It is the policy of our government, as long as the blockade continues, to discourage the move ments of cotton to the seaports. For some time, then we shall make nothing by the carriage of the present cotton crop. The planters generally will make abundance of grain, and we shall have but little more of breadstuff's to carry. We cannot reasonably hope for a revival of business before the end of the year. By that time the necessities of the European world —the success of our arms and the greatly increased burthens upon the people of the l nited States, will, it is believed, produce a great change for the better in our condition. In the mean time, our stockholders will suffer in com mon with the rest of the people, but they will bear patiently burthens necessarily im posed upon them as the price of establishing our independence. Considering the malig nant hatred of the North toward the South, their mortification at defeat on the field of battle, and their well grounded fear that their section will be overshadowed by the Southern Confederacy, peace is not to bo expected at an early period. The determi nation of the North to pursue and subju gate the South will continue until sufficient time shall have elapsed to convince the world that the South cannot be conquered. That we should be able to carry this conviction to to the people of the North —no matter what may be the cost of blood and treasure—can not be doubted for a moment. But although the blessings of peace and amity with all nations may be postponed, we believe that the Government of the Uni ted States will be compelled to abandon the blockade before the first day of January next. That Government will find it more difficult to carry on their war of invassion, than the Confederate States will find it to maintain their position, and when their peo ple shall see, as they surely will notwith standing their present blindness, that the vast appropriations of money and insatiable calls for “grand armies” of men by their despotic rulers, are likely only to impose upon them and their children for generations, to come, an immense public debt and conse quent heavy taxation, the small voice which has already been heard in their Congress for peace, will swell into a loud demand that the Confederate States shall be acknowledg ed to be a free, sovereign, and independent nation. , All the Banks —all the railroad compan ies—all the men—all the women—and even the childreu within the Confederate States, (save the disgraced few in Western Virginia and Etst Tennessee,) have already given, and daily give, the most indubitable proofs of firm resolve to support and aid our gov ernment with their money and their lives.— To such a host putting their shoulder to the wheel, and humbly supplicating the Al mighty Ruler of events for help, there never can come disgrace or defeat. The confidence of the Board iu the value of our railroad is unimpaired. Although dividends may, for a while, be suspended, it is certain that our business, when the tide of affairs shall turn, will yield larger profits than auy we have hitherto made. A general retrenchment in salaries has been ordered to meet the exigencies of the times. The road has now in operation—o6s miles, and is compelled, with the exception of the Chattahoochee Bridge, opposite Eu faula, the construction of which has beeu delayed by unexpected natural difficulties. This magnificent road as soon as peace re turns, next to the Central will be the most valuable railroad property in Georgia, and continue to increase iu value from year to vear, as it developes the productive resources of the great cotton region it permeates. ‘lt, is in splendid order, and has always been, under the efficient and prudent direction.-r* R. K. Cuyler, Esq., President; Virgil [ers* General Superintendent and Engin^r, Official Report of Committee. To the Mayor and Con net/ and Citizens of Macon : Asa Committee lately appointed by yout selves upon tlie special mission of visiting Virginia, in search of the wounded and uiis -ling of our gallant corps, the Macon Guards, recently engaged in the battle of Manassas, we beg briefly to report the result of our la bors : As already intimated by brief telegraphic dispatches transmitted to you, early after our arrival upon the late field of carnage, and Southern victory, we found much less mortal injury inflicted upon our gallant and heroic Macon Boys than we had feared or expected to find, although sad the report (hit truth and reality compel us to make.— The loss of even <>uc man of such a Spartan band is sadly to be lamented. The Macon Guards under Cupt. Lamar, were among the very first to take position and engage the enemy on the day of battle, and occupied a post which subjected them to the musketry and a tillery shots of the main and flanking columns of the enemy.— This position they bravely held under the command of Col. Bartow, pouring their dead ly vollies into the ranks of the foe uutil strategy compelled them to retire before au overwhelming force of the enemy’s flank.— In this first engagement the Guards were stationed in the front border of a clump of pine saplings too small for protection. We visited this grove and viewed the several spots marked by the blood of our gallant young martyrs. It was here that Lamar, and Allen, and Jones, and Garcy, fell. It was here that many others of the Guards re ceived their wounds, and here their gallant commander, Bartow, was wounded, and had his horse shot from under him. On looking through this grove, and be holding the signs of the enemy’s shot, it seems miraculous how a single man escaped. The trees are literally riddled with musket and cauuon balls, yet our boys stood their ground and fought like veterans until or dered to retire from strategetic policy. But this was not the last of the Macon Guards in that great battle. They met the enemy again and again and were among those who [finally charged upon and captured the ene -1 my’s batteries, and turned the tide of battle against the fiendish invaders. From all information too much cannot, be said for the unflinching bravery and patri otic valor of our noble little band the Macon Guards. Let us feel proud of them. Their chival rous deeds have honroed our city and our State in the glorious struggle for Southern independence and won for them laurels im perishable, and a name as enduring as the granite mountain of Georgia. As already stated, four of the Guards were killed. Two were taken prisoners—viz : S. B. Buckley aud R. S. Gray. Os those wounded, wo find the names of 11. J. Peter, E. J. Collins, Charles Gamble, Wm. F. Blue, Geo. McLeond, A. McKennon, W. C. Bearden, T. 11. Christian, W.C. M. Dun son, Joseph M. Goff, M. A. Malsby, >V m. B. Woods, E. P. Wilcox. Collins was severely wounded, a Minnie bail entering the point of the left shoulder and escaping on the back near the spine, leaving his arm completely paralyzed. He is at Culpepper Hospital, well treated and eared for, and will probably recover. Pe ter is badly wounded—the hall entering his thigh and lodging at tlie bone—he is at Charlotteville, well treated, and may possibly recover. Gamble is wounded iu both thighs, a ball piercing one thigh, and anoth er ball scaling deeply the other thigh ; he is with a private family in Richmond, and will soon recover. Blue is also at Rich mond, and had a ball through the calf of one leg. McLeod, wounded in the head, seri ously, is at Charlottsville. McKeuuon was shot in the neck, the ball coining out through the mouth ; he is rapidly recovering. Bearden and Goff were both slightly woun ded in the arm. Poe was wounded in the wrist. Wood is slightly wounded in the shoulder. These last named are all at Char lotteville, and will soon report for duty. Christian, Duncan, Malsby and Wilcox, were but slightly wounded, and will soon be ready for service. A number of others were also slightly wounded, and nearly all had their clothes pierced by one or more inus ket balls of the euemy. Their gallant Cap tain, Lamar, was also struck with a ball, but declined to report himself wounded. We found him in diligent search for his woun ded and missing men, who had been scat tered and carried to the hospitals at differ ent points, and to the farm houses in the country. Your Cammittee cannot for’jear to point with emphasis to the marked inter est aud kindness exhibited by Captain La mar, for the welfare and comfort of his men. He seemed to feel his responsibility, and nobly endeavored to discharge the trust committed to him. Likewise, we cannot omit to mention, with praise and commendation, the name of Lieut. Wilcox, who acted so valiantly upon the battle field, and afterwards engaged himself so assiduously in looking up, and providing comfortable quarters for his wounded men. Let us remember him with feebugs of obli gation and gratitude ! Our wounded friends are all under good medical treatments, aud are kindly takeu care of. Many of them are at private houses, and are furnished with every com fort ; aaid those at hospitals are likewise well cared for. We found a number of the wounded short of the necessary clothes, and amply supplied them. Some of them likewise had no pocket mon ey, and we supplied their purses for them out of our Macon fund. Wfl were at the camp of the Macon Guards, and found the few that were left on duty in fine health and good spirits. AVe visited the camp of the Sparks Guards, and found them in line health, and truing “double quick” in all their duties.— It. is a fine Company, and will do to bet on iri a fight. They drill admirably well. We also visited Maj. Hardeman’s Battalion, find ing the boys in excellent health, aud clamo rous for a fight. They have the nicest camp aud the liveliest set of fellows that we saw on the field, aud do, by far, the best battal ion drilling. Upon the whole our Macon boys are nobly doiug their duty and arc highly worthy all the confidence we may repose in them. Let ua continue to supply them with the necessary equipments, and they will do honor to us and our glorious cause of Southern Independence. J.

HOLT, ED, D. HUG BENIN, A. E. COCHRAN. Futhe iM a liter- of tlic onfcdcrate Stale*. On the 4th day of July last, a Convention of Cotton Planters was held in the eitv of Macon, Georgia. The States of Gergia and Florida were pretty well represented. Ala bama and South Carolina to a very limited extent only. As the President of that Con vention, 1 adopt this method of presenting to the public the claims of the enterprize in which it is engaged. The representation be ing conlined to a few States, it was not. deemed advisable, nor indeed did we feel that we were authorized by so small a dele gation to undertake a great deal, but from such a stand point, we were able to survey the vastness of the field before us, anti to appreciate something of the benefits which might result to the cause of our country, from an assemblage of wise and experienced men, brought into conference from every portion of the Southern Confederacy. We could not, at any rate, consent to aban don an enterprise which had been so wisely conceived, and which to our minds seemed capable of accomplishing so much good, mere ly because, in its inception, it bad not met with universal favor. It was determined, therefore to meet again in the city of Macon, Georgia, on the 15th day of October next, and in the mean time, by presenting tho subject to the public, to endeavor to enlist in the movement the great body of the planters of the South. I come now to ask of this class who hold in their hands the vast productive wealth ot* the South, a due consideration of this ques tion, and a full representation in the next; Convention from every State in the Con federacy. I know that the history of popu lar conventions may discredit their efficiency for usefulness; the want of earnest co-opcra tion, and their subserviency to personal schemes, too often converting their delibera tions into farces, and their actions ending iu fruitless resolutions. Yet, after all, they afford the most practicable mode of ascertain ing and consolidating the opinions of the people. In this Convention there will be no indi vidual schemes to foster, no ulterior designs to accomplish, but an honest, undivided ef fort to provide the ways and means of sup porting the Government in its present extra ordinary emergency. It may, if the people wish it, be a Mass Convention. I would that it could be, and I therefore invite all who can do so, to meet with us. Rut the ques tions to be considered will be grave, deep, broad; involving ou the one hand, the wants of the government, and on the other, the wisest mode of applying to those wants tho material aid within the control of the people. Impulse and enthusiasm are good in their I place, but they must be directed iu wisdom lin planning, and sustained by uncompromis ing purpose iu executing the schemes which. | may be devised. To this end, we hope to sec a chosen dele gation from each Congressional District, as well as from each State at large. Let the delegates be men who have the confidence of their constituency, as well as the ability to devise a plan of aid to the Government, that will be acceptable and adopted, and let them come up prepared to make the largest pledges of support and recommend the plans of making our means available. We do not propose any assumption of pow ers which shall conflict in the least, with the constituted authorities of the country, nor shall we arregate to ourselves wisdom equal to theirs, in managing the great inter ests committed to their hands. The Presi dent and Congress have no assurance of the unanimity with which the people, all over the States, are prepared to sustain and co-operate with them, yet in the multitude of counsel there is safety; and in a large and intelligent assemblage, voluntarily em anating from the agricultural interest of the laud, there will be found much to encourage the hearts, and strengthen the hands of those who are directly charged with the adminis tration of the Government. Planters of the South ! Your country is engaged in a struggle which involves every thing worth living for. Let us come togeth er and if need be, lay our all upon its altars. If we fail in this contest all is lost; if wo succeed, the sacrifice will be small compared with the ruin which awaits us in defeat. — Rut there is no such word as “fail” iu the lexicon of a people united and determined, and lighting for such a cause as ours. J here is a spirit among our people against which the waves of Northern Vandalism will beat in vain. Every dollar of our property, and every man and boy from sixteen to seventeen, shall be pledged to the support of the gov ernment. When the muskets and rifles and *hot guns are exhausted, we will, in gueril la bands meet the foe with club axes and batcher knives, and even if driven from our homes, when our pursuers come to gather the fruit-', of “ subjugation,” they will find ,-iomrht but the graves and the bleaching bones of a people, who had chosen death rather than yield to their dominion. r J here is no hope for us but iu victory, and God be lli” our helper, we shall achieve that. The shortest and most economical way through this war is iu a toll consecration of everything to its prosecution. Let the proc lamation go out to the world, from this Lon mention, that the tender has been made to the Government, and let the assurance be repeated to our President, that none of his •hafts shall be dishonored while there is a man or a dollar left.
