pleasure in announcing to the troops un-
der his conizatud the result of'& gallant
expedition against the enemy's detatchad
posts, undertaken on the 19th instant by-
Capt. J. J. Dickison, 2d Fla. Cavalry.
Crossing the St. Johns river in small
boats with a force of 54 men, Capt. Dick-
ison surprised and captured the enemy's
de:atchments at Welaka, and Fart Gales,
taking in all 56, prisoners including 2
commissioned officers, with 8 horses and
the arms and equipment of the entire
force, Capt. D. 6nd his brave men then re-
- turned safely to their -camp, bringing in
the whole of. their captures, after an ab-
sence of 44 hours; during which they
raveledd 85 miles and effected the results
detailed, without the loss of a man. %
. Such.an exploit attests more emphati.
ally the s ,ld-ry qualities of the galfhdht
men and skillfull leader who achieved it
than any commendations it would be pos.
sible to give them. The Major Oen'l.
Comd'g feels, however, that his thanks
are due to them, and while thus publicly
tendering the tribute so justly due, in'
dulges tlie confident hope that every.officer
and soldier in his district will emulate
the patriotic endurance and darling dis
played by Capt. Dickison's command.

T'h-& last Legislature, saw fit, in

frestriet the planting of cotton to one

we fire plecaed to k.eir', from different
quarters, thnt a Iadtgc'nuhiBcr "of plai-
ters, have planted less, and are bond-
ing tities of provisions. The invasion of
the State which wa,; anticipated .by us
as far baok as. the lltfh-of April 1863"
;as tte following arlvl C.,- fro u- r files,
shows,'has learnt us a useful lesson,
and perhaps it may prove a very bene-
ficial one.: If peace comes, there is no

danger thai- we.will have too many
provisions on hand.
We said then:.
We cannot W too zealous in-urging
upon bur fellow citizens the important
aud necessity bf organization; for it is
known that ifa nccessity arises'denmian
ding ourservices, unless there is or-
ganization, tliat the state of confusion
would be too great to result in good to
us. It is true that our enemies have

lef Jacksonville, it is supposed, to be
used against the cities of our pride on
the Carolina and Georga coast. 'We
are sanguine .in the belief that their
efforts to capture those cities, will
prpve an ignominious failure. Such
troops and leaders as we have there,
are not apt to fail. If the enemy

points, they may attempt, to bring ruin

succeed, then it will be an easy .matter

Oua r rospective-Futurei
There. is now no doubt about our
being able to get a supply of printing
paper, and if we succeed in getting
a printer detailed,'wo hope to make
our columns more interesting than
they have ,ever been, since the war.
At present, we have not a sufficient
force in thQ office, and there is no one
connected, either directly or indirect-
ly with the paper, Who would be liable
to military duty were it suspended
to-morrow. Having made a strong
appeal for a printer from the army
who has, heretofore been connected
with the office, we hope to succeed,
which we ought to do; or really, our
patronage would justify it.-- in doubling
the present size of' our sheet. The
people, both in and ou1 oof the army,

have sustained us handsoraelv, for
'\h;,Ilhwe feel the deepest sense of grat-
itude, and the greatest satisfaction.
IN-e believe that the "Cotton StateW'
will be a permanent citizen of Florida,
long after those who brought it into
existence and baptised it, shall have
passed into the realities of,- we hope,
"a'better world," where the beauties
of the eternal Edeu .fade not, and joys
everlasting fill tlie soul with inexpress-
ible raptures.

Lincoln has been an instrument in
the hands of the devil, to bring dis-
tress upon millions of ,e:ip,1e. and we
'believe that he has been given- up to
"stiffness of neck and hardness of
heart," and that his doom is sealed.
"Nobody hurt" was his exulting ex-
clamation for a long-time after precious
blood had been spilt, and' precious
zouls had been hurried into eternity by
his villainly; but somebody has becu
hurt. NWe in the South have "..
hurt; our young men-,our old
men fathers and brothers, have fal-
leu--tur country is draped in mourn-
ing from the Potomac to he IRio-
grande, on account ofthe power of an
abolition man tt fithe Northern peo-
ple will be ashamed of and curse, after
God, through the instrumentality of
Southern soldiers, convinces them ful-
ly that somebody is hurt, North as well
as South of the blood consecrated Po-
tomac Lincoln will yet hang himself,
and his aiders and abetters will stand
a ghast at their folly. "4 Vengeance. i
mine saith the Lord."

Our- men, to elude the eli.-., took to a
swamp near by, where they attel-.1tL.l
to conceal themselves; but two of them
were ^"oojt found and captured by the,
