depth of 225 feet I selected a beautiful specimen of the rich ore to carry home with me. The quantity is unlimited. The yield of lead is equal to three tons per day, and the mines and furnaces are worked day and night, Sabbath included — the pressing wants of the service requiring it. The quantity of buckshot made per day would be equal to at least five per carcass of each Lincoln soldier now anywhere near to Virginia. Besides the mines referred to, I ought to mention the operations of Judge Fulton in manufacturing lead, one mile below the first named, and where he is making from one and a half to three tons per week. The are is inexhaustible, and the per cent. of zine with it, it is thought, will pay a fair profit to separate it, yet it has not been done. I called to see the copper mines of this region, now suspended, and mainly for the reason the ore must be sent to Baltimore to be extracted--(shame on the want of enterprise in Virginia, that we can't have a smelting establ
Confiscation of Georgia property by the U. S. Government in order to Coerce the State to return to allegiance. --The Atlanta (Ga.) Confederation, of the 16th, contains the following: On the 6th of April last, Mr. E. W. Holland, President of the Bank of Fulton, sent to the U. S. Mint, at Philadelphia, gold to be coined to the amount of $1,195.96. Mr. H. has long been a patron of the Philadelphia Mint — having sent gold there for coinage for the last thirty years. The following letter has been received in reply to an application for the coin. Our readers will see that the Fulton Bank will never get it, if it can be had only on the terms laid down by the Secretary of the Treasury: Mint of the United States, Philadelphia, June 29, 1861. Sir: --Referring to your letter of the 15th inst. to the Treasurer of the Mint. I have to state that the Secretary of the Treasury, to whom I submitted the question of the payment of the Mint certificate held by the agent of
igible point, has been selected as the site, and it is designed to construct forthwith spacious buildings and suitable machinery for the manufacture of everything pertaining to ordnance, such as carriages, chaises, caissons, harness, &c., &c., and also others for the manufacture of gunpowder. For the former purpose extensive additions are to be made to the Arsenal on the Sand Hills, some three miles from the city. We had an opportunity of inspecting, some days ago, in the office of Messrs. Fulton & Muller, engineers and architects of this city, who have the work in charge, the drafts for the new improvements. The machine works, when completed, will be 505 feet front, and 42 feet in depth. The central building will be 65 feet square and two stories high; the end wings 100 feet in length, 30 feet deep, and two stories high. Between these wings and the centre building, the gap, on either side, 190 feet, is filled with a range one story high and 42 feet deep. In the rear of this
An eloquent and Timely prayer. --Right Reverend the Bishop (Polk) of Louisiana, having set apart no special prayer to be used with reference to the present state of affairs, Reverend Dr. Goodrich, of St. Paul's, and Reverend Mr. Fulton, of Calvary, in New Orleans, have adopted the following sublime scriptural supplication, which was set forth, towards the close of the sixteenth century, by the Archbishop of Canterbury, in view of the great war then waging by Philip of Spain against Elizabeth of England. It has been slightly altered to adapt it to the present circumstances of the Confederate States: A prayer. O. Eternal God! In power most mighty, in strength most glorious, without whom the horse and charlotte is in vain prepared against the day of battle, vouchsafe, we beseech Thee, from Thy high throne of majesty, to hear and receive the hearty and humble prayer which, on banded knees, we, the people of Thy pasture and the sheep of thy hands, unfeignedly acknowledging T

illing him instantly. The act was committed in self-defence, at her house. Conway is well known on the river. He was mate of the steamer Milwaukee last season. On the 23d ult., Mr. John Bowers' gun factory, on Battle Creek, eight miles southwest of Springfield, Tenn., was destroyed by fire. Loss, $5,000. Mr. George S. Cameron, President of the Bank of Chester, S. C., and one of the best financiers in the Confederate States, has taken $50,000 of the capital stock of the Bank of Fulton, in Atlanta, Ga. James McInharnay died at Charleston on the 27th inst., from the effects of injuries received at the explosion of a rifled cannon at Otter Island a short time since. Dr. Lucius C. Fambro, a private in the Thirteenth Georgia regiment, from Upson county, Georgia, committed suicide on the 25th instant. The passport system is most strictly carried on in Poland. To get a passport to leave the country costs a Pole four hundred rabbles, which is about two hundred and
he Mississippians, Tennesseeans, and Louisianian suffered terribly. All the troops behaved most gallantly. Never did men fight better; and yet many of them were raw troops fresh from their homes. The 21st Alabama regiment took two batteries, and the 1st Louisiana a section of artillery. Other regiments did equally well. The battle was fought around Shiloh Church, the place of worship of the surrounding country, and will be known in history as the Battle of Shiloh. I write in Captain Fulton's tent, Quartermaster of the 53d Ohio regiment, which Gen. Beauregard has kindly assigned to two friends and myself. Captain F. was good enough to leave an ample supply of paper, which I have been using freely. The tent was perforated by twenty-one musket balls. It is now raining very hard. Up to sunset the day was lovely. The change is the result, doubtless, of the heavy cannonading kept up since early morning. The enemy is still throwing shells from his gunboats, and some of
House of Delegates. Monday, May 12, 1862. The House was opened with prayer by the Rev. Dr. Woodridge, of the P E Church. Mr. Crockett presented a communication from Judges A S Fulton, David McComas, Evermont Ward, and G D Camden deputed by the citizens of Southwestern Virginia to petition the General Assembly to use all his exertions towards the restoration of Gen. John B Floyd to his command. The communication called attention to the fact that Southwestern Virginia possesses more means for the successful prosecution of the war, in the shape of salt, lead, and iron, than any other section of country of its extent in the entire confederacy. How that this valuable region was threatened by the enemy, it is important that it should be well defended. The means of protection was already there — the mentand the leader — but that leader, General John B. Floyd, was deprived of his authority to command. The people were anxious for Gen. Floyd again to take the field and thousan
