itants of these cities and vicinity, offered their professional advice and assistance, free of charge, to aid such persons in recovering compensation for the damages inflicted upon them by riotors. --Corinth, Miss., was occupied by the advance of the National forces under the command of General Hurlbut. General Richardson, the notorious guerrilla, returned to his former field of operations in the neighborhood of Hickory, Wythe, Galloway's Station and Belmont, in the counties of Tipton, Shelby, and Fayette, Tenn. Richardson had a force of about two hundred men. These were, like himself, destitute of all principle save that of self-interest. Richardson was aided by the Rev. Captain Burrow and Captain Murray. One thing very remarkable was, that each of these men once laid claim to sanctimoniousness. Richardson was once a great exhorter among the Methodist friends in Memphis. Burrow was a minister of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, while Murray was a very sanctimonious elder o

ught this incidental and inadvertent, but was now well satisfied that, with the cause of abolition, he [Mr. Garrison] is determined to carry forward and propagate and enforce his peculiar theology . . . Slavery is not merely to be abolished, but nearly everything else. With such associates he could not act, any more than with infidels, like Fanny Wright A remarkable woman, born in Scotland Sept. 6, 1795; died (Mme. Darusmont) in Cincinnati Dec. 14, 1852. Her attempted community in Shelby Co., Tenn., in 1825, was a notable early anti-slavery enterprise. She was an eloquent public lecturer, and as such often mobbed for her political and religious doctrines (Lib. 8.173), a socialistic co-worker with Robert Owen, and a co-editor with Robert Dale Owen of the N. Y. Free Inquirer (see Noyes's American Socialisms, chap. 7; Life of Charles Follen, p. 471; and biographies by John Windt and Amos Gilbert). and Abner Kneeland, An orthodox clergyman of Massachusetts, who became a rational
y skill and courage richly earned the honor bestowed upon him by the President of the Confederacy. From the beginning of his career up to the battle of Chickamauga he had eight horses killed under him. At Vining Station, July 4, 1864, his leg was taken off by an exploding shell, and he was permanently disabled for military duty. After the war he returned to Mississippi and engaged in farming until 1872. The next year he opened a mercantile house in Memphis, Tenn. In 1878 the people of Shelby county elected him clerk of the criminal court by 6,000 majority. He has served officially as major-general, commanding the Tennessee division of United Confederate Veterans, in all the affairs of which he takes a lively interest. Brigadier-General John C.

cy. She was also truly a mother in Israel, in the highest Christian sense. Her life had been closely connected with that of many leading actors in the late great Civil War, in which she, too, took, in her quiet way, an influential part. She passed away, June 28th, at Idlewild, one of the suburbs of Memphis, nearly eighty-nine years of age. She was born on the River Yadkin, in Wilkes County, N. C., August 27th, 1805, and at the time of her death was doubtless the oldest person in Shelby County. Her mother's maiden name was Charity King. Her father, Chapman Gordon, served in the Revolutionary War, under Generals Marion and Sumter. She came of a long-lived race of people. Her mother lived to be ninety-three years of age, and her brother, Rev. Hezekiah Herndon Gordon, who was the father of Gen. John B. Gordon, now Senator from Georgia, lived to the age of ninety-two years. Sallie Chapman Gordon was married to Dr. John S. Law, near Eatonton, Ga., on the 28th of June, 1825.
edgment of the enemy. The Columbus (Ky.) special correspondent of the Memphis Appeal, writing under date of Nov. 10, furnishes that paper with a very interesting account of the Belmont fight, from which we extract the following: The loss of the enemy is estimated at 298 actually counted and buried on the field, 100 carried on the boat bearing the flag of truce, and 150 killed on the boats as they were embarking, making a total of killed on their side of 548. Esquire Robinson, of Shelby county, of company A, 2d regiment, was captured, and was on the boat at the time our troops were pouring a galling fire into them, and he estimates the number of killed on the boats at over 200, He was returned to Columbus to-day. There can be no doubt that the troops brought against us on the 7th were the very best in the Lincoln service, as their prisoners here acknowledge. A steamer, bearing a flag of truce, came to Columbus to-day, bringing Mrs. Dougherty and other ladies, who came

Virginians in the battle of Shiloh, New Hope, Va, May 28, 1862. To the Editors of the Dispatch: In a recent issue of your paper I notice the names of several Virginians mentioned as having participated in the great battle of Shiloh. I wish to add another. I refer to Gustavus Credson. He is a native of Albemarle county, but removed several years ago with his parents to Shelby county, Tennessee, where he has been since living. He is not yet eighteen years of age and joined the army soon after the commencement of hostilities; thus furnishing another of the numberless illustrations of the unyielding determination of the Southern people of all classes to drive back the invaders or perish in the attempt.
