On Christmas day Ben. Harris headed a bloody gang of some twenty Yankees belonging to the 4tht and, five miles above Guntersville, tending to their horses, when Harris and his delectable party came upon them.

Precisely so; and, as such, stands upon the Democratic ticket a worthy representative of that glorious phalanx which stood up in the Congress of the United States to denounce, in the face of raving madness, a war which has devastated the c,--at the bidding of a fanatical Abolition, hundreds of thousands of our sons and brothers. George H. Pendleton, it is true, protested against the destructive passions of fanaticism, standing in his place in Congress beside Vallandigham and Harris.
