A sordid interest, unmixed by. emulation for the nood of our kind unstirred by any auive phibnt!r.y prepress, proges pron-.-s, we grant you but ad of it is' an ac cumulation around a central and' exacting head. A truckling to pr.ver, bearing in its train the brightest aspirations of liberty ; the bartie.t won trophies of scif nee ; the spoils of war, yea. the rewards of all labor, are tribu tary to its Unbridled command. .Government, people, society, are impregnated with this spirit. It pervades all character, its influence is indentured throughout the world. France, Kngland, Russia, Austria, Prussia, Sweeden, Denmark, thu whole Dalian State Ama, Africa, and Smih America, are no exceptions. Even the vaunted premium of Auglo-S.txon per fuction the United S'mtes stamp the idea, true. ib.it we of tho Confederate States are sni generis, young, atiilctic with insubordina tion to all the i lea of power-worship we present to mankind I he embodiment of enligh tened liberty, t h-9 genuine ami unspotted crea tion f '70. L;ke the Waldeus' S, amid craw ling and tmi vonul apoitacy, we -fluid alone, the inheritors and defenders of the pure.prin ciple of original faith. That these .Cm feder ate States an; such people, with such, principle, we hold to be a naked, an undeniable truth. Jf such i the ca-e, should not the isolated con dition of our ever glorious .system magnetise the alfections of ail its citizen? The army, in' its alpha and onvga, officer and private, yield obeis.moe to tho idea, and the genuine fountains of patriotism every where, gush and pulsate tor it, and -for it alone. Tor it h homage to this conviction, which is the backbone ot confederate energy ; a stand oint observer states it. and with the calmness of a iJ;er-oii. wonder at tumult and division, in (vongrcsi.s and with the peo ple, especially energised as it is by th Press. The army, independent, as is br thought, knows no such anarehh-al oopo-iiion, as the stay at home patriot cfhibit. We endorso cordi:illy nn independent and etf' rtdiant ?pir"t. The faith if- begets bonhr.s mi the .sublime ; w honor it iu ti e President.' in Congress, U the jieople, in the pres-s. For it is the inesti mable germ of liberty, above so highly ex tolled. All good things fre abud ; many, inanv arc tho times that wisdom herself is in a blind hurry and good intentions bemire themselves. In inspecting the course of pub lic affairs, we find our statesmen too frequent ly over z -'ill otis our press too hasty, and self-poised. We plead guilty ourselves.' It it is a fw word., v trust, of soberness and truth that we 'would now speak to all this well-intentioned cUs,. Are' not military' rnn, behind the curtain,-rundemned, unheard, bs jfcre tho curtain, by wiseacres (f the class mentioned ? Is not the President and his ad ministration often p oemptorily challenged, by simple lookcrson, without investijition, or sources of knowledge by which they can cor rectly pronounce ? Government policy, most especially in such a war as this, shows and public interest demands, in its management of public matters, a reticent bead, a know nothing countenance. Why then, do we, or dis criminately, how can we, by wholesesale con demn a Secretary ":)f the Waror Navy, theStte Department, a Senate in secret ses-ion , or a President whose action is complicated with them all ? Yet r defiantly do it and pomp ously parade our great opinions to tho public. Let uj pause. Let ns yield to the powers that be, a willing, an earnest support. We cannot always get our own eer, of opinions' adopted.' We should yield to the general good. The whula of life is a series of compromise acts concession after concession for both our own peace aud the happiness of others. We should yield to .the? general good, and it is of the last importance that when Government has declared .its policy, and we know such Solicy will be pursued, whetker wo affirm or eny its wisdom, for hi harmony f the gov erning machine and its happy results, that we give that policy the benefits of a generous sup port.' Policy once decided upon, no good crui come from opposition. We only mako bad worse, and stultify our own professions of patriotism. In the peaceful time of Govern ment this specie of opposition is a necessary element- to tha health of tho political system. Putin times of war, more especially rar waged to win and.s.)euTe a v&ry existence,'such opposition ceases to be a tonic," and becomes poisou. It bears the s.itne fruit as domestic treason. We give our views ofmr Confederate Ex ecutive. We discnt from many of his acts, yet we would, after action taken, support, Ws ; programme, and nr.ko the best of an evil. To the same extent wouhj. we go with .refer ence to our great Heads of Department civil and military. Tho support of the civil power now, in such a ragitfg revolution, can scarcely be divided ' from the military. Indeed the President aud bis administration, is t-f head' of the military machine its fountainSource, persistent resisfence to its policy is but a rancorous and disastrous warping of our mili tary engines. We would then from the secret depths of an earnest patriotism yield to our civil-and military authorities' a hearty, helping hand aud neither for argument sake, n spuri ous spim of independence, or wide difference of sentiment, present to the acts of the ad ministration, or the orders of onr Generals, a stiff Decked front.'

The people iu neighborhoods formerly friendly and disposed to - assist one another ou the rough journey of life, are now busily engaged in persecution or misrepresen tation, because of a.diffcreneo of opinion upon the great questions which are now distracting this 'country and deluging it with blotd. Addison, in ' the. Spectator, says : 'jThere cannot a greater judgment befall any nation than such a dreadful. spirit of division as rends a government into two distinet people, and makes them greater strangers and more averse t one another than if they were actually two different nations, The'effects of snch a divis ion are pernicious in the last degree, not only with regard to thy. advantages which they, give the common enemy, but to those private evils which they product in' the heartxof almost every' particular 'person. This influence is venj fatal both to men's morals and their un derstanding : it sinks, the virtue of a nation, and not only so, but destroys even common sense." . - Should this sUte of things continm should the law Its ss aud vi lert passions of men con tinue to be excited, wo may well fear a rep etiti...n of the scenes iu this State. that were enacted during the days -of the old Revolution, and which are tliU3 described in Hale's History of "the United Stales, - page 210, premium edition : " DuringilhU year. (1781) the inhabitants of the Carol inas endured calamity and distress, rom winch humanity revolts wUh horror. Tlje country was ravaged and pluifdred by both mies. The people, in sentiment, veerc about equally divided. Village wai hostile to vil lage, and neighbor to . neighbor ; and their hostility had been embitterml by accusation and retort, by attack and reprisal, until pillage, burning, and murder, became familiar to all." Whene'er a republican or royalist fell into the power of ;i adversary, ho was instantly sac riliced iu revenge of a friend, or to grattfy political hatred. It is asserted that iu this manner, thousands were put to jdeath Each purty aimed at the extirpation-of the other, and the whoe country presented an unvaried scene of blood md slaughter. But censure ought not to rest equal ly'upoti tho two parties. In the commencement of the contest, the Ilritish, to terrify the people iuto submission', set an example .which the tories were quick, but tho whigs s"!ow, to follow ; and in its pro gress the American generals, and they alone, seized every occasion to discountenance such vtudictive and barbarous conduct." A Senator now in the Confederate Congress writes home to a relative in South Carolyia that in. two inonths from this time our curren-I I cy will bs worth more than it has yet been during the war ; to buy little and cautiously, and to sell frrely. The advice is from a s airce which maizes it worth remembering. We are undoubtedly on the eve of a financial revolution, whtah will do away with the old order of thmgsfimd we believe restore our currency to a sound, healthy and reliable ba sis. Our business rr n already feel tile symp toms of jtho threatened storm, and, like pru dent mariners, are taking in sail. Bonds are in unusual demand , few permament icvest ments are bejig made, save in real estate, and. tho various importing firms are already hove to," with their goods anchored ;n Wilmington and Augusta, waiting for daylight. - "It was worse than a crime- it was a blunder" when our currency was permitted to depreciate at the outset of our troubles; and that foT three years, with all the experience and example, while our enemy has bought two dollars in gold for three in paper paltry "promises to pay" we of the South, with millions upon millions of present and prospective possession to back our Issues, hav been compelled to pay twenty-two dollars of national shinplas ters for one. in coin. But we are glad that, even at this late day, .the 'evil promises to be remedied. Oar financial condition has been tho laughing" stock of the world long jenough. The extortioner and speculator have but a short race to run. The Lord be thanked ! South Carolinian. TaX'Returxs of South Carolina. Hon. Jos. D. Pope, Chief Collector of the War Tax of this State, reports that the tax returns under the first and tenth sections cf the Act, and the tax on registered business, is between five and six millions of dollars. No final returns have been received faun any district. From this, we estimate that if the tax cn incomes, salaries, stock, &c, realize the amount which is an ticipated, the total sum wnlleotetl in South Caro lina during the year 1863. "will be not less than eleven midions of dollars. This estimate does not include the immense amount paid on the tax in kind. We have not the figures at hand, but if memory serves us rightly, our little State pays more into the public treasury more than the great State of Virginia, and nearly as much as the Empire State of Georgia.

The above extract is the language of the Raleigh Standard, which ve copy to enquire what kind of secession that was it advocated ? We well remember the time when the Stan da:d preached secession to tne whole South, and advised the people to give the North a practical touch of the doctrine if the "Yankees refused us our territorial' rights. But the Standard says it "resisted secession up to the last moment." 'We submit that its "resis tance' came too late I'.like crying "put. out the fire,'' after having caused the torch to be applied. MilUn Chronicle. w m RALEIGH, K Cs TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 2,' The TVcmen-of Sparta. : "When Pyrrus, marched againi-t, Sparta, it whs resolved to send the women, intc Crete, but they remonstrated against; it and the Queen, Archidamia, being appointed to speak for the rest, went into the Councir Hall with h sword in her hand, and -.said thev did their wives great wrong if they thought them so faint hearted as to live aftCr Spar raj yvas destroyed.' The chiefs were met in the Conncil Hall, Their words were sad and few, They were ready to tight, and readj to fall, As the sona mi heroes do; Artl mooredjin tbe harbor of Gy thium lay Ihts list ot the Spartan" fleet. That fhouldbear the Spartan women -away , To tbe sariay shore of Crete. . . Their hearts went back t the days of old Thej though t of the world wide shock, When the Persian hosts like an ocean rol'ed " 1 tha foot of the Grecian rock. , And 'they turned their face enger' and pate) To the rising roar in the street, " As if tht claak of the Spartan mail Were the tramp of the conqueror's feet. It was Archidatnia, Spartan Queen, Brave as her father' Osteal ; She Ftood like tha silence that came between The flash and the thunder peal ; She looked in the eyes of the startled crowd, Camly he gazed around; Her yoice was neither low nor loud, -But r?ng like the sword on th(i'gruji"d. "Spartan," Fhe said and her woman's face Flashed on both pride and tbarne "I ask, by the' memory of your race, Are ye worthy of the name? Ye have bidden us 6eek new hearts and graves . Beyond the reach of the foe, And "now by the dash of the blue sea wares, We swear we will not go. - 'Is the name of Pyrrhns. to blanch your cheek. Shall he burn, and kill and destroy ? Are ye not sons of fne deathless Greeks Whc fired the gates of Troy ? m What -though his feet have scathlcss stood In the rush of the Punic Ram I Thonh his eword be red to its hilt, with blood That beat at the heart of Home ? "Brothersand sons! we have reared you men ; (fir walls are the ocean w.ell ; Our wind blow keen down the rocky glen Where the staunch three hundred fell. Our hearts are drenched in the wild sea .flow, - In the light of the hills and the sky, And the Spartan women, if need bo "ao, . Will teach the men to die. "We are brave men's mothers, brave men'a wives ;" We are ready to do and dar We are ready to man your wall with our lives, Ani string your bows with our hair i Let the y.oung and brave lay down at night, And dream of our brave old dead, Their broad shields bright for tho morrow's fight, Their swords beneath their head. "Our breats are better than bolts and bars . We neither wail nor weep ; We will light our torches at the utars, And work while our warriors sleep. We hold not fne iron in our blood Viler than stranger's gold, The memory of our motherhood , la not to be bought or sold. ' "Shame to the traitor heart that springs To the faifit soft arms of peace, If the Koman eagle shook his wings At the very gates'of Greece. Ask not the mothers who gave you birth To bid you turn and flee; "When Sparta is trauipled from the earth Her women can die and be free." t. Northern' And Southern Faith contrasted' There is nothing more remarkable in this war than the deluded, but still undoubting, faith with which the Yankees look forward to .the subjugation of the South If that faith fyul its foundation in any noble or generous princi- . ple.'we should perhaps tremble for the fate of the Confederacy. Bifc. fortunately for us, it is the offspring of no deeper feeling ihan-a most preposterous national vanity a vanity before which that of the Frenchman sinks into utter insignificance. This characteristic is tho Yankee's blind side, on which if you approach him, you may, in spite of his proverbial sharpness, throw him completely off his balance. Perfectly convinced that his nation Is the freest, isest, most enlightened and most powerful under the sun, there is no chimerical undertaking which he would not be prepared, without the slight est elistrust, to see that uation assiime. All things, in his imagination, are possible to Yan kee energy ; all obstacles fated to fall-before the march of Yankee destiny. Hence the read iness wijh which the people swallowed the successive promisesof Seward. If Seward had engaged to plant the star spangied baufl ner in the moon, it would have scarcely been too much for their conceit. Fertified by -this feeling, they saw Seward's niuety. elayS become six months, and his six months three years, yet are still ready to believe themselves on the very brink of success. . The late victory 'at Missionary Ridge has fooled them to the top of their 4xnt. What won eler! when, even in defeat, their intolerable self-complacency willr find something to boast of. Tho Yankees, in 'their own estimation, ' have nver yet been whipped. Like the pale voting gentleman, with red eyelids aud very light hair, who was soundly thrashed by Pip, aid who afterwards expressed his regrets that he had knqeked Pip about so, the Yankees lose six out of seven' battles, are driven for a distance of twenty-seven miles, and, then, with the dust of their tlucomforture still upon them, crow lustily over their brilliant change oDbase. m It is scarcely, therefore, a matter of surprsse, that, in their elatioa at Bragos re treat, they are now flittering themselves as being 'almost at the end of their, toils. Againct this faith built up upon, vanity, the South opposes a faith whicb bas its roots in the deepest feelings of the human heart, and around which are entwined the dearest iuterests and tenderest affections ot hQme and country a faith that has been fed by the memoiies of the past, ,by the most hallowed influences of the present, and Sy a hope which, flowing - from historical and philosophical sources, is not, like that of tho Yankee, tlie mere vision of au excited and self-flat tering fancy. In this cjntrastr we find tha surest pledge of the final triumph of tbe Southern' cause. True it is, as we have already s.iid in a former article, that the faith of the South ha been often weak, and (more perhaps through the fault of the Goveirnment than the people) that it his been occasionally seriously Shaken, while that of the North, bplstered up by dexterous legislation, has never faltered ; still the superior quality of the one will com pensate for the greater steadiness of tire other. The difFerenc; between faith in the Bibl and faith in the Koran, measures the distance be tween the faith of the Southern and the faith cf the Northern pepple; and asurely as Mo hammedanism is destined in the long years to go down before Christianity, so surely will Southern faith be victorious over Northern delusion.

Whatever may be the public opinion as to the justice" of the anti-substitute bill. nn'nnA acquainted with its beneficial effect upon the J iu autri4i Rervioc, can gainsay me propriety, if not the absolute need, of such a law. -Tbe first and most iraportaut result of its repeal Was th chancre risible in the tone aud temper of th se who, for three years, havaj ...jiuiiji uicumn iiiu oIl 01 war in vnis ae partment. and from inability or an honorable determination not to avail 'themselves of its advantages, have suffered hunger, p.in aud neril whilst their more fortunateor less patri otic neighbors have enjoyed ease, comfoi! and sfety.

Sub stitution died and hope revived; and now, to day, no army on' this continent, stands more cheerful, hopeful or delfant before au ene my i Th is revolution is the tnoralt of the army most be fed and kept alive? if success is to crown the next tud most important campaign of the war. Il.flr to do this is thVacme, tho essence of genralshi p. We believe our leaders able, willing and brave; and so fr as men, byacouired fckiil or natural ability. c;m con trol the temper of an' army, l$ zal and wilO not 00 permitted to relax. - - .: But to the people at home we shall look for moral supoct, equally as essential as bridd aDd beef to the integrity and usefulncess of the army. Shall they have it in the future ? I fear th record of the' people r.t home is not what the exigencies of the case require. Too many are despondent ainLdoubtful of the iinul result. Too much zoal has ben wasted to keep men fm the field of death and of honor Too many, whose pecuniary interests are com pletely involved in our success, have with drawn all their moral support. In a word, too many abominable, coward! v croakers are ,r- nutted to sow du-cord and dissention in the laud.-- v I have been led to make these remarks by reports brought to camp by men returning from Home on furlough or detached service. "The people at home are whipped," is the uni versal story. And if one half they te'il betrne, hundreds are ready to welcome peace on dis honorable terms: to bow their proud Southern hearts and bodies to the. rule of Lincoln and his minions to kiss the rod which smites, and stand forever on the mitres of historvas people unwilling to hazard li ft and the comforts of fioine for a season, for the inestimable blessing of freedom gloriously won for themselves and nosteritv: Such feelings, if indulged, should 1 - c a bo banished ; and ail unite, as one man, against t tie common danger. Unity is strength, con roid is invincibility. Abolitionism Threatf.nino the Nonxn The position of the ."War Democrats" of the rsortn, exhibitmg'as it dos, the inconsis tency of professing some fraternal sentiment towards the South, and at the same time clamoriujr for a vigorous so-called "constitu tional" prosecution of the war, has been equally contemptible and unstatesmanlike. It has iustl-v provoked the derision of the Black Re publicans, and the'pity and scorn of the people, towards whom such huUow professions, mask ing such malignant purposes, have been ten dered. It is uot to be wondered at that, with slight a differeucp between them and the Liticoinitrs, thy should have been driven to the wall in the elections andt stripped of ;iow er. It .is nothing more than what they des3r ved. A' better day scorns to'be dawning, however, and the Democrats will probably, before a great while, take the only tenabla and logical ground left open to them, viz: unconditional opposition to tho war. That ground will be sensible it will be one which a man can understand as distinct from the pr valeut doctrine which they elesire to overthrow; aud to it. as they find opportunity and im munity in so doing, they w ill rally. As seon as it is proved to be safe to resist the continu ance of the war, such resistance wi'd make headway. The North has to choose between taking this broad, .distinct ground, or submit ting to have tho whole of their country, as well as the Administration itself, abolition ized. This portentous prospect looms up be fore them now. It is enough to make them shudder.. It is a fearful fate impending over a people who have proved faithless to consti tutional obligations. Content as they have been to have'it overtake others, they shrink as it threatens to approach themselves. Thus is the poisoned chalice commended to their own lipg. The indications of rcstircnees under abolition sway, and a dread of the future under Abolition rule, begin already appe'ar. The Presidential election, now drawing nigh, will bring things to .a head, and they , will either eet better or worse from that time. Miscellaneous. exford Female College.
