incoln will never make a Union man of me; I'll pack myself and wife in a buggy and be off for New Orleans." Some of the other citizens manifested a similar spirit; but, on being shown the folly of their course, concluded to remain. After examining the battery, Commander Smith returned to the Lewis and ordered away two large boats, the same which were brought out on the Constitution, and they proceeded, under command of Acting Master Ryder, accompanied by Acting Master Merriam and Midshipman Woodward, of the Lewis, to the wharf, for the purpose of bringing off the guns. The crews dismounted two guns--one light and one heavy six-pounder — and carried them to the boats, and returning took off the carriages — both pivots of "home manufacture" --and platforms. While thus engaged the Union sailors were watching a crowd of about twenty boys and men, mostly foreigners, who sat around, and as the guns were being removed inquired sarcastically: "We expect a thousand men here; will you co

cally delineated in this sketch of one of the bravest of our soldiers: General Slack, of Missouri. Brigadier-General William Yonely Slack was born in Kentucky. When three years of age, his father emigrated to Boone county, Missouri, and settled near Columbia. Here he learned the tanner's trade, which he soon relinquished, and studied law. When a young man he went to Livingston county, Missouri, and commenced practicing law at Chillicothe. Soon after, he married the daughter of Major Woodward, of Richmond, in Ray country, Missouri, with whom he lived happily until her death, which occurred in January, 1856. The issue of this marriage was six children, only two of whom are living; a daughter and a son, but seventeen years of age, who has been in the service as a private since the commencement of the war, and who has done his duty as a soldier. On the 2d of December, 1857, Gen. Slack was again married to a daughter of Hon. Gustavus Bower, of Paris, Missouri, by whom he had one

, Winfield Byrd, of the 11th Alabama regiment, was taken prisoner by the Yankees uninjured. After his capture two Yankee officers assaulted him with their swords--one of them piercing him through the side, the other striking at his head. The blow was warded off by Byrd with his hand, and while his head was protected the blow was received on the arm and hand, inflicting a painful wound. The Yankees were subsequently driven back and Byrd recaptured. He is now at a house near the church. --Woodward, of the same regiment, was wounded, and is at the same place. Yankee Captives.
