CorrpHpondcnfs will confer a groat
favor on 119 by leaving their communica
tions for inspection at our leisure. We
have no time to bear communications
read over by their authors. We are al
ways glad to bear from any one who baa
a fact to impart or a thought to suggest,
and hope to bear often from those who
can contribute to the public information.
The Way the Ilcbcl. mine Troops,
To what extent the hearts of the South
ern people are fired with a determination
to prosecute tho war of treason may bo
clearly seen from the desperate and vio
lent measures adopted by the rebel lead
ers to fill their ranks. There is no moro
volunteering worth talking about to re
plenish the rapidly thinning rebel ranks.
The Confederate Congress has actually
found it necessary to pass a conscription
law forcing every man between 18 and 3.')
into the army. By Southern newspapers
we read of impressTnentfj, into the army
by marauding troops in various quarters.
The alternatives presented to the nnfor
tunato victims of theso bandits are volurr
leering or deat'-. The Iiichmond Dlqmtrh
of 111 1st of April publishes with great
glee a letter from Monroe county in that
Slate which says :
The militia ore gathering at their dif
ferent places of rendezvous in goodly
numbers. One of the recusant ones, who
utterly refused to go, and swore he would
die leore 7i would go, drew a knife upon
tho guard who went for bun, when the
guard iircd upon him, breaking bis leg
about the knee-joint. 11 is leg will have
to be amputated a sad warning to all
others of bis disposition. Our Court met
yesterday, to transact business in con
nection with the proclamation of tho
resident to establish martial law in this
county, ne hope thai uihon tit law is cvr-
t ied out the- Union man will lie hunled vp, and
treated as they deserve.
A letter from Fort Tiliow of April 27,
gives tho following additional testimony
on this point :
Last evening, six refugees, J. A. Ne
villes, W. B. (Jlisson, Charles Trance, S.
Y.. Hawkins, J. Herring and Alexander
Champion, all but the last residents of
the city, arrived bore from Memphis in a
skifl having left there 011 Sunday night,
and rowed all the way; going up Wolf to
Old river into tho Halchce, and thence
across the overllowcd country below Ran
dolph, through tho Arkansas swamps to
the place now occupied by tho lloiilla.
1 he refugees say they loft Memphis be
cause they were Union men, and knew
they would be forced into tho Kebcl army
by tho proscription act recently passed
at Uichmond, Virginia. i bat most un
just and tyrannical bill, they say, has
caused hundreds of persons in lenncs-
see, and doubtless elsewhere, to fly from
their homes as best they could.
Every man who could bo found was
being seized and dragged into the South
cm ranks, and those who resisted were
shot withont mercy. Several of the res
idents along tho Tennessee and Arkansas
shores if that can be called shore which
is shoreless say that no male person
would have been permitted to live here
without taking up arms, had the lleet
arrived two weeks later. Thv maraud
ing bands were scouring tho country and
forcing every body into the army when
the gunboats mado their appearance,
frightening away the cruel outlaws.
How can any army tilled with such
soldiers stand against our twenty millions
of enthusiastic and resolute volunteers?
No wonder that two regiments inl'HAU
recaud's army throw down their guns
and refused to fight the other day.

Firing ih Sontliern Heart.
A letter from Pittsburg Landing, April
17, tells how the heart of the rebel army
f ere "fired'' by-Beauregard to fight for
the hellish cause of treason against the
cause of the Union. It says :
"The Southern army at Corinth has
been on half rations for more than a
month. Tho men have: been fed on bard
bread, pork,- and rye coffee a diet very
much calculated to extract from the sol
dier's life the romance with which
Southern chivalry might be supposed to
invest it. On the first morning of the
late battle, however, an extra ration was
issued, In the shape of a canteen full of
tangle-foot whisky to each man. This I
know by actual observation, as well as
by the statements of wounded rebels
and prisoners. On last Saturday I saw
ii.i(. loss than fifty bodies of dead rebels
piled up in one, place, by the side of a
ditch, bung dug for their burial. Near
ly every one of theso bad by its side a
canteen with more or less liquor in it.
On the Sunday in which the first of the
battle was fought, more than one half of
Beauregard'B army was drunk. Tho ob
ject, of the 1 extra rations ' is apparent.
On the plea that this ii a struggle for
human rights, they convert their soldiers
into demons before engaging in it. The
people of the North haye often wondered
how the Southern soldiers could be guilty
of the acts of barbarism that have dis
graced tho American character on every
battle-field from Bull Bun to Pittsburg
Landing. But does not the 'extra ration,
account for them all? It does not aston
ish the readers of daily newspapers to
learn of (he commission of deeds of atro
city by the poor wretches brought daily
before the police courts for punishment,
and they should not be astonished if the
same cause produced the same effect
elsewhere than in the streets of Cincin
nati and New York."
First impress soldiers, then make them
drunk, and teach them to cut the throats
of the sick and mangle and mutilate the
dead. Good God! can mankind longer
ndure such atrocity ?
The rebellion is a failure an igno
minious, unmitigated, incurable rauure.
I'arolles, Pistol and Bobadil must bang
their heads henceforth in tho presence of
Jeff. Davis, Bcaurcjrard and Breckin
ridge. The braggarts of the Southern
Confederacy .commenced in a hurricane
and ended in a pitiful squeak. Its birth
cry was a storm but its death groan was
the hiss of a troose.
The Hklmvmd JJxunihuf ofthc22dsays :
The destiny of the Confederacy is trem
bling on the result of Yorktowo. If suc
cessful, it will give us six months for
carrying out the conscription act, arming
and equipping a large army, and launch
ing a fleet of Merrimacs; bnt, if unsuc
cessful, Virginia is lost.
' Cotton is not King. He is a very dbo
ful subject in his place, but not near so
useful as corn, 'wheat, beef, pork, iron,
wood, coal, salt, flax, potatoes and lumber.
Mart is the only sovereign that we ac
knowledge in our free government and
every man is a sovereign. Wo will toler
ate no'insolenee from KiDgCot(on,or Kin
anything else. This is a government of
freemen, not of property, or institutions
The Southern press compl jins greatly
because of a want of mail. Wonder if
they would not like to have Uncle Sam
to carry it for them ?
The rebel leaders are playing their last
card at Nashville and other places with
in the Union lines, by circulating rumors
of the retreat of our forces and the re
turn of the rebels. No doubt many timid
persons are awciLby these malicious lies.
It is high time that tho law should ( ie
theso dislurbrrs of the peace and put
them in their proper place a felon's cell.
The Southwestern Baptist, published
at Tuskegee, Alabama, says : " We sup
pose, from the best information we have,
that at least one-half of our aHive pas
tors are now in the rebel army."

A touching sceno from the battle-field
is thus related by a wounded witness
" The Lieutenant was in advance of his
men in the bayonet charge, w hen a volley
from the enemy shattered his right leg
and the Captain's left. They wore both
removed and laid side by side, when
William called to the surgeon, and said,
'Surgeon, you must amputate my leg; I
can't stand this.' The Captain tried to
pursnade him not to have it removed, but
he was determined, and said it must be
done The surgeon then administered
chloroform, and amputated his log. As
soon as the operation waa performed, Wil
liam called for a cigar, and smoked it
very leisurely until tho fire was very near
his lips. The Surgeon then came along
nnd inquired 'How do you feel now,
Lieutenant ':' to which he replied, 'Very
comfortable, but I feel as if the slump of
a leg you cut oil' was on again, and the
toes were cald.' Ths Captain said it
mado him shudder to hear William speak
socooly, and he turned his head so as to
look in his fare. As he gazed at him he
thought his eyes looked strangely. At
that moment William sal up, and in a
voice which never sounded louder or
clearer, shouted to his men, 'forward
march,' and fell dead."

The Oath of A IIciIau e.
Yesterday, between one and Ihnr.
o'clock we visited the ollice of the pro
vost marshal, in each of the four districts,
for tho purposo of ascertaining the num
ber of citizens and aliens who have taken
the oath of allegiance since the declara
tion of martial law, which was made'on
the 18th of March. The following is the
result of our inquiries:

were notcitizens, is 10,002, only :!071 less

No one wants to sell anything, but en
deavors to avoid selling; knowing that
the wretched shuiplamters, which form
the staple of tho currency in retail cir
cles, are entirely worthless.
There is no gold or silver in Memphis
or vicinity, and no notes even of the Bank
of lennessec; but in fLiir stead the
town is hooded with five, ten, and twenty-live
and fifty cent issues of the Ten

Outrage on the Federal Dead Offi
Wamuxotyik, Arr.ir. 30. Th.? report of
the Joint Committee on the Conduct of
tho War, in regard to the barbarous
treatment of tho remains of ofllccrs and
soldiers killed at P.ull Run, is very long.
It states that the facts disclosed arc of a
repulsive, shocking and painful character.
Foreign nations must with one accord
consign to lasting odium tho authors of
the crimes, which in all their details ex
ceed the worst excesses of the Sepoys of
India. Our dead were buried, in ininy
races, w ith their faces down ward, v.r"
left to decay in open air, while their
bones were carried oil' as trophies, some
times fir us-p as personal adornments;
and one witness delilvately avers that
the head of one of our most gallant offi
cers w-as cut, oH' by a Secessionist, to be.
usi-il as a drinking cup on t10 occasion
of his marriage. During tho last two
weeks the skull of a Union soldier has
boon exhibited in the oflice of the Ser-geant-at-Arms
of the House of h'epreson
talivcs, which had been converted to
such a purpose, and which was found on
tho person of ono of the rebel prisoners
taken in a recent conflict. The testimony
of Gov. Sprague, of L'hode Island, con
clusively proves thnf tht body of ono of
tho bravest oflioers in the volunteer ser
vico was burned, because the rebels be
lieved it to he that of Colonel Slocuui.
These disclosures should inspire tho
ptoplo of the loyal States to renewed ex
ertions to protect the country from res
toration to the power of such men. They
should and we believe they will (say the
conrmittce) arouse the disgust, and horror
of foreign nations against this unholy
