isted, from the west. Sherman and Howard now rode in; Col. Stone having already taken possession and posted sentinels: the inhabitants moving fearlessly through the streets. During the day, the 15th corps marched through the city and out on the Camden road. The 17th corps did not enter it at all; while the left wing and the cavalry, crossing both rivers above, were at no time within two miles of it. Yet night saw that city in flames, and a great part of it reduced to ashes: hence, mutual accuome of these piles of cotton were burning, especially one in the very heart of the city, near the court-house; but the fire was partially subdued by the labor of our soldiers. During the day, the 15th corps passed through Columbia and out on the Camden road. The 17th did not enter the town at all; and, as I have before stated, the left wing and cavalry did not come within two miles of the town. Before one single public building had been fired by order, the smoldering fires, set by Hampton's

it had barely time to destroy the bridge after passing over it. In the march from Winnsboroa, the Fifteenth and Seventeenth Corps, which formed General Sherman's right wing, crossed the Catawba at Peay's Ferry; the left wing, consisting of the Fourteenth and Twentieth Corps, after destroying the railroad-track as far as Blackstock, crossed the river at Rocky Mount; the Seventeenth Corps crossed Lynch's Creek by Young's Bridge; the Fifteenth, moving farther to their right, sent detachments to Camden to burn the bridge, railroad-depot, and stores, and marched to Cheraw by Tiller's and Kelly's Bridges. The left wing was detained from the 23d to the 26th, in consequence of the breaking of its pontoon-bridge by a flood in the Catawba; and the right wing seems to have been as much delayed; probably by bad roads, produced by the rains that caused the freshet. Wheeler's division of Confederate cavalry, about three thousand effectives, and Butler's, about one thousand, all commanded by Li
y the thousands of people gathered on the spot. Frederick Kapp, Esq., the able historian and President of the Liederkranz, stepped forward, holding in his hand a superb steel-scabbard cavalry sword, of French fabric, also a belt and cartridge-box of gilt material. In a loud, manly voice, ho addressed the Colonel, the officers, and the regiment, in a patriotic speech, frequently alluding to the chivalrous deeds of Baron de Kalb, describing how that noble chieftain fought on the field at Camden, S. C., and how he fell, pierced by eleven wounds, in the arms of his adjutant. Mr. Kapp also deprecate ed the hireling system of the Hessians in furnishing warriors for the Revolutionary war of ‘76, and hoped that the De Kalb regiment, and, in fact, all the German citizens now engaged in this glorious cause of sustaining the best government man ever instituted, would wipe out the stain resting upon the escutcheon of the German nation, which the Hessians blurred in their fighting against liber
ur great and wise forefathers gave. Away the wild, delusive thought, A gift like this should prove for naught! 'Twas for no slight and transient grief In council met that patriot band; But long they bore; in vain relief They sought from “dear Old Mother-land,” Ere schemes of Independence laid, And gained it, after, by the blade. 'Twas for no small, contracted State, At Lexington that first blood flowed,-- At Valley Forge that shoeless feet Distained with gore the snows they trod; And that on Camden's burning plain Brave hearts withstood the iron rain. Shame not the memories of the men! 'Twas not for this that Henry spoke,-- Grasped Jefferson his cunning pen, And Washington his falchion took; That seven long years our grandsires bore The fortunes of a doubtful war. 'Twas that one glorious ensign still Should o'er one wide Republic wave, Whose deeds of peace the world should fill-- One nation, generous, just, and brave. 'Twas for one Empire of the Free, From Erie to the Southern Sea. Sco

I will then move either on Branchville or Columbia, by any curved line that gives us the best supplies, breaking up in our course as much railroad as possible; then, .ignoring Charleston and Augusta both, I would occupy Columbia and Camden, pausing there long enough to observe the effect. I would then strike for the Charleston & Wilmington Railroad, somewhere between the Santee and Cape Fear Rivers, and, if possible, communicate with the fleet under Admiral Dahlgren (whom I find aeral Foster the city of Savannah, to sally forth with my army resupplied, cross the Savannah, feign on Charleston and Augusta, but strike between, breaking en route the Charleston & Augusta Railroad, also a large part of that from Branchville and Camden toward North Carolina, and then rapidly to move for some point of the railroad from Charleston to Wilmington, between the Santee and Cape Fear Rivers; then, communicating with the fleet in the neighborhood of Georgetown, I would turn upon Wilming
about a demoralization of the army. The resolutions, as read, were approved by the whole assembly. Mr. Friedrich Kapp was then introduced to address the audience, who drew at length a comparison between Gen. Sigel and the German portion of the heroes of the American Revolution. The position of Gen. Sigel was nearly the same. They were treated in a like manner. Most of the foreign portion of the heroes of the Revolution. sacrificed their lives for the country. Gen. De Kalb fell at Camden, covered with no less than eight wounds. Gen. Sigel had a right to expect to be supported by his countrymen. He was, there was no question, one of the ablest and best leaders of the army. The Germans in Missouri had been persecuted ever since the breaking out of the rebellion, because they had remained true to the Union. Without them Governor Jackson would have succeeded in wrenching the State of Missouri from the Union. (Bravo.) The speaker alluded to the slave question and slaves as c
Springs, reliable information was brought in that the enemy's main column, reenforced by Ferguson's division, had left the Taylor plantation, twelve miles west from Holly Springs, and were yet moving south, having ten hours start of us. The pursuit was here abandoned, and our column, tired out by nearly two weeks of unceasing active service, turned back, and moved by easy stages toward Collierville and Memphis. It is known that, on the seventh instant, the entire rebel force was near Camden, Miss. It is likely they will remain there until they eat up the two hundred beeves they stole in this raid. There can be no doubt that if General Hurlbut's orders had been properly executed at La Fayette, Forrest and his whole force would now have been our prisoners. During the fight at Summerville, between the Seventh Illinois cavalry and a part of Richardson's troops, Colonel Prince, in trying to rally his men, became separated from the main body, and, after the regiment had cut its way
case before the Court, agreed that in their individual opinions the decision should be as it was made, I deem it my duty to submit the question to the General Assembly, who, as a coordinate branch of the government, represent the sovereign people of the State, and to ask your advice and direction in the premises. If you should hold that the Governor no longer has the right to command the militia of the State for the protection of her people, it only remains for me to inform the people of Camden and the ladies of St. Mary's that, while the State collects taxes and requires them to bear other public burdens, she withdraws her protection from them, and leaves them to the mercy of negro invaders, who may insult and plunder them at pleasure. Should you hold, on the contrary, that the Governor still has the command of the militia of the Slate, and that she has the right to use her own militia for the protection of our homes, I shall not hesitate to call them forth and so hold them in se
