The Palmetto Guard, The Palmetto Guard received honors as the chief instrument in the reduction of Fort Sumter. The mothers, wives, sisters, and sweethearts of the Guard, said the Charleston Mercury of the 1st of May, contributed the sum of two hundred dollars for the purpose of presenting a gold medal to that corps.

Let them try Southern chivalry and test the extent of Southern resources, and it may float eventually over Faneuil Hall in Boston. Robert Toombs once boasted, in the Senate of the United States, that he would yet call the roll of his slavor of the Union.

At a public reception of Senator Douglas, Mr. Lincoln's opponent for the Presidency, at Chicago, Illinois, on the 1st of May, that statesman, in a patriotic speech, said:--There are only two sides to this question. Every man must be for the United States or against it. There can be no neutrals in this war; only patriots or traitors. . . . I express it as my convicti

He arrived at his home in Chicago on the 1st of May, suffering from inflammatory rheumatism. Disease assumed various and malignant forms in his system, and on the 3d of June he died. The funeral of Senator Douglas was an imposing spectacle. His body was embalmed, and it lay in state in Bryan Hall, Chicago, where it was visited by thousands of sincere mourners. It was dressed in a full suit of black, and, the entire lid of the burial-case being removed, the whole person was exposed. The coffin was placed under a canopy or catafalque,

She went from b
