I Staunton %ectator* < STAU NTONJA. ~~~~~~~; TUESDAY MORNING, ; i : MARCH 3, 1863 Lincoln's Conscription oi Three Millions. The Yankee conscription bill lias passed the Senate, and we suppose has passed the House by this time, as the term ot the Yankee Congress will ex pire on to-morrow. By this bill, they expect to bring three: millions or" men into the field, and to crush the South by the vi# inertice of sucl t a mass. Whether their call upon these three millions will be like "calling spirits from the vasty deep" or not, remains to be seen. If the, people of the North are as much dissat- j isfied with the Lincoln tyranny, as we have been led to believe, and if they have the boldness and courage to resist the call, this bill will have the effect of arousing a rebellion in the North which will soon make the establishment ofthe independence of the Southern Confede racy a fixed fact. We should guard ourselves against rely ing-too confidently upon the spirit ofthe down-trodden peo p...

SMatmton Styedator. STAUNTON, VA. , TUESDAY MOKNING,: i : MARCH 10, 1863. J A H lance over the Field. The enemy are now preparing to at-, tack us, with very large forces, at many j places. These notes of preparation are j now heard all around our Confederacy, i North, South, East and West. Attacks \ are daily expected at Charleston, S. C, Savannah, Ga., and Port Hudson in Louisiana; and, in a short time, we may expect severe battles to be fought at Vicksburg, Miss., and near Tullahoma, Tennessee. Even Hooker, on the Rap pahannock, says that he has the strong est and best army in the world—that it is not at all demoralized, and is pre pared for an advance as soon as the con dition of the roads will permit. It will thus be seen that stirr-ng and important news may be daily expected. The ene my recently have been again essaying an attack u;»on Fort McAllister, one of the out-post defences of Savannah. So far, they have been able to effect nothing, find our forces seem to be con fident ...

Staunton Spectator. STAUNTON, VA. TUESDAY MOJtNING,: : : MARCH, 17 1863. A Suggestion to our Farmers. It is manifest that there must soon be a great increase of taxation —both State and Confederate. The probability is, that the aggregate will be about two per centum on the value of every'man's estate—real and personal. A farmer, therefore, who has land, slaves and other personal property worth $20,000, will nave to pay $400 in taxes. This he can do without much inconvenience while wheat, corn and rye are worth $4 per bushel, and other things of his farm in proportion. Every one now has more money than he knows what to do with: but when prices fall to their natural and regular rates, the burthen ■will be very heavy—nay, almost ruin ous. Now is the time for every prudent man to make provision against the evil day. Let every farmer, instead of wast ing his money in buying things not in dispensable, invest it in Confederate 8 percent, bonds to an amount which will yield an interest equa...
