THE WEATHEB, CROPS, &e.
Since oor last, the weather has been quite
showery, too much so for cutting wheat,
that is now being ready. The crops of grain
never looked better, and from all quarters
of the Confederacy, out of occupation by
the invader, we have the same cheering intelligence.
Already, however, has the cloven
foot of the speculator ^and forestaller
began to show itself, and we hear of proffers
to boy entire crops, at high prices.?
The floor in hand is held at high prices,
having been bought under expectations not
realized, and a monopoly of the new crop
would materially assist in keeping up hof es
of remuneration. We would advise the
Farmer to keep bis wheat, as it is fully as
good id his own barns, as the. money which
the speculators are so desirous to rid themselves
of. The army will have its part,
and the remainder can always be sold to
consumers, or kept for barter, or to pay indebtedness,
which last should not be lost
sight of. What if the surplus is taxed, the
producer has abundant cause to thank God
that they have been provided with such
ample means to pay it. There is little prob
Ability of Government impressing it in their
hands; if there shoold be, they will pay the
price it is worth, and next to one's own
*. family, no greater right should be acknowledged,
for the Army is the family of the
country, in it are our sons and brothers,
and we should not speculate ou their blood.
Legitimate trade is considered honest, but
we doubt not, when the soldiers come home,
many trangressors will be held to a strict
accountability. The law cannot reach those
who "put a penny in the urn of charity,
and take a shilling out," but public opinion
is an unerring index, and the Soger of
time points to a future we are making for
ourselves.
Corn is doing very finely, while rye,
peas, potatoes, and all garden stuffs have
been planted as largely as borne forces would
permit, so distress, though barefoot, has for
the time no resting place among us.
OUB CASUALTIES.
Gen. Lee, under date of Culpeper, June
9th, telegraphed to the Department at Richmond
that the enemy had that morning
crossed the Rappahannock at various fords,
with a large force of cavalry and artillery,
but after a severe contest were driven across
the river by Gen. Stuart. The following
casualties are reported to tne Uoiumoia
Guardian, as having occurred in the 1st
S. C. Cavalry, by Col. J. L. Black:
Killed: Capt. R. A. P. C. Jones, Corporal
J. C. Wilkes. Wounded: Capt. J.
R. P. Pox, Privates J. Williams, William
Wade, Stone Crawford, H. J. Jackson,
H. M. Browder, severely, and John Carey
slightly.
Private despatches have also been received,
in Columbia, announcing the death of
Lieut. Col. Frank Hampton, of Richland,
from wounds received in the same fight.?
He was a gallant officer, and one highly
esteemed throughout the State as a useful
and publio spirited citizen.
Capt. R. Ap. Catesby Jones, was from
our owu District, in which his company
W88 raised. He was a noble-hearted gen.
tleman, generous to a fault, aud fully imbued
with the love of country, his devotion
to which be has sealed with his blood. He
was a younger brother of Col. Cad. Jones,
late of the 12th Regiment, and with him
made a home among us a few year's since.
His noble spirit and chivalrous character
soon won him general esteem, and our entire
community mingle their sympathy with j
his bereaved family.
CONFEDERATE NOTES.
The banks ox Kicbmond have resolved,
in consideration that they are not fundable
from and after the 1st of August next, that
they will decline to receive on deposit, frotn
and after the 10th instant any Confederate
State note9 which bear date prior to the 1st
December, 1862, and that they will not
pay out any such notes, nor use them settling
balances from and after the 5th June,
now passed. This occuring at the seat of
Government, showing a disposition to force
? the funding of notes, however desirable it
should be to the holders, must have a bad
effect, if the example is followed by the other
banks of the Confederacy. Congress has
made the proper provisions, and it should
have been deemed advisable to follow the
' instructions of the Act. The money is considered
bad enough, in all conscience, if we
are to judge from the high prices for its
exchange into either State bank bills, or
? specie, bnt any action that even shadows
' forth repudiation, shonld not be tolerated
by the government under its very nose.?
"We trust that all Confederate notes will be
funded at once, as much for the interest of
those who hold them, as it will be to carry
out the plans of the Confederate Treasury.
Our money should be as good as our cause,
' ^ ?
| and those who would depreciate the one,
can have jbut little abiding faith in the latter.
The Banks of Lynchburg, and Bank of
the City of Petersburg have determined not
to imitate the example of the Richmond
Banks in refusing to reoeive and pay out
Confederate treasury notes bearing date
prior to 1st December, 1862, they will make
ho invidious disoriminaton, but will receive
and pay out all issues of the Confederacy
as heretofore.
In connection, we quote the following
from the Richmond Examiner: "The
operation of the tax and funding laws will,
it is hoped, absorb an amount of ourrency
sufficiently great to bring the relative values
of gold and notes to what they jrere at
the time those Acts were passed by Congress.
The depreciation will thus be arrested,
and the plan of taxation in kind,
I hereafter to be pursued, will finally redeem
the currency."
BOLL OP HONOB.
F. G. DeFontaine, Esq., better known
as ?Persanne," the accomplished war correspondent
of the Chaileston Courier, it
seems is at present in Spartanburg. The
following card from him fully explains itself,
so we feel assured that the friends and relatives
of those who have fallen in their country's
cause, will assist the author to swell
the list, and thus enhance the interest of
the work itself, which should find, as it will
deserve, a place at almost every hearth, for
"who has not lost a friend ?" The Legislature
entertained some idea of perpetuating
the memories of our dead soldiers, and
a gentleman, we thought, was appointed to
arrange and collate the work, but we have
beard nothing of it of late; still, this of
Mr. De Fontaine's promises a series of
sketches, which friendship should not fail
to famish the material for. We commend
the article below to the people of our District
: we will do all in our power to assist
those in need of information on the subject.
S. CAROLINA "ROLL OF HONOR."
In response to numerous applications, the
subscriber announces the preparation of
"South Carolina's Roll of Honor?a vol
ume whose design is to perpetuate the name
of every soldier son of the State who has I
falleu by disease or in battle daring the war.
In furtherance of this undertaking, the request
is made of every family who have
been thas afflicted, to send promptly to the
address hereunder signed, a brief biographical
sketch of the deceased, embracing
name, age, place of birth, occupation, regiment
and company, and incidents of battle
or attending death, and especially such dying
declarations as may reflect the character
of the patriot and hero. The whole will
then be revised and arranged in alphabetical
form, and published as soon after the
war as possible. It is desirable that a separate
record should be devoted to the many
Sonth Carolinians, who have fallen in the
servioe of other States. If the expense
and dimensions of the work be not too great,
it will embrace many engravings of the
dead, but at present the latter is not required.
With generous co operation on the part of
the citizens of the State in this matter, S.
Caroliua will not have occasion to erect a
monumental column "to the memory of the
unknown and unrecorded dead."
The press of the State will confer a favor
by freely circulating the above request, and
urging attention to the subject.
F. G. DeFONTAINE,
Spartanburg, S. C.
We learn that the "Camp Fires, Marches
and Battle Fields of the Southern Revolution,"
by "Perscnne," is nearly ready
for publication, and but for the desire to
embrace recent important events, would
have been issued before. It will embrace
from six to seven hundred pages, and bean
interesting compendium of the history, he1
roism, romance, and facetiae of the war.
EDITORIAL ITEMS.
? Yorkville is now a considerable butter
and egg market, to the exclusion of its own

two weeks ago. Brigadier General
Rooney Lee, a son of "the general," received
a severe sabre cat in the thigh.
? We have seen a neat little Primer for
children, from the press of the Greenville

peace, an armistice, and a separate convention
of the loyal and rebel States.
? The dismissal by the President of the

I Wo shall soon see what effect this evidence
of our own relf-respeot will have on our
"foreign relations."
? The stocks of goods advertised at auc;
tion by the Charleston papers are immense.
I How prices can be kept up under such oirI
cumstances, is far beyond our compreheni

from the list of contributors daily published
in the Columbia Guardian, promises a complete
success, if the machinery can be got
through the blockade.
? Two new boats, to assist in the blockade
of Charleston, have been seen inside
the bar. The Courier supposes they will
not stay long, as measures are being taken
to relieve the harbor of their presence.
?General Hunter has been recalled from
the Department of South Carolina; he had
but a short time previous threatened in a
letter to President Davis the immediate
execution of all prisoners that shonld be
captured, and every rebel slaveholder, unless
the order relative to those engaged in
arming the negroes was cancelled.
? The Raleigh Progress says that President
Davis has called on the Governors of
the different States for troops for local defence;
North Carolina is called on for 7000,
to be ready by 1st of August, for 6 months
service, to be raised by volunteering or

? Grant asked Hurlburt for 30,000 men,
?>nd TTnrlherfc renlied that he did not know
where they were to come from.
? The Chicago Tribune urges Abo Lincoln
to take the field in person. We would
advise him to assume the character of
"Jenghis-Kban," aud to keep by him as
an undress uniform that famous cloak and
Sootch-cap, that once before has stood him
in great need. How about the Tycoon's
gift ?

Acoident from locomotive sparks.
? The stream of. emigration from Ireland
to this country, is said to be increasing,
rather than diminishing. Alas, poor country,
whose sons are induced to fly from it to
find a resting place in this !
? The steamer Ruby, from Nassau, was
lost off Charleston bar, on the 12th instant,
and fired by her crew. She belonged to
an English firm, with a general cargo, a
part on Government account. The passengers

ly Island have placed lights on the Northern
end of that place, for tho purpose of
leading vessels astray, which are bound into

and all.
? The "Kaocoon" is the name of a new
Bteamship, purchased'in Hamburg, Germany,
.which has successfully run the blockade
into Charleston, notwithstanding the
decoy lights, on the 11th instant. She has
an assorted cargo, and very desirable freight
for Government. The "Dutchman" probably
has Rhine wine aboard.
? Dr. E. H. Andrews, Dentist, formerly
of Charlotte, N. C., but who, we learn, is
a native of England, is now a prisoner in
Washington oity, having been captured
some time since, with a considerable sum of

? Shares of stock in the "Dixie Steamship
Company," we see advertised to be

? It^burts a North Carolina paper to know

of Virginia, as he was elected once before,
and a "rigid righteous" secessionist from
the first; but "he fowt," and that ought to
make matters worse in the Editor's imagination.
? The news reporter at Jackson is receiving
the "blessings" of the press generally.
The Florence Confederate says he "does
1 r
cot eeem to have sense enough to go is.
when it rains."
? The crops in Texas promise abundantly.
The' greatest danger to be apprehended
to the crops is now from an exoess of rain,
for the present indications are that this is
to be one among the few rainy seasons of
Texas.

? There is still "great cry and little wool"
over the Vallandigham affair, in the North.
It affords good material for Buncomb.
? Edie, the absconding Charleston clerk,
had nearly got off co England; he had been
detained by a fair enohantress, who had resolved
to accompany him, and to prevent
his going without her had got possession of
his papers. His career is another illustration
of the consequences of fast habits and
evil associations.
? Col. Joseph A. and Maj. A. A.Davidson,
of Iredell, ft.. C., were drowned
while seining in the Catawba river on.the
1st instant.
? The "military Governor of Louisiana,"

? The Bluffton raid was effected by a New
Hampshire Regiment, 1,000 strong?none
punished.
? Maj. Gen. D. H. Maury, has arrived
at Mobile, and resumed command of the
Department of the Gulf.
? The Yankees assert that the overthrow
of the Constitution of the United States,
would utterly defeat the great experiment
of Republican liberty. They ignore the
fact that the suppression of free speech and
the press, has already shown the South to
be with the Constitution, andouly the "experiment"
of consolidation likely to end
with the success of the "rebellion."
?The Abolitionists have often asserted
that "the South could not be kicked out of
the Union," now thay find it so difficult to
whip her in again, that they call on all the
rag-tag and bob tails of Europe to aid them
in their oowardly attempt at subjugation.
? A Spanish steamer was lost 45 miles
off Mobile Point, on the 25th ultimo, with
a cargo from Havanna yajued at ?500,000.
Of 42 .passengers and crew, only four were
saved?one of them'h member of General
Buckncr's staff.

? Some of the lately arrived exiles say
that the yellow fever has made its appearance
in New Orleans. This is quite probable.
It has often appeared sooner in the
year than this. Happily it can have no effect
except on the Yankees.
? A country editor having received two
gold dollars ia advance for his paper, says
that he still allows his children to play with
other children, as usual.
? A Cincinnati dispatch reports that President
Davis replied to a dispatch of Gen.
Bragg with regard to Yallandigham, that if
he took the oath of allegiance to the Southern
Confederacy to receive him, and if not,
to send him back.
? Gen. Morgan has been turned loose, it
is said, with instructions to report to no
one but Gen. Johnston.
? The Montgomery Advertiser says that
there is a mistake, and that though Bragg
was the first officer confirmed by the JPermanent
Government, the commissions of
the others vrho were confirmed by the Provisional
Government were dated at a period
anterior to i;bat of General Bragg.
? Pemberton sent word that he could hold
Vicksburg, and told Johnston to take his
time and organize and discipline his forces.
? The reported taking of Helena some
days since, grew out of the fact that our
troops mado a feint on that place, and did
sncceed in capturing a heavy train of wagons
in the rear of the town, and capturing
quite a number of prisoners. Our forces
were composed of cavalry principally.
? The Chattanooga Rebel of the 7th says:
The gallant Pemberton was wounded at the
.last attack on Vicksbarg. His traduoers
will have their feelings wounded when they
hear of it. ?
Whenthe Confe'deratStaiders were'at
Morgantown, Va., a few weeks since, the
citizens of Waynesburg, Penn., sent a flag
of trace some eight miles, offering to surrender.
? The Yankees appear to be on the eve of
making another move. It appears that
Hooker is tired of Ashing in the Rappahannock
and is going to try a bole somewhere
else.
? The death of Gen. Jackson has caused
the following changes and promotions, viz :
Gen. A. P. Hill, Lieut. General j Gen. W.
D. Pender, of N. 0., and Gen. Heath,
Major-Generals. Other promotions remain
yet to be made known.

Jackson, June 10. ? The Bowman
House, the only hotel left by the Yankees,
was destroyed by fire this morning.
Maj. Smiley, commandant of the post,
escaped by jumping out of the third story
window, and was caught in a blanket.?
Loss estimated at 8250,500, partially insured.
Jackson, June 11.?A special to the
Mississippian, dated Panola, June 10, says
the Yankee cavalry, 1,000 strong, under
Col. Hatch, passed Holly Springs on Monday,
going South?another Grieison raid
contemplated.
Col. McCullock, 2d Missouri cavalry, attacked
the enemy 28 miles south of Memphis
on Monday and put them to rout.
Northern dispatches say Hunter's troops
sailed from Port Royal to reinforce Banks.
A private letter from Clinton, La., dated
June 8, says, Port Hudson was exposed to
a tremendoas fire bv the enemy's fleet for
the past ten days. The Essex and two other
gab boats were so badly damaged that
they withdrew from the attack.
Grierson, with 2,000, attacked Col. Logan,
with 600 men, near Clinton on the 4th
inst. The enemy were handsomely repulsed
and driven off with a loss of 80, including
50 prisoners. Our loss was 3 killed
and 14 wounded.
A negro Lieutenant and 12 others belonging
to John Taylor Moore, near Grand
Gulf, who had arrested citizens and committed
depredations were brought here to
day. Some excitement, coupled with
threats to administer the lynch law, was
caused, but tbey were quietly turned over
to the military authorities to be dealt with,
a3 they claimed to be U. S. troops.
A correspondent of the N. York Times
adverts to Grant's loss, and says it was tremendous.
For instance, an Indiana Regiment
went in nine hundred strong and came
out with one lieutenant colonel and fifteen
men.
The same correspondent says a Federal
brigade Was repulsed on the Big Black riverby
Gen. Johnston.
Jackson, June 12.?An offioer who left
Vicksburg on Wednesday night, reports all
working well, the garrison in fine spirits,
well supplied with provisions, and so far
but little damage done by the enemy's fire.
The total loss of the garrison since the. commencement
of the siege does not exceed
five hundred. Grant was still pegging away
from his parallels, but no mischief has
been done so far.
A special dispatch to the Mississippian,
under date of June 12th, says Gen. Marmaduke
captured one transport and sunk anothcr
near Helena on the 11th instant.?
Two regiments were sent to Helena against
him ; he routed them and drove them back
to the town.
General Price is marching on Old Town
Point, eighteen miles below Helena.
Twenty two companies from North Mississipi
have reported for duty under the

Summit, June 13.?Gentlemen from
Woodville reports Banks fortifying on
Thompson's Neck, northwest of Port Hudson,
and planting heavy siege guns.
Banks has mustered several regiments
out of service.

Jackson, Jane 13.?Our loss in the
series of attacks is about six thousand, that
of the enemy between forty and fifty thousand.
Grant's present force does not exceed
sixty thousand, notwithstanding the
heavy reinforcements which have reached
him. Numbers are swept off by sickness
and desortion.
Prom Vicksburg.
By far the most interesting piece of intelligence
received from Vicksburg yestorday,
says tho Richmond Examiner, of the
10th inst, is the statement that Kirby
Smith's forces hold Miliken's Bend. This
is an important strategic point on the Mississippi,
thirty two miles, by the course of
the river, above Vicksburg, and of course
above the mouth of the Yazoo. If it is indeed
true that the Confederates hold that
point with force, Grant's campaign is virtually
finished. The reader must recollect
that the Federal army obtains all its supplies
from the river above Vioksburg. Although
Grant's attack was made from Grand
Gulf, that place was not long his base;
and when he gained Haines' Bluff and the
Yazoo, all communication with it was aban
doned. He relies on Memphis and the river
above Vicksburg for food and reinforcements.
Milikin's Bend in Confederate
hands cuts off both. The river is narrow,
and makes such a turn as to form a narrownecked
peninsula of land there. With ordinary
artillery only, the passage of everything
except the strongest iron clads can
be easily prevented. In fact the possession
of this point destroys Grant's communications
most effectually. He must either carry
Vicksburg immediately by a general assault,
or make good his retreat on Memphis
with all haste. This he cannot do without
an enormous loss of stragglers, prisoners
and material, even if uninterrnpted by the
Confederate troops.
The effeot of the alleged movement by
Kirby Smith is easily seen; the only thing
? ? s ,
doubtful is the truth of the statement.?
The news is not official, but we give it credit,
because of its probability. It was stated
a f$w days since, that Gen.. Smith had
crossed at Port Hudson. It is possible
that a portion of his forces did actually
aid the army at that point in tho repulse
of Banks; but it is not necessary to suppose
that all his troops were engaged; and when
Backs was defeated there was no longer necessity
that aoy of them should be theTe.
LATESTNEWS,
THE NEWS.
We can gather little of importance by
last evening's mail, though our paper contains
all of interest. Vicksburj is still
safe, and Kirby Smith's occupation of
Miliken's bend seems confirmed.

Prom Fredericksburg.
Richmond, June 14.?Letters from
Fredericksburg by this evening's train state
that the Yankees have returned to the Stafford
side of the Rappahannock. Two trains
crowded with troops were seen to leave the

Richmond, June 15.?Northern dates
of the 18iu state that whilst the steamer
Maple Leaf was conveying 300 Confederate
officers from Fortress Monroe to Fort Delaware
on Wednesday, the prisoners overpowered
the guard, captured the boat, and ran
her in near the Virginia shore, when all
but twenty-six escaped. General Dix sent
a cavalry force after them, i>ut up to the
latest advices bad not recaptured them.

The Fight in Culpeper County.? i
The details of Tuesday's battle in Culpeper
county are still meagre. It appears to
have been fought upon the farm of John S.
Barbour, Esq., near Brandy Station. The
enemy's force, consisting of from fiifteen to
twenty thousand men crossed the river at
an early hour in the morning, got in the
rear of our pickets and captured them, and
pressed rapidly on to our camps, wheih they
