You say wo seized upon your forte and ar. euals and nts 'e pr.socers of the garrisons sen', to protect is against negroes and Indians.

Yuu say that we tried to force Missouri ana Kent cky into rebellion In spile of tbemrelve*. Tbe truth is. my government, fr< m the beglni.tngof this struggle to tins boar, has again and a. ain oilbred, before the wiioie worid, to leave it to the unbiased w di <d thee States, and all others to determine for themselves whe ther tbey will cast their destiny with your government or nuts, and your government baa res.tied ih.s funda mental principle curse lr>s-tiiutioim wi'.li the bayonet, and lnb us daily, by ft rco and fraud", to fasten Is hateful tyranny upon the nnf rtuunto freemen of these Viates.

You say my government, by tots of Congress, has - on t.seated "ail debts due Northern men for goods sold and delivered " The truth is, Ceng re s gave due and ample time to your merchants and traders to depart item our shores with their ships, goods and effects, and only se questered the property of our enemies in retaliation for their acts declnriog us traitors and confiscating our pro perty wbenver their power extended, either in their country or. our own. Such are your accusations, and such are. tbe lacls, koowu of all man to be true. You order Into exile the whole population of a city, drive men, women and children from their bouses at the point or the bayonet, tinder tbe plea that it is to tbe interest of your government, and on ih# claim ttoet this is an act Of "klniiuet# to these families of Atlaota." Butler only banished from New Orleans the registered enemies of his government, and acknowledged that ha did it as a punishment. You i**ne a sweoi mg edict, covering all the inhabitants of a city, and add Insult to the Injury heaped upon tbodefence!e?e by tbat yon have -done tbcm a kindness.

And became I characterize what juii call k.udnot: as being reel cruelly. yon presume to sit in judgment be tween me and my God, and you decide that my earnest prayer to the Almighty father to save our women and children from what yon call kindness I* a "sacrilegious, hyp--critic* appeal." Yon come into our conntry with your army avowedly for tho purpose of euitlcgeiing Ire# white men. women and children ; and not only intend to rule over them, but you make negroes your allies, and des're to place over us an interior race, which we have raised from barbarism to its present pc-.tion, which is the highest ever at tained by that race In any country in all time. 1 must, therefore, decline to sccept your stetemei.ts in reference to your kindness towards tbe people of Atlanta, and your willingnesfe to sacrifice everything lor tbe peace and honor of the trou'li. and refuse to be governed by your decision in regard to matters between myself, my coun try aud my God. Ycu say " lei us fight it cat like men." To this roy reply is fur myself, and i believe for all true moo, aye, and women and children, ,n my country, we will light you to death. Better die a thousand deaths than to sub mit to live under you or your government and your ne gro allies. Having answered the points forced upon me by your letter of tbe 9lh September.

The subject is not only in teresting, as bearing upon tbe relative p 'ivers '.! resist ance <T the two countries, hut as a point of comparison wi'b vrr ous statements made upon the subject. It is but bio* days jwoc fbat a New Yojk najper, tim hw ro murfable for [is a.xuvSe/of assertion ibfiu in ita cogency of leglc, compiled ihe armies of the con.ederacy ut one hundred thousand men. being the remuniii of a million who had been armed ?ga nst ihe cause of the Union Muc hundred thousand,Ibeu. according to tIlia statement, have burn killed or disabled iu fighting lor the rebellion, and, of course, the few aud (echlo survivor* cao offer but trilling resistance to the victorious armies of the Union who have already sccnmphshed so tearful a slaughter. Appalling as is this bloody record of the veracious Yan kee chrouicler, there is yet a cotwolntlou mr the confede racy to be drawn Ciom It. We mutt mourn such terrible sacrifices ol )ne. but It becomes a subject of congratula tion that anybody is left alive. Alter sucb wholesale destruction It w. uid scarcely be expected ihat there would be men in tho confederacy to perform the most ordinary and nece-sary occupations of tile much less to put iu the field even so large a forco as that which the journalist credits us with, snd which, small or large, certainly seoroe to be large enough to keep tho great Meutonsnt General and the generals under hlm in lull employment. It te console lory to think that there is vitality enougb In tbe con federacy to bear aucb leases and still maintain n grsat mr, Perhaps, too, some comfort msy be drawn from the recollection of tbe fact that lbs sams Yankee journal stated, at tbe time of General Johnston's rstreat from Manassas, that tbe rebel army was reduced to less tbsn one thousand men, and yet but a short lime after Mc Ctellan was overwhelmed and compelled to ''change bis base" by dint of the superior numbers of this same army, whether tbe one thousand wers aupernaturally Increassd, or whether tbeir prowess augmented In tbe ratio of two hundred to oue, is n<-t very clear. It Is certain, howevsr, that this decayed and do moiallr.ed army of less tbsn one tboustnd was rated by high Yankee authority at two hundred thou sand in tbe battles before Richmond. It is not altogether unreasonable, then, to hope that tbe one hundred tbsu sand, now talked of In so depreciatory n style, may, a short time hence, be represented to be as numerous as tbe devouring swarms of locust*, when ft becomes ueces ca< y to excuse Ireeh defeats under tbe old p ea of over wbelmmg numbers. Just at tbo commencemeet of the war, when the whole titort ol the prest of the North was used to inlute courage into ihe massec by repreaeutisg to tbem their own irre ststible strength aud tbe weakness of tbelr adversaries, the argument was urcgd ihat the disparity was even greater than It appeared from tbe census returns. The wily Southern oligarchs, [wbo had managed so long to wield tlie \>ower of the government, had (atoified the returns and fraudulently magnified lbs population of the Southern States. Tbe vociferous hulllea of Yankendom were a'4 satisfied with tbe stereotyped odds of eighteen millions to eight,but sought to conviurv themselves that ibeiv advantages iu point of numberr were even greater thau was generally supposed. On Ihe other baud it has beon asserted In the Soutt that our numbers bad been understated. The gttlicuiiiei of communication in sparsely settled districts rcrdcrec it difficult: to arrive at accurate results, iheu, loo In certain portions of the country, tbe same prejudlct existed against "numbering the | eople" wfliob prevailed in I'ibllcal times. Headers fnmlllar with the wurka ol Pinion Suggs will recollect tbe difficulties he encoun tered in taking tho census in Alabama, bow tbe dogs were let loose against tho stronger wbo came "to spy cut the nakedness of the land," how eoe old lady resented particularly the Impertinent curiosity of Mr. Van Bureu, and gave vent to ferocious threats iu esse be n.ineelt should cuaae upon tlie same mission as his sub ordinates 1m; edioistils of this aud like character ware supposed t< bavo caused our strength to be underrated. Assuming however, that the population had beeu accu rately stated, it has been calculated that the confederacy can maintain six to eight hundred thousand men In the Hold l-nougb. in all conscience, to thrash soundly nil the Yankees wbo ever dined on oodflsh or put treacle in their rottee. But, then, we are confronted with tho assertion or the New YonK Bream that we have lost nine hundred tbouisnd men la lb* intest, ami it reelly seems ihst.soisr Irom tnsklng any sucli extravagant confutations of our number*, we should be exceedingly gratified for so liberal an allowance as a hundred tbuu T.e'nsrsl Grant, too, baa said that we baTe robbed tbe crsdls and the grave, luese, indeed, are about tbo only thiugb bis couulrymeu Uavo left nslo rob wberever their armies have gone but although be confesses that r.ur in f.iuts and sexagenarians ste able to bo:d tut veteran ar my at bay, we trml yst to make hun oblivious of his last statement, when in some future document be seoks to expisin bis deients by the overwhelming numbers of the rebels. ??Nothing," ssid Sydney Smiib. ?
