ding difficulty to obtain a correct knowledge of the situation. Outrages of the enemy in Caroline. A citizen of Caroline county furnishes some items of interest. He says that during the passage of Grant's army through that county, when he was "changing his base" and making fast time for Richmond, the most outrageous excesses were committed upon the inhabitants by the negro troops. They stole everything they could lay their hands upon, offered indignities to the ladies, and committed excesses that ought to cause the blush of shame to mantle even a Yankee check. Among the buildings burnt by these finds was the house on the Belmont estate, owned by Cornelius Campbell; Campbell's mill, and a mill owned by Hon. R. M. T. Hunter, the latter in the upper part of Essex. There is a report that Mr. Hunter's residence has since been burned, but we presume this is without foundation. The people of Caroline will long remember the passage of the "Union" devils through their borders.
