A rebel arrested by two young ladies.--A Cynthiana (Ky.)
correspondent of the Cincinnati Commercial says that the daughter and niece of Colonel
H----, concluded, recently, they would have a little fun, and to carry out their plan, dressed themselves in men's apparel, procured an old shot gun, and proceeded to the field where the Colonel
was at work.
One of the girls, shot gun in hand, took her position a few paces off, while the other stepped up and laid her hand on him and said: “By the authority and in the name of the United States Army, I arrest you as guilty of treason.”
submitted without resistance, but said: “Gentlemen, in the name of God, what have I done?”
The reply was that he would learn that, and have all things satisfactorily explained at Camp Chase, which caused the Colonel
to turn very white; and they all walked to the house, where the children were all posted in the matter, and got into a titter, which caused a loud burst of laughter from all hands except the Colonel
, who was very belligerent when he found that he had actually been arrested by two small young ladies, his daughter and niece.--Louisville Journal, Dec
