s written a week ago, before any action had been taken by the authorities. Its publication was unavoidably delayed until there had already appeared an order to Gen. Holmes directing him to require the surrender of the murderer McNeil, or in the event of refusal, to execute ten of the first officers of the enemy that should fall ino be dead, and described by the Abolition papers as a spy. It would have been but even-handed justice to have meted out the exact measure with which he measured Gen Holmes should have been ordered to execute ten Yankee officers for every man murdered by McNeil. In the second place, there should have been no contingency in the queve given this sage direction had she been sure that every one who might wish to avail himself of her culinary skill had a hare ready caught for the experiment. Gen. Holmes like the readers of Mrs. Glass's book, is to "catch his hare." In other words, he is to capture his officers before he can shoot them. How if he should never c

Gen Price, too, since he has been relieved of the Incubus of Gen Holmes, is beginning to loom up, and will again signalize himself as the deliverer of Arkansas and Missouri. His victory over Steele seems to have been a complete one, and we doubt whether Steele will be permitted to remain long in Little Rock, even if he should get there.--Now that the work has commenced, and Gen. Price has his face once more set towards the North, we may rest assured he will not remain idle. His army will gather strength as he moves through the country, and we predict that th
