Bill Arp, tile Roman Runagce.
[The following letter, as its date
indicates, -was published before in the
Atlanta Confederacy, now defunct,
but as it is a necessary prelude to an
original one now in our hands from
"Bill Arp," we give it, the better to
enable our readers to appreciate and
understand the communication which
will appear in our next issue. The
subjoined letter refers to a character
well known in Georgia as "Big John,"
who is, to use a familiar but expres?
sive phrase, "a regular trump." The
original letter which, as we stated,
shall appear in the next number of
the Record, will refer more at length
to this celebrated individual, and also
relates how "Bill Arp" returned to
Rome, his experience and that of the
Arp family on the way, and what he
saw and did when be arrived in "the
Eternal Citty. "
[New York Metropolitan Record.
ATLANTA, May 22, 1864.
Mn. EDITTJK :-"Remote, onfrend
ed, melankolly, slow," as somebody
sed, 1 am now seeking a log in some
vast wilderness, a lonely roost in some
Okeefeenokee swamp, where the fowl
invaders cannot travel, nor their pon?
toon bridges pbloat. If Mr. Shake
speere were correct when he writ
"sweet are the juices of adversity,"
then it are reasonabul to suppose that
me and my foaks and many others
must have some sweetnin to spare.
When a man is aroused in the ded of
night, and smells the approach of the
fowl invader ; when be feels konstraiu
cd to change his base and bekum a
ruuagee from his home, leaving be?
hind him all tiloso nessasary things
which hold body and soul together ; j
when he looks, perhaps the last time,
upon his lovely home, where lie has
been for many delightful years raisin
children and chickens, strawberries
and peas, lie- soap and in guns, anti
all sich luxuries of this sublunary
life ; when he imagines every onusual
sound to be the crack of his earthly
doom ; when from sich influences he
begins a dignified retreat, but soon is
konstrained to leave the dignity be?
hind, and git away without regard to
the order of his going-if there is any
sweet juice in the like of tbat, I
bavent been able to see it. No, Mr.
Editur, sich scenes never happened
in Bill Shakespeere's day, or he
wouldent have writ that line.
I den't know that the lovely inhabi?
tants of your butifnl ci tty need any
fourwarning to make em avoid the
breakers tipon which our vessel
wrecked ; but for fear they should
some day shake their gory locks at
me, I will make publik a brief allu?
sion to some of the painful girkum
stances which lately okkurred in the
regions of the eternal citty.
Not many days ago, the everlastin
Yankees (may they live al Krays when
the devil gits em) made a violent
assault upon the citty of the bills
the eternal citty, where a hundred
years the Injun rivers have been
blendin divers waters peacefully to?
gether-where the Chocktaw children
built their flutter mills, and toyed with
frogs and tadpoles, while these ma?
jestic streams were but Uttle spring
branches, a babblin along their sandy
beds. For 3 days and nights our
vally unt troops had beat bak the fowl
invader, and saved our pullets from
their devourin jaws. For 3 clays and
nights we bade farewell to every fear,
luxuriating upon the triumph of our
arms, and tho sweet juices of our
strawberries and cream ! For 3 days
and nights fresh troops from the South
poured into our streets with shouts
that made the welkin ring, and the
turkey bumps rise all over the flesh
of our poople. "We felt that Rome
was safe-sekure against the assaults
of the world, the flesh and the devil,
which last individual are supposed to
bo that borde of fowl invaders, who
are seekin to phlank na out of bread
But alas for human hopes! Man
that is born of woman (and there are
no other .sort that I know of) has but
few days that ain't full of trouble.
Altho the troops did shout, altho
their brass bound musik welled upon
the gale, altho thc turkey bumps
rose as the welkin rung, altho the
commanding General assured us that
Rome was to be held at every hazard,
and that on to-morrow the big battul
was to be fought, and the fowl inva?
ders hurled all bleedin and bowling
on the shores of the Ohio, yet it did
transpire somehow that on Tuesday
night the military evakuation of our
citty were, peremtorily ordered. Nc
note of warnin-no whisper of alarm
nu hint of the morrow came from the
inussled lips of him who had lifted
our hopes so high. Calmly and
cooly we smoked our killy kinick,
and surveyed the embarkation ol
troops, koustruin it to be some grand
manover of military strategy. Aboul
10 o'clock we retired to rest to dreaii:
of to-morrow \s viktory. bleep soor
overpowered us like the fog thal
kivered the earth, but nary bright
dream had kum, nary vision of free
dom and glory. On the kontrary
our rest were uneasy-strawberriei
and cream seemed to be holdin seces
sion mectins within our corporate
limits, when suddenly in the twinklii
of au eye a friend aroused us fron
our slumber and put a new faze upoi
the "situation." Gen. Johnston wa
retreatin, au the hlue-uossed Yankee
were to pollute our sakred soil th

war. "With hot feverish haste w

With sweet and patient sadness,
the tender hearts of our wives and
daughters beat mournfully as we
moved along. Often, alas, how often
was the tear seen swimming in the
eye, and the lip quivering with emo?
tion, as memory lingered around de?
serted homes and thoughts dwelt
npon past enjoyments and future
desolation. We plucked the wild
flowers as we passed, sang songs of
merriment, exchanged our wit with
children, smothering by every means
the sorrow of our fate. These things,
together with the comick events that
okkurred by the way, were the safety
valves that saved the poor heart from
bursting. But for them, our heads
wordd have been fountains and our
hearts a fountain of tears. Oh, if

THE ONLY RECOGNIZED DEMOCRATIC
NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED IN NEW
YORK, DAILY, SEMI-WEEK?
LY AND WEEKLY.
TO THE PUBLIC.
THE NEW YORK NEWS HAS BATTLED
against despotism for four years of
blood and terror, in assertion of thc sanc?
tity of tho Constitution. A patriotism
sufficiently broad to embrace both sections
has been its onlv guide, and it refers not
With honest pride to its record to show that
it uas not turned to tho right or tho left
tinder all the violence of arbitrary power.
True to its principles as THE NE\VS has
been through tho reign of terror, it chal?
lenges public confidence in its honesty and
independence for the future.
The political transition of the present
dav opens to THE NEWS a new and wider
field ot usefulness. Standing now, as it
always has, on the inviolability of the Con?
stitution, according to tho interpretation of
the strict constructionists, it presents a
rallying ground for all, in both sections,
who are friends of a generous conservatism.
As a true and tried exponent of sectional
amity, it occupies a position which makes it
the fitting mediator in holding up to the
party of order, in both sections, interests
and principles that gave breadth and vi?
tality to their alliance. As an inte rsec
tional agent, devoted to freedom of elec?
tion, to trial by jury, to tho sanctity of tho
habeas corpus, and opposed now, as for
four years of terror it has been, to the cen?
tralization that dares to trample on the
rights of States, North or South, THE
NEWS places itself as a candidate for sup?
port before the great body of this once free
HThe circumstances of the moment make
tao dissemination ol' the principles of THE
NEWS a duty of individual patriotism.
Every niau wini concur? in its doctrine
must, if he entertain a true sense of free- ,
dom, do so ia no spirit of indifference, but
rather with the earnestness of a high trust.
Justified, nay bound, in his luve of iiborty,
to do so,the proprietor places the canvass he
makes herc of tile public generally in thc
hand.; of those men who give bin: the ap?
proval of their consciences as his individual
agents. Every reader of Tun NEWS cannot
avoid tlie conviction of duty which is here
pointed (jut as the ground of the request,
that h . urge.-* ils claims for a wider support
upon a.. of his friends and neighbors who
give th ir earnest sympathies to the cause
of "strict construction,'* intersectional con- j
ciliation, und all the rights of the citiaens |
under the system set up by our fathers of !
liberty regulated by law. Thc proprietor
of THE NEWS calls', therefore, upon good I
and true Conservatives throughout the
country, to discharge, to their convictions
of political right at this great crisis in the
country's fortunes, the duty of giving to I
the intluence of his paper, daily, semi- ;
weekly or weekly, the wider power for good |
whieli it seeks here through the service of !
its individual supporters.
