VLEIGIi: TUESDAY, OCT. 28, 1862.
There is nothing of interest from the Potomac,

"r from any portion of our army, except from
KhCarolina, of which our telegraphic dispatches
all that is interesting to our readers. Gen.
n'Te at last accounts, was on his way to Knox
n6 Tenn., but the whereabouts of the army were
" i exactly known. The presumption is, it is about
Jlberland Gap. Gen. Lee is still .round Win
tn(j thus ends the boasted invasion of the
North, an idea which we never entertained as either
ibie wjth our means, desirable or wise.

We learn that Mr. Cunningham, of Person, one
of the Councilors of State, did not receive the noti
fication from the Governor to attend until the day
fixed for the meeting. This was owing to some un
accountable delay in the raaiL We feel sure that
Mr.C. would have attended, if he had received the
notice in time.
We learn also that Mr. Graves resigned his place
as Councilor on the 22d of August last, and the va
cancy had not been filled.
It is due to truth that we should also state that
the Council failed to meet on one occasion, when
notified by Gov. Clark.
If Mr. Long had attended, as he could and should
have done, a quorum would have been present, and
the necessary steps could have been taken to re
press speculation in articles of prime necessity, to
clothe our troops, and to defend the coast As it
is, the bands of the Governor are tied in this re
spect until the meeting of the Legislature.
We are surprised to learn from the Columbia
Guardian, that .South-Carolina' has only 10,000
troops in Virginia. These are said to be in a bad
condition for clothing. The State authorities have
turned over the clothing, &c., in their hands to the
Confederate authorities, but the clothing on band is
poorly suited to the troops in Virginia. The State
had no shoes, shirts or drawers to turn over, and
the suits on hand will only supply one-third. The
greater portion of the troops raised by South-Carolina
are in the State to defend their own soil, with
one of the best generals in the Confederacy to com
mand them. North-Carolina, who has sent 50,000
men to Virginia and clothed them, cannot get the
pledge of having a sufficient force to defend her,
nor the promise of a Major General to command
our troops whom our people can confide in. Yet
North-Carolina makes no attacks upon the Presi
dent while the South-Carolina papers have for
months expressed the opinion that President Davis
is unequal to the crisis. The Guardian hints nd
very truly too, as the whole country is now ready
to believe, that the President believing himself fully
equal to the task, has never called to his aid the
first minds of the Confederacy, and therefore, may
be said to shoulder the whole responsibility.
The South Carolina papers begin to think that
that State will be made to feel severely this winter
the iron heel of Lincoln, and are calling loudlv for
help. A Mate that defied the whole power of the
United States and went out alone, ought to be able
to help herself and have something for surplusage.

We yield to no one in our anxiety that North Car
olina shall do her whole duty in meeting the exi
gencies of the war. ncr blood and treasure have
tan freely poured out for the defence of the South,
although her own territory has been shamefully neg
lected. In high places at Richmond, it is admitted
that she has done more than herduty. Wedonotclaim
ttiat she has done more than she ought to have done,
but with her own territory menaced and threatened
t points of vital interest to the Confederacy, is it
fight or just that more of her population shall be
drawn off to Virginia vnlil other State furnith
Wir quota under the first contcriptionf We think
Si01, r0ur pep,e nrc ready to do their dutT but

use they owe something to North Carolina.

T; -Tbe Office of Snrgeoa General. ; ' . ':
, Since our announcement of the appointment of
Dr. Edward Warren as Surgeon General of the State,
an attempt has been made by the Register and oth
er enemies of Gov. Vance, to produce the impres
sion that such an officer is not needed at this par
ticular lime. The act authorizing the appointment
of Surgeon General makes the Executive alone the
judge of the necessity for such an officer ; and, upon
the installation of Gov. Vance, it became hit duty
to examine for himself into the propriety of. contin
uing the office, without being biased by the. opin
ions and conduct of any one. '. After a thorough in
vestigation of the subject the Governor has thought
preper to continue the office, and has appointed a
gentleman every way eminently qualified to fill it
It will be admitted, even by the most inveterate
partizans, that the gallant men who' have volun
teered to fight our battles deserve, at the hands' of
the State, all possible consideration and kindness,
especially when prostrated by disease or wounds.
It is also notorious that though the Confederacy may
be disposed to do all in its power for the comfort of
the sick and wounded, yet there is much left to be
done, and which the States can and thould do, for
the relief ot their afflicted sons. For these reasons
nearly every State has preserved some special medi
cal organization, having for its object the care of
their sick and wounded. Thus South-Carolina,
Georgia, Alabama, and Louisiana have established
large and well-regulated hospitals, in which their
own soldiers are principally received, and supplied
with a multitude ot comforts by friends and rela
tives which otherwise would be denied them. Thus
depots have been established to which the volunta
ry contributions of the philanthropic can be for
warded for distribution according to the wishes of
the charitable donors. Thus the battle-field has
been visited by the skilful and the humane, acting
under the authority of their respective States, and
the wounded cared for amid the bursting of shells
and the whistling of bullets. In this way the bed
of the sick and mutilated soldier his been visited
alike in the humble cottage, and stately mansion,
and crowded hospital, and soothed by the kindly
ministrations of those who feel a personal interest
in his welfare.
North-Carolina, we are proud to say, has not
been backward in this ncble work. She, too, has
her hospitals and her depots, and has sent her best
talent to the field, to aid in the preservation of her
bleeding and gallant sons. In a word, she has re
membered that her soldiers are her children, bound
to her by the most tender and sacred ties, and de
serving of all the liberality and kindness she can
bestow upon them. Gov. Vance was called upon
to decide whether North-Carolina, with her large
number of soldiers in the field, should abandon her
medical organization, surrender her hospitals, and
desert her sick and mutilated children, when their
necessities were greatest and their appeal for aid
most urgent lie had to determine whether be
would truckle to certain politicians in the State, by
abandoning our hospitals and medical organization,
or boldly standby and serve, in their great necessities
of wounds and sickness, the true and brave men who
are staking their lives in our defence. The
Governor has wisely and humanely determined that
North-Carolina shall not prove faithless to those
whose blood has been shed in her behalf, but that
the best medical skill, the warmest sympathy, and
the most abundant means at his command shall be
devoted to the relief of her sick and wounded sol
diers. He has, therefore, commissioned Dr. War
ren as Surgeon General has again secured for the
State the hospitals which his predecessor had turned
over to the Confederate Government, and made ar
rangements for another in the city of Richmond
has constituted one of our first citizens his general
agent to look after the interests of our sufficing
soldiers in Virginia has set himself diligently to
work to collect hospital supplies throughout the
State, and to have them promptly forwarded to the
army has made a personal inspection of some of the
hospitals, and labored to ascertain the condition
and wants of their inmates has opened a depot of
supplies in Raleigh, to which all contributions can
be sent without risk or expense and has sent the
Surgeon General to the array in Virginia, liberally
supplied with means and clothing, and with in
structions to give his personal attention, as far as
practicable, to every sick and wounded man from
In view of tlie?e facts, and in the name of the
brave but unfortunate men who have illustrated
their patriotism by the exposure of their lives and
expenditure of their blood, wo appeal to every loyal
citizen of the State to know if ov. Vance has not
acted wisely and well in all he has done for our
Coudition or oar Army.
The condition of our army is such as to excite the
deepest feeling, and to call forth the most active ef
forts for their relief. A writer in the Charlotte
" I had a conversation a few days ago with a Col
onel, on furlough, direct from the army, and he cor
roborates the report of the Savannah correspondent,
and remarked that many of the soldiers needed eve
ry kind of clothing many had not a change since
August, and the consequence was that they were
covered with vermin which they coutd not divest
themselves of, that a great many were barefooted,
that blankets were very scarce and totally insuffi
cient to keep the troops in tolerable comfort, and
unless aid was extended soon, he could not predict
the consequences ; that our boys needed everything
but indomitable bravery and ardent love of country ;
and concluded by saying, " give us food, clothes,
shoes and blankets, and we will take care of the
The Richmond Whig thus notices tho efforts
made by tbe government to clothe and shoe the ar
my. It is obvious, from the following statement,
that the government will not be able to provide in
this respect for more than half of our troops. Tbe
" We understand that the government has already
forwarded to Gen. Lee's army over 30,000 garments,
and a large shipment of shoes. This number of
garments, allowing a coat, pair of pant", and shirt
to a man, will furnish suits, say, for 10,000 .needy
men. This will go far towards relieving the more
destitute. The government has in its employ, in
this city, 58 tailors who cutout the cloth, and 2,700
women who make it up into garments the whole
turning out, on an average,. 9,000 garments per
week, or coats, pants, and shirts for 3,000 men.
There are other establishments, in other parts of
the Confederacy, where clothing is being manufac
tured for the army, and the force engaged is suffi
cient, perhaps, to turn out 20,000 garments a week.
At this rate, estimating our army in the field at
400,000 men, it would require more than a year to
furnish each man with a single suit of clothes ! If
we suppose the various government establishments
will be able to supply 200,000 men bv Christmas,
there will still be 200,000 left, who will have to
look to the people at home for their outfit, or go
without clothing. If the government chould pro
vide for 800,000, the number left for tbe country to
clothe would still be frightfully large 100,000 1"

The Campaign ia the West.'- '
' We have placed in another column the comments
of the Richmond press upon the character and re
sulta of the campaign in the West During its
-progress we have forborne the expression of an
opinion, hoping that the confidence reposed by the
press and the country generally, in theBuccess of
Gen Bragg, might be more than realized.
We confess that the- results, so far aa his move
ments are ' concerned, have not disappointed us.
From the day that it was announced that Gen.
Beauregard had been relieved of the command in
the West on account of ill health, we have bad oar
misgivings ; and those misgivings gave way to fear
ful anticipations, when we saw that Beauregard was
not re-instated upon his recovery.
Everyman worth any thing has his peculiar fit
ness for certain positions. Few men, and especially
few Generals, are well fitted for any and all posi
tions. And what is a little remarkable in this
country, the universal mind of the masses discovers
this especial fitness of a General for particular de
partments of the public service much sooner than
our rulers. The history of the nation proves this.
Gen. Beauregard, at a very early period, impress
ed tbe public mind as by intuition, that be pos
sessed greater versatility of talent, as a military
man, than any of our Generals. Whether employ
ed in projecting defences for our seaports, planning
a battle or a campaign, in camp or in the field, he
is the right man in the right place. Gen. Lee, with
larger experience and unquestioned eminent ability
as a military man, possesses this rare quality, yet
there is room to doubt whether, in all respects, he
is Beauregard's equal.
The same public judgment has designated "Stone
wall" Jackson as the dashing, impetuous and suc
cessful leader of his own corps, to intercept, way
lay and destroy the enemy, and defeat his combina
tions. And with the same correct precision, this
judgment has long settled down upon Sterling Price
as tht man to rally our hardy western boys beyond
the Mississippi, and to free Missouri, Arkansas and
Gen. Bragg, though perhaps too rigid, is a splen
did disciplinarian, a capital engineer and defender
of fortifications. His defence of Pensacola was emi
nently satisfactory to the country. lie was the
man to have been placed in command at New Or
leans as soon as the war broke out That great,
vital interest of the South would have been safe in
his hands. He does not grasp quickly the exigen
cies of a heavy campaign, or the rapid strategic
movements of an enemy, but whatever comes with
in the scope of his eye he does well and ably. This
is the public judgment of Gen. Bragg, and it is
His plans for his recent campaign were marred
by tho tardiness of his movements. lie might have
crushed Bucll between Chattanooga and Nashville,
but that was not in his plan. Had he ordered Kirby
Smith to fall back upon Cumberland Gap, after be
disposed of Nelson, then to have used up Morgan
at the Gap, and hastened to his assistance, he might
have destroyed Buell, re captured Nashville, and
found Kentucky opened to him. Yet the advan
tage of Kirby Smith's successes was neutralized as
much or more by the unfortunate and foolish idea
of invading Ohio, gotten up by the panic presses,
as by the tardiness of Bragg. As matters now
stand, his only safety is in retreat, which he is do
ing, having a large train of stores accumulated in
Kentucky to guard and provide for.
The Prospect or Peace.
We do not attach much importance to the recent
so-called Democratic triumphs in the North and
Northwest The Democrats of the North are equal
ly pledged with the Republicans to a vigorous pros
ecution of the war. The former appear to be op
posed to confiscation and emancipation, and in favor
of conducting the war in such a way as to maintain i
liberty among themselves; and they have, from
the first, vehemently opposed and denounced the
favoritism, party ism, and corruption by which the
Lincoln administration has been niarkeJ. But still,
with Mr. Lincoln, and his party, they are or the
war. If they had control of both branches of Con
gress, they would bo compelled by public opinion
to vote supplies of men and money to the Presi
dent But they are not likely to obtain this controL
The war will most probably continue during Mr.
Lincoln's term, unless some convulsion or revolu
tion should occur among the Northern peoplo to
an est it
Nor do we perceive any grounds for hoping that
Great Britain or France will interfere. The privi
leged orders in those countries, and the enemies of
free representative government generally, are too
much pleased at the condition of things in North
America to interfere in our behalf. In addition to
this, the destruction of African slavery on this con
tinent has been a cherished object with British
statesmen for the last thirty years; and the eman
cipation proclamation of Lincoln is a constant and
powerful appeal to the abolition millions of Europe
to agitate to prevent their governments from inter
fering in our behalf, even if they were inclined
to do so.
We entertained the hope a month or two since,
and expressed it, that peace might not be far dis
tant; but this hope was founded on the supposition
that no attempt would be made to invade the United
States. We believe the invasion of Maryland and
Kentucky, and the disasters to our arms in those
States, and the threat which accompanied the in
vasion to carry tbe war into tbe heart of the North
ern States, have destroyed the hope which might
otherwise have been indulged that the North would,
at some early period, propose terms of peace to our
government We believe that Maryland, Kentucky
and Missouri are against us by decided majorities.
Leaving out those States, we have but about five
millions of whites; and when was it ever known
in history that five millions invaded and conquered
a peace from twenty-three millions? If we can de
fend our own soil successfully, and protect our sea
coast from the ravages of war, and our negro prop
erty, we shall do remarkably well. No one can be
more anxious than we are to punish our enemies
by pushing the war into their very midst, but we
must not consult feeling alone in a matter of such
grave importance. The more we cripple ourselves
by expeditions into the enemy's country the more
we will expose ourselves, in the end, at home, to
the power and progress of bis invading armies.
The child must learn to crawl beforo it can walk.
The prospect is by no means bright or cheering.
We are no alarmist, but we must deal frankly with
our readers. Still greater sacrifices and sufferings
are before us. We can only brace ourselves and
meet them like men.
Hon. J. R. McLean, of the Confederate House of
Representatives from the sixth district, haa been
confined by illness for several weeks, but has re
turned home in an improving condition.
Yellow Fever. We rejoice to see that this
dreadful malady is evidently on the decline in Wil
mington. The number , of new cases for several
days ia comparatively small. "
' . A Pnbllo Keceasitf . ""' '
The exigencies of the war are forcing, upon us
great changes in our population. ' Many persons of
vicious character hitherto living m Northern Cities,
have come South, and under various pretences en
tered the Southern army, but. soon deserted and
are now roving the country. They are not of us,
and may not be trusted. Many of our own popu
lation have deserted, and fearing apprehension have
not returned homa, but seek to elude the officers'
search in strange neighborhoods. ' Men who are
untrue to their country's flag cannot be trusted.
Besides this, the occupancy of the sea-coast by the
Yankees have necessarily driven out many of the
black population into other districts, and hence the
discipline which formerly controlled them has be
come more lax. Moreover, what may be the pre
cise effect of Lincoln's proclamation upon the black
population generally, as the period draws near for
its proposed execution, cannot be fully determined.
So far as their past conduct since the war began ar
gues anything, we may expect no difficulty ; yet the
mixing of new and strange associations, and a
knowledge of the proclamation itself, which many
of them undoubtedly have, may work mischief
among them, demanding the most rigid police.
At all events, it is not a time when our domestic
discipline should be overlooked or indifferently at
tended to. We beg, therefore, to call the earnest
attention of the County Courts of the State, and
the authorities of all our towns to the immediate
and fretting importance of ettabluhing and organ
ising at an early day, a strong and effective a'kued
police throvghout the State, to be lcept vp during
the war. The necessity for this is so obvious that
we need not argue the point Let it be done quick- .
ly if we would avoid contingencies of the most se
rious character. This police in the Counties and
towns should be as large as possible, embracing
every able-bodied white male from 16 to 60, not
physically or mentally incompetent; and in the
country, especially, it should be a foot and mounted
armed police. The labor might be so arranged as
to make it a light burden to all, and yet preserve
an efficient organization for any emergency.
Ellis Light Artillery."
This company has among our readers, many who
feel deeply interested in its welfare. It is one of the
oldest artillery companies in the service, has been
in a number of battles, and yet, so far, has lost few
er men by disease or by the casualties of the war
than any company we know of.
The company has been recently recruited. Capt
Lloyd's battery from Tarboro', having been disban
ded, 55 men and one Lieutenant, with two pieces,
horses and harness, from that battery, have been
added to the " Ellis Light Artillery." The compa
ny is, therefore, now composed of 150 privates, 14
non-commissioned and 5 commissioned officers.
The company is, however, quite destitute of win
ter supplies of clothing, blankets, &c., and without
tents. It is, however, in good health and spirits,
with as brave a set of men as the service can boast
We have, heretofore, alluded to the neglect with
which this company has met in regard to pay. We
learn that the government now owes the privates
and non-commissioned officers of this company, their
$50 bounty, $50 commutation pay for clothing, and
ten month wage ! Has any other company in the
service been thus treated J The company belongs
to the 10th N. C. Artillery, of which CoL Bradford
is Colonel, and we would call the special attention
of the Colonel and the government authorities to
this fact The officers of the company now, are as
B. C. Manly, Captain; B. B. Guion, Sr., 1st Lt ;
C. C. Wrenshall, Jr., 2d Lieut ; L. Dunn, 8d Lt ;
J. Payne, 4th Lieut ; James Powell, Orderly Ser
geant; James, McKimmon, Commissary Sergeant;
W. B. Allen, 1st Sergeant; Win. E. Pell, 2nd; H.
P. Lyon, 3rd ; James Dunn, 4th ; W. A. Thompson,
5th ; Slade, 6th ; James Thompson, 1st Cor
poral ; H. J. Robertson, 2d ; R. Brooks, 3d ; M. F.
Cummings, 4th ; W. A. Wedding, 5th, and W. Bry
We learn that the company will soon have two
Napoleon 12 pound guns instead of the howitzers.
In its present condition it is prepared for good ser
vice, and the boys will do their duty. We wish
them better luck in future as to pay, and expect
them to do honor to the Old North State on every
field where duty calls them.
Tansixr roR toe Government. The Tanners
throughout tho country are going into the business
for the government The government, it appears, is
buying the hides and cattle and the tanners are to
tan on shares, or so much per lb. It is an impor
tant movement We would substitute, if it be
necessary, any thing jn the place of leather,
in order that our brave soldiers may be shod this
winter. Our soldiers must have clothing and blan
kets, or covering and shoes and hats, no matter
what it may cost If our men are kept in the field,
their real wants and the wants of their. families must
be supplied. But will this plan reduco the price of
leather to the people f The government will doubt
less pay a full consideration to the tanners. By
what principle of justice or mercy can they ask the
people more for an article than they do the govern
mentf The same principle holds good as regards
manufacturers, farmers, and producers of all kinds.
Complaints. A friend from Buncombe County
writes us :
" If the news is bad, let us have it The people
have a right to know it in reasonable time. No
good will come of falsehood and concealment"
The above expresses our opinion, but what can
the newspapers do when they have no news, or when
the news is so conflicting that the truth cannot be
ascertained, or when the government sup presses it T
We suppress nothing that can be useful or impor
tant to our readers, yet there are events frequently
occurring, relating to the movements of troops, &c,
&.C, which common prudence dictates should not
be made known to the enemy.
We have not changed our position a jot, in re
gard to the proper conduct of our affairs, but as
Solomon says, there is a time to all things.
Vallandigham on the Stump. This gentleman,
while recently canvassing for Congress in Ohio,
was exceedingly pungent and severe upon Mr.
Lincoln and hid administration. Vallandigham
on the hustings exhibited a five dollar gold piece,
and said that when Democrats were in power that
was the currency ; but now this is the kind, (hold
ing in view an old Continental bill,) and five hun
dred of them will not buy a loaf of bread, and in
one year the man who has a pocket full of " green
backs" will not be as rich as the man who has
twenty-five cents in his pocket to-day. The Mid
dletown Ohio Journal says that in a speech at
Post-town, he declared that President Lincoln was
the worst disunionist North or. South ; and said
that " tbe sun, moon, and seven stars would turn
to gore, before the North could conquer the South ;"
and spoke of the abolitionists and emancipators
being in favor of " raising the Iheh flag," if they
could only get some good Democrats to fight under
it That though they were black republicans, they
always showed tehite flags and feathers.
