road, for I will not answer for the consequences where the army passes. The threats uttered in Georgia were sternly executed by the troops of General Sherman upon their entrance into this State. For eighty miles along the route of his army, through the most highly improved and cultivated region of the State, according to the testimony of intelligent and respectable witnesses, the habitations of but two white persons remained. As he advanced, the villages of Hardeeville, Grahamville, Gillisonville, McPhersonville, Barnwell, Blackville, Midway, Orangeburg and Lexington were successively devoted to the flames; indignities and outrages were perpetrated upon the persons of the inhabitants; the implements of agriculture were broken; dwellings, barns, mills and ginhouses were consumed; provisions of every description appropriated or destroyed; horses and mules carried away, and sheep, cattle and hogs were either taken for actual use or shot down and left behind.

nited States. General Moore was born at Coosawhatchie, Beaufort district, S. C., on February 25, 1837. He received his primary education at the academy at Gillisonville, S. C., and was graduated at the university of Georgia, at Athens, in August, 1856. Returning home, he was admitted to the bar in 1859, and began the practice of his profession at Gillisonville, then the county seat of Beaufort district. In June, 1861, he entered the Confederate service as first sergeant in Company C (known as the Beaufort district troop of cavalry), of the Hampton legion. This troop entered the legion carrying with it the same commissioned officers they had at home. Th; but he was back in the saddle in eight weeks and remained there to the close of the war. After the surrender he returned home and resumed his law practice at Gillisonville, and afterward removed to Hampton, where he has since resided. In 1866 he was elected to represent Beaufort district in the State legislature, and in 1878 was
f the Confederate States. One was a clerk in the Post-Office at Augusta, Ga., who, after his arrest, fully confessed his guilt in the case on which he was taken into custody. The numerous losses to individuals of money sent through the mails, occurring, apparently, at this important Office, have caused the Department much annoyance, and we trust that the guilty cause has now been detected and removed. The other case was the arrest of a mail carrier between Augusta, Ga., and Gillisonville, S. C. He was detected in the act of breaking open the mail, and, upon being searched, part of mail that had been rifled, was found upon his person. He confessed to eight distinct robberies, and gave information that may lead to the recovery of the valuable contents of many stolen letters. The business public and the entire letter-writing community will rejoice that these offenders are to be brought to punishment, and will also commend the zeal and intelligence with which the Special
The Post-Office Department. We were much gratified last Saturday in reading a letter written by a gentleman of the noble, gallant and patriotic State of South Carolina, to the indefatigable and eminently qualified Chief of the Contract Bureau of the Post-Office Department, Hon. H. St. George Offutf, dated "Anderson C. H., S. C., Nov. 4th, 1861." relating to a change of schedule on Route No. 5627, from Gillisonville, S. C., to Augusta, Ga., in which the writer unites with the citizens interested in asking for this change. We were so much pleased with this letter that we asked and obtained leave to take from it the following extract, which we commend to the attention of our readers: "This Route is 98 miles in extent, and service thereon has been reduced to once a week, supplying, nevertheless, one of the wealthiest sections of country in the Confederate States of America. I have recently passed over a large portion of the Route, and met many planters who seemed to desire th
