ngs, Ky., January 6th, 1862. To the People of Kentucky: When the present war between the Confedertes and the United States commenced, the State of Kentucky determined to remain neutral. She regarhis messages, spoke of the chosen attitude of Kentucky with open denunciation, and on the one hand ther hand, he privately promised the people of Kentucky that it should be respected. In violation ofcion, thus designing to control the people of Kentucky, and to threaten the Confederate States. The the administration of your State government, Kentucky was being held to the United States, and bounf, a new government has been established, and Kentucky admitted into the Southern Confederacy. Can indolence? May the proud genius of my native Kentucky forbid it. In these mountains, where freedederate States on Cumberland river, in south-eastern Kentucky, I make this appeal to you. You are aling columns of the South, or is the spirit of Kentucky dead? Geo. B. Crittenden, Major-General. --L[1 more...]
f the United States. The first amendment to the Constitution, declares that Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech or of the press. President Lincoln, and his Cabinet, have wilfully disregarded the spirit of this article. Numerous instances could be cited to prove that the solemnities of an oath have not restrained them in their efforts to abridge the freedom of speech, and to muzzle the press. The numberless arrests made by them in Western and Eastern Virginia, in Kentucky, in Missouri, in Maryland, in Washington City, and also in the free States, when nothing more was charged against the parties arrested, than the declaration of their opinion, in condemnation of the policy of President Lincoln and his Cabinet, show that freedom of speech is not tolerated by them. The notorious fact that papers have been suppressed in New-York, Philadelphia, and elsewhere, by the exercise of Executive power, fully attests a scandalous usurpation for the destruction of the in
les up the stream, and to within a thousand yards of the forks of the creek, which I had learned the enemy were then occupying. I drew up my force on the sloping point of a semi-circular hill, and at twelve o'clock sent forward twenty mounted men, to make a dash across the plain. This drew the enemy's fire, and, in part, disclosed his position. The Fifty-fourth Virginia regiment (Col. Trigg) was posted behind the point of the same ridge which I occupied. I immediately sent forward two Kentucky companies, to pass along this crest of the ridge, and one company, (Forty-second Ohio,) under command of Capt. F. A. Williams, together with one under Captain Jones, (Fortieth Ohio,) to cross the creek, which was nearly waist-deep, and occupy a spur of the high rocky ridge in front, and to the left of my position. In a few minutes, the enemy opened fire from one six and one twelve-pounder. A shell from the latter fell in the midst of my skirmishers on the right, but did not explode. Soon

As every thing concerning the contest in Kentucky is of peculiar interest to you and to the readers of yourayne County, which was alone productive in this region of Kentucky, had been exhausted, and the neighboring counties of TennIf no enemy had appeared, the quitting of this portion of Kentucky had been gravely considered and almost determined upon, ae been compelled. It was impossible to move further into Kentucky, from the barrenness of the mountains between that point ear, while passing through the hilly and barren region of Kentucky, towards Knoxville and the railroad. I have thus brief

I, together with my boys, on last Saturday, opened the ball with secesh for the Second Indiana cavalry, and made the rebels pay for the music, as we killed three and wounded two! with none hurt on our side — and now for the story. On Friday morning I was ordered out, with my company, for picket duty, with three days rations. I tell you the boys, when they heard the order, were tickled to death, and so was I, and off we started, and before night I had eight posts picked out, and my men placed at them, beside what I had at my headquarters

One of these letters is as follows: sent.

ch and wait. From certain indications, I had for several days concluded that Fort Henry, on the Tennessee River, near the boundary line dividing the States of Kentucky and Tennessee, was the point aimed at; indeed, I believe I intimated as much in some of my previous letters, and I was not surprised to learn, on Saturday, the fur own valued officers now in the enemy's hands. The list of officers, so far as I have been able to learn it, is as follows: Brig.-Gen. Lloyd Tilghman, of Kentucky, commanding the district; Capt. Jesse Taylor, of Tennessee, Chief of artillery and Commander of the Fort; Lieut. W. O. Wotts, artillery; Lieut. G. R. G. Jones, as, which open into the heart of the seceded States. Taking now the map, you will observe that the two rivers are very near together at the dividing line between Kentucky and Tennessee. Two important points were selected on those rivers, near the State line, strong natural positions, which military science and engineering had made
friends of your honorable body, to make a few suggestions in regard to the condition of the State. A revolutionary provisional government has been formed in Southern Kentucky, within the line of the confederate armies, embracing nearly one third of the counties in the State. Within this boundary no revenue can be collected, and tproved disastrous to those whom they were intended to benefit. Especially have we a warning from the measures adopted in the old relief and anti-relief times in Kentucky; but the people cannot pay much more than their taxes now, much less their debts, without bankruptcy. I fear the sheriffs will resign if something is not done. as possible, and have no doubt the Board is using its best efforts to procure the vouchers required. I notified the Secretary of the Treasury, in due time, that Kentucky had assumed her portion of the interest of the public debt incurred by the war, by inclosing a copy of the resolution passed by the Legislature.
