ad leading to the West, and of forming the left wing of the grand army of invasion in Kentucky. Irrespectively of the design upon the railroad, the movement was an important part of the invasion; and, irrespectively of the invasion, the movement was of value as threatening the railroad. Independently, besides, of both these features, the movement was important as affording countenance to the formidable disaffection in East Tennessee. The temporary and accidental success of Schœpff at Somerset has taken the enemy by surprise. They were expecting no victory in that quarter, and their elation at the unexpected and unusual news exceeds all bounds. Forth with is Schœpff confirmed as a Brigadier General, and the fertile invention of the Yankee is excessively busy in bringing out fictitious instances of gallantry and prowess, alleged to have occurred on the banks of Mill Creek. From small dimensions, the victory grows daily into greater proportions. It has already been magnified in
Renegade Southerners. The Federal press announce that one of the successful Federal Generals at Somerset, Thomas, is a Virginian, and the other, Schœpff, a foreigner, who came to this country as a porter, and has had the good luck to rise to his present position. So far as Thomas is concerned, if he be a Virginia, he is not the only renegade from this Commonwealth who has stained his hands in the blood of her children, but we marvel that the Yankees should take pride in having such alefilement of their own homes, with the single exception of Benedict Arnold, who was a prodigy of virtue in comparison with these Southern traitors. As for the foreign General, with the unpronounceable name, who was associated with Thomas at Somerset, and who is said to have risen from the position of porter to that of General, we consider it very doubtful whether any such exchange of avocations can be properly designated as promotion. An honest German porter at a hotel is a much more respe
ce of Paris, but thus far they have utterly refused to obey the order. It is true that we are constantly told that Logwood's cavalry and other forces are in the rear of the Federal, and that Gen. Cheatham, with a large force, is harassing their rear. Still we believe no such reports here. On the contrary, we are disposed to believe that the Federal are in such large force that they will find but little to impede them, except at Fort Henry; and that in a few days, unless a large force is sent to meet them, they will find their way up the Tennessee river to the railroad, and take the bridge. Federal outrages in Tennessee. The Knoxville Register says that the late Federal victory at Somerset has stimulated the enemy to commit the most desperate outrages in East Tennessee. Several horrid murders have already been perpetrated in Anderson county. The tory population of Green county is also reported to be again threatening the Southern men, and many evil results are expected.
