The Union men in East-Tennessee.--The Greenville (Tenn.) Banner of the twenty-sixth February says: The third Georgia Battalion had scarcely got out of sight of our town until some of our citizens, who had voluntarily taken the oath to support the Southern Confederacy, began to get very bold in denouncing the South and the Southern army, and advocating the Union--some abusing Governor Harris, wishing to see him hung by the Yankees; others saying that some of the Southern men would have to leave here when the Yankee army gets in, and many other expressions which are characteristic of the individuals expressing them. Col. Ledbetter has not left this country yet, and we give warning to those persons to be careful, lest they may have to face the Colonel in answer for a violation of their pledges to the Southern Confederacy. This is only a friendly admonition, to keep such individuals out of trouble. Our authorities are determined to not be bothered with a foe amongst us, while
New-York, Feb. 26.--We are well assured that a proposition from the rebel leaders for a new compromise has been submitted to our Government, and that either the programme or its substance is in the hands of a leading Democrat of our city. The object of the rebels in transmitting it to him we presume to be the manufacture of public sentiment in its behalf. The gist of the proposition we understand to run thus: 1. An armistice for a specified term, with a view to a peaceful adjustment of all differences. 2. A Convention of the States, with a view to such a revision of the Federal Constitution as will induce the slaveholding rebels to condescend to govern us in the future on terms nearly as favorable as in the past. We believe this is all for a beginning. New-York Tribune, February 26.
n the Ninth Illinois regiment was shot through the arm in the early part of the engagement at Fort Donelson, which paralyzed it for a moment. Leaving the ranks, he went back a short distance to where the temporary hospital was placed, had his arm dressed, and returned to take his place. Shortly afterward he received a shot in the thigh, which prostrated him. To some of his companions who came up to render him assistance, he remarked, I guess I can manage to get back, and by the assistance of his gun he once more limped to the hospital. Feeling considerably better after his wound was dressed, he again sought his regiment and took his place in the ranks. While in a stooping position as a skirmisher, a ball entered the back part of his neck, and passed lengthways through his body. Before he fell head-long to the ground, four or five other balls struck him in the head, literally shattering it to pieces and scattering his brains in every direction.

oward Belmont, and therefore the command changed its course, and moved down on the Warsaw road. When within eight miles of Warsaw, Major Thompson learned that they had been crossing their forces over the Osage during the evening. He immediately ordered the column forward at a rapid rate, and when within four miles of the town, came upon their pickets, which, after a short skirmish, were driven in, and chased at a smart gallop into the town, in time to intercept the prisoners named. The infantry coming up a half an hour afterward were posted on the bank of the river, and as soon as it was daylight fired upon their camp, wounding two or three, when the rest of the rebels broke and fled. Major Thompson, being unable to cross the river in time to make a successful pursuit, returned to Sedalia with his prisoners, whom he brought to St. Louis on Thursday, on their way to Alton. They were Brig.-Gen. Price, Col. C. Dorsey, Major Cross, and Capt. Inge. Louisville Journal, February 26.
Memphis, February 26.--We learn that some of our citizens are preparing for effective service on the Tennessee River. They will go out in squads of not more than five or six. Each man is a practised shot, with a rifle at long range, and each will go prepared with not less than one hundred rounds. They will take with them nothing but ground coffee, relying upon the citizens and their guns for food. They propose in these small squads to guard the Tennessee River. They will take their opp as great a terror to the enemy's boats as our gunboats were at Fort Donelson. Let each county bordering on the Tennessee River, in West-Tennessee, send a squad of such men on this duty, and the pilots will soon refuse to ascend a stream where death awaits them behind any big tree. A man may face a known or seen danger, but when he cannot divine how, from what quarter, and at what moment the arrow may be sped, he will shrink from it with an unaccountable dread. Memphis Avalanche, Feb. 26.
Who Furnished the Nashville Coals?--The Hamilton Bermudian, of February twenty-sixth, noticing the arrival of the rebel steamer Nashville at the port of St. George's, states that, having procured a supply of coals from the Mohawk, now lying in the harbor of St. George's, the Nashville proceeded to sea. Upon reference to the shipping intelligence column, we find that. the only vessel of that name in port is the ship Mohawk, Captain Fuller, which sailed for New-York March sixth. Inquiry into this matter, by the proper officers, should be made.--Tribune.
