main line of railroad between lticlimond and
Fredericksburg, dividing at Sexton's jtinetini,

munication, instead of being by Potomac and
Aipiia Creek, thence to Faliiiniilh, is by Urange
and Alexandria, direct fur Washington. Our
present front, tho Hnpidan, rising along llio'
blue liidgo mountains, flows in an easterly di
rection, und unites Willi Ilie ltiipahaiiniick nt
U. 8. ford. Along ibis line. Uen. Leo holds

Alarm In Mississippi and Mobile.
The fall of Vicksbnrg lias occasioned great
nlnrm throughout Mississippi and Alabama, and
the rebels seem altogether at fault as to what
they shall do to protect themselves from the
consequences which they regard as certain to
follow. Major General D. II. Maury, com
iiiiiiiding nt Mobile, issued a proclamation to
the cititens ol I lint place July 8th, warning
them that tho calamity nt Vicksbnrg had a pe
culiar significance for them ; that Mobile might
bo attacked in a short time, that the troops
must be immediately armed for protection, aud
that able bodied slaves must be set to work on
the defenses Immediately. This arming of
slaves by tho rebels will, of coarse, give a ter
rible shock to our nervous Conservatives, but
tho enemy seem to have very little regard for
the feelings of people of this class.

Tf the Cotton States shall hepnma aatlsflaJ

New York Papers on tub Biot. The
Times of July 20th, snys of tho lata riot t
There can be no doubt that the late riots in
this city have been due in a very targe degree
to the intrigues and machinations of traitors
and rebels in the North. Whether their mo- -live
has been sympathy with the South or part
isan hatred of the Administration, the result hi
the same; they have been stimulating a
bloody civil oommotion iu the North for the
purposo of aiding the rebellion In the Sonth,
and hostility tn the draft has been the mum
lover which they have employod. . A draft for
military service must always be obnoxious in
any ooiffilry, although do one can doubt that,
properly managed, it is the most eqnitablo mode
nf securing that service whioh is absolutely
iniiispensamo 10 every nation, r or our gov
ernment now to abandon or suspend the draft,'
in consequence of tho violent hostility It baa
encountered, would bo simnlo abdication of Ita
most essential functions. It would bo a sur

In the services of its tititens. We are glad
the Government at Washington does not for
moment entertain the thought of each a ttep.
The laws of the nation must be enforced. Tho
druft must go 011, aud the official authority
must be supported by adequate military furoa
in .parrying it nut.
As nn offset tn the foregoing, we quote tho
following from tho Herald t
It is a very noticeable feature of the courso
of the niggorhead papers that they lose no op
portunity to give aid and comfort to the rebels.
Fhis fact wns amply illustrated last week, when
the Tribune, Times, and Post, vied with each
other in representing the outbreak in this city ,
as the result nf a rebel plan for raising a revo
lution in the North in favor of Jeff. Davis. If
these abolition assertions were true, what
greater encouragement could Jeff. Davis de
sire ! Overwhelmed as the rebel leaders most
have been by their succession of signal defeats,
what other news could have brought them such
comfort and consolation as the intelligence of
an immense popular uprising at the North In
behalf of their Confederacy? This la un
doubted1)' what tho Abolitionists Intend. They .
know that the rebels are beaten. ' They know
that unless something is.douu to proluug tlie
war the L'niou will be restored before their con
spiracy to nbolitiooiie every acceded State can
le accomplished. They know that la prolong
the war it is nooessary to iuspirit Jeff. Davis
and neakvu our armies. . ,
