_Harm.en STAUNION.VA. TBESD if. SEPT. 24, 1861. Poor Kentucky. This once noble, high-spirited and chivalric State, which deserved and commanded the respect of all lovers of freedom and heroic daring, is now degraded and debased by affiliation with the despotic Lincoln Government which has trampled ruthlessly upon every principle of freedom, and put to shame tlie despotism of Austria in its worst days. Kentucky, in an evil hour, yielded to the treacherous seductions of her Union counsellors, and assumed to occupy a position of strict neutrality between the North and South. This was supposed to be her position, and though deeply regretted by the South, was observed in good faith by the Confederate States, until her Legislature, by forbidding the Confederate forces to occupy her soil whilst the forces of Lincoln were not prohibited, changed her position fiom that of neutrality to a friend of the Lincoln Government and au enemy of the Confederate States. So far as her Legislature can ef...

[Feojc thb Richmond Whig ] A Sancy Yankee Well Answered. A lriend in the army eccloses us the following piquaut memento of the stirring little "brush," the 11th inst., at Lawiusville. Oi that occasion, a Yankee free, 2,000 strong, had come out from their entrenchments to 'liold, occupy and possess," as is believed, a certain important stragetic point in the neighborhood of Fall's Church — but, as they afterwards pretended, only t<> make a reoonnoissance. Whatever may have been their purpose, tbey were foiled, driven b ick and stampeded by that terrible young horseman, 001. Stuart, wiio tell up in them iv his dashing style, killing, wounding aud capturing enough to make their remrn lo camp sensibly less imposing than their set out had beeu. Mo lellan was himself present in this affair, aud participated in the 2.---40 retreat. One cf the junior officers of the expedition was a saucy Lieutenant of Eugiueers, named Poe, an ohl acquaintance of Stuart. Ju6t before th...

As the individual whom we would prefer to see the Representative of this District in the Congress of the Confederate States was in command of a regiment, prepared to spill his life's blood in defence of the rights, honor and independence of the South, we did not think that hie services in tha halls ot Legislation conld be obtained, and had prepared .1 notice ia commendation of a distinguished Democrat whom we expected to support for Congress; for the fact of his being a Democrat was no objiction to us now, for we could not respect ourself if, in these times, we could be influence 1 by past party prejudices. We pity the contracted and bigoted sonl who is not williog now to merge the partisan into the patriot—to sacrifice patty prejudices upon the sacred altar cf patriotism—to support heartily and cordially...

The Resources of the South. There is no country so rich in resources as the Sjutb. It is 'Tod's favored region, on wbicb his band baa lavished boundless wealth. A single glance at the map, and the most casual view of its uutnerous advantages must aatisfy any mind that it was furnished and destined by the Creator ot all things to be the seat ot a mighty and flourishing nation. All its features indicate that it was intended to have a national existence and career of its own, and to be tributary to none. No other portio:i of the earth possesses such a combination of natural i-roductions aud resource. Trie three kingdoms of nature, the animal, the vegetable and the mineral, contribute their richest treasures to its aggrandizement. All the domestic animals which contribute to the sustenance and convenience of man can be reared in this favored region. Horses, mules and cattle find here a congenial clime, in whioh they reach their h gbest perfection. Its boundless corn tieius cm fatten inn...

As long as the Uuior; was a temple of freedom, at whose shrine all the devotees of Liberty might worship—os "long as it was a beacon light guiding the tempest-'ost on the sea of despotism to a haven of peace— as long as it attracted the gaze and admiration of the friends of liberty throughout the world, and excited the hopes of the downtrodden victims of tyranny, wherever found bending beneath the galling yoke—as long as it promised to hand down to posterity the rich inheritance bequeathed us by our patriotic ancestors, we were the devoted friend of its preservation and perpetuation ; but when it was changed from a temple of freedom to a prison for the friends of liberty—when its vast powers were used to rivet the chains of despotism upon the limbs of freemen —.vben it was perverted to th...

To Who I To Who ! 'Twas on a cold, autumnal night, A dismal one to view, Dark clouds obscured fair Venus' light, And not a star appeared in sight, As the thick forests through. Muggins, as usual, "blue," Bent bomewsrd, "tacking" left and right; When all at once he "brought up" right Against an old dead yew; At which he "rounded to," And "squaring oft'" as if to fight, Said wah au oath I shant indite, " Infernal scoundrel, you ! Light—an' I'll kick you, black or white," Just then above him flew An owl. which on a branch did light, A fsw feet ocr the boozy wight, And tbeu c«;ii_em'ed, To who— 1_ wno-.o who—to who— Quoth .V! iggios, "d/n't you think to fright A fellow _ ni> .veight aud height Wi _ voar ter wh.>, tor who, You cusst'i ougaboo!

It is not often that the virtues find qualifications ot a candidate are urged as reasons for vo ting against him, yet this was the case w.tli 001. Jno. B. Baldwin in tie recent caovasj for Congress. As he was in command of a regiment in which there are about 700 sons of Augusta, many - of his warmest admirers and best friends, who had sons or Mends under his command, were influenced to vote against him because they had confidence in his skill as a comuiauder and knew that he would act the part of a father to the young men under his command and were unwilling to exchange him for any one else. We have heard of a number of instances in which his best friends voted against him in the recent canvass for the rea a ous we lave just mentioned, and have no doubt that scores were influenced by the...

A Speech from Gen. Jeff. Thompson—What Hi* Little Army Has Dune. The Memphis Avalanche says: This famous guerilla chieftain, who has been justly styled tht» Marion of this war, having been complimented by one of the lady songstresses by a flattering allusion in the course of the entertainment at tbe theatre last evening, favored tbe audience with one of his characteristic speeches, lie stated that in tho last month his gallant little aruiy of over one thousand men had marched over five hundred miles ; had fought the enemy every day ; had killed five hundred of them, more than had been dispatched by the whole "Western army besides; had accomplished all that Gen. Johnson had sent it to do in its Missouri campaign, and had come out with more men than it had started with. We quote his own language when we state that since the 20th instaut he has fought five battles, and has only eighty men less than when he started. How many of the enemy he has killed we cannot say, but it is supposed t...

On Wednesday morning last, at 5 o'clock, a frame building, occupied by servants, and a stone house contiguons to the Virginia Hotel, occupied by Miss Nancy Garber, as a domicil, and by Miss Mary E. Pearsoa, as a Millinery Store, were consumed by fire. The fire was accidental, having originated in a-i ash box. For some time it was thought impossible to prevent all the extensive buildings of the Va. Hotel from being destroyed. Tbe Hotel was saved by the active and efficient exertions of tbe Fire Company and the prompt and energetic assistance rendered by citizens ol tho town. Misj Nancy Garber had the misfortune to lose everything she had in the horse at the time, and barely escaped with he- life. Miss Pearsoc, we believe, had the good fortune to save nearly all she had iv her store. There was very grea...

Prince Napoleon. The fact that the Prince Napoleon, since bis return, has expressed the opinion that the subjugation of the South and the reconstruction of the Union are impossible, are gall and wormwood to tbe Lincoln Government. All the toadying, feasting, and flattering of the illustrious French visitors halfe not blinded their eyes to a truth which everybody sees but the demented North. That remarkable people seems to suppose that ah they have to do to win tbe favorable opinion of foreign visitors is to give tljitn good dinners and treat them with distinguished consideration.— They were very much astounded that, after potting themselves on their best behavior to the Piiiice of Wale-, England should not help them put dowQ this S lUihern rebellion. Disappointed in that quarter, they honeyed the Prince Napoleon, but with equal ill fortune.
