he w ho had never before, during the peudcuce of a
war of three years' duration, heard ''bullets whis

his capacity as a leader has ever been above sus-pici-m

the railroad, the enemy's extreme left, this side of
Petersburg. Here Ihe Yankees were driven back,
and on Friday nloruiiig, when Lieut, llokc passed
iuir (he battle Held, the enemy's lef! was within
about half a mile of the road, and lighting was go
ing on along tho wliolu line.
(Jen. I.eo was in Petersburg ami directed the npe
mtiuns of the entire army and tho citizens, officers
and solciers were cool, conlident, sanguine and itc
teriiiiiicd. I, lent. II. assures us that no fears of a
defeat were felt by any one, and that tho army was
never in better spirits or moro sanguine.
In the light on Wednesday, some siege guns that
had been planted by tho eueiny near Ihecily were
disin. Hinted, and but few shells were thrown into the
city during l.ieut. Hoke's stay. The heroic people
of Pefer.-burg he represent as perfectly sanguine of
a victory over the Yankees.
Sn:Ai;i;i.iN; To tiik I'ltoNT. A re ma vk nl, lo inci
dent occurred on Friday, and a charge was mad '
to recover our works captured near Petersburg,
Ya., by the enemy. The line of battle was formed
and the charge ordered, but afterwards delay being
coiishlerrd desirable, it was countermanded. Tho
countermand reached only a part of the troops.
The rest accordingly moved forward. ThoTu.x
aiis of Fields' division were among thono that were
lrdleil; hut seeing the other purl of Ihe lino move
on, they become restless, and finally impracticable,
lly ones, and twos, and s.piuds, they hroko ranks
and went forward. The contagion spread, until
soon the whole command, olbeers and all, took up
the well known yell, and rn.-hed on like a storm.
The works were every wlioio carried, and what is
extremely gratifying, with hut little loss. (ien. I.ee
is reported to have remarked, that he had known of
men straggling to the rear, but he never before
heard of their straggling to the front. .s'or. AV.

Il would seem that the Yankees did make a raid
this week from Neivbcrn in the direction of Kins

latter place. Their whole force in cavalry nn-liu-

The brutality our enemies have shown in their
Irealineiit of women is, ahoie all, h,.ih character
istic of Ihcir uuliou and iniYicnlive of (heir souse
that all is over with the "war for ihu Union. ; Let
us recall two lale examples of this. A few days
ago was recorded the case of poor Mrs. Corry. near
liclhesda Church, who, alter her place was Mrippcd
of every means of suhsislcneo, went to the rullian
w ho eall-Jhiinself lleneral Warren, soliciting per
mis-ion to buy a lillle portion of her own plun
dcrcl stoics lo feed her two sick and starving ehil-
licii. "We keep nothing for sale,'' replied Ihe
licncral. "T hen," said the half frantic woman
"1 will beg: give me, for (toil's .sake, a meal of meat
for my sick children." "Madam," replied this
"(ieneral," "we read that during the siege of Jeru
salcni women were reduced to eat their children."
This scene we have verilied. It is hue; and Ihe
man who said I hose base and coward words c.iiu
in. in. Is a corps of (ho army now thundering at our
gales. Another example: a 'Afonian.a Yirgiuia wo
man, uiolher of Conlodoriilo sons, finding herself
all abmu within the yankee lines, obtained un
interview with liciieial liraut, and solicited a puss
to eomo (o Kichinond lo hrrl'iiends for safely.

Il is good for n to hear, to think over, lo lay lo
heart, incidents like theso; they fortifiy us with all
the strength of holy horror, from sacred rage. They
make us feel that between us and thai yaiikue na
tion there is a gulf fixed; and that, whatever be
tide, we and they are two nalious now and forever
niore. Yet there is people eallinsr. themselves Confeder
ates, eoniforlabie citizens, who have never seen any
of the real horror of war, who have never lost a
night's sleep, nor a meal's meal in all these 'lireo
years of struggle, yet who complain of privation,
of high prices, of the difficulty of procuring Ihe
line fabrics or rich wme they have been accustom
ed to ; and who wish this cruel war was over, that
they may replenish their cellars with French wines
ami go to Newport for the summer, Lxainples of
such species of Confederates are perhaps rare ; yet
a respected clergyman of this city, in an eloipient
seriiion yesterday, preaching on tho text, "Is not
the life iiiiiio than meat, anil tho hotly more than
raiment ?" did think il. his duty to rebuke sternly
thosu who, living at lioine at ease, have yet the im
pudunoii Ui euuipUiu of thu luivutiuui to which uc
Indignantly lie held up to llietu tho example of
our good und gallant soldiers, thousands of whom
were used to sleep soft and to feast high, but now
lor three long years' bivouac in tho mud and munch
llio coarsest furu coiitenliidly, because they know
they must do this or sink into serfs and slaves; be
cause they understand that if the enemy come in
they will never Tigiiiu live in homes of their own,
nor lead their own lives in their own way, nor gov
ern their own households, nor call their very souls
their own; and because they understand that Ihe
life is mure than meat and Ihe body is more than
raiment. Can it indeed bo needful, at this day,
wilh such an enemy al our door, to inculcate inch
a lesson, and to prove to persons of luxurious life,
but grovelling spirit, that it is heller to deny them
selves for a season some extravagant lu.xurieu than
to admit masters and owners who will rule them
and their children with a rod of iron unto the third
and fourth generation. llii hrnuml Examiner.
A I'leanant Trip.
M'e speni yesterday vei;v pleasantly visiting the
llalh Paper Mill, and the works of the Southern
Porcelain Manufacturing Company.
The ilatli Mill is being pressed forward lo eom
ple'ion as rapidly as possible, under existing cir
cumstances, by Mr. W. H. Huso, Ihe courteous
and untiring agent, and will, when completed, be
tho largest, and best arranged Paper Mill in Ihe
Confederacy. Mr. Huso has had many difficul
ties to conlend against in pulling forward Ihe work
thus far, which nothing but indomitable will and
persei eranee could have overcome. ll is now
nearly eouiplete'd, and we hope soon to have the
pleasure of aiiiuyuneing it in successful operation.
The Porcelain works arc now under a new cyi'iic,
Col. llulloek as President, and our friend li. W.
Kimball, Ksip; lale of Ihe Kxpress Company, Su
perintendent names that are a sure guarantee for
energy .and dash in all mailers of business. Theso
were thu otilv works of Ihe kind in the Confedera
cy at Ihe coniinenceinent of the war, and have I
been of great benefit to the country, supplying an
Tl ey are manufacturing a good article of Kaolin
ware, udoptctl lo all household Wauls, such as
pitchers, bowls, plates, cups and saucers, etc., and
aro also making excellent lire brick. Their wares
tiro kept for sale next dooi to our office, and wo
advise those in want to call and examine them.
After spending a pleasant hour or s at the Por
celain Works, and imbibing sumo very line "spring
water," we returned home, much refreshed hy the
trip, tho agreability of which was greatly enhanced
by Ihe hospitality of our old and esteemed friend
Hickman, formerly of the South (.'arulina Hailrouil.
The Value and I'scs nl' VegetaliUs,
To the sick, wounded, and particularly the con
valescent, a vegetable diet ia most healthful and
desirable, and Ihe abundance of the supply ought !
to secure it as daily food. I think none will deny I
that one-loiirih ol ti pound ol hacon, cooked as it
ought to be and can be, wilh lifty cents worth of
vegetables, will go much further than a pound of
bacon and bo much more healthy. Tho fourth of
a pound of bacon will cost eighty-two cents ; the
vegetaiiles collards, cabbages, .suashcs, heels,
cucumbers, onions, shallots, ,'rish potatoes, Ac,
say fifty cents, making tho sum for a meal for two
hearty men 1 ilO. cooked alone, a half pound of
luicoii is the usual allowance tor one man, and 1
costs $1 til. llesides, then, its more healthful and f
acceptable character, two ir.tu can be dined upon j
eighty-two cents, whilo the exclusive bacon ration .
for one u an costs 51 CI.
llow important both to the sick and to the gov
ernment, if thesa suggestions bo well based that
the attention of hospital superinteudeuts and stew-
ar.ls he directed to them.
Not only can tho sick and wounded soldiers bo
much better and cheaper fed, but so can the gov
eminent laborers, both white and black, fur never
was any market so well and abundantly supplied
with vegetables, and at prices greatly cheaper than
anything else is sold. (.'oiiiintii A'ny.
.-f (In the authority of a letter roconlly pub
lished by one of our religions papers, says an ex
change, written by a di-tinguished Southern di
vine, now in New York, doubtless on parole, it was
stated in ono of the prayer meetings in that city,
that there has not been a single couvcrsiou in tho
Yankee unity aineo the war commenced. In our
own, it has boeu estimated that thousands on thou
sands have been converted.

forth several days ago is evidently being carried

ports that Surgeon Warren Stone, of that city is
slill alive. This will be a source of unspeakable
pleasure to his many friends and relatives who have
mourned for hini as dead. Headers will remember
the tune that "ihe lleast" had him confined at Fort
Jackson for no other reason than Ihal of being a
true ami devoted J'ricnd of the South. For reasons
best known to "(he llcasl," he released him without
letting the world know why. When yaukce Sher
man was wounded al l'aton linage, this Nestor of
Southern surgeons amputated his leir, lie only
consented to do so on the written fni!ilinu that the
Abolition (lovarnnient would aliovv (he Southern
prisoners who might be taken lo New Orleans lo
choose Ihcir own surgeons from the city, when sick
or wounded, and Prof. Warren Stone has from that
day to this been untiring in his elforls to render

passeiLthrough many exciting scenes. In the ear
ly part of Ihe war, she, with her husband and two
or three children, were re-iding in a border Stale,
secessiouisin was rampant, and during the absence
of the parents one day the children were all mas
sacred by some of the chivalry. The wife immedi
ately assumed male attire, enlisted in the same com
pany wilh her husband, ami fought side by sida
with him in nearly u II of tht: bailies participated in
by the aimy of the Cumb. rland. A few months
since her husband received n fatal bullet while
fighting by her side, and llio wife, too, was subse
quently wounded, and taken to the hospital, when;
her sex was discovered.
