The cruelhearted o5cials and petty tyrants of the now defunct rebel militia, endeavor to excuse their das tardly outrages and acts of mob violence by sayin,- that they were forced to this perpratra tion by superior authority. "When wrong is about to bs searched eut, evildoers, writhing under the sting of guilty conscience, betray themselves. AiliLtTART Candidate. Colonel Slack, late commander of this port, seems certain to be put in nomination for Congress by the 11th Congressional District of Indiana. The Forty seventh Indiana would lose a fine Colonel, but the nation will gain an upright legislator. It is doutbful that any competitor can be found to run against so popular a candidate. , Headquarters. Gen. Sherman's bead quarters are chosen in the camp with his men. Without ostentation, but with becoming dig nity, the Major General of this Department enters upon the earnest duties of his present position. Those who know him best, feel con fident that his administration will be honorable to himself and give strength to the government. The Difference. With the restoration of the Union flag came order, peace and plen ty ; happiness throws around its sweet influ ences ; life and vigor are instilled into trade, and prosperity blesses the commercial inter course of men. Look at our city now, and contrast its present condition with what it was under the Jeff Davis mob-rule. Then, there was an embargo on trade, business was at a stand still, and all tbat characterized the times was the thieving speculations of Confederate Sbylocks. "Who would not gladly make the exchange ? TJmsoldierly Conduct. Some six soldiers, or at least six men wearing and disgracing the uniform of the Federal infantry, yesterday in sulted a lady on her way home, by repeated calls. It is certain tbat these men must have obtained the liquor they drank in the city, and .we fear that in too many cases the orders against liquor-vending are not sufficiently en forced. " The gentlemanly courtesy wliich does distinguish the Federal soldiery is generally so conspicuous, and its members are so justly proud of it, that such occurrences are of ex treme rareness, and cause our brave boys as much annoyance as they do the party that may be subject to an occasional act of this unjusti fiable kind. Sherman's Drrisiosr. This fine division cf the Army of the Mississippi arrived in this city yesterday morning, at 7 o'clock, the advance brigadeJ(Gen. Smith's) marching into town be fore our citizens had fairly opened their eyes from their slumber. This division has since the evacuation of Corinth occupied various forts on the M. & C. E. E., having been en camped at LaGrange, Moscow, LaFayette and other places on the Road, and having mads two very successful marches to Holly Springs, Miss. After this long and tedious campaign, we hope they may be well received and hos pitably treated by our citizens. Gen. Smith, whose brigade was in the ad vance, will be remembered by many of our readers as former colonel of the famous 8th Missouri, which regiment, under his leader ship, greatly distinguished itself at Fort Don elson, Fort Henry and the battle of Shiloh. Bis brigade is one of the best in the service an inevitable consequence of the superior military qualities of its commander. It com prises the Cth and 8ih Missouri, the 54th, 55th and 57th Ohio regiments of infantry, and Taylor's, Waterhouse's and Silvasparre's batteries. The first of those regiments, the (Jth Mis souri, CoL James U. Blood, which was the first to enter the city, attracted much attention by their superior marching, and the fine military bearing of the men and officers. This regi ment has done invaluable service to the coun try, being the oldest in the volunteer service, and having been constantly on duty since early in June last year. It is one of the strongest regiments in the service, both in the number and size of its men, and with CoL Blood as their commander, will, no doubt, carve for themselves a conspicuous place in the history of tha war. "We have no doubt that the rest afforded by a tew months' encampment near our city will be most grateful to the officers and soldiers of this Division, after their laborious dutiei in the field, and we trust tbat the war may close be fore they shall again be induced to exchange the comparatively agreeable duties of an en campment for the more arduous labors of the field. Complimentary. A Major informed us yesterday that Mr. J. K. Davisson was busily engaged in Memphis organizing divisions of the So"s of Temperance. It is to be hoped that he will meet with success. - -A CRITICISM. , 'j We print on another page a criticism from the ablest and yet the most virulent secession journal in Bichmond The Examiner. It is a very able, and, here and there, truthful view of the strategy and results of the lata battles around Bichmond ; and if the prejudice of the paper are duly detracted from the deduction made by it, it will afford a fairer guide to the truth than any criticism on the subject we nave met with anywhere. The editor evident ly knew the whole truth, and possesses suffi cient kncwledge and analytic ability to give a more honest criticism than the one he pre sents; but Jeff has something to say ebout such matters, and we are really astonished that any one publishing under bis eye should dare to say even as much as the Examiner does. THE PRINTERS PROTEST. Editors Memphit Appeal : In your issue of the 20th, a correspondence appears between J. B. Synott, ostensibly, in behalf of the Memphis Typographical Union, and Commanding General Hovey, with regard to an order lately issued by the military de partment of this city. As a wrong impression has been conveyed by this correspohdence, we ask you to allow us the privelege of righting ourselves before the public. The petition of Mr. Synott to Gen. Hovey was entirely without authority from the Mem phis Typographical Union. As an individual, Mr. Synott had an undoubted right to seek military clemency ; but as the pretended rep resentative of the printers of this city, lie has assumed an authority wholly unwarranted, and alike unflattering to himself and the Union which he aspires to represent. Had we, as members of the Union, been consulted in this matter, as we should have been, w,e would certainly have had too much self-respect and independence to have sought by such an evidence of sycophantic and humiliating cring ing to avoid any responsibility which an earnest conviction of duty might entail, or to be treated by the fortunes of war as anythsng less than men : TOUCHING GUERRILLAS!!

There is between Court Square and Madison Streets, nearer to the former on Main, an isolated brick remnant of a former fire, on the upper portion of which the bricks are fast loosening, and it would not at all astonish us to hear that some pedestrians had lost their lives by its toppling. Let it be soon seen to. Dress Parade. There was a grand turn out of citizens to witness the dress parade in Fort Pickering Sunday afternoon. The band discoursed some delightful music, the chaplain offered an eloquent prayer in behalf of the Union, which made a noticeable impression on all hearers; and, in conclusion, the band played the Mocking Bird Quickstep,' when the citizens dispersed with the hope of return ing again soon to enjoy a like parade, and hearken to a similar sermon.- How to Live. The science of living may be briefly staled thus: Never fret over what cannot be helped ; seek for good in all things; keep your feet dry, your stomach in order and to insure the latter always eat, at Henghold's Restaurant, on the south side of Court Square, where the best meats and vegetables may al ways be found cooked on the most scientific principles.

Mr. Penn, a lieutenant in the rebel army, was arrested yesterday and lodged in the Irving Block. Eight guerrillas were arrested in the afternoon, and sent to the same place cf confinement. Late in the evening the pickets brought in another party of seven who claimed to be looking for negroes, but they were susp ected of being a part of the guerrilla band. Bedlam. Irving Block presented a minia ture view of the infernal regions about nine o'clock last night. In several roams parties under arrest were celebrating the orgies of Bacchus with mirth and song. In their midst the Provost Marshal had thrust a liquor seller who had a fine opportunity of witnessing the Satanic influence of bis business. Gemarl Order Bo. I. Headquarters Armt ot Virginia, 1 Washington, July 18. j" The people of the Valley of the Shenan doah, and throughout the region of operations ox this army, living along the lines of railroad and telegraph and along routes of travel in the rear of the United States forces, are noti fied that they will be held responsible for any injury done the track, line or road, or for any attacks upon trains or straggling soldiers, by bands of guerrillas in their neighborhood. Ko privileges or immunities of war can apply to lawless bands f individuals not forming part of the organized forces of the enemy, nor wearing the garb of soldiers, who, seeking and obtaining salety on the pretext of being peace ful citizens, steal out in the rear of the army, attack and murder straggling soldiers, molest teams of supplies, destroy railroads, telegraph lines and bridges, and commit outrages dis graceful to humanity. Evil disposed persons in the rear of our armies who do not them selves engage directly in these lawless act, encourage, by refusing to interfere to give any information by which such acts can be pre vented, or the perpetrators punished. Safety of the life and property of all persons Irving in the rear of our advancing army depend upon the maintenance of peace and quiet among themselves, and upon the unmolested move ments through their midst of all pertaining to the military service. Tbey are to understand distinctly that tb security of travel is their only warrant of per sonal safety. It is therefore ordered that whenever a railroad, a wagon road or telegraph is injured by parties of guerrillas, the citizens living within live tuiies of the spot shall be turned out en masse to repair the damages, and shall, besides, pay the United States, in money or in property, to be collected by mili tary force, the full amount of the pay and sub sistence of the whole force necessary to coerce the performance of the work during the time occupied in completing it. If a soldier, or legitimate follower of the army, be fired upon from any house, the house shall be razed to the ground and the inhabitants sent prisoners to the headquarters of this army. If such an outrage occur at any place distant from settle ments, the people within five miles around shall be held accountable and made to pay an indemnity suthcient lor the case, and any per son detected in such outrages, either during the act or at any time afterward, shall be shot, without waiting civil process. No such acts can influence the result of this war, and they can only lead to heavy atnictioa to the popu lation to no purpose, it is therefore enjoined upon all persons, both for the security of their property and the gaiety of their own persons, that they act vigorously and cordially together to prevent the perpetration of such outrages. Whilst it is the wish of the General command ing this army that all peaceably disposed per sons who remain at their homes and pursue their accustomed avocations shall be subjected to no improper burden of war, yet their own safety must, of necessity, depend upon the strict preservation ot peace and order among themselves, and they are to understand that nothing will deter him from enforcing promptly, ani to the full extent every provi sion of this order.

Compact K. Anniversary ok Bull Run. Yesterday twelve months ago, Generals Beauregard, Johnson and Lee, with a treasonable press, were exulting over a grand victory in the name of the rebellion. It was a sad hour, and Con federates were "jubilant and unbearable'' in those sad days. 3ut a year has rolled by, and the storming ot Henry and the fall of Donel- son, and the occupation of Corinth by the Na tional forces, to say nothing of seaboard victo ries, gives assurance that rebellion will be crushed out, and that the Federal Union will be preserved. . .

The 1T7 persons who took the oath yesterday, were most of them men of respectable standing, wealth and in fluence in the city. The sixty-four who ap plied for passes over the lines, were, a majority of them,, boys or young men, few of them ef any standing "or respectability.

One man bought a baker's wagon, to load with provisions to help him on ,the way to Dixie, but the pass was not big enough to contain the wagon. Man Shot. Last night a soldier of the 7lh or 8th Missouri regiment was shot, at Irving Block, for attempting to break guard. The ball entered his shoulder and came out through his breast. He died almost instantly.

Congress has decided on giving Illinois the additional Representative to which she claims to be entitled, and has provided by joint resolution that he shall be elected by the electors of the State at large. This is in order to avoid are-dhtricting of the Stale. All officers absent on sick leave are to be required to rejoin their commands at once, unless where clearly unable, as vast numbers are found to be away without good cause, and in many cases they are using the privilege to electioneer amongst the people in behalf of their favorite chiefs.

By the recent postal convention with Mex ico, proclaimed by the President on the 20th of June, 1862, the following rales of postage are established, of which postmasters will take notice : 1. The single letter rate (inland three cents and sea seven cents) is 10 cents per half ounce, and for each fraction over an additional rate, and prepayment is required. This applies to all letters sent to Mexico, from the United States by sea. , 2d. On all letters received from Mexico by sea the Union States domestic rate of postage is to be charged, rating: them at the first Uni ted States post office at which they are mailed to their destination, either three or ten cents per single rate. This is to be collected on de livery. 3d. On all letters sent to or received irom Mexico, when not conveyed by sea, the United States domestic postage only, of three or ten cents tne single rate is to be cnargea. inis must be prepaid at tne mailing omce on letters sent, and collected at the office of delivery on Utters received. 4. The sea rate on printed matter sent to Mexico is one cent for each newspaper, and one cent per ounce (or fraction of an ounce) on all megazines, periodical publications, and other printed matter : and this is to be added, when sent by sea, to our usual inland rate ot postage ; and this combined rate must be pre paid at the mailing office in the United States. When sent by land the United States inland rate of postage only is to be charged and pre paid at the mailing omce. 5. On all such printed matter received from Mexico only our usual inland postage is to be collected, and this must be paid in all cases on delivery at tne omce of address. 6.
