Death of a Brave Man.
Wfl mrMitinnnri in roatorrlii v'fl
press, that Lieut. GambriIl,of Mississ
ippi, a Confederate scout, was killed on
Sunday last, nbout ten miles from the
Blapkwater river by the enemy's
vidtfttes. A gentleman just from Isle
of Wight county, givos us tho partic
ulars of Lieut. Gambrill's death. They
stamp him ono of tho bravest men this
war has produced. Lt. G. was over
hauled near Barham's Cross Roads,
Isle of Wight county, by twenty-one j
of tho enemy, who immediately de
manded a surrender, lie instantly re
plied, " I never havo surrendered, and
never intend to," at the samo time
drawing his revolvers and emptying
tho barrels of each, beforo he fell. Sev
en of the enemy were killed and two
wounded in the biief space of four
minutes, when tho Lieutenant fell mor
tally wounded. The survivors then
repaired to' the house of Mrs. Ely, in
the immediate vicinity, and told bor
that a particular friend of hers was
lying dead in the road a short distance
o'ff. Upon asking his name, and being
told that it was Lieut. Gam brill, Mrs.
Ely replied " that she would bury him.
if it cost her her life." " You ought
to," rejoined tho Yankees," "for a
braver man never lived," and they then
related to Mrs. Ely the particulars of
his death, and how ciosperaiey ne
defended himself. A Lieutenant who
commanded the gang, said to Mrs. E.,
r.W ri thought at ono time, Gambiili
would havo killed him, but added, that
had he done so, it would have consoled
hi friends to know that ho met death
at the hands of as brave a man as ever

says : '
Gen. Ilalleck About to Take the Field.
We learn by special advices from
Was1 ington, savs the New York Even
ing Post, of Monday, that Gen. Ilal
leck is about to take the field in person,
not, it is understood, with tho purpose
of relieving Gen. Hooker from his
command, but that he may be in the
very prcsonce of transniring events,
and the better able to influence their
general directLn. The authority upon
which we havo this information ia usu
ally well informed.
It is a significant fact, and one that
will increase tho confidence of the
country in General Hooker, that he
did not execute his late retrograde
movement until he had planned hw
pres nt ono, and had become satisfied
of its superiority to any effort he c.tuld
make in tho field ot Chancellorsvillo,
contracted as it had been by the un
fortunate defection of tho Eleventh
Corps at tho commencement of the
Progress of Gen. Grant.

Okcrlton Courier, l&th
Jack on onthe Sabbath.ThQ follow
ing extract from a letter of Gen. Thou
J. Jackson to Col. A. It. Boteler, will
now be read with interest:
Guiney'a Department, Caroline County Ya.,
December 10, 18C2.
I have read with great interest te
report of the Congressional Commit
tee, recommending the repeal of tho
law requiring tho mails to bo earned
on the .Sabbath, and I hope that you
will feel it a duty, as well as a pleas
ure, to urge its repeal. I do not see
how a nation that thus arrays itself by
such a law against God's holy day can
expect to escape His wrath. The
punishment of national sins must bo
confined to this world, as there are no
nat;onalities beyond the grave. For
fi' teen years I have refused to mail let
ters on Sunday, or to take then; out
of tho office on that day, except sinco
I came into tho field ; and, so far from
having to regret ray course, it has been
a source of true enjoymont. I lave
never ftustainod loss in observing wlat
God enjoins, and I am well satisfied
that the law should be repoaled at thy
earliest practicable moment. My rule
is to lot tho Sabbath mails remain un
pponod unless they contain a dispatch;
b"t dispatches are generally sent by
couriers, or telegraph, or by some spe
cial messenger. I do not recollect a
single instance of any special dispatch
having reached me since tho com
mencement of the war by the mails.
It you desiro tho repeal of tbo law,
I trust you will bring all your influence
tofyear in its accomplishment. Now
is the time, it appears to me, to effect
so dosirable an object. I understand
that not only is our President, bit also
most of our Colonels, and a majority
of our Congressmen, are professing
Christians. God has greatly blessed
us, and I trust He will make us that
people to whom God is the Lord. Let
us look to God for an illustration in
our history, that "righteousness cxal
teth a nation, but sin is a reproach to
Pleaso send mo a copy of the staff
bill, as I may wish to say something
respecting it in my letter to Colonel
Miles. Very truly your friend,

Gen. Lkk Angry. Tho Richmond
correspondent of tho Charleston Mer
cury says :
In his congratulatory order General
Lee calls the victory " glorious" a
very strong term for him to use. I am
satisfied ..hat old man Bob's back was
up as it never was before. You see
both his arms were gone Jackson
wounded, and Longstreet away and
he was forced to the ungraceful process
of kicking " Fighting joo" out of his
path. This mado him mad, really mad,
for the first timo since tho war began ;
and so when ho had settled Sedwick,
he rushed back through a terrible storm
to finish Hooker. Ho was in for blood,
and no mistake. Hooker, delighted at
tho excuse of a freshet, had departed.
Counterfeit "Greenbacks." It is a fact
notorious and' undisguised, that the
Yankee Government has winked at
the spurious issues of Confederate
money put forth at the North and cir
culated in the South. Becoming adepts
in the art of counterfeiting, and find
ing it mora profitable, tbo counterfeit
ers havo turned their attention to the
Yankee "greenbacks," and have pro
duced a dangerous imitation of , thorn.
Some of this bogus money was found
on the persons of the Yankee prisoners
taken at Chanoellorsville, and we are
glad to learn that certain spocalators
in the trash, who bought it up with a
view to the premium, have been done
for considerable sums.

We havo before us a dangerous

denominations. A roll of counterfeit
fives were picked up in Dr. Logan's
back lot a few dayB ago, where tho
Yankees, captured by Forrest near
Rome, had thrown it, while they wero
in camp under guard. Wo examined
all these counterfeits, and compared
thorn with tho genuine. The distinc

Response to Lincoln's Faat.
The good Book says tho prayers of
the wicked aro an abomination, etc.,
?ind the Savannah Repudlican thinks it
has never been more strikingly illus
tratod than by recent events. Lincoln
ordered a forward movement in Vir
ginia, and simultaneously, but to pro
ceed, a day of national humiliation,
fasting and prayer. The papers inform
us that tho religious appointment was
religiously observed, especially in the
Abolition capitol. The armies of the
North then moved forward, and we
have Heaven's response in tho late
glorious victory for tho Confederate
It follows, that Lincoln must bo
brought to doubt cithor tho efficiency
of prayer or the righteousness of his
causo. We should tako it that he is
staggered, for the more he prays and
"pegs away," the worse ho is whip
