provided by law. Sec. 2. This act shall take effect from its passage. Arrests of Southern men in Kentucky. The following from the Louisville Journal shows how Kentuckians are seized by the Yankee authorities and forcibly hurried out of the State, in defiance of law and justice: We learn from the Cincinnati papers that Deputy U. S. Marshal C. B. Pettit, of Bourbon county, arrived at Covington on Tuesday, having in custody C. C. Rogers, of Paris, and John Higgins, of Magoffin county, both noted rebels, who have for a length of time been giving aid and comfort to the rebels. Higgins was taken prisoner in Montgomery county, a few days since, by Capt. G. N. Hall, of Col. Epperson's regiment — He has been supplying the rebels with provisions and other means of sustenance.--Rogers had a number of letters in his possession, from parties of the State, to friends and relatives in the Southern army. One of the letters is from Frank Trontman, of Paris, law partner of

of this people. As I have heretofore said, the sentiment of our people is unanimous that the President should refuse the demand, of England for a release of Slidell and Mason, and if war ensue, our State would furnish more troops for such a war than are now in the field. A Singular character--Federal distrust of Kentuckians, &c. From the Louisville (Bowling Green) Courier, of the 28th ult., we extract the following items: There is a soldier in one of the companies at Hopkinsville who never wore a hat. Acting upon the maxim of Franklin, he seems determined to keep his head cool.--He is certainly an acentric character, but he has fire in his eye and strength in his arm. A gentleman informs us that while near Crittenden's camp at Calhoun, the other day, he learned that the distrust of Kentuckians is so great that none are permitted to do picket duty for fear they will desert. It must be very comfortable to the Kentuckians to be treated in this way by their "br

en masse to the Confederate standard. As Gen. Marshall advances into the blue grass, the hardy mountaineers join him in hundreds at every cross road. The Woodsonville affair — official report. The following is the official report of Brigadier General Hindman, of the Woodsonville fight: Headquarters Advance Guard, C. A.,Ky., Care City, Dec. 19, 1861. Sir: --At 8 o'clock, A. M., on the 17th inst., I moved towards Woodsonville for the purpose of breaking up the railroad from the vicinity of that place Southward. My force consisted of 1,100 infantry and four pieces of artillery. When within two and a half miles of Woodsonville, conWoodsonville, concealed from the enemy's view, I halted the column and ordered forward Colonel Terry's Rangers, to occupy the heights of my right, left and front; and Major Phifer's cavalry to watch the crossings of Green River still further to my left. These orders having been executed, and no force of the enemy or pickets seen, I advanced t

fer and Schoepf until the latter is strong enough to make the attack. One of Z.'s objects is to hold quiet possession of the river until the coal, provisions, and produce have been boated out to Nashville, and this would be defeated by bringing on a fight. If two or three more regiments are given to Schoepf, he can and will drive the rebels out; or if a force of six thousand will move down from Columbia and get in his rear, the whole party can be captured. This is the opinion of those at Somerset, and of gentlemen of intelligence now in this city, who know every foot of the territory. The Negro question — the Hason-Slidell affair. From a letter in the Cincinnati Commercial, dated Frankfort, December 19, we extract the following: If the agitation of the negro question is kept up by the radicals in Congress, I fear that we will lose strength in this State. Although it is no just reason for opposing the Government and its policy, I fear that if radical councils prevail

These orders having been executed, and no force of the enemy or pickets seen, I advanced the column till the right reached the railroad. This brought me within three quarters of a mile of the river and the enemy, but still concealed, except a small body of cavalry upon the extreme left. Here a company of rangers was detached to observe the enemy from Rowlett's Knob, which was to my right, across the railroad. A strip of timber-bordered the river parallel

, he says is entirely unobstructed by the Lincolnites, and there is uninterrupted communication with Marshall's army. The people are nearly unanimous in having the approach of Gen. Marshall, and as he advances will continue to swell his forces. The mountaineers of Eastern Kentucky have been kindled into a blaze of indignation by the outrages committed by the Hessians before their retreat from the country. They attacked the residence of Judge Brown, of the Criminal Court, in West Liberty, Morgan county, stealing all they could lay their hands upon, breaking open the bureau drawers, and making horse troughs of them and committing a variety of enormities of like character. The Judge, who is a citizen of wide influence, is himself collecting an army of his mountain fellow-citizens to protect their homes against these worse than vandals, and they are rushing en masse to the Confederate standard. As Gen. Marshall advances into the blue grass, the hardy mountaineers join him in hund

The only evidence which the country has of his resignation is in his villainous address published in the Bowling Green Courier, where he says that he "intends to exchange six years in the United States Senate for the musket of the soldier." The resolution of the Legislature fixte would furnish more troops for such a war than are now in the field. A Singular character--Federal distrust of Kentuckians, &c.

From the Memphis Avalanche, of the 27th ult., we take the following: We have received some information from a gentleman just from Bourbon county, Ky., confirmatory to the accounts we have had of the progress of the Southern cause in the Blue Grass section. He reports that Unionism is dead in that sectpondent of the Cincinnati Commercial, dated the 12th ult., writes thus: I informed you by telegraph last night of the election of Hon.

, whose men have become so bold that they come down into the counties so recently overrun by the Hessians and openly recruit for the Confederate service. The road from Paris to Prestonsburg, which our informant travelled, he says is entirely unobstructed by the Lincolnites, and there is uninterrupted communication with Marshall's army. The people are nearly unanimous in having the approach of Gen. Marshall, and as he advances will continue to swell his forces.
