September 4. Leslie Coombs, of Kentucky, in a letter to the chairman of the Syracuse (N. Y.) Conventions, held this language: These peace meetings, with us, and, I presume, everywhere, are mere soft words for treason, and we shall so treat them. I am gratified to find you still at your post, and have not caught the Bull Run panic, which has done some mischief in Kentucky. I am on guard all the time, and ready for action. If the rebels dare make a war upon us, we will sweep them clear, and that rapidly. We are wide awake, and defy their malice as much as we scorn their blustering. The Union, the Constitution, and the enforcement of the laws, must be kept aloft everywhere, and all mere party platforms trampled under foot.

The party proceeded nearly thirty-five miles, and when about twelve miles west of South-Mills they came across a company of rebels, on their way toward Richmond. Major Wheelen made such a disposition of his force that he succeeded in capturing the whole command, consisting of two commissioned officers and one hundred and eleven privates. The rebel company had gathered along the route thirty-eight negroes, who were tied, and destined for Richmond. This morning the prisoners were marched into Suffolk, and placed under a guard from the Third regiment New York volunteers. They were conscripts, intended to fill up old regiments.

Such publications have done immense injury to our

Women stood by the roadside with pails of water, and displayed Union flags. The wonder was, where all the Stars and Stripes came from. Knoxville was radiant with flags. At a point on the road from Kingston to Knoxville sixty women and girls stood by the road-side waving Union flags and shouting: Hurrah for the Union. Old ladies rushed out of their houses, and wanted to see General Burnside and shake hands with him, and cried: Welcome, welcome, General Burnside! welcome to East-Tennessee! --(Doc. 168.)
