Alarm about the Slavei in Georgia.
The Macon Telegraph of the 3Uth of

This is by fur a more important sulijeet

to a Sknhp. ok His IM'TY. A certain
Western Colonel in Major-l fen. (fi ant's
army, took advantage of a sick furlough
to canvass for a nomination to Congress.
On applying for an extension of his fur
lough, General tiraut wrote on the back
"If Colonel is abh to travel
over his district to electioneer for Con
gress, he is able to be with his regiment,
and he is hereby ordered to join it im
mediately or be dismissed from the ser
vice." Lawyers have a ludicrous habit of
identifying themselves with their clients
by speaking in the plural number. "leu

the Western circuit, "at the moment the
policeman says he saw us in the trap, 1
will prove that we were loc ked up in the
station-house, in a state of intoxication. "

The Grenada (Mis.) .fyywof the 'j:id
ol tseptcnitsr contains I ne- following
article. We icmiiih it at much for its t
absurdities as for anything else. The I
idea of " concentrating" the reU-1 army
in the Valley of the Mississippi is simp
ly ridiculous, as their Generals in order
to keep their soldiers alive are compelled
to scatter them over a wide area of ter
ritory to procure food. Equally amusing
is the statement that Biei.i.'s army ii
rctrenling slowly before 1nAm, when
every Isidy knows that the latter is using
every antifice to avoid an engagement
with the army of the North, w hich is press
ing upon dim. We earnestly hope that
IU i l l. may succeed in forcing the rebels
to do w hat they will not do if they can
retreat fast enough, and that is, to Jiohl.

The excursion of Gen. Morgan into
Kentucky six weeks ago is regarded only
as a recoiinoissance or feeler, and it will
be recollected that as soon ub that wary
oilicer liatl explored ttie way, ana return
ed in safety and triumph, (icncral Kirby
Smith's whole command, of which Mor
gan was a constituent part, advanced
along the track he had ex-plorcd. I5ul
(en. Smith s column is, itself, but a part
of a great movement. It is the vanguard
of Gen. Hragg'g army, tho main body of
wliicli keeps in immediate contact with
the retreating army of the North, under
tho leadership of line 11, who retreats
slowly before Bragg, while the hitter
cannot be a moment on' his guard in
presence ot so 6trong an adversary.
Ilosccrans couimaHds the extreme right
wing of the Yankee force on this side of
the Mississippi; that is to say, the pur
lion of the army nearest the river, w bile
I tice commands the adversary column
on our side. Ilosccrans is not a foe to he
tampered with; and hence it is, that the
greatest circumspection characterizes all
our movements in that quarter.
Further east we find a large Confcdc
rate force w atching a similar force o
Federals fort i lied iu the mountain gorges
ol Cumberland Gap. It is the popular
be I let that this federal force issut round
ed, and cannot extricate itself. They
may be starved into capitulation, but it
is not probable that they will be taken iu
any other manner.
In addition to these we have tho force
of Oeiierals Humphrey Marshall and
Floyd, both of w hich have so long been
in Southwestern Virginia, but who are
now understood tu be co-oprrat ing in the
