A patriotic lady.

--Walking on Sullivan's Island towards Fort Moultrie, says the Pee Dee Times, our companion, the Major of the First Regiment Rifles, remarked:

‘ "Do you see that lady before us, the one in black. She is a noble woman. She cheerfully consented to the erection, in the rear of her house, of an enfilade battery, which was concealed from Anderson by the dwelling and the fine trees and thick shrubbery in front of it, and witnessed the destruction of her properly on the day before the bombardment with a smile. Anderson was not aware of the position of the battery until the balls from it raked his battlements. The lady refused to receive anything from the State for the property destroyed."
