Now is the time to destroy multithdes of these

and bushes, and if not disposed of will prove such
pe's to the fruit and foliage by-and-bv. Let thej
ehidmen, Whitt and black, be, set at* work, and
tey will render essential service.
- Would inot be s well for our planters to put
in a little more cotton than they did last year,
ant up to.the limit, or even beyond. It might
prove a wise measure in tle, end.. If peace is
made, cotton -,will be scarce. and the deniand
great, while provisions will be abundant and
cheap. Should'we have no peace, nothing will
be lost by the planting of it, for if we be over,
run, it will make no difference how much oi lin'e
i& planted. ThiLk of it planters.
"It was lately stated, at an English Bible As
Saoiation anniversay, that a calclulation had been
made respecting the pi-oportionate value of the
services of gentlemen and ladies as collectors
for charitable and religious purposes, and it was
found that one lady was worth thirteen gentle
men and a half."
Our devil says "bully"for theladies; his mother.
was one. He imputes this immense- superiority
to their sweetness of tongue and bright eyes,
having felt their effect himaelL
epartmeuta at Newberry.
4s an item of information it may be well to
notice that maj. Motte A. Piing1 is located 'here
as. Post Quartermaster of FieldTranportation.
' Capt. Rheti, Quartermaster of Forage . Depart
-ment, Capt. G. P. Elliot4pPost Commissary, and
W. W. Walker, Coimissry Agent, for the col
lection of suplies. We are-Vappy to state that
these departments culd fiot have been better
illed, and that these gentlemen are kind, affable
and atentive to business, as all ill admit who
have occasion to test the truth Ait.
in pursuance of a call of his Excellency the
Goterior, this body did not meet in sufficiens
strength to constitte a qwrum, and the few who
met moved almost immediately an adjournment.
We understand that Newberry was represented
*thus-0. Where are they, what doing, or what
afraid of?. One, it is said, declared that if there
was a probability of a quorum he would ge, sim
ply to prevent, iftpbssible, anything foolish being
-done, but there was ne~ quorum, and he remained
af holme. .A few sensible things nilght-have been
done, we. affirm, but alas for the' timnes there was
io meeting, or rather no transaction of business.
The large prptons madrpprintaiibn
ad to nothing, and the feeling call for provisionst
-obstantialanddelicate, which of itself ought to
lrerprved fn inducement, failed utterly' to
the body together. -Sic twanit.

[FOR TUE BER.MLD.]
BY Trz ROAD-SrDS, April -25 1865.
MEsSs. EIToRs:--Please allow me a small
space in your patriotic paper to return. m. ow,
aid the, thai*s, of all the paroled prisoners from
Gen. Lee's army, who have passed 1hrough your
town, to the,good people of South Carolina for
their'kindness to us. We left Aypomattox C.
H., on the 1-3th, where we had been for some
days, without anything to eat except green:beef,
and barely enough of that to sustain- life. Foot-.
sore, tired, and wizb heavy and siff hearts, but
by no. means subdued or conquered,- we started
for our homes in various parts of the Confedera
cy, and trudged on without rations through. Vir
giula'and North Carolina. So -weak and tired,
that but:for the hope of getting home, the phy
sical man must, iave given. way. - Without trans
portation, except as we pressed -it, we passed
through N. C., and -crossed the Catawba into
South Carolina,, there finding a train of cars wait
ing to convey a freight of toil-worn -and weary
veterans The condz'etor was kind and saw, that
all had seats. Arriving in Chester, we were imet
by grey haired fathers,.who extended their hands
in friendship, teling us to- go to the Commissary
and get rations, that there was plenty for us, and'
then that:the ladies would cook thein. We re
mained that-nigbt, and there bing no '.railkoad,
rarched S3 milea on'the way to New6erry.
When we -learned that by going to Hope Statief
we could ride 1I miles. Going -there we. found
it 'so, and took cars for Newberry. Arriving
there we went to the Hotel, but could find -io
cerk or any one totell us if we could-have su
per. Three of us then sought. tor,a private house,
and calling at Mrs. Dr. E., were invited in, had
supper, good iddging, and breakfaitnext m'orn
ing,.for all of which the kind lady refusedvany
pay. May God's ble.;:'g. always .e with her
and her sweet little children, atlso her good~
mother-in-law., Taking cars '.gain we ran to'
reenwbod, where the' good la<is'hbad dinner
prepared for us. 'God bless the ladies, again II
say. Many of us soldiers are single men, .and
might do wel to come~ back to S. C. for a wife.
Ma.ny oi thenitbeg me to return tanks to the
good people of 5'.C.for their kindness.

The fight, it is said, was a hand to.haiid one on)
the bridge, in whiich great pei-sonal bravery was
manifested by the heroic few who were streaining'
every nerve~ to hold the city ; but. "the power ofl
numbers" prevailed, 'and Columbus, like W-est
