avidity. In order to l'urni-h :i j ajx r worthy
of patronngc we shall --pare no pains., itnil ask
a liberal patronage. We are not actuated by
cupidity ; if wo were wo could have easily
t", .tiinl a wider lul.l than .following (ur h-iti-niatt:
business in our native town. Hut very
tow arc aware, nf tho heavy expense of pub

For th". Daily P.ulletiu.
Mil. Editor:- Will you please allow me to
inquire, through your paper, wliat arrange
ment, if any, Win. Gorman made for the re
deinption of his shinplasters, of which many of
ur citizens hold different amounts? Did he
leuvq any one in our town to redeem them?
We believe Mr. Gorman left no one hereto
redeem his tickets, und wo have heard of one
person destroying what ho had, believing they
would never be of any value. We hope Mr.
Gorman may see this, and be reminded of his
strange neglect ii leaving our town, just after
giving out all the tickets he could, and making
no arrangement for their redemption.
In justice to our citizuns who took Mr. Gor
man's " promises to pay," and took them in
good faith, albeit Mr. G. was only an itine
rant in our midst in justice- to those citizens
this is published, and in justice to Mr, G. a
fair lapse of time will be allowed for an ex
planation. JEd. Bullktin-.

"We learn that uu important derision on this
subject was made by our High Court of Errors
and Appeal?, on last Monday, in the ruse of
tho Southern Express Company agtdnst Moon,
from the Circuit Court of this county.
The Court, we understand, held that the
Express Company were under an obligation,
arising from their duty to tho public as com
mon carriers, to receive ali goods ottered to
them for transportation, arid to transport the
lame, upon there being tendered to them a
rfa.iontiblt compensation that from the nature
of their duty to the public, they were bound
for all losses or damage of the goods, unbss
caused by the act of Gud or tho public enemy
and that this general liability anddutyeould
not bo altered by any peeial agreement by
receipt or otherwise, unless it was clearly
shown that such agreement was entered into
by the owner of tho goods with a full knowl
edge of iU filed and under circumstances
showing that he was aware of his common law
right against' the Company and intended to
waive it, and that such agreement was made
upon a sufficient legal consideration. Cantou
Tar Drops. The most laughable instance
of the pitiable stato of despotism under which
.Baltimore labors, is that related bv tho Balti
more Gazette, in a local naraaraidi : '
Mr. Ankers was yesterday arrested by order
ol Uoioncl a isti, l'rovost Marshal, for cireu
luting a poetical advertisement of his tar drops
entitled Uncle Consumptive, What will
Cure II im ?" in which was recited, to the tunc
of Yankee Doodle, Home of the difficulties of
the Government; the last verse intimatinjr
that the Government was in a deplorablo con
dition, and that tho only nope lor it was m the
use of the tar drops. Ho was released upon
assuring Colonel Fish that ho would not here
after circulate or. publish tho objectionable
Correspondence of tho Dail Bulletin.)
IIomk, Oa., May 4, ISC;).
Ed. Bcli.ktin: I received a furlough a
few days ago and started for my homo in Jack
sonville, Ala. On arriving at this place I
found the wildest excitement prevailing. The
women were walking tho streets, pale and
tremblimg, asking every one pacing if the
Yankees wereeoming. Upon inquiry I found
that it had been reported early in the morning
tint a cavalry force were making toward- this
place, from thu direction of Gadsden, Ala.,
which place they had almost demolished, burn
ing a number of private houses and all the
Government stores in the town. Gen. Forrest
sent in a dispatch to hold the plaeo as long as
possible, that ho was pursuing them in their
rear. Cd. Caldwell, commandant of the po;.t,
had already commenced preparations for the
defence of the city. Two pieces of, artillery
were found, and by 0 o'clock were ready for
action unfortunately, though, no ammunition
could be found suitable for the guns, all the
cannon balls being so small that they would
roll out of the piece whenever the breech of
tho cannon was elevated. However, the pieces
were manned and placed in the command of
ome artillery officers who happened to bo
present, and a position sol ce tod. A number of
cotton bales were placed in front of tho guns
as a protection to the cannoneers, leaving
enough .open space to allow tho pieces to have
full play. In the meanwhile a vigilant search
was being made all over the .city for all the"
guns. Every citizen in the place who had any
kind of a firearm came out with it himself and
fell into line with tho company of soldiers on
post duty in tho place, making a force of about
two hundred and fifty fighting men. They
were marched on the other side of tho river,
and took up their position, waiting patiently
for the approach of the enemy. About 10
o'clock in tho morning news was received that
they were within a mile of the place, resting
their horses preparatory to giving us a fight.
About 2 o'clock in tho afternoon a courier
arrived with tho news that Gen. Forret had
captured the entire force, consisting of sixteen
hundred men nnd two pieces of artillery, and
that they would be in tho city that evening.
It would be impossible to describe the joy with
which this news was received. Ladies came
in great crowds to the plaeo where Gen. For
rest was to pass, eager to see their deliverer, as
they called him. "When he did arrive ho was
overwhelmed with showers of bonnets. The
ladies crowded around him. anxious to pay
him all honor, nnd show him how grateful they
were f'r his timely assistance. One hundred
and forty officers, all belonging to the Federal
command, were brought into town, paroled
nnd quartered in tho two best hotels in the
place. Tho citizens took care of all our boys
who came in w ith them. The remainder of
the force were encamped on the other side of
the river, and did not come in until this morn
All day the Federal officers have been prom
enading tho streets, smoking cigars and me.k
ing themselves as much at home as if they
were in the city of Boston, even going so far
as to express their feelings and opinions about
the people of Homo and tho South generally
on account of which Gen. Forrest caused them
to be placed under guard this evening.
I was very sorry to learn that Willio Wat
terson was wounded very severely in tho thigh
a day or two ago, while making a charge upon
these same forces. None of tho other boy
from Winchester were wounded that I have
Gen. Forrest's men are very jubilant over
their success, and tho more soon account of its
being exclusively a Tennessee affair, no troops
from any other Stato being engaged in it.
Summing up all the advantages we have
gained by the capture of this force wo have
saved the Government factories and foundrit
in this city; have captured about sixteen bun
dred stand of arms; the horses of all tho pris
oners and their equipments, and two pieces of
Gen. Forrest will remain in camp here a few
days to recruit his horses and men, who are
nearly worn out from riding and fighting
almost every day for eight days.

Died, on tho 1st day of May, 180.3, Mrs.
Mautha E. Stewaut, wife of Mr- L. II.
Stewart, of Winchester, Tenn., aged .'10 years
and !l days, tier maiden namo was Pope. She
was born in Franklin county, Ala., April 22d,
1833. At the early age of 12 she professed re
ligion nnd attached herself to tho Baptist
Church. On the 7th of November, 184V, she
was married to Mr. Stewart, at Russullville,
Alabama, and in tho year 1852, .with her hus
band, joined the Methodist Church. For some
years past she has been troubled with a disease
pulmonary in its naturo the long continued
and insidious attacks of which have at length
terminated her earthly existence. Through
the. past winter sho bore her acute sufferings
pa iently and w ith trutful submission to tho
evident will of her Heavenly Father, und then
when the scacn of the flowers and 'Mho lime
of tho singing of birds" had come.he gently
pushed away to the land where sh'pty ever
more thofadelcs spring time Yf love, ('ailed
upon to leave behind her a devoted husband, a
loving mother and sister, and two children,
upon whom every treasureof her maternal af
l'eeti m was lavished, the doom of departure
was bard and grievous to be borne the tri.il,
however, found her ready to make every prep
aration. She sorrowed, but did not murmur.
She bent beneath tho burden, but sought not,
in a rebellious spirit, to cast it down. In htr
lat illness sho anticipated often the glorious
hango when corruption slmuldht) clothed with
incorrup'.ion, and seeking also the future intbr-
st of those she loved. She frequently, with
tonderest entreaties, besought them so to live
that they too might triumph in tho hour of
departure, and thus bo enabled to rejoin her in
heaven. Her last moments were occupied in a
touching farewell to her famil v, and her feeblest
rcatli expressed thanksgiving to Hhn who
as robbed the gravo of its victory. Lives liko
hers are not known of tho world, but the watch
ing angel! keep tho record, and smile to soeil.
"May God, in His infinite mercy, console the
bereaved husband, tho weeping mother and
sister, and bo, as. He has promised, a comforter
iudecd to tlio motherless orphans. II.
Captain n. II. Garden, company D, 17th
Tennessee Volunteers, was bom .November
ISM, and died in Harrodsbitrg, Ky., on tho
2fth dav of October, 18i2, of a wound received
at the battle of Fcrryvillo, while battling for
his country's rights. It is but duo to the
memorv of the deceased to say that ho was
trave and tender hearted, nnd universally be
loved by his men, who ever lovd to ohry him.
He entered tho service on the 20th of May,
1801, as a private," not for tho promise of pay,
but purely for the love of country ; was soon
elected 3d Lieutenant, and, under the reorgan
ization was elected Captain over Capt. Finch's
old con1 nan v. This brave, patriotic, and be-
ove'd voting officer fell cheering his men on to
victory, leaving a disconsolate and heart
broken widow and three lovely children, not
to mention a long list of friends, to mourn his
untimely death. Long will be the time bo.
foro the vacuum occasioned by Lis death can
he filb-d; but he has gone, as we tiu. t, to join
a more nrihiatit army in tlio skies, whore no
more wounds will be inflicted, and nheredeath
never comes. .May his praiseworthy example
incite others to like deeds of bravery and
daring: for the relief ;ud redemption of our
hlc'dinu country. ..M. if.
