Making War in dead Earnest. Cairo, February 14, 1862. The following facts and correspondence show the exasperated nature of the war in these parts. Soon the cry will be: No quarter! Col. Kellogg, commanding at Cape Girardeau, telegraphed to Acting Brig.-Gen. Paine, at Cairo, thus: Yesterday (February eighth) several companies of our cavalry, with one company of Ross's infantry, scoured the country west, bringing in fifty prisoners. Our cavalry also encountered a large force of rebel cavalry, fifteen miles below Bloomfield. They succeeded in routing them, killing seven, wounding many, and taking twenty prisoners. We had two missing and one wounded. They found five bodies, known to be Union men, murdered. W. P. Kellogg, Colonel Commanding. Gen. E. A. Paine, Commanding, Cairo.
General Paine's Reply. Col. Kellogg, Commanding, Cape Girardeau: Hang one of the rebel cavalry for each Union man murdered; and, after this, two for each. Continue to scout, capture, and kill. E. A. Paine, Brigadier-General Commanding. Cairo, February 8. That's laconic and specific. Had this policy been pursued from the start, rebels would have been scarce in Missouri. I hope Gen. Hitchcock, Gen. Paine's successor, will act out the example of General, now Colonel Paine.--Cleveland Plaindealer.

Thompson's marauding band. It will be remembered that, as the boat was approaching the shore where the enemy waited to seize her, Mrs. Eversol ran to the levee, and by her exclamations and gesticulations warned those on board of the danger, and enabled them to escape. The handsome testimonial to her merit was richly deserved, but a richer one is assured to her in the memories of her countrymen and countrywomen. Captain Sousley subsequently received from Mrs. Eversol the following modest and appropriate note: Commerce, Mo., February 5th. J. J. Mitchell, President Alton Packet Company: dear Sir:
