e no trade, and the countless millions of foreign products will be without purchasers. How long will they remain idle spectators of such a scene?

September 12th. The regiment left camp October 22d, for Newbern, North Carolina, arriving on Sunday, A. M., October 26th. I was with the regiment in every march, bivouac, and skirmish. The regiment had been in North Carolina but four days before General Foster began what is called the Tarborough march. We went to Washington, North Carolina, on the steamer George S. Collins. From Washington we marched towards Tarborough. I was in the skirmish at Roll's Mills, November 2d. We entered Williamston, November 3d; Hamilton, November 4th. We pushed on towards Tarborough by rapid marches, hoping to surprise the enemy; but on the morning of November 6th, General Foster, hearing that the enemy were in force at Tarborough, decided to retreat. His men were very much exhausted, his provisions almost gone, his force inadequate. He prudently withdrew to Plymouth, North Carolina. We left this place for Newbern on transports, November 11th. For a month we were in camp on the banks of the N

not go to Fayetteville, if at all, until 1825, and must have been fifteen years old that year, and must have lived in Charleston for at least ten years before he became Mr. Belden's classmate, unless it shall transpire that Mr. Belden really attended school with Judah at the old brick school-house in St. Michael's alley, Charleston. There is no doubt that Mr. Benjamin lived in Charleston, and went to school in this city. He told Mr. Levin that such was the case. Mr. B. C. Hard, of Williamston, S. C., who is still living, says that he was in Judah's class; that Judah was a very bright pupil, and quoted Shakespeare while playing marbles; that his teacher was Robert Southworth. Among his classmates, or school-fellows, were N. Russell Middleton, T. Leger Hutchinson, W. J. Hard, Mitchell King,——Wilson, B. C. Hard, Stephen Thomas and others—all for many years residents of this city. The Hebrew Orphan Society paid for his schooling. The store in which his father did business was situa<
Fight in North Carolina. An engagement occurred near Williamston, Martin county, N. C., on the afternoon of the 2d, between four companies of the 26th North Carolina regiment and a large force of Yankees, who had marched from the town of Washington to a point on the Roanoke river below Williamston, with a view of cutting off the 17th and 57th North Carolina regiments, stationed in that neighborhood. The four companies engaged were under command of Col. Burgwyn, and hold in check a largely superior force of the enemy during the day, and until the 17th and 57th regiments came up, when battle was offered, but declined by the enemy. Our loss is reported at two killed and thirty-one wounded, most of them only slightly. The enemy's loss is known to have been much greater, one entire cavalry company being out up and destroyed. This was the celebrated "White Horse" company, which has been a perfect terror to the people of Washington and surrounding country.

Outrages of the enemy in Eastern North Carolina. The atrocities perpetrated by the Yankees in their recent raid in Eastern North Carolina, perhaps stand without a parallel even in this war where all the rules of civilized warfare are disregarded by the minions of Abolitionism. A correspondent writing from Williamston, one of the towns visited by the Hessian horde, says that every grain of salt that could be found was either destroyed or carried off; medicines in private houses, in stores, and apothecary shops, were poured upon the ground; ladies, striving to retain a little of the property from which their male relatives had been torn and held in custody, were insulted and cursed by these malignant spirits; negroes, the dupes of Yankee barbarity, were cajoled away by thousands; a system of general plunder by the enemy, negroes and mean whites, prevailed wherever they penetrated. Families who fled in dismay at the approach of the invader, returned and found, as well as the few
deserve speedy and severe punishment. The letter, after describing a skirmish with the enemy on the evening of Sunday, the 2d instant, within five miles of Williamston, and stating that the troops bivouacked there for the night, proceeds as follows: The next morning, about half-past 7 o'clock, we again took up our winding way, and reached Williamston without further resistance a little after 11. This is a small town, having before the war from five to seven hundred inhabitants. We found it almost entirely deserted; one or two white men being all we saw in the place. Our halt here was about three hours, and at the end of that time the town was then disobedience or by the connivance of those who should have enforced the order, the town was soon, in camp language, "cleaned out, " even more completely than Williamston. Not only were houses sacked, and everything portable and desirable carried off, but valuable furniture dashed to pieces, beds dragged into the streets and bur
