From tha Staunton Spectator. Milroy in Winchester. A FAMILY IHtlVEM FROM HOME. Tho family of Mr. Lloyd Logan, of Winchester, eonsisting of Ins wife, throe daughters and two Rons, having k'cn d riven from tuoir own riortitit home, by order of the brutal General Milroy, that it might bo occupied by Din. Milroy and bin fam ly, arrived at Jus: place last week. Whilst .Mrs. Lo y.r. and her children wero engaged in .unrning worship, lie heavy footsteps J Milroy's robbers arid plunderers vovc heard 'n the hall. As Soon as tlio devotional exercise,? were concln (','."1 lb.; intruder:! entered the room, and apprised Mrs. Looan that they were coin liMii'.bvl by (ion. Milroy to turn !,ier and her family out ot bouse iiiul home, :i t; vl that, General Milroy and his family would take possesion of it. Mrs. Logan protested azainst be inn eypeiieu in thai Krrimarv rind !'iithhs3 nniTir iroin her on hcm, and maintained that it was her hus band's property, and that they had no rijdit whatever- to molest her in the enjoyment and possession of it. They replied that their orders were prcomp tory, and that she and her family nv."t be ready to leave the honso by 12 o'clock, and that they would bo sent beyond their lines. One of them stepped up and demand ed al! the keys belonging to the prem ises. Mrs. Logan refused to give them ;ip. Rue in the mean time some had taken possession of every room from tho basement to the attic, including the chambers of her daughters. O'ro of her daughters who had just left, her chamber and had witnessed what they were doing, ran down and besought tier mother to give them the -keys, they wero breaking every lock in the house. Tin keys were then given to them. They entered every room, ami ransiiflked cvety drawer and stole whatever they could lav their hands upon. They stole, all the money they found, r.nd wop Id not allow Mrs. Logun to take u sing'e garment of clothing talon ",):,' to her husband and sons. They.id "e.u; descend," however, to allow her and he: danghteni to take apait of thuir wnrdrobe. One of the Yankees dressed hims'df up in ono o -Hr. Logan's suits of clothes, and no Jonbt thinking that as he had on a Ssitlcman's clothes, he lookod more like a gentleman til an be ever did be fore, walked up with an air of pride and asked one of the daughters, "How ho thought ho looked iV her father's clothes V She wilted him with the Prompt reply : Yon look, sir, the per Unification and embodiment fa rogue, which is yonr true character." None of the family got any break fast, except ono eon, over whom the Yankeeswith b:v,oucts,"1slfJO'i guard viiilst ho was eating Tbo clivr son in the - urird house, inving been l"lfeti (lie o.iv befcrc. Mrs. Logan fht-.-i litO, I,.',. MlBt. iM not ha'0 the i I..'- r leased. kh v.v.l-i not !t;:;v? Spartan courage, to brave all da rigors, and that ho could not bo persuaded nor intimidated, they sent to (k-n. Milroy for instructions, when the mes sengers returned with the message that her son would join her on the way. She told thorn that would not do, that her son must be wilh her before sho would bo taken a step from homu. Seeing that she was determined, and t hat she could not bo duped by a shal low trick of treachery, they released her son and sent him to her. Before this time, Mrs. Milroy, worthy to he tho wife of her .husband, had arrived with the view of talcing possession of tne nno mansion. When tins family were thus thrust from their own house, Mrs. Milroy clapped her hands jn ex ultation,,and exclaimed, "(Jo ye seeesh, 1 hope you may bo made to starve." They were taken under guard of sixty cavalry to Newton, whero they wero left, it s the Yankees supposed, without the means of getting farther. When Gen. Milroy was asked by some of the prominent citizens of Winchester what charges ho made against this family that he treated them so, he replied that they had observed the day appointed jn- President Davis as a day of fast ing, humiliation and prayer ! This is such conduct as could be committed by no other than one who has become intoxicated with his exaltation from boatman on tho Ohio River, to head porter in a Cincinnati Hotel, and then fro m porter to Major G e n e ral o f t h i e v os, plunderers and murderers. Tho old servant woman, the cook, who had been faithful under all trials and temptations, went to tho Yankee who had the basket of keys belonging to her mistress and demanded the smoko house key, Raying that, as her mistress had had neither breakfast nor dinner, she was determined lo cook her some-thing to eat Kfore she left. This faithful negro cook happened to be puPsessf-d nf" totnru' which could run, when provoke r, as f 'stand foul as a fish woman's. When !.he Yankee re fused to lot her have tho key to get her mistress something lo cut, she poured out upon him a stream of de nunciatory epithets which he richly deserved, but which it would not do for us to publish. The reader may form somo idea of what she said from the following, which arc some of the' mildest epithets used in tho old wo man's vocabulary. "You moan, low, trifling, dirty, poor wh'to trash, you ain't fit for nothing but to rob and steal. You poor cowardly rohbers, that's jist fit to steal niggers and dcu rob dor masters and mistresses what, ain't got rotning to fight you wi.l. Why don't you go up do Va.lle)', wiiar Massa Jackson is. He's got guns and sworus and bayonets, jist like you i- why don't you go up dere and see him you mean, sneaking, cowardly, poor white Yankee trash, do wus kind in dt world." Tho old cook gave them ".Tosso," and as she was in the panlony cf an cthiopian skin they were com pelled to lake it. Scrk CuitK.
