can alone overcome this Federal ally that assails our real. Gen. Wise's Legion was not constituted like other brigades, he was required to raise his own command, and there never was one company assigned to him by the War Department. He recruited three full regiments and one battalion of eight companies of infantry, eight companies of cavalry, and four companies of artillery. And notwithstanding that he recruited and armed this command, one regiment was separated from it and sent to South-Carolina, without even the respect of consulting him; another divided and dissipated — his cavalry and artillery are now ordered to North-Carolina, and General Wise ordered to report at Manassas with three companies of infantry. If, by this order to report at Manassas, the Department mean to insinuate that any portion of the responsibility of the Roanoke disaster belongs to Gen. Wise, let Congress call for the correspondence between the Department and Gen. Wise, and the public can then decide wh

C., February 6, 1862. the helpless condition of the blacks inhabiting the vast area in the occupation of the forces of this command, calls for immediate action on the part of a highly-favored and philanthropic people. The occupation of a large portion of this area of country, on the seventh of November last, led to an address to the people of South-Carolina, briefly setting fSouth-Carolina, briefly setting forth the causes which led to it; its objects and purposes; and inviting all persons to the reoccupation, in a loyal spirit, of their lands and tenements, and to a continuance of their avocations, under the auspices of their legitimate Government, and the protection of the Constitution of the United States. The conciliatory and beneficent purposes of that proclamation, except in a few instances, have not only been disregarded, but hordes of totally uneducated, ignorant and improvident, blacks

ns' proclamation calling for troops and threatening conscription. State of South-Carolina, headquarters, March 5, 1862. The President of the confederate States, through the Secretary of War, has called on me, as Governor of South-Carolina, to furnish five more regiments for and during the war. Now, then, under this reqise higher with any and every disaster. In the war of our first Revolution South-Carolina passed through far more desperate trials. Under the guide of the God of bae thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, and of the independence of the State of South-Carolina the eighty-sixth. F. W. Pickens. Resolved by the Governor and Coate government, no person not now under orders, subject to military duty in South-Carolina, shall be permitted to enter confederate service for a less time than for t to devise a scheme by which all the arms-bearing white male inhabitants of South-Carolina, between the ages of eighteen and forty-five, shall be enrolled, as well th
The tree-tops bear the evidence of the way the shot and shells flew around. Large limbs were cut off, and tree-tops twisted in a hundred directions, as though struck by lightning. The woods in which the New-York Twelfth, the First and Second Michigan, and the Massachusetts First went down has all been cut away, and we can now see where the rebels had their artillery, upon the bank of Bull Run, behind a breastwork of logs and dirt. The Washington artillery, of New-Orleans, and three South-Carolina regiments, have been encamped near the Butler House for the winter, but started away some time ago. The artillery left a quantity of harness, etc. None of their tents were destroyed. Further down are the tents of a whole division, all pitched, as though the occupants had gone home to recruit and reenlist, but had not yet returned. The plains of Manassas are really what their name implies. The time was when there were objects which obstructed the range of vision, but they are all gon
Hurlbut, Commanding, etc. A correspondent writing from Pittsburgh Landing, Tenn, March twenty-first, gives the following account of this affair: On Sunday last Major Bowman, with about seventy of his battalion, reconnoitred westward, on the road to Purdy, and when about six miles out overhauled and chased a force of the enemy's cavalry, about one hundred strong, killing an officer by the name of W. R. Roper, and wounding several others. Roper is believed to have been a native of South-Carolina, and was in the rebel service at Pensacola, as shown by papers found upon his person. He was shot through the head, and died instantly. In this little encounter the rebels fled without firing a shot; consequently nobody was hurt on our side. The following night an expedition was started, for the purpose of destroying a portion of the Charleston and Memphis Railroad, in the vicinity of Juca, distant from this point some twenty-three miles, and thus cut off communication between Memph

II. For the convenience of military operations, and the administration of department affairs, this department is divided into three districts, to be constituted as follows: 1. The first, to be called the Northern District, will comprise the States of South-Carolina, Georgia, and all that part of Florida north and east of a line extending from Cape Canaveral north-west to the Gulf coast, just north of Cedar Keys and its dependencies, and thence north to the Georgia line.
