WTTHEVILLE DISPATCH. FRIDAY, MARCH : : : 24, 1865 Negro Troops. Both Houses of Congress have passed the "Negro Enlistment Bill,' and it is now the law of the land, having received the approval of the President. We greatly fear that the Bill is defective in a vital point —it is not compulsory. This one feature, in our view, will render it almost powerless for good. In case however, the requisite number of troops is not raised by voluntary enlistments, with the consent of the owners, the President is authorized to call upon the several States for rheir quotas of 300,000 troops, to be raised from persons not liable to military duty under existing laws. This provision does not relieve the Hill from the objectionable feature, na it is hardly probable that any of the States, except, perhaps, Virginia, will take the steps necessary to furnish the troops. At least, the action will, in all probability, be delayed so long as to nullify any good effects that might result from the law if prompt...

WYTHEVILLE CMS PATCH. VOL. IV. Hymn to the National Flag. BY MRS. M. J. PRESTON. Float aloft, thou stainless banner, Azure cross and field of light Be thy brilliant stars the symbol Of the pure and true and right. Shelter Freedom's holy cause, Liberty and sacred laws; Guard the youngest of the nations— Keep her virgin honor brght. From Virginia's storied border, Down to Tampa's farthest shore; Prom the blue Atlantic's dashings, To the Rio Grande's roar ; Over many a crimson plain, Where our martyr'd ones lie slain, Fling abroad thy blessed shelter — Stream and mount and valley o'er In thy cross of heavenly azure Has our faith its emblem high; In thy field of white, the hallow'd Truth for which we'll dare and die. I n thy red the patriot blood; Ah! the consecrated flood. Lift thyself resistless banner! Ever fill our Southern sky! Flash with living lightning motion, In the sight of all the brave: Till the price at which we purchased Room and right for thee to wave Freely in our God's ...

ADVERTIRING RATES. —For each insertion of ten lines or less, $2.00. Liberal deduction made to quarterly or yearly subscribers. SUBSCRIBERS whose papers are marked with a CROSS will know that their term of subscription is about to expire, if they wish to continue will remit the amount at once. The feeling of despondency which but a few weeks ago pervaded almost the entire community, is being rapidly succeeded by a more healthful and hopeful tone of sentiment. The elongated visages we were wont to meet when Sherman was marching at will through the fairest portion of the South, devastating the country through which he passed with fire and sword, have given place to countenances beaming with hope and cheerfulness, now that he has met a lion in his path, and is about to come to grief. A few weeks have wrought great changes, thanks to the chec...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH. SATURDAY, : : : : : JULY 7, 1866. The Negro Homestead Bill. The signing by the President of the hill which virtually gives to the negroes all the United States lands in the Southern States, seems to have attracted no attention in the South. The New York World says: "The supplementary Homestead bill which quietly became a law the other day, will, if the intention of its projectors are carried out, produce a more vital change in the condition of the negro race at the South than even the transition from slavery to freedom. The niero abolition of chattel slavery did not materially change the status of the negro as a laborer. He was compelled to work in the cotton fields beforo the war by the will of his master, and he still works the ground to earn wages upon which to live. The new Homestead bill, however, aims to make him a freeholder, and thus break up what is left of the present iabor system of the South. It is safe to predict that, if the designs of the Radicals...

WYTHEVILLE DISPATCH. FRIDAY, : : : : : AUGUST 10, 1866. Black Gum Against Thunder. In his "AVar of the Rebellion," Ex-gov-ernor Footc is very severe upon General Hindman, who for a while, during the war, played autocrat in Arkansas. Hind- * man, who is in Mexico, has lately seen a copy of the booH, and from Orizaba, under date June 25th, writes his impressions of the work and its writer. His criticism is published in the New York News of Friday last. That the leader may have some idea of its character, we make an extract. General Hindman declares in the outset that "the wilful misstatements, false inuendoes and malicious outnumber the sentences if not the clauses." The first which he notices is the statement that when 'a very young man' he was "a noisy and unscrupulous advocate of Jefferson Davis." To this Genl. Hindman replies: "During the contest referred to, my vote, as a Democratic Acmbor of the Legislature, was cast, without instructions, against Mr. Davis for the United States...

LOG ITEMS. BOU. Last week wo made a short visit to the pleasant town of Fiooastle, and found every tiling ' n a flourishing condition; even our friend James, of the "Herald" seemed to be getting along finely in this wide, wide world, which is a rare thing for a newspaperman in this section of the "best government the world ever saw." We wish him great success, and hope that his sheet may never grow less. But why should Fincastle look any other way than flourishing, especially to an unmarried man, when it contains so many of Eve's fair daughters—their charms are certainly many and powerful. The expanding rose, just bursting into beauty, lias an irrestiblc betwitchingness: the blooming bride led triumphantly to the hymeneal altar, awakens admiration and interest, and the blush of her <heek fills with delight; but their charms are more sublime than all these. An acquaintance of ours, just stepping into the "sear and yellow leaf" of bachelorism hasj ust repeated to us: "Frail...

ODDS AND ENDS. A dogma is defined as an opinion laid down with a snarl. The more polished society is, tho less formality there is in it. A caso is before a St. Louis court involving tho question as to whether a man's wife is personal property. Never be discouraged because you can't do much. Do what you can, angels can Jo no more. ' The first law of female nature, where wotyfiu are at all good looking, is selfpresvrvation. Neither false curls, false teeth, false calves, nor even false eyes, are as bad as false tongues. By acting as we ought to think, wo end by thinking as we ought to act. A ludy asked a noted doctor if he did not think the small bonnets the ladies wore had a tendency to produce a congestion of the brain. Oh, no, replied he, ladies who have brains don't wear them. A woman in Rushville, 111., has been seized with a strange mania for murdor. She first practised on cats, then tried children, then becoming severe, she beat her own brains out.
