The opinion was formerly •xpreawd by many ta
tha Sent- that w* had uot yet encountered th*
most formidable flghtlng men of tto ttortb. but
that wton tbey had .xhauared their -ritrafY"-

com* dowa upon v. with their '".olid nraa and
crate na to the consistency of jelly. -
We coafres that w* always entertained doubts of
tto truth of this proposition. We rearambored that
Washington had a grtevous time In stinting up these
"aolld area" la the days of tto Revolution. They
were co "eoltd" that no moral or physical Urer
••♦med capable of moving them We have seen
the original of an old revolutionary document, In
which tto writer, a recruiting officer, complaine
meet bitterly tbat, neither for love nor money could
he induce any one tn Mossachosetis lo enlist lv the
war. Tto truth to, there is a great deal of gammon
and huffibPf about the "solid men," at the best.
What to meant by tbe term, to, we suppose, men of
propdrty • men who are solid In worldly goods and
chattel*, aad ws tften atso-iate physical solidity
with tto remu terms; that is.arotund i-arporatiou and
Shrek* swelling with fainera, and those customary
Insignia of solidity, a gold bended cane, gold watch
ebain and seals, and a substantial ..ir, a. of one to
whom a part of the globe belongs, and who looks
upon all men not owning property nt interloper* oa
tto demesne* of tto Creator, and who considers a
plague, pestlleneo, or war, by which they may to

y*t each of thorn has proved a mere shell, and a
shell full of corruption aud death. And no better
specimens can anywhere be found af the "solid
nu-n" of the North. They are just as corrupt and
depraved as ihe uusolid men, and a thousand times
BKtre hypocritical. The only difference between
them and the "riffraff"' is, that the latter "wear
their hearts upon their sleeves,'" and, contrary to
the general Impression, they or* more reliable
for fighting purpose*- The philosophy of this i*
plain enough Th* "riff-raff," a* they are called, ore
accustomed to hard work and hard knock* from
their cradles; they feel tbat this world is no world
for them, and that, in giving It up, they have not
much to lose. Bat fine houses, productive farms
beautiful gardens—as Dr. Johnson said to Garrick,
"these are tbe things that moke a death bed terri
ble ;" these ore the things that enervate men, make
them cling to life as ihe greatest of advantages, ren
der the "solid men" the least formiJable of alj
combatant* who con be coiled into the field, and
cease them to skedaddle to Canada and Europe
for fear of being drafted iuto tho militia.
The only manner in which the "solid men" o»
tbe North are now formidable is to their capital.—
They have spent so much money in carrying on
this war that they will make another desperate
throw to save that which has already gone. Tbey
will not come themselves under any circtimst_nce p
but, either by draft or enormous bounties, they will
Bate*, the 300,000 additional troopa required by Liv"
sate, There will be a universal sifting of the whole j
North and of all mankind for more "riffraff" to '
make np tbe three hundred thonsaud As for
themselves, _00,000 "solid men' of the Nonh
would vanish liks the most unsubstantial shad
ows before "Stonewall Jacksoa" and thirty thousand
Confederates. Bat new is the time for the South to
strike. Let her BBt wait anotho: hour for the ac"
cumulatiou ef more "riff-raff"." Let not the enemy
be permitted to advanoe another foot. An instant
movement upcu the Yankees, and tha solid men of
the North and their solid country wilt vanish liko
the hazeless fabric of a vision.

A Caution.
It seems to be quite evident that tho Yankee Gov ■
ernment, iv spite of tbe monster war meeting
which it Is instigating throughout the North, will
not bo able to recruit its ranks by menus of volun
teers. It is also evident that, ln the event of full.
ure, it will resort to a draft, and that a draft l* to
tto last degree distasteful to the Northern people
These facts having become very plum, are colcula.
ted to make on Impression npou our people, which,
if indulged, may prove very prejudicial to our cause.
Already we observe that many persons are flatter-'
Ing themselves that tto required number of troops
(100,000) cannot to raised. This is a mistake which
if lt should be made likewise by the Government,
nay prove a very serious one.
g*Tbe required number of men will be raised, be
yond all question, if not In one way, yet tn an
other. They will be forthcoming, too, at the short
est possible notice. If we sit down and told our
arms, they will dispel our dream of security before
we an prepared to resist them by a shock so rude
that it will cost us a long time to repair the damage
it will occasion. Lit as make ourselves masters of j
tto crisis by anticipating it, and preparing to face j
it when lt shall have arrived. Let v* not permit ■
tt to overtake v* like a surprise. Remember Ma- '
nat-lff. and the evil consequences that flowed from i
that gnat, unimproved and. because unimproved j
almost fatal victory. We have to deal witb ou >
enemy of vast resources both ln men and means. !
and be will spare neither blood nor money iv hi* ,
attempt to reduce us to subjection. His exertions
are stimulated by a hatred so deep and so diaholi
eal that it will stop short of nothing which in-iy
promise to assist ln Its gratlf.cf.tion.
Our prospects at present are bright and encotnr '
aging. Tbey can only become overcast by our
Sara folly or negligence. Yet, though we exercise
the utmost prudence and foresight—though we ne
glect no opportunity, and forego no advantage— '
though we pursue every success to tho utmost ex
tsnt of tbe advaatagea which can be extracted
teste it—though cur energy in tbe Cabinet be i
worthy tto courage ot our soldiers in the field—we !
must still expect a protracted and arduous strug- '
gto—a struggle that may drag on for years, and '
that will tanatnat* only when our foe tball have j
wasted all hto reaourrea lv bis frantic effort* to i
subdu* as, sad shall hays become ready to relin- j
qotoh th* contest solely because to is too exhaust- j
ed to eon tin ne it. It to proper for us to look on. !
attaatloß folly in tb* face. We mutt not flatter i
onnelrw with the delusion that our trials are j
nearly at an and. Than to nut the slightest reason j
to fear that ws shall ever be subjugated, but "the j
pries of freedom to eternal vigilance."

•U. fi«W " also alleged. Hereto a sample .-
The advancing of our batteries 1,000 yards with
on.', adequate support, and the unfortuuate mlstak
i Ing of a rebel regiment for the batteries' support,
, was the fourth cause of that disaster. If these guns
had not been captured and turned upon our own
troops, the strong probabilities are that we should
1 i at least have held the field, and that no panic would
, have ensued,
Capt. Griffin, of Griffin's Battery, who bad been
' placed in (his advanced position, soys :
"Aft( r I had beeu Bare about five minutes a regi
| ment of Confederates got over a fence on my front,
and some officer—l took It to be tbe Colonel—step
' ped out in front of the regiment, between lt mid
my battery, and commenced making a speech to
them. 1 gave the co f inuiaud to oue of my officer* to
tire upon tuetu. He toodtd the cannon witb canis
i ter, and was just ready to tire on them when Major
i Harry rode up to me, and said, 'Captain, don't tire
| there*! these ore your battery support." I said,
I 'They are Confederates; as cortaln aa the world
• j they are Ci uf.'deiatca.' Ito repli.fl, "1 know they
i i are your battery support." I sprang to my pieces,
; and told my officer not to fire tbere. He threw
''■ down the can in ton and commenced tiring again in
j the former direeaon. After the officer who bod
■ been talking to the regiment had got through he
• faced ttoa to tha left onl marched them about fifty
yard* to the wood*, ttoa faced them to the right
■ ; sad marched them about forty yards towards a**,
j and then opt nt-.i tire upon us, ond that was the last
' of v*.
1 I "Before this occurred 1 storied to limber up my

I : were the Confederates. But, as the Chief of Artii-
I j lery told me that they were my battery support, 1
, vvu* afraid to tire upon them. Major Barry said, '1
1 ; know it is the battery aappertj it Is the regiment
■ I taken there by Col. .' 'Very well.' said I,
[ and gave tho order to (Ire in nnother direction with
the battery; but 1 sever delivered the the —for we
were oil cut down.''
1 Col- Averill soys :
"In going down the hill, after a general break, I
saw an officer galloping along to front of me. 1 re
cognized Maj. Barry, and cried out, 'Halloa, Barry,
is that you f He said 'Yes.' 1 said, "Where i»
Griffin t He said, T am afraid he is killed.' 1
said, 'That battery Is lost. lam afraid we are goue
up," or somo remark to that effect. Harry then
said, T urn to blame for the loss of that battery; 1
pu: Griffin there myself.' "
The Norfolk iVa.) Union (Yankee) gives an at*
count of a "'brntal outrage" committed in that city
by a Secessionist on a newsboy. It says :
A little boy selling Northern papers accosted a
young man upou ihe street with a view e,f dispos
ing ol bis war l -*, when he was rebuffed in a most
brutal manner. The father of the lad being present,
remonstrated against the treatment of his son, when
the young Secessionist drew a knife on him. There
was some excitement, but no damage was done by
the incipient assassin.
Subsequently be wa* arrested by the Provost
Guard aud placed in prison. Several gentlemen ot
respectability called upon Provost Marshal Cbrist
aaasa and urged the release of the culprit on bail, '
offering any amount, and claiming consideration for
the offender on tho score of the respectability of
his connections. Capt. Chtiateassß, to his praise be
llt said, declined te aeeede to the request. With v
' tirume_i which does him infinite honor, that able of
l tieer intimated to the friend* of the young man
j that he deemed the position of the individual —his
' respectability of relatives and intelligence—an ag
! grovatton of the crime, and to would not accept
The offender, we are informed, is a nephew of
Chief Justice Taney, aud but recently held a cotu
mis.ion in the rebel army, and is at large upon pa
role. We hope an example will be made in this
case.. It is quite time that the rampant Beeesaioa
ism of Norfolk received a salutary check, aud a
fairer opportunity was never offered to give a
wholesome lesson to these who are inclined to overt
acts. Let the respectably connected! violator of
the peace suffer fuliy the penalty of bis offeuce; a
regard for peace and good order demands that it
should be so. And we think it quitev reasonable
hero to observe that it may be welt to Inquire how
far the Secessionists here are encouraged to carry
j cr.uctak'd weapons.
The correspondent of the Now York Herald, who,
I awi-ok or two since, highly praised the humanity
j of the Confederate Surgeons to the enemy's wound
ed, now say*:
Their own wounded were provided with ude
| quate accommodations in the houses and pie a.tint
I hospital* of Bichmond, -while our* were not taken
Ito the city till Tuesday week after the ba:tle —
Many of them had in the meantime died of their
i wouuds, and most of tho.e were interred uear the
j station. At length our wounded were transferred
I to llichmond, and regarded not as wounded, but as
; prisoner* of war. They were placed in various
[ warehouses, prisons where the air was impure and
the ventilation shocking. No surgeon* were pro-
I vided for them, save the siuglo surgeon in charge of
each hospital, and these took no means to relieve
our sufferers, save iv a single cose, when a rebel
surgeon produced a rn*ty saw and amputated it leg.
The patient afterward* died. Of all the rebel la
dies tbat were co officious in attending to their own
maimed, not one appeared among the wounded oud
I dying strangers that crowded their city.
A letter dated Front Royal, Va, July 12th, pub
| lished in the Philadelphia Inquirer, says of South"
I em female spies :
i These women are the most accomplished in
; Southern circles. They are introduced uuder BB*
; sumed MOWS to our officers, so a* to avoid detec-
I tion or recognition from those to whom their names
jwe known, but their person* unknown. By such
. means they are enabled to frequently meet coin
| binedly, but ut separate rimes, tto officers of every
j regiment iv c. whole column, and by simple compi
' la'km and comparatlon of notes, they achieve a
full knowledge of the strength of onr entire force.
: Hjs modern warfare a parallel to the use of
sit. li r.'-conipli-hments for such a purpose 1—
j Tho chief of thtue spies to the celebrated
. Belle Boyd. Her acknowledged superiority
I for machination and intrigue has given her
I the leadership and control of the female spies in
j tbe Valley of Virginia. She la a resident of Mar
I tin-burg, when ut home, aud has a pious, good old \
'■ in tin r, who regrets a* much as any one can
' the violent aud eccentric course, of her daughter
, since thia rebellion ho* broken out. Belle has pass- i
;ed ibe freshness of youth. She to a sharp-featured, j
■ black-eyed woman of 25, or care and intrigue have
i given her that appearance. Last summer, whilst
! Pattereon'* army lay at Mortlnsburg, ihe wore a
i revolver in her belt, and was courted and flattered
iby every Lieutenant and Captain in the service
| wbo ever saw her. There was a kind of Di Vernon
| dash about her, a smart pertness, a quickuess of
i teiort, mid utter abandon of manner and bearing
wbich were attractive from their very romantic uu
! wontedness.
Tbe father of this resolute black eyed vixen is a j
, paymaster in the Southern army, and formerly held '
j a place at Washington uuder our Government She j
{ bo* undergone all that society, position and educa- I
i tion can oonfer upon a uiiud suited to the days of j
| Charles the Second, or L.vis tbe Fourteenth—a
\ mind such as Mazarin or Richelieu would have do- j
\ lighted to employ from its kiuded aflluities.
Well, this woman 1 saw practicing tor arts upon
I our young lieutenants and inexperienced captains, |
■ and In each case 1 uniformly felt it my duty to coll I
' them aside oud worn tbem or whom she was To
, one she had been introduced as Miss Anderson, to j
another as Miss Faulkner, aud so to tbe end of the j
I chapter. She to so well known now that she can j

j An affair of honor was to come off at Arlington
i House to day, but was frustrated hy tho vigilance
lof the police. It appears that Capt C. F. Mackeu
■ zle, of her Britanic Majesty's royal army, white at
I table at Willard's a f*w night* ago, asserted the
j superiority or English over American arms. Capt.
Whittemore, of the U. S. volunteers, who was pre-
I sent, expressed his proference for the Springfield
j ovor the Eutleld rifle. The Engliih Captain called
j him a fool, and instantly had a cup of tea thrown
Ito bis face by Capt. Whittemore. The result was a
' challenge from Captain Mackenzie, which was as*
: ceptcd by Copt. Whittemore, after having resigned
; hi* commission. After the acceptance, it is said,
' the English Captain desired to back out, but was
■ Informed that he aaaat either fight or take a public
i horsewhipping. The meeting was arranged for this
1 afternoon, in the vicinity of the Arlington Houso,
but the police were at bond, and succeeded iv ar
resting Capt. Mackenzie. His opponent escaped
! from tho field as tho driver of a pie wagon standing
; near at haul, aud has not yet beeu arrested.
We find the following in the Cincinnati Cummer.
I eial, ot Monday:
The train which left Covington for Cyntblana
yesterday morning, with Copt. William Glass and
Lis company, and their Tl pounder aboard, reached
tto town between 10 and 11 o'clock. There were
reports at Cy utbiana tbat Morgan was advancing
ou the place. Tbe trala waited uutil four o'clock In
the afternoon, when the rebels made an attack. —
The engineer ran off the train in tto midst of a
shower of bullets.
We have conversed witb two intelligent gentlc
j men who were on the train —one a resident of one
•of the iuteriur towns of Kentucky, the other tbe
| ineaseuger of the Adams Express Company.
, The Kentucky gentleman says there were seve
ral hundred men on hand to defend Cyntbtona, but
' Uiey were not well organised or armed. Tbo rebels
j first mode their appaorunce on the river side of the
town, about two hundred strong. They opened
| fire briskly, and Capt Glass, with bis gun, moved
I up to open on them, when lt was discovered that
j their demonstration was a feiut, and that the real
j attack wa* to be mode by tbe main body of ibe
i rebels ou the opposite side of the town. At this
j moment the train left. As lt was going off our in
; formaut saw Captain Glass, with his gun, going at
full speed to repel the main attack. - There had
been a rumor circulated on tto train before this by
{ some badly frightened boys, that Capt. Glass was
> killed. Of course it was iuoorrect, as onr iufor
i urant saw him doing bis duty after tha story of his
| death was circulated.
The rebels fired hotly on the train, as many as
{ fifteen balls striking It, Tto fire was returned
I from some muskets aboard, probably without ef
-1 feet Tbe firing of the rebels was principally at
! tbe engineer, who stood at his post, like a true
| man, and fortunately escaped without a scratch. A
i boy on the train had tto visor or bis cap cut off by
{ a boll. No one was injured. Four Kentucky la
dies were aboard. Tbey bore themselves bravely,
; being not a bit more frightened than tto rest. Tbey
i sat upon tto floor of ttie cars, and oushlons were
i placed against the side of the oar for their protec-
I tion.
Our Informant says the rebels seemed making tto
■ attack systematically and in pretty good order.
1 The detachment of them that appeared Were on
; foot. The uiain body was reported on horseback.
The musio of Capt. Glass's 12 pounder was heard
; very distinctly for some time by all parsons on the
train, showing that a tight was pienresaing. The
gun aeemod to be fired with unusual rapidity. Ths

Increase ~; IW*
Decrease as7,o_*! —
The decrease of specie Is toss ihau ws* generally
expected, in view of the recent heavy shipment* of
ooin. Very little or none of the gold exported to
Europe, and shipped to Tennessee, Kentucky, and
Louisiana, for the purchoso of cotton aud sugar,
has come out of the banks. Tho increase to de
posit* Is greater than was anticipated. Money is
again flowing hither from the country for employ
ment, and unlesa speculation of some kind or other
con be started, the banks will experience difficulty
in employing their means. The loans Increased
lost week only half as much aa the deposits.
Money was abundant to-day at 3 per cent, and
we hear ol loans on call below that figure. Mer
cantile paper is quoted at 537 per cent. Cento
eateS of public indebtedness are selling at 17, hav
tog sympathized with United States sixes. De- |
mond notes are not very active at 108. ,
Exchange rose thi* morning to 133, but was nf
tarwarda quoted at ISlittuS, Gold roso nt oue I
timo to 120 i, but afterwards sold freely at 190, aud
In the afternoon at I Iff; it closed late in the after- j
noon at about 1191 bid. Iv alluding to this morn- |
ing's article to the par of exchange, we meant of
course sterling bills at I»j|, not at 100. as some per
sons to tbe Street seem to have imagined. It is not {
at all likely that wo shall ever see gold at 115 and
exchange at lpO ; but it is by no mean* unlikely, to !
the opinion of person* competent to judge, that we !
may tbis fall see gold selling at 115 and bills at 110, j
iv which case gold would flow In this direction
from Europe. !
Tbe stock market took an upward start this morn- I
lug, and there was quite an active Inquiry for some '
ef the speculative railway shares. At tbe Bret
board New York Central rose ij. Erie J, Erie pie

Government stocks remained where they stood on j
Saturday afternoon. It bos transpired that the j
heavy sales of Government* which have been made J
within the past week were for account of partie*
who allowed themselves to be frightened by threat*
uttered by a few rural Congressmen on their passage
through this city, to the effect that Congress would
repeal the provision of the law requiring ihe interest
on Government Btocks to be paid ln coin. It was
O* atrocious to make such a threat as it was silly to
believe in its fulfilment. The public faith of "the
country is pledged for tbe payment of the Interest
on all the public debt in coin ; Congress i« just as
likely to repudiate the whole debt as to recede from
thi* solemn provision of the law. After the board
there waa a reaction of iaj per cent in the leading
stocks. At the second board a part of tbe reaction
was recovered, and tbe market closed steady, the
following beiug the last quotations: United States

Lifk in London.—At the Olympic there has
been playing, incog., for »omo tbrco months, a lady
of rank, under tho Beaaaa dv theatre of "Mrs. Mc

was not a little surprised to recognize, In the grand
drama of The World of Fashion, my old Mead,
Lady —, . It seem* tbat, having lost h>-r hus
band, Sir Charles , and with him several ttoa*
saud a year, she experienced the chill of a "-averse
of fortune," which is nowhere more biting and bit
ter than in London, where very old blood, or a very
long purse, is a atos qua 808 to respectability. Lady

several young si.ters to educate, to quote her own
words, "resorted to the s'.af-o instead of doing
worse," mid soon gives the cold world tor beautiful
"cold shoulder"' aud snaps her lingers ia the face of

one day go to America to make the tour of the

Gray Hairs.—Eta Mayor Smith, of Manchester,
X. U., one ot the American Commissioner* IBttie
World's Fair to London,in one of hi* letters adverts to
some peculiarities of the English people. Old build

thou-iand* of youngish men powder tht ir hair to
make It appear gray. Ladies with gray and white
hair take especial pain* to display it.
Negro Valor.—A Havana correspondent men
tlons that a regiment of negroe* from Martinique,
which had been employed by the French to aid in
the Mexican campaign, were lauded at Vera Cn,.,
to pursue the troops cf Carva'pil, but instead of
doing this, they considered discretion the better
part of valor, and ran off. This Is what might
have been expected. Negroes, for lighting purpose*
are rareiy worth ihelr clothing.

yesterday to remove from Belle Isle to Libby's

such a hard foeliug that though duly labelled as a
Pennsylvania Colonel, they were induced to ex
hume the body, which proved to be a splendid 21-
--i pounder brass howitzer. Several other "Colou«i»"
of a similar kind were afterwards dug up. The
i partie* engaged in the search also found a metalio
burial case, bat on removing toe plate the body of
a Federal Lieutenant appeared, and It wa* de

j Enjoying Themstlots. — The Yankee prisoners
now encamped on Belle Isle seem determined to
"make the most of a bad job," and to enjoy them
j selves iv the best fashion possible. The majority of
j them are quartered in tents, and between and
j among tbeae, in various places, they have dug |
I wells, either for tbe purpose of obtaining better j
j water than is afforded by the muddy bed of the
liver or to bathe in. They are permitted to go in j
| the river by the dozen, and there is hardly* moment
ta the day that squads are not vicing with the rocks i
In disturbing the equanimity of tto "noble James." j
The island is approached by a boat starting from |
near the Tredegar Foundry; bnt few persons ore I
allowed access, save those called thither by official '
I duties.
Col. Williams, of tho Ist Virginia regiment, who
was wounded In the battle at Williamsburg, and
fell into tbo bands of the enemy because of our
inability to remove him, was at the Hygeia Hotel
on the 18th instant, and a few day* thereafter was
sent by the Yankees, together with some other of ,
our wounded officers, to the Rip Raps—o placo j
whose torrid horror* have been sufficiently venti- I

LIFUT. HOPE 11. ROBERTS—At a meeting of
Company C, 39th Georgia regiment, July 18th,
! Lieut. 8. G. Johmiou, Sergeant C. E. Cornier Dr
! W. G. Roberts, 8. R. Dalfey, and W. U. A. Daven
port, were appointed o committee to express the
deep regret which, as a company, we all feel ct the
j death of our First Lieutenant, lioi'K H BOUSTB,
j which occurred aa the ib'th of June, on the hard
. fought battlefield near Richmond. We feel ihat in
I his death we have lost a faithful Jrieud and an of
! ticer of tine attainments and great promise. Though
j but twenty years of age, be had fu.iy demonstrated
i That be possessed in a high degree those qualifies
which form tho noble man, and point to coutiu-
I steely to a career successful, honorable, and bril
i liaut. His mind was quick, comprehensive, aud I
; deep, and the evidence* of a generous aud kind '
] heart were ever apparent He possessed, al*o, rure \
I social qualities—was hind and affable to all—and j
, hence we are not surprised that our young friend
was a universal favorite). The teachings af a pious
father were early regarded, aad his UtastotSßl walk
aa v member of the ehareb, for several years past, !
was alike pleasing to that father and numerous \
relative* and fiieud*. Aa at home, BO ta the army.
Wa speak with particular pleasure of tto example
toft by our gifted young friend ami officer. He re- j
ruainetl Bashatoa and unmoved by the many temp*
ta) ions incident to camp lifo While We saw Lim I
j the constant recipient of the most Haltering atten
-1 tion* from all, and CHpecinlly .Loan of superior I
rr.nk, with pleasure we beheld tea ease with whteh I
bin great mind enabled bim to escape the baneful I
iiifluaices so often resulting from such appeals to
tto vanity ef one so young. Our lota we deeply
feel- but, oh I the p,t!:i the death of the *on aud I
brother must have caused at home. But to them j
we would say, he was the same good boy as when
; Lo left you ; and, though he died amid the booming
of cat-nog ami tl.o rsttls of musketry, surrounded j
by ail the homus of a hard fought b..ule field, with I
no friend present to catch his lata whispered mi.-g J
i sage to loved ones at home, knowing how he lived, '
; wo doubt not but that tto death scene of your be '
i loved Huf_ was calm aad psacefkl, sad that he i
j rests iv heaven. •

HENRY, Who area killed i.i tto bottle near Rich- !
mond, Va.. June -..d'.h, nblisf. gallantly leading the |
company in a charge upon tho enemy * batteries.
| Among tho long li.st of those whosa names will '
j be heid in grateful remembrance by all future gene-
I rations, none shines with more resplendent lustre !
j than tnat of the lamented subject of thi* notice. ]
When wo elect,d him Captain of the company !
I but tew of us really knew tto uioral worth sf the ' '
man we had selected. But time and acquaintance ! '
levealed his true character __ inferior to none in
every Irait which constitutes the Christian gentle- '
man. He commanded tto re-pect of oil who knew ! '
him by his easy and diguiiied deportment, his social j
qualities, aud hi. large supply of useful kuowledge. ,
Wbetber It was In tho natal camp, on the toilsome :
march, or upon tho field ef deadly strife, ho was '
j alike calm aud unruffled hy the many pi rplexitic* j '
j incident to camp lifo, or the dangers of the battle- j
field. At the battle of "Seven fines," be led hto ,
company in the thickest of the fiay, and wasoi-oug
tha last to retire from that ensanguined field. There j '
his cool self-possession excited the admiration of j
oil who witne—led him, as calm and unmoved he led
to the bloody charge*.
When the impetuous a.tault was made upon the j '
enemy* right, June -roth, hi* regiment formed a
portion of theaavance of the assaulting a'my.—
He fell in front of the enemy* redoubts, and hi* re
mains now slumber upon that hard-contested Seid.
Though ho Is dead, yet his memory will be cher-'
l*hed by grateful freemen for _g«s vet unborn.
In his death the B.irtow Invincible« have lost a
loved and efficient commander, the Confederacy a
j brave and gallant soldier, the Church on exemplary ,
member, and his family a kind husband and father.
We tender to his bereaved family and relative*
I the warmest sympathies oi our sorrowing hearts,
but would console thi m by the reflection that he i*
traw "where the wicked (■_•__> from troubling oud
the weary are ut rest "
