received, which contains the follow
ing article contradictory of the report
that Geu. Smith was in front of that
The excitement among the people
ofthe country north of Cfncinnati,
who are most intimately connected
with us by social and business ties, at
the news that this city was menaced
by the enemy, has far surpassed any
thing that we have witnessed here.
The most extravagant reports have
been circulated and widely credited.
It has been believed in some quar
ters that the rebels have crossed the
Ohio at various points in glat force.
The church bells have rung alarms.
Companies without number have or
ganized. lifles have been collected
and ammunition prepared. The far
mers have mounted their horses and
turned out with their wagons, taking
with them provisions, blankets and
horse-feed, and started for the city in
immense processions.
The railroads have been asked to
bring in the companies thronging all
the stations. The idea of danger of
invasion has electrified the whole com
inuuity. The clangor of angry par
tisan disputation has been silenced.
'I'hose who have been reproaching
each other as abolitionists and seces
sion sympathizers, have forgotton
their controversy and have taken
down their rifles.
As to the extent of the danger the
proclamation of which has celled par.
tisans, merchants and farmters, from
town and coun;ry, to present them
s«lves here in arms, there is unques
ticniablv real danger. The force of
the enemy that hls invaded Kentuc
ky is frmidable. It consists ot
lpretty well discip!ined and very well
armted troops. '1'hey have efficient
cavalry and artillery. They are ani
nmatlci by success and thirsting in
ten.sely to carry the war into the
INNorth. T i:ey are ably led, and are
recruiting rapidly in Kentucky.
They announce the purpose of re
maitning in Kentucky at all hazards,
and their great ambition is to take
andi destrov Cincincinnati.
'iThe alarm which has pervaded the
country is not false, it is true anudsig
nificant. Movements of the enemy
are difinitely ascertained to be in this
direction ; it would seem a rash enter.
prise in them to attack Cincinnati.
but they are enterprisilng to audacity.
«Ve must be, prepared for them.
'ITheo rehb.ls are reported, with artil
lery, within forty miles of Cincinna
ti. A dispatch from Falmouth, Ky.,
dated at one o'clock this morning, re
prrts the rebels within four miles of
that place with artillery. Falmnouth
is f)rty miles from Cincinnati, on the
Covington and Lexington railroad
It is situated at the fork of the Lick
ing river, and is the county seat of
Pendleton county, which Lorders on
Kentou and Campbell countice
these immediately south of us.
This must be taken as an indica
tion that the appetite of the rebels
tforCinciinnati i, so great that they
are determined to try the experiment
of paying us a visit,
Sickness Caused fro m Exiposure 1t
Draft.'
The Newburyport ( Mass.) Herald
says it never knew it so sickly be
fore at Newburyport as is now. ThM
diseae afifects only innles between
the ages of 1S and 45. The cases
iare verq! distressirg. Several have
occurred where men have nearly
lost their sight ; they say that bad
as they hate the Confederates, they
could not see one across the street
and spectacles are in demand. Some
are badly ruptured but were never
;roubled by it till last week; and
others are lcname. This disease atftet.
the mind as well as the body. They
see war in a different light than for
merly, and soren of the fotremost ab
olitionists begin to., thiuk they would
be w*illing to abandon the negro if
the war c,:nld be closed at once.
