Barbarity of negro soldiers. --The Southern Observer makes the following extract from a letter written by a lady in Yazoo City to a friend in Alabama, relative to the recent visit of the Yankees to that city: We dreaded very much to see them come on account of the negroes. Most of the men were negroes. They as soldiers are the most ferocious and unrelenting of human beings. We dreaded their coming as of wild beasts. On last week they took an old man from near Satartia.--Col Harris — and beat him to death with a fence rail. They captured two of our scouts, and after shooting them seven times knocked them in the head and left them. Such barbarities as these are being daily committed.
