Prisoners taking the oath to the U S. Richmond, Va., July 27th.To the Editors of the Dispatch.

They were boasting of the splendid feats they were going to perform, and how they were going to wreak vengeance on us for the reason that they were made conscript rebels A few hung their heads, no

Crittenden's headquarters, and thence to Gen Rosecrans's headquarters, and there I was ordered to report to Col. Truesdale, at Nashville. My Instruction from Gen. Morgan was to go to Nashville, deliver letters to his (Morgan's) friends in Nashville, and then to learn whether there were any calse bottoms, for carrying dispatches. I have nor his name; it begins with H. A. B. Johnson. Truesdale, whom the Yankees denounce as an infamous swindler and scoundrel, takes the matter in hand: Note from Chief of Police to Gen. Rosecrans. General: I have sent Johnson back with information not very inviting to Gen. Morgan; yet I am of opinion the latter will make a raid upon some point in your command within ten days.

Gen Rosecrans promptly crushed the attempt of the proprietors of the Metropolitan Record, published in New York, to supply its St Louis subscribers with their traitorous sheet, under the title of "Vindicator" The General sent for a copy, when the Vindicator arrived, and when he was satisfied that it was the same paper as the Record, he issued an order to suppress its circulation in his department.

My action in telegraphing these orders to Chattanooga in advance of my arrival there, was induced by information furnished me by the Secretary of War of the difficulties with which the Army of the Cumberland had to contend in supplying itself over a long mountainous and almost impassable road from Stevenson, Ala, to Chattanooga, Tenn, and his fears that Gen Rosecrans would fall back to the north side of the Tennessee river. To guard farther against the possibility of the Secretary's fears, I also telegraphed to Maj Gen. Thomas on the 19th October from Louisville, to hold Chattanooga at all hazards; that I would be there as soon as possible. To which be replied on the same date, "I will hold the town till we st

The Provost Marshal-General has ordered the seizure of Poliard's History of the War, the Confederate Official Reports, the Life of Stonewall Jackson, Morgan and his Men, and "all publications based upon rebel information," in the department of Gen Rosecrans. General McCullum has seized for the United States Government all the unfinished locomotives at Portland, Maine, which were being constructed for the Grand Trunk (Canada) Railway. Finally, there is a large business done in seizing runaway British subjects for soldiers, disloyal clergymen who refuse to pray for the Union, and unhappy contrabands, who, if able-bodied men, have the choice of working on plantations under Yankee drivers, or being marched to slaughter by Yankee officers.
