LO YALTT 1!? DIXIE. V- [Frem the Richmond Dispatch, Feb. *2u ] The Yankee nation, elevated bj the recent victories of its hireling armies, is entirely certain of the speedy and thorough subjugation of the South It laughs to soorn any I idea of any other possibility, and exults in deliciouaj day-dreams of the degradation tr which its enemy will be reduced. I It glorlee in the consciousness of its brute strength, and intends to exercise it in *he spirit oi a brute. All the enormous self-complacency and pelf-conceit which for a while were humbled bj the battle ri Manassai have renewed their ancient exr.ltation, and they fancy themselves the mas.era of the universe and the predestined conquerers of all mankind. But the work of subjagatien is as dis? tant now as ever?more distant, more imprac1 ticabla than it was before the shadow of disI aster had been east upon our flag. If eur early victories had been followed up, and a blow struck which would have paralised the >orth and compelled a peace, it would have been a temporary paralysis, and a peaoe which would have subjugated the South inorc completely than sha u ever likely to be by the hands of her enemies. The inevitable consequences of a speed/ peac would have been the restoration of the old commercial and manufacturing dependency of the South ^r0D th? North, with no other remits of her nominal independence than a temporary exemption from abolition legislation, and the heavy expense of a separate Government, with none of those sources of wealth to support it which commerce, manufacoures and trade supply. Such a condition, call it by what name we may. would be essentially subjugation ; and if the North had toflfei counsel of wi?dom instead of pride, malignity and reveDge, it would, in the first instance, never have permitted the | war to be waged, or, when it had begun, have 'v brought it to a termination u speedily as possible. When we say that the subjugation of the South ia now more remote than it would have been alter an early peace, we have no referf enee to that amall minority which, in the [ * South, as well as every community, is willing to purchase peace at any price. There are todies in th4 iSouth at mere were tones in the ^ Revolution, who** only sympathies are witk the enemie* oj their tountry, tcho lament its nciontj arirt rejoice over tzs aejeats. Tfie subjugation of these is not the question, for of all the tyrants who threaten to oppress us, they, in the event of an opportunity, would be the most revengeful and inexorable. The tories in the Revolution committed atrocities which far surpassed the most cruel oppressors of the British invaders, and we are prepared t? expect from Southern tories?happily not so many in number nor so capable of mischief as their illustrious predeoessors?the exhibition of a similar spirit There is iimtkAP ? ? mmmmrm ?H%B UiV/i W UUUlCiVIU who may be subjugated, because they are already subjugated by their apprehensions of the evils and calamities which are incident to a state of war. Whilst generally honest and patriotic, they look upon national honors as an abstraction, not to be weighed against personal comfort and security and material gain. * Dying for one's country," they consider a very pretty poetical sentiment, much to be admired in novels and tragedies ; but, like I many other poetical sentiments, nonsensical and Quixotic when reduced to practice. Selfindulgence is the rule of life with many men who are patriotic, honest, virtuous, and moral ] m ivug as kUO MSICISO VI lUOSfl qUlllllPS COSt them no sacrifice. Bat of *07 higher life than the life of the flesh they hare not the faintest conception, nor can they imagine anj greater evil than the loss of monej, the deprivation of fihjsical comforts, and above all, the loss of iie. No one will denj that the subjugation of this class is practicable, even with a moity of the immense forces which Lincoln has brought into the field. Bat sach is not the spirit of the great majority of the Southern people. They are devoutlv attached to their countrv tr? it* !rititntinn? ^ ? ^ , V .?v to its habits and modes of life, and they have an innate and ineradicable antagonism to the political and ?'jcial system of the invading race, to their character and their habits and their very modes of speech, which the present cruel war baa intensified into suet passionate and profound detestation that, sooner than acknowledge the Yankees as masters, they would rather see the whole Southern country sink to the bottom of the ocean. As a whole, the South is proud, sensitive to the last degree to a stain upon her honor, and holding dcatn an inferior evil to degradation Such men may be overrun, may be exterminated, bat they cannot be subjugated. They will resist as lotg as resistance is possible, and, if conquered, thev will not 8tavrtonnn?rjul Wti?? ?W - ^ j ww. ?? u?u wvo^iiive of a people are indomiUble, they can never be enaiaved ; and so long aa the South la true to hereelf, she will main lain her freedom and independence. WhAtean the enemy do with auoh a people? If driven from the citiea they will retire to the country, and their oitiea altogether could not mob a town half the size of New York. To follow them to the country, in the Taat territory of the South, would require an army more numeroua than that of Xerzea. They will retire to the country and take their arms with them, each man hia truatr rifl? ?n?l V>? * , fpared to seise the first opportunity to re-assert their rights. They will at once destroy the cotton and other staple* which the North is endeavoring to force from them by thesword,and will never cultivate them agam till they can do so for their own benefit. livery bale of cotton in the donthern State* will be burned, and the proprietors will raise wheat and corn and other articles whioh they purchased of the Nortk. They will return to the simnle and Irugal ways of their forefathers, in dress, furniture, and ail the comforts of life, manufacturing for themselves suoh plain and useful articles as their simple wants and absolute necessities require. If the Yankees choose w hold tieir cities, sod be masters of the only spots where their armies are quarted, these will be but islands in the midst of a vast oeean, and will aot affect the freedom and independence of the people ao long as they are constant to their cause and true to themselves. In the very worst aspect of the Southern cams, this is the extreme limit which Yankee subjugation can reach, even if our armies could be driven from every battle-held, and every Southern eity sad fort fall into the enemy's hands. But th? accomplishment even of that result, with all their superiorty of numbers, is an achievement beyond their power. They have taught us bv perseverance with which they contrived to fight us after their signal reverses Bethel. Rull Run , ; ??? ! field, Belmont, Carnifax Ferry, Leeoburg, Oreenbriar river, Alleghany and others, not to be dismayed and dishearted by reverses, bat to make them incentives to new energy and freeh determination. We shall rise, like Ant <*us, refreshed by every fall. The farther the enemy penetrates into the interior and extends his line of march, the more oostly and perilous will be his means of aggressions, and the more economical and practicable our means of defence. Everywhere he will be met bj desperate and prolonged resistance, until the foreign world, dependent as it is upon Southern commerce, would become inpatient of the eternal contest, and itself interpose to pat an end to the mad dreams o(Southern subjugation, now thet nui> oan. The Norfolk Dav Book states that the citizens of Savannah. Mobile. Charleston and V?? Orleaa* are *11 uudar ariaa and well drilled; and call* apoa the people of Norfolk to fly to arm* without any exception of exciuea, on pais of ? * 0#*7 oitT, bat Portsmouth ad[Qoapurt alao, laid in a^hea. It ia aaaerted 0 other hand, on seemingly food Mthority, that do apprehenaiolm whatever u to the tafety of Norfolk nod of tbaNary Yard, exist id the mind* of Qen. Huger and hi* offloers, who, of course, know best what the capabilities of the city for defence are. The moat important item of intelligence by this arrival ia that which relates to the views entertained by the members of the Confederate I Congress, now in session, on the subject of the future conduct of the war. It is feared at Richmond that there are several members of the House of Representatives, and one or two Seiators, who are in favor of putting a atop to the war, and of taking such measures as will result in the return of the States to their allegiance. Thade views were entertained by them before the loss of Fort Donelson, and that evett will, of course, strengthen their convictions, and may also bring other members over to their way of thinking. They have secured the co. r Arotir.n Ana 12 JKACAA.? * ?> ? "|/vmuvu Vi uuu vi mo ikivuiuvuu CUllUIB *AJ IB certain extent, and a couple of articles will soon appear in one of the Richmond papers intended to feel the publio pulse in regard to these startling views (u they will appear at the South.) While these facts exist, it is due to truth to say that a large majority of both housed of the rebel Congress are still inclined to carry on the war, even in the face of their recent reverse*. acd of the still more discouraging fact that they can no longer depend on foreign aid, but will hay? to fight their battles alone and unassisted. Some inklings of the forthcoming meesare of Jeff. Davie, t6 bo delivered to-morrow, Lave fot out amwng the quid nunc* of Richmond, t was understood that it would not attempt to underrate the severe losses at Fort Henry and Fort Donelson, but would use those facts as arguinenu to prove the military power of the North, and the determination of the Union government to reduce the South to subjection, ?nd would urge the Southern people to renewed efforts to defeat the Union armies. The Norfolk Day Book of the 19th has an editorial article on the gloomy aapect of affaire at the South, In which it says :?" The fulnera of the direful wrath of the North is directed against us. Have wo prepared to resist the uae 01 invasion ine campaign tjatore us will be witnessed in trembling silence by the governing powers of the world. The North has stayed the judgment of England and France by sure promises of the restoration of the old Union. Is our army sufficient? Let the call be sounded for its increase." The Health or Captain W D. Pobtkx, of thk Gp.vBoat Essex ?The following la an extract from a private letter, written at the requeit of the Captain by hla Acting Aid, dated Cairo, 111., February 17th :?'

The writer of the above also says : "All hands on board will be glad to aee Captain Porter once more in active service, as 'hey think him too good a man to be seen lying on a sick bed." This is soldier language, for the best men must sufT-r aa well as do for their country The Essex was to be towed to St Louis for repairs, but at the above date she was still at Cairo. This delay caus?d by the wrecked condition of the boat, and the sickness of their gallant Captain, is trying the restless spirits of the brave crew rather severely The Kssex carries remarkably heavy cannon, which na? :n eacb engagement told severly upon the enemy's works. fTT-The Chicago Journal had one reporter killed outright, and another had fata leg (hot off. at the capture of Port Henry.
