show Victors make when battle's past. Listen! Hear the deepening roar Shaking earth, and air, and sky, From the distant river shore-- How its echoes thunder by! Does an earthquake stalk abroad O'er Missouri's fated soil, Making one vast grave her sod While her rivers seethe and boil? Listen! No! It is the boom Of the cannon's fearful notes, While the wreaths of battle bloom All around their bellowing throats! Listen! No! It cannot be! Price is still in full retreat, And our troops in Tennessee Rebel arms shall ne'er defeat! Listen! Still the ceaseless roar Peals along the quivering air, From the city on the shore News of victory it must bear! Listen! Hear the loud hurrahs In the quiet village streets While the distant thunder jars-- Echo still with echo meets. Listen! Loudly peal the bells! Listen! Guns are thundering here! Every thing of victory tells, Hearts of millions yearn to hear. Price is taken, now, at last! Donelson has fallen low! God be praised! the die is cast
iors wanted.--The confederate States government has very recently passed an act legalizing and recommending the organization of Partisan Rangers, and as that character of warfare is doing good service for the country, and the necessity for them is very great at this time, I have, in connection with a number of other gentleman, determined to organize a corps of brave spirits who will go out and harass the enemy, and drive him from our soil. The Northman has invaded the sacred soil of old Tennessee, and that portion of the country which they have invested is being desolated and destroyed. They insult our women and maltreat our old men — they burn our homes and lay waste our fields — they desecrate the graves of our friends who have gone.to that bourne from whence no traveller returns — they have set aside the laws of God and man, and it is now high time that we who have not taken part in this struggle should gather ourselves to our tents, and resist these Thugs of the North to the d<
When Commander Davis took possession of Fort Pillow after its evacuation by the rebel garrison, the following letter was found lying on a table in the officers' quarters: Fort Pillow Tenn. To the first Yankee who reads this: I present this table not as a manifestation of friendship, yet I entertain no personal animosity to him, but because I can't transport it. After six weeks bombardment, without doing us any harm whatever, I know you will exult over the occupation of this place, but our evacuation will hurt you from another point with disastrous effect. Five millions white men fighting to be relieved from oppression will never be conquered by twenty millions actuated by malice and pecuniary gain, mark that. We have the science, energy and vigor, with the help of God, to extricate ourselves from this horrible and unnatural difficulty pressed upon us by the North; the day of retribution is approaching, and will fall upon you deadly as a bolt from heavens; may your sojou
Knoxville, July 24.--Col. John H. Morgan sends by special courier to the headquarters of Tennessee, a despatch dated Georgetown, Ky., nineteenth instant.

The Keeper of the Richmond Bastile.--Capt. T. D. Jeffress, C. S. A., has been assigned to the command of the confederate States military prison, known as the Libby, corner of Twentieth and Cary streets. Capt. Jeffress was attached to the Fifty-sixth Virginia regiment, and was with Gen. John B. Floyd in Western Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee, and also served in the battles of Gaines's Mills and Frazier's Dam, around Richmond, where for gallant and meritorious service he received honorable mention in the brigade report.--Richmond Examiner, October 3.
39. the drummer-boy of Tennessee. When called the fife and drum at morn The soldier from his rest, And those to higher hrneying weak, A mother and a lad-- And they had come from Tennessee, Waiting the beat of reveille. But, penniless and widowe earn, His country's foes to face: For he had learned, in Tennessee, To beat the call of reveille. The boy upturned his eagey cried, “For, captain, I can drum! And I have come from Tennessee, To sound for you the reveille.” “Well, call the fiferuick reply, “Unnumbered with the dead! And Eddie Lee, of Tennessee, Shall play for you the reveille.” 'Twas many a weary m bear Across each swollen stream This “drummer-boy” from Tennessee, Who beat with him the reveille. But came the battle-sho; When, list!--the “morning call!” Our “drummer-boy” from Tennessee, Beating for help the reveille! Upon the valley sod he l encamping angel beckoning From drum and fife to part! And Eddie Lee, of Tennessee, Awaits the final re
de in Alleghany City, Pa., where she was raised. They are highly respectable people, and in very good circumstances. She was sent to the convent in Wheeling, Va., at twelve years of age, where she remained until the breaking out of the war, having acquired a superior education, and all the accomplishments of modern usage. She visited home after leaving the convent, and after taking leave of her parents, proceeded to this city in July last, with the design of enlisting in the Second East-Tennessee cavalry, which she accomplished, and accompanied the army of the Cumberland to Nashville. She was in the thickest of the fight at Murfreesboro, and was severely wounded in the shoulder, but fought gallantly, and waded Stone River into Murfreesboro on the memorable Sunday on which our forces were driven back. She had her wound dressed, and her sex was disclosed, and General Rosecrans made acquainted with the fact. She was accordingly mustered out of service, notwithstanding her earnest e
