Carolina City (North Carolina, United States) (search for this): article 1
jor Gladden received it from his hands and committed it to Lieut. Baker, who being unable, from debility and exhaustion, to carry it, Major Gladden placed it in the hands of Patrick Leonard, and led his regiment to the charge. His men fell rapidly, but not one wavered, from first to last, under the concentrated fire of the enemy. In the whole history of war there has never been a more striking example of indifference to death, the result of stern resolve. Each man fought for the honor of Carolina. Several companies were almost annihilated. Some had not men enough left to bury their dead, or bear their wounded to the ambulances.--The uniforms of some of the officers were literally torn from their persons; the color-bearers were shot down; but the flag, bathed in their blood, was always seized as they fell and borne to the front. Proudly it floated through the tempest of death until the victory had been was, and then, all torn and blood-stained, it drooped over its own glorious dea

e Revolution we take the following about the original Minute Men of this country: The Committee of Safety, in Virginia, appointed July 18, 1775, raised an armed force to defend the Colony. The Convention appointed Patrick Henry, Colonel of the First Regiment, and "Commander of all the forces raised for the defence of the Colony." He immediately summoned a corps of volunteers from various parts of the Colony. 300 Minute Men instantly assembled at Culpeper Court-House and marched for Williamsburg. One-third of them were Culpeper men, who adopted a flag with the significant device of a rattlesnake, as seen in the engraving. The engraving represents a flag, at the top of which are the words, "The Culpeper Minute Men," it the centre a coiled rattlesnake with crest erect, on either side of which are disposed the words "Liberty or Death" and beneath is the motto "Don't Tread on Me." The devices upon this flag, it will be remembered, are similar to those upon the flag first used by ou

the wishes of the people, and great deliberation, respectfully decline to gratify the request so politely made; but shall hold myself ready to act promptly when I shall believe the honor and safety of Maryland require me to act in the promises. With great respect, I am your ob'dt. serv't, Thos. H. Hicks. Nov. 27, 1860 South Carolinas in the Field. The Life and correspondence of Gen. John A Quitman is published. The following is an extract of the description of the battle of Churubusco: Colonel Butler, of the South Carolinas, had left his sick bed against the remonstrances of his friends to lead the Palmettos to the combat. Early in the engagement his horse was shot under him. Soon after he received a painful wound in the knee, and yielded the command to Lieutenant-Colonel Dickinson.--Taking the Palmetto flag from the hands of Sergeant Beggs, Dickinson placed himself in front, and Beggs was immediately shot down. Col. Butler new came up to resume the command, and

he South, &c,another letter from Gov. Letcher. The Enquirer of yesterday publishes a letter from Gov. Letcher to Lewis D. Vail, Esq., of Philadelphia, upon Pennsylvania's nullification of the fugitive slave law. Gov. Letcher felly demonstrates that the unconstitutional and obnoxious laws of Pennsylvania are still in full effecPennsylvania are still in full effect and force, and that, not withstanding Mr. Vail is "proud that he is a citizen of this good old State, the keystone of the arch, "yet he is lamentably ignorant of the legislation of his own State. After thoroughly discussing the legal points of the question, he says: And, finally, the Constitution of the United States, in its shall be delivered up, on claim of the party, to them such service or labor may be due." Under this provision of the Constitution, what is the duty of Pennsylvania and the order non-slaveholding States! Is it not plainly and palpably their duty to aid in giving full effect to this requirement When a person, held to servi

t. In conclusion he says: You speak, gentlemen, of Maryland's peculiar position as a border slave State. That position, between the extremes of North and South, seems, thus far, to have kept sectionalism from her councils, and to have inclined her people to moderate measures. But there are other border slave States as much interested in these questions as Maryland can be, which ought to be consulted before we take the initiative in this matter. I believe that neither Kentucky, Tennessee, nor Missouri has taken any such action. The Legislature of the great State of Virginia, which has been called together to take action as to her works of internal improvements, will have these matters under their consideration; and it seems only wise and proper to await the decision of our nearest Southern sister, rather than run the risk of clashing with her by hasty action — our people will not fail to act with boldness when it becomes necessary, because we waited with patience the true

rights from usurpation and outrage, yet dying cheerfully for that country in a foreign land — the world may learn that such a race, in defence of their own homesteads and institutions, can never be subdued! The original "Minute" Men. From Lossings' Field Book of the Revolution we take the following about the original Minute Men of this country: The Committee of Safety, in Virginia, appointed July 18, 1775, raised an armed force to defend the Colony. The Convention appointed Patrick Henry, Colonel of the First Regiment, and "Commander of all the forces raised for the defence of the Colony."

this city, who are regularly organized and ready at a moment's notice to stand by the State. Their motto is "Union," if it can be had with honor to the South; if not, they go in for Virginia first, the South next. The Ready Men are having daily accessions to their ranks, and propose to hold a public meeting in a few days, at which they will avow their sentiments and admit all who wish to sign.--They have made application for arms and accoutrements, which they expect to receive as soon as they are fully organized into companies, and have selected their officers. Their uniform is to be black pants, red shirt, (after the style worn by the Lexington Cadets at Harper's Ferry,) glaze caps a la militaire and white gloves, with cross-belts, &c.,&c. They are working warmly and systematically, under the law passed by the last session of the Legislature, and so quietly, that it was by the merest accident that even we, who are ever on the qui vive for news, found out the tenor of their ways.
