The opinion is daily strengthening, that we

the incredulity of the Lincoln government on

hope to diplomatize themselves out of the
trouble, at least to postpone the evil day by an

consent to be trifled with in that way, or that
she will ever submit her rights and honor to the
arbitrament of other nations ; but still the hope
of Jiping able thus to influence her course, may
induce Lincoln to suppose that he has a breath

This means something, and we are inclined to
the opinion that we shall have an explanation
before w« arc many days older.
We advance this opinion with no intention
of creating an alarm. There is no cause for
such an emotion. To the contrary, w« would
welcome the day when the gallant sons of
Georgia and South Carolina shall have an op
portunity of striking a blow for independence
around their own homes and firesides. Vir
ginia and Kentucky have been almost desolat
ed by the ravages ol war, and we are willing to
bear our part iu the sacrifice. We have no
fears for the result. If the Maine, Massachu
setts and New York Yankees now on our coast
can whip Georgians aud South Carolinians,
then we deserve to be subdued. Thousands of
our brave troops stand ready to meet them and
contest every inch of ground they may attempt
to occupy. They came here for that purpose,
and arc chafing under the inaction that has
been made imperative by the timidity of the
enemy and the prudence of their own leaders.
No more welcome sound could great their ears
than the order : “Prepare to march” !
Let, then, the enemy land, if he can, and we
hope he will do so at some imperfectly defend
ed point, if he can find one, that we may have
a fair fight beyond the reach of his ships. We
will show him that Georgians love their homes
and are able to defend them.

Important Move Among the Sugar
We see by the last Planters’ Banner that pro
positions have been submitted to the sugar
planters of St. Mary, and through them to those
of the other parishes, which, if adopted and
tarried ont generally by the planters of the
State, will have a very important bearing, not
only upon the crop, but upon the industry of a
large portion of Louisiana, as well as upon the
Confederate cause. The movement originates
with Col. Pinckney C. Bethel, one of the largest
planters of St. Mary—which is the largest sugar
making parish in the State—and the Banner
supports his views.
The subject has important features, and we
give consequently, a part of Mr. Bethel’s circu
lar for the information of all parties :
The sugar crop of this year is large, and at least a
third of u will remain unconsumed at the beginning of
next sugar making. If we make full crops next year,
the surplus of tho present crop aud all that we make
in 1602 will yield but meagre profits, or will hardly pay
expenses Half of a crop next year would, beyond a
doubt, give us better profits than a full harvest, and
wott'd enable us to do more in support of our armies.
But I can discover no means of preventing the evils ol
overcropping which threaten you aud me alike, and
indirectly all the inhabitant of the sugar parishes ot
this State, but by a general agreement among all of
the sugar planters to plant but half a crop of cane.
I therefore respectfully suggest that the planters of
St. Mary, the most important sugar parish in the

LETTER FROM MACON.
Macon. Dec. 21st, 1801.
My Dear Republican:
What are the gossips and news mongers to
do, now that the assembled wisdom of the State
has disseminated itself? What are we to do
without the perusal of that interesting andre-
tiable journal the Federal Union, daily, which
gave us such full and accurate reports of the
Legislative doings? How can one get along
comfortably without reading a veto from the
“Myself, and other distinguished gentleman”
who thunders so eloquently, and I might say
demagogically lrom the Executive Department
of Georgia. It was refreshing to thirsty’ souls,
iu the bright glowing days of the mellow In
dian Summer, which has just departed, to read
daily the mighty efforts of Joseph Rex 1st, to
reduce the price of salt and to elevate the char
acter of his coast defence operations in the
minds and hearts oi the masses. With the ad
journment Joseph Rex 1st is shorn of his veto,
but doubtless we shall now have proclamations
without number, and letters of all kinds, shapes
and sizes to his Superintendants Quartermas
ters and Commissaries on the price of lard, in
digo inud, spun truck and copperas, and I say
“go it Joseph” ! we like to read your invigora
ting correspondence; but just here we must
, say we think you have backed down on the
salt business, and if you have signed the bill
in relation to Exchanges, we think you have
swallowed more than half of your famous
“Mahogany door, and balancing to a quarter oF
a cent” Bank Veto.
But speaking of backing down, what think
you of the chances oi a war between John Bull
and Run Bull, as I think our Yankee friends
should now be called. Will John Bull make
Run Bull give up Mason and Slidell, or will
the? fight ? That’s the question, and the great
question. Do you want the opinion of your
interesting correspondent ? Here it Is. The
Run Bulls will ran—they will not light. Na
poleon will come in, and in a soft pleasant way
say, you are wrong friends, you ought not to
have taken the Rebels from the English ship.
You must apologise and send Mason and Slidell
back—and they will do if. Mind what I say—
they will do it. But when they do it, the civi
lized world will pronounce them a faint-hearted
and degraded people, and treat them accord

never recovered. Alas! how sad this event is
to us all! He had been in the campaign in
Western Virginia as Aid to Gen. Henry R.
Jackson, and had behaved with great gallantry
and coolness in the battle of Green Briar River,
performing all the'arduous duties of his position
with great zeal and efficiency. He came home
and received an appointment on Major General j
Henry R. Jackson’s Staff, and was expecting to !
join his command on the coast, but au all-wise j

x propose further that those planters who wish to
see toe pi In generally adopt d, name a time, as early
as their convenience will permit, lor a sugar planters’
convention to be liolden ot Franklin, and that then and
there they draw up the form of an agreement, to be
signed by all the planters who w.ll consent to do so,
each pledging all the sugar and molasses he makes
above half an average yearly crop for the last three
years shall be shipped to bis merch in', as a donation to
the Southern Confederacy.
I further respectfully propose that at the same meet
ing we adopt measures to complete the arrangem-nts
for obtaining tbe signatures of the planters ol St. Mary
to this instrument, prepared by the convention, and to
secure, it possible, the complete c -operation of all the
other sugar parishes in the State. I also wish to sug
gest that whatever we do must be quickly done, since
the time for planting cane is last approaching.
Rut I wish it distinctly understood tha: I do not pro
pose for the planters of 8W Mary to bind themselves to
these conditions only in the event that the other sugar
parishes will assume the same obligations which I have
no doubt they will do If we take hold of the business
prompt y and in earnest.
My reasons for tho opinions above expressed are
numerous, and besides those already given, I conceive
that these obligations promptly entered into by the
planters generally would at once give an upward ten
dency to the present ruinous prices of sugar and mo
lasses, and, faithfully carried out, would give the plant
ers the coming year ample leisure to turn their atten
tion to home manufacturing of various useful articles,
such as negro clothing, leather, shoes, moccasins, and
farming utensils, and to forming combinations and ob
taining machinery for refining sugar and converting
molasses into rum. The good sense of the planters gen
erally will suggest to them various other reasons which
1 have not cow time to enumerate.
P. C. Bethel.
There can be little doubt, we think, that it
w ill be for the interest of the country generally
if our planters, both sugar and cotton,diversify
their pursuits in such a way os to make them
selves more independent of foreign resources
than they hitherto have been for most of the
articles which'they require for family and plan
tation use. To manufacture such articles at
home is a great disideratum under present cir
cumstances ; but to do it requires combination,
or association of capital and labor, and if the
attention of planters be devoted exclusively to
agricultural pursuits, as heretofore, this cannot
be done. Every movement that looks to the
encouragement of domestic manufactures, we
regard as a highly favorable and healthy indica
tion of the public mind.
There is no reason why wc should be so de
pendent as we have been upon the outside
world for almost every thing that wc require in
the shape of manufactures, and iu times of
peace ; but now that we are shut out from the
commerce of the world, aud are likely to remain
so lor an indefinite period, domestic manufac
tures become trebly important, absolutely es
sential to our self-existence as a people.

same county. Gen. Humphrey Marshall with a
large force is at Prestonsburg, Floyd county.
There is great excitement in all the Blue

sent hastily for reinforcements.

one of the most rabid war journals, Las changed
its tone since the battle of Manassas Plains.
That paper says:
It cannot be denied that we are disappointed 1
at the formidable aspects the rebellion has as- |
earned. We thought to have suppressed it in a ,
few weeks, and supposed the South would |
yield at once before the enthusiastic rush of the
Union men to arms in support of the Govern
ment. We have made a mistake in our esti
mate of the strength of the rebels ; have we
made another in the confidence we have placed
in our own ? Is it true that the South carries
with her the sources of certain failure, or shall
we not rather be compelled to yield to her de
mands, not as a matter merely of policy and
self interest, but of sheer necessity ?
Is not the struggle assuming new features,
and instead of being a contest for the preser
vation of the Constitution, is it not growing
into a war of subjugation, in which the course
first marked out by the Government will be
abandoned by the necessity of events ? Is there
any longer a reasonable hope, after the bitter
strife ot Slates and the sheading of fraternal
blood, that the Union can ever be restored to
its former position ?

This bulk of opinion seems to be that tbe
Union is dissolved for a time; that the Gulf
States (subjugation being admitted to be out
of the question) will not come back for the
present. Men who voted for Lincoln say thi6 ;
and it is painful to hear gentlemen coniess their
willingness to “ let them slide.” Among those
who are in the sliding mood are muny who
own the great factories which loom np all
through the towns of his county, conspicuous
as the churches, and jnst now quite as silent
as on days not given to labor. The owners of
these factories found their chief market at the
south. I find everywhere a distrust of the fu
ture, and a fear of poverty and long suffering.

the seventy-eight prisoners, whose arrest in

before the military board, and after an investi

devotion to the Confederacy, aud claimed that
the organization contemplated no more crimi
nal intent than to insure them against the hos
tilities #f an .invading army. The leaders, it was
evident, contemplated criminal ulterior designs,
but their followers were in the dark as to what
was proposed. They forthwith formed them
selves into a company,elected their officers from
those who had arrested and escorted them as a
guard from their native county, and were sworn
into the service of the Confederate States “ for
and during the war.” The Journal says that
the scene which loliowed their release, the
touching remarks of the Governor, and their
solemn enlistment into the Confederate service
was a very affecting and impressive one.

The Mason-Si idol I affair in Bnglaad appears
to have assumed a belligerent and menacing
aspect. Tbe truth is, that if the British Cabi

a war with us, it is only by an inflexible adher

foreigu war. Our lake aud rivc-r defences should
be at once seen to, aud active measures taken

If Great Britain refuses to sell ns saltpetre and
arms we should prohibit the exportation to
England of breadstuff*, which she will more
need than we do her war material.
(From the Philadelphia Inquirer.}
Notwithstanding all this bluster of the news
papers, we do not believe there is any more pur
pose on the part of the English Government to
rush headlong into a war with the United States
than there is on our part to provoke a war with
England. A couflict betweeu LwtASuch powers
is no holiday diversion

THE MATTER IN CONGRESS*.
Mr. Yallandigham, of Ohio, has introduced
the following preamble and resolution in the
House of Representatives:
Whereas, The Secretary of the Navy has re
ported to this House that Captain Charles
XVilkes, in command of the San Jacinto, an
armed public vessscl of the United Srates, did,
on the 8th of November, lSGl.on the high seas,
intercept the Trent, a British mail steamer, and
forcibly remove therefrom James M. Mason
and John Slidell, disloyal citizens, leading con
spirators, rebel enemies and dangerous men,
who, with their suites, were on their way to
Europe to promote the cause of the insurrec
tion, claiming to be ambassadors from the se
ceded Confederate States; and
Whereas, The Secretary of the Navy has fur
ther reported to this house that the prompt and
decisive action of Captain Wilkes on tiiis oc
casion, merited and received the emphatic ap
proval of Lite Department, and moreover, in a
public letter, lias thanked Captain Wilkes for
the acts ; aud
Whereas, This House, on the first day of the
session, did purpose to tender the thanks of
Congress to Captain Wilkes for his brave,
adroit and patriot conduct, in the arrest of the
traitors James M. Mason and John Slidell,
Whereas, Further, on i he same day, this
House did request the President to confine the
said James M. Mason and John Slidell in the
cells o/1 the eonvie,od felons uutil certain mil
itary officers of the United Slates, captured and
held by Lite so called Confederate States,
should be treated as prisoners of war, therefore
Resolved, As the sense of this House, it is the
duty of the President to now firmly maintain
this stand then taken, approving and adopting
the act oi Capt. Wilkes, in spite oi any menace
or demand of the British Government, aud that
this House pledges its lull support to him in
upholding now the honor and vindicating the
courage of the Government and people of the
United States against a foreigu power.
Mr. Vallandigham moved "the previous ques
tion. They had heard the first growl of the
British Lion. It remained to be seen who would
Mr. Fenton, of New York, (Rep.) hoped that
the resolution would be referred to the Com
mittee on Foreign Affairs.
Mr. Vallandigham remarked that a former
resolution, approbatory of Capt. Wilkes, was
passed without being so -referred. He (Val-
landigham) had offered this resolution in good
faith, and would stand by it.
The House then refused to second the demand
for the previous question.
Mr. Fenton again moved that the preamble
and resolution be referred to the Committee on
The motion was agreed lo by yeas 109, nays
[From the New York Herald.]
Canada in the Event of War with Eng
land.—In the event of England, in her folly,
declaring war against the United States, the an
nexation of the British North American posses
sions, to which Mr. Seward looked fotward in
his speeches made before the present adminis
tration came into office, will inevitably follow.
Between Vermont and Minnesota we could pour
a hundred and fifty thousand troops into Cana
da iu a week, and overrun tbe province in three
weeks more. It would take a longer lime to
capture the citadel of Quebec, but still time
would do tbe work. In this invasion we should
be aided by a large portion of the inhabitants,
two-thirds of whom are in favor of annexation
to the United States. The press of tbeeountry
may* have led to a contrary opinion, but the
press by no means represents the general feel
ing on the subject. In a very short time we
could, if required, bring a million of men into
the field to secure the conquest. And vhat re
sistance out of Quebec could the British Gov
ernment offer to the tide of invasion ? None
that could not be easily overcome, even bv a
fraction of the force we should bring inu, opera
tion. Her army in all North America is insig
nificant, her fortifications few and far between,
aud her frontier totally unguarded. Canada
would, therefore, be at our mercy from the day
of our crossing the boundary line.
Meanwhile, in view of the possible rupture
with Great Britain, let Cougress abolish our
treaties with Canada, from wbicii she has been
deriving such great commercial advantages, and
let us isolate ourselves from the province with
The Cincinnati Commercial says that General
ShermaD, while laboring under insanity,
“frightened the Union men of Louisvillealmost
out of their wits, by the most astouniiD" re
presentations of the overwhelming force of
Buckner, and the assertion that Louisville could
not be delended.” That was why, we suppose,
Prentice became so alarmed and packed up his
traps and sent them over to Indiana.— Louisville
Gen. Shields has accepted Lincoln’s appoint
ment of Brigadier General, and is on his way
from California to Washington.
