Important Opinion nv Att’v Gkn. Speko.—
In reply to a ietter of the Secretary of Wan
Mr. Speed decides .• First —That the rebel
officers who surrendered to Gen. Grant have
no homes in.loyal States, and have no right
to come to places where their homes were
prior to going into the rebellion. Second—
That persons in the civil service of the reliel
lion, or who have otherwise given it support,
comfort and aid, and were residents of rcliel
territory, have no right to return to Wash
ington under that stipulation. Third —Hebei
officers certainly have no right to be wearing
their uniforms in any of the loyal States.
'1 tie Attorney General adds that such rebel
officers having done wrong in coming into
the loyal States, arc hut milling insult to in
jury in wearing their uniforms; tint they
have as much right to wear the traitor’s flag
through the streets of a loyal city as to wear
tne traitors garb; and that the stipulation
of surrender permits no such thing, ami the
wearing ot such uniform is an act of hostili
ty against the government.

The Aliuir of Yesterday.
A most disgraceful affair of mob violence
transpired on yesterday morning, which, we
trust, for tlie honor of our soldiers and the
lair fame of the city, will never be repeated.
The sacking of the Government stores
would have been proper enough had there
been anything like fairness iu the plunder of
the property. As it was, a most unequal
distribution was made of the spoils, and the
parties engaged iu the action have done great
injury to their fellow soldiers who have yet
We do not believe that many of those im
plicated were of Lee’s or Johnston's armies,
or, if so, tliey were instigated by shameless
parties who have avoided the front of battle.
This fact is made manifest, by the alacrity
with which the truly brave men rallied
around General Wright and Colonel Fiser,
who addressed the crowd iu a thrilling and
earnest manner. To these noble gentlemen
and distinguished soldiers our people owe a
deep debt of gratitude.
The most heinous part of the affair was in
the pillage of Messrs, Neal & Whitlock’s to
bacco store. The stock of these gentlemen
was of private ownership, and should have
been respited. We know that some twen
ty boxes ot tobacco stored in their establish
ment belonged to a gentleman whose whole
fortune had been placed at the disposal of the
Government, and who resolutely refused to
sell his bonds, lest by so doing, bis example
should be followed by those less patriotic
than himself. The little all that he had saved
is now gone, aud the pilferers have-the poor
satisfaction of knowing that they have beg
gared a man who gave his son and property
l'or their benefit.
Let there be no destruction of private pro
perty. R, is unmanly and cowardly. No
true defender of his country should tarnish
the glorious record ol the past four years by
a moment's rashness and for so insignificant

TO THE RESCUE.
Georgians! the time has come for action ;
prompt, decisive actiou. Awake, in this hour
of gloom and despondency. Let us show
ourselves equal to the momentous crisis in
which we tiud ourselves to day.
The Confederate Government, it is now
plain, is impotent to help or protect us.—
There is no alternative but to look and work
for our own interest, and tbe welfare of our
posterity. Now is the time to act! Arise,
be up and doing !
Virginia and North Carolina aremoving.
Shall the free and sovereign people of Geor
gia, in this awful and momentous hour, re
main silent, when a dark and bloody state of
anarchy is staring us in the face ?
Now is the time ! This the hour ! Citizens
of Georgia, act while the armistice continues!
Who can picture the terrible condition of our
State if it. is allowed to expire without de
cisive steps being taken on our part, %
Listen not to the vain and delusive rumors
of foreign intervention and recognition.
They are false and have deceived us long
.- Gkn. Lee— that renowned hero —is said to
favor peace, and has stated that a further
effusion of blood is useless. Fighting now
is murder premeditated. Negotiation must
do the work.
Next Tuesday, the 2d of May, is a public
day all over the State. Let meetings be held
in every county, and let the people speak out
in thunder tones. Gov. Brown sought a
Convention, but the’ foresight of our Legis
lature was such, as to refuse to submit this
question to tbe people—where it alone be
longs. Nosv let the people move, and save
the commonwealth from a state of anarchy
and barbarian warfare.
Next Tuesday, then let there be a general
outpouring of the sentiment of the sentiment
of the people throughout the State, calling
upon the Governor, through the Legislature
for a Convention, or for a convention of the
people themselves, free from restraint or
delay. Rally Georgians! the crisis is fraught
with momentous consequences!

VIEWS OF GEff. ROB’T E. LEE.
HIS PROMISE TO DRAW HIS SWORD II DE
FEICE OF VIRGINIA AI.OYE.
The Doctrine of Slates Rights Surrendered
with the War.
The South Anxious for Peace Two
A correspondent of the New York Herald
having sought and obtained au interview
with Gen. Robert E. Lee iu Richmond, thus
reports the General’s views as expressed in
OF.N. LRK, VIRGINIA AND TIIE REBELLION.
The General's attention was directed to his
written aud spoken determination to draw
his sword in defence only ot his native State,
and tlie inquiry was raised as to 'what he
considered tlie defence of Virginia, and what
degree of deliberation he had given to that
expression. He stated that, as a firm and
honest believer in the doctrine of State rights,
he had considered his allegiance due primari
ly to the State iu which he was born and
where lie. had already resided. And; al
though he was not an advocate of secession
at Ihe outset, wlien Virginia seceded he hon
estly believed it bis duty to abide her fortune.
He opposed secession to the last, foreseeing
the ruin it was sure to entail. But when the
State withdrew from the Union lie had no.
resourse, in his views of honor and patrio
tism, but to abide her. fortunes. lie went
with her. intending to remain merely a pri
vate citizen. When he resigned his commis
sion in the United States army he had no in
tention of taking up arms in any other ser
vice, and least of all in a service antagonistic
to the United States.
His State, however, called for him, and,
entertaining tlie fixed principles he did of
State sovereignty, he had no alternative but
to accept the service to which he was called.
When he made use of the declarations that
have, been so extensively quoted of late, he
had accepted only a commission from Vir
ginia. Subsequently, when Virginia attached
herself to the Southern Confederacy, the
same political impressions impelled him to
follow' her, and when he accepted service
under the rebel government lie did so on the
principle that lie was defending his native
State. And yet, by the act of accepting
such service he was liound in honor to serve
in any part, of the confederacy where he
might be called, without reference to State
lines; aad the reconciliation with his former
avowal, if any were necessary, was found in
the fact that Virginia, standing or falling
with the other Southern States, in defending
them all he was defending the oue to which
he considered his allegiance primarily due.
THE SIGNIFICANCE OF UIS SURRENDER.
As the effect of his surrender, be was free
to say it was a severe blow to the South, hut
not a crushing blow. It w’as of military, not
political significance. I asked, w r as not that
surrender a virtual surrender of the doctrine
of State lights. “By no means,” the
General leplied. When the South shall
he wholly subdued there will then undenia
bly be a surrender ot that doctrine. But the
surrender of a single army is simply a mil
itary necessity. The army of Northern Vir
ginia was surrendered because further resis
tance on its part would only entail a use
less sacrifice of life; But that army was
merely a part of the force of the South.—
When the South shall be forced to surrender
all its forces, and return to the Union, it
indisputably,by that act,surrenders its favor
ite doctrine of secession. That principle will
then he settled by military power.”
On this question of State sovreignty the
General contends that there exists a legiti
mate casus belli. ’* In the convention that
formed the organic , law of the land, the
question of defining the relative-powers of
the States, and their relation to the general
government, was raised, but after much dis
cussion was dropped and left unsettled. It
has remained so unsettled until the present
time, This war is destined to set it at rest.
It is unfortunate that it was not settled at
the outset, but as it was not settled then, and
had to be settled at sometime, the war raised
on this issue cannot be considered treason.
If the South is forced to submission in this
contest, it of course, can ouly be looked
upon as the triumph of federal power over
State rights, and the forced annihilation of
THE SOUTH ANXtOUS FOR PEACE TW'O YEARS
With reference to the war in the abstract,
the General declared it as liis honest belief,
that peace was practicable two years ago,"
and has been practicable from, that time to
the present day whenever the General Gov
ernment should see fit to seek it, giving any
reasonable chance for the country to ‘escape
the consequences which the. exasperated
North seemed determined to Impose. The
South lias, during all this time, been ready
and anxious lor peace. They have been
looking for some word or expression of com
promise or conciliation from the North upon
which they might base a return to the ; Union.
They were not prepared, nor are they yet,
to come and beg for terms; but they were
ready to accent any fair aud honorable terms,
their own political views being considered. ..
The question of slavery did not lay in the
way at all. The best men in the South have
long beeu auxious to do away with this in
stitution, and were quite willing to-day to
6co it abolished. They consider slavery for
ever dead. But with - them, in relation to
this subject, the -question has ever been,
‘“What will you do with the freed people?”
That is the serious question to-day, and one
that cannot he winked at. It must be met
practically and treated intelligently. The
negroes must he disposed of, and, if their
disposition can he marked out, the matter of
freeing them is at once settled. But unless
sotnc humane course is adopted, based on
wisdom and Christian principles, you do a
gross wrong and injustice to the whole ne
gro race in setting them free. And it is only
this consideration that has led the wisdom,
intelligence and Christianity of the South to
support and defend the institution tip to this
And now that they have lost in the issue
they feel that they have no interest, left in
this country. It is the opinion of General
Lee that unless moderation and liberality he
exercised towards them the country will,
lose its best people. Already he says t hey
are seeking to expatriate themselves, and
numerous schemes are started lo go to
Mexico, to Brazil, to Canada, to France or
elsewhere. He is called upon frequently to
discountenance and suppress such under
takings. The couutry needs these young
men. They are its bone and sinew, its in
telligence and enterprise, its hope for the
future, and wisdom demands that no effort
