THE Diterr.The following we

"Father Abraham's scourge—a
disease which broke out nearly
three years ago, and at one time
threatened to be especially virulent,
amide its appearance in this city
during the past week. The diag
nosis of the disease has not chang
ed. The •victims are notified of
the approach of the epidemic by a
premonitory call from Father
Abraham, followed by a slight
spasm of Fry on Quotas. Then
follows -a twinge of enrollment, and
.a sicrvous tendency to "cuss" the
present. Administration. Then an
attack of Provost Marshal, Blind
Man, and Wheel, which superin
duces a cold sweat. The epidem
ic has carried off hundreds already.

of poultice of greenbacks will

In the Fifth Ward the epidemic
has seized upon a few distingaish

and if it should carry them off we
will with great pleasure record the
incidents connected with their de
parture. The Youthful Yard, the
rilliant Binney, the Costive Corn

Convivial Clayton, the Kinky
Knight, the Wonderful Wagner,
the Hilarious Honzey, and Patriot

unexpectedly. To these Loyal
lovers of Miscegenation we com
mend a perusal of the story of the
old Hunter who very carefully set
a trap to catch a bear, and was
caueit in it himself.

Quite the contrary. indeed, we
have heard Republicans proclaim
the draft as an abominable
nuisance, an outrage, and an usur

Sherman has had lately two severe
battles with the enemy in North
Carolina. One of the battles was
foue:ht near Averyshorol, and the oth
es at Bentonville. Our loss at the
former is said to have been between
3,0('0 and 4,000, while that of the en=
emy scarcely that many hundred.—
Of the losses at Bentonville no fig
ures are given. The following are
the particulars of both battles as far
as received :
General Sherman appears to have
aimed at the capture of both Raleigh
and Goldsboro. The. Confederates,
however, have made a defense of Ra
leigh ; chocked Sherman's march in
that direction, and compelled him to
turn eastward. Wlien Sherman left
Fayetteville.. his commemd was divid
ed into three columns. He left Fay
etteville on March 14. The western
column marched northward along
the Cape Fear River towards Raleigh.
The centre marched northeast to
wards Bentonsvillc with the inten
tion of capturing tile railroad bridge
near there on whiciti the Raleigh and
Goldsboro railroad crosses the Neuse.
The eastern column, believed to be
composed principally of cavalry, in
clined further to the east and march
ed towards the Wilmington and Wel
don railroad, south of Goldsboro.—
Schofield with his largo army at
Kinston, was ordered on March 14 to
move west towards Goldsboro, and
General Terry, with all the troops at.
Wilmington, together with the rein
forcements that had arrived there
during the past two weeks, was or
dered to march northward along the
Wilmington and Weldon railroad, to
wards Goldsboro, eighty miles dis
The Confederates prepared for
these movements and on March 16th
stationed - all their' available troops
at Averysboro, on the Cape Fear riv
er, thirty five miles south of Raleigh,
directly in the way of Sherman's
western column, which was advancing
northward from Fayetteville toward
Raleigh. Here, on March 16, was
fought the severe contest, of Averys
boro. The Confederates were in
trenched on the eastern side of Cape
Fear river. Hardee commanded.—
The fighting began on the 15th, and
skirmishing was earried.on during all
that afternoon and night but the bat
tle did not beginunti4thellSth. The
fighting was desperate. Bragg com
manded the western .flank,of the Con
federate line. Sherman made re
peated assaultis upon the Confeder
ate position, and each, time was re
pulsed. At dark on :the 16th' the,
Confederates held their position.—
Sherman, on the 17th, turned to the
eastward, and the column marched
to Ben tonsvil le, twenty miles distant,
to join the Federal centre.
As soon as the Confederates dis-
covered that Sherman . had turned
aside, they abandoned their camp at
Averysboro, and began to march east
ward also. Both the Federal and
Confederate armies wire moving to
wards Bentonsville. On March 19th,
the Federal centre reached that place
and was soon reinforced by the west•
ern column from Averysboro. Bragg
and Hardee also arrived and rein
forced Johnston, and at four in the
afternoon Sherman's. tamp was as
saulted, and he was driven back a
mile, several hundred prisoners being
captured. Here he intrenched him
self and lay all night. On the morn
ing of the 20th the contest was re
newed, but after brisk artillery fir
ing, the battle lulled, No assaults
were made by either army, and both
lay on their arms on the night of the
20th. The neighborhood of Bentons-
vine will be the sent's, no doubt, of a
fierce conflict.
On March 19th, the Confederates
evacuated Goldsboro', removing all
their 'items and property. They
marched up the Nouse and halted in
tho rear of Bentonsville, which is
twenty miles west of kinSton. On
March 21st, the Confeilerates had all

was easy-, and the Confederates hav

and charged up the bill to Fort Stead

out and the- guns in the fort were
turned upon the rest of the Federal
line. - General McLaughlin, die com
mander of Fort Steadman, was cap

body of Confederates made, a charge
upon Fort Haskell. It was intended
merely as a movement to cover the

from other parts of the. Fe

Confederates were driven 'out, and

brisk fighting all along, the line in

run, General Humphrey's,. With the
Second corps, attacked the Corifeder-'
ates and captured aboutone hundred
prisoners. • This prevented them from
sending reinforcements from that
part of the line. Nearly three'thou

There is no sort of men in all this
country whoought to be so thorough
ly despised by good soldiers as the
war sneaks. These creatures are the
meanest cowards, alive. They cry
out war but do not go. -They thirst
for blood, but shudder at thee-thought
of spilling one .drop of -their-own.—
They want the rebels exterminated,-
but won't help to exterminate them.
They are opposed to "compromising
with traitors," but afraid to fight
them. They are great -friends of the
soldiers, but never - go to help them
on the field of battle. They "support
the government," by stealing frotn it.
Tey believe that every citizen owes
its service, therefore they give ittheir
breath, but demand that all others
shall give their bodies. They heti
that it is our solemn •duty to carry
on the war as long as there is a, man
or a _dollaai left; but-their distyton
sista not in going 'themselves, bet in
damning everybody else who don't
go. They believe all Democrats trai
tors; and they would like to seo all of
them drafted and put in the army, be
cause the worst traitors alwa y s make
the best soldiers.
These are the views and the char
acteristics of the war sneaks—the
meanest, the most contemptible, the
most hypocritical, the most malig
nant, and the most- cowardly -urea
tures-alive; creatures for whom every
brave and manly soldier most feel
the utmost contempt.
It is hardly necessary to add what
is well known to all that the war
sneaks are unanimous and enthusias
tic in their support of Lincoln.—Ex.

IT is well known to the medical profession that
IRON is the Vital Pe inciple or Life Element of the
blood. This is derived chiefly from the food we eat ;
but if the food is not properly digested, orif, from
any cause inhatever , the necessary quantity of iron is
not taken into the circulation,
or becomes reduced, the
whole system suffers. The bad blood will irritate the
heart, will clog up the lungs, will stupefy the brain,
will obstruct the liver, and will send its diseasepro•
ducing elements to all parts of the system, and every
one will suffer in whatever organs may be predisposed
to disease.
