The secessionists in Kentucky, who have formed themselves into a regiment, are described as a savage set, who delight to keep every one in terror around them, and consider it a pleasure to chop up a man with an Arkansas tooth-pick. The wife of one of them, who is also a vivandierc, is a thorough soldier, and acts as lieutenant to a company which she drills herself. She is very handsome, and dresses in gay style, and the men all take pride in their dashing heroine, who expressed herself anxious to split a Yankee with her bowie-knife.--Albany Standard, Aug. 1.
