And nothing stirs or sighs In mountains,
Hnrth sleeps but her heart wakcth, till the

Davis throujfi their State. The majority
ollhe whites of that region cannot be said
to love the Union. They have fought
ngalnst the Government, and clung with
tenacity to the black cornerstone of the
Confederacy but they discovered the real
character and dcrlgns of Davis two years
ago, and have opposed him steadily and
resolutely ever since. When he fled from
Richmond wc surmised that instead of find
ing mntrrlal for another army in Georgia,
he would meet scowling faces and minds
determined to bring him to a bitter ac
count. Difeated rebels generally turn
upon their leaders and hold them responsi
ble for disaster ; but in this cuse, we suv
pect. the wroth of despair was aggravatid
by the discotcry that the chiif of chivalry
was a piltry humbug, whose valor was ex
hausted with the vocabulary of tho stump.
The Georgians, apparently, did not care
to conceal the fuglthe nnd would not fire
a shot in Ills defense. He had nn more se
curity there. In the my heart of his vaunt
ed Confederacy, than he would have found
in the center of Pennsylvania. Now had
he pnssesred ony of those manly traits
which dignify adversity had he beea as
ready to brave the danger which lie urged
others to encounter, as the young Cheva
lier, for rxnmple, he would haxe befn con
ceahd by devoted adherents, or surrounded
by mm who would haxe died to save him
from n felon's fatr. The Giorglun will
not go into mourning for so mean an im
poster. The President or the Snutlern Conftd-eropyl-on
his woy tn 'Wushlpptnn under
a strnnp pnnrd. lie will go via Macon,
Atlanta, Clint tannnpn, Nashville, Louis
ville, Wheeling and Harper's Ftrry to the
scene of trial. He bos been anxious to
carry the war to the banks of lhe Ohio.
He will po thither himself, passing the
graves of thousands whom lie sent to open
the way under Rrapg nnd Hood. When
he left his si nt In the Srnnle tn become
chief nf the rebellion, he expected to re
turn tn Wnshlnptnn ns the head of on ac
cnmpllshid revolution. He will po there
now in chains, tn be tried, among a horde i
of desperadoes, for murder. What a depth
of humiliation ! He has not even the con
solation of knowing that he will lie remem
bered by an; body as a martyr, for he Is
follow i d by the ixecratlon of clefiutid rib
els nnd the mingled execration and con
tempt ol all loynl men. His ullir disgrace
precidis his condemnation, und will embit
ter his lost hours. Men who might have
intercided for n traitor will not say a word
to save an sssassln. The sympathy of

Intensely excltid by a Lee, a Kwell, or n
