nd. Part of the regiment was quartered in the old Moultrie House. Daily drills were still the order of the day. About the last of November, Companies B and G were sent down the coast about twenty-five miles to picket on the Edisto river. Company B was stationed at Willtown Bluff and Company G at Pineberry, doing picket duty on Jehossee Island. During our stay at Pineberry, our pickets on the island were fired at on two occasions, but no one hurt. Some mounted low country negroes on Edisto Island attacked our picket commanded by Lieutenant Higgins and fired a few shots one morning. One of their number was killed. On another occasion a party of the enemy came up the river in yawl boats and fired on our pickets commanded by Lieutenant Latimer. After a few shots were exchanged the enemy retired and left us alone afterwards. About the last part of January, 1862, Company B and G were relieved by other troops and rejoined the regiment on Sullivan's Island. During the winter Colo

Port Royal. This bay, which was destined to be of great use to the navy, was occupied at the end of November. The vessels which were sent to make a reconnaissance of it found the works erected upon its borders without defenders, and they penetrated as far as the river Coosaw, which empties its waters into it, without any difficulty. A few weeks after, the Federal ships made their appearance in the estuary called North Edisto River, situated between St. Helena Sound and Charleston. On Edisto Island, which separates that estuary from the bay of St. Helena, there were several fortifications and a camp of considerable size, all of which were evacuated after an insignificant cannonade. Thus, at the end of the year, Dupont's fleet, supported by detachments from Sherman's army, was in possession of the five large bays of North Edisto, St. Helena, Port Royal, Tybee, Warsaw, and the whole chain of islands which forms the coast of Carolina and Georgia between those bays. After the battl

I shall use all the power vested in me by the Constitution and laws of this State to prevent these deplorable results. Very respectfully, &c., Joseph E. Brown. Destruction of sea Island cotton. The Columbia (S. C.) Carolinian publishes the following interesting extract from a private letter: Edisto Island is nearly laid in ruins. Mr. J. J. Mikell, Mrs. Hopkinson, and Mr. I. Legare, have all burned their entire crops, negro houses, barns, &c., and, at a meeting of the planters, this has been universally determined on. The same spirit actuates the owners of all the Sea Island plantations. I fully expect to hear that the entire Sea Island crop of this State will meet a similar fate. None will be saved, for all is in the fields or gin houses; thus twenty thousand bales, the product of this

At least among the cotton planters there are none who dare play the Yankee, so far as to furnish them with cotton. On the contrary, let him who wishes to know what the cotton planters will do in an mergency read the following extract from a private letter, published in the Columbia Carolinian. "Edisto Island is nearly large in ruins. Mr. J. J. Mickell, Mrs. Hopkinson, and Mr. L.

York on Sunday. She is laden with arms, ammunition, salt, fruit, provisions, oils, tin, copper, saddles, bridles, and cavalry equipments, and is valued at $100,000. She was captured a few days since by the United States steamer Penguin, while attempting to run the blockade off the coast of South Carolina. At 6 o'clock on the morning of the 25th of November, the officer of the watch on board the Penguin observed a sail bearing southeast, and distant about seven miles, heading in for Edisto island, S. C.; the wind at the time was west southwest, and blowing very fresh. The schooner had her lower sails set. The steamer's anchor was weighed immediately, and all steam put on to overhaul her.--As soon as this was perceived, the schooner bore away before the wind, when a gun was fired to bring her to; the shot fell short, and no notice was taken of it. The main gaff top-sails were set, and every endeavor made by those on board the schooner to get clear off. At eight o'clock anoth
was expected to land 8,000 troops by Monday night. The Federal forces have destroyed the water pipes leading to the city. The piles driven in the river have been cut by the Federals sixteen feet below the surface. Twelve regiments are under marching orders to leave Port Royal on Monday, inland to the railroad, and thence to Charleston. Three regiments of cavalry are to join them. Two simultaneous movements were to be made--one to the railroad direct, and the other to the vicinity of Edisto Island. A large number of regiments are arriving at Port Royal together with heavy ordnance. Many buildings are being created at Port Royal, including a large hospital. Whiskey is selling at Beaufort and Hilton Head at eighteen dollars per gallon. The steamer Baltic was soon to leave for New York, with 630 bales of cotton. The breastworks across the island is nearly finished. An arrival at New York from Ship Island, with dates to the 23d ult., brings information of the capture of

But I have already transgressed the prudent longitude of a letter. Pens are like locomotives, however; they always required a mile or two of track to stop in, and a switching point is not presented at every paragraph.--Coming into the depot, however, let me add that everything here and on the coast is comparatively quiet. The Yankees make an occasional foray on the coast with their gunboats. A few thousand — three or four, probably — have landed on Edisto Island; nobody knows for what. A few tugs are at work pulling spiles in the approaches to Savannah, and an attack is apprehended there. A bombardment may possibly result and the city may be destroyed; but the Yankees can no more land in the face of our troops under arms in the vicinity, than they can take a comet.Persimmo
Capture of Yankees. Charleston, S. C., March 17. --Lieutenant Colonel Bennett, of the 51st Pennsylvania regiment; Lieut. Riley, of the 47th New York, and L. H. Wills, Federal Government Agent and cotton broker, were captured by our pickets on Edisto Island, on Sunday, and brought here to-day as prisoners of war.--They were riding in a buggy when captured.
