Nassau, N. P., Feb. 8.--The Southern schooner Louise arrived yesterday from Charleston, and reports that the expedition under Gen. Burnside had failed, some of the gunboats having been driven ashore during a gale at North-Carolina, and seven thousand of the troops and sailors taken prisoners. The Federalists are said to have suffered another defeat at Bowling Green, three thousand having been killed and five thousand taken prisoners. The small-pox has broken out in Washington, to the great alarm of the civil and military authorities. Army and people are being vaccinated, but vaccine matter is scarce. The Federalists have gained a victory over a large body of Confederates at Mill Hill, Kentucky. Nassau Guardian, February 8.
Making War in dead Earnest. Cairo, February 14, 1862. The following facts and correspondence show the exasperated nature of the war in these parts. Soon the cry will be: No quarter! Col. Kellogg, commanding at Cape Girardeau, telegraphed to Acting Brig.-Gen. Paine, at Cairo, thus: Yesterday (February eighth) several companies of our cavalry, with one company of Ross's infantry, scoured the country west, bringing in fifty prisoners. Our cavalry also encountered a large force of rebel cavalry, fifteen miles below Bloomfield. They succeeded in routing them, killing seven, wounding many, and taking twenty prisoners. We had two missing and one wounded. They found five bodies, known to be Union men, murdered. W. P. Kellogg, Colonel Commanding. Gen. E. A. Paine, Commanding, Cairo.
General Paine's Reply. Col. Kellogg, Commanding, Cape Girardeau: Hang one of the rebel cavalry for each Union man murdered; and, after this, two for each. Continue to scout, capture, and kill. E. A. Paine, Brigadier-General Commanding. Cairo, February 8. That's laconic and specific. Had this policy been pursued from the start, rebels would have been scarce in Missouri. I hope Gen. Hitchcock, Gen. Paine's successor, will act out the example of General, now Colonel Paine.--Cleveland Plaindealer.
