We make an extract: Mrs.--was grossly insulted. Mrs. D. was cursed blue; blue; but you must send her folks (down there) word — she is still alive. Mr. Taylor, her uncle, has not a second change, nor any of his family. I do not think you have any idea how bad the Yankees are. I thought I knew, but I did not know the half. They took old Mrs.--'s teeth, all her spoons and knives, and destroyed all provisions and corn that they could not use. Two army corps were here, with Gens. Hurlburt, McPherson, and Leggett. Mother has been sick ever since the Yankees left. How glad I am that I did not get sick. No one need want to be with the Yankees, even for a few days.

The new draft, which commenced in the Yankee States yesterday, will result as all the others have. The $300 commutation clause is still in force, and the green backs will pour in. The disastrous defeat of Gillmore in Florida, the rout of Grierson and Smith in Mississippi, the disgraceful failure of Sherman's advance on Mobile, the repulse of the last "on to Richmond," and the general gloom thrown over the Yankee prospects by these occurrences, will not encourage going into the ranks. The commutation might be advanced to $600, and it would be cheerfully paid. With our strengthened armies in the field, let our people take courage and do all in their power to sustain them in comfort. The stage is cleared. The curtain is slowly rising on the spring campaign.

If successful, Sherman would have been in a condition to advance upon Demopolis and Selma, or Mobile; and these important pois force, which was already greatly exhausted by the continual skirmishing with Sherman's column. Forrest was, therefore, left alone with his 2,400 men to perferged from their fortifications. As soon as the news of this disaster reached Sherman he began his retrograde movement towards the Mississippi. Lee following him ud them down again. To increase this feeling of mortification and disgust, Sherman's conscience was burdened with a load of infamy which, even upon a Yankee Gene and hospitality from the Southern people, during his residence in Louisiana. Sherman has, by the license extended to his brutal hirelings, in their march through M
