A covrespondent writing from 'Lan.
caster C. 1, S. C., to tho Charlotte
Bulletin, opf the march of ,SIIEMAN
through t)at 'District gives an. interestV
ing accomit of tho dovastittion caused
by the vandals. As usnal, stores were
broken open and pillaged; the negroes,
according to the correspotident, doing
,as much i1 that line as-,the Yankees.
Three citizens were killed by the ene
my in cold blood. One of them, Mr.
1H-11In A.AMS, who resided near Lan.
caster, was -made a prisoner, and because
he could not walk fast enough to suit
their purposes, they shot him. Mr.
Aum:, BEI, a very worthy man, was
found dead in the woods where he was
trying to conceal himself from the foe,
with every ovidence of having been
drowned or throttled. Mr. C. . B.
NOTIInOP, a prominent lawyer of that
place, burned his own gin house on the
approach of the enemy. They then set
firo to his idwelling, burning it with all
of its conttents ; and a fe'w days after
warlds Mr. Noni:runor was found deead
ini his fiehl near' by.
No hoosu within the village. with
the ex ception oftle.jail. were burnel.
A fier el main body left. a squad came
in with order:, it is said, to firo the
plhce; but before they could put their
dosigis il execution, a body of V heel
er s cav.arv drove thomn awjy. The
printing oflice of the Lianenster /cdyes
was partially destroyed-ie press bro.

THE BA TTL OF A VERASZ'OO.
A moro gallant stati4 has not beelt
made during the war than tlto4 maintained
by a handful of oir army-at Averasboro,
N. C., on-Thursday,' the 16thof March.
Since the ovacuatiou of Charleston, Gen.
Hardee has been huirrying forward to
ef'ect ajunction with the remainder of
the troops under Generals Johnston and
Beauregard, nl sinco the 1st of March,
the enety have been close upoin his
rear. More or less of skirmisihing has
attervled his progress since leaving
Cheraw, and able generalship alone
enabled him to avoid a battle inl which
the superior numbers of the Federals
would give Sherman every advantage.
On Wednesday last, however, the bad
coudition ofthe roads, the proximity of
the eneyiv, thoir evident intention to
force a fight, and other circumstances,
combined to induce Gen. Hardee to make
a stand. Hisi army was then about four
miles from Averasboro, in the vicinity
of, wvhat is knov) as Smith's farm. Col.
Rltett with his brigade of South Carolina
legulars (conw isting oftle Ist Artillery,
1st Infantry, and Lucas' battaion of
Heavy Artillery. but acting as infantry,
and a Portion of tie Beaufort acnd de
Gardeatux Light Artillery) coustituted
the rear guard.
Skirmishing an(l sharp-shootiug coi
menced about noni, and our troops at
once set to work jt throwing up isuitch
elight entrenchments as the means at
hand permitted. A few rails here, logs
there, and a bunch of limbs iprinkled
wit 'dirt was all that could be had to an
swer the temporary purpose. On th;
day no tdetermined advance was made
b the enonv. Oiu% army, however
lst one of it:; bravest and most prom.
ising officers. Col. Rhett, commai n

him witile in comimnad of Fort Smmnter,

of fMuch more magnitude and'import ance
than was at first supposed. We have
not been able to obtain any entirely re
liable acqount of it, but will give such
information as we thirk probably the
nearest to correctness.
We have conversed with several
womled and other soldiers engaged in
tie fight, and theynil agree that it was
a desp'erate one. Most of them - think
our eitire loss was about 1,000, whilo
they say that (of the enemy imust have
been 4,000 or 5,000. A gentleman just
