Lieut. Burnett, of the 15Gth N. Y. Volun
teers, is in charge of the detachment.
Coai. Mixers’ Riot; —The coal miners near
Massillou, Ohio, ,have recently indulged in
a riot, the occasion being the employment by
iherbosses of some new hands, who had been
engaged to take the places of some strikers.
The old hands attacked the new men, and
the 45th regiment, National Guard, were
called out to restore order.
Reconstruction. —ln Virginia the people
are pressing forward by hundreds to take
the oath of allegiance, and to resume their
old positions as good citizens under the Union

the 22d ult., over eleven hundred had al
ready subscribed, and others were crowding
forward. These are the leadihg citizens of
Capt. M. Benedict.—By orders received
from Gen. Gillmore, Capt. Benedict is lequir
ed to proceed to muster out all troops whose
terms of service expire before the 30th of
September, 1865. This increase of business
compelled a change in .the Judgeship of the
Second Provost Court. Capt. Benedict s suc
cessor is Capt. Rundlett, 38tli Massachusetts
\ olunteers. The office of the Commissary
of Musters will be in the Express building,
on the same floor with the room of the Se
cond Provosj Court.
Capture of Professor McCdllouoh.— This
man, who was lately Professor of Physic in
Columbia College, New York city, it is said,
is among the suspicious persons lately arres
ted on tiie Florida Coast. This is the mau
to whose hands, on account of his scientific
knowledge, was intrusted the preparation of
chemical combustibles ty means of which the
rebel emissaries were to effect the destruc
tion by fire of the Northern cities and ship
ping. He entered the rebel service in 1863,
and was thereupon expelled from his Profes
ship, by the Faculty of the College, and it is
to be hoped that he may now be brought to
justice, for liaviug done his best to destroy
by flames the city which gave him bread for
so many years.
L- CJ. Norvell & Company. —Among our
most liberal and prompt-paying patrons, in
advertising and job printing, since the en
largement of the Herald have been L. C.
Norvell & Cos., merchants and bankers, cor
ner of Bay and Bull street. They have
the largest establishment in the city, and,
being liberal advertisers, courteous to their
customers, and always having the best fa
cilities for pleasing the public, they do a
large business. Our relations with them
have always been very satisfactory, and we
are only doing common justice in saying a
good word for them. Mr. Charles Green,
one of the firm, was formerly President of
the Bank ot Commerce, and a member of

A Soldier Drowned.— About It o’clock
yesterday, Wm. A. Perry, a private of Cos. B,
6th U. S. 1 tegular Infantry, was drowned
while fishing in the Savannah River Lock of
the Savannah and Ogechee Canal. Several
boys were swimming in the lock at the time,
and several were standing on the platform of
the south gates. .Perry took off his clothes,
cliiulied down one ottlie gates and got on the
platform, which was covered with about
three feet of water. He was cautioned that
if he could not swim ha had better not jump
oft theplutform as the water was very deep
in the lock, and he would be drowned. Re
gardless of this advice, he jumped in the
lock aud was drowned, about twenty-five
teet from tbe platform. Master William
Farelly, son of Mr. Charles Farelly, residing
on Fabiu street, hearing of the accident, im
mediately proceeded to the lock, plunged in.
and searched it thoroughly, by diving, but
could not find the body. It is supposed that
the body floated out into the river with the
tide. The deceased was aged about twenty

nail! tatter’d emblems of the deeds
By freemen nobly done ;
A prouder record is untold
Os battle* fought and won.
For nigh three years ye bore the brunt
Os conflict, fire and flood, t
Upheld by men whose duty was
To seal ye with their blood;
And this did they with more than will,
Each heart was true and brave;
On ev’ry field the watchword pass’d
Was ’’Victory or the grave."
Your history’s not less green because
The battles are nnscroll’d;
Remains there not a single stripe
On which they could be told ?
And e’en to-day, as I review
Each fold, tho’ but a shred,
On these I count a pyramid
Os brothers who have bled.
Rest they in silence where they fell,
By river, swamp and tree,
Whose names are yet familiar at
Tattoo and Reveille,
How proud are we who bore ye back.
And thankful that we’re spared,
On other fields, more stern, to win
New honors, there unshared.
Too old ye were to have been borne;
And had ye been along,
A record would be yours as yet
Unparalleled iff soite. t
