I »out the .iiie' time, Forrest captured
*' r entire biigade, with a train of j

! r what would be altogether un
-' ble upon the supposition that
bold the truth--namely :
of their pursuit. It is aY
imp sible that an army which

hundred prisoners on the field of
ten thousand more in the pur
i! at the curl of ten days, find
B MI fifteen iroi«*s from that routed
1 "*sorgani_ed army, having pursued
1•« rti\v of live miles a 'lay. l>ut if,
| in the interval, the pursuing army had
itself met with a severe reverse, the
whole thing is intelligible enough.
We think it plain enough that our
I people had allowed themselves to give
way to a panic much too easily that
there is no real cause for alarm with re
gard to the safety of Hood's army, and
that there is far less for the despondency,
approaching despair, which has come ,
| over the minds of many who are not
j wont to be cither despondent or despe
j rate. Cur people must come out of this
cloud. They must, as before, bend up
all their energies t<> encounter the /rials
yet before thctn. They should recollect
that they have already encountered a
force such as-the Yankees will never ho
able to bring Again into Die held, and
that they have encountered it success-*
fully. If they would resolve to receive,
hereafter, Yankee statements—gotten up
always for effect—with more grains of
allowance than heretofore, k would be 1
j tmito as well for their own peace of mind,
| and infinitely better for the public cause.
The >'• n Unci t.-f yesterday makes cer
tain suggestions with regard to tlie rail- j
! roads south of«us, to which we invite the
earnest attention of the authorities. It
proposes to put in tho link between Co
lumbia and Augusta, which is only se
venty-five nifrs. The railroad now j
runs from Augusta to Aiken's,-almost
in a direct line to Columbia. Taking
Aiken's as a point of departure, Colum
bia and Augusta might be joined by a
railroad sixty miles long. At Branch -
ville, on the Wilmington and Augusta
line, the road deflects to the coast A
line from Kingsville to Augusta would
be much safer. These roaus completed,
from Columbi: there would be a choice
;of roads, either by Wilmington or by
Charlotte and Danville, on the upper
route, llighcr up, Abbeville is in rail
road connection with Columbia, and
Athens (which is opposite to it. in Geor
gia,) is in connection with tlie Augusta
and Atlanta railroad. Tho &-*/**H*£_frre
these points arc not more than sixty-five
miles apai t.
There is no possibility of exaggerating
the importance of these connections. —
The only question is with regard to the
possibility of obtaining the material for
the work. The Sentinel gets over this
difficulty. Large portions ol' the rail
roads leading to Savannah are now use
less to us. If left as they are, they will
become useful to the enemy. It is
surely good policy to dismantle them at
once, and make use of them in eon -
structing roads for our own purposes.—
We hope the attention of the authori
ties will be turned to this subject.
Governor Magrath, of South Carolina,
has issued the following proclamation ro
the people of that State, in view of the
coming invasion of Sherman:

The Legislature of South Carolina has
declared that ali free white men between
the .ages of sixteen and sixty years, not
already in the Confederate service, shall
be liable to militia service.
The city of Charleston requires for its
defence all within its limits who are be

the defence of our homes. It cannot he

ling to defend that State whose laws pro
tect them; that rty by which they are
All will come forth; all must come
forth. The Dee proffer of service is what
the State desires. The service not prof
fered will be demanded,
' Officers charged with the organization
of this force will, as much.as possible,
reconcile the service with the employ
ments in business or labor of those who
are ready to perform it. They who
promptly respond to the call of the
Slate are entitled to, and will receive
from it, a careful consideration of all that
affects their welfare.
Vacancies in all organizations in the
city of Charleston will he tilled without
delay by appointment. The most active
means adopted to complete all enroll
ments and perfect every organization.
Arrest and punishment, as provieled
by law, will he only resorted tsi when
indispensably necessary. It is hope*d-that
in no-case will*4t be necessary to resort
to cither.
The enrollment and organization of
regiments, battalions or independent
companion will he reported to the adju
tant and inspector-general. Officers will
exercise all X\i& authority with which
they are invested.to maintain the re
spcct tluo to the law of the State which

those who live within its limits and un

In this service thcro are no exemp

der special circumstances. ('ertilioates
of disability, or other causes-,- in conse
quence of which exemptions have been
hitherto granted, will not he regarded

service is what no one will ask who is
true to tho State. If there are any not

A Catholic Priest** on tub Yank_h
Presidential Election. —The Dublin
(Ireland) Nation publishes the following
letter from a Catholic priest at Orange,'
New Jersey, explaining to his country
men in Ireland how the Presidential elec
tion was worked. The following is an
extract from the letter:
Lincoln being a Republican and Abo
litionist, and McCleUan being a Demo
crat, and the people being tired and dis
gusted with the war to a state of nause
ousoess, Lincoln saw that Democracy
would rise up in its majesty and defeat
him. What did he doY ila set his
agents to work, and there wa*i not a city, I
town, hamlet or village in the Northern i
and Western States but were bribed
with thousands and thousands of green- i
backs to secure his re-election. Green- i
backs arc tho paper dollars that are cur
rent now. They have ceased to count
thera at Washington. They weigh them

that the Southerners have earned and

The End of a "Foreiom" Bat
talion". — Brooks's battalion of Yankee
prisoners, who took the oath and entered
the Confederate service, fias "goneup."
The Columbia South Carolinian gives
the following account of their conduct,
which may serve as v. lesson for the fu
Four of tho six companies constituting
the battalion were sent forward, under
acting Lieutenant-Colonel J. Hampden
Brooks—the companies commanded re
spectively by First Lieutenant Vincent F.
Martin, Second Lieutenant John C. Mi

was wounded. They were generally
steady on duty. On or about the lath
instant, when encamped within about
seven hundred yards of the enemy's
outposts, Sherman sent a secret emissary,
promising amnesty if they immediately
joined him, and great severity if they
djd not, and they should fall into his
hands. Tho battalion, with a few ex
ceptions, immediately decided upon going
over to tho enemy and upon capturing
or, if necessary, killing their officers. —
This, which was to be done at a con
certed signal, was discovered in time.—
Seven of their number were shot ou tho
spot, antl the 11 main-let* have boon re
manded to the Federal prison.

Tub "Fool Nto-CR* 1 ani» Tn_i-
Fkiends.—During the recent raid on
this place many negroes, heretofore con
sidered faithful servants —men, women
and children—accompanied the Yankees
on their return. In great glee they
mounted the ntolen horses and mules of
their owners, and, loaded with plunder,
took their departure for the land of Abe
Lincoln's rule. The vision of the soft
rolling carriage, line dress, luxuriant
eating, freedom and equality with their
liberators, received the first rude shock
but a few miles from town, when they
were compelled to dismount and truoge
through the mud. Fatigued, hungry and
cold, they stiived might and main to
keep up with the apostles of liberty —
fear of recapture by indignant masters
stimulating their fast-fading dream of
ease and idleness. The weather became
bitter cold, and tho negroes suffered ter
ribly. The first to succumb were their
children, being deserted by their brutish
mothers to perish on the wayside. We
hear ot one woman who, tired of iter
burden, threw her infant, not a month
old, in the wayside thicket and left it.—
We aro informed that twenty-two of
these Abe Lincoln milestones have been
found frozen to death on the roads tra
veled by the Yankee;' on their return —
mostly children.-- BraakhatsiM (JtUait*
sippi) Tc,tcjti>2>h.
OoMiNu Back.—Many citizens of
Western North Carolina, who went off
to the enemy a year or two since, have
voluntarily returned and given pledges
for their future loyalty and good con
duct. Sumo of them, we learn, express
themselves very emphatically as satisfied
with their experience in the Yankee ser
vice. It is not, they say, the feast to
which they were invited, and henceforth
they are with the Confederacy, for weal
or woe." —_!-/■<.• -UU (iV. C.) NeitM, -«ti.
Gold and Gkseki'ac-S. —A corres
pondent of the Mobile Register, writing
from North Mississippi, says:
Do your readers»know that gold is
no longer a u legal tender" in the United
States V Ii is just so. You cannot buy
a thing for gold. A merchant dare not
receive it, as to do so would subject him
to fine and imprisonment. All tlie
specie transactions in Memphis have to
be done "on the sly." " Greenbacks "
are the only circulating medium, and it
takes about three times as much of them
to purchase an article now as it did a
year ago. The fact is, although they are
" legal tender," the people North aro be
coming afraid of them. They aro too
plentiful.np there, and pay day is too far
oil and uncertain in the dim distance. —
Very few blockade goods are coming cub
Yankee money has " played out" on our
side of the lines, and no on©* can take
cotton in, and I doubt if they care to do
so, even if they could, at the present
discouraging prices there.'
