"Jack" brings the products of other c-)imrirs
to y u, and carries them through the storm
and tempest. It does stein to inn that
gratitude should induce you at least to kivc nn I
do oiaetliiiig fur "Jack," since ho his done so
much tor you. Now, ladies and g- uiieiui-u, do
net if h to enter into this euliject si filly as to
branch off upon this war; for to dwell upon a
subject ot that kind would take up the whole of
ike eveaing. All 1 will say Is, that I desire that
you will all go in With heart aud sjtil into this
work which the Port Kociety has been instituted
for, because it Is simply the gratitude wh eh is
due from one individual to auothur. L'tus re
member the Muster's words, that tho Imrvest is
plentiful, but where are the husbandmen ?
Vvithouteven followinghis instructious, tho sim
ple gratitude which is due flora man to man of
jiood works done to you by him calls for a re
ward in your doing something for " Jack."
Therefore, 1 ask you to give your assistance to
the Port Society; and would have wished that
niy lamented friend Admiral Footo wero on tbe
platform to solicit your favors more earnestly
than I can. I beg that you will pardon ntu for
peaking to lot ', for I am not a speaker.

General l-'oster's expedition to destroy tho rail
road running from Savnnnnh to Charleston.
There wire seven nunboats in tho expedition,
and soon after reaching a proper position, lire
wiiF opi ned.
A force was landed, nnd an action commenced,
the full particulars of which have not readied us.
I'.y evening tho Pocotnilgo bridgo was reached
and destroyed. Our troops were thou intrenched
lor such future operations as might bo nee leal.
Tbe Ibnrgal came down to Port Royal the

concerning tne lo.-srs on eithiraide; but of tlia
success of the grand object of the expedition thoio
n:n be doubt.
( I. ir info' mailt spi.iks lathe highest terms of
the ecirgy and activity of Admiral Dabigr -n, in
organising and directing tne movements uf tbe
naval brigade, in this important all'air.
When tho Ihmnjal left to como down Droud
river on the ev ulng of the 6th, shells wero seen
Hying ntul exploring, indicating that our forces
were determined to drive tbo enemy out of any
position they might have taken after being
driven from the brlilgo.
General Foster' scouts had communicated
with (leiKral Sherman's forces, which wero
marching on Savannah. The belief was that
Slieimun would bo in Savannah on Wednesday
next, tho 1 Ith Inst.
The Pocottiligo IJrUlgo is about 35 miles from
Suvnnnah. It being destroyed, and Sherman
having cut the other railroad communications,
Savannah cannot bo relieved by relnl'orcctuculs
Irom uny pr int north of It. The Donegtl
