Modest and unassuming, she does not force lierself upon the notice of the world at large conscious of doing her duty, she demands no extrava gant adulation for its performance; unassum ing and retiring, she .parades not the heroic deeds of her brave sons upon th'e many bloody fields, made famous by the daring of her sainted dead,- or her konored living. Before the ga of an envious sisterhood, she stands to-day the corner-stone of the fabric, the keystone of the arc. "Well may North Caro linians be proud to claim her as their .mother. Every acre of Yrrginia soil, upon which has been fought a battle, has been consecra ted try the blood of North Carolina's gallant sons. She has contributed her treasure and her blood unsparingly, in this cause, not so much to shield herself as to protect her sis ter states from foreign hordes; for North Carolina moved uot imtil forced to take up the sword against or for her southe.n sisters. Yet North Carolina has had the finger of sus picion pointed at her ; sho has been treated as unworthy of the trust of sister States ; she has been denounced disloyal and unsound, and that, too, by States, a portion of wnose sons have proved recreant to the trust re posed in them by her. ' . This treatment has caused disaffection in the State, jealous of her reputation, her sons have felt injured at the treatment sho has re- ceived ; and because of this jealousy --she is suspected of- disloyalty.! This suspicion is false and unworthy of our proud old State. i-rite is loj al to the core true as steel to the cause, but sensitively jealous of her rights, which it is her intention to guard against all and every authority that may be usurped for their destruction. Slirlt oi'tlic Troops. . -V gallant officer, just from the army of Northern Virginia, informs us that the spirit of the" troops was never better than at the pres ent time.

Avariciousxess Well Repaid. It seems that" avariciousness is not alone confined to on latitude, as the following scrap from his tory will show. But ift instance it met its reward, and we hope that it may in the other. The clove tree has grown in greatest abundance in Ternate, an island qf the Indian Ocean, belong the principal of the f oluceas, or Spie islands. In this island, hich has beanipng celebrated for its beauty arid health fulness, the trees grow in suqh plenty, that they, in some messure, lessoned their own yalue. For this reason tthe Outch resolved tp cut down the fcrc:tSj And thus to raise the pice of ths comaBs4ity. J3ut they soon had -reason to repent ol 4heir avarice 4 for such a change ensued Jy cutting down the trees that -tbe whole -island, from 1eing healthy and eilghul, baying -lost its charming shades, , become exlreerdly sickly, and has acjuauy conuauea bo tp iys aay f Effects or ids Shell.- A- correspondent of the Augusta Constutionalist, writing frpm Charleston, thus describes the effects of the bombardmen : v The Goti of justice reigns and from the daj when our flag was flung to the breeze on bumTer until now, the marks of his favor ben been unmistakable vx the preservation of the lives of the people, and in the success of our efforts for defence. The limited destruction of property by the protracted rain of sheila, ?s as wonderful as the small loss of life. I walked through the streets where the effect of the shells as most apparent. Here a. cornice is knocked off, there is a small round hole through -the side of a building, and at remote intervals the earth is torn where a shell ex ploded, and looks like the worker in search of some hidden treasure. Venders of the staples of the market sit serenely by their little stores, unmindful of .. . 1 1 l i . ! ll ' 1 r 1 the pyroteenmc salutations oi tueir xanicee deliverers. I bought delicious cakes and apples at one fourth the pjice charged two hundred miles away in the interior, where abundance and extortion seems to go hand in hand. Tn re ply toa question if she wre"e not afraid, one of these old wonien replied, "Lor Mars, we no feerd now we's usc'n to em. Dey make big noise and fro trash all tbout dat's all de good Lord pertects us.'r Thus is the re liant trust of thesf people cxemplied even in the spirit of this simple African. I confess that I tould not'feel thus indifferent to these missiles of 'destruction and as the' came screeching across the bay, I felt an instinc tive inclination to change my base of observ ation. Extending my ramble to other portions lb e to ottier portions J,fll -w, rr. W n.l sneii.-t vii c nei e anci of the city, the track of there tli seer n able, but they 1 " o- icy have not effected a tithe of the injury sustained by the great fire of two years ago, whose blackened out-, line stretches across what was "once tire heart of the city. In only two or three instances have fires been occasiond.by them, and then the loss was tihfling. In localities most ex posed to the shells the old tide of business i suspended. " Here and there a pedestrian moves hurried ly along, and the rattle of a cart qr dr:y is heard for a whole square. The blinds closed, vases of rare exotics droop and wither upon the lonely window stil, because there is no tender hand to twine or nourish th m. The walk glistens with fragments of glass, rattled thither by the concussion of exploding shells, and little tufts of bright green grass springing up along the pave once voc:d with the my riad tongues of busy tr;uh If this he food for exulation to the malevolent foe, he is wel come to the tender morsel. I do not mean to say that any part of the city is abandoned. Here and there stories are opened, machine shops are active, and labor i cident to the public defence is pushed vigorously forward, even in the most exposed districts. Still many branches of ordinary business, and. most oi the residents, are removed, because it wuld be fool hardy for those not impelled by sjiecial duty, to remain, The Mills House and Charleston Hotel those princely abodes of comfort and good cheer are closed, the Pavillion still 'invites the sojourner to its hospital roof, most of the ihabitutcs.of Ilayne and parts of Meeting and Kuijr streets abandoned the merchant cic.-vK for the cainn or transferred their wares to points secure fvoni Yankee guns. That part of the city to which the coward ly vengeance of the foe has not penetrated is "a map of busy life."

The Journal dc C"Hirc of the :ld ,ult., gives the following p'articuWs shotu the new Confederate cruiser Kappahnnor-k: For near two months past several voting" Americans had chosen Calais as a sojourn- uicy wereoi iri-eproacuaoie c-moucr, oesoem- , p . it, , ,t ing themselves as persons of refinement, cm- ploying themselves to study and asseiting that they had left the South to escape the conscription; we had already sever d of the latter. . ''Everything was progressing favorably, when last Wednesday these young Americans numbering thirteen, embarked aboard a fish ing boat fv Boulogne, with their trunks, etc., with the ostensive object of fishing in the channel. At a certain distance from, the port they proposed to the master of the boat to clango their course, aud put. them aboard a vessel they were to meet-in the channel. 11c refused, and not to be overpowered, lia.il ed'two other Calais boats at a short distance. The. three boats entered the. port together, the young Americans showing no resistance. . The news of this incident circulating in the town with many commets, as it is heedless to say, was indescribable, when, lot a steamer with -unknowing celors appears on the road stead. A boat leaves her and lands a seaman, who after a short stay in the town, re-embarks; finally, the vessel itself eaters harbor and is moored at the dock. " The vessel belongs to the Southern Confed eracy it is ascertained. She is a propeller of 70Q to 750 ton, and, from appearances, of great speed. From the looks of her snars and outward appearance, it is plain that she J still needs repairs, and that her armament is onv teinnorirv. From which conclusions are drawn, vf she left England in her pres ent condition there were good reason for her doing so, at the bottom of which one may diseern political policy, has had its share. Her captain, Ivtr. Campbell, - calls hey the Rappahannock. The following .is a descrip tion of her ensign: A white "held with a red union the latter having'a blue St. Andrew's cross anrl thirteen stars- equal to the thir teen States forming the Confedracy. It-is saiel the federal vessels are Crusinsr in the IJr.itisii Channel after the Happhannock; but with our lorg nights and a heavy fog it will be'etusy for her to evade them. These young men, our gue-ts for two months, are evidently the staiTof tluNRap pahanock. The Captain appears to be about thirty -ears of age; his officers not more than twenty to tvventv-feur. The majority- of them a ere in tho old United States navy, but on the breaking out of the war resigned, and east their lots with those of their section. That age? does not give experience of warfare, but often most lofty acts of heroism are er formed. Gen. Bonaparte was but twenty five when he made the lirst campaign of Italy. The Captain of the frigate Glory, in his five brilliant engagement oti the coast of Ireland with the English in 1798, -was but twenty nine. Imagination becomes inflamed with love of country and disenthrd-Iment of a,n odious yoke: hence it is not difficult to con ceive that these young Americans, 'finding themselves similarly situated as their farthers were in 1776, will battle fiercely with their brothers of yesterday, but to-day enemies. "We are told that orders have been received from Paris to give the Rappahannook full liberty as to her movement. The vessel is from Sheerness. The Memphis Bulletin of the 11 & con tains nothing interesting except great com plaints against guerillas, A New York dispatch of the 22 says Farragut will leave in a few days for below ,wjih a fleet of cine small draught gunboats.
