this duty; they gladly performed it: but they desired the privilege of defending themselves, and the works their hands had made, with arms. Organized companies of them, armed and equipped at their own expense, tendered their services to aid in the defence of the city. But this privilege was denied them, and they cheerfully performed the duty assigned. The defeat of the national forces at Richmond, Kentucky, August thirtieth, 1862, opened the way for rebel invasion of that State to the Ohio River. There was no organized force to resist this; none to protect Cincinnati. Major-General Lewis Wallace, at that time in command of the city, promptly commenced the organization of a citizen force for the protection of the city. In the morning papers of Septemtember second, there appeared an order from him, declaring martial law, suspending business, and directing the citizens to assemble at designated places in each ward, for military organization. It was well understood that this ord

For two months past, the Colonel and most of his men have been wintering within the enemy's lines in the county above named. They have had several successful skirmishes with the enemy, and had, on a former occasion, sent out sixteen prisoners, who all arrived safely in Richmond.

Major Nonning was on a scout with a portion of the command, and entered Winfield about midnight, when he ascertained that the steamer Levi, bound for Charleston, lay on the opposite side of the river. Lieutenant Verdigan, with a solitary companion, was despatched across the river to reconnoitre, which was successfu

An order was issued from Headquarters, Friday night, prohibiting the landing of steamboats on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River, between Cairo and Paducah, and the crossing of skiffs from one side of the river to the other without a permit from some military officer. We arrived at Metropolis at seven P. M., where we found a number of women and children, who had escaps and to the citizens of Paducah whether we have not gained a reputation (even among the rebs and Forrest himself) worth having. New-York Tribune account. Paducah, Ky., March 29, 1864. Few who have had occasion to pass up or down the Ohio River have failed to notice and admire this place, which is noted for the beauty of its situation, its fine wharf, commodious business houses, tasteful residences, and above all, the evident enterprise of its people. Before the war, it had a populat
