Violence of the Lincolnites in Missouri.
--The Memphis Bulletin, of the 16th, says:
A letter was received in this city this morning, from a young Missourian who has just been driven out of Franklin county
in that State, in which it is stated that the Lincolnites are destroying the houses, fences and growing crops in that vicinity; that they maltreat and violate the persons of reputable ladies, and turn mothers and children out of their houses to get shelter as they can. The letter details many of their atrocities, and we regret that we have not room for the whole.
It concludes by appealing to Tennessee
to send arms and men into Missouri
to protect and defend them from a life made miserable on account of the despotism of the Lincolnites.
The letter was written from North Fork, Arkansas
, and is from a son to his father living in this city.
