A Piece of Barbarism.--A chaplain in one of the regiments stationed at Roanoke Island, writes under date of Feb. 13: Two Massachusetts soldiers have been found in the woods with their throats cut, their ears off, and their parts cut out, and hanging on a tree — the work of rebels. This is authentic. N. Y. Times, February 23
Incidents of Roanoke Island.--Col. Russell, of the Tenth Connecticut regiment, fell dead from his horse at the head of his regiment, while marching against the enemy. Strange as it may appear, not a scratch was found upon his body when examined, and his death must have come from the wind of a cannon-ball or from excitement. Lieutenant-Colonel De Monteil, who volunteered in the assault upon the rebel battery, received his death-wound while heading the advance, and while in the act of shouting: Come on, boys! We'll show them how to fight! In the course of the action a shell burst on the United States gunboat Hetzel, and set her magazine on fire. Lieutenant Franklin, her executive officer, ordered the men to the magazine to extinguish the fire; but seeing that they hesitated, he took the hose in his own hands, and sprang down and extinguished the flames before they reached the powder. A similar occurrence took place on board the Ceres, from the bursting of a gun, when Acti
A Rebel song.--The following song, composed by some enthusiastic rebel soldier, was found in Fort Bartow, Roanoke Island. It is written on a half-sheet of foolscap paper: Sir William was king georges son to the north the waryers race was run he wore A star all on his breast to show you a sign of the waryers dress, come young ladies will you list and go, come young ladies will you list and go. A new silk dress you shall put on, to follow up the music fife and drum, the drum shall beat and the fife shall play, the drum shall beat and the fife shall play its A merry lives we'l march away. <*>new york.s A pretty place,; and so is philadelphia the streets are lined with doll. bills and pretty girls a plenty.

Col. Wardrop's Sword.--Gen. Hill, captured at Roanoke Island, has a sword belonging to Col. David W. Wardrop, of the Union Coast Guard. The sword, which was presented to Col. Wardrop by his friends while he was a captain, and is inscribed accordingly, was loaned to Theodore Winthrop, and was taken by Hill at Big Bethel. It is a pity that Col. Wardrop's wish to have a hand in the next tussle with Hill was not gratified. Several companies of his command were engaged in the affair.--Boston Journal.
from the Troy papers, where the Thirtieth regiment was mostly recruited, stating that he was disloyal, having deserted his comrades, and had gone over to the rebels. Determined to resent this imputation on his name, he managed to escape from Portsmouth, N. C., and made his way to Norfolk; but failing to get further North, he returned to North-Carolina, and was offered employment on the rebel gunboat Fanny, which he was forced to accept, and was employed in surveying inland waters for the rebels. In connection with another loyal man he obtained a small boat and managed to join Gen. Burnside at Hatteras. It was he who piloted the expedition to the landing-place on Roanoke Island, and in no small degree thus contributed to the great victory won by our forces. He joined his regiment, and then obtained a furlough to return to Gen. Burnside, first visiting his home in Lansingburgh, N. Y. His adventures were listened to with much interest at headquarters. Louisville Journal, Feb. 22.
Boston, Feb. 11.--At the Baptist Sabbath-School Convention in session at the South-End in this city, the exercises were interrupted this forenoon by the announcement of the splendid victory at Roanoke Island. The audience burst forth in applause, and a prayer of thanksgiving was immediately offered, in which all seemed to join with great fervor.
hese in any chronicle of the war must be the case of the gallant tar, John Davis, whose courage in the attack on Elizabath City, N. C., is made the subject of special mention by his immediate commander and by Commodore Goldsborough, who thus unite to make manifest the bond of true chivalry, which binds together all brave men, however widely separated their station. The following is the story of this brave sailor: Lieut. J. C. Chapin, commanding United States steamer Valley City, off Roanoke Island, writes to Commodore Goldsborough, under date of February twenty-fifth, noticing a magnanimous act of bravery by John Davis, gunner's mate on board his vessel, at the taking of Elizabeth City. He says John Davis was at his station during the action, in the magazine, issuing powder, when a shell from the enemy's battery penetrated into the magazine and exploded outside of it. He threw himself over a barrel of powder, protecting it with his own body from the fire, while at the same time p
Among the letters found in the rebel camp at Roanoke Island, was one from a young lady in the South to her lover in the rebel army, in which she says: I hope we shall see each other again here; but if we do not, I hope we shall meet in heaven, where there will be no Yankees. Cincinnati Gazette, March 18.
A brave Jerseyman.--A newspaper correspondent writing from Roanoke Island, says: The most remarkable case in hospital is a man named John Lorrence, of Gloucester county, N. J., a corporal of company K, Ninth New-Jersey, who had both legs carried away by a canister-shot, in the battle of the eighth ultimo. One leg was amputated by Dr. Thompson, Surgeon of the First brigade, and the other by Dr. Rivers, of the Fourth Rhode Island. The brave fellow had hardly recovered from the effects of the chloroform administered, when the wild cheers of the army told the story of our success. He raised himself upon his arm and with an enthusiasm which thrilled the bystanders, waved his cap in the air and gave three hearty cheers for the Union. Baltimore American, March 19.
T. H. Squire, Surgeon Eighty-ninth N. Y. V., in a private letter from Roanoke Island, thus mentions a most affecting incident: The daughter of Dr. Cutler, Twenty-first Massachusetts, of whom I have spoken in a previous letter, died a few days ago at Newbern, of typhoid fever. Her remains were brought back to this island and buried to-day. Who will write her epitaph in befitting verse? She was the friend of the sick and wounded soldier; educated, accomplished, young, beautiful, affectionate, patriotic, pious, self-sacrificing. In her death in the van of the army, a woman pure and lovely has been laid as a victim upon the altar of Liberty. She died away from home; a father whom she loved stood by her, but his duties to the wounded prevented him from accompanying her remains to their temporary resting-place on this beautiful island. Sacred be the spot where her remains now lie! Ye winds that whisper in the pines, breathe her a requiem! Ye grapes and mistletoe that climb
