FROM TRH iith PINNSYLYAKI REGIMENT,
CAMP_ DICK WHOM, 141tErro ISLAND, S. 0.,1
Monday, March, 10th, 1882. r
Two weeks NO to-day, we received march
ing olden) at' Hilton Head, and on the follow
ing morning, embarked at /3eabrook's landing
on the U. S. trapx)rt steamship Prdutwba, from
whence We eti Bork' aud
- awaited furthe ter dhoti - n*osu was
'thought.to be Savannah, for the next day after
anchoring, we observed the.whole mild fleet
ateap out to-sea that ,direction., But we
were disappointed. After being kept more
than a'week lyat, in the stream, orders came
to sail; and on the following morning found
ourselves MI the mouth of the Edisto riv
er, which stream we entered and ran up sev
eral miles to the landing. At the mouth of
the Edisto river the rebels had erected a bat
tery to command the entrance, but upon the
fall,of ,Port Royal they abandoned it, taking
everything with them. Just above where
their battery was erected is the present site of
a colony of "contrabands," numbering at least
a couple of thousand, who have been deserted
by, and ran away from their masters. They
have erected log huts and appear to live at
ease. As we 'entered the river, they greeted
us with cheers. The steam eloop of war, Cru
sader, is stationed in Edisto river, and cruises
from its , month to the head of navigation as a
guard, boat, the,rebels holding possesidon above
this Island.
Before our arrival the only troops stationed
here, were the N. T. 47th, Col. Moore, and al
though their proximity to a strong rebel force
was rather close, they have not been molested
to any extent. Our arrival cheered the New
Yorkers' very Much. We have pitched our
tante about half a mile to the rear of the land
ing, upon a beautiful location, with cypress and
live, oak groves on all aides of us, and excellent
water just at our doors. Within a mile or two
tiro a numbei of the most Splendid residences
I have yet seen in the South. The nabobs of
these sea islands, comprise some of the wealthiest
men °Oita South, and.the grandeur and luxu
iience in which they lived, contrasts strikingly
with the squalid abodes'and abject appearance
of the slaves. Every plantation bas been aban
doned by, the :whites, who took with them all
the valuables they could carry away. &great
deal they - Could not carry, has been destroyed
by them or their slaies, before our arrival, but
what personal property is left, is being gathered
up by the government agents, to be disposed of
in some way—but, how I am unable to conjec
'tare.
For sometime past the rebels have employed
persons .to come.here and carry off their proper
,ty, such as horses, cattle and slaves, which de
predations were generally performed in the
'night. A report was made to the headquar
ters of the matter and detachments were accord
ingly sent out to try and capture the depreda
tors. One of the parties was successful and cap
'tured ttiolrbilunen named McGrath (brothers),
who were recognized by the contrabands as re-'
gular. "nigger stealers." An intelligent slave
informed me that he knew them well ; they
were owners of a sloop that formerly traded
with the planters here, and for some time back
they had been in the habit of Coming to the is
land and taking the slaves off by force. At one
time they, had about twenty tied together tak
ing them .off ; some of the elaves resisted and
the"-sricGraths deliberately shot three of them
dead-! It was with much difficulty that the
negroes were restrained from shooting the pair
of kidnappers. The party will be conveyed
from here to more secure quarters, where they
Work have an opportunity to play their nefari
ous business for some time to come.'
,The.day of our arrival here, a party of con
trabands,,in attempting to make their • escape
to the main hind, were fired into by the rebel
picketi and two of them instantly killed, and
two severely wounded. A boat from the Ora
sade.r put off to their assistance, and came up
just in time to prevent the capture of the whole
party. The wounded negroes were brought to
to our hospital ; one received a Minie ball in
his thigh,,Which shattered the bone to such an
extent as to tender amputation ; mammary.—
The operation was skillfully perfOrmed by our
surgeon, Dr. David Merrit. The severity of
the wound and the length of time elapsed before
surgical aid could be rendered,..prostzated the
systems° much that. a few hours after the ope
ration, The other who was ses
verely wounded in the shoulder, is now doing
very well under the doctor's care.
Joseph. McKinley, who formerly worked in
the cotton mill in your city, died at Hilton
Head about throe weeks ago, of brain fever.—
When the war broke out young McKinley join
ed CktptainSipee' company in the three months'
service, and afterwards joined Colonel artas'
97th regiment, tromDhester County.
I would like te, give you some war news,
tint that article is a very , scarce comasodity
here. We are stationed a little nearer Charles
ton than the rebels seem to relish ; at least that
is the impression the contrabands tell us they
have of affairs. Every day upon the return of
the Crusader from up the river, boat loads of
" chattels " are placed ashore here in the hands
of theiprovost marshal. They are all separately
questioned as to who their owners were, where
they resided, the force of. the enemy opposite
ug, etc., which answers are' recorded in a book,
and the contrabands sent to " Botany Bay,"
the settlement referred to at the mouth of the
Edisto river.
For some days past the weather has been very
disagreeable, and the day after our arrival we
had quite a snow storm. The health of the
regiment is remarkably good. Capt. Water
bury's men seem delighted with their new quar
ters, and are in excellent spirits. The little in
convenience of hard bread and salt pork, which
were the principal articles upon our bill of fare
for a few days after our arrival, has given - way
to fresh fish, oysters, sweet potatoes and corn
cakes, so you see the matter of " going fo; a
Bolger "is not such a desperate thing a ft er ill.
/us I write, the company has gone out foraging
and on a " tour of observation," and I expect
on their return this evening they will be loaded
down with the productions of the island. B.

CBIOACIO, March 22.
A special despatch from Cairo says the gun
boat Lexington, from the Tennessee river, has
arrived,, and reports that our forces are concen
trating into the country about Savannah, Ten
nessee, accomplishing nothing of importance,
besides the occasional capture of the scouts of
the enemy and. bringing into our lines promi
nent parties, charged with aiding the rebels.
Our forces have entire possession of the mein
phis and Charleston rellrowl, in the vicinity of
Savannah, Tennessee.
,The Ohio river is rapidly, raising at this
point, (Cairo.) Within the last twenty-four
hours it has risen a toot, and the streets are
covered to the depth of four feet in some
,places.
A balloon was sent to flag-otruier Foote, yes
terday, for the purpose of making a reconnois
ance of the Worki of the enemy.
A messenger who has jun returned from
Cape Girardeau, reports that the rumored at.
tack on that point
,by Jeff. Thompson is with
out foundation.
Steamers are continually coming with troops
from St. Louis. The mortars and gunboats
indulge in occasional shots, but so far without
any perceptible results. • . • -
All the gune but one in the upper battery,
on the Tennessee shore, have begs silenced, arid
one gun on the island dismounted. Shells
from the mortars are corotantly failing in the
rebel camps and batteries, and numbers of the
killed and wounded are being carried away on
litters. •
A large number of loaded wagons are leaving
the Tennessee shore, from which it is believed
.the pixie are making preparations , for an evao
nation of their works. The floating battery of
the rebels has been moved nearer the Island.
General Popo allowed a rebel gunboat to ap
proach within fifty yards of a masked battery
on Theaday, and then sunk her, killing fifteen
of those ou board.. He had previously allowed
five rebel steamers to pass on toward New
Madrid, and they are now between his batterries
unable, to escape. - •
Over trdozen rebel vessels, a floating battery
and - their battering-ram, are now above Gen
eral Pope's batteries, and will be sunk or cap
tured.
LATER.
Cexao, March 28
Only four shots were received from the rebel
batteries at Island No. 10 yesterday, while our
fleet fired about thirty shell. There awl:molar
one reports in circulation, that the rebels are
evacuating the !Blind and marching across the
Peninsula to Mrs. Merriweather's landing. It
is impoisible to ascertain the truth of these re
ports, birt the existing circumstances favor them.
