The Daily Dispatch: August 1, 1861., [Electronic resource], Partition of territory in the Old Union. (search)
is tract of slave territory, which contained 239,558 square miles, the proportion between free and slave territory was at once greatly changed; for the free territory which had before the cession been but one fifth of the whole country, was by this voluntary act of a slave State, increased to more than one-half. The relative extent of the two sections now stood thus: Free territory, 409,220 square miles; slave territory, 398,458 square miles.--Of the latter, the States of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia conveyed 142,856 miles to the United States, on condition that slavery should not be interfered with; and upon this condition it was accepted, and since that time have been created out of it the States of Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi. Thus, it will be seen, that in the first partition of territory, it was freely and generously divided by the slave States with the free, the former giving up their preponderance of territory, and of their own accord putting the latter on

Lamentable affair --We learn that Capt. Charles H. Axson, of South Carolina, was killed last Tuesday evening, near Wilson, North Carolina, on the Wilmington and Weldon Railroad, by Arthur B. Davis, of the Second Georgia Regiment. The main particulars of the affair, as we learn from eyewitnesses, are as follows: Capt. Axson, en route for Richmond, was bringing with him some watermelons and fine tropical fruits, as a present to distinguished friends in Richmond. davis while intoxicated, cut open several of the melons and crushed others. He afterwards approached the Captain and offered as an apology the remark that he was drunk, to which the Captain replied that being drunk was no excuse for stealing. During the day Davis again approached the Captain, and declared that he was sorry for what he had done while intoxicated, and was willing to make any apology for it. The Captain replied that he was satisfied, shook his hand and joined him in a drink. --They appeared afterward
