The ehildreti of Iffaet wwit oat of Egypt Witbnut n. jrapplyof clcrtKejf. yef Gl'n(pled their necessity by not suffering those that they had to wax old. .They were not .proi led with food, yet He . gave them manna from heaven. When this war began we were not so well prepared for it. as were the children -of Ierael for their journey through the wilderne-s. . V7e had no manufactories of our own. and before leaving our Northern neighbors we did n t take the precaution to borrow of them jewels of silver and jewels of gold." wherewith;, to buy oar necessaries from others. Notwithstanding this, God has mercifully provided us with foH, raiment, and the means of defending ourselves against His and our enemies. God's mercies to Israel were new every morn ing and fresh every evening, yet some of them erew weary and sighed for the fleshpots of Egypt with bondage.- Ala"! that this part of the story should find a parallel in our case. Instead of encouraging and helping Moses, some. of the peple spoke disrespectfnlly of him, complained against him and even strov with him. Have not sme of our ' rulers need of the meekness of.M ses to enable them to bear trials of a similar nature ? Id-flatry waa anothr sin which thi stiff necked people committed. '.Instead of serv ing Qod. who bad wrought, such a deli veraneo f r them, they made a golden calf and wor shiped it. And are there not thre amon ns who hav- been gath"ring oieihr gold to make a god for themselves? Notwithstand ing the man'." sins of the children of Israel, Ofd brought them safely to the borders of Canaan. There ar many who think that but for accidents which occurred at certain batt eg, we w u'd haver-inquired a p ace r)onths ago. Wha? prevented this consummation sodv-ut ly to be wished? We helieve th it the same cause that prventM Israel from entering Canaan h s prevtntel us thus far from attain ing rur independence. 5 That G'fl who had given His chosen people so many evidences of his mrcvand His p -wr. had a r'ght to test their faith .in Hi nself. Tnerefore the am spies that brought- in the clusters from Eshcd reported' thit the citir'H of that country were . wa!Ied And very high and thst the men were giants. C'"b and Joshua had not forgotten their dry passage ver the Rd Sea and the refreshing stream which flowed fr m the rock, therefore they advised hat they go up at once ami possess the laod : for said they, their defence is de parted from them, and the Lord is with us, fear them not. Tbe wieked Israelites refused to trust Gd, and for their unbelief He turned thenvback into the wilderness, there to wander and to die. v God has given to the. people of the Cnfed erate States of America rem irkable evidences rtf His love for them and of His power t take are of them. O, let Him not sav of us as He did of Israel: "How long will this P 'ople provoke m and ho.v long will it he ere th"V believe m?, for nil the signs which 1 Iwve showed among them ?

Though he was only-a few feet fromus," and had an opiortunity to converse with us, he never at tempted to do so; never approached us; never ut'ered a word, arid, indeed, studiously avoid Bd any communication with u. I had by sjpy side a soldier who was from his own county and had often voted ; for hira. but Mr - Cobb did not evfn deign a recognition of tiis neigh bor and friend. Such conduct trom a mem ber ot the Con federate Congress towards his own countrymen, who were captives, and on their way, to a Northern prison, was a bitter disapx)intment. The subject was treely dis cussed at the time among the prisoriens and the opinion among them Was Universal that Mr Cobb was false to bis positiou and to his Government. - 1 he question comes u , bow came he here, at Chattino oga, at th a? tiraw, just after a great disaster to our arms ? His presence there was, toall appear i nces, entirely vol uritary At all eve'itv he v d iotarily p'aced himself in t!"ir p w-jr, by renaii-nog .at h rae'vviien thev tfik p H-iessi uj of his o ity. and w aen he had "ample initio-) of th"ir coming.

Whv. then, did h- remain ? Tnre are maiy other circumstances which cast suspicion upon Mr. Chb's I y iby to our cans. He was Iv rn arid grew to manhood in Ni-w England.

While in the old Congress he tna-iaged to grow rich, but he. invested but littlo of his walth in S u!bern blaves or S lUthern lands. The 'bilk-of his capital was, and is. in the Northwest. It is believ ed that he is now in Washington city, and connected w'nh a movement n w develojdng itself in his Congressional district, to form a new and dis-oyai Sute in Nrth A'abuna.

C Keer, throu4h the Charlotte' Bulletin, as folio -vs : I was at Xnxv Orleans when it fell into the hands of Beast Butler. Weitzel vas a lieu tenant in his army, ami soon proved himself worthy of his commander. In a few weeks after taking po-s-n of the city, Lieutenant Wei'z1 was appointed "Assistant Mi'd'aey C mmanda:it and Acting Major of New Or leans." Among other a.s, t heard ot one that 8hov the ciaraeter of the man. Puttit-g on citizens' dres, he weilt with a man. who ' pr v'd to be a traitor to us, and called as a visitor on one of our; Southern families, and was introd uced in such a manner, that they thought him a frien 1 of the S uth, and, of course, spoke very freely of their surround- 'iugs. Upon irdormation gsiued in that way he tried to arrest, as a spy, a son of that fam ily who hd "run the blockade" to visit his friends. Happily, he failed. He was a Lieirenant in the United States Engineer corps, and, I tniuk, was fo some time ttie enginer in charge when the new marme hospital was building m &ew Or leans. , . .. . -. As engineer ho had beeajengaged in sur veying lands on the Lafourche fwr the Gv eruinent. In that way he became acquainted with the topography of the country, and with many of the plan'ers in that section of the Stte. For that reason he was' made a briga dier general of volunteers, and placed in charg of th expedition fitted out for the de struction of that rich and beautiful section of Louisiana. It Was his soldier that laid waste that country, pillaged and destroy the pro perty of those who in days past had' treated him with th- hospitality and courtesy due a gentleman.

Oar citiz-ns have ben app-aled to in uumberlcss instances to relieve the sick and wounded soldiers, to ' furnish shoes and clothing for soldiers in the held and hospital, and to afford food and shelter for their suffering families, and nobly have thsy, in the .great majority of , in stances, responded to every appeal.4 ' . The ruppliof of provUiona in this city at this t!u.e are -ao reduced, and the difficulties of ob taining others by ordinary m ans so ' numerous and great, that tbe uuds coatribated for the re lief o tbe poor can accomplish but liftlc in pur chasing tbe necessaries of life. la a written report from the Clotbirg Bureau ' it appears that -there ate more than three thou sand females in this city who are eel-king employ-' men t from the Government in vain, and tbattbncv nhoobtkiu woikare not fall v. employed. The v ages receiTtd for their work will not enable tht se pour women to procure a sufficiency of the plainest food for themselves and children. Wiih out as-istancv, then, . from the city and country generally, many instances of actual starrstioc n.Uit have occurred. Our City Council bai made most liberal appropriations for the purchase of supplies, both for gratuitous distribution and for sal at cost but tbr agents employed tor tho pur pose have cot been able to procure the quantity of provitient rt-qniied. Under these circumstances, we feel .hat it 0Ui- duty to appeal to onr fcllow-citiz-ns throagh out t'Je Ctwfederate States, to forward, v. it hout delay,. coatributt'i03 cf moo ay and ecppliep to the army Committee of this aociatioa. Si ace -the commsreemntof the war this Committee baa labored zeaiouslv and faithfully for tbe temporal and spiritual welfare of our doldiers and their fami lies, and tbe successor our glorious cause. Let those soldiers not be discouraged now, upon tbe eve of our severest,' and, as we trust, oar last aud most glorious campaign, for want of the gener ous eympatby and support of their friends at , home. .. Shipments made to Roger Martin, Sopcrintcnd cnt,"dr tfai. P. Munford, Chairman of tbe Armv Committee, will be-promptly attended to. .
