Rebellion Record: a Diary of American Events: Poetry and Incidents., Volume 7. (ed. Frank Moore), Yankee Villainy and Flnnkeyism. (search)
Yankee Villainy and Flnnkeyism. In the late raid to Rocky Mount, N. C., says the Raleigh State Journal, the Yankees entered the dwelling of ex-Gov. Clark, and took from his wife the wedding present of jewelry her husband had given her, and which of course she highly prized. One of the men remarked he thought it hard; but, said he, though our officers profess otherwise, in stealing these things, we are strictly under orders--we must obey. We learn from the Philadelphia Inquirer, the most sycophantic of all Lincoln's lick-spittles, that the betrothal ring ordered by ex-Governor Sprague for his intended bride, Miss Kate Chase, is a diamond solitaire, set in enamel and not chased. It is described as a beautiful and tasteful ornament, worthy of the beautiful young lady who is the happy possessor of the token. The price of the ring was four thousand dollars.--Savannah News, August 14.
August 14. --General Grant don't please the rebels in Mississippi any better than he pleases their allies up this way. When sugar, cotton, or molasses is discovered within his lines, he don't let the rebel owners sell it to the Government on the easily manufactured assurance that they are loyal, but takes it all away and gives them receipts to be paid at the end of the war, on proof of the loyalty of the holder.--Indianapolis Journal.
