ilding on Clay Street, near Front, fortified it, employed guards and armed sentinels, sat in midnight council, issued writs of arrest and banishment, and utterly ignored all authority but their own. A good many men were banished and forced to leave the country, but they were of that class we could well spare. Yankee Sullivan, a prisoner in their custody, committed suicide, and a feeling of general insecurity pervaded the city. Business was deranged; and the Bulletin, then under control of Tom King, a brother of James, poured out its abuse on some of our best men, as well as the worst. Governor Johnson, being again appealed to, concluded to go to work regularly, and telegraphed me about the 1st of June to meet him at General Wool's headquarters at Benicia that night. I went up, and we met at the hotel where General Wool was boarding. Johnson had with him his Secretary of State. We discussed the state of the country generally, and I had agreed that if Wool would give us arms and am

ever spoken to. I believe that Mr. Hill, after reaching his home at Madison, went to Milledgeville, the capital of the State, and delivered the message to Governor Brown. I had also sent similar messages by Judge Wright of Rome, Georgia, and by Mr. King, of Marietta. On the 15th of September I telegraphed to General Halleck as follows: My report is done, and will be forwarded as soon as I get in a few more of the subordinate reports. I am awaiting a courier from General Grant. All well; , September 17, 1864. President Lincoln, Washington, D. C.: I will keep the department fully advised of all developments connected with the subject in which you feel interested. Mr. Wright, former member of Congress from Rome, Georgia, and Mr. King, of Marietta, are now going between Governor Brown and myself. I have said to them that some of the people of Georgia are engaged in rebellion, begun in error and perpetuated in pride, but that Georgia can now save herself from the devastations

to press the siege, I instructed General Howard to send a division with all his engineers to King's Bridge, fourteen and a half miles southwest from Savannah, to rebuild it. On the evening of the 12th I rode over myself, and spent the night at Mr. King's house, where I found General Howard, with General Hazen's division of the Fifteenth Corps. His engineers were hard at work on the bridge, which they finished that night, and at sunrise Hazen's division passed over. I gave General Hazen, in p, but it is not done yet. We find only six feet of water up to King's Bridge at low tide, about ten feet up to the rice-mill, and sixteen to Fort McAllister. All these points may be used by us, and we have a good, strong bridge across Ogeechee at King's, by which our wagons can go to Fort McAllister, to which point I am sending all wagons not absolutely necessary for daily use, the negroes, prisoners of war, sick, etc., en route for Port Royal. In relation to Savannah, you will remark that Gen

Yankee "International" prize fight. The great prize fight between Heenan and King was to have come off in England on the 8th inst. --The stake is $10,000 and the ce, who is a smaller man than Sayers; but immediately upon Mace being whipped by King accepted a challenge from the latter. From an article in the New York Herald on the subject we take the following: Tom King is backed by the democracy, as the sporting denizens of the East End of London may be termed. He belongs to that qe for the championship in December next, and who is also training at Newmarket. King has also gone into training; but we have not yet heard of the locality he has selue and white stripe, an inch in width, with a red border of a similar depth. Tom King's standard is a white silk, with a rampant lion holding the Union jack, and thon the turf laid in one bet, $3,000 to $2,000 that Heenan will win. In this city King has many friends, and $1,000 to $500, and $1,000 to $600, will be readily taken
Artistic Liars. It is doing indifferent justice to Yankee capacities of invention to accuse them simply of lying in their accounts of battles and other events of this war.--It falls as far short of their merits as to say of Tom King and Heenan that they are men of pugnacity, and to take no note of their science. The Yankees are great artists. They not only lie, but know how to do it. They not only lie generally, but lie in detail, and they so manipulate and color the details that scarcely any one, not an eye-witness of the events they relate, can question the truth of the narrative. In their account of the fight at Reame's station they manifest inventive genius of the highest order. It is the testimony of our plain, unimaginative Confederate soldiers that, on that occasion the enemy fought with much loss spirit than usual. The Yankee account is spirited enough, if the fight was not. It gives, as usual, many circumstances, clothing the dry bones with such an illusion of flesh
