BfPECTS OF A SYSTEM OF OPPRESSION U_^ OK Till MORALS AND JUDGMENTS OF fll _OPPRESSORS. Those who, for a year or two past, have had access to Southern newspapers, the messages of public officers, and the sermons and speeches of distinguished men, have been astonished at their moral perversity—their want of truthfulness in the statement oi facts, and their shocking libels on their Northern brethren. Their justification of perjury on the part of officials, is also wonderful. Davis, Stevens, Mason, Slidell, Beeokinridge, and ten thousand more-—every manv who was in Congress j every man who ever accepted a commission of any kind under the General Government j every man who ever sat in a State Legislature, or held a State office, swore solemnly to support the Constitution of the United States. And yet, see the traitors, and the treason justified. Contemplate the perjured multitude. It is utterly _astounding. . . _. And not only do we find this defection in morals in those who profes...

DIRECT TIXATIOB " Taxation" is not a pleasant word. People do not like ifc. But there are circumstances when a Christian and loyal people will willingly bear even an unusual and large burden of this kind, rather than risk a greater evil. The dangers of an expanded paper currency are so great and startling that it cannot be depended on for relief in the present emergencies of our country. The " material aid" must be had. Now the practical question before the people, and which our legislators have to meet, is this : Have the people of the loyal States; the ability to 'pay $150,000 jOOO' or $200,000,000 per annum, in the way of taxation, to preserve the finances and trade of the nation from embarrassment? We may Joe aided in answering this question by reference to what Great Britain did under somewhat similar circumstances , and in doing this we quote from The World , which says ; la: the years 1811 to 1815 the population of Great Britain was about 12,000,000, and the resourc...

_GRBAf 'GENERALS ARE _SlOf II BR1NGM ¦ ON A BATTLE. There is much complaint about the slowness of our army movements. If our fireside, editorial, and Congressional Generals ha_,d only the command of our armies, one might soon; expect battles by e score, and a victory at every fight_^ and peace eonquered*in a'month. It is easy for the ignorant to talk, and for aiiy man to be brave when far from danger. But the knowing, the wise, and the truly brave, are always cautious. _NAPdtEON remarked at St. Helena:— " Generals are rarely found eager to give battle; they choose their positions, establish themselves, consider their combinations, but then commences their indecision; nothing is so difficult, and at the same time soiimportant, as to know when to decide." Wellington said:—" The fault with most commanders, however brave, is backwardness in taking the last step to bring on a battle, especially when armies are large; arisinjg from deep moral anxieties, and, after all, the uncerta...

TEMPERANCE IN TIE ARMI .. Tee-totalism is unhappily, not the habit of all our _officers and men. But neither is drunkenness the habit of all. Temperance, is the Trie; and inebriety tbe exception ; but al&sj the exceptions are_.vastly numerous. The amount of drinking is very great, and the effects are deeply harmful. Drunkenness caused the loss of the battle at Bull Run. No man who drinks liquor even moderately, should be entrusted with a command. . We would malce the approach toward an habitual tasting an utter disqualification for the- holding of an office in 'he army. Such a rule would deprive us of _maoy Generals, Colonels, and other commanders, and some of them brave and skillful men too; but still the army would be better without them. Drunkenness, however, though a great evil in the army, is not so common as some men seem to delight in proclaiming. _, ,The Hon. Amasa Walker, of Massachusetts, publishes a letter -in.ihe Journal of Temperance, in which he says: "...

A _. SOUTniKK _COSFESSIQN The American Presbyterian has a copy of _the Southern Presbyterian of Columbia, S. C, under date of December 7th. Among'Other remarks relative to the contents of the paper, we have this : " From various ecclesiastical* reports we gather a number of interesting;facts. One thing is -clear—the Thornwell doctrine that the * _5 Church »has _^nothing to do with secular matters, is now utterly repudiated in South Carolina. One-half of the male membership of the churches in South Carolina Presbytery are reported by the Synod to be in. the army; and but for their female members, their Sabbath Schools would have <to be abandoned. In Bethel Presbytery, in the same _f_*ynod, the attendance on the-services of the sanctuary has been greatly reduced by the war. Efforts ;for the evaogeli-zation of the colored popularton , ' of one blood with.<us/.-say .-the Synod, are -spoken of as vigorously and successfully) prosecuted. There is nothing of the proud...

Three Hundred Copies of the Banner were ordered, last week, for the soldiers, to be sent for two months. We trust the order will be made permanent. We send a number of packages, of ten to forty, to different regiments. Will not the soldiers' friends, and especially those who possess the Christian's heart, greatly multiply these bequests. The men delight to get the Banner; and .we can plead for them the more importunately, because we make no pecuniary gain thereby. We furnish Banners at the rate of one and one-fourth cents each; that is, we send J"OBTT copies for fifty cents weekly, and at the same rate for any large number. To the Army of the Potomac packages go by Adams' Express, free of charge—a gratuity thus given to the cause by that enterprising Company, ind an incitement to Christians to send the paper. The charge made by us pays the paper-maker and pressman. Our own services, the quota of office rent, type setting, &c, &e. is a gratuity. We then, again, en...
