The Law ol' Cloilhing in Regard to
Volunteers received into the
J Confederate Seri ice.
Much misunderstanding seems to ex
ist among the volunteer forces called in
to the Confederate service, in relation to
the subject of clothes and clothing, and
| yet the law of Congress controlling lhe
question is quite clear, and admits of no
two constructions. Many Volunteer
Companies, and Battalions and regiments,
entered the Confederate service with the
idea, that the War Department would
supply all deficiencies of clothing among
them, and would moreover be prepared
with future supplies to meet the accruing
Wants of the soldiers; and, consequeni
ly, are now suffering in this respect, be
cause of the want ol proper information
in the beginning, which their officers and
> the State authorities should have given.
‘ The law of Congress, as set forth in the
act “to provide for the public defence,”
reads as follows, to-wit:
“Said volunteers shall furnish their
own clothes. M hen called into active
service and while remaining therein, in
stead of clothing, every non-commission
ed officer and private in any company
shall be entitled to money, in a sum equal
to the cost of clothing of a non-commis
sioned officer or private in the regular
( army of the Confederate States.”
By this law volunteers provide, at all
times their own clothing, and receive
therefor commutation in money, and in
' the passage of the law, Congress evident
ly had in view those public exigencies
that required large forces to be thrown
into the field while yet the Government
was in its infancy and stood provided
with no regular Quarter Master organiz
We have been thus explicit because it
is highly desirable the matter should be
thoroughly understood, as well among
those troops already in service, as among
those who are daily expecting to be call
ed into service. And we think it would
be well for the news-paper press gener
ally, to set forth, as we have done, the
subject in the light of the law and the
reason of the law. — Mont. Advertiser.
The New ork Iribune says: “The
West can drown or starve the lower
country, as it pleases, if a continued re
bellious obstinacy should compel the
North to accept the alternative. Cairo
is already possessed by a strong body of
troops, but a sufficient force should be
P^ ac . e .d on the river, and all trade stopped
at once. It will not be long before there
is nothing left to eat in the South-western
region. The ignorance of the raving
fanatic who edits the '.Tribune is astound
ing. He seems to know as much about
the Southern country as he does about
the mountains in the moon. We tell the
besotted fool that the South-west has an
abundance of food for its sustenance, un
til the immense crops of cereals, now
growing, shall mature; and that then the
West will find this country, which has
heretofore been its chief market for its
surplus, crops, closed against them. Our
planters have been accustomed to pur
chase corn and bacon from the North
west, simply because it has been more
profitable to devote their labor to other
products. But, threatened with an em
bargo on their customary supplies, they
have planted a crop of corn which will
yield a surplus after fully supplying the
wants of the country. The effect, there
fore, of this insane war will be to destroy
the agricultural interest of the West, in-
■ stead of starving the South.
I lhe North will soon learn from bitter
I experience that the South can neither be
staived. nor whipped out. Tne capaci-
, ties of her soil are as much underrated
as those of her people by such blind
. guides as the Tribune.—Memphis Ava

ftßT'The Baltimore American says :
• “The geographical position of Maryland
makes it necessary that we should be
passive in this contest, even if our peo
) ph* were disposed to take part in lhe se
cession movement. Any other course
must be suicidal and destructive, and in
jurious rather than beneficial to the
j South. We have the only port not
blockaded, and to keep it open will make
an outlet for Southern cotton and South
-0 ern produce that it would otherwise be
1 deprived of.”
’’ The editor misunderstands lhe spirit
L ol the Southern people if he expects
Baltimore will be the gainer by the trea
? son of her people to the South. He is
' greatly mistaken if he expects his city
? or any other city that supinely and mean
ly bows to the rule of Abe Lincoln is to
be the outport of the products of the
1 South. Rather our surplus cotton should
rot in our warehouses than its commerce
* should enrich a people false to the South,
3 false to honor, and false to themselves.
As the northern port of the Southern
Confederacy, Baltimore would have en
r joyed a commanding position. With her
3 numerous local advantages—her fine,
healthy climate, beautiful city, capital,
enterprize and extensive manufactories
—she might and would have been our
Northern port of supply—she, with
Richmond, Avould have enjoyed the
1 Southern trade which has heretofore been
divided between New York, Philadel-
I phia and Boston. But the course which
' her betrayers have adopted have depriv
-1 ed her of this brilliant prospect, and now,
instead of becoming one of the first com
’ mercial cities on the continent, she must
be content to be an insignificant and loy
al suburban town under the shadow of
the commercial emporiums of the vile
government to whom she has ignobly
succumbeed.— Savannah News.
Washington City and its Position.—
Washington city is situated on the left
bank of the Potomac river, between two
small tributaries; the one on the East
called the East branch, and the one on the
west called Rock river. The latter sep
arates it from Georgetown. The general
altitude of the city plot is 40 feet above
the river, but it is diversified by irregu
lar elevations which are taken advantage
of in the location of the different public
buildings. The plot is somewhat in the
form of an amphitheatre, the Presi
dent’s House on the west standing on
one of the sides, and the capitol on
the other. These two buildings, about
■ one mile apart, are situated in about the
centre of the whole. The former is ele
vated 44 feet above the Potomac, and the
latter 72 feet. The summit of the hill
on which the capitol stands is the com
mencement of a plain stretching to the
east, while that to the north of the Pres
ident’s house tends westward. These
topographical peculiarities give great ad
vantages for the defence of the city. —
The city plot extends 43 miles in a N.
W. and S. E., and about 23 miles in a
N. E. and S. W. direction, and covers
en area of nearly eleven squi re miles.—
; The resident population is about 55,000
; —with Georgetown 65,000.
The only means of communication
. between the city and the opposite shore
. of Virginia is by the long bridge. This
; approach is guarded all the time by bc-
• tween three and five hundred men, ca
. pable of repelling any attempt of the
enemy to cross the Potomac at that
point. These troops consist of infantry,
. artillery and cavalry.

JThercas, War exists between the Uni

, into the service of the Confederate
States without the formality and delay of
the call upon the respective States.
Sec. 1. 77/c Congress of the Confede*
rate States of America do enact, That the
President be authorized to receive into
service such companies, battalions, or
regiments, either mounted or on foot, as
may tender themselves, and he may re
quire, without the delay of a formal call
uppn the respective States, to serve for
such time as he may prescribe.
Sec. 2. Such volunteer forces as may
-be accepted under this act, except as
herein differently provided, shall be or
ganized in accordance with, and subject
to all the provisions of the act entitled
“an act to provide for the public defence,”
and be entitled to all the allowances pro
vided therein; and when mustered into
service may be attached to such divi
sions, brigades or regiments as the
President may direct; or ordered upon
such independent or detached service as
the President may deem expedient;
Provided, however, That battalions and
regiments may be enlisted from States
not of this Confederacy; and the Presi
dent may appoint all or any of the field
Sec. 3. The President shall be author
ized to commission such volunteer
forces as may be received under the pro
visions of this act, and upon the request
of the officer commanding such volunteer
regiment, battailion or company, the
President may attach a supernumerary
officer to each company detailed from
the regular army for that purpose and
for such time as the President may di
The Northern Fright.—The Black
Republican journals, in their urgent
calls to the people to take up arms against
us, manifest great fear of our fighting
qualities. In an article headed, “Wanted,
a Leader,” the New York Times, of the
25th ult., says:
From a dream of profound peace, we
awake with our enemy at our throat.—
Who shall grapple with this foe? Men
that can match his activity, quick in
stincts, and physical force. A warrior—
not a philosopher; a Cromwell—not a
Bacon or a Locke.
Many of the Cabinet, having outlived
the hot blood of youth, are vainly at
tempting to reason with his foe. As
well might they oppose a feather to
a whirlwind. Jefferson Davis has sur
rounded himself with spirits kindred to
his own. Think of offering the olive
branch to such men as Toombs and Wig
fall ! These men are seeking to put a
chain about our necks, to secure our hu
miliation by the destruction of all our
national interests. “Our money, or our
