cognizance some days ago in the Confederate Court at this place, upon a charge of counterfeiting; John Baxter, of this city, being his security. He was assisted in this infamous raid by other tory residents of Scott County, among whom was Riley Cecil, another individual who was released by Major Fulkerson, at Jamestown, last summer, upon making the strongest promises of good behavior toward the Confederate States. Those composing the little patriotic band, were R. Bird, Speed Faris, Samuel Freeman, J. W. Smith, Clint. Roe, Ples. Jones, Joe Cain, S. C. Cain, Wm. Ellison, Frank and Abel Bryant, G. W. Lyttle, S. Stanfield, Jeremiah Meadors, R. and J. Pemberton, and some others, making between twenty and thirty in number.--Frankfort Commonwealth (Ky.), Dec. 9.

December 3. Major Bowen's Cavalry were attacked at Salem, Dent Co., Mo., this morning at four o'clock, by three hundred rebels under command of Colonels Freeman and Turner. They charged upon a house in which some of the Federal soldiers were sleeping, killing and wounding fifteen, shooting them through the windows and as they emerged from the house. Major Bowen, whose Headquarters were at the court house, one hundred yards distant, rushed out and rallied his men, when a street fight took place. The Federals charged upon the rebels, drove them from the streets, and followed them some distance out of town. They were perfectly cleaned out and fled. Many of the rebels were killed and wounded, but the number was not ascertained. Major Bowen had possession of the town, and sent to Rolla, Mo., for a surgeon and a reinforcement of fifty men. Capt. Dodd, of the rebel force, was badly wounded and taken prisoner. He said Turner had one hundred and thirty men under his command. Amon
enty other gentlemen stood near enough to hear anything that might have been said. They all declare that not a syllable to which the Prince could take exception was uttered by any human being so far as they could hear. The whole story was generated by the foul imagination of the Times' correspondent. Fourthly. He said that the crowd at the Governor's House (or around it) was so disorderly, that the Prince was compelled to escape by a back entrance. Governor Letcher, Mayor Mayo, Capt, Samuel Freeman, a number of gentlemen who were in the house, and at least two hundred persons outside, know that this was a falsehood. We ourselves stood by the carriage and saw the Prince enter it with Mr. Mayo and the Duke of Newcastle. It was drawn up at the front door. Gov. Letcher stood at the door the Prince descended the steps with Mr. Mayo, and got into the carriage. There was no back way by which he could have escaped into the street, if he had desired it, as anybody can see who will look
Bad walkway. --The northern walkway of Bank street, between 9th and 11th streets, is nearly all the time unfit for use by the ladies, in consequence of its wet and muddy condition, caused by drainage from the entire southern front of the Capitol Square. Any considerable fall of water is liable to expose the walkway in question to overflow, and the evil cannot be remedied unless underground drainage is resorted to. No doubt the energetic Superintendent of the Square, Capt. Sam. Freeman, with his usual fertility of invention, will soon discover an avenue for the escape of the above objectionable "rush of many waters" --objectionable to everybody, and to the ladies particularly.
Planting trees. --Operatives from the State penitential institute, near this city, were engaged yesterday, under the direction of Capt. Samuel Freeman, in setting out shade trees on the Capitol Square.
Rude Boys. --We are informed, by parties who have been witness to the conduct spoken of, that the sentinel posted on the Capitol Square to guard the buildings and Monument, and Capt. Samuel Freeman, the Superintendent, are besieged nearly every Sunday by a parcel of blackguard, rude, and impertinent urchins, who pelt the officials named with all sorts of opprobrious epithets, and generally conduct themselves in the most unseemly manner. A number of policemen will be detailed to keep an eye on the Square next Sunday.
Capt. Samuel Freeman, who was murdered white a prisoner in the hands of the Yankees during the recent fight at Franklin, Tenn., was a native of that State and a lawyer by profession.--He had distinguished himself for bravery. He was shot in the face by his captors as our troops were approaching them as a charge.
