hope, if necessary, the extremest measures will be resorted to in order to suppress all treason and secure to the people immunities from civil war in their midst.
The Knoxville Register of the 7th instant, says:
Forty-eight tories were sent off yesterday morning to Tuscaloosa, Ala., to be held there till the end of the war. These are part of the disaffected East Tennesseeans, who have been arrested in the last few weeks by the military authorities.
Among these prisoners was Samuel Pickens, State Senator from Greene, Cocke, Sevier, and Blount counties.
Capt. Monsarrat, with a portion of Gen. Carroll's brigade, recently detailed against the tory force of Cocke county, returned last night, on the train from above, bringing 31 prisoners. Among them, we learn, several of the bridge-burners.
They wee escorted to jail, and lodged there to await a trial.
Later from Columbus — our gun-boats after the Federals--another capture, &c.
