A. Bereaved Family. In Carroll county, Ya., near Mount Pleas ant Church, lived, the family of Carter Cox. Both parents and children were alike devoted to temperance, piety . and religion. The commencement of 1862 saw this family, husband and wife, six sons and three daugh ters, all in the enjoyment of health, indus trious in the pursuits of business, kind and affectionate to each other ; happy in the service of God they lived. But, alas ! a sad change came quickly over that family : in a few short weeks Hamilton, Fleming, Melville. Drusilla and Leah had all fallen victims to Diptheria. Giles A. Cox, the eldest son was ' in Gen. iloyd s stan and has not been heard ot since the battle ot Fort Donelson. W. D. Cox, a younger brother in the army of the Potomac, died of fever at Danville, Ya. These pious children having laid up their treasure in Heaven, died as happy as they had lived faithful. Some of them when speechless in death, clapped their glad hands in token of victory. How impressively the history of this family presents the sacred truth " Therefore be ye also read v." May the parents and brother and sister, surviving members ot this deeply amicteu amily, feel assured that by the assisting grace of God they will soon rejoin their loved ones in the blissful home of all the faithful at God's right hand in Heaven.

Mr. Editor: T ask leave to communicate the following through your columns : Sinco writing to you before the battle of Freder icksburg, things have changed with me very much. I have been a prisoner of wjar, but have been paroled and am now lodged in camp at this place, to await my exchange. I think we all ought to have a furlough until we are. exchanged. But we can't get it ; for we have a chimney corner military law, ex ercised by a lew of our fop officers who dp not care any more for a soldier than they do for a dog. No , Mr. Editor, when this war broke out T volunteered to fight for my country, not to ecp a set of drunkards m cnice. I think the authorities ought to look into such things and not allow such men to hold office. The time will come when they will not hav any power over us, and they ought to think ot. it. Our civil offices will be to fill, and I am in hopei these men will be remembered, and when they come before the people asking for offices of honor and trust, I hope the people will turn their backs upon their. A. M. SAUNDERS, -Co. K, 37th N. C.'T. The Killed And Wounded. The State papers are filled with lists of the killed and wounded in the North Caroli na Regiments, in the recent battles at Fred ericksburg, Ya., and at Kinstm and White Hall, in this State. We would be glad to copy all of them, but their length entirely prevents us from doing so. The large num ber of the slain and wounded, fully attest the bravery and heroism of North Carolina soldiers, and the high commendations be stowed upon their valor, patience and intre pidity, by their commanders, add otber wreaths to the chaplet of fame which they have so erloriouslv woven around the brow w t of our good old State. Speaking of our victories some writer has most truly and beautifully said : 44 And when we. turn to our armies truly these victories are the victories of the privates. God foibid that I should take one atom of honor or of praise from those who led our hosts upon those days of glory from the accomplished and skillful Lee, the Admirable Crictiton cf our armies from the God fear ing and indomitable Jackson, and Hill, upon whose prayer bedewed banners victory seems to wait from the intrepid Stuarf, whose cavalry .charges imitate those of Murat ; from the great host of Generals who swarm around- our country s flag as Napoleon s - Marshals did around the Imperial Eagle; but, nev ertheless our victories are the victories of the privates. It is the enthusiastic dash ot their onsets, the fearless bravery with which they rush even to the cannon's mouth, the ntter recklessness of life, if so be that its sacrifice may only lead to victory, the heart felt impression that the cause is the cause of every man and that success is a necessity. "What intense honor do I feel for the private soldier?' The officers may have motives other than the cause the private soldier can have none. He knows that his valor must nass unnoticed, save in the narrow circie of tf his company ; that his sacrifice can bring no honor to his name, no reputation to his fam- ly ; that if he survives he lives only to en ter upon new dangers with the same hope lessness of distinction; that it he dies he will receive nothing but an unmarked grave, and yet is he proud to maintain his part in the destructive conflict. His comrades fall around him thick and fast, but with a sigh and tear he closes his ranks and presses on to a like destiny. Truly, the first monument which our Confederacy rears, when our in dependence shall have been won, should be a lofty shaft, pure and spotless, bearing this inscription To Correspondents. To P.

G. Heilig & Co. Such is the patriotism of men who have been permitted to hire substitutes and stay at home to speculate on tne government anu poor soldiers families. We may add these very sarafi men have many neighbors and relatives in Capt. B.'s Company. But they wnntd rather see their neighbors and rela tives in the army go barefooted, than sell their leather at the reasonable figure of $2 per nnnnn. Tt will be no hard matter to imagine what are.the feelings of Capt. B.'s men, and what the consequence would be if peace should be declared and they permitted to return. It is not strange that men having such black hearts will pay large sums oi money for substitutes. It is natural tnat they should fear to die and face the Judge of all the earth. . PRIVATE, Co.

Not content with breaking up the election lor a member to .Lincoln s Con gress at Isle of Wight Court House last Monday, and diiving u large body of Yan kees behind their fortifications around Suf folk, on Friday night last the General drove in the enemy's pickets at Suffolk, and offer ed him battle, which he declined to accept. By these aggressive movements, General Pryor not only keeps the thieving Vandals cooped up in. Suffolk, and saves the people in that section a vast deal of annoyance, but he is securing for his own army more ba con, grain and forage, than his army and horses can consume. As soon as General Pryor's command crossed the river, the prisoners. themselves with glory. , newed this morning.

The New York Herald says that Seward consented to remain in the Cabinet only on condition that the Conservative policy is carried out. It adds that Seward is violent ly opposed to Lincoln s negro proclamation. All accounts agree that Lincoln is deter mined to stand bv his emancipation procla mation.
