I have given my own experience until October, 1864, but I know that the suffering was even more terrible during the following winter.

C., has placed us under the highest obligations by presenting the following newspaper files: Charleston Courier from May 1856 to February 1865. Richmond Dispatch from April 1861 to April 1864. Charleston Mercury from July 1859 to February 1865 and from November 1866 to November 1868. Columbia Daily Carolinian from 1855 to October 1864.

Our present number has been delayed by causes over which we have had no control; but we think that we
