LETTER FROIH BEAUFORT.
The Troops—Siokneas—The Post Officers—
‘ What Beaufort Needs -The Colored Peo
ple lu Beaufort—A Colored Major.
Beaufort, S. C., July 21st, 1865.
Mr. Editor— Perhaps a word about Beau
fort in these warm July days may not be un
interesting to some of your readers; and
though almost all tine news we receive here
“between steamers,” comes through the
Herald, which seems to be about tbe only
paper sold here at such times—still there is
no harm ip trying to while away an hour in
chatting pen-fully with you. •
Gen. Saxton being North, the military are
pretty quiet. Soon after the 32d U. S. C. T.
left for Hilton Head, Battery A, 3d R. I.
Light Artillery-rthe only white troops which
were here—went also, and probably will soon
be mustered out, aud meet their friends at
We have, therefore, only two regiments
stationed here at present, the 104th and 128th
U. S. C. T. The former mustered into ser
vice less than a month since, ancl still un
armed. The 26th U. S. C. T. is in detach
ments, scattered all over the District; their
sick are sent here frequently for treatment.
Indeed there seems to be more activity iu
the Medical Department just now than any
where else. Almost half of the few white
persons left here are either sick, or afraid
they may be, particularly if this is their “first
summer south." The troops here are quar
tered badly, and the per centage of sickness
and deaths has been very large. There are
evidently too many boys of fourteen, fifteen
and sixteen years of age in these organiza
tions, who wilt under the light duty required
now. What would they have done on one
of our great campaigns with Grant or Sher
man? The U. S. General Hospital here was
closed a few day 9 since, and those patients
not sent away by steamers—some ninety in
number—turned over to the care of our wor
thy Fost Surgeon, Dr. Chapin, who Is already
struggling bard to perform all the duties re
quired of him, aided by a medical and cleri
cal force insufficient to meet the demands on
its time and strength.
Our new Post Commander, Col Howard, of
the 128th, —brother of Gen. Howard, Com
missioner ot Freedman—is much liked, and
the town under his administration prospers.
Much ot the credit 19 due to the efficiency
of our new Provost Marshal, Capt. Manning,
of the 128th. The Captain is a native of
Plymouth county, Mass., and bears a high
reputation aq a soldier and a gentleman.
What Beaufort needs more than anything
else just now, is a good daily newspaper,
and a market. Housekeepers here complain
bitterly that it requires so much time and
thought to provide for their households.
The country produces enough, not far dis
tant, but nobody seems inclined to bring
it into town regularly. I learn that an order
has just been issued forbidding sales in the
streets, and ordering them confined to the
Market, which might be enlarged, and ren
dered more attractive ; and it is to be hoped
it will be belter supplied than heretofore.
Sambo is in all his glory in Beaufort; one
meet 9 cblored gentlemen and ladies cantering
through its streets almost every day; and
everybody horseback here seems to ride as it
running a race.
The schools for colored children—l have
heard of no others—are all closed, I believe,
and most ot the teachers have gone, or are
going, to the North. But don't suppose that
the colored people have no meetings; warm
weather don’t wilt their piety a bit, judging
from the fact that three or loqr nights in a
week, yoiMtcorresDondcnt can He awake and
listen to four different services at the same lime,
going on in the neighborhood, and listen till
tour o’clock in the morning sometimes, as he
did night before last, while debating men
tally whether to send a note to the Provost
Marshal or to take a dose of Morphia.
We have a colored Major in town, of the
name of Delaney, I understand. He is com
missioned in the 104th U. 9. C. TANARUS., ranking
Lieuts. and Captains, who have sarved in
many a campaign as privates, and earned
heir promotion by hard knocks. One will
iot blame them for feeling a little sore at see
ing a civilian, and a colored man, step from
his home after the war is over, and coolly
proceed to teach them the art of war on a
peaceful field. • J. W. C.
The End of the Petticoat Story. —The
Chicago “Republican,” the new Republican
journal of which C. A. Dana, Assistant Sec
retary of War under Mr. Stanton, until two
weeks since, is the editor, settles the ques
tion in regard to the petticoat story, which
has been the basis of so many joke 9, theat
rical exhibitions etc., by pronouncing it a
According to the statement of persons who
were of the party captured with Davis, it
was a dressing or morning gown he had on,
and the same garment he had slept in during
the night. This statement is corroborated by
members of the Chicago Board of Trade
Battery, who accompanied the Wilson expe
dition, and heard the event narrated, with
minute details, by “the boys” who captured
and brought iu the rebel chief. They state
that the petticoat story, “lady's water proof
cloak,” “tin water bucket,’’and all, was a fie
Suffrage in South Carolina. —Gov. An

—The intimacy of Preston King with
President Johnson has reminded somebody
of«t good thing which occurred at tbe
Baltimore Convention which has not before
got into print. Mr. King, who is physically
a complete Falstaff, rose to make a speech.
He was not beard in the remote corners of
the hall;—and it was there thejittle Brand
agee ct Connecticut, jumped up and shouted:
“Mr. President, the distance around tbe gen
tleman is so great that it is impossible to hear
bins unless he speaks louder!” Os course a
roar of laughter followed, in which the elo
quent three hundred pounder joined.
—Two young gentlemen, of the matur
age of 15, residiug in London, have invented
anew method of picking pockets. Selecting
a person with a white waistcoat and a gold
watch, one of the young gentlemen throws
mud upon tbe waistcoat, and submits to a
beating, in order that the other young gen
tleman may snatch and run away with the
watch. After enjoying for some weeks what,
in the reports of philanthropic societies, is
called a “gratifying measure of success,”
both young gentlemen have been caught and
committed for trial.
—A contemporary, remarking upon “Our
Mutual Friend” and “Armdale,” speaks as
follows: “Dickens is becoming savagely
sterti as he grows old, probably because the
world will not grow better in spite of all his
efforts to improve it. Wilkie Collins is not so
stem as his friend, perhaps for the reason
that he is much the younger man. Years
may improve wine,-but the milk of human
kindness they turn sour indeed.”
—lt is remarked as a curious fact, that of
the many priests who stood round the high
altar of ot. Mary’s, Moorflelds, on the occa
sion of the consecration of Dr. Manning re
cently, as Roman Catholic Archbishop of
Westminister, there were not less than 100
who had either been in orders of the Church
of England, or had been fellows of English
colleges in their day.
—A workman in a brewery at Stamford
England, lately met with a fearful death. He
was sitting m a drowsy state on the edgf of
a tub, containing malt liquor at a tempera
ture of about one hundred and fifty degrees.
Someone entered aud spoke to him. Thl9
startled him, and he fell backwards into the
vat, and scolded to death.
—The London Post contains an appeal for
t. o c a l Matters.
Arrival of the Charleston Boat.— The
steamer Fannie arrived this morning, having
made her second trip between Charleston
and Savannah, touching at Beaufort and
Hilton Head. She brought the mails, pas
sengers and freight.
Postponement of the Launch. —The
launch of the schooner built by Mr. Hawkes
is postponed until to-night. This was ren
dered necessary in consequence of the tide,
there not being a sufficient rise to safely car*
ry her over the mud flat running from the
wharf to the river.
Lecture to the Young Men of Georoia.—
A Lecture will be delivered on Tuesday
night at 8 o’clock, in the Trinity (Methodist)
Church by the Rev. George G. Smith. Sub

gia in the present hour.” All are invilod;
Arrival of the Helen from Augusta.—

of passengers, a list of whom will be found
in our shipping intelligence, and a heavy
