Florida Abandoned bf th Coitfrd
The Boston Journal publishes tho fol
lowing letter, found at Jacksonville, Flo
rida, by some of our froops, when they
took possession of that place. It will
be seen that the writer, notwithstanding
Florida has been entirely abandoned by
the Confederate Government, armrding
to his statement, still hugs tho fond de
lusion that the rebel causo will succeed,
and that Florida will again be linked to
tlifl Southern Confederacy by negotia
tion : . .
MuLiiEKitr Gkovk, March 7, 1 802.
Mr. Dkar Sistkr : Since the
attack and capture of Fernaudiua, the Con
federate Government has seen fit to abandon
East Florida, ana yesterday au order cams

all thu cunnou, arms, ammunition, stores,

night to do It before tho Federals get entire
powssioa of the State. Our government bus
signilied its inability to bold Florida, and
therefore the troops here have gone to us-i-t
in breaking the cordon from the Cumberland
riv-r, in Tennessee, to the Cuattsbotic rivei,
and there is still the additional uumb'-r if
(JO called for from thu State by lbs Gov-

over the bar. but we will fee them here a
soon as the wind changes. Tbe Tor.-n Coun

The Louisville Democrat, that slciling
and staunch Union paper, pays tho Union
fhis handsome compliment:
We staled, day before yesterday, that
the Tatr'ui had suspended. From fhe
same ofiico another new paper is now
issued, called tho Union. It is a Union
paper out and out, and will do good work
for tho holy cause. It says that ma
ny distressed parents secession have
thronged the capitol, earnestly interced
ing, with (lor. Johnson for their sons,
who have been misled; and then adds:
The improvement in the slato of the
public mind is most gratifying, aud will
bo hailed with rapture by every patriotic
heart. The work of restoration pro
gresses most checringly. Tho spell of
treason is broken, and tho demon of en
chantment lies powerless at the feet of
our country's genius."
The Uii'on is edited by that staunch
Union man, N. C. Mercer, formerly of
llopkinsville, Ky., the ready writer, the
wit, and the poet. We congratulate friend
Mercer on his new enterprise, and w ish
him unbounded success.
Stolen Plates Spurious Monk v.
We learned, Saturday, that tho old SlO
plates of the People a Bank of Kentucky
have been stolen, and one or more notes
issued from them were passed yesterday
at the counter of tho Bank of Louisville.
Theso bogus bills aro of tho red face
are dated December, 1800, payable at the
Branch at Bowling Green, and arc signed
II. P. Pendleton, Tresidcnt, J. K. Tillts,
Cashier: boirus names of course. There
never was but one branch, and that was
located at Hartford tho principal bank,
and not a branch, being at Bowling
Green. How or when theso plates were
stolen, unless during the timo that Buck
ner occupied tlui town, nobody cantcll.
Let the public be watchful. Tho bank
is now located in this city, but previous
to its removal Gnder was President, and

Col, Thomas V. Sweeny, ,
The gallant Col. Thomas W. Strccny,
who, from news just received, has again
been wounded in the recent great battle
at Pittsburg in the defense of his coun
try's flag and in the maintenance of ifs
laws, was born in Ireland, and came to
this country with his parents when about
ten 3'cars of age. On the passage ncrosa
IDC Atlantic lie W9 WaHlinrl nyorl-j."
but in tho providence of God was saved.
At an early age he went to Patterson, N.
J., where he was apprenticed to the
printing business. He afterwards came
to this city, and was emraared as a com
positor till the war with Mexico was do-
larcd. He was among the first to vol
unteer in the servico of his adopted
country in tho capacity of Second Lieu
tenant, lie was at tbe stornun of Vera
ru., and was twice wounded in the
battlo at the taking of the City of Mex
ico, losing his right arm. On Col. Swee
ny s return to this city ho received the
commission ot becond Lieutenant, 2d
h'giment U. S. Infantrtf, and was soon
ordered to California, where ho performed
many arduous duties, from which he
never faltered; among the first of which
was theaking a detachment of recruits
in a state 01 disorganization across the
esert, from San Diego lo the inferior,
without losing a man. He was after
ward assigned o Fort Yuma, on -the Col
orado, with a command of ten men ; and
chut olT for ten months from all commu
nication with tho settlements, and sur
rounded by a large band of liosf ile In-
lians, but for his watchfulness and in-
lefatigablo intrepidity, woufd have been
massacred before being relieved. From
California he, with'a portion of his regi
ment, was ordered to Fort Pierre, in
Northern Nebraska, where he served as
Aid to ien. Harney, and when arduous
duty was fXquired lie was always at his
post. At the commencement of the re
bellion, Col. Sweeny was on Iho recruiting
jcrvice, but was ordered to Newport Bar
racks, and soon afterward to fhe com-
maml of St. Louis Arsenal. This was
previous to fhe time when ken. Lyon took
the command. He was second in com
mand at the surrendec of tho notorious
rebel, Claib. Jackson, when, Gen. Lyon
being oisnbled by a kick from his horse,
Iho negotiations were conducted by Col.
Sweeny, Ho was .afterward appointed
Brigadier-General of the three months
Missouri volunteers. Previous to the bat-
tlo of Wilson s UrecsV, when it was do-
ided not to attack tho rebel Gen. Price,
Gen. Sweeny was so impressed that a
retreat would be worse than a defeat,
that ho prevailed on (ten. Lyon to make
the attack. In that battle ho was again
wounded, and still carries tho ball in his
eg. At the close of tho battle, when
General Sturgis assumed the command,
Gen. Sweeny was urgent in following up
the retreating rebels, believing that lind
it been done, (hey would have been com
pelled to surrender. (Jen. Sweeny is as
noble and generous as he is gentlemanly
and brave. Devoted entirely o his a-
doptcd counlry, when fhe rebellion broke
ou-, he than expressed himself in a letter
to a friend: " 1 will, through flood and
llamc, sacrifice, if necessary, any remain
ing limb in defense of my country's flag."
Such merit as his is not likely to lie
overlooked by the Government. V. 1".
Originator ol' (lie JCcbelllou.
In tho matter of personal character,
leaders and originators of the rebellion
rite peculiarly weak. There H scarcely,
indeed, a man of an unstained reputation
to bo found among the leaders of the
insurrection. Yancky is a convicted
murderer, who would have been in prison
instead of intriguing in Lnglnnd against
(he Union, had he not been pardoned by
the Governor of South Carolina. Wio
kall lied frm his native Stato to escape
the consequences of au assassination,
becamo collecting agent in Texas, and
swindled his principals of (he money Ik
trathered. Floyd, while Governor of.
Virginia, was detected speculating jn tho
BtoclvSof (he State entrusted to him fell.
Slidell, tho worthy successor of Yan
cey, u.-ed his influence as a Senator (0
pass through Congress tho notorious
lloi.MAs Lnnd Grant, a cheat socnormous
that the next Congress revoked the Grant.
Benjamin', Dams' Secretary of War,
was expelled from college for rifling
trunks, and was tho partner afterward of
Slidell in (he Hoi mas swindle. Thomp
son, while Secretary of the Interior, con
nived at tho abstraction of Indian Trust
bonds, and when dismissed for the of
fense, lied front Washington by night, to
avoid prosecution. Conn, as Mr. Bn 11
anan's Secretary of the Treasury, specu
lated in stocks at a timo when he was
plotting the ruin of that Government of
which he w as the sworn agent. Davis
used his great influence, in Mississippi,
to induce tho people of tbat Stato (o de
fraud their creditors. Toombs was the
confederate of Keitt and Brooks in their
attempt to assassinate Senator St mnku.
These are tho men who oiiginaied and
are carrying on the Southern Rebellion.
