Doing of the Vandalism Nashville.
--we copy the following from the Atlanta Confederacy:
A letter lately received in this city from a citizen of Nashville
, who left there after
the amender of the city, states that the Yankees

The house of Col. George Maney
(1st Tennessee regiment) was riddled, and his furniture ruined.
They committee depredations on the property of Rev. John
and others, and visited the residence of Col. Granville
with the same diabolical purposes, but were met at the door by his hero wife, armed with a pistol and bowie knife.
With a courage and determination of the women of 76, she confronted them, saying; "I have a husband, two sons, and a brother in the filed, batting for the South
If I were a man, I would be there, too, but as I'm only a woman, I have been left behind to protect my home, and I will do it. If one of your vandal crew dares to place his feet within this porch, he does so at this peril; for I will certainly kill him" The Yankees
stood amazed for a time, and finally quietly with drew, within attempting to enter the house.
