The Daily Dispatch: February 12, 1864., [Electronic resource], Visit of a British officer to Fort Sumter. (search)
rs. Maria Carter, charged with stealing lard, sugar, flour, molasses, and wearing apparel from Mrs. Susan Renson, was committed to jail to answer the complaint this morning. The same time was set for the appearance of Jno. H. Hines, to answer the charge of complicity in the transaction. Tom and Jim, in the employ of the Confederate States, were ordered twenty lashes each for stealing wood. Frederick, slave of Mrs. L. Fore, was ordered to be whipped for stealing a lot of timber from West & Bro. The charge against George Thacker, of using abusive and threatening language towards J. J. Morris, was dismissed, and the accused set at liberty. The surety for Jos. Maria, held to bail a few days since, becoming uneasy lest his confidence had been misplaced, and he would be compelled to pay the bond, declined further to stand sponsor for Maria, and handed him over to the law. The case was called yesterday by the Mayor, when other security was promptly offered and accepted.
The Daily Dispatch: February 19, 1864., [Electronic resource], The message of the Bogus Governor of Bogus West Virginia. (search)
The message of the Bogus Governor of Bogus West Virginia. --The Cincinnati Gazette publishes the annual message of Arthur R. Boreman, Governor of the territory called West Virginia. Of the number of men that have been furnished by West, Virginia to the armies of Lincoln, the "Governor" says: It may be seen from the Adjutant General's report that what is now the State of West Virginia has furnished 20,299 volunteers to the Government army during the present war of whom 19,146 were for three years, and 1,153 for six months service. If the time of the 1,153 six months men is so calculated that the State may get credit for them on a call for three years men, it will be seen that they are equal to 191 three years recruits; and thus calculated it will be found that up to the time of the last call of the President for three hundred thousand men, this State was in excess of all demands upon her of 5,028 three years men. This is a record, of which any citizen of the State should b

The Baltimore American, of Saturday, has the following notice of the capture of a railroad train near Harper's Ferry, by Cimer's cavalry. It says: The train which left Baltimore at six o'clock on Thursday evening reached Harper's Ferry about 11 o'clock, and moved on towards Martinsburg, having on board a goodly number of passengers bound West. When at Kearneysville, about nine miles beyond Harper's Ferry and ten miles this side of Martinsburg, the train encountered a pile of rails on the back, and the locomotive was thrown off, but going at a slow speed, no damage was done. As soon as the train was stopped a crowd of armed rebels, about forty in number, surrounded it and took possession of the passenger cars. They then went round and searched and robbed each passenger, commanding each to "stand and deliver" their watches,
Georgia Legislature. Milledgeville, March 15. --Mr. West introduced resolutions in the Senate yesterday declaring that the power to suspend the writ of habeas corpus was expressly granted to Congress, which, in case of invasion, was the sole judge to determine whether the public service requires it; declaring that parties guilty of the crimes stated in the act are not entitled to the sympathy of the Legislature, and expressing confidence in the President and Congress. The Judiciary Committee recommended the passage of the resolutions Mr. Keenan spoke last night, and Lucius J. C. Lamar is to speak to night, and A. H. Stephens on Wednesday night. Both houses have agreed to adjourn on Saturday next.

Movements on the Southside — Demonstration on Drewry's Bluff last night. When the enemy fell back from before Petersburg and Drewry's Bluff on Monday reconnaissances were made by our troops, and it was ascertained that they had gone back to their shipping at Bermuda Hundreds, and that the force threatening Petersburg south of the Appomattox had gone back to City Point.

on to keep the river open to Hampton Roads. We are very anxious to hear from Grant, but beyond the knowledge of a battle having commenced near Chancellorsville, have nothing definite. A negro refugee from Richmond came to us to-day, reporting that Lee and Ricketts had both been seriously wounded. We hear nothing from our cavalry expedition under Kantz. It is thought that he was too late to cut the railroad at Hicksford in time to prevent the mass of Beauregard's troops coming up. Colonel West, with his negro cavalry on the Peninsula, returned to Williamsburg, after frightening the rebels badly, and was sent out again. Another letter says: With Gen Butler and his Staff, I was privileged this afternoon to ride along our lines. The army has advanced on the Petersburg road, a distance of about eight miles, where it will remain for the night. Its left flank is protected by gunboats in the Appomattox, and its right by gunboats in the James. From Gen Smith's headquarter
under General Beauregard. We have some further particulars of the operations on the south side of the river. On Thursday night some infantry firing, caused by the Confederates throwing up some breastworks near the Yankee lines, which the Yankees resisted. Friday morning there was more firing between skirmishers, and about 10 o'clock a charge was made by our forces upon the enemy's breastworks, and the engagement became general along the line. Martin's and Clingman's North Carolina and West's Virginia brigades participated, and, although subjected to a gulling fire, succeeded in driving the enemy from his breastworks, and taking possession. We lost heavily. It could not well have been otherwise as the enemy's works were of the most formidable kind, and our men charged across an open field of some thirteen hundred yards in extent. The enemy were well posted, and, besides occupying an advantageous position behind their breastworks, had one or more regiments posted in a thicket

They coat Mr. Kidder $7) a head to land them in Boston. It will prove a poor speculation as it has turned out. But if they had taken his recommendation on the night of their arrival to enlist, he might have made himself whole and something more. The Irish citizens of Boston and vicinity, feeling indignant at the imposition practiced upon their countrymen, called a meeting at the Stack pole House to investigate the in the case, which was very ar
