The Yankees Selling Negroes. --Some weeks ago a portion of General Mitchell's command was stationed at Larkinsville, a small town in Jackson county, Ala., on the Memphis Railroad. While there they pillaged the country as they are accustomed to do everywhere, and of course took and employed as many contrabands as they wanted, and kept them as long as they pleased. But the hypocritical cant of the enemy was most glaringly exhibited, in that after they were done with the negroes, instead of sending them to their owner or taking them away with them, they put them up at auction and sold them. The Yankees bid on them, but they were careful to let them be knocked off to residents who generally were the former owners, or the friends of the former owners.
