GARRISONED. On Wednesday last, the cars brought to this
place Co. H. 8th U. S. Infantry, and it is under¬ stood that the troops will remain for a seaßon. Some supp030 tlut the penning election bea ru- ducod the authorities to garrison our town again, but wo have no doubt that Radio&l lying end mis¬ representation about the former election brought about, this result. -_-«,-
FROH THE 8AIIDT7ICH IBLA5DS. Wo havà reoeived thc fellow ing noto from a for-
mef'citizen of this District, r.ho is now a résidant of Lavai, one of the Sandwich Islands : .."Please send me a oopy of your poper for a
twelvemonth, for payment of which I have on- olcs^a.quarter eagle, $2.50.' Myself and fanjiiy are evor anxious to get news from the old Distrfc!, our ouce .loved homo, and from the dear old Stele of South. Carolina. We sympathize keenly with hsr struggles and troubles.
"These islands aro now ia a state of political disquiet. There is an increasing tendency to¬ wards annexation to tho Am arican Union. How- aver, there- is a large party, even of foreigners, who hope to see maintained hero an independent Pacific- sovereignty. I hope so, for ono ; until I BM greater improvement in your Union."
DEATH OÏ COL« S. H. 2VERB. The Spartauburg Spartan, of the 28th ultimo,
contained the fol ï o v.- ¡ag editorial notice of the death of Col. S. N. Evjns, ihe father of our towns¬ man, Dr. T. A. Evins : "It is our painful duty to record the death of Col. Samuel N. Evins, an aged and honored citizen of Spartanburg, who de¬ parted this life on Sunday last, at his resldenoc, of paralysis, and in thc icveaty-first year of his age. CoL Evins enjoyed in an eminent degree, the re¬ spect and confidence of tho people ; having serifed them faithfully for many years ia tho highest and moat trusty offices within their gift. The integri¬ ty-of his character in all the relations of life, the.
. purity of his motives, and the fidelity and devotion to. the best interests of his constituants, and with a singleness of heart in the observance of 11.9 par¬ amount obligations of a christi&u, gave to him a position of eminence in this community, seldcm
» attained by others. His death has created a void ia.our midst which time alune eui fill." -Q>-.-
ZLORAL TRIBUTE IO THE HOBIE DEAD. In pursuance of the notico given through these
columns last neck, tho ladies of this vicinity as¬ sembled in the Baptist church on Saturday after¬ noon last, for ihe purpose of offering their tribute of flower« and evergreens at the shrino of the gal¬ lant heroes «hose liv«3 were sacrificed in the Bor¬ rico of their country, and whoas remains- now rest beneath the sod in onr quiet churchyards. The attendance of spectators was not large, owing to tho insufficient notice, we presume, but there was » solemn feeling pervading the assemblage, attest¬ ing, the deep interest felt in tho occasion, and chowing that the defenders of cur causo were uone ihe leas respected nor their memories forgotten because they , utrovo in Tain. Tho business places were generally closed, wc beîiovo, during the pro¬ gress of the decoration. The oxcrois&c wero opened by the Rev. Wallace H. Stratton, of the Presby¬ terian church, reading the DÛ!h Psalm, which was .followed by an earnest and impressive prayer from Rev. S. WiBB3B, of the Methodist church. It wus iben announced by Rev. W. D. Bkvxbxy that the ladies would proceed to the graveyard for tho pur¬ pose of decorating the paves, and that when this sad duty had been performed in tho Baptist ceme¬ tery, they would proceed to the Presbyterian church for the observance of similar ceremonies, whoa the exercises would be ooucluded. When tho benediction had been prouóuncod, the crowd quietly proceeded to the grr»vc3, and thc inohu- ohcly duty was discharged without confusion and in the most orderly, decorous manner. Want of space precludes any particular descrip¬
tion of the ceremonies. Taste and elegance were added io simplicity, and flowers wero intertwined With evergreens and made to appear more beauti¬ ful by the handiwork of woman.
It wu fitting that the fair hands of woman should be engaged in this holy work ; tho pale sleepers .beneath had given their all in defence of home, whero mother, sister, wife or friend was the chief adornment and new, when tho din of battle had ceased, and surviving comrades had "hung up their bruised arms" as monuments of their fidelity and glory, tbs resting places of the heroic dead were risked with revorenco, and rcapect shown loy the same noble women whose cheery werdï had sustained both living and dead ia tho faithful discharge of duty, lt was a noblo otming fi oin gentle, patient weman to the memory of ia .len heroes I

STANTON,
Secretary of War. It will be observed that the modern Carnot docs
sot resign the outee, nor acknowledge that he is out of it, but signing bia name as "Seorctary of War," says that he has "relinquished the charge of the War Department," and has "left tho same, «nd the books, archives, papers and property," in his oustody as Secretary of War, in caro of ano¬ ther person. He does not acknowledge the right of the President to appoint his succcesor, but the Senate-haas ¡noe confirmed the nomination of Gen- Schofield, and at last Edwin M. Stanton is forced to retire from a position often disgraced by his villainius and prostituted by him from party motives. The following is Secretary Stanton's letter to
