The undersigned, citizens of Clinton, Gn
feel it their duty to submit the subjoined state

the Federal army into our county and villag
for the information of our "fellow-citizens wh
have fled from their homes, that they mn
take due notice to govern .themselves accor<

The advance of the Federal column rcachc
Clinton.about 2-o'clock on Saturday afteruoo:
and encamped around the village. This coi
sisted mainly of Kilpatrick's cavalry. The ii
fautry, consisting of the 15th and lVth arm
- corps, under Howard, followed from Sundn
morning until Wednesday afternoon and et
camped during the whole time within a fe
miles of Clinton. The rear of the column di
not leave the county until Friday morning,;tb
25th insf.
It will thus be seen that they remained i
the countv about one. \yeok; : Our conditio
can scarcely be imagined. To say that tli

of their clothing and furniture spared, but ci
erything'* out of doors was given up to indii
criminate plunder. Hogs, cattle, horses, mule

slaughtered or driven oft' without e-xception.Nearly
all of the bacon, corn, fodder, whea

and that is an undying hatred towards the Yai

Tlie Threats of the JLncmy?X Secret
' Conspiracy iu ICiebiiioml,
Lincoln's election has started the Black Republicans
with'their threats of: the sword and
7t gallows to the people of the South. At a jolitication
meeting held in New York bv the ReC7
*
publicans, one of their speakers said :
m But there was nothing like bbing inagnnniv,
mons after they had whipped their opponents.
8tl They should not whip Jeff. Davis and his rebel
cohorts in front of Richmond and "destroy them,
and hang the leaders. [Cheers] lie to'd them
ut tnc time was coining rapidly, when :be loval
io Union men of the South would take hold oftho
r. old Stars and Stripes and march into Richmond
nt and take possession of the rebel confederacy,
and hang the infernal traitors who led them into
this rebellion. [Applause.} It might be a
>r satisfaction to some men to talk about the
1 whole South as being rebels, but lie knew from
correspondence he had in his own house that
there were as loj'al men in Richmond to-day as
g in any other.portion of the States of the (Jon[i.
fedcracy ; and he would say that there was
s- more secession, in pioportion to the inliabilants,
in the city of New-York than in Rich-*
" inond. There was in Richmond U-.lay a se1
crct organization of Union men who 9-on Id
de-troy Jeff. Davis and his minions when Gen.
ro Grant and Gen. 1 >11 tier should march into U1VI1.
la mo nil and take possession of that city. [Ap i.
plausc.] And not the Inst 'man there to help
1, them was John Miner Bolts. [Loud cheers.]

ncssee, niul Mr. John Mitchell, were summoned
id before the Mayor to answer to the charge of
iu being about to break the peace in lighting a duL'e
el. The evidence elicited was, that Mr. Swan
L" went to the room of Mr. Foote as the bearer of
a note from Mr. Mitchell. Mr. Foote refused to
recognize Mr. Swan as a gentleman, whereupon
Mr. Swan struck Mr. Foote with uinhrel)a
in his own chamber and in the presence of
tc his wife. Mr. Foote therefore prepared a clialo
longe to bo sent to Mr. Swan.

a
lie existence between Mrssrs. Fuute a-nd Swan, they
er not. having spoken for sonic time past,
cli The dillienlty between Mr. Mitchell and (.Jov.
in Footo grew out of reniai Us made concerning
the former, by the latter, in the House of Representatives,
in consequence of an article C\ hioh
e. appeared in the Richmond Exainii.i r, and
cs which, Mr. Footo said, he had reason to believe
lie was written by Mr. Mitchell. The trial was a
d, very lengthy one, and concluded *bv Messrs.
