Such preparations as the Noitfh is making for our subjugation, 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 nothing to hope from the Northern people.; Thoa few deprecate the war, and Would terminate it to-morrow npoh any terms, and the masses are for prosecuting it to the annihilation 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 musicFalls 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 !

Abingdon Virginian BY COALE & BARR assMiseac ~ a i Friday, April 17, 1863. Another Advance. We regret exceedingly the necessity of being compelled to make another advance in our rates. The paper manufacturers make a raise upon us of about 25 per cent, nearly every twenty-four hours. We published Ihe Virginian for $2.50 per annum for months after 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, we barely reached a price to cover expenses, The same amount of paper that cost us $90 two years ago, now costs us $300, and that which cost us $9 three weeks ago, now costs us $16.20. Therefore we are obliged to raise j to $4 or shut up shop. To print the Virginian for less, would involve a loss we are un-1 able to bear, else we would do it. Were we to raise it to a price proportioned to what we have to pay for everything we buy, it would put it to $40 a year. Thank God, we have not speculated n...

Circuit Court. The Circuit Court for Washington county— Judge Campbell presiding, commenced its session on Monday last, and was in session when our paper went to press. The criminal docket has been unusually large for one term for this county. The first case tried was that of the Commonwealth vs James Kelly—an Irishmen—for Grand Larceny. He was found guilty of Petit Larceny and sentenced to 7 months imprisonment in the jail of ths county. 2. The Commonwealth vs Geo. Walker—a "Tiger," we believe—for horse stealing. He was convicted and his punishment in the Penitentiary assessed at 4 years. His counsel have moved to set aside the verdict. The motion is being entertained whilst our paper is being issued. 3d. The Commonwealth vs James Cook, for horse stealing. Convicted and sentenced to 2 years in the Penitentiary.
