taxation ol the people, that a member
oi Congress is iu receipt at tho .Biiute

this act, is to bo constructed as mead
to do by tho Ei-xeutivu' authorities

Hunter Terrible Defeat—The 12th
Ohio Regiment.
This ga'leitt veteran regiment came
down from the Kanawha country on
the Allen Collier yesterday. They
arc about to bo mustered out of scr
vino. This regiment wag with Gen.
Hunter in his lato Lynchburg expedi
tion. We are informed by gentle
men who conversed with tho officers
and meti on board the boat, that thev
declare that General Hunter woaM
have takon Lynchbnrg if be had niado
tho attack the day he got there. Ilo
deferred nntill tbe next day, and tho
rouei reiniorcemenia cauao op during
the night. Their fnrca was theb bo
large that General Hunter ordered a
as
ecriea of eWrW 1a&i
in which our Joss was at loast 8,000,
iu Killed, wounded and iniasiny. On
'he retrtat it is charged that General
Uuriter filled the itmbalHiiccB with
i.egioee, to tho ueglect of tho wound,
-d white soldiers. Hie conduct is bit
terly denounced by all the soldiers.
It is also said that Geueral Crook
i.aa preferred charges against General
Hunter lor incapacity and cruel treat
ment of his men. As tin instance, it
is ehai-iitfd we hope entirely untruu,
lor it is !iiiot incredible that Gen.
Hunter cowbided a man pirsonally
fur ordering a negro 10 get ofl'a horso
to give plucu to a wounded soldier.
At CHniifllton, the head of naviga
tion on the Kanawha, 8,1)00 wounded
wero placed on barges and tovrei
down the river. Tlu uutfoiiug on
the.rctieat were terrihlo, an! a half
dizjn soldiers died per hour during
