. We learn from one who susaks from the record that an average of twenty five soldiers per day have passed through that point during the last thirty days, and that as many as 300 to 400 of these soldiers have been seen at one time in transitu at that point. There are no railroads east or west from Natchez. It is seventy miles on the east to Brookhaven the nearest point on the New Orleans, Jackson and Great Northern Railroad--another neglected point — and twenty eight miles on the west to Trinity, on the Tensas river. There are good wagon roads all things considered, to both of these points from Natches, and stages, wagons, and other teams, ply there daily.

The firing ceased at 10 o'clock, and was not renewed until 8 the next morning, and was kept up steadily but slowly all day, the shots not exceeding eight to the hour. The Yankees war not only with women and children, but even with the dead. Several shells fell on Tuesday night in the graveyard of Trinity (Methodist Episcopal) Church, tearing up the graves and demolishing the tombstones of the sacred dead. They may have been chance shots. I think otherwise, and that they were but following the hyena-like instincts of their projectors. The yellow fever, I am sorry to say, is on the increase.
