Ifff■?T^ * r POETRY. The June Month. The waning of the sweet May moon June's laughing face discloses, Her apron filled with butter-cups, Her bosom with red roses. The blossom and the bursting bud Are woven in her tresses, And every breeze that fans her cheek Comes laden with caresses. The birds all leave the open plains And seek the hazel covers— Some months were made for married life, But June was made for lovers. • Perhaps you've seen a little maid With lips like rare-ripe cherries; ' We're going down the meadow path This afternoon for berries. I'll tell yon more about the walk Before the'summer closes; So fill a enp to laughing June, And wreath its brim with roses! From the Lynchburg Virginian. Raids. We published an extract a few days since, from Northern sources, giving an account of the raid into Matthews and Gloucester coun ties. Since then we have met with a fuller account in Yankee papers, of the diabolism of the fiends who robbed our people in those unfortunate counties, and wantonly destroyed property of" every kind that fell in leir way. l( was- not enough that all the food was destroyed, but even the agricultural implements of the farmers were broken up, to prevent them from cultivating the soil fur ther. We invite attention to the following confes sion of their infamous conduct, hoping that it may have the effect to induce our people to organize into military companies everywhere, to give the ruffians such reception as they deserve to meet with. Those who refuse, un der these circumstances, to prepareto defend their homes and property from the ravages of such Goths and Vandals, should have no sym pathy, if a worse fate-than that which has be fallen our people in the Northern Neck, and Matthews and Gloucester, should overtake them. Let them read the accounts which these-cold blooded villains give of their de predations, and then resolve, if they have never done so before, to arm in defence of their altars and firesides. Yankee, accounts say : "The counties of Matthews and Gloucester were well scoured. All the warehouses con taining grain were sacked, tbe mills burned, and everything that could in any way aid the rebels were destroyed or captured. Three hundred horses, two hundred sheep, and a hundred mules, together with a large number (i' contrabands, were brought back by the raiders. "The rebel farmers were all taken by sur prise. They had not expected a demonstra tion of the kind. Not only were they made to surrender everything that could be of the least use to us, but they were compelled to be silent spectators of the destruction of their agricultural implements. Many persons will ask whether this was fair, and why did our forces destroy that for which they had no use? A little reflection will soon show. By crip pling ah enemy we weaken him. Men in an army mast have sustenance. If we deprive them of this, discontent will manifest itself anions them, and they will become mutinous. They will no longer have any regard for dis cipline. This weakens an adversary very materially." i 0 . Our Private Soldiers. No one can behold the achievements and the deportment of the private soldiers of ihe South without a feeling of admiration akin to reverence. They have performed deeds of valor which have startled the world, and which the leading journals of Europe have pronounced unsurpassed by the most heroic days of Oreece and Rome And yet they are as modest and unassuming, as unconscious of doing anything remarkable, as if they had never encountered an hour of peril ot a mo ment if privation. Whatever treatment they may sometimes receive from vulgar insolence, the humblest hero in the ranks of the South has a hold upon the hearts of the Southern people not surpassed by that of our most il lustrious officers, and not approached by that which is felt for mere embroidered officials, who have only entered the service to promote their own personal fortunes. The vast popu larity of the immortal Jackson arose from the fact that he was the impersonation of the Southern Soldier; that he so thoroughly em bodied the valor, the impetuosity, the self-de votion, and the humility of men in the ranks. Those qualities achieved his success, snd the officer who expects to wear his mantle must emulate his virtues, and model his own heart after tbe unselfish and heroic spirit of the pri vate soldier.— Lynchburg Republican. « ■»'. The Atlanta "Confederacy" says that a ne gro about 20 years old, the body servant of Colonel Skidd Harris, who was recently kill ed ia battle near Jackson, Miss., was with him at the time of the fight. After his master was wounded the boy dodged around among* the pickets and got hold of the Colonel's horse, and after crossing the enemy's lines two or three times, finally made bis escape, in company with a man who belonged to his | master's regiment,,came across the country, and both reached Atlanta safely, bringing tbe horse safely through. Sawney says he saw enough of the way the Yankees treat negroes to satisfy him that old Georgia is the be6t place for a darkey. -~~~ ♦ » ■ The Contrast. Ihe Richmond Sentinel states the fact that a great deal more money has been contribut ed to the families of tbe Fredericksburg re fugees and sufferers by the soldiers in the ar my, than by citizens at home. This is as complimentary to tl>e liberality and patriot ism of the gallant men who are sacrificing everything in the field for their country, as it is disgraceful to those who are # at their ease at home. Men who have made' their thou sands, and have escaped the perils of the bat tle, have not contributed as much a# those who have made nothing, and are fighting for their homes and firesides. All honor to the noble men who have thus shown that their hearts are as good as they are brave.—Lynch burg Republican. lj_________________|'________________g___gj_ll^^»W^ $35 REWARD STOLEN from my premises, about 12 miles northwest of Jefferson, Ashe county, N.

The subscriber offers to farmers throughout the country the EGYPTIAN CORN, which, up on trial, was found to ripen planted even the first of July. It is estimated,, from its very prolific qualities, to yield 201 bushels per acre, and weighs, by sealed measure, sixty-five pounds to the bushel. This Corn was produced from some procured direct from Mr. Jones, our Con sular Agent, directly on his leturn from Egypt. It needs no different cultuie from that of oth er varieties; and, in the south, two crops can be raised in one season on th« same ground. It grows in the form of a tree, snd twenty-two ears have grown upon one stalk, and will average from five to fifteen. For donestic use, it is un paralleled. When ground and properly bolted, it is equal in color and fineneis to wheaten flour. As a forage crop, by sowing in drills or broad cast, for early feed, there is 10 kind of corn so well adapted to milch cows, aad none that will yield half tbe value in stalks or corn. It can be successfully grown in any State. I can give the most satisfactory references that the Corn is, in every respect, what I repre sent it to be; and, further, I sm the only person throughout the country who las this variety of Corn. Having secured a quantity. I am now able to fill all orders for those desirous of test ing it.

An erroneous impression prevails that the transportation,of provisions is pro hibited over this railroad. Such is not the case. All supplies intended for private consumption have always been shipped upon application, and the only prohibition is that placed by the Gene ral Commanding the Department, whose object was to preserve them for the use of the amy. This order he has always relaxed when applied to by private parties for bacon, &c, for their own consumption, but has been so refused spe culators, to prevent improper speculation in the necessaries of life. Notice is therefore given to parties needing provisions for their own use, that the same wilt be permitted transportation* by the Commanding General, and will be at all times furnished by the road.
