Huron,) April 8, 1804. ) To the Editor of the frees Although our life is far from one of activi ty we feel that, in enduring a voluntary ex ile from the comforts of home, couiined with in the narrow limits of a gunboat for two years, with only a mail semi-occaaionally, we are entitled to some credit for patriotism.— The Huron has been in commission twenty seven months doing blockade duty in the South Atlantic Squadron, during which time kaan in,ve.. Ine(„n««a ll.ax n„» rvtlx.r vessel on the coast, having captured alone six btockaders,—some ot them very valuable —ran ashore aud sunk live, and assisted -in the capture of seven iu which she shares; making as good a record for two years as any one can show. We are now stationed at the mouth of the Altaraaha river, in Dobay Sound, about Af leen miles from Darien. We came here five months ago, aud since that time have captur ed one steamer, the Chatham, bound out with cotton, and two schoouers, the Dely Nassau and Sophia, bound in with assorted cargoes, very valuable. We have also run on shore aud destroyed the sell. Syivauus, bound in with a cargo o( liquors and' merchandise. Hardly a day passes but oue or more refu gees escape Irom the main laud aud arrive safely on board. For tbe last two mouths we have received the Savannah papers quite reg ularly, as most of the refugees are deserters Irom the Georgia regiments stationed near there and doing picket duty on the coast. When the sight of the old flag and the thought of Uncle Sam’s rations are an incen tive to leave the Confederate sham aud star vation, they can't resist. Only the other day the Chaplain, a Captain and l.ieut. in the nth Georgia, deserted and came oil' to the “Lojlo . ua,” a few mileB above us. The Captain's company of about eighty men were on picket. The Chaplain came down to the shore to get some oysters, but thought he could get better North. Tbe same night these officers were de serting to the Lodona, three of their men were dadling a long “dug out” down Dobay Sound to tbe Huron, and imagine their surprise to ; learn that their officers had beat them several hours. One private from the same regiment came on hoard the Huron with his wife and child, very destitute, aud instead of being ■hot or hung and his wife insulted as they were told they would be treated, a room was parted off’ with canvass for them : they messed in the steerage on invitation of the steerage officers, aud were sent North rejoicing, with good clothes aud seventy-live dollars of Uncle Sam's currency in their pockets. The Huron’s officers are — F. H. llaker, Lieut. Commander, comd’g; Win. Mills, Mas ter and F.xecutive officer; W. U. Baldwin, do.; Chas. Stewart, Paymaster;('has. P. Roebuck, Chief Engineer; S. B. Kenuey, Asst. Surgeon; Messrs. Conuor and Henderson, eusigus. Each officer will receive a very handsome share of prize money. If you w ith you can hear from us again, for we shall have another prize soon. Yours, Pokti.asd. An Exciting Scene at Niagara Falls. ' The Niagara Falls Gazette has the follow ing account ol an extraordinary ice jam in the Niagara river a few days since, and the uarrow escape of several persons: “A change from the prevailing easterly wind to the opposite quarter brought down immense quantities of the ice from the lake last Wednesday night. For the Aret time, we believe, iu the recollection of the ‘oldest in habitant,’ the ice formed a complete dam across the rapids between tbe bridge and the upper end of Goat Island. With the excep tion of a few rods in width near the main shore, the rocks below the ice dam were bare. It was safe walking where usually Hows an impetuous flood. And yet it was not quite so safe, as was proved Thursday morning, when several young meu wandered over the barren rocks, and visited a boat that hail been lodged there for several weeks. While en joying a walk, which we of this generation may never again hear of, the ice dam gave w ay and the vast volume of water, probably from five to ten feet, came rushing through. The dam soon disappeared again, and the boat that had remained Axed against the or dinary torrent was swept away and over tbe cataract. Of course there was a hurrying toward the island shore and the paper mill pier. Some escaped with a little wetting, while others barely escaped with their lives. A young man named Barlow was obliged to leap from one to another of the floating cakes of ice, aud fully appreciating the necessity of making land before being carried too near Ibe cataract, lost no time in leaping from the last cake, and swimming several rods to shore. Those who witnessed the scene describe it as exceedingly exciting.” Civilization vs. Ilurbnrisni. With a magnanimous enemy the venom of war ceases at dcaUi. No true soldier has re venge to glut on a dying foe. After that last decieeof Heaven has fallen,to Heaven is left . the rest; and infamous is the animosity which pursues au honorable opponent into the pre cincts of the grave. A soldier should be, a true soldier is, a Christian and a gentleman, it is re lated of that brave Confederate General who will always he famous iu history as Stonewall Jackson, that, on hearing a citizen of Win chester inveigh against the Union forces in outrageous terms, he rebuked the offender thus: “You aud I have no right to our hates ; personal rancor is the lowest expression of patriotism, aud a sin besides. We must leave these things to God.” Our own record may not be entirely clear from unsoldierly actions, aud for the Southern part, the mutilated bodies of the slain at Bull Kun, the unutterable atrocities of East Ten nessee, are still too fresh iu remembrance.— Every instance of dishonorable warfare should be uoted for stern reprobation. We have been informed that Commander Kowau, in temporary command of the South Atlantic Squadron, learns definitely from a refugee who was until the 1st of March employed as nurse in the hospital at Charleston, of the death of First Lieutenant C. II. Bradford, of the U.S. Marine Corps, who was captured at the at tack on Fort Sumter in September last. Pre vious to his death, which occurred during the latter part of September last, he met a former friend, a I)r. Mackie, through whose influ ence a burial was secured for him in the Mag nolia Cemetary, but subsequently, at the in stance of the citizens of t'harhston, he was disinterred and re-buried in the Potter's Field. The malignity of the act needs from no comment.—[Army aud Navy Journal. MISCELLANEOUS. IS open Day and E\ ruing, fora Thorough Business Education. Located ItsSo. Hanson Block, middle M„ No. 161.
