ligion he is a Presbyterian, in which church he has long served as an elder. Thomas Thompson Moore, a prominent professional man of Columbia, who saw service in the Confederate ranks in his youth, was born at Newberry, in 1845, the son of William T. Moore, also a native of that place, who was a soldier of the Mexican war. During the earlier period of the great war he was pursuing his educational studies, begun at the primary department of Furman university and continued at Newberry college, tmarched with Hardee into North Carolina. Being recalled by Governor McGraw the cadets reported to the latter at Spartanburg, and were ordered into the Piedmont region where they operated against Stoneman's raid. After the close of hostilities Dr. Moore took up his professional studies and was graduated at the college of Philadelphia in 1867, and in dentistry in 1868. For almost the entire subsequent period he has been engaged in the practice of dentistry at Columbia, and has met with much s

omewhat discouraging to those who had fixed their hopes on a visit to the camp at the Central Fair Grounds. It commenced raining between 9 and 10 o'clock, and the air was chilly and disagreeable. The shower, however, was of short duration. The ladies, determined not to let a small matter interfere with their arrangements, assembled in throngs at the railroad depot, under the protection of their husbands, fathers, or beaux, and took passage for the camp. The First Regiment, commanded by Col. Moore, formed on Capitol Square at half past 10 o'clock, with the band and drum corps, and took up the line of march in the same direction. Carriages and omnibuses in great numbers went up loaded with passengers, and many persons, who couldn't "wait for the wagon," went on foot. On arriving at the Camp at an early hour, we were surprised to find a large number of spectators assembled. Each train contributed to swell the throng, and by half past 11 it had augmented far beyond the general e

The Minute Men are organizing, and will have 30,000 members enrolled before the 1st of January. A meeting of the leading politicians of the State, of all parties, has just-been held, and resolved to insist upon an immediate Convention. The citizens endorse-the action of their leaders. Gov. Moore has not yet reached Montgomery, but will undoubtedly recede from his first position, and call a Convention forthwith. No other course will satisfy the people. The Columbus Sun says: On Thursday a large meeting of all parties was held in Eufaula, Ala., and the crowd voted a unit for secession. A salute of fifty guns were fired in honor of South Carolina. --The day previous all stores were closed, and the citizens proceeded to bury the hatchet in honor of their release from all

Milledgeville, Ga., Nov. 15. --To-day the leading men of all parties, in conference, unanimously agreed to a Convention. They recommend resistance to Lincoln's Administration, the time and mode to be settled by the Convention. In the Senate, to-day, there was considerable

Every steamer from the North brings in heavy consignments of gold in payment for our cotton. The stream of specie thus pouring in upon the community, must increase in a steady ratio with the causes from which it originated. Its recipients will naturally re-invest it in cotton and rice, and thus we may expect soon to see our State in a position of unusual financial strength. Gov. Moore, of Ala., in his reply to a request of a committee of citizens for the call of the Legislature, says: In full view, and I trust a just appreciation of all my obligations and responsibilities officially and personally, to my God, my State, and the Federal Government, I solemnly declare it to be my opinion that the only hope of future security for Alabama and the other slaveholding States, is in secession from the Union. I deplore the necessity for coming to such a conclusion. It has

He has taken possession of Fort Scott and other towns on the border, near the Missouri line. He has murdered Mr. Moore, a grand juror, Mr. Harrison, Mr. Samuel Scott, Mr. Hinds, and obliged all the United States officers, including myself, to fly for our lives. His own expressed design, made in a public speech, as he said without concealment, is to keep possession of Fort Scott and other places near the Missouri line, to prevent a fire in the rear, while he cleared out southwest Missouri of slaves. So far he has carried out literally his declared programme. The citizens of Missouri, on the Osage and Mer
