Atlanta. It is stated by parties claiming familiarity with "the "situation" at Atlanta, that Sherman cannot assault our position with the slightest prospect of success; also, that the Yankee General cannot maintain his present position much longer. A battle or a retreat is inevitable. In either event, we have reason to hope }ie will not accomplish the original object of the campaign. LEAD MINE.*— It is reported, on good authority, that extensive deposits of lead have been discovered near Willis' Mountain and Curdsville, in Buckingham county, Virginia, and a detachment of Lieut. Cassell's party of engineers have been sent to further the discovery. Of course it will be worked by the Government if found in quantity sufficient to warrant the undertaking. PACKING UP* —The Mobile Tribune learns on good authority the Yankees are preparing to evacuate Natchez. All the horde of locusts who opened their shops there, under Yankee auspices, were nailing up their boxes, closing their stores, and...

To the Editors of the Enquirer: The scenes of our old home inspire sorrow and pride—sorrow for death and suffering, injury and wastepride that the people have had in their hearts to bear all these things in preference to the vulgar tyrany of the Yankee. To a familiar eye, it is strange to see the population crowded into the upper wards and stores, and counting houses in places formerly devoted to private residences, and Quartermasters, and Commissaries, and Engineers in our spacious old family mansions. If the former occ...

Exhuming Muskets and Lead. For about five weeks past the Confederate forces in the vicinity of Fredericksburg, consisting mainly of engineers, have been mining.— The first day they started this enterprise they struck a paying vein, and have worked it energetically ever since. It seems that a number of neatly arranged graves attracted their attention, and, upon examining the head boards, it was found that they were all in commemoration of "officers." The proportion of officers, to men, slumbering upon that particular field awakened suspicion, and the Confederates thought they would try a resurection experiment. The result was they discovered underneath the sacred sod, numerous muskets, lead, and other materials of war. They extended their labors, and have succeed in exhuming several thousand excellent weapons, and a very large quantity of lead, all of which have been sent to Richmond.—Richmond Enquirer. Served Him Right. Some seven months ago a fool of this city, bought of "the Gover...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : SEPTEMBER 2, 1804. After the War. Thanks to Confederate soldiers, the abolition war which was to have made us of "one flesh" with Yankees is just playing out. Peace movements all over the once united North tell us plainly that the stock on hand of foreigners and negroes having been pretty well used up the native population are earnestly desirous of peace. The dark cloud of subjugation, which threatened to burst with fury over the devoted South, is now but as a speck in the horizon, and ere long the croaker will be croaking alone. Believing as we do that the war of subjugation is virtually over, we <leem it not improper to make a few suggestions relative to the treatment of Yankees after the war is over. Our soldiers know how to treat them now but then a different treatment will be necessary. The Yankee is a cute animal and is uo more to be trusted in times of peace than in war. The regular down easter will not be killed in this war but will ...

Platform adopted by the Chicago Convention. The following Platform was adopted at Chicago, with four dissenting voices: Unsolved , That in the future, as in the past, we adhere, with unswerving fidelity, to the Union under the Constitution, as the only solid foundation of our strength, security and happiness as a people, and as the frame work of a government equally condusive to the welfare and prosperity o£ all the States, both Northern and Southern. Resolve d, That this Convention does explicitly declare, as the sense of the American people, that after four years of failure to restore the Union by the experiment of war, (during which, under the pretence of military necesity or the war power, the. Constitution itself has been disregarded in every part and public liberty and private right alike trodden down, % and the national prosperity of the country essentially impaired,) justice, humanity, liberty and the public welfare, demand that immediate efforts be mado for a cessation of h...

The loss of Atlanta has not at all depressed the miirits of the army or the people. So say the telegrams. The truth is, that as long as that army is in the field confronting Sherman, will he be unable to effect the reduction of Georgia. We take it for granted that the series of flank movements by which he succeeded in reaching Atlanta is now closed, and that he will have to make his way by hard fighting. lie cannot be permitted to push his lines any further in the direction of Macon or Columbus. Gen. Hood is, we feel assured, fully alive to the neces...

The caption which we have adopted for this article contains a motto wliich we would enforce as an admonition upon every southern mind. We have entered upon a contest on the result of which our all depends, :tnd having once put our hands to the plow we should never look back. There are only two possible results to this struggle, one of which must be our fate—independence or subjugation. Let us then "never despair," but with a self-sacrificing disposition, devote every energy of our minds and bodies to the attainment of that great boon for which we are contending. "Never dispair!" If we meet with occasional reverses let us remember that no cause was over uniformly successful, and instead of lamen...

Important From Washington. Among the most important items of news telegraphed to the New York Herald from Washington arc the following with regard to TROUBLE BETWEEN SPAIN AND PERU. In the year 1846, it will be remembered, the United States agreed to guaranty, forcibly if need be, the neutrality of the Isthmus of Panama. The treaty was ratified on the 12th day of June, 1848. Now Peru, a friendly country, calls upon the United States of Columbia, formerly known as New Grenada, to prevent Spain from transporting her troops across the Isthmus for the purpose of making war upon Peru. Columbia, knowing that she has not the strength to resist or prevent Spain from thus transporting her troops, calls upon the Government of the United States of America tt) fulfill the guarantee entered into by the above mentioned treaty. Our Government finds no difficulty in determining that it is our plain duty to perform the obligations set forth in the treaty whenever a demand shall lie made by the prope...

Those who desire to continue their subscription to the Dispatch will please give ue notice. There is a right way and there is a wrong way—there is such a thing as justice and there is such a thing as injustice. The war of subjugation which is now being waged with so much fury, can easily be shown to be a war of such great injustice that he who attempts a justification, thereby throws himself entirely out of the pale of all who have the least conception of right. It cannot be that we are so blinded as to view the matter in a false light, and to mistake kindness for cruelty, for verily love for us would hardly have induced the murdering of our citizens and the burning of our houses. It has not been known in all history that a ruler desirous of the welfare and happiness of fois people acted as Lincoln has d...

The Herald on the Presidential Candidates. Bennett modestly says: There is, however probable, no paper in this city except the Herald, having the capital, concientiousness and circulation, the pure principles and the advertising patronage, to render it independent. Standing, therefore, as we do, outside the heated atmosphere of the various little cliques, each only intent on the gratification of its personal passions or interests, we are enabled to take a cool survey of the entire national field, and to form upon passing events some such judgement as will be formed by the Ivinglake of the fourteenth century of the Christian era. We look at all three candidates in nomination for the Px-esidency—Fremont, Lincoln and McClellan—and find that all three are failures; while the men who have really proved themselves great, capable and successful in the conduct of affairs—such men as Grant and Sherman and Hancock, Farragut, Dupont and Porter—-are overpassed in silence. Lincoln is a failure i...
