It has long been a source of infinite pleasure to me that the officers and men of the .jd regiment of loyal hast ieu- nesseeans, have always been ready to second any effort of ray own to promote our common interests, as soldiers lighting in defence of an invaluable country, and the most cherished institutions ever de vised for llie enjoyment of man. 1 have otten had occasion to express my satisfaction, that, whilo in some regi inents the uMnost harmony did not at ail times prevail, in tho one 1 have the honor to command, the most pci lcct good feel ing and social friendship has ever existed among all grades, and between every rank. My health has long been ftich that neither tou nor I could tell when I would be forced to sever my ollicial con nection with you. NVhen I have contemplated such con tingency, it Las been with emut'ous which I iinaghi ' hie" near akin to those experienced by Moses when he bid adieu to the children of Israel, whom he had lead forty years, and started op the mountain on which he had to d. In accepting this sword, you will per mit mo to say, that I hope, always to draw it through, patriotic motives, and never ahcath it in disgrace ! And, looking tu the character of those who have honored me with this presen tation, as rellected from tliw Rnuke of battle at London, lig Hill, lUchniond, and l'erryville, Ky., I am compelled to declare, that, if dishonor should ever fall upon their present, while 1 am leading 1 hem, the blame will bu mine, and the shame ehimld rest on me alone. 1 have fiii 111 in (Jed, and a eLerislied hope in my l.eart, that the great l;ee of Liberty, planted by our fulluis, now being watered by the blond of the patri- j oU of the nation, for ti e defence of hieh ' Mumford, the New Orleans . and Rebel- Jeff. Davis, moved, doubtless, by that fellow feeling which makes scoundrels as well as good men admire each other, and binds them in eternal friendship, in his Anti-Batler proclamation of the 23d of December, says, that "William B. Mum- Kor.D, a citizen of the Confederacy, was actually and publicly executed in cold blood by hanging." Of this fact he de clares he has indubitable testimony, and he therefore pronounces Butler felon, who is to be hung whenever he shall be captured. In addition to this, Mr. HiCH ard Yeadon, editor of the Charleston (S. C.) Courier, publishes tho following ad vertisement in his paper i Teh Thousand Dollars Kewaro. $10,000. President Davis having, pro claimed Benjamin F. Butler, of Massa chusetts, to bo a felon, deserving of capi tal punishment, for the deliberate murdtr of William B. Mumford, a citizen of the Confederacy, at Iscw Orleans, and having, for that and other outrages and atroci ties, pronounced the said Benjamin F. Butler an outlaw and common enemy of mankind, and authorized, in tho event of bis capture, the officer in command of the capturing force ro cause him to be imme diately executed by hanging, the under signed hereby oilers a reward of ten thousand dollars ($10,000) for tho cap lure of the said Benjamin K. Butler, dead or alive, td any proper Confederate au thority. Bicuari) Ykahon. Charleston, Dec. 2'J, 1802. Gt. It will be noticed that Mr. Yeadon or ders this bloodthii'st y advertisement to be inserted six times. In another column of the same paper we find that Mr. Yea don s assassiu is ready but he wants more money, llie comments are the Courier s. We find in the Winchester (Tenn.) Bulletin- the following curious advertise ment, which we are assured is genuine : " I understand iO 000 is oilered as a reward to whoever will kill the beast Butler, of New Orleans. I accept the offer, and require $2.",00 f irfeit, to bo placed in some good hands. When I ac complish the noble deed, I am to be paid the reward. My name can be found when desired by the proper persons." 1 bis is dated " incbester, lenn., .No vember 2." Shall it go begging? Nothing proves the great dearth of materials for the manufacture of heroes and martyrs in the Confederacy, than the foolish rant of Davis and Y'eadon about the execution of a creature who for years has been the fellow of the Thugs and brass-nuck ruffians of New Orleans. His real character and otVnce, and the dangerous character of the ruffians of whom he was tho ringleader, are cor rectly described in the following remarks made by General Butler, at his reception in Philadelphia : You have been pleased to allude to an act of - Lih executive responsibility, whkbin the performance of duty, be came a powerful necessity, and that is the execution of William B. Mumford. Applause. Owing to the teiuia in which the so-called Confederate Govern ment chose to demand from my (itvern mcnt au account of that act, it was ren dered impossible that any explanation or report ever could be made. Having by their oll'ensive language cut oil all possi ble Government communication on the subject, it was asguiued llir.t some wrong wa done, and the proclamation which you have doubtless all seen has been is sued as a consequence. Perhaps it may not be indelicate were I for a nu nient to apeak of that act. On the 2rUh of Apiil. if I llie so, and would not bo interfered with in that act. Accordingly, on the next morn ing, the Hag of the United States was raised over the Mint the property of the United States. After flying a short time, a mob, headed by a drunken gambler, in the presence of the fleet, in broad day light, tore down the symbol of our na tionality, that we ali reverence, and dragged it, with, infamous outrage, through tho ttreclg, tramping upon it and fearing it in pieces, after which each went his way. j That act, in. its consequences, might have been most calamitous. Ihe com mander of the Federal fleet and the army then coming up the river, had a right to suppose that the city authorities had come to the conclusion to renew the con test, and the evident of thitt renewal was the hauling down of the Hag. Ihe commander of the fleet had no means of knowing that this was done by mob, and the act might and ought as a military proposition, to have brought down npon the city an lastant bombardmcut But, through the very proper prccau tiou of Commander Farrago t, but a shot or two were fired, and no resistance fol lowing, no special damage was done, it resulting in the wounding of a single per son. But, mark you, sir, it was not the fault of Mumford that New Orleans was not laid in ashes, and tho women and children crushed beueath the 'shells of the Federal licet. We were about taking other towns and cities on the Mississippi river. If every drunken rullian, by tear in, by tearing down our flag, could bring bombardment on every city along the Mississippi river, thero was no safety to tho non-combatants from tho operations of war, nor in the surrender of places ; and it was in mercy to the towns that wn should take hereafter, and their in habitants, that I felt it necessary to pun ish, according to the just laws of war, after a fair trial and full confession of guilt, Wm. B. Mumford. To save hu man life, and ameliorate the horrors of war, it became necessary exemplarily to punish this crime. I have a right to say hero that, in no unauthorized man ner, in the Department of tlx Gulf, has any other flag of tho nation been taken from tho place where it has been put bv loyal hands. Loud applause. And whether rightfully or wrongfully done, that act still commends itself to my judgment. More applause. And seeing the utter worthlessness of the man that treason has attempted to exalt into a patriot, I was inclined to spare Mumford, but that was not permit ted to me. Hitt aoauciates, the Thugs, rough, rowdies, gamblers, assembled in New Orleans on the night before his ex edition, and solemnly voted that Mum ford should not be executed. It then became a question whether the mob should rule New Orleans as it bad done for fifteen years previously, or tho com- munding General of the United Hlates forces. Lonir applause. From that day, however, there has never been any question on that subject. Laughter and applause. J I have been betrajed info saying very different things from what I intended. It was my simple purpose to thank you for the kindness with which you have sustained mo, and to add my congratu lations to you and the country for the avalanche of victories that is now How inc: upon us. Applause. .1 look upon the campaign in tho Southwest as now substantially ended. The dan of the rebels in that campaign was undoubtedly to concentrate their forces upon Hose crstis, and after having routed him, to fall with greater concentration upon Grant, and overwhelm him, rclievevicks burg, and attempt, perhaps, to regaiu rnew Orleans. But it is the first step that costs; and the first blow to conquer Ilosecrans hav ing failcdP I do not think we will have anything to fear in the Southwest. 1 think we have net yet sufficiently appre ciated the services of that brave and no ble soldier, liosccrans, and what he has accomplished by the battle of Murfreea boro'. Applause. If there is any thing iu the world a man might desire, it is bis fame, nobly won on the lield of baltle, even in the face of defeat. tho civil emigrating party to Cuba is, by reports, now over 2i,000. Of this num ber about 7,000 or 8,000 s re ready to ' move for Cuba; and as your Excellency has told m you had every confidence in me, and you, tho Hon. JMr. Thompson, have assured me that the Federal otllcera of New Orleans and Mobilo would be in structed to "let me and my emigrant friends pass." I now very respectfully request that you place in the hands of our mutual friends, Mr. C. Gallaway and - r a sm . . . . . v. At. campuew, or the "Memphis Avn htncht,'' your most faithful supporters, the necessary passports for my bonont, and the sum of $10,000 secret service funds for the use and benefit of v those editors as above in supporting your cause in acquiring Cuba by civil emigra tion, and with the use of that amount they will be enabled earnestly and effec tually to co-operate with you for the ac complishment of that great object. Tbe political position of the "Avalanche," as a true Democratic Administration paper, enables that paper to wield the necessa ry influence in successfully accomplish ing the acquisition of Cuba before the termination of the present Administra tion, and the political aspect now loudly calls for it. e Although this proposition is made to you without the knowledge of those gen tlemen, I know from conversations with, them that their feelings are deeply inter ested in the success of this great object, and they are ready to act whenever they are placed in possession of the means to do so, and without those means I sm in clined to believe that they are powerless to do anything. I shall, therefore, be pleased to have you place in the hands of M. C. Gallaway the necessary passports for me, and place in tho hands of C. M. Campbell $10,00 for the support of the Cuban cause. This you can do by special agent, or by forwarding to me a check for that amount for their bo tie fit. I had contemplated leaving here by the 101 li instant, but preparatory arrange ments will prevent my leaving before the loth of rovetnber. Iherefm-e, your de spatches will reach me here, and, while I . awtit your reply, you will easily appre ciate my anxiety to hear from as early S may l your pleasure and convenience.

The arduous duties and tedious, details of his tiSRcia! labors, when Assistant Adjutant-General in, the War Department, never made him forgetful of urbanity of manner, gentle ness of speech, and readiness to listen patiently to any one who rightfully claimed bis help.
