very man, woman and child of the South regard it as their duty to avenge these atrocities at every opportunity? Who knows the present condition or future fate of that bold, chivalrous Marylander, Thomas? How fares our noble Pegram, and a host of others, bold, self sacrificing and noble spirits? Their future is all shrouded in darkness and uncertainty! Reflect for a moment, if you please, upon these homes rendered hopelessly desolate by the premature end of a Dreux, Bartow, Garnett, Bee, Johnson, and many others. We should look well to it that we keep securely, and under the most rigid discipline, those upon whom we expect to retaliate the base injuries of these men, a part of them new prisoners of the enemy. We must, further, reflect that nothing has ever been gained by leniency to these depraved miscreants. What return has South Carolina received for the courteous treatment lavished with a bounteous hand upon the garrison of Fort Sumter? Nothing but the blackest ingratitude.
