*KIIYORS AND PROPRIETORS.
The Virginia correspondent of the Atlan
ta Confederacy, gives additional particulars
ofj(the great Manama fight, which will be
read with interest. The writer says :
There are some additional facta touching
the death of the lamented Bartow aud the
part which the 7th and Bth Georgia Regi
ments performed in the great battle of the
21st. which I have obtained from eye wit
nesses, and which canuot fail to interest
your readers. Col Bartow fell when he was
leading the Seventh in a charge upon Ritk
et’s battery, not Sherman’s. Lieut W • f*
Moon, of the Atlanta Confederate 1 oluu
teers, J. T. Bindley, of the Cobb county
Confederate Guards, J L. Pol-h-of the
same company, and a 1 irginian. picked him
up and bore him to the rear. Ilis last
uttered when thc\ started of! w ith
biro, as reported to mo. were : “Boys, they
have killed rue, hut never give it up.”—
They carried him seventy-five or a hundred
yards from where he fell, and laid him down ;
but the bullets fell so thick about him that
they removed him further down the hill,
where they procured some water, lie drank
a little, and then seemed to try to sj>eak,
but was not able. They then applied the
canteen to his lips a second time, but he
was unconscious and could not swallow the
water. Laying him back, he died almost
immediately, and without a struggle. They
took off his gloves and placed them aud a
cartridge box under his head for a pillow.—
He did not live more than twenty minutes
after he fell. When T tirst saw him, about
ten o’clock at night, his face wore a smile
of victorious satisfaction that led me, for a
moment, to doubt the reality of his death.—
Hearing of his fall, Gen. Johnston sent a
detachment to bring his body to headquar
ters, which was done, and on tin following
day, by order of President Davis, his re
mains were taken to Richmond to Mrs.
Bartow. His sword, which had been previ
ously broken by a ball, was saved, and yes
teaday I succeeded in getting his belt.
While on a visit yesterday to the Seventh
Regiment, I had the satisfaction to examine
their flag. It has fourteen bullet holes in
it, and at Bartow’s fall, Lieutenant Paxton
of Virginia asked leave, the color hearer
being wounded, to carry the flag. Ilis re
quest was granted, and he anti W. L Nor
man, one of the color guards, DeKalb coun
ty, were the first to place it upon the captured
battery, Kli W. Iloyte of the Atlanta Con
federate Volunteers, was the first to mount
There is another incident which deserves
public mention, and which shows of what
kind of stuff the Georgia boys are made. —
Wm. DeJournett of the Rome Light Guard,
having been slightly wounded aud left be
hind concealed himself in the bushes. The
Second Rhode Island Regiment passed by,
without seeing him, hut Col. Sloemn who
commanded the regiment and who came on
behind it, discovered him in the bushes. —
Attempting to draw his pistol, he said,
“your life you rebel.” For some reason he
could not get out his pistol easily, and seeing
DeJournett level his musket at him, he cried
out, “don’t shoot.’ - But the Georgian did
shoot and killed him too. He then took to
his heels through the thicket, and the regi
ment sent a shower of bullets after him but
to no effect. I saw Slocum’s grave to-day
in a little cabbage garden by the side of the
road not far front the battle field, ami also
found their Maj. Ballou of the same Regi
ment who had his leg shot off.
But I must stop ; for if I were to go on
to tell all the gallant acts of our boys, mv
supply of paper would soon be exhausted.—
All the officers in loth Regiments, and
every man in the ranks, did their whole du
ty. Major Cooper is the only field officer
in the Eighth and Col. Jits. F. Cooper, the
only one in the Seventh, who escaped inju
ry. Col. Gardner, who had his leg broken
by a minnie ball, is now at a farm house,
near this place, and doing very well. Major
Dunwoody, of the Seventh, received a slight
wound in the shoulder, while his horse re
ceived four shots without Icing killed.
I send herewith a list of the casualties jn
the Eighth Georgia Regiment. There were
only about 550 men in the Regiment when
it went into action, owing to sickness and
other causes, and yet 32 were killed, 151
wounded, and 11 are missing—-104 in all.
More ikau one out of every three, lu the
Oglethorpe Light Infantry, Col. Bartow’s
old Company, only I*4 nen out of 87 es
caped without a wound or mark of some
kind, either upon their bodies or their clo
There si still another fact I cannot for
bear to tecord. After the terrible tiro to
which the Eighth Georgia had been ex
posed, and which they received with the im
mobility of marble statues, < Jen. Beaure
gard passed the little remnant of the Regi
ment that was still left, which was ready to
strike yet another blow j and raising his cap
with undisguised admiration and sympathy,
he said. “Eighth Georgia, I salute you.”

The criminations and recriminations
am mg the chief Liucolnites about who is to
bear the blame of the “repulse” at Manas
sas, have at last brought out Lieut. General
Winfield Scott iu the papers, over his own
sign manual. A portion of his card (aud all
that wc have seen) is copied iu the Nash
ville Vmttu ami American of the Ist instant,
from the New York Times of the 20th July.
It is as follows :
“I am only a subordinate. It is my busi
ness to give advice when it is asked, and to
obey oiders when they are given. 1 shall
ifo it. There are gentlemen in the Cabinet
who know much more about war than I do,
and who have far greater influence than I
have in determining the plan of the cam
paign- There never was a more just and
upright man than the President, —never one
desired more sincerely to promote the best
interests of the country. But there are men
among his advisers who consult their own
resentments far more than the dictates of
wisdom and experience,—and these men will
probably decide the. plan of the cumpaiyv. —
i shall do, or attempt, whatever 1 am or
dered to do. Hut they must not hold me
responsible. If lam ordered to go to Rich
mond, 1 shall endeavor to do it. But I
know perfectly well that they have no con
ception of the country, i know the coun
try —how admirably adapted it is tc defence,
and bowr resolutely and obstinately it will
be defended. I would like nothing better
than to take Richmond—now that it has
been disgraced by becoming the capital of
the Rebel Confederaej’, I feel a resentment
towards it, and should like nothing better
than to scatter its Congress to the winds. —
But I have lived long enough to know that
human resentment is a very bad foundation
for a public policy; and these gentlemen
will live long enough to learn it also. I
shall do what I am ordered. I shall fight
and where lam commanded. But if lam
compelled to Jujht before / am ready , they
shall not hold me responsible. These gentle
men must take the responsibility of their
acts, as lam willing to that of mine. But
they must not throwr their responsibility on
Lieut. Col. Ripley.—We find the fol
lowing with regard to this gallant officer in
the Charleston Courier of yesterday :
It is reported that Lieut. Col. R. S. Rip
ley has resigned. Wc regret the causes
which induced the step, but we cannot be
surprised. Major Ripley was with us at a
time and season when efficient friends were
His experience and qualifications, and liis
practical skill iu artillery, enabled him to
do signal service at a time when we could
uot well hare spared him.
He has deserved well of this Common
wealth, and of all who are charged with its
interests either as a State, or as one of the
“Confederate State.” That he has not been
recognized by all in office as he deserved,
will he considered by the people our misfor
tune rather than his, if the icsuit is his
resignation as reported.
It may become our duty soon to comment
on the causes which induced this and other
acts of late occurrence.
If the President should place Col. Ripley
at the head of some Confederate brigade,
iustead of inexperienced civilians, he will
be doing justice to a meritorious officer and
a service to the country.
A Conneticut Senator Killed.-—L.
\\ . 8. of the Mercury y says that Senator
Foster, ot Connecticut, was une of the killed
at Manassas, lie had come over to see the
tight aud celebrate a victory, but in the pre
cipitation of the flight his carriage was bro
ken to pieces, himself shot, and Ely, his
coin pan 10 u, taken prisoner.
Incident* of the Fljt* l **
We clip the following from the reliable corre
spondence of the Savannah Republican :
I have already related some ot the gallant ex
ploits of our Georgia bovs. Doubtless there are
manv others, if 1 had time aud opportunity to
trace them up. Charles M. Harper, of the Miller
Kirtt-s, (Floyd county) is the hero of one of those
oaring feats which, while they deserve to be
banded down to posterity, will serve to illustrate
the prowess of the southern army. During the
dreadful fight in which the immortal Eighth was
engaged he became separated from the Regiment,
aud was finally taken prisoner by a squad of seven
Federalists.- He submitted gracefully and volun
tarily shared with them the contents of his can
teen. When otie of his own Regiment passed
within hailing distance, he would call to him to
fall in, as it was all over with them. In this way
and by the activity of his captors, some six or
eight Georgians were captured. At length, Har
per, having tipi the hint to his comrades, turned
to his captors and said: “Gentlemen, one good
turn deserves another, and as yo i have taken us
prisoners, we row takejou piisoners—yield or
die.” At the same time he and his friends pulled
down their guns upon them. The Yankees think
ing prudence the better part of valor, submitted
with equal grace to their altered fortunes, and were
marched otf by our boys, and delivered to Gen.
Akin to this exploit is the feat performed by
W. R. Oakley, a lad 17 years old, of Lauderdale
county, Ala He, too, had been taken prisoner,
and his feet and hands tied. He succeeded, after
many efforts, in getling his hands loose, and then,
with his knife he cut his shoes off and slipped the
chain from his feet. He seized a gun and escaped
from where he had been left. Meeting a Yankee,
he ran his bayonet through him, in order to make
him hold his tongue. He had not proceeded far
before he discovered a Federal Colonel surveying
the field from an eminence, and going up to him
as if lie had been one of his own men, he put his
bayonet against him, and said: “You are my
prisoner.” It was Col. Corcoran, of the New
York C'Jth (Irish) Regiment—one of the best in
the Federal service. Oakley who, though quite
young, is of full size, took his sword and carried
him to Little Be&ury, who dubbed him Captain of
a squad and ordered him to take Corcoran and a
number of other prisoners into Manassas.
An attache of the English embassey, at Wash
ington, who was with the Federal army, and wit
nessed the tight, has arrived in Richmond. During
the progiess of the battle, he inquired of a num
ber of officers what would be tlie result of the
conflict. Each and all of them lell certain they
would win the day, except one. “ Upon what do
you base your opinion ?” inquired the Briton.—
“ Upon this, sir,” replied the Federalist, “I have
been watching these Southerners ever since the
battle opened, I have seen divisions broken, and
the brigades rallying and fighting alone. 1 have
seen brigades broken, and the regiments rallying
and fighting alone. I have seen regiments broken,
and the companies rallying and fighting alone;
and 1 have seen companies broken, and the men
rallying and fighting alone. Such men, sir, will
never be whipped.” His judgment has been abun

The Coast of Florida.—To the Editor of the
New York Times:—l am glad to see in this morn
ing's Times, that you are directing the attention of
the Government to the State of Florida. Fernan
dina offers peculiar advantages to the pirates that
infest the Southern coast; it should at once be
taken possession of by our Government. Capt.
Coxeter, one of the pirates who has been so suc
cessful, is a resident of St. Augustine, and formerly
commanded a steamer that plied between Savan
nah Htid the St. John’s liiver; he is quite aware
that the whole of that part of the coast is unpro
tected, and offers very desirable convenience for
the disposal of the vessels he may capture. It
might not be amiss to send a few men to take
charge of the port of St. Augusiine, from which
a large number of guns were stolen, even before
the State passed an Ordinance of Secession, and
carried to Pensacola and Fernaiidina. A small
body of men could easily take possession of St.
Augustine. It would be a salubrious and conven
ient rendezvous lor our smaller vessels employed
as a coast guard. lam well assured bv reliable
persons, who are well acquainted with the State,
that a very large majority of ita inhabitants would
rejoice to sec the authority of the United States
Government restored, and to be relieved from the
usurped dominion of a band of conspirators, who
now control the State, most of whom, from the
Governor down, are natives of South Carolina.
The Jeffersonian, a very respectable Democratic
paper, published at West Chester, Pa., says that
an ardent suppoiter of the present administration
said to the editor of it, a lew days ago:—“lf,”

Confederate States of America, \
Postoffice Department, Contract Bureau, [■
Richmond, Virginia, July 18,1861,
Sir: The legislation of the Government of the

subscribers for single copies, or for more than one
copy or to news dealers who send large orders to
supply subscribers of their own, or the general
trade within the limits of the delivery of postof
fices, other than at the place of publication, are
equally mailable matter, and cannot be sent by
mail carriers or express men without the payment
of postage. They cannot be carried under our
laws, as merchandize to suplv subscribers or the
regular trade, except through the mails or by ex
press or chartered companies, on the payment of

The object of our legislation was to declare wiiat

to be paid on such matter, so as to secure a suf
ficiency of revenue to render the Post Office De
partment self supporting. 11 the law be so con
strued as to allow the transmission and delivery of
papers by express companies or others, to subscri
tiers or dealers at points Other than the place of

others sending their papers by mail as to injure
the circulation of the latter or drive them to the
same means of transmission. And the result would
he, that the Express t’oinpanies would become the
■ rivals ot the Post Office Department, and deprive
it of a large amount of its legitimate revenues, aud
to that extent defeat the object bad iri view by
Congress of making the department self-sustaining.
This reasoning does not apply, however, to books

To lli<‘ Author* of the South.
Now that we must roly on ourselves for our
school books, and literature generally—it becomes
a matter of interest to know who are our Southern
authors, and what books we have printed and in
MS. To meet this difficulty I propose to publish
a complete catalogue of all Southern Books—with
a descriptive title—the name and residence of the
author, with such other information as will be de
sirable in such a catalogue.
To accomplish this object, I respectfully request
all authors who have books printed or in Manu
-1 script, whether miscellaneous, religious or school
1 books, to send me at once the title of their books,
their full name, their address, and the terms on
which their books can be bought, wholesale and
retail, and where these books can be had.
As soon as the necessary material can be pro
cured the catalogue will be published. It will af
ford authors means of bringing their books into
notice, and at the same give the public an oppor
tvnity of knowing what Southern authors we have
and how their books can be had.
Authors sending their names, kc., will enclose
one dollar to assist in defraying the expenses of
publication—tor which they will receive the value
in catalogues when printed. If the work is not
published the money will be refunded.

Destruction Among Lincoln’s Soldiers.—The
Washington correspondence of the New York Ex
press, after a glowing discretion of Mr. Lincoln’s
last levee before the great battle adds :
There is a feature of military life now daily wit
nessed in Washington, which should certainly be
put a stop to, and which last night formed a sad
contrast to the bright festivities of the Presidential
111 sight of the White House, within sound of
the strains of gladsome music, the guests to and
fro were stopped by American soldiers who posi
tively begged for a cent. The majority of these
men were not, as may be supposed, intoxicated,
but were decent in appearance, and two of them,
to my knowledge, were of good intellectual attain
This spectacle of beggary is now so common
that a person, unless attired in uniform, cannot
walk one hundred yards on the main streets of the
Capital of the nation, without witnessing the hu
miliating spectacle of the American soldier reduced
to begging. W’hat may be the cause of this desti
tution among the troops is not my province to en
quire, but that it doese xist is a “ stubborn fact.”

of the Macon Guards, who is now a prisoner iu
Washington, to his father and mother. He says
he is in good spirits and has been well treated.
He says be was hit twice in the battle, but not
wounded. Also says, that R. L. Gray of the same
company is there, & prisoner. It would appear
that he was separated from his company, and fight
ing, as many others did, “on his own hook.” This
was one of the great secrets of our success in the
battle. If a regiment or company were broken
or divided, each man, instead of retiring, took the
responsibility to fight by himself.

OUR MARKET FRUITS.
The supply of Peaches, Apples, Grapes, Water
melons, in short, every thing in the fruit line has
not been exceeded, either in quantity or quality,
in this region. It has been quite common to see
at the same time, numbers of melons weighing
between forty aud fifty pounds—many of these
were from the farm of Asa E. Ernest, Esq., who
on Saturday last, presented two in market, each
weighing fifty-seven pounds. Some of these mel
ons we have seen on their way to Norfolk. Also
many other of our fruits.
We have received a very fine specimen of
Peaches from Solomon R. Johnson, Esq. They
are probably the largest, as a lot, we have ever
seen, and are of the very best quality for preserv
ing. We are not acquainted with the variety, but
it is one that would commend itself to general

THE OLD LEAVEN.
We have heard much of late in regard to for
getfulness of old party ties and issues. We hare
promptly and full) ignored them ourselves, and
had hoped others would do so. We have cordially
given our humble and zealous support to every
department of the Government, although the Ex
ecutive and every member of his Cabinet are (im
properly, we believe) from the ranks of our old po
litical opponents. We venture the assertion, that
the world has never presented a spectacle of great
er magnanimity and disinterested patriotism, than
the one exhibited by the old constitutional, con
servative whigs and democrats of the South. Re
sisting to the last the policy of separate State ac
tion as a remedy for Governmental abuses and sec
tional aggressions—believing that it would be less
safe and effective than united and concerted action
of all the aggrieved States—protesting against
some of the devices and expedients by which a
popular verdict was obtained—they nevertheless
promptly acquiesced in that verdict and have
been first and foremost in their labors and contri
butions to render it effective. Their country in
peril, they have not stopped to enquire who is re
sponsible for this terrible state of things, but have
nobly rallied to its rescue.
In view of these facts, one would suppose that
the old leaven of party proscription should have
been purged from the people, or at least been
suflfered to remain dormant until our calamities
are over. This, however, it seems,ls not the case.
The name of Dr. W. A. Mathews, of Fort Valley,
having been suggested as a candidate to represent,
in the next Legislature, the 23d Senatorial District,
which is composed of Houston, Taylor and Craw
ford, a writer, in the Telegraph , says, that “while
I esteem the Doctor as a man, I do not admire
him as a politician,and, therefore,could not support
Now we have no intimation of what are the
wishes and intentions of Dr. Mathews upon this
subject. Hut we should consider the District most
fortunate in securing the services of so pure a
patriot and experienced a legislator as that gentle
man is known to be. We would, in the most kind
and respectful manner, urge upon tjie people to
discountenance all efforts to stir up old party feel
ings and prejudices. Let us for once regard and
treat each oilier as brethren, and support those
for office who are most meritorious, without re
gard to old party antecedents.
Col. Dixon 11. Milks, 2d U. S. Infantry, who
commanded the 5,000 Reserves at Centreville, has
been arrested for drunkenness. The Cincinnati
Commercial says he “is believed to be a sympa*
thixer with secession,” and ought to be shot.
The Ekeikld Rules. —The New Orleans Cres
cent says there is not a particle of truth in the
report that fifty thousand Enfield rifles bad armed
l n that city from England.
An exchange thus explains the handcuff matter:
“All large armies are troubled more or less with
mutinous 9oldier c , and carry with them the means
of subduiDg such in their own ranks. These hand
cuffs were for this and no other purpose. Xerxes
forced his barbarians to fight by the application of
the lash. Scott, in Mexico, carried hand cuffs with
bis army, and when certain men deserted, and
were caught again, put irons on them, and had
Catholic Chaplains called in to instruct them to
stand firm, and do their duty.”
We gladly acknowledge this solution of the
matter. The general testimony of our soldiers,
who have fallen into the hands of the enemy is,
that they have been kindly treated. Enough ot
bitterness on both sides already naturally exists,
without multiplying or exaggerating the causes.
It certainly upeaks badly for their cause and army
when the enemy has to resort to such harsh and
degrading means to keep soldiers in the service
their country. V\ hat a pleasant contrast is pre
sented by the Confederate Army.
A NOBLE EXAMPLE.
Robt. Orr, of Coweta, and Joseph E. Morrow, of
Heard, have been proposed as candidates lor Tax
Collectors of their respective counties, and pledge
themselves to devote the salary accruing to them
by virtue of that office to the relief and support of
the volunteers from their county. Who will imi
tate their patriotic example? If every Tax Col
lector and county official, and official at Villedge
ville were to do the same our volunteers would be
abundantly provided for. — Telegraph.
We have heard it urged also that our Judges
and Attorney Generals should remit a part or the
whole of their salary, particularly as they have
performed but little official labor, and are not like
ly to do so for some time to come. It is not every
State or couuty official, however, that can do so iu
justice to bis “ own household.” Those who are
able and willing to indulge in such liberality will
be commended for so doing, whilst those who are
not should not be proscribed or censured. Asa
general thing “ county officials” are not overbur
dened with riches, and many worthy and compe
tent men might be driven from office, to the det
riment of the public interest, by adopting the poli
cy recommended by our neighbor. In voluntary

all important points.

called to entertain and promote the object of his
mission, that our cavalry were particularly in need
of suitable arms. Capt. N. especially solicited the
co-operation of the clergy, to urge upon their
congregations the contribution of turplus arms,
wherever it was practicable. A committee, com
posed of all the ministers of this city, was appoint
ed to take the matter into consideration. The
committee, subsequently in consultation, ascer
tained that the proclamation of Gov. Brown, of
the 26th ult., covered the whole ground. Unwil
ling to adopt any plan that might embarrass or
conflict with the Executive recommendations, the
committee addressed him a note, and have re
ceived the following reply:
Executive Department, i
Atlanta, Aug. 2d, 1801. j
Rev. E. IU. Barren
Dear Sir: — l am directed to reply to your
favor of July 31st, by stating that the Governor
would be pleased to have the aid of the clergy of
the State, in procuring arms from our citizens for
the use of the volunteers who are tendering their
services. He does not desire however to interfere
with the success of Capt. Nolan, in obtaining
guns, as he is now endeavoring to do. The Gov
ernor is gratified by the iuterest manifested by
you in this very important measure, and hopes
that you and others will give this movement all
the aid in your power. Very respectfully,
W. H. HUNT, Aid de Camp.
Rev. E. W. Warren, Macon, Ga.
We doubt not, the clergy all over the State, will
direct attention to this important subject, and give
it the proper direction, and their hearty co-opera
tion, iu promoting the mission of Capt. Nolan.
