For the News. Whilst o'er our Sunny Country. Respectfully inscribed to the Ladies of Louisiana, by.L. B. WARD. tWhilst o'er.our sunny country, Grim War is stalking round, No sex.in.cts are wanting, But all in works abound. While men their arms are taking, And rushing to the fray. The Ladies ply their needles. To hinder all delay. No matterwho thesoldier, Or where his home may be, They hasten with their labor, When they his wants may see. They linger not a moment. They wish not to be free, They move their taper fingers. With great alacrity. They smile amid their efforts: They sing amid their toil : They bid us drive the vandal. From off our cherished soil. Who. then would desert them. Or leave them to the b~tnd, Whose path is desolation And ruin to our land. What heart is grown so callous, Or cheeks blush not with shame, When such a coward spirit, Is mentioned but in name. The Texan heart will ever, Those Ladies acts revere, Which were so kindly offered, Unto the volunteer. Accept then, dear ladies, The thanks of Moore's command, For all those favors to us While marching through the land. Noble's Nacogdoches Cavalry Company, May, 1862. THE ROAD FROM YORKTOWN TO WILLIAMSBURU.-I certainly had never conceived anything half so bad as the road from Yorktown to this place. It is of sandy clay-the read g;neraelly lying some three teet lower ihan the adjoining fields, and cross ing occasional streams which, when L iittle swollen., flood the road and "'o:vert it into a thick and sticky paste. The rains of the past few v-,',k have made this whr,le re.gion of ..:tntry .exceedingly soft' and miry, .i: tie passage over it of the supply :a.ins of the Confederate army for thel -'. s ,~:w months has cut up the roads t' , degree I should never have deem .1, possible. For a very large part .;'f the distance the mud was a foot deep on the level-while frequent holes and spots of quicksand let down horses and wagons twice or three times s as much farther. And over this interminable and unfatholn aile bog must be dragged all the ar tillery. All the ammunition, and all the tents and camp equipage, all the pro visions, all the foruge for hor,. - everything, in sholrt nfte ldd .for the conlsumption and subsistance of an ariIi of one hundred thousand men ! I wished most reverently at every step of the way that some of those who speak so glibly of the movement of an army-of tie duty and uincessi tyof dashing upon the foe without r.gard to the obstacles of which vul gar minds make ;u much, could go over this route and witness the almost superhuman eflbrts required to trans port the subsistauce of even a single! regiment.-11. J. RIaymond's letter to the N. Y. Times. The Shot and Shell at Fort Jack son.--A New York paper says that the United State.s Navy Department have received a chart showing the position and effect of eveiry .hot and shell that tell within the lines of Fort Jackson in the course of its bombard ment. As a whole, the drawing is said to resemble the face of a person convalescing after a severe attack of the small pox. It shows that all the scows and small boats near the fort were sank, except three small ones ; the drawbeidge was completely de troyed ; the hot shot furnaces were destroyed,4 the cisterns were dernal- t ished, all.the casemates and passages t were filled,w4tI-water, the levee hav- t ing been cut ; all the platforms for c tents were destroyed. by fire or shell; r all the casemates are cracked from r end to end; in some places the roof t is completely broken, and frequently < masses of brick have been dislodged. t Four guns were dismounted, eleven carriages and traverses were injured. The outer walls of the fort are crack ed from top to bottom, in several I places, admitting daylight freely ; I threethousand threehundred and thir- I ty-nine shells are computed to have been thrown in the ditches and over- i flowed parts of the fort ; one thousand and eighty shells exploded in the air, over the fort; one thousand one hun- i dred and thirteen mortar shells were counted on the solid ground of the fort and levees, and eighty-seven 4 round shot. Seventy-five hundred shells were fired altogether. The New Orleans Bee. has been permitted to resume publication as will be seen by the following apology of the editors and proprietors of said paper, gentlemen of whom we never would have supposed that they would humble themselves in such a manner to Picayune Butler or the Feds. Nsw ORLEANS, May 21st 1862. To Maj. Gen. Butler, Commander in GChief of the I ep't. of the Gulf : General-Our article of the 16th inst., in reference to cotton, was thought by you to have been "an elaborate, though covert argument in favor of cotton burning mob." We desire frankly to assure you. you were mistaken in its tenor. We have not intended, and do not intend to advocate the destruction of I cotton or other crops by the S.)uthern people. We believe it to be a barbar ous and wanton waste of property. not to be tolhrated by the civilized world. Very rtespectfully your obd't serv't . F. I & CO.

LolS.- rTho New SYork Tribune's St. Louis correspond ent writes: Local politics are assungig an in teresting shape. The chief contest ' will be upon members of the Legiela ture and members of Congress, and Ei the issue will be emancipation with expatriation, and emancipation with out expatriation. The secessionists remain quiet, and the old sham do mocracy will egg on the different fac P tions of the emancipationistsin hopes of slipping a semi-secessionist into d the seat now held by Frank Blair. v t The late demonstration by Blair in * favor of colonization, as a condition precedent to emancipation, has lost y I him the entire German vote, while t his course against Fremont has done . - him great injury with another class. The grand contest will be to commit L the Republicans of St. Louis to the - I Blair doctrine or its opposite. The t adverse party is gradually combining in favor of U. Gratz Brown, the old 3 line free soil Benton Democrat, who wrote Blair into political fame while I I editor of the Democrat a few years S I ago. Mr. Brown has writtena sfrong emancipatiol letter, in which he scouts the idea of colonization with force and ability. This letter has made him the representative man against Blair and the Blair doctrine. The r Germans support Brown, and their influence in the Republican party r may give him the noxminatioufor Con gress. Northern Sihpments to Southern Ports.-Wc learn from the N.Y. Coin mercial Advertiser, that some delay having been occasioned in the clear- t ance of vessels for the recently open Sted ports in the Sou:hern States by n the uncertainty as to what articles of .shipment might be considered contra C band of war, the decision of the Sec retary of the Treasury has been asked. t Pending his instructions Collector f Barney, of New York has concluded t to permit shipments, subject to the following limitations, which, however may be from day to day modified or extended to embrace other articles a..1 may require : "Anrms, nnammun: in. all articles entering into the' cm,Inpoi tion of powder and spirittuos liluo'rs such as brandy, gin. ruin and whis key, are declared contraband. la'h I ship or ve..se-l mav. hwever, take out as pa t tof its cargo a Iid'.rat., :nuttlllt- say tI tl barrels Ito ea:tc'i vts sel.--. irituouslii't.urs,as shi Stores.
