Milroy in Winchester.
A FAMILY IHtlVEM FROM HOME.
Tho family of Mr. Lloyd Logan, of
Winchester, eonsisting of Ins wife,
throe daughters and two Rons, having
k'cn d riven from tuoir own riortitit
home, by order of the brutal General
Milroy, that it might bo occupied by
Din. Milroy and bin fam ly, arrived at
Jus: place last week. Whilst .Mrs. Lo
y.r. and her children wero engaged in
.unrning worship, lie heavy footsteps
J Milroy's robbers arid plunderers
vovc heard 'n the hall. As Soon as
tlio devotional exercise,? were concln
(','."1 lb.; intruder:! entered the room,
and apprised Mrs. Looan that they
were coin liMii'.bvl by (ion. Milroy to
turn !,ier and her family out ot bouse
iiiul home, :i t; vl that, General Milroy
and his family would take possesion of
it. Mrs. Logan protested azainst be
inn eypeiieu in thai Krrimarv rind
!'iithhs3 nniTir iroin her on hcm,
and maintained that it was her hus
band's property, and that they had no
rijdit whatever- to molest her in the
enjoyment and possession of it. They
replied that their orders were prcomp
tory, and that she and her family nv."t
be ready to leave the honso by 12
o'clock, and that they would bo sent
beyond their lines.
One of them stepped up and demand
ed al! the keys belonging to the prem
ises. Mrs. Logan refused to give them
;ip. Rue in the mean time some had
taken possession of every room from
tho basement to the attic, including
the chambers of her daughters. O'ro
of her daughters who had just left, her
chamber and had witnessed what they
were doing, ran down and besought
tier mother to give them the -keys,
they wero breaking every lock in the
house. Tin keys were then given to
them. They entered every room, ami
ransiiflked cvety drawer and stole
whatever they could lav their hands
upon. They stole, all the money they
found, r.nd wop Id not allow Mrs. Logun
to take u sing'e garment of clothing
talon ",):,' to her husband and sons.
They.id "e.u; descend," however, to
allow her and he: danghteni to take
apait of thuir wnrdrobe. One of the
Yankees dressed hims'df up in ono o
-Hr. Logan's suits of clothes, and no
Jonbt thinking that as he had on a
Ssitlcman's clothes, he lookod more
like a gentleman til an be ever did be
fore, walked up with an air of pride
and asked one of the daughters, "How
ho thought ho looked iV her father's
clothes V She wilted him with the
Prompt reply : Yon look, sir, the per
Unification and embodiment fa rogue,
which is yonr true character."
None of the family got any break

Yankeeswith b:v,oucts,"1slfJO'i guard

Spartan courage, to brave all da rigors,
and that ho could not bo persuaded
nor intimidated, they sent to (k-n.
Milroy for instructions, when the mes
sengers returned with the message
that her son would join her on the way.
She told thorn that would not do, that
her son must be wilh her before sho
would bo taken a step from homu.
Seeing that she was determined, and
t hat she could not bo duped by a shal
low trick of treachery, they released
her son and sent him to her. Before
this time, Mrs. Milroy, worthy to he
tho wife of her .husband, had arrived
with the view of talcing possession of
tne nno mansion. When tins family
were thus thrust from their own house,
Mrs. Milroy clapped her hands jn ex
ultation,,and exclaimed, "(Jo ye seeesh,
1 hope you may bo made to starve."
They were taken under guard of sixty
cavalry to Newton, whero they wero
left, it s the Yankees supposed, without
the means of getting farther. When
Gen. Milroy was asked by some of the
prominent citizens of Winchester what
charges ho made against this family
that he treated them so, he replied that
they had observed the day appointed
jn- President Davis as a day of fast
ing, humiliation and prayer ! This is
such conduct as could be committed
by no other than one who has become
intoxicated with his exaltation from
boatman on tho Ohio River, to head
porter in a Cincinnati Hotel, and then
fro m porter to Major G e n e ral o f t h i e v os,
plunderers and murderers.
Tho old servant woman, the cook,
who had been faithful under all trials
and temptations, went to tho Yankee
who had the basket of keys belonging
to her mistress and demanded the
smoko house key, Raying that, as her
mistress had had neither breakfast nor
dinner, she was determined lo cook
her some-thing to eat Kfore she left.
This faithful negro cook happened to
be puPsessf-d nf" totnru' which could
run, when provoke r, as f 'stand foul as
a fish woman's. When !.he Yankee re
fused to lot her have tho key to get
her mistress something lo cut, she
poured out upon him a stream of de
nunciatory epithets which he richly
deserved, but which it would not do
for us to publish. The reader may
form somo idea of what she said from
the following, which arc some of the'
mildest epithets used in tho old wo
man's vocabulary. "You moan, low,
trifling, dirty, poor wh'to trash, you
ain't fit for nothing but to rob and
steal. You poor cowardly rohbers,
that's jist fit to steal niggers and dcu
rob dor masters and mistresses what,
ain't got rotning to fight you wi.l.
Why don't you go up do Va.lle)', wiiar
Massa Jackson is. He's got guns and
sworus and bayonets, jist like you i-
why don't you go up dere and see him
you mean, sneaking, cowardly, poor
white Yankee trash, do wus kind in dt
world." Tho old cook gave them
".Tosso," and as she was in the panlony
cf an cthiopian skin they were com
pelled to lake it.
