A subject of complaint.
--We understand that all of the Yankee
negroes are included in the number of abolition soldiers and non-commissioned officers to be sent home by General Winder
to-day by flag of truce.
The fact that these representatives of the ‘"irrepressible conflict"’ are thus to be removed beyond our bailiwick, by the flat of a military chieftain, provokes much comment from Virginians
and others who have been robbed of their negroes and other property by Lincoln
They think these black scoundrels should be sold, and the proceeds applied to the paying of losses sustained by patriotic citizens in this contest with the invading vandals.
Some of the negro captives would make excellent servants, and command, perhaps, $1,000 per head.
The confiscation of such contraband deserves, at least, a passing consideration from the authorities.
