--The Louisville (Bowling Green
, of the 1st inst., says:
In Anderson county
, we are informed the Federals
are committing such excesses as have never been witnessed in this State since the savages were driven from its borders, Arson, robbery, plunder, violence, every species of lawlessness is perpetrated by them.
The other day the house of Capt. Utterback
was burned by them.
A young gentleman named Thompson
was tied to a tree, and whipped terribly, when his persecutors left him, bleeding, suffering, and helpless, to perish, as he would have done but for the timely assistance of a gentleman who accidentally found him. Stock is driven off, granaries emptied, hay and wheat stocks burned, and a fine bridge across one of the leading turnpike roads there was burned the other day in pure wantonning.
This is a fair of Lincolnism in Kentucky
