To Maj. Gen. Walker, Pine Bluff—
General: While communicating officially with
Col. Parsons, I will take the liberty of supplying
you with such items of news as I have been able
to collect from'the New York Herald, Cincinnati
Commercial, Chicago Times and Memphis Appeal.
From Memphis Appeal—A fight at Port Hudson
in which one Confederate brigade was engaged
successfully with the enemy. No light between

ment all is lost. The republican papers denounce
Brooks, of New York; Vullaudingham and Gox,
of Ohio; Allen, of Illinois, and Voorhies, of In
diana, as secession traitors, anu merit treatment
as such. All these men have made bitter speeches
against Lincoln.
Vallaudingham couteuds, iu his speech, for the
right of secession, says, the South has righteously
and fully achieved her freedom, and is now Iree.
Says there must be no hanging of traitors after the
war, and if there is hanging, that. Abraham rnu-t
and will be hungfirst, as he is the vilest tiaitor
of all. He affirms that though his oath will not
let him divulge the substance of tho propositions,
that France has offered propositions of mediation
t# the United States, and that Congress is now
considering them. He affirms this is the only
chance by which the United States can honorably
get out of her present difficulties. Conway of

the Confederate States, and a treaty of free trade
between them, and the mutual adoption by them of
the Monroe doctrine. New Yoik, Pennsylvania.
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky, have passed
in their legislatures peace resolutions, and resolu
tions for a convention of said States, to meet in
Louisville, on the 16th of April. 1363. The Ken
tucky legislature by a two-thirds vote has called
out twenty thousand volunteers, to resist the ex
ecution of tho emancipation proclamation. A
regiment of negroes was ordered to Port Hudson
by Banks, when 125 federal otlieers refused to light
and were put in the Penitentiary at Biton Rouge.
Also a number for similar reasons, are imprisoned
on Ship Island. Several mass meetings held in
Ohio and Illinois, iu which it was resolved to resist
the authorities of the United States, as long a*
Lincoln ruled it. There are secret associations
discovered ill Indiana and PeiinsvIvauia looking t i
civil war and resistance id the military authority
of the United States. A heavy fight between Geu.

heavily, but tho Yankees much more so. Tl*|‘
reported five thousand killed, wounded andpr.siii^
ci*. Tiie General telegraphed that all the Penn
sylvania troops threw down their anus and refused
to fight. This he gives as reason of his defeat.
The Confederal s have cut the levee above the
point where the Yankees were digging their canal,
and drowned them all out. All their boats wire
engaged three davs in removing the army up to
Lake Providence. They have determined on a ,
new line of attack against Vicksburg, from Miss, j
river, via Yazoo, pass to Yazoo river and thence j
down by the river and by land in the rear. Already j
five of their gun boats lor the purpose are through j
tho pass and in Yazoo river. We are obstructing
the river by timber and rafts, and have also two :
^un boats there already for fighting the enemy — i
Fight at Ft. Donelson between the enemy and
Forrests’ ••avalry, the enemy reinforced by two gun I
boats. Mulligan the Yankee commander, says if
the gun boats had delayed 15 minutes, he would
h ive been compelled to surrender.
These items 1 collect from the papers and for |
ward through Col. Parsons I cannot vouch for
the truth ol them. Believe all the items are sub- j
stantially true.

Sir: Having experienced the bane of an invad- '

fellow-citizens who live at a distance from their
influences and effects, should be perseveringly re

federal army or any portion of it cross their thresh
The expedition that came up hero a few days
after the fall of the Post of Arkansas, consisted
of four gunboats, thirty-six transports and about
20,000 infantry and cavalry and artillery. Find
ing no troops here they vented their spleen by
burning houses and destroying property indiscrimi
nately; also by stealing negroes, horses and mule#
The first thing burned was the stenrn saw and gri«
mill of V. A. Marquis; the destruction of which
has put the people of the neighborhood to great
trouble in order to get meal for bread. There was
about 30 houses destroyed—many of them belong- j
iug to widows and orphan*. They are new left
houseless and homeless.
In some instances above here on White river, I
was informed by some of their own officers that
thev had turned women and children out ot their
houses without a mouthful of provisions or any
olothes, except what was on them at the time, and
put the torch to their houses, leaving them to per
ish bv cold and hunger, should they not be able to
reach some friendly roof to shelter and feed them.
They have shot down our cattle and hogs indis
criminately wherever they come to them, and when
too poor for beef left them laying. It has had one
good effect, however, it has confirmed many that
were undetermined, or rather that were crying out
against the Confederate troops and their depreda
I have no doubt that should a necessity arise for
it, that several companies of old men could now
be raised us volunteers to go into the army, when
before the Yankees came up here, there could not
hsvebeen one full company of volunte* rs gotten.
1 find men who formerly would speak of these \ an
kees as they were gentlemen, now curse and abuse j
them for every thing degrading they can think of.

desire to keep them away from thair homes, and
to do this thev must act boldiy and speedily.

Sir: Through you I have the honor to make
the following report to the Maj. commanding
the division, of the action of my brigade in front
of Murfreesboro, Dec. 31st, 1862. In obedience
to orders received at seven o’clock p. m.. 30th
Dec. 1862, I formed my brigade in lino of bat
tie on the ground designated at that time; at 6
o'clock a. m., on the 31st inst: I moved forward
about one hundred and fifty yards, and joined
Brig. Gen. Ector on the right. We then moved
forward together to meet the enemy, who was
in force immediately in front-ot us. We had
advanced but a short dstanoe before the ene
my's pickets and sharp shooters op ined fire j
upon us. At this point, I cautioned my bri
gade to resume their fire and press forward. 1
had advanced but a short distance when the fire j
became general along the line, indicating that ;
w j w<-re near the enemy in position, and at that
moment he opened upon us with a six gnu bst
terv a most terrific fire of shells and grape shot.
I then ordered a charge, which was responded
to with elacrity and good will; it was but a mo
ment until his liattery was ours, his long lines
id’ infantrv routed and dispersed, and the
Strong position which he he'd in security but a
moment b-fore, covered with bis dead and
wounded. Mv brigade continued to pursue the j
enetnr for f of a mile, pouring a destructive fire !
into his broken and ac.att-rel ranks, leaving tin* 1
ground strewn with his dead and wound d. At
this point discovering the supnorl on mv ri -lit.
had not come up as expected bv me, and the
enemv had thrown a heavy for part v in my
rear, their sharp shoott rs had a'readv c mi
menced to fire on mv wound d in r, I halt' d
my brigade, and in ive’d them to the re ir, by
the flank for the purpose uf protecting- mv
wounded men. Having moved but a short du
tanee, I discovered Brie. (ien. La Dell advanc
ing with his brigade on mv right, thus nbvia’in r
a further movement, on mv part iii tlurt direc
tion, at this point I wheeled mv bnvad*» to thn
right, thus changing mv fr >nt an 1 joining B ig.
Gen. La Dell ob his left. Again I order* d a
forward mivemant pressing the enemy s right
back upon his eenter in a direction, and north
from that poin‘; hero a heavy skirmish com
menced with new forces of the enemy, supp >s
ed to be about one division. They were driven
from every position, for a distance of ^ mile,
here they took position protecting themselves
behind a rail fence; to the right oblique ot my
line of battle, the enemy had already engaged
Gen. La Dell’s brigade on my right, holding
them in check and pouring a destructive fir*
into his ranks. Discovering his critical pnsis
tion, I immediately ordered a forward move
ment, and had to advance across an open field
a distance of about four hundred yards; again
I directed my brigade to resume their fire, which
was done, until we got in about three hundred
yards; though the enemy poured a heavy fire
upon my line from behind their cover, vet not
a man faltered but pressed forward with the
stern determination of veterans. IL-re I ordered
a charge and as berore both officers a id men,
seamed to vie with each other, and one simuls
taneous shont rent the air. The enemy made
bold by his front being protected by the fence,
held his position with more tenacity then usual,
but the terrific fire poured upon his ranks, and
the rapid velocity with which my men charged
him, route 1 him from his cover, in confusion
thus relieving Brig. Oen. La Dell’s brigade
which was already faltering under the heavy
fire of the enemy, and for the second time charg
ing and driving him from his strong position.
This perhaps was the hardest contested engage
ruput of the dar; here my loss in killed and j
wounded was heavy, though small compared 1
with that of the enemy. Without halting I !
pressed the oneniy through an oppn field, pour
ing a deadly fire into their disordered ranks, for :
half or three f mrtlis of a mile arriving at an j
Other fence in front of a dense forest, fearing j
an ambuscade, *nd at the same time finding the j
men were out of am Munition, I ordered a hah, ■
and rp»ted the men in rear of a fence, at the
game time ordering np the ammunition tram
which arrived in due time, and proceeded to re- j
pleni-h the cartridge boxes. At this point, j
General, as von are aware, becoming exhausted j
f.om ill health, for several days previous. I was
unable to remain on the field longer, and put
Col. R. W. Harper of the 1st regiment, of Ari j
kansas mounted rifl 'rnm, (dismounted) in com
mand of the brigade, and must refer you to his
report, for the further action of the brigade
that day. In regard to the casualties ot the
brigade arc a« alreadv reported, killed 42, mor
tally wounded 6, killed, wounded and missing,
427. Am happy to report however that a very
large proportion of the wounds are slight, and
most of the men will report for dntv very soon.
And here Gen. I beg leave to call your atten
tion to the surgeons of mv brigade, surgeon W.
L. Gamnage, with the limited means at his
disposal, did all that could be done to relieve
the suffering of the wounded men. The regi
mental surgeons with their assistant surgeons,
proved themselves worthy of the high and re
sponsible position they occupy, by their united
efforts,with the assistance of the infirmary corps,
not one wounded man was left nncared for du
ring the night. As you arc aware Gen. we
turned the right wing of the federal army back
upon their center, driving them a distance ot 4
miles or more, taking one Brig. Gen. (W illicit.)
prisoner, a large number of officers ot the line
and privates innumerable, capturing 14 pieces
of artillery, caissons and ordnance, a great num
ber of small arms and camp equipage, all
of which T presume were collected by the prop
er persons. For the action of Capt. Humphreys
battery, I will have to refer you to his report,
it being detached from the brigade during the
day, consequently did not come under my ob
servation, but feel as-urred without further evi
dence that the gallant Capt. Huraphrevs and
his company were not found wanting on this oc
I must respectfully ask to call your attention
to officers composing my staff. Capt. Foote and
Carrington, always at their posts, rendered me
valuable assistance during the day. Mr. James
Stone, volunteer aid, has placed me under last
ing obligations for bis active assistance. To
Maj. Mulherrin, much credit is due, for his con
tinued attention to his department, which ad
ministered so much to the comfort of the men.
Maj. Elster as usual at his post keeping all right
with the train. My little orderly V. King, and
his white pony was ever present, doing all he
could to complete the victory. Though con
trary to my usual custom, I beg leave to call
your attention to the field officers of my brigade.
It has been my fortune to be present at many a
hard fought battle, but never have I witnessed
such deeds of moral courage and gallant daring
j as was displayed both by the field and officers
of the line during the entire day. I forbear
to mention, names for each seemed to vie with
the other in deeds of gallantry, but one, I must
mention, that one is Maj. L. M. Ramsower, of
the first regiment Arkansas mounted rifles; he
wa3 severely wounded in the last charge made
on the enemy’s stroughold. To him much is
due for the gallant charges of the day. To of
ficers and men I am indebted for the success
of my command. Our country and the glorious
cause in which we are engaged, can never sut

Franca and the United States—Tlio Pro
gramme of Napoleon.
Pints, January Id.—The following is an ex
tract from an article? in this morning's edition
of the Emperor's personal organ, L t .Xufioncl:
The cotton industry wiil sutler a forced inac
tivity until the relations of Europe with the
L'niied States .-.hall be re-established on their
former basis. And such is especially the end
which it is our duty to pursue and to seek to
realize, no matter at what price. One ol the
nroaiis which seems to be most proper and ex
peditious to arrive at this result., was indicated
in this place three days ago, and has not yet
found a contradictor:
Force the blockade sword in hand.
The plan is both proud and prompt.
Now, it is to-day a well settled fact, that the
battle of Frt-iricksburg has finally brought, the
last doubting members of the French g iveru
ment to the conclusion that the separation in
the United States is final, and that the future
policy of the French government is to be based
on this dangerous assumptin. The nation be
ing therefore divided into two, and the charm
of the old Union, with all its souvenirs gone,
why, they say, shall we not have cotton and a
revival of trade?
The otlieers of the French army may be
heard now on all occasions expressing the opin
ion that they can land on the American shore
with a hundred thousand French soldiers and
march straight through the country—which is
only anoiher way ot expressing ill i contempt
which has been inspired by the failures i t the
American army. And however much we may
hold tins expression of opinion in contempt, it
lias an important political .signification, since
the Einperor who reposes on his army, is al
ways ready to be agreeable to it, and delights in
this confidence ot Ins officers in their great sn
p'-rioi i v.
f am told that the following i ■ the programme
of the French government at the present mo
ment: '1 he government, having male an ar
rangement with Mr. Slidell for a large ijn i:iti
ty of cotton, will ask the American government
for facilities fur getting it out, promt-dug, at the j
same tine . that no contraband of war shall be
introduced in exchange, and, it the Amoi^ran
g vernnient will not cons-ill ti this, they wul j
take it. bv force.

Thf. Loxnox Times and the Scriptcral
view of Slavery.—In an editorial of the Lou
don “ Times," commenting on the share Mess
ers. Beecher, Checver, Tyng, .and others, have
taken in this war, the following paragraph oc
These gentlemen preach not for an infallible
or an established church, for no such church
has yet ventured to be as dogmatic and positive
on this point as they are. They preach with
the Bible in their hands. In that book there is
not one single text that car. be perverted to
prove slavery unlawful, though there is much
which naturally tends to its mitigation, its ele
vation, and its final extinction, in the New
Testament we have an epistle written by the
man who represents the last revea ed phase and
development of the Gospel, sent by the hand of
a runaway slave, who had sought a refuge with
the writer, to his lawful master, to the purport
that the mast- r and his slave were to get on bat
ter and do their duty to one another more thor
oughly for the luture. 1 he same wriier tells
his recent converts that if they arc slaves they
must in ike the best of that condition, aud not
try to escape it. at iea-t by any means contra
ry" to the laws of the country. The only possi
ble doubt about the exact meaning of bis ad
-vice is, whether the slaves are to refuse their
liberty, even if it be offered, or whether they
are merely to remain true to th ir masters, even
if chance presents the opportunity of escape.—
[ he context, which -ays that a faithful and du
t ful Christian slave becomes the f'reedman of
h;s Heavenly Master, clearly proves that a slave
who refuses the offer of freedom has a high
Scriptural argument for his choice. It it be
said that slavery is at variance vvilli the spirit
of the Gospel, so also are a good many things
which are not yet laid under the ban of aboli
tion or threatened with the “ war power."—
Sumptuous fare, purple and fine linen, wealth,
ecclesiastical titles, unmarried clergy, good
clerical incomes, and many other things are
contrary to the spirit of the Gospel, or, at least,
can be proved so as easily as slavery, But the
Roman Catholics have just as much to say for
any one of their peculiar doctrines as the abo
litionists have for their one Article of a send
ing or falling community. Whether the Con
federates have done right to throw of the Union
is a distinct question, but they cannot have a
better defence than a proclamation of war to
the knife, a solemn invocation of the “ war pow
er” agaiust every slave owner who still claims
the duty of his slaves.
The y axkbe inatioxal song.-k appears n at
th*‘ Republicans have adopted the famous 'Jolia
Brown’s S nil’s a Marching ”On as a national
song, and no one can dispute the propriety of
the selection. It is impo.-sible to imagine anyth
ii g more atrocious than the poetry, except the
sentiment-', nor more aboninible than the sub
ject exceptth- people. A more faithful type of
the Puritan race than John Brown could not
be found. A fanatic, a horse thief, and a mur
dorpr. no one can dispute his claims to be the
patron saint of the rogues and ruffians who are
marching on,stealingand butchering as they go.
The French h ive the "Mars-liaise,’’the Br -
tons “God Save the Queen,’’ the United S ates
once had “Ilail Columbia,'’ and the Yankees
“Yankee Doodle,’ -an appropriate air for them
in their days of simplicity-but “John Brown, is
j the melody of all others suited to their cause
and full blown depravity, It is redolent of all the
j peculiar-characistics of that peculiar people,

Traitors Read your Doom.
I have read much of history—the annals of crime—
1 have seen much of baseness, in many a clime;
Old Arnold, for instance, betrayed a just cause,
John Brown, the tanatis, discarded the laws.
But blacker and baser and moaner than all,
Are the men of the South—very loyal withal—
Yet refuse Southern money in payment to take,
From brave Southern soldiirs, who fight for thslr sake, j
Thus the sinews of war, bynvarico, are cut,
And th« hand, that should aelp. to th -ir vitals are pnt.
Vile traitors lik" Arnold *:i ,uld be burnt at tlio stake,
Old Dr >wn. on a gibbet, wm hung by the neck;
Itut these craven rascals entrenched behind laws,
Which appeal to their honor and love fur the cause,

officeis in this btate.

Coin'dt Conscripts, District Arkansas.
Adjutant and Inspectok General’s OffjcE.£
Xicftrtiond, January 3, le63. )
Genera! Or !era, No. I.
I. The following orders are published for the in
formation of the army:
AH white male citizens of the Confederate States,
between the ages of 13 and 40, who are not ex
empt by the act of October 11 th, 1862, are liable
to conscription; and all such as have been already
enrolled and mustered, will be held as though in
service of the Confederate States, until otherwise
ordered. Exemption will not take place until after
enrollment, when enrolling officers will grai t cer
tificates of exemption, in all cases clearly within
the meaning of the act. All doubtful cases for
exemption will be referred, for decision, to Com
mandants of Camps of Instruction, and if neces
sary, by them to the Chief of the Bureau of Con
scription in Richmond. Such cases "ill not be re
quired to report in person to the camp of instruc
tion until final action is had on the same.
II. Enrolling officers are required to be vigilant
in t'ne discharge of their duties w ithin the district
confided to them, not only in respect to the enroll
ment of conscripts, but also in the apprehension
and arrest of stragglers and deserters from the
army. Complaints having been made of harsh
treatment to conscripts by enrolling officers in cer
tain localities, which treatment is calculated to
prejudice the cause of the Confederate States, by
encouraging opposition to the acts of conscription,
it will be the duty of Commandants of Camps of
Instruction to report to the Secretary of War, for
discharge from conscript service, any o licer who
shall offend in this particular. It is required of
all enrolling officers to encourage and promote a
good understanding wit.h the people of the district
in which they may be serving; and it is impressed
on them, that firmness of purpose, termiered with
kindness and forbearance, will best promote the
objects to be attained.
III. Enrolling officers will furnish to Command
ants of Caiups of Instruction, at the end of each
month, a complete roll of the conscripts made by
them during tho month. Such rolls will also em
brace the names of persons who have been enroll
ed, and exempted within that period- One copy
of these rolls will be immediately forwarded by
the Commandants of the Camps ol Instruction to
the Chief of the Bureau of Conscription in Rich
mond, for file and future reference.
IV. All commissioned officers between the ages
of IS and 40, who have become disconnected with
the armv, by tne operation ofGe icr.il Orders,
Nos. 48"and 36, of 1SG2, or by reason of non re
election, resignation or dismissal, unless actually
disabled (of which they must furnish evidence,)
-- . -i-s- y
are subject to conscription; and while substitutes
between the above ages, and who are not embraced
in the provisions of the exemption law, will be
held in service to the end of the terms for which
they have engaged, the principals within the same
ages, for whom the substitute may hu\e engaged
to serve, will be liable to conscription.
