brings the information that Lincoln's emancipation proclamation has wrought a very great change in public sentiment, and that many who were heretofore decided Union men are now strong for the South. It will be remembered that some months ago gentlemen, for the privilege of taking the Yankee oath of allegiance, were charged, according to their ability to pay, from $50 up $5,000, and where they could not pay the money property to the amount levied was taken. A few weeks ago, in fright at the present state of public feeling. General Boyle issued an order that all who had taken pay should refund the money or property. The Lincoln Marshal in Bourbon county, who had taken the property of a gentleman, was called upon by the owner for its restoration. The Marshal being unable to refund, the gentleman at once had him arrested and imprisoned, and last accounts he was still in limbo. This shows that a great revolution has taken place, and that we yet have much to hope for in Kentucky.
