In less than ten days we will have here a fully equipped and determined army of 150,000 men. About the first of September next a blow is to be struck. A patriotic clergyman. Extract from a letter written by an Episcopalian clergyman in South Carolina, to his uncle in New York, dated July 18, 1861: "I need not say anything about the war. It is upon us, and if any reliance is to be placed in the threats of your people and the proclamations of your President, it promises to be a terrible war. As true as there is a God in heaven, the North will fail in its mad undertakings. We never will submit.

General: --With the general results of the engagement between several brigades of my command and a considerable force of the enemy, in the vicinity of Mitchell's and Blackburn's fords, of Bull Run, on the 18th ultimo, you were made duly acquainted at the time by telegraph.

In coming back, our steamer appeared to run so close to the enemy that we greatly feared for her safety, but were glad to see her ride defiantly by a force so much her superior in strength.

It has been freshly Hesper up and attended to by the kind hands of his fellow-soldiers, who live to scatter autumn flowers over his last resting place. Upon tree at the head of the grave is a board containing the following inscription: "The body of Thomas a Slaughter, who was killed in the charge made by he Alexandria Rifle-men up the Bull Run night, July 18th, 1861.--Underneath this is the line--"Here rests the brave."
