«._!.-... L.J . — HAVING determined to erect a permanent Tannery on my farm, in the Rich Valley, 5 miles North of Abiugdon, I am now ready to receive hides. I will tiu on tße shares, or buy at the highest cash price, or barter for them at fair rates. I have no leather to exchange for them, but I have some wheat and a good deal of wool, which are about as good trade as leather. All I ask, is a fair trial by my neighbors. I al«o wish to employ a first-rate Tanner and Currier to carry on the business, or I would take a partner. None need apply, except a sober, ■iady, industrious and upright man. Jan. SO,' 18(34—tf A.

IfagitM, Friday* Fob. 18, 1863. The Kegro Draft. The late law of the Legislature authorizing a draft of negroes for labor on fortifications from certain counties in Virginia, is received with disfavor by some and cheerfulness by others. It requires 5 per cent, of the whole slave population, and " k the slaves taken are to be between the ages of 18 and 45. The assesment for this county Is about 120. They are to be taken to Richmond, employed for the space of 00 days, and the owners *to receive a remuueration of $16 per month. There are two sides to this policy, each with its zealous advocates and strong arguments. Some oppose it upon the ground that, there being but comparatively few slaves in this region, our agricultural interests will suffer great detriment, in consequence of the great number of white men who have volunteered in the service. This county, we believe, has furnished about 2,000 soldiers, and contributed for the benefit of families of soldiers, the sum of $25,000. Upo...

L.ate from tlie Worth. Fredericksburg, Feb. 8. Northern papers of the sth have been received here. The Herald regards the raising of the blockade, if recognized, as a most sennas matter. It says that two months intercourse with England would make the South invincible. It cites various Authorities, favoring that view of the matter, very decidedly, but expresses its own Views dubiously, that the blockade is not raised. It' fears there, is some understanding with regard to this mode of raising the blockade. The Herald also says that the great armada is waiting favorable wind to leave Beaufort. It will wipe out the disgrace of Charleston and Galveston. Four new iron-clads would be sent to sea in a few days. A telegram from Nashville states that Gen. Forrest had been, repulsed at Fort Dimelson. He captured a battery of four.guns, but afterwards lost them, with about 180 men killed, wounded and prisoners. Forrest is said to be #qunded. :The Herald regards the election of Morgan as Senator...

BY COALE &z BABB Friday, Feb. »0, 1863. j—r—a SB '" . , . i ... Conscription. Maj. Terry's Court, engaged in tbe work of examining, enrolling and exempting con * scripts, after a session of four days, closed its labors in this place on Saturday evening last. In the main, we believe, the decisions ef the Board were correct, though errors doubtless occurred. Some were discharged who should have been enrolled, and some were enrolled who should have been discharged. To have done otherwise was an impossibility under .the circumstances. There were, we understand,. 300 conscripts enrolled in this county, but how many of these will report themselves is yet to be ascertained. It is hoped, however, that, in this trying crisis, but few will submit to the degradation of arrest. As a general thing, we have a better opinion of conscripts, than to believe that a'want of pa- , triotism has kept them out of the army, or will prevent them from reporting promptly to ; the enrolling officer...

THE SOLDIERS SONG. It is not on the battle field - * That I would wish to die; It is not on a broken shield Pd breathe my latest sigh, Although a soldier knows not bow to dread a soldiers doom, Pd ask no laurels for my brow,' No-trophies for my tomb. It is not that I scorn the wrath, The sjjjdiers proudly wears,; It is not that I fear the death,. The soldier bravely dares. When slaughtered comrades round me lie, * I'd be the last to yield; But, yet I would not wish to die Upon tße battle field. When faint and bleeding in the fray, j Oh! still may I retain '* i Enough' of life, to crawl away , j To this sweet vale again; And, like the wounded, weary dove, That flutters to her nest, j Oh may I reach my own true love, And die upon her breast! * Circular—To Absentees.

E*Y COALE &> BARR Friday, Fet>. 1863. The Northern Democracy. Many persons in the South entertain strong hopes df an early peace in the apparent dissatisfaction of what is*called the Northern Democracy with the present abolition war, and then* professed determination.to put a stop to it. This •Qjtfty is' composed of conservatives from all other parties, and is termed the Democracy in contradistinction to Black Republicanism. At first, when John Van Buren, Gov. Seymour and others, took their bold and defiant stand against the farther prosecution ,of the war, we had. some hope that they reflected the popular Northern sentiment, but the developments of time have shown that t their patriotism has exhausted itself with its first outbursts, and we now have no more confidence in' them than we have in tionists themselves. They want peace, but are only willing, to have it upon the terms of the restoration of the Union as it was. Lincoln and Seward themselves...

Advanced Rates. '' We have tried our best'to keep up the Virginian at the old rates, but find it impossible longer to do so, a loss we are unable to bear. All kinds of printing materials are seven-fold their former prices, and everything to live upon or wear from five to ten-fold. The sheet of paper upon which we print, costs but a fraction less .than we get for it after it is printed. W T e advance our terms only 20 per. cent., while we have to pay about 1,000 per cent for everything we buy. All our cotemporaries have been forced to raise, . and we have only refrained from doing so by the foolish hope that a favorable change would soon occur. Our terms for the future until better times return, will be as follows: Subscription one year in advance, $3.00 do. hi months do. 1.50 Advertising, 10 lines one insertion, 1.00 Each continuance . 75 Obituaries of more than 10 lines will be charged at advertising rates, also tributes of respect, and $5 for announcing candidates.

POETBY. "V ts this a Dancet The breath of evening sweeps the plain, And sheds its perfume in the dell— But on its wings are sounds of pain, . Sad tones that drown, the echo's swell; And yet wo hear a mirthful call, Fair pleasure smiles with beaming glance, Gay mdsic sounds in the joyous hall ? • Ob. God! is this a time to danoe ? Sad notes, as if a spirit sighed, Float from the crimson battle plain, As if a mighty spirit cried In awful agony and pain— Our "friends we know there suffering lay, Our brothers, too,, perchance, And in reproachful accents say— -« Loved ones, is this a tinje to dance? Oh lift your festal robes on high! The human gore that flows around "Will stain their hues with crimson dye, And louder yet your music sound. To drown the dying Warner's cry I '' 00*1 Let sparkling wine .your joy enhance, Forget that blood has tinged its dye, , And quicker urge the maniac's dance. But Btbp! the floor beneath your feet Gives back a coffin's hollow moon, And every strain of mus...

BY COALE &BARB Northern Sympatny. In our last, we expressed our views very briefly upon this subject. We are sorry that there are persons within the bounds of onr circulation, particularly in some of.the neigh- . boring counties in East Tennessee, who stilL . cherish the absurd expectation that the Union Will be restored. For the consideration of such, we continue tbe subject. We might well say, as we did in our last issue, 'if we ever have peace, we must conquer U. Nothing to our advantage need be expected from sympatizers in-the North or Northwest. True, genuine, christian fellow-feeling for us—feelings correspondent in kind.for.our cause—do not exist, outside the Confederacy, to that extent which political gamblers, at the North, would have us believe. There are thousands, no doubt, who desire psace—there life many christian men and women gow in the Northern States who would rejoice at the return of peace for the sake of peas*, but even many such, if riot all, would s...

The particulars, as lie relates them to us, are these: .' , A Mr. Moore, about 50 years old, and his two sons-in-law, came from Tazewell county to Marion on Tuesday, the two latter returning to Jenkins' command, from which they had been furleughed. The father-in-law, it • acorns, came to see them off or the Eastern train Wednesday morning.

They were to report here at that time, and receive their discharges. Bad as tbe day was, some of them came in, and also on the nest .day, but no discharges had been sent to Mr. Heiskell, as had been arranged. All tbey have to do is, to go about their own business, and await the action of the agents» of the War Department. When the discharges como, notice will be given, .we pre-* some. But there is another" class of" conscripts, who have been put to a great deal of trouble and unnecessary expense. We mean those who were to report a Dublin on the 10th. Capt.
