We don't like to giv place to rimnoy, but
when they coibe in this form and character, we
give way for once. A soldiei- reports as a fac$
that a courier frontShermnai to Grant has been
captured, with a'dispatch to the~ effect, that un

'go up,' for lack of provisions and ammrunition.

- hat the negroes are enlisting ripidly, drilling
thoroughly, and are making firie looking soldiers.
* Great enthusiasm prtvails, one gentleman is said
to have off'ered three hundred thousand dollars

them. The, army also,is said to bein fine spirits,

The late themg raid of Sherman developes
-the fact, that "all was grist which came to their
mlt," in'other words they stole everything in
-their way. We hear of one shabby villain who
took from a lady's head her winter bonnet-her
only one-ard filled it' with dtied apples. To

-the woik of plunder. 1 rery'house b,n two were
robbed of valuables, and emptied of its stores.
Then the ineendlary's torc pwas applied.- The,
railway, passage and'freight depots were the first
to bu'n-then the ancient "Carn*allis House",
quart6rmaster and comi'issary stores, stores of
George Douglas' and Dr. letain, cotton-ware
houses, Wateree Bridge, Pfasonic, Hall, Fnrolling

on Main street. , The house of Bishop VAvas and
another over whIch guards were plaeV were
the only ones - ot pillaged., They dug for', trea
sure-found whiskey, got drunk nd made nighO
hideous. Theit rapacity, bratality, cunningf.im

They seemed to take special delight in frighten-.

with heartless, wa&on cruelty.
Being favored with a glitupse at a Courier of
the 27th, n1t., we make a shrt summary of the
principal points found in its tekegraphic eblumn.
Of cotse it abounds in bombakt aud.replete with
untruth Hear what they'say:
Their pt house-burner, Sherman, denies the
late replses by Gen. Johnston; -that he.has fol
loved out, successfully, the programme laid down
befbre leavingt6atinah T and being now joined
by Sch1field,'is able to whip the combination of
Lee and Johnston, and will be with Grant in a
very short time. That Johnston ha*s bt 40,000
aien, who are comp jtely demoralized gnd cannot
stanid befbre him. That the whole effptive force
of,the Confederacy is only 120,000 men, all told.
Shermian thinks the little affair on hand -almost
wOdad- up, and with that view in his -transit
through Fa et-teville, N. C., blew up only the
arsenal aii'powder' magazine, because neither
North or ?outh would neced pow,der-much longe4
Lincoln believes there will be .but little more
fighting, that his work is nearly finished. Lee
is considered hopeless and despondent 'and will
s'ooz sutrender his tatterinelion band of rebels,
and that propesitient to give up slavery, and lay
dowri-armsawill be gladlly gcepted by leading
rebels. A. H.- St'ephens and~Hunter, are said .in

The announcement of the death of tbs gallant'
officer will fill the heitts of many with sadness,
for, y the- unvkryidg exercise of his'many oble
qualities, he had drawn arouid him a large cir
ci of fk1bnds.
It is unadvisable, in a notice of this king, to
set forth a co~mplete.history of Colonel MAXFEz,
bat it is a source of genuine pleasure- to kno'w,
that in after times whefi the lives of our devoted
defenders shall come to be written, his nape will
Colonel MAFFrr was en'dowed with a sound,
Vigorous mind-an'even temper and a rare noble
ness of heart. He was genetous, true and just.
At the early age of nineteen. years, he mar
ried Miss Lavinia GaHman of this. District, with
whom he lived most happily fpr a fetyears when
Death snatched her away, leaving - a tender
daughter to console the bereaved husWnd. Not
long after he had attained his majority, 0e *as
elected Major of the Upper Battalion of the 39th
Regiment S. C. Militia, and in a few yeara was
chosen Colonel of the same- Regiment. In t6at
pdstibni"e first evin&d the- possession of that
aptfide for the military service, which he after
wards so hongrably illustrated on the battle- Id
At the commencement of our present d' culty
with the United States, be-was among the first
to tender, his sertices to his country, and in
April 1861, be began service as Captain of the
4ckens Guard, Company C., oft the Third S. C.
Regiment, in which capacity be. proved faithful
to every trste: which his comrades gratefully
ackqowledged-, whpn, in 1862, it the re-organiza
tion of the army, they unanimously re-elected
him their captain. He served in this position
throughout the. campaigns in Virginia, in 1861,
and uxtil 1st July, 1869. In the battle of Savage
Station, his Lieutenant Colonel-the lamened
Gailingt'n, was killed,.and he, being senior cap
tain, was promoted Major. In 'the battles of
Maryland Heights and Sharpsbarg, during-the
ensuing September, he acted well his part and
passed through' unhirt. But in' the bbody and
glorious battle of Fredericksburg,. on the 12th
day ? December, 1862, he was Again wounded,
and although it proved painful, he remained o'
t'ht battle field to assist with bis counsel .ad
cheer by his presence
On Christmas 'day that year, he led to tbre
altar Miss Sallie Halfacre, the 4aughter of Hu-iry
H4lfacre, Esq., of this district.
In 1863, in the battles of Zoar ChIrch, Chan-.
c4lersville, Salem. Church and Gettysbarf, he
commanded his Regiment, -the two other field
oticers being absent, having been severely
wounded. . 1is success as an independent- tegi
metal commander was complete. In November
of that year he was present with his Regiment
iu the bloody skirmishes around Knoxville, Ten
nessee. In 1864, after Lngtree's Corps had re
tunedato Gen. Lee, he.participitted in the battle
of the Wilderness Qon the 6th of May. Here his
leader,around whom crustojed so many rich hopes
for the future-the intrepid Nance-feIl. By tbis
event bhe wras made Lietenant ColongL. He took
part in the battles of Spottsylvazfia,Ndrth Anna
Rua, Cold Harbor, and in the skirmi.shes around
Petersburg. Gn the 4th day of August, he was
asgned to the command et the 7th S. C. Reg't,
a sister dommnand in the sam~e Brigade. Kershaw's
Division h&ving been ordered to Lieut. Gen.
Early in the Shenarrdoah'alley, he took part in
all dreir movements uintil the 26th.day of Augustg
when he was captured while in command of an
extensive picket 'line in front oi Charlestown, Va.
Not long afterwards his friea&'and Colonel, the
chivalrous outherford fell mrtally wounded, and
Lieut. Col. 'affett thus becaTh"CloneL. But he
dsnever permitted, Ibecause of his captivity, to
assume command. Just as hre was about to be
exchanged, his greatspitit brurst its shackles-be
died! 'Oeep is the .sorrow fgt, by his devoted
RegirAnt, forghe had won 'their entire conifidence
by ' unfalterable devotion( 6*- the cause, .bis
ready obedience to his gaper6rs' and by the re
peateud exhibition of the true qualities of a comn
niandel-. His family have i6tn a devoted me
br, th'e community an upright, bigh-mninded,uge
ful citisen, and .his pomrades a leader they loved
to follow !. Let us censole ourselves ina meaaure
fpi his loss, with the thought that though his
form is bidden from us by thg1grave, yet,the
memory of his worth agl deeds is-still ours, and
will eier be chenished.

O FFICERS arid solAiers of the Seventh Regi
ment of Sauth Carulina Cavalry, who are
di6 absent without leave, are called upon, to re
~urn with.60t delay to their command.
Many brave men linger to protect their suffer
ing hom~es, or to engage 'the enemy upon jheir
own spil.- Cowards make the, same excbe ;- but
by remaining absent from- their posts'in the army,
they weaken our strength and postpone the' hour
of victory and peace.
Spidiers must promptly return, o1' be pablished
as."deserters," arrested 'as "jeserters," and pun
-ished as "deserted." -
The destruction of railro'ads is no excuse.
Brave men 'will make their journey on foot, or on
horseback, and rejoil' their posts of duty is~ the
.army. It will be no excuse to.at soldier, that he
is doing duty iD another command; this can ol
e permitted by an. order from the Commander
inChief-without his order it is a njltary crime.,
