Sow wo Ml (hew pen tldiicn that if they sympathize with traitors, to avow themselves traitor and rcefiioiiisl$, and not attempt to pus themselves for Union men. JiverylKxly can hcc the wolf tail and jiaws peering from tinder the fox's akin. No man is n Union man who ia not for the enforce ment of but h civil and military law itfraimt traitors. Treason has cost thousands of loyal Tctincsseenns their horses, and why should not, the rebels of Tennessee forfeit their horses to the army of the United States, which conies as the aven ger of our persecuted loyalixts? Treason has laid waste the crops of loyal Ten- nesseeans and reduced them to the crge of starvation, and why should not trait ors forfeit their corn, hay, and went to our brave soldiers who nie on half rations? Treason has fired the homes of loyal Tennesseans, and desolated their farms, and why should not the Federal f.'overn merit confiscate the houses and planta tions of the wealthy rebels of Nashville and Middlo Tennessee nnd sell them at a low price to impoverished patriots, and appropriate the proceeds to the pay ment of the enormous debt which rebel lion and treason have brought upon our once prosperous and happy and peaceful country ? Why intercede then, yun pro A:iitil Union men, for rebels? They have chosen their bed deliberately, and now let them sleep on it though it prove to be made of thorns and thistles, and i in Tested with serpents whose sting ' ;'ihi'.vni.rii.- n'l Uu- wi run .!

You arc not acting the part of humane men, for your ostentatious kindness to rebels is all at thf www th ue nnd xoJijof Iheloyul, and imvc? o' tl? (iiivrumnJI. You nre trying to be liberal with other people s money, inn are slipping your hands into our pockets to give alms It on r foes. Stop, then, your ill-timed nmf mischievous pleas for rebels, or if you will not, then get out of our inks and take your worthless carcass where your heart Is already, with (he foes of tni dom and the Kcinihlic. hy is It? W hy, we ask, is il that merchant, gro cers and other dealers, who aie notorious ly disloyal, are allowed to do business in this city to the great injury of the Ted eral (foveriiment, and a No to the itclri ment of the busiuct oT loyal men lio are engaged in business? The rebels spot nil loyal merchants and shop-keeps, and patroiiid those who are of their own faith; so that it is really iirolilal.lo to he a rebel and traitor in this place. Do our authorities mean to oiler a premium to disloyalty? It is just what they are doing, whether they mean it or not. The thousand tongues ot rimmr till the city willi vague conjectures of im pending battles, of assaults, of bom bardments, of di spel ate i hargis, until a moderately lively fancy can almost lead one to ima.'iiic that he hears the " thunder of the captains and the si t- ing."' Well, the patriot hosts stand to day under the same glorious Union (lug which their fathers bore in former days, and they are as ready, aye, as eager to meet the cohorts of treason, under the black tlag of treason and rebellion, whether they lie led by llraiv.or Hardee, or l'illow, as their lathers were to face the Hessians, or 1'aekeiiham's legions We have no apprehensions id' the result when the rontlict comes.

You have been iii-lrumental in fui tiling guerrilla band'!, in getting aims, and clothes, and horses for them. You hate induced young men to join these Marauders: yon have induced married men to desert their families for the pur- po-cof ravaging the country. You have been accessary to erjry species of crime.

Ah! but yon hate encouraged the rebel lion by sympathizing with it, by rejoic ing in its successes, by turning coldly on loyal men, and saying no friendly word for the Union and this is all base trea son. They who encourage traitors are traitors tl icmselves. Had il not been for your baseness and iuiiiuiiy. Nashville would to-day be prosperous in business, and her poor would not be paying twenty dollars per cord for wood, and fifty cents per pound for butler, and like piices for the iiecess.ii ies of life.

The fust nn buried corpse stared out from the shelter of ail oak tree; but tho resemblance to man had been well-nigh obliterated. The arms were throw u elencbedly back and the chin raised, with tho It minus and thews of Ihe tluoal bare and black. The ! eyes bail bulged through their upeilurcs iu Ihe llesh, distended to the size of eggs, and the hair lay long, tangled, and mat ted with blood, oter a forehead blue and yellow by exposure and hastening cor ruption. hat more may have been re marked il is useless to say, save that no imagination of death vt as half so terr ible.

A few ollieers Were noted, but the tinsel shoulder straps were rusty and discolored, and they looked like common day. I noticed one stalwart fellow who had fallen w ith his musket tightly gripped to his side, as if he had fillen at shoulder arms. Some seem to have died irresolutely, and the terror had petrilied in their visages ; bid Ihe pre dominant expression was one of w rath, caused, perhaps, by the loss of some tried comrade who hail fallen previously. -V few looked placid, though llu ir features were distorted, arrd all were so swollen that they compared in size with the dead horses adjacent. The bodies of these arc lifted by their comrades and deposited iu t renches, w ith out coflin or heiulslone. Occasionally the practical sexton discovers some old friend, honors him with a special grave, and ipriclly makes n note ot bis resting place for future exigency. All of our dead, so far as I saw or heard, had been' plundered of their money, irrins, and in some cases of their clothing. I think that we may have had a hundred ami fifty dead. I found (hem grouped in the edges of Hie woods, in one case twenty two together. Several of these appeared lo be killed by fragments of du lls, and one man's head was missing, in curious juxtaposition to these ghostly objects, J saw an old-fashioned plough that had been struck by solid shot and broken in half.

Light .N'oilii Carolinians lay iu a row by a fragment of Ictici stout, stalwart rustics in home spun clothes who had pel haps been drag ged as conscripts from their homes to perish in an unholy cause. A lew of our grate diggers had mingled with the rebel grave diggers, nnd both had suspended their functions b hold nn argument. The Lieutenant ordered tho l'cderals into Iheir ow n lines, and prevented, it may he, a miniature battle among the dispu tants. 1 must say for m y conductor tli.it he had a frank face and a fair iniinn. r, a goodly Mingling of the polite citizen with the stern soldier. We rode into a piece of wood not half a mile from Slaughter's Mountain, and beheld Ihe spot where I ruon nnd rebel bad tugeed and limited face to face, pirrying and thrusting w ilii cold sled. Sumo of the rebels seemed lo hate edged over lo our lines anil fell among our men, w hi!e some of the I nionists were quite turned around and lay in a bevy of Iheir enemie '. The rebels claim lo have blow n up several cai.-sorn loll, hi hind us on Saturday eve ning, and to have picked up more than two thousand urns, with upwards of ri' ty horses.

I lure was a Major llintham of Missis- ! sippi, who gave me much curious in for- j lualion as to Ihe rebel uniforms. Their' rank, it seems, is determined by g .1.1 lace upon the sleeves and gold bai j upon the collar. Their uniforms indicate a regard lor ornament rather than good taste. My friend, for example, Were a gold star upon a blat k velvet ground, and had, furthermore, a gold cm d and golden t.issd pendant from his bat. He i wore, furthermore, a gn at ostrich fealh- J er, I hat made him look like pictures of Stharnyl. One of their siiige.uis tt as inlet rogated I by Dr. I'all as t.. why they had repeat- ! edly fired inlo hosjiitals and ambulances f Ihe day before. He replied that Hu.y did not reeogriie the red Hag as a hospital ' emblem, having t hemsdtcs always adopt - j ed Ihe yellow Hag, When aked why! sonic particular color might riot lie' adopted lor tnht hghts at hospitals, he slated that the South had not chrttiieal materials to slain the'gla-s. In regard lo Gen. Vope'a order and Jell.

His bor.se was a blooded one, arrd he rode easily, so that I saw at a glance his position of General of Cavalry. 'Ar you making a sketch of our po sition'" said the General to me, curtly . .tor tor any military piuposi replied; "merely for reierence." Fit. Are you a reporter'.' Yes, sir-.'' ''You may go on." Tli in was General Stewart, whose achievements rival Ashby's and Morgan's. It was he wlm made the famous raid, willi four regiments, around General Mc Clellan's army a w ick before the bloody battles of lliehtniuid. Adverting In his insigniss of olliee, the General, in ca-ut convfrsaiion, spoke of tiis equipments. 'Thin bridle, saitl he, boyishly, ''was made iu llngland, ami sent to tiie from Iriends across Ihe water. My saddle was shipped by indergrouml from a rebel wonian of llaliiniore. We will make all these tilings ourselves after a while.'' Keterring to our cavalry, Gen, Stewart said that Yirginia had ihe best cavalry in the world, as her men were born ri ders, lie complimented Koch's Lancers, of our service, and Iho fifth l'egulnr Cav alry the hitler for a heroic charge at (faines' Mill, lie ami General llarlmiil' had been old s, l.oolinales, uml accosted each other rather cmbarrassedl y : ' llow tire you, llarlsuH'.'''
