8ATURDAY MORNING, MAY 20, 18'5.
We have received a copy of the' New
'Ydrk Herald of tho'1otlh inst., sent us
from Charlotte, N. 0., by .our father,
-Mr. E. H. BRITTON. Those of our
friends who may wish to read the paper

We have been favored with the pe
V usal of a letter from Capt. J. J. LoGAN,
25th Regiment, Hagoods Brigade, which
announces the safety of the following
- named officers of this brigade. Some
-of these have been supposed to be killed
up to this time:
At Fort Columbus are Capt. Carson
and Licut. Lesesne, and at Fort Dela.
ware are Col. Simonton, Capts. Logan,
Mazyck, Hanahan and - Bartless, and
- Lieuts. China and Dibble.
Prom North Carolina.
The Raleigh Progress of the 2d inst.
announces that it is new known in that
city to be the settled policy of President
JOHNsoN to entirely ignore Governor
VANOIC and the present Legislature of
that State,'(North Carolina.)
The Charlotte Democrat of the 160th
inst., gives us tile following:
"Capt. Haight, of 1st Div., 23d army
corps, is the Provost Marshall at this
post, and. is authorized to attend to pa
rolling all men who belonged to the late
Confederate armies.- His office is the
corner store, Mansion Hguse building.
We are assured that the troops now
here are for the purpose of protecting
property and preserving order, and. so
far as we know, all the officers are exer
ting themselves to this end."
Mosby to his Troops.
Just before running away, the Rich.
mond Whig says, the guerrilla leader
Mosby issued the following address t(
"FAUQUIER, April 21, 1865.
"Soldiers: I have s.ummoned yot

We gave our views in our last issue
as to the proper course for our people to
pursue under the circumstances. We
care not to reprint that article or to
write any more on the subject. But we
will simply repeat, that inasmuch as all
armed disciplined opposition to the
United States has :eased in North
Carolina, (and we believe in all other
portions of the country,) it is our duty
to conduct ourselves as peaceablo citi
zens, observing the laws and regulations
of those having power over us, and ex
erting ourselves to preserve order and
rostore prosperity. Our armies have.
been disbanded, and further resistance
would be useless and vain. We. are
unalterably opposed to anything like
guerrilla warfare or bushwhacking. To
our returned soldierd we would say that
the best thing they can-do is to go quiet
ly to their homes and resume work on
their farms and in their workshops.
In a word, we are all virtually prison
ers of war, and it becomes us "to take
due notice thereof, and govern ourselves

By way sfIpana we have papers
from Houstoatid Galveiton to the 25th
tit. A grand nieeting was held at
Houston on the 22d, and anotler at
Springfield; and with considerable on
thusiasm it was decided to continue the
rebellion, although they had the new's of
the fall of Richmond and'the capitula.
tion of Lee. They declared the Trans
Mississippi Department to be suoiciently
vast and fuill of resources to repel- the
invasion, and insure its independence,
and to sustain Jeff. Davis. There were
some who thought otherwise, and Brig.
adier General Rawes, who commanded
Galveston. sent in his resignation, and
was replaced by Colonel Ashbel Smith.
General Magruder was at Galveston,
where he reviewed the troops.
A Federal attack on the coast of
Texas was momentarily expected.
The news from San Antonio announce
that a telegraph was about to be open
ed between thut city and Matampras,
and finally continued to Austin.
The schooner Velocity,-with cotton,
was captured on the night of the 2 1st

We are told that "deserters an d rob
bers-abound in the State, and are com
mitting the most flagrant robberles and
assassinations. Not even poor old we
men are free from their cruelties. It is
to be hoped they w.ll be punished."

of seeing Captains Maffit anld Davidson,

MEXIOAN )MIGdATIox.--The French

fuss about the proposed eoigration of our
soldiers to Mexico. Bl:t it is diflkult to
see what our governmeut has to do witli
it, since J.mericans have the right to
emigrate when and where they lilke. It
i stlI more difficult to see how Frartto
can object to it, untid such little matters
as the refitting and recruiting of rebel
pirates are explained away. -
BANKRUPT RnLs.-All the leading
rebel generals are bankrupt. Union
officers are lending them money to get
home. Kirby Smith, who thoughtenore
of 'cotton thsn of the confederacy, is
almost the only one of them who has
