SECESSION RESULTS, VS. THE UNION,
In southern clime, where Degrees shine,
And cotton bale; are plenty ;
Where men are fierce, and money source,
And wharfs and harbors empty ;
Where men and boys are fall of noise,
Who boast of theft and treason,
Defy the liw, and talk of war,
Devoid of wit or reason ;
Such men of might so full of fight, ." 4 "••
Who seem chuck full of thunder ;
seep all they get, but pay no debt,
And save their strength for plunder.
Cunning and bold was one of old
He got a meet of pottage ;
One rebel fair, hung by the hair,
And he lost all his porridge.
One rebel "troop was swallowed up,"
Which caused a world-wide shouting ;
The Southern crew we must subdue ;
The world approves their routing.
They steal their arms—raise false alarms—
Commence the war at Sumter ;
They the some squibs—tell many 111)3,
Deceptions without number.
For It we think, and only wink,
They call it abolition ;
Discard the North and only froth,
And that they call secession.
Their cotton bales now take the raps
To Northern ports for shipping,
Where vessels sail by every gale,
And Yankee 3 get good picking.
Our ships go full to Johnny Ball,
and gold returns excessive;
We take the chink with nod and wink
We hold our grip, and we will ship
Slug corn as well as well as cotton,
And keep our hold upon the gold
Where negroes are forgotten.
And how they groan about a loan,
So paltry for a nation.
They can't relax their negro tax,
Nor dodge repudiation.

No ARMS FOR VTR REBELS.- Dispatches by
by the Persia state that toe ageuts of the rebel

Government is that just received from Scot
land. Certain prominent Scotch merchants
doing business in this country are responsible
for a tender of ten regiments of unequipped,
but well-built, hardy, active men, who are not
earning eleven dollars per month above their

the service of the United States for the war, be
it long or short, on condition that, at the ex

them each a bounty of land.

THE message of Governor Randall, of Wis
consin, to the Legislature of that State, is a
short, but very decided document. The fol
lowing concluding paragraph is as follows :
"The people will never consent to any cessa
tion of war, forced so wickedly upon us, until
the traitors are hung or driven into an 'gilt>
minous exile. This -war begun where Charles
ton is—it should end where Charleston was.
The Supreme Ruler can but smile upon the
efforts of the law-loving, government-loving,
liberty-loving people of this land, in resisting
the disruption of this Union. These gathering
armies are instruments of His vengeance, to
execute His judgments—they are His Rails,
wherewith, on God's great Southern threshing
floor, He will pound rebellion for its sins.
ALEXANDER W. RANDALL.
A GIANT DESPOTISM subdivided into countless
petty despotisms covers the whole South, illus
trative of which the Louisville Journal, relates
the following case of a distinguished Tennes
sean,, as developed in a conversation with a
prominent citizen of Louisville :
"Lately," said he, "I thought I was worth
ten thousand dollars, now I am worth nothing.
I owe a sum of money, and I carefully laid by
every dollar in my power for the purpose of
meeting my obligations and saving my proper
ty ; but all that I laid by has been taken from
me. They have raised military companies in
my neighborhood, and,, although my opinions
were known, they levied upon me, as they did
upon others, whatever they pleased, and I had
to furnish the required amount or be spotted
and persecuted—probably driven out of the
State as art abolitionist. Any dozen or even
half a dozen secessionists in any part of Ten
nessee canband themselves together at pleasure,
as thousands of dozens are doing, and levy the
most oppressive and enormous black mail for
secession purposes upon secessionists and Union
men alike, making each man's tax opposite his
name upon a piece of paper, and then present
ing the paper with the foot-pad gourmand of
stand and deliver! And from the authority of
the relentless and remorsele§s robbery there is
no appeal; no power exists to which the suf
ferers can euccessfully turn for protection or
redress.'' , •
It is by such oppressive forced contributions
that most of the troops of the Southern Con
federacy have thus far been raised. How long
can such a system be continued ?

A. special dispatch from Williamsport to the I

this place was reinforced by two pieces of can

"Mysterious movements have been going on
in camp for the past two days. The ferryman
was warned to permit nothing except the mail
to pass after eleven o'clock to-day. The camp
is guarded with great care, neither friend nor
foe being permitted to visit it.
"Only two companies have been ou parade
since Friday. All this may be only a mark to
cover a retreat to falling waters, or it may be
with a view of preparing to cross the river into
"Our home guards keep perpetual watch, and
stand ready at any moment to dispute their
passage over the river. The, camp is in a very
unsafe position, being in the toe of a horse
shoe-shaped piece of grouud, whcre Its provi

easily cut off, and it is evident that this is what
Col. Allen fears.

miles this side of Harper's Ferry, has been

"We learn that one thousand of the troops
of Letcher, the pseudo Governor of Virginia,
arrived at Webster; five hundred of them were
cavalry, and they had a dozen wagon loads of
arms with them. It was stated that there was
another thousand to follow them immediately,
and that their purpose was to proceed shortly
to attack Wheeling.
"On Sunday morning the 2ecesslonists burn
ed two of the railroad bridges between Farm
ington and Mannington, on the Baltimore road,
and later in the day tlae reports were that they
were busy tearing up the track at different
points between those places and Grafton. It
is thought that the reaaou of the bridges Leing
burned was that the rebels anticipated an at
tack from that quarter.
"On Saturday night a body of Moundsville
Union men took possession of the railroad de
pot and t legraph office there. Dia,* Barry,
who has been for a long while the ❑gent of the
road, was understood to bo strongly enlisted in
the secession business, and the people thought
it was about time they blocked his game, and
they accordingly did so. The volunteer com
panies at Moundsville and Elizabethtown have
refused to muster under the secession officers.
They will elect new officers who are known to
be good Union men.
From a correspondent, whom we deem re
liable, we learn that all the Federal troops, ex
cept a guard, left Camp Carlide, at half-pabt
six o'clock ou Monday morning, with ten
rounds of cartridge:, for the East, on the Bal
