THE DAILY REBEL.
THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 21. 1G4. A Military Murder. Wa thoald rather ray as anmilitary murder. We rarpeclfollr ak th attentioa of oar authorities to tha follow log narratire which appeared in the colacoa of tho LouiiTiue Joernal, f the 4th of J a j. Even in the height of the ilorai of war, which, w.ta sereileM fury, i raging arvund, there ill 11 ami, atnall to ice, which should ever le heeded and never drowned. Tba wrong of thi yoaiig man cry to Ilearan for atonement. Even tha Loairrille Jo a real, ia a mild manner, protei U agmiaat the atrocity, aad saall not oar own Govern ment, take measures U terminate yuch crimes against humanity and justice as are here detailed ? The Journal sajrs : TbU.war. so full of romance aad exciting interest, exerts a powerful iuflnciice upon the iinpulaive tod lb of oar land, and aluioM unconecioualy they are drawn into the whirlpool of wild excitement, aad aspire to deeds of dc.-pcrate adrcntare. Many a yoeth posaeascd of a pro ad aad haaghty spirit, ia thus lured from tho quiet walks of life to be radely tossed, like a co-rkle-ihell, upon tba angry billows of a seething, raging tor rent, then with a careen as sadden as t'j fearful, disappear from light aad time, doim, down the spiral wind of ihe "boiling vortex of we and mii ry. 'Dock' Frame, who was born in tho balls of wealth and reared in the lap of luxury, a I air-haired yoath, possessed of all the fiery impttn saroeM of the Sunny South, in tba earlier stages of the rebel- lion. UBwp wi borne In Decherd, Tenneasee, and became a daring leader of a guerilla-band, a no'ed biiRb-wbacker, and a wily scout, Ilis bold, reckless daring, bis thirst lor blooJ.and bia wOy cunninssooa won for him a wide notoriety, aad a name alike known to fame and to ft tar. As a scout be prored himself valuable to tbi Confederate cause, and as pilot for raiding-parties in Sherman's rear, none was more skilful a'nd sue!esifol. Our troops bad often attempted to effect bin ci.pture, but each expedition sent out for the purpose retu'-neif fruitless from the chase. Several days a 50 a party aent oat from Deo hard, made a sudden' decent on one of his secret haunt, surprised and mt.de biin a prisoner. The soldiers at once returned to camp, and, with a feeling of exultation, dclivsrc d him up to Cot. McConnclI, commandant of tho pose of Decherd. Toe prisoner was at once eel signed to the darkness of a gloomy prison cell. He wa kept in confinement several days and on tic morning of the 22d of Jane wa brought frmu prison. Col. MeConnell, without the formality of s. military court or the sanction of the eommandin;; leieral, ordered bint to be shot; and squad of fi re soldiers was detailed to carry the order into exec at Ion. Much as we abhor guerrilla warfare, aid strong ly as we advocate the summary pun lament of all the outlaws who engage in it, we think Col. Me Connell should have given Frame a trial under the military law. There is ao doubt that nctpita) rn tenee would bare becu pronounced upon him, and the execution aoubl then have taken lace with all. doe propritl T. Now it may lead to retaliation, and tbas increas the borrors of the war. Our soldiers woald be perfectly justifiable in giving ni quarter to guerillas, bushwhackers, or rebel iruidcs, when taken with arms in their hands; but; wben once they bare been recognized as prisoners, the usages of war, as well aa the principles of humanity, for bid their execution without a trial." No trial waas accorded to thia young man. He was ordered out of person tix) shot ilnwii, like a dog', after having been treated an a prisoner. If the enemy are permitted to. proceed in this man ner, all prisoners are at their mercy, i.nJ the word of a military satrap rojrcnirtpo tfcn to -a auiuii ai ry death. c . Misaaa X3T Every indication now points to an early and a sanguinary battle in the vicinity of Atlanta. That battle may possibly occur to-day. It may be j progressiog while we write. That it will be stub- J bornly contested and bloody, ia tbe natural consc qoenca of the condition "in wffWh either party ; would be left by defeat. Tbe Yankeo anny is far from borne and remote from its base ; in a country, every foot of which is hostile, and thrtogh vhioli a retreat on the heels of a disaster wld be imios sible. Defeat to the army of Gnered Sherman means ntter and remediless min. To as, defeat involves tbe surrender of Atlanta, and the various lines of Railroads lcat.ing to it, and the abandonment of more . territory more crop to be exhausted, aad more peoile to be out raged aa.1 insnlted, to the foe. a? Jt raejjis all of ro ta that can be imagined, all of wrong that can 1 inflicted apon this part of Georgia. Great and vttaTconsequenees are depending npon tbe result of this conflict. Wa hop that a kind Providence will give wisdom to our Generals,' and strength avid valor to our sol diers to win the fight and cover our imttnies with con fas ion. We believe that we will triumph. bave boundless faith in tbe army of Tennessee, an-1 the Generals wbo lead il. We know tttat they will ia all taat duty can demand, patriotism prcmpt, or cooraga inspire. They are full conscious of tbe . great responsibilities ' resting upon them, and will betray no trust cooflded to their fccepiig. And we who are behind their lines bave dutien to perform aa well aa they. Courage and fortitude are aa es sential here aa there. That gallant army look to tba coat-try behind them to repair dististera which may poibly overtake them, and may ' unavoida ble, bat whether unavoidable er not, must be re paired if they occur or our cause ia Ijs'. Calmness, courage, fortitude, a resolute rletermi . nation to reoe'wva that heroic army if it is driven back npon aa mangled and bleeding, bind up its woands, supply its wants, and place it once mere in a condition io meet tbe enemy, is as much a part C daty aa agwUag" war battle!

If its deadly effects may be correctly judged by its detonations, we think it wonld be safe to infer that it has sent many of the invaders to "Kingdom, come," which being interpreted into plain English, means tbe place where Dives lifted up' his eyes and espied Lazarus afar off.

Editors Appbal: In French commentaries on campaigns and battles, wi constantly encounter the pnrae "esprit du eorps, signibeant of tnat unity of sciititDent, purpdse and courage which animates an army thoroughly disciplined. No body of troops was ever characterised by more thorough Uovotou- ness and fixedness of purpose than the .army of Tennessee. Past eaapai;ns have purified it. lael K ben n an strike it, and the ring of the puro metal will rinound through the bills and valleys of Georgia- c c spirit, one soul, ivervaden this aimy.

Tbe eiiprit of the army tif Tennessee does not de rive its existence from geiicrals-iu-ebief. If Cbcat bam, Loriug, Bate, Walthall or French, lending di visions, were one uundretl miles away, tne veteran soldiers under their ordeni would fight as gallantly as when directed by a lieutenant-general, or by the commander-in-chief. While this absolute, unwav ering confidence subsists, while every soldier is con scious that his commander watetes for bis security when grasping the fruits of victory, ho rarely looks beyond to tho remoter agnucy of generals and lieu tenant rcnerals. There aro brigade in this army, -as there are regimcntfs to which the los of their immediate leaders would ' ctisaytrous ; uui ii is true, in tbo army of Tennessee, whatever may be tbe facts elsewhere, that division commanders are tbe impersonations of that esprit du corps so cher ished and cultivated by warriors orcvory age. Such are tbe facts as regards this amy, whatever may be true of that now led by Loo and Beauregard. There in no one man whose loss wonld be fatal to our sucocss. and not one whose presence is indispen sable to victory. The same subordinate officers who led men to victory at Shiloh, Murfreesboro', Perrvvillo and Chicamaugar achieved triumphs un der different lieutenant generals, and another commander-in-chief at Rc.iaca and Now Hope.

Tho army of Tennessee is still proud and defiant ; as devoted to the causo they espoused ; as full of bate for tbe isrnoblo, selfish raee who would enslave them, as whan tho first gun oehoed along the borders of Maryland and Virginia. Men whoso courage was unthnkon at Missionary Ridge?' who bave siuco yielded to the pressure of numbers, and yet assailed, llicm with that confi dence in their own prowess which inherent con scious of superior courago inspires; who light us wclhdn tho midst of retreat. as"when advancing on XashviUe or Cincinnati ; ci.n never be demoralized by the mere substitution of men who lend tbe army.

Wo have alluded to the threatened collision between tho military nuthoriea and tho civil authorities or the State of New York. The Philadelphia Inquirer tells the whole matter in the following editorial : Tbe now attempt of Gov. Symour, of Xew York ta jret his Htuto nto a eoi.to.it with th Federal Uovernment is "pro";reHsin; finely. After aratul jury refused to indict lien John A. Dixd'or obeying the order of the President at the time of the aeizo.ro of the journals which published the bogus proclamation of IToward, Gov. Seymour instructed the State's attorney to try it again by prosecution he fore some magistrate. Judge ilussel, who has made himself notorious by his parti zau conduct on tho bench was very properly se lected as tho "'raoat daatarless nnd lit man" to do tbo job. Jlis partiality could not be doubted, nnd he has entered upon the work with real satisfaction. The motion has nl-. ready been heard by hi honor . Gen Dix justices under the official order. The State lawyers havo discussed tho subject and con tend that the order was illegal. Judge Rus sell holds the case under advisement un til Saturday, when he will no doubt utter a long tirade, in which his desire to embar rass tho Government will bo demonstrated, by copious quotations, to be a legal duty. Gen Dtx.mny refuse to give bail to answer the charge. What next? The former indict ment was presented npon information by the district attorney. Gen. Dix was not called upon to answer it, until it has been found by n grand jury to bo a true bill." "Will he submit to tho authority of Judge Russell, who is sitting as a committing magistrate, or will he.rcfuso ? If so, what is to be tho issue? Will Gov. Soymour order out tho Now York troops to execute tho process, and arrest the general or will the latter resist with the pow er of the United States? If the matter is urged to extremities it must coino to this, nna what tho ultimate consequences may be it would be unsafe to predict. Let us have Infallibility. . Nothing ia easier than to conduct a great Revo lution. A scattered agricultural people, who know nothing of war except what they have read in books and newsiapcrs, who are as unaccustomed to manu factures as to arms, may suddenly be set npon by a gigantic tyranny, gigantic in numbers, wealth, ro aources, :ind tbo capacity, of developing and con-' solidatin; its strength, and by the inherent virtue of their cause, tbo handful of untutored agricul turist can sttspose of thir advwaaries aa miptty aa David did of (loliah. If thoy do not, it Is the iaalt of their Government, which ought never to have takun upon itself each tremendous responsibi lities, without being able to make the ran to shine aad tbo tains to fall, thereby leouring plenty to cat and drink; and other attributes of omniscience and omnipotence, enabling it alwaya to make a proper selection of ages.ts, and to control all the circum stances and wants of human action. We are sorry to say that tbe Government of tbe Southern Confoderacybas fallen far short of this high standard. It has- proved itself to be merely human, aad therefore liable to error. We do not wish to ba eaptioua or censorious. We admit that it baa aooomplished more in pioportion to its means than any other Government, similarly situated, of which hL'ltory makes mention. It is probable that, before tba beginning of this war, tbe whole civilised world would have agreed that Id r. Seward, in al lowing ninety day a for crushing out tbo rebellion, exhibited great moderation, and made a liberal Al lowance for tha obstacles be would bave to encoun ter. The result, it' is true; has astounded the na tions, but it might have been even more wonderful. Tbe North ought to bave been conquered aad com pelled to supplicate hambly for peaein six months. A Government of true ambition would never be satisfied with any achievemeaahort of this. If it cannot accomplish superhumaa'aueeosa, it ought at once to resign, and permit tbe denigods now in pri vate life, and who are painfully aware of its short eoming, t take its place, and redecnthcir country.

F.vcnon tho Southern "Suite rights" theo ry, Kentucky has not scceiled. iter people, by their votes nnd by their'aetiona. have ad hered to thoir allegiance to the National (ov crnmcnt, and tho South would now coerce her out of our Union and into theirs, by the very dogma of "coercion" upon which ho much stress was laid at tho outsot of tbo war,. and which carried into rebellion the peo ple of tho middle and border slave States. Put politics aside, these acts of tho so-cail-cd partisans or -guciillas are nothing but simple murder, horso-stealing, arson and other well defined crimes which do not sound as well under thoir true name ns more agrcc- abiio ones of war-like niecoiog. Now, before starting on this campaign I . - . . , . a i. biMvUiuvi , tm etna 'Very ca.'ie would arise, and I asked jGov.

Tho fict is, in our country pcrsonallitcrty has been so well secured, that public safety is lost si;rht of, in our laws and Constitution, and the fact is, we arc throwji back one hun- drsd years in civilization, law and .every thing clc; and will go right straight to an archy and the devil, if rsomebody don't ar rcit our downward progress. We, the mili tary, must do it, and wo have right and law on our side. All governments aud communi ties have a right to guard against real and even supposed danger. The whole people of K entucky must not be kept in a State of sus pense" and real danger, lest a few innocent mon should be wrongfully accused. i. You may order a!! your post anddistrict commanders that guerillas arc not soldiers, bu t wild beasts, unknown to tho usages oi wur. To bo recognized an soldieirs they must be enlisted, enrolled, officered, uniformed, armed and cpiipped by belligerent power, ar.d nfust, if detached from a main army, be of sufficient strength with written orders from some army commander, to do some mil itc.ry thing.

Th civil power being insufficient to protect life and property, ex Hre..iiliitt . to prevent anarchy, ''which nature abhor," the military steps in, and is rightful, consti tutional and lawful. Under this law, every body can bo made to "stay at home and mind hi 1 and her own business," and if they won't do that, can bo sent away, where they eun- ncl lcaMf tli air Ii orient neighbors in Tear of danger, robbery and insult. .1. Your military commanders, provost innrKhals and other ugeutx, may arrest all mules and females who havo encouraged or harbored guerillas and robbers, and you may cause them to bo collected in Louisville, and when you have enough, say three o'r four hundred, I will cause them to be sent down tho Mississippi, through their guerilla gaunt let, and by a sailing ship send them to land wbere thcy.may tako their negroes nnd make a oolony with laws nnd a future of their own. If they wont live in peace in such a pai-den as KcntuckT. whv we will send lhem to another, if not a bettor land, and surnjw4 this would be n kindness to them, and a God's blessing to Kentucky. I wish you to be careful that no personalities aro mixed up in this, nor does a full and generous love of country ''of tho South,', of their State or country, form a cause of banishment, but tha t devilish spirit which will not be satisfied, anl that makes war the pretext for murder, arson, theft, in all its grades, perjury ,and all the crimes of human nature. My own preference was nnd is, that the civil authorities of Kentucky would and could do this in that State ; but if they will not or cannot, then we must, for it must be done. There must be an "end to strife," and the honest industrious people of Kentucky and the "wholo world will bo benefited and re joiced at tho conclusion, however arrived at. 1 use no concealment in saying, that I do not object to men or women having what they call southern feeling, if confined to love oftrountry, and of honor peace and security, and of even a little family pride, but these become "crimes" wheu enlarged to mean lovij of murder, ot war, desolation, famine, anc! all the horrid attendants of anarchy.

As it has always been by sea and mountain side ancl on tho plain where hard blows were givra and manly breasts havo been bared in their country's cause, whero death has fallen thickest and the shout of victory has risen, there have tbe brave Georgians been found. Slow but resolute in her counsels at first, the State has stripped like the athletic fold for a contest of life or of death, and not a nerve has she left untried. From Texas to Pcnn syl rania, on overy field, ail her sons, like her great dead son, have gone "to illustrate Georgia." But if all should feel their -claims, how sttcmgly should they be appreciated by us of son tli Carolina. r ever have we, flic special mark of Federal malignity, had to bear tha onset of "the foe but the sturdy Georgians stood by our side. They sharjd the huniili aticn of Port Iloyal they had laid down their lives at Wagner they lie doep cntoin ed 'beneath the classic ruins of Sumter and novr their voices raise the shout of a victory tbey hare wou by the side of the sea-. Thus have they shared our sorrows, endured our trials, and joined ns in the glad strains of triumph. NoWo (Joongia. Diomcd of States.
