MR. EIHTOR.-Allow me lo make a suggor-tiun
ihrough your Columns lo tho Candidates for seats
}a our Legislature the next regular Session :
X'eiifi. CandUlnite :.-DEAR SIRS-The way!.?
open ; the trai t is elear, and riders aro up : and
njtbyugb wt are b,,t a poor clod-headed, know
nx<tbing,6'.rt of a fellow, yet we have been think
ing, or trying to think of ?ho best method cf
every man's doing his duty.
The Crisis in the history of our Country Lns
arrived when every one should do his or ber duty,
and their whole duty. * The struggle for indepen
dence has fallen very unequally upon the differ
ent individuals io our community, as well os
p?berr, of nearly ail classes, among whom the
subscriber is one, on whom the burthen of war
has been but light. Th;rc its those who have
sent and sustained their sons; there are those
who have -no 5"n? to send : there a;e tiosq whoie
husband's are gone, and like the poor trfdew
. f who cast in two mites," they have thrown In
. all their living ; and there are those who have
?3$ I.iisband.; ^scnJ.
Now, gentlemen^ tho suggestion wa wish to
^aake to the fortunate elect, is this: That at tbe
peat meeting of ?-ur Legislature a WU be pro
posed to levy a special tai in kind on all tho?e
who aro not si'rviug, ox have n??t sons or husbands
in service, or have not lost sons or busbnnds in
^the service of our common country, for thebonefit
of the destitute widows and orphans, wives und*
children, who hare stood and aro standing be
tween us und s mereile'es foe. You may^irobably
think that the Legislature has" made ample pro
yisiou for this class of parsons, but wo UL H wc?? it
has not. ?ur Leg?jature has done" well and
wisely in furmisbirig bread ?c., hut ibero ure ma
jiy without meat, or the mean3 of procuring it.
Kow there are a freot many persons cmoijg us
who are net doing th'-ir CO-Btry any service, ex
cept such as is imposed by taxation. They too,
or ?any of them, possess large estates, and are
enjoying a superabundance of1^ tire luxuries of
life. We think that it is but a reasonable con
clusion that every true-hearted Southern man or j
woman will be willing to bear a proportionate,
part of tho heavy burthen resting on us by giving
a part of their abundance ta feed the hungry
wives, widows and children of our poor soldiers
who have acted so bravely and nobly in sncriti
?ing their lives, r-nd every thing eira in the, cause
of liberty and independenco. Wc will all expect
to ?hare ? (juiilly (bc'pricclcss boon when obtained.
In Conclusion, gentlemen, we will be pleased Ju j
hearfrem y-n though the press er idhcrwfcc.
We fool tcrlain that as many us favor tho .'chcice j
will be elected, if it U a dozen or two. Bo assured '
. weare in fy?r you tooth aud toe-uail.

hroad folds wo 'find this stripling, in company
with stout-hearted brothers, friends and school
mate?, ready to meet the enemy and expel? him
from our soil. From that hour until thc du y ol
his death, through all tho trying orrie <ls of the
camp, tho sentinel's exposed and l*-nely ro-unfl,
tho long and weary march through summer's heal
or winter's snow, or amid the oread cot.Gict ol
raging battle, GOODWIN DD ?ISO B, when physical
ly able, was always at bis post, putriutieu'.ly and
impulsively performing his varied duties with
unfeigned cheerfulness und without a murmur.
By so ennobling a course of conduct, he enjoyed
tho cntiro confidence of his officers,, and th<
friendship and esteem of his compatriots in arms.
A brother's \0o and admiration for n brffther'?
gallantry and honorable deportment prompts this
humble tribute to departed worth : and tho writer
feels well assured that thc ties of natural affection
have not caused him to pen one word in extrava

praise can never be lavished ru?on^ur brave and
glorious Southern martyrs.
By tho untimely demise of fbo<9ubjcct of this
notice, a kind father and a loving mother and
sisters and brothers be.ve been made to mourn,
but they entertain the hope, that, through tho
mercy and goodness of a Redeemer on High,
they will all meet again beyond the tomb, where
sorrow is unknown. D. lt. D.
