r modest taste. At the South, however, and under the beautiful influences of the institution, it seems to be different --a grave-stone being the great object of life with the faithful African. At least such appears to be the opinion of The Fayetteville (N. C.) Observer. The editor of that newspaper recently had occasion to go into a grave-yard, doubtless for purposes of moral reflection and philosophical study, and while there he actually discovered in the corner allotted to slaves, two marbe combination of merits in one lot! Whether the excellent cook, if dead, has a grave-stone, or, if living, a fair prospect of that ornamental remembrance to solace her stewing and boiling labors, we are not informed. Such stuff as this The Fayetteville (N. C.) Observer prints is always caught up by the dough press, and especially by the dough-religious press, and is paraded ostentatiously as if it really meant something. So far as it goes towards proving anything touching the slave system,

I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant, W. B. Cushing, Lieutenant, Commanding. Rear-Admiral David D. Porter, Commanding North Atlantic Squadron, etc. Report of Acting-Master H. W. Grinnell. Headquarters Sherman's Army, Fayetteville, N. C., March 12, 1865. Sir — I have the honor to report that I have this day succeeded in handing to Major-General Sherman the cypher dispatch intrusted to me by Major-General Schofield at Wilmington, North Carolina, on the 4th instant. I ral Sherman says: Without wasting time or labor on Branchville or Charleston, which I knew the enemy could no longer hold, I turned all the columns straight on Columbia. From Columbia, after making a feint on Charleston, Sherman advanced to Fayetteville and Goldsborough, while preparations were making by the Federal Generals on the sea-coast to effect a junction with his army--one body of troops to advance from Wilmington, N. C., and the other from Newbern. All the troops that had occupied

to desertions, and it afforded an indication of the rapid collapse of the military enthusiasm which had once prevailed in the Southern Confederacy. General Hardee attempted to impede Sherman's march when the latter reached the narrow territory between the Cape Fear and the Black River, but was able to effect very little, retreating as night came on towards Smithfield, N. C. On the 18th, the Federal Army moved on Goldboroa in two columns, the 15th and 17th Corps on the direct road from Fayetteville, and the 14th and 20th Corps on the road from Averyboroa. The former column was supposed by the Confederates to be a day's march in advance of the other, and it was therefore determined to concentrate all their available troops against it on the 19th. Then was fought the battle of Bentonville by the combined forces of Bragg and Hardee, with the object of crippling Sherman before he could effect a junction with Schofield and Terry, and the action was for a time so severe that it looked
r on the 29th, dispatches were received from various points upon the Macon road to the effect that General Wheeler had successfully checked the enemy at Latimer's, and was quietly awaiting developments. On our left, the Federals succeeded in eluding our cavalry, for a time, by skirmishing with our main body, whilst their main force moved round to the rear, and cut the telegraph lines at Fairburn and Palmetto. General Jackson, however, soon discovered the ruse, and marched rapidly toward Fayetteville and Jonesboroa, the direction in which the Federals had moved. The enemy succeeded in destroying a wagon train at the former place; in capturing one or two quarter masters who afterwards made their escape, and in striking the Macon road about four miles below Jonesboroa, when the work of destruction was began in earnest. General Lewis, within three hours after receiving the order, had placed his men on the cars and was in Jonesboroa with his brigade, ready for action. Meantime Jackso

Sir: After a forced march of incredible difficulty, leaving Fayetteville yesterday at 12 m., my advanced guard, consisting of Turchin's brigade, Kennett's cavalry, and Simonson's battery, ento going to Athens. The Ninth Brigade left Murfreesborough, Tenn., April 4, and marched thence, via Shelbyville and Fayetteville, to Camp Taylor Huntsville, Ala., arriving April 11; since which time the brigade has been divided and sent in differeston Railroad. The Seventeenth Brigade left Murfreesborough April 3, arriving at Shelbyville April 4, and left for Fayetteville April 8, remained at that point until the 14th, and received orders to proceed to Huntsville, Ala. The brigade, with t marched from there to Bridgeport, at which place it remained up to May. The Fifteenth Kentucky Volunteers was left at Fayetteville, as provost-guard, from April 9 to May 1.

The Federals were at Shelbyville on the 8th; they reached Fayetteville on the 10th, and marched into Huntsville on the 11th instant. Mr. A. J. Hopper is assistant superintendent of the M General Beauregard's army and operating in Middle Tennessee, reports that there is a force of the enemy intrenched at Fayetteville, against which he thinks he can operate successfully with the aid of artillery.

I fear the heavy rains now falling will render the streams between this place and Fayetteville impassable. I sent a courier at daylight this morning to meet the train, and in case the water was too deep to ford to have the train move to Athens, to which point I sent a locomotive with cars this morning. On the cars I sent a small detac I know certain. I have been very sick, but I am better. How is all the good people at home? Your obedient servant, J. R. Paul. Huntsville, Ala., May 4, 1862. dear brother: I got started that day you left at 3 o'clock and we got to Fayetteville that night, and I got through the next day and reported to General Mitchel. He has not put me to work as yet, but I suppose he will to-morrow. I told him a little about quartermasters, and he has relieved Bell and Hastings both, and at my su

They will cultivate a little corn, and possibly a few roods of potatoes, cow-peas and coleworts. They will own a few swine, that find their living in the forest; and pretty certainly, also, a rifle and dogs; and the men, ostensibly, occupy most of their time in hunting. A gentleman of Fayetteville told me that he had, several times appraised, under oath, the whole household property of families of this class at less than $20. If they have need of money to purchase clothing, etc., they obtain it by selling their game or meal. If they have none of this to spare, or an insufficiency, they will work for a neighboring farmer for a few days, and they usually get for their labor fifty cents a day, finding themselves. The farmers say that they do not like to employ them, because they cann

Georgia having given January 2, 1861. a large popular majority for Secession, her authorities immediately took military possession of the Federal arsenal at Augusta, as also of Forts Pulaski and Jackson, commanding the approaches by sea to Savannah. North Carolina had not voted to secede, yet Gov. Ellis simultaneously seized the U. S. Arsenal at Fayetteville, with Fort Macon, and other fortifications commanding the approaches to Beaufort and Wilmington. Having done so, Gov. E. coolly wrote to the War Department that he had taken the step to preserve the forts from seizure by mobs! In Alabama, the Federal arsenal at Mobile was seized on the 4th, by order of Gov. Moore. It contained large quantities of arms and munitions. Fort Morgan, commanding the approaches to Mobile, was likewise seized, and garrisoned by State troops. The steamer
