d by the information obtained through his telegraph, he menaced at once the two important positions of Frankfort, the capital of the State, and Lexington; and passing between the two, he boldly pushed forward in the direction of Cincinnati. At Cynthiana he struck the railroad leading from that city to Frankfort, and after a brisk fight captured the Federal detachment stationed at that post, numbering four hundred and fifty men. The excitement was intense among his enemies. Even the State of O from the main army of invasion, and could only cause temporary alarms to the Federals. After having reorganized his troops and seen their number trebled by volunteers, who flocked to his standard from every part of the country, he started for Cynthiana. General Heth, who led the advance with his disvision, about twelve thousand strong, appeared before Covington on the 15th. But instead of finding a defenceless town, and seeing, as he had hoped, the great city of Cincinnati imploring for me

The remaining Federal troops at Indianola will probably be taken prisoners. The steamer Hannah M. Johnson, from Pensacola yesterday morning, reports eight war vessels off the harbor, supposed with reinforcements. Cincinnati,April 23.--A company of secessionists, 113 strong, left Cynthiana, Ky., yesterday, to join the Confederate Army. When the train reached Frankfort, they were ordered to display their flag, which they did by extending a secession flag from the car window. Stones were thrown at it, when the lieutenant fired into the crowd. The cars were immediately attacked by the citizens, and paying stones rained in upon them promiscuously. They finally got away with but little injury. Great excitement prevailed, and threats were made to tear up the track. Harrisbu

The Cynthiana (Ky.) News has been closed up by the Union forces, and J. A. Morey, its editor and proprietor, has been arrested on a charge of recruiting for the rebel army. If any evidence is wanting to convict him, the authorities may turn to his paper of the 19th September and find the following paragraph? "Any young man in Ohio or Indiana desirous of joining the Confederate army, can do so on application at this office." The State of Maine has received from the United States Government two hundred

To effect this, I wrote a letter feigning repentance, which procured me a release on parole for ten days, when I returned to Cynthiana to find that my wife had been buried four days. Considering that I was not bound by either law or honor to observe my parole, having been dragged to Ohio for my musket in one hand and the black flag of extermination to the foe in the other, I intend to avenge my own and my country's wrongs; and it thoughts of a murdered wife, and home made desolate, do not nerve my arm to strength and execution, I should be an ignoble son of Kentucky.

Of her armament or number of men he is not communicative — his parcel of honor especially forbidding any information on this point. Released from confinement. We learn from the Louisville (Ky.) Journal, of the 7th inst., that the two Newport gentlemen, H. G. Helm, Esq., and Robert Maddox, Esq, arrested by the order of General Mitchell, appeared before Judge Ballard of Louisville, on Tuesday last, and were by him discharged, there being no charge against them. Wm. B. Glaves, ex-Sheriff of Harrison county, and Perry Skerritt, Clerk of the some county, who were arrested at Cynthiana some two months since, suspected of sympathizing with the rebels, and sent to Camp Chase, near Columbus, Ohio, have been released.

hand of ice. That banner with the strange device — Excelsior!" Let me now tell the story of a Kentucky lady. It was related to me by one in whom implicit confidence can be placed. Some few weeks ago the hirelings of Lincoln went to Cynthiana, Ky., in search of "arms" and "Secessionists." A gentleman, whom I will call Smith, was a strong Southern man, and feeling that he would be among the first to be arrested, hastened away at dead of night. He was a man of wealth and influence, but ted, and stated his condition. The lady, who was herself wealthy, instantly and intuitively conceived a plan to relieve him. And what does the reader suppose that plan was? She ordered a horse to be saddled, took a servant behind her, went to Cynthiana, six miles distant, procured money for her friend, bought cloth, returned home, had the cloth cut and made into garments by the next morning, and started Smith off bright and early! Can any Virginia lady surpass this devotion to the Southern c
lion, and that if they continue to exhibit the same vigilance, courage and perseverance, it is believed they will soon bring the war to a close. Capture of Cynthiana by Morgan — surrender of the Federal troops. The New York Herald, of the 19th, contains the following account of another Federal disaster: Cincinnati, July 18--A man who came into Boyd's, on the Kentucky Central Railroad, this morning, reports that the town of Cynthiana. Ky., sixty-six miles from here, surrendered at 5 o'clock yesterday, after half an hour's fight. He saw Morgan and shook hands with him. Morgan's men number about 2,500. A soldier, who also came into Boyd's, mpathizers to-day. Louisville, July 18--The train has arrived from Lexington this evening. The railroad and telegraph have been repaired. Morgan's loss at Cynthiana greatly exceeded ours. Although most of Lieut. Col. Landrum's men were captured, he and thirty of his men have arrived at Lexington. Rebel invasion of Indi

Morgan's great objects in this raid into Kentuckynd frantically calling for assistance to defend it. Lexington could not spare a man to pursue him — because she momentarily expected an attach, Frankfort couldn't send her privatise in pursuit, because Morgan was hovering at her gates Paris and Cynthiana were in the same condition, and really had need of more men than could be brought to their defence — that is, if nobody pursued Morgan, and he was allowed his own time to prepare an attack on them.

We find the followiti Commercial, of Monday: The train which left Covington for Cynthiana yesterday morning, with Capt. William Glass and his company, and reached the town between 10 and 11 o'clock.
