the fortifications raised for the protection of the country. Fort Moultrie gave, at an early period of the inexperienced and untried valor of our citizens, immortality to the American arms; and in the Northern States numerous bodies of them were enrolled, and fought side by side with the whites at the battles of the Revolution. Let us now look forward thirty or forty years, to the last war with Great Britain, and see whether the whites enjoyed a monopoly of patriotism at that time. Martindale, of New York, in Congress, 22d of first month, 1828, said: Slaves, or negroes who had been slaves, were enlisted as soldiers in the war of the Revolution; and I myself saw a battalion of them, as fine, martial-looking men as I ever saw, attached to the Northern army in the last war, on its march from Plattsburg to Sackett's Harbor. Hon. Charles Miner, of Pennsylvania, in Congress, second month, 7th, 1828, said: The African race make excellent soldiers. Large numbers of them were with P

Warren had picked up whole companies of y, which, deprived of all direction, surrendered without a struggle. After a slight skirmish, Martindale had also accomplished his task, and was on his way back to rejoin his chief at Hanover, when hreaching the road, not far from the scene of the first fight, his heads of column fell in with Martindale's small brigade. The latter fought the superior forces of the enemy with great spirit, until eft the position of Beaver-dam, which he had so well defended the day before. The brigades of Martindale and Griffin of Morell's division, which had come the previous evening to take position alongsis division were thus disposed: Butterfield on the left, in the flat lands adjoining the river; Martindale in the centre, occupying the edge of the Powhite wood; Griffin on the right, deployed across t

day. Where? If I know, I would not tell. Will he find the foe? I am not sure that he will soon find him in large numbers. If he meats him, will he conquer him?--There is not doubt of it with such troops, so well armed, and with such ponderous masses of artillery, and led by such experienced officers as Heintzelman, McDowell, Franklin, Sumner, Hooker, Smith, McCall, Cassy, Doubleday, and their associates, who have seen service, and such recruits from civil life as Backs, Wadsworth, Martindale, Cochrane, and others who are eager to distinguish themselves, the grand army of the Potomac, whether its nominal board be McClellan, McDowell, or Hallack, or Fremont, or the President of the United States, (Its Constitutional Commander-In-Chief,) or with concert of action, even if it have no nominal head, will know no such word as fail ! Its weight is so great that if it be but let loose and precipitated upon the foe, it will grind him to powder. In a word, the army will move, and wi
The fight near Hanover C. H.charge of the 23rd North Carolina [correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch] Camp of the 2 th N. C. Volunteers, Near Richmond, May 30th, 1862. The city papers have already published imperfect accounts of a battle which took place near Hanover C. H., between a portion of Branch's brigade and the Yankees, commanded, as prisoners state, by the Federal General Martindale. It is not my intention to give in detail any particulates of this battle, except so far as the 28th North Carolina volunteers participated, which regiment was isolated from all other troops, and had no assistance from the brigade except one section of Latham's artillery. On the morning of the 17th instant, General Branch ordered Col. to proceed with his regiment and a second of artillery to Tallisferro's Mill, and at 10 A. M. the regiment moved off from camp in the direction of Hanover C. H. When we had reached the point at which the mill interfered the main county road, near t

It will, to a certain extent, bring the black labor on the extensive grain farms of the West, unless the existing stringent laws of some of the Western States, confining the negro to his present geographical position, are adopted in all the other free States. The recent slaughter near Shepherdstown — a lying account. A correspondent of the New York Herald, writing from Sharpsburg, Md., Sept. 21, furnishes the following: Between 8 and 9 o'clock yesterday morning Gen. Martindale's brigade, of Morell's division, Porter's corps, commanded by Col. Barnes, crossed the Sharpsburg ford, and formed in line of battle near a bluff, about a quarter of a mile from the ford, and directly on the bank of the river. They had scarcely done this before the enemy emerged in overwhelming numbers from a piece of woods, a short distance ahead, and commenced a galling fire of musketry. They then advanced in close column, and the Union troops were ordered not to fire, as it was our

The news from Washington indicates the immediate advance of Meade. All the able-bodied troops under the command of Gen. Martindale, the Military Governor of Washington, had been relieved from duty and ordered to the field, their place to be filled by the invalid corps. The 157th Pennsylvania had already left to join Meade. A telegram says: "It is reported that considerable information has recently been gleaned of the enemy's strength, position, &c., which will enable Gen. Meade to take active measures." The cars now run to Warrenton. Later from Charleston. Advices from Charleston to the 31st ult. say the

unces Hunter's barbarity in Virginia; and referring to the burning of Hon. A. R. Boteler's house, publishes the following letter of Miss Boteler: Shepherdstown, Jefferson County, Virginia, July 20--Wednesday night. My Dear Sisters: I suppose you will have heard before this reaches you that our dear, beautiful home is in ashes. Yesterday, just after dinner, Lizzie, her three little children and I, being at home, fifteen Federal soldiers of the First New York cavalry, under Captain Martindale, came with orders from General Hunter to burn everything under roof on the places of A. R. Boteler and Edmund J. Lee.--They came to us first, and in twenty minutes after their arrival it would have been dangerous to enter the house. Of the furniture, we saved two little rocking chairs and three other chairs from the porch. This is literally all. The barn, in which was stored all the hay, just cut; the servant's house and library, with the books, cabinet of minerals, valuable historic
g wheat throughout the State is a little below the average.--Corn promises well all over the State until it reaches points two hundred miles south of Chicago. Crop of cats, larger." In Ohio, wheat is below the average; corn rather better; oats decidedly a better crop than usual. In Michigan, it is known that many crops were burned, so that the average yield is considerably reduced. Miscellaneous. General Thomas F. Meagher has been ordered to report to Sherman for duty. General Martindale, of the Army of the Potomac, has resigned. The draft is ordered to commence in Ohio and other States, whose quota is not filled up, on the 19th instant. Several journals, formerly Republican, have declared in favor of McClellan. The Cincinnati Times and the Albany Statesman, both Republican papers, predict the defeat of Lincoln and urge his withdrawal.
