Brutality. --Evidences of the brutal proceedings of the Yankees in Culpeper county accumulate daily. The latest case reported is that of Miss Ella Slaughter, an accomplished young lady, who was grossly insulted by a soldier, when she drew a pistol and commanded him to leave her presence. The ruffian immediately took his departure, but soon afterward returned with an officer and a file of men, who arrested Miss S. and imprisoned her in the county jail, where she remained at last accounts subjected to the fare and treatment of the most hardened criminal. The high- handed deeds of Butler in New Orleans will hardly bear comparison with the atrocities of Pope and his men in Northern Virginia.
