But Gen. Sherman bas permitted ok
ly a limited quantity of supplies se
quired by his troops. A mistake
prevails at the North. of the preent .
inducemouets for commerce in Savan
nab.
There is not yet any large poptila
tion to be supplied for ciedit or mon
ey. No commodities of exchange,
and there an be no great amount for
a considerable period; all the cotton
andproducts now within Savannah
belong to the Government, as captur
ed property. Stringent regulatiens
against supplies that might go to the
army have been made and been en
forced by Sherman.
The cotton captured in Savannah,
of which there is a good deal of Sea
Island, has been turned over by the
Quartermaster, to Mr. Draper, Spe
cial Agent of thu Treasury. The
Quartermnastar General remains at
Savannah to execute the arrange-
mr.nts for shipment.

Sad is my heart, as the hourl roll by.
And lengthen to days that are heavy with
grief;
The future looms up on a tear-lale-n eye.
Which seeks in that fututre in vain tar

T'hotlgh nmemory brings from its glimmer
S ing shore
Full many a let:ssom of joy and de;ight.
t Yet tear tells the heart that its dreams are
all u'er.
Ani joys melt away that wereafragrant
aud bright.
Ai.tI fancy returns frnm its journey of love.

of despair;

Early in tlhe Anglo-Chinese war

.their battles-probably in the nature
oitf an invocation to their deities.
Aft.-r the battle, however, they cap

irc-tuiied tlhat tlt. eftTfect would be so
