From our exchanges we gather the following Southern items:
A movement is on foot, we learn, in Nashville
, to raise a monument over the remains of the heroic and lamented Gen. Zollicoffer
A patriotic friend in this city proposes to be one of a number to contribute a hundred dollars each, to make it a monument worthy of the man.-- Annville Reg.
The Bowling Green Courier
A friend writing us from Fort Henry
, on the 23d, says that they are busy there making preparations for a fight.
had landed at Calloway town, on the west side of the Tennessee
, some sixteen miles below the Fort
, to the number of ten thousand or twelve thousand men. The scout-boat ‘"Dunbar
,"’ which went down the day before to take a look at them, almost run afoul of one of the Lincoln
gun-boats hid under a point just above Calloway town.
They had a beautiful race from there back, but the Dunbar
beat her. She fired at the Dunbar
eight times without effect, then came almost within range of the Fort
, fired a few shots, and went back.
says that the appeal which Rev. Mr. Dickinson
of Army Colportage in Virginia
, has made to the citizens of Charleston
, has met with a liberal and cordial response.
Fifteen hundred dollars
have been contributed to this cause, besides an excellent horse, which was given at the mass meeting on Sunday night.
An army correspondent of one of the North Carolina
papers writes as follows:
lately made a scout to Burk's Station, on the Alexandria Railroad, leading from Manassas
to that place.
They accomplished little more than taking some negroes over to Alexandria
; some of them belonged to a brave Southern lady, who distinguished herself on Saturday before and Sunday of the battle of July 21st, when Cameron
, Loverjoy, Bishop McIlwaine
, of Ohio
, et al,
were then en route
to see the rebels whipped.
Although surrounded by Yankee hirelings, she made them desist from hoisting the Yankee
flag upon her place, and during the battle of the 21st stood upon the steps of her door waving her handkerchief at the report of every gun. This, too, while the Yankees
were all around her. She told them on that day, that they would return before the next much faster than they marched upon Manassas
, and remarked to the Surgeon
of the 3d New Jersey regiment, who was very fond of milk, that if he had time to call on his return she would treat him to a drink.
This promise she fulfilled, the Surgeon
having barely time to call for it.
On Monday after the battle, while the Yankees
were returning double-quick, she had her negroes cheering for Jeff Davis
and the Southern Confederacy.
All this was related to me by the Surgeon
above alluded to a few weeks after the battle, having come to my picket for some men of his regiment killed by our men when they were attempting to surround us. But I forgot I was giving you a history, when I only intended to give you a fact.
This lady, whose name is Mrs. Marshall
, went to Alexandria
to recover her negroes, when she was taken prisoner, and I expect now shares the fate of Mrs. Greenhow
