He captured Mount Sterling, Paris, Cynthiana, and Williamstown, almost without resistance; and burnt railway trains, stations, and bridges, tore up tracks, and plundered without fear, for the troops in the path of his desolation were too few or feeble to check him. His men were divided into raiding parties, and one of these, three hundred strong, led by Colonel Gilt midnight, burned the railway station there and other property, and then hurried toward Frankfort. At the same time another portion of his followers set fire to Cynthiana, but near there Burbridge struck them an awfully shattering blow while they were breakfasting. That blow killed or wounded three hundred of them, while four hun

a band, who clutched a large amount of hospital stores; and, being piloted across by some Indiana traitors, captured a hospital also at Newburg, Ind., and paroled its helpless inmates. Col. John Morgan likewise captured July 2. Cynthiana, in north-eastern Kentucky; but was run off directly by a superior cavalry force under Gen. Green Clay Smith. Morgan claims in his report to have captured and paroled 1,200 Union soldiers during this raid, with a total loss of but 90 of his men. Large quantn's. Smith set forward directly Sept. 1. for Lexington, which he entered in triumph three days afterward, amid the frantic acclamations of the numerous Rebel sympathizers of that intensely pro-Slavery region. He moved on through Paris to Cynthiana, within striking distance of either Cincinnati or Louisville, which seemed for a few days to lie at his mercy; though considerable numbers, mainly of militia and very green volunteers, had been hastily gathered for the defense of the former, an

The most amazing feature of this raid was the capture of Gen. Hobson, w continue his career. Part of his force entered Lexington at 2 next morning, burned the railroad depot, and left, heading for Frankfort and Georgetown. Part of Cynthiana was burned by another detachment. But, near that place, Burbridge fell June 12. on the Rebel raiders while at breakfast; killing and wounding 300 of them, ca

A rebel arrested by two young ladies.--A Cynthiana (Ky.) correspondent of the Cincinnati Commercial says that the daughter and niece of Colonel H----, concluded, recently, they would have a little fun, and to carry out their plan, dressed themselves in men's apparel, procured an old shot gun, and proceeded to the field where the Colonel was at work. One of the girls, shot gun in hand, took her position a few paces off, while the other stepped up and laid her hand on him and said: By the authority and in the name of the United States Army, I arrest you as guilty of treason. The Colonel submitted without resistance, but said: Gentlemen, in the name of God, what have I done? The reply was that he would learn that, and have all things satisfactorily explained at Camp Chase, which caused the Colonel to turn very white; and they all walked to the house, where the children were all posted in the matter, and got into a titter, which caused a loud burst of laughter from all hands except

arrest and imprisonment at Camp Chase in October, 1861, has been noticed, was released on his parole of honor about the first of November, to attend the burial of his wife, who had been long in a declining state of health. Instead of reporting himself at Camp Chase, upon the expiration of his parole, he made his way to Tennessee, and in the Memphis Avalanche of the fifteenth he publishes a letter in which he depicts the great wrongs to which he has been subjected, and concludes as follows: This much, Messrs. Editors, I have deemed proper to say for myself. I do not whine nor ask the sympathies of any one. I am loose from Yankee despotism, and with my musket in one hand and the black flag of extermination to the foe in the other, I intend to avenge my own and my country's wrongs; and, if thoughts of a murdered wife and home made desolate, do not nerve my arm to strength and execution, I should be an ignoble son of Kentucky.
