ADDRESS Or MISS LYON.
Captain White and Gentlemen of thf.
11 Holloway Greys
Honored by the ladies of this community
as their ortrsn and representative, to present
to you, in their behalf, a flag of the “Confed
erate States,” I appear before you to dis
charge the pleasing duty.
On ordinary occasions it ill befits the
gentler sex to occupy public positions, or
appear before the public as speakers;
innate modesty of the sex would forbid
such conspicuous displays. But when the
thunders of revolution are rocking a conti
nent and armed men are rushing by thou
sands to the scene of battle, it seems pecu
liarly fitting and appropriate that woman
should lend her approving smiles and en
couraging words to those who are rallying to
participate iu the desperate strife. The stern
realities of war and the fearful shocks of
hostile armies but serve to enkindle the fires
of patriotism on the altar of her heart, and
her impetuous zeal stops not to counsel with
the cold and rigid proprieties of ordinary
times. But whatever her hands find to do
that will redound to her country’s good, or
nerve the arm of her patriot soldiers, she
does with all her might; anti with virtuous
indignation fligs back defiance to those who
would a.ssuil her rights or threaten her honor.
We firmly believe, that notwithstanding the
fashionable and extravagant excesses to
which they have gone, the same spirit which
animated the matrons of the revolution —
which enkindled the hearts of Spartan moth
ers—and inspired the women of ancient
Greece—still burns in the bosoms of their
descendants. Prosperity has its evils as well
as adversity ; and although the plethora of
prosperity which we have enjoyed for a
number of years past, may have served to
repress the spirit of heroism and bury be
neath the rubbish of extravagant fancies the
fires of patriotism, yet the present gloom and
depression of our country have evoked them
from their dormant recesses, and to day they
are flaming brightly in every true woman’s
This is not a festive occasion, mirthfulness
and hilarity are not. its appropriate insignia;
on til-.* contrary the thoughts ami reflections
which suggest themselves are full of solemn
and significant import. The stern ami
stubborn realization of war, with all its ac
companying horrors is upon us ; our land is
invaded, our soil polluted by the tread of a
hostile and brutal soldiery. The inyrmitinns
of Abraham Lincoln are swarming from their
Northern hives, where they have been fat
tening for years on the wealth of the South,
and are now darkening all our borders like
clouds of locusts. Virginia, the grand Old
Dominion, the mother of States and States
men, the birth-place of Washington, Jeffer
son and Patrick Henry, the noblest State of
the old thirteen, whose princely munificeueu
widened the boundaries of the republic, whose
very name is the synonym of everything
that is honorable, chivalrous and magnani
mous —whose citizens recently exhausted
every honorable means to secure their rights
in the Union—lias been iuvaded by mercen
ary hordes —her soil desecrated by the tread
of Northern vandals —her noble sons shot
down like wild beasts—and her towns and
villages taken possession of by abolition
mobs—and all for what ? Because she chose
to exercise the right of secession, reserved in
the original compact of union.
Maryland, the cradle of religious freedom
on this continent, is in chains at the feet of
the despotic tyrant, and the spirit of her
people intimidated by the presence of federal
guns and bayonets. Even far distant Mis
souri, her borders have been overrun, and
innocent women and children have been
butchered in cold blood. Their blood is
crying to Heaven for vengeance, and South
ern troops will be chosen instruments to exe
cute that vengeance, though manacled on
her borders, has roused from her lethargy,
anti shouts back defiance to Lincoln s gath
ering hosts. The hero, Jackson, who lost
his life in defending the Confederate flag,
though lie now sleeps beneath the sod of his
own loved Virginia, yet speaks to us in tri
umphant tones —his example and death plead
more eloquently for retributian than the most
inspired utterances of the greatest living
orator. To arms ! to arms ! is the rallying
cry from the utmost verge of Virginia to the
last rolling prairie of Texas. Tennessee, no
ble, gallant Tennessee —lias caught up the
wild retrain, and her mountains and valleys
are reverberating in thunder tones to her
sisters of the South. Sonth Carolina, chiv
alrous South Carolina—what shall 1 say of
her? AVith Spartan bravery she led the
South in this great revolution. She stood
up to the right and proclaimed her freedom,
solitary and alone in her glory, while as yet
she hud no positive assurance of the co-oper
ation of a single State ! In defiance of fed
eral threats and coercicves, with the history
of nullification liesh in her memory, she
raised high the standard of Southern inde
pendence, and erected a wall of strong arms
and stout hearts to defend it at any and eve
ry cost. Our own loved State, Georgia,
“ I love theo next to Heaven above,
Land of my fathers thee I love,
And rail thy slanderers as they will
With all thy faults, I love thee still.”
Though calm and self-possessed—is stern
and defiant as fate. Her gallant sons have
nobly responded to their country’s call, and
thousands eager and panting for the fray,
are awaiting their turn to engage in the con
test. Hut it is useless to discriminate where
all are doing their duty. Suffice it to say,
the South is fully aroused, and her motto is,
death to the invader who puts his feet on
her soil. Our teeming legions are rushing
and concentrating on the plains of the “Old
Dominion, ’’ w here battles will be fought aud
victories won. Large miniber.-> are hovering
on the borders of the Mississippi to repel the
mercenaries of Lincoln who are threatening
the devastation of that fertile valley —and
thousands are mustering on the far off prai
ries of Texas to welcome Jim Lane and his
marauders to the graves of eternal oblivion.
You,gentlemen of the “Holloway Greys,”
, have offered your services for the war, to aid
| in swelling this mighty tide of opposition,
which I shall soon overwhelnin our
enemies, or drive them hack in dismay to
their abolition dens. You have nobly vol
unteered to become a part of that vast ava
iauehe of Southern heroism and bravery,
whose resistless march -dial! obliterate with
their own blood the last footprint of the in
vaders, and over whose track desolation aud
destruction shall hover like a pull. You
have deliberately resolved to forsake all the
endearments of* home, to saerili.*e the coim
forts of your own firesides, and to forego
tile Humberto pleasures and convenience*
of domestic life, lot- the purpose of respond
ing to your country’s call for help in this
the hour of her extremity. Wo presume not
to prescut motives to arouse you to greater
zeal or to enkindle in your hearts a deeper
ad higher patriotic fervor. No, brave sol
diers ! we would not thus wound those noble
hearts that beat .so devotedly beneath your
glorious arms. Our object is to relieve our
own full hearts of that burning and expres
sive love which we have neither power nor
will to conceal. Would that we could give
you soma faint m uaifestation of our appre
ciation of your generous and self-sacrificing
determination. Would that we had lan
guage to portray —to fully paint the deep
and fervent emotions that are now swelling
from the great hearts of female devotion to
your cause. Gould we command the richest
dyes of the countless flowers that smile on
our sunny plains, and the brightest tints of
the golden sun now gleaming in reflected
splendor from vour glorious arm3, weaving
a victorious wreath of glory around each
manly form ! still wc would fall short of
completing the picture. W e would then
fail to do justice to the true daughters of
TTpson. Then, gentlemen, when language
fails let our deeds express what every heart
will own and bless This banner —this
proud and glorious banner, that calls on
Southern hearts to protect and defend South
ern rights, made by the ladies, moistened by
their tears, and consecrated by their prayers,
we joyfully consign to your keeping,assured
while wo do so that it will be in the custody
of safe hands, and will never he dishonored
so long as one of your number survives to
bear aloft its beautiful folds in the pure sun
light of Heaven.
Gentlemen, brave and noble volunteers —
to me this is a prized and happy privilege.
; The privilege of passing that proud banner
; to your faithful hands gives me heartfelt
pleasure. Glorious flag ! we love you ! we
love your name and your mission ! A ictory
spreads from your ample folds, and those
bright stars tell of glorious conquest.
Guard it as you would h priceless legacy,
! cherish it as the apple of your eye, and nev
er let its beautiful folds trail in the dust of
defeat until the last man of you shall tall on
the field of glory. We congratulate you on
your happy choice of a leader. A our hon
ored Captain, Mr. A. J. White We teel
assured that, lie will be brave and efficient in
the cause of his country. \\ e love, we rev
erence, we adore the man that bravely meets
the foe, whether that foe be in the form of
‘ man or of demons.
Go, then, brave men and valiant Captain!
Go in the strength of Him who Ld the hosts
of Israel to victory. We resign you, dear and
precious as you are to our hearts, we cheer
fully resign you in high and holy trust, and
fear no evil, for
“Our glorious South shall still be free;
No foul oppressor’s tread,
Shall mar the dust that sweetly rests
Above our holy dead.
The mighty and the brave repose
Beneath our Southern sky,
Their dust has hallowed all our soil,
And Freedom cannot die !
Then go, brave soldiers! proudly bear
That Hag where she may call
Be first, and best, and bravest there—
Go, brethren —friends —all!
Go, tho’ our hearts may bleed to see
You wave a ‘ last farewell
We’d rather mourn the brave and true
Than smile where tyrants dwell 1”
MR. J. T. Ml RPHKY’s RESPONSE.
! Miss Lyon and Ladies :
In behalf of the Holloway Greys, I have
the honor to accept this beautiful banner,
adorned by the fair bands of woman. The
fact, of your presenting us with such a flag
impresses us forcibly with the regard which
; you have for us as a company, individually
| and collectively, and the great interest which
j y„ u foci in our welfare and success in a mili
tary capacity. It, exhibits to us your love
i of country and countrymen, and we, urged
on and encouraged by the interest which the
fair ladies of our beloved South take in our
present difficulties, should press forward in
the defence of our rights as long as life lasts
or a foe remains on Southern soil.
We are fast changing to a military people,
necessity invites our attention in that direc
tion. Only a few years back in the past
there was a time of pleasure, trauquiiity
and peace, there was nothing to mar our
happiness; the North and South were then
a united people, the American people bid
fair to become one of the greatest nations on
earth, every branch of science was making
to perfection, the greatest improvements
were being made in American literature,
everything seemed to tend to future pros
perity, to the happiness of the American
people, and to their exaltation among the
other distinguished nations of the earth.—
But think what a few years have developed.
The North, by her action, has merited the
dissatisfaction of the South, and now, we, a
Southern people stand united, asking noth
ing only to be suffered to enjoy our rights
under our Southern constitution. The clouds
of darkness which have so long threatened us
brings horror to every heart. Our Northern
foe which for years trampled on our rights,
as guarantead under the old constitution,
and in consequence of which wc claimed the
right of separation, has invaded our South
ern soil, threatening desolation and destruc
tion. In view of such facts does not every
heart utter in tones of thunder that liberty
we must have, liberty we trill have ? With
out this liberty life would furnish no attrac
From the time of the last Presidential
election, we, tho South, have said that we
will not have Lincoln to rule over us. These
have been our words and our actions go to
prove the assertion, iu consequence oi which,
holding the right of recession as belonging
to us, we have announced our separation.
They say that they will suppress our rebel
lion, as they are pleased to term it; we say
that to the last we will defend our native
South, our homes, our firesides, our South
ern Confederacy, and that we will repel our
I Northern invaders or die iu the attempt. —•
\V T e mu A not forget that we have a powerful
foe to contend with ; let us not underrate
them, but meet them with the assurance that
we must meet wi ll powerful opposition, still
resolving to conquer or die in the attempt,
feeling that when our lives are thus spent
they will be speut in a glorious cause, feeling
that we have the approval of God ; we must
li.k to Him for preservation and success,
ami knowing that Ills Omnipotent Hand lias
thus far brought it - victorious through every
contest. The prayers of Hist people are Jail y
ascemliug to His throne ot* mercy petitiociiuGr
our safe pita Uiruugb our preoeut trou
bles. Kvery eye is engaged, every heart
throbs with intense anxiety for success in
every effort, all of our movements are watch
ed with the greatest concern.
Feeling assured that we are in the right,
and urged forward by the prayers of millions,
we stand invincible before every foe, and
with His protection we shall, though it may
be after a long and bloody conflict, come out
victorious, and to the ruin of our enemy,
and then we arc an independent people, shall
be respected and exalted among other nations.
Thousands of our fellow-men have gone
forth to the scene of action, and they are
still going with a determination to drive
back the invaders from our soil. We have
witnessed the departure of many even within
a short time; and we have volunteered for
the war ; and expect also soon to have the
glorious privilege of going forth with others
ot our beloved countrymen to engage in the
battles of our country. The pleasures of
home must then be sacrificed, we must be
cut off from the pleasant asso.iial ions of our
nearest and dearest relations and the long
enjoyed society of our friends, however dear
they may have been, in order that we too may
take our places in the battles of our beloved
country to secure for ourselves independence
and liberty. It is truly a trying point in a
man’s life to bo called on to leave those uear
aud dear to him, aud to take his position in
the field of battle. We go as a company,
not knowing when it will be our privilege to
return, or whether we shall ever return with
our full number. But this is a sacrifice
which we should be willing to make for our
country’s cause, for we all have a common
interest at stake, and whatever is necessary
in order to promote that interest must bo
done. We will not be the first who have
made such a sacrifice. Can we hesitatingly
stand off and without concern see Southern,
soil polluted by the foot-priuts of a desolating
We must leave homes, friends, relations
and everything else near and dear to us, and
looking to our noble banner resolve to carry
it triumphantly through every battle. We
have been presented with this beautiful flag.
Shall those patriotic ladies entertain fear for
one moment that the flag shall be dishonor
ed by a violation of the sacred trust on the
part of any member of our company ?
Ltather give them reason ever tn hope that,
it will be preserved from the hands of the
enemy, and never, while life is given, shall
it be dishonored, but that the last one of
our number would fall before it should trail
in the dust, especially when we remember
the kind and generous hearts who have
placed it iu our care for protection.
Members of the Holloway Greys, let us
never suffer this banner, with its beautiful
colors, to fall iu the dust; but let us light,
for our rights, our liberty, ourselves, Un
fair maidens of our land, and for future
generations, under its flying colors, and let
it never fall into the hands of a treacherous
Men, remember that which is placed in
our care —remember our promise, and let it
never prove false; but let us carry it when
we go, aud when we return, let us return it
as we received it, and with the laurels of
Ladies, accept the sincere thanks of the
Holloway Greys, for the beautiful banner
which you have presented to us,-and be as
sured that we will never prove recreant to
the trust which you have reposed in us, but
that it will be preserved from the wicked
hands of a desolating foe.
And to you, the color-bearer, I commit
this beautiful banner. Protect these colors
for the sake of these fair ladies, for our sake,
and most of all, because it is the flag of our
Southern Confederacy ; and should you ever
be called to bear its flying colors into the
field of battle, defend it at all hazards, and
under all circumstances, and if permitted
to return home, return it to these ladies who
have presented it, with the honors of victo
ry, and you, yourself, will have the honor
of having fought in defence of the Southern
Confederacy, and under its noble flag.

[From the Reporter of the World.]
At two o’clock this morning I arrived in
Washington, having wittnessed the great
couflict near Manassas Junction from begin
ning to eud, and the gigantic route and
panic which broke up the Federal Army at
its close. I stayed near the action an hour
or two later, than my associates, in order to
gather the final incidents of the day, and
fully satisfy myself as to the nature aud ex
tent of the misfortune.
And now in what order shall I describe
the event of yesterday ? Even now, how
shall one pretend to give a synthetic narra
tion of the whole battle, based on the het
erogeneous statements of a thousand men—
a buttle whose arena was a tract miles in
breadth and length, interspersed with hills
aud forest—whose contending forces were
divided into a dozen minor armies, contin
ually interchanging their positions, and nev
er all embraced within the cognizance of any
spectators or participator. Kent the General
commanding the Federal column* mas vjno
ra>U at the close of the positions of hi* several
corps —was ignorant , at the beginning, of
the topography of the dangerous territory on
which he attached an overpowering foe.—
Was either General of divisions better in
formed of the movements of even his own
force ? I doubt it. 1 only know that at sun
set last evening, Generals, Colonels aud Ma
jors were all retiring, devoid of their com
mands, no more respected or obeyed than
the poorest private in the broken ranks. I
know that a grand army was never more dis
gracefully or needlessly disrupted and blot
ted, as it were out of existence in a single
day. This is the truth, and why should it
not be recorded ? Aud why should I not tell
the cause which produced this sad result ?
Weeks will be required for the proper sum
ming up of details. At present, for one, 1
acknowledge my inadequacy to describe
more than the panorama which passed be
fore my own eyes, and the result decided
by the combination of this with much that
has been seen aud done elsewhere

DISGRACEFUL features of the flight.
Tle most discreditable features of this
MAuipede was the very large number of scl

the road, and eoiupeljed every soldier upon

his regiment, ‘i'hey were dragged out of
carriages and from the backs of horses, ami
turned backward with the greatest rigor.—
Many of them managed, however, to pass
the guard, aud the road all the way to Wash
ington was crowded with these timid and
How they were suffered to pass Long
Bridge, having neither pass nor counter
sign, is among the mysteries which I have
no thought ol fathoming. But they mado
their appearance on the street corners and
in the bar rooms of the city with the early
dawn and each speedily became the central
point of a steadily swelling crowd, who
learned the bloody history of this awful bat
tle from the lips of these heroes, every one
of whom had staid in the very thickest of
the fight until his regiment was all cut to
pieces, and lie was left the sole survivor. It
was these men who gave to the masses in
Washington their knowledge of the terrible
defeat the Union forces had sustained. —
Why General Mansfield has suffered them
thus to roam the streets all day, filling the
public ear with their prodigious lies, and
creating an intense and dangerous fever of
the public mind, I can not imagine.
MR. RAY MONO'S EX PElt IFNCE.
* * * After I had driven something
over a mile from the village on my way to
Washington, the crowd in the rear becamo
absolutely frenzied with fear, and an im
mense mass of wagons, hoises, men on foot
and flying soldiers, came dashing down the
hill at the rate which threatened destruc
tion, instant and complete, to every thing in
| their way. The panic spread as they pro
ceeded, and gathering strength by its pro
gress, the movement became absolutely ter
ritfic. The horses caught the frenzy of the
moment, and became as wild as their mas
! tors. My driver attempting to check tho
ispeed of our carriage, found it suddeuly

I Pennsylvania army wagon, which crushed it

A correspondent of the Petersburg Express
relates the following :
One of the most interesting incidents of
the battle is presented in the case of \\ .P.
* Mangum, Jr , son of Ex-Senator Mangutn, of
North Carolina. This young man was at
tached to Col. Fisher’s Regiment, T believe,
and owes the preservation of his life to a copy
of the Bible presented to him by his sister.
He had the good book in his left coat pocket.
It was struck by a ball near the edge, but
the hook changed the direction of the bul
let, and it glanced off, inflicting a severe, but
not dangerous flesh wound. The hook was
saturated with blood, but the advice written
on a fly leaf by the sister who gave it was
perfectly legible. It read thus :—“ To my
brother. lie will read a portion of this
blessed Word every day, and remember bis
A Good Arrangement. —We learn that
the Wilmington and Weldon Rail Road
Company is about fitting up a few ainbu
alnce cars for transportation of sick and woun
ded soldiers. These ears are intended to run
all the way from Richmond to the Cape
Fear River. They are to have easy lounges
Will other roads join iu this arrangment ?
We trust they will. When the pulse
throbs with fever, or the mangled frame is
torn with torture at every turn, the chan
ging of cars and the forced necessity of
maintaining an erect position is agony un
endurable, and certainly an agony that
our wounded soldiers ought to be spared it
an arrangement can be made whereby this
can be done. — Wilmnyton Journal.
No Cotton to jie Shipped. — We publish
to-day a card signed by every Cotton factor
in New Orleans, recommending the planters
not to ship a bale of Cotton to Now Orleans
until the blockade is fully and entirely
abandoned. The Gentlemen who sign this
card are all men of their word, who mean
precisely what they say, and who control the
trade of one liaif the Cotton product of the
United States. Their recommendation will
be carried out by the planters to a man.—
X. O. Delta.
The merchants of Mobile make the same
recommendation, and the cotton planters of
the Confederate. States should adopt the plan
generally—keep all the cotton Irom the sea-
Doard until the blockade is raised.
Making Vinegar.— To eight gallons of
clear rain water add three r|uarts of molas*
ses • put into a cask shake well a few times,
then add two or three spoonfuls of good
yeast cakes. If in summer, place the cask
in the sun ; it in winter, near tlie chimney,
where it may warm. In ten or fifteen days
add to this liquid a sheet of brown paper,
torn in stripes, dippen in molasses, and good
vinegar will be produced. The paper will in
thi> form what is called the “ ’
ov life of vinegar.
