--The Augusta Constitution. says:

‘ When New York, Philadelphia, Charleston, Savannah -- and Augusta, were in the hands of the British, our fathers did not succumb to the terrible power of their enemies; but, with an unswearing faith in the justice of their cause, they gained fresh order, and pursued the struggle for independence with renewed energy and an unfaltering devotion. Shall we prove ourselves unworthy sons of such noble sires? Shall we, with resources so much popular to theirs, with an army so much larger than theirs, with a population so much greater than theirs, falter for one moment in the defenced our authorise and our nationality? Shall we despond and be cast down because we have met with a hire and there? Shall we, the Freemon of become the hewers of wood and the of later for a despotic and implacable ... of the people, reduced in the of , must, like pair the brightens their high resolves must be removed upon the of their country's independence; their willing to bear suffering, to give all and risk for the Confederacy, must be re-firmed and made appointment of their acts of patriotic and devotion to the cause.
