From our Correspondet.t,
PUEBLA, (Mex.) June 4, 1847.
Mr. Editor :-It devolves upon me to <
send to his relations and friends, the mourn- i
ful intelligence of the death of William i
Cobb, one of the "96 Boys." <
He died at this place on the 2nd inst., of t
a nervous fever, arising from great debility <
and much exposure.
It is the highest encomium that could he r
passed upon the deceased, that as long as t
be had been in the army, he had not a sin- I
glo enemy to rejoice at his death. The 't
whole company was overwhelmed with t
sorrow at his loss. And, I fear that we t
have not left, such another example of con
rage, fortitude ant[ good behaviour as we t
lost in him.
When we were in danger of being at- i
tacked, a few days ago, by a large force of t
the enemy, like DeLoach. another who is t
dead, he left the sick wagon, and though t
in a state of utter exhaustiou, he formed c
into the ranks of war, with an unfaulteriug
resolution worthy of a true hero, and a no-. i
ble man, as he always proved himself to I
be in' the hour of difficulty and danger. -

Mr, Editor :-:It is my painful duty to
announce to his relatives and friends, the
death ofNathan DeLoach, which occurred I
at this place, on the 1st inst., at 3 o'clock i

he belonged, it is my pride and my plpa

his duties with more promptness and more <

all his comrades in arms. I never knew t

*PUEBAa, (Mexico,) 4th June, 1847.
To the Editor of the Hamburg Republican:
mr. EDInon-A number of your paper
was shown to me a few days ago at Julapa, 1
which, I am sorry to say, contained somec
severe strictures upont the "Field Officers"
of the Palmetto Rtegimnent. From the di
rection of the blows, you have seen proper
to send, I have no'optioni but to Consider
them as aitted particularly at myself. t
I catn conceive of no other than a good
motive on your part for making the re- I
marks alluded to, antd whether or not you
are sustained in your views by the coin-(
munity in which'you live, I feel it eqaally
due to my own self respect, and from the r
station in which I am placed at present, to I
the peoplc of South Carolina, that [ should 4
not lbe condemned by a sinigle good man c
without a fair hearihg.C
You have copied an article ih the Re
publican, signed -*Saluda," which you 4
suppose was written by atn officer of thec
regiment. The first view I ever had of (
the piece was in print, though I had heardr
that a young gentleman belonging to our
corps, feeling a naturnal indignation at t
your wanton and indiscriminate attacks t
upon all the officers of the South Carolina I
Volunteers, had written a reply to an arti- I
cde published in your paper, which, if n-i
notieed, he thought calculated to injures
the officers and to mislead the public.
l'ou must not be surprised if we heara
from you occasionally though wve receiveo
but't few newspapers from home. A!- Ia
though a subscriber to four Sooth Carolina t
papers myself, I have received only three
numbers. since we left the State ; but it I
has so happened, that in each of those
numbers I have found something deroga-v
tory to the Palmetto regiment. One wouldd
infer that.tho State was in a bad humora
for having furnished a qluota of men, or that
the means she so handsomely voted them, 4
were given with regret.
In order that my betinmtents may not be
miscoceivedor misrepresentedin the least
particular, 1 will make this farther prelim
iary remark. I had occasion, at the city
of Jalapa, to write a letter to the editor oft
~the Charleston Mercury, in reply to an ar
tile signedl " Many Citizens," in which I
alluded to "irresponsible scribblers." In
my allusion, I had no reference to a regu
lar constittuted press, or its patrons, but to
a writer eunder the i-u ios &atutre of
As far as cesm t of your I
omlants said tain dred spir

o Regiment might have beck bettered in
te hief olliccrs ; 2nd, That.those ofhe
eginont who are in a sutordijnatccoudi'
ion. have :been shamefully neglected; and
Id, Thai the public funds apprnpriated for
heir lieuefit, have been grossly abuse4.
To the 1st charge, I plead "Guiliy;"
nd have but a word to say in justification
f(my own course. As far as toy testimo
ty goes, I concede to the two Cnctlcmen
sou allow to possess the high ranks of Nos.
and 2 in military consequence, the trto
msition you have granted them ; and I do
leclare to you, that so far from being dis
satisfied with the grade you have been
>leased to assign me, No. 3, 1 esteem it
iot only beyond what I had a right to ox
)ect, but a standard greatly abovg the one
[should have fixed for myself. If I un
lerstand the qualifications of a military
:otnmandIer, they are, a sound and discrim
eating judgment, to know exactly when
o fight and when ta decline a fight; high
:ourage and indomitable energy to' execute
he purposes of the mind, impenetrable
toolness, a clear eye, and prompt decision,
n the hour of battle; and withal, a kind
md. generous nature, which inspires all
round hinm with confidence and zeal, en
indles their sympathies, and administers
o their wants. In these high attributes of
he commander, I assure you, that in my
tumble opinmon, there are more than two
non in South Carolina who are vastly
ny superiors. Not to mention others,
3en. Huger and Gen. McDulie have em
uent claims on the public, both for their
nilitary talents, and their military expe
-ince. Of the younger men of the State,
here are many who have more zeal, more
nergy, and more capacity than I have,
tad whose services might have been bro't
ato requisition to much more advantage
han my own. But to sum up all in a single
:xpression, I plead "Guilty" to this charge,
ad for my apology for accepting the com
nand of the Volunteers of my State, refer
you to the volunteers themnselves, whose
;cnerous confidence conferred upon me
vithout any solicitations on my part, has
aid me under a debt of gratitude which
he short term of my life will not permit
no to repay. When the war shall be end
;d, and- the few or us left, shall return to
mr families and friends, it is ut fair, that
ny comrades in arms, the real parties to
he contract, be allowed to render the ver
lict for or against me. For the present,
i least, the dignity of the position I hap
)en to occupy, and the honor of the regi
neat should spare my case the intermed
fling of impertinent volunteer jtrors, who
tot themselves in judgmeat, nt to sub
serve the ends ofjjustice, but to gratify-a
nalignant disposition for the foolish vani
y of being heard and talked of by the idle
-aders of a few silly newspapers.
To the 2nd charge, l plead "Not Guil.

or company officers, which has alrepdy

But to clear myself entirely from all ap
>earance of guilt under this charge, permit
no to remark, that in thme army, there are
it least five deparimients, as distinict from,
aid as independent of, each. other as cir
umstances will admit of. There .is 1st

or those itn health, anid with arma in their

herefore it is utterly impossible for him to
