Surprised. 

“Tickets, sir, if you please !” 

Between dusk and daylight— the warm 
gold of the sunset sky just fading into crim- 
son, and the Express train thundering over 
the iron track like some strong ferocious de- 
mon. Carl Silver became dimly conscious 
of these tilings as lie started from a brief, 
restless slumber, wherein his knapsack had 
served as a pillow, and stared vaguely into 
tlie sharp Yankee face of the obdurate con- 
ductor. 

“Ticket! I suppose I’ve such a tiling about 
me,” lie muttered drowsily, searching first 
one pocket and then another. "Oh, here it 
is. I say, conductor, are we near New 
York ?’’ 

"Twenty minutes or so will bring us into 
Jersey City, {sir — we are making pretty good 
time." 

And tlie sharp-faced official passed on, to 
liarrass tlie next unfortunate man who had 
neglected to put his ticket in his hat band ; 
while Captain Silver dragged himself into a 
sitting position, putting his two hands back 
oi his head witli a portentious yawn, and 
smiled to remember the fantastic dreams 
that had chased one another througli his 
brain during that half hour of cramped, un- 
easy slumber, from which the conductor had 
roused him — dreams in which bloody battle- 
fields and lonely night-marches had blended 
oddly with sweet home voices, and the sul- 
phurous breatli of artillery had mingled 
with violet scents from the twilight woods 
around, and gusts of sweetness from the 
tossing clouds of peacli blossoms, through 
which tlie Express train shot remorseless- 
ly . 

And then Carl Silver began to think of 
other tilings. 

“Conductor!" whispered tlie fat old lady 
opposite, in tlie bombazine bonnet and stiff 
colored shawl. 

"Yes'iii, ” said tlie man of tickets, stopping 
abruptly in iiis transit througli the cars, and 
inclining his ear. 

“That young man in tlie military cap, con 
ductor — I hope lie ain’t an escaped lunatic 
dressed up in soldier's clothes. I've heard o’ 
Btich tilings. And 1 don't like a hit the 
way lie keeps grinnin’ to himself and rabbin’ 
his two hands together. He's acted queer- 
ly all day, and I'm travellin' all alone, con- 
d uctorl" 

The conductor laughed and passed on Tlie 
old lady bridled in oll'ended dignity. Bless 
Iter anxious heart! — how was she to know 
that Capt. Silver was only rejoicing in the 
thoughts of tlie glorious “surprise" iie had 
in s to re for his mother and dimpled faced 
sister that night? Was it not a year — twelve 
long, long months — since he had looked up- 
on their (aces last ? And now — 

On, speed on your way, Express train, 
through quiet villages where daffodils sprin- 
kle all the gardens with gold ! Speed over 
the sloping hills where springing grass sends 
up a faint, dilicious smell, and brooks 
babble under swinging willows — past lone 
ly church-yards, where the white hands of 
innumerable gravestones licckon through 
the twilight and are gone ; for every throb 
ol your iron pulse brings one true heart 
nearer home ! Shot and shells have 
spared him for this hour; fever and pestil- 
ence and foul malaria have passed him by ; 
and now — 

Suppose there should he an accident! lie 
had heard ol such tilings on these lightning 
routes. Suppose he should be carried home 
a dead, mangled corpse, tlie words of greet- 
ing frozen into eternal silence on his lips, 
tlie glad sight sealed forever under the heavy 
eyelids! Strange that such morbid fancies 
should never have assailed him in the fire 
and smoke of Gettysburg, yet come to linn 
now, like gusts that would not be driven 
away, when he was within twenty minutes 
ol home! Would it break his mother's 
heart, or would she live on? And would 
Kate Meriam ? — Kate Meriam, the blue- 
eyed, shy little fairy, who would never look 
at him save through iter long brown lashes, 
and whose coy mouth always made him 
think of scarlet cherries and roses dashed in 
lew. 

"To think!” ejaculated Carl Silver, bring- 
ing down his bronzed fist on tlie window- 
ledge witli a force that made tlie glass rattle 
omniously and struck a chill to the heart ol 
the old ladv in tlie bombazine bonnet — “to 
think that I, who would knock down the 
man who ventured to tell me I was a cow- 
ard, should be afraid to say Irankly to a little 
slender girl that I love her; to think that 
the very touch of her glove, tlie sound of 
her footstep, tlie rustle of her ribbons, can 
frighten my self-possession away, and make 
a staring, silent idiot ot me? Alter all, what 
is a man s courage wortli ? There’s no use 
in thinking of it. 1 shall die an old bache- 
lor, for I’ll never marry any woman hut 
Kate Meriam, and I shall never dare to 
plead my cause with Kate. I wish I hadn’t 
such as absurd streak ol cowardice througli 
me.” 

Yet Captain Silver's men had told a dif- 
ferent tale when lie led them over the bridge 
in that dreadlul charge at Antietam. Cow- 
ardice! there arc several diiFerent interpre- 
tations to that word. 

“Carriage! carriage! No, 1 won't have a 
carriage Get away from roe, you tellows! 
You are worse than the locusts of Egypt, 
and ten times as noisy,” cried Captain Sil- 
ver, energetically elbowing his way througli 
the swarms of eager hnckmen, who were 
making night hideous at the foot of Court- 
landt street. "Bo you suppose 1 tun going 
to spoil my precious surprise by a carriage?!’ 

Broadway by gaslight! How strange, 
yet how familiar it seemed to the returning 
exile, with its stately facades ol freestone 
and marble, seeming literally to rest on 
foundations of quivering fire, and its throngs 
of people, coming and going in everlasting 
succession, like tlie tides ot a never-resting 
sea, Carl Silver’s heart leaped up in his 
breast witli a quick, joyous throb a( tlie old 
accustomed sights and sounds. It was good 
to hear his footsteps ringing on Manhattan- 
ese ground. 

No light in the house! His heart stood 
still a moment. This was strange — omni- 
otis. But then lie remembered that his 
mother was fond of sitting in the twilight, 
and dismissed the lingering doubt from his 
mind. How lucky, tlie door was on the 
latch, and swung noiselessly open. 

Hush ! not a creaking stair or clanking 
spur must betray him ; througli the old fa- 
miliar hall lie passed, and into his morth- 
er’s room, ligted only by tlie ruddy glimmer 
of a bright coal fire. 



“Where the mischief are they all ?” ejac- 
ulated Captain Silver under his breath 
“No matter — they'll be long soon : mean- 
time I'll wheel this big chair up, and take a 
bask, for the nir is chill, it it is the first of 
May. Won't they be astonished, though, 
when they come in? Upon my word, 
things couldn’t have happened nicer! Faugh! 
what a smell of paint — whitewash, too, as 
I’m a living sinner. Confound it, I've 
kicked over a pail of the stuff! If tlie wo- 
men tolks ain’t house cleaning !" 

Tlie Captain gave an indignant, conitemp- 
tuous sniff as he surveyed the desolate scene 
“What comfort a temale can find in turn- 
ing things upside down, and deluging tlie 
house with soap and water twice a year, I 
can’t imagine. Carpets all up — floors damp 
— curtains torn down — not one familiar ob- 
ject to greet a fellow’s eyes after a twelve 
month's absence from home. Heighlio! I 
think I'll light a cigar ” 

Which he did, and began to smoke and 
meditate 

There was a rnstle and tripping lootfall on 
tlie stairs. The Captain took out his cigar 
and listened. 

“That's Minny,” lie said to himself. 
“Mamma doesn’t dance upstairs like that.” 
He arose, and leaned against the door- 
casing as the dancing feet came nearer and 
nearer. How his heart beat as the fire- 
light shone upon a merino dreSk and a little 
white apron on the threshold I And tlie 
next moment he had caught tlie slight form 
in his arms and was showering kisses on 
cheek, and brow, and lips, and hair. 

“Caught for once, Miss Minny !" lie ex- 
claimed. “That’s to pay you for presuming 
to clean house without my permission ! No, 
yon are not going to escape I” 

Such a piercing scream as she rewarded 
his fraternal demonstration with ! Carl 
Silver let go her waist and retreated against 
the wall with a faint idea of breaking 
througli tlie lath and plaster, and hiding 
himself in the general ruin. For. as truly 
as he stood there quaking in his regimentals, 
tlie voice was not that of his sister Minny, 
but — Kate Meriam !” 

“How dare you!" she ejeculated with 
crimson cheeks and quivering lips. “I'll 
ring tlie bell and call tlie servants, if you 
don’t leave the house this instant !" 

“Upon mv word, I'm not a burglar or an 
assassin!" pleaded Carl, recovering h is self- 
possession in a measure, as he saw Kate’s 
breathless terror! “It was so dark I 
couldn’t see your face, and I thought it was 
mv sisterJMinny. Don't you know me, Miss 
Meriam — Capt Silver ?" 

“You are an imposter," said Kate with 
spirit, "Capt Silver is witli tlie Army ol tlie 
Potomac.’’ 

“No, lie’s not, he’s here,” urged Carl 
“How shall I prove that 1 am myself? Kate? 
Miss Meriam ?” 

For she had sunk on the floor and begun 
to cry He knelt beside iier witli a rough at- 
tempt at comfort. 

"No, she sobbed “only — only I was so 
frightened !” 

(lie little, trembling, hlue-eyed tiling! 
Carl Silver had never seen her in tears be- 
tare. No shv assumption of dignity now 
— no royal airs — only brown dishevelled 
hair He was the brave one now — how nat- 
ural it seemed to clasp the tinv palms in his 
own strong band ! 

“Kate, dearest, I love you ! With my 
whole heart Kate. Nay, do not be so 
frightened — 1 would die to save you one mo- 
ment's terror! Only tell me that your heart 
is mine !’’ 

And when the tears were dried, leav- 
ing tlie eyes like drenched violets and tlie 
cheeks flushed brightly, Carl Silver haul 
leave and license to keep one fluttering little 
hand in his, and he knew tie was an accept- 
ed lover. 

“But where are mv mother and sister?" 
lie asked at length. “And what is tlie so- 
lution of this strange riddle ?” 

‘ Don't you know,” laughed Kate; they do 
not live here any more.” 

“Not live here?” 

“Have yon torgotten that yesterday was 
the fii st ol May. We occupy the house now 
— papa and aunt Milicenl and I.” 

“Olio!’’ quoth Captain Silver, “so they 
have moved, and I never heard of it. Upon 
my word they treat me pretty coolly.” 

“Ah, hut you would have heard of it,” 
said Kate, “if you had staid quietly in camp 
to get your letters, instead of roving over tlie 
country without a word of warning to vour 
friends.” 

"Give me one more kiss, Kate, and I'm off 
to see them. One more, my betrothed wife. 
Does it not seem like a dream.” 

“And you are my soldier now," whispered 
Kate, playing with tlie gold buttons of his 
coat with temulous fingers. "Mine to send 
out into tlie battle-field, to dream of and 
pray for. Carl, I have always repined that 
I had no gift lor my country, now I can give 
my best and dearest to aid her cause.’’ 
“Spoken like a soldier's wife, Kate” said 
Carl, will) kindling eyes. “If you but knew 
how much better we rough men fight for 
knowing that woman's love and woman's 
prayers enshrine us witli a golden, unseeen 
armor — nonsense! I’m gelling sentimental 
Good night ” 

So there were three surprises that May 
evening— one lor Kate Meriam, (wouldn’t 
you have been surprised, Mademoiselle, to 
be caught and kissed in tlie dark, and nev- 
er know who tiie kisser was ?) one lor Capt 
Silver, (a very agreeable, one though,) and 
the old Original surprise, if we tnav term it, 
for his mother and sister. And Carl has 
not left oft" congratulating himself that his 
“leave of absence" happened to fall in the 
migratory month of May. For if he hadn't 
blundered into Miss Meriam’s house and 
kissed her by mistake, thereby bringing mat- 
ters to a focus, probably to this day lie never 
would have mustered courage to tell her ol 
his love. 

And when the golden armadas of llip au- 
tumn leaves float down tlie forest brooks, 
and tue blue mist ol Indian Summer wraps 
tlie bills in dreamy light, Carl Silver is 
coming back to seal Kate Meriam’s destiny 
with a wedding ring

The rapid increase in this District of lawless 
bands of armed men engaged in interrupting 
railroad and telegraphic communication, plunder- 
ing and murdering peaceful Union citizens, de- 
stroying tho mails, Jco., calls for tho adoption of 
stringent measures on tho part of tho military 
authorities for their suppression. 

Therefore all guerrillas, armed prowlers by 
whatever name thoy may be known, and rebel 
sympathizers are hereby admonished that in fu- 
ture stern retaliatory measures will be adopted and 
strictly enforced whenever the lives or property 
of peaceful citizens aro jeopardized by the law- 
less acts of such men. 

Rebel sympathizers living within five miles of 
any scene of outrage committed by armed men 
not recognized as public enemies by tho rules and 
usages of war, will be arrested and sent beyond 
tho limits of tho United States, in accordance 
with instructions from tho Major General com- 
manding the Military Division of tho Mississippi. 
So much of the property of rebel sympathizers 
may ho necessary to indemnify tho Govern- 
ment or loyal citizens for losses incurred by the 
acts of such lawless men will be seized and ap- 
propriated for this purpose. 

Whenever an unarmed Union citizen is inur» 
derod, four guerrillas will bo seelctod from tho 
prisoners in tho hands of the military authori- 
ties and publicly shot to death in tho most con- 
vonieut placo near the scene of outrage.

State of Kentucky, 
Louisville, Ky. October 10, 1864. 

HE FOLLOWING IS PUBLISHED FOR 
tho information of all concerned : 

Men whoso names have been drawn in tho draft 
are, from that moment, in military service, unless 
legally exempt, and this fact they aro bound to 
show. 

All men drawn must report to tho Board of 
Enrollment according to their notifications, in 
default of which they arc liable to arrest as deser- 
ters and to the consequences thereof, which include 
liability for the expenses attending tho arrest in 
cases where tho person arrested is, alter examin- 
ation, held to service. The Board of Enroll- 
ment sits at tho Head-Quarters of tho Provost 
Marshal of the District, ho being President ol the 
Board. 

In cases whero the serving of notices to drafted 
men within ten days after drawing, has been found 
impracticable, by reason of forcible resistance, 
tho service of notices as soon as practicable there- 
after, is valid. 

The civil authorities of the State arc requested, 
by the Provost Marshal General to co-operate with 
thegmilitary authorities in arresting all deserters 
as abovo described, as well as deserters from tho 
former draft who haring failed to report, may bo 
found lurking in the State. 

Men who havo enlisted after their names have 
been drawn in the draft, whether notified or not, 
are in military service under tho draft, and not 
by the enlistment, which is void ; thoy must re- 
port to the Board of Enrollment of tho District in 
which they wore drawn, and if they desired to con- 
tinue in the organization they had chosen, they can 
state their preference, when, if practicable, tho 
commandant of tho rendezvous may assign them 
to such organization. 

Commanding officers of regiments and other or-

Thanksgiving Proclamation. 

By the President of the United Staff* of America. 

It has pleased Almighty Ood to prolong our 
national life another year, defending us with His 
guardian care against unfriendly designs from 
abroad, and vouchsafing to us in His mercy many 
signal victories over tho enemy who is of our 
own household, It has also pleased our Heaven- 
ly Fattier to favor as well our citizens in their 
homes as our soldiers in their camps and our 
sailors on the seas with unusual health. He has 
largely augmented our free population by eman- 
cipation and by immigration, whilo He has opened 
to us now sourcos of wealth, and has crowned 
the labor of our workingmen in every de- 
partment of industry with abundant reward. 
Moroovor, He has been pleased to animate and 
inspire our minds and hearts with fortitude, 
courage and resolution sufficient for the great 
trial of civil war into which we have been brought 
by our adherence as a nation to the cause of free- 
dom and humanity, and to afford to us reasonable 
hopes of an ultimate and happy deliverance from 
all our dangers and afflictions. 

Now, therefore, I, ABRAHAM LINCOLN, 
President of the United States, do horeby appoint 
and sot apart the LAST THURSDAY IN NO- 
VEMBER NEXT as a day which I desire to be 
observed by all my fellow citizens, wherever they 
may then be, as a day of Thankeyiving and 
Prayer to Almighty God, the bcnificent Creator 
and Ruler op tup Universe; and I do further 
recommend to my fellow citizens aforesaid, that 
on hat occasion they do reverently humble 
themselves in the dust, and from thence offer up 
penitent and fervent prayers and supplications 
to the Great Disposer op Events for a return 
of tho inestimable blessings of peace, union and 
harmony throughout tho land, which it has 
pleasod Him to assign as a dwelling place for 
ourselves and our po^erlty throughout all gene- 
rations. 

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my 
hnnd and caused tho seal of the United States to 
be affixed. 

Done at tho city of Washington this 20th day 
of October, in the year of our Lord, 1864, and of

£®“Beniiett II. Young, the leader of the 
■label guerrillas, who made the raid from 
Cauada into Vermont, is a native of Ken- 
tucky, and was a student of divinity under 
Stuart Robinson, the rebel Editor of the dis- 
Ictyal pseudo-True Presbyterian, who is re- 
siding in Canada. 

B$*L. The Dayton Journal says Mr. Wm. 
Huffman of that city, aged 96 years, voted 
for Lincoln on November 8. He cast his 
first vote for Washingten, while a resident of 
t’ne State of New Jersey, and was a Demo- 
crat until the rebellion broke out. 



The Richmond Examiner thus pro- 
claims the principles upon which t^ e trait- 
ors found their Confederacy: 

“The establishment of the Confederacy is 
verily a distinct reaction ogaiust the whole 
course of the mistaken civlization of the 
age. For liberty, equality, fraternity, we 
have deliberately substituted slavery, subor- 
dination and government.”

BSf" At 2 o'clock, on the morning of 
November 9, a terrible tornado passed over 
Chester, Illinois. More titan a dozen bouses 
were blown down and completely demolish- 
ed, burying their sleeping inmates in their 
ruths. Five persons were killed and twelve 
or fifteen wounded, several ot them severely. 
A brick church was blown to atoms. Sever- 
al skiffs in the river were carried near 
quarter of a mile up the bluff

cordingly dissolved. 

PAUL R. SHIPMAN. 



Hfflu The New York Journal o! Commerce, 
which has for four years past strenuously 
opposed the Administration, and given all 
the aid and comtort to the rebels that it 
could and keep clear of the actual overt act, 
since the election, aud the overwhelming 
defeat of the anti-Union platform and nom- 
inees, declared that henceforth it will avoid 
the discussion of political questions. The 
Journal of Commerce, the Boston Courier, 
and the Nationa. Intelligencer, during the 
recent canvass, fast off the dignity which 
had previously marked their course, and de- 
scended to originate and promulgate more 
perversions of the acts and conduct ol the 
Administration, than all the other respecta- 
ble papers in the Union. Their perversions 
and misrepresentations formed the stock in 
trade in which the Louisville Journal and 
"Oilier professed Union papers principally 
dealt. They well may be sick of their par- 
t:zan cause : and we warn the people not to 
be misled by their professed withdrawal 
from political discussion : it is but a ruse, 
whereby they can stab the Union cause more 
securely. 



The Plot aeninst Clncaso. 

We have already noticed the discovery of 
a plot to release the rebel prisoners at Camp 
Douglas and rob and burn Chicago, and the 
arrest of many of the leaders, and others. 
The details have been received in the Chi- 
cago papers. The plot was discovered (roni 
suspicions being excited by the arrival of 
many armed bv trains and boats Irom all 
directions. Telegrams were also received by 
Hon John Wentworth from the Southern 
portion of Illinois that bushwhackers from 
Kentucky and Missouri and rebel sympa- 
thizers from Illinois — Sons of Liberty — were 
filling the cars Irom Chicago. Vigilance on 
the part ot the authorities was soon reward- 
ed by the capture of many of the conspira- 
tors. From the detailed account of the ar- 
rest, etc., in the Chicago Tribune of Novem- 
ber 8, we extract the following: 

The programme ot the vi 1 liana will he 
found fully detailed in (he substance of a 
conlession made by Charles Walsh, late can 
didate tor Sheriff, more recently Brigadier 
General of the Sons of Liberty, and now a 
prisoner in Camp Douglas. 

The confession is perfectly damning, im- 
plicating large numbers of Copoerheads in 
this city, leading members of the Invincible 
Club, some of them candidates on the Cop- 
perhead ticket. He confesses to all ; yea, 
much more than was supposed. 

Walsh admits that the mine should have 
been sprung two weeks ago, but for various 
reasons the execution of the plot was post- 
poned till election day. The plan was the 
very same at first as subsequently, except 
as lo interfering with the election. The 
infernal scheme as last shaped was as fol- 
lows : 

A (orce of about 400 men — K G. C.’s— 
bushwhackers and guerrillas, were to be as- 
sembled here, and with them an attack 
should have been made on Camp Douglas 
last evening for the purpose of liberating the 
rebels confined there. Walsh, with 150 men, 
was to assault the cast side of the camp, and 
another man, whose name we may not now 
furnish, with 200, was to take the west side. 
The operation was to he superintended by 
Marmaduke, who should have the remain- 
ing 50 men ns a reserve corps ready to act 
where wanted. The programme was to break 
down the fence, and stampede the 12,000 
prisoners who were all ready for the work, 
having been informed of it in some way best 
known to themseves. The prisoners were 
to be armed as spe. dilv as possible, the gar- 
rison overpowered, their arms and artillery 
secured, and the garrison made prisoners. 
This, it was believed, could easily be done if 
the attack were made as concerted, and in- 
deed there is little room to hope that it would 
have been otherwise than successful had it 
not been nipped in the bud by a premature 
exposure ol the whole scheme. 

With Marmaduke at their head, the reb- 
els were to march into the city, and take 
possession ot the Court House and square 
as the base of offensive operations. They 
were then to take possessien of the polls, 
voting in each precinct, and preventing (he 
deposition in the ballot-boxes of any other 
than the McClellan ticket This being ac- 
complished, and a majority in the State thus 
secured, they were to proceed at once to the 
work ol destruction. All the banks were to 
be robbed, the stores gutted, and then set 
fire to the principal buildings For the pur- 
pose of controlling this latter phrase of the 
business, the water plugs had all been mark- 
ed, and a lorce detailed to set the water run- 
ning so as to empty the mains and exhaust 
the water supply. The telegraph wires were 
to be cut on the first onset, and then set fire 
to the railroad depots, the elevators, the ship- 
ping, &c. The persons of the leading Union 
men in the city were to t e seized, and 
they, with the plunder, marched off South- 
ward. 

It was believed that with this force of 
nearly 13,000 men the city could be so quick- 
ly overwhelmed as that effective opposition 
would be impossible, and that they could 
then, under their leader Marmaduke, march 
in any direction with perlecl impunity. 

The scheme was well concocted. It lack- 
ed only one essential — a successlul issue. 
Thank Providence that it was denied them 
They had assembled here, as per pro - 1 
gramme, and had the arrests been delayed a j 
single day, it would have been too late — 
the olt-repeated threat would have been ex- 
ecuted, and rivers of blood would have run 
in the streets ot Chicago. No one can doubt 
that, had they once commenced active ope- 
rations, they would have been joined by aj 
a sufficiently large number ol Chicago dis- 
loyalists to have made a clean sweep of the 
city and reduced it to a heap of ashes 

Walsh is completely unmanned — broken 
down by his sudden arrest, the complete ex- 
posure ol the treasonable conspiracy into 
which he has been led made 'he dupe ol 
persons more designing than himself, who 
have manufactured out ot him a genuine 
cat’s-paw He evidently feels that his only 
chance of safety is to make a clean breast of 
the whole matter, and expose the villains 
who have overpersuaded him into this net. 
He now sees the deep guilt ol the whole 
transaction and the depth of the gulf on 
whose brink he has been toying. 

Marmaduke has made a parital confes- 
sion, or rather a scries of admissions, which 
so far as they go, fully substantiates Mr 
Walsh's statements, and leave nodonbtthat 
the conspiracy was fully as diabolical in its 
character as is represented above He has 
made these statements lo a tnan who form- 
erly served under him, and whom he still 
supposes to be in the rebel interest. It is 
worthy of remark that Marmaduke when 
first captured was especially desirous to 
have some brandy, which being presented, 
ne cooled down and become quite easy in 
his manner. • 

Happily for us, and for the country at 
large, their schemes have so far failed, "and 
those of them who have thus far adventured 
into the city, are now in that very cage 
whence they intended to release the rebel 
prisoners. 

From tite description of the more promi- 
nent prisoners we make brief extracts : 

Charles Walsh is a man well known as a 
virulent Irish Copperhead, and is the first 
man who was Suspected of being connected 
with the proposed insurrection. During the 
late Copperhead Convention it was discover- 
ed that he was engaged in manufacturing 
large quantities of bullets, and since that 
time lie lias been closely watched. For 
some days past it was known that he was 
secreting some men in his house, as he was 
purchasing from twelve to twenty pounds ol 
lieetsteak per day, and on his arrest Captain 
Cantrell and private Charles Traverse, both 
in the rebel service, were found with him, 
and, of course, also arrested. Capt. Can- 
trell was one of Morgan’s old comniaad 
Walsh was at one time a Sergeant at -Arms 
in the State Legislature, and served for five 
years as a soldier in the Florida war. Two 
years ago he ran on the Copperhead ticket 
for Sheriff, but was defeated, since which 



time he has been an active member of the 
Sons of Liberty, holding the position of 
Brigadier General in that treasonable body. 
On the whole there is more than sufficient 
evidence to consign this traitor to the gal- 
lows, which in all probability will speedily 
terminate his treasonable career 

Buckner S Morris is a Kentuckian of 
some noterily in this city, inasmuch as he 
lias for some time past been suspicioned as 
a man of rebel proclivities. He was first a 
Whig, then a Know-Nothing, and lastly a 
Democrat. Some years ago he served a 
term as Judge of the Circuit Court, and fail- 
ing in obtaining re-election to that office, 
four years ago, ran on the Copperhead tick- 
et for the position of Governor, in which he 
was badlv beaten by Hon. Richard Yates 
Failing in obtaining an official position from 
the loyal people of the North, Judge Mor- 
ris became an inveterate rebel sympathizer, 
and now occupies the position ol Treasurer 
of the treasonable society known as the 
Sons of Liberty. Col Sweet possesses abun- 
dant prool to convict this man of treason ot 
the blackest hue 

Col. Vincent Marmaduke is by all means 
one of the most important prisoners He 
was originally a member ol the Missouri 
State Legislature but was imprisoned at St 
Louis aud subsequently expelled from the 
State on account of disloyalty. In 1861 and 
1862 be attended the State Convention as a 
delegate, which position closed his political 
career. He is a brother to the rebel Major 
General Marmaduke, and has undoubtedly 
been sent to this city to play an active part 
in the proposed work ol rapine and blood- 
shed. He was at Chicago at the time of the 
Chicago Convention with a large force of 
rebels under his command to act in concert 
with Dodd, Walker, Vallandigham and Co. 
He returned on the same errand a few days 
ago and is now in custody. 

The Col. St. Ledger Grenfeld, Adjutant 
General on Morgan’s staff, is a British officer 
who has seen three years' service in the Con- 
federate army, haviug obtained three years’ 
leave of absence from the British service, 
and is a sprig of nobility, known at home 
a3 St. Ledger Granville. He was on Mor- 
gan’s staff, and It is term of service ending 
sometime last spring he ran the blockade to 
Bermuda. Not being able to find a vessel 
to take him to Halifax as soon as he wish- 
ed, he went to the American Consul and oh 
lained a pass to New York, under fraudu- 
lent representations, where lie reported to 
Gen Dix, and subsequently to Secretary 
Stanton; He was successful in obtaining a 
pass to Canada, where he reported to his fel- 
low rebel officers the success of his ruse, and 
boasted of his exploits as one of Morgan’s 
band of geenlel thieves and cut-throats. Ex- 
pecting to add new laurels to his military 
fame, be joined Marmaduke in his expedi- 
tion to Chicago, and has been captured. 

Another person, called Cantrell, is un- 
doubtedly a rebel officer known asQuantrell 
in Canada, from his connection with Quan- 
trell in the raid on Lawrence, Kansas, in Au- 
gust, 186.3. II is assumed name in Canada is 
Col Rob’t Lee, but his real name is Lt Rob't 
Lee Reams, of a Missouri or Arkansas regi- 
ment, who was sent by Pemberton, in the 
spring of 186.3, from Vicksburg to Missouri, 
on recruiting service. He visited Washing- 
ton a few weeks ago, to see his father and 
family, who are noted secessionists, and have 
sent Iroquent sums ot money to him in Can- 
ada On reaching New York he went into 
business as a bounty-jumper, and was ar- 
rested at Watertown as adeserter, but jump- 
ed irom the cars and escaped. 

Reams boasted in Canada of having him- 
self shot three or four of the Lawrence vic- 
tims. lie shot sheriff Brown twice, and then 
attempted to burn the house in which lie 
fell when shot the second time. He 6hot 
one of the Eldridge brothers, and a hotel 
keeper whose name escapes my recollec- 
tion 



War News and Army Items. 

A letter Irom New Orleanp, of the date of 
October 29, says that on the 26tli Buckner, 
in command of a rebel lorce attacked and 
captured Morganza, with 1,900 Union troops, 
and all the arms and stores. We do not give 
tiie slightest credit to the report. Exchanges 
publish news Irom persons who were in 
Morganza four days after the capture is 
said to iiave occured, who heard nothing of 
it; and passengers and officer? ot steamers 
which lelt New Orleans as late as November 
1st heard nothing of it. 'The Twenty-second 
and Nineteenth Kentucky were at Morgan- 
za at latest accounts, and portions of those 
regiments which had been held as prisoners 
ot war in Texas, and just exchanged, were 
with them. 

From the Army ol the Tennessee we have 
no reliable news. Hood’s rebel army is re- 
ported near Florence, Ala, with Gen. Thom- 
as, in command ol a sufficient lorce, draw- 
ing li is coils around him. .Gen. Sherman is 
reported lo have destroyed Atlanta, and 
moved his force southward, with thirty days 
provisions Some of the reports say he has 
gone to Andersonville to release the Union 
prisoners from the barbarous treatment the 
rebels are inflicting upon them. Others, 
that lie has gone to Savannah, and will take 
Macon and Milledgeville, the seat of Gov- 
ernment. in his way. We shall soon hear 
from him and Thomas authentically. 

On the 7th, and again on the 9th of 
November, the rebels made attacks on the 
Union troops at Atlanta, but were repulsed. 
Some of the rebels taken prisoners said they 
had arrived from Lee's army but two days 
belore. 

From East Tennessee wc have informa- 
tion that Gen. Gillem has gained another 
victory over the rebels under Gen. Vaughn. 
He utterly routed them, and drove them in 
the greatest contusion lorty-lour miles. 

There arc no movements reported by the 
forces in front ot Petersburg and Richmond. 

SarThe returns so far in, of the election 
in this State, indicate that not one-half of 
the voters went to the polls. The McClel 
lan Union men, rebels and rebel sympathi- 
zers probably polled 99-100ths of their 
strength. The Union men were kept from 
doing so by the threats of the guerrillas, 
and the threatened proscription of mechan- 
ics and laborers by McClellan men, if they 
should vole for Mr. Lincoln. From the re- 
turns received, we have not a doubt that 
Mr. Lincoln would have carried the State, 
had a full vote been polled, by at least 20,- 
000 . 

SOL-Gen. Wright, elected on the 8th No- 
vember to represent the eight district of 
New Jersey in Congress, died on the 10th. 
Hori John P. Elton, one of the Presidential 
Electors for Connecticut, also died on the 
10th November, two days after his election. 



[From the Knoxvillo Whig. 

Assaults of the Louisville Jonrnal. 

To George D Prentice : 

Since the opening of this Presidential 
campaign 1 have been repeatedly assailed 
through your paper, either editorially or by 
such dismissed officers and humbugs as 
Wolford - I have never replied either to 
your editorial attacks, or the attacks ot dif- 
ferent correspondents. I have felt assured 
that you desired to make some little capi- 
tal for your Constitntional-Conservalive- 
Stat»s-Righls-Peace-on-any-terms ticket, and 
it lias gratified me a little to know that my 
blows have been felt somewhere. In poli- 
cing your attacks at this late day, it will be 
apparent to all that I address myself to you, 
and not to the odds and ends of all God’s 
creation, who compose the newlv organized 
party ol Democrats and traitors with whom 
you are associated. 

In your paper of the 30th October, you 
state editorially, that “ Browlow having re- 
ceived office from. Lincoln, he now declares his 
approbation, as toe understand, of all that Lin- 
coln has done and all that he may hereafter do. 
Every such man has his price." 

This, Mr Prentice is a direct charge of 
bribery and corruption and needs to be vin- 
tilated by a statement of (acts, after which 
I propose to contrast my record with yours, 
and to take a brief view of the relations 
your family and mine sustain to this rebel- 
lion. 

I hold an office in the Treasury Depart- 
ment which was conferred upon me by Mr 
Chase without my seeking it, or any friend 
applying (or me. The pay is not equal to 
the labor performed, and at no time has 
paid the board of my small family, with 
my two sons in the army. I have retained 
the position because I desired to serve my 
friends in East Tennessee, and to unite 
with them in restricting the benefits of trade 
to the loyal men of the country. 

During the first eighteen months of the 
war. you, associated with others, held office 
under Lincoln, or, if you please, were mixed 
up with contracts; and when I last sawyou, 
in Nashville, summer was a year ago, you 
was staving and puffing along, to and from 
the front, moving heaven and earth, to se- 
cure some big contracts to supply the army 
of the Cumberland, and writing the most 
sickening and flattering notices of Gen. Ros- 
ecrans. in the hope of winning upon him and 
his officials. But all your flattery failed, and 
all the letters you presented failed to secure 
for you the contracts you sought ; and thus 
refusing to give you your “price," you bolt- 
ed from the support of Lincoln's adminis- 
tration. While your were interested in con 
tracts tinder the Government, you was as 
good a Lincoln man as I was. 

To be candid with you, Mr. Prentice, you 
figured badly in your scramble after con- 
tracts and clamor for extra privileges — oth- 
ers, associated with you. and making a tool 
of you, and using your position as a journ- 
alist, to worm themselves into positions 
where they could swindle the Government. 
Indeed, I heard the remark made by men 
who had always been your admirers, that 
it was humiliating, nay, mortifying and dis- 
graceful , to see a poor old man, in his do- 
tage, and under the influence of liquor and 
an inordinate love of money, in such a drive 
as vou were in, going and comin^to Rose- 
cran's headquarters, and calling at the St. 
Cloud Hotel, at Nashville, to muster up ad- 
ditional hackers. 

While I was North, after 1 had spoken 
extensively, and my speechts were reported 
equally extensively, and I was made to say 
n the world what I really did say that I 
endorsed Lincoln's entire war policy, and 
the putting down of the rebellion even at 
the cost of exterminating the Southern pop- 
ulation. you wrote to me and proposed to join 
me in partnership in starting a new Union 
paper in Xashvil/e — a offer I politely declin- 
ed It is due to you to state that, at that 
time, yon were receiving your '■price," and 
mv principles were not offensive to you. 
You are the last man in America to talk 
about men having their “price" and selling 
out to Lincoln. 

There is a slight difference in the posi- 
tions occupied by your family and mine, and, 
as a necessary consequence, your principles 
and mine must differ My wile aud little 
children, after I had been incarcerated for 
three months and sent out of the country, 
were unceremoniously forced to pack up and 
vacate their house and home, and go North, 
at their own expense, upon thirty six hours' 
notice, and thus thrown upon my hands 
North, while my property remained here 
for the use ot (he Confederacy I thought 
all the time, and still think, that the Gov- 
ernment ought to have done something 
more (or life than to confer upon me this 
small office, although I have not expressed 
this opinion belore. 

My two sons entered the Federal army, 
and one o! them is now at home on crutches, 
because ot wounds received in leading his 
regiment of cavalry in a charge upon Wheel 
er a forces in Middle Tenneesee. My other 
son is in Gen. Gillem’s command, and was 
in the fight when the great Kentucky horse 
thief. Morgan, was killed, under whom and 
with whom your sons have been fighting against 
the Government upon whose bounty their rebel 
mother and contract- hunting father are living. 
One of your sons was killed in Kentucky 
while on a horse-stealing expedition under 
rebel officers. Your other son is now on trial 
in Virginia, for the murder of a brother reb- 
el by the name of White. Your wife is an 
avowed rebel and ought to be sent South by 
the Federal authorities; and vou are but one 
degree removed Irom a rebel and a traitor, 
having completely played out. There is not 
a true-hearted Union man in your office, un- 
less lie be some one of the employees. Your 
paper is no longer Union authority, but is 
rapidly sinking into disrepute and meeting 
with that contempt its treason merits. 

With pity for the sorrows of a poor old 
man, I am, fee.,

LOUISVILLE NATIONAL 

UNION PRESS. 

A DAILY NEWSPAPE II 

To Represent and Advocate the views of Uncon- 
ditional Union Men. 

l~NROM the inception of tho rebellion, tho gon- 
uino Union sentiment of tho Stato of Ken- 
tucky has found but little expression, either in 
tho addresses of tho prominent politicians or in 
tho prose. This stato of things, at all timos a 
sourco of murmuring, though somewhat allevia- 
ted by tho partial supply of loyal journals from 
other States, has at last ripened into dissatisfac- 
tion and a positive demand for such a newspaper. 

Demanding that the rebellion shall be suppress- 
ed, wo would havo all the moans necessary to 
suppress it cheerfully supplied. Regarding unity 
as essential to speedy success, wo would enforce 
it as the duty of every citizen to give to those 
who administer the Government — whilst tho war 
continues — sympathy and support. Believing 
the rebellion to bo not only without palliation 
or excuse, but a crime wc would have it taught 
that thoso who havo inaugurated and prosecut- 
ed it should wholly bear the responsibility of 
its guilt. Rccogniziug tho rebellion as gigantic 
in its proportions, wc woul havo the difficulty of 
grappling with it fully realized. 

In so wide a field where the instruments em- 
ployed must be varied, errors of judgment are 
unavoidable. Wo would not therefore, judge 
harshly of tho means employed, whilst we see 
they aro suggested by a sincere desire to re-es- 
tablish tho authority of tho Government. In a 
word, wc wish to teach that it is the paramount 
duty of the Government to preserve the Union 
by all tho means rccognizod by civilized warfare. 
Rejoicing at every triumph of our arms, we de- 
siro to affiliate with those true Union men every- 
where, who hope for, and look to the nation’s 
success in the field — not to its defeat as tho 
surest means of securing a lasting and honorable 
peace. 

Tho vote of tho people of Kentucky, on every 
occasion — and their resolutions in their primary 
assemblies, far ahead of their politicians, far in 
advance of their press, are to us the surest guar- 
anty — that a majority are with us. The object 
of this paper is to givo organization to that ma- 
jority, and to dovelope into political action 
the convictions which, in their hearts tho people 
cherish. Also, to tako full advantage of tho 
facilities at command to furnish its patrons with 
tho current news, and to dovelope somo important 
features of a Daily, that have not hitherto receiv 
ed from the press here the prominence desirable 
in a mercantile community. 

Without waiting for the new Press, Type, Ac., 
ordered, the Publisher, depending upon his pres- 
ent resources, not inconsiderable, ventures to an- 
nounce tho appearance of the first number on 
Monday, April 18th, 1864.

FISK’S METALLIC BURIAL CASES 

W ERE introduced into this community by 
myself about 1847, and a large number of 
calls attended with entire satisfaction, to all con- 
cerned, until 1857, when I discontinued the trade. 
Since that time Mr. A. G. Caiumack has had the 
trade almost exclusively, and recently expressing 
a strong determination to retire from tho business, 
and offering very reasonable inducements, J. Wil- 
lie Graham and myself purchased his entire stock 
on hand, which, together with a fine assortment 
of CASES AND CASKETS, received since the 
purchase from him, makes our present supply 
very ample. 




We havo also concluded to manufacture and 
keep constantly on hand a full assortment of 
WOODEN COFFINS, of every size, price, and 
quality. 

We are also prepared to offer special induce- 
ments to undertakers in or out of the city, either 
for Cases, Caskets, Wooden Coffins, and every 
description ofCoffins trimmings, all of which wc in 
tend to keep and offer on reasonable terms. 

Individuals or families can feel assured that all 
orders entrusted to us, will bo promptly and care 
fully attended to. Apply to
