ery Black Republican who is a dweller there. From the mountain-tops and valleys to the shores of the sea there is one wild shout of fierce resolve to capture Washington City at all and every human hazard. On the same day Governor Ellis, of North Carolina, ordered a regiment of State troops to march for Washington; and the Goldsboro (N. C.) Tribune of the 24th, speaking of the grand movement of Virginia and a rumored one in Maryland, said: It makes good the words of Secretary Walker, of Montgomery, in regard to the Federal metropolis. It transfers the lines of battle from the Potomac to the Pennsylvania border. The Raleigh (N. C.) Standard of the same date said: Our streets are alive with soldiers (North Carolina was then a professedly loyal State); and added, Washington City will be too hot to hold Abraham Lincoln and his government. North Carolina has said it, and she will do all she can to make good her declaration. The Eufaula (Ala.) Express said, on the 25th: Our policy at

of 1812. Charles, another son of the founder, removed to Alabama, and his son, Andrew B. Moore, became the war governor of that State in 1860. One of the daughters of the elder Charles Moore married Capt. Andrew Barry, who commanded a company in the Spartan regiment during the Revolution, and became known in legend and history as Kate Barry, the heroine of Cowpens. The estate settled by her and her husband is now the property of Colonel Moore. His mother was Nancy Miller, daughter of John Montgomery, a native of Pennsylvania and a soldier of the Revolution. The subject of this mention completed his education at the South Carolina college, and while a student there served with a miltary company of students called out during the siege of Fort Sumter, and again at the time of the capture of Beaufort. In 1862 he abandoned his studies in his senior year and enlisted in Company E, Eighteenth South Carolina regiment, and with this command went into the army of Northern Virginia, and par

On the twenty-fourth of June, the day of an eclipse of the sun, his boats passed over the falls of the Ohio. After leaving a small garrison in an island near them, his party consisted of four companies only; but the men were freeholders, each of whom had self-respect, and confidence in every one of his companions. Their captains were John Montgomery, Leonard Helm, Joseph Bowman, and William Harrod. An attack on Vincennes was the first object of Clark, but he learned that its garrison outnumbered his forces. In the north-west, Detroit was the central point of British authority. There Hamilton, the lieutenant-governor, summoned several nations of Indians to council; and from that post he sent abroad along the American frontier parties of savages, whose reckless cruelty won his applause as the best proofs of their attachment to B

The anecdote is told that on one Sunday morning the good doctor had given out the hymn, when it was suddenly discovered that the choir, amounting to some forty or fifty, had left their accustomed seats, and that no one appeared to sing a note. In the exigency, Mr. Rowson, with Gen. John Montgomery of Haverhill, N. H., who was then on a visit to the school, rose in his pew below, gave out the tune, and the heavy bass of the one, uniting with the fine tenor of the other, formed a powerful duo, which surprised and delighted the listening congregation. At the close of the service, Dr. Osgood tendered them his cordial thanks, and at dinner invited them to do the singing for him in the afternoon; but when the service opened, every member of the choir was in his or her place.
