A ART7SAN WARFARE.
The assignment of Miaj. JoHN JEN
KINS to local partisan duties of defence,
at a request of his native State, now
without a regultir army, is 4n omen of
god, and we hope will be followed by
the appointment of other bands of parti.
sans under equally' competent leaders,
as Majors or Captains.
It will be disgraceful if this .State,
signaliaed as it was almost exclusively
by the partizan service of the revolution,
-and the exploits of MARioN, Su11=1,
HaMxoN and others, and marked by
features of soil pe uliarly favorable to
ranging and partisan resources of defened,
should be left entirely at the mercy of
the foe, because no regular army of the
West Point line is in it. Even in reg.
ular war, in large masses, our people
hanve proved themselves able and will
ing to fight against odds of invaders
but in partisan warfare, well organised
'and conducted under leaders of local
qunlhcataons, odds much greater iday be
successfully resisted or annofed or de.
Let a few of our best young active
oMlcers of tried qualities, be assignel to
duty, and the young men now claiming
descent from the leaders of the revolu.
tion, and from the followers of MAmIox,
will prove their lineage and renew or
enlarge on the soil of Sooth Carolina
the partisan records of a war of defence.
We have the men and the resources
and the occasions-let tlio encourage.
mont and authority be givea promytly.

FACTS ABOUT vaH EVAC7ATTON O
Oniur.Fsrok.-We have had the pleas.
ure of meeting Captain Valentine. of the
artillery service of the Confelerate
States, who was present at the ovacua.
tion of Charleston. He furnishes us
with some interesting facts rtlative to
the "closing dramea," that will set aside
the lies that the Yankees have publish.
ed, and-their sympathizers in our midst,
the croakers, have retailed.
The evacuation was conducted in the
most quiet and orderly wian'ner. At
Fort Sumter -we had only three 10 inch
Columibiads, the other guns being small
carroniades, designed to resist an infan
try attack by boats. At Fort Monltrie
,only nine guns were mounted, and thiese
were all spiked, as was every piece of
.ordnanco about the harbor. The two
Bllakely guns--the seven hundred
ponsnders--were blown up, and can nev*
er be refitted by the enemy.
The report tht the citidens of Charles.
ton received the Yankees with delight,
isfalse and slanideronsu. It is especially
slander'ous of&)he nsoble ladies of that dc*
voted city, who have iever been most
loyal to the cause, and who no'w 'apurn
and loathe the abomninab~le -foe. There
may have been "womegi of the town"
who rejoiced at th~e advenut of the Yan.
keea--."a follow feelitig" etc.
It is ssd, hbwever, to n.te the fact
thaqt the leadittg niemnbers of the fire de.
partment remained beldnd, annd -have
fraternized with the' entemy. Among
these were a number of'rabad1, original
Recessionists-J. ILegaro Yates, who
boasted of hmaving fired the figt gun ir.

others. Their names will not tie fr&

Bentonsville is a small village, - on a
little stream known as Mill Creek, in a
Southi-easterly direction from 1alaigh,
ahnd, say, twenty-two miles from Smith
field. The locality is similar to that oftlh
renowned Wilderness in Virginia-flat,
thick and swampy., Little artilitry, con
sequently, could be used on either side.
The enemy were inoving.towards Ga1ds
boro to efreet a junction with Schofield,
the 15th and 17th corps being on one
road and the 14th and 20th on the other.
Learning this fact, General Johnston
threw a portion of his armsy across the
front .of the lat ter division of the' Yankee
command, and the desifbd attack was
brought on, His purpose was evidently
to whip the enemy in detail. Our men
never fought better. The Federal line,
were charged repeatedly and with suc
ecss, the Yankees giving away fr'equtnt
lv in confusion, and, proving themselve
thtoroughly unable, where the number
were even Approximately. equal, tc
withstand the. vigorous attacks of om1
During the latter portion of the
engagement, an attempt was made by
General Johnson to flank the Yanket
positiont, but, failing from somie cause it
its exec'ution, it was abandoned and the
fight ceased, leaving us ill possession 01
all we had gained. During the iight out
lines were rectified, and we awaited the
anticipated attakk on the following day.
The next morning the 15th corps wa
brought up, but did not, make an assanit
until the afternoon. This was repuls'ed
with ease. Skinnishing continued all
day. On Tuesdny, the 17th corps was
brought up, and very heavy skirmishing
resulted. The enemy felt our line fron
right *o left until, it is said, finding at
opportunity, ie made a hold push for thC
town cf Bentonsville,.which was reaceld
by Iw. divisions. At this juncture Gen

information from H1untsville, says the
Montgomery Adirdser of the 16th, is
that, about two wveeks ago, the number
of' Yankees there was estimated at
20,000. Theso'estimates are, however.
generally exa~grated. W6 stated two
days ago, on infornat-ion derived froim
a gitizen of Jackson coumty, that the 4th
Ynnkee army corps had h-ft North
Alabaina for' East Tennesieo. The
Yankee guards were posted everywhere
in the town, but most persons were glad
ofit, as they atfhrded protection frctn
the disiurbances and depredations of
diisonlerly soldiers. No citizen, male or
female, was.pennitted to buy as much
as five dollars worth of apnythin, with
