RHAN9'5 AXXY IN TH E ROCKY
MOUNT SECTION Fdrzngton's Aistory of Fazrfield). writer who tells of Sherman's oh throulh South Carolina hasa t ifie as well as a sorrowful -theme. c veral days before the arrival of the i my at Rocky Mount, February 22nd, 0 1865, the soutbern heavens were cov- f ered wit the smoke of burning build- t ings.- Each day the smoke appeared neat and nearer and the hearts of I the People beat faster. Next cme a ; of faxitivis, fleeing from their hovneendeavorlng to save tbeir stock 44d a, few va!nables. Then came t strigfjig soldiers wit bmany tales of i woe and horror. Next was heard the skirimish near Gladdens, then the smoke of tho tiuiebers' buildings was seen in b!ack columns ascending hea- t venward, then came the sound of the taps of the drum-. The yankee sol diers dished up to the doors, gold and silver watchea and silver plate were t demanded, and whether given up or not, the houses were thoroughly I searched and every thing they wanted stolen. Often when they did not wish the articles themielves they took them t and gave them to the negroes. t Yardu were cleared of dogs, in one f instance a soldier presented his gun to I shooc a dog which had fned to its mis- t tress' ft et for protection. Had not ani officer ordered him to desist, death might have been the result to the lady (Mrs. Robert Ford.) Fire arms we~ taken away and destroyed, a ereat many thrown into the Catawbs River. The poultry was all taken, baeon, r flour, corn meal, corn and provisions ( of all kinds removed. Every locked a door was forced open, gin houses and E cotton burnt in every instance. This I much was done by the first installment. Lite in the evening they put pontoon bridges across the river and a part of the army went over in the afternoon of the 22nd. It rained and the water rose and broke the pntioon-. ' By the morning of the 23rd the ecampmeni reached from Caldwell's Cross Roads, on both roads, to Rocky Mount Ferrf. Tce six days and nights that the army soent there was a time of much sorrow and fear to the ladies and few old men who were at home. Gen. Jeff C. Davis, of the U. '. Army, had his headquarters at the house of Robert Ford for t wenty-four hours. He drove Mrs. Foid, her ag~d mother-in-law and the children of the C family from her room to au Lpen port a ico to spend the night, an unpleasantly Celd and wat one. Ile occupied her i room, much to her discomfort. Gen. Davis travelled in a a fi e silver j mounted carriage brawn by . two fine t white steeds, stolen on the march. His d meals were served on silvor waiters. i Gen. Shermaa travelled throng h this vicinity en horse back and save t the wanton destruction of property, a did- nothing to render himnself oh nexions. He had burnt ten buildings c belonging to Mr Robert Ford, among f them a large barn and stable. Several a secret efforts were made to burn thei dwelling house but it was save through the kind efforts of T -. private soldier, w b be glad to ' fast friend in th . tI He-fond some Mason about is the house and asked Mrs. ord if her husband was a Mason. On being an e swered in the affirmative, he had the ti house and yard soon ciearod of pil- s lagers, gathered a few provisions and d sent in, and placed a guard over the v premises. When he moved he left a o paper which he hoped would be some e protection, but there was but little left ti then to protect. e: The yankee soldiers shot down all a kinds of stock, destroyed all farm im- it plements and burnt the fencing. Dam- ri ing their six days stay at Rocky Mount they foraged the country for miles. going in squads of Irom four to ten sometimes without arms. Gen. Sher man's headquarters were nea't he at Barkly mansion. He treated the ladies M in tais section politely.h The neighborhood was so pillsgedh tha, the geople for several days hati to. r( subsist on the gleanmmgs fromn the. tc camps. Mr. J, H. Strou of .bester S county was very kind to th-' pe sple in gi their sore distress. Hie sent an ox-eart at regularly with u.eal and fl.'ur. His re name will ever be green' in t be mem irn di of the unfortunate people of the hi Rocky Mount section. The good peo- ti, ple of Bascoinvilte, Ches-er county, pi and othors alao aided them. All' aid or rece red was from private person<. kt For two years the ra'ions were mainly pi Low peas boiled in water and a bit of dt corn bread. Without money, clothing wt or credit there was t ea1 fear of starva te tior. m After the army passed, persona in Ti the track of its march came and claimed fa all unknown hti c'<, and broke-n down D and abandoned vehicles of ali kinds, at A few badi some catdle left.

After alluding to the 'icommon sor row" the King concludes by again pledging to "walk in the footsteps o! the late Queen in the fulfillment of my great responsibilities." The King- timperor has sent a special message to the people of I.ia and a greeting to the ruling chiefs of the native States. He refers to the late Queen'i special interest in India, to his own visit to that country, to the deep impression he received there, and to his purpose to- follow the Queen Empress in working for the well being of all ranks in India. The King has sent the following message to all the British colonies and dependencies: "Ta my peoDle beyond the seas: The countless messages of loyal sym pathy that 1 have received from every part of my dominions over seas testify to the universal grief in which the whole Emnira now mourns the loss of my belond mother.
