The Natchez Courier states that on Saturday
last one of the enemy's fleet landed at Deed
bs&'s Bend, Adaaaa eoonty, and robbed tho
stere aad dwelliag of Mr. L Roath, taking his
entire stock ef gocds, fornitore, provisions, bed-
dmg, clothing, etc.; and before leaving they set
fire to his house in four places. They then pro-
eeeeed to the bouse of Mr. Wm. JleElrey, an
old bmh and respeeted cirirso, and robbed him
of his previsions, furniture and aosey and rc
tarned to their boats with their beoty. They
also took with them two negroes belonging to
the Cerra Gorda plantation. This is the sort of
"protection" the Vandals give us wherever we
perait then to obtain a footing.
In response to the query, " why k it that the
South stands up sturdily against the superior re
Wieroes and numbers of the loyal section of the
UnieoT" the Cincinnati Commercial says that
"the South has made the war a business- The
Tebeltfees people have lost sight of everything
hut war, and bending all of their energies to it,
have aeeooiplkhed wonders."
The Commercial urges the people of the North
to sake war their "business." Bat Us appeals
vriU have so effect They are not fighting- for,
but to suppress freedom. Oar people are unani
BMosty actuated by a determination to be free.
The leaders of the North are engaged in a cru
sade against liberty. The people are not per-
eomHv interested, and will not make war their
"maeess" until they can see more dollars in
iolbMnaK Ah nrenpKttea tUn au be fodnd in
tbtir workshops. Their grovelling spirits would
calculate to a fracttoc the pecuniary cliesces in
pteineace to being actuated by any other mo

' operation alone.
"NOW BY ST. PAVli TITS WORK

The news which we publish to-day from East
Tenaesseo and the North cannot fail to inspiro
courage and confidence in every heart. Every
thing in that fanatical and benightod soction of
the country indicates a general and speedy col
lapse. Tho war spirit is evidently waning to
suoh an extent as to become alarming to the ene
my, white the anti-war feeling is beginning to
develop iteelf in unmistakable significance.
The reports brought from the North by our
returned prisoners are- most cheering. Our
northern cousins despair of our conquest and
subjugation, and wage war upon us now only
from & sense of pride and a feeling of revenge.
Bnt if our people are true to themselves, their
pride will soqa be humbled and their revenge
will prove anything but sweet to them. The
war cannot be prolonged a great while longer,
when those who wage it are moved and prompt
ed by no higher considerations and motives than
these. Were the Northern Puritanical Yankees
as pious and wise as they are pompons, proud
end hypocritical, they would profit by the un
erring admonitions of scripture, which teaches
us that "pride goetfa before a fall" and that
"vengeance k mine, saith the Lord." But for
getting God, as Aey seem to have done, as well
as the teachings of the moral code, they bid fair,
very soon, to fall victims to their own bad pas-
sions. JJiscortt ana coniasten, aouDi ana au
may have seised upon them. The reaction
against the war has commenced, end it cannot
be cheeked. The rebound, in fact, promises to
be even greater than the momentum, and hope is
rapidly giving way to despair.
Thk despondency wiH be increased when they
shall have hoard from their late reverses in East
Tennessee, which we hope soon to see followed
up by similar reverses in Middle Tennessee and
Kentucky. The indications in these quarters
are promising in the highest degree, and we in
dulge the hope that our brilliant success at Cum
berland Gap wmI serve as a stimulus to our
troops and commanding generals everywhere
T)aah and en.rgy should characterise our armies
in future. Nothing conduces so much to the
revival of the despondency and drooping hopes
of our people, and nothing serves so well to
spread dismay in the ranks of the enemy as
quick movements, unexpected attacks and on
ward advances. Every little success inspires
confidence, and soldiers enter tha service with
more zsal and enthusiasm when they know
that work is to be carried on before them and
not in their rear. The beet recruiting officer in
the army is he who will announce that his des
tination is Louisville and the Ohio river. Let
such of our commanding generals as are in
want of recruits make this announcement, and
soldiers will spring up like the men. of Cadmus
from the sowing of the dragon's teeth.
And now too, is the time to push on the ball.
Encouraged by our late successes, as woll as by
the growing despondency and dismay in tho
North, let not the ardor of onr troops and the
zealous fcopet of the people be dampened by a
stand-still policy. Oar country has been cursed
locg enomh by the presence of the dastardly
aad hated ice. We are suffering him to remain
qukt'y in positions where he can rob ns of onr

country. Plow much longer shall he abuse our
patience and insult ns by his presence t Let the
manhood and chivalry of tho country answer

Correspondence of the Appeal)
ViCKsnuitG, August G, 18G2
iSinco tho departure of tho enemy, Vicksburg
has lost its attraction, and dull monotony weighs
liiio a heavy incubus upon tho camp. We also
look forward with pleasant anticipations to an
early day when wo will bo onco more thrown
forward into an active field of operations. There
is nothing so disagreoable to the soldior as in
action, nothing so unhoalthy.
The camp of the Yankees on tho other side
of.'tho river is very interesting, especially the
graveyards. A party of Mississippi officers
went over there a few days ago, and they tell
mo that they actually counted sic hundred and
ticenty grates adjacent to tho anchorages of the
upper and lower fkets. While we know that
tho mortality ameng the invaders was awful, we
had no idea that it was so fearful until the in-
contesiible evidence above quoted was givcin. I
have known one of tho officers for years, and
have always, regarded him a Christian gentle
man of undoubted veracity. This furnishes the
finishirigchaptor to tho long cataloguo of dis
asters tho Federal fleets met with while besieg
ing -Vicksburg. Those fleets laid biego to the
city seventy-cne days; tha number of ireiseli",
of all classes employed, was ninety-six, more
then one-half of which carried guns ; numbtr
of men 13,500, crews and infantry.
The total number of mon we lost during the
bombardment from gunshot wounds was fifteen,
and ono woman Mrs G .mble. Twelve were
killed on board tha Arkansas, two in our batte
ries and au orderly sergeant in the 45th Tennes
see, while his brigade was making a sally upon
mortar boats moored near the shore. We did not
have a single gun disabled by the enemy, and
oniy ono aismounteJ, ana that was by nor own
recoil. Oie hour's work set her all rfeht agaic.
Besides the great loss of life, the effort to take
Vicksburg has not cost tho Lincoln dynasty a
dollar less than twenty million. That magnifi
cent concern, however, cares but littlo for this
item. Governments moro enconamical would
certainly mako tho fact prominent in the argu
The streets of Vicksburg aro beginning to
present their former lively air. Tho refugees
are returning by every train, and opening their
stores and places ot business, luey ilo not
seem to apprehend a renewal of tho attack any
time scon. It will not bo moro than a month
before all damages sustained by houses in the
city will be repaired, and traces of the explosion
of shells difficult to find. If the Yankees sup
pose that tho people regret the defense made be
cause of injury sustained to their houses, .they
are most wofully deceived. Indeed, they ex
pected when they refused to surrender that tho
city would be burned, and that not a house
would be left standing. Tha sacrifice of the
last stick of timber, the last brick, and even the
ground upon which they stand, would have
been preferable to the presence of the detested
Yankees in the city. Is it not strargo that a
people will have tho effrontery to impose their
presenco whero they are so heartily loathed and
despked ? It is not unlike a mortal enemy ask
ing hospitality under your roof.
Our Mississippi volunteers have noticod with
regret that the press and correspondents of our
State claim for them the principal portion of tho
honor of successfully defending Viqksburg. It
3 a well known fact that Louisianians, Kcn-
tuckians and Tonucssaeans outnumbered ua two
or three to one, and that while occupying posls
of honor they always exhibited their prestine
courage and valor. We owe them a lasting
debt of gratitude, and none more siuceroly re
gret the just cause of their chagrin than the
Mississippi boys, their comrades. Although far
away from their homes they at all times acted
with as much zsal aud gallantry as if fighting
at thoir threshholds. Whilst claiming no thanks
for ourselves, wo hope that all praise will be
given to tho citizens of Vicksburg who first de
terrniccd not to yield, and our friends of other
States who nobly backed thorn in thoir resale-

upon tho day ot tho engagement at iomDktns

you, 1 moved my command, consisting ot ray
own regiment, tuo ueorgin regiment ot partisan
rangers, commanded by Col A. A. Hunt, and
Minor Gano s lexas squadron, to which was at
tached two companies of Tennessee cavalry, in
the direction of Glasgow, which place I reached
at 12 o clocK that night,
There wero but few troops In the town, who
fled at our approach, lho commissary stores,
clothing, etc., together with a large supply of
medical stores, lound m Uiasgow, were burned,
and the guns wore distributed among my com
mand about two hundred of which were un
armed whon I loft Knoxville,
From Glasgow I proceeded along the main
Lexington read to Barren river, halting for a
timo near Cave City my object being to induce
tho belief that I intended destroying the railroad
bridce between iJowlintr Ureen nnd Woodson-
yillo. I caused wires, connecting with a porta
ble battery that 1 carried mthine, to be attached
to tha telegraph lino near Ilorso Cave, and inter
cepted a nnmber of dispatches.
At Barren river I detached threo companies
under Capt. Jack Allen, to move forward rapidly
and destroy tbo Salt river bridge, that the troops
along tho lino of railroad might bo prevented
from returning to Louisville.
On tho following morning I moved on toward
Lebanon, distant thirty-five miles from Barren
river. At II o'clock at night I reached the
bridge over Rolling Fork, six miles from Leban
on. Tho enemy had received information of my
approach from their spies, and my advance
guard wa3 fired upon at the bridge. After a
short fight the force at the bridge was dispersed
place. I reached Paris at -1 o'clock, rsmained
there that night, and started toward Winchestor
next morning. As my command was filing out
of Paris, on the Winchester pike, I discovered
a largo forca of Federals coming toward the
town from tho direction of Lexington. They
immediately countermarched, supposing, no
doubt, that my intention was to get into the
rear. Tbis enabled me to bring off my entiro
command without molestation, with the excep
tion of two of my pickets who were probably
surprised I reached Winchester that d8y at 1-i
o'clock, and remained until 4 o'clock, when I
proceeded toward Richmond. At Winchester I
found n number of arms, which wero destroyed.
I arrived at Richmond at la o'clock that night,
and remained until the next afternoon, when I
proceeded to Crab Orchard. I had determined
to make a stand at Richmond, and await rein
forcements, as the whole people appeared ready
to rise and join me, bnt I received information
that largo bodies of cavalry under Gen. Clay
Smith, and O0I9. Woolford, Metealf, Mundy and
Wynkoop, were endeavoring to surround me at
this place. So I moved on to Crab Orchard.
There I attached my portable battery to the tele
graph leading from Stanford to Louisville, and
learned the exact position of the euemv's forces.
and directed my movements accordingly.
Leaving Crab Orchard at J 1 o'clock, I ar
rived at Somerset, distant twenty-eight miles, at
sundown- I took possession of the telecrranh.
and countermanded all tho previous orders that
has been given by Gen. Boyle to intercept me.
and remained in perfect security all night. I

from New York has made an arrangement by
which all the recruiting offices in the city cro to
bo broken up, and ono rendezvous formed. It
was also agreed that no bounties would ba paid
after tho 18th inst., and if tho quota was not
then filled up the draft would be immediately
resorted to. The old regiments from the State
aro.to be-fillcQ up first, and recruits are to bo al
lowed (o choose their regiments.
We aro hourly expecting good news from be
low. It is well known that Gen. Brockinridgo's
division left here ten days ago, for the purpose
of ro-capturing Baton Riwge, tho capital of
Looisiat a. He was joined at camp Moore by
tho brigade of Gen. Roggles. Tho expedition
left camp Moore last Wednesday, and should
have arrnod at Baton .Rouge about Sunday or
Monday. Tho distance to be marched by land
was sixty-two miles. It is thought that the
whole garrison would bo captured unlesi it stec-
daddltd before Gen. Breckinridge got there. It
is understood that the Arkensas will have a
hand in that fight
There is na good reason why New Orleans
might not be re-captured. Everybody kuow3
that the beastial Butler holds that city ofiCO-
000 inhabitants with no more than 3000 Dutch
troop3. The peoplo say that if a brigade of oho
or two thousand soldiers would appear before it,
they weuld ris8 up and slaughter Butter and his
entiro crew in ono half hour. Sj clcsoly are
theso unfortunate people watched end tyranized
ovor, that if three of them are round conversing
together, they ere instantly arrosted and thrown
into dungeons. They aro frecaied to madness
and only require a signal by a Confederate gen
oral to ply their riflaa from their windows.
The following chracferistic placard is posted
oa the door of Batler s headquarters
torming him that Col. Owens, with the 00th In
diana regiment, had been sent to his assistance :
so 1 at ouco dispatched a company of Texan
Rangers, under Maior Gano. to destroy the rail
road bridge on the Lebanon Branch, which he
successfully accomplished m timo to prevent the
arrival of tho troops. I burned two long build
ings mu or commissary stores, consisting ot up
wards of fivo bun Ired" sacks of coffae, and a
largo amount ol all other supplies iu bulk,
maiked for tha army at Cumbe land Gip. I also
destroyed a very largo amount of clothing,
boots, etc I burned tho hospital buildings,
wnicn appeared to have been recently erected
and fitted up, together with about thirty-five
wgons and fifty-three new ambulances. I found
in tho place a jlarge storo of medicines, five
thousand stand of arms with accoulrjmeuts, about
ttvo thousand sabres, and au immense quantity
of amunition, rhell, etc. I distributed the bwt
nrms among my command, and loaded one
wsgon with them to be given to the recruits that
i oxpected to join me. 1 also loaded one wagon
with ainunitiou. Tha remainder of ihe arms,
amunition, and tho hospital and medical stores,
while in Lebanon I ascertained from tele

torco which had been started from Lebanon
Junction to reinforce Lieutenant-Colonel John
son, had mat and driven back the force under
Capt Jack Allen, killingone of his men. and
preventing him from accomplishing the pur
pose for which ho had been detailed.
I proceeded from Labanon on the following
day through Springfield to Macksviile, at which
point I was attacked by home guards. Two
ot my men were takeu prisoners, and one se
verely wounded. I remained at Macksviile that

Richmond, July 31st, 1862. Sir:' On the
22i of this month a cartel for a general exchange
of prisoners of war was signed between Major
General. D. II. llill, in behalf of the Confede
rates, and Mejor-General John A. Dix, in behalf
ot the United states. tSy taa terms ot mat car
t-1 it is stipulated that alt prisoners ot war here
to.'ore tsken shall be discharged on parole till
exchanged. Scarcely had that cartel been
signed when the military authorities of the Uai
ted States commenced a practice, changing the
character of the war, from such as becomes cvil-
ized nations, into- campaign of indiscriminate
robbery and murder.
The general order issued by the Secretary of
War of the United States, in the city of Wash
ington, on the very day that the eartel was signed
in Virginia, direeta the military commanders of
the United States to take the private property
of our people for the convenience and nee of
their armies wit hen t compensation.
The general order issued by Major-General
trope, on the 234 of July, the day alter tbo sign
ing of the cartel, directs the murder of our peace
ful inhabitants as spies if found quietly tilling
toe tanus in his rear, or even outside ot ms lines,
and .one of ms bruradier-s'enerau. biamwehr
lias seized noon peaceful inhabitants, to be heM
as hostages, to the end that they nay he mar-
aerea in cold blood if any ot his soldiers are
Killed by some unknown persons, whom he des
ignates as "Bushwhackers,"
Under the state of facts, tbis government has
issued the enclosed general order recognizing
Gen. Pope and hia commissioned ofiL-ois to be
in the position which they have ehesoa for them
selves, that ot robbers and murderers, and not
that of public enemies, entitled, if captured, to
be considered m prisoners of war. We find
ourselves driven by our enemies, by steady pro-
towara a practice which we abhor, and
we are vainly striving to avoid. Some of
military authorities of the United States
seem to suppose that better success will attend a
savage war, m which no quarter is to be given,
and no age or sex to be spared, than has hitherto
been secured by such bostihti as are alone re
cognised to be lawful by civilized man in mo
dern times. For tha present we renounce our
right of retaliation cn the innocent, and shall
continue to treat private enlisted sobJfers ef Gea.
Pope's army as prisoner: of wr, but if, after
notice to the government at Washington of oar
canfining repreteive measures to the punishment
only of commissioned officers who are willing
participants in these crimes, these savage prac
tices are continued, we aha, I reluctantly be
forced to the last resort of accepting war on the
terms ehosea by our foes until the outraged
voice of a coannon humanity forces a respeet for
the recognised raiea of war. While th?se facts
would justify our refusal to execute the gener
ous eartel by which we have consented to liber
ate an execs of thousands of prisoners held by
the enemy, a saexed regard U plighted faith,
springing from the mere semblance of breaking
a promise prevents onr resort to this extremity,
nor do we desire to extend to any other forces of
the enemy the punishment merited alone by Gen.

to participate in the execution cf bis infamous

which lasted about an hour and a half, before
tho enemy wc-re driven into the town and com

twenty prisoners, including about (seventy home

eight of my men m killed and twenty-nine
wounded. Iho enemy's loss was ninety-four
killed and wounded, according to their owa ac
count, inoir excess in Killed and wounded is
remarkable, aa they fought as from behind stone
fences and fired at us from buildings as we
charged through the town. We captured n very
fine Im pounder brass pi.ece of artillery, together
with n largo number of small arms, and about
throe hundred government horses. Tho arms
and government stores wore burned, aud as
many of tho horses as wo conld bnag with us
were kept. I found a very large suniy of com
