went out with the tide one sad summer night, all contributed to the reality of this romantic life. When Porter's fleet appeared off Fort Fisher, December, 1864, it was storm bound for several days, and the little family with their household goods were sent across the river to Orton, before Butler's powder-ship blew up. After the Christmas victory over Porter and Butler, the little heroine insisted upon coming back to her cottage, although her husband had procured a home of refuge in Cumberland county. General Whiting protested against her running the risk, for on dark nights her husband could not leave the fort, but she said, if the firing became too hot she would run behind the sand hills as she had done before, and come she would. The fleet reappeared unexpectedly on the night of the 12th of January, 1865. It was a dark night, and when the lights of the fleet were reported her husband sent a courier to the cottage to instruct her to pack up quickly and be prepared to leave w
eir old Celtic language and songs. Distinguished above them all was Allan Macdonald of Kingsborough, and his wife Flora Macdonald, the same who in the midsummer of 1746, yielding to a womanly sympathy for distress, had rescued Prince Charles Edward from his pursuers, with a self-possession, fertility of resources, courage, and fidelity, that are never mentioned but to her honor. Compelled by poverty, they had removed to North Carolina in 1774, and made their new home in the west of Cumberland county. She was now about fifty-five, mother of many children, of middle stature, soft features, uncommonly mild and gentle manners, and elegant presence. Her husband had the graceful mien and manly looks of a gallant Highlander, aged, but still with hair jet black, a stately figure, and a countenance that expressed intelligence and steadfastness. On the third of July he came down to Fort Johnston, and concerted with Martin the raising a battalion of the good and faithful Highlanders, in w
intensity of fervor still more ardent than their patriotism. A large number of these soldiers and officers are, in time of peace, foremost in our community as lay preachers of "the everlasting Gospel." At 11 A. M., the standing crowd, mingled with ladies, citizens, children and nurses, from all that Horse-Shoe peninsula at the toe of which the camp stands, in a dense forest,) were called to order by the Rev. N. G. North, of Jefferson county, who announced the Rev. Peyton Harrison, of Cumberland county, as the preacher for that hour. The 46th Psalm (Luther's favorite battle Psalm,) was sung to Old Hundred. After a sermon on the "power of faith," Rev. Dr. Andrews, of Shepherds-town, made an exhortation, impressing the application of the sermon. In the afternoon, Rev. N. G. North preached from the words of Christ, in answer to the prayer of the penitent malefactor; and the services closed with a copious distribution of religious tracts and books, which were eagerly sought and carrie
