The following address to his troops was issued from headquarters at Knoxville, Tenn. on the 4th inst,: Soldiers: Your country makes a fresh appeal to your patriotism and courage! It has been decided that Kentucky must be freed from the detested Northern yoke, and who so fit to carry out this order as yourselves! The road is well known to you! You have already taught the tyrants at Tomkinsville, Lebanon and Cynthiana, that where Southern hearts nerve Southern arms, our soldiers are invincible!

Any baker who shall, in defiance of this order, demand more for his loaves than Gen. Butler has appointed, shall forthwith be committed to prison, and dealt with as the military authorities shall direct. Attempts have been made in Europe to keep down the price of bread, but in those instances the State has always recouped out of the national funds those who were compelled to sell under the market price.
