A gentleman of high character and intelligence has given us a shocking picture of the outrages perpetrated upon helpless women in Alexandria. It makes the blood run cold to think that such things can be in this 19th century, and in a land pretending to be civilized; things which cannot be transferred to paper, but which, sooner or later, must bring down Divine vengeance on their perpetrators. We do not believe that Gen. McClellan is aware of these crimes; but, if we could get his hearing we would appeal to him as an honorable foeman to investigate them himself, and, for the sake of humanity and religion, put an end to such inconceivable horrors.
