GENERAL FOBREflT.
As a alight indication of the esteem in which
mony rebel general officers aro how held by their
follow-citizena whom they so long and so cruelly
deluded, it may interest the public to know that
Genoral Forrest cannot return to bin plantation
and old homo on the Mississippi River with safety
to himself, unless protected by Federal bayonets.
Forrest il one of the bravest men living, and should
be as little obnoxious to his neighbors as any offi
cer of the Confederacy, but tho facts are as stated.
He is at the present time endeavoring to lease his
land to a resigned Federal officer, because ho feels
Ids life would not bo safe a day among bis infuri
ated acquaintances and former associates. Doubt
Ices there are many similar cases.
Tire ___U?_ or wniz.
Tho trial of Captain Wins, rebel commander of
the Andersonville prison, will commence to-morrow
before the military commission of which General
Underwood is President, and Colonel Chipman is
Judge Advocate. About ono hundred witnesses
have already been Bubpcenacd ; and by them'aB
many individual cases of cruelty are expected to be
proved against the accused. They will testify from
personal experience.

ty-four acres of public lands were taken up for*ac
tual settlement under tho Homestead law last

to the cash receipt? at that office for the samo pe
riod amounted io one thousand eight hundred and
two dollars. The Superintendent of tho Land Of
fice at Brownsville, Nebraska Territory, also re
ports eight thousand seven hundred and sixty-five
acres taken up under the Pre-emption law.
AI'PIJCATIONS FOB PABDON.
Applications for pardon flow in steadily, but few
aro granted. The President evidently intends to
exereiso this function of his office loisurely and
with great care. As tho fact becomes known im
portunity will abate. Southern people should un
derstand that no amount of personal solicitation
will obtain a pardon hurriedly; neither is it within
the power of any combination of "pardon brokers"
or others to expedito their business in the least.
All must submit to delay. Some may never bo par
doned; those who are should accept it as a boon;
pono must demand it as a right.
/.FFAIEfl IN TEXAS.
Private letters received here from prominent
citizens of Texas state that very many of those
whb were intense secessionists are now equally as
'fervent and zealous for the Union. The largest
slaveholders express themselves reconciled to the
changed condition of affairs, and say that, well
regulated free labor will prove more profitable
than servile help, the war having irretrievably de
moralized the domestic institution. The crops
throughout Texas arc represented as good, and
the opinion prevails among the leading men that
, no lately rebellious State will more easily return to
its for mor-national relations than Texas.

five minutes past four o'clock. The race from Ports
mouth was a well contested fifty milcBrun. The Aga
menticuB made tho distance in five hours and ton
minutes, at a rate of nearly ten knots an hour. Tho
Dictator was a mile and a half behind her whon they
arrived off Portland, and should have an allowance
of seventeen minutes for the stoppage of her ma
chinery on account of tho heating of tho crank
pin. At forty-five minutes past two o'clock the
Dictator hauled off and bore down tho bay for a
sail, so that the party might arrive at tho expect
ed hour?five o'clock. Tho Dictator is somowhat
foul, and the Agamenticuu clean. The vessels are
evidently fairly matched for speed. Tho officers
of each claim a decided superiority in sailing for
their respective vessels.

Letter from .?. D. B. Delfow.
Mr. J. D. B. DeBow, publisher of the famous
Review, has addressed the following lotter iu refer
ence to that publication, to the Winnaboro' 7W
Weekly News:
WiNNBBono', 8. C, August 14.
Editor News: A statement has been copied from
one of tho Northern newspapers, into several at
the South, to the effect that I was about to resume
tho publication of my Review " upon tho basis of
free labor."
It is my wish and intention to resume tho publi
cation of tho Review at somo point which shall bo
regarded most eligible, if I can control tho means
ana machinery to do so, and I very clearly perceive
what should bo the mission of tho work.
Regarding the issues of the post as dead, about
which a practical philosophy will not dispute, and
thoBo of tho present as living and potential, it
would bo tho part of the Review to accept tho situ
ation, and deduce from it all that cau be promotive
of tho boat in tereBts of tho wholo country.
Within the wide rango of discussion which the
future will opon, there is surely a field for labor.
The restoration of social and political order
throughout the South?the re-establishment of its
agricultural, manufacturing, and commercial in
dustry, prostrated by tho war.?tho reopening of
its internal communications,?the relations which
its several classes'of population shall sustain to
each other, and the mode in which they shall co
operate for tho best interest? of each and for tho
?rablic weal?-the establishment of schools snd col
Cgcs?these ore tho landmarks!
Each State and community will look to and be
aided by the experiences of others, and hence the,
importance of an organ for such information; and
wo may assuredly look very closely into what has
been done by other countries similarly situated
with regard to slavery and emancipation, adopting
what was wise and rejecting the rest, in their ac
tion.
I do not despair of a high degree of prosperity
in tho future throughout tho boundless fields of tho
South, and if our people will take hold with a brave
heart and noble purpose, in a few years all traces
of the recent calamitous times will be erased. If
wo oro met in tho samo spirit, which I have no
doubt hill be the case, by tho peoplo of the North,
tho nation will advance m a career of greatness for
which history hoe no parallel and oe moved by
ono heart, one spirit, and ono high and gonoroua
impulse.
Your obedient servant.
