THE GLORIOUS RECORD OF HER TROOPS. She not only Furnished More Soldiers to the Cause of the Confederacy, but Lost More Killed and Wounded in Battle Than any Other Southern State The Part Played by Them at the Battle of Gettysburg:, &c, &c. From the News-Observer.J Some little time since, in comment ing on certain statements contained in a speech I delivered before the Veter eran's Association of this county (Vance) on July 4th last, you said that you did not know the source of my in formation and would be glad to have it. The record made by the troops from North Carolina lor heroism on the battle-field and devotion to the cause of the Southern Confederacy, as asserted in those statements, was so far ahead of all the others of the South ern States as naturally to excite en quiry as to the correctness of those statements. In the last few days I have obtained a copy of a work called "Regimental Losses in the American Civil War, 1861-1865" by Wm. F. Fox, Lt. Col. U. S. V., published by the Albany Publishing Co., 1889. In his preface Col. Fox says: "The work is offered only as a convenient digest of official publications already issued by the General Government or State Military Bureaus. No statistics are given here that are not warranted by the official records. The work represents the patient and conscientious labor of years, days and often weeks, having been spent on the figures of each regiment." Of course, most of the book, about 600 pages, is taken up with the Fed- eral army and its several commands; but he devotes his last chapter XV to ! " uonteaerate mosses sirengtn 01 me Confederate Armies Casualties in Confederate Regiments, &c, &c." We compile the following facts from this chapter : Aggregate enrollrr.eut of Confederate Armies ubout 600,000 CO a 3 o 0) 3 o H e j-. 5 c 3 Con fed Losses, 52,953 N. C. Troops, 14,522 S. C.

Fox says: " Nearly all the Ala bama muster rolls are missing, and the above returns are incomplete but are compiled from the muster rolls on file in the Bureau of Confederate archives." To appreciate the force of the above statistics, I quote the military popula tion of above States in 1861. Virginia, i96587 Tennessee, ' i59353 North Carolina, 115,369 Georgia, nj.,005 Alabama, 9997 Texas, 92I4S Louisiana, 83,436 Mississippi, 7' 2 95 Arkansas, 65,231 South Carolina, 5546 lorida, i5t739 When we consider that the average oss in the Union armies in killed or mortally wounded and died of disease was only 8.6 per cent, of their total enrollment of 2,380,272 men, and then ascertain that North Carolina's oss in the late war was over 35 per eetit. of her entire military population j of 1 86 1, and South Carolina's loss of! over 32 per cent, one may well ex- claim, as Col. Fox does when stating the figures, " the result is extraordi- narv in its heroic aspect. j - Descending to losses sustained uy , . 1 1 : 1 i.. individual regiments, Col. Fox gives lkt of those Confederate regiments whose percentages of loss at particular engagements were so great as "to be remarkable." Says Col. Fox, page 555: "The severity of the losses among the Confederates, and the hero ic nersistencv with which they would stand before the enemv s musketry, becomes apparent in studying the of- ficial returns of various regiments. "At Gettysburg, the 26th North Car olina, of Pettigrew's Brigade, Heth s Division, went into action with an ef- fective strength which is stated in the regimental official report as over 800 men. They sustained a loss accord ing to Surgeon General Guild's report of 86 killed and 502 wounded. Total 588. In addition there were about 120 missing, nearly all of whom must have been wounded or killed, but as they fell into the enemy's (our) hands, they were not included in the hospital report. This loss occurred mostly in the first day's fight. The quartermas ter of the 26th who made the official report on July 4th states that there were only 216 left for duty after the fight on the first. The regiment then participated in Pickett's charge on the third day of the battle, in which it attacked the position held by Smyth's Brigade, , Hay's Division, Second Corps. On the following day it mus tered only 80 men lor duty, the miss ing ones having fallen in the final and unsuccessful charge. In the battle of the first day, Capt. Tuttle's company went into action with three - officers and 84 men ; all of the officers and 83 of the men were killed or wounded. On the same day and in the same brigade TettigrewY). Company C, of of the 11th N. C, lost two officers killed and 34 out of 38 men killed or wounded. Capt. Bird, of this com pany, with the four remaining men, participated in the charge on the 3d of Tuly, and of these, the flag bearer was shot and the Captain brought out the flag himself. This loss of the 26th N. C. at Gettysburg, was the severest regimental loss during the war, The next instance in point of nu merical loss is that of the Second N C. Battalion, Daniel's Brigade, Rodes' Division, sustained also at Gettysburg. "General bwell says Col. fox in a foot-note to page 556, "in his official reports, states that this Battalion lost j 200 killed and wounded out of 240 present." The next instance is that of the 6th Alabama, Col. John B. Gordon, at Fair Oaks, May 31, June 1, 1862, Rodes' Brigade, D. H. Hill's Division, which lost 91 killed, 277 wounded and 5 missing, out of 632 engaged. The next is that of the 4th N. C, G. B. Anderson's Brigade- of the same division and in the same bat tle ; it sustained a loss of 77 killed, 286 wounded and 6 missing out of 678 engaged. It will doubtless surprise many to learn that the two commands that head this "remarkable list are North Carolina troops, and that the record was made on thereld of Gettysburg. jn this connectwrWtwill do no harm to state tnat one 'North Carolina reg- jment, the 26th, had more men killed and more wounded at Gettysburg than were killed or wounded in any one of the three brigades, of five regiments each, that constituted Pickett's divis ion at Gettysburg. Also, that lacking ten killed, the four North Carolina ; regiments of Pettigrew's brigade lost 59j27 140,821 ! as many killed as were killed in Pick-'-fti ?t Lett's fifteen regiments ; and that the j two North Carolina brigades of Daniel and Iverson lost more men killed than Pickett's entire division of three bri gades of five regiments each, and that when the battles were over, and the retreat had to be made, General Lee selected two brigades of the much slandered Heth's Division to act as the rear guard of his army, viz: Archer's Tennessee and Pettigrew's North Carolina. Two brigades that had covered themselves with glory in the three days fighting, and were left but a mere handful of men to stand between the retreating army, and its pursuing foe ; and as if the Nemesis of battle was not satisfied with the blood already shed, the General of this North Carolina Brigade, was called upon to sacrifice his life in resisting the attack upon this rear guard. Marshal Ney, firing the last shot as he retreated across the Niemen, "the solitary rear guard of the Grand Army," is no sub limer figure than Pettigrew, after his magnificent three days fighting at Get tysburg, yielding up his life in defend- in? the rear guard of the Army of O w " Northern Virginia, on this, its last re treat across the Potomac. It is also established by Col. Fox's tables that the North Carolina Troops I not only head the list of commands that sustained the greatest regimental loss in any one battle, but also they head the other list, that of the greatest j percentage of loss sustained in any one battle I Rei jgimenta uaixie Division Per ct Heth's 86.3 Rodes' 83.3 Hood's 82.3 Ewell's 76.0 Hardie's 70.5 Cheatham's 68.2 Johnson's 6S.0 Longstreet's 67.7 Evans' 06.8 Evans' 66.2 2fith N.

Fox also says: "The rolls of the North Carolina regiments have been printed, and with the eight regiments of junior and senior reserves, show a total enrollment of 125,000." It thus appears that North Carolina furnished in the late war 10,000 more soldiers than her entire military population in 1 86 1. It is somewhat strange that facts, so glorious for the arms of North Carolina should be given to the world by a soldier engaged on the Federal side in the late war who has exhumed these treas ures buried in the musty archives of the War Department, and published them to the world in the4enduring form of a work of recognized authority. Fas est ab hoste doceri. . . To Capt. W. R. Bond, of Scotland Neck, Halifax county, all honor should be given for being the person first to call attention in his essay, "Pickett or Pettigrew," to some of the above sta tistics, and to many other matters equally as remarkable and creditable to North Carolina. Let others take up the story and continue it until nothing shall be left to be said either in defence or eulogy. Wm. H. S. Burgwyn. Henderson, N. C. IP WE COULD KNOW. TMrs. M. S.

Death of Gen. Hill. I Wilmington Review. 1 ipnt r.pn rianiel Harvev Hill. one of the most prominent figures of . . . r -. , the late war, ana one 01 tne most ga - lant of the many brave and noble souls who have made Southern valor and chivalry as immortal as the everlasting hills, passed quietly to his last long sleep in Charlotte, on luesday after noon, Sept. 24th, at the residence of his brother-in-law, Mr. J. P. Irwin. Gen. Hill was a native of York county, S. C, very near the North Carolina line. He was born in 182 1 a'nd graduated at West Point in the class of '42 with Gens. Longstreet, A. Stewart, Doubleday, Reynolds and others. He served with great gallan try and distinction in the Mexican war and was twice breveted. He entered the Confederate service as commander of the First Regiment and fought and won the first fight of the war, the bat tle of Big Bethel. He took a prominent part m the battle of Big Bethel, and led success- ively in the following engagements : Williamsburg, Va., Seven Pines or Four Oaks, Mechanics ville, Cold Har- ... . . bor, Malvern Hill, South Mountain or TSoonsboro. Sharnsbure and Freder- icksburg. After this latter battle Gen. 1 tj TT.ll r9Q transferrer! to the seat of war in the West. His reputation was gained at in the battle of bouth Mountain. He held the mountain pass at Boonsboro against the whole of McClellan's army from early dawn until the afternoon, when Longstreet and Hood came to his relief. The ghting at this point was terrific. At the close of the war Gen. Kill returned to Charlotte and published a ui m,;nB Th, TnnJ IV uiuuiuii .""pj 7 1 Love, which he was compelled to give up because of broken health. In . - 1876 he became President ot the uni versity of Arkansas and in 1887 he was elected President of the State Agricul tural College at Milledgeville, Ga. Because of feeble health he was soon compelled to resign this position and he returned to Charlotte. He was Wilmington last summer and visited Southoort. seeking relief. cr.-ii ,t-o- v,v,--iniar - Gen. Hill was Stonewall Jackson. He was married. to Miss Isabella Morrison, oldest daughter of the late Dr. R. H. Mor risson, in November, 1848. Mrs. D. H. Hill and seven children are still living. Gen. Hill's body was buried in the old graveyard, at Davidson Colleere. where four of his children 0 - were buried. In and About the Oxford Orphan j Asylum. From the Orphans- Friend we glean the following industrial items about the Asylum : - We have between 9,000 and 10,000 celery plants growing finely at present. One acre of beans planted about the first of September will, we hope, yield a bountiful supply of late snaps. We have put up four stacks of hay; and there is enough grass on the farm now to make five or six stacks more. We have dug upwards of 200 bushels of Irish potatoes and fully 100 bushels yet to be harvested.

The Man Who Doesn't Insure. One of our local insurance agents and Henderson has its quota, repre senting as they do the best foreign and American companies says this : I have discovered that the man wno refuses life insurance for the protection of his family on the plea that " Providence will take care of them" is first cousin to the fellow who crawled up the ladder when the bear appeared, and encouraged his wife in the fight which came off, by shouting lustily: "Go it, Betty; that's right ; hit him another !" He is the kind of man who borrows his neighbor's news paper, is a dead-head in his church, and sits by the fire and smokes placidly while his wife brings up the coal, lie nas won derful trust in Providence for somebody elsel The Plan for Advertisers. Number less schemes have been devised for the purpose of advertising. Millions of dol lars have been spent in trying to force the public to read advertisements against their will. These dodges are sprung upon them when they least expect them, and the effect is therefore annoying. It is as if a tramp should ring your front door bell and ask for the loan of a quar ter. Advertising in a reliable newspaper is different. People expect to see re mere every day. Advertisers, m aeaung wiwi the public, should remember that they nro a-ikinir favors : thev should do so in acourteou business-like manner. There ig a tjme ana piace for everything, and the place for advertising is in a newspa per: and the time every issue. Horace Greeley. The Testimony of One Who Knows.
