Accepted the call. --The Rev. Dr. Walker has accepted the call to the Rectorship of Christ Church, in Alexandria, Va.
Thankful for small favors. The London Times is of opinion that the people of the United States ought to be very thankful to the British Government for taking General Walker off their hands and delivering him to the executioner. We suppose, also, that the arrest and detention of United States naval officers lately in Central America should form another subject of national gratitude.--But there are people who never can be made to appreciate a kind action. There are hard-hearted ingrates in the United States who, instead of overflowing with love and sensibility for these and many like favors, would actually rend and devour the hand that caresses and blesses us. We apprehend that if the people of the United States were a united people, and had the faintest conception of their own strength, England would be repaid in kind for every such favor as the Times boasts of, and repaid with compound interest. It is because the Governments of Europe cannot understand American forbearance, th
study or military tactics, and has devoted himself to it with great assiduity. He has commanded a company of militia at Wadeysburg for several years with such satisfaction to the men as to gain their warmest admiration By his zeal and proficiency he his upon several elected the highs at commendation of his superior officers. We congratulate , merely observing that I had been enough within the lines of camps to know what was my duty on such occasions. I subsequently was presented to Mr. Walker, the Secretary at War, who promised to furnish me with the needful documents before I left Montgomery. In his room were General Beauregard and several officers, engaged over plans and maps, apparently in a little council of war, which was, perhaps, not without reference to the intelligence that the United States troops were marching on Norfolk Navy Yard, and had actually occupied Alexandria. On leaving the Secretary, I proceeded to the room of the Attorney General, Mr. Benjamin,
r, need eventually the co-operation of our sisters through out the State, and therefore we would suggest that in every county and in every community societies be formed at once. Whatever amounts can be raised, let them be forwarded as soon as possible to our Treasurer, Mrs. Samuel M. Price. We will say in conclusion, that the most of those who may be wounded in any battle that may take place will be brought here; still, as already mentioned, we propose to send nurses and comforts to the different camps. You will therefore feel as deep an interest as ourselves in the success of this movement. We have the President's sanction for what we propose, and with your aid promptly rendered we may, by God's blessing, do a great deal for the bodily and spiritual comfort of those who may endure pain and suffering for us and our country. Mrs. Wm. H. Macfarland, Mrs. F. G. Ruffin, Miss. Catherine H. Myers, Mrs. F. E. Nelson. Mrs. H. B. Gwathmey, Mrs. Jno. Stewart Walker.
ird Regiment South Carolina Volunteers, 1,000 strong, reached this city yesterday morning between 6 and 7 o'clock, and went into camp near the Reservoir.

Baxter; Adjutant, Dravton Rutherford; Quartermaster, John McGowan; Commissary, Hampton Hunt. The Regiment--Co. A State Guards, Capt. Garrington; Co. B, Williams Guards, Capt. Davidson; Co.

ender of the city to the Yankees Our Mayor of Savannah is one of the right stamp; though I have not learnt that he designed any such extension of his prerogative. I have understood that the expressed his determination to fight the fire which General Walker had said he would apply to the city in a similar emergency — to fight it with water. The question has been discussed seriously here to fire the city in preference to leaving it an asylum to the legions of blood thirsty vagabonds that Linantage, then could result from the destruction of the city? None whatever, and the citizens of Savannah will be the first to defend their homes from wanton, ruthless destruction, from whatsoever source it may come. This has been ascribed to General Walker frequently, but I am not aware that the General ever expressed any such opinion. The discussion in Congress relative to the removal of Sidney Johnson from the command in Tennessee, does not find favor here, thought the President may succ
