The following letter la directed on the envelope to "Robert Chisholra, Esq. , Beaufort, South Carolina:" ? CRlSLSSHW, August 31, 1801. Rorbrt Chwholm, Esq. : 1'sak Sir ? I received yours of the 20th Inst., and feel much gratified and delighted at the sterling evidence of yoi.r patriotism, nnd hope there is many more like you. With such citizens the country Ir safe. I consulted with Mr. K. L. Kerrutcn, chiff.'iiian of the committe who have charge of the matter of clothing and black) tR for o ir brave troops in Virginia. His advice i? that you i? nl ! your wool to Messrs. Gibba& Co., of Columbia, who have a contract w ith the government to furnish an indefinite quantity of wool. en goods for the army , at a very good price. They are working their miil night and day , but find difficulty in obtaining a sufficiency >f wool. They are yetting It away firm Toxas. By selling It to them you w ill be getting a food price for it, and obtain soma money, which you will want, as there will bene chance of selling your cotton or rice rerhane you will have to bu-n your cotton, as the en*my will endeavor to get it to sell to the English u> k.*ep them quiet. It seems to he one of th-.'lr infe. t a. plana, and If thev succeed In effcctirg a landing they will not be Blow in carrying It out. I hope they will find nothing but tho ashes. We must be willing to burn and devastate our own land, rather than they shall benefit one iota by their conquest. 1 hope, tliough. we will lie able to keep them out (they are a cowardly set) although we arc weak; but by bravery and perseve rence we can do it. Every effort ought to be made t., for tify tfi* Inlets; but we have so many, 1 fear some place may be weak , and an opening left. Our Governor has been much to blame for Ills supinetiegs in thia matter. The great object of our association is to urge and assist the authorities In putting tho const in a state of defeuce. The Governor seems to think and act as 11 the tak ug of Fort Mimtcr was enough glorv for one administration, and retired to Columbia, where be is of no use, instead of be ing duwn here, and visiting the works on the coast, and giving all the personal aid and enoouragemeut thai his presence would inspire. However, things are getting bet ter u this department, and 1 am in hopes, when the yan k or rnme, we will he ready for them. The otter matter of nothing lor our soldiers is getting on siovly. Hi ability of the county to f urnish woollen goods is ver?' limited, and I foar there '.till bo much suturing* W? are doirg all we can U' the city. Yon, gentlemen, in the country, must help. I know ; ou will. If you will send the blankets aud shirts you have to spare lo E. L. Kerri sen, he will put tliem to the pur | wee you intend.

The leittr above alluded to you have certainly re eeived, and time sutlic.enl has elapsed for you to have decided whether or not you will interchange views with uio through the medium ofthe mails.

But 1 agree with tho immortal Campbell when lie pays thero is "magic in a name." jly name, far from injuring me in i.uropv, was decidudly an advantage, from its sin gularity. We do not bear the iimne of our ancestors, and it was decided more than ten years ago to change ttie name. 1-dphin was the name seiccV d by my eldest bi oili er, who died (juite young in Louisiana. After his de.ttli from shoot indifference it has boon neglected. 1 have always intended attending to it, and i?meml>er welt, when qiite a hoy, that my father told me he woulu change the name for me. This, as yo^ kne.i , Is e?siiy di ne ihroub'h the mo<iium of friends in the sute Legisla lure, i contemplate having Dolphin ad 'od to the <Tigioat name, the original T. being writteu as an initial.
