SIMKNS, DURSE 11 C., Propriet1rs.4 111 " ELD S 4 SEPT EMBER 1. 1861 ..LUME XXV.-- 86 + From the Charleston 1urtfolirr. A Banner Song for the South. While the pressof the South is teeming with the patriotic breathings of poetic hearts, we lay our modest tribute at the doors of the beautiful ones of our dear, sunny land-at the feet. of the gallant men who are now upon the tented field, maintain ing the honor of their Country and the glory of their country's name. We strike the lyre and tune our iays in honor of OUR SOUT lERN FLAtU. .. 1'p ! up with our flag and fore'er may it be liigh, foa.ting in pride o'er the land of the free And beneath its bright folds how proudly we'll tight For to~n and fur Jsriec, for Trar-ru and for R i'! Oh! long, long shall it wave O'er the loyal and brave: For the chivalric hearts of a patriot b:nd, Dly their honor have sworn its glory shall stami. And over shall wave o'er our dear native land And ever shail wave o'er our dear native land. Yes, we've lifted our flag; we've raised itat last We've nailed it on high at the top of the ntast: And grandly it flashes, and proudly it blows. As sternly it dashes deliance to foes. II. May it jauntily flaunt and j.yously wave, O'er the peaceful homes of the happy and brave. Where the heart's own beautiful loved ones abide: But where furious war rolls its blood flowing tide. May it triumphantly streamn With a meteor's gleat And nerve every soul for the desperate fight. And glow with a 1uminous glory all bright An etnblein of Truth amd an ertbleim of .;i;ht. An emtilenm of Tru tt and an emblem of .i/i:irt. Yes, we've lifted our flag. we've raised it itt last - We've nailed it on high ::t tiw' top, of the mast: And griaadly it flashes, and proudly it blows, As ste-nly it dashes de:iance to 1f-es. 111.

Let me add, that the ladies of Virginia have acted nobly indeed-and old Virginia is right side up certain, with the ex ception of the North West and the counties bordering on the Puto:nae. Wednesday, a crowd of anibulanees and carriages of every description began to gather at the 1aIilroad Depot-many anxious and many benevolent faces sat in them upon the bed and tnattras ses they contained Ihr the invalids ; and then they waited hours in suspense for 1tat train freigit'ed with pain and suffering ;-at last the :'artling whistle is heard--when the whole ero:d seemed to move a; one mi;;hty wave and strain their eyes down the track.

A Plea for the South Carolina Sohlfier. Thonsands of as brave hearts as ever re sisted a cruel tyrant. or panted for liberty, are upon the soil of Virginia, or ready to move there, prepared to do hattle, and to die, if needhe, in dlefenccof ourhomesaid firesides. These are our own brothers, fathers, and sons. They have freely exchanged the quiet and happy home, with all of its comforts, for the privations of the camp. with all of its battle fields and its blood. They are exposed to temptations to evilwhich are peculiarly strong. Scarcely any school of vice can b found egual to that incident to the camp. .The Baptist Colportnge Board of South Carolina is determined to counteract these evil influence, by putting into the hands of each soldier "he Word of C od." The Bible. together with tracts and volumes of kindred influences, will, it is believed, be as a wall round about to protect them. In pursuance of.this plan, I have been directed to appeal for aid to all such in South Carolina as feel an interest in the spiritul welfare of our soldiers. Companies have been- found in which three-fourths are wvithout' a copy of the New Testament, while in almost every cni iany members are found who have either ni'elerced Co carry with tir.m, obhave lost, this invaluable lok Mueh of their time the sc ldiers have not l ug to do.

IiArN1.: Sir: There are many members of our Legis lature who have accepted commissions in the army from the Confederate government. Those who were commnissioned by me, and afterwards inustered into Confederate service, I think can retain their seats as members of the Legislature : but I suppose all who have received comnlissiuns from the Confederate government, must be considered as accepting disqualifying olices. Please give inc your opinion, as Attorney General, on the point, so that I may have it published, in order that all the members of the Legislature who have accepted such office may be informed, and also that elections may be held to fill vacan cies. as the Legislature is to meet on the first Monday in November.
