Affairs in Nashville. --Advices from Nashville are to the 9th inst. In the city there are, all told, 16 Federal regiments, averaging some 400 men to the regiment. Gen. Negley is still in command. Much discontent prevails among the Yankee soldiers because of the scarcity of provisions. They have recently received but one ration of meat per week, and for some time they have received no pay. Many of them receive orders for clothing, boots, &c., upon the Commissary Department, which, as soon as they receive, they sell for anything they can get for them. Our informant bought a pair of fine boots from one of them for $2.50. Discipline, too, is lax with the soldiers. They are tolerated in many excesses, while citizens are treated with great severity. Since provisions have grown scarce in Nashville the houses of private citizens are daily entered and robbed of whatever can be found to eat, no matter how small the quantity. Andy Johnson is still in Nashville, but is much disco
Third company of Howitzers. --In the artillery dual preceding the Yankee occupation of Charlestown, on the 16th inst., Capt. Benj. H. Smith, Jr., of the third company Richmond Howitzers, lost a leg, and fell into the hands of the enemy. Lieut. Henry C. Carter, of the same company, was wounded in the breast, and private R. B. Brown, a gallant soldier, was killed. This we learn from a letter written by a member of the company, in which no further casualties are reported.
From the North. We continue our extracts from Northern papers of the 18th inst.: Wholesale Desertion of Federal paroled prisoners. Major General Wallace was ordered to Columbus to organize the paroled prisoners already there, and those hereafter to be sent there, for a campaign against the Indians. The General, upon his arrival at Columbus, found the greatest confusion existing. On his first visit to Camp Chase he gathered together the paroled prisoners, numbering about 4,000 men, and addressed them at length upon the object of his mission. The results of his operations there, so far, are detailed by the Cincinnati Enquirer, of Monday, which says: The work of organization was at once commenced, and as it progressed the companies were marched from Camp Chase to Columbus, furnished with new clothing and paid off. The companies were then ordered to Camp Thomas where the new regiments were to encamp preparatory to leaving for the Indian territories. The men were not
Latest from Bragg's army. Mobile, Oct. 21. --A special dispatch to the Advertiser and Register, dated Holly Springs, yesterday, says: The enemy in front of Corinth yesterday made a reconnaissance to our lines under a flag of truce. The pretext was to see about the pretended ill treatment of their prisoners in our hands, and remonstrate against the guerrilla system.--There is nothing reliable regarding the reported evacuation of Corinth. Upwards of 500 prisoner, taken at Corinth, arrived at Jackson to day. Several hundred of our wounded are at Corinth, where they are well treated. The Federal regard the loss on each side as equal.
Proceedings in the Courts. Mayor's Court, October 21. --John Miller, a man with curly hair, moustache and imperial, and subdued, meek look, was arraigned for committing a violent asssult on Mary Wolff, living in Jail Alley. The woman being disabled by the attack of Miller, which consisted of a knock down, stamping, "c., was unable to appear. The case was continued. Cornelius, slave of Wm. Hoe, of King George county, came to town with his master to sell some wheat, and got lost. He was a little nigger, and was arraigned as runaway or lost. The latter appeared to be the most probable, and he was sent to jail to await the call of his master, who had advertised for him as a lost darkey. The subject was both small and young. Geo. Washington, a venerable Ethiopian, slave of Maria Bond, was committed for going at large. Jas. McCabe, alias Johnson, arrested as one of the murderers of Kelley and Downes on the 9th of last. May, on 17th street, was brought up for e
