Memphis. --The Appeal (published at Grenada, Miss.,) publishes an interesting letter from a lady, dated Memphis, June 10. We make an extract: Our town is full of all sorts of rumors, and we don't known what to believe. The stores are nearly all closed, the streets empty and quiet as on Sunday; no drays, no carriages, save now and then a lonely one going solemnly by as if to a funeral procession. The Yankees thus far are on very good behavior Col. Fitch, it is hoped, is not such a beast as Butler. So far as I can learn, not a scrap of a Federal flag has yet been hung out save by the invaders them selves, and not a single instance of a Memphian reading the enemy cordially, if I may except that of my little three year old boy. Yesterday he was standing on the side walk and a squad of Yankees passed by him. The little rascal rang in among them in most cordial manner shouted, at the top of his lungs, "Howdy, soldier! howdy, soldier! howdy, soldier!" shaking hands with half a
nd shelter in her house they would return and hang her to the first they came to Col. Lunday, living some nine miles this side of Memphis, on the Horn Lake road, was served in a similar manner. In addition to destroying his stock, robbing his house, and stealing his negroes, they tore a fine breastom from the bosom of his wife, stripped his daughter of her ear and finger rings, and even tore a dress from her person. M' Clellen before the Sattles. A letter from Richmond to the Grenada (Miss.) Appeal, speaking of McClellan, says: Dr. Curtis, of Hanover, whose house was for some time occupied by McClellan as his headquarters, has come into the city since the retreat of the grand army. He speaks of the Young Napoleon as an intelligent and agreeable gentleman, but as the most dejected and unhappy man he has ever seen. The cares and difficulties of the more than herculean labor he assumed of reducing Richmond, had made him appear prematurely old. Frequently, said the di
Horrible Murder. --A Miss Vaughn, of De Soto county, was outraged a few days since by a negro and afterwards murdered and thrown into Cold Water Creek. After her body was found, the negro was traced to Memphis, when he was demanded of the Federal authorities. Incredible as it may seem, they refused to deliver him up. In reply, they coolly said the negro came to them seeking protection, and he should have it. Thus is a crime of the most horrible character permitted to go unpunished, and other criminals in the same position assured they can outrage with impunity.--Grenada (Miss.) Appeal.
Another Horrible murder by Federal troops. The Grenada (Miss.) Appeal publishes a tale of horror, from the lips of the widow of the murdered man, W. H. White, a resident of De Soto county, Miss., who was slain on the 5th instant by a company of Federal (Dutch) cavalry. It says: On Thursday, the 4th, some Federal cavalry had passed down from Memphis to Hernando, and about twenty of them returned on Friday, reaching the widow White's about 1 o'clock P. M. They stopped for water, when they were informed that there was a well just on the roadside about half a mile further on. They proceeded, and when about half way to the well were fired on by some of our partisan rangers. The Lieutenant commanding the company and some four or five others were killed, while the rest of the Federals fled in all directions. Mr. White was not at home at the time, and had never belonged to any military organization, though he was making arrangements to join a company of rangers in a few days.
The issue of Treasury notes. --The Richmond correspondent of the Grenada (Miss.) Appeal sends that paper the following items: By the way, I have just heard two facts mentioned, which would seem to show that no pause in the utterance of Treasury notes is contemplated by that officer. A gentleman tells me that a contract is pending between the Government and the Richmond Paper Mill for a hundred and fifty thousand dollars' worth of bank note paper, on which to print new fives, tens, fifties, and one hundreds; and I am informed that fifty new female clerks, in addition to one hundred already employed by the Treasury Department, are about to be appointed, to number, sign, register, divide, and clip the small notes, (the ones and twos,) of which myriads almost are already in circulation. It may not be generally known, but it is a fact that will be interesting to some readers, that the $1 and $2 bills of the Confederate States--those which are embellished with badly engrave
Gen. Van-Dorn. --Rare Magnanimity.--The following extract from an order recently issued by Maj.-Gen. Van-Dorn, is taken from the Grenada (Miss.) Appeal: Headq'rs army of West Tennessee,Holly Springs, Oct. 17, 1862. Special Order, No. 84. III. The appointments of Generals Cabell, Philer, and Armstrong, to the command of brigades, not having been confirmed, these officers are necessarily relieved. The General commanding thanks these gentlemen for their skillful services and conspicuous gallantry on the battle- field of Corinth, and expresses his sorrow at being compelled to relieve them of their commands at this time, when the smoke of battle has barely unveiled that bloody to them glorious field. Not theirs, nor the troops who so nobly fought the battle of Corinth, the fault of failure — that misfortune is his. By order of Gen.Van-Dorn. M. M> Kimmel, A. A. G. It will be seen by the foregoing order, that Gen. Van-Dorn takes upon himself all the responsibility f
on to bail. The only crime which the accused had committed was merely the avowal, before the occupation of the city by Yankee, of a preference for the Southern Confederacy. Subsequently other charges, such as heading or promoting a conspiracy, &c., were trumped up, but no proof had been advanced. How the case terminated the report does not say, but judging from the seal of the prosecuting attorney, not, we imagine, to the benefit of the prisoner. From a New Orleans letter in the Grenada (Miss.) Appeal, we take the following gossip of interest: When Banks first came here with his great expedition, that highly intellectual class, the Northern merchants, expected that Vicksburg would fall, and the navigation of the Mississippi would be certainly opened. Acting upon this anticipation, they have shipped here enormously. The consequence is, the market is so glutted with everything that goods are ten per cent, lower than in New York, and is so fluctuating that often the diffe
en with supplies for the use of the army. According to the correspondent of the New York Times, several batterie have already been planted below Harrison's Landing, on the opposite side of the river, one of which fired into the mail-boat Juniata, killed two men on board and wounded six, and so damaged the vessel that she was obliged to be run ashore to avoid being sunk. A telegram from Cairo furnishes some particulars in regard to the condition of affairs in the Southwest. The Grenada (Mississippi) Appeal is quoted as stating that a large number of Confederate troops have left Tupelo for Water Valley, some forty miles from Holly Springs. The division commanded by Gen. J. C. Breckinridge is said to have gone to Vicksburg and a considerable force of Mississippi troops to Richmond. Only about three thousand Confederates are reported as remaining at Grenada, from which place nearly all the Government stores had been removed. General Hindman has issued a proclamation addresse

on; but this difficulty was soon overcome — a vessel was purchased, sent to the Crimea, and the cannon obtained and presented to the Confederacy. The Nashville which brought the cargo was chased, and hemmed in by eight Federal gunboats, the chase lasting seventeen hours. She came across a schooner loaded with coal, bought the schooner and her cargo, and came into port with only one ton left. She was not seen to enter when she did. Capture of a Federal Railroad train. The Grenada (Miss.) Appeal, of the 2d, gives the particulars of the capture and destruction of the Federal railroad train, near Germantown, Tenn., a few days since. By an injury to the road, the train, composed of one passenger car and four cars loaded with sutler's stores, was thrown from the track, and consequently detained. The wreck was then surrounded by Col Jackson's cavalry, who captured the steres, cars etc., which were destroyed. Seventy-three prisoners were taken — among them Col. Kinney, of o
