Washington, Jan. 81,
Tho announcement that the President hod
Issued an order calling for half a million of
men, which was noised about in the hotels
this evening, created much excitement. It
was entirely unexpected, even by Sena

nearest official relations with the

on the President this evening did not learn
of its existence until their return.
There has been great anxiety felt in mili

The Government advices contain
nothing to cause apprehension.

prominent friends are sure, that if passed,
Grant will have the appointment, and will
not come to Washington, but remain at
Chattanooga, but be no longer subject to

Washington, Jan. 31.—1t will be reeol-
leetcd that in October a call for 800,000 men
was made. This number has been about half
filled by volunteering and. re-enlistments.
The call now made for 500,000' Is interpreted
by a gentleman acquainted with military af
fairs, to include the above 800,000, being in
effect an additional call for 200,000 men. The
volunteering is supposed- to famish at pre
sent an average of 200 per day. The ordecof

CoLuacars, 0., Jan. 31, 18iM,
There was a sensation in tbc House to-day.
Last week, a Copperhead named Larwcll, of
Ashland, was ousted because he did not re
ceive as many votes ns his opponent, who
was refused a certificate of election by a Cop
perhead County Clerk. The South Carolina
representative protested against the action,
falsely stating that Larwcll had been refused
a bearing by counsel to his protest. The ma
jority of the House yesterday pa&cd a reso
lution, declaring it to be untrae. To-day the
Copperheads entered a .protest against this
resolution, In which they used undignified,
discourteous and ungentlemanly conduct to
wards the Union men. The protest west
upon the Journal Is as required by the con
stitution, but Mr. Delano, (Union) notified
the aforesaid Copperheads that the majority
had rights as well as a minority, and they had
bettcr’rcspcct them.
Waste paper Olds then Inflicted on the
House a speech terribly long and dull, bat
an excellent plea for martyrdom. He begged
members to exnel him, to censure him, so
that he could be a martyr. He coald well
afford to be one; is be not getting up a new
church, which of course must have saints,and
the quickest way to become a saint was by
road of martyrdom, but alas for the would-be
solut, bis truck was too plain, and the ma
jority allowed him to take bis seat , without
designing to moke the least reply or take
notice of what he said. A more com
plete failure has. not occurred during
the session. It is whispered around
to-night, that he will make another trial on
Monday. The copperheads are so much at a
loss for political capital that they are seeking
to get np an expulsion, In order to create sym
pathy for them. Their loyalty will soon be
tried as the teat oath will pass the Senate in a
few days. When it was before the House there
was no small amount of squirming and wrang
ling among the copperheads ; 12 ol them voted
to change the title of the bill to an act for the
encouragement of peijury, thus practically,
confessing that they could not swear that
they bad not yielded voluntary support to
auy pretented government authority, power,
or constitution within the United States,
hostile or inimical thereto, without commit
ting perjury.

By steamer C. E. BJ Imau arrived
from Memphis this evening, we have Mem
phis advices to the evening of the 2Sth. The
Hillman had a great trip of passengers, nom
bering in the neighborhood of twelve hun
dred people, a large number of whom were
re-enlisted soldiers going home on furlough.
Among these was the. 12th Mich. In-
Cmtry, 850 strong, including officers; also one
company of the 3rd Minnesota.
By the arrival of the steamer Diadem, we
have Memphis papers with late interesting
news from below.
About 4 o’clock on the afternoon of Satur
day, the 2Sd inst., the steamer J. J. Famen
was burned at Walker’s Bend. As soon as
the fire was discovered the boat was immedi
ately headed for the shore. The fire spread
with great rapidity. The tiller rope soon
burned off, leaving the boat unmanageable.
At this time the flames had made such prog
ress that the passageway was closed. But
the captain and pilot, with great presence of
mind, climbed down the back part of theboat,
seizing the tiller, and at the same time giv
ing directions to the engineer. The boat was
kept on the course to the shore. It was ow
ing to the courage and presence of mind of
her officers that no lives were lost. The fire
was discoveredT>y the captain who ran down
iuto.the cabin and gave the alarm, and com
menced collecting the money deposited by
passengers In the safe. This was all saved,
-Two hundred dollars belonging to the boat
w»s I’timed. All on board lost all their cloth--
Ing eare what th v had on at the time.
The arc originated in ally cords o'‘dry wood
trhich had hoen piled near the hollers be
coming Ignited. She homed rapidly. | :
The Diadem soon came np and took off her'
crew. Among the passengers was Dr. Dick
inson, of Memphis, who lost a considerable
snmof money, besides clothing, ic. The
boat was owned by Hart & Co., 01, Memphis, ■
and Is a total loss with what valuables were
on board of her. The Diadem took ,
aboard a family whose members had been
robbed the same day by the notorious Qnan
trcll’s band, and compelled to seek refuge in
flight.. The house was burned. Tholmoril
las had carried of the owner and took ont the
goods with the intention ol burning them.
Thrf captured man's wife gave them S2OO to
desist from their undertaking, which they
agreed to do. She afterwards wont for as
sistance. The nest morning they burned the
house, but subsequently released the owner.
Quantrcl Is said to be operating to a consid
erable extent in the Interior. Here also Mr.
Wade, who had- been captured by Qnantrsli,
and taken ont into the woods for execution
but afterwards robbed of S2OO, came aboard
and was brought up. •
On previous occasions they Lad robbed him
of horses. Mr. Moore and party then started
out in pursuit of his assail ants, who were
still lingering in the neighborhood. Tnoy
came np with a party of ten then In the houao
of Mr. Alfred Smith, near the church in Ma
cedonia, moat of them being asleep. Their
Captain first became aware of their advance,
and shouted to his men, “Yankeesboys! Yan
kees! and then run oft In his consterna
tion, leaving behind his hat, coat and boots.
Several shots wero fired after him with no
other effect than to add wings to his bootless
heels. Oncofhis men rushed ontofthehonse
;aud ran also and was called upon to halt
. but contlnug to run was fired upon and
; wounded by eight buckshot entering his
. back. The other men fired several rounds
. but without effect. Finding- themselves ef
fectually trapped, surrendered Eight pris
oners besides the wounded were captured to
gether with their horses, saddles- and equipa
ges, also nine guns and some ammunition,
aho captors started to bring tliolr.prisoner
to Memphis, but on reaching the plank road
the men begged piteously to be allowed
to depart, offering to beg- pardon on
their knees for any injury they might have
inflicted, and promised to return* to
.Mississippi and never to trouble that
neighborhood again. Unfortunately their
prnj ers were listened to, and they were
turned loose. The next day one of the men
returned and asked that their horses -and
arms might be given back. They were an
swered that nothing would be given npun
less it should be proved they were the prop
erty of unoffending citizens, and if they did
not leave as agreed they would be compelled
to do so. Learning from a wounded man
.that Maj. Stewart had started to go to Mr •
Jones’ in the same neighborhood, Mr. Mor
ris s parly set off in search of him. He was
not to be found. The party went after the
remainder of his gang, and pursued them in
to the borders of the State of Mississippi.
This gang is one that some weeks
logo seized twenty-nine negroes on Wolf river,
not far from the city. Eightornine escaped.

The Little Rock Unconditional Union is the
title of a new newspaper published at Little
Rock. The first number is received, from
which it appears that the editors are Messrs.
Wm. Fishback and T. D. W, Tanley. In
their prospectus they declare themselves for
the Union without ifs or 6ufcf, shrinking
from dastardly neutrality for the Union at
all hazards and at whatever cost, ignoring
party polßics and standing on no other plat
form than that of the Union.

particulars from respectable residents of Tip*
ton county.
On.the morning of the 10th. some guerillas
appeared at the residence of Mr. Moore,

by the rebels withoat.effect. The gnerilas
were under command of Capt. Thompson and
Major Stewart They were led by Lieut

party and wounded! he lieutenant’s horse. This,
unexpected opposition took the marauders
by surprise and they rode* away. Expecting
another visit, the Tipton county gentlemen
made their preparations. While Mr. Moore

except breaking to pieces an old useless gin.
