FAYETTEyitaLR s ' MyPAY KTEXDC, DECEMBER 8, 1862. r.i ' Lncots' Missagi The Richmond papers publish in full the message of Lioooln to the yankee Congress Tbich met on thelst.; The propriety of such a publication, considering the oharacter of ton oh of its matter, mtj well be questioned. It ia proper to state, however, briefly, l" De proposes an amendment of tha Constitn lion of the United States, to authorise the purchase of the sieves of every State that may assent thereto before the year 1900. l dollars eaoh, payable in bonds of the V. S. Said slaves 10 be colonized in Liberia,' Hay-tL or some other foreign country, or in some part of the P. S., or to be left where they are. , This is the substanoe of V scheme whioh' he urges at great length, and as if he really believed that it would D TBiisuo - ir -w u eua ana resiore iue . Southern States to the old defunct and despised Union. We can ecarcciy euppose mat be is sincere In tbe ex-preesion of such a belief. But whether he is or not, no-thisg oould be further from the mind of any true sensible Southern man than to entertain such a proposition for moment. In the first place, norelianoe whatever oould be placed on any constitution, or amendment to a joDstitution, of a people who have openly and palpably violated the most important provision of a constitution 1 tlresdv existing and as binding as any one could be. Secondly, the Southern people will never oonsent to buy i tai pay for fheir own slaves, as they would have to do i. Mat nAt4 if tha hftrMfn oK mil ti m A - 1 .1 ; - tions perforaaed. Thirdly, they will not consent that their yankee enemies shall legislate them out of their property, Fourthly, the two raoes, both free, cannot eUt together. And finally, the South pan never content to live in union with a people who have treated them so vilely and barbarously as these fiendish yankees hats done wherever they have had the power While at peaoe, they swindled the South in a quiet way. At war, they rob, and burn, and .wantonly destroy, and murder detenoeless men and insult unprotected women. May leaven preserve as from association or bargain with the swindling, savage race. Ihs proposition is madeoubtless, hot with any ex pktaUon that the South will assent to it, but for effect moot the Democrats at the North nt v. - " a y uivu AJUlUpQ. Lincoln admits that "the occasion is piled high with difficulty. He does not once allhde to any idea, of eesquering a peace, nor to any of the events of the war. Htto any prospects for the future, exoept by the above uompromise," as be calls it which may be called buying a peace, and taking care to pay for it out of his en-uny's money more than his own. As to foreign nations, ttft following passage shows .(Lit he has been negotiating with some of them, and ailed in his object because of "temporary reverses" which befell hi armies: : t In the month of June last there were some grounds lo expect that the maritime powers which, at the Deponing of our domestic difficulties, so unwisely and unnecessarily, as we think, recognised the insurgents u a belligerent, would soon recede-from that position, I hich has proved only less injurious to themselves than to ur own country. But the temporary reverses which afterwards befell tbe national arms, and whioh were wggerated by our owa disloyal citizens abroad, have ' kuheuo delayed that act of simple justice." Tie report of the Adjutant General, which accompa-jiee lit message, shows that there are about 600,000 Kldicrt in the field, and over 100,000 in the hospitals. Ai to finance, Lincoln states the expenditures of the year ending the 30th of June last as $474,744,778 16. They have since been, with a larger and more expen-tne army, and a depreciated currency, at least $300,-, 000,000 more, to say nothing of the vast amount of unpaid claims. It is beyond' question, therefore, that the yankee debt is now at least. $1,000,000,000. The receipts in the Treasury, apart from loans, amounted to $51,841,710 76. So that the whole year's receipts are 1 sot enough to pay the interest on the public debt. PioscMPTioa. Some of the State papers are very inch troubled about tha "proscription" of the -State Treasurer, Mr. Courts, whe was'a candidate for re-election sod was defeated. If any one of these papers will turn back to itsfiles seme years ago and copy any complaint it then made against the "proscription" of Chas. LHinton, and the election of Mr. Courts in his place-why thta we will have some slight reason we have tone now to believe that it is the public good, and not party spirit, that dictates its present complaint!. If it right then to "turn out a faithful and experienced ffioer, to pat in an inexperienced one, how is it wrong sow to turn out a faithful and experienced one to put in i gentleman of as much financial ability and industry Md integrity as are possessed we do not hesitate to J it of Jonathan Worth by any man in the State for ourselves, we do not like proscription, .but we do' tsink that none of the State-House officers, with whom (is these times whioh have maue the State government f taat importance) the' Governor has necessarily so uch to do, should te bitter opponents of the Governor, Mr Courts is said to be. With the elections made by ; the Legislature we have had nothing to do though we ' j think the selections admirable but we do not see the omm(v for the howl that is raised because the Legislature hag thought that seme few offices might be filled from that large elass which has been so ruthlessly pro? cribed. We think that this opinion is unbiassed by Pr?J Spirit. As evidence thereof, it may not be imprd-P' to state, that of the three persons whom we have had occasion to recommend to Gov. Vance for high positions, two have been life-long political opponents. Mail IxxtoraAB.xTiM, We regret to learn that our Thursday's issues do not reaoh Hay wood and Big Swamp m y reasonable tim.

Borne months ago when Corn rose to a dollar a bushel,"and cotton cloth to 25 cents a yard, theJWihnSngton Journal was exceeding ly exercisea aoout high prices, extortion, &c. and would iisien to no reason why they were high.f We endeavored to explain to it, that cottoii goods we,re high because SootbenTpeople' never would buy them from Southern factories whilst any others could be had, and that consequently there had been no inducement to . establish a sufficient number of factories to fill the home demand when the Northern supply was cut off; that they were high beoanse, there beiBg not enough. to supply the demand, people who wanted them Atne and offered more than the makers asked. - We urged, that the proprietors bad never before -made any money, and were liable at any day to have their factories burnt over their heads by the enemy, or to lose all by a break-down of mschmery; or if they survived the war, that tbe avowed policy of the South was to discountenance a id destroy them i , '.;.-', ' ; - . But the Journal would listen to none of these Ty sons. We then expressed a wish that Wilmington had some manufactories of its own, for if it bad, we should' have a different story from the Journal. And sure enough we do. Wilmington has now engaged in manufacturing to an extent heretofore unheard of in North Carolina or in the South. Almost, every man, woman and child is either a proprietor or an operative in its Salt factories; And the-, profits are ten-fold greater than any cotton or woolen factory ever made upon an equal investment 'of capital or labor. ' Well, exactly the effect we anticipated has been produced on" the Journal. It has come to ou way of thinking and rea soning, as we will show by copying its artiole on Salt, as follpws: - ; ; "Extortion. Salt. Protection.-.Thniiu agreatWal said, and most of it said honestly no doubt, about're straining extortion and speculation in the necessaries of life, and especially in salt. Salt seems to be the stalking-horse, the favorite hobby of all those who co for regulating prices by law. "In ordinary times a bushel of sack salt is estimated to enough to cure a thousand pounds of meat. Making an reasonable allowance for the difference in weight and other respects between sack salt and Sound salt, a bush el of the latter will cure between six and seven hundred pounds, at a cost of three cents a pound with salt at $20 a bushel, and between four and five cents a pound with salt at $30 a bushel. That salt could be largely economised we have no doubt we know it. We have seen it tried. It will thus appear that although salt is high-very high too high, its high price cannt aooount for ail, or even for any considerable proportion of the rise m the price of bacon. "But the attempt to reduce the price of salt must result in failure, while the supply xif that article ia inadequate to meet the demand while the volume of currency far exceeds a healthy standard, and is constantly increasing, and above all, while the works erected for salt production are exposed to the attacks of the enemy. As the thing stands now, salt-making is a lottery. Money may be made, and made rapidly; but on the other hand, the whole investment may be swept off before any return is realized by the parties engaged, who have the chances of war and of peace both against them. Tbe enemy may shelltheir works. The enemy may attack Wilmington and capture it. Where then would be the salt-woris! Or on the other band peaoe may be somehow brought about, and salt be poured in at prices which would render competition ridiculous. . -"We are offering no plea for the extravagant prices asked for salt, but we are giving reasons why we think any attempt at artificial restriction of "prices must prove a failure, and we are pointing to some of the elements at work to bring about Buch failure to wit: Inadequate supply; Inflated currency, and finally the insecure and constantly exposed position of the works on the sea-coast. If the feeling of insecurity was removed, it would ZO far towards remnvinir annthsv nf tk. ... fT tne high price of salt we mean the inadequate sun- nli, llkL. 1 a ... . ? a f.jr. n-uougn many nave taxen all tbe riBks of the Salt business, and hav trnnn inln it an.1 h... r,.J- money, yet very many have been kept out of it by a cuuBiuemioD or me nsKs involved. "But high price or low price, salt is a necessity, and whether the people of North Carolina. at any price, depends now upon whether the Cape Fear' and the adjacent sounds and seacoast can be successfully' defended. With a certainty of protection, the region thus referred to can make salt enough not only for the State, but as much more to spare. Let it be seized, and thnoa whn ku fnnnii fa.. i :n indeed, have double reason for being afflicted. -ine great interests involved we donotmean merely or even principally the interest of the salt-makers, but the great interests of the Bait-consumers, the interests of tbe State and the1 Confederate 8tates all call ror protection to the Cape Fear River, the town of W:lmington and the adiaoent Sounds, nnw h fa, greatest salt-producing region along our Atlantic coast. ' U7 ! . I. . . .. . . ic give me enemy no lniormation when we say this, for we are assured that thv knnw all .km We do not invite attack, for that we believe to be de termine? on. ne ask for a fair chance of defending the place when attacked." Now there is a change of tone, indeed! Some-months ago the cotton and woolen factories were "the stalking-horse," even of the Journal itself. "The attempt to re duce the price of salt must result in failure," unless the salt-makers will follow the example of the factory ownei-s, be content with 76 per cent, profit instead of 2000 per cent., and reduce their price to $2 a bnhel. The factories have voluntarily resolved to sell tlieir sheetings at 30 cents a yard instead of 60. Voluntarily we say, for there is not one of them that could not let their conscript workmen eo into the arm v, or hire sub stitutes for them, and make more money by tbe partial orkmg of their mills than they did before the reduc tion. , Diaths or Soldises.

Express. ,The Skirmish near Franklin. PxTEnsBtrao, Deo. 6 Our forces were out on a foraging expedition, and consisted of Major Griffin's Battalion of Mounted Rangers, from Georgia, and, one gun of Capt. Wright's Rockett Battery. The Yankees received information of the movements of the Confederates, and succeeded in ambushing them. After a severe fight of one -hour our forces retired, with the loss of between 30 and 35 wounded and prisoners, and the gun. We lost five horses, ! and captured six. The loss of the Yankees could not be ascertained, as they held the field after the engagement. The section of Wright's Rockett Battery captured was one of the pieces taken from the Yankees in the fight below Richmond, and this Battery is said to be the only one of its kind on the Continent. lb.

From the latest Northern papers we learn that the President's message does not give much satisfaction. According to the New York Herald the radicSf abolition journals arc srctly discontented with its position on the slavery question. -" The proceedings of Congress had already been marked with much interest. In the Senate, Mr. Powell, of Kentucky, had moved a resolution of inquiry into the arbitrary urrest of citizens of that State by the military authorities of the Government, and declaring all such arrests usurpations of the power delegated by the people to the President, and palpable violations ef the Constitution of the United States. Mr. Richardson affered a similar resolution in relation to the arrest and confinement of citizens of Illinois, which was tabled. . A portion of Geo. Banks's command left New York on the 2d; on a large fleet of transports for the South. Its precise destination was kept secret. Hon. Ely Thayer, the great abolitionist, has been appointed Military Governor of Florida. There bad been another arrival from Europe. The cotton market was dull ancf;had deolined Id. a 2d. on the weelf.
