1- '~ilrnr.~J?Li'AN HARTRIDOE, member of ]
Congress from Georgia, in a letter to his
constituents, speaks- manly sentiments in
'the annexed extracts :
Independence ii as dear and desi*able'
now as it was when you first entered* upon
this struggle; aye, far dearer; because of
this contest has developed all the fiendish
passions, and brought to light the iou!
purposes of the people with whom you
are at'war, and bas proved the wisdom of
your action in severing your connection
with them. They offer you no terms ex
cept unconditional submission or extermi
nation. vThoy openly avow their purpose
to emancipate-your slaves, and bring you
under a constitution charged, to suit their
own views. There is no hope for you in
submission or compromise. You cannot
resume ytfur position in the Union, .upon;
tho same footing you formerly occupied.
A powerful and fanatical majority will
control the affairs of the nation to your
degrafolioasaud ruin. No paper guaran
ties or Constitutional clauses can protect
you. That position would your repre
sentatives occupy in the Federal Con
gress 1 No men of honor or self resoect
would expose themselves to the insults
and contumely that would be hear?d upon
them. Picture to yourselves the recep
tion they would meet with from a sneer
ingjiuid exulting majority, looking with
contempt upon the representatives of a
conquered people. What service could
they render you against the encroach
ments of a majority who hare shown that
they pay nb regard to the sanctity of a
Our only hope is in the attain ment of
our independence. And I firmly believe,
my countrymen, that th?3 glorious result
is in store for us. God,_ in his- wisdom,
may see fit to afflict us with more and
greater miseries; but never will he .desert
a cause sa -pure and just as ours, and
sanctified by the blood of so many patriot
martyrs. We can not and will" not fail.
In the vocabulary of freemon, straggling
for all the rights which aro dearest to
man, and incited by such glorious exem
plars as have illustrated-ac-ur history, there
is no such word as fail.
There is no just reason for despondency.
The enemy is no nearer the attainment of
his object to-day than he was .four- years
ago. The capital of your efcntry 'still
stands proud .and defiant, surrounded by
the gallant sous of every State in the Con
federacy. The army under Hood is "still
powerful and unconquered, in spite of the
boasts and false dispatches of the .en
emy. Although the enemy occupy the
seaport of Georgia, the whole of the in
terior i? freed from their presence. Sher
man's further advance will be contested
inch by inch, and I trust and believe suc
cessfully.. Your 6<ans.and brothers in the
field h.'vve no thought of sui mission. For
years they have perilled -lihvniid limb in
our cause. Let not us at b 'mc weaken
.them by despondency and doubt.
As TsDCSTRTot's LITTLE GIRL.-A ?tttlc
girl ia Clarendon District, abolit elgin
years of age, by -th? name of Ka uv wa
asked the other'day by. ter sister in-law
if she could.not spin ns many cuts of yarn
in a day as she was years of agc. Imme-,
^diately her mother replied, that she could J
*"pot, asthe task was too difficult. NeVer
theless, little Kate, with a- determined
mind, said she woura* try it the nent day.
Sere-enough next morning, bright and
early, little Kate was up to begin her
day's task. At dark she came with her
yarn for her mother to reel, and behold !
when reeled little""Kate had her eight
cuts! Cannot some moro, of our little
'girls follow the example set by little
Kate Clarenden Banner. ;
. The Bazaar.
The Bazaar opened last night under the
most favorable'.auspices, and suchen jam
as.it proved to be, will long be feelingly
j remembered by many who . experienced
: its effects on their- persons. -^Barring the
squeezing and pressing x>f the crowd,-and
.the rather free manners*'of some of the
boys, it was a most delightful and success
ful affair. Prodigious amount* of money
were expended,. aud all the purchasers
were as much gratified in^eing relieved
of it, as the fair venders were in rccejv
ingit. The tables-were spread with ob
jects of great beauty and fair value, and
the restaurants abo?uded w;ith the most
substantial as well as the daintiest food.
Oysters only were lacking, owing to cer
tain causes, which will soon be removed,
when we hope they vrill be supplied. .
We have seldom seen, even before the
war, a more bountiful^ elegant and der
lightful entertainment than the ladies have
provided for us. The cheapness of their
articles is remarkable, and the social
oharacter of the. Bazaar -riot its ' least at
tractive feature.-Columbia Guardian,

WHO WOULD GO BACK ?-The . Selma
.(Ala.) "Rebel" thus plainly describes the
spirit of the miserable party who at this
stage of the wat are willing to give up
the contest :.
They arc prepared for the restoration -
of that rule which'four years-ago -had be
come hateful, and which we harve shed so
much blood, and made so many sacrifices
to cast aside' They are ready "to forget
the perfidious conduct of the "Northern
people, while *ere w.efo" associated with
them; their disregard of constitutional ob
ligations and sacred compacts*, iJieir grasp
ing avarice; their thieving propensities;
their unceasing meddling with our insti
tutions before the waf;-and the cold-blood
ed, barbarous and unmanly traits they
have exhibited since hostilities comntcne-.
ed, and swear the oath of leaky" and alle
giance to those whose garments are drip
ping with the blood of our fathers and
brothers slain in resisting their monstrous
.and insolent effort to trample us in the
dust of humiliation and subjection. They
would forget the.burning wrong*-wc have
suffered, the outrages our enemies have
perpetrated, the remorseless and barbar
ous cruelty, they have practiced upon the
helpless and imoffenJing, our country des?
olated, and our land dotted with the graves
of our fallen heroes, to procure for them
selves' an ignoblo and pu&ill'anioiis exemp
tion from thc hardships, the dangers and
sacrifices incident to the persistent and
determined prosecution of th? war.
One of the veteran and well tried divi
sions of General Lee's army lately sent to
that beloved chief and genera! a respect
ful petition for permission, if "compatible
with'the public interest and service, to be
transferred for a while to the Southern
coast; and iu this petition they said* " in
Virginia, we have fought like men; but in
South Caroliuaj we will light like lions."
Such js the spirit of soldiers; and this
is but a specimen of Lee's army, and of
Hood's army, and of good,-.tried soldiers
lt is not surprising to any who know
the spirit and character of our soldiers,
and pf the best officers' and exemplars
who have been with and before them, that
such expressions and utterances should
come from men who, fur inore than three
years, hav?e followed Wade Hampton
from his entering the war as a volunteer
colonel to his present well earned place
a--a general, preemiuelly distinguished
as a cavalry leader, but excellently good
for any arm.-Charleston Courier.
THE "INFAMOUS SEVENTEEN.-Wc had j
hoped that Georgia Would be spared the
shame and disgrace which a few of her (
sons, in he? own seaport, have cast upon
her fame. From the track of Sherman's ?
desolating march through her borders
from thc houseless women and children ]
whom he has scattered from his path, no
craven note is heard-no wail for re-un- -!
ion with the hated foo. Bereft of proper- !
ty, home,-even of shelftr, these people are '
still true to the cause. Their love is even !
enhanced by the injuries they- have suf-1
fered,.and they look forward, hopefully, I
for thc coming of the time (which God \
speeoil) when a righteous retribution shall ;
overtake the despoilor. Butin Savannah,
a city where intelligence, refinement and
wealth have been dispensed with a boun
tiful hand, where the first note of indepen
dence was sounded in the State, where
the chosen emblem of our nationality has
been unceasingly displayed to the gaze of
its citizens for four glorious years of na
tional life-in this city a few men (and
we thank God they aro so few) have bow
ed down and worshipped theGoldon Calf.;.
Encouraged By the roward, but not warn- "
ed by the fate of -their base cxamplar,
they have sold their birthright for a rness
of pottage. They have given another Il
lustration of the painful but historic truth
that, in all ages of th?s world there are
found men whose souls can be accurately
estimated in dollars and cents, and who
are ready to sacrifice liberty. Hpjior, eve
rything that manhood holds sacred, if they
be but permitted to pursue a peaceful
path to unmolested and degraded opu
lence. ? -
We trust that Gov-iHBrown will take
an early opportunity to spit upon , their
base recommendation and to show them
and the world that Georgia takes no C0un
sel of her dishonored and recreant sons.

Capture of Fort Fisher.
Night before last we went quietly tc
bed satisfied that ?11 was right at Fori
Fisher. Our attention, strained to th?
utmost for days, flagged, and we went im
mediately ta sleep. ?On yesterday morn,
iug.we woke to find Fort Fisher captured,
xis wc expected, G?n?ral Whiting fiwghl
like ? paladin. ' Both he and Col. Laml
are seriously wounded, and in the hands
of the enemy.
It is certain that generally the For!
was fought with chivalric bravery. Tc
this there were exceptions, . to which, al
some future time ,we may allude 'as a
matter of justice to others. We cannot
say when that time may occur,
* For the present it is enough for us tc
know that Fort Fisher has fallen, that a
division of infantry in" thc field were in
gunshot'mid did not fire a gun..to save it,
that vre know of, apd that heroic men like
Whiting, Lamb,'and. others are prisoners
-that the last port in the Confederacy
is gone,' and Ihjf?- it ought to have been
Wo will not trust ourselves to^say
more. If we said anything, we might pos
sibly, give vent to our feelings. We do
piace"the responsibility for our failure,
but jf wo once commenced we might give
too wide, a vent. . Our port ought not to
have fallen. There, is a responsibility
-that responsibility will hereafter ap
. So far as we can sec, the czerny can
not get to the town. -We say:-" so far
as vre.can see," for we place no reliance
upon what we' cannot judge for ourselves.
On Sunday nighty awfully tired, wc slept
quietly, thinking that all was right, de
pending upon an official despatch. Wc
found the thing totally different.
It is not our part to give advice to'our
citizens. There are so many that, under
any circumstances, cannot leave, while
there are so many that, under any circum
stances, mt?i leave, that no single rule
could apply to all. Every man's con
science must, be his own judge. We need
hardly say what wc will clo, or. try to do
-our course, we, presume, is anticipated'.
We are Confederates. If we ??jose, why
But we see no reason why i we, more
than Mobile, should be taken. God only
knows why our outer defences were ta
ken; wc do not; we have lost many good
and true friends, we may lose many more-.
We fear that they were sacrificed. Such
is thc impression we-havc derived from all
we havcJieard and otherwise learned.
There is'no doubt but that there is a
strong excitement against Gen. Bragg.
There can be no doubt either, that Gen.
Bragg has attached to him thc prestige
of bad luck. Unfortunately he always
has that prestige. Permanent 'bad luck
means permanent bad management, some
where. A mau with this prestige ought
nut to have been sent here.
Some people never learn anything, and
never forget anything; as, for instance, the
Bourbons and the high old "Conserva
lives" in this S'Ue, who, for once, did
seem to cooperate with the Richmond
cliques in maligning General Whiting,
an i demanding somebody else. They ap
pear to have'got their * desires gratified.
Gen. Whiting is wounded and a prisoner.
Is Gov. Vance perfectly satisfied 1 Ile, we
know, was one of the agents in overriding,
superseding and trying to ruiu Gen. Whi
ting. Al) right, we suppose, in a party
point of view.-Wilmington Journal, 17th.
Since the fall of Fort Fisher there
seems to be a lull in the war element, and
quiet reigns along the lines. The fierce
part of the combs* is yet to come. Elated
with their success thus far, the Yankees
will soon, . doubtless, put. foith ?mother
effort to beat back our troops. With the
reinforcements continually arriving, and
the 'position our lines have assumed, wc
trust his next effort will be. a futile one.

COST OF TUB TORPEDO THAT DID NOT
azc ar ?i* FORT FISHER.-Every appliance
which-scicntific knowledge and ingenuity
Souid. devis?-, and enterprise'and manly
daring execute, were put in requisition to
insure the success of this novel and im
porlant feature of thc expedition. The
boat selected for the purpose was the
Louisiana, a propeller of about three hun
dred tons burden. About one hundred
and forty tons of powder, together with
thc necessary Gomes fuses and other ap
pliances for ensuring an inslancous igni
tion of the vast masr, of powder that was
put on board before the boat left Hamp
ton Roads. One hundred and twenty
tons moro of powder were added at Beau-,
fort, where she put in on her way to the
sceue of action, making, in all, two hun
dred and sixty tons, or 520,000 pounds.
The aggregate cost of powder-and boat to
the Government WJIS slightly;in excess of
a quarter of a million of dollar/. The
boat wa?? painted white, her general ap
pearance being not unlike that of a block
ade runner-though, to do her atiict jus
tie'*, a somewhat more respootabJe looking
'craft.-Cor. N. Y. Tribune.
No BRA8?S FOR Di?pi'AiR.-Tue Mo

the situation, concludes thus :
There have been darker days than this
hanging over th^jjiiuse of ih% country, and
light has presently come to ?t. \ few
months Ot pat knee and effort, and we shall
