who had raised himself to the rank of General is a subject undoubtedly of not less astonishment than pain.

Our Southern exchanges furnish some items of interest. The Yankees in the vicinity of Memphis are the barbarities of their brethren elsewhere. The Grenada (Miss) Appeal relates the following cases of cruelty: Among the instances related to us, we may mention that of Mr. B. B. Waddell, aid to Gen. Beauregard. A Federal Major, with two wagons and a troop of soldiers, went to his house in the country, stripped it of its furniture, taking provisions, family supplies, and everything he fancied and considered necessary for setting himself up house keeping in town.
