v . Ylliul a Captured I miUtM' SayM,
S The Lcoaburg eorrcsponccnt of the Mriu||im
records the following reply made
to qim by a Yankee captured at Lceshurg bntttle,
when asked why he enlisted:
t4l enlisted in July," said ho, "and have been
ince&antly drilling since, but often wished I
was out of it. Trade being totally stopped,
iriost of us out of employinent, and to keep from
starvation was the the main motive. We always
heard you spoken of as a 4 handful of re"
without arms and principle, who were ruling
some districts by force, and our papers conlinuuliy
report tknt tlio great mass of the people
loved the Stars and stripes' as much as we,
and only wanted us to eoino across the river
when thousands would join us. To read the
Boston papers daily sent us, any one would
suppose we were badly whipping you in some
quarter or other every day. Hut I always had a
suspicion, judging from the boldness and hearing
of your rebels, that such reports were fabrication.
AVe have been in the service six
months, and have received about twenty dollars?the
rest always being 'promised.' 1 entered
the service to support my wife and child,"
(said he, with filling eyes) "but I have not been
able to do so from their inhuman treatment."
They (///speak in harsh terms of their treatment
from the authroitics at W ashington, and
scorn glad to have shirked the yoke of the
Lincoln dynasty.
Salty.?Upon the reception, says the M"r~
cury of the 25th inst., of the news that Uov.
Brown was appropriating salt at other points,
the article became exceedingly active in the
Augusta market. A multitude of drays were
engaged in transporting salt to the other side
of the Savannah. Somehow Governor 1>. got
inkling of the movement and gave orders, by
a despatch, that all the salt in the city in
the hands of dealers should be seized. Accordingly
over 700 sacks were seized on Friday
at the depot of the South Carolina Railroad.
Much had, however, made its escape to
South Carolina. Some of the people of Augusta
kindled bonfires 011 Friday night, in approval
of the Governor's action.
We understand Governor Pickens is about
issuing a like proclamation.
Ecoxomv.?The Yicksburg 117//V/ notices a
favor sent to that ofliee, by a lady, as follows :
A great curiosity was sent us by Mrs. J.Ian
cnaru. it is a " mouci economical candle," <?0
yards long, and it is said will burn six hours
cacli night for six months, and all that light at
a cost of about 50 cents. It is made by taking
one pound of beeswax and three-fourths of a
pound of rosin, and melting them together;
then take about four threads of slaek-twistcd
cotton for a wick, and draw it about three
times through the melted wax and rosin, and
wind it in a half; then pull the end above the
boll and light it, and you have a very good
candle. Our's is very fancifully wound on a
corn-cob, and makes a prcttv ornament. The
curious can see it at our ollice. Mrs. Jilancliard
deserves a premium for the invention,
in times like these, when candles are scarce
and dear.
Redudtion in tiie I'kice ok Salt.?The
committee appointed by a meeting of the citizens
of Lynchburg to take into consideration
the exorbitant price of salt, says the Richmond
Examiner, report that their labors have closed,
and that salt will hereafter be sold to consumers
by Messrs. M. Daniel & Irby, at $3,50
per sack; and that the supply, it is supposed,
will be ample. This is a great point gained by
the action of tho citizens of Lynchburg; and
we do think it is .time that some steps should
be inaugurated in Richmond, to relieve house
keepers of needy circumstances, from the
abominable extortions being practiced.
The Enemy's Cavalry.?The London
Times's correspondent does not give a very
flattering description of the enemy's cavalryl
According to his account, most of the ollicers
don't know how to get on a horse, or to alight.

The residence of the late Dr. Harney, in
Baton Rouge, Louisiana, now the property of

A Yankee Woman Determined that iikk

Sanilac, Mich., was so determined her husband
should not enlist in the army, that, a few
nights ago, while he was asleep, she laid his
hand on a bloek of wood, and taking a dulshaving
knife laid it across his middle and fore
linger, and striking the instrument a sharp
blow, nearly severed them. She completed
the job by sawing tliein off with a dull jackknife,
but the amputation was so bnntrlinnlv
done that a surgeon was called to do it over.

I'ooa ou> Scott.?An Ohio paper says that
old Scott is in his dotage, behind the times,
and unlit to have the direction of an army.
Poor old man! To be kicked out of power,
and taunted by his own friends as a miserable
dotard. Put yosterdav, lie was the "great
Captain of the age j" "now, none so poor as

as a fact worthy of note, that every

CI RC UI.Alt. "
To (lie Soldiers' Aid Soriolaes uf S. C.
In answer to the numerous enquiries which hnvo
ocen niauc uy uicumercni "aki societies wtiicli Have
been recently formed throughout tho State. I have
been intruded by his Kxcellency Uov. Pickexs, to
give the following information.
Depots will be established by the Quartermaster
(Icneral, both in Charleston and Columbia, for tho
reception of all donations of clothing ; and he is also
charged with the duty of forwarding and distributing
the same.
The "Department" will receive all donations of
clothing, say frock coats and pantaloons, of heavy
worsted goods, shirts and drawers, of heavy homespun
or Manuel, wool, or heavy cotton socks, blankets
new or second hand, also heavy shoes.
The plan upon which tho State designs supplying
her soldiers with all necessary clothing, is based unon
tlioir willingness to surrender to the State the amount
of money appropriated hy the Confederate Govern,
inent for this purpose, say forty-two ($12) per annum,
this sum not now being sufficient in consc(|ueuco of
the greatly advanced cost of material. It is in view
of this fact that thcso laudable "Associations" of ladies
and gentlemen, are cordially welcomed as coadjutors
in this noble work, and in proportion to their
voluntary contributions of labor and materials, will
the absolute cost of clothing for our gallant volunteers
be reduced.
In the event that any of the " Associations" should
not fool themselves able to furnish both material and
labor, the Quartermaster General is instructed by his
Excellency the Governor, to rc-imburse such Assoeia
lions I lie cost ot" all materials, at a rate not exceeding
similar materials purchased by tno "Department;''
and the t|Uanlity allowed tor each garment shall be
the same as used in our Manufacturing Durenu.
Societies are particularly requested to advise the
Quartermaster General of the quantity of work they
can do per week, and the amount of donations they
will probably send.
To prevent confusion and loss, the following method
lor marking packages should bo strictly observed. All
Societies near Charleston, should ship to Charleston
ahd mark thus:
So. 1. TO QUAltTEHM ASTKU GKXKRAL
Charleston*, S. C.
Trom Aid Society at (here insert place.)
Societies near Columbia, should ship and mark thus:
No. 1. TO ASSISTANT QU ARTKRM ASTKK,
CoLU-MUlA, S. C.
From Aid Society (licre insert name.)
Tho packages should be marked distinctly, and numbered
from one 1) upwards, A correct invoice should
accompany each shipment.
All articles shipped at the expense of the State.
