lled for deadly effects, ferocity and unnatural hate. A fierce feud had long existed between two brothers, named John Paul Evans and Robert M. Evans, members of an old and well known family of this city. Their grandfather laid out the town of Evansville. They have made several attempts heretofore on each other's lives. Robert went to a ball at Mozart Hall yesterday evening with a lady. Over a hundred people were there. About midnight Paul came in intoxicated. He walked up to his brothrt, when Paul left the room, followed him as far as the inside door, where he fell, struck the wall and skinned his face. He was carried to a temporary couch, and lay insensible nearly three hours, when he also died. He was shot through the left lobe of the brain and in the right side, beneath the ribs. They both seemed to die of in ward bleeding. During the encounter a younger brother, Berry, shot three balls at Paul, one of which, it is said, hit him. Evansville (Ind.) Journal, Jan. 10.
A Scare. --Says the Louisville Courier, of the 28th ult.: Lincoln's troops at Evansville were frightened almost out of their wits the other day, at the report that they were about to be attacked by some Southerners. They sent a boat up the river to scout for them, and were in such a nervous condition that the whole regiment would have incontinently fled had one or two hundred Virginians happened to make their appearance amongst them.
tringham and his officers, and also by Gen. Butler, with whom I dined. I am now on board the steamer Georgiana, bound for Baltimore, on my return to my friends at Washington, where I hope to arrive safe and well. Another "St. Nicholas" Affair. We copy the following from the Memphis Appeal, of the 18th instant: On Thursday morning the 14th instant, while the stern-wheel steamer Equality, which is owned by the Lincoln Government, and used as a river patrol between Cairo and Evansville, on the Ohio river, was lying at the mouth of Mayfield creek, at the head of Island No.1, about three miles below Bird's Point, taking on board marketing for the troops at Cairo, a party of seven horsemen rode up to the boat and made a bargain with the Captain to convey them to Norfolk, on the Missouri shore, (where there are two of Lincoln's regiments encamped,) at the rate of a dollar each for themselves and horses. As soon as the boat pushed out, the pilot and other officers of the boa
Captures of beats. Paducah, Ky., Aug. 23 --The gun-boat Conestoga came here this morning with two hundred and fifty men. She captured the steamer W. F. Terry and took her to Cairo. Cairo, Aug. 23.--The steamer Terry, captured at Paducah, had thirty Minnie muskets and one field piece. [A formidable boat, in dead!] The gun-boat returned to Paducah. Cincinnati, Aug. 23.--The Tennessean have seized the Paducah and Evansville mail packet.
ng at the wharf at Paducah, by the Lincoln gun-boat Conestoga and an armed force of 250 Federal troops, and taken as a prize to Cairo. This fear was no doubt performed by way of retaliation for the recent capture of the steamers Equality and Cheeney by our men; but the captain and crew of the Terry were not to be so easily outdone, as the sequel proved. Accordingly, in the afternoon they managed by some means to seize the steamer Samuel Orr, which was a regular packet between Paducah and Evansville, and owned at the latter place. They succeeded in hurrying her up the Tennessee river to Fort Henry, as we learn, on the Kentucky and Tennessee line, where she was safely secured with a heavy cargo of groceries, consisting principally of coffee, bacon, whiskey, etc. Her cargo was to be paid for only on delivery at Paducah, a circumstance which saddles the loss on the shippers and not the consignees. The Orr is one of the fleetest packets on the river, and, with her contents, is a val

A dispatch from Philadelphia announces the arrest there of William S. Johnston, a nephew of the Confederate General of that name. His trunk contained a number of letters for the South, one of which speaks of the prisoner as "an officer in the Confederate army." The name of the steamer seized by the Confederates at Evansville, La., on the 22d, is the Samuel Orr. She was taken up the Tennessee river. Her cargo was valued at $20,000. It seems to be understood that a large camp of instruction will soon be formed in the immediate vicinity of Baltimore. Capt. Foote has been ordered to the command of the United States naval forces upon the Western waters — on the Mississippi, Missouri and Ohio. Twenty-three teamsters revolted and struck for higher wages at Cairo, and went to St. Louis for their pay. P
of it. Major General McClellan said that he had no doubt but that Kentucky, was and would remain loyal to the United States, and that since he had had command of the United States troops upon her border she had been repeatedly urged to put forces upon the border of Kentucky but being desirous of avoiding all cause of an irritating nation, he has invariably declined to do so, and had removed troops from her border that had been put there before he took command, instancing the city of Evansville, Indiana. In the above conversation, Major General McClellan impressed me with his open, frank and clear manner. In this interview, it is due to Major General McClellan to say, that I did not understand him to pledge his Government to this line of policy, but to state his own line of policy as the commander of the United States forces, it left untrammeled by instructions from his Government. It is also due to General Buckner that I should say he ruled implicitly upon the word of Maj
