Anderson Intelligencer.
This exeelleni sheet having recovered from the
-a a effects of Stoneman's raid, is again disseminating
useful intelligence to its large circle of readers.
Who is to blame, friend Hoyt, for the non-arri
val of the Intelligencer at thipffice.
' In the notice ,of the preliminary meeting, last
week, two errors occurred in the remarks-offered
by Rev. J. J. Brasdy. The words "proud" and
"free" acceptance, &c,. should have read 'fiank'
and 'full'. The error was in the printer-the
penmanship being delicate, in the haste to put it
up. the errors oecurred. We publish the ire
amble as corrected
"The war which for the past four years has
ravaged the country, aZ4 iiflicted great los and
ijry on the people, being now -over, and the
country ' left in an eahansted and suffering
condit;ou, it es ti , - as a people, to concert
and adopt aucei measures as may promise to de.
liver the country; as seedily as possible, from
its present condition of eibarrassment and dis
tress. And .whereas, in the Judgment of this
meeting, the cdurr di action which promises
mst.e bectually to bring about this result is a

frow speouraging it is to the preacher, after
a week's labor, mental and physical, in preparing
his Sunday sermon,:to -stand before a nodding,
listless congregation; and break unto them the
bread of life. Pearls thrown away, .bread cast
* upon the.waters, never to return, or lovs labor
lost; what is more trying, more humniliating ?
how many there are who lose every v:ord that is
* ~ uttered, who hear hia voice, know when hescomn
-*menbes, and sit as if on tho'rns'till he closes, who
cannot repeat the text,five inutes afrer its read,
or tell:the book, chapter'or verse fr'om which it
is taken. -A remarkable illustrgtion of this~ fact
was exhibited ot last Sabbath. A party of eight
* -or ten met at a neighbor's house, after service ;
a variety of topics were discussed ; conversation
* lagging, the morning's serneon was introduced
* and the remark made th'.t it was a fine one. Uni
fortunately for the credit of the party it was a-k
ed, "#1bat was the text ?" With shIameee confess
* no one co'uld answer, not one remembered what it
was, or where from. Those who "sat under the
droppings," and were refreehed, will know where~
the allusion points, by being.'told that the text
as found in Phillippiane, 2d ebap. 16th ferse,
*- reads "Holding forth, the word of life" .And
well was it held forth, but its beams failed of en
tgre effedt upon the inattentive and the nolders.
Did we have to preach, we'd stir them up every
* few minutes by shouting, wake ye sleepers, watch
sagn what of the night ? Ag is exeusable, if
ideiory is- trea,eherous, or the eyes grow heavy,
but for the y'oung there is no- excus9.

When war's dark cloid rose o'er his land,
-He roved in distant climes,
Where art snd science chasten life,
And.ccurch bels,tr,l.t{i r chines.
The charms of peaee lay iihis grasp,
AnI joy without a care :
But, ah ! "twas 'neath a foreign sky,
His loved onesocere not there!
His country calls-to her kPha.stes,
For her girds on his sword,
And nobly rn'shes to the field
To met the invading horde
The foernen fly, the victory's won;
Green laurels-crown his brow,
And thoagh.his'blood bedews the ground,
His heart is joyful now.
The clash of arms awhile does cease,
Awhile our hero rests,
And at the feet of beauty's queen,
He pleads loves' fond requests.
A sigh,,a blast, her heart is his!
-Ah! happiness supreme !
Hi3 hopes are crowned, the goal is wor,
Fulfilled his wildest dream,
But oh! again war's horrid'din
Resounds -hroughout his land,
And in the battles firm array,
How proudly he does stand !
A shout, a charge 'mid cannon's roar'
And shrieks of bursting shelt, -
The day was ours-but sad the cost -
ror here our Drayton fell!
As hero lived-as one he died,
And fell with g lory.crowned
Fond sisters weep a brother slain,
Heart breaking sobs rgsou4d.
A father's soul with grief is wrung,
Bis darling boy'is gone
The pride of fife death stole-away
And lefi their hearts forlorn.
- And she, who gained his youthful love,
And crowned his manhood's joy,
The keenest pangs the wretched feel
Arg her's without ailor.
She loves not life unshared with him
To whom she gave her trust,
But shrouds.b er soul in darkest gloom
Till dust returns to dust.
Weep not dear on'es, 'twas God's decree -
That tore him from thine arms,
To dwell serene in spirit worlds. '
-Where come not deati's alarms.
- Again ye'll meet to prrt no mbro
No more! a-b! bTsinpcomne !

And joy shail be your theme.

General Orders No. 3.
THE following Circular is Itesby, published
for the information and guidance of citizena.o
Newberry and vicinity :
Charleston, S. C., April 25, 1865.
CtrciZar to Planters, etc. ' -
N UNEROUS applications have been made to
me for information as to ,tie policy to be
adopted on the subject. of labor.
All. can understand the importance of making
a crop the present seaeson, and foresee the inisery
and suffering consequent upon its failure.
In the present unsettled state of the country, *
and,in the absence of any recogrnized State an
thoritiQs, I find it my dut' to assume control of
the pt;ntations near the military liaes, and order'.
as follows; -
1st. The planters, after taking the oath of. a.
legiance, will assemble the freedmet (lately their'
stives) and inform them that they.ar free, and
that hentcfor;h they thust depend upon their own
exertions for their support. . -
2d. Equitable contracts in writing T It be mada
by the ossners of the land with the freedmen for
the cultivation of-the land during -the presedt
year. - -
Payment will be made in kind, and the allow
ance of one half the crop is recommended aS'fair
-compensation for the labor, the landlord, fur
nishing suhsistence until the grop is gatheted.
These contracts will be submitted to the near- *
est military or- naval commander for. apprdval
and endorseinent. . - . '
Wien the above requirements are compHed
with, protection will oe granted as far as iiilitr
ry necessity will allow ; but .where no contract
is made, the crop raised will be considered for
feted for the use of the laborera. Sbotild .the
owners refusd to cultivate it, they will,be consid
ered as endeavot'ing to eiubarrass the Govern-.
ment, and tbe -land will be used" for colonies- of
