This portion of Middle Tennessee Is tu a more unsettled
condition yiuu it has been since tbo war commenced. The
contrast between tho state of things at the present time
and two months ago is very marked. Tho secessionists
have become so bold and rampant that Goneral Nogley
has at last determined to put on the screws, and inaui<(
Test the power of the government in a way thai it shall
bo felt. A number of prominent secessionists have b"cu
arrested and sent both North and South. The poopiu of
the North aro mistaken If they suppose that even this
course will stop the spread of rebellious sentiments. I
have to-day seen and conversed with representatives
from some hair dozen counties, dispassionate and reliablo
men. They toll me that seccmouism now, In tbelr lo
calities, as compared with six months ago, is as if such a
heresy were never before known. Gangs of guerillas
are formed by districts, or townships. Bach dis.
trict is expected to furnish its quota of armed
horseman, and concentrate at certain points
at given poriods. They are also expected to
commit such depredations as may he calculated to cripple
the enemy or annoy the friends of the government upon
any and every favorable opportunity. Two days ago two
guerillas stopped a lead of cetton within six or seven
miles of Columbia, near the residenco of a Dr. Nichols,
cut the cordage, spread the cotton out and burned it. Tho
niuno of one of these cotton buruers is Frierson. Steps
havo been taken to capture both hlmsolf and his accom
plice. llie cotton ? belonged to a Union citizen named
Emery. This is but one ol many similar maraudiug acts
continually occurring. The cry is, "Why not sweep out
these marauders?" It Is an old adage that a new broom
sweeps cican; but it is hardly expected that a command
iug oilkor will be able to do much ''sweeping out" whon
ho has no broom at all, or but the poor remnant of ono at
best. On Friday night Ust Captain Green, a good oUlcer
of tho First Tonnosseo regimont, camo up here with a
forco of somo tweuty six Pennsylvania Seventh cavalry
for tbo purpose of penetrating into tho interior of somo of
the counties hereabouts and protecting tho operations of
Cntoa recruiting officers. At nine In the evening ho gal
loped through the place, and in an hour or two afterwards
General Ncfalt>y rec^.ved a message from Captain Greeu,
asking for roluforucments, as tho oneuay was bclVro him

Last Thursday, Captain Jullien, a Union free-fighter of
Columbia, loft with a small force of horsemen to capture
or disperse a band of guerillas near Bigbyville. The
force wan divided luto small squads. They took different
roads, expecting to surprise tho enemy. Jull leu's horse
was the fastest, two or three (others were ,able to keep
near him, when a party'of hall'a dozen guorillas wero
ospied on the road. Chase was given. Away they flow
at full gallop for three miles, Jullien's frieuds far behind,
and Julllon himself at the heels of the foe. Ho flred hib'
revolvers several times, wounding one guerilla in tlio lea,,
aud killing a horse. The guerillas SUCOeed*d in flndlug
refuge in a barn, and they commenced blazing away at
JuUien, who wai uow entirely alone, having fix outridden
hi* friouds, and was the only mark for the enemy.

wounded, and the rldor, dismounted, crawled on bis hands
and kneos into the brushwood, and escaped. Jullien's
party then returned with one rebel horso as a trophy

shoulder. His name is John K. Reynolds, Kentucky

G> ueral Negloy Is carrying out, in a practical way, the
spirit of the order to make the rebels pay lor tho proiierty
of the loyalists they seize or destroy. We overhauled a
number of rehols the other day. They may have been
guerillas; but there was no more proof of the fact than
there wag that Jean Vahean, the accused In ''Lea
Mtaarables," was the real Jean Valjeaa, the galley slave,
Ui the person of the worthy and respected Mayor
of M? stir M ; that is, ft depended upon their own
confession, l'roof satisfactory was furnished that the
party before him were rebels. The projierty of a widow,
a Union lady, had been seized and appropriated a few
nights before by the rebels. The damage waa not very
largo, but sufficient to distress deeply tne poor widow.
Oeneral Negley selected the richest among those before
him, and said:?"1 require yon to taxe the oath
not to take up arms against the govemmeut of
tho United States." The defendant demurred. He was
assured that arrest and imprisonment would be his lot
unless ho did so. "Now," said the General, "I require
you to give bonds in $5,000 that you will not forfeit your
oath." That was furnished after some hesitation aud no
little difficulty. - And now," continued the General, "1
require you te pay in cash the sum of $200 as indemnity
to the widow, who has sufl'ered in loss of property to that
amount by the depredations of the guerillas in this dis
Uriel." After some expostulai ion the money was finally
l?ld and the poor widow indemnified for the depreda
tions of the marauders.
We have a story hero from Nashville wliloh Is likely to
be t ruo. A rich old geullemun, natned Van I. , hear
ing i bat ceiiuin prominent secession property holders had
taken tho oath of allegiance rather than incur tho dangers
of ti ausjiortation and confiscation, coududed he would
screen himself and his property under the .same shield,
without comprehending exactly what It all meant, lie
did Lot know but that siguiug tho oath was likn joining
sowo political association, .lust bonne be did 60 he called
u|k>u Colonel McN and said, '? Well, Colonel, as you've
jiced I guess I'll jine, too." And ho "jtned."
A sucestsiotlist here is uuttied Kim. Orr. He had a pet
lamb, and il was by universalcousent called ??dam. Orr."
A wicked feiUrul soldier, inoro hungry tha'i humane,
thought the lamb would ui'ikj a good moa'; thereupon he
shot iho poor lamb first and then proceeded to cut its
throat. This horrify mg act was witnessed by a youthrul
Nubian, who proceeded lu ail haute lo a gossippiug female
neighbor, and, almost out of breath, proclaimed that "A
led. i.oldier hab shot Sam. Orr, and cut his t'roat."
"Good l.ud, and gracious 8-ive us," exclaimed tho oxclted
matron. Aud without waiting further explanation she
stai tod at once for the house oi a friend and related the
aad tidings. "Poor Saiftwell Orr is no more,'' they criod,
with mure rhyme than reason. Dr. Frier son was sent
for tat town in extra uiule haste. Dr. Friorson, always
on tho alert to relievo distressed humanity,
soon as he had heard the sad tidings,
thought that while there was life there was hope,
and, armed with packages of bauda.es and lint and
instruments, mouuted his horse, and was s'>on at tho
1 house >/f tho supposed assassinated Sam orr. When it
was discovered that it w as only a sheep that b id suc
cumbed to the soldier's throat disease, even llie sober
l citizens of Columbia could not realst a smile.
i These are a few of the humors of the campaign, and
I they are told at times, when conversations like these oc
cur.?"General, 1 have planted the batteries as you di
rected, but there aio two or threo houses lu range." The
'General did not reply at tho momout. A prominent citi
zen, however, did. He said:?"Let, them take their housos
out of the way." That was toward midnight, and an at
tack was apprehended. Columbia is yet safe.

Chakles Kkxsstb Mackkmzh, a gentleman who bad con.
trlbuted largely to literature, and waa at the time of the
disaster a boarder at tbe Rainbow Hotel. We learn that
tbe late Mr. Charles Kenneth Mackenzie, who has thus
miserably perished, In tbe seventy-fifth year of his age,
was a Scottish gentloman of good family and conoeotlons.
He waa a ripe scholar and an exoellent linguist, with
greut versatile literary attainments, having been a
contributor, In his early years, to both tbe EdinOurg
and Quarterly Reviews, and tbe Encyclopedia Britan
nica; having, also, at a later period, been the lead
ing writer of editorials for one of tbe London dailv con
servative Journals. Ho was a doctor, as well of law a?
of modiclno, and Fellow of the Royal Society. In 1823,
when commissioner* wore seut by Mr. Cauniug to Mexico,
on tho recognition of the independence of that couutry,
Mr. Mackenzie accompanied them, and was api>oiuled bis

LIKl'TKNANT C. STUART WEBSTER.
Lieutenant I. Stuart Webster, of the Fifteenth New
York Volunteers, who died at New Haven on Saturday,
was well known in this city, whoro he wv engaged in the
insurance agency business at tho tlmo the war broke out.
He was a grandson of the great lexicographer, Nouh
Webster, and a great grandson through his {mother, who
waa a Cuatls, of Martha Washington. Uno who know him
well, describes Lieutenant Webster as having been a man
of fine attainments, of great energy jot character, brave
almost to recklersr.ess, and yot in bis social habits as
gentle and winning an a child. His qualifi
cations as a civil englneor were of a superior
trade, and it was largely owing to his skill and
sleepless energy that the ChTckahumlny was spanned by
those half dozen bridges over whieh our army passed on
their way toward Richmond.
In all tho land engineering work that preceded tbe
:anions seven day*' battle, as well hs in tbe terrible work
of tho battlo Itself, Lieutenant Welter sustained his lull
share "and although he escaped wounds on theftold.ho
nevertheless, through cons;ant exposures, night und day
oo< the*battle field, contracted the disease whioh resulted
in his d*alh. ,?
It is worthy of notice n? a melancholy coincidence that
Eugeno Webster, tho eldor brother of Lieutenant W ., par
ticipated in the same battle, but on the opposite side, ho
being h member of tbe reb^l General Lee's staff. Kugene,
?s is already known, was killed in that battle. He wad a
k r adnata of West Puint, and joined a regiment of RkJi
ii. -nd at tbe.time tho war commenced. The two brothers
were the only children of Win. G. Webster, of New
Haven.

colored man dragged down stairs; three or four had hold
ot the man; witness rescued tbe negro, and was struck
with a brick; received no injury; discovered smoke com
ing from aomo i>ait of tbe iuterior of tbe factory, and
found the plaoo had been actually flred; witness extin

found about twenty colored people, some haif dozen of
whom wore men. the rest women, koiuo of the men were
bleeding; one h.ul a split head and another a spilt lip;
bricks wero coming through the windows preltly briskly;
