A Good On on General E. KIrby Smith.
' A to pergonal courage, Gen. E. Kirby
Smith has but few superiors. This was
shown conspicuously at the first battle of
Manassas, at Richmond, Ky., and at
Jenkins' Ferry, Ark. His dash in bat
tle and his reckless daring on many a
bloody field, has procured for him the
toubriqutt of the chevalier Bayard of
the Soutk
His capac;ty as a Department Com
mander is another matter, and is one
with which we have no concern at pres
entwe only wish to state a little circum
stance to prove that he was at least
greatly deficient as a "btisiness man."
The Confederate Government entered
into a contract with certain parties to
supply the army with about $138,000
worth of Quartermaster's stores, the ar
ticles to be purchased "abroad" and de
livered at certain designated points in
the Confederacy, the parties to receivs
fifty per cent profit on the original pur
chase. The contractors complied very
faithfully with their contract; and, in
consequence, the Government was anx
ious that they should be promptly paid
the amount due them. Thu settlement
of the business on the part of the con
tractors, was entrusted to Co1. M.,a prom
inent and very intelligent Missourian,
whilst Gen. Smith himself, saw proper to
represent the Government. The two
gentleman met daily for six or seven
days, passing over the several itpms
without any serious disagreement upon
any point. When it was thought that they
had almost finished the settlement, Gen.
Smith remarked very quietly to Col. M.,
that he would "nut Hgree to pay any per
centagti on this bill." "May. I a?k the
reason ?" inquired Col M.
"For the reason," replied General
Smith, "that the contract stipulates that
the articles were to be purchased
' abroad,' which was not done, as it is
well known they were bought in
Mexico."
"Indeed," remarked Colonel M ,
" I was not before aware that Mexico
was a part of the Confederacy."
" Nor wai I," replied General Smith,
"but I have always entertained the
opinion that it was on th American
continent"
" Well, what if it is, it is included in
the word 'abroad' contained in the con
tract," remarked Colonel M .
"I am surprised, sir, to hear you say
so, for this word 'abroad' means Eu
rope, Asia, Africa, any place not on
this contineni," replied the General.
" Well, really General, if that be the
meaning yon attach to the word, you and
I cannot settle this matter at all; it
shall go to Richmond," remarked the
Colonel, very warmly.
"As yon please, sir," responded the
General, " I am sure I am righL"
The Colonel was very much vexed,
bat wishing to settle the matter without
delay, he obtained the consent of the
General to consult some of his friends
ai to the point of difference, In the
course of the evening.
The next morning when the parties
met, the Colonel remarked that be had
been fortunate in getting possession of
the original contract which he was grati
fied to perceive, satisfactorily settled the
point in debate, when they separated the
evening before. . The original contract
contained the word Europe marked ont
and the word " abroad ' interlined.
Appended was a note stating that the
alteration was made as it might be more
convenient and cheaper to purchase the
articles in Mexico or the United States.
When the General read this belaid down
the paper and remarked that be discov
ered that he was mistaken, but laid he:
"1 know nothing of business, I never
transacted anything in my life, never
even bought a horse for myself"
This point beiLg settled, the next mat
ter was the payment which was to be
made in cotton at six cents per pound,
which was the price when payment should
oave been made, though cotton had now
advanced to twelve cents. The General
insisted on paying at the then price of
cotton, though be irankly acknowledged
that the contract was very explicit that
payment should be made in cotton at
six cents. We are not informed whether
be yielded this point or not, but are
rather inclined to think he did not, as no
man was more obstinate when he took
p any notion, whether it was Tight or
wrong Mobil Dribunt.
letter ef Oen. Wade Hamptoa to the
Hon. Ksverdy Johasaa.
The following letter, addressed by Oen.
Wade Hampton to the Hon. Reverdv
Johnson id relation to the burning of
Columbia, S. C, was read by the latter
in the United States Senate on the 1st
inat :
Wild Woods, Mia, April 21st. 1SCC.
To Ik Hon. Reterdg Johnion, Unitri
Siatct Senate Sm: A few days ago I
saw in the published proceedings of Con
gress that a petition from Benjamin
Rowla, of Columbia, South Carolina, ask
ing compensation for the destruction of
o
MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, MONDAY EVENING, MAY 14, 1S0G.
bis home by tho Federal army, in Febru
ary, 1805, had been presented to the Sen
ate, accompanied by a letter from Major
General Sherman. In this letter General
S. used the following language : "They,"
the citizens of Columbia, " set fire to
thousands of bales of cotton rolled out
kito the streets, and which were burning
when I entered Columbia. I, myself,
was in the city as early as nine o'clock
and saw these fires and knew that efforts
had been made to extinguish them ; but
a high and stormy wind kept them alive.
I gave no orders tor the burning of your
city, but. on the contrary, the reverse;
and I believe the conflagration resulted
from tho great imprudence of cutting the
cotton bales, whereby the contents were
spread to the winds, so that it became an
impossibility to arrest the fire.
" I saw in your Columbia newspapers
the printed order of Gen. Wade Hamp
ton, that on the approach of the Yankee
army all the cotton should be burned,
and what I saw myself, I have no hesita
tion in saying that he was the cause of
the destruction of your city."
i This grave charge made aguinst me by
Gen. S. having been brought before the
Senate of the United States, I am natu
rally most solicitous to vindicate myself
before the same tribunal. But my state
has no representative in that body. Those
who should be there are debarred the
right of entrance. In those halls there
are none to speak for the South none
to participate in the legislation which
governs her none to impose the taxes
she is ealled on to pay and none to de
fend her or vindicate her sons from mis
representation, injustice, or slander.
Under these circumstances I appeal to
you, in the confident hope that you will
use every effort to see that justice is done
in this matter. ...
I deny most emphatically that any
cotton was fired in Columbia by my or
der I deny that her citizens set fire to
thousands of bales rolled oirt into the
streets 1 deny that any cotton was on
fire when the Federal troops entered the
city. And I most respectfully ask of
Congress to appoint a committee charged
with the duty of ascertaining and report
ing all the facts connected with the de
struction of Columbia, and thus fixing
upon the proper author of that enormous
crime the infamy that he deserves.
. ;Ism willing to submit the case to any
honest tribunal. Beforeany such I pledge
myself to prove my positive order, by di
rection' bf Gen. Beauregard, that no cot
ton should be fired that not one bale
was on lire when Sherman's troops took
possession of the city that he pocitively
promised protection to the city and that
in spite of this solemn promise hi sol
diers burned it to the ground deliberately,
systematically, atrociously. I therefore
most earnestly request that Congress may
take prompt and efficient measures to in
vestigate this matter fully. Not only is
this due to themselves and to the reputa
tion of the United States army, but to
justice and to truth.
Trusting that you will pardon me for
troubling you, I am, etc.,

How the Cholera was Brought Over the
Sea.
' The cholera, as is known, came to
New York in the Virginia, and the fol
lowing are the facts regarding the ap
pearance and history of the disease, as
obtained by the New York Tribunt from
Dr. Charfener, the ship's surgeon, and
the captain :
The Virginia sailed from Liverpool on
the 4th instant, having on board fourteen
saloon passengers and one thousand and
twonty-nine in the steerage. A few of
the latter were Irish, but the great ma
jority were German and Dutch, coming
chiefly from Rotterdam, Wurtemburg,
and various towns of Holland and Den
mark. They had no knowledge, so far
as we ascertained, of the existence of uny
epidemic in any of the places they come
from, or through which they passed, on
their way to Liverpool. There is evi
dence, however, that in certain towns of
Saxony, near which some of them have
resided, the disease had appeared during
the past winter: All were perfectly well
Bt date of starting, and remained so until
the 12th, when three persons (a man, a
woman, and a child) died, after a few
hours' illness, with symptoms of epi
demic cholera. On the following day
eight persons died with similar symp
toms. On the 14th four died. And ao
the mortality continued up to the 18th,
when the vessel arrived at this port np
to which time thirty-seven had died.
The disease was characterized chiefly
by severe vomiting and purging of mate
rials similar in appearance to rice water;
muscular cramps, and finally collapse,
with cold, livid skin, feeble circulation,
and excessive mental indifference. The
course of the disease was, in the fatal
cases, very brief some dying within five
hours from the time of attack. The first
cases of the disease occurred in what is
called the orlop-deck, which is below two
decks, and below the water line. Since
arriving in port, the disease has not ma
terially abated, fourteen additional deaths
having occurred in all, fifty-one deaths.
The surgeon reports that about three per
cent, of all who have suffered from deci
ded symptoms of the disease have recov
ered of are now convalescent.
The disease has been confined to the
steerage passengers and crew. At the
time of our visit eight were in collapse ;
three were suffering from the character
istio crumps, and others exhibited the
various symptoms of the disease, espe
cially the vomiting and rice water dis
charges. The condition of the ship itself,
at the time of our visit, wns good, cleanly
and well ventiluted. There was no evi
dence of panic ; but, on the contrary,
the passencers looked well, and reported
favorably ot their accommodations and
treatment on the passage. The saloon
passengers especially requested that tboy
might be allowed to remain on hoard the
ship, and not be transferred with th
steerage passengers.

Among the casualties of the recent

Th.t man without asv marked ahilitv.
without fortune, without influence, should '.
start a subaltern officer, and at the end
of the struggle, stand the leader of oar
armies and the most conspicuous person
in the nation, is a fact so near akin to
fable as to shock all the probabilities ot
reason. The philosophic historian will
be puzzled to explain the phenomenon.
Hardly less singular is the circum
stance that a man of the gfat abilities
and rare accomplishments of General
Barll, favored, too, with every adventi
tious advantage, should utterly fail to
win the prize so firmly grasped by his
less worthy competitor. Here is a sol
dier of g'aini ad skill, and every moral

quality requisite to the' character of a
great captain without fame and without
position, after an opportntiity, the mont
propitious to the display of his extraor
dinary genius.
It is not pretended that General Buell
betrayed any incompetency in the com
mand of armies. On the contrary, the
campaigns he conducted were distin
guished as signal illustrations of the art
of war; and particularly by his masterly
manaeuvres was the Mississippi valley
reclaimed from the dominion of tho Con
federacy. At Perryville, and again at Shiloh,
where he rescued Grant from the destruc
tion which an accountable stupidity had
provoked, he exhibited the heroium end
genius of a consummate commander. Yet
Gen, Buell languishes in obscurity, while
Grant is the idol of the nation.
It is not so difficult, however, to explain
the ill fortune of the one as to understand
the success of the other. The spirit of
political intrigue, which was so near ex
tinguishing the fame of Napoleon in its
earliest lustre, and which long before had
arrested Marlborough in the career of
victory, was the evil genius that marred
the fortunes of Gen. Buell. At a time
when public passion clnmored'for the des
olation of the South, this man persisted
with a firmness rarer and more admira
ble than he exhibited in the crisis of bat
tle, in conducting the war on principles
of humanity; and by this noble modera
tion he incurred the displeasure of the
faction that controlled the Government.
The Radicals waged a war of extermi
nation ; but he proposed with the saga
city of a statesman, to conciliate the good
will of the South, while he overcame its
resistance by an exertion of physical
force. His system was too refined for
the comprehension, and too liberal for
the vindictive temper of the dominant
party, and be was forced to relinquish the
command of the superb army be had or
ganized, and to resign a commission
which he would have illustrated by the
most splendid achievements. But the in
justice of which he was the victim has
not impaired the confidence and esteem
of his countrymen. AU appreciate his
abilities; even his enemies respect the
dignity with which he asserts his supe
rior character.
The vanity of an ignoble ambition may
be gratified by the gaze of the mob ; but,
to our mind, Gen. Buell alone, unadorued,
is a more admirable spectacle than the
Lieutenant General, decked - with the
trappings of rank, and followed by the
huzzas of his crowd. K. Y, Newt.
Abtemcs Ward, who designs soon
leaving for Europe, says, in a recent let
ter a Portland paper : ''I had .intended
sailing from Portland, but I am. told
though your steamprs leave punctually,
thoy seldom reach the other side. This
will deter me from patronizing them. 'I
wonld not die in the spring time,' unless
it was necessary."
Bt laying a piece of charcoal on a
burn the pain subsides immediately. By
leaving the charcoal on one hour the
wound is healed, as has been demon
strated on several occasions. The rem
edy is cheap and simple, and certainly
deserves a trial.
