If we credit the assertions of tho rebel
pipers in the South, and a certain class
of papers in tho North, wt must believe
that a large portion of the Northern peo
ple are engaged in stealing slaves, who
tun awar from their masters, and we
t must charge the loss of slaves who run
way from their masters, to tho efforts of
anti-slavery people of the North. All
intelligent arul candid slave-moners know that
this is not the fact, and that the Ions to
slave-owners from runaways is a trifling
per centags, and that in nine cases out of
ten perhaps a much larger proportion
Blaves run away of their own accord,
without bring tampered with by anti
slavery emissaries. It is usual, we
know, for rebel demagogues, and their
northern sympathizers, to speak of the
loss of slaves ns enormous and an in
tolerable burden to the Slave States
but this statement is most effectually
answered by the following extract from
the census Report for 1800. The Super
intendent says :
That the complaint of insecurity to
lave property, by the escape of this
class of persons into tho free Hlates, and
' their recovery impeded, whereby its va
lue tins been lessened, is the result of
misAiiprehension, is evident, not only from
the small number who have been lost to
- their ow tiers, but from the fact that up
to the present time the numlier of escape had
lieen gradually diminishing to such an extent

Tho highest estimata of the annual
loss of Kentucky, which has alway
sull'orod more than any other slave Stale
in',this respect, was Governor MaoofkinV,
who hinted as plainly as he dared that

causes: ill-treatment by their masters,

of all communities and practically the
enemies of the slaves ; hut this eternal
brawling against a miserably insignifl

of journals which speak of these fanat
ics, as if they wero a formidable body
in tho Freo States, has become intolera
bly disgusting, as well as most mischiev
out in its effects on the inimU of ignor
aut and weak tteoiilo in tho South. An
editor who trill All his "2"er n ith
absurd calumnies is not i w hit too lion
rat to steal a slave, and would do so in a
moment, if he could pocket a few dollars
by it. Such persons are responsible for
much of this ilipjoralilo sectional en
mity. , .

The following paragraph is from the
Charleston (S. C.) Conner:
An order had been extended for every
family to leave tialvesion, it having beeii
del 'rmiiied, as iu the case of Vicksburg,
to defend it to the laat. This order Inn
been complied with, except by aoiue seven
families. The parlies being ausK.'ctrd,
their homes were searched, when the stars
and stripe were discovered, intended to
be hung out should tho 1'cdcral take tho
city. All those guilty of this treason
wero taken oul immediately and hung.
There is rebel mercy and toleration,
according to a rebl paper. The mere fact
of possevking al'iiion tlag was mound to
condemn these imfortunule people to an
ignominious death. Who does not shud

We learn on good authority that Gen
eral Nai.sojc has oiderpd fivo 'hundred
negroes, belonging to rebel masters, to bo
Sent to him, for the purpose of putting
them to work for the benefit of the army.
We are not informed as to the work they
will bo required to do, but suppose they
will be mado to aid in re-building the
bridges destroyed by the rebels, and to
construct fortifications. It might be a
good plan to fortify Murfreisboro. Gener
al Nelson has done exactly right in thi
case, and we hope his example will be
extensively followed by , our officers.
Why dont nnr authorities here find woik
for a few hundred? They might be use
fully employed, for ourselves, while, at
the same time they were kept from aid
ing the Codfederatc Government, We
hone the matter will be attended to
promptly. General Nki.soN, has given
strict orders, we learn, that no loyal man's
slaves shall betaken, aud the same rule
would of course be observed here. This
is the policy. Weaken Hie enemy, irli'e you

We thank our comtemporarv of the
Tazewell (III.) Eepuhliran, for the follow
ingvery complimentary notice. When
we put down the rebellion, it will be
time enough to attend to the discussion
of tho "minor political issue" of which
the Rrpullican speaks, but to turn aside
now from the great work of saving tho
Itcpublic, to debate some point, which is
of necessity a mere abstraction at pres
ent, would be unwise and unpatriotic

The Union is a large, well printed pa

who, as ho himself says, "opposed the
election of President Lincoln, and voted
against him, and regretted his election,"
"Hut," he continues, "there is no possi
ble nucleus around which we can rally
and fight for the Union, the constitution
and the supremacy of the laws, except
the Administration of President Lin

with us on Bomo minor political issue,
yet we have no hesitancy in pronouncing
it a staunch Union paper, fully wide
awake to all tho great issues of the day.
We havo seen more sound and philosoph
ical editorial in the Union, than in any
other paper cither North or South. It
contains the latest and most reliable
news up to the date of issue.
The paper should be supported, by so
doing1, we not only givo aid and comfort
to tho publishers, but givo encourage

peace to Tennessee, and winning back
the misguided sons of the South to the
old Union of free and independent peo

;nerrllla Itnid on Ilopklimvllle,
We lenrn from Major Love, of tho
Third Kentucky cavalry, that some two
hundred guerrillas, led by Lewis Garth,
of Trenton, Todd county, entered Ilopkin
ville last Monday. Mr. Lovk was unable
to g"ivo us any particulars, but we have
little doubt, from tho violent character of
their leader, that outrages wero commit
cd. Tho military authorities were no
tified this raid was contemplated, and
we are surprised that a force a as not pent
to liWl them.
The Three Hundred Thousand Vol
unteers for the Federal Army will be
raised far sooner than was anticipated,
by the most hopeful,'it is said. What a
pity the President did not call for six
hundred thousand. We ought to have
from 50,1 KM) to 200,000 in every rebel
State; enough to grind tho rebels to im
palpable powder. It would save time,
men, and money; three very valuable
things. AYilh this force and 3,000,000 of
the slaves of rebels to work for ns, make
our entrenchments, build our bridges
and railroads, cook for us, and bring us
information, wo could wind up this
domnable rebellion as quick as a certain
locality could scorch a feather. We have
the power, and why not use it? Why
the very rebels laugh at us iu their very
sloovcs as a set of imbeciles, on account of
our display of Constitutional scruples.

Gen. Port's march on Gordonsville,
Virginia, was a very important move,
meut. He destroyed all the railroad
and telegraph paraphernalia at that point,
the junction of the Orange, Alexandria
ami Virginia Central llailroads. Three

plies of every kind for the. rebel army at
Kichmond, of necessity passed through
Oordonsvillc by rail.
This looks like a mora vigorous prose

The following general order is issued,
to be enforced by military commanders
iu the District of Kentucky :
No person hostile in opinion to (he
government and desiring its overthrow
will he allow ed to stand for otlice in the
District of Kentucky. The attempt of
such a person to aland for olhVe will be
regarded as in itself sufficient evidence
of bis treasonable intent to warrant his
arrest. He who desires the overthrow of
the government can seek ollice under the
government only to promote its over
throw, in seeking ollice he becomes an
active traitor, if be has never become one
otherw iee, and is liable both iu reason
and in law to be treated accordingly.
All persons of this description w ho per

Hereafter, in any operations of cavalry
forces in this command, no supply or
bagzngo trains of any description will be
used except so staled in the order for
movement. Two Jays' cooked rations
will be carried by men, and all villages
or neighborhoods through which they
pass will be laid under contribution in
the manner specified in General Owler
No. 5, for subsistence or men and horses.
Movement of cavalry must always bo
made with celerity, and no delay iu such
movements will be excused hereafter un
der any pretext.
Whenever an order for the govern
ment on any portion of this army eman
ates from these headquarters, the time
of marching and that to be consumed in
execution of the duty, will be expressly
designated, and n,o departure therefrom
will pass unnoticed without the gravest
and most conclusive reasons.
The commanding officer will bo held

i GENERAL ORDER NO. 7.
The people of the Valley of the She
nandoah and throughout the region of
operations of this army, living along the
railroad and telegraph lines and routes
of travel in rear of the United States
army, are notified that they will be held
responsible for any injury done the lino
or road, or for any attacks upon trains
or straggling soldiers by guerrilla bauds
in this neighborhood. No privileges or
immunities of war ran apply to lawless
bands of individuals not forming part of
the organized force of the enemy, nor
wearing the garb of soldiers, who, seek
ing and obtaining safety on the pretext
of being peaceful citizens, steal out in
rear of the army, attack and murder
straggling soldiers, molest trains of sap-
plies, destroy railroads, telegraph lines,
and bridges, and commit outrages dis
graceful to civilized people and revolt
ing to humanity. Evil disposed per
sons in rear of our armies who do not
themselves engage directly in these law
less acts, encourage them by refusing
to interfere or to give any information by
which such acts can bu prevented or the
per ttrators punished. Tho safety of

They must understand distinctly, that
the security of travel is the only warrant
of personal safety

living within eight miles of the spot shall
be turned out en tna' to repair the dam

The N. tX corresjudoiit of the New,

of the pvrfeTinancrs, gymnastic, pugilistic
and linguistic!, of a New Orleans rebel
in petticoats :
On last Tuesday w e had quite an excit
ing time on the streets. A young woman
named Hannah Larue took it info her
pretty little head to pier on Canal
street, opposite Ihe Provost Marshal's of
fice, wearing a seresh flag on her bosom
and to cheer for "Jeff," and to distribute
slips of paper, on which was printed that

men, had een raptuid, and his army
THE Aniil ST.
Such conduct, tending t incite a riot,
and a crowd beginning li gather, Lieut.
Ed. J. Noyes, Passport officer, concluded
to arrest her. lie took detective Harney
Williams, and placed her iu his custody,
and ordered an orderly to accompany
them to the City Hall. As they passed
through St. Charles street, Mrs. Larue
screamed, and several hundred persons
followed. Juntas boy reached Leeds'
shoe store, a little above Canal street, a
man rushed out of the store and attempt
ed a rescue. He knocked Williams down,
and struck the orderly with a club ; the
orderly drew his pistol, but just then
another police officer came up and fired
at the man with the club, inflicting a
woudd in his left breast, tho wounded
man took to his heels aud has not yet
been caught. During the melee Mrs.
Larue escaped, but was soon again secur
ed. After thof'ght was all over, Williams
ran like a good fellow, crying murder.
He is to be dismissed the service,
SUE WAS BROUGHT BEV0BE TIIE MILITARY?
Arrived at tho City Hall, Mrs. Larue,
on seeing General Shepley, threw a
handful of her slips of paper in his face,
but on being in formed by his orderly
that she had insulted the Governor of
Louisiana, she begged his pardon, say
ing, "I have heard that you are a gen
tlemen." In the meantime she indulged
in very highly seasoned language, in
which profanity was an important in
gredient, about President Lincoln, and
other distinguished Union officers. By
this time a great crowd had collected
outsido the building. Lieutenant A G.
Bowles, Aid-de-Camp, went out and or
dered two cavalrymen to draw their sa
bres and clear the sidewalk. The crowd
fell back instantly before these two
itieces of cold steel. In a few minutes
wieut. Noyes took the rebellious little
woman in a carritge and carried her
down to Gen. Butter. During the rido
she favored Mr. Noyes with a volley of
secession sentiments, anil linallT relieved
herself by breaking off tho handle of
her elegant fau, and throwing it in his
TRE LAIiT's HUSBAND ARRESTED BOTH
BltoriiHT BfTORE GENERAL BUTLER.
Her husband was also brought before
Central Butler. At headquarters Mrs.
Larue behaved in the most defiant man
ner, making mouths and scowling at the
General in an intense style. Ho told her
that that kind of thing would not affect
him in the least, and that if she bit her
lip till the blood run it wouldn't trouble
him. She then turned her head as far
away from him as sho could, with Ihe
most superb expression of scorn on her
face, and occasionally uttered treasona
ble languago and threatened General But
ler. She was particularly anxious that
bo should ro.uember that Beauregard
would hear of her martyrdom. Her hus
band stated that he had repeatedly warn
ed her against expressions of hatred to
wards United States ollicersand soldiers.
The General issued an order sending her
to .Ship Island. Larue, begged to be al
lowed to go in her place, but General
Butler didn't believe iu vicarious pun
ishment. He asked Larue his business.
tie stated that he was a sporting man.
eueral Butler told him that gambling
was vagrancy in the eyes of tho law, and
that he should semi bun to the parish
prison until further orders.
JI11S. LAM E WAS "(IAMB" TO TIIE LAST,
and declared that she fell badly only for
her husband. She is only about twenty
years old, and is very pretty, and it was
distressing l see a Tounir creature, so
calculated to adorn society, conducting
herself so disgracefully, Larue wished
to send to a Brooklyn minister (Mr. Van
Dick, I think) for a cirtilicato of their
man i age, from w hich I concluded they
are from New York. The following is
tho order for their punishment :

comprises all the Slates on the Other side
of the Mississippi, north of Arkansas.
The Iowa, Minnesota, Kansas, Nebraska,
and Colorado delegations here, and Frank
Blair, of Missouri, were among those who
favord his appointment. The other Mis
wourians here preferred Judge Brodhead,
of that State. Judge Miller is a Ken

of eiiiancipaiion with Cassius M. Clay
and is a thorough Republican. He is
forty-six years of age, reputed the liest
lawyer in his Slate, and possesses great
physical vigor. He was formerly the

now commanding a regiment from Itwa.
No appointment was mads in the other

seo soldiers on tho forage for water. 1 ne
goes from a group of twenty or more, and
lakes the canteens of all the rest with
the understood arrangement that on other
occasions another of the twenty aro to
carry his; and so he goes loaded, and
wanders and hunts. Sometimes be bor
rows a mule, for the distance is often,
considerable miles, evenand sits down
by the spring or brook, dips his water iu
a tin cup aud patiently pours it into Ihe
narrow neck of a eanteeu. Thus he fills
his twenty; and I have seen him at this
at times whin I thought there was a
great deal of pathos iu (he picture. Oc
casionally, at the conclusion of a march,
the soldier will happen on a well, with
its cool, clear water from a gnat depth.
But then hn supply bus tin early limit.

and he puts a guard on the well. Let
none come between the water and Lis
