A Touching Ciy for Help. The National Intelligencer publishes the subjoined letter, addressed by a well known citizen of East Tennessee, who has been driven trom his home, to Andrew Johnson. The letter is dated Jamestown, Kentucky, August 16th: DEAR SIR:—I arrived at this point totday, in company with about 210 men from Morgan, Roane, Scott, Fentress and Overton counties. We have just decided to proceed to Camp Robinson,near Lancaster. We are out of money, and traveling on the generosity and hospitality of our Union friends of Kentucky. We left our homes by different routes, and are together at this point as it were by chance, you may rest assured that the state of things in East Tennessee is indescribable. Many of our people, upon bare suspicion, are arrested end taken prisoners, insulted, abused, and carried into rebel camps, ihcro to be disposed of as the rebel mob thinks proper. Squads of cavalry and infantry are continually scouring over the country, offering our people, ...

gtisedlaneoKS $tabiujj. Funeral of a Drummer Hoy. There was a military funeral at Camp Kaloramo, Washington, on Saturday. On Friday, Joseph Winters, one of the drummers of the N. Y. Nineteenth, was drowned while bathing. An army correspondent thus refers to the sad event : He was a pleasant, good boy, )and his sudden death made a deep impression in the encampment. His body was brought up from the creek and laid beneath a new tent pitched to receive it, under the trees on the north side of the parade ground.— The men stood in silent rows in front of the tent until sundown, while a guard detailed for that purpose paced slowly back and forth. A letter was found in Joseph's pocket from "Cousin Susie, end as bis comrades thought that he had no parents or brother* or sisters living, his captain wrote to her. A "little barefooted fellow, about eight years old, stood on the land when Joseph's body was recovered by the divers, and when the surgeon, promptly on the spot, was vainly en...

The Bllud Mother's Last Look at her Babe. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 September 1861

The Bllud Mother's Last Look at her Babe. On the last Sabbath of 1860, when the cold winds of December were wailing the dirge-song for the departing year, we met at the funeral of an infant. Not two summers had blessed the child. Disease c«me early, and quickly performed its fatal work. Sweet words of Scripture wero read, a short exhortation made, an earnest prayer oTered, the benediclioa pronounced ; and then, after a moment's silence, the friends were invited to 'take the last look at the decased.' One and another came, and gazed with peculiar interest upon that beautiful form, which seemed as it it were only sleeping. But now all others step aside, tor the motor approaches. She u blind— has never seen the akiid she lores, and now has lost. Forward ah* IOMM ; her torm alrmkat cavers the little coffin. She afenw atrain- ing her sightless eyes to catch a glimpse of the loved one, beforo it is taken from her forever. But, as if convinced that this may not be, while tho tear...

Russell's Letters on the War. 1 [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 September 1861

Russell's Letters on the War. 1 Russell has written a second letter on the the battle of Bull Run, in which he says there were no daring deeds dono on either side, and that the only struggle was in the two belligerent parties trying to get away from each other. This possibly is a candid opinion of the battle to the extent that "Our own Correspondent" of the Times ! saw it. But unless report does Mr. Russell infinite discredit, he was a long and sale distance from any fighting, looking at the operation through a lorgnette. Among the first to leave the field and to add to the effect of the rout, was the gallant correspondent himself, who has been described by a brother correspondent in such a hurry, "trying to get away," that he could scarcely remember his own name, when a guard interposed to prevent the flight of the earliest of the runaways from the battle field. The panic that struck Mr. Russell so fearfully is very likely to make him suppose that every other person was equal...

Geu. Wool Hard on the Captains. [Newspaper Article] — Waynesburg Messenger — 11 September 1861

Geu. Wool Hard on the Captains. Gen. Wool is turning out "a trump."—He-Seems to be anxious to show to the nation that he isjnot too old to fight for the Union like a youngster. Some of his volunteer officers have beon not a little astonished by being enquired of how Jong it took their men to cook beans and other rations, a« though the food and cooking of the men were any of their business. A few similar questions put by the new commanding General appear to have giv«> en tbem new ideas, and it is supposed that at least some of the officers will find their level, and the men their advantage, under the new older of things. The men bare ever evinced a desire to have true military discipline placed upon them. They only want to know that their officers have a knowledge of their duty, and will require nothing more or les3 than what is right.— This confidence must be created before the proper relations can begin to exist between the officer and soldier. "How many men are thero ...
