"MY COUNTRY: BIGHT OBJ EDGECOMBE COUNTY, NORTH THE SOUTHERN ER. THURSDAY, - DCT. 17, 1867 w nAciii:.!. . tin, ,f (inH't BSi!!r." i i rFrom the Southern Opinion.! Perhaps no battie in the whole warpemg not precisely comme a jam, was ni-fisented a denouement so shastly and horrible as the battle of Lcesburg, thus graphically described by " Publi cola." Ooe cau almost see the awful ly distorted carcasses, and those "hands" upraised, as he powerfully! rlfnu;ts them, beseeching, as it were,! Heaven's mercy. The scene remind; i iji us somewhat of Willis' famous account of the "Campo Sauto," near Naples, Ei. The hero in the battle of Leesburg (the most disastrous in its -de;uoraliz ing effect to the Federal cause) was Captain Duff, a beardless stripling, who commanded a company of sistj raw recruits, many of wiiom had never fired a musket. But what signified military knowledge to men determined a to fight, and made of such invincible metal that nothing could stand agaiust the impetuosity of their combined at- tack? This Captain Duff and his co27ipan held for over one hour the whole Yankee force in check, while the Mississipian brigade got into line of oattie, advancing at a uouuie-qiuek:. The fight opening at a flying sn;.-. field after field was crossed by pur and pursuing, the intervening suiall. belt3 of wood affording but a moihen-i tary respite and shelter : for no sooner i were the euemy under cover of thfi supposed retreat, than the BarksduU. ceo flanked and drove them forth un on some other regisaent of this iu--doinitable brigade. Inch by inch tho ground was contested to regain tlu4 road, up which they had advanced frow the river. This design was frustratoJ by the soldierly forethought or Geuertl Evans. The artillery (tins Richmond Howitzers) held the ground. Theft '. was no alternative but for the enemy to make a bold dash at recovering the hut road by which they could rccross tit river. The oattie was fully inaugura ted, and the result of the struggle if supremacy hung in the balance at tr critical juncture. The officer in coif mand of tho Federal forces Coloiil Baker fell from his horse shot stce dead, and at the same ii tant his ib ble animal fell under him. Oonstijr uat'ou and panic followed as soon ias this fact became known. There now commenced a running fight aud a gen- cral stimpcds, the Yankees making a the time for the river, the Miss" sipians driving them intentionally 9- wards the bluff (Balls Bluff) iri which there vas no means of esc;pe except by looping into the river-j-a distance of fifty feet. There was ho leisure allowed lor speculative eonid cration. Go they must, and go jr-ey li! .' the 13arksdalj men driving iiem into this trap vith the intent of bag ging the whole command. Hiving reached the bluff, it was on.': cf tf a al ternatives capitulation, or a le;.t for life into the waters below. What tired the excited Mississippians ? Vitory was their determined purpose, lice a whirlwind on they swept, cutiing town everything before them; the Coniiler ate yell at that time doing as mudi to demoralize the enemy as would a lom plete rout, or the concentrated fifc of small arms. f It was at this precise momejt a Yankee corps, in reserve, was pacing immediately under the bluff, lining just succeeded in crossing the rivr. Un drove the Confederates, audjivcr the bluff pen moll went the blue jlev ils, believing the' would light iij the stream, at tlie time very unusuallyfiigh and rapid. Collie few of the vo-vrs did reach' the water, but the griatcr portion of the flying host lit upoi the bayonets of the unconceicus adva-ing corps. The sceae at this painful mo ment may be conceived, t'ores (vere impaled alive ; scores disappearedalto gether in the swampy banks en the river, and scores were trampled to death in the mud and mire. The jiinie was complete a simultaneous rusll was made for the boats. Thereby over loaded, they were soon swamped. (The water soon lost its pellucid transptren cy ; it had changed color and appear ance; it was now a compact inais of struggling humanity, aiid far af the eye could see, indigo seemed the' pre vailing tint of the landscape and of the moving mass floating aud flouider ing towards the sea- hundreds ofblue bottles finding that unmistakable bourne from which no traveller has foutid or been accommodated with a return'tick ct. ' What was the Yankee loss in the Ball's Blufi'retreat mil rro-r La knowu, as the Federal commanders never trou ble themselves on such niiuor details. Witness the fights in the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbour ancj Pe tersburg mine. " Immigration was abundant and life bountiful," so a few odd thousands carelessly disposed of here and there mattered but verj lit tie. Frightful as was tli3 destruction of human life, the most revolting spec tacle presented itself many week3 af ter all traces of the fight had disap peared. ' The Yankee dead, as was cus tomary, were lelt for U3 to inter'; and as a deep gulley of considerable extent passed through the ground where the 'chief part of the battle was fought, in to this natural grave the fallen Hes siads were thrown. This cavity being large, and its banks most convenient for shovelling down dirt upon the bu ried groups, the bodies thrown in com posed themselves agreeably to chance and circumstance. In this "way was the mass covered up, and so disappeared from sight' the sad remnant of a detested enemy. It was a considerable period after this great fight that some friends visited our quarters at the Burnt Bridge, Goose Creek, and expressed a strong desire to go over the battle- RO NG : MY COUNTRY."

Politeness, of course, cj crammi ranguiatiou ieptus from remarking upon it. though ae u3 of something pungent was ab solutely necessary for a delicately krained nostril, and the mind suggested that a little ecu dc cologne would be inore than agreeable. I rc have said our hith VvTe have said our hitherto tractable (horse was unruly. He would not face jthe new cemetery. Angered at his itrnnge whimsicalities, we urged him pa to what we had supposed were the fundisturbed rra.ves of our dead ene- f'mies. Horror ! The drenching rains had carried oiF most of the earth thrown down upon these decaying bodies, and what had not been washed away had soddened down between the limbs of the decomposing mass. Arms extend ed as if asking heaven's grace; eyeless sockets, blackened visages, and tortu ous positions of the human figure ar rested the c. e whichever way you look ed along the gorge of death I Shocked beyond measure, we made a precipitate retreat for (amp. offered our report, and forthwith had a detail appointed to cover this revolting sepulchre. But this gully, being the natural water course of the highlands down to the river, the arms we have alluded to would protrude themselves. There was a something in the grotesque attitudes that seemed to speak in voiceless lan guage '-Father, oh, forgive us ! We have ofi'ended against thy holy laws, broken thy commandments; grant us peace and blessing, that the dead may sleep, for that can we not !" And, strange to record, until the army fell back from Jdanassas, oa its memorable retreat for the Peninsula, those exs tended arms would paw the air for some purpose unknown, though cover ed up again and again. A WrtrrJ?r2bl Fif.'j Story. The following wonderful story is said to have been taken from the lo-? book of a vessel which arrived ia New Yorfc. Iu the course of the voyage, that dreadful disease, the ship fever, broke out among tlie crew. One of the' sailors, amo.ig the first victims, was accompanied by his sou,' a lad of fourteen years, who was strongly at tached to his father, and remained with him day and night, and never could be persuaded to leave him for a moment. A large shark was seen every day following the vessel, evidently for the purpose of devouring any one who should die and be committed to the deep. After lingering a few days the sail or died. As was the custom at sea, ho was sewed up in a blanket, and for the purpose of sinking hiin, an old grindstone and a carpenter's axe were put in with him. The very impress ive service of the Episcopal church was read aud the body committed to the deep. The poor boy, who had watched the proceed iq-rs closely, plunged in after his father, when th enormous shark swallowed them both. The second day after this dreadful scene, as the shark continued to follow the vessel (for there were others sick in the ship,) one of the sailors proposed, as they had a shark hook on board, to make an effort to take him. They fastened the hook to a long rope, baiting it with a piece of pork, threw it into the sea, and the shark instantly swallowed it. Having thus hooked him by means of a '' windlass they hoisted him on board. After he was dead they prepared to open him, when one of the sailors, stooping down for that purpose, suddenly paused, and fter listening 'a' few moments, declar ed most solemuly he heard a low gut tural sound, which appeared to pro ceed from the shark. The sailors, after enjoying a heart' laugh at his expense, proceeded to listen for themselves, when they heard a similar sound. They then proceeded to open the shark when the mystery was explained It appears that tho sailor was not dead but iu a trance, and his son, on making this discovery when inside the shark, had, by means of a knife, rip ped open the blanket. Having thus liberated his father, they both went to work and righted up the old grand stone the boy was turning: the father was holding on to the old ship carpen ter's axe, sharpening it for the purpose of cutting their way out of their Jsnah like prison, which occasioned the noise heard by the sailor. As it was ' the hottest season of the year, ' and ' very little air stirring where they " were at work, they were both sweating tre mendously. InERE are now in operation in the world 1)0,627.2 miles of railroad, of which the United States has 36,893.3; Great Britain and Ireland, 13,2S6; France, 8,932.5; Prussia, 5,794.8; Austria, 3,830; and all of Europe, 50 117.5; North America 39,414; Asia, 3,600.3; South America, 1,041.9; Afri ca, 375; Australia, 607.7; West Indies, 410.3. - - ' A change of . less than fifty tho us and votes distributed in certain States would have elected McClollan Presi dent in 18134. s Hiss Evaas. A correspondent of the N. O. Pica yune recently met the author of "Beulah" and "St. Elmo" in & Ido "bile street car. lie thus describes her: A number of passengers were al ready seated, oue of whom immedia tely attracted my attention, and there was something in her appearance which remained me of Irene and Edna Earl, and which made rue suspect that the fair limner of those characters was before me; but I cannot tell what it was, for sho was the very revcrae of the Miss Evans of my imagination. In my fancy she was depicted as a tall madona or nun like woman, a black eyed, serious and somewhat raci uncLolj brunette, '-sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thoughf.," not ugly, but by no means pretty, ana nwie imc a duenna than a'voun (ioum. 1 the Spanish type. She was habited plain ly but neatly in a blue muslin dress, which fitted her admirably, und which I was told, was cut out and made by herself. A fashionable hat trimmed with blue suited the dress. Two veils, one bla'ch and the other blue, entirely ceunccalcd her f'eauturcs which vexed n;e, for I was curious to ascertain whether the features they hid corres ponded with the faultless form of the lady. She was of medium size, small waisted with a well developed bust, a neck very lair, and a perfect moded for a sculptor. Her hands and feet were those of a Southern lady, small and tidy. She looked as if she would weigh about 115 pounds, aud to the eye of an artist resembled . Power's Greek Slave more than the Venus de Medicis or the Venus of Caaova. Af terwards I had tho pleasure of seeing her face to face, and was surprised to find her a blonde, with light chesnut brown hair, soft, expressive aud bril liant hazel eyes, Grecian features, with a nose slightly acuiline, forehead a little higher and broader than Pschye's cherrj-red lips, well curved with Cu pid's bows aud slightly upturned at the corners indicating a smothered propensity for fun. Her cheeks are beautifully tinted with the maiden blush of health and icnccGneo. I was told that she is thirty years old; but how young she looked! I dicided that her age could not be more than twenty-one. I wss amused at her blue dre ss, ue but there 13 noth of the ;bl stocking" t bout her. She wort the blue veil to relieve a temporary iuflamation of the eyelids, caused by too much reading aud writing at night or other imprudence. I was told by an acquaintance that the affection is not constitutional or habitual. I have said that her hands are small and tidy, but they are not dimpled. There- was never a painter, poet or musician, or any juicus, luuactiious or useful woman wit a iliinnh id hands. Hers are ueautilul. but made to wor as to r soothe, to knit aud sew, to touch the chord of music, and to wield the pen of genius, melodious, Her voice is clar, soft and aud its tones si:ik into the Heart; auu when i heard it soothing cheerinp; me, I felt myself strengthened for l :y work. V ucn l entered the car she was conversting very earnestly with a very grave and melancholy looking gentle man, with au intellectual but careworn face. She raised her veil while speak ing to him, but he never looked at her at all, conversed with his face half averted, hand his eyes fixed on "dim vacuity." When he, left the cars his place was occupied by a very dignified, but gallant and courtly old man who met her iraze honestly and alTectiona- telv, as ii he lea cd no evil irom ood- ness. mere was something lasciua ting about her, which every body who entered or left the ear seemed to feel. All knew her, and passing in or out each one paused to speak to her with un affection and reverence which bes poke the esteem with which dhe " is regarded bv the people ot Jiobile ot all classes, aul she had something pleasant to say with a modest smile to all who addressed her. Advantages of AvErti?;!. You see goods is like gals they must go when they are in the fashion and good looking, or else yoke of oxen wouldn't draw 'em off afterwards. The man that advertises most does most business, because he don t make one stock to last one lifetime, i know a merchant of this district who has imported three different batches of goods with a year from Lurope, and now he's uear'y sold out again. How does he and his partner get rid of so many goods? They advertise more than nil the others put together that's the how! I will prove it. If you want to borrow money if you want to lend money if you want a farm to rent if you have one to sell advertise. H your horse, pig. cow, colt, sheep, or oxen go astray, advertise them right off, and not run a chance of losing them altogether, or having to pay as much as the are worth in charge for their keep. If you are a shoemaker, tailor, black smith, wagoner, or any kind of useful mechanic, show people that you are not ashamed cf being a mechanic, by advertising. If you keep an hotel, make it know. When people see a man advertise, they know he is a business man. The world is full of folks who want. Some want to sell; some want to buy; and the only way to meet these wants, and make money, 13 to advertise: tising is like honesty it pays Adver- well if followed ur.

I have seen young and beautiful womea. the pride of gay cir cles, married as the world says, well. Some have moved into their costly houses, and their friends have all come and looked at their furniture and their splendid home for happiness, ai.d have gone away and committed them to their sunny hopes cheerfully and without fear. It is natural to be sanguine tor them, as the young are carried away with similar .feelings. I love to get unobserved into a corner, and watch the bride iu her white attire, and, with her smiling face and soft eye meeting me in the pride cf life, weave a Waking dream of future happiness, and per suade myself that it will be true. I think how thov will sit upou the luxu rious sofa as the twilight falls, and build gay hopes and miuJEur ia low toses the not now forbidden tender ness: aud how thriilingly the allowed kiss and heactiful endcarpieuts of wed ded life will jmake eveu their parting joyous, aud how gladly they will come Oack irom the crowded and empty mirth of the gay to each other's com pany. I picture to myself that young crea ture who blushes even now at his hes itating caress, listening eagerly for his footsteps as the night steals on, wish ing he would come, and when he en ters at last with an affection a3 undy ing as his pul?e, folds her to hi3 bos om, T can feci the tide that goes flow ing through the heart, and gaze oa the graceful form as she moves about for the kind ofiiccs of affection, smoothing all his unquiet cares and making him forget even himself ia her young and unshadowed beauty. I go forward for years and sec her luxuriant hair put soberly away from her brow ; and her girlish graces resigned into dignity and loveliness, chastened with the gentle meekness of maternal affection. Her husband looks on her with a proud eye, and shows the same ferveut love and delicate attentions which first won her; and hor fair children are grown up about them, and they go on full of honor and untroubled years, and are remembered when they die. Irving. An Item t.'uich livsay Man should Read. We have probably all of us met with instances, in which a word heedlessly spokeQ against the reputation of a female has been magni fied by malicious minds until the cloud has been dark enough to overshadow her whole existence. To those who are accustomed, not necessarily from bad motives, hut from thoughtlessness to speak lightly of ladies, we recom mend the;: j hints as worthy of consid eration. Never use a lady's name in an improper time, or in mixed com pany. Never make assertions about her that you think untrue, or allusions that you feel sho herself would blush to hear. When you meet with meu who do not scruple to use a woman's name, iu a reckless and unprincipled manner, shun them, for they arc the worst members of a community-men lost to every sense ot honor, everv feeling of humanity. Many a good wo man s cnaracter has been ruined aud heart broken' by a lie manufactured by some villian, and repeated where it snouid not have been, and in the pre sence of those whose iudsement could not deter them from circulatinprand braggin of the report. A slander is soon propagated, and tr.e smallest thing derogatory to a woman's charac tcr will fly on the wings of the wind, and magnify as it circulates, until its monstrous weight crushes the poor un conscious victim, xvespect the name woman, for your mother and sisters are women, and as you would have their fair fame untarnished, and their lives uiiembittered by the slanderer's biting tongue, heed the ill your own words may briug upon the mother, the sister, or the wife of some fellow crea ture. Livingstone. Sir It. Murchison gives it as his opinion that Living stone, the African traveller, is not dead. Sir II. M. is president of the Koyal Geographical Society of England. Ue states that if Livingstone escaped in his journey to Albert Nyanza he would undoubtedly prosecute his expe dition to the centre of Africa, aud a longtime must elapse before he is heard from. In the African Mousa's testimony Sir. It. M. puts no faith, because of Moussa's cowardice and the contradictory testimony he has given; and he i3 tho only one of Livingstone's expedition who has ; returned. It is supposeed that he ran off upon the oc casion of some trouble without really knowing what was the end of it. The expedition now gone in search of Liv ingstone is headed by Mr. Young, who spent two years with the .-traveller on the Zambesi in a former expedi tion. The journey intended by ; jthe expedition will bo completed by the end of November, and by Christmas the result aud the fate of Livingstone will probably be known in England.

Sut Lovcnnood's Revclationt. Evils of Gossip. I have known a country which withered away all to notiung under the dry rot ot gossip only. Friendships, once as firm as granite, dissolved to jelly, and then, run away to water, only because of this; love, that promised a future as enduring as heaven and as stable as truth, evaporated into morning mist that turned to a day's long tearaf w.jr because of this ; a father and son wira set foot to foot with the fiery breath of an auger that would never cool again between them, only because of this; and a husband aud his young wifej each straining at the heated leash which in the beginning had been the golden bondage of a God-blessed love, sat mournfully by the side of tho grava where all their love and all their joy lay buried and only because of this. - 1 1 a I I have seen faith transformed to njcsn-W doubt, hope give place to grim despairH anu ciiarity laite oa uueu.iu-e'i.ieaturcs of black malavolence" ;'a'U because of the Bpcll-wor'ds Of scandal and the magic mutterings , of gossip.
