e arrangements must be made, still assured the committee that whenever the Federal forces occupied the town all measures needful to secure protection to persons and property, as demanded by the usages of civilized warfare, should be observed. I deem it proper to add, for the information of your readers, that Gen. Augur gave no satisfaction to the committee as to whether the Yankee army would pay for army supplies taken from citizens, and also admitted that slaves coming into the Yankee lines would be sheltered and held against reclamation. Justice to the people and authorities of Fredericksburgh requires that this much should be published, in order to correct the idle and baseless gossip circulating as to the mode of our occupation by the Yankees. No truer or more loyal population can be found in the confederate States than that of Fredericksburgh, now subjected to the inexpressible humiliation and distress of Yankee dominion. I am, sir, eZZZ., A citizen of Fredericksburgh.
