Mississippi River at New Madrid on
the :7th, and attacked the rebels in the
rear, opposite Island Nd. 10. The
rebels deserted their land batteries,
End surrendered. We captured three

It should be . gratifying to our Dele
gate, to know that .his course in regard to
ctivtrting the Legislative appropriation,
meets with the apprcoation of his con
stituents at home. We will venture the
assertion, and without fear of successful
contradiction, that there is not a voter in
Nebraska, whose personal interest does
not incline him otherwise, who is opposed
to diverting the Legislative appropriation
to tho payment of our war lax, and dis
jensmg for the time being, with the an
nual meeting of the Legislature.' As
evidence of this we mention the fact that
w't t ii p n vv ; i n 1 1 1 s : ii i 1 1'. i pii v. if-
gardless of party alHaiicns, have so ex
pressed themselves, save one, the Omaha
lIr. Tavlor is recerallv
y.-vw.- j 0 j
right cii almost all matters of importance,
but he raises the figure on this. We
attribute his eroneotis position ta the fact
that being a newcomer in the Territory,
he doe's not properly understand the
wishes and necessities, of cur people.
Aside 'from, diverting "the annual ap
propriations to the payment of cur tax,
the people of Nebraska have long since
come to the conclusion that we have had,
and do have at each session cf the Leg
islature, entirely, too much legislation;
to much so that the labors cf our Legis
lators result injuriously to the Territory,
rather than beneficially, and therefore
they would cciider it both expedi
ent, and very desirable, to divert the ap
propriation to some other purpose. Un
der other than present circumstances, the
diverting of the '..'0,000 for a few years,'
to the purpose cf erecting a penitentiary,
or the co:" ' '- capital buildings,
would r.i : . . vi . j of the people of
Nelrr. ., v.3 ar 4uite sure.
2: at tc e question more directly.
C.r frier d ct the Republican offers as
cr.-3 iica Why this dirersion should net
, that it wiJ relieve Shorter,
I Cell', and Tiff, notorious rebels, and who
I are lare land holders ia this Territory.
Grant that they are relieved. By re
lieving them of one dollar, we at the
same time relieve the actual settler of
at least ten dollars. In this wise The
speculator's lands are a'l wild, unim
proved, while those of the settler's are
all improved, aud consequently valued at
ten times higher than those of the specu
lator. Surely it is not policy, wisdom or
good sense to oppress ourselves in order
to make a few non-resident rebels pay a
few dollars tax. " ?"
The Republican is further disposed to
censure Mr. Daily, for asking Congress
to do for us what the last Legislature
failed to do, claiming that because the
Legislature failed to express itself in
favor of the movement, the people did
not so wish. We : need not remind the
Editor how it was that the Joint Resolu
tion failed to pass the Legislature, or say
more to our readers than, that its defeat
was accomplished by the "tricks of the
Nine-tenths of the last Legislature
were in favarof memoralizing Congress
to Jo juet what Mr. Daily has asked,
and what the House has done, and had
there been no "outside pressure" brought
to bear, the memorial would hare passed
by an overwhelming majority. Mem
bers of the Legislature sometimes are poor
representatives of the wishes of the peo
ple. They certainly were last winter-
those who voted against the memorial.
Congress can rest assured that it cannot
now confer a more desirable favor on the
people of Nebraska than to credit the
Territory with its amount of war tax,
and withhold the Legislative appropria
tion. Mr. Daily can do nothing more
satisfactory to his constituents than to
urge and secure the concurrence of the
Senate in the action of the House.

It is hardly worth while writing, as all
news of importance will have reached
yo before this, but to luive you and Dave
Seigle know that I am still living, and
likely to again be seen in Brownville and
vicinity, I drop you a few lines.
The weather for a few days past has
been anything but pleasant; although
there is no snow on the ground , there is
plenty of mud, and every low orsrarapy
place for which the South is noted is
overflowed with water. 1 You have doubt
less heard of the capture of Ft. Donald
son, and of the part our boys acted, so I
will not go into details. I will, however,
mention an incident or two, which will
give you an idea of a battle-. -
After leaving Fort Henry to go round
to Donaldson, the boys began tohave some
hopes of having, one chance to exhibit
their metle before being discharged, and
when we Inn Jed three iniles below the
fort, they could scarcely wait for the mor
row, to march on the fort by land. Morn
ing came, and with it the order to narcb".
Hastily forming in a cornfield, we pro- j
ceeded to make the preparations for a j
half, when, from some cause, known enly
to the officers, we had to retrace our
steps to the boats. On the afternoon we
started again, and marched in regular
order until when within a mile or two of
the fort, a heavy firing was heard in the
direction cf the fort, supposed to be from
the gun boats. Every heart beat wildly
as we hurriedly made our way to the
scene of conflict. We marched into camp
close to the breast works of the fort with
out having any fight, as the officers tho't
it best to rest the men, for although it
was but three miles by water, they had
marched about eight miles: by land, and
were .naturaly supposed to be in no fight
ing order, though they were as willing to
fight then as any time.
On the way to the fort we were joined
by regiments at every crossroad all bound
for the same market. As we were going
up a very steep hill, my load would not
permit rne to travel very fast, consequent
ly I fell behind the regiment, and sat
down on a log for a moments rest. The
52d Ohio were just behind our regiment,
and I was watching them as they passed,
when my eye fell on a boy about sixteen
trudging up the hill with a large knap
sack and musket, whose face seemed
familiar, but as we see a great many re
semblances in the army, I did not pay
much attention to him until after he had
passed me and one of the men asked me
if I had "pegged, out?" ..This draw ibe
attention of thjg person I have just men
tioned, who glanced at me and said, "I'll
bet that's the feller that started to the
Peak with a'dog train." ' I jumped off
the log and shook Frank Munson's hand
as cordially as I would a brother's. He
talked with me a while, when I thought I
would catch up with the regiment, and
started ahead, when a rough faced weath
er beaten man, calling me by name, said
"How do you do ?" "I do not recollect of
ever seeing you before." "If you know
Frank you surely know his father." Sure
enough, there was that round face, but,
how changed ! He and Frank father
and son in the same cause, were as
cheerful as though seated around "the
old hearthstone in times of peace."
Our regiment and the52d Ohio fought
side by side, and Frank and his father
did as good work as any two men in the
Your humble servant wa3 "thar or thar

a musket instead of a kettle drum. Sar
geant E. F. Buckley was wounded in the
groin, but not severly. After we had re
pulsed the enemy, stray cannon balls and
six pound shells came Uncomfortably near
to "cur Louse," and as Lieut. Berger was
standing, with revolver in hand, waiting
for a sexesh to poke his head over the
hill, some unprincipled cuss fired a shell
directly at his mug. He saw the unwel
come visitor coming in time to evade it.
It sank into a bank a few yards ..behind,
but did not burst. Col. McCord picked
in up, when, socilkj the fuse, he dropped
it like a hot potato.
We made a little trip into Prof. Nixon's
native county, and took 6 or 7 of the rebel
pickets prisoner. The roads were awful
muddy, and on the way I thought "Par"
must have had rather soft mud under his
toe nails to be Tennessee mud.

Washington, April 6th.
It has been ascertained that the rebel
leaders are grievously disappointed and
disconcerted by the change of program
me in the disposition of the army of the
Potomac. They thought it was to be
withdrawn from this vicinity, and had ar
ranged a progammed for a bold dash
across the Totomac above - Washington
and a foray upon the capital through Mary
land. Gen. Jackson's command was to
lead this enterprise, to be supported by
Smith and Johnson's forces.
It was expected that the rebel sympa
thizers in Maryland would raise the stan
dard of revolt there, and aid the execu
tion cf the project by destroying railroad
bridges, thus leaving Washington isolated r
from reinforcements by Union troops.
Bat the rebel leaders reckoned without
their host, and. were taken by surprise at
finding General Banks within supporting
distance of General Shields when the at
tempt was made to execuie the hrsf part
of their programme. The repulse of
Jackson and the creation of two uew dc
pariments in Virginia, under coniandof
Generals Banks and McDowell, convince
them that no vulnerable point has been
left unprotected. The Maryland sympa
thizers who were emboldened to insolence
at the prospect cf this bold feat of the
rebel army have become disheartened
and are leaving by scores. A number
have been arrested in their attempt to
escape South, and others who wtre known
to have organized for the occasion, are
seeking a way Southward in small parties.
