V ,43i-. & Jj t Jtt nixrn . Junction City, Kansas, SATUBDAY, APRIL 11, 1803. ii THE NEWS. There is no confirmation, by the last mail, of the leport of the full of Charleston. We publish elsewhere all that is known of the matter. Yet there are those who believe it. We are in hopes it may be so it would but be a step to other victories, which would speedily result in a glorious peace. Gold would then come down to its real value, and the confidence thus established would sweep the Rebellion into the Gulf. Admitting the report of the fall of Charles ton to be false, the reports we have of recent elections throughout the North betoken the unanimity of the people, and the death of Copperheadism. St. Louis has elected a radi cal Republican ticket. The Republicans have also carried Connecticut. f Cincinnati also elects a straight-out Union ticket, as does also Sandusky; Indianapolis, and other parts of Indiana, jtive large Union gains. In Missouri gains are given the Union cause Jefferson i City, Kansas City and Weston having wheeled into the ranks of loyalty. The President has issued his proclamation, designating Thursday, the 30th of April, as a day of national humiliation, fasting and prayer. m The Leavenworth Election. In accord ance with our hopes and expectations, Colonel Anthony has been chosen Mayor of this city, by the largest majority ever given. The ma jority is about 744. It is an unmistakeable index to public sentiment in that place, for everybody knew the Colonel to be, as the Con servative states it, "our most radical, most abolition man." The Conservative styles it a " Vindication of John Brown," and adds that "Colonel Anthony never knew fear, and he will make Leavenworth the most orderly city in the West." The Times calls it the ' Straight-out-anti-conservative republican-unconditional Union" ticket. FROM THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC. We arc permitted to make the following ex tracts of a private letter received by a gentle man in this place. The writer has been a resident of Alabama; lie is orthodox. BATTraT " C," 4th U. S. Art'y, Hancock's ) Div., Falmouth, Va., March 28, 1863. $ " How is the undercurrent of public opinion in Noith Alabama, or rather, how waa it when you left ? I cannot believe that North Alabama is without its righteous Lot altogether, though in similar sections in Virginia we meet with the most fanatical and ignorant opposition. I sup pose slavery is maintained throughout by the force of the poor devils who never had never can have a slnve, but who ore superstitiously wedded to ' Southern Rights,' and hatred of everything that is Yankee, as they call every thing north of the famous line.' "1 left Secessia before actual hostilities had begun, and as soon as I touched my native soil 1 volunteered. " I was w;,.h McClellan in the first battle of any note in Vir ginia, and was with him in his last in Maryland. Ihae seen the elephant of this war, and am anxious to see its close ; not, however, until Uncle Sam has indicated his honor and Aeed every slave. I am now a ' teetotal' Abolitionist, since the South will have it so, and stand pre pared to die in defence of human rights, in preference to the rights of any party or section. I stand on this plank : Annihilate slavery, if to do so, we are obliged to depopulate the South ! Let the war last five, ten or fifty years, or uutil this object has been accomplished. The United States has been guilty of a great national sin, for which oceans of blood alone will atone, and let it flow. When our fathers bequeathed us the blessings of liberty, they also left us a legacy in the curse of slavery, which threatens to more than counterbalance the blessing. Even some of our protended great statesmen, since the break ingout of the war, have offered us the 'Union as it was. What ! make a national compact with the nation's shame, and sell the national soul for a few j'ears peace and a few dollars in treasure? The fear of God seems to have left their hearts entirely. They seem to have forgotten all the lessons of history which teach us, if they teach us anything at all, that great national injustice is sure to be followed by great national retribu tion. It were better we get rid of this horrible incubus at once, though it impoverish us and millions of lives be wasted, than attempt to per petuate the evil at the price of the germ of real liberty which has been planted on our shores. The boasted tree of liberty is yet a mere sapling; but it promises fair, if we can only persuade our people it were better to cherish it than cut it down to make way for a cotton plant and a nig ger. How long will our people and statesmen hide the trutli from their hearts ? It is enough to make one sick of a Republican Government to see the impunity with which the rebel sympa thisers in the North utter their sentiments, and threaten to use their power as they now use their influence. In a despotism this war would have been decided long ago, considering the number and resources of the belligerents. But here the Government must temporise and pander to the 'butternut' tastes, and waste golden opportuni ties, on account of a corrupted nr Department, or some croaking newspaper editor who never fails to cry, ' I told you so, when any mistake or mysterious movement is made, and gets the publio excited for or against some general or policy, according as the ' party interest ' may be concerned. "But these things are all as transparent as crystal, and I am only wasting time inrepeating thtm, VT.H.M." THE HEOBO IHSjpHCT, A correspondent of the New York Tribune, writing from Cairo, says : " I recently had a lone account of the condition of the slaves on the plantations, from an intelligent black who both reads and writes, and who having been with our army nearly two years, took pains to inform himself on the subject. He says that when our troops first occupied Tennessee and other slave regions, the slaves expected they would be called upon to fight, and that they were very anxious to enter the service. When they were not called upon their ardor abated, and they were directed by those of their number who most influence them, to keep quiet and go on as before, aud even behaving so well that their masters would have no suspicions. I was not a little surprised to learn that the man by whom they wish to be led is Jim Lane. They have heard their masters curse him more than any other Northern man, consequently they look upon him as their friend. This is in the South western Slave States ; in the Gulf States, Fre mont is the man." At present. Col. Montgomery, one of our Jim Lane Kansas men, is leading a regiment of ne groes into the heart of Florida, conquering all rebels with whom he comes in contact. It would be a blessed good thing if Gen. Lane were placed at the head of a colored brigade and started into rebeldom, with instructions to exterminate rebels and increase his forces. He would do both. HOW TO MAKE A FENCE. After suitably preparing the ground with the plow, plant small cottonwood trees, three or four feet apart. Between these trees plant wild grape vines. From time to time, as. the vines grow to a suitable length, weave them together, like net-work, and give them a turn or two around the trees. After a while perhaps you will have a good fence. If you think the vine is not strong enough to resist cattle, get one as large as your finger, and pull away at it to your heart's content. All that I can now say is, that I am making the experiment. Perhaps you may hear the result after a few years. In the meantime, suppose you make this or some other experiment. W. T. THE OATY MURDERERS AVENGED. Seventeen Guerrilla Killed and Two Hong The Contrabands Recovered. The following dispatch was received last night : Lone Jack, Mo., April 4. Maj. Gen. Blunt: I have dispersed Colonel Hick's band of Bushwhackers. Have killed seventeen and hung two. We have recovered a number of the contrabands kidnapped from the steamer Gaty, and burned twenty-one houses of the men engaged in that massacre. During the expedition we have captured beven rebel camps, with all their ammuni tion and equipage. Major Ransom, Sixth Kansas Cavalry. Conservative, 1th. Rumored Capture of Charleston ! The New York Herald's Washington special states a report has reached there by the way of Fredericksburg, derived from rebel sources, that Charleston was bom barded by our fleet, and attacked by our land forces on Thursday tbe 2d inst., and is now in tbe possession of the Federal under Gen. Hunter and Admiral Dupont. This report is fully oredited by promi nent officers of the Government, who are in possession of facts in reference to the con templated attack on Charleston, but which h not yet prudent to divulge. It is certain, however, that those who possess this infor mation are confident that our sailors and soldiers will celebrate the second anniver sary of the fall of Fort Sumptcr in the cap tured city of Charleston. . The restrictions on publications in South crn papers are so stringent that it is not expected to find much in them in reference to the capture of Charleston until tbe dis aster can no longer be concealed, but reports which have arrived at Washington are definite and positive, and are believed by those who have the best right to know what foundation there is for ihem. Another dispatch says that Washington is nervous over news derived from rebel sources, that Charleston had fallen j that our attack commenced Friday, and was overwhelmingly successful. m The Approaching Campaign. All reasonable men have come to the conclusion that another year of war, at least, is before them, and perhaps more. The peace delusion has blown away. Neith er from foreign intervention, nor from the imperious decrees of King Cotton, nor from the imagined friendship of the Northwest, nor from the stupid rumors about tbe de moralization of tbe Yankee armies, does any hope of peace dawn upon the land. We must fight or submit. What balucinn tion soever may be cherished by politicians, the soldiers in the field want to know, and want to be told, the plain truth, and the truth is that we are right in tbe middle of the war, and during the spring and summer the war is to be more fierce and unrelenting than ever before. The Yankee enemy is onlv beginning to fight. To buy provisions for the army at current rates would call for tho imposition of a great debt upon our posterity, such as would cause our cnuaren to cu.se us in our graves. Richmond Ex aminer. A rebel disDatcb dated st Chattano- ga, April 2d, says : The gunboats on the Tennessee have been driven back by our sharpshooters. The iron clads attempted to land at Tuscumbia this morning at day light, and were attacked by our cavalry outposts. A heavy cannonading ensued, but without effect. Unsuccessful efforts were made to land a party, and the iron clads backed down tbe river. There has been no battle in front. Heavy skirmish ing has been going on- at McMinville. There are no signs thus far of the expected attack. There baa been no landing in force on. any, of the islands below, as reported. Terrible Oatragw Star Fart lettL A correspondent of the Leavenworth Conservative, writing from Fort Scott un der date of April 2d, gives the following account of a series of most horrible out rages committed in that vicinity : " Considerable excitement exists here at the present time, caused by a series of atrocious outrages, committed within a short distance of this place. The main particu lars, as received from a witness, are these: "On Tuesday night, March 31st, some men knocked at the door of Esq. Modde's house, in the night time, while the inmates were alabed, and demanded instant admit tance, under threats of setting on fire and burning tbe building over their heads. This occurred about nine miles east of Fort Scott, on tbe Papinsville road, in Missouri. As might be expected, the family were greatly alarmed, not knowing the number engaged in this unexpected midnight at tack. Mr. E. M. Requa, a neighbor, was stop ping at tbe house that night, and as soon as he beard the knocks and noise outside, jumped out of bed, and, seizing his pistols, made towards tbe ooor. lie demanded what they wanted. A voice replied that unless the door was opened immediately they would break it down and fire the house. Almost at the same instant that this demand was made, two shots were fired through the door, without, however, hitting any one. When tbe door was forced, Mr. Requa, without other clothing than shirt and drawers on, ran out past the men two in number who immediately commenced firing on him, without effect ; although two shots passed through his shirt within an inch of his right side. He stood his ground at close quarters, and returned the fire until he had exchanged six shots with there as sassins, at a distance of, fifteen feet ; with a cool and deliberate aim, he fired two shots at one of his assailants, without any appar ent damage. " Mr. K. is a brave man, and a good pistol shot. It was a clear moonlight nigbt and as a matter of course this result some wbat staggered him. " The next day he examined the spot where tbe fellow stood, and found two bul lets flattened out, a button and a piece of a man's drawers. This seemed conclusive, as he expected at the time that they were protected by some kind of armor worn beneath the clothing. " Mr. R. retired from this unequal contest a short distance for observation. Tbe men entered tbe house, and robbed the owner of $102, carried off Mr. Requa' s overcoat, knife, saddle, and pocket book, containing about $55 in money, together with some papers of use only to the owner. " They then proceeded to the house of Mr. oou ruff, a farmer, living about one mile farther east, and killed him. Mr. W. was 35 years of ago, nnd a cripple. He leaves a wife and four children. " They next went to the house of Smiley Sample. Mr, S. lived on the same road, three miles further east, and his family consisted of a wife, one grown daughter and two children. Him they also killed This is tbe second time this family have been made to suffer, and it is supposed by the same men, or parties intimately con nected or associated with them. " Lust winter the bouse was attacked, robbed nnd one of the daughters killed. " Both of these murdered men were peaceable, inoffensive, and outspoken in their adhesion and support of the Union. " It is not pretended or charged that these marauders or assassins are connected with or belong to Livingston's gang of bushwhackers; but outlaws, who are eu gaged in horse stealing and robbery, for tbe sake of tbe gains, and instigated by motives of revenge." An Arrival from a Southern Prison. About eleven months ago eighteen pri vates belonging to the Ohio regiments weie detailed by tbe late General Mitchell for special duty, and accordingly penetrated Georgia for the destruction of railroads, and otherwise to damage the enemy; but the rebels captured and hung seven, and confining the remainder of them in dun geons, treating them as felons. On Monday six of the number ai rived in Washington, having been sent to Fortress Monroe under a flag of truce. Tbe others, it is supposed, escaped from prison. Since then, by re quest, the returned soldiers had an inter- teresting interview with the Judge Advo cate, General Holt, and also with the Secretary of War, in the presence of a large number of army officers, Tbe Secre tary presented each of them with a medal, Buch as was authorized by the late Congress, for meritorious conduct, these being the first bestowals of that character. In addi tion to this, he gave to each of them a hundred dollars, and ordered the payment of the arrearages, and a sum equivalent to that taken from them by tbe rebels. He also requested Gov. Tod to appoint these men as lieutenants in the volunteer service. In tbe event of his not doing so, tbey will be brevetted lieutenants in the regular ser vice. Tbey afterwards had an interview with the President, at the Executive Man sion. War Press. A Peace Party im the Seat. The most startling feature of late South ern news is the reported formation of a Southern Peace party, led by Henry S. Foote, the editor of tbe Richmond Whig, and others. Tbe Enquirer, edited by John Mitchell denounces it. The Enquirer's course is disapproved by the money lend ing men 'in the rebel Congress. It is probable resolutions on this subject will pass the lower House before adjournment. Gen. Toombs has resigned his position in the Southern Army! He says he can not longer bold a commission under Jeff Davis with advantage to the ootatry or with honor to biamlf. t Tekpaphio MfeeeUaay. The President's Proclamation causes tbe return of fifteen hundred deserters daily to ineir regiuiuu. uiwuuswnuing tne time laid down in tbo proclamation for their re turn has expired, the Government is dis posed to deal leniently with all who return to their regiments. A notorious secessionist named General Williamson, formerly Attorney General of Maryland, was arrested by order of Judge Advocate Turner, while en route from Can ada to Richmond. On searching his bag-r gage a large number of letters were found showing that he was in correspondence with ' the rebels, and involving prominent parties j in New York and Baltimore. He was sent to Fort Lafayette. Our relations with Great Britain are con sidered by those who are conversant with them, as extremely delicate. A correspondence is still going on touch ing the construction and equipment in British waters of piratical crafts, conducted on tbe part of John Bull in a tone which is unfriendly, if not menacing and provoca tive of war. Information has been received, contra dicting positively tbe reported preparations to evacuate Richmond. These reports were based upon movements of troops and ma terial sent from Richmond to strengthen the defence at other points of the Confed eracy. It is believed, however, that they are erecting formidable defences at Chatta nooga, as a place for a last grand rally in case of being compelled to retire from tbe borders. Tbe Chattanooga Rebel says a blow will be struck before tbe June roses bloom, which will unfetter the long manacled Ken tuckians. From the Mississippi. A Cairo dispatch, dated April 4th, says : By arrival of steamer Bostona No. 2, we have news from Young's Point to Thursday night. It is stated upon the authority of scouts and deserters that the enemy moved a large part of their force within the past week from the Point to the rear of tho city, to meet an expected attack from the Federals at Yazoo Pass or Haines' Bluff. Yazoo city has also been formidably rein forced. Greenwood has likewise been strengthened. Tbe large guns formerly used in tbe batteries along the river, in front and below Vicksburg, have been removed to the rear and Quakers substitu ted. Heavy batteries have also been erect ed on tbe flats below and opposite tbe mouth of the canal, at a high elevation, command ing operations there which have been actively in use, and digging and drediug is nearly suppressed. Last Monday nigbt during an excessively strong storm of wind and rain, the Con federate gunboat Yicksburg broke from bcr moorings, and before she could be secured, floated in the stream, and quickly fell into Admiral Farragut's bands below. Affairs in Richmond. Paroled prisoners direct from Richmond state that the actual want of bread and meat begins to press upon the Rebels. Families nf the poorer and middle classes in the vicinity of Richmond actually suffer for the necessities of life. Tbe regular army ration with the rebels is twelve ounces of flour and a quarter of a pound of meat per day. Our own army ration is twenty-two ounces of flour and a pound and a quarter of meat. Union prisoners in Richmond receive the same rations as tbe rebel soldiers, and are not permitted to purchase even bread in ad dition. Released prisoners, just arrived in Wash ington from Richmond state that all that buoys the rebels up now is tbo aid and comfort which they receive from the dem onstration of tbe Copperheads, and the belief that the North-West is tired of the war, and will soon refuse to contribute further aid to its proseoution. If once con vinced of the falsity of this belief, tbe rebel Government could not hold their army together. They say that there is consider able Union feeling in the South. In North Carolina the Union men are in the major ity, and the expulsion of the rebel forces from that State would be joyfully regarded by a majority of the citizens of the State, who would gladly return to the protection of the Union T uia 79m, $, The state of currency aiet.Bjuch at tention in Richmond.

Tbe reasons assigned for this rapid rise are. tbe improbability of an early peace, the flight from the Confederacy of all foreigners who take gold at any price, the position of Con gress as to a tax bill, tbe arbitrary impress ment of food, &c. Still later news declares that in Fredericksburg $6 $6.50 in Confederate paper are freely offered for gold, $3.50 Confederate for $1 greenback. At $6.50 Confederate paper is a little oyer 15 cents to the dollar.
