There Is reason to believe that Gen. Sher
man is heard fro®, and safe. Accounts are
contradictory hut only as to the “point
reached in hlsjrctrogradation. Its very certain
that he Is on his xctnrn, bavyigdoae much
to the harm of the rebels, much to their dis
comfiture and distress, r'qsd most of all to
their chagrin, if he escapes, ihat his inarch
5i.»0 the vciy bowels of their land,' Without
iu jxrfwicute ofhis own, has met with so few
Impediments from them. The 'Washington
dispatches have been for two days past
rrther obscurely calming that Sher
man had done all that was expected
of him. If he really has thrown a force
across from Vicksburg to Selma and got safe
bfcck again, it Is true that he has done more
than any one conld have expected in the face
of the failure of the plan which deprived Iflm
of the support of Smith's cavalry force, and
of the columns moving from Chattanooga
and Huntsville, Be did not indeed lose oil
practical assistance from them, for to the
diversions thus caused his own marvellous
immunity, if such be realized, is due. It
if col now possible to make his
tory of the comprehensive scheme thus end-
I'd. It will always have the semblance of an
nUcmpt to unite from opposite directions a
very powerful force in the heart of Alabama.
“NVhut might have been accomplished by such
a Union can readily be imagined. All is not
of disappointment, however. It Is something
to have thus traversed the rebel interior and
entailed the waste and devastation upon
their communications and stores. The
event of the past few weeks, supposing Sher
man to be safe, is -decidedly a score against
the rebels and a happy augury of the cam
paign it opens.
The interesting and fall summary of events
In our Chattanooga letter makes all that any
one can or ought reasonably main* of the
week's operations following the movement
againbt Tunnel BUL As a demonstration In
fiivorof Sherman, it was successful, hut
might have been more so if made sooner.
There is reason to believe that the delay was
a disappointment to Gen. Grant It is sln
,miurly unfortunate that Gen. Smith's caval
ry expedition from Memphis, designed to fill
precisely the same relation to the great plan,

and failure In aportion of that command to
curry out promptly the orders of the Com
mauder-m-Chief.
A colored delegation from Louisiana visited
President Lincoln yesterday, to ask Ids inter
position to secure them thg- privilege of
voting. His reply is characteristic of the
Van. and worthy of him. He does not hesi
tate to avow a lack of personal prejudice
against them, but reminds them that the sub
ject matter of their request is not in the
range oi his present undertaking. This ‘flblg
job" must be finished first, when all minor
questions will find adjustment.

The whisky bill as passed yesterday by the
Senate's receding from its disagreements,
pots a naked tax of sixty cents a gallon on
all liquors distilled and sold, or distilled and
removed for consumption or sale previous to
Ist July next. It retains the forty cents a
gallon on foreign liquors on hand, bnt does
nortaxnny domestic spirits on hand. As it
stands the law is a muddle of legislation
which will demand further tinkering before
an end is reached. Whisky is responsible for
many evil matters in the community, and has
iuily luhlutnined Its reputation by tha.long
protracted and still unsatisfactory imbroglio
which lias engaged Congress.

THE GETTYSBURG REVELATION.
Painful, shameful, -oa it may be, we arc
vainest in the hope that the Tell may be tom
uwuy which hides the Q1 machinery and cyH
engineering, whose work basbeen registered
in the losses, shames, sacrifices, and dearly
bought laurels of the noble army of the Po
tomac. The bones of their fallen heroes
whiten many a Virginia hillside. The wrecks
of their valor arc watered by tears in multi
tudes of Northern homes. Their painful
marches and countermarches in Virginia, their
mile* of trenches and earthworks thrown up,
under tlic supervision of dainty officers who
held that this was only a white man’s war;
the toilsome movements made only to be re
traced; the sending forward of regiments and
divisions to be mown down unsupported,
the sacrifices of these thousands of heroes
to the spleen, to the malice, to the stupidity,
imd to the treachery of commanders, these
nil constitute the pages in this war, on which
iire inscribed the annals of the.army of the
Potomac, a record brightened indeed by the
abundant proofs of the quality of the mate
rial. but inexpressibly sddened by Its waste
without recompense, loss without reason, or
restitution. The recent exposure of General
31 cade, the unmasking of the shameful secret
of Gettysburg is salutary if unwelcome. It
has not come too soon. It shows that Meade
was himself, and not belied In his allowing
Lee to escape him in Maryland, and that it
was to a kind Providence, and not to
Meade, that we were spared the
*h»tuc of a dlsgracctol retreat of onr
forces in the very heart of Pennsylvania, the
consequences of which who can contemplate
without as' udder. The revelation is only
Justice to a commander who has long enough
wrrn bogus laurels. It is eminent justice
to an army about whose command a strange
ly jKjrvcrfie fatality has clung. It has come
in time to save a worse disaster, for the Gen
eral who ordered a retreat in the face of aloe
whose feet had invaded Northern homcs,who
held back from pursuit when a broken and
disorganized foe might have been pursued
and destroyed, cannot too soon beputbeyond
danger of repeating himself Who Is to suc
ceed Gen. Meade ?

\\\‘ have received a circular and accompanying
manuscript, for which latter an insertion is asked
in our columns. The purport is that J. K. Gray, of
Br.shnclh McDonough county, Illinois, is collect
ing aid for the widows and orphans by the “mur
derous and bloody raid upon Lawrence. Kansas,
by Qoantrdl and ids band." We do not know this
Mr. Gray, bet we cannot believe him very prompt,
■even if he Is charitable. The Lawrence outrage
took place months ago. was liberally met at the'
time, and if Mr. Gray has only recently woke up to
the call, it is lucky the widows and orphans did
not have to wait forliim. Briefly, we suspect Ur.
Gray Is a humbug; and recommend him to better
business forthwith. Wc cannot urge donations in
money to be sent to his address.

FROM CniTTiKOO&I.
An Inlerc*tlmr Resume of the Late
movement*.
[From Our Own Correspondent]
Chattamoooa, Feb. 53,1964.
The recent movement is at an end. Daring 1U
progress I have sent yon information daily; hot the
’ line of coramnnlcation was long, uncertain and lia
ble to the perils of censorship. It may not, there
fuje, be amiss to recapitulate, premising, however,
that the whole movement amounts simply to an ad
vance of Gen. Grant's center. Other purposes have
been attained.
1 bare heretofore Informed too that A portion of
Hardee's army bad iwen withdrawn from Dalton,
and moved Sooth, with the evident intention of re
inforcing the troops intended to maneuver
against Sherman. This movement of Thom
as* army has compelled the rebel lead
en to detain the remainder of the army
abom Dalton, at that point, and in $o
much assisted Sherman's movement. This ob
viously was a part of the grand strategy of the pres
ent campaign auxiliary to the movements of the
main attacking column, as was the expedition at
an earlier date, of Morgan L. Smith to Lebanon,
Alabama. The movement was commenced by
concentrating at Cleveland Stanley's division of the
4th corps, under command of Crufts, and a pro
visional division of the 36tb corps un
der General Mathias, with the ad
vance of Crofts' command thrown forward
to Bine Spring, on the line of the East Tennessee
and Dalton rood. At the same time the advance of
the 14th corps was moved forward, near Ringgold,
on the line of the railroad from Chattanooga to
Dalton. That these preparations were not known
to the enemy, is evident from the fact, that Cheat
ham's division moved south from Dalton as late as
Friday night, while other divisions were pnt under
orders to more at a moment's notice in the
direction.
On Monday, the 23d, the army com
menced moving, as the positions indi
cate, in two columns. The first, under the
command of Gen. Thomas, and compris
ing a part of the 32th Corps under Gen. Hooker,
and a part of the 14th Corps, Gen. J, M. Palmer,
moved along the road from Chattanooga to Dalton.
The Second moved down the valley from Cleve
land towards Dalton. Gen. Palmer took the ad
vance of the first column. His advance consisted
of the 2Sth Kentucky mounted Infantry, S9th Indi
ana mounted Infantry, and 2d cavalry, and John
son's Division. The rebel pickets were met
near Ringgold and driven in by the mounted
force with little resistance. In the mean
time the left column had moved as for
as Red Clay, fifteen miles sooth of Cleveland,
without opposition. A advance force of the
4th Michigan cavalry, about six miles below Red
Clay, came upon a superior force of the enemy and
was compelled to fall back upon the main mbrniw
with a loss of three wounded. The rebels, who
had advanced in pursuit, were tn turn driven to
wards Dalton. On Tuesday Thomas’ column
moved at daylight. Johnson’s division being still
in the advance. The enemy's pickets were soon
found in line across the bottom, about two miles
and a half from Ringgold.
His picket Use was very strong, bat readily gave
way before our mounted advance. The enemy In
dicating a disposition to contest the further ad
vance of onr troops, Carlin’s, King's and Stark
weather’s brigades, of Johnson’s division, were
advanced in line of battle, with the 10th Illinois
and&Sth Indiana deployed as skirmishers. The
rebels had thrown up a temporary barricade and
owned a - sharp fire, but our wfctrmtwtiHm—iSrrrrtr -
them from their position, the-cavalry under Har
rison driving them in utter route. In
this affair the Nineteenth Illinois lost a
sergeant killed and several men wounded. This
affair, althonsb without any severe fighting, was a
most brilliant skirmish. The advance ofthe col
umn met no farther opposition and Tmxnell Bill
was occupied by the division oi Johnson, and sub
sequently relieved Tjv that of Jeff. C. Davie. The
column under Crofts met with some
sharp skirmishing daring the day
but succeeded in driving the enemy’s cavalry pick
ets within three miles of Dalton. It however fell
hack ittion the main Ixxly at night fall.
On the side of Dalton towards Tunnel Hill is a
hill, or rather ridze, of considerable elevation. It
Is called by tbc citizens Rock-Faced Ridge, end is a
military position of great natural strength. It bad
been fortified hr the rebels, and is the ker to tbe
occupation of Dalton. At tbe time of tbe move
ment U was held by two divisions of Hardee’s
corns, and the events of the day showed he had
twelve pieces of artillery in jfOPition.
Wednesday was occupied in movingthe two col
umns np to attacking distance of Kocky-Faced
Ridge. The trooiw under General Crafts met with
continual skirmishing with the enemy—principally
caralrr. In the afternoon, however, he came upon
the infantry pickets, drove them in with his skir
mishers an dr cavalry, and bivouacked In readiness
to attact the cast end of the ridge in the morning.
General Thomas, General Crufts not being np as
expected, ordered Gen. Palmer to throw forward a
sufficient force to feel the enemy, develop hla posi
tion and strength.- and to cover the movement of
CruitV command on tbe left. The execution of
the order was given by Palmer to Jeff. 0. Davis.
Davis at once put his division in position—Geo.
John Ring's brigade on the riebt. Carlin’s and
Starkweather’s, (commanded by Hambricht) on tbe
center, and Morgan on the left. Tbe brigade
moved rapidly, end with great steadiness. Into po
sition, under a severe shelling from the rebel bat
teries. Onr artillery replied, but with little effect.
The shells were defective, and did not explode.
Onr men snfierod some loss by the artillery fire,
bnt ns soon as they were formed. Morgan’s brigade
dashed forward at the double quick, and turned the
rebel right. The left and center three brig
ades rushed forward with a will and shout.
The enemy broke and were driven in
disorder back towards tbe ridge. They once rallied
and made a stand, and opened their artillery.
Another charge from Davis drove them back to the
ridge. Tide gallant action of Davie' division and
the cavalry resulted in the capture of some two
hundred jnisoners, among them a Colonel and a
number oi line officers. Our loss was not severe.
HarJQgtl>eveoperatloDsGenerai;Cmfts succeeded
in bringing his force into a position from which be
could form the left in tbe proposed demonstration
of the next day.
Thursday morning Gen. Craft!, in pursuance of
Gen. Thomas’ orders, opened the battle with a vig
orous artillery lire, t-helling the enemy’s right. Un
der cover of this fire he moved Stanley’s division
of the 4tb corps, and was soon engaged with the
enemy on the east end of Bockv Faced Eldge. Sim
olmneocriy with this attack, the artillery of the
14th corps opened a rapid and fierce Are. At the
signal four brigades—two from the 4th and two
from the mb corps—advanced. With a heavy line
of skirmishers they resolutely and steadily pushed
the rebels from point to point along the Kidge,
This tWmiishhig continued until late in the after
noon. with the advantage In onr favor. Craft’s
men were doing well. Palmer’s right
Dan. McCook’s brigade was succeeding finely.
Morgan however drove them into entrenchments,
from which he could not dislodge them. He was
forced to fail hack with considerable loss. His
men fought with great gallantry but were unsuc
cessful for once. Tbe Goth Illinois and 10th Michi
gan suffered severely in tbe assault upon the rebel
rifle-pits.
The day’s work accomplished all that was neccs
eorr to ascertain the strength and position of the
enemy. During the night the column under Gen.
Cruft’s was withdrawn, and on Friday and Satur
day the right and center fell back to Tonnel
lift), i regret to record among the casualties the
mortal wounding of Cob Mibriotzki, of the 24th -
Illinois. Be received the wound during a heavy
picket fire on the night of the 26th. Col. lEhaotzkl
was an educated soldier, had seen service in Eu
rope, and was an officer of rank when be left bis
home in Hungary. At tbe time the dty of Chicago
was celled upon to furnish a contingent for tbe oc
cnpatlon of Cairo, Mihalotzki was ready with a
company to take the field. Tour readers will re
member a company of short Germans, in green
coot*, armed with Ynjrcr rlflee that iiiroM the
streets on that memorable Sabbath—Mihalotzki
was its Captain. , , .
At the expiration of tie three months’ service he
assisted in the recruiting of the 24th Illinois, going
ont as its Major, he became finally Its Colonel. In
him the country looses one of its bemt and baft
officers. Onr total loss will not exceed 300,1 think
it will be Jess than that number. About 100 of them
have already been brought into Chattanooga.
From Knoxville I have reliable advices to the
covet that Longstreet has left SchofteJcTs front a
week ago. Last Friday his cavalry came within
two miles of Knoxville. On Friday onr trains ran
to Strawberry Plains, and onr cavalry rvere
nt Norristown. At the latter place a brisk
skirmish took place, in which we had fifteen men
wounded. The rebels, a rear guard, were soon
driven. Where Dongstrcct has gone is unknown,
but will not be for any length of rime. Onr troops
arc pursuing him. Parson Brownlow and family
are on their way North, >for the purpose of leaving
liis daughter at school.
Gen, Palmer arrived in Chattanooga tins morning
from the front.

The President received the deputation cordially,

Morni! l , March 1, via Cairo, March 4,1861.
The half-reclaimed secessionists bad a meeting
last night. There was a beggarly account of empty
boxes. It was a complete fizzle. Mosie was in
voked to induces respectable attendance., It was
only another failure.
The people bad no heart in the movement, and
would not come, so they had a dry time generally.
They utterly foiled to carry out their programme,
but deceived the few followers into the belief that
they could organize a State government by taking
the President’s amnesty oath, and ignoring the oath
of loyalty prescribed bj Gov. Johnson; but instead
of organizing In opposition to Gov. Johnson,which
has heretofore been their stock in trude, they prac
tically deserted their position, and in some sort ac
cepted the very oath against which they had been
kicking.
The*gucrillas are becoming quite bold In Missou
ri, especially that portion in the vicinity of Charles
ton. All the protection rendered to that neighbor
hood Is by quartering one company of the 2d Ho.
State militia there, which is insufficient. They can
guard the town, bnt can hardly spare men enough
to scour the country in force. This Is much need
ed. and Missouri should send more men into her
southeastern border.
Chief among the guerillas thereabouts ie one Ed
ward Campbell, who has confessed to at least two
murders. He was arrested some months since, but
managed to make his escape from jail at Columbus,
and has since become the head man among the
thieves and bushwhackers In this vicinity. His
.gang not long since killed a man named Kelly,
nearly seventy years old, because he objected to
them rairfng off his horses and negroes. Over
twenty horses, and as many able-bodied negroes
have been taken from the neighborhood of Charles
ton within 10 days. The people fear to pntin their
crops, and many say they will have to desert their
forms unless some remedy is provided.
Captain Ewing, commandant of the post, should
have more men. He will then quickly rid the
country of the thieves and robbers complained of.
Drs. C. A. Foster, Kirkwood, Babcock, Wright,

Washtrotcw, March 4.—The President baa re
ceived a dispatch from Ocn. Bntlcr, stating that
Gen. Kilpatrick arrived yesterday within out lines,
with the loss of less than fifteen men. lie had
several skirmishes. Among our missing arc Col
onels Dablgren, Cook and Litchfield. The two for
mer ere supposed to bo prisoners.
Kilpatrick destroyed a large portion of the Vir
ginia Central Railroad, and several mMla along the
James River, and other valuable properly. He
penetrated to the outer fortifications of Richmond.
A special to tbe Herald says: A note from the
Army of the Potomac, dated 9:80 this morning,
states that messengers have come through from
Kilpatrick, whom they left some ten
miles south rof Hanover Junction, on Wed
nesday morning. The command had most
thoroughly and effectually destroyed the Vir
ginia Central Railroad from Beaver Lam to Han
over Junction, and the Richmond and Frederick*-
burgh Railroad from the Mattapon Bridge to tbe
Pamnnky river, the entire distance destroyed
being over forty miles. There bad been some stir
mlsmng during the advance, hut It was confined
mostly to the right of Kilpatrick’s command. As
Wade Hampton’s rebel cavalry are known to be
re-occupying the country to the west of the Uno of
march taken by our cavalry, It Is probable that his
is the only rebel force that has been engaged.
Iftho spoliation upon the lines of tholwo roads
la as complete as represented, Leo will be com
pelled to move his army from Its present position,
to subsist it, for, unless the rebels have facilities
far greater than any wo possess for constructing
railroads, it will take them at least four weeks to re
pair the damages.
“ Ail reports concur in representing that at no
time has Gen. Lee’s army baa a larger supply than
from six to ten days’ rations on hand.
“It is reported that General Kilpatrick found
the country through which he passed almost desti
tute of food for man or beast, and os bis troops
went in light marching order, ho has been com
pelled to push forward with all possible speed. Tbc
rain storm of Monday night and Tuesday had been
a great drawback to nis movements, hut ss It has
been dear and cool for the past two days, it is hop.
edthat ere this the command have a
point where it can at least obtain supplies.”
The New Turk Tribune's Washington special
save;
Kilpatrick reached Lonisa Court Bouse on
Monday night. He destroyed tbc railroad for sev
eral miles, and hurried towords the Pumankc; riv
er. He was to have been in Richmond Wednesday
morning. Confidence in his success is weakened
only by the arrival in Richmond of Longs treat’s
veterans.
Kilpatrick has 5,200 picked men and several
mounted batteries, and forrapidity of movement
marches in three columns.
Another special to the New York THZ«ne reports
that Kilpatrick was expected to return to-day ria
one of the fords near Stcvcnsboro. and discredits
tbe rumor of his being at White Bouse.
Still another dispatch reports the arrival of one
of Kilpatrick’s scouts, who left onr forces within
fourteen miles of Richmond, and states that a
Junction bad been formed with Gen.Butler’s force.
They bad destroyed the pike and railroad in their
rear, and encountered no serions opposition.
Deserters confirm the destruction of tbe bridge
over Pamnnkey River and the telegraph. Gen.
Lee sent a formidable force of cavalry and artillery
to see what was tbc matter. They also state that
when Gcu. Custar was ascertained to be lu tbe rear
of Charlottesville, Ewell’s whole corps was sent
there to resist onr advance.
The New York Times' Washington special says:
The Warßeparmcnthas information that Lons*
street's force la In Richmond, and also reports KU-
Patrick’s force at 6,(00, and that he has twenty-four
to thlrtr-alx hoars start of the rebel cavalry.
The world's Washington special saya:
There is probably no truth In Kilpatrick’s re
ported Junction with Gen. Batler’s force* at White
llonse, as the latter telegraphs that be has heard
nothing of the expedition.
A World telegram has a rumor that a general un
derstanding, if not an onjanization, prevails among
the population of Richmond and Its environs,
for the present aid and comfort of Union refogees
and prisoners, and for the purpose of helping on
any attempt to capture the city.
A special to the Philadelphia Inquirer, from Nor
folk, Va., 3d, says: Lost evening fighting com
menced between our forces and those of the enemy
at Beep Cut, ten miles from this city. Particulars

TOE REBEL CONGRESS.
Valedictory of Speaker Bocock—Tlie
Rebel Coustcw Currency
BUI Panic, Ac.
Mr. Bocock, Speaker of the late rebel Congress,
in response to a resolution of thanks, presented
him, addressed a valedlctory r from which we give
a few extracts:
• And now as wo stand and look back over the
history of the last two years, the mists already be
gin to dissolve, the clouds to lift themselves up,
and oor pathway to grow dear and distinct In the
clear light of reason and reff cctlon. We see now
more dearly than ever before the dread responsl
hility which has rested upon ns; and bow deeply 1
our action has involved the safety of our country
and the best interests of mankind. We have been
called to legislate for an infant nation, stragglings
with some of the embsmunneota wltlxm thee tua-.
allv attend a new political organization,. and as
sailed from without by war—and such a war. So
vast in Us dimensions; so unexampled in its fero
city ; eo altogether unchristian and nnholy in
its spirit, and so exacting in its demands.
To meet the requirements of each a war has indeed
been no easy task—to give the men and the money.
And vet we have not shrank from the performance
of this duty. When, in the spring of 3862, the fail
ure of the State Legislature* to furnish us with a
sufficient number of troops, raised by State author
ity, rendered it-essential that prompt and strong
measures should be taken by us, we boldly resorted
to the measure of conscription, then new in this
country, and thus we saved alike our army and our
cause. And since that time, as the exigencies of
the service have required it. we have enlarged the
scope of that law and lessened the number exempt
ed from its operation', till at last, by a recent enact
ment. It is believed that wc have madoltas effi
cient as present circumstances will allow. There
is a party who desire peace. Let them get control
over ua tomorrow, and that party will have acquir
ed a lease of power that will last for a generation.
In such an event, there might be a few who would,
wish to ecc ns restored to our former status and the
old Union re-establUhed, bnt their voices would he
lost In the wild whirlwind and tempest of flmatlca
triumph and fury. Men want peace—do we not all
want peace! Peace I how gladly would we hail its
advent I How anxiously do we watch for its com
ing I But there can be no such peace. No. The
people are resolved. They are self devoted. They
will make all necdfhl sacrifice?. The fires of inde
pendence are burning brightly in their bosoms.
Civil convulsion* of this kind usually give birth to !
Erodiglee of military and civil greatness. We
ave not now a hero here and a hero there. Every
village and every hamlet, and almost every home*
stead, now has its hero. Qualities of heroism
have found their way into the bosoms of the softer
sex, and men dare not. if they would, he otherwise
than brave and true. Victory sits far off, on her
mountain throne. Between ns and her there may
be defiles to be passed, ravines to be crossed,
crumbling ledges to be surmounted that may break
beneath our feet and throw ns back. Bat if, not
withstanding all, wc will move on with steady step
and determined purpose all. those difficulties may
be overcome, and soon, aye. sooner than we think,
we shall seize her on her high seat, bring her home
to ourselves, and enthrone her over oor fortunes
for long years to come.

I have no donbt that the machine which blew np
tbc Ilousatoolc was intended for ns. We were on
the blockade of Maffit’s Channel, which is the one
nearest in shoic, and runs along the shore of Snlli
van's Island. Wo were, therefore, tbe nearest ves
sel toward the rebels, and stood too first chance of
thetr attention. Bat Captain Dancan was In the
habit of changing the position of the ship every
night alter dark, so that In case tbe rebels got onr
bearings by daylight they conldnot find ns at night.
To this I attribute the fact of tbe rebel torpedo not
ttriking us Instead of the Honsatonic, which was
next above ns. The affair was accomplished in tbc
most artistic manner, so neatly that we did not
know it was done at the time, although It was
bright moonlight. The first we knew of the dlsas
'erwas the next morning, when we discovered her
lying with nothing bnt roasts and smoke-stacks
above water. We have received orders to go on the
blockade off Georgetown, South Carolina.

[From the Colorado Miners’ Register.]
Vrr.orjrLi Cnr, I. T., Jan. 14,1863.
To-day has been of extreme interest to all honest
men. Five men were hung at the same time- and
on the same beam, which ronns a part of a frame to
ahonse. Early in the morning, miners (the bone
and sinew of the country) could be seen coming
from every direction, each with a double-barrelled
gun. In addition to a good supply of side arms. It
was no less grand than interesting, as, by standing
in n prominent position, pickets conla be seen on
the sides of the mountains which surround the
Elace. and which are covered with snow, forming a
eantlftil contrast. Companies, numbering
from twelve 'to twenty, arc now patrol
ling the streets, and the expression of each
man's countenance showed a determination
to meet any emergency. It was thought there
might be some opposition to the movement, but
that idea soon vanished as the day wore on and
the number increased who were known to be of
the right stamp. Believing your readers arc an -
ions to know the names of the unfortunates, I
might as well mention them here. 1 will com
mence with George Lane, altna Club-foot George,
who has acted as a deputy sheriff. I will not at
tempt to go Into details in regard to the crimes of
each, but will simply say they were connected with
rohbxndand murdering on toe highway, called in
this country w road agents." The next in order was
Haze Lyons, who was tried in July last, and while
the rope was around his neck his sentence was re
voked to banishment from the country; hnt In the
. conrseof fiixwceksbeagalnappcared in our streets.
The third was Boone Helm, who while on trial
admitted himself a murderer; he went into Salt
Lake City in 'SO eating the leg of one of his com
rades, and was the only one left of three men. The
was John H. Gallagher, late of Denver City;
wbta luuiia he was between two straw beds, with a
double-barreled gun on each side of him, In addi
tion to two revolvers, yet when the committee went
for him be “weakened,” making no resistance.
The last of the number was Frank Parish, who pre
tended to keep a ranch to cover Ids sins: but the
evidence of ms guilt wns conclusive, and he, like
the balance, was executed at 4 n. m. Though the
crowd numbered a thousand souls or more, every
thin" was conducted in a most qnlet and orderly
manner, much to the credit of an excited populace.
After the criminals had hung a proper length of
time, they were cut down by Sheriff Caben. Two
oftbem were taken charge of by friend*, the others
by the committee, and properly interred.
To-day a party of twenty-five men started
to find and bring to justice some “road agents”
who are known to be within some 133 or 180 miles
of here. While we have been busy, the good peo
ple cl Bannock City, seventy-five miles from here,
have not been idle. Last Sunday night, Henry
Plummer (high sheriff and the acknowledged lead
er of the whole outfit), Buck Stimuson (a comrade
of Haze Lyons, and sentenced fit the same time to
be hung, and toe sentence revoked to banishment),
and Edward Bar were hung In the town at 8:30,
with no opposition. But not so with a Spaniard,
who has been a terror to the entire community.
He resisted to the last, and while the
citizens were trying to effect his arrest he
shot a "enUcman by the name of Coup
ler and killed bim, and wounding a man named
Smith Ball slightly, and at the same time deliber
ately shot a man by the name of Featheraton, but
fortunatelr for Mr. F. he escaped unhurt. Mr.
Coupley was the President of a Ditch Company,
and a man highly respected both in Bannock and
Colorado Territory. The house was finally shelled,
and a piece striking him in the face felled him to
the door. In n second be was shot by ft dozen men,
and yet he was not dead. A clothes line being near
by, he was immediately taken to the post which
fctjpportedhhe line, ana hang. No sooner Jhs this
done jbnt' over one hundred shots were fireakl him.
The cabin was razed to the ground, drawn off a
short distance and set on fire. The enraged crowd
moved to burn the body, but at the time was pre
vailed noon to desist, As soon as the crowd dis
persed, however, his body was taken down and pat
on the fire and burned washes.
In rclerring to recent occurrences, X will mention
the commencement of the good work, George Ive*
was hung first, for being connected with the mur
der of nfck Teibo, commonly called Dutch Hick,
well known in Colorado. Ives was considered one
rftbemort intelligent of all the gang. The trial
was carried on with coolness and determination
and the prisoner was guarded by asbrave a act of
men as ever grated any country, Howashnngto
the frame of a house by the aids of the one in which
te was imprisoned. It was supposed he had many
friends, ar d that an attempt would be made to res
cue him: but when he was onthegallowahocalled
for bia friends, and only one. man came forward
and bid him good bye. The next that were ext
ent; d wore George r. Brown and Eraatns Razor
(alias Red), both hong to a limb some five mtlca
from this place. Confessions were made at the
time which led to the detection of many others. It
is said twenty-seven have fallen victims to their
crimes. Itisanawftilrecord, bntwhen wearere
minded of the many, very many, innocent men who
have been murdered and robbed in cold blood, wo
feci satisfied that they received only their Just des
erts. I would like to detail some of the many In
cldnrta connected with different robberies and
murders, but wont of time compels me to be brief.
I wi 1 say, however, that the parties who robbed
Forbes train (Mr. Wm. Sloan being with him) of
$2,000, but which was afterwards recovered, arc
among the number hung.
