THE BUTTLE Ot EflSTPORT.
The January number of the Con
federate Veteran contains the fol-
nving well vouched for story, co
led from the Iuka, (Miss.) Vi
There are many people who never
heard of such a battle. There are
even old citizens of this count v who
have no recollection of it, although
living within a few miles of the
Eastport is situated on the south
bank of the Tennessee Kiver about
eight miles north of Iuka. Forty or
fifty years ago it was an important
business point and had several large
tores and a commodious warehouse.
The landing is at the foot of
a bluff of considerable elevation and
the water is deep at all times.
The battle occurred October 14.
1804. General Forrest had just re
turned from his celebrated raid into
Middle Tennessee, during which, in
twenty-three days, he had killed,
captured and wounded 3,500 Feder
als and secured a million dollars'
worth of supplies. He had crossed
the Tennessee Iliver at Colbert
Shoals. At Cherokee Station on the
morning of the i:$th, information
was received through scouts that a
large force of Yankees was ascend
ing the Tennessee River and it was
believed that a landing was contem
plated at or near Eastport.
To meet this raid, troops were sta
tioned at different points. A force
was dispatched to Eastport under
command of Col. D. C. Kellev. a
brave and dashing officer, who had
achieved distinction on many hard
fought fields, although by profession
a minister of the gospel. His com
mand consisted of about SIX) men, a
part of the iwemh Tennessee and
Forrest's old Regiment, together
with two piecesof artillery.
Col. Kelley and liis brave troops
reached Eastport on the morning of
the 14th, when a fleet of transport
conveyed by two gunboats, was seen
in the distance ascending the river.
Kelley barely had time to make pre
parations for battle.
Placing his section of artillery in
position where it commanded the
river landing and masking it skill
fully, he had his horses sent to the
rear and hid his troops behind the
crest of the ridge, with orders not to
fire until a signal was given.
It was an exciting time. On came
the enemy's fleet direct to the land
ing. The three transports were blue
with Yankee soldiers, there being
not less than 3,000 on board, the two
gunboats standing to the north shore.
As soon as the transports were
made fast to the bank, the stage
planks were lowered and the soldiers
began to disembark.
Company after company marched
ashore and they had counted sixty
horses and three cannon on the
Then the signal was given, just as
the stagings were covered with
troops crowding to the shore. A
sheet of flame bu'st forth from the
crest of the hill whilo Walton's Ar
tillery, stationed in the old fort,
threw a shell into the troops and
another into one of the gunboats,
where it was seen to explode with
Tho cables connecting the boats
with the bank were cut, the trans
ports drifted back, the stagings
crowded with men dropped into the
water, drowning scores or them.
Nearly 1,2M Yankees were now on
the bank and exposed to a plunging
lire from the hill above, without or
ganization and without any chance
of protection from the withering,
death-dealing bullets. The cooler
headed ones rushed down the bank,
except some fifty, who threw down
their arms and surrendered. The
transports made no effort to save
those who had fallen into the river,
but backed rapidly down the river,
olaved upon all the while by the
Meantime the Yankees on the
shore to the number of about 800
succeeded in making their escape,
after throwing away their guns,
knapsacks and overcoats, by pursu
ing the retreating boats down the
river about half a mile and out of
reach of the Confederates, where
the transports hove to and took the
frightened wretches on board.
The results of this brilliant battle
to the Confederate troops was the
capture of 75 Yankees, 250 killed and
drowned, 3 pieces of rifled artillery
and 00 artillery horses, besides small
arms and clothing in large quanti
ties, also thwarting a raid that was
no doubt contemplated by this ex
pedition. All this was accomplish
ed without the loss of a man.
The Yankees retired down the
river, reporting that they had been
attacked by all of Forrest's Cavalry,
and made haste to get into safer

"We had only a single man
wounded. We were unable to pur
sue the retreating Federals down
the river bank quickly because the
high weeds about the lauding ob
scured their movements and left us
in doubt as to the numbers not join
ing in the retreat. So soon as we
had made sure of those remaining
by capture, our horsemen began pur
suit of those retreating, but found
the narrow ground between the
river and the bluff impracticable for
cavalry, and by the time we had se
cured our prisoners, and dismounted
our men for the pursuit, the Feder
als had outstripped us in distance."

WARNED BY DUBOIS.
Republicana In the Senate net n Tip
From a Untiring Colleague.
In a speech in the Senate last Sat
urday, Senator Dubois, silver Re
publican of Iowa, said that the
scoldings of members of the appro
priations committee, the midnight
sessions of the Senate and the neces
sity of work on Sunday led him to
say that n he was a member of the
next senate he would renew the
fight to strip the AoDrooriations
Committee of its autocratic power
and to distribute the various appro
priation bills. Then he added: "I
tninK the next Senate should divide
the appropriation bills. It would be
a good time. No party will have a
majority in this chamber. There is
a distinct oartv here now called the
silver Republican party. They will
not co-operate with you (turning and
pointing to the Republican Sena
tors.) You have not the Dower to
organize the Senate. While saying
to us lor years. 'We will help you
make this fight for silver.' vou came
out at St. Louis us the advocates of
the single gold standard, and now
you see what you were warned of
mere, you lose the coast Senators.
Just so fast as the people of tiiat sec
tion have an election for Senator, joat
so fast will a Republican Senator go
down. There have been seven Sen
ators elected there to take the
f laces of seven Republicans. One
lepublican comes back of the seven,
and just so fast. I say to you, a9 the
people there have a chance to ex
press themselves, just so fast will
you lose a Republican Senator if you
cling to the single gold standard.
You cannot organize any other
Senate. As we said at St. Louis, the
Republican party as a party which,
as a party, has written its last law
on the statute books of this country.
If you get your tariff bill through, it
will not be by Republican votes.
You have not enough of them. Y'ou
cannot get them; they do not belong
to you, and you will be further from

Mt. Pi.kasant, March 1. Mr. J.
E. Tygert, of the firm of J. E.Tygert
& Co., manufacturers of fertilizers,
Philadelphia, was here this week
prospecting with a view of estab
lishing a plant for this company.
He was just from the phosphate
mines of South Carolina and Florida,
where heretofore lie has been get
ing his rock. He is thoroughly con
versant with the manufacture and
saleof fertilizers in all its detail,
and the needs of the country in this
product, having been In the business
for many years. He expressed him
self as highly pleased with the
quality of the rock here, thinking it
the best he had ever seen and the
easiest to mine. Our geographical
situation is also in our favor, and
Mr. Tygert thinks a manufactory
would pay a handsome dividend.
He proposed to place two thirds of
the stock if our people would take
the remainder. We hope our men
of means will give substantial en
couragement to enterprises of this
kind, lor 111 no better way can a
town and country be built up and
the price of property advanced, and
material wealth added to a com
munity, than the establishment of
'Tis true we are not as a rule a
manufacturing people in the South,
because heretofore we have so
easily made a competence and some
fortunes in agriculture; we have
heretofore neglected those things
in which large fortunes are made;
and now, just at the time when the
products or the iarm are so cheap,
and agriculture no longer profitable,
it does seem a godsend that this
new source ot wealth has been dis
covered, and another avenue opened
for profitable employment not only
for the land owners, but for a vast
number of laborers that are no
longer needed on the farm. We
have many natural advantages over
the people of the North for manu
facturing, and in this particular in
dustry would it not be the part of
good business enterprise to establish
a plant here for the manufacture of
all kinds of fertilizers and use our
phosphate at home, and thus get the
full market price for it, besides
establishing a new industry? We
are not presuming to advise in this
matter, but we are sure our people
are not getting full value for this
product, because it is being so rapid

a newspaper prints such a reflection

to the fact that the people believe

England's Declining Industrial Su
premacy. Machinery is the single ilem of manu
factures in which English exports snow
an increase during these twenty years.
Even in machiuary tho Germans have
lattterly discovered that they can make
a better article than the English ; while,
in the iron and steel industries goner
ally, the Knglish no longer dispute Ger
man supremacy. In 1 s;i, the Knglish
Iron Trade Association sent a deputa
tion to Germany and Belgium to dis
cover on tho spot the reasons why those
countries were extending their export
trade in iron and steel so much more
rapidly than England. The report of
this deputation emphasized the supe
rior character of the machinery and labor-saving
appliances found in the Her
man and Belgian foundries; showing a
remarkable advance as compared with
the best-appointed works in the Mid
lauds. It attributed this advance and
others to the great attention paid to
technical education during t ho last half
century ; and concluded with tho an
nouncement that Merman superiority
rests upon its merits, rather than upon
any adventitious circumstances. The
London Times, commenting upon this
report, remarked that It was fairly to
be inferred that "the days of tho Mouth
Staffordshire iron trade, with the ex
ception, perhaps, of the sheet-iron
branch, are numbered." Four years
prior to this report, the United States
had succeeded In wresting from Eng
land the place of honor in tho iron in
dustry, by producing a larger quantity
of pig-iron. On tho basis of tho sta
tistics of the last ten years, it will take
more than four years longer for Ger
many to drive England from tho second
place into which the United States
has forced her Into tho third position.
Iron is called the barometer of indus
try; and it is not necessary to follow
the exports of England into other lines
to establish the point that her foreign
trado is declining not rapidly, hutnone
the loss surely while that of Germany
is advancing, and advancing at a more
rapid rate than the decline in England.
It is an elementary mathematical prop
osition that, if these processes con
tinue, the time is not far distant when
