panionsbip! Ii is ooly upon the supposition
that the radicals intend no reconciliation, no
restoration of friendly feeling, that we can
account for the incessant exhibition of in
tense horroi and disgust on the part of the
B.'ixk Republican journals for the people of
the Confederacy. Jn one Issue of an Abo
Jition sheet, we find them denounced as
."Atgerine pirates," ';Rebel demons," who
inflict '-fiendish tortures" cpon their "fam
isting prisoners," and the West' and' North
ani called npon to "overrun that pestiferous
region and tramp out of existence those
barbarians of modern history," the 1 God
forsaken claa" that with their "awful crimes
against liberty and humanity" have ' born
fie J the loyid citizens o( the United States
by more than barbaric" conduct.
These railers know that the Southerners
sr neither better nor worse than the north
erner?, o far a regards the general attri
butes of civilized humanity. But the inten
tion is lo cultivate a feeling of antipathy
teween the sections, and hence this habit
cf denunciation. It cannot be lor the pur
pose of inspiring the" soldiers of the nor;h
with martini fury, for (he brave man is
trnveot when be confronts a foe that he
rei pects, not one that he despises and ab
hors. The soldiers of a good cause are in
a ted when hatred is suggested to them as
tho incentive to exertion, and the opprobri
um that is cast upon the personal charac
eristics of Southerners serves but to inten
sify the honors of civil strife, and to cancel
ill hope of luture amity.
It was erroneously stated a few days ago,
that the Betel authorities had refused to re
tve Northern contributions to relieve the
i?cerai prisoners at Kicnmond ; and imme
diately a howl went forth from the Radical
' press. To illustrate the ridiculous nature of
inese baseless accusations, fl is sufficient to
ol eerve than the error in this case originated
wi th the Federal officers in charge of the
charitable mission, who requested the ad
mission of "commissaries" Into Richmond.
The Rebels, astonuhed by this remarkable
request, and naturally objecting ' lo the
introduction of Federal officers within their
lo:-iiGcaUonf, declined the proposed visit ;
but when tfcey ascertained that the "com
missaries" were commissary stores, mere
"ilesh and mutton, beeves and goats," and
not alive, substantial, wide awake and pry
ing Yankees, they withdrew the interdict
i' f n i t i . n ii
aru coruiany acquiesces, in laci jir. uuiu.
lbs Rebel Commissioner, seems to be doing
eierjthiiig in his power to further the bn
mine intensions of the North in regard to
the prisoner. He has given written assur
arce that all supplies will be received at
- City Point, and delivered to the prisoners
lo whom they are addressed.
The radical re vilers should be shamed
into something like decency, and made to
.understand that an enlightened people can
wage war withoci adding mere scurrility
and tongue-assault to , the sufficiently de
plorable necessiiies . of the battlefield
Vhen our ririie strength becomes exhaust
ed, and th v war degenerates on both sides
to a sqoabhle among boys and women, then
will be the appropriate time for the scolds

Bank RoBBsa The banking office of W.
G. Sterling, Esq., a few doors from this
office was entered on Friday morning, and
a large burglar and fire proof safe of Liliie's
patent blown open. The event attracted
a crowd as soon as it was discovered, the
news spreading tike wildfire.
' Mr. Sterling was at work there till after
eleven on Thursday evening.- After that
hour Ihe burglars entered and ' drilled
ihrough the chilled door, filled the lock
with powder, and blew it open. 4The door
was a perfect wreck, the cement blown to
atoms over the floor, the iron cracked and
broken, and the door thrown open with
such force as lo break the window sill,
against which it struck. It is said that the
explosion was beard in various parts of the
town about four o'clock Friday morning.
The money from the counter and drawer,
used in the bank the day previous, was
taken, a few hundred dollars, Mr. Sterling
says, a roll of S17,5t0 being left safe, in the
back part of a pigeon hole, where it had
lain pressed back for some time, and saved,
no doubt, by being covered by the flying
cement dust. No clue yet to the robbers.
It is a bold affair, by practiced hands, as
none but the most highly tempered "67"
in skilled hands could have so easily proved
a "Lillie Chilled Burglar Proof" useless.
The opening of Mr. Mordeoai's safe by
boaring the lock entirely out, a week before,
and the reports of "old handfc about" in
Sunbury and other towns down the river,
had not aroused our citizens. They are
awake now, for a while Rttor d of the

that he should send her such a gift, she
cast it to ihe earth. When it touched the

Brass's Situation and Groins
The Atlanta Register, on the 5ih, has
following touching ihe "situation :"
"The fact must be conceded that just now
there is no imperative reason why Brasg
should give battle. If he can chooe his
own ground, and thus equalize the two op
posing armies, ibero would be no danger
of defeat ; in fact, victory would be abso
lutely certain. He may now be outnum
bered, and it is thought by military men
that he should merely hold the enemy at
bay, until coming events compel, as they
mnst, the retreat from Chattanooga.
Prei-idenl Davis meant all that he said
when he declared that before the campaign
closed our army would repossess Tennessee.
But there are accideutsin war asainot which
no human genius and fore-thought can
provide. Such an event might occur in
East Tennessee ; but if we read ariahi what
ha been done, and the movements now
being executed, and no disaster befall de
tachments of our armies, the withdrawal of
troops from Chattanooga becomes, at no
distant day, inevitable. He will first seek
to crush Bragg, but it happens, whatever
Bragg's enemies may 6ay of him, that they
concur in ascribing to hitn those qualities
which made Fabius immortal, and rendered
Washington's military reputation as admir
able as his onseifish patriotism. Bragg
knows when and bow to retreat. Tennes
see can be redeemed without a battle at
Chattanooga. In accomplishing ibis result,
a retrograde movement may be made, but
it will be that of a chess-player, who loses
a pawn to catch a 'caMle.'
"We have no authority forihe suggestion
that a retrograde movement may occur, and
only speculate npon nets wnicn appear
alike in Northern and Southern journals."

The Confederate Slates steamer Coruubia,
which was run ashore by her commander
Capt. Gale, off Wilmington, N. C, on Sun

cargo for the Government. Cap;. Gale re
mained on board and was taken by the
Federals, who got the vessel off wuh her
cargo uninjured. The rest of the crew
made their escape to Wilmington. The
next morning about I o'clock, thoi Banshee,
from Bermuda, whiles running in, was
chased by one blockader in front of her,
one abrest and one cstern, all firing rapidly.
One of ihem got within thirty yards of her

the Banshee defied them to catch him, and
got his vessel into port safe, with the ex

THIS Journal, which is now in the six'y
second year of iu existence, is a thorough
goinf,, independent and fearless advocate
of genuine practical democracy. It main
tains the equal rightof all men to justice
and freedom; it earnestly approves the war
for the Union; it holds up the bands ol our
brave soldiers in the fi-ld; and it opposes
treason in all shapes, whether open, as at
the Sou'h, or covert or sneaking, as at the
nor h. At th same time it is the enemy
of all undue exercise of power, or all kinds
of political jobbery and corruption and
insists uoon economy in expenditures, and
a ttrict adherence lo the constitution. -Throogh'ont
the war it has advocated ihe
the most v gorons prosecution of ii, but as
the war draws to a cloe political qot-siiona
take the ascendent. A more stupendous
difficult aud interesting problem was nev

the restitution of ihe revolting states to
iheir allegiance. It will require all the
tatesmanh'p and wiidom of tne na'ion
to bfiii" i: to a satisfactory solution. On
that point the "Evening Post",wilI take
definite grounds, and endeavor to bring
about a condition of niveral freedom
and real democracy.-. Peded to no par

whole country, it will use whatever energy
and influence in the defence of the great
principles of human right and human ele
