[JULY 13, 1861.



" I was amused to observe that most of these works had galleries in the rear, generally in connection with the magazine passages, which the constructors called 'rat-holes,' and which are intended as shelter to the men at the guns, in ease of shells falling inside the battery. They may prove to have a very different result, and are certainly not so desirable in a military point of view as good traverses. A rush for the 'rat-hole' will not be very dignified or improving to the morale every time a bomb hurtles over them ; and assuredly the damage to the magazines will be enormous if the fire from Pickens is accurate and well sustained. "—DR. RUSSELL's Letter from Pensacola to the London Times.


OFFICER LINCOLN. "I guess I've got you now, JEFF."

JEFF DAVIS. " Guess you have—well now, let us Compromise."

Lloyd's Military Map and Gazetteer
of the Southern States of
North America,


And the Population and Sketch of every Town, Village, River, and Fort,
Drawn from actual Surveys, showing every foot of the Southern Country from Delaware to the banks of the Rio del Norte, Mexico. EVERY COUNTY AND COUNTY SEAT, TOWN, VILLAGE, FORT, NAVY-YARD, RIVER, AND TOWNS AND LANDINGS ON THE RIVERS, LAKE, SWAMP, AND MOUNTAIN is marked down. EVERY RAILROAD, completed up to 26th day of June, 1861, and all those projected, are exhibited on this Map; every Station, and THE DISTANCE FROM station to station, is ,marked distinctly. Every Inlet, Creek, and place along 2500 miles of sea coast is marked down from official information furnished by the U. S. Superintendent of the Coast Survey to the last Congress. More than 3000 towns on the Mississippi, Red, Arkansas, and Ohio Rivers, are laid down on this map. All the information in the Departments at Washington City, in regard to the late Coast Surveys, were used in perfecting this Map. The Forts and Arsenals are all laid down on Lloyd's Map correctly, from official documents in the War Department.

A VALUABLE FEATURE. On the back of the sheet on which Lloyd's Map is printed, is a sketch of every Town, City, River, and Fort, also a historical Sketch, and the population of each place, from the last census, and other reliable information of the latest date. This information will be of great value to every one at the present time, and is alone worth three times the price of the Map. The amount of information given on the back is equal to an octavo volume of 300 pages—information that can not be had elsewhere for $10.

This Map is acknowledged by Civil Engineers to be the best drawn and most accurate of any map ever offered to the public before. The surveys for this map were made by Civil Engineers of the Southern States; and the information of the Railroads, Stations, and Distances were furnished by Southern Railroad men themselves, and can be relied on as correct. In fact, this is the only correct Map of the Southern Country ever drawn. The people of the Northern States can see correctly, at a glance, the preponderance of the Southern Country over the Northern and Western States, and will more fully comprehend the reason of the Southern States uniting, by glancing westward at the rich plains of Mexico, which are exhibited on this map.

The public will please understand that this map was not rushed out for the purpose of supplying the people with an imperfect map during the present excitement, but has been under way for more than one year, and is now ready for the public, after a long and tedious work in surveying, drawing, and engraving, and is believed to be the only reliable and full Map of the whole Southern country ever issued. It shows from Philadelphia to the middle of Mexico.

Can be sent by mail any where in America. Agents can sell 50 copies per day. Send money for sample Map and Private Circular. No Postage Stamps taken. The postage on the Sheet Edition is only one cent per copy to any part of the country. 3 copies for $1.

The Mounted Edition will have to be sent by Express. Cloth Pocket Edition, at $1. Mounted Edition, at $2.50. Terms, CASH.

Registered letters only are at our risk.
