Mr. Nurre His Conduct towards Soldiers' Families. It is unnecessary now to enumerate the hardships and dangers that the brave men who compose our armies are endur ing, in order that we may live in the en joyment of peaceful and quiet homes. It is needless for us to enumerate the sleep less nights that they spend upon louely picket posts or in line of battle, that we may sleep soundly between clean sheets and under comfortable blankets. Nor need we speak of the horrors of the hos pital where, stretched upon hard mat trasses, they toss away the weary nights with no one near to speak a comforting work or cool their feverish lips. These things are all known to our readers. They have seen them they have felt them But the toils and sufferings are not all the soldier is compelled to endure. He can stand these with the courage of true manhood. It is on'y when he learns that the dear ones he left behind him are suffering for the necessaries of life, that his heart sinks within him and he be comes gloomy with despair. When he enlisted the country was will with enthusiasm and patriotism. The men of wealth said to him, " go," and we will see that your family does not want for anything. We cannot go our selves, but we can give, and will give liberally, to those who do go. Thousands of patriotic men enlisted under such cir cumstances. They went to fight for the old flag, expecting that those who remained at borne, to make money while they shed their blood, would at least share their profits with their needy families. They have proved true to their obligations. They have fought some of them have died many of them have been made cripples for life. Have onr citizens proved equally faifthful in . discharging their obligations? We be- i lieve they would, were it not for some j , , base souls who, by accident, occupy a I position between the soldiers' families and those who would provide for their comfort Of such are our Board of County Commissioners. We mean just : what we say. During the past summer a great amount of sickness has prevailed in our : city. In addition, the necessaries of ' life, as well as house rent, have been un- usually high. In consequence, many families of the soldiers who are now : standing between us and danger, have i suffered to an unusual extent. We learn that several families, who got along "last year without applying for any assistance, are now inffering keenly for the want of many little comforts. Mr. Greek, our Township Trustee, notified the Board of Commissioners of these sufferings and urged them to make an appro priation for relief. He went further. That the Board might be deprived of all excuse for not making an appropriation, he circulated a petition, requesting the Board to make an appropriation, which was signed by the largest tax-payers in the city. Our citizens are willing to pay nuerany mat me iamny ol every soldier guns ot our manutacturers, none ol from Vanderburgh county mav be com- w"ich are to be lighter than the 63 fortably provided for. There ' is but one Poun.der ad. m7 probably very much .n;(oklo . . ,. ,, , , heavier, this is proof enough that the equitable way of providing tins fund, new 8yStem is thought practicable. We and that is have the Commissioners ap- do not yet know that such ordnance can propria! the amount required and assess successfully carried or worked at sea, it against the tax-payers ; but we do know that it is manageable on The petition of which w- speak was I sh?re' a"d that its,,range and power are u r extraordinary a lesson far too impor stgned by men of all parties be reCeived with indifference. 'V All alike feel the justice of it, and m would respond cherfully according to their ability. No one to whom it was presented refused to sign it. Mr. Greek thought, however, he had name enough, and did not circulate the petition to the friend in Pittsburg, and gives a thrilling extent of obtaining nearly ad lite igna- account of bis escape from death during ttfres in the county. He did obtain sig- tne Lawrence massacre. He says : natures enough, and had the Board len Many miraculous escapes from the as animated by a single spark j( irt pat- "in'8 h?nd were made; none perhaps t. " ,j . more so than in my own case.

Nearly every county in the State has already made provision for destitute fam ilies of soldiers. Our county is not a whit behind others in patriotism and cursed with an ignorant, parsimonious Board of Commissioners who do not liberality. Unfortunately, however, it is sympathize with our gallant boys, and who will do nothing toward making their families comfortable if it can be helped- !

If they were Fully apprised that the men from this county would become haters of the Government and denoun cers of the administration, they would, we doubt not, withhold appropriations till doomsday. They want the soldiers to become dissatisfied, and if they can be made so no other way, these County Commissioners would accomplish their purpose through the sufferings of the soldiers' families. Mr. Nurre has asked the people to re tain him in the office of Commissioner. He was chosen by the otha two mem bers of the Board to fill the vacancy oc casioned by the death of Judge Foster. We cannot think the people will retain him in that position, when he seems so unwillin t;j make any appropriations for the reii-1!' of the wives and children of the soldier. Our people want a man of a different stripe. They want a man of more generous impulses, more patri otic spirit and broader views. They will vote for no man who is not a genuine friend of the soldier. Foreign Items. British and American Artillery. The London Times don't feel entirely comfortable over the performance of Gillmore's guns at Charleston. It says the siege guns used against shore fortifi cations by the Federals at Charleston have certainly done what nobody would expect of any guns in our service. They have battered down a fort at two miles' range; they have shelled a town at five miles, and we are assured they would be perfectly effective for the same work at seven miles. Here there can be ng doubt j uuuui me jjrucuce, auu it leaves me pow ers of our artillery far behind. Possibly some of the guns may have beeu disa bled, and there may be other drawbacks from their general, efficiency of which we are not informed, but the preat fact remains that Charleston was shelled from five miles distance, and Fort Sum- ter knocked to pieces at about hah' that range. Could our sixty-eight pounders suh ,servic,f as4l this? II must be observed, too, that these enor- mou9 guns were brought from a consid- erable distance to the scene of action, all(l that a11 the necessarv material had to, similarly transported. ; Snch ex- pious open a new epocn in sieoe opera- tions. We do not suppose that rort Sumter was any fair specimen of a forti fication, but that is of no importance to the moral. The moral is that guns of about three times the calibre used in our service have been successfully employ ed for breaching and bombarding pur poses at a range hitherto unknown. The article concludes as follows: " We are compelled to conclude that the Americans are giving us a ksson in the capabilities of siege artillery. We cannot say what practice may be made with the Armstrong 110 pounder, but we do not imagine that we have any batter ing guns in our service which could send their balls through twenty-six feet of earth, or through eleven inches of wrought iron, backed by twenty-four inches of solid oak. Yet the Federals, if we are to accept their own statements, have actually made a gun equal to this work, and have placed it in position be fore Charleston. It may be said, per haps, that other European nations are left in the rear like ourselves, by these new discoveries; but that may not be the case long. The Russians, we are told. have ordered as many as four thousand A Thrillixo Narrative. Rev. H D.

Up to this time we have no news of special importance regarding the doings either of our own forces or those of the enemy in the neighborhood of Chatta nooga. Railroad communication has not been resumed. The damage to the railroad is greater than was at first sup posed. Information has been received i which goes to show that the enemy has divided his mounted force engaged in the recent raid into several detachments, and these again iuto minor ones, and that such detached hands now infest the mountains and woods iu those neighbor hoods, thereby rendering common road travel dangerous for other than strong military commands. Telegraphic communication is sti.ll in terrupted to-day between here and Ste venson, Alabama. It is reported it will be 0. K. again to-night. I saw a gentleman to day who was made prisoner by the rebel forces when they were in the neighborhood of Mur freesboro.

He also says the rebels admited having failed to carry out to full success their main design, and they destroyed the railroad and bridges as much to pro tect their retreat and for the sake of do ing some mischief, as they did from any consideration of interfering with-Rose-crans supplies or reinforcements.
