rty destroyed must have been worth millions of dollars. Roddy, who crossed Oct. 11. the Tennessee at Guntersville, threatening Decherd, retreated on learning that Wheeler had done so, and escaped without loss. Gen. Grant, having assumed Oct 18. at Louisville command of his new department, telegraphed, next day, to Gen. Thomas at Chattanooga to hold that place at all hazards, and was promptly answered, I will hold on till we starve. Famine, not fire, was the foe most dreaded by the Army of the Cumberland, though it had a pretty rough experience of both. Proceeding forthwith to Chattanooga, the new commander found Oct 23. Gen. Hooker's force concentrated at Bridgeport, preparing to argue with Bragg our claim to supply our forces at Chattanooga by means of the river and the highway along its bank, instead of sending every thing by wagons across the mountains on either side of the Sequatchie valley — a most laborious and difficult undertaking, which left our men on short

fatal approach of the rebel anaconda. It came within fifty yards of us, and our men continued the fire. When they had approached thus near, a captain or lieutenant in the Lexington Home Guards ran up a flag of truce. We knew nothing of it in our part of the field, and continued at work until we saw that the enemy had ceased firing. The surrender speedily followed, when we were made to take an oath that if found again in arms against Treason, the penalty would be death.--Neosho Register, Oct. 3. Another account. The following private letter from one of the Home Guards, who fought under Col. Mulligan, gives a highly interesting account of the fight at Lexington:-- Lexington, Sept. 21, 1861. my dear friend — You will receive, before you see this, the intelligence of the surrender of the garrison at Lexington. The fight which occurred on Thursday, of last week, was but preliminary to the greater fight which has since taken place, and which resulted in the unconditiona
And blasted all your glory! Nay! rouse! rehearse the solemn vows Which once our fathers plighted, Shoulder to shoulder let us stand Till North and South's united. The same bright stream that laps your State Rolls on the beach of ours; And many a Hoosier tendril is Twined with Kentucky's flowers. All human hopes, all human ties, Can brothers lightly sever? Nay! till our country's foes are crushed, Let's be allied together. Ye loyal ladies of this State, Who scorn Disunion's faction, Arouse your brothers, gallants, sons, To patriotic action. Your eloquence can touch their hearts; Your smiles will hosts assemble; Place in their hands that “standard sheet” Before which traitors tremble. Ladies! we hail your grateful acts With true, heart-felt emotion, And for you and our country's rights We pledge life-long devotion; May fairest flowers strew your path On earth to God's own heaven; And e'er on glory's pages live Kentucky's loyal women. Camp Indiana, Hardin Co., Ky., Oct. 28, 186
The battle-field of Bull Run is owned by George Leary, of New York, son of the famous hatter. As soon as the war is over, certain parties, with the consent of Mr. Leary, intend building an immense hotel there, to accommodate the curious, who will flock there to inspect the battle-field.--Woonsocket Patriot, Oct. 4.
ode to negro Liberty. --The pastor of the church in Dayton, Ohio, where Vallandigham attends, the other day gave out the beautiful hymn: My country, 'tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty, Of thee I sing; whereupon Vallandigham wrote the pastor a scurrilous letter, roundly abusing him for introducing an ode to negro liberty into religious exercises.--Lawrence (Kansas) Republican, Oct. 10.
Gen. Buckner, at Rochester, on Green River, Ky., forcibly took a fine yoke of oxen and other property from the Rev. Mr. Wiggins, a worthy clergyman, and paid him with a three hundred dollar check on the Southern Bank at Russellville, where he hadn't funds to the amount of a dollar. To say nothing of the epauletted rascal's forcible seizure of the property, his giving a check upon a bank in which he had no money deposited was a penitentiary offence under our laws. We hope the officers of justice in that section will do their duty. We are well aware, that if Buckner shall be put to hard work at Frankfort in the service of the State, his friend the Governor will let him loose, but he should be sent there anyhow.--Louisville Journal, Oct. 12.
A Kentucky girl.--Capt. Claypool, living about ten miles from Bowling Green, is commander of a company of Home Guards. He had the guns of his company at his house, but, on hearing of the arrival of General Buckner at Bowling Green, he sent them to Colonel Grider's camp in a neighboring county. The next day a squad, despatched by Buckner, called at his house, and, finding only his daughter, demanded the guns of her. She answered that they were not there, and that, if they were, she wouldn't give them up. They handed her Gen. Buckner's order for the weapons and she tore it up before their faces. They went to the bucket and took each a drink of water, whereupon she threw the rest of the water out of the bucket and commenced scouring the dipper. They concluded they could do no better than to go back and tell their General about their adventure and get fresh instructions.--Louisville Journal, Oct. 12.
Ely presented with A wooden sword by his fellow-prisoners.--Hon. Alfred Ely, M. C., of the Rochester, (N. Y.) district, in Lincoln's Congress, who was captured on the field of Manassas on the memorable 21st of July, and who has since been imprisoned in one of the Richmond tobacco factories, was the recipient, a few days since, of a valuable token of the regard and esteem in which he is held by his fellow-prisoners. An ingenious artisan among the number fabricated a wooden sword of considerable dimensions and comely shape, together with a rope sash, which was presented to the belligerent Congressman by a committee in an address, which was replied to by the recipient of the honor in excellent style, followed by an acceptance of the gift. The prisoners, of whom Mr. Ely is one, seem to get along very well under the care of Capt. G. C. Gibbs, who has them in charge. Mr. Ely himself certainly has not suffered in flesh, however he may have done in the spirit.--Richmond Examiner, Oct. 7.
