Bdtlik Preparatory 10 the seoond iavMion of Nortk Carolina by Lord Corn wallis, Major James Henry Craig, e«bsequently Gov ernor General of Canada, at the head of a soiall body of troops, assisted I y a naval armament, under the command ef Capt. Karclay, captured Wilmington on ihe 29th January 17M. Lord Cornwallis eatoring the State from South Carolina, orossed the Catawba on the 1st February at Cowan’s Ford, where Gen. Davidson fell, in a gallant but ineffectual attempt to resist the passage of the river. The memorable retreat ef Gen. Greene across the State into Virginia, and his almost tfflmediaie return to North Carolina, are /aaiiliiir events to all readers of revolutionary history. On the 26ih February Lord Cornwallis issued a proclamation which, after reeiting his “driving the rebel army out of this province,” invites “all faithtul and loyal subjects to im pair without loss of time, with their arms and ten days’ provisions, to the royal standard now erected at Hills boro,” and nnite with him in effectual measures to sup- presd “the remains of rebellion” ia the province. With Wilmington, our commercial emporium, and Hillsbo rough, the seat of governmont, in his possession, and no osganued body of forces to resist his onward pro gress, h« seems to have supposed that ten, iastead of Ur. Seward's nintty, days would suffice to crush out “A« Ttvmwt of rebtUion " Oo the 15th Maroh he achieved the fatal victory at Guilford Court House; from thence he passed by Fayetteville to Wilmington, where he arrived on the 7 th April, and on the lOtb, in a despaich to Sir Henry Clintoa, summed up the results of the campaign as follows: “I cannot help expressing my wishes that, ihe Chesapeake may become the seat of war, even (if necessary) at the expense of abandoning Kew York. Until Yirginia is in a manner subdued, cur hold ol the Ca'olinas must be difficult if not preoariou|^ The rivers in Virginia are advantageous to ao invading army; but North Carolina is of all the provisoes in America the most difficult to attack (unless material as sistance could be got from tbo Inhabitants, the contrary of which I have suSicienilj experienced,) cn aoocuat of its great extent, of the numberless rivers and creeks, and the total want of Interior navigation.” He remained in Wilntingtoa until about the close of the month, and on the 14th May crossed the Meherrin,^or the parpese of forming a junction with Gen. PhlllipsSkt Petersburg. A comparison of the course of events and the condi tion of affwirs in North Carolina, now and then, might afford much food for rdlection and substantial reasons for congratulation and en.our:>gement. Oar purpose at present, however, is simply to exhibit record evidence of the charsictcr of the warfare waged against us by the mother country in 1781, as coniraated with the humanity of our sister States, 80 years thereaf ter. To find a parallel for the latter, we must revert to the history of the middle ages. Xeaophou, whose famous re treat at the head of the Ten Thousand, 22 centuries ago, has been compared to that of Qen Greene from the Catawba to the Roanoke, by one of our own writers, familiar with ancient and modern history, instead of burning mills and mamifaoturies and the destrnction of agricultural implements, secured the peaoeful tillers of the soil, in the hostile regions through which he passed, from lAolestation Lord Cornwallis was the ablest of the British commanders who attempted our subjugation, during the American Revolution The fal lowing orders issued by Lim at the several datts pre fixed, shew (hat he was as humane and chivalrous as he was bra^e and able They are copied from the man uscript Order Book of Lord Ccruwaliis, in the posses sion of a friend of sure: “EnAVQCAKTBBB, Castba&d's Plastatiok, 2d Feb’y 1781. "OrcUrt.—Lord Cornwallis is highly displefcsed that agveral houses were set on fire during the maroh this day, a disgrace to the army, and that he will panish with the u'.most sevmty any person or persons who shall be found guilty of conxnitting so disgraceful an outrage. His Lordship requests the commanding offi oers of corps will endeavor to find oat the persons who set fire to the houses this day.” *‘Headquab.txss, SALiSBrnr, 5th Feb’y 1781 “It is with great oonoern that Lord Cornwallis ac quaints the army that he has lately reci>ived the most shocking eomplaints of the excetses vommitted by the troops. He calls in the most .^erions manner on tbe ofiicers commanding Brigades and Corps to put a stop to this lioentiouBness, whioh must inevitably bring dis grace ana ruin on His Stlujeaty’s service. He is con vinced that it is m their power to prevent it, and ha^ seen so many prcots ol their zzal for ibe serviue of their country that he cannot doubt of their utmost exertions to detect and punish ottendora. without .wKUk of the brave and deserving snidicro wiii b» ak»J u» T»ia, and it will not be even in the power of victory to give 8UCOCB8. , , “Great complaints having been made of negroes straggling from the line of march, plunderiag and using violence to the inhabitants, it Is Lord Cornwallis’ posi tive orders that no negro shall be suffered to carry arms on an^ pretence, and all officers and other persona who employ negroes are desired to acquaint them that the Provost Marshal has received orders to seize and pun Leh on the spot any negro following the army who may otTend against this regulation.” “HBAByuAKxaas, Dobbim’s Hocsb, \ 17th Feb’y 1781. / “Lord CornwaUia id very sorry to be again obliged to call the atieniion of the Ottioers of tiKfAncy 10 the repeated orders agaiDst plundering. He deatres that the orders given on the 28th Jan’y, 4th Fab’y, and the 16th Feb’y, may be read at the head of each Troop and Company cn each of the three first halting days, and he aseureri the ofUcers, that if their duty to their King and country, and their feelings for humanity, are not sufficient to enforce their obedience to them, he must, however reluctant, make use of such power as the mili tary laws have placed in his hands.” ' Bbioadk MoRMina Oanxas, 2d March 1781. *‘A foraging party, consisting of one Officer, two Ser geants, two Corporals, and twenty-four Privates, to assemble at the guns thia morning at eight o’clock, with tbe Battalion horsea- “Notwithstanding every order, every entreaty, that Lord Cornwallis has given to the army to preveiit the shameful practice of plundering and distressing the couftry, and those o/dera backed by every effort that can have been made by Brigadier General O’Hara, he is shocked to find this evil still prevails, and ashamed to observe that the frequent complaints he receives from Headquarters of the irregularity of the Guards, particu larly affects the credit of this oori«i. He therefor* calls upon the officers, noB-oommlsaioBed offioera, and thoec men who are 7*t poaafcsseck of the fealinga of humanity si^ and every one found absent to be Immediately whipped and drummed out of the brigade. “The Commandants are desired to proofed to the trial of those men offending yesterday, and to put the sen tence of the Coart Martial in execution immediately, in the preRence of all the officers. “N. B. The women to attend all piiniahments.” Tbe following extracts from Tarleton’s Campaigni) (p. 290) relates to the last official daty performed by Lord Cornwallis within our borders, and is in keeping with all that w^ know of his previous course Tarleton was always spoken of as “the cruel” and frequently “the Bloody Tarleton.” most unjustly, however, if the mildest of modern Northern Generals in the depflrtments of Virginia and Nonh ('arolina be selected as a standard for oomparison. More properly in point of value was destroyed by the raiders between W’ashiugton and R}cky Mount thau by Lord Cornwallis, in his throe months’ campaign, traversing the State in two different direc tions, and marching upwards of (k)0 miles “On the arrival of some country people, Earl Corn wallis directed Lieutenant Colonel Tarleton to dismount his dragoons and mounted infaittry, and to form them into a rank entire, for the convenient inspeoticn of the inhabitaots, ^cd to faciliiate t^e discovery of the vil lains who bad committed atrocious outrages the preced- i»e evening A sergnsnt and one private dragoon were pointed out and acoused o# rape and robbery. They were couducted tc Halifax, where they weie condemned to death by martial law. The immediate inflict ion of the jentence exhibited to tbe arm^ and manifested to the country the discipline and justice of the British General.” This example was rendered more imposing by the fact, that Col. Tarleton’s legion had advanced four miles beyond Halifax, when the miscreants were detected, and the legion required to return. The whole army was de layed an entire day, in order to carry oat the sentence of the Court Martial. Two orders of earlier date than those given above, and one of the 16th of February, are omitted to avoid occupying too great a space in our columns Tbb Dahlqrkn DocrMBNTS.—From the manner in which the yankee papers received aud published the “Order” of Gen. Dahlgren to bum Richmond aud kill President Davis and his Cabinet, we infer that even they for onoe blushed for the monstrous barbarity of their sys tem of. warfare—blushed all the more, doubtless, be cause of the failure of the diabolical purpose The Richmoni papers state that only one, and that a Phila delphia paper, made any remark upon the subject. As to the New York Herald, that paper, while it could dot sanction the Ordd*, endeavored tw break the force of the shocking exposure by saying:— “It is not believed here that tha;taVcised words, and J«ff, Davis and Cabinet killed ” were contained in the original order, but were interpolated by the enemy in order to intiame the passions of thdir own 83idt«rs, who are becoming lukewarm.” The disappointment of the yankee nation at the fail ure of tbe raid seems to be accounted for by the dis- V closure of the confident expectation they entertained of its resulting in the capture of Klchmond The follow ing was published iu the TribQne of the 4th:— The la'est dispatch from ivilpatrick to Gen. Pleas- onton, dated Spottsylvania C. H., Sunday morning 11 o’clock, states that he crossed the ttapidan at Ely's Ford at 4 o’clock A. M., Sunday, surprised the r«bel pickt:t« aaleep, aud captured a Captain, Lieutenant and fifteen men. The ooaoiuding words of hi* dispatch were: “Twaaty miles nearer Hiohmond, and &li right. Will double my bet of $5,000 that 1 enter Rictusond.” CAHmu&Txa FOB CoMoasss —We have already noted the nomination of Mr. Ashe in the 7th District the people of Anson.

Small Pox.—Aiuodk the evilaof iheyaBkea invaalon The Recognition Rumor* —The London Morning Post of the 29th alt. in ua city article continues to assert tlie lotantion of France to shortly reoognixe the Confederate States. It says: “The private advices from Paris, up on which we belinve ralianoe caa be placed, agaia al lude to the negotiatioBs now in progresa preparatory to a reeogaition of the Confederate Stataa of America bj the French Government, although aay official acknow ledgment of thia fact would at thia moment be tbought premature and undeairable.” A Double Campaign —The 14th New Hamahire regi ment, which was under orders tor the Gulf, it appears has received a later order to “report” in New Hampshire for the purpose of voting the Abolition State ticket. The eleotiOB will take pt*** •« —•*» of the South, is the very genaral diaaimi»«^>oB of Uiia'1 several regimeuui have already been ordered home to “Thi Voice or tbb Pbbss.”—Under this head the Raleigii Confederate saya that that voice, “both in this State and in others of the Confeaeracj, apeaka but one sectimeBt as to Mr. Holden’a oandidaoy; and that ia ad verse, to hia preteosions. Every where he is looked upon with disiruat and repugnance.” Even ihe “Conservative” Atlanta Register, which has been claimed as belonging to the Standard’s peaoe party, turns a very oold shoulder to Mr. Hoiden, in auoh lan guage as the following: “Holden, the editor of the North Carolina Standard, who ia but justly, aa we think, denounced aa a danger ous malcontent, if not absolutely untrue to the cause of the Confederaoy, baa issued another sheet of his paper, (the publication of which waa recently suspended ) in which he announced himself aa a candidate for Governor of North Carolina, itt the ensuing August election. * * ♦ There la a teat of loyalty which uur obaerva- tion ia this revolution haa led us to believe almoat ^n fallible, it ia not the seniimenta a man professes, but thoeo he onmte to profess, which ottcnest denote him truly In tbe card of Holden, announcing himaeif, there is not one word of sympathy for the cause of ultimate triumph of our arms, not one word of en couragement for the brave men who have drawn the sword, and thrown away the scabbard in defence of our rights * * * I’^e db not believe a man who had a spark of patriotism or sympathy for the t’onfederate cause in hia composition, owuld fratae a card for a^imi- lar purpose, even as brief aa Holden's, without giving some expression of it.” This Atlanta Register is the originator and organ of what the Holden party in this State call the Georgia Peace party, hoping to croate an impreasion that they have colaborers in Georgia. The Register very em phatically coatradiota this notion in closing the article from whioh we have quoted above, as follows: ‘■Such of our coteoiporariea persist in aacribiog te the doctrlnea of thia journal a parallelism with those ot the North Carolina Standard, are either actuated by a loathsome disease, which waa of rare occurrence South, of the PotOEcac until the yankeea came.

A DisTmoTiOR wiraocT a Dir^BBBHOB.—A Minister of the Methodist Church writes us that by the tax law of last year he ia required to pay $160 tax on hia in eofoe of $3000 aa a Minister, whilat a Preabyterian Miniater in the aame place paya but $80 tax on hia tal ary ef $3000. The oonatroction of the law which pro duces this aingaiar result ariaea, he aaya, from tne fact that, whilst the Presbyterian Church obligates itself to PV the Pastor $8000, and he could coliecfc that saUry by lair, the Methodist Minister has no persoB bound to lum. It ia a mere reoommeBdatioa by the Church that the Minister be paid $1006 Quarterage for clothing and $2000 for table expenses. Bat at the close of the year each haa received his $3000. The one is oh lied salary, the other income. The tax ob aalarica ia 1 per ceBt., $80; ob iBoomes 6 per oeat, $150. Our correapondent asks if we think this right? Cer tainly we do not.
