our noble army of volunteers have no distinguishing symbol from those at the North
;--alike in uniform, language, and complexion, they will constantly fall victims to mistakes.
We would suggest that, as in the wars of the Roses in England
, the white
flowers designated the different parties, so in our army the letter S, in the form of a metallic badge, about 2 1/2 inches in length, worn on each man's breast, would guard him in the skirmish or the battle from being slain by his own Southerners.
It might have inside a secret stamp or mark, to prevent it from being pirated by the enemy.--Charleston News, May 9
