is not a force of more infamous marau
ders, more disgraceful tlreves and
pickpockets and consequently more
dastardly set of cowards at heart, than
tho Hoosiers of tho West in Rosecrans'
army. Their outrages upon helpless
women and children, in Tennessee and
Northern Alabama prove this. And
vet there are some who believe in en
deavoring to eoncilitate this class of
ctit throai robbers with sweet words
and fair .propositions. Wo trust we
shall hereafter hoar no more of such
stuff. During this entire Abolition war
tho conduct of the Western troops has
been of & oharaotor that placos them
upon a level with tho lowest of barba
rians, and tbey ought to bo treated as
such. Honeyed speeches nover avail
much with savages, it is only tho cold
stool and the leaden bullet that brings
them to their sonses. Augusta Chron

Whenever we hear of such philan
thropy in Franklin county, Toniif.'Siv,
it will afford us pleasure to chronicle
Piucjcs. Prices in some sections
have come to a kind of "stand still,"
neither going up or going down, halt
ing,as it were, "between two opinions "
In other sections tbey keep tumbling,
tumbling, tumbling lower and lower
each day in spite of tho extraordiua
ry exertions to keep them up. It is
very evident that tha backbones of the
speculation mania that existed som
time since has been broken, and will
stay broken notwithstanding the ef
forts of interested parties to splice it
np. Prices have got to come down;
