J. B. Jones, A Rebel War Clerk's Diary, XXII. January, 1863 (search)
Murfreesborough, to Alton, Ill., to retaliate on us for the doom pronounced in our President's proclamation, and one of his generals has given notice that if we burn a railroad bridge (in our own country) all private property within a mile of it shall be destroyed. The black flag next. We have no news from North Carolina. Mr. Caperton was elected C. S. Senator by the Virginia Legisture on Saturday, in place of Mr. Preston, deceased. An intercepted letter from a Mr. Sloane, Charlotte, N. C., to A. T. Stewart & Co., New York, was laid before the Secretary of War yesterday. He urged the New York merchant, who has contributed funds for our subjugation, to send merchandise to the South, now destitute, and he would act a°s salesman. The Secretary indorsed conscript him, and yet the Assistant Secretary has given instructions to Col. Godwin, in the border counties, to wink at the smugglers. This is consistency! And the Assistant Secretary writes by order of the Secretary of W

t, saying it is known that a number of these hands intend to desert the first opportunity. The last call for the clerks to return to the trenches was responded to by not a man of Capt. Manico's company, War Department proper. December 31 The last day of the year. Snowing and wet. Gen. H. Cobb writes that the existing Conscription Bureau is a failure so far as Georgia, Alabama, etc. are concerned, and can never put the men in the field. Wmn. Johnston, president of the Charlotte (N. C.) and South Carolina Railroad, suggests the construction, immediately, of a railroad from Columbia, S. C., to Augusta, Ga., which might be easily accomplished by April or May. It would take that length of time for the government to consider of it. It will lose two railroads before it will order the building of one. There is supposed to be a conspiracy on foot to transfer some of the powers of the Executive to Gen. Lee. It can only be done by revolution, and the overthrow of the Co

ciatedfor he sees affairs in a desperate condition, and he has much to lose. January 9 Bright, clear, and cold. It is said the government depot at Charlotte, N. C., has been burned (accidentally), consuming a large amount of corn. We have nothing further of the movement of Grant's troops. We have Hood's acknowleout of the hands of the enemy; and this operation seems to indicate that some fear of its loss exists. Some 40,000 bushels of corn, etc. were consumed at Charlotte, N. C., the other day. A heavy loss! Both the army and the people will feel it. There seems already to exist the preliminary symptoms of panic and anarchy in the gess — and in time — we might be saved. January 12 Bright and frosty. Gold at $66 for one yesterday, at auction. Major R. J. Echols, Quartermaster, Charlotte, N. C., says the fire there destroyed 70,000 bushels of grain, a large amount of sugar, molasses, clothing, blankets, etc. He knows not whether it was the result of

neral sends it back, saying 800 barrels of soap are now, and have been for months, lying at Charlotte, N. C., awaiting transportation! The speculators get from Charlotte that much freight every week.Charlotte that much freight every week. The Commissary-General says 800 barrels of soap ought to last Gen. Lee's army one month. It must be a large army to consume that amount of soap in a month. Yesterday Congress passed another bi retiring Secretary. The members of Congress reply with acrimony. The quartermaster at Charlotte, N. C., dispatches the Secretary of War that he has there some millions in specie, government fund to be marching northward, and to have progressed one-third of the way between Columbia and Charlotte, N. C.; where we had millions of specie a few days ago. Some of the lady employees, sent by Mress unpaid. This will soon rouse a hornet's nest about his ears! Gold is arriving from Charlotte, N. C., and I suppose from other places. Its accumulation here, when known to the enemy, as it ce

be lost. The negro experiment will soon be tested. Custis says letters are pouring in at the department from all quarters, asking authority to raise and command negro troops: 100,000 recruits from this source might do wonders. I think Lee's demonstrations on Grant's front have mainly in view the transportation of subsistence from North Carolina. Mrs. President Davis has left the city, with her children, for the South. I believe it is her purpose to go no farther at present than Charlotte, N. C.-rear of Sherman. Some of their furniture has been sent to auction. Furniture will soon be low again. It is now believed that the government will be removed with all expedition to Columbus, Ga. But it is said Richmond will still be held by our army. Said! Alas I would it not be too expensive-too much for the whistle? Shad are selling at $50 per pair. If Richmond should be left to strictly military rule, I hope it will rule the prices. It is reported that Gen. Johnston
