I atlod to the Moore Hospital, on Main and under the charge of a distinguished North-Carolina Surgeon, aided by two excellent assistants fom the same State. This institution is filled almost exclusively by North-Carolina patients. It would fill many an anxlowt heart with gratitude in that good old State to witfiess the tender kindness and care with which their wowwded friends are treated by the physicians and attendants- here. Owing to the indefatigable efforts: of DY. Manson and the excellent Steward, Capt Freeman, the provision department is equal if not superior to airy hospital in te city, thereby contributing to the comfort and convalescence of many an ui fortunate languishes This advantage, however, is mainly owing to private con tributions in the in -consequence of the acquaintance of the Surgoori in-Chief with many prominent and public spirited persons.

I ask, if it is not objectionable to North-Carolina and her citizens at home, that an institutron doing so much- for her brave sons who are suffering away fronj home shall be dependent for its advanlfa-gcs and thir comforts upon the charity of others? Are not North Carolinians wrfhug nr.d ready to- tender material aid at such a time ami under such drcumnlanees If the State authorities have overlooked such strong claims upon State synij aihy and State aid, I know that the public, who are incapable of injustice or eluded wouia give you seen and done since we left our camps above lvin-ston. On the evening of the 19th of June, Ootaiel Vance announced to his regiment the fact that on the morrow wo would leave for Richmond to take a part in the great struggle for freedom and independence, followed by a short and patriotic address, which was received by his bovs with shouts of exultation.

Then in addition to all that there was at least four Yankees in their ditches shooting dtliberately at us, to one of us, trying, under every disadvantage, to run them-out.

So our brave and quick discerning Colonel seeing the murderous fire poured into our ranks, and the: impracticability of capturing! the battery, immediately ordered a retreat, which was. executed with as good oiider as circumstances would allow, our reciment only falling back out of range of their. about midnight, and were marched io the capitol TKiis it. will nerceived. that in these three en 0TTI nfnvm v-m SUBSTITUTES FOR THE ARMY (kME OBTAIN- ed in tins sect the subscriber, bwift Island, Montgomery, N.

i 25 and slept on its beautiful grounds. Here, we received many attentions from the citizens of Richmond, and especially from Gov. Letcher, who threw open his doors to us and invited us to share of his hospitalities. Next morning we left for the "Seven Pines," the noted field of battle of the 30th and 31st of May. Arriving in one mile of the battle field, we were stopped to refresh ourselves a little, and then marched down to where a spirited engagement was going on between our forces and the Yankees.

Our reginunt was toon thrown into line of battle, and has been so ever since, until now, except when marching through mud and water, undergoing all sorts of hardships, being without tents and a good deal of the time drenched with rain all of which we have endured as good soldiers, ready and willing to do and sutler all thing for the good of our country At Seven Pines, we had several severe skirmish fights with the Yankees, always driving them back, and advancing our line of pickets, until Sunday morning, when took possession of their entire camps and breastworks, and planted our flag upon their splendid ramparts. One engagement at this place deserves especial notice. Our regiment had advanced about one mile to where the enemy were throwing up entrenchments, drove them out, taking possession of the same, and capturing all of their spades and pick-axes, and a nuoiber of guns. We occupied these entrenchments all day, or until about sunset, when the 24th N. C.

Regiment was sent to relieve us. About the time it arrived, and we were leaving the entrenchments, the Yaukecs poured in a heavy volley of musketry upon us, but without doing us much No sooner was this done, than our brave Col. Vance called to his men ta rally again to the entrenchments, which was obeyed promptly.

Hester and E. B. Lyon, who reported as follows Whereas, we havfe no regular ticket before the people to represent Granville in the next Legisla ture, and that said delay in nominating candidates has been to prevent party-strife, and that we now denounce any intention to stir up strife.

Resolved, That we offer the names of the following gentlemen for the support of the people of Granville, to represent us in the next Legislature, viz: For the Senate, R.

At a meeting of the Raleigh Typographical Society, held this evening, the following preamble and resolutions were adopted: WHEREAS, Almighty God has seen fit to call from the theatre of mortality to a hieher world.

Cantain hundred and forty-six in killed and wounded, out oi less than 400 who entered the ac ionin other regi- roent charged upon the same battery and shared the same.fate of ours, not; even being able to get to their "en trenchmjents for the obstructions thrown the way. But our troops swept othep portions of the field, and by tlank movements weT would have driven the last foe frojn the field if the mantle of night had not closed the scene. We all slept upon the field, the dead and wounded around us. From our little renosei the dawn of theTth called us, and again into line qf battlei we were placed." Our whole brigade (Pender's) now charged upon the same battery, throwing oursel es under the protection of our batteries, aif it was amusing to see theui skipping their fortifications and, fleeing to the bushes and ravines for shelter and protection from the keen eyes even of our boys, Though our loss was heavy, yet a general shout of, victory went up from every heart as we stood victors upon the field, knowing that thousands of Yankees were in a stampede, calling upon their young Napoleon' 1 to save them from the; cold steel of ou brave Southern boys. THe Yankees, you will recollect, were in camp all akng3down the North side of the Chicka-hominy for miles, their batteries And fortifications fronting; KichnjonA Instead of -crossing the river in front of these fortifications, ashey expected, we commenced our as before stated! on their extreme right and having put them to flight in the "first fight, as we have described, we commenced our march down the North side of the river after them, passing through camps upon camps, finding commissary, quartermaster and sutler's stores in great abundance, anfall kinds, of equipments, accoutrements, and ordnanee stores, together with every species of Yankee tricks and notions.

On wc marched for hours without molestation, passing through this Yankee city of camps until about three o'clock in which his regiment has been engaged, seldom if Killed. Wounded, Missing, ever surpassed by any omcer, walking up and down the line of battle encouraging his men, and hallooing to the blue-coats to come oh. Col. Vance is one of the men who always says, "come boys," and not "go," as a great many do, always keeping themselves out of danger. A braver man never lived and he has a heart in his bosom that feels for the poor soldier, and he is ever rewly to do any thing and every thing he can, to render his men pleasant and agreeable.

all love him, and will die round bim it need be. Long may he live to enjoy the gratitude and smiles of those who have been so intimately connected with him in camp for the last 12 months. The Yankees in their stampede at the Total, 255 G. L. DUDLEY, Capt.

PUBLIC MEETING IN ROBESON. 41 According to previous notice, a number of the citizens of Robeson county met in the Court House in Lumbertion on the 4th when on motion M.ij. W.

J. Brown was called to the Chair and L. C. Ray, requested to act as Sec'y. Thos.

A. Norment, Esq explained the object of the meeting, and moved that a committee of five be appointed for the purpose of drafting resolutions expressing the sentiments of the same. The foliowing gentlemen were appolntep, viz: John Caldwell, Reuben Rozier, Rory McNair, Hector McNeill and W. W. Powell.

Thos. A. Norment was called upon and addressed the meeting in a few appropriate remarks, advocating the election of Hon. Z. B.

Vance as Governor of N. showing by his past actions since our struggle for independence, that he was the man calculated to watch over and secure our rights, as he believed him to possess an honest heart, a clear head, and undaunted patriotism. Col. T. J.

Morisey, Rory McNair, Neill McNeill and Rev. N. M. Ray were called upon, and addressed the meeting. Each' speaker rejoiced that old party lines had been extinguished, and that the- people were united in their efforts to secure their independence and they advocated tho principle of selecting our Rulers for their moral and intellectual worth, and not for the advancement of party.

The committee who were appointed to draft resolutions, returned, and through their chairma-i, Rory McNair, reported the allowing, which were unan- imuusly adopted 1st. Tbavwc now, as we ever have done, regard the independence of the Southern Confederacy as a fixed fact, and the complete defeat, overthrow, cenfusien and disgrace of Yankeedom as equally certain. 2d. That Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States, and the brave soldiers who have borne the heat and burden of the day in defending our rights, have not only our unbounded confidence but our warmest affections. 3d.

That while we will ba watchful of our rights and firm in our political opinions, we believe the time has arrived when reason, not prejudice, should control our public views and movements and whilst we of the South may diSeron some points of minor importance, we stand together as a band of brothers to resist the invasions of our base, beastly, and cruel foe. 4th. That we will give our cordial support to Hon. Z. B.

Vance for Governor of N. believing him to be eminently qualified to till that distinguished office, possessing as he does a clear head, an honest heart, experience as a statesman, and patriotism and courge as a soldier. Resolved, That we earnestly desire the election of Giles Leitch, in the Senatorial District corn-posed of Robesou and Richmond, believing that he knows our rights and will daro maintain them and that we equally desire the election' of' Col. McRae and Neill McNeill, to represent this county in the Commons of the next General Assembly in this State. Rtsolved, That the proceedings of the meeting be published in the Fayetteville Observer, and that the Raleigh Standard and Wilmington Journal be requested to copy.

In consequence of the impracticability of holding a general County Convention at the Court House, (the enemy being in possession of the town of Washington,) a respectable portion of the citizens of Beaufort county met at the Chocowinity Cross Roads, in said county, on Tuesday, the 8th of July. When, on motion, Col.

Samuel T. Carrow was called to the Chair, and Benj. F. Harding, was requested to act as Secretary. The Chairman stated that the principal object of the meeting was to agree upon some candidates to represent Beaufort county in the ensuing General Assembly.

Benjamin Patrick, then arose and stated that so far as he bad been able to ascertain the wishes of the people lrom tho different sections of the county, there was but one opinion and that was that the Hon. R. S. Donnell and Capt. William T.

Marsh should be re-elected to represent Beaufort county in the House ofCommons, and that as our late and faithful Senator, Frederick Grist, EsqM has refused to allow bis, name to be presented to the people for he -knew of no one whose name would give more general satisfaction throughout the whole county and to the soldiers in the camp, than E. J. Esq. Hervey Hill, seconded the nominations, and said; be felt proud that Beaufort county coald send veh a delegation to the next Legislature. He entertained no doubt but that their nomination would be hailed with acclamation throughout every precinct in the county and by the soldiers in the camp.

Resolved, That whilst we would have wished that he might escaped the ordeal of blood," yet in our grief we are solaced by the reflection that as he was one among the first to accept the invitation to' the banquet of death, he died as becomes a true soldier, willingly offering up his lite upon the altar of his who with his dying breath exclaimed, They' have killed me, boys but go ahead, they cannot kill you all."

All; seemed busy infthis awjul scene thousands upon thousands were hurling the missiles of death-; it seepied as though the heavens were raining bullets and balls hundred were engaged in carrying the wounded to the rear, and scores of ambulance were running, conveying them away to the hospital. Thus thare was the commingling roar of cannon and musketry blending with the groans of the mangled and wounded until near dusk, when all this horrible noise of misery and death died away, to be followed by the thrilling notes of praise and loud shouts of victory that rang through hill and dale from many thousand hearts wild with the joy of victory. Wlien- bravo Southern boys made the last-grand charge, which swept the whole field and routed every Yankee that was able to such yells and enthusiastic screams and shouts of joy never rose upon ny field of victory. Again we slept victors upon a. hard won fie.d, while the enemy sought repose nd safety, no doubt- at a considerable distance away.

We then amused ourselves at seeing the Yankee prisoners pass? on in regiments, companies, battalions and squads all bound for Richmond.

The 26lh regiment went into the action yelling at tho top of their voices, and the field of battle snowed next morning what part she had taken in the conflict, when several of her boys were found dead in fifty paces of the Yankee battery.

The firing ceased about midnight, leaving the Confederates in possession of the field. The Yankees left by' daylight next morning, and our forces are still in pursuit. To those who have not been accustomed to look upon the field of battle the scene is awful, and I long to see a termination of these hostilities, and peace restored to our country once more. It affords me much pleasure to state that all our field officers a well as the company commanders behaved with marked, bravery. Providence seems to have smiled upon us, and I am happy to state that the loss of our regiment is slight.

Mann, being announced, a committee was appointed to draft a preamble and resolutions expressive of the feelings of this Lodge on the occasion, which called them together. The committee met and reported the following, which was unanimously adopted: Whekeas, The outer door of our mystic circle has again bee.

alarmed by the solemn note that betokens the exit of a spirit from its earthly tabernacle, and the spirit of our beloved and most res-pected Worshipful Master has gone to the celestial Lodge above where our fathers have gone, therefore be it Resolved, That while we bow in meek submission to the decxee of the Supreme Architect-of the Unit verse who -doeth all things well0 jet we cannot but mourn the untimely death of our worthy brother, who, in all the varied and changing walks of life was ever distingushed by the puritv of his heart and the integrity of his Christiaa character. Resolved, That in the death of brother, Mann, this Lodge has lost an honored member and, a bright Mason, the Church a pious member, and the com munity an upright and useful his wife and child a loving companion and doting father. Resolved, That while we do wish to intrude on the sacredness of the grief of his wife and only I child, yet we do desire to offer to them our condolence and heartfelt sympathy in their sad hour of deep affliction, and would recommend to- them the consolation, to be derived from the bright testimony which he left behind of the translation of his soul to a higher and happier state of existence beyond the grave.
