Friday Morning. May 8, 1863. Now is the Time. 'IV next thirty or forty day-; presage stir ring times, and now.sji:p'T- will be anight with avidity. In order to l'urni-h :i j ajx r worthy of patronngc we shall --pare no pains., itnil ask a liberal patronage. We are not actuated by cupidity ; if wo were wo could have easily t", .tiinl a wider lul.l than .following (ur h-iti-niatt: business in our native town. Hut very tow arc aware, nf tho heavy expense of pub lishing a daily paper at any time and especi ally now, tlim fore we ask a more liberal pat r.jiias;s because wo believe our paper merits it. ,-. ... . For th". Daily P.ulletiu. Mil. Editor:- Will you please allow me to inquire, through your paper, wliat arrange ment, if any, Win. Gorman made for the re deinption of his shinplasters, of which many of ur citizens hold different amounts? Did he leuvq any one in our town to redeem them? Yours respectfully, Citizen. We believe Mr. Gorman left no one hereto redeem his tickets, und wo have heard of one person destroying what ho had, believing they would never be of any value. We hope Mr. Gorman may see this, and be reminded of his strange neglect ii leaving our town, just after giving out all the tickets he could, and making no arrangement for their redemption. In justice to our citizuns who took Mr. Gor man's " promises to pay," and took them in good faith, albeit Mr. G. was only an itine rant in our midst in justice- to those citizens this is published, and in justice to Mr, G. a fair lapse of time will be allowed for an ex planation.

LlAlULlTIKS Ok' El'XKESS C'OMPAXIES. "We learn that uu important derision on this subject was made by our High Court of Errors and Appeal?, on last Monday, in the ruse of tho Southern Express Company agtdnst Moon, from the Circuit Court of this county. The Court, we understand, held that the Express Company were under an obligation, arising from their duty to tho public as com mon carriers, to receive ali goods ottered to them for transportation, arid to transport the lame, upon there being tendered to them a rfa.iontiblt compensation that from the nature of their duty to the public, they were bound for all losses or damage of the goods, unbss caused by the act of Gud or tho public enemy and that this general liability anddutyeould not bo altered by any peeial agreement by receipt or otherwise, unless it was clearly shown that such agreement was entered into by the owner of tho goods with a full knowl edge of iU filed and under circumstances showing that he was aware of his common law right against' the Company and intended to waive it, and that such agreement was made upon a sufficient legal consideration. Cantou Minn.) ContMvmcculth. Tar Drops. The most laughable instance of the pitiable stato of despotism under which .Baltimore labors, is that related bv tho Balti more Gazette, in a local naraaraidi : ' Mr. Ankers was yesterday arrested by order ol Uoioncl a isti, l'rovost Marshal, for cireu luting a poetical advertisement of his tar drops entitled Uncle Consumptive, What will Cure II im ?" in which was recited, to the tunc of Yankee Doodle, Home of the difficulties of the Government; the last verse intimatinjr that the Government was in a deplorablo con dition, and that tho only nope lor it was m the use of the tar drops. Ho was released upon assuring Colonel Fish that ho would not here after circulate or. publish tho objectionable uoggrcL Correspondence of tho Dail Bulletin.) IIomk, Oa., May 4, ISC;). Ed. Bcli.ktin: I received a furlough a few days ago and started for my homo in Jack sonville, Ala. On arriving at this place I found the wildest excitement prevailing. The women were walking tho streets, pale and tremblimg, asking every one pacing if the Yankees wereeoming. Upon inquiry I found that it had been reported early in the morning tint a cavalry force were making toward- this place, from thu direction of Gadsden, Ala., which place they had almost demolished, burn ing a number of private houses and all the Government stores in the town. Gen. Forrest sent in a dispatch to hold the plaeo as long as possible, that ho was pursuing them in their rear. Cd. Caldwell, commandant of the po;.t, had already commenced preparations for the defence of the city. Two pieces of, artillery were found, and by 0 o'clock were ready for action unfortunately, though, no ammunition could be found suitable for the guns, all the cannon balls being so small that they would roll out of the piece whenever the breech of tho cannon was elevated. However, the pieces were manned and placed in the command of ome artillery officers who happened to bo present, and a position sol ce tod. A number of cotton bales were placed in front of tho guns as a protection to the cannoneers, leaving enough .open space to allow tho pieces to have full play. In the meanwhile a vigilant search was being made all over the .city for all the" guns. Every citizen in the place who had any kind of a firearm came out with it himself and fell into line with tho company of soldiers on post duty in tho place, making a force of about two hundred and fifty fighting men. They were marched on the other side of tho river, and took up their position, waiting patiently for the approach of the enemy. About 10 o'clock in tho morning news was received that they were within a mile of the place, resting their horses preparatory to giving us a fight. About 2 o'clock in tho afternoon a courier arrived with tho news that Gen. Forret had captured the entire force, consisting of sixteen hundred men nnd two pieces of artillery, and that they would be in tho city that evening. It would be impossible to describe the joy with which this news was received. Ladies came in great crowds to the plaeo where Gen. For rest was to pass, eager to see their deliverer, as they called him. "When he did arrive ho was overwhelmed with showers of bonnets. The ladies crowded around him. anxious to pay him all honor, nnd show him how grateful they were f'r his timely assistance. One hundred and forty officers, all belonging to the Federal command, were brought into town, paroled nnd quartered in tho two best hotels in the place. Tho citizens took care of all our boys who came in w ith them. The remainder of the force were encamped on the other side of the river, and did not come in until this morn All day the Federal officers have been prom enading tho streets, smoking cigars and me.k ing themselves as much at home as if they were in the city of Boston, even going so far as to express their feelings and opinions about the people of Homo and tho South generally on account of which Gen. Forrest caused them to be placed under guard this evening. I was very sorry to learn that Willio Wat terson was wounded very severely in tho thigh a day or two ago, while making a charge upon these same forces. None of tho other boy from Winchester were wounded that I have heard from. Gen. Forrest's men are very jubilant over their success, and tho more soon account of its being exclusively a Tennessee affair, no troops from any other Stato being engaged in it. Summing up all the advantages we have gained by the capture of this force wo have saved the Government factories and foundrit in this city; have captured about sixteen bun dred stand of arms; the horses of all tho pris oners and their equipments, and two pieces of artillery. Gen. Forrest will remain in camp here a few days to recruit his horses and men, who are nearly worn out from riding and fighting almost every day for eight days. J. II. F. Obituary. Died, on tho 1st day of May, 180.3, Mrs. Mautha E. Stewaut, wife of Mr- L. II. Stewart, of Winchester, Tenn., aged .'10 years and !l days, tier maiden namo was Pope. She was born in Franklin county, Ala., April 22d, 1833. At the early age of 12 she professed re ligion nnd attached herself to tho Baptist Church. On the 7th of November, 184V, she was married to Mr. Stewart, at Russullville, Alabama, and in tho year 1852, .with her hus band, joined the Methodist Church. For some years past she has been troubled with a disease pulmonary in its naturo the long continued and insidious attacks of which have at length terminated her earthly existence. Through the. past winter sho bore her acute sufferings pa iently and w ith trutful submission to tho evident will of her Heavenly Father, und then when the scacn of the flowers and 'Mho lime of tho singing of birds" had come.he gently pushed away to the land where sh'pty ever more thofadelcs spring time Yf love, ('ailed upon to leave behind her a devoted husband, a loving mother and sister, and two children, upon whom every treasureof her maternal af l'eeti m was lavished, the doom of departure was bard and grievous to be borne the tri.il, however, found her ready to make every prep aration. She sorrowed, but did not murmur. She bent beneath tho burden, but sought not, in a rebellious spirit, to cast it down. In htr lat illness sho anticipated often the glorious hango when corruption slmuldht) clothed with incorrup'.ion, and seeking also the future intbr- st of those she loved. She frequently, with tonderest entreaties, besought them so to live that they too might triumph in tho hour of departure, and thus bo enabled to rejoin her in heaven. Her last moments were occupied in a touching farewell to her famil v, and her feeblest rcatli expressed thanksgiving to Hhn who as robbed the gravo of its victory. Lives liko hers are not known of tho world, but the watch ing angel! keep tho record, and smile to soeil. "May God, in His infinite mercy, console the bereaved husband, tho weeping mother and sister, and bo, as. He has promised, a comforter iudecd to tlio motherless orphans. II. Obituary. Captain n. II. Garden, company D, 17th Tennessee Volunteers, was bom .November ISM, and died in Harrodsbitrg, Ky., on tho 2fth dav of October, 18i2, of a wound received at the battle of Fcrryvillo, while battling for his country's rights. It is but duo to the memorv of the deceased to say that ho was trave and tender hearted, nnd universally be loved by his men, who ever lovd to ohry him. He entered tho service on the 20th of May, 1801, as a private," not for tho promise of pay, but purely for the love of country ; was soon elected 3d Lieutenant, and, under the reorgan ization was elected Captain over Capt. Finch's old con1 nan v. This brave, patriotic, and be- ove'd voting officer fell cheering his men on to victory, leaving a disconsolate and heart broken widow and three lovely children, not to mention a long list of friends, to mourn his untimely death. Long will be the time bo. foro the vacuum occasioned by Lis death can he filb-d; but he has gone, as we tiu. t, to join a more nrihiatit army in tlio skies, whore no more wounds will be inflicted, and nheredeath never comes. .May his praiseworthy example incite others to like deeds of bravery and daring: for the relief ;ud redemption of our hlc'dinu country. ..M. if.
