The apples are ripe in the orchard, The work of the reaper is done, And the golden woodlands redden In the blood of the dying sun. At the cottage door the grandsire Sits pale in his easy chair, While the gentle winds at twilight Playß with his silver hair. A woman is kneeling beside him: A fair young head is press'd, In the first wild passion of sorrow, Against his aged breast. And far from over the distance The falt'ring echoes come, Of the flying blast of trumpet And the ratling roll of drum. And the grandsire speaks in a whis- pei—"The end no man can see -. Bu...

WTTHEVUiLB DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : : : : : FEB. 12, 1864. Shoemakers and Shoemaklng. This is certainly an age of extortion and speculation. The principle has involved every class of society, and permeates every branch of industry. From the ragged, dirty faced little boy that vends chestnuts and goober-peas by the pint to half famished soldiers on the cars, to the well fed grocery merchant who takes from the aforesaid soldiers' wives a months wages for two pounds of butter or half a bushel of meal—from the old woman with her basket of eggs to the stock-jobber that makes his hundreds of thousands at A clip—from the retailer of villiauous "dead shot" whiskey to the Government contractor, who prefers "dead shot" whiskey to the shots of the enemy—all, all have caught the contagion and are infected with the mania. But we doubt if in the whole catalogue there can be found Much a god-forsaken, christ-less set of extortioners as the Shoemakers, (we don't mean all but a very large majority of the...

PUNISHMEMT BY FIRE —The New York Daily "News," under this head, editorializes on the burning of houses on the Missippi river to punish the people for firing on steamers by guerrillas, and closes by saying: Such worse than vandal acts neither deter the guerrillas, nor d& they strengthen the attachment to the Government. These roving bands have no property on the river to lose; and every house fired by Federal soldiers swells their ranks with bold and desperate men, filled with revenge against those who have burned their homes and turned their wives and little ones on the cold charity of the world, without a roof to cover them. If this war is to continue—if brother is to still meet brother, father meet son in deadly strife, and in blood find carnage, with their attendant horrofs, in heaven's name let us be spared the recital of any more of this Indian mode of warfare, against women and children, forced to leave their burning dwellings and their path lighted by a midnight c...

From the Southern Punch. Truth If not Poetry. Some ladies love the carpet nights Who wear the finest lace, The carpet nights the ladies love Who wear the sweetest face. Posterity, will love the men Who turn the Yankee flanks, And cry: huzza! the jewels were The privates in the ranks! Our carpet nights in every town, Like buterflies are seen, They glory in an artist sketch— A fancy battle scene! Though coarsely clad the soldier scorns The gilded useless blanks— Ah! who would win the ladies'smiles? The privates in the ranks! Then here's a health to every man Who, through the snow and rain, Shall march with musketin hisliand, Or drag a cannon train. And here's a groan for every'knight.' Whose precious form arrayed is In gray and gilt, to captivate, Susceptible young ladies. MORGAN'S MEN. —Contributions fcr the purpose of mounting Morgan's men pour in from almost every place.

You have won glorious victories over vastly more numerous hosts. You have cheerfully borne privations and toils to which you were unused.

For the Dispatch. The Agreement of our Enemies. It can hardly fail to be useful to keep before the people the past and present declarations of leading men in and out of the Congress of the United States, more properly designated Lincolndom. Before the war the distinguished W. L. Garrison made public use of the following language. "Know that the subversion of the American Union is essential to the triumph of justice, the deliverance of the oppressed, the vindication of the brotherhood of the race. It was conceived in sin and brought forth in iniquity." It is well known that Garrison was a lecturer in the North, and uniformly greeted as the efficient man in all Northern movements for the purpose of exciting and inflaming the public mind against slavery.— And yet, how many are to be found in the South, who this day believe, that disunionisin was only talked of in the South. How many still believe, that the Lincolnites are the real Union party and are conducting the present wicked war a...

that the rams will also be at once liberated. It is this fact, in all probability (says the Atlanta Appeal) that has caused the sudden .jump in the Confederate loan, as it gives promise of an early opening of one or more of our ports, whereby cotton may be got out in safety, wherewith to meet this loan.— Petersburg Express. WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : : : : : FEB. 19, 18G4, Cheering. While the Yankee government is compelled to offer large bounties in order to get its soldiers to "face the music," our men are everywhere reenlisting for the war. Brigade after Brigade is wheeling into line, and the determination is expressed to continue to tight just so long as there is a Yankee foot polluting the soil of the South. The danger of subjugation is now over and the thanks of the country are due to our noble soldiery for the courageous stand which they have taken. The croakers and grumblers at home who are living in comfortable ease, should hide their heads for very shame, when thoy see ...

A NUT FOR THE AKOMTIONIVTS.— In July last, while our army was falling back from Gettysburg, and while a Wagon train and a portion of the Donaldsonville Artillery, from Louisiana, were passing through Newcastle, the Yankees made a dash into the place and captured some of the wagohs and a section of the artillery. As soon as the capture was made, several citizens, women as well as men, turned out, and with naws and axes, crippled the wagons as much as possible. Among other prisoners was a faithful negro belonging to a captain in the artillery. While this was going on, a part of Gen, Imboden's command, in the neighborhood, hearing of it, dashed into town, recapturing all that was lost, and taking prisoners and a section of artillery. As soon as our men appeared, this negro approached an officer, telling him what the citizens had done but a few minutes before. The captain requested him lo point out those who were most active in their efforts to injure us. He immediately pointed to one s...

The French and Mexico. The vigorous manner in which the Krench are prosecuting the war in Mexico does not look like an intention of giving up that country. Napoleon is not the man to enter rashly upon great enterprises, or to abandon in a huray any of his undertakings. If there is one feature in hie remarkable character more distinct than any other, it is the tenacity with which he holds on to his purRoses. He has gone too far in the [exican business to turn back, and if Maximilian does not accept the throne of that country, it will be a French province all the same, the Monroe doctrine to the contrary notwithstanding. France however can never mainfain her position in Mexico unless t he Southern Confederacy establishes its independence. If Louis Napoleon has not felt well assured of that result, he would never have invaded Mexico. We may rest satisfied that we have his best wishes, and, if necessary, we think it probable we shall have something more. It will be a matter of extreme d...

The proofs thicken daily that there is but one road to peace and our independence. The sword, so far as we are concerned, can only bring peace, and the sooner we makeup our minds to rely exclusively upon the "sword of the Lord and of Gideon" the better for us. We must fight and that too with the desperation which belongs to men whose sacred hearthstones are sought to be wrenched from them. We must fight not simply because our negroes and lands are in danger of confiscation, but to defend the honor and purity of our females, which when weighed «n the balances, is acknowledged by every true man, to be dearer than life itself. We must fight or the surging waves of European infidelity, and Yankee fanaticism, will overwhelm us...

For the Dispatch •'Accursed be the American Union, as a stnpendious republican imposture! Accursed be it as the most nubtilo and atrocious compromise ever made to gratify power and selfishness ! Accursed be it as a libel on dcmoci*acy, and a bold assault on Christianity! Accursed be it from the foundation to the roof, and may there soon not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. Henceforth, the watchword of every uncompromising Abolitionist, of every friend of God and liberty, must be, both in a religious and political sense—No Union with slaveholders!" Here is another effusion from the mind of the popular Northern lecturer, W. L. Garrison, for many years devoting his time and talents, to the service of Abolitionism and by consequence, to the results which have cast a cheerless gloom over this land.of the free and home of the bravo. True Garrison's sentiments were over and over again repudiated by thousands of his fellow citizens, but the present vindictive w...

DUNN, of Washington County as a candidate for the office of Commissioner of Board of Public Works, for the South Side District of Virginia. Work, for All. It is a mistaken notion entertained by some person that the soldier must do everything in the way of driving back the hosts of the vile invader. The soldier is indeed called upon to perform a very important part, but unaided he can do nothing. Food and raiment must be provided for him, a failure to do this by those whose duty it is, must of necessity ho ruinous to our cause. Our soldiers arc brave, and as patriotic as brave, but courage and patriotism will avail but little where there is a lack of bread. Wo have never thought that there was any real danger to be apprehended that the South would be starved into subjection, and we are of the opinion that the seeming scarcity of provisions arises from a want of confidence in the currency.

For th,e People. MR. EDITOR: — Your publication of »h« resolutions of Congress appointing the Bth of April as a day of humiliation before God, should meet with the cordial and christian approbation of every citizen of the Confederacy. The example of President Davis in relation to the supremacy of God, is happily sustained by our representatives in Congress. It remains to be seen how far the people of the Confederacy will fail in a corresponding recognition of Divine supremacy in the temporal government of the nations of this world. For ourselves let us be concerned, lest our neglect of the appointed day of fasting and humiliation, be not "a rock of offence" before God. No man or woman of a right mind and a right spirit will permit the Bth of April to pass, without the highest and holiest emotions, which can arise out of the soul that is touched with a knowledge of the supremacy of Jehovah. A great national extremity is upon us. Freedom or bondage awaits us. But there are so many of ...
