A correspondent of the New York Tribune
, from Memphis
July 2, says:
has discovered that the national
forces held Memphis
Yesterday, Col. Hillyer
's attention was first called to the obnoxious publication, and the paper suspended till Dr. Fewikes
, the editor, retired.
This same Fewikes, assuming to be a loyal man, was permitted to associate with some of our commanders, to learn their plans and enjoy their confidence.
A little Ben. Butler
or Low. Wallace
rule would have an admirable effect upon him.
The paper is now edited by J. B. Bingham
, who is claimed to be sincerely loyal.
But this morning's issue in reply to a Northern Journal, exposing Galloway
, the runaway postmaster, who was a Floyd upon a small scale, a defacer to the Government
, and an original, violent, unscrupulous traitor, defends the runaway.
The article was probably written by Fowlkes
before his withdrawal.
If not, there is no cure for the Avalanche
except Union bayonets.
Lots Cast for hostages — who are the parties!
The New York Tribune
publishes the following:
--Dear Sir: Your letter of the 18th, and Lieut. Connolly
's of the 25th, have been received by the Colonel
He has been anxiously expecting the one you were to have written the following day. There is nothing of interest to communicate.
Our existence here is rather monotonous.
We, however, manage to vegetate by procuring, in addition to our rations, some indispensable articles which the market here furnishes, at prices that make fearful inroads into our already dilapidated exchequers.
Our time is spent in playing ball, cards, chess, &c., walking, smoking, snooping, philosophizing, speculating, criticising, and, ‘"like Micawber,"’ waiting for something to turn up. There are confined here 44 officers, and about 600 non-commissioned officers and privates.
Among the former are five Colonels
, six Lieutenant Colonels
, five Majors
, twenty-three Captains
, sixty-four Lieutenants
, five Surgeons, and three Chaplains from the army.
The navy is represented by thirteen of its officers--forty-two are from the State of New York
, and twenty-eight have been in confinement since the battle of Manassas
The health of the Colonel
and the other officers is good.
Two of our men have died this week; the burial place is outside the enclosure of the grave yard.
, of the 42d New York, (Tammany regiment,) Austin
, of the 24 Kentucky
, Assistant Surgeons Slocum
, of the Navy, and Houman, Medical Purveyor, Blank
's division, have been chosen by lot, and are now held as hostages — who for, or what for, we do not know.
The two former, we think, are held for two gentlemen whom Fremont
caught filibustering in Virginia
, Lieuts. Bagley
, desire to be remembered to you and all friends.
The imprisoned clergy of Nashville.
We have already given our readers some account of the imprisonment in the Penitentiary, by Andy Johnson
, of several clergymen of Nashville
, who refused to take the oath of allegiance to the Abolition Government
The following are the orders of the Tennessee Haynan
, in their cases:
Sir — I have to request that you will issue stringent orders prohibiting all visitors to the members of the clergy this day sent as prisoners to the penitentiary, except such as have special permission from me for that purpose; and I would add, this privilege should be granted only for good and sufficient reasons.
I would suggest that no encouragement should be given to that secession spirit and feeling which are manifested in the numerous offerings of delicacies, etc., by sympathising rebel friends.
Those men were not sent to the penitentiary, there to be kept as objects of special attention from traitors, nor be lionized by a class of people who, if properly dealt with, would be allowed the privilege of expressing their sympathy only within the same place of confinement.
The are there as enemies of our Government, and as such are entitled to, and should receive, such consideration as attaches to a person guilty of such a crime.
State of Tenn., Ex'vr Department Nashville,
June 28, 1862. Lieut. Col. McLain
, Acting Provost Marshal
, Sehen, Sawrie and Baldwin
are under arrest, and they are hereby placed in your ensued.
Should they desire to give evidence of their loyalty, by taking the oath of allegiance, and giving their individual bond in the sum of $5,000 each for the faithful observance thereof, they will be permitted to do so, and their release ordered accordingly.
If, however, it is their determination not to give such evidence of loyalty, they will be committed to prison, there to remain until arrangements are completed for their transportation South, beyond the Federal
lines, there to be left, with the distinct understanding that if they recross, or come again within said lines during the rebellion, they will be considered spies, and dealt with accordingly.
Engagement with Louisiana cavalry.
Warrenton, Va., July 13, 1862.
--The policy of concentrating and consolidating the scattered armies of Virginia
, under General Pope
, has already developed good results.
For many miles the territory has been cleared of rebel partizans who previously were continuously annoying our outposts and trains.
All the army officers and men are delighted with the consolidated command.
's command, to Gen. Bank
's corps, of Gen. Pope
's army, entered Culpeper
yesterday, and attacked and repulsed about one hundred rebel cavalry, said to belong to the Eighth Louisiana, killing one, wounding five, and taking eleven prisoners. Among the latter was a lieutenant, who, a few hours before, was seen in our lines, and a German, who had three times before broken his parole.
Our loss was three slightly wounded.
We captured three horses.
