' The Yankee Prisoners.
Tho Home Courier has tho follow--ing
about tho conduct of the Yankee
prisoners whom Forrest captured be
fore they could do any harm to 'Home:
Tho prisoners generally, were re
markably impudent and Insulting es
pecially the officers. One 'of their
officers, a Major, was publicly cursing
General Forrest on the streets for a
scoundrel and a rascal stating that
when Forrest domanded a surrender,
the Yankca negotiators were trying
to get tho best terms possible, Forrest
appeared suddenly to got very mad.
Sworeiio would wait no longer, that
ho would rather kill tho whole of them
than not. Ordered his couriers im
mediately to direct tho commanders of
four separate batteries, to place them
on separate points of hills. And or
dered the commanders of four separate
regiments, to bj formed immediately
al particular points in line of battle.
And that tho couriors absolutely dash
ed off, as though thoy were going to
have these orders executed. And as
the" dashed off, Forrest told them his
signal gun would bo fired in tea min
utes, when in fact, he said, the rascal
had tmt two little cannon, nd not
tuore than a half regiment ef men all
told. That Forrest was nothing but a
Tho impudent whelps, openly on the
streets, avowed their intention to be
back hero in less than three months
burn up tho town and hang every man
in it, because, they say, they were
bashwhacked. This is, of course, an
idle boast of tho poor cowardly devils,
to cover their shame and disgrace.
, They said of course they did not
come into Home just as they expected,
but they could not stand all that ; but
such a number of them to bo gobbled up,
by such a littlo squad of dirty snotty,

Spirit of our Women.
Among the passengers on the train
yesterday coming out from Vieksburg,
wasa woman, who from her appear
ance, was undoubtedly familiar with
poverty and acquainted with grief.
Accompanying her was her eoldier son,
flouio sixteen or seventeen years of age,
in somewhat delicate health, who had
obtained a furlough at Vieksburg, and
was on his way homo to spend a short
season with his mother.
On their arrival at Edward's depot,
and hearing that that point was threat
ened by the enemy, the mother remark,
edto her son that he had probably
better return to his regiment, that he
might be cut off from Ivs command by
going on with her, that a critical junc
ture was upon us and that his country
now, needed his services more than
ever. As happy as eho would be to
share his company at homo for a few
weeks: sho told him she would prefer
that he should remain at the , post of
duty until tho presont crisis was passed
over. He accordingly got on the down
train and returned to Vieksburg.

an sent 10 tnera without a promise ef
disgorging a dollar, will be found a
very different task from buying of tho
Yankees and paying in sundries at a
handsome profit. It is true that a
largo amount of English capital here
tofore used in the United States has
been drawn home, and a still eroater
amount added by the timid Americans
who feared to leave their all in their
native land, amid theso scones of com
motion and bloodshed ; and this will
partly bridge over tho English diffi
culty. But it will not givo permanent
relief; and if our difficulties should be
settled, and this money called back,
the pinch in the English money mar-
ket would be anything but laughable,
however funny our troubles appear in
lingusn eyes. There aro thoso who
predict tho suspension of the Bank of
England before the closo of this year j
but whether this occurs jr not, it . in
eertaiji that there will be sufficient
stringency over thero to turn tho at
tention homeward which is now occu
pied concerning American affairs.
Franco may share in tho same trouble,
as her imports from new avenues of
trade have not been counterbalanced
by exports of French products suffi
cient to equalizo tho current of exchange.
JS The Columbus Times says : In
Goneral Bragg's report of the battle
of Murfrecsboro, occurs tho following
paragraph : uIhe enemy s loss we have
no means of knowing with certainty.
One corps, commanded by Major Gen.
Thomas L. Crittenden, which was loast
exposed in the engagement, reports
over 5,000 killed and wounded. As
they had two other corps, and a
separate division, third of a corps, r.nd
their cavalry, it is safely estimated at
3,000 killed, and 16,000 wounded, add
ingthe 6,273 prisoners, and we have a
total of 25,273." Here General Bragg
estimates the Yankee loss in that bat.
tic, exclusio of prisoners, at 19,000
men. The official report of Kosocrans,
as we have lately seen, sets down his
loss in killed and wounded at 19,340.
It must be conceded then, that Gen.
Bragg, while he may not be so great a
strategist as some of his civilian critics,
whoso absence from tho field is so
greatly to be deplored, can still form
a tolerable correct opinion on some
ggiu The destruction of the Cheat
river bridge by Imboden, will effectu
ally interrupt communication upou the
Baltimore and Ohio llailroad for some
time to come. That bridge cannot be
built in a day. It was a single iron
span thrown across a rocky gorge, be
tween whose perpondicular walls the
angry waters of the Cheat rushed im
petuously, several hundred feet below
one of. tho wildest spots of the
grand mountain rogion of Western Vir
ginia. Tho locality of the bridge is in
Preston county, some twenty -three
miles from Morgantown. Thoso who
bavo admired and wondered at this
magnificent structuro will regret that
the necogsities of war compelled its
destruction, Chrmide . Sentinel.

Sr A New York insurance compa
ny has been mulcted to tho tuno of $100,
000 by the Florida, that amount being
the insurance on the "Lapwing" and
the "Concord," captured and burnt.
The probability is.'that as the first of
July approaches, the prices of provis
ions will decline more and more, in
consequence of the anxiety of parties
to dispose of their stock in timo to
avoid tho tax collector. Tho benefi
cial effects of tho law will bo felt" in
this sonsibly as in anything else. In
tho prospect for a decline of prices
6pocuIators will not be likely to make
very extensive purchases of articles on
which they will bo compelled to pay
a heavy tax. They will bo more in
clined to hold off, and let them pass
into the hands of thoso who need them
ior iamuy consumption, in this way
tho law will arrest speculation and
benefit that portion of the community
who make their living by hard labor.
The New Postaok Currency. A
new issue of ton cent postage stamps
has been made, and is quite a popular
currency, being as much sought for as
change in tho absence of smull notes
as for posting mail matter. Tho stamp
is of lighter print and much neater
than tho old stamp, and bears tho bust
of tho President of the Confederate
States in profile, enwreathed by the
words " Postage ten rents, Confederate
States of America." Tho issue of theso
stamps has already been largo, and
threatens to supplant tho fivo cent
stamp, since tho postago on letters
has been increased to ten cents.
Personal. The Hon. Alaxander
Hamilton Stephens, Yico President of
tho Confederate States, reached Peters
burg yesterday morning, and spent tho
day visiting our hospitals, and convers
ing with tho sick and wounded Boldicrs.
This great and good man is in tho en
joyment of excellent health, and exu
berant spirits. Ho read Gen. Leo's
official dispatch of tho recont . groat
victory near Fredericksburg, with
feclingsT'bf high satisfaction, and spoke
in glowing terms of our gallant army
and its brave and accomplished leader.
The Late Battle. Independent of
the groat but dear bought victory re
cently vouchsafed to tho army of Gen.
Lee, we have great cause for rejoicing.
The advance of Hooker is a good sign.
It means that after Lincoln's visit and
all manner of bribes and inducements,
tho two years' voluntoers have refusod
positively to reenlist. Consequently, a
fight had to be mado before the troops
were sent homo. Tho result is beforo
us, and wo should feel under grateful
obligations to Almighty God and to
Yankee tensity for it.
Deceased Confederate Prisoners.
The Medical Department statistics
snow tho number of Confederate pris
oners who have died in Union hospi
tals since tho commencement of the
war to be over five thousand, instead
of two thousand, as previously reported.
The following Y.inkoo officers
woro to bo sent North, from Kichmond,
by flag of truco, on Tuesday : Two
generals, six colonels, seven lieutenant
colonels, eight majors, sixty captains,
and sixty-one lieutenants. ' '

Tho enemy are fortifying at Rocky Springs
and Willow Springs. Onlorhaust is at Cayuga
with 1500 cavalry and six or seven regiments
infantry. They are reinforcing Willow Springs
and Rocky Springs from the river. Grant will
probably advance east, and not direct to Vieks
burg. A special to the Appeal from Senatobia 30th
reports that Trice met and chastised the Fed

It is reported at Memphis that the Confede

quiet. Yesterday afternoon troops from Cin

ringleaders wero arrested. Every precaution
is taken to provent a renewal of the outbreak.
A St. Louis dispatch says that ono hundred
of tho most prominent secessionists were ar
rested. No favor wna shown them. They and
their families aro to bo sent South.
TULLAHOMA, May 11
General Bragg reviewed a portion of the
Alabama troops yesterday, and addressed them
briefly, in a highly complimentary manner,
and gives them spirited encouragement as to
their situation in the front. "llo ardently
hopes they may meet an attack from the
onemy. He leaves to-day to inspect other
corps. All quiet in the front.
Scouts from the front to-day report the re
moval of the enemy's heavy baggage and tunts
to the rear.
The Nashville daily papers of tho 9th contain
telegrams of tha battle in Virginia. Tho Fed
eral loss, in Scdgewick's command alone, was
5,000 men. The editor says that Hooker hav
ing changed his baso tells'tho story that he is
defeated. Our first reports wore baso fabrica

tho chronology of our sanguinary defeats in
