A Kentucky girl.--Capt. Claypool, living about ten miles from Bowling Green, is commander of a company of Home Guards. He had the guns of his company at his house, but, on hearing of the arrival of General Buckner at Bowling Green, he sent them to Colonel Grider's camp in a neighboring county. The next day a squad, despatched by Buckner, called at his house, and, finding only his daughter, demanded the guns of her. She answered that they were not there, and that, if they were, she wouldn't give them up. They handed her Gen. Buckner's order for the weapons and she tore it up before their faces. They went to the bucket and took each a drink of water, whereupon she threw the rest of the water out of the bucket and commenced scouring the dipper. [25]

They concluded they could do no better than to go back and tell their General about their adventure and get fresh instructions.--Louisville Journal, Oct. 12.
