McIntosh, with some friendly Creeks. The attack was begun by Jackson in front, with a cannonade on the breastwork, about 9 o'clock A. M. No breach, however, could be made. A general charge was ordered and executed with success, abed from captivity a white woman and three children; whose husband had been one of the victims of the massacre. Capt. Campbell said: "It was impossible for Gen. Jackson to be taken by surprise. On a march, when the troops encamped even for a single night, he invariably threw up a breastwork of logs.

Republic,) the South has furnished sixty-one. It has been the same in regard to ambassadors. "To the South belongs Washington, Jefferson, Monroe, Madison, Patrick Henry, Clay, Marshall — men not less distinguished for their exalted character and noble qualities of heart than for their talents and intelligence. These men are not only an honor to their country and to their century, but the glory of humanity.

Our visit was received in the spirit which dictated it. She very kindly and cordially offered us her house and attention in case of sickness. She has three sweet and interesting children, all girls, aged from seven to thirteen. She is now engaged in ministering to the wants and comforts of the poor sick soldier, having several patients under her hospitable roof, and receiving her kind and cordial attention.

Jeff. Thompson, Brigadier General of the first military district of Missouri, having not only the military authority of Brigadier General, but certain police powers, granted by acting Governor Thomas C. Reynolds, and confirmed afterward by Governor Jackson, do most solemnly promise that for every member of the Missouri State Guard, or soldier of our allies, the armies of the Confederate States, who shall be put to death in pursuance of the said order of General Fremont, that I will "hang, draw and quarter" a minion of said Abraham Lincoln. While I am anxious that this unfortunate war should be conducted, as far as possible upon the most liberal principles of civilized warfare, and every order that I have issued has been with that obj
