SATURDAY APRIL 29, 1802.
The 43rd Indian regiment recently
sent home over $50,000 to their families
A Monster. An iron gun carriage, for
a fire hundred pounder gun is in ceusre
of construction 'X the Watertown (Masa.)
arsenal. It will bo completed in fw
days, and will weigh, twenty-five tons.
The Sharphootkr.-. At the fight
aear Lee'a Mills, near Yorktown, there
were many evidences not only of bravery
on the part of the gallant Green Moun
tain boyst, but the value of their eharp-
Bhooting was wonderful. A writer, de
scribing tho fif ht, says :
The sharpshooting was marvelous.
Ten men, with the telescopic ride, kept
the rebels two hours away from their
argest bun. Every man who came near
it was killed. It was utterly useless for
that long time. Tho rebel commander
lad finally to drive up an cnlire regiment
to the piece and man it by superiority of
numbers more gunners than could be
killed. It was fired thus four times,
when a shot from Kennedy's battery dis
mounted it. The value of sharpshooters
is a demonstrated fact of the greatest
AVltere arc tlio South Carolinian?
In the accounts of the recent battlo at
Winchester it is stated that Jackson's
army was "entirely composed of Vir
ginians, with tho exception of an Irish
battaaon. At JJrainesvillo the enemy
opposed to our forces were all Virginians,
too; at l'alrs UIuii, even, there wero no
South Carolinians. Vherc are tho Palmet
to chivalry? They began the row; they
forced other states into secession by their
own conduct; they bragged more loudly
than any one else of their anxiety to
fight tho Yaakces; and yet, with tho ex
ception of the battlo of Bull Uun, where
the whole of Davis's army was engaged
and of the attack on Tort Sumter, where
they brought ten thousand men together
to attack seventy, ana spent months in
fortifying themselves, before opening fire,
we have not hcrfrd of a South Carolina
regiment actually in battle. Massachu
setts men have proved themselves on many
occasions, it me 1 aimcuo cnivairy nau
been as anxious to meet Massachusetts
Yankees as they professed to be, they
need not have gone far to find them; but
tho South Carolinians seem to have shown
no anxiety of that sort 6ince they enter
ed Virginia. Is tho Palmetto blood real
ly too precious to spill? Are tho Palmet
to legs too ready to run, to be trusted in
front? Some foolish rebel out V est is
reported to have said: " Oh, we know you
western men will light, but we want to
6co if tho Yankees have any pluck." It
might bo retorted: "We knew these Vir
ginians and Tennesieeans would light
Ihemen of the border states ore a good
deal like ourselves but we want to see
the South Carolinians try their hand."
An attentive examination of the lists
of regimehts, and of killed and wounded,
in all the battles which have been lought
within a year past, will show that proba
bly not fifty South (-arnlinans have been
hurt. TliB only time they have been under
lire since the battle ot lull lain was at
Port lloyal, and there they ran away be
fore we got close enough to them to hurt
anybody. They used to talk tremend
ously in Charleston last spring of their
"unconquerable determination": did they
mean only an unconquerable determina
tion to secure their own saletv- Lc

A Touching- Letter from a Itcbel
The , following letter is from a Mary
land gentleman now serving in the Con
federate army. It is addrtssed to a lady
in Philadelphia. Tho writer was a
young man of promise, whose friends are
deeply grieved at tho wreck which trea
son has made of his prospects. The recipi
ent being loyal to the Unjon, has no hes
itation in making public whatever she
learns respecting the position of the reb
els believing that neither friendship
nor feeling should stand in the way of
Hospital C. S. A., )
IliciiMOND, Va., March 31 st, 18G2.
I wrote you some months ago, my dear
C and I then thought, as I said for
the last time. But somehow, notwith
standing your well known scorn for one
holding a position, voluntarily assumed,
in what you call the rebel ranks, despite
your persistent silence when a kind
word from you would be treasured be
yond pricein the face of all these, I
again write to you. Had health and
prosperity continued with me, perhaps I
might have had strength to keep my res
olution to maintain silence toward one
who I fear will never forgive me for en
tering the Confederate service ; but the
heading of my letter will tell you that I
am in that saddest of nil places, a mili
The regiment to which I belong was,
with others, at Ccntcrvillo during the
latter portion of the winter, where wo
were most comfortably quartered and
well provided. We formed a part of Ma
gruder's division in which are manyMa
rjlanders. Several came from the vicini
ty of my dear old home, that spot
which I so tenderly loved, and of whose
beautj I was so proud. Soldier as I am
C , I weep at tho recollection of tho
happy, innocent hours passed in that
dear home; and little did I think when
I first described its charms to you that
the lime was rapidly approaching when
I should bo exiled from it and from you.
But I was telling you I found many of
my former neighbors here, and thrown
in such close contact with many mutual
sympathies and memories, we have been
like brothers to each other. Constant
er phc cannot measure.
Wc might possibly overcome the im
mense army already brought against us,
for though inferior in point of numbers,
men fight desperately in situations like
ours; but were these repelled, who knows
what countless hosts' would spring to
arni3 lrom the teeming population of tho
North? 1 fear our cause is hopeless, and
this feeling dispirits our army, and pal
sies them on tho battlefield. Some aro
willing to surrender and make the best
terms they can, while others swear to
light until death. Our official councils
are divided. Some would stand bravely
and conquer or die, others insist on cau
tion; rod this extreme prudence keet;s us
retreating until we are ashamed. But
trust me our army will yet make .1 des
perate stand and prove, despite our late
reverses, that we arc not cowards.
As for me, C , I may not leave
this place alive; for though I am so much
better than I have been, the doctor tells
rue that danger is not yet past, and that
if 1 persist in exertihg myself as I am
now doing, in writing this long letter,
fever may supervene and result fatally.
Let it come. I havo no wish to live to
see the South subdued, and through fu
ture years to lie scorned as a traitor. If
I recover, the moment 1 can wield my
Bvvord 1 will return to my post, and at
least die a man. I do not Kay this in
boa.-ting or defiance, for I really regret
that I ever participated in rebellion: but
I have (lone it and cannot retract with
honor. Therefore, if our cause falls, I
hope to fall with it.
The time is short. The 1'edcral army
is moving fast upon us. The final strug
gle cannot be far distant. It may be tho
lust time I can ask it: will you not send
a few lines; not to the Confederate sol
nicr, or iclit,l, if you will call me so; nor
even to tne f mo er fiieud; but to a 6u k
and suffering man who long to know
you have still s'dae sympathy for him.

eailier hour in the day than heiivy engage

Tbe main Incident of tho battlo have al
ready beta ilIt-cuN. d at length, and as ihero
are. those who f.-el an interest in knowing
something ahout the reult of tha fight en
Sunday night, in the rtb'd camp, it will be
well to elate that jollity prevailed quite unl
vercally, so positive were thy that tbe vlo
tory woulj be complete by the coming noon.
IViiiH wire shipped of their contents,
trunks, boxea nnd quantities of Htorfs ran

j ibiUnt crowd of rebels, who oppeared to
ieit-1 in this specbdot intoxication for the
etttiri! night, llard -e begin the attack 011
Monday morning, but the result wai unealis
fuciory to him, as va roo& apparent by the
loss experienced, as well as the fact that he
retirnl from bis first po-itioo, and moved
towards the centre.
General Prentiss, together with th i major
ity of thosu who were taken on Sunday, ex
cepting a number of surgeons, hospital
stewards, wounded, sick and disabled, were
hurriedly disnrmed, and started tn route for
Corinth tho same afternoon. No immndiato
attention was paid to tho other prisoners
above mentioned, unless it wa- to sfe that a
proper gmud was detailed for'hospiial duty,
and inuir occasional removal lrom 0110 part
of tho c imp to another, at diiro-rent periods,
until the next day uljoiH two o'clock, at
which time orders were received to remove
all tbosn who could travel down the Corintb
road. The flight of the enemy, except those
under the imm diule command of Biaure
gard, soou after becain3 so precipitate, and
the Union cavalry pressing down In close
proximity, th-it the rebl g iard. at first con
sisting of ono hundred men, dwindle 1 down
i i GUecn minutes to (ibt)iit lilty ; uitil when
there became gn at danger that tlci bilance
would b'j cut off, they availed tlfitn.st.lvos of
a immediate opportunity to relinquish com
m ind over our miscellaneous crowd, makiug
a coupltt of way.-ido log cabin- two miles
out, a temporary stopping placj and guard
house. Within half an hour every ltubel had taken
good care to seek n sale place for his own
body, regardless cf what becamo of tho-rj v, ho
had been left in their charge. Tin 11 there

I found no other locality, however, where
this greitt disparity betweon the Union and

to by seme of ibe wounded Rebels, or ttnir

wounded in p. thickly woodiid locality, but
wh to trunks of large trets lay about in halt

dently thu figure of a man, covertd up by a
blanket, and lying close, np alongside the
Kg. The ground was thickly strewn about
him with bodies, many of whom I found to
be only wounded. Lilting the blanket from
tbe voiiDdfd man'- face, ns I dlmouutcd
from the log, ho immediately faltered out
"Oh, sir, I'm woundid; don't hurt me, my
leg ts broken and I'm so cold and wnt."
Within three laet of this wounded Seces-c.'8-ionist
lay a dead Unionist, with his bair
ami whiskers burned off. Just at thin period
two or three of our men cams up, and ob
serving tho horrid spectacle of their d-J td
brother-in-arms, with bis hair, whiskera and
clothes so burned, addrcsed tho wounded
man referred to in violent term", accusing
him of aiding In setting Ore to their comrae'e.
For a moment I f-H apprehensive that they
might retaliate, but upon his nssuriog liiem
that many on both sides were burned iu a
similar manner, quiet was soon restored. I
soon learned thatthe leaves and deal under
growth had boen fired in various places by
the explosion of shells, and also by burning
wads, the tiro communicating to the bodies,
burning them fhockingly. Some of the
wounded must have bjon burned to death,
as I observed ono or two lying, upon their
backs, with their hands crossed b -lore the
fac, as a person naturally does when smoke
or heat becomes annoying.
Ii"placing tho blanket over the face cf Iho
wounded man, I proceeded to step over an
other log near by, nnd was considerably
startled by a loud exclamniion of pida fioin
another wounded rebel. Having st.'pp d on
n small stick that hurt a wounded limb of
his by its sudden movement, ho was compel
led to Cry OUt. Il", too, won snuglr Iftid op
in ordinary, cloic alongside a fallen tree.
His wound was serious, and the poor nun
begged for some assistance, The only thing
I could do wc8 to get him a littli water, and
promise that somebody would soon come to
his relief. I do not think hu received any,
however, bel'.Tj the following day, as it win
more than we could do to attend to our own
euQ'criug men, flight being near. " Whit will
you do with us," said the wounded man to
me. "Take you, dn-si your wound-1, give
you plenty to eat, and in all probability,
when you aro able, require you to take the
oath of allegiance, and then send you hcin
to your family, il you have one."
"Oh, God I" replied the snflering mm, l'l
have a family, tir, and that's just what my
old woman told me. She said if tho North
ern men was so ugly and bal as our Gen
erals say, they must ha' changed a heap."
Occasionally tiiere was a pause, accompanied
by a distorted countenance, that showed the
painful character of his wound, " Stranger,"
continued tho prostrate man, " 1'vu got six
little boys at home, and tha biggest j ist goes
of errands. I live on tho river, in
Alabama (iho name sounded so peculiar that
I was not able toj recollect it) ; 'mint further
than thut' Cottonwood, lrom the bank, where
my house stands." "Wuat Las your wi:e to
maiutalu the family with, o:- do ts the Suto
help them?'' said I. ' O, she's shitty, my
wilf is, stranger, she's mighty sliiby ; slip's
a Northern born woman, and her father lives
in Wiscum-in now, I never was North before
new ; I married my wilt! in Alabama."
I was oblig'-d to leave this man, who pn
eet-sr.d an under-current ot nobility, although
his superficial knowledge had tallowed him
t ) follow the fort 11 ties of bis bai! lenders.
