wanted the privilege of shooting an Abolitionist.

An Abolitionist could not have looked upon this body of
colored recruits for the Southern army without strongly sus-
pecting that his intense sympathy for the " poor slave " was
not appreciated, that it was wasted on an ungrateful subject.

The arms of these colored warriors were rather mysteri-

to drive into the thick skulls of the Abolitionists the truth,
to which they are wilfully blind, that their interference in
behalf of Southern slaves is neither appreciated nor desired ;
or that those shovels were intended to dig trenches for the
interment of their carcasses? It may be that the shovels are
to be used in digging ditches, throwing up breastworks, or the
construction of masked batteries, those abominations to every
abolition Paul Pry who is so unlucky as to stumble upon
them. вАФ Memphis Avalanche, Sept. 3.
