from those who have plundered them to keep their families from nakedness and starvation. Sometimes the Yankees receive information from, or are guided by, Union men belonging to the neighborhood, who also carry, or get the Yankees to carry, their grain, &c., to the enemy's posts. When our men discover these acts, they do not scruple to take the offenders' horses, but woe to them if the tender conscience (in wrongs towards Yankees) town people discover it. Complaints are at once sent to Martinsburg and to the South, bach, against them, and the man whose aged father has been incurred, and gray haired mother outraged by these Yankee miscreants, is denounced as a common cut threat and horse thief, because he way lays. Yankees wherever and whenever he can, and has taken the horse of a man who had a Union flag upon his house, made parties for the Yankees, rode with them himself, had his wife and daughters going about constantly with or among them, and kept employees who betrayed our sol

These gentlemen, whose private and safely-invested fortunes allow them to take time to wide, while we plundered country folk struggle for life, have, unfortunately, an undue inf
for the first time for months I have been able to get a Dispatch, and am scarcely less pleased with the face of my old friend than with the tone of the editorial encouraging our people to organize for local protection.

After thinking over the matter, and talking freely with those who know by experience what we want. I have set down the following as the main points, and wish from my soul, I had power to impress them upon these who, by a stroke of the pen, can place as where, if taken, we will not be killed, as poor Edwards was a short time ago, but be regarded as prisoners of war: a plan to organize the Bordermen of the Valley of Virginia. 1. None shall engage in this service except those who are from age, or physical disability, exempt from conscription, or are the only male members over sixteen years of age in families living in the border counties. 2.

The one man over sixteen in each border family is intended for those who have helpless families dependent upon them who cannot and will not go into the regular service, because they will leave them exposed to want and outrage. To give you some idea of these outrages, yesterday about two hundred Yankees went to the house of Mr. James Jones and destroyed everything in it, because they "harbored rebels"--that is, fed and sheltered their own sons when they came home from our army to see their mother. And we must not provoke these men by keeping soldiers here, lest they should do us more harm! You may wonder why the people here do not move South. We have no hearses, and no money to pay the ruinous prices charged there for food, and think it better to live on our enemies here than to go there to be the recipients of the
