I could I assured the prisoners of their safety, that they would have humane treatment wherever they might be. The writer then describes an interview with Col. Hanson, of Kentucky: When I got back to my command, I found one of our Lieutenants had Colonel Hanson, of the Kentucky 2d, in custody. He was a rough-looking cuColonel Hanson, of the Kentucky 2d, in custody. He was a rough-looking customer, dressed in citizen's dress, short, muscular, and bleary-eyed; he looked to me as a fit person to command a band of privates. He said he wanted somebody to tell him where to march his men, that he was tired waiting. He acted and talked like one having a "heap of authority," and not much like a prisoner. Finding no one to give him immediately the information he desired, he became sociable. This is followed by a partially fabricated narrative of a conversation with Col. Hanson, in which the latter exhibited good pluck, under adverse circumstances. The Illinois officer comes to the following conclusion: I thought — confound the fellow —
; and setting to work industriously, made money rapidly, and in due time fulfilled his part of the bargain. Having secured the funds, a large amount, our Yankee doctor concluded that a little further arrangement for his individual benefit wouldn't injure his conscience much, so he sold the negro, realizing a handsome profit, and placed the sum in his own pocket. Other ances of his sharpness are related, but this is sufficient for all practical purposes. Returning to his native country, he joined the abolition army, and came South to make war upon the institution to which he is indebted for his pecuniary success. A gentleman from the same part of New York, now connected with the Georgia Hospital Association, in this city is cognizant of all the events in Dr. Hanson's late history; while the facts concerning his career in Augusta are vouched for by most respectable citizens of that place. This case is a fair illustration of the baseness of the foe with whom the South has to deal.
A dispatch from Memphis, July 28th, says: The Grenada Appsal, of the 24th, has a special dispatch of the same date, stating that Commander Davis and the gunboats had attacked the batteries and the ram Arkansas, and had been repulsed, with the loss of five boats sunk or disabled. The dispatch is replete with the usual rebel bombast. The Appeal, of the 25th, has a dispatch announcing the occupation of Coldwater by the Union troops. Jeff. Thompson had destroyed the bridge at Hanson to prevent a further advance. From Gen. Pope's army — Arrests at Luray — Suppression of guerrillas. Warrenton, July 30. --Col. Lloyd, of the Sixth Ohio cavalry, commanding at Luray, yesterday, in pursuance of General Pope's order, arrested all the male inhabitants of the town and lodged them in the Court-House preparatory to administering the oath of allegiance. This course was rendered imperatively necessary from the fact that several of them had left their houses, and it was
[Southern Association Dispatch.]Latest from Murfreesboro. Murfreesboro, Jan. 3. --All is quiet along the lines to-day. Cold rain has been falling, with alight intermission, all day, which bears heavily upon our men, who have now been six days in line of battle. The enemy, in strong force, continue in position about three miles northwest of the town. Nashville has been reinforced. Brig. Gen. Hanson was severely wounded in the leg in the late battle.
the Cumberland, January 5th, 1863 To Major General H. W. Halleck, General-in-Chief: We have fought one of the greatest battles of this war and are victorious. Casantire success on the 31st was prevented by a surprise of the right flank; but we have never then at beaten the enemy after three days fighting. They fled with great precipitation on Saturday night. The last of their columns of cavalry left this morning. Their loss has been very heavy. Generals Rams and Hanson are killed.

re expected from Danville. I went in with a flag of truce. It was fired on five times. Officer apologized, saying he thought it was a man with a white coat on. Very dangerous mistake, at least for me. Demanded unconditional surrender. Told Col. Hanson we had his reinforcement's cut off, and resistance was useless. He refused to surrender, and I than ordered him to order out the non combatants, as we would be compelled to shell the town. He posted his regiment in the depot and various housharge to be made. This ought to have been done at first; but Gen. Morgan said, when it was urged on him, that he wished to avoid the destruction of private property as much as possible, and he would only permit it as a last and final report. Col. Hanson still held out in hopes of receiving reinforcements, and only surrendered after we had fired the buildings in which he was posted. His force consisted of the 20th Kentucky, about 370 men, and twenty or twenty-five stragglers from other comman

Hanson, of the 20th Kentucky, (Federal,) was captured at Lebanon, Ky., and was paroled with his regiment at his own earnest request, he promising to report within He not only abused the men as a parcel of horse-thieves and scoundrels, but took their boots and hats from them, and threw them away in their presence. Lieutenant Colonel Hanson also came up a short time afterwards and took away from one of the parties some crackers and cheese, which he had been allowed by the sergeant to purchase. In a few days afterwards Lieutenant Colonel Hanson was ordered to Louisville to do provost duty, relieving Lieutenant Colonel Sterritt, of the 25th Michigan V. L who was ordered to the field.

"Under which King!" --A German paper states that on a recent sunday there were stormy scenes in some of the churches in Holstein. A great number of pastors limited themselves to offering up the prescribed prayer for "the legitimate sovereign," and so kept open a line of retreat to either camp. Pastor Hanson, of Wansback, who knew the of his people, prayed simply "for the King," without adding the name of Christian IX; but, in spite of this precautions, a great in the congregation and several noisily left the church. In a church at Keil, pastor Ludeman prayed for King Christian IX, "on condition that he be recognized by the Germanic Diet." The declaration was received by and laughter.
