of' the battle, as I do not yet know thema. 1
give a sketch of the facts that I know, for
time will not let me describe them at length.
When at Brescia, on the 20th and 21st, we
learned that the enemy had abandoned Mon
rechiaro and Castiglione. Consequently we
advanced with the Emperor to occupy their
positions. On the 2lth, we reached Castig
3ione at 9 a. in., and found a column prepared
foir battle a half a league thence, with the
Austrians, commanded by their Emperor in
person, who, they say, bad promised to take
them the same evening to dine at Milan and
the next day to drown us all Ia the Ticino.
I need not say that their army was formida
The attack, which was begun at Solferino,
situated near Cas'tiglione and Lake Garda,
one of the Mamnelon forts of the chain of the
Tyrol mountains, was not mrnde without sen
sible loeses on our side; for the two regi
ments of the line, the 91st and 98th, as~ well
as the 17th battalion of chasseurs, (1st corps,)
had to contend against a force ten times su
perior in number, and more advantageously
placed on this hill, and entrenched in a strong
town which crowned its crest.
Our men btegan to fall back, overwhelmed
by numbers, whenl the battalion of Chasseurs
of the Guard and the iign first regiments of
Voltigenrs, forming together & First Brig
ade of the Second Division, came tdj their
support. In full view of us they rushed upon
the enemy, who was beaten down and driven
away from his position. We followed, at a
charge, with the bayonet, to the foot of a
ravine, where there was another village.
The firing beya from tlie windows and
roofs, and it was here that we lost the most
mn. Nevertheless we drove the Austrians
Irom this village and from six or eight fine
positions, which they occupied, on the hills
that stretch along Lake Garda. Several vil
lages were also taken.
Finally, from constant firing, we had used
all our ammunition, and we had nothing foyr
defence but our bayonets and the stones that
fell in our way. We made good use of them;
but the enemy perceiving this, took advan
tage of it to stop his retreat for a moment.
Then the Grrenadiers and Zouaves came up
to join us, and sustained the fire with their
-mmU~q whilo e got freah -aannitiwn.
This was soon done, and we pushed on at a
charge, and they withdrew to the strong vil
lage of Cavriana. There they placed them
selves in the houses and the church-towers,
whence they fired on us with important effect.
But as soon as we got on the hill on which
the village is situated, we made a horrible
slaughter among them, and drove them back
While the infantry of the Guard were per
forming such fine feats on the mountain, the
whold cavalry force, which only joined us
within a few days, was equally active on the
plain at our right, where they fought with
the Austrian cavalry. The Emperor was in
the midst of us, going from one point to an
other,-without fear of the firing or the bul
lets of the enemy, which were all around
him. Ile encouraged us the whole day, and
we had need of it, for we were exhausted
with climbing and descending at a running
pace, from 4 in the morning till 9 in the eve
ning, and that in a tropical heat, without
anything to eat or drink the whole time.
To-day, as at Magenta, there is a suspen
sion of hostilities, to bury the dead and re
move the wounded. We have taken a great
quantity of prisoners and many cannon. More
over, we have all the best positions and we
are on the Mincio. One or two more blows
like this, I think they will have had enough.
Tan ACBTaIAN AccorNTs- or SoLFURIS.
The'Austrian accounts admit a loss of 20,000
killed, wounded and missing. The 7ight
wing of their army occupied Bozzolengo, Sol
ferino and Cavriana. The left wing marched
on the 24th to Gurdizalo and Castel Goffre
do, and, repulsed the advanc'.ng enemy. As
the Imperial army continued to advance to
wards the Chiese, the French, who had also
assumed the offensive, with their whole force,
pushed forward such large bodies of troops
that there was a general engagement between
the two armies, at 10 o'clock, on the morning
of the 24th. The right wing was formed of
the second army, under Count Schlick, who
maintained the position first occupied until
2 o'clock p. ;ne., and the left wing composed
of the first army, under Count Wimpssen,
continually gained ground in the direction of
the Chiese. Towards 3 o'clock the enemy
made a vehement attack on Solferino, and,
after several hours' hard fighting, obtained
possession of the place which had been heroi
cally defended by the 5th corp'd'armed. They
then attacked Cavriana, which was courage
ously defended until evening, by the 1st and
7th crp,, but eventually left in the hands of
the enemy. While the struggle for Solferino
and Cavriana was going on, the 8th corps
which was on the outer flank of the right
wing-advanced and repulsed the Sardinian
troops; but the advantage did nat enable the
Imperial Army to recover the positions they
had lost in the centre. The 3d and 9th
corps, which, supported by the 11th corps,4
were engaged on the left wing, and reserved
for cavalry attacks, made several brilliant
attacks. The unusually heavy losses, and
the fact that the left wing of the-first army
was unable to make progress on the right
flank and the centre apinst Volta, led to the
retreat of the Imperial Army. It began
early in the evening, during a violent storm.
AN Ezuuitsn ACCOUNT.-A correspondent
of the London Herald says, so little did the
French expect a battle, that on the previous
night a message, received from the King of
Sardinia asking for support in case he should
be attacked, met with a refusal, on the ground
that an attack by the Austrians was not pro
bable. At day-break, however the corps of
D'Hilliers came in sight of Solferino, and
was immediately set upon by a large Austrian
force and fought desperately. The Marshal
resisted to the best of his power and sent off
for support; but not before three hours of
dreadful carnage had passed, did Neill's corps
make its appearance. The Austrians were
then slowly driven back and the French con
tinued to gain ground, heaps of corpses mark
ing the fluctuations of the fight.
The Austrians were thus slowly driven out
of Solferino, but all of a sudden they made a
tremendous burst forward, and the French
were driven down the hill. They were ad
mirablysupported by their artillery, however,
and made a stand andl commenced once wore
advancing. It was like-a hail-storm of bul
lets and balls, and whole tiles were mowed
down by a single discharge.
-In~ the meanwhile the right and MpIt-a.
ofithe Anctrinnc =-- acraedly getting the
best of it. The Piedmontese were slowly
driven back. Canrobert's corps was also
heavily punished, and had there been a skill
ful general in the Austrian army, to collect
and concentrate their forces against a weak
-point in the enemy's lines, matters would
have assumed a very ditferent aspect. The
French commander sent forward the impe
rial Guard and a strong division of infantry
into the line against the Austrian centre,
and succeeded in breaking it. Instead of
bringing up forces to repel this formidable
attack, the supports were sent to the left and
right wvings, which did not need them. Des
perate attempts were made to recapture Sol
ferino, but the French held it, and presently
the Austrian bugles commenced sounding a
general retreat. An attempt was madle by
eavalry to pursue them, which led to an en
counter betwveen the F"rench Chasseurs and
Austrian Hulans, in which the fornmer rapidly
put to the right about, and retreated.
It is stated that not a single liungarian
regiment was allowed to take part in the bant
tIe, and the italian regiments had all bieen
previously pent into Tyrol.
Over 20,000 corpse~s are said to have been
bried on the day after the battle, and many
more were left lying in the corn-fields and

The Storm on Wednesday.
We were visited on Wednesday afternoon,
about five o'clock, with a severe storm oh
wind and rain, accompanied with heavy thun

that the lightning played antip tricks, During

are engaging In the cultivation of fruits and the
grape, on a very extensive scale, and the results
are proving highly satisfactory and profitable.
An interchange of sentiments based on the expe

fail to increase the general stock of information,
and hasten the day when the fruit business will be
an important interest as well as a popular pastime,
among the planters in this section.
Consistency,--Thsou art a Jewel!
Ma. YAxcuv, in his Columbia speech, deplores
the prospect of non-expansion by the South, and
looking to that consummation says:
" We must b~e content to exist, like the girdled
tree, lingering out a feeble existence, in a short
time to die under the infiuence of such a policy."
But a little while afterwards, having occasion to
exult ove-r the ability of our section to take care of
itself, he also says:
"We have eight millions of people educated to
the use of arms. .trainmed-to self iei&ner~ with~~a
rntireu-aowutrarg~oVernmuent princip tes, with
as much real spirit anud manhood ats was ever pos
sessed by anylpeople. We have unity of produc,
tion, unity of institutions and a compact country.
We have the great product without which tile
world cannot do'. We are rich in all the elements
of prosperity. When our fathers resisted the whule
might of England, they were scattered along the
seaboard of the Atlantic. They possessed no such
good governuments as we possess ini our State tv
ernments; they had no system of revonue such as
we possess; they had no such arims, or means of
maxnfacturing artus such as we possess. They
were but three millions in number; they were
divided even amuongst themselves as to the pro
priety of their resistance, andi yet f-or eight long
years they maintained the c'ntest with England,
and maintainedl it triumphantly ; we, far different
ly, far more lavarab.y situated, with nearly three
times the number, with ahnust infinitely greater
resource-s andi wealth, can defy a world in arms.
We have one other power, a power never to be
despise-d, always to b~e desired; it is the power
derive-d from beaing right in our cause."
Yet a section, thus fortified, thus blessed, thus
armed, thus enriched, thus inspiredl, is to "' linger
out a feeble existence," (if' confined to her present
proud strength) "' a a uhort tinge to die under the
influence of such a policy." Oh. the syincopes and
haypetrblels of aarxary!

Said we, "Down with the DouglasP
A highly respected correspondent and subscriber
rWishes to know "how it is that the Advertieer can
exclaim in one number "Don with the Douyla*;
and in the very next advocate him for the Presi
dency." Of course our friend .is jesting as to the
manner and matter of his interrogatory. He is
too fair, not to apprehend that we do not occupy
the position he ascribes to us. We did say "down
with the Douglas," as he correctly reads us;-and
we say so still, if any thing better can be done
than to acept him. You may ask, what is here
meant by 'any thing better?' We answer, the
election of a sound Southern man would be vastly
better. The election of a sound Northern mamni
would also be better. The election of Mr. Bucit
ANA would be better. The election of Mr. PIEn0E
would be better. The election of many other tried
men in the country would be better. But the ques
tion which gives us pause is, can any such man be
elected? We will be at once met with the charge
of sacrificing worth to availability, of bartering
principles for party -success. The imputation is
denied in advanee. Our position is more than
above-stated: Not only would the election of any
such man as we indicate be better, but the union of
*6 South upon such an one, elected or not elected,
would be better.
But in the event that the success of any such
leader shall be out of the question, and when it
shall appear that a large portion of the Southern
delegates to the Charleston Convention prefer
DOUOLAS to defeat, then come up the considora
tions we have suggested bearing upon the course
of propriety and policy to be pursued by South
Carolina in that emergency.
Will it be said, that it is at least indiscreet to
present any view favorable to the promotion of
DOUGLAS, until it shall clearly appear that he is
the best we can get? The answer is, th'at it Is
done (if the excuse be worth any thing) simply to
meet another indiscretion In certain influential
quarters. Let us briefly explain.
A feeling of strong condemnation had been just
ly visited upon Mr. DoUGLAs by the press of this
State, having reference to his whole course upon
the matter of the late Kansas imbroglio. With
this feeling fresh in mind, he comes to be spoken
for the next Presidency, as the possible nominee
of the Charleston Convention; and it is natural
that not only our press, but our people also, should
reject his. name in this connection, and perhaps
reject it wholly at first view. But a certain por
tion of that press (whether any of the people or
not, we are unprepared to say) go much further
and maintain that South Carolina should not
enter the Charleston Convention at all if there is
a chance for the nomination of DOUGLAS under
any circumstances. It is not for us, to blame
these exponents of public opinion in this declara
tion of sentiment. It was our own notion primo
intuitu. But reflection has lead us to think differ.
ently; and we now respectfully suggest that those
who have given expression to the more extreme
view in regard'to Mr. DOUGLAS are at least as in.
discreet in doing this so far in advance, as are we
in throwing out reasons that may require us to
come ultimately to his support.
It is earnestly to be hoped, that South Carolina
will not become committed on this subject further
than at present, either through her press, her pub
lic men, her legislature, or her people in primary
meetings, until she shall have heard more fully
from her sister States of the South, more fully
from the Democracy of the Union. Circumstances
may transpire that will make it both undignified
and impolitic In us, to refuse to go into the Char
leston Convention on the ground indicated. Let
us patiently await the developments of the coming
autumn and wiuter. At the end of that time we
can better judge what South Carolina should do
in respect to the Convention. As grent a scape
grace as SENA Ton DOUGL.As has come to be regar
ded, he may yet turn out better than we imagine.
He may yet entirely eschew the nomination, and
co-operate in electing a Southerra man, if he be not
too rudely thrown off in the South. Or if not that,
it may come to be the only chance for the South
(South Carolina with the rest) to elect the verita
ble DorotAs himself to the Presidency of the
Union ; and, after sll said and done, he might not
pi-ove the worst choice the South could make. We
haD~ .our corresnonrla'- ,'nw unlnrar~ wu~
tion, and we trust he will agree with us.
As to his other query, "err/at more heave you to
say for. Douglas ?"-wo answer, nothing. But be
assured, it is not because there is nothing to say,
There is much more to say (if it shall come to an
issue between DorotAS and a BLAcK fR.PUnleAN)
why the former should be supported by the entire
South. There arc views to be advanced too which
disrobe his political opinions of much of their seem.
ing repugnancy. But it was net intended here to
press their consideration upon the public. The
single object had in view while penning the pre.
sent and the preceeding articles on this subject, is
to' offer a respeetf'ul word of caution both to the
people, to the prsms, and to the political leaders of
South Carolinn ; and the motive to this, has been
a sincere desire that our beloved State should not
rush precipuitatcly into a wenk position, and one
that might pruve in the end hampering to her free
and full~netion with the Sooth for the good of the
South and for the common weal of the Republic.

" Dthyrambie.--A College Lyric."
Such is the designation of some verses which we
find this week in the Ml'ecury' Poetic Corner.
They are r-igned by hii.ox, and are dated at Co

*Cor.. A. Szrxxrs-Dear Sir : Enclosed you will
receive a letter addressed to me by Mr. B. W.
Woos.s.v, of Alabama, in answer to one written
to him requesting his opinion as to the uses and
benefits of the Camel, among us for agricultural
purposes. Should you deem the letter worthy of
ublication in your valuable paper, you are at
AaTESIA, (Near Selma. Ala.,) July 2, 1859.
MR. JoHN HUIET-Dear Sir: Absence from
home has prevented my answering your letter of
the 14th ult.
I do not think the Camel will entirely supersede
the mule. For many purposes I should prefer the
former, especially upon your Mtrong~ land. They
will not do as well upon slippery ground. In such
ease the load must be lessened, and then the Camel
moves very slowly-but cautiously however, and
would scarcely fall. These came from a strong
country, and will therefoere suit your lands. Tht
hoof is found proof against the rocks of their own
home, and also against the short flint rocks ol
They cannot be offeredl here at $150. From S200
to $450 I am assured will not pa'y the original cost
and the cost of transportation. That is $20C for
yearling Colts, and $450 for full grown Camels
from 7 to 9 years old. Intermediate ages between
those limits, increasing in price as they increase
in age, up to 9 years.
For barcaking up and bedding your "strong and
sandy " lands, you would find the Camel to answer
an admirale purpose. They would pull a much
larger plow than a mule, and plo0w the land deeper.
Then for hauling purposes, two full grown Camels
in good order, would draw as much as four ordi
nary mules-or if you preferred packing them,
yoiu could put on each Camel two bales of cotton,
or a t wo horse wagomn load of oats, or 15 to 20 bush
els of corn, and send in this way your cotton to
market, younr oats to the crib, or your corn to mill.
A great deal oIf the work on a plantationl, as you
are aware, is light work, and it is desirable it
sould lbe performed qjuickly-agech as running
around cotton when young; I should prefer a
mule, hserause [ could go closer to the cotton with
a light plow than with as large a one as you would
put after a Camel.
In the Savannah RepuWeoan of the 27th May,
you will find an artiel,. from me on this subject.
I will add here, that J. A. Macbade, who imported
the Camels which T have, will not bring over any
more. A portion of his cargo is in Mohile, and
for sale. Yours truly,
1IENJ. M. WOOL.SEY.

Concert at Olive Branch Academy.
Mln. Enton :--I enjnyod the plensant privilege
of attending a Concert which was given at this Acad
emy by the Students now under the instruction of
Prof. T. P. MosPas, on Thursday. the 14th instant,
commencing at 8 o'clock, P. M.
In as much as it was anticipated that there
would not he sufficient room for the audience in
the Acndemy, they avsiiled themselves of the vi
inity of the Church building in which the Con
urt accordingly came off. Bunt, notwithstanding
this provident measure was taken to accommodate
the audience, still there was not room to make it
comfortable. The assembly was not only a large,
ht wss also an intelligent and fashionable one.
The prelude to the exercises was a short address
by hlr. Mosrs, which consisted mainly of two

ht-wever, did not neglect to avail themselves of
the rare opportunity offered for social onjoyment,
as there was a continued buzz kept up by a por
tion of their number, during theperiods of relaxa
tion, which formed a striking contrast to the deep
silence preserved during the successive acts; while
others gazed, lost in admiration at the pleturesque
vimw before them, (as the actors seldom left the
stage during the entire performance.)
Several of the performers were quite small, but
executed the pieces assigned them with a'compo
sure and facility expected only of those far ex
eeeding them in age. Indeed, the young ladies
all did far better than we could have expected, as
severul have been under the instruction of Mr. M.
only a very short time. Since all acquitted them
selves so admirably well, it would appear invidi
ous to make distinctions further than to state that
Mies E A., with her clear and melodious intone
tion, made memorable those monesyllabic words,
h-a ha ho, ha &c."
Mr. M. executed the pieces he attempted after a
very pleasant and effective style.
The interesting as well as amusing performances
were closed by the Misses D., who sang most
beautifully that very appropriate piece, "W.ateh.
man, tell us of the night," in the chorus of which
all again joined.
Ur. MosEs Is an accomplished teacher, a mas
ter of his profession, and a worthy man-and we
cordially thank him for his very entertaining Ex.

crowned with success.
Two years ago, says the Chicago Press, the
place where the Church of the Holy Trinity
stands in Chicago, was part of the open
prairie. Within three months after o ening,
it was found necessary, from the crowds that
attended, to add two wings, and now the
parish has just roofed a church wich for size
and beauty of design is said to have no super

Banner has no hesitation in saying that in
five years time every ward in the city will
have its Catholic Church. In another part
of the same paper it is claimed that the Catho

The Athens (Tenn.) Post gives currency to

"'Rumors are afloat to the effect that there

INTERIOR OF AFRICA.-A young French
man, who has often visited the American Mis
sionaries on the Gaboon river in Africa, in

the river Nazareth, East of Cape Lopez. He
peneltrated three hundred and fifty miles into
the country and describes it as beautiful, the
population dense, industrious and ingenious.
Hie cr ossed prairies sixty miles long, covered
with verdure, abounding with wild cattle and
other animals. The people raise large quani
tities of tobacco and also cotton of a n'ne qtia!

BR UTAL MURDER IN FLORIIDA.-A corres
pondent of the News writes from Hamilton
onns y-Plorida,'under date of tha Sib i:nat.,
A most brutal murder was committed at
Whits Spring, in Hamilton county, Fla., on
the 1it inst., upon the body of Mr. 0. C.
Leonard, Manager of H. Buckley & Co.'s
Circus, by one Lewis Hlogans. It seems that
Hogans was cursing, swearing and black
guarding about the door of the tent, when
Mr. Leonard approached him in a very polite
and gentlemnanly manner and requested him
to desist, as such conduct was offensive to the
ladies; for no other cause he deliberately
drew his knife and plunged it deep into the
neck of Leonard, severing the jugular vein,
from which he fell and died almost instantly.
Hoganis was immediately arrested and regu
larly commnitted to jail.
THE BAvoNT.-The performances of the
French with the bayonet in the present war
ae waked up eur army officers to the im
portance of drilling their men in the use of
that weapon. Lieut. Gen. Scott has promul
gated a general order to the effect that, as
the subject of bayonet exercise and target
practice for small arms has been almost en
tirely neglected by the troop., especially the
bayonet exercise, the General-in-Chief di
rects that hereafter the' troops be regularly
and systematically instructed in the full use
of the sever'l weapons placed in their hands.

AcTIVITY OF NAPOLF.O.-A private letter
from the seat of war says that since the active
