Nay. speak no ill—a kindly word
Cun never leave a sting behind,
And oh! to breathe each tale we’ve heard,
Is far beneath a noble mind.
Full oft a better .seed is sown
liy choosing thus the kinder plan;
For, if but little good be known,
Still, let us speak the best we can.
Give me the heart that fain would hide—
Would fain another’s fault efface;
How can it plea.>!ure human pride
To prove humanity but ba.'se ?
No; let us reach a higher mood,
A nobler estimate of man;
Be earnest in the search for good,
And speak of all the best we can.
Then speak no ill—but lenient be
To other’s failings as your own;
If you’re the 6rst a fault to see,
Be not the first to make it known;
For life is but a passing day—
No lip niay tell how brief its span—
Then, oh! the little time we stay.
Let’s speak of all the best we can.

CHARLOTTE, N. C.
Look Out !—We make an extract from a letter
received a day or two since, from Hendersonville,
N. C., to put our citizens on the look out for
auspicious characters :
“The emmissaries of the Bl&ck Republicans are
among us. They set fire to Farmer’s Mil's on
Tuesday night, and to the out houses attached to
his hotel on Wednesday night. His loss is about
81,200. Be on the look out. During the public
meeting here a fellow who was suspected of being
concerned in cutting down the flag pole at Flat
Rock, was treated to the ancient mode of loco
motion, a ride on a rail, last night. The Vigilance
Committee, known as the ‘‘Trotters,” arrested ore
or two more men suspected of being birds of the
same feather. What their fate was I have not
learned.”
Patriotic Se.ntiments.—The Governor of
South Carolina, in a late Proclamation to the vol
unteers of that State, u.ses the following patriotic
latiguage :
i “Soldiers of South Carolina ! Hold yourselves
in readiness to march, at the word, to the tomb of
Washington; and swear that no Northern Goths
; and Vandals shall ever desecrate its sacred pre-
j cincts, and that you will make of it an American
; Mecca, to whicK the votaries of freedom and inde-
' pendence, from the South, shall make their pil-
j grimage thrcagh all time to come. Let the .son4 of
South Carolina answer to the call from the sons of
Col. Howard who led the Maryland Line in tri
umph over the bloody battlefield of our Cowpens.
Let them know that we will return that blood with
full interest, and let them feel that they are now,
as they were then, our brothers March to \ ir-
ginia and lay your heads upon the bosom of this
mother of Statos, and hear her great heart beat
with new impulses for a renewed and glorious
independence.
Surely the good and the virtuon.s of the North
ern States cannot sanction the lawless and brutal
despotism now inaugurated at Washington.
Be readyl Stand by your arm.«—mark time to
the tap of indepeniience, and at the word, march
forward and onward tf» the Borders. Our glorious
old sister, North Carolina, is with you and her
freomon are in arn^s. Join them in the struggle
for defence; and let tyrants know that tluTe are
n)en who can mfike them hear the ring and feel
the weight of Southern steel. ’

WILL IT BE A LONG STRUGGLE?
Will the war be brief or protracted ? This is
the inquiry on every tongue. The probabilities
are very much balanced. The sauje individuals
hold o[iinions to-day which they cumbatted yester
day. l>id we belong to the European system of
politics, the great Powers would interfere to pre
vent a war j-u detriutetital to the general intere^t.s
of Christendom as ours will be. They will hesi
tate to interfere on a theatre so rentote; and ours,
in all probability, will, Auieitcan like, be a “free
The great material interests of the North will
be far more seriously aflected than tiiose of the
Sojth. The agriculturist is more independent
than the manufacturer, and eveu profits by a war
which rums all other classes. The South can
stand a war aUiiost unharmed that would prostrate
any other nation. While the South would sufi'or com
paratively little, the North must suffer universallv
by a protracted strugg^ anda;> that sectiotj is the
aggressor, reason would argue that hostilitie.s will i honestly work
not be long continued. ^o be a'slave.”
But, as it required great and potential causes to
break up so strong a Union and so great a Gov
ernment, it must be recollected that these same
causes may operate to make the war a terrible and
a long one. It is nut a war of punctilio between
sovereigns; nor of conflicting interests between
rival nations : admitting of ndjustmeut and com
promise. It is a war of passions between bating
aiid hated races. It is a war of fanaticism
and subjugation on the part of the North; of scorn
and cotiteinptuoiiai hatred on the part of the vSouth.
These angry passions ar‘ uncontrollable, transport
ing and irrepressible. 1 he South would sacrifice
everything it holds dear before it would succumb
to the authority of the despi.sed N«(rlh; and the i
North will forget all schetn(;s of .gain, and throw
its ledgers into the tire, to indulge its fanatical
hatred of slavery, to “cru.sh out” the slave-holder.
Reasoning fVom the past, the probabilities are
very unfavorable to a speedy termination of hostili
ties, The safest policy for the South is to prepare
for a long continued war. Her preparations
NORTHERN FANATICS.
The New York Herald, of the 24th, is filled
with the speeches and doings of the mnddened
and cowardly fanatics in that city of wickedness
and abominations, on Saturday, the 20th.
One speaker, William Curtis Noyes, referred to
one of South Carolitui’s nt'blest and most gifted
sons, J. C. Calhoun, in the most insulting and
outrageous manner, and then he and his fanatical
hearers gave (hrte yrouui for him I None but a
set of accursed and cotoartH^ scoundrels would

these (hmnnif in human form go to South Carolioa
as they intend to do, aud groan for Cmlhoao T
Axother speaker, ex-Judge Pierrepont, said ;
“ l*'ellow-citi7.ens : What does all this mcan ?
Ls it that our Southern brethren have been tram*
pled on, and their rights invaded ? [Cries of no,
no.] Jx-'t me tell you what it is. Every Southern
traitor hates a Northoru working man, and says he
ouirht to be a slave. They hate the man who

Could the devil himself invent a more diaboli
cal lie than the above, uttered by the ex-Judge )!’
The .ocamp in the form of njan knew he uttered
an infernal lie. Thus it is that the abolition
scoundrels try to bolster up « mean cause and try
to get men to fight for them by telling outrageous
and damning lies. Can a cause which they have
to sustain by lying be successful? No! no!
Providence never has nor never will permit it.
Another speaker, Senator Spinola, said:
“('an wo cocrce them back into the Union? I
don’t say we can, but we cati conquer theoi, and
when we do so, every dollar of property in ihoso

SpKClT-.ATfNO IN Pravtsionp.—Nearly all
articles of provisions have recently taken a sudden
rise in price, owing, we presume, to the fact of a
threatened, if not yet actual, blockade of our p^rts.
The ri«=e in price is all wrong—and something
should be done to put a stop to it. A similar
attempt to raise the price of provisions was *nade
in Baltimore Irist week The aufhorities notified
the dealers that i* wryild not be allowed, and the
merchants immediately agreel that provif^ions
should be bought and sold at a fair price. There
is no necessity for forxl to go np here—there is
plentv in the connrrv and our opinion is. that they
will eome down to a level little if at all ahove the
usual rates. Everybody is entitled to a fair profit,
but self-preservation refjuires that no undue ad-
varta_-e shotild be nllowed to be tak»*n
We rnnimrnd this matter to tbe consideration
 f the autburitic-ii.
ADVICE TO VOLUNTEERS
A writer who signs himself “An Old Soldier,”
gives tbe tollowing advicc to young soldiers:
1. Remeinbor that in a catnpaiirn more men die
from sickne.'s than iVoin the bullet.
2. liine yiHir blaiik(‘t with one thic'kiiess of
brown drilling. 'I'his adds but four ounces in
weight, and doubles tbe warinth.
Buy a small India rubber blanket (only Sl,-
50) to lay on the ground or to throw over your
shoulders when on guard duty during a rain storm.
Most of the eastern troops are provided with these.
Straw to lie on is not alway.s to be had.
4. The Viest military hat in use is the light
colored soft felt hat, the erowm being sufficiently
high to allow sp:»ee for air over the brain. You
cat) fasten it up as a continental in fair weather,
or turn it down whet) it is wet or v>ry sunny.
5. Let your beard grow so as to protect your
throat and lungs.
0. Keej) your entire person clean, this prevents
fevers and bowel complaitits in warm climatcs j
Wash your body each day, if po.ssible. j
Avoid strong eoflee and oily meat. Cen. Scott |
said that the too free use of these f'together with j
neglect in keeping the skin elcan^ cost many a I
soldier his life in .^Iexico. )
7. A sudden check of prespir.ition by chilly |
or night air often causes fever and lcath. When '
thus exposed do not forget your blanket. '
H(I\V TtlK NoRTHF.RN AhMIIS .are tore r>E i
fe.atkh.—The Biehmond Examiner thinks the j
Northern troops will have enough to to fight the j
Southern climate, to say nothing of men in arms, i
It says: |
If there were no men to fight sueh invaders, the ^
climate for tbe next seven months would put then) i
to route. Think of what enemies thai vast family '
tf Southern fevers alone would be. if onee let loo.^e i
among nn armv of onion-raiser.^, from Connecticut,
haymakers from Verntont. ]iumpkin-growers
from New Hampshire, and clam catcher.'? from
Bhode Island. A lively sp».ctricle they would
present if yellow jack, break fnme, intermittent,
bilious, congestive, swamp, nnd a score of other
fevers were to seize them. They would be smitten
worse than the Assyrians ever were The fate of '
the Amalekites would be mil l cotnpared with
that of an invading army of Yankees, if they were
to venture Sotith in the Spring. Summer or Fall
Imonths. Jeff I>avis’ amiv might staid still and
let the Yankees and the fevers have u fair fight.
Let anv man travel f»v land or water from New
Orleans to N' tv York, a few davs after the family
of Southern fevers have commenced their Spring.
Summer, and Fall eampai^ns and watch the nii-
gratory hen’s a’ld floek of unaeclim ttf'd Yankees
who dash Northward pallid with terror, and sav
that he is afraid of an invading army of Yankees.
The cli mate of the Southern Couftfderacy pro
tects it if there were not hundreds of thousands
of brave men there, trained from boyhood to old
age to wield with deadly riceuracy the rifle, the
(’olt. the bowie knife, and the musket.
The JMiibtdelphia Knquirer thinks that the
people of the Sf utli are doomed to di.sappoinfment.
It ‘^avs we all looked for bread riot.«. and lo ! we
find them all united in one policy. The pc;ple of
the South understand the matter quite well. They
understand very well that war is a safe means of
avoiding insurrection in any country. So long as
the people of the North can sustain and feed an
army which shall contain all their pauper population
and men out of employment, they w’ill be safe from
their nread riots. But let them look well to it,
that they do not fail in this. Keep the money
flving and you will keep the mob quiet. But
who is to p«y for it all? That is the question.
And how long enn tbe money last?
In 1 >on(](.n there are no less than twenty thou-
s^and pliy.siciati.sjand eighteen hundred uudcrtakers.
: Some of the speakers went so far a.s to hint some
j thing about our Southern wotuen, sentiments that
j W(>uld tn.'ike the blo4>dofa Siuithern man boil over.
Our gallant Southern soldiers will fight when
j they nii'et tho.''C filthy wretches with a bravery
' before unknown. Will they not be fightittg for
I heir wive.s, sisters, sweethearts, profMjrty, and
everything else that it* dear to them ?
Old Uennett, the editor of the Herald, says
that Lincoln intends to send an invading army to
ilieliinond and take it; aud then they intend to
take Ball igh, North Carolina ; and then Columbia,
South Carolina ; and last, Montgomery. Alabama,
liy that time, ho says, the “ref>els” will be pretty
well lick(‘d, and ready to beg their masters for
peace and give up tlioir property.
We can’t help laughing. What docs the fool
think we will be doing nff that tiiiic ? Let them
inarch. Why don’t thev start ?
INTERVIEW WITH WINFIELD SCOTT.
//if Vifirii ahont (he Ila/-.
The Hichujond I'^iiquirer says: gentleman
»hfisc character for intelJigej)ce and integrity is
well known in the State, has just reached Rich-
tnond from Washingt»n city, where he spent a
d;iy. While there he had a cotiversatiou with
(ieii Winfield Scott. 'L'hia individual spoke free
ly of the condition of the country, whieh he pro-
le.ssed to reun- t. He wiid, however, that “he had
always recoirnized bis allegiance as due to the Uni
ted States of .\ini'rica; that his cotirse was nearly
ended, but that while he lived, he should always
fight fur the ‘stars and stripes.’ He went on to
speak of his having been “lately insulted by a Uich-
mond friend, who begun to read some preposition
to him, whi( Il he would not permit hi:n to finish.”
'i’his was understood to be a proposition to resign
his coiitmission as Com:nander-in-Chief of the
United States Army, and to accept the leadership
of the \’ir;rinia forces, (ileneral Scott declared
that while “he did not profess to speak the policy
of the (lovernment, be believed that they would
not mareh un army of invasion into any of the ae-
eeb il States, but that they would take Forts
Moultrie and Sumter and Harper’s Ferry at erery
crist They would al.-o keep open the line of
communication between the Ohio river and the
Federal t’apital."
Such in the substance and nearly the exact
words used by fleneral Scott, on Tuesday last, to
a citizer; of this State, whose assertions may be re
lied on
Marching an army of fifteen oi twenty thousand
men into >’irginia to retake and occupy Harper's
Ferry, ac'or«ling to tien. Srott, is not “invasion.”
This may be done at “any Cf>'‘t,’'and it is fair'to
prosuiHc it will be ionc very sojn. if it ran bt done
LiKroi.N’s Patriotism.—The Albany “Argus”
makes a point of the fact when ever a foreign
enemy wagel wflr upon the country, the party of
which Lincoln is now the representative has taken
sides with the foe. The only war in which they
have any heart is a war against their Southern
brethren. 'I bat fearless and patriotie journal, the
New York “I>ay Book,” in some severe comments
upon the fact.'^ stated by the “Argus” calls attention
particularly to the course cf Lincoln himself on
the floor of the ’ongreif i of the Cnited States, on
the i-ubject of tbe .Mexican war. Lincoln not only
denounced bis country’s war with Mexico, but did
all he could to ctJt off the supplies even while our
bnive soldiers were in the midst of the enemy’s
country, and then leave them to perish there or
fight with ft want more terrible than the Mozican
ho.st.
Amkkic.ans the HE.\LTiHEirr People in the
World.—De Bow's mortality statistics, compiled
from (he last census, show that tlie people of the
United States are the healthieit oq tbe globe.
The deaths are yer year, one and a half
per cent, of tbe population.—In England the ratio
i.ii( nearly two j»er cent.—Virginia and N. Carolina
are the hcaltbie.st of the States, and have (588
inhabitants over 1W years or age.
