July 10.

A meeting was held in Huttonville, Randolph County, Va., at which the following resolution was adopted:

Resolved, That we, as citizens, are willing to live under the Federal Government and its laws, and that we will give any information to the Federal commanders in relation to the operation of certain bands of men known as Guerrillas or Mountain Rangers.

At New Orleans John H. Larue, “being by his own confession a vagrant,” was committed to the parish prison, and “Anna Larue, his wife, having been found in the public streets wearing a confederate flag upon her person, in order to incite riot,” was sent to Ship Island, by the command of Gen. Butler.--Special Order, No. 179.

The Provost-Marshal of Memphis, Tennessee, issued an order requiring all persons connected with the rebel army or government to leave the city with their families within five days.--A company of guerrillas, ninety in number, engaged in drilling in a field between Gallatin and Hartsville, Tenn., were captured by a body of Nationals belonging to Col. Boone's regiment and carried into Nashville.--Nashville Union, July 12.

John Morgan, the rebel guerrilla leader, issued an appeal to the citizens of Kentucky, calling upon them to “rise and arm, and drive the Hessian invaders from their soil.” --A fight took place two miles south of Scatterville, Ark., between a detachment of the First Wisconsin cavalry and a rebel force of ninety men under Capt. Allen.

General Saxton, at Beaufort, S. C., reported to the War Department as follows:

I have the honor to report that every thing pertaining to the special service for which I am sent to this department is in a favorable condition. The negroes are working industriously. We have some fifteen thousand acres of corn and cotton under cultivation. It looks well. The system of voluntary labor works admirably. The people are contented and happy. When the new crop is harvested they will cease to be a burden upon the Government.

By adopting a judicious system of reward for labor, almost any amount can be obtained. Its proceeds will pay the expense.

The gunboat Monongahela was this day launched at Philadelphia, Pa.--Enthusiastic meetings were held at Lockport, N. Y., and Hartford, Ct., for the purpose of devising means to meet the call of President Lincoln for three hundred thousand additional troops.
