the community. The company mustered with full ranks, and, in addition to their imposing appearance, exhibited a proficiency in tactics which even the famous New York Seventh Regiment would find it impossible to surpass. They marched as far down into the city as the St. Charles Hotel, when they returned and entered the Capitol Square. On their way, they stopped in front of the Dispatch newspaper office, and saluted it with a "present arms. " After going through a variety of highly interesting and difficult evolutions on the Square, they gave a passing salute to the Governor, and returned to their quarters. The Richland Riflemen are from among the flower of South Carolina chivalry, all picked men, and admirable adepts with the rifle. They were the second to answer the call of the Governor to report for duty and proceed to Virginia, and will, we have no doubt, prove to the satisfaction of their comrades, when the tug of war comes, that their pluck is fully equal to their alacrity.
The Palmetto State. --The alacrity with which the gallant and chivalric people of South Carolina have responded to the call of their State and their country, is deserving of that genuine praise which must in future time be awarded them by the impartial historian. They must indeed occupy a high niche in the temple of fame, if self-sacrificing devotion to duty and constitutional right has its appropriate reward, either here or hereafter. They are now, as in the darkest days of the Revolution, the deadly foes of tyrants and tyranny. We are sure that no Virginian can see one of them here without feeling that he is indeed a friend and brother; if he feels a different emotion, then he is not of the manor born — in fact, is no Virginian. We chronicle to day the arrival here yesterday of another corps of South Carolina Volunteers--the Saluda Guard, Captain M. W. Gibbes, 80 men, armed with Minnie rifles; also a detachment of the Governor's Guard, in charge of Lieutenant Lenhart, (
North Carolina Legislature--message of Gov. Ellis. The Legislature of North Carolina convened at Raleigh yesterday. The message of Gov. Ellis is a straight-forward, patriotic document, worthy of the man and of the State. We give the concluding portion: 1. gives me pleasure to acknowledge the timely and important aid rendered me by the Governors of Virginia and South Carolina towards placing our fortifications on the seacoast in a defensible condition. I cheerfully reciprocated this favor to the extent of my ability, by sending to the Governor of Virginia a portion of the arms in our possession, and which could be conveniently spared. The Northern Government is now concentrating a large force in the District of Columbia, ostensibly to protect the seat of Government, but such a force cannot be allowed to remain within the limits of Maryland and on the borders of Virginia, without seriously endangering the liberties of the people of those States. If they be conquered a
enned in and starved into submission to the Government. And to accomplish this will not take sixty days. In every slave State, with the possible exception of South Carolina, the Union men are in majority, but oppressed and trodden under foot by the rebels. Do this, and in less than six weeks the Union men everywhere will be in png Army. Kentucky being almost pledged to cast her fortunes with her sister States, we include the last return she made:" Army Register. available South Carolina86,00020,000 Georgia18,00030,000 Florida13,0004,000 Alabama77,00032,000 Louisiana91,32460,000 Mississippi30,00020,000 Virginia143,15560,000 Kentucky89,0 our proportion of her quotation to services is not overdrawn. It is natural so suppose that Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama and the rest, could do as well as South Carolina. But then, observe the arguer, why not the Northern States have as many available men, in proportion? for three good reasons: First, granting that they coul
Virginia, expressed the opinion that he had never seen such material in the ranks, and added, that with such soldiers, defeat was not even a possibility, much less a probability. At the different railroad stations along the road through South Carolina large bodies of troops were waiting transportation facilities, all eager to march on Washington. On reaching Wilmington, N. C., a most animated scene was presented. The wharf was thronged with the appliances of war. There were piles of rounington, and on Saturday another of several hundred would leave. The scene along the line of the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad, in point of enthusiasm, surpassed anything which I have ever witnessed. The communities of Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina, compared with those of North Carolina, were tame and unconcerned. At every railroad station hundreds of the country people had gathered, and as the train stopped it was greeted with the most rapturous cheers. In almost every instance a
