Charles City (Virginia, United States) (search for this): article 7
hat they were not able to continue holding on, that they must perish there, away from the cheerful fireside, in the chilly water, surrounded by every gloomy idea of experiencing a wretched death, with no eye of pity to look upon them in their hour of need. One by one the three were carried away, and their spirits took their fight from this life, leaving the friendship of their companions and all the busy world. The names of these worthy men were connected with the Southern Guards of Charles City, and were as follows: Robert Allen Pearce, Edward E. Haines, and Thompson F. Waddill, who was Lieutenant and acting quartermaster, a brother of Major George Waddill of the same body. The two saved providentially were Fleming Binns and Thos. J. Guy. These held on to the wrecked boat until Monday morning, being very much benumbed and unable to speak. Lieut. Waddill was dear associate of mine at an institution of learning in Lynchburg last year, and we have spent many pleasant

He was an honest and good man, a firm and decided tee-to taler, and known everywhere as the wheel-horse of the temperance cause. Among others at his funeral I saw the venerable Gen. John H. Cocke, of Fluvanna, another distinguished advocate of temperance. Both Mr. Brand and Gen. Cocke served the State in the war of 1812, and their sons are now in the service of the Old Dominion fighting for the Southern Confederacy. The Right Rev. Bishop Meads paid a visit to our town a week since; he appeared to be in good health, and, although advanced in years, his intellect is bright and vigorous, and his labors in his Divine Master's vineyard are as earnest and zealous as ever.

A sack of salt from the salt-works of Stuart in Washington county contains from 139 to 140 pounds, and this is called three bushels, and the moderate price asked and obtained per sack in this place last week was nine dollars.

A speculator who roams the State to buy and sell, if not a merchant is a peddler, and ought to be compelled to pay a license in every county where he transacts business. Will the Attorney-General give an opinion on this subject. It is reported and believed that Mr. Slaughter W. Ficklin, of this place, has been taken prisoner by the enemy. About four weeks since he left home, as an escort to the lady of Col. Tompkins, (the brother-in-law of Mr. Ficklin,) who wished to return to Kanawha. Mr. Ficklin, it is thought, under a flag of truce, passed into the enemy's lines, and cannot get back again. Should this prove true, it will be a source of great affliction to the relatives and friends of Mr. Ficklin. He was an energetic, persevering, far-seeing, and industrious man, and deserves a better fate and higher reward than the dungeon of some castle in Lincoln's dominions. Mr. Chiles N. Brand, one of
