Special Orders No. 2.
1. All persons enlisted by his Majesty
on earth, are hereby appointed his special
agents, because of their loyalty and strict
obedience to Lis orders, and lie congratu
lates you on yoursuccess iu bringing suf
fering and destitution on liis enemies.
For he has the most undoubted evidence of
your zeal in his cause —by the large num
ber of poor careworn women, and ragged
children, aud the thousand female, appli
cants for work at Davis’ clothing bereau ;
and his-satauic Majesty hopes you will
still show your loyalty by a continued obel
dience to his orders.
.If. Buy all you call, as low as possible,
anil soil it for all the necessities of the peo
ple will compel them to give, and make
them believe there is no more in the world
only what you have on hand, for you know
a lie well,stuck to, is as good as the truth.
111. Be very careful not to give full
weight, or measure, aud if you have any
1 tainted meat, or other damaged article on
hand, let the poor have that at a reduced
price—say one cent, in the pound cheap
er than a good article, for you know it won’t
do for the poor to live well in this world—-
as they'have a kingdom promised them
hv ••afmv-... , . - x . /.
IF. If you have a contract-for wemen’s
work, be sure you don’t allow them to earn
more than one pound of beef iu a day, or
a pound of bacon in three days, and by this
means you will soon get rich from govern
ment contracts, while the poor fool women
have no better sense than to work out a
fortune for you.
V. If a poor woman comes to you-for as
sistance or work —be sure to insult her if
you can. Make all the Proselytes, and
Prostitutes you can —as females once en
listed make the best of recruiting agents
for you master’s service.
YL You who are engaged in the liquor
traffic are injuring the cause of your mas
■ ter by selling too high-, you - should sell it
cheaper than anything else, as it is one of His
Majesty’s best recruiting Agents, and causes
them to report much earlier, and'more
promptly at these headquarters.
VII. .Depreciate the murrbpoy all you
can by every groundless excuse, and be
sure you get it all ,if possible and bring it
with you to these headquarters.
VriL. Go to churcli often, wear very
long faees —and don’t forget to wear the
livery of Ifeaven—which you stole to serve
the Devil in. £-,()bey these orders and you
shall be rich, and live well at no other cost
than that of your immortal soul, which will
be required of you when your term of ser

a Dixie,” the Richmond correspondent
of the Atlanta Appeal, ventilates another
recognition rumor. He says that Mr. Mc-
Rae, of North Carolina, who lias just arri
ved in Richmond, via Bermuda and Wil
mington, from Paris, brings intelligence of
a final arrangement which has been made
by the Emperor of the French for the res
cognition of tire Confederate States and the
termination of the war. This is, iu sub
stance, the policy foreshadowed with so
much distinctness in the famous pamphlet
of M. Michel Chevalier, butwc have been
so often humbugged by similar rumors that
we place no reliance upon it.
It is said that Rothschild possesses a
million millions of franps, but that, compar
ed witlj others, he is poor, at least, so it
pleases the good people of state, for they
have just lieaul that there exests in India
a naboUavo- thfa trillion, which, represent
ed in fibres, would do 1,000,000,000,000.
To count this sum, coin by coin, the coin
being a franc, at the rate ol two hundred ‘
a minute, aud working twelve hours a day,
it would occupy nineteen !k v tud three
hundred and nineteen days.
•oath of a Young Woman on the Bat
tle-field of Chickamauga.
The case of a young woman in Willough
by street lias brought to our mind the sto
ry of the unfortunate -Maid of New Or
leans, who was “ burnt by wicked Bedford
soy a witch.” It well illustrates the sob
monie proverb that li there is nothing new
under the sun.” The superstitious of the
dliys of Joan of Are still fiourshed iu e.ur
enlightened and renowned city. It may
sadden us that tliis should be so; yet sen
timent is not so much the business of a
'm - vplist as to record the things that oc
■* Tm every. *L.yJih.
About a twelve-month since, when dis
aster everywhere overtook the Union arms,
and our gallant sons were falling fast un
der that marvelous sword of rebellion, o
young lady, scarce nineteen, just from aq
academy in a sister State, conceived tho
idea that she was destined by Providence,
to lead our arms to victory, and our nation
through successful war. It was at first
thought by her parents, a highly respecta
ble family in Willoughby street, that her
mind was weakened simply by leading ac
counts of continued reverses to our arms,
and they treated her as they would a sick
child. This ouly had the effect of making
her more demonstrative, and her enthusi
astic declaration and 'apparent sincerity
gave the family great anxiety. Dr. B. was
consulted, the- minister was spoken to,
friends advised, family meetings held, in
terview's with the young lady by her form
er companions in the academy were frequent,
but nothing could shake the feeling which
had possessed her.
It was finally resolved to take her to
Michigan. An old maiden aunt accornpa
- nied the fair enthusiast, and for a few weeks
Ann Arbor became their home. The stern
command of her aurit alone prevented her
from making her wav to Washington to so
licit an interview with the President for
the purpose of getting command of the
; United. States army. Finally if was found
necessary to restrain her from seeing any
but her own lUmilv, and her private par
lur became !,<■-r jO'Ai,
To a high spirited girl this would he
unendurable at any title, but to a young
lady filled with such a hallucination it w T as
worse than death. Bhe resolved to elude
her friends, aud succeeded, leaving them
clandestinely, and although the most dis
tinguished detectives of the East and the
West were employed to find her wherea
bouts, it was unavailing. None could even
conjecture the hiding place. This was last
April. Bhe was mourned as lost. The
habiliments of mourning were donned by
her grief stricken parents, aud a suicide’s
grave was assumed to be hers. But it was
not so. The infatuated girl, finding no
sympathy with her friends, resolved to cn- ,
ter the army disguised as a drummer boy,
dreaming, poor girl, that her destiny would
be worked but by such a mode. She joined
the drum corps of a Michigan regiment at
Detroit, her sex known only to herself, and I
succeeded in getting with her regimegt at j
the army of the Cumberland. How the
poor girl survived flic hardships of the
: Kentucky campaign, where strong men
fell tn numbers, must forever remain a mys
The regiment to which she was attached
bad a place in the division of the gallant
Van C'lcve, and during the bloody battle of
last Sunday the fair girl fell, pierced in the
left side by a mitinie ball, and when borne
to the surgeon’s tent her sex was discover
ed. She was told by the surgeon that Iter
wound was mortal, and advised to give
her name that her family might be infrwtu
cd of *lier fate. This she finally, though
reluctantly, consented to do, and the Colo
nel of tho regiment, although suffering him
self from a painful wound, became interest
ed in her behalf, and prevailed upon her
to let him scud a dispatch to her father.
This she directed in the following manner:
yi r ._ f N , Willoughby streets,
Brooklyn: Forgive your dying daughter.
1 have blit a few moments to live. My na
tive soil drinks my blood. I expected t
deliver mv country, but. tho fates w0,.-
not have it so. I am content to die.
Pray, pa, forgive me. Tell mu to kiss my
daguerreotype. * Emily.
P. S. —Give my old watch to little Eph.
(The youngest brother of the dying girl.)
\\c are permitted by the afflicted parents
to give the. dispatch as it came over the
wires, suppressing only the family mime.
Hero, ilien, is a short incident of war
which might read like roulance. But lo
-the Unhappy family who are now bowed
down with grief romance loses its attrac
tion—and the actual, sad, eventful histo
ry of poor Emily will be a taniily record
for the generation yet to come.
Tribute to Woman’s Power.
A California State Senator, in
upon some bill, affecting the property o*r
business of women, paid them the following
“ f >ovb woman; I have loved her all
my life—through boyhood, man
hood and mature years. I expect to love
her all my life,and dying to be found faith
ful to the same high and inspiring senti
ment; for amid all the varied scenes,
temptations, struggles and hopes of exist
ence, hne star, brighter than ours, has light
ed and guided me omvards. If I had any
high and noble ambition, the. executing en
ergy b.r been 0. the approving snfiUus com
ing from the eye of woman, Gentle in her
affection, yet mighty through lier influence,
her medium of yule is as powerful as the
ballot-box. She has ruled mo from my
boyhood with the sol't and winning influ
ence of her virtues and her beauty. I re
member my iirst love—my baby affections
of four years of age—X have been in love
nearly every month of my life since; save
the dark and ray Jess days and years winch
succeeded the desolated hearth, and made
the heart, too, desolate. And never, sir,
while I remember my mother—long since
in her grave —I. remember the night she
died—never, while I hold in my memory
one other, and her memory is all that is
left me, shall [ refuse to give my voice, my
vote, for any measure necessary to protect
and cherish the weaker and better part
of creation against the oppression, neglect
aud abuse of my sex.”
Brownlow is again in the field with an
other letter. The bitterness of this old
renegade appears to.increase with his age.
In a recent manifesto lie remarks thus:
The meditation i advocate is that of the
cannon and the sword ; and let there be no
armistice, on sea or land, until all the. reb
els, front and rear, North and South, are
subjugated or exterminated. And then
let condign punishment be speedily moot
ed out to the surviving leaders of this un
holy crusade against civilization. My mot
to is... G r.cpji lire.
for the leaders. And none but the' loyal
should be consulted in the great casting up
of these accounts.
A lady friend suggests the propriety of
withdrawing at legst 100,000 men from
the field, and recruiting in their place the
same number of women. Tilt, following are
her reasons :
, 1. The inequality in the sexes is becom
ing truly alarmiing.
2. The fact that women can scratch
their way .in and out of a fight better than
3. There are some masculine old women
at home, who are satisfied, in their own
minds, that if permitted to manage things,
t hey would compel the Yankees to present
anas in a very short time.
While Richmond papers are plied with
complaints of “ hard times ” and difficul
ties attending the provision markets, the
Biclimoiid theatres arc filled nightly at §3
a seat, or over, and as usual in connection
with these schools of morality, the bar
rooms do a brisk business near the thea
tres. The number of figsby dressed and idle
persons walking along the streets of Rich
mond and other cities, would not suggest
to a stranger any notiop of high prices.
It is rumored that (ion. G T. Anderson,
of Georgia, was appointed a Major Gener
al during the President’s late visit to the
army of Tennessee. Gen. Anderson is a
brave and efficient officer, and belonged to
the United States Regular Army before
the war. He is known among his men by
the soubriquet of “ GUI i'igc.”
Simkins says that Lincoln may be a fool
in some sense of the word, but he has a
good understanding nevertheless, as his
foot measures fourteen inches. This would
also imply that 110 has a good “ sole,”
in spite of the many wrong and* wicked
“ steps ” he lias taken.
What would the Confederate notes of
Sixty have said prior to the act of the Leg
islature of Virginia, de'claring them good
for taxes, could they have spoken ? Help,
