Friday. ......... ATG. 22, mz Tin- Spirit ol tlie S'orili Under fler Recent \ jteverses. NEGRO C?ONSCRIPTS. "We alluded the other day to a subject that is worthy no little attention, to^wit r The conscrip- tion of negroes to do the drudgery of our armies. "We mentioned without reflection the number of 50,000 as what might very profitably be taken for this purpose. Further consideration leads us to believe that double tfiis number taken from the fleldand placed in the camps, would not, by any means put the Country to so much Inconvenience as the taking of one hundred thousand'white men from our already so heavily taxed citizenship. The s^Lye population of the Confederate States is within a* fraction of three and a half millions- The ustlal pfoporlron of field hands to a negro population, that is ,tbe available force reclamed in field hands, is as six to ten of the whole popula tion. To be within bounds, wfe will suppose; there are one and three-quarter millions of hands in the popula...

"Public attention has been called to an article in the " Marshall Republican " and endorsed by the ** Tyler Reporter,1* in which the conduct of Gen. Hebert, as commander of the Department of Texas, is severely Criticised. We take it for granted that the country will agree with us that this is no time for comparisons between our Gen- erals. The fciir presumption is, that each, in his sphere, is actuated by but one motive, and that is the desire to do their whole duty to the country, and whatever of omission or commission they may have made, must be attributed to the oppor- tunity which each pay have had.

The position of our army on the batlle-fMd could not have been worse. The enemy had every advantage, in position and numbers, and were, therefore successful.

Corpus Christi is defended by three insignificant guns, and a handful of men. For months the Fed- eral fleet o : tha-. coast has been making demon- strations at her harbor, endeavoring to obtain a lodgment upon shore, and threatening the destruc tion of the town. These operations have been steadily met by our people and resisted success- fully at all points. Tho other day the enemy brought up several vessels before the town to. de- stroy it. They bombarded it two days with their heavy guns, but were finally driven off by the shore battery, thus again proving that gunboats are bugaboos.
