A gci.'tlcman front Cumberland Moun tain yesterday brought in Uiree Yankee prisoners who had delivered themselves up to him, juid requesk.nl to be delivered to the military authorities. They are from a Kentucky regiment, and repre sent that there are hundreds of their comrades wli will desert on the lirst opportunity, and says that the whole Yankee army Is at present in a very de moralized condition, Bick aud tired of the war. Two of them had on citizens clothes, theyther was in uniform, but they all told the gentlemen who and what they were. On being asked where they got citizens' clothes, they replied from two discharged soldiers, which goes to show thut the discharged Yankee sol diers are not only glad to get out of the service but are disposed to assist anyone else who dorfres to leave, no matter if it as deserters. They also state that bitter feeling exists between the troops of Ken tucky and those of the abolition states, growing out of the emancipation and abolition policy of the Yankee govern ment. So strong is this feeling growing that it is with difficulty the Kentucklans and the abolition troops are kept from engaging in fights daily. Realizing tiik Pact The New York Tribunt says: "It is impossible to read the aocounU of the recent daring and successful Confederate raids in the very heart of both Tennessee aud Kentucky, directly In the rear of tho main body of Oen. llalleck's army, and under the lull operation of Order No. 3, without real izing that the mass of the whites in the regions thus overrun are cither adverse to the Union cause, or paralyzed by in difference or cowardice."

Guntersville, Ala, Shelled by Yankees- Gl'NTERSVII.I.K, July 30, '(12. Mr. Williams: Dear Sir We had quite an exciting time here on Monday, 2!)th Inst. The Yankees arriving in fonee of some 1,000. consisting of caval ry, infantry and artillery, on flie eve ning of the 27th, and commenced early Monday morning shelling the town, which they continued all day. I regret to say the wife of Gen. S. K. llayburn was lejlied by a shell. Mrs. It. was a most estimable lady. Mr. McNairy, a gentleman from Nashville, who was ac companying his mother, an aged and decrepid lady, was also killed. Mr. B. Matthews was slightly wounded. Sev eral buildings were burnt on the bank of the river, and the shell passed through several buildings in town about three quarters of a mile from the river. They commenced shelling the town without any notice. They left the river during Monday night, but are still on the north side of the river not far off. Your obedient Servant, 3ST. The "Mr. McNairy mentioned above is lf'nry Clay McNairy, son of the late Dr Boyd 'McNairy, of Xash ile, and brother of Maj. Frank JMcXniry, aid to Maj. Gen. Cheatham. Where aro the Young ..Tenncsseoaiis? Mr. Editor :I desire to enquire of you whether you can tell the public where all the young aiid ardent Tcn nesseeans ant who are reported to be on the line of It. Road from this place to Atlanta wha.t are they doing? are they waiting for other men to fight the battles and open the way to their homes and families, while they are pleasure taking at the different towns and watering-places of the country ? If this be true, it is a shame, and their cheeks should be mantled with a deep blush o: disgrace to he thus idle while the coun try needs their services so much. The Governor calls for a Tennessee State force, and each one of these young bloods should report themselves for du ty without delay. Keep them stirred up until they act their proper part in this great struggle. S. The Washington papers publish the following proclamation from Lincoln : BY TIIK PRESIDENT OK TIIK I'NITKD STATICS OF AMERICA A I'ROCI.A M AVION.

E.ui' i yin; the Hospitals.-The num ber i.f inmates iu the several hospitals in Richmond has decreased so of late that it has been deemed more economi cal to remove the few patients to other hospita s and do. e them while they un dergo renovation for the reception of victims of future battles. None of the hospitals now contain half the number of wounded that they did a week after the lato battles. JtJ"The Richmond Examiner urges that 'he cartel for the exchange of pris oners delivers a surplus of 8,000 Yan kee prisoneis and leaves citizen seized at will by the Yankee, to rot in d ungeons. The Confederate Arsenal and Armory at Fayettville, N. C, may now be said to be in full blast ; at leiu t there is noth ing pertaining to the Minnie ri Ile and sabre bayonet that cannot be manufac tured there. A good deal of the machin ery, and many of the tools are new, manufactured n the spot, and equal to any in the world. A few days since a large lot of rifles manuft ctured at the Armory, was sent to tho Chief of Ordi nance, Richmo id, Va. From McClellan's Army. The correspondent of the New York Express, furnishes that paper with a long letter from Harrison's I. aniline:. from w! " h we make a few selections: WHAT II K S.VY8 A1IOI T CONFEDERATE SOI.DIEItS. The men were exceedingly intelli gent in their looks, and very pleasant iu their conversation. When a large crowd left the boat to gather "relics" upon the shore, they managed to be come entangled with the secesh, and for some minutes quite a scene was in progress. Both sideswere good hu mored, asked and answered questions, and discussed the question of secess'o:i. The rebels used old logic, wliile our people lei 1 b ick upon past glory, the ling etc, the whole discussion resulting in an agreement to disagree, of course. The Federal guards were obliged to in terfere, and sent the boat's party back, much to the regret ot not a few, who seemed perfectly fascinated at the siht of a real, live, gray -backed rebel. NO I NION SENTIMENT IN RE1IKL ARMY. To sum this whole visit up, it seems perfectly plain that it is useless to talk of Union sentiment in the Rebel arin, . It lias no existence, in my judgement, at all. The advice of an ofllcer to a Jisi ening throng is applicable here, and I give it here for the consideration of your readers. "There is one way in which you can defeat us. Tut every man you have in the field, meet us at every point fight until there is not a Southern regi ment or soldier left, and the fhii ,.;' is accomplished. Then you can have the country and welcome. Make your peo ple understand this matter, and open their eyes to tho solemn truth, that If they insist on a restoration of the Union, it can only be gained by a war which will leave the south without a living man and make the North desolate beyond re covery.". , The Richmond inquirer, after allud ing !( tfie steps taken by the President relative to the orders issutvl by Pope and Steiuwehr, says : We take occasion to say that the Pres ident is also ileiii iiiiliiig redress for the. outrages of the enemy iu other quar ters We have author ity for saying that communications were, M'lit to the Lincoln Government some souk! weeks since, respecting the execu tion of Mumford, at New Orleans, and other out rages committed by the Yankee Generals : but no reply ha yet been re ceived. Another dema id has" recently been made iu regard to them aud the additional atrocities perpetrated by the Lincoln olllcials in different parts of tiie Confederate states. A short time has been given to the Federal authorities within which to reply, before orders ill be issued for the execution of the n en sures necessary for the repression of these outrages also. Deserters from the Enemy. "The Rockingham Register says that desertions from the Yankee army since its attempted occupation of the Valley of Virginia have been quite numerous. Those seen by the editor concurred in titing that if others of their companion s in arms knew that they would be He Mined kinll!i in the Confederate I'iuck that whole companies and regiments would desert. They represent the Fed eral service is too intolerable to be bornev especially as it obliges many who really love the South and have fiiends and kinsmen in the Southern Confederacy, to lift their hands against their best friem's.
