ihixs r four weeks ago w ould bave been deafened,
and nerves which would lluo W.i...

There i. one gun, however, to .which mortal oars
can never become at-cu-oined. It ia said to bclonz

tiiey travclic.l up tho course or tae Appomattox,
must bave been beard very distinctly at Farmville,
or some jioint higher up.
Our citizens have christened this rebel monster,
the "baby wskrr," and tbe enemy rail it the 'Yankee-Killer."
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.
Wo new havo tho undoubted intelligence, that a
band of rebels who have recently entered Maryland,-
hare induced two of Grant's Army corps to
pack up "bag and baggage," and steer for Abra-(
ham's presence. Tbo (ith and 2d Army Corps,
Wright's and Hancock's) bave bid farewell to the
bftl Virginny shore. -Wright made his exit on Satur
day, and Hancock on Sunday. Hanoock carries
away some tbrco thousand lcs than be brought to
City Point about three weeks ago. Gea. Mahone
gathered up nearly eighteen bundred of these wor
riors on tha 22d and booked them at Provost Mar
shal Dridgford's Iloadquartcrs, to say nothing of at
least twolre or fifteen hundred wbo were placed be
neath the scd and iu the hospital. Of Wright's num
bers we know little. Of their powers of locomo
tion we kndw a good deal, for tbe way they travel
ed from Reams' Station, during tbo small hours of
Thursday, the .".Otb, leaving their formidable breast
works ad.scieatifically constructed "redans," was
a marvel even to tbe Confederate grey backs who
were so eager to embrace them.
Other, corps are no doubt about to leave, if they
are not already on their winding way. Our scouts
hi front of tbo enemy's left, failed to find them yes
terday morning, although they hunted industriously
for several miles.
We continue to bear of the scarcity of water in
tbe enemy's lines, and of tne viadnous taste of the
fluid which is now pumped np from tba Appomat
tox. At this they would not bo surprised, if they
bad counted as we did yesterday in tba Appomat
tox, tbe pntrifying carcasses oi' eevonty-one dead

It is a glorious record of a noble army :
Abbjt or TsxncssE, July 49, 18t.
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-

it is erect, unmoved, andinnayed, in toe prcsenco ol
misfortune; it is as prond and defiant hero in Cen
tral (teorcria as whn its guns Startled tuo dweller
on the slaores of the Ohio and Cumberland.
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. Tbo

and stripped for action, only to . resume tho lino of

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

Threatened Collision lletween the Military
and State Authorities ufNew York.
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.

Put politics aside, these acts of tho so-cail-cd

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. Ofconrsowo have rccogni.c.I

2. 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
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.
