f YTHEVILLE DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : : : MARCH 18, 1864, The Future of the War. It is well that the people of the Confederacy should understand how fhe war is to be conducted in the future by the abolitionists. Heretofore rhey have pretended to be fighting tor a restoration of the Union, and ''Father Abraham" with honeyed <vords expressly prepared by the arch fiend Seward, has implored the rebels to return to their allegiance. Uut now the programme is changed and, as was shown by the last "on to Richmond," no means however diabolical are to be spared to crush the rebellion. The plan of Dahlgreen which thanks to a merciful God was completely frustrated, was one of the most blood thirsty that ever entered into the mind of any man or set of men. To burn and sack the city, ;».nd murder the President, were ainong the least of the atrocities to be committed, for lovely woman was to come in for a share of brutality.— This too in the nineteenth century *nd by a people claiming to be c...

declarations. Now we have every reason to believe they meet with his hearty appro.val. His proclamations from under his own hand—the conduct of military operations by officers of his own choice clearly demonstrate his readiness to carry out the awful denunciations to the utmost extremity of Satanic vengence. In the commencement of the war we heard no alarming antagonism in relation to slavery. The pious zeal of Lincoln was weighed down by the oppressive obligations of the oath he had taken "to see that the laws were faithfully executed." Yet at the name time he could witness, with unmoved composure, the most deliberate inovations and violations of the constitutional rights of slave holders, and the base suspicion that his administration was obnoxious to them, resulted in such hasty vindication of his suposed supreme right to coerce by armed force the first movement of seccession against his administration, that war was inevitable. Doubtless the success under Jackson's administration...

Brown, of this State in his Message to the Legislature which he has just convened in Extra session, takes strong grounds against the late action of Congress. He contends that it has shaken the confidence of the people in its justice or competency; that the compulsory funding of seven hundred millions in forty days, at a less rate of interest thau that pledged on the face of the notes, resembles repudiation and bad faith; that secret sessions to discuss important measures, is a blighting curse, and convenient...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : : : MARCH 25, 1804. A Word to Farmers. In ft very short time your sons and brothers who have gone forth in defence of your rights,will be called on to exchange -Winter quarters for the Geld of strife. They have had , a few months of comparative rest, but the time for action has arrived and the fighting will shortly be renewed. We cannot doubt that our noble soldiers arc ready to meet the enemy, and none but the faint-hearted fear the result. While the Yankees have sometimes fought well, they have certainly never fought better than our men and in nearly every instance where a battle has been fought the enemy have largely outnumbered. They have never gained a signal victory with equal numbers and every success of theirs might be traced to overwhelming numbers. These things being true what chance has the North now to subjugate us. If it could not be done when they all agreed, can it be accomplished with the house divided against itself? — There is no volu...

The Sew Issue. Within one week from this date, nays the Columbia Carolinian , of the 11th, thore will bo sent to Richmond, from the presses of this city, ten millions of the new currency. The number of signers has been largely increased. Many of these are ladies. The Carolinian learns that the issue from the "mills" will be at the rate of two millions a day. CONSUMPTION. —The following is p&id to be an effectual remedy, and in due time, completely eradicates the disorder: Live temperately; avoid spirituous liquors; wear flannel next to the skin, and every morning take half a pint of now milk, mixed with a wine-glassful of the expressed juice of the hoarhound. One who has tried it says: "Four weeks' use of the hoarhound and milk relieved the pain of my bredst, enabled me to breathe deep, long, and freely, strengthened and harmonized my voice, and restored me to a'better state of health than I had enjoyed for years." In reply to the assertion of one of the radicals, "That ...

WTTHETILLB DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : : : : APRIL 1, 1864. All Together. The Southern people must be united in order to successfully resist Yankee numbers. It is worse than folly to suppose that independence will ever come to us, as a nation, unless we are banded together in one common brotherhood. If a portion of our people become over solicitous concerning the little foxes that are supposed to be nibbling at the tree of States rights, it may give the Boa Constrictor of Abolitionism an opportunity to entwine itself, but too fondly, about its trunk. The right to get rid of Abraham Lincoln, and the Yankees generally, as fellow citizens is what we are now earnestly contending for, and until this is accomplished it were a species of madness to make such ado about things of minor importance. Gov. Brown of Georgia, and Vice President Stephens have both taken grounds in public speeches against the action of Congress in suspending the writ of Habeas Corpus. Mr. Stephens took occasion to say that ...

EARLY RISKRS. —One of our coternporaries, who doubtless loves to whisper soft things by moonlight and doze dreamily late in the morning, disposes of the virtue of early vising as follows: "We have watched these fellows who are early risers, and as a general thing they are the first chaps who go to the groceries of a morning. Ft is all moonshine about the smartest and greatest men being the eftrlyesfc risers. It may have oeen so in old times—we won't dispute about that; but, now-a-days, wnen you see a chap moving about very early, you may be certain he is after a drink'!" Bo right, though you have enemies. You cannot escape them by doing wrong, and it is little gain to barter away your honor and integrity, and divest yourself of moral courage, to gain what ? Nothing. Better abide by the truth—frown down all opposition, and rejoice in the feeling which must inspire a free and independent man. The New York Tribune says the sham Bemocracy of Indiana are, if possible, more resolutely dis...

FROM NASHVILLE. —The Chattanooga Rebel had an interview with Capt. Carncs, of the 31st Tennessee regiment, who lately escaped from Yankee torture in the Penitentiary at Nashville. The Rebel says: Capt. Carnes informs u§ that there is no doubt that the Yankees are concentrating a very heavy force in front of Gen. Johnston. That large reinforcements are constantly passing through Nashville bound for the front, and that no one there doubts that the great battle of the war is to be fought in Northern Georgia. Greenbacks were selling for gold in Nashville when the captain left at three to one. Confederate money had advanced very rapidly under the influence of the new currency bill, and was selling at 30 cents on the dollar. It had before been as low as 5. The stories told of the re-enlist-ment of the old troops are barefaced falsehoods, published for effect. One 1 ndian regiment which was guarding the prisoners was reported through the papers to have re-enlisted almost entire. The Captai...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : : : : APRIL 15, 1864, The lew Currency. It remains with the people to determine whether the new issue shall be better than the old. The old was well nigh ruined by being uncared for, and the new may share the same fate, if those whose duty it is to protect it, leave it to the tender mercy of speculators and sharpers. The people as distinguished from the speculators must assume the guardianship of the money, and by every possible means uphold it. In order to this, extravagance must give way to patriotism, and during the war luxuries be dispensed with. If our Holdiers are living on scant rations, ought we desire to fare sumptuously and to array ourselves in gaudy apparel? As a people we must come down from our extravagant notions, and determine to live upon half rations if necessary. The reckless manner of trading during the past three years, and the want of confidence .shown by the people in the money was doubtless the cause of the present high prices. ...
