"He, therefore, in tbe name of tbe people of the Confederate States, offers expression of our sincere and cordial apprecia tion of .the christian charity and love by which His Holiness is actuated, and assures 1dm that we are now-and ever have been earnestly de sirous that this wicked war shall cease, that we desire no evil to our enemies nor covet their possessions, but are struggling- thnt-they may cease to devastate our land, that we he per mitted to live under our own laws ami institu tion?. . . , The Pope's reply is addressed to the illustri ous Honoiable Jefferson Davis, President Con-' federate States of America, Richmond, Va. He r. snys it is very gi-atifying to recognize that tha people of the Confederate States are animated by the same desire for peace and tranquility in culcated in aforesaid letters; oh, that other people, also of States, and their rulers would receive and embrace councils of peace.

' Even supposing it were so, would the meo who composed this meeting prfrr to go under the brutal despotism of the debased anil un principled Yankee a nation of blackguards, with the lowest of blackguards, a buffoon, at their hcac to coming under the despotism of their own countrymeu gentlemen'? Do they no know tlut, if they take 'North Carolina out -of the Confederacy, it wiH be utterly impossible to set her up as an indc- St'ndmt power, unconnected cither with the rorthern Des'p. tism or the Omfe 'eitcy of the South ?

It remained for. Forrest, who is fact becoming he Murat of this war, to in augurate charging an enemy without a weapon f any description. Iu his recent retreat from Jackson, Tennessee, he was attacked by the Yankees near the line of tho Memphis and Charleston Railroad, and his armed force being small, he ordered the new recruits, two thousand in number, who had not received arms,, to charge the enemy. They immediately rushed, and the Yankees, astounded at the force coming towards them, fled in all directions, leaving Forrest a clear road to Oxford.

And when you .do so, write. cheering letters letters iat will stimu Jate and encourrge those wh receives them. Letters of this kind will make those who re ceive them contented.

Tho situation of the people of EUro Cant lii;a aud Virginia is really heart-rouding. . Men of all ages and cashes may bo seen going from one to another shedding tears .like whipped children, at the' gloomy prospect ahead of tlu'in. Neur the t 'WU uf Plymouth they have fixed a pi ice for t'.e people to go aud take the oath.

Several ncroc have b- en arcstcd in I)u isville, Kentucky,' charged with endeavoring to incite other negroes' to insurrection agaiimt t the Yankee atutjorities. The negnts are generally. ahfwing a better and fuller appreciation of their Ut interests than was anticijiated by their professed fiiends,' ' the Yankees, or many of their true friends in the South. -They kiiow tonre (f the facts of the case than the Yai.kecs know, and accnhng to knowledge thoy invari'.bly stick closer to the truth than the Yankees do. From thoday when the three old d anus "reported in the fa ble belabored a poor negro nearly to death with brushes lnd scrubbing to change ' tin 1(4 of the skirt, negroes have suffered more frc m their profc&ocd friends and intcrmeddleis than In in masters or employers, or any who know their charactii aud qualities. .A faitli ful record of the trials, aud endurances, and sufferitfgs of god and true sertanU, undci, . ll i war.will be rne of the moslurgcwt debts . wo shall owe and acknowledge to ourselves, t theuiatid to the truth of the case.
