The Republican says it will take several weeks to repair the damages at a time when the road is taxed to its utmost ca pacity. It also states that the Yankee raid, which extended over a space of nearly a hundred miles, was one of un expected daring and audacity. The above account looks bad for the rebels, and they have made it as light as they could for the sake of not disheart ening the deluded followers of their cause; but bad as they make it out to be, they have not Riven even a tithe of the true state of aunirs. But what are the precise facte of the case; Tlie aiiarr is oi far more serious consequence to the relxils than a mere destruction of about nino miles of rail road. Nearly all the bridges between Knoxville and the Virginia .State line a distance oT l i miles have been de stroyed, and the track more or less in jured. So combined was the movement that the whole allair was completed in a comparatively short space of time, and, as the rebels express it, the line wa9 so much injured " that it will take several weeks to repair tho damages." The plan adopted is developed by the results. Emm tho 'facta wo have wo know that two bodies of Union troops, bel'-nuing to General Granger's army of Kentucky, lelt Kichmond, Kj., shortly alter Christmas, on an unknown expe dition. It now appears that one pnriion tif thi so fori.'es took the left hand road running south from that place, and, liassitig by Manchester, reaiiu d Mount 1'leaHRiit. Thence it took the road over the TiMiiitif ains to Jom-sville, and passing through that place and r-sulville, struck tho railroad at Union, a station situated about eleven miles from Iiristol, which is near the iSlate line between V irginia and Tennessee. At this point the work of destruc'ion was commenced. Tho tele graph linos to Kichmond, Virginia, were first cut to prevent tho rebel chiefs at their capital from knowing anything of what was going on beyond that point. They next dashed on the line as far as Bristol, ell'ectually destroying the railroad track as they went, and as they fell back burned tho bridges over tho streams. Arriving at tho point where the railroad crosses the Ilolston and Watauga rivers, the Union troops burned those bridges and beyond that point the rtbcla give no information. The telegraphic lines hav ing been, as we have before stated, en tirely destroyed west of Bristol, of course tho rebels could learn notions: bevond that point by telegraph nor by courier beyond where the principal bridges bad been burned. As the distance. between tho west side of thoo bridges and Bris tol was not over a dozen miles, a horse man might easily ride lo the latter place and give such information as ho could havo learned, and Ihu same could have beeu telegraphed to Lynchburg and Uiuh Ill-Hid. We, however, are enabled to supply tho deficiency After ct ossing the river, and passing Latter depot, tho Union troops pushed on to Jonesboro, thence to Green ville and Bull's Gap, now known as Bogersvillo Junction, altogether a dis tance of over seventy miles, at the baine timo destroying all they could during their movements in the way of bridges 1 1 est lo work, &.o., along that line. This ended the line of operations of the column on tho left. The other column left Richmond. Kv by one of the roads running South, and struck the Cumberland Mountains at a point nearer Cumberland Gap and far ther to the went of that taken by their colleagues. They next proceeded to thu .Stalo line, and, crossing the Clinch river, followed tho turnpike road to Koerrevillc. It was planned that this column should arrive at this point about midnight, at which hour a train of curs was generally at Ihe station. Rogi'i'vitiu is a place nf but small im portance, and contained I ut lew inhabi tants, who were easily secured ami pre vented froia giving nv ftlanu. -This branch 1 1' tlio ra Irnud was u!mi of ni'-io loi'.il US..', and C'lllit'cted with the IIKtili 1 1 in a I B ill's Gap, r R -t ,-vi! !o .liu lion. Tlie ll u i ; 1 1 l.i'iu I t In! Iiain :il liu' Mai i n as had lu .-u eii.m oi ii and mh.ii ' g it u iilcr st ay. Having sw itched nil" ' at i'.ill.'s Gap, llw-y tiiiiied kljtig that main line in a westerly direction until they arrived at .Strawberry 1'laina, with in a few miles of Knoxville. All this was done in a few hours, and then the work of destruction commenced on the right. Tho track was torn up and a bridge destroyed just east of Strawberry Plains, and other work of destruction was per formed as they wendud their w ay back to the junction. Between New Market and Moiristown a long piece of trestle work, over half a mile in extent, was to tally destroyed, and near Kusselrillo an other bridge met the same fato as its neighbors. Thus ihey fell back, destroy ing as they went, until they again reached the Krgersville junction, at Bull's Gap, where they met with their friends who had been operating on the eastern part of the road. It will be seen that the operation extended within a few mi Us of the whole length of the line, and de stroying th travei of greatly over a hun- area miles in extent. . A large forco of troops had been sent by this route to reinforce Geueral Bragg, and this operation completely cut oil' their chance of reaching Murfreesboro by the Tennessee line. The Lynchburg Republican states that at the present time "ihe road is taxed to its utmost ca pacity." The break, 89 extensive in its character, must have been disastrous to their arms, especially so when it is ta ken into consideration that these troops from the rebel capital were wanted to aid in the resistance offered to Gen. Rose crans' march. No wonder, then, that the rebels at Murfreesboro retreated from that point. Their reinforcements had been delayed and cot off, and there was not the 'slightest chance that they could reach Murfrees boro by any other route in time to save the day. The plan is certainly a good One, and has been well carrisd out. All honor to him whe conceived it. W'ere this the only railway line from the rebel capital to Tennessee, "the effect would indeed be most disastrous to the rebel cause; for ihe communication could easily be kept broken at one or another part of tho route. , To securely guard the whole line from raids would require more men (hau tho rebels could well spare at this or any other time, and therefore tho road would never lx secure from destruction. The rebels have, how ever, other lines of communication. The line between Danville, Va., and Greens boro, N. C, has been completed, and this gives a nearly direct route from Rich mono, a., to Columbia, S. (J., via Atlan ta, da, to Chattanooga and Murfiecsboro, lenn. Another route runs via Peters burg, Va., and Raleigh, N. C, aud con nects with the same line at Greensboro If the lino from Goldshuro to Wiltuina ton should havo been repaired, a neatly direct route from Richmond, Va., to Char leston, S. (J , thence to Chattanooga and Murfreesboro. Again, by aid of tho ha vannith branch, another route is opened from the rebel capital via eldon, Golds boro, Wilmington, Charleston, aud ba vannah, thence by the Central Georgia railroad to Chattanooga and Murfrees boro. Thus it plainly appears that tho operations, splendid as they are, have not entirely cut off the supplies front tho rebels, but will only delay them by for citig them to go over a longer route of travel. However, it has done its work for the present, and lUno it welu A. I. , Capt.

Hocjghtk lino, of tho 1st 111., Artillery played a gal lant aud conspicuous part. Friend aud foe alike testify to the wonderful rapidity and effect of its movements and fire.

Tallow 'Your Leader- The following is rather a tough story of omi ancient New Yorl-rrs, whoso names are not quite obsolete : Thomas IT. Smith built an ' enormous tea store' in South street, up by Dover. It extended through to Water, and was a hundred feet wik. It was the wonder of (ho city when it wa built. The docks near it were nam ! India wharf. Smilh also built famous stores at Peith Amboy, and had bis tea ships land ear goes there. The travelers to Philadel phia by the old routo must often have wondered what, theic immense stores were doing in such an insignificant place as Perth Amboy. Thomas II. Smith, besides being the greatest tea merchant of "his day, was also the greatest 8jireeit$ ot tits aay. ne was me i resident oi a Club celled "The Tire Clnb." It held its meetings in Franklin Square, on the corner, of. Dover street.. Boys have a mode of amusement called "Follow your leader." This was adopted by tie Club of which Smilh was President. Many men who are iiw aged and re spected men, or dead, belonged to the " Fire Club," Joseph Foulke, a trader at Curacoa, a Dutch Island in the West Indies, and the Staggs. There was old.Pete r Stagg, Cashier of the City Bank and John attd Benj. Stagg. There was old Matthias Bruen, and many more whose names were on the Club list. They gave grand suppers, and their en tertainments were very expensive. They would iuvite a guest to these suppers, explain the rules, and if he refused to join, or could not carry out the idea, the one was one dozen of champagne, These fines were occasioned by a refusal to fol low the leader. On one occasion a great cotton merchant from New Orleans was a gust. He agreed to all the conditions. It was late in the evening, in the dead of winter. The ice in the East River was floating np and down with every flood or elb of the tide. " 1'ollow leader," shouled Smith, and out of the warm, luxurious club rooms ponred the mem bers of Iho Club. Out of the Square. around the corner into Dover street " Follow leader," and on rushed Smilh, the President of tUo Club, with thirty men behind him, down Dover, past Wa ter, past I rout, into South,- and thence on to tho pier. One of Smith's own ship lay at the dock. A lighter lay in- hioe or me main wnarr I lie ice was loose and dashed tip around the vessels follow leader, exclaimed Smith, as he plunged from tho dock into the water Some drew back, but others followed tho leader, w ho succeeded io get ling out of ihe ice water on to the lighter, and from I hence to tho dock; and shouting "Fol low leader," he led of! with frozen clothes, up Dover, and into the room of tho Club Plunge, plunge, plunge, one alter another. and soon until all had successfully ac complished the terrible- and dangerous feat. Ihe Southern cotton merchant was last. Soma of the regular Club members remained until they taw hint reach the dock again safely, and there they lelt him shivering. He did not remain long. As bo walked up from the dock, ho no ticed a largo store open in South street, lie entered. It was a wholesale and re tail ship store. " I have met with an ac cident give mo a glass of cognac, hot, with sugar and water." It was done, aud he drank it. "Do you keep gun powder '" he asked. Receiving an af firmative reply, t o bought and paid for half a keg, and then took his way to the Club room. At the door were standing Mr. Lowu and Mr. Town, two members cf the Club. Tho latter exclaimed. "Bravo Southern stranger you have passed the ordeal safely. You are now leader, and we arc deputed to place the Club under your command, if you choose to exert your sacred privilege. "Thanks, my friends, I shall do so, but I w ill not ask you to go out of tho room this cold night. Let us drink!" and as hu entered the room he sought a sido closet where hung his cloak. There he placed the keg, and then returned and took a seat at the long, solid mahogany table. President Smith called the club to order. The Stewards for the night open ed a dozen ol rhampago amid shouts, calls aud songs of the most stirring char acter. "Order, come to order 1" exclaim ed President Smith. When order was partially restored, he said: "Members of tho club, our guest has passed the icy ordeal. He has now the right of becom ing leader for the balance of the night, or until a failure in our sncted rites. What says he? Tho cotton merchant look from his bosom a bundle of two and laid it oo ihe table. All eyes were fixed upon Lint. ' I accept the command. I will lead now.

Giotto, intending to make a painting of (he crucifixion, induced a poor man to bo bound to- a cross, under a promise of being set at liberty in an hour, and handsomely rewarded for his pains. In stead of this, as soon as Giotto had mdu his viclim secure, he seined a dagger and slabbed him to tho heart I Ha than set about painting tho dying; agonies of tha victim to bis foul treachery. When he had finished his picture he carried it to tho Pope, who was so well pleated with it that he resolved to place it above the' altar i f his own chapel. Giotto observed, that as his holiness liked the copy so well, he might perhaps Iiko to see the original. The Pope, shocked at the impiefy or the idea, uttered an exclamation of sur prise. " I mean," added Giotto, "I will show you the person whom I employed as my model in this picture, but it must be ou condition that your holiness will absolve mo from all pun ishment for tho use which I have niido of him." Thu Pope promised Giotto the absolution for which he slip ulated, and acompanied the artist to his studio. .Ou entering, Giotto drew aside a curtain which hung before tho dead man, still sttelched on the cross, and covered with blood. The barbarous ex hibition struck the pontiff with horror; he told Giotto ho could never give him. absolution for so cruel a deed, and that he must expect to suffer tho most exem-; plary punishment. Gi t'0, with seeming; rcsUnatioitr said that be had only on favor to ask, that his holinem would give, him leave lo finish the piece before hi died. The request had too important am object to be denied; the Pope readily gran'ed i', and in tho meantime u guard was set over Giotto to prevent his escape. On tho painting being replaced in tha artist's bands, the frrst thing he did wa lo take a .brush, and dipping it into a thick varnish, lis (Unh id thu picture all over with it, and then announced that he had finished bis (ask. I lis holiness was greatly incnaed at this abuse of the inc'u genco he had given, and threatened Giotto that ho should bo put to tho most cruel death, unless ho painted another picture equal to th.ioneb had destroyed. "Of what avail is your threat," replied Giotto, "to a man whom y hi have doomed to death at any rata?" ' But,'' replied hi holiness, "1 ran revoke that doom." "Yes," continued Giotto, but you ciuiiot prevail on me to trait to your verbal promise a second." ''Von shall have pardon under my signet be fire you begin."
