THRILLING ADVENTURES Of Lieut. George V. Douglass, OF TIIK KIOIITIt FAST TKNXESSKE INFANTRY THE RENOWNED UNION SCOUT AND PILOT. COmilGIIT SECtMIED. CHAPTER XVI. MORGAN'S RETREAT KIIOW Cl'MDERI.AND GAP. On the 17th of September, 1HC2, Gen. Mor gan, having become convinc-d that further effort to hold Cumberland Gap would be fruitless, awin fact, result in the discomfi ture or surrender oT his brave little army, he resolved to commence the dangerous alterna tive of evacuation" in tie face of a largely su perior force of the enemy. Our source of supplies had already been cut off by harass ing bodies of Morgan's cavalry, and to have lingered, would have been ln!Vit.iblo ruin. Accordingly, when twilight set in, every preparation was made and the army wagons nnd ambulances commenced rolling out ; then followed the army in regular and excellent or der. Everything that could not be removed conveniently, was destroyed by fire and oth erwise to prevent their falling into the hands of the enemy. Among the many things de stroyed, were six fine pieces of nrtillery, which it was impossible to transport over the rough mountain roads. We were nearly all night getting off the mountain. I hnd had the misfortune to lose my hone, and was afoot, and was compelled to remain so for the first four days, when the Quartermaster of my regiment succeeded in mounting me on nn t&ccllctit horse.' After which, I rejoined tny commnnd, nnd took nn active part in clearing the advance, nnd skirmishing with the rebels, wlu were con tinually hovering in the front and f pontile flanks of our nrmy, blockading our passage at "very point where it was possible to do so thus delaying our progress in a most dis heartening manner. Presently, these delay wero occasioned at plants where it was almost impossible to procure forage for our stock or subsis ence itorcs and days would pan before anything could be had to sustain life. Largo numbers of our horses and mulct died from actual starvation. H it, notwithstanding tho severo trial, nnd hardships suffered by our soldiers, conipnrativclylilllc murmuring wuicvrr heard to fall from their lips. It appeared, that ev ery one was determined to do his whole du ty, nnd if to perish in tli ctr perilous under taking was to be their fate, they resolved to meet It ti true nnd devoted soldiers always meet the destiny which awaits them. - I have seen the sick soldier lying by the road-side on the told damp ground, with tho spirit of life ebbing to Its changeless goal, but with a pleasant smile resting upon his eountennnce so sad nnd yet so sweet, that one could not help believing that he was con tented with bis lot nay, happy In the thought that his humble life was spent In the nobis cause of his country. I linre seen the same pulseless clay, with tho same radiant smile Still resting upon It, laid In a narrow, hastily made grave, tn the mmbre ihmle of the moun tain trees there to rest peaeelully, calmly tilt the day of the resurrection, whero the falling forest leaves would loon hide forever, the spot when ruts the body of t Union Midler, II Tlx? ralwit Rot ilim kr they rarvtd not s line, But IV ft dim alnnn la hit thtj." Our ikirnilibci with tbi rebel cavslry were l ' , ? jjjtumi, ivy, ioU'. N 1 1 il Kir R rQfi I of d,li'y occurrence; but no regular engage- I ment took place until wo readied the town of Froetor'Kcntuck.r-AttI,isPo.iBt. the ReSi. nient 01 envniry to wiiieli 1 belonged was or dered to charge the rebels t'urotigh the place, while another Regiment was ordered to pro ceed by a circuitous route to fall in on the opposite side of the town, and cut off their retreat, and to learn if possible the strength of the enemy which were engaged in burn ing bouses and mills, and committing other depredations upon inoffensive Union citizens, who bad appealed to the commanding Gener. nl for protection. The night was very dark, and when we reached a point within two miles of the town, the commander of our Regiment ordered twen'y of us to the right to guard a narrow strce leading from the town to the woods in n South-easterly direction. Having reached the point designated, and placing out guards in advance, we nwaited the result. The la- borious exercises of the past week, the hard ships and the sleepless nights we hud nil spent, weighed heavily upon us all, nnd it was with the greatest difficulty that the offi cers could keep the men awake. I was one of the number that had lost to much sleep as to find it almost impassible to'eepinv eyes open and finally did fall asleep in de. spite of my ellorts to the contrary. I had sank down iii the putli with the bridle of my faithful horse in try hand. How long I had tlept, 1 am unable to say. The first thir.g presented to my confused mind on awaking, was a reverse to our uruis. It was broad day light, and it seemed that the street was crowded with fleeing soldiers, stumbling over my body, puflingaud blowing in the most excited manner. It took but a tuuintut to discover the ragged gray uniforms of the refugees, und to recognize them as rebels. 1 presumed tiny thought mc wound- vd or dead ; and did not stup to molest -lie. I considered nou-combativeuess nl that mo ment thu better part of valor, and feigued dead man. My strategy was attended with complete success ; mid it was not long till I saw the last straggling gray-back tottering along iua " broken-down " condition, pur sued by a number of tho invincible bluc coats. As soon as my "own color" made their appearance my resurrection took place, nnd I joined in the pursuit with a zest, and hnd the pleasure of taking the above named superanuated rebel by the coat colU-, and bringing him to a "stand still," nri.ile he ut tered most pitious bescachings " Please dun't kill me I Jist spare my life, and I'll do anything on earth for you I " I ordered hi m to hand up his side arms, which he did, and then 1 took him to the rear, feeling that it would in some degree pnliute the aw ful mis demeanor I had committed in going to sleep while on duty. 1 Uievr that, unless some good excuse was rendered, I would most as suredly be made to suffer for my failure to obey orders. But tliere was one consolation, and that was, our forces were the victors, and 1 knew all would finally come right. Had it been otherwise, I should have expected to fare roughly. I soon joined my commnnd, nnd found one of my comrades leading my horse, which had gotten nway from me in the excitement of the fray. When I reportud at liead-quartors with my prisoner, 1 was congratulated by my of ficers upon my success, and, to my surprise, never a word was there mentioned, about my going to sleep ou post. So all passed off agreeable. The army rested for a few hours, nnd then, about five o'clock, P. M., again resumed the march. The night was very inclement, the foads became almost impassable the horses sinking to there flunks in mud at almost ev ery step. Several pieces of artillery were cut uown and destroyed from the fac.l of their being irrecoverably "stuck in the Tfiud," and the horses attached to them, not having been supplied with food, became to weak as to be unable to draw them further. It whs a gloomy, very gloomy tiino for the whole ormy but more cspf lally for the infantry jjid artillery men, whose sufferings were mfa intense contending with mud and rain and the "war ing elements." Yet, they struggled on, breast ing the tempest with a zeal and noble resig nation almost unparalleled In the history of human endurance. No word of complaint escaped their lip., but on tho other hand, the jest and merry laugh of the hardy, brave boys, told that they were contented, even amid such trying scenes. Oil the next day we had a heavy skirmish nt Cany deck, in which we again put the rebels to an inglorious flight not, however, until wo had first been driven back several miles, ami by which movement lost several men captured, which wire, In turn recaptur ed by our impetuous and daring charge the rebels could never stand a heavy sabre charge and made haste to get out of reach. Af ter the cavalry engagement the army con tinued the retreat, Gil tho satu evening wo reached the town of West Liberty, which placo we took quiet and peaceable possession of without opposi tion. It was a very pretty place and we pitched our tents for the night. The next day being tho Sabbath, Capt.

FltA.NKLl.X, TENN., Oct., 28th, mi Capt. Ciusham. Dear Friend : When wo last met in the little town of Gallatin, lventy-fivo lulled AortIi-eu.it of thoi "City of hock,' iho Li J o of battle was running iiifiii iur ireeuom. Uoirnmwiued by that most noble patriot to whom each and every loyal eye turned with pride and joy. But alas, for tho American people! Ilia life has passed liko it sunbeam from the mountain, and his loss is universally mourned, as none other sinco tho days 'of Washington. Then it was, too, that the gieat champion of the Cumberland, was In iliating his remarkable work of genuis and pursuing the enemy of republican liberty into the 6trongliold -jf Dalton, behind the Ptern features of " Kocky Face llesaca." Great the revolution which has taken plaeesince those dark days of blood and carnage, the impet uosity with which the storm of infti riated treason burst upon our beloved country in 1 80 1 , does not equal it. So great and sudden is the change, that it is dillicult to realize the fact, that the stupendous Southern Kebellion is a thing of the past, emblazoned upon the pages of history, the deviling lolly or infinite meanness of a rebellious pooplo, who have confounded every principlo of human reason to prove slavery to uc tne truo corner-stone of freedom, upon which they sought to establish Southern Independence, and urcw llio sword to delond. liut it crumbled and shattered under tho mighty feet of advancing freedom. So let it perish with all its hatred and enmity ! They failed, tho Government triumphed; they nuistthereloreaban don their views of secession and slave ry forever. Tho past is beyond their control the future is heforo them. And tho Government is resolved to punish them just as long as they tier Hit in error and obstinacy, but will welcome them without-stretched arms the instant their atonement shall an swer the end of jtistico, national safe ty and its future progress. But I urn fearful some time will clatiso before their attonement shall answer the end ot justice, it it minority ot tho late rebel soldiers South, are like some of thoso about this place, manifesting iv disposition not to acknowledge the emancipation of ulavcry, nnd tho res toration of tho old " Star-spangled Banner of Liberty," over tho length and breadth of tho United States. Ilenco, to violently suppress tho most peaceable demonstrations of the col ored peoplo, instead of accepting tho existing order of things in perfect good faith, with nil its logical conse quences and becoming peaceable and loyal citizens. September, 30,A was appointed by tho colored peoplo of this place, lo en joy it fipecch from a young colored lecturer of l'hiladclphia, by tho name of T. Houston Murray. While tho drum was beutintr to summoriH them together, one of those sons of southern chivalry sloped up, took out a knifound deliberately cut a wulo holo through tho parchment, rendering tho drum useless. This rebellious net seemed only to bo a signal lor tho conimei.ceincrit of u furious mob on tho colored pooplo, for a crowd of thoso ret': mod rohels soon collet-ted and urged tho daring one who had committed 8aid net to cut more holes through tho drum -Then they posted themselves at tho corners of the squares, armed with re volvers and knives, with tho deter miualion, as they avowed, of putting a holo through tho negro speaker, and killing every negro who dared attempt to pass them. For, while tho sonsnfion heightened, men commenced collecting their re volvers, &e, preparing fur tho cmcr geney. The colored people, unintimi dated by tho rebellions manifestation, and violent threats of tho rebels, quiet ly gathered themselves together and with it banner with the following in frtriplion, " Freedom and Nationality, Univer sal Suff'riKje and 'Testimony.'' "No lari twnalh mirntarr flan," "Tbs who flBht for frtlom'i rl.hti Is frse forswr tnnnV "I.M all our mighty rims, tin Mnr southward pnur," "An.li-ifi.rjf ware toll tverjr aliv to U a iUvs no mors." mh "P " 1,10 "(l"flr0 wW tI, hpNikcr lioforo tlicm nn I popped UlU IJIIIU, Willi CVKIUIUIV II I If S II 1 1 0 1 1 C 1 their purpose, nnd collected around .

Tht speaker nroso, taking his stand on tho steps of Iho Clerk's office, do clured it was not his object to harrow up tho minds of his race by a rehersal of their past wrongs, for, said he, Jet tho past remain with the dark nnd bloody past." Ho refuted tho charge of negro inferiority by facts from tho most authentic ancient history spoke of tho days when Cccsar crossed the Jiutncon, and enslaved tho Britons, who wero so stupid, they wero unfit for slaves, and when 'iho Anglo Saxons were so low that they sold their wives and daughters to bo slaves. Ho told tho returned rebel soldiers that they must get tho rebel off tho brain, give up their prejudice, ac knowledge the black-man'us a freed man, or tho political flood which was rising over tho country would sweep them out of existence. The black-man he said," would hare to work out his destiny in the South that ho was ingrown in her soil, im mured to her toils a"d inextricably in terwoven with her history, her indus try, her blond and hciv destiny. And the soil beneath which, so many millions of his race, victims of tyran ny and brutal'debasemcnt aro lying, was us filtered to them aa their own hearts." He said tho white and black nconlo of the South would havo to become friends. lie exhorted the colored peoplo to acquire wealth and knowledge, and to bo more united. During the speech some threatened to shoot him from tho t:tnd, or pelt nis u u neari with stones. IJut the young colored orator spoko so hril- tnt, bold, eloquent and spicy, that they become so attracted, they forget their foul and rebellious purpose. It was announced that ho would speak at night to the colored people in soino house in town. Thoso rebellious braves again swore they would mob him. 'Iha' freed man's Ayent was informed, who said he could do nothing but fine tho lawless men. Tho town Mayor made no effort to protect the colored people. Tho loyal ty of a majority of theso roturned rebel soldiers is entirely unreliable. Tho colored peoplo and tho Union white citizens, are beat down upon by their strong malicious, mobbing popu lar sentiments. But, do not understand me, that these are the sentiments entertained by a minority of the old citizens of town, for that is not tho case. They opposo all such rebellious acts, and bring their inllucnco to bear against them for they well know it only pro tracts and intensities tho darkness of tho night throti-ih which they have just passed. I hero are a great many rebel citi zens coming from Fast Tennessee, and settling about hero. They give a hor rible ids to ry of their trials and tribu lations among the Unc'ilniies of Hast Tennessee. They nay they have nev er taken any purt in the war, and wero run from their homes, simply for en tertaining Southern sentiments. Lam confident that some of them were the worst rebols in all upper East Ten nesseo. II would tickle you to tho very end ofyourtoex, to hear the tale of op- pression told by Rome of the spright ly widows and old prudish maids, who have emigrated from your section to this place. I suppose they thought their future prospect slim in your sec tion of Lineolndi)innu hearing tho f.tint iniiiiililiin''s of cupids chariot, rolling through tho misty atmosphere of single wretchedness, they thought it tho best part of valor, to emigrate to a more congenial clime, whero thoy could look inlo tho dim vista of the future, with some hopes of tho arrival of a happy period, when they would ho admitted into tho silver curtained chambers of double blessedness, right into tho very Kdcn of eternal felicity und devoted happiness, with their names emblazoned upon tho golden battlements of matrimonii in juxta position with all redeemed lovers. I havo received information, which Is porfectly incomprehensible, not on ly to mc, but lo hundreds of others in this part of tho State, and if true, 1 know not what to say of tho intelli gence and patriotism of tho fro? voters of Washington County, whoso orb of liberty for tho last four yours, has set dark and bloody inthedeen caverns of political corruption nnd unparal leled rebel oppression, which has cost tho lives of hundreds of their bravo and most noble hearted sons, whose polished sabres flushed heaven's light nirnr upon Iho bloody field nf conten tion In tlefenco of their suffering and oppressed homes. With nil of this fresh in their mem ory, how enn tnor stigmatize tncir finrfamo with tho brand of n perjured aspirant In Infamy, constituting ono of tho most astonishing moral pr-rvor- sions to bo found In tho history of thin fallen world.

Tho following story appears in tho Greenport (L. 1.) Watchman : "At about nine o'clock A. M. on Sunday last, tho schooner Catherine Wilcox, of Luboc, Me , was proceed ing down tho Sound, about eight miles off shore, tho captain and a young man seventeen years of ago, I'eler Johnson, belonging to Kobin bton, Maine, formerly a soldier, who was working his passago homo, strip ped off their clothing and jumped overboard for a swim. Johnson swam, a few rods from tho vessel to pick up a small piece of wood nnd whilo re turning a huga shark, judged to havo been fourteen or fifteen foot long, dar ted towards him and seized him about tho middle, and instantly disappoured with him, dragging him down, us ho says, about thirty feci deep. IJe struggled and fought with the ravenous, monster, fearfully lacorat ing his right arm in tho effort, and finally succeeded in grasping Iho s hark hy tho head and by gouging ono of bis iyo-1, at tho same lime dealing him powerful blows about tho head, succeeded in wresting himself free. He then swam to iho schoonor pursued by the monster, but being a man of remarkable strength und pluck, ho finally succeeded in driving him olfaud got on boatd tho schoonor pu ling himself up by tho forctopsailo clewlino which hung overboard, but not until the terrible tcolh had loft their mark in hisjgroins, thigh and leg, so that he was ono mass of goru.
