rty-five years of age. Three fourths of them are grey-headed, and many have long white beards, giving them a venerable appearance. Many have sent their sons to the field, and are now following them. One of the arts by which the Southern heart is fired is this: Soon after the battle of Murfreesboro, the rebel General Bragg caused to be printed and widely circulated in the army counterfeits of the Nashville Union, in which was conspicuously displayed Startling News! Four States Seceded from the Old Government! Missouri, Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky! This was followed by an editorial bewailing the loss of these States. Of course the whole affair was a forgery, but the illiterate soldiery of the South, a large proportion of whom cannot read at all, could not detect it. While Buckner was in Kentucky, bogus copies of the Louisville Journal were freely circulated by the rebels, filled with all kinds of matter adapted to inflame and encourage the rebels, and discourage the loyal.
l Grant's staff: The hero and veteran, who was citizen, captain, colonel, brigadier and major-general within a space of nine months, though a rigid disciplinarian, and a perfect Ironsides in the discharge of his official duties, could enjoy a good joke, and is always ready to perpetrate one when an opportunity presents. Indeed, among his acquaintances, he is as much renowned for his eccentric humor as he is for his skill and bravery as a commander. When Grant was a brigadier in South-east Missouri, he commanded an expedition against the rebels under Jeff. Thompson, in North-east Arkansas. The distance from the starting-point of the expedition to the supposed rendezvous of the rebels was about one hundred and ten miles, and the greater portion of the route lay through a howling wilderness. The imaginary suffering that our soldiers endured during the first two days of their march was enormous. It was impossible to steal or confiscate uncultivated real estate, and not a hog, or
Barbarity of the Yankees. treasury department C. S., Second Auditor's Office, July 28, 1863. gentlemen: I have this day received at my office a series of Yankee returns of our soldiers and citizens, who have been murdered by cold, starvation, and the most cruel and intentional neglect, in the Yankee prisons all over Yankeedom, numbering many thousands. A perusal of these lists is enough, and ought to fire the hearts of every confederate man, woman, and child with the deepest hatred, fury, and the desire of speedy vengeance. Any one desiring to inspect these lists, comprising the bravest and the best soldiers and citizens from all the confederate States, and of the latter especially, from Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee, can do so by calling at my office, at the corner of Ninth and Grace streets, from eight A. M. to four P. M. I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant, W. H. S. Taylor, Second Auditor, C. S. --Richmond, Enquirer, August 11.

strength they have laid low in the graves of a hundred battle-fields? Yes, they begin to feel that they were in the wrong; that there was some mistake somewhere; and for the first time they pray for peace. But this is only their first lesson. It is probable that our peace commissioners will have several other such to administer before the enemy shall be perfectly satisfied that there is no possible peace for him until, he withdraws every soldier from the soil of every State, including Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland, and Delaware, and yield up to their lawful owners every town and fort he holds all around our borders. Cincinnati, for example, would, we are assured, burn well. The Dispatch has the following: In the present instance the very enormity of the loss in prisoners attributed to the enemy excites incredulity, although no man doubts that he reporter stabted accurately the prevalent belief in Martinsburgh at the time. We feel as well assured that General Lee, if he
hrough our streets; the few words of command necessary were given by their own officers in that low tone of voice we hear used at funerals. Generals McPherson, Logan, and Forney, attended by their respective staffs, stood on the rebel breastworks overlooking the scene never before wit nessed on this continent. The rebel troops, as to clothing, presented that varied appearance so familiar in the North from seeing prisoners, and were from Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia, and Missouri; the arms were mostly muskets and rifles of superior excellence, and I saw but very few shot-guns; or indiscriminate weapons of any kind; it was plain that Pemberton had a splendidly-appointed army. Their flags were of a kind new to me, all I saw being cut in about the same dimensions as our regimental colors, all of the single color red, with a white cross in the centre. The ceremony of stacking arms occupied little over an hour upon that part of the lines, and when it was concluded, t

Walter S. Newhall: ob. December 18, Aet. 22. Captain Walter S. Newhall, of Philadelphia, Acting Adjutant-General upon the staff of General Gregg, was lately drowned in a tributary of the Rappahanock. He was one of the earliest volunteers in the war, leaving all to serve his country. First distinguished in the famous charge of Zagonyi at Springfield in Missouri, he was afterward engaged in the most active and dangerous service; and, always a hero, he never disappointed the fond faith of the hearts that loved him. He leaves two brothers in the service; and at the time of Lee's invasion last summer we believe that his parents had five or six sons on active military duty. The following lines, by a mother whose son had been in Captain Newhall's company, have a truly lyrical fervor. Not 'mid the cannon's roar, Not 'mid red fields of gore, When the fierce fight was o'er, His young life parted; But low beneath the wave, No hand outstretched to save, As in a hallowed grave Slept the tr
Oh! see ye not the sight sublime, Unequalled in all previous time, Presented in this Southern clime, The home of Chivalry? A warlike race of freemen stand With martial front and sword in hand, Defenders of their native land, The sons of Liberty, Unawed by numbers, they defy The tyrant North, nor will they fly, Resolved to conquer or to die, And win a glorious name. Sprung from renowned heroic sires, Inflamed with patriotic fires, Their bosoms burn with fierce desires, The thirst for victory. 'Tis not the love of bloody strife-- The horrid sacrifice of life; But thoughts of mother, sister, wife, That stir their manly hearts. A sense of honor bids them go To meet a hireling, ruthless foe, And deal in wrath the deadly blow, Which vengeance loud demands In Freedom's sacred cause they fight, For Independence, Justice, Right, And to resist a desperate might. And by Manassas' glorious name, And by Missouri's fields of fame, We hear them swear, with one acclaim, We'll triumph or we'll die.
