hail arrived in the city during the night, and
had had nothing to cat since leaving Harris

their officers and everything else. They had
tach man a !af of bread stnek on his bay

carry their next meal, as they had no knnp
sacks, A blanket was lashed around the
todv, and some had what seemed like a
satchel hung at their side, which we tiok to
bo cither a ponch for cartridges or a place to
put a ration of meat. Others had no cart
ridge pouch at all, and on being asked, pull--ed
their cartridges out of their pockets,

man told us that he had been furnished with
no ration since Le left his home in Hunting
don. A number of companies from Schuylkill
looked as though taken fresh from the mines,
bands and face being blacked with coal
dust. Indeed all of them might be regarded
f.iiiiy as the great unwashed, whether com

for uniform, we did not sec the slightest pre
tence at it among any of these men.
One German company had not even arms.
K'veral companies had no drummers, and
there was one regiment so completely disor

be none, and ret there were over six hun

Hon. Lewia T. WigfalL
The following is an extract of a letter written
from Charleston to the New York (Black Repub
lican) Time : - ' -
Mr. Wigfall'a exploit was as gallant and cUt
alrous a any deed of modern time. Stationed
on Morris Island, wher be had been on foot or
in tbe saddle since tbe commencement of the at'
tack, he no sooner saw the second barrack in
flames and tbe Bag staff shot away, than be re
solved to make his way to tbe fort and persuade
Major Anderson to desut from a resistance man
ifestly so unavailing.
Despite the remonstrances of those around
him, he embarked in a skiflf, and, with three
negro oarsmen and a coxswain, pulled over to
the Fort II was scarce a hundred yards from
the hore, when they bailed to biro to return.
"The Stars and Stripes were again flying." He
literally turned "a deaf ear" to this call, and
pushed on, brandishing bis sword, to which he
had tied bis white handkerchief as a flag of truce.
From the batteries of Fort Moultrie balls and
shells were aimed at tbe skiff. The white flag
was invisible at that distance, and the boat, only
noticed when ncaring th Fort, if not Carrying
reinforcements, had no business there. A thirty-two
pound till struck tbe water within five
yards of her, and was followed by a shell which
came near proving fatal The Africans strained
every nerve to get under the lee of the Fort, and
the officers at the batteries, observing that the
boat never swerved from her course, inferred
that Wigfall mn$t hqtt been in it, thereby ac
knowledging his more than Palmetto reckless
ness and daring.
On touching th wharf, the eccentric volun
teer sprang ashore, and rinding the gate burst
open by the flames, made his way round to an
open port hole on the town side of the Fort,
through which, with the aid of a loose piece of
timber which he placed beneath it, he swung
himself from a protruding gun into the embra
sure. He stumbled, unchallenged, upon one of
tbe garrison, who did not know where Major
Anderson was. The fire was still raging, the
heat intense, and the smoke insufferable. Shells
were still exploding above, and from time to
time within the Fort, from the mortars on Sulli
van's Island. He worked his way up to a group
of officers and men, standing near a casemate
" Was Major Anderson there r" " No ! " Be
fore the party bad recovered from their surprise
at the apparition, Mnjor A nderson came up from
the quarter Wigfull had just left He saw the
sword and white handkerchief
" Whom have I the honor of addressing f "
"Colonel Wigfall, of (jeneraj Beauregard's
stiff."
" May I inquire your business with met"
" I have como to say that you must strike
your colors. Your position is untenable. You
have defended it gallantly. It's madness to per
severe in useless resistance. You cannot be
reinforced. You have' no provisions. Your
ammunition is nearly exhausted, and your fort
is on fire."
" On what terms do you summon me to sur
render?" "Unconditional. Gen. Beauregard is an offi
cer and a gentleman, lie will, doubtless, grant
you all the honors of war; but tpeeiuli gnttia."
" Well, I have done all that was possible to
defend this fort."
" You have. Haul down your flag."
' " But your people are still tiring into me."
" Hoist a wliitc one. If you won't, I will, on
my own responsibility."
A shell burst in the ground within ten paces
of them as they were speaking. Major Ander
son invited the Kx-Scnator into a casemate; a
white tlag was hoisted, the tiring ceased, and
what is called "the battle of Fort Sumter" was
over.
All parties concur that Wigfall's performance
was an act of bcrois.n nnd high humanity.
You know nil the details of the capitulation,
and have, doubtless, done justice to the delicacy
and generosity of the rebel general in requiring
no parole, besides according all tlio honors of
war to the gallant defenders of Sumter,
The Cost of the War to the Country.
This war is not going to be much of a drain
upon tlio countiy, for the reason that it will
send little money out of it, ns would bo the case
in a foreign war. A vast amount of money will
be spent by the Government and individuals, to
oc sure, but the country will not be poorer, for
it will not go out of it It Will only be put in
circulation among our own people. The "money
market" will not bo mada "tighter," but
"easier," if anything, than it was during the
season of doubt and uncertainty through which
we have passed. Indeed, we think it susceptible
of demonstration, that the country, as a coun
try, will make more money by the war than if
pence hail been maintained. 1 his, for the rea
son that the country is not spending any money.
or very little sending comparatively none
abroad for foreign purchases, and, by so saving
it, making as mucn as would nave otherwise
been spent.
.So, when our next crop goes into the market
all its proceeds will not be required to pay tbe
country out of debt on I'nitcd States and other
roreig!i account. Or course, that crop will go
to market Great Britain w ill have it, even at
the cost of a tussle with the feeble, distracted.
and impoverished power of Lincoln. The in
dustrial, and, to a di'grcc, tlio commercial inter
est of the North, are bankrupted. And how 1
A the hottest abolition journals acknowledge,
by the withdrawal of Southern trade. There
fore, what that country has lost, this country
has saved. The returns of the next crop, then,
not hypothecated as usual, will be added to what
we have already saved by not spending, and
money will be most abundant in tbe country.
This crop w ill scarcely be impaired, for, in the
midst of war, our non-combatant laboring class
will till the soil as usual.
The Mexican war cost many millions of dol
lars; and who made the money? The North
made all, except what the soldiers spent in Mex
ico for tortillat and affnadente. The North
flourished, throve and fattened on that war.
While the men of the South were pouring out
their life-blood like water on the victorious fields
of Mexico, the men of the North were filling
army contracts, and gloating over their columns
of profits in the safety of the counting room.
Some of the most collossal fortunes of the
North were accumulated, or founded, during the
Mexican war. JJi7 Adrtrtiter.
Stauch VERsrs Calomel. During the land
sales on the Sunflower river, a certain land spec
ulator, well acquainted with the country, was
doirous of Mulling the other bidders, and pro
ceeded as follows:
Some two days before he reached tbe Sun
flower district, he was observed to take a paper
out of his pocket, and sprinkle a white powder
from it, over the vegetables on his plate. ' The
curiosity of the crowd soon became excited at
this proceeding, and some one asked tbe old fel
low what he was at
"Well." says he, "I reckon 1 know more
about this Sunflower country than any of yon,
as I settled there once, and you fellows had bet
ter begin taking your calomel soon, a I do, for
if the fevers they have there once get you, good
bye, John!"
It ia needless to add that the other bidders
rapidly became disgusted with that region of
country, did not finish their trip, and left our
friend to the enjoyment of a very profitable
speculation, as well as of the vegetables and
t'arch, which be bad substituted fur the calo
mel. Statb bt thi Pkess. Never waa the free
dom of the Pre more necessary for the public
good than it is now, and if the people are wis
they will take care that freedom suffers no
abridgement A contemporary well say:
A free press is the foundation of all freedom.
It is the inspiration, as well as the recourse, of
true liberty. It is at once tbe shield and the
sunshine of popular tbongbt ; flinging off th
poisoned arrow of despotism, and making free
ana elastic, with genial warmth, the social and
political current of the cmnmnnitr. It is the
foundation stone and bell tower the very but
tress and flaj-slaff' of a free fabric.
To meddle with a free prr-wi shows not so
mnch iznoranre on the part of the meddler, a
truculent f-ar and wilful error. None bnt bla
tant cowards will prevent the free expression of
BDimon- and those w ho would not down or CO-
ieree a newspaper, proclaim to tbe world that
fhey fear if a power or iti truth.
