A. Rhett, Col. Comdg. Headquarters, Department S. C., Ga., and Fla., Charleston, S. C., Sept. 1st, 1863. Jno. S. Mcdaniel, Kingstree, S. C.: Sir,—I regret that you have found planters so ready with excuses for not furnishing labor to defend Charleston. May God grant that, in seeking to avoid furnishing a fourth of their labor at this momentous juncture, they do not materially contribute to the loss of the whole. If unable to find road commissioners who will loyally assist you in your duties, call on the planters to give you, in good faith, a list of their able-bodied male negroes between ages of eighteen and forty-fi
rgeant Wilkins of Company D for this field service. April 5, at 8 A. M., Potter's force moved from Georgetown, the First Brigade in advance, over the centre or Sampit road for three miles, when the column took another to the right leading to Kingstree. Marching through a heavily timbered country and encountering no hostiles, the division compassed nineteen miles, camping at nightfall near Johnson's Swamp. Hallowell's brigade had the advance on the 6th, preceded by the cavalry, the close, walry encountered a few of the enemy's mounted men, who skirmished lightly, and toward evening exchanged shots with them at Seven-Mile Bridge on the right, which the foe burned. Camp was made at Thorntree Swamp after a nineteen-mile march, with Kingstree across the Black River, seven miles to our right. An early start was made on the 7th toward the northwest, through a more open and settled country, containing still more abundant supplies, which our foragers secured, but, by orders, burned a

One stoppage was near the plantation of Mr. Wm. M. Kinders, about a mile from Kingstree. Here a portion of the train remained till the balance was taken to Cades' Station and the engine returned.

. Yours truly, etc., G. B. Lartigue. August 27, 1861. About the first of September the company took the train for Charleston, the most of them embarking at Kingstree. The men were all in high spirits. Joseph Ard, from the neighborhood of Clocktown, deserves special mention. Owing to a defect in his organs of speech, he couompany of very green men to drill (many of the company were recruits). A large number joined us, on our way down, from the neighborhoods of Graham's Cross-Roads, Kingstree and Gourdin's. Many of them I did not know were coming. They are mostly poor men, and will, when drilled, make good and self-sacrificing soldiers. They seem almmissioned officers, and eighty-two privates. They were, while in this regiment, designated as Company E. A relief society was started in the neighborhood of Kingstree for the purpose of furnishing to the soldiers in the field such supplies as they most needed. I wrote, on the 14th September, 1861, from Fort Johnson, a letter,

[from the Kingstree (S. C.) Star.]a Sketch.by Meta Idlewild. A group of lovely girls were assembled in the sitting room of Mrs. --? busily plying the needle, for they had determined on devoting a portion of each day to sewing for our brave soldiers, and the quick movement of the small fingers, the hum of the machines, and the attention which each paid to her task showed how much they were interested in their undertaking. I was attracted, particularly, to one of their number whom they called Clara. She was a slight, fair girl of seventeen, and without being strictly handsome, was yet so lovely, and had such a pensive look upon her countenance that my sympathy was instantly enlisted. When the buzz of conversation had continued for some hours a servant entered with the message, "Miss. Clara's Masant for her, Mas Willie's come," and in an instant "Clara's Willie has come," was echoed from lip to lip of the mischievous group until poor Clara was crimsoned with confusion Sweet gir
