two white men named Waters, and a mulatto named Wilson, had been hurrahing for Lincoln, and otherwise acting in a manner deemed exceptionable. A gentleman, named Rouse, told them that if they were in favor of Lincoln and the Abolitionists, they had better go North. One of the Waterses said he would if he had the means. Rouse toRouse told him he would subscribe five dollars to help him off, whereupon the whole party made an attack upon him with deadly weapons. Hearing of this outrage upon Mr. Rouse, a meeting was held on Saturday, a jury impaneled, which found the Waters men and Wilson guilty, whipped them and shaved their heads.

The Defat in Kentucky --Let it Rouse the South from its Lethargy. The defeat which we have sustained in Kentucky is a misfortune to be deplored; but which may be repaired, and, indeed, improved to our advantage. The particulars of the battle are as yet too meagre to warrant a safe conclusion as to its causes. It seems that our army, under command of Major-General Crittenden, attended by Brigadier-General Zollicoffer, marched forth from its entrenchments and attacked the enemy fortified in a strong position on the other side of a stream of water. The fight seems to have been severe for some time, the enemy acknowledging seventy-five killed in a single one of his regiments. But at an evil moment General Zollicoffer was shot down, and then our forces lost all confidence, fell into disorder, and fled. It is quite plain that they relied upon General Zollicoffer in the fight, and that when he fell, they would put no trust in his superior in command, General Crittenden, and g

the destruction of the bridges on some of the roads, and the occupation of others in transporting Government freight, only a portion of the salt has reached Star-burg. On its arrival there he following telegraphic correspondence editor place: Steeping, Nov. 28. C. B. Rouss — There are 100 aks of salt here of yours, and I am offer one thousand dollars for it. Answer. Jr Fleming. Winchester, November. 28. Jno Fleming: Ten thousand dollars would not buy it. Col. Rouse. On the arrival of the salt at Winchester, and before it was unloaded from the wagon, Mr. R. was offered fourteen dollars sack, for the lot; but he refused the balt on the ground that he had purchase for the purpose of accommodation, not upon nation. The entire lot of salt was dispose of at five dollars per sack, no purchaser being allowed more than one sack Mr. Roun has the proud consolation of knowing that in refusing a large pecuniary gain, he is added to the comfort and health of
their last great death struggle for the expiring liberties of their country. We must fight with the spirit that animated our fathers in the hour of battle — the spirit that reused to deeds of daring the soul of Marion, Sumpter, Davie, and Caswell, and their half-armed, half-fed, half clad, but iron-clad, unconquerable followers, who are buried beneath the soil of the South, and whose honored graves God forbid you should ever permit to be desecrated by the tread of a victorious invader! Rouse yourselves, then, to the emergency of this great crisis, and you will be able to drive back the Goths and Vandals of the North. The war they wage against you is a war for rapine — for plunder — for their own aggrandizement and your degradation — for domination to themselves and subjugation to you.--Already have they proclaimed by their legislation that confiscation, attainder, deprivation of the rights of suffrage, the doom and the mark of the traitor and the slave, are to be the share of
The Daily Dispatch: August 30, 1862., [Electronic resource], Capture of a Railroad train between Winchester and Harper's Ferry. (search)
Capture of a Railroad train between Winchester and Harper's Ferry. On Wednesday week Capt. Baylor's company of cavalry, under the command of Lieut. Rouse, was ordered from camp, at Harrisonburg, to Mount Jackson, in Shenandoah county, for the purpose of performing picket duty at that point. Leaving a sufficient picket force for the post under be command of a Sergeant, the balance of the company, thirty men, under Lieut. Rouse and Baylor, proceeded down the Valley road. Thursday night they stayed at Woodstock, and at noon the nent day they left that place and went down as far as Newtown, eight miles from Winchester, which they reached about 10 o'clon the direction of Winchester. The prisoners captured on the train were placed under Lieut. Roland and thirteen men, whilst the remaining seventeen, under Lieut. Rouse and Baylor, proceeded to Smithfield, in Jefferson county, 15 miles below Winchester. Within half a mile of the town they captured the Yankee pickets, who mist

The majority of the European States have representatives there. The kingdom forms four insular provinces, peopled by 70,000 inhabitants. The oldest sovereign in Europe is still the King of Wurtemburg. 80 years of age, and the youngest the Prince of Rouse-Greiz, who is 16½ years old. The sovereign who has reigned the longest is the Duke of Saxe Mainingon, who came to the throne 59 years age, while the most recent is the Sultan. The work also gives a list of the different Orders, 134 in number of which six are for women. The State possessing most is Bavaria, which has 11; then in and Austria, which have 10, Russia 8, and Fingal and Sweden 6. The Italian Revolution addressed six orders in Naples, one in Modens in Parma, and five in Tuscany.
sted parties in exchange for that of Palm Oil. The bet was made at Man head. The word reindeer is ordinarily spelt with an "e," and Mr. Ten Broeck bet a hundred to one that it is so spelt, and the bet was taken by Captain Stewart, clogged with the condition that it should be decided by "Johnson," which is perhaps the only dictionary in common use which states "raindeer" to be the proper spelling. It was charged that the bet was a "bubble" made up between Colonel Burnaby and Captain Stewart; and it appears from the correspondence that the Hon. Mr. Lawley testified in writing that "Captain Stewart, in the presence of Mrs. Lawley and himself, had owned to having discussed the spelling of the word reindeer with Colonel Burnaby before the betting commenced, and that they made a 'double' bet on the subject." Subsequently, however, this testimony was withdrawn, Mr. Lawley asserting that it was given under a misunderstanding of the case, and Admiral Rouse apologized to Colonel Burnaby.
