We intend soon to overhaul our
subscription list, and such as we find
have beu taking either the Daily or
Weekly News for six months, and
have failed to pay for the same, we
will erase from our list. Our terms
are strictly in advance, and though
we have been lenient, we cannot any
lunger be so. ,Icar this in mind, kind
patrons, and if you wish to have the
News make its visits as heretofore,
pa· y up," if you havn't got money,
brin its etuivalent,--corn, potatoes,
flou,-and we will he sat.isfied.
T ' baove has un reference what
ever to our city1 subscribers, who
take the paper annd advertise.
On account of our incapability to
.do anything, fromi the effects (et sick
ness, we. will not issue our paper for
a few days.

ten. M. Jeff. 'hompson arrived. 11C
in the city yesterday from Greenvillk 1
MIo., where his force now is.
We quote his own language whee Ila
we state that since the 20th inst. he T'
has fought five battles, and has only de
eighty men less than when he star
ted. How manay of the enemy he
has killed, we cannot say-but.Et i
supposed that ten times as main) in
will not cover their loss.
The manouvers in the campaign
Just gone through with will rand. k
among the most brilliant achievement:
of the war. It shows that elevel,
hundred men, after they had been
surrounded, eladeb the grasp of sev
en thousand enemies and made good to
their retreat, at the same time kill
ing almost as many as their own P
number. It has given Gen. Thomp
son a reputation not possessed by C
any General in the service. t
We are unadvised eo the move
ments of Gen. Thompson, but be
live he is here on business connectedtl
with his command. tl
Gen. Jef. Thompsou's Speech.-
This famous guerrilla chieftain, who ,
has been justly styled the Marion of a
this war, having been complimented
by one of the lady songstresses by 1I
a flattering allusion in the course of li
the entertainment at the theatre
last evening, favored the audience J1
with one of his characteristic spee- 1,
ches. lie stated that in the last k
month, his gallant little army of ,c
over 1000 men had marched over a
500 miles; had fought the enemy al- g
most every day; had killed over f
500 of them, more than had been dis
patched in that time by the whole
Western army besides; had accomn
plished all that Gen. Johnston had
sent it out to do, in its Missouri
campaign, and had come out witl,
more men than it had started with.

,r On this company being surlrised by
Capt. Coop wood's conmmnand, tley
laid down their anus and refused to
_ fight, declaring that thtev had cnlis
tted expressly and only to fight the
Indians. The men were sworn not

riey and discharged. 'l'he oflieers
were nmade prisoners oft war.
d Capt Coopwood's command then
i started on theittr return, with tlhe
Sprisoners; but they had gone only a
Sshort distance, when they were_ at
1 tacked by fiur companies of mounted
a regulars. After a sharp struggle the
Ac egulars were forced to retreat, withl
p a loss of 20 men killed, and were
Jr pursued several miles in the direction
a of Fort Craig.
· Fearing the Federalists ·would re

Sfinding ;a strong, natural position,
