Floyd, commanding the militia of Camden County, informing me that on the fourth day of this month three companies of negroes were landed in St. Mary's, who, after insulting the few ladies remaining there, and taking every thing they could lay their hands upon, retired to their gunboats withlty of the enemy. Joseph E. Brown. Mr. King offered the following, which was adopted: Resolved, That the Governor be, and he is hereby authorized to call out such parts of the militia as he may think necessary to protect the citizens of Camden County, and other counties on the coast similarly exposed, against the invasion being made by companies of negroes, sent by the abolitionists to make raids upon our citizens, and to continue them in service as long as the emergency may require.

ish look. The Negro is a fact-though not the fact of facts — in Georgia. Unlike Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina-States in which the Black element is stronger in number than the White-Georgia has a White majority of votes; yet her majority on the whole is slight, and her Negro population is so massed as to command the ballot-boxes in many counties. For example — in Baldwin County, Early County, and Sumter County there are nearly two Negroes to each White; in Baker County, Camden County, Columbia County, Effingham County, and Troup County there are more than two Negroes to each White; in Liberty County there are nearly three Negroes to each White; in Bullock County and Hurston County there are more than three Negroes to each White; and in Lee County there are four Negroes to every White. If all the Negroes in these counties held together, under the advice of carpet-baggers and with the help of Federal bayonets, they might set up Negro judges, sheriffs, and assessors, a

the man they ceased to wonder at the admiration in which he was held by the world. He was buried at Lexington, Va., where a monument erected by affection marks his grave. For centuries men will come to Lexington as a Mecca, and to this grave as a shrine, and wonderingly talk of this man and his mighty deeds. Time will only add to his great fame—his name will be honored and revered forever. Lieutenant-General William J. Hardee Lieutenant-General William J. Hardee was born in Camden county, Georgia, in November, 1815. After receiving a military education at West Point, he entered the army with the class of 1838, as a second-lieutenant of the Second cavalry, and was promoted first-lieutenant in 1839, and served in the Florida war of 1840. He was then sent to Europe by the government as a member of a military commission to study the organization of foreign armies, and in that capacity visited the military school at St. Maur, France. In 1844 he was promoted captain, and in 184

stols also, but with no damage other than slightly wounding a horse that was hitched about 250 yards from the edge of the bluff. Oar men fired from one to five shots each. One of them, a volunteer, a noted hunter and excellent marksman, fired five times, and each time selected his man — the one with the most brass buttons on, as he expressed it. After each shot, he did not again get a glimpse of his object. An hour intervened, when the boat was attacked again by Captain Lang's (of Camden county) company, who were similarly ambuscaded on a bluff about eight miles distant. One of the volunteers of Colonel Davis's mounted regiment shot both barrels of his gun, loaded with wire cartridges of "blue whistlers," or buckshot, into a group of four of the Federals on deck, about sixty yards from his position, and saw no more of them after he fired. A negro who had been a prisoner of the Yankees, and escaped from Amelia Island to the camp near Fernandina, states that he was made
Fight near Elizabeth City, N. C. Norfolk, April 20. --A large Federal force, supposed to be 5,000 strong, landed on the Pasquotank river, in Camden county, near Elizabeth City, North Carolina, yesterday, and were attacked by the Third Georgia regiment, Colonel Wright, and Captain Fennebees's militia company, at one o'clock P. M. Our force fought with great bravery. The Federal loss was heavy, Six Confederates were killed, including Capt. McComas, of Henningsen's battery, Wise Legion, and Lieut. Wilson, of the 3rd Georgia regiment. Sixteen were wounded and fifteen missing. The battle continued five hours. Col. Wright's forces retired from the field at midnight, and fell back to the half-way house on the Dismal Swamp Canal, a very strong position, and has been reinforced.--Our wounded have arrived here, and been placed in the hospital. Most of them were wounded slightly. The body of Captain McComas has arrived here.
an, and in case of the election of a rebel would arrest him if possible. The people have nominated M. L. Earl for the Senate and Lemuel C. Berbury for the House — both of them being Confederate soldiers now in the army. He arrested Jos. G. Godfrey at Pine Hill, and sent him off to Fort Lafayette. Nearly all the gunboats in Albemarle Sound have gone to James River.--The Yankees are running off negroes from all parts of the coast. About 600 have been taken, who fled from Currituck and Camden counties to their Yankee protectors at Suffolk and Norfolk. Thomas A. Jordan, James Freeman, James Wiggins, William Beeman, and five or six other prominent citizens of Gates county, have been arrested and carried to Suffolk. A body of 2,000 Yankees who had advanced to Pollocksville fell back on Monday to Newbern. Before they fell back they surprised and captured thirty-three of Andrews's cavalry and two of Turner's. Captain Northeutt's guerrillas ambuscaded the Yankees, killing three and capt
The Coast defence of Georgia --An Appeal from Gov. Brown to the Legislature--In view of the recent Yankee raid into Camden county, Ga., Col. Floyd, commanding there, has applied to the Governor of the State for authority to call out the local militia of the county for its defence. Instead of authorizing the calling out of the non-conscripts, Gov. Brown has made the application the subject of a message to the Legislature, in which he gives the Supreme Court of Georgia a blow for having decided in favor of the legality of the Conscript act. He says: Placed as I am in this embarrassing condition, when helpless innocence calls upon the State for protection, and when the Constitution of this State and the Confederate States seem to point clearly to the path of duty upon the one hand; but when the acts of Congress and the decision of our own Supreme Court, rendered under heavy outside pressure, and if not ex parte, under most peculiar circumstances; when the counsel on both side
