must be remembered, too, that we are also embarrassed by the cutting off of many of our sources of supply, the fatal mistake of our people relying upon the North for the commonest articles of ordinary use coming home upon us now at the most inopportune time. It would be a most delightful coup to catch Abraham Lincoln, Granny Scott, and the whole brood of vipers at one jump; and doubtless many of our soldiers would commit the innocent mistake of putting bullets through the cranium of Sumner, Wilson, Lovejoy, et ideomne genus of non-combatants, who go upon wine frolics to Bull Run. It would be a crushing blow upon the North in European estimation, where the taking of a Nation's Capital is regarded as the most humiliating defeat and abject subjection. But we know that the mere taking of Washington, unless we could catch the vile leaders in one net, would not end the war. They would remove to some other location, and there concoct anew their damnable schemes. An immense army has be
Valuable Prizes. --The steamer Antelope reached this place yesterday, and brought here a detachment of the Washington Artillery, under command of Lieut James Salvo.

We also learn that a privateer has been chased into a harbor not far distant, after an exciting run of some hours.--Charleston Mercury 6th.
st Axson's breast fired, the ball entering, I think, the lower third of his heart. Axson fell, his left arm striking my right knee. I immediately took hold of him and examined the would, finding, as I before stated, that the ball had entered the heart. He only breathed twice, never spoke again, and died without a single gasp or struggle, in my arms. Davis never the first time, in my hearing, expressed a single regret, and I saw him occasionally until we reached Weldon; and before we left Wilson I heard him say often in a boasting manner, that he was the man that shot him, and he did not regret it; that he would do so again if it was to do over. I was a stranger to both parties, never having seen either until we got on the cars at Kingsville together. I have here given a plain, unvarnished account of the whole affair, as it occurred to me, an eye-witness, and am sure I have done so impartially, and feel sure that other gentlemen will testify nearly verbatim to the same. I can, if
