In regard to the manner in wNch
these troops are armed, a few words
may not be dut of place. The notion
that the rebel troops are armed in a man
ner inferior to bur own has been at
length exploded. That statement was
persistently made, however, until the
various conflicts in Tbich they have
been engaged dispelled the lli&sion.
AN APPEAL TO THE PATf&dtlC.
A Military College fur OrpTih'ns-
'ON THE DAY last appointed by the
President of 'ihe Confederate . Statss as a
day of Thanksgiving to Almighty God for
His blessings upon oitr arms, a few gentle
men in the Town of Wilson, North Caroli
na subscribfed 'oVSr $5,000 (since in-creased
to over $8,000) as the begvfvfctng of a fund
to fee not less than $8,000) as the Tbegi li
ning of a fund to 'be Hot lesslthan $100,-,
C60, to be devoted to the endowment of a
Military College in WRson, N. C., for the
education of the orphan "boyB fef sch sol
diers as haYe fallen, Cr may hereaftdr fall,
in defence of the Confederacy. Tire plan
so far as matured is as follows-':
1. Not more than one-fifth of the amount
obtained is to be devoted to the purchase
ef buildings for the opening of the College.
Ample arrangementa have been made to
secure suitable property on tf'ese terms.
2. The balance of the fund is to be in
vested in Bocuie safe and profitable man
ner, the principal never to be invaded
and the interest to be devoted to the sup
port and education of orphan Cadets.
8. The mstitutron is to'Cwicbine the char
acteristics -of a thorough 'Collegiate and a
'thorough military tfoiirse, and is to receive
ipaytng Cadets on termVttTsnal m Military
Academies, and all the profits Trotn this
"department are to -go to swell the endow
ment "firad, and thus increase the capabili
ties of the College to eutrta'te orphans.
4. The tn-st fund of $100,000 is to Vb
obtained as follows. Every geritle'iaan ma
king a donation of $50 or more, is thereby
to faeco'me a Trustee of the College, and to
have one VofC in the Board for every $50giv
en by him to this f uif5. It is apparent that
this at ance secures the College from evct
becoming settarion or se'etiona). Any lady
making a donation of $50 or more, may
designate some gentleman as Trustee t6
renrescn't IM amount. The donations tfeay
be made in bonds of five eqtal afaounts,
payable ticnually, and beati-ng iuteVeVt
from January 1-, V883. Thus : u gentle

Jan'y 1, 1868, alf bearing interest fr6m
.JanV 1, 3 868. This is a donation of $1,-

the Amounts received therefrom
,6. Any individual contribiting $,500,
shall have the designation 6f one orphan
cadet, to rtieeiv the benefit of this fund
during the donor's lift.
7. When there shall be ho longer any
claim upon the fund in behalf of orphans

Confederacy, other orphans shall receiVe

This, fellow-citizens, is the enterprise

is a patriotic project;
The College will train accomplished sol
