n his Siege of Savannah, gives their loss as four killed and forty wounded. But the Savannah Republican of Dec. 1, 1864, stated, Our loss was between eighty and one hundred killed and wounded. Our defeat lost us results which are thus summarized by Lieutenant-Colonel Jones: The victory at Honey Hill released the city of Savannah from an impending danger, which, had it not thus been averted, would have necessitated its immediate evacuation. As Sherman's army on November 29 was about Louisville, Ga., threatening Augusta, it would seem now that if our movements had been delayed a week, when Sherman was near Savannah, Hardee's whole army might have been captured, as the enemy then would not have dared to detach against Foster, and our force could have cut the railroad, thus preventing escape of the Confederates by the only available route. It would seem with the light of the present that our position was as strong for us to hold as was the enemy's. This granted, the natural critic

The Central Georgian, published at Sandersville, Ga., records the following instance of disinterested patriotism. If all merchants were like him, our people would not feel these hard times as they do: A few days ago a speculator in salt, of whom we have heard in several localities, visited Louisville, Ga., called on an old and well-known merchant of that place for the purpose of purchasing all the salt he had on hand. Not doubting but that Mr. B. would readily sell at the enormous price others were taking, (of course one man has as good a right to speculate on the necessities of the people as another,) the speculator asked at what price the salt could be had. "Our customers, sir, can have it at $5 per sack. You can have it at $25 per sack. Merchants Deserting Savannah. The Sa
