NO. 22 southern cotar ftoctrn. Iatj Tn this column we desire to publish such poetry as is commemorative of events which occurred during the war, or of the sentiments and feelings of those who par ticipated in it, and memorial sketches in verso of gallant officers and men who fell in battle, or signally distinguished them selves. Our supply of poetry on hand is less than any other material, and wo re spectfully ask those who have such as is suited to the purpose for which we de sign this column, to add to our small stock. North Carolina can boast of seve ral (ladies and gentlemen) who have poet ical talents of high order, and from them we should be pleased to hear at all times.
