Butler War upon women.

--The Savannah Republican learns that the report that Mrs. Phillips, of New Orleans, had been released from ship Island is incorrect. She is still incarcerated there is a ‘"State prisoner"’ The Republican adds:

Mrs. Laurie, the step daughter of Judge Rost on Commissioner to Europe, is also a prisoner at Ship Island, together with other ladies of New Orleans, Mr. Casey's house, on Canal street, is full of imprisoned ladies and many have been sent to the Penitentiary. Judge H. D. Ogden's wife is a prisoner in her own house, which is under the surveillance of the military, and she is not permitted to leave it except on Sunday, to go to church, and then she is accompanied by a guard. Mrs. Ogden is Imprisoned for no better reason than refusing to tell who bore her a letter from her husband, who is not in the city, advising her that it, she could not get a passport to join him, to endeavor to obtain one to go to Canada.
