manner
in which she was creened over when sheleft
and probably from her having ceasing her
fire so quick.
The shot and shell from the steamers flew
over the battery, many of them striking a
mile in the rear. One shell bursted near the
battery without injury. A piece of it, weigh
ing four or five lbs., we saw last night. The
tops of the pine trees in the neighborhood
were pretty well cut down by the shot and
-hell from the Yankees, and the boughsand
aplinters were scattered about with a good
deal of activity, though with no bad results,
except the scratching of the hand of one the
staff officers who was present.
It gives us plesure to hear so glowing a re
port of the spirit of braverj’ which was .
brought out in this engagement. We feel
satisfied our cause is in the hands of the
right kind of men.
During the cannonading, we understand,
some of the Infantry sailed out on the beach
and discharged their small arms (Minnie
rifles, wo presume,) at the Monticello, she
being, what was considered at the time
within range. It is said that every man en
gaged on shore acted the part of a hero ; the
only regret being that they were not more
thoroughly prepared for the occasion, by
having their heavy ordnance in better con
dition for the reception of the enemy.
The only injury, we understand, with the
exception of the staff’ officer, was that re
ceived by Mr. Wm. Morris, of the Woodis
Rifle corps, who got his ankle bruised by the
rebound of one of the big guns. We under
stand tho injury is very slight. Not a shot
of the enemy struck the works to injure
them, most of them passing far over the
head. “Nobody hurt” on our side, though
wo don’t believe we could say the same
thing for the enemy, as the apparent confu
sion on board seemed to indicate otherwise.
It is thought by some that this attack on
our battery is intended as a ruse to draw our
