Lincolnton, C., Jan. 27,1865.
Mews. Editors Lincolnton*' the
county site of Lincoln eonnty, was Bet- j
tied more than eighty yearff ago. The
county was first ^called Tryon, in honor
of William Tryoh, Royal Governor; butowing
to his rigorous oppressions) the
General Assembly changed the naihe
to Lincoln, in honor of Benjamin Lincoln,
who was a distinguished American
Genefal in the Revolution of '70,
r This is naturally a beautiful place.
Topographically, it is quite elevated;
antj its mineral water, proximity to the
mountains, together jpifh its salubrious atmosphere,
render it .quite a healthy
climate. Art, however, has'not done her,
part in adorning and beautifying nature.
Unfortunately, most of ffee residences
were placed immediately on the main
streets. The Railroad passing through,
had just begun to excite a spirit of geh^
eral improvement when tfie war began,
which of course suspended every thing
of this kind, There are about fifteen
hundred inhabitants here, many of whom
are industrious and enterprising-citizens,
who will doubtless improve the
place very much, whenever circumstances
are such as to admit their return to
peaceful avocations.
There are four Churches within the
town: Presbyterian, Protestant Ppisco
pal, Methodist Episcopal and the White
Church, as it is called, which is occupied
once each month by the Baptists, and
also one Sabbath in each moiith by the
General Reformed congregation. The
morals of the people appear to be very
good, and there appears likewise, a fair
proportion of refinement anjopg the
citizens. .
In addition to the above, one of the
most attractive things in this-town, is a
large flourishing Female Semh?4ry, conducted
by Rev. Samuel Lander, A. M.
Mr. Lander is a thorough, soholar, a
zealous teacher and a successful educator,
He has determined "to raise tbe
standard of Female education, allowing
no pupil to pass into a higher class
until she has fully mastered the Ruches'
of the lower. Thus far, lie Pas admirably
succeeded, although the high
standard of scholarship that he has ip
* & ? *' 9& Y 4 J
variably required has^beeg, much, in advance
of the female educatiop of the
day. He is assisted by compptepfc teacher's
; and the character of the school,
together with the rates of board and
tuitioft,. t^e healthiness of the climate,
and the comparative quiafc of the town,
renders this a most desirable institution
for the education of- giris and
young ladies. Where a young lady has
passed through this Seminary and received
the Principal's * certificate, she
will be prepared, in a literary and scientific
sense, for the sterner duties of
This iq a nronit.imis time for Barents
to educate their daughters ; money is
very abundant throughout our country,
and very little of it is being expended
for the education of boys and young
^gaen. This cruel and unfortunate war
has so sadly interrupted the education
of our sons, that it becomes doubly important
to educate our daughters thoroughly,
so as to compensate in part for
the want of education among the male
part of our future population. A beautiful;
and uneducated and irreligious
woman, may ruin a nation and submerge
an empire in the gulph of moral degredation;
while one less beautiful, but
thoroughly educated, and sincerely pious
may give chastity and tone to public
sentiment, elevate national character
and do much to redeem a world from
ignorance and sin. Since our Confed-.
fecqracy has been baptised with the
richest blood of her patriot, sons, let
her fair daughters cleanse the social and
moral escutcheon of public sentiment
and character, with intelligence of mind
and pnrity of character.

Gen. Lee Sanguine.
The Richmond correspondence, of the
Mercury Bays: "A distinguished member of
Congress called on General Lee a few days
ago, to talk over the state of the country.?
General Lee said he saw nothing in' the
military situation to justify despondenoy,
muoh less despair. His only fear was that
the disease of depression might be permitted
to spread among the people. If this
coald be prevented, he was sanguine of success.
The member of Congress was opposed
to the use of slaves as soldiers, but Gen.
Lee's arguments induced him to withdraw
all opposition. Gen. Longstfeet and Ewell
concur with Gen. Lee.
Sherman Moving.
Macon, January 28.?Private advices '
from Savannah, state that Sherman commenced
his movement en. South Carolina,
on the 17th inst., with three! columns. The
main column moving towards Charleston,
taking nearly all his.transportation; the two
other polpmns, in light marching order, moving
by separate roans towards Branohville.
Gen. Hill has issued orders fo non-combatanta
to leave Augusta.
Soldier's Boards of Belief.
An important order appears in oar ool
ums this mornirfg, (says the Southern
Guardian,' of the 25th,) issued from* the
office of theJ3teteuAndkor, James Tapper,
Esq. It refers to< the Soldiers' Boards pi
ReHef and the special and exelusiT* attention
of eaoh member is invoked to the daties
now devolving apon them. These daare
so important that the Executive hat
thought fit. to grant details f-rqyn,. militarj
service to those charged with them, in order
that they may be* discharged promptly,
energetically and faithfully. The families
of soldiers' most be care folly looked after,
and their families should he as dear to the
country in the proportion that the services
of the former are valuahte for its protection
and safety. '
