Reprehensible conduct.

--It is stated on the best authority that the conduct of the armed guard stationed around the Fredericksburg cars, on their arrival in this city, is most disgraceful to them and insulting to gentlemen who have to put up with their impertinences, in the shape of rude hustling from the cars, and threats of arrest if the party complains. Ever since the battle at Chancellorsville our citizens, and citizens of other States, have attended on the arrival of the cars for the purpose of succoring the wounded by retirements, and lending assistance in getting them to the hospitals; but they cannot be exce to do so if they are rudely repulsed from the cars by the bayonets of the soldiers. In this matter we speak more in behalf of those citizens of other State who go to the cars to meet their wounded relatives, and are rudely deed the privilege, than our own, who have by experience learned to stand anything.
