    MAILS TO THE SOUTH TO BE CUT OFF. It appears from the speech of Mr. Lincoln to the Virginia Commissioners on Saturday, that, in addition to whatever military or naval arrangements the President may make under present circumstances, he is determined to stop the mail service to the seceded States. This measure will undoubtedly do serious damage to the South, and to the North also. It will cut off all commercial and social connections between the two divisions of the country; it will be a second step towards establishing a condition of civil war, and will widen the breach between the North and the South. – N. Y. Herald.

    It will not be the first time the insane Black Republicans have bit of their noses to spite their faces. We can do as well without the mails as the North can, and perhaps a little better.
