hirty-one guerrillas were dividing the spoils, the second battalion of the first Missouri Cavalry came up and captured the whole party, all of whom were subsequently sent to St. Louis as prisoners. From Helena Moore and Blue next went to Columbia, and then to Corinth, where they detected and arrested two counterfeiters, making a great haul of counterfeit St. Louis city treasury warrants and gold dollars, both of which were well executed. Accompanying Colonel Truesdail's police force to Louisville, they there played the rebel, and hunted out Palmer and Estes, who burned the ammunition steamers at Columbus and were afterward sent to Camp Chase. With our army they came on to Nashville, and afterward ran as mail messengers — a very dangerous service. Getting on the track of a band of guerrillas between Bowling Green and Nashville, they piloted a cavalry force to the neighborhood, and captured a considerable number, who were brought to Nashville and were properly dealt with. They nex
s at Chattanooga, he came to Murfreesboro, where Bragg's army was then collecting. Staying here several days, he was urged by his Southern army friends to act as their spy in Kentucky. The better to conceal his own feelings and position, he consented to do so, and he left General Bragg's headquarters to go to that State by way of Nashville, feigning important business, and from thence to go to his home, passing by and through Rosecrans' army as it lay stretched out between Nashville and Louisville. The nameless man now makes his way to the Federal headquarters, seeks a private interview with General Rosecrans, and states his case fully as we have just related. Here was something remarkable, surely — a spy in the confidence of the commanders of two great opposing armies! Our general took much pains to satisfy himself of the honesty and soundness of the stranger. He was pleased with the man's candid manner, and his story bore an air of consistency and truth. Yet, he was a South
ket lines of the enemy: and passing through Memphis and Nashville-meeting his father at the latter place-he made his way to Portsmouth, Ohio, by midsummer of 1861; and soon after enlisted, first in Fremont's bodyguard, and subsequently in the Fourth Ohio Cavalry. After spending two months in acquiring a knowledge of cavalry drill, Corporal Pike and the rest of his company were mustered into the U. S. service at Camp Dennison, on the 20th of November, 1861; and early in the spring moved to Louisville, where they were assigned to General O. M. Mitchel's division, and soon marched toward Bowling Green. General Mitchel was too shrewd a judge of character not to discern quickly Pike's qualifications for the secret service; and before he had been under him a week, he sent him, with some twenty comrades, on a scout toward Green River, Ky. On his return, he found General Mitchel's division before Bowling Green, and with another soldier, crossed the Big Barren river on a raft, with a coil of r
sburg, under her assumed name of Frank Thompson, she acted as aid-de-camp to General Hancock, and was under fire during the whole period. After General Hooker took command of the Army of the Potomac, she went to the Western army, overtaking at Louisville the Ninth Army Corps, to which she had been for some time attached. Here she was not long in resuming her former vocation as a spy, and having aided in the capture of some rebel prisoners, she donned the butternut garb, and as a Kentuckian, n side, and wounded severely, though not mortally, the rebel captain who had attempted to secure her services. As the duty of a spy after this was likely to be extra hazardous, the commanding general detailed Miss Edmonds to detective duty in Louisville, and with great skill and tact she managed to detect and secure the capture of several rebel spies then in the city. She next visited Vicksburg, and after serving some time in the hospitals there as a nurse, was compelled by broken health to l

In all these operations, Newcomer soon succeeded in making him commit himself before other detectives, whom he had introduced as and their property confiscated. Newcomer was subsequently employed in ferreting out other cases of a similar character, of which there were great numbers in Louisville and Nashville. In one of these he detected one Trainer, a wagon master in the Union army, and his wife, who were engaged in rendering all possible aid and comfere seized with their contents, to the value of about seventy-five thousand dollars more. Through his efforts, and those of other detectives in the employ of the army police, the extensive smuggling which had been carried on by rebel emissaries in Nashville and Louisville was rendered so dangerous that most of it was abandoned.

at time, playing at Mozart Hall, or Wood's theatre, in Louisville, Ky., then the headquarters of the rebel sympathizers of thore her was full of danger, excitement, and importance. Louisville, at this time, was undermined by disloyal sentiments andgnant delight-even by wealthy and well known citizens of Louisville. Many of these plots Miss Cushman was the means of brinervice, however, which she rendered her country while in Louisville, was the detection of her landlady in the act of mixing ccessfully gammoned some of the leading secessionists of Louisville, especially a Mrs. Ford, and placed a very effectual embllen, of the new theatre of Nashville, Tenn., arrived at Louisville, engaged in looking up a good company of actors, and meee her a pass, and her only way, therefore, to get out of Louisville, was to run the blockade.

spy for General Crittenden. Leaving General Donelson after some months' stay, although earnestly requested to remain longer, Morford next found his way to Nashville, where he made numerous expeditions as a spy for General Negley. Buell was at Louisville, and Nashville was then the Federal outpost. Morford travelled about very readily upon passes given him by General Donelson, making several trips to Murfreesboro, and one to Cumberland Gap. Upon his return from the latter, he was arrested n in and Out of bar rooms, made friends with the rebel soldiers, and toward evening purchased a small bag of corn meal, a bottle of whiskey, a pound or two of salt, and some smaller articles, which he threw across his shoulder and started up the Louisville road, with hat on one side, hair in admirable disorder, and, apparently, gloriously drunk. The pickets jested at and made sport of him, but permitted him to pass. The meal, etc., was carried six miles, when he suddenly became sober, dropped i
