In the Liatrpoot Daily Pod of October 81st is
a paragraph, as follows, under the above head:
"We have reason to believe that ships belong
ing to,,tha Vatted States, now leaving this port,
are allbeing .pntin a :condition to repel any
attack that may be made upon them while on
the voyage to . New York or other Northern
ports, by the southern privateers. The merchant
vessels here arestrengthened in the upper decks
and bulwarks, and are pierced in order to carry
guns, all of which are of the - most improved
construction. 'Experienced gunners have been
engaged to work the cannon on board, and
initiate the crew of ,each vessel into the art of
gunnery, so that, should the vessels be attacked by
privateer; they would not be surrendered without a
struggle. 'The e,quliornents of these vessels, 'many
of which are now on, their way across the At
lantic, while others are ready to sail, are such
that privateers Will catch tarters should they
come near iiny, :of these quiet-loooking met;
chantmen, the cargoes of which (so we are told)
replenish many exhausted ' war depots. One
ship 4919'0n her way is said to carry 'lB 82's,
which, used, 'yroUld settle the account
of any southern,privateer afloat." It was full
time for English merchantmen to be put in
proper trim for repelling the southern pirates.
It was evidently the design of the adminis
tration that this should be a bloodless war, lilt
were possible.' It was' never the wish of 'the
true Wends of this Government to imbrue , their
hands is their brother's blood, nor to run off
their negroes ! Causes arose beyond the con

been the penalty, but where offered no lives

would produce results in many places' equally (
brilliant and effective with the demonstration
at Beaufort. There has been a general and deep
feeling of regret that the events did not indicate
this active policy spoken of by Mr. Chase ; but

With this assurance that the policy of the
Executive is to advance with activity and
vigor everywhere, and especially on the Poto
mac, universal satisfaction will be felt. Troops
are pouring steadily into 'Washington at the
I rate of not less than ten , thousand weekly, and
their condition and efficiency are at the very
highest mark. The gain of war, material was
never so rapid on our side as now, and being
aosurred that this vast aggregate of farce is not
to lie up in idleness for the; winter,, the, higheat
hopes will be entertained. -The whole line of
the potomac has become darkened with mis
fortune and unpleasant incidents from the hour
the war opened until now. Norfolk, Haiper's
Ferry, and twenty other places wldeh we' have
not the heart to mention, call aloud for ven
geance. The whole of Eastern Virginia is get
ting an odor with us not unlike, that hanging
over Sumter and Charleston, and if it requires
a million of men to take Richmond, the nation
would gladly gather them if the government
win say that they may go there when gathered.
The mask battery business of the Potomac calls
loudly for vindicative justice. The rebels had
a present of two thousand five hundred cannon
made them at the outset, an& our poor soldiers
baVe done little along the Potomac for fora eight
dreary months but to run foul of some of these
guris, suffer losses, and retreat without taking
them. They will be taken some day, however,
and when they are captured let them, ap be
sent again to Norfolk, to be melted in one vast
heap where the navy-yard once was but where
there shall be no more shipbuilding, and refuge
for the smallest craft forever.
When Congress meets it will be found that
the full compliment of half a million of soldiers
will be made up. This number is not enough.
If by that time there has been no movement
against the rebels in Virginia, let at least two
finndred thousand more men be immediately
authorized. Already there have, bee, several
instances of the rejection of new regiments, but
let the first three days of the season See 1111 act
passed permitting the War Department,tto ac
cept every regiment which is offered until the
Union army reaches Richmond. When that
point is attained there, will probably be no,
necessity for further increase of the army ; but
it is suicidal to stop,the growth of, the 'artily

=blithe of war the enemy have not only failed
to ektemd their occupancy of our soil, but new
States and territories have been added to our
confederacy,, wlfile instead of their threatening
with of unchecked conquest they have been
driven at more than one point, to assumingthe
dekusive and upon'a fair comparison between
the two belligerents ali to men, military means
and financial condition, the Confederate States
are relatively much stronger now than when
the struggle commenced.
Re speaks in high terms of the people of Mis
souri -tea hbve condqeted the .war in the face
of almost . unparalleled difficulties, with a spirit.
; and success alike worthy of themselves and or
tilt great cause in which they are struggling:—
Finding that the Confederate States were about
to be invaded through Kentucky and that her
people being derived into a mistaken
security were unarmed and in danger of be
ing subjugated by the .Federal traces our
stories were marched into that State to repel
ale enemy and prevent their occupation of cer
rain stratagetic points which would have given
them great advantages iu the Contest, a step
which was justified not oily by the necessities
of self defence on the part of the confederate
States, but also by a desire to aid the people of
Kentucky. It was never intended by the
confederate' States' to conquer or coerce that
State, but on the contrary it was declared by
our Generals that they would withdraw their
troops if the federal government would do like
wise. Prbclamation was also made of the desire
to respect the neutrality of 'Kentucky and the
intention to abide by the wishes of her
people as soon as they were free to express their
opinions. These declarations were approved by
me and I should regard it as oue of toe best et=
recta of the march of our troops into Kentucky,
iflt should end in giving to her people liberty
of choice and a tree opportunity to decide their
own destitty according to their own 'will, while,
he says, the army has been chiefly instrumental
in prosecuting the great contest ; the navy has
also been effective in full proportion to its
lie speaks of the difficulties attending mail
transportation, someof which can be overcome
only by time and the hnproved condition of
cue country on the restoration of peace, but
others by legislation.
As to the financial system it has worked well
so far, and promises good results for the future.
By the extent that TreasUry notes may be is
sued, the Government is enabled to borrow
money without interest, and thus facilitate the
conduct of the war. This extent is measured
by the portion of the field of circula
tion which these notes can be made to occupy.
The proportion of the field thus occupied de
pends agEn upon the amount of the debts for
which they are receivable, and when due not
only to the. Confederate and State governments,
but also to corporations and individuals are
payable in this medium. A large amount of it
may be circulated at par. There is every rea
son to believe that the Confederate treasury
note is fast becoming such a medium. The pro
viBlo/1 that these notes'shall be convertible into
confederate stock bearing eight per cent. inter
est at the pleasure of the holder insures them
against a depreciation below the value of that
stock and no considerable fall in that value need
be feared so long as the interest eh. ll be punc
tually paid. The punctual payment of this in
terest has been secured by the act passed by you at
last session imposing such a rate of taxation as
must provide sufficient means for that purpose.
For' the succetistul prosecution of this war it is
indespenseble that the means of transporting
tiroope and military supplies be furnished as far
as possible in such a manner es not to interrupt
the commercial intercourse between our people,
nor, place a check upon their productive ener
In another part of the message he says we
have already two main systems of through
,transportation from the North to the South, one
from Richmond along the seabord, .the other
through Western Virginia to New. Orleans. A
third might be-secured by completing a link of 40
miles between Danville in Virginia and Green
borough in North Carolina, the construction
of this comparatively short link would give us
a through route from north to south in the in
terior of the 'Confederate States , and give us
access to a population and to many resources
from which we are now in a great measure de
barred. If, he says, further on, we husband our
means and make judicious use of our resources
it would be difficult to fix a limit to the period
chiring which we could conduct a war against
the adversary whom we now encounter.—
The very efforts which he makes to isolate
and invade us must exhaust his means
whist they serve to complete the circle and di
versify the productions of our industrial system.
Thereconstruction which he seeks to effect by
arms becomes daily more and more impossible.
Not only do the causes which induced us to
separate still exist in full force, but they have
been strengthened, and whatever doubt may
have lingered in the minds , of any must have
been completely dispelled by subsequent events.

But not content with violating our rights under
law of, nations at home, they have extended
these injuries to us within other jurisdictions.
The distinguished gentlemen whom, with
YOurapprovall. at_the last. tession, I" commis
sioned. to represent the Confederacy at certain
foreign courts, have been recently seized by the
captain of a United States ship on board a

a British ship sailing under its country's flag,
violating the riglos of embassy for most part
held sacred even amongst barbarians by seizing
our ministers whilst they were under the protec
tion and within the dominion of a neutral nation.
These gentlemen were as much under the juris
diction of the British Government upon that
ship and beneath its flag as if they had been on
its soil, and a claim on the part of the United
States to seize them in the streets of London
would have been as well founded as that to ap
prehend them where they were taken. Had
they been malefactors or citizens even of the
United States, they could not have been arrest
ed on a British ship or on British soil unless
under the express provisions of a treaty, and ac
cording to forms therein provided for the ex
tradition of criminals.
Davis _speaks, of Faulkner es having been
perfidiously arrested, and says in conducting
this war we have sought no aid and proposed
no alliances offensive or defensive abroad.
We have asked for a recognisedj place in
the great family of- nations, but in doing
so we demanded nothing for which we
did not offer a fair equivalent. The
advantages of intercourse are mutual among
nations and in seeking to establish digmnatic
relations we were only endeavoring , to place
this intercourse under the regulation of law.—
Perhaps we had the right if we had
chosen to exercise it to ask to know
whether the principle that blockades to be
binding must be effeohml so Solemnly announc
ed by the great powers of Europe at Paris
is to be generally enforced or applied
only to particular parties. Davis says
he has caused the evidence to be
collected, which prOves completely the utter
inefficiency of the proclaimed blockade of the
Southern coast, and shall direct it to be laid
before such. governments as shall afford the
means of being heard: But although'we should
be benefitted, be continues, by the enforcement
of the laws so solemnly declared by the
great powers of Europe. We are not de
pendent on that enforcement for a succesdul
prosecution of the war•. As long as hostilities
continue the Confederate States will exhibit
a steadily increasing capacity to fur
nish their troops with food, clothing and arms.
If they should be forced to forego many of
the luxuries and some of the comtorta of life
they will at least have the consolation of know
ing that they are thus daily becoming more
and more independent of of the world.
The message cooqudes as follows : „"While
the war which is waged to take from us the
right of self government, Can never attain that '
end, it remains to be seen how "far" it ,
may work a revolution in the industrial sys r ,
tern of the world which may carry -suf
fering to other lands as well as our own:-
In the meantime we shall continue this struggle
in humble dependence upon Providence from
whose searching scrutiny we cannot conceal
the secrets of our hearts and to whoa° rule we
confidently suKmit our destinies. For
the rest we shall depend upon ourselves.—
Liberty is always won where there exists the
unconquerable will tb be free, and we have
reason to know the strength that is given by a
conscious sense, not only of the magnitude but
of the righteousness of our cause."
