Such prepara tions as the Noitfh is making for our subjuga tion, the world has never seen. Napoleon's wand Army for the invasion of Rnseia, was a mere scouting party in comparison with the legions Lincoln is now marshalling. If his calls are responded to, he will have a million end a half of men, Yankees and negroes, in the fi>ld by the Ist of May. We have noth ing to hope from the Northern people.; Tho a few deprecate the war, and Would terminate it to-morrow npoh any terms, and the masses are for prosecuting it to the anni hilation of the South. Peace, therefore, in ear opinion, is a forlorn hope during the reign of Abe Lincoln, unless we can conquer it.— This we can do, if the people at home are true to themselves and just te the soldiers in our armies.

I can't be Gay To-Ki&ut. A strain of joyous music- Falls on the evening air, Responsive to its melody, Pass on the dancers fair; Gay faces glance around me, The revel's at its height, And yet, I join not in its mirth, I can't be gay to-night. Is this a time for merriment, For music, dance and 6ong? And do these precious, golden hours To gayety belong ? 0! comes there not a single thought Of dear ones in the fight ? Does not one heart respond to mine, I can't be gay to-night? Gay forms flit swiftly by me In the mazes of the dance, And laughter gleams in sunny eyes, Dwells in each sportive glance ; 0 ! time with them glides swiftly on, They marvel at its flight, With me it rolls on sluggishly, I can't be gay to-night! j How soon those feet may slowly move, That now so lightly tread !

We published Ihe Virginian for $2.50 per annum for months af ter the blank paper cost us as much as we got; for it after the labor and expense of printing ' it, and when we raised to $3 a few weeks ago, j we barely reached a price to cover expenses, j The same amount of paper that cost us $90 j two years ago, now costs us $300, and that j which cost us $9 three weeks ago, now costs j us $16.20. Therefore we are obliged to raise j to $4 or shut up shop. To print the Virgi nian for less, would involve a loss we are un-1 able to bear, else we would do it.
