ection through Big Creek Gap. We learn from a reliable source that our cavalry scouts were, day before yesterday, thirty miles beyond the Kentucky line, and that only squads of the enemy (and these were driven in) were seen upon the road ascending the other side of the mountain. Large shipment of wool. Gen. Jas. A. Mabry, of Knoxville, Tennessee, has received a dispatch from an agent he has in Texas, to the effect that he has purchased for him 100,000 pounds of wool. It is the intention of the General to have this wool converted into cassimere, making more than 100,000 yards. All of this, he intends to have manufactured into clothing at Knoxville. To be Disbanded. The Nashville Union says reliable information has reached it that on the 4th inst. Gen. Johnston issued orders to disband the Tennessee troops now organizing under the recent call of the Governor of Tennessee. The only intelligent explanation for this step is the want of arms to place in their hands.

-Union men Rejoicing. [Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Tazewell C. H. Va. Nov. 11, 1861 We have just learned, through our dispatch bearer, M. L. Comann, some very exciting and interesting news from the Sandy country. You are aware that our forces in that section were under the command of Col. John Williams, and that he had evacuated Prestonsburg, and taken a stand some few miles this side. (This information I communicated to you in my last epistle.) On last Thursday, the 7th, our forces fell back from their position to a place called Gauley Bridge, a new name recently given to a little creek or ravine called Marrow-bone, some 16 miles from Pikesville, the county seat of Pike county. At this point, a little deep stream empties into the Louisa Fork of Sandy. A bridge of some length crosses this stream. Here our forces determined to give the enemy a chance to show their bravery. But before they advanced very far, our men fell back to Pikesville. On arriving at
The fight at Santa Rosa — interesting letter from a surgeon. The following letter, from a surgeon, who present in the fight at Santa Rosa, written to his father in North Carolina, appeared in the Petersburg Express of Monday: Camp Gladden, Fla., October 26, 1861. You will see, from the heading of my letter, that we are again in camp. We left the Navy-Yard, I think, on the 8th, (the day previous to our expedition against Santa Rosa) and are once more living in the woods. Our winter quarters are now being built, and we hope in about a month, to exchange our tent for shanties. You would, I presume, like to hear a direct account of the Santa Rosa fight. I will give you the best I can, althoug I am so much provoked and disgusted with the different newspaper statements I have seen, that I have almost resolved never to speak of it, all the credit being given to a few volunteers, in whose praise every little picayune newspaper writer in the South is now squibbing, whi
The bridge Burners — the Federal loss at Fort Royal--Gen. Lee, &c. Augusta, Nov. 12. --The Savannah Republican, of this morning, states that it has been informed by a gentleman from the interior that the bridges over Chickamoga Creek were burned by discharged hands, and not by the Unionists. A negro who escaped from Hilton Head, says that he heard some of the Federal officers say that their loss at the battle of Port Royal was fifty killed. The Republican publishes an extract of a letter dated at St. Simons Island on the 9th inst., which says that one Federal vessel passed on the day previous, and three more on that day bound South. They had also passed Fernandina. Gen. Lee is at present in Savannah. There is nothing positively known of the movements of the Yankees.
ities of the people as another,) the speculator asked at what price the salt could be had. "Our customers, sir, can have it at $5 per sack. You can have it at $25 per sack. Merchants Deserting Savannah. The Savannah Republican of the 9th inst., records the following instance of the existence in that community of men whom it would be better for the credit of every community in the South if they had never come among us. The comments of the Republican are just, and, if anything, too milyed men of the county, yet so great and well founded is the opposition of the people to the policy of forcing property to sale under execution for debt that not a single bid was made upon it. Patriotic. The Charleston Mercury, of the 9th instant, records the following instance of the patriotic promptitude with which the citizens of Charleston responded to the demands of their country: Captain Hudson Lee, Assistant Quartermaster at this place, yesterday made a call upon the citiz
Late Southern news. the Bombardment of port Royal--Pubilc meeting in Lynchburg — an improved battering ram, &c. From our Southern exchanges we make up the following summary of news: The Bombardment of port Royal. The Charleston Courier, of the 11th inst., came to us last night with a full description of the scenes of the fight, the number and calibre of the guns mounted on Fort Walker, &c., which, though interesting, are too long for publication this morning. Accounts from eye-witnesses, and others who participated at Fort Walker, in the late terrible and unequal combat with a formidable expedition carrying over 400 guns, which we copy from the Courier, enable us to present the following summary: Commencement of the action. The enemy's fleet, consisting of about thirty-six steamers, besides transports, on Thursday morning, about quarter past eight, commenced moving slowly towards the batteries, in line of battle. The long roll was immediately beat, an
ave left their State and homes to join the Southern army, and are entitled to a share of the contributions and comforts that are now being supplied by our liberal and kind-hearted Southern men, few save a greater claim than the men of Kemper's Artillery. They are composed chiefly of the roughs of Alexandria; poor men, of ruble means, but strong nerve. They were at Vienna when Gen. Schenck and his Ohio troops were stopped in their railroad excursion by the shots of Kemper's Artillery.--They were at the battles of Bull Run and Manassas. Kemper's Artillery claim to have shot the first gun on the 18th and the last on the 21st, and at least 300 Yankees are said to have fallen by the hands of the 84 men of this company alone. The kind ladies of Warrenton have prepared a suit of clothes each, for these brave men, but there are many other things required by them — woollen socks, blankets, and other comforts which we are sure will be thought of by those who have taken this matter in hand.
July 21st (search for this): article 2
low the whole South at a single mouthful with as much audacity of statement and minuteness of detail as if every word that he uttered was Gospel truth. The fact that all that he says now is but a rehash of his "Grand Army" articles before the 21st of July does not abash him in the least. He now informs us that McClellan has been able any day since the 1st of September to overwhelm the South with his prodigious numbers, but has graciously postponed it till a period fast approaching the annihilaGenerals his masters in the art of war. If he did know, and had the numbers Bennett reports, why did he permit the erection to go on? The truth is, it has taken the "Grand Army" a long time to recover from the back-breaking knock down of the 21st of July; and if it is in force now in numbers and discipline, it has yet to obtain the confidence and manhood necessary to meet men who are prepared and willing to die rather than surrender. All the falsehoods that Bennett can manufacture will never
may likewise be dealt with as a traitor. For he oweth a temporary local allegiance founded on that share of protection he receiveth." These observations of Foster are sound law, and supported by sound reasoning. A foreigner who resides here, and who seeks to receive the benefit and protection of our Government and laws, ought to be punished as a traitor, if he betrays the Government which confides in and protects him. An act was passed by the Congress of the Confederate States in August last, and approved by the President on the 30th of that month, which I am required to give you specially in charge. It is entitled--(here the Judge read the preamble and first four sections of the Sequestration Act, in the 3d vols of Acts of Congress, page 57.) The sections of the act which I have thought it proper to read to you, require very little comment. It is only proper to say a word or two to you in reference to alien enemies. The very learned and highly distinguished ge
