Disgraceful Doings of the enemy.

--The Memphis Appeal learns some facts about the disgraceful proceedings of the enemy at Fredericktown, Mo., after the evacuation of the town by the Confederate forces. It says:

‘ A note from Mr. J. L. Shumate, of New Madrid, Mo., says that after the evacuation of Fredericktown by Jeff. Thompson, the Northern Goths and Vandals burned a portion of the town, (nine houses,) pillaged the Catholic church, arrested some of the ladies of the place, forcibly tore their ear-bobs from their ears and their rings from their fingers, and offered them other indignities too hateful to mention.
