We had a conversation yesterday with

was a mechanic in that accursed and in
famous city, and was imprisoned for six
month in the jail for expressing Union
sentiments. Ho says that threat desti
tution and gloom prevail in Charleston,
liusinoss of all kinds is dead, supplies of
provision are very scant, and clothing
more so. On the principal mercantile
street there are hut tno stores open.

Strength of our Regular Army.
The .liiy lleyister for September,
is out. Copies will soon be forwarded to
all the regular army rendezvous in the

of nearly 10,0(10 men. There were until

mounted rillemeu, two of dragoons, two
of cavalry, and four of artillery, mak
ing, all told, some 120,000 men. In May,

Kirby Smith's March Over the
A member of the Hid Uegiment of
Alabama volunteers, writing from Lex
ington the loth, gives an account of the
march of Kiiirv Smith. lie says the
lb llrigade " left Jaeksboroon Friday,
Ihe week before the battle al Ilichniond,
witha train of about one hundred and
lifly wagons, and slatted through l'.i
Creek Cap." He says why it should be
called a (isp it is impossible to tell. They
had very hard woik to ud Ihronuh.
" 'Flu rear of the train was several
times only able to reach the point from
which the advance started in the morn
ing. In three days the brigade only ad
vanced twenty mih'S. Kations
gave out, and Ihe men were compelled to
subsist on green corn for several days.
After crossing Fine Mountains the hard
marching began. The brigade man bed
nearly twenty miles a day. Tho feet, of
the lnen were covered with blisters. I,
myself, saw several men, w hose feel were
so severely bruised, that al night their
shoes were so full of blood that it could
In-fumed, out. cry often tho dust was
so thick that it was impossible to see from
one end of the regiment, to the oilier. Yet
hungry, thirsty, sore-footed, and chock
ing with dust, the men marched steadily
on. The ordnance stores were brought
salely through not a ;i;nn was lost.
Let it be remembered that Ihe march was
tlirotmh a hostile country: where no
friendly face ever greeteil us where no
friend of the South ever bid us (iod
speed on our way. The men knew what
to expect. If the people of Kentucky
entertained Ihe same sentiments lis (he
inhabitants of the mountains did, then
it was clear thai they were marching into
an enemy's country, with numbers ton
vruir lo bold tho State, nod too large to
make a successful and rapid retreat.
I'nder these circumstances, h required,
not only physical, but great moral cour
age lo meet and overcome the dangers
and dillieulties that surrounded us. Many
brave actions have been dono by our
(roups during this war many victories
have been won, and many hard marches
made; but no army has ever encounter
ed more hardship overcome more dilli
eulties, or Madu a more successful niurrh,

Union Sentiment at the South.
A correspondent writing from Ham
burg, Tcnn., on the I 'it It insl., says ;
There has been so many statements
as lo I be extent of Ihe I nion sentiment
in various parts of the South, thai il
seems useless to express any opinion in
reference In il here. Hut 1 desire to stale
a few facts. There is now in active ser
vice down the river a lon e of Irom one
to three hundred men, under command of
('apt. Hreckiiiiidge, gone for Ihe purpose
of engaging the guerrillas near 1 'in k river
shoals. These men have volunteered ill
I this vicinity within the last three weeks.
At I'lirdy, Captain Fielding' lliust has a
force of eight hundred volunteers. Ill
Tishomingo county, Mississippi, another
man has live hundred men for the Fed
I A Captain Jones w ho lives a lew miles
I up the river from this place has just ob

cruited two lull companies from this

mere outline, il is indicative of a policy
and purpose which must meet the appro-
! val of all conservatives. In response lo
j a hearty call, Oen. Sherman addressed
1 the meeting :
II" expressed his belief (hat no pari
, of (he country was more interested in
the present slruagle. He supposed the
: South did not think it could subjusle
: the North, and he solemnly declared Ihe
I Norlh did not want to subjugate the :
i houlli. Ibey supposed that eunslily
i should exist as always, and the ballot-
box be Ihe ultimate court of appeal. He
thought Legislatures bad been loo apt lo I
: listen to the desires of mere political '
sections, and thus, to some extent, lost ;
i siLdit of the wise measures of our fathers, i
1 If Iho slave inlerrsf, the railway inteivst,
j or any other special interest governed the
, country, it would be tyranny. The North,
, were determined that tho slave interest
should not govern them, and he doubted
not the South was determined that, nei-
ibiT that, nor any other special interest
-hould govern them. He regretted that
the slave questions should not be ap
proached calmly, that the people lost iheir
i discretion and good sense when this sub
I jecl eaine into discussion; lor his part
be only protested against a special inter
est being made the basis of Legislative
j pi.Uc, wtuther it was the bank interest
i nr the slave interest had made this coun
try one, .incI in.Vtidi'd her people lo be
; one, and the people should set their foot
j on all sectional legislation. They should
' put a stop to any attempt to prevent the
I people of one Stale or cily trading or
I travelling in another. The Mississippi
belongs not to Louisiana nor to Illinois,
' but to the North American continent, and
I it must bo opened to all. So the Atlantic
i belongs to no special people. God's wind
blows .North and South, without lavor ;
and has no favor for the people, of any
particular nation. So. the harbor of
Charleston is not the property of the
people of that city; they did not make
a drop of water in it, nor shape ils con
figuration ; it belongs to the wide com
merce of the whole country.
Fach State and city had its prejudices
ami peculiar notions; the North did not
want to interfere with them; but when
any Slate, county or city wants lo force
its prejudices and notions on others, then
the North, and all who have a man's
spirit in their bosom, will oppose the ef
fort ; they w ill refuse to g'ubuiit to ty
ranny. In attempting lo destroy the (iovern
nieiit of the United States, the people of
the South are destroying their own rights.
Their right to property, to local govern
ment, lo the wide liberties they enjoy,
depend upon the supremacy of that Hag,
call it gridiron or what you will. While
it waves on every sea, and protects com
merce in every port, the rights you enjoy
are safe; destroy thai supremacy, ami
where do you stand among the nations
of the carlh V
Many seem to think because the i cools
have met with some success in Kentucky
that the Norlh will be subdued. Yaiu
thought '. It will only wake up the
Northern spirit and prolong the contest.
The North will not he conquered. She
has been slow to see tho vaslncss of the
struggle in which the nation is engaged ;
it hates lo leave the pursuits of commerce
and quit the plow and tho harvest lield,
but let it only know that such an ahan
dotiment is necessary, ami its millions
will come swarming from the plow, the
shop, and the counting-room, until vic
tory is theirs, and the old Hag once more
waves over the broad lands that rightly
belong to its empire.
What docs this war mean'.' mere inde
pendence to the South'.' That is not a
ihe leaders mean power for them, pre
dominance to the slave power, and injury
to the liberty of the masses. It. is an
attempt to give one interest slavery
the predominance over all others. If the
'intention is to simply govern the new re
public on the principles of the old one,
w hy not use their power at the ballot-box
to improve or change what they desire'.'
lint they want a power for a ( lass the old
system would not permit tlieni to possess
I Iii' y want a strong government, therefore
they fight against it. It is an oligarchy
they want, and the North cannot permit
sin h a kind of Oovcriiinciit to exist side
by side with her free republic. If an
agreement for separation was made and
such a Government, well established be
side ti.eir free one, the very signers of
that agreement would seize arms lo put
an end to such a Government before the
ink was dry with which the agreement
was signed. It is useless to dream of
peace which would cut this country in
two such a thing cannot be done.
No dictation is wanted, no subj ligation.
The Soiilh must not dietale to the Norlh,
nor the'N'orlh tyrannize over (he South
the Last must not domineer over the
West, nor (he West lord it over the Fast;
we must have one harmonious Congress,
I legislating with unprejudiced fairness for
the whole people.

are required to guard. Thjs evil requires

the F.nglish red ensign and pctiant, and

two pivots, and having every appearance

I had sent the Winona to windward
to speak a schooner standing in under
sail. The smoke of a steamer was dis
covered bearing southeast, and standing
directly for us. Observing she was
burning black smoke. 1 immediately got
under way, and stood, low ai d her, sig
naling to the Winona to chase at discre
tion. We soon neared the stranger in
company with the Winona, who, as she
approached, gradually hauled to the
windward. When abeam of him, about
100 yards distant, I hailed liiin, but re
ceived no answer. 1 then fired a shot
.across his bows he still ranged ahead,
without slopping, bid still thinking him
an F.nglish man-of-war, I lired Ivvo
more shots across his bow, and then di
rected a shot at him, which went over
between his lore and main masl.
He soon hauled down his Mag and
trained bis guns to bear on us, but hav

sisted by the Winona and one of the
mortar schooners, but he made sail, and
by his superior spcrtl and unparalleled
audacity, managed to escape us. We

and are certain that several of our shells
and the Winona's struck him.

of Generals Cox, Sturgis, Wilcox and

the I'.luo Lidge, and was engaged in dis
posing his lines, and arranging the order
for a linal attack t drive the la bels from
their position, which they held with such
pertinacity during the day. His bold
and striking appearance as lie waved his
hand in the usual way, while directing
Ihe disposition of the troops, attracted
the notice of the rebels who lay in am

for retaliation for the hiss of their own
General. Gen. lleno had scarcely com
