THE DAILY REBEL
SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 28, 1863 THE SITUATION. There is no question but the enemy is ad vancing to give battle. In anticipation of his approach every preparation is being made to give him a warm reception. Bag gage and the stock are being sent to the rear and reinforcements to the front. An other brigade from Western Virginia passed up yesterday chiefly Virginia troops on their first campaign in Tennessee. They have been somewhat delayed by the burnt bridges. When they met the down train between here and Decherd yesterday, the Virginia boys, eager to be in time for the "dance" literally besieged the passengers with queries as to whether the "ball had opened." With such spirit and eagerness for the fray, manifested by our troops, there need be no apprehension as to the result, A portion of Buckner's command passed up late this evening, and Jackson's will prob abily follow this morning, if the arrange ments for transportation can be got in read iness. We learn from a source every way relia ble, that Breckenridge's Division did not reach Montgomery, as was first reported, having been recalled by Gen. Johnston's to Jacks-on. We overestimated our loss in killed and wounded. The whole number of wounded will not exceed 200, and there were not 75 men killed. The brigade of Gen. Bate did most of the fighting Wednesday, and the 20th Tennessee Regiment was the principal sufferer. It was reported last evening that three or four thousand of the enemy's cav alry had occupied Manchester and that the enemy had burned one or two residences this side of Hoover's Gap. . o The Call of Governor Harris. All of our readers have doubtless read the call of Governor Harris, published in the Rebel of the 26th. It calls out six thousand of the militia men of the State, from the ages of forty to forty-five, and is specific of detail and full of minute information. It is also patriotic in spirit and eloquent through out, a document calculated to serve its turn admirably, to represent the State fairly abroad, and to enhance the reputation of it author. It is needless to say that we second this call with all our heart, especially that por tion of it which gives the privilege of self organization to regiments, battalions and companies formed by volunteering, on or before the 1st of August. We commit the entire document to the careful perusal and patriotic thought of our fellow citizens. That it will be answered by acclamation before the time appointed, we have not a doubt. The honor of Tennessee has never yet been involved by her good people, who know as well now as they ever did, their duty to State and country. They will respond with quiet fervor. We can not better enforce our own earn est feeling upon the subject than by quoting the words of Governor Harris himself:' "Men of Tennessee! if you would resist these raids, predatory bands and incendiar ies of the enemy, organize at once and stand ready to repel or crush them. If you would protect your private property, defend your wives and children, your personal liberty, your national independence and your lives, organize at once and stand ready to strike for them. "Let the beardless boy and the hoary headed father organize for the defense of their altars, their homes and all that is dear to freemen. "Let the gallant men who have been dis abled by the exposure and hardships of the camp or the casualties of bloody fields, give to these new organizations the benefit of their experience and example. "Let -every man who can wield a musket or draw a sword, who is so situated that he can not swell the ranks of our army for con stant duty, organize at once for home de fense and special service." o Gen. Polk's Report-Correction. In the publication of the official report of Lieutenant General Polk, of the battle of Stone's River, before Murfrccsboro, a few days since, we were the occasion, as we are officially informed, of injustice to a part of one of the brigades of the corps under his command, by a typographical error, which was of course unintentional. In reporting the part borne by the brigade of Col. Mani goult, of South Carolina, which was com posed of three regiments of Alabamians and two regiments of South Carolinians, the Lieutenant General spoke of the peculiar difficulties with which it had to contend, and the intrepid and unavailing assault it had made upon the enemy's line, and remarks, "but the gallant SOUTH CAROLINIAN returned to the charge a second and third time and being aided, &c, &c, the enemy gave way and joined his comrades in a pre cipitate retreat," &c, &c. As'printed it was SOUTH CAROLINIANS. This error of the types assigned the honor of the un daunted and determined spirit shown by the brigade its tenacity of purpose and repeated to charges the South Carolina portion of it only, whereas it was so written as to ascribe that honor to the Alabamians and South Carolinians jointly, under the command of their gallant leader, Col. Maniguult. o Our old young friend Capt. Gurley, will please accept our thanks for l- t Louis ville files. The Rain. Well may we exclaim with Clarence Man gan, "Oh! the rain, the weary, dreary rain," for seldom has the season known a period of such protracted, uninterrupted, sunless weather. We remember, indeed, the old distich, " It rained continuously through January, And ai (or sunshine we hadn't nary; but this refers to the Winter. To fall upon four live long days in the heart of Summer, with nothing but one blank sky of leaden clouds, one wide waste of water, and one burst after another of thunder, varied by no other sight nor sound, "nor ray of sun nor song of bird," day by day. "From morn to noon, from noon to dewey eve," presents us certainly a miricle of the ther mometer, of bad luck and of mud. As we look out of our window now upon the swol len current of the Tennessee, pouring its mighty torrent along as if to welcome a gunboat, or swallow a yankee, the ridges of black mist boil up from behind old hills, and a gust of. wind murmurs, "the rain! the rain!" In truth we do not need the warning voice, for we see it. It comes not gently iike the tears of woman, but noisily like those of a naughty boy pitching, plashing against sash and sill. Look Out Peak is quite obscured by it. The cupola of the Presbyterian church looks like the ace of hearts through the mist. Why, even the market house is invisible. Alack the day! If we were not promised no more deluges, we think we should begin to play Noah and build an ark. We have already had to play the mechanic, for only last night three of our window panes were broken out by the pelting drops, and all the morning we have been endeavoring to patch them up with pa per. This has proven afruitless labor thus far, for as fast as we put on the sheets an other storm blows them off again. They are like some of our postage stamps, and won't stick. The failure teaches one good lesson, however, and that is the inefficacy of a paper blockade. It also invokes the old lesson of, "try, try again." We shall proceed-as a distinguished friend of ours often remarks, upon a familiar occasion--with our usual dignity to do so. Meanwhile, beseech ing the prayers of all the well disposed men and women for our ultimate success, we ex tend our sympathy to all, who like ourself, have been confined to the house by having no water proof soles, or like some of our neighbors, have wheat in the field cut, but not gathered, and wishing heartily, -" the rosy cheek Of a laughing, hoyden, sunny day." O jtr"A Tennessee Soldier" writes us from Shelbyville, as follows: " We are informed that Treasury Notes dated prior to December, 1862, will not be fundable after the first of August, and perhaps will not pay debts thereafter. We wish to ask you what provision, if any, has been made to enable the soldier on duty, who cannot go to Chattanooga or other depository, to fund his Treasury Notes, (which we would all be glad to do,) or to ex change them for notes of later date?" i We have heretofore explained and now re peat, that the Treasury notes dated prior to 1st December, 1862, if not funded on or be fore the 1st day of August, will still be re ceivable for all dues to the Government ex pect export dues, though no longer fundable that a large proportion of them would be converted into bonds, and that the taxes al ready levied was sufficient to absorb the rest. Even if they are not thus absorbed, being less desirable than subsequent issues which are fundable, they will take their place in circulation and still pass in ordinary transactions as formerly. We see no reason why they should materially depreciate, as the Government is as much bound to re deem them as any other notes. There is, therefore, no, real cause for uneasiness on the subject. In reply to the question, what provision has been made for the soldier on duty who is unable to visit a depository in person, we can only state that we know of none. The notes, however, can be sent, by express, or by some friend of the person who desires to exchange them for bonds. The depository at this place will receive money by express, and issue certificates or bonds (he is now only issuing certificates, the bonds not hav ing reached him,) and return them accord ing to the directions of the party interested. He receives deposits frequently in this way. The bonds, when they are issued, will bear date with the date of the certificate which is now being issued, and draw interest from the date of the deposit. The soldiers, in camp may send, either by express or hand, their Treasury notes to Jesse Thomas, the depository at Chattanooga, and he will re turn them a bond or its equivalent, as they may direct. The name of the person mak ing the deposit, and of the person to whom it is desired the bond should issue should accompany every remittance. Bonds will not be issued for fractional parts of an hundred dollars. Therefore, re mittances should be made in so many round hundreds or thousands. Bonds may be of any denomination desired, from one hun dred to one thousand dollars, counting by hundreds. DARING ROBBERIES. Night before last, about a dozen men, apparently soldiers, armed with muskets, went to the house of Mr. Kirklin, an old citizen living a few miles from this city, and demanded his money, and upon his refusing to deliver it tip, they dragged him into the yard, and beat him with the buts of their guns until some of the female .members of his family procured a sum sufikient to satisfy their demands; when they released him, after inflicting se vere injuries upon him. They also threat ened his life and avowed their intention to rob other families in the neighborhood in the same way. We have not heard that they attempted to carry out their threats in other instances. On yesterday forenoon, in open day, and in the centre of the business part of town, the store of Mr. Peter Marsh was entered, during Iiis temporary absence, and robbed of two hundred ani fc orty dollnrs in money, and some goods. These are not the first robberies that have been committed in and around this city by men clothed and armed as soldiers, and a stop should be put to such proceedings. We respectfully call the attention of our local military authorities to the subject, hoping that if these outrages are perpetrated by sol diers that the guilty ones will be ferretted out and properly dealt with. o-- CONFEDERATE TAX COLLECTOR. In response to several inquiries, we state that applicants for appointment as Collect ors of the Tax recently levied by the Con gress of the Confederate States, should ad dress, D. N. Kennedy Chief Collector, Chat tanooga. o Written for the Chattanooga Rebel. DIXIE'S FAST DAY. We are thinking of ye, brothers, Of the struggle dark and deep, Of the fast day, sad and weary, That ye often have to keep, Of the toilsome march and ever, The cold and rugged bed, And our heart is bowed in sorrow, v cannot tsts cur bread , We are weeping for ye, brothers, Our injured Dixie's friends On your brave and gallant daring, Their more than life depends, But our spirit sometimes falters, With waiting for the day Of redemption from these horrors, And the tears will force their way We. are praying for ye, brothers, The closet is our 6hrine ' We dare not lift our voices, Beneath the stranger's vine, But God is ever nearer, The poor and broken heart, And THIS DAY, with Dixie's daughters, We'll bear our humble part. Bring PEACE, unto her borders, Oh I stay this bloody tide, And bid her lift her drooping head, Once more in Freedom's pride, And as we pass this Jordan, This doubtful, dark eclipse, May we emerge in glory, With THY NAME upon our lips. January 27th, 1863. "ESTELLE." From the North. Telegraphic Dispatches to the Louisville Tress. CAIRO, June 18. Considerable excitement pre vailed at Columbus and Hickman for the past day or two, in consequence of an anticipated attack by the Rebels. , The steamer Tlattville was fired into at Bradford's on the way up. She was struck six times, one shell penetrating the ladies' cabin ; one passed through the pilot house, and two entered the hull, where one ex ploded. A large number of musket and rifle balls struck the boat. The barber and two soldiers were killed and several passengeis wounded. This occurred while the boat was attempting to land for cotton claimed by three passengers, who were evidently in collusion with the Kebels. I hey were placed unucr arrest and brought here. MURFREESBORO, June 18. Bragg has undoubt edly received reinforcements of three brigades, Bate's Clayton's and Churchill's. These, with Brown's bri gade, were left behind to form a new division of Stew art and Hardee's corps. Bragg now has eighteen brigades of infantry and seven of savalry. There are indications of co-operation with Buckner from Knoxville. Bragg is about to assume the offensive and invade Kentucky, striking about Monticcllo or Carthage, in East Tennessee. Buckner has a large force, and is rapidly organizing for offensive operations The exempted men who 'tiave been burning salt pe ter and nitre in East Tennessee have been armed by Buckner to guard the rear, and aid in gathering the immense crops of the State. The Union men who planted wheat largely and in hopes of Burnsides reaping it have turned their stock into the fields to destroy the what now ripening. They despair of the Union troops reaching their dis trict in time to avail themselves of the crops. Gen. Gracie's brigade of North Carolina troops oc cupy Cumberland Gap. Buckner has published an order threatening deser ters: He says all officers absent without leave on the 20th of this month will be conscripted and forced to serve in the ranks. The lowest estimates gives Bragg's force at forty thousand men. Knoxville advices say Grant will undoubtcrly take Vicksburg, then flank Jackson from below, capture Port Hudson, and strike at Montgomery and Mobile sometime. ' Col. Bradford, commanding the post at Knoxville, advertises in the Register for the apprehension of Capt. J. T. Mathews, of the United States army, who escaped from Jail in Knoxville on the 30th of May, where he had been confined on the charge of bridge burning. Geo. Lyles and Geo. Williams were hung to-day for the murder of Adam Weaver. This murder was com mitted within the rebel lines. Alarm Among the Subjugators. The alarm of the North occasioned by the invasion of their territory by the Confeder ate army continues to spread. The Louis ville Democrat of the 19th has the follow ing: The intelligence which comes to us from the East is alarming in the extreme, and is the legitimate fruits of the incapacity and partizan character of our Administration. Under the influence and control of men whose whole political creed is embraced in the single idea of hostility to slavery, the war has drifted from its original purpose to restore a Union of the States, and practi cally, if not theoretically, it has become sec ondary to the forcible abolition of slavery. After indulging in further furious and bold onslaughts upon the "Abolition" ad ministration, the writer continues: Every flash over the electric wires is a thunderbolt of wrath, and we stand appalled before the dreadful truth a portion of Lee's army is pouring into undefended Pennsyl vania, while Lee himself, the master of the situation, holds in check the army of the Rappahannock. A year ago that same army lay in serried lines in front of the rebel Capitol. Now why is it we find thus same ?rmy scarcely able to defend Washington, and wholly unable to defend Pennsylvania? for the President has declined to comply with Gov. Curtin's call for a force. Ask the returned volunteers from the Army of the Potomac. Ask the soldiers in that army. Ask every citizen of every shade of political opinion, even those who endorse the President's acts, and they will ascribe these disasters to the removal of McClellan. Ask tjicm also, Republicans and all, to say candidly why he was removed, and if they speak what in this hour of trial is the sentiment of their hearts, they say it was because of his political principles, which did not co-incide with ' those of President Lincoln. This is no time for excuses, apol ogies or evasions. There is but one answer, the party feeling of the Administration con trolled even the selection of military officers and no man was though fit to command the grand army of the Potomac who did not agree with the political (party now in power at Washington Now there is a call fir McClellan louder and mord emphatic than ever, and the peo ple may get from the fears of the Adminis tration what could not be obtained from its justice, but get it, perhaps, too late to save the honor and integrity of the nation. Now when danger comes New York calls for General McClellan, Pennsylvania for Gen eral Franklin, to defend them; and from the impartial justice of those States, those two gallant officers, repudiated by the Adminis tration, receive the honors they deserve. There is nothing like peril to arouse men to the merits of those who can best protect themT In the meanwhile whatever is done must be done quickly. 'Every hour is an age. Elsewhere in the same paper, we find the following paragraph: It is not easy to divine the purposes of the rebel leaders in their present move ments. We do not believe they intend to make any extensive raid into the free States. It is not their interest, and they have a sharp eye to that, and generally know where to find it. They have compelled Hooker to fall back towards Washington, instead of moving on Richmond. If Lee's army is as large as it is reported lo be, however, he contemplates a pretty ex tensive plan of a campaign of some sort. We are not putting down the rebellion very fast in the vicinity of Washington. We may console ourselves that this is a desperate move to redeem a cause nearly lost; but a cause is not desperate that can make such demonstrations of strength. It is as well to dismiss all ideas of desperation, starvation, &c. Such calculations have been disappoint ed so far, and we place no reliance upon them. Hctr Ct5rertisements. VVANTED TO HIRE.
