A vapor like the sea's suspended spray

Mr. E. H. Williams, has commenced an en
gageraent with manager Ford. Ills merits as
an actor are so well known In this ctt, that
we need say nothing on that potnt at present.
But In speaking of Williams we aro reminded
of a theatrical reminiscence about eight years
old, If we remember rightly A company was
playing under tho management of the late Jat.
Fields, at the I Tow ard Atbencum, Boston, In the
latter neks of summer or early autumn, pre
paratory to opening a theatre In Mobile. The
business bm'omlng rather light. Fields decided
to take a farewell hcnellt and close tho estab
lishment, and ho selected the play of "Still
Waters ltun Deep," In tho belief that
hla old friends uould rally to see him In a new
pleco by Tom Tajlor, tho popular English
piny ii right. In bis company were Tom Placid e,
Jam (i Drowue, E. I). Williams, tho Kite Mrs.
W. II. Bmlth, etc. Nearly all tho company
protested against their cast In tho piece. Mrs.
Smith, who afterwards played Mrs. Hembold
In a manner that has never been ttmaled by
any other actress on this sldo of the water,
actually shed tears at the rehearsal w hen Fields
Insisted that she must phy tho part. Tom
I'laclde tlatly refused to piny the part of Brother
Potter and went cm a fishing excursion, and
Williams itas pmallcd upon against his hi
cllnatlou to assuuio tho purl. The actors
vera Milling to oblige Mr. Fields on his
benefit night aod lust appearance in Bos
ton, but they did not chooso to act up
precedents that they would not boullUngto
follow, when the season opened at Mobile. But
Fields was Inexorable. Uo had read tho play
carof ally and he knew that It might ho made an
Impressive one, although his actors could not
" Still Waters Kun Uccp," from Its odd title
and other causes perhaps, drew a full house
and was w ell plai cd, and lo ! auch of the prln
clpal purta made n decided, hit, and tho piece
altogether waa a splendid success, Williams
mad an Immcnco hit In "Brother rotter,' and
hla rendition of tho part has neier been ap
proached by others who have enacted It. On
tbu next morning the newspapers of tho town
gave columns of prauo to tho play, and
Fields aud hla lompany. Instead of pack'
lug tip their wardrobes, played Still Waters for
six weeks, to homci crowded with tho most
Intelligent peoplu of Boston. The iopularlty
of lltu play was o lasting that the same, people
attended night after night, occupying tho enwe
seats. and "Brother Fetter," on visiting a

Six day ago Brigadier General Wild left here
wtth a large body of colored soldiers, consist
ing of the 1st and 6th United States colored
troops, ad North Carolina colored volunteers,
and detachments from the 65th Massachusetts
and the 1st North Carolina, for the purpose of
sweeping that portion of North Carolina and
Virginia lying between here and Elizabeth
City, of all those swamp-lurking assassin,
which are ton frequently misnamed guerrillas,
a term which, with all Us contemptlbllltj. I In
every respect far too honorable for those dirty.
Gen dish scoundrels. Spain mnst have gone to
the bottom of degradation to have found the

than one of the most debased Sodomites to coin
or to bring up a term from the depths of per
dition Itself to fully express all that species of
Iniquity whleh belongs to the vlllalnoua ran
cidity of a term which would even shspo an
Idea commensorato lo the wickedness of thoso
unconscionable wretches. Were It not for tho
UmlWd space which prudence tells me can only
ne sparoa 10 so nnmoia n comrtDuior, i wouia
narrate several facta, the actual occurrence of
which cannot bo denied, but I mutt not be un
mindful of the smallness of your columns.
I am not a me w state positively toe numner
of soldiers, composing (Jen. Wild's brigade.
But he the number small or large, It will take
twice. If not thrlco the number to conquer
them, for such eagerness for the fray, I hare
never seen. i oen maiming oraera were an
nounced, the camp rang wilb shouts, and sev
eral who had been ordered to stay and protect
tho camp, took their guns and stated oft after
their regiments In full tilt. When the brlgadn
had gone suveral miles, they said they knrw
the commanding olllcer would not drive them
back then. But to crown the matter on tha
third day after their departure, a sergeant In
our regiment said to me, that there were twenty-five
men, who said they would follow him,
and he thought of starting off after tho regi
ment next morning, witnout tne Knowledge oi
Adjutant Bmiin, wno was len in commend or
the camp. From this, X endeavored to dissuade
him, uy slating tne periiousnesa oi sucn an at
tempt, as he might both endanger his own, snd
the lire of his men. But that argument seemM
to amount to very little with him, as he felt
confident of success. Jfovrever. I believe ba
gave over the Idea, for somo cause, of which 1
am not aware at present. The troops went ofV
with a fun determination, never to be captured
allvo. Hundreds of them, when leaving, waved
their uats,and most clamorously halloed, dtath
To what extent they will keep this vow, re.
malna to be Men. Both are terrible Issues: tn
die, particularly when unprepared, Is a solemn
thing, and to h canturnd by Davis and tho
hordes of his ungodly Institution Is horrible.
Saneness dictates I he One, and humanity thn
other. And to what extent victory hat perched
upon their banner, I am not able to say, but
as an evidence that they are at work, I will
reftr yon to a few trophies. If trophies I may
callthcm, which havocotno in during the last
1 no numocr oi wagons ana carta nave uocrt
serenty-slv, ench one loaded to fullness with
so termed contrabands, consisting of men, (few
able bodied,) women, and children, In cndlesa
profusion, of all sixes, ages, and colors. If
humanity has an anoraoly. It Is found in tho
latter grade. To this might bo added a large
nam her of splendid mule, fine horses, and
extraordinarily flue oxen, and not a small quan
tity of pork, beef, mutton, potatoes, and such
eatables, whh h will be some to Uncle flam's
great pocket, wo learn mat another great,
exodua may be expected In a few days. It la
vu-v Probable that Gen. Wild detains the able
tallied men for tb purpose of facilitating tho
expedition, and sends the less obla under mili
tary protection. Such a conrs nf procedure,
at any rate, I presume, will be taken quite
olfpnsivnly by the Southern confederacy, and
