The following editorial appeared in the “The American Antiqu arian Society.”

On entering town yesterday morning, we were not a little surprised to observe such a large number of beautiful ladies. Perhaps some allowance may be made for soldier boys who have been compaigning through the pine woods of Alabama for a couple of months, but we think we can safely swear that for pretty girls, Greenville stands unrivalled. If Gen. Smith could only be persuaded that the interests of the services demanded a delay at Greenville for a week or fortnight we are sure that some of these ladies would entertain a different opinion of the Yankee soldiers than they now do. Col. Spurling has received a number of notes from the citizens thanking him for the gentlemanly manner with which the soldiers have conducted themselves. It seems to have been a general belief that with the entry of the Union army a series of outrages too horrible to mention would begin. We observe the happy disappointment on every side. But we must be "marching along." We promise ourselves another visit to Greenville, when the white wings of peace shall cover the land.

In the meantime, may this goodly town enjoy its former prosperity, and the "busy hum of industry" find again its channel in this community. The dead must bury its d ead. This beautiful town like too many others, still only regret the cruel destiny which like an avenging Nemesis drove it into the whirlpool of Secession.

With communication again established by rail and by river, between Mobile and Montgomery, we shall congratulate the community upon an opening dawn of prosperity such as has not been witnessed for years, past. Brush the dust from your coffee cups and bring out the sugar bowl. This style of crockery is again in fashion, for the precious kernels are coming - Again, goodbye, city of pretty girls and spacious hospitals. 'Tis a lucky shot that disables a soldier boy, temporarily in this vicinity.
