'B Found..
The body of Dr. BYnnan, who was a.cidentnt
ly drowned at Asiford's Ferry, several week
ago, was foued on the 3rd inst., washed up in r
bottom of Mr. J. Hare's plantation, about nine
miles below Alston. -The face was entirely ten
off, and the identification only made 'certai by
- papers found in the pockets of the'clothes. We
learn that the body was interred on Mr. 'Hare's
Gool zacking.
We are indebted to a friend for the' followi:1g
recipe for making the above valunble and almost
indispensable -article. Take of sweet -potato
one.part, cut, parch and gtind as if for coffee,
add half as much lamp black, and mix the two
together with an eqnal poriion of mDlasses and
water sufficient to make a pbste:. All thvit is fur
ther necessary is to apply to the shoe or' boot,
and with a brush and elbow grease, a polish will
be had which will take the shihe out of the Cele
brated Mason's blacking. Try it...
Sifie the announcement of the fall and loss of
Richmond, and the falling back of Gen. Lee, bui
little has -been.heastdof either Lef'so- Johnston's
armies. It satisfies us to think that they are :in
tact and in the right place, and we cannot but
feel that, io-day, with the giving up -of the long
contended for capital, our condition is better
than before, and the army of Virginia, relieved
- of that wearying straggle, is now ready and ablc
to stsike where the blow will be *felt. Trusting
inpthe ability ot our great leaders, Gen's. Lee and
Johnston, we hope and wait.
Late EiRmors.
Just before going to-press a rumor, of 'a re
* .freshing character 'if true, reaches this place,
that Gen. Lee has had engagement with Grant,
at Strawberry Station, which resulted in opmp4te
success. Loss of-the enemy .said to bo heavy.
This news conmes via. Chester, and from an officer
said to have been seen there who was wounded
*in'the'fig8t. Date n'ot remembered.
* ~ Through a gentleman from C-olumbia, it is also
reported, that a body of Yankees are at .Fort
Motte, a station on' the South Carolina Railroad,
*and that they have ii~ waite the town tf Sum

Ma. EDitoE :-1 beg you will allow..me space
in your columns, to speak of the extraordinary
of the ladies-of this place. For last
four years, I have traveled over nearly every
State in the Confederacy, and I gave never yet
seen their kindness excelled. Entirely devoted
tb the cause,ihey do a, 4 in their power to re
lieve.the sufferings of our soldiers. Twenty-four
of these ladies, have established here, a most
spiendid hospita. lhe government has not aided
them in the first particular. They furnished the
hos'pital with Ads froin their own houses ; buy
all the nediciMes ; and hire the steward and
nurses. Each I*dy takes a day to supply the
iospital with.provisions, and each vies with the
other An brining the host cgoi'e delicacies. I
assure you, the hospital -is well furnished. A

is kept by ladics. Soldiers, sick, de.spo;dent,
and tired of ihe unequal struggle, are. thcre re
ceived with the greatest ,kindness; their suffer.
ings-arp relieved, and their hearts cheered. They
catch. the spirit of the undying patriotism Qf the
ladies, and go-forth more tetermined to prose
cute the war to the bitter'end. The ladies, not
only receive the soldiers at the hospitel, but take
the"i to their houses, and give them every com
fort they need.. Many pobr soldiers, who bave
Passeo long, dreary monthsin prison, will remem
ber with love and gratitude the noble ladies of
Abberille. They will love to tell their fond
mo.hers, how they were treated by these, good
Where all are so. kind, I dislike to particular
ize'; but'! must be allowed to speak of the ex
treme kindness of Yrs. Kerr to every, soldier.
She does hr part at the hospital, besides, her
hous*e every night is crowded with soldieh. Not
one cent will she receive for her kindness. Of

She is the. kindest lady I have ever nlet, and

The fall of this City alth6ugh not unexpected
is deeply, to be lamented.. As the Capital of the
Confederacy it is of the utmost consequence that
it should have been held, for if anything contri
buted to the cOnfirmation -of. our. governmental
integrity, in.the e yp of the great powers of Eu
rope, it wvas that our seat of Government re
mnained intact and defiant, although ail the efforts
gf our enemies he.d bgen exhausted to eapture it.
It is almost.lamentable, too, to think, that after,
the brilliant su,ccesses of the Confederate arms
on the soilgf Virginia, frorn the victory of Ma
.assas; in .fs61, to' those ofSpottsylvanis and the
Wilderness, we should have been constrained at
IAst .to surrender the prize which our fanatical
foes have so-long striven to wjn. But, although
this be so, adld the day of the evacuation of
Richmond may be4ell termed a darik one for Ihe
Republic, it is mere fat.uity to suppose that out
great cause is thereby endangered, or that we
still have not the abfility to achieve apr iudepen
-d,ence. All that is required is, that, our Rulers,
our Generals, should rise up and meet like men,
the issues that are upon them,~ T he-Countay is.
unfortunately cursed with the presence, in thie
Executive Chair, of Mr. Davis ; but he occupies
[his seat by virtue, of the Constitution and the
Laws; and melangholy as the fact is, he cannot
te displaceld fvom the position he so unworthiiy
NN. He has the power, ho6wever, to afford us
some reli'4f by the selection- of Advisern, who can
command the respect of the people, and properly
administer their Departments, ,and now *is the
time and the occ'asion~ for him to do so. Let the
Secretary of Stat.e who has no higher pretensions
to statemanship than low cunnin'g and pettifegg
ing sgacity, be replaced by a man of high tone
and diplomatic endowments. *Let us have a See
retary of the Treasury who knows'something of
political economy and the principles of finanoe,
who can sum up accounts and' calculate without
making mistakes to the tune of millions, and has
other claims to merit, as a statesman, than dun
ning as a tradesman. Let us ,have a mian of comn
mon.sense and en.erg to conduct our Postal sys
tern, and\ot a Drone, like Mr. Reagan, who
seems to have bgen sleeDing for the -last three
moifts, and to be oblivious of the existence of
his fellow countrymen. Let us have an Adjutant
and Inspector'General, who understands t:he or
ganization of an Army, such a's the one we have
raised, and not an old fogy, bred in the school of
"Fuss and Feater," and who imagines that- the
rules agid systein of .warfare, suited for 3812~, are
adapted tp this. age ar4l this people. Let the
hordo'of worthless and incompetent officers who
have been thrust into phee by favoritism and
politica'intrigue, be relieved fromt positions to
which they are unequal, and4 let sucevss and hon
ors be the reward of the'brave and virtuous) not
of tho adheining and the corrupt. What we want
is brn,jfner. boldnesa, energy, commono *enre.
Let us have men who possess. these requisites,
and, from that day the glorious bamee of those
who would be free, shall be -borne a0i6ted:bjough
all tl trials we may hereafter. eniotfnfer,

O FFICERS and soldiers of the Seventh Regi
ment of So4h Carolina Cavalry, who are
now ab'sent without leave, are called tipon to e
turn without. delay to. their command.
Many brave men linger to prQteet-their safer
ing homes, or to engage the enemy upon thewr
wna soil. Cowards make the same exense; but
by remaining V.bsent from their pos in the army,
they weaken opr strength and postpone thq hour
f victory'and peace.
Soldiers must promptll return, orbepublished
as "deeerter," arrested as "deserters," and pun
ished as "deserters.":
The destMnction of raflroad, i& no, excuse.
Brave men wilt mikg their journey on foot, or oni
horseback, and rejoin their po?ts Of duty in the
trmy. It will be no.excuse to a soldier tht .e
is -doing duty in another command; this can only
be permitted by an order from'the- Commander
in-Chief-without his order it is a thilitall crime'.,
t is especially urged upon men to' bring with
hem good horses. Being dismounted will sot
obtain for them new furloughs, but trasfera to
