From the San Antonio Herald. Trentmeut of Southern Citizens at the north. Much ns has been published in the South reb utm* to the treatment of Southerners in the North since the war began, and as extravagant in id incredible as some of these statement miiy seem to a highly refined reader, we are satis lied that ti.r acts of cruelty and despicable means ness, the code of Draco, would furnish Christian pnc pi.-, when compared to what has come uu sier our own personal observation. As an illustration we will give but one ins stance. That is the case of B. M. Henderson, Esq., formerly Sheriff of Dallas county, Texas. In iJie year 1H.V.I this gentleman came to Den V. r city, Colorado Territory; by affable manners and gentlemanly deportment, he won a host ot friends; residing there when the inquisitorial spirit of wild fanaticism passed mcontrolled over that country, he was one among the first victims whose life was sought to appease its hunger. He was arrested by order of Gov. Gil pm about the 10th of last December, confined wiih hall and chain in miserable quarters. L'ght after night when the snow was near a foot deep and the weather intensely cold, was this poor old gray headed man taken out of prison by L. F, odici is, some of whom had oft times bowed at the same holy altar of “faith, hope and charity, which even the semi-barbarous races respect; exposed to ilie cold until frozen to the knees, ami repeatedly hung until life was almost ex tinct with a view of extorting from him the names of the “Southern league." Having failci| bv the.se processes of cruelty to extort from hint the information sought thus, at last they shot him through the head while asleep in his prison. His mangled and disfigured body, unwashed anil uncoflined, was buried some t wo feet deep within the beat of the sentinels of the Fort. in this as in many other eases of assassination that has marked the history'of that people since the war began, the most strenuous effort was used to prevent a knowledge ol his death among the public. One of the Lieuts. (Mr. Buell) informed the writer of this, of the circumstances which we have related, the locality of the lodge and the names of officers who, unless they perjured thein m-Iivs, would substantiate his statement. This conversation occurred in the evening im mediately after dress parade and was supposed by us both to lie made iu the most secret mau ner. Before morning this Lieut, was himself a corpcs, having died,, very suddenly during the night. How! God and themselvs only know. From the information thus derived we were enabled to find the body which was exhumed and brought to Denver, a city of some G,000 in habitauce, and after lying in state three days in the most public position; and visited by thou sands, he was conv eyed by the “Southern league” to his quiet resting place, among the ancient and honorable; and many a southern hand quietly dropped an v'crgrctn upon the magnificent cof fin that encased the noble man, who, in spite of bodily suffering, had even unto death, refused to reveal the names of those in league. 'J ni. Nkw Hebei, Steamer “No. 21*0.”—Ac cording to tin* following statement’ furnished by the London correspondent of the Dublin uing M>nl, tin- new “rebel” steamer “No. 290,” winch has just given the Tuscarora the slip, is an iron-clad and a very formidable vessel: She can steam from sixteen to eighteen knots an hour; is perfectly seaworthy; for all practical purposes invulnerable, and will prove to any ves sel she may encounter as formidable an antago nist as our ow i Warrior, the boast of the Brit ish navv. This is the “No. 21*0” as to whose whereabouts Union cruisers have with reason betrayed such anxiety. It had been known for some time that a large and powerful iron vessel was constructing at the dockyard of Messers. Baird, Birkenhead; but monsters of the deep are .so much the order of the day at that establish- j meat that no one troubled his head much about ■ this new production, or cared to remark the great thickness of the plates which were being used. At the very last moment the federal author iti"8 seem to tave had their suspicions aroused, lor the Tuscarora was dispatched to keep watch in the neighbi rhuod of the dock where she lay, and the south*rn coat of Ireland was also strict ly watched. “No. 21*0” meanwhile, apprised of all th.it was going on, dropped down the river quietly otic day: and steamed out into the bay, nominally fur her trial trip—with a party of la dies and mu.-ieians on board. Instead, how ever, of returning to her moorings at Birkhead. where she would have been kept in durance vile by the Tuscarora, she quietly landed her passen gers, avoiding Cork, Waterford, etc., in the neigh borhood of which she might have heard of some thing not at ail toiler advantage. “No. 21*0“ steamed round by Londonderry and Donegal, and was joined oil'the west cost of Ire land by tbe steamer which had previously sailed, having on board the armament intended for tbe ‘■Ironsides.” Van Bl’be.v, Aug. 20th, 1862. R. 11. Johnson, esq.— Dear Sir: The enclosed letter from Mrs. Dunn to her husband's brother informing him of the murder of her husband by a party of Missouri militia, you will find of sufficient interest for pub lication. Win. and Jas. IJ. Dunn were beef con tractors in 1\ ice’s army and gentlemen of high standing. Respectfully yours, WM. WALKER. June 25th, 1^G2. To Mr. J. If. Dunn— Dear Itrothcr: 1 have sad news to communicate to you. I’oor William came home Saturday even ing. Johnson and Clay were here when Ire came home, lie had not been here more than a half hour when he went out to put away his horse—Johnson and Clay went with him. He had just got his sad dle off, when 4i) or 5!) of the State militia came galloping up, and were at the barn gate before they saw them; William and Clay ran into the orchard, and William lay down behind the bushes by the fence; they followed and took Clay prisoner; they fired at William twice, but missed him; he then raised up, came out and told them to take him. They questioned him about what he had been doing ami he told them he had just come home from Coffee’s camp—they said he had come to get news for Coffee, and they would kill him. They look him over the orchard and pasture fences through tlie woods to hunt Johnson and his horse, (which, of course, he knew nothing about) but they got his horse. They then brought William around to the south gate. He asked them if he might come to the house to see his wife and children, but they cursed him and told hi in no, so he called me out there and whispered to me to go to the house and empty the pockets of his coat and bring it to him; I did so, and then lie told me, “ Annie these men are going to kill me, I must bid you good bye, I want you to take care of the children, and do the best you can; Jim will helpyou raise my children.” He then asked me to bring Frank to see him, the lieutenant told him to hurry, I went to the house to get Frank wiio was asleep and had not yet seen his father since he came home. The lieutenant called William out across the road and told him he should shoot him there and to get through his talk quick. William came back and told mother and me that they were going to kill him right there, but mother and f threw ourselves on him and told them they must kill us first. They ordered us off or they would shoot us, and I think they would have shot us; they then told William to get on his horse, he did so, and took Frank in his arms and bi 1 him good bye, that those men were going to kill his father. Frank cried and screamed, and said, men don’t kill my pa! and I told them to look at those two little helpless children and then tell me if they could have the heart to kill my hus band, but they only cursed and mocked us; but told us they would not hurt him, only take him wiih them. So they started down the country road to wards Fidelity; then after going about a quarter of a mile they stopped, (so Clay says) made him get off his horse, and took him through the woods down a hollow to the left hand and there by a big tree shot him with six balls. We heard the firiiur ! and followed—I found him on his knees with his poor face in a pool of blood; I called him and thought he answered, but no, his lips were sealed in death. He was shot twice iu the head, three times in the left arm and once in the left side. We laid him to rest by his father’s side in the grave yard, at the meeting house. He looked very na tural—lie must have died instantly. J immy try to bear it the best you can, it is a severe affliction to us all. 1 don’t Want you to come home, stay away until you know it is safe to come, or you may share the same fate. Mother says she wants us to be together now, there are so few of us; but she is afraid to go south at this season of the year. What do you think it advisable for us to do1 The same crowd of State militia under Lieut. Lefevre, passed here yesterday (Monday) going back to Mt, Vernon. The union men, Andy Fos ter, the Motleys, Willoughbys, Smiths and Oliver, that came in with the State militia Saturday, as soon as they heard what had happened, left that night without waiting to cut their wheat, they were afraid to stay. Jimmy, on no account, attempt to come home, hut as soon as you think it best, we will come to you, if we are spared. Clay says, after they had killed him, Lieut. Le fevre rode among his men asking who would have his hat; none would take it, so he threw lUuid his coat to Clay, and told him damn him, take them and go take care of that man. We met Clay bring ing his hat and coat, and he turned back with us to search for William. I want you to let the Southern men read of this cold blooded murder. We are going to try and get Mr. May to go and see you. From vour afflicted sister-in-law, ANNIE C. DUNN. Gen. Curtin Proved a Liar. Gen. Curtis wrote and published a letter deny ing that his troops had committed any excesses in Arkansas, and asserting that he had paid for every thing bis army had taken. This letter was com mented upon by the abolition journals, and they began to abuse him for not stealing and murdering, under the mistaken apprehension that he had not done so. The Chicago Tribune devoted an article to him, and in reply to it, a chaplain ia one of his regiments comes to the rescue and manfully de fends him by asserting that he did steal everything he could find, and stripped the countiy bare. Here is the parson’s letter: Headquarters Army of the Southwest,/ Camp at Helena, Ark., Aug. 16, ’tkl. ) Editor Chicago Tihbun% — My attention has been culled to an article in your paper of the 1st inst., headed “ General Cur tis’ policy,” charging him with exhibiting more “care for the rebels than concern for his own troops. The army were on short rations for weeks, and the food taken h is been paid for at about double the prices the planters could get for it if they hauled it to the river.” 'Hie entire article is false, unjust and pernicious; not intentionally so, I am sure, but so in fact. Not one tenth of the provisions taken by Gen. Curtis’ army has been paid for. That which was paid for to loyal owners was at half the current rates, and every owner would have gladly received it back at double the price received. Provisions on the river would be cheaper if trade were open, but provi sions in Arkansas are haulded from the river to the country, not to the river. You say “Our past mode of dealing with the rebels was calculated to subdue them very soon or hurt them much.” The army of the southwest has stripped the country through which it passed, so bare that the poor and the rich of the inhabitants alike fear ac tual starvation. Thousands are suffering to-day, and around this camp are many who have followed the array iu anxious apprehension of famine. The negroes especially must and do suffer. Thousands have nothing but com, and occasionally fresh beef without salt. Much sickness is the consequence. The negroes are generally in a state of mutiny in conr-tfijienceof this impoverished condition of their masters, and their desire for freedom is greatly augmented by the presence of thousands who have obtained tree papers by the general’s exercise of military power—behaving claimed and exercised he power of the sword to weaken the foe by sever tng the chains that unties a slave to a belligerent iowner. The army of the southwest has for over six months been an advance picket. It is encumbered with non-combatants that come from both sides— from the enemy’s camp to escspe’oppression, and from the States interior to carry on trade with the new ly-opened country. This latterclas-, impelled by prospects of California gains, intrude beyond the pickets, offer exorbitant prices for assistance, and hence many are sent away for transgressions of military law.-, and others because their fidelity is suspected. We find those who at home have been secession sympathizers the most officious spe culators, evidently more successful beyond our pickets because they are sympathizers. Our ene mies at home can easily get food for malice by list oning to lies invented by the gamblers excluded from the lines, and w e do not expect our friends to repeat, and we feel that it is a poor compensa tion fora weary campaign, in which we are almost daily under the tire of insidious foes that we have driven a thousand miles, to say our “past mode of dealing w ith the rebels was not calculated to sub due them.” J. G. FORMAN, Chap. 3d Mo. Vois., in the army of the south-west. New Out.eaxs Items.—From a letter in the Mississippian from a New Orleans refugee, we make the following extracts: The Yankees were so certain of an attack about the 21st August, that they kept their mortars and cannon harnessed up for ten days and better, and Butler said that if the Confed erates did attack the city, he should arm the negroes and turn them loose upon the women and children, while he cut bis way with his men to the vessels, he having but very few effective troops here. Even if Billy Wilson s Zouaves arrived the week I left, which I was told they did.be would not have more than three thousand really able raeu, Pcrniooius fever, as the Yankees call it, bnt real yellow jack, if our doctors are any judges of the disease, is very busy among them, and I know, from their graveyards, that they have from fifteen to twenty graves dug ahead all the time in each graveyard. I have seen, with my own eyes, in Potter's field, the trenches con stantly digging, audit was the same in all the yards. V arious things there do not agree with the health of his Yankee knaves. The flnion feeling existing there—that they talk so much about—does not exist; for Butler says that even tbe women and children are the “ d—d’st rebels" lie ever saw; and there has been but, little union feeling displayed, where there was nothing to be gained. Self interest has been the parent of all the union feeling ex hibited there—of this I feel certain. To demonstrate this fact, let me relate an in cident which I know to be authentic. A Mrs. -, whose husband has come out strong on the union subject, knowing that in the public 1 school there would be many opportunities for those who would hurrah for the stars and stipes, and desiring to obtain the princ ipalship of one of the girls’ high schools, called upon General Butler, accompanied by a “secesh” lady who was anxious to see the Brute without having any business herself to take her there. Mrs. -. after complimenting Butler highly upon the condition of the streets and the city gener ally, and expressing her devoted allegiance to the old dag. stated that she called, actuated solely by the prompting? of her heart to take the oath of allegiance. Butler allowed her to get that far, and no farther—“ Get out, madam! get out! don’t say another word; I have never seen the woman in the South yet who would take the oath of allegiance, or even hear of it, unless they had an object to gain in it. They are the damnest rebels in the whole Confedera cy of rebels. Get out, madam: you want some favor under that; go.” And out she had to go. The “ secesh” lady couldn’t keep it, you may be sure; and it was no time before the story was out. Another incident: While our vessel was lying at the pickets, theyankee sentinels picked up a little boy of about six years, who was playing nearthem, and tried to induce him to hurrah for Lincoln. u I won’t.” “ Hurrah, and I'll give you somethimr.” “ I wont.” Catching him up, and suspending the littie fellow over the canal, they said: u Hurrah for Lincoln, or we'll drop, you in.” “ Drop and be damned,” said the little rebel; and, with a shout, they set him down, saying he was rebel [thick to the backbone. These two instances that I know of are pretty fair specimens of the union feeling there. A deadly hatred for their yankee rulers and tyrants burns in the hearts of old and young, men, wo men and children, with few exceptions to the rule. J8£>“ During the war with Mexico, a good ileal cf camp humor was elicited from army correspondents. The “ letters from a disbanded volunteer" were excellent. The best attempt at anything of the kind we have seen lately, is the correspondence of Orpheus C. Kerr, with the northern papers. We give one of his let ters as a specimen, though it was written last summer, before McClellan’s change of base be fore Richmond. Letter from Crplieus C. Kerr. It is my belief—my solemn and affecting be lief, my boy, that oar once distracted country, is destined to be such a great military power hereafter, that an American citizen will be dis tinguishable in any part of the world by his commission as a brigadier. Even Congressmen will answer to the command of ‘•Charge— mileage!’’ and it is. stated that sons of guns in in every variety are already being born at the West—sons of Pop” guns, my boy. The last time the General of the Mackerel brigade was here, he was so much pleased with the high state of strategy developed at the war office, that he visited all the bar rooms in Washington, and ordered the tumblers to be at once illuminated. ‘‘ Thunder!” says the general to Colonel Wobert Wobinsou, of the western cavalry, as they were taking measures to prevent any pos sible mistake by seeing the enemy double, “ this war is making groat tacticians of the whole na tion, and if 1 wanted my sons to become Na poleons, I d put them into the war office for a week. My sons! my sons!" says the general, hysterically, motioning for a little more hot water, “ why are you not here with me in glory, instead of remaining home there, like ripe plums on the parent tree.” “ Plums! plums!” says Colonel Wobinson, thoughtfully. “ Ah! I see,” says the colonel, pleasantly, “ your sons are damsons.” The general eyed the speaker with much se verity ot countenance; my boy. and says he: “ If you have any 30ns, my friend, they are probably fast young men, and take after their father—at ike approach of the enemy." Speaking of strategy, my ooy, you will re> member that company 3, regiment o. Mackerel brigade, started for at) advance on Richmond last week, and were within ten miles of that city. Subsequently they made another forced march of live miles, leaving only fifteen miles to go; and on Tuesday a messenger came in from them to Captain Villjam Brown, with the im telligcnce that the advance guard were already within twenty-five miles of the rebel headquar ters. “ IIul” says Villiam, “ the Confederacy id doomed; but Ijmust curve the advancing im petuosity of these devoted beings, or they’ll be in Canada in a week. I think/’ says Villiam, calculatingly, “that a retreat would bring us to the summer residence of the Southern Confed eracy in less time.’’ Here another messenger came in from the Richmond storming party, and, says he: “ The advance on Richmond has failed in consequence of the shoes furnished by the United States of America." “ Ah!-’ says Villiam, hastily setting down a goblet. “ Yes,’’ says the chap, mournfully, “ them air shoes has demoralized company .‘5, which is sdvanciug back to Paris at double-quick.— Them shoes,’’ says the chap, “ which was fur nished to the sons ot revolutionary forefathers by a contractor, at only twenty-five dollars a pair for the sake of the union, has caused a fatal mistake, they got so ragged with being exposed to the wind, then when company 3 hastily put them on for an advance on Rich mond, they got the heels in iront, and have been going in the wrong direction ever since.” “ Where did you leave your comrades?” says Villiam. “ At Jonesses Court House,” says the chap. “Ah!” says Villiam, “is that a healthy place?” “No,” says the chap, “ it's very unhealthy— I was drunk all the time I was there”. “ I see,” says Villiam, with great agitation, “ my brave comrades are in a tight place. Let all the newspaper correspondents be ordered to leave Paris at once,” says Villiam to his adju tant, “and well take measures for a second up rising of the North.” When it became generally known, my boy, that company 3, regiment 5, Mackerel brigade, were falling back across Duck Lake, there was great agitation in government circles, and the general of the Mackerel brigade prepared to call out all persons capable of bearing arms. “ The constitution is again in danger,” said the general, impulsively, and we must appeal to the populace.” “,Ah!” says Villiam, “it would also aid our holy cause to call out the women of America. For the women of America,” says Villiam, ad visingly, “are capable of baring arms to any extent.” “ Nc!” says the general. “ Woman’s place in this war is beside the couch of the sick sol dier. Thunder!” says the general, genially, “It’s enough to make us fonder of our common nature to see the devotion of woman to the in valid volunteer. As 1 was passing through the hospital just now,” says the general, feelingly, “ 1 saw a tender, delicate woman acting the part of a ministerng angel to a hero in a hard ague. She was fanning him, my friend—she was fanning him.” “ Heaven bless her!” says Villiam, with streaming eyes; “ and may she never be without a stove when she has a fever. I really believe, sap Villiam, glowingly, “ that if woman found her worst enemy, even, burning to death, sbe would heap coals of fire upon his head.” \ illiam s idea of heaping coals of fire, my boy, is as literal as was the transaction of | Enoch. On learning ot the repulse from Richmond, ! all the southern union men of Paris commenced , to remember that the rebels are our brethren, I and that this war was wholly brought about by j the fiendish abolitionists, i ** ^ es- says a patriotic chap from Accomac, I sipping the oath loyally, “ the abolitionists : brought this here war about, and 1 have deter ; mined not to support it. Our slaves read the 1 ribune, ana have learned so much from read ing articles in that paper that the very life of the South depermed upon separation.” In fact, mv boy, notwithstanding the efforts of Captain \ illiam Brown to tranqualize the i feeling by seizing the telegraph office and rail ' rr>a(l depot, telegraphing to everybody eveywhere for reinforcements, the excitement was con j stantly increasing, until word came from com I paav 3, regiment o, Mackerel brigade, that no j rebels had been in sight at all. When this intelligence was brought to the General of the Mackerel brigade, and as soon as the band had finished serenading him, he called for a fresh tumbler, and says be: “ 1 niay as well tell you at once, my comrades that this whole matter is part of my plan for bringing this unnatural war to a speedy termina tion. Company 3 retired by my design—and_ and—in fact, my children,” say3 the General, confidingly, “ its something you can’t under stand—its strategy.” Perhaps it was, my boy—perhaps it was, but there is more than one reason to believe that strategy means military shoes with heels in the toes. Yours, cautiously. , ORPHEUS C. KEER. To Purify Sai.t and Brixe from Fish and Meat Barrels.—The solid salt, if there is any in the barrels, should he scoupedout and drain ed, and the draining returned to the brine.— Boil the brine down to a solid. This, together with the salt already removed from the brine, must be heated to a dull red heat, or sufficient to char the organic matter contained in it; if it cakes in burning, it should be stirred to bring all parts in contact with the heat. Then dis solve ia clean water, using no more water than is necessary for the purpose. This impure -so lutiou must be carefully strained through a fine cloth—a bag made of canton flannel is the best. If it does not come through clear repeat the process a second or third time without washing the strainer. The strained brine must be boil ed down again. As the evaporation progresses, j salt will be formed at the bottom of the pan or l ki ttle, and as this retards the evaporation it can | be ladled out and drained, the drainings return | ei to the kettle and the salt spread out on clean vessels to dry, while the boiling must be con tinued until the water is nearly evaporated when the salt may be removed and dried. In this way, salt equal to the finest table salt may be made from the most impure brine. A saturated solution of salt contains about one fourth by weight, of salt; consequently, a gal lon of brine should yield one and a half to two pounds of salt. '1 his process could he advan tageously employed, in families, even with salt at the old prices. Salt from springs, and that t leached from earths, decomposed sand stone, etc., containing organic matter, may be purifi ed by the process given above for brine. Earth from smoke houses may be leached and treated in the same manner. The process is p> fleetly simple; the only care required is that the burning is sufficient (saltis not injured by heat.) and the straining neatly conducted, and all the vessels used, kept clean. Tho Mandamu3. Much is said in prejudice of Danley and Johnson, Little Rack, because they petitioned tor a mandamus from the supreme court to compel the officers to do their duty and give the people the privilege of voting for Governor, Military Hoard, etc., which Gov. Rector refused to do. It struck us as peculiarly appropriate. Any citizen of the State had the same privilege; but the conductors of the press—the tribunes of the people—men without office, yet by their avoca cation the guardians of popular liberty—wore the men to step forward and compel an un willing and incompetent officer to perform his duty—a duty which he would not perform, be* cause it put him out of office. Sustained alone by the people, warning them of danger and vindicating th^claims of justice, it places the press in that honorable position it should, of right, occupy, for its conductors to step forward and vindicate the right of the people to elect their officers according to law. Tho press is sustained alone by the pieopie, and it is the duty of its conductors to vindicate their rights.— Pine Bluff True Southron. John Hunt Morgan is the second son of Col.

The brave and devoted men who fill up the ranks of our armies and protect the righ's ol all, have left their wives and children, their mothers and sisters, in the care of their respective communities. They reasonably expect that the citizens who re main at home, and for whom they risk their lives, will, at least, keep their families from sutleriiig.— This reasonable expectation is not fully met. In many cases, the families of soldiers are in extreme destitution—many others are likely to become des titute, and a frightful state of want must soon pre vail among them, unless extraordinary steps are taken for their relief. The government is bound to its soldiers, to avert such calamities if possible. The only measure that seems adequate, is to regu late the prices of the necessaries of life. There fore, the following tariff of prices is hereby adopt ed for the articles named, to-wit: Corn, per bushel, - - $1 Corn meal, “ " 1 Wheat, “ “ - - 1 Flour, “ 100 lbs. - - 8 Bacon, “ lb.
