Owing to a dely in getting paper

to Jelay the publication of our paper this

Destination or the Nebraska Sec
Last week we noticed the fact of
this Regiment being sent to Minneso
ta, and aUo stated that a pledge had
been gircn the soldiers, when they
enlisted, that they were designed for
home protection. Some of our frien'ds
hereabouts are disposed to slightly
censure us fcr the article alluded to ;
think there is "not now, and never
wa?, even a shadow of danger, from
Indians in this part of Nebraska ;"
that, "perhaps Omahn, and may be a
few interested individual?, would be
rouch pleased to have the'troops kept
here to draw from Government, dur
ing the year, 1,000,000" but that
"any article, or any argument having
a tendency to prevent the troops from
going where they will be most use to
Government, is more than half trea
son," &'c. All very good ! But what's
the use of sending them to Minnesota ?
Does any body suppose there is now
any danger there? Sojfar as this
Territory is concerned, there may be
no danger from Indians in this portion,
but Government has always'found it
necessary to keep a force station at
the forts, to protect overland travel to
the mines, and the Pacific coast.
Why not our own citizens fill those
posts, and thus liberate, soldiers from
other States ? By doing so they will
be as valuable to Government as at
any other'place, and at the same time
gave more money in the Territory.
; But there are other foes far more
formidabe than Indians. Missouri is
swarming with Bushwhackers and
horse-thieves. There can be no peace '
in that State, or States and Territo
ries bordering on it, without military
iorce stationed in various portions of
From a private letter we received
to-day from St. Jo we are informed
there are "fears of a grand npris
ing through Northern Missouri and
Southern Iowa, to take place some
time next month, when the K. G. C.'s
and secessionists are to prepare the
way for Gen. Price." This anticipa
ted outbreak would never occur
if there were soldiers near the border.
It will probably never occur unless
Price should be able to make a rade
to the Missouri River. Should that
happen, we have no doubt the Secesh
even in Atchison county, and in
Kansas and Nebraska, would be as
rampant as they were two years ago.
For the Regiment to be sent South
as some suggest, would be the height
of folly. They would scarcely have
time to march to Dixie until their
time of enlistment woUld expire.
Mr. Barrett, Register of the Land
Office at this place, has shown us a letter
from the General Land Office at Wash
ington, in whkh he is informed that un
der the provisions of the Homestead Law,
either by purchase, or from the Pre-emption
Law, can abandon it and acquire a
homestead under the recent Law. This
decision is a very important one for the

The Richmond Whig does not like
the rebel tax bill, by which 150,000,
000 are to be raised this year. It
savs the taxes are to be paid by r.
portion only of the States. The seven
Atlantic and Gulf states will have to
bear the principal portiop, and largo
tracts of them are overrun by the
Federal enemy, and can pay nothing.
It thinks it only decent that the rep
resentatives of Kentucky, Missouri,
and Tennessee should not vote on the
bill, as their States will contribute
little or nothing. The Whig adds:
The narrow belt first adverted to is
to pay all, and at the same time feed
the army. With Major Ruffin's or
the War Department's sale of prices
of agricultural products, the thing will
be simply impossible, except at such a
sacrifice of property by the farmers,
for the benefit of speculators and ex
tortioners, as will be intolerable.'

On the 25th, at 7 P. M., General
McNeil telegraphed from Cape Girar
deau that he expected an attack in a
few hours by two approaching forces,
on from the West, under Marmaduke,
and one from the south, 8,00 strong,
At 3:20 Sunday Morning, 26th,Ahe
"Have received a flag of truce, with
a summons to surrender in half an
hour, signed by .Major-General Step
ling Price. Declined of course."
At nine A. M., 2Gth, the General
telegraphs that he had his command
under arms all night, and that every
thing was ready when the enemy
should open the ball. No gunboats
or reinforcements were yet in sight,
lie was ready to feel of the enemy.
All the women and children, who dei
sired to go, were Bent over to the Il
linois shore, and were supplied with
tents. Large quantities of stores
were also transferred to the opposite
side of the river. If the enemy shod
get into town, the General intended
to concentrate his force in one or two
forts, and "knock it about their ears."
At ten minutes to eleven o'clock
yesterday afternoon,' the telegraph
operator at Jcnesborough Station, Il
linois, twelve mileu east of Cape Gi
rardeau, commenced sending a series
of messages, as follows:
"10:50 A. jr. Firing is heard from

"He will be well cared for in that
direction. I have not vet used the

yourself no concern about Cape GN
Still more satisfactory was the dis
patch received by Gen. Davidson, five
hour latdr, from Gen. McNeal, con
taining the following:
"Cape Girardeau, April 26, 9:30
p. m. We have repulsed the enemy
with severe loss. Our loss is less than

MuRrnEEsnoRO, April 24.-rA patrol
of 12 men of the 1st Oeio, was attacked
yesterdap at Jobson'sford, on stone river
by thirty rebel cavalry. After a brisk
fight the latter fled, leaving several
wounded. The loss on our side was no
thing. Wheeler's rebel division is re
ported at Bard's Hills, twenty five miles
towards Lebanon. An attack on the
latter place is expected. Indications are
that Gen. Reynolds purged the country
of rebels, Scouts reports the mountains

Chicago, April 25. A late Atlanta
Intelligencer, believes that Rosecrans is
to be reinforced and that the greBt battle
of the the war will soon come off be
tween Chattanooga. The Jackson Ap
peal says, Grant's army is evidently
being removed, Its most .probable des
tination is the Cumberland and Tenne
ssee. Enough it says, will be left be
hind to amuse ou. forces at Vicksburg,
while the main body moves rapidly to the
assistance of Rosecrans: The Daiy
Mississippian, in a leader on the same
subject, says from a careful surrey of the
situation, which the movements of the
federals always present, the conviction
has been gradually forced upon our minds
that our enemy are preparing a most tre
mendeous force perhaps not less than
three hundred thousand, in middle Ten
nessee, to hurl upon Gen. Johnson with
the hope of annihilating' his army and
thus opening the way to the Mississippi
valley and the heart of the confederacy.
The Appeal says another hypothesis is
that the federal forces are to be concen
trated at Memphis and more rapidly into
Mississippi. It infers this to be the case
from recent stringent order issued by the
federal authorities in Memphis.
Av Tullahoma correspondent of the
Chttanooga rebel says, from present iudi
cations w may hazard the prediction
that thercampaign in middle Tennessee
will soori open in earnest. In pursuance
of a recent order from Bragg, all tnts
and extra baggage are being sent to the
rjar, reserving only three " flies'' to ev
ery hundred men.
I Cairo, April 2d. Vicksburg dates of

shell-entered, a depot building and ex
ploded, leveling the greater portion to

shots in return, most of which struck the
iron casraents but glanced off whitout do
ing any: injury. They evidently think
their position is pregnable. For the last
tivo days they have maintained a becom
ing reticence. " Guns are now being
placed tj command the court house.
Vhere are reports that a . division has been
sent to Davis, plantation, opposite New
Carthage, to oppose the landing of our

voted a success. Nothing has been heard
from the fleet which ran the blockade a
few dayu since. . 1

els are reported making important
movements on our front, materially
changing the situation whether in re
ply to ours on McMinnville, or that
the rebels are weary waiting for U3 to
ndvanco is not known. It is known
that Bragg has been reinforced by
one brigade from Mobile and Missis
sippi. A regiment from Vicksburg
has been sent back from Chattanooga.
A force has reinforced Manchester to
strengthen the rebel's right. John
son is reported to have moved his
headquarters to Shelbyville. Cheat
hams division is at Gay's Gap, twelve
miles from Murfreesboro, on the Shel
byville and Trienne road. Two bri
gades are at Billbuckle while a third
force is said to have been on the Doo
little Pike some days. It is believed
in rebel camps that if Rosecrans docs
not advance Bragg would attack.
One authority says Bragg has 75,000
men. , -
A late Richmond Euquirer speak
ing of officers in South Carolina, says

moving, and it is supposed their inten
tion is to make a raid in the vicinity
of Cossawatchei, probably to attempt
to destroy the railroad between Char
leston and Savannah.
' New York, April 20, The Wash
ington Intelligencer of Tuesday morn

On Monday morning heavy masses of

The steamer Empire from Orleans
the 20th, via Key West the 25th, has

large amount of stores, cotton, am
munition, etc. About five hundred
rebel prisoners are arriving daily at
New Orleans. The steamer Terry
from Newbern, the 26th, has arrived.
All is quiet at Newbern. The troops
are strengthening the fortifications at
Newbern and Washington. No for

for some time. Neill's forces are at
Greenfield and further north. Our
troops at Elizabeth City and Wind
field have been withdrawn. Wash

A fort is building at the latter place
which will permit the withdrawal of
our regiments now there for opera
The Post thinks the news received
that Banks has taken possession of a
large amount of rebel property indi
cates that a part of our forces have
reached Alexandria, La., where the
rebels had a large quantity of stores
and boats. It is not impossible, it
says, that they have all been captured.
Cairo, April 20, via Memphis.
We have news of the capture of Tus
cumbia. The place was held by the
rebel Col. Chalmers, whose forces have
been very troublesome lately in the
vicinity, of the Tennessee river. Last
Tuesday Gen. Dodge attacked him and
a severe engagement ensued, Chal
mers stoutly contested the ground.
He was, however, compelled to give
way and fall back. The federal loss
is stated at 100. . The rebel loss is not
given. General Dodge is now in pos
session f of Tuscumbia. Rebel com
munication by that route is cut off".

and loitering around camp-fires two
small howitzers loaded with musket
balls, hauled by hand to within thirty
yards of them, were simultaneously
discharged, . killing and ' wounding
a large i number. 'At the same time

of their horses, camp equippage and
several thousand dollars worth of
iolen property were captured, harly
io next morning Gen.: Vandevtr ad
vanced and saw the main body of the
enemy in full retreat. The enemy
followed, keeping up a continual fire
on their rear. At two o'clock Mc
Neil joined Vandever and the com
bined force continued in pursuit.
Firing was heard alllhe afternoon and
it is hardly possible that the enemy
can escape with the. booty. - Marma
duke's command consists of Missouri-ans,-
Arkansasan, and Texans. They
left Powhattan, Ark., the 5th, osten
sibly to occupy Pilot Know and Cape
Girardeau as a base of operations for
Gen. Price's campaign this summer,
but really for plunder.
The 1st Nebraska Infimtry did the
most fighting in . the rebel attack on
Cape. Girardeau, and behaved with
great gallantry. They were posted in
the woods, about a mile from town,
and kept Marmaduke's whole force in
check, while, the guns from the fort
played upon them, doing considerable
execution. The rebbel batteries did
no injury to the town.

on Saturday before a large audienca of
spectators, who crowded the galeries.
The gaeat feature of the day was the
presentation of the report of the com
mittee on the state of the nation, by its
chairman, Rev. Alfred Cookman. The
document, which'was lengthly, recited, by
a preamble and ten resolutions, that the
rebellion was unparalleled in its wicked
ness, and continued to imperil the exis
tence of the republic; that our nation is
a chosen instrument to extend the king
dom of Christ ; that it is the solemn duty
of erery citizen to rally to the support
of the Union cause ; that the conference
renew their vows of unconditional loyalty
to the United States enjoined alike by
the Bible and the Book of .Discipline ;
that in the present critical condition of
public affairs there should be exercised
great prudence and caution; that those
who oppose every warlike meas ire under
the pretext or discriminating between
the Adminstration and the Government
are guilty of overt treason ; that slavery
is incompatible with Christianity and re
publican institutions; that the conference
concur in the righteousness of the Presi
dent's proclamation of freedom to the
blacks; that there was reason for gratitude
for the maintenance of the public credit ;
and that the members would appropriate

ly interrupted by loud applause. The
resolutions which denounced slavery, and
"treason" at the North, created almost a

other modes of applause to which a coun

Rev. J. P, Newman informed the con
ference that Gen. Wool would have been
present, but that he had received a mes
sage from Washington about a great
piece of rebel rascality in New York,
and he wanted to put it down. He knew
they would be satisfied with that explan
ation, especially if Gen. Wool should put
down at once the Copperheads at the
North. Great applause.
The Hon. Morse F. Odell, in response
to repealed calls, avowed his affection
for the Methodist Episcopal Church, and
declared that it had rendered valuable
assistance to the Government in prosecu
ting the war. Heheld that the Admin

to dig into such fellows. Laughter and

approved of the resolutions, but he did
not like the mode of approbation adopted

Rev. Mr. Foster said that although he
had been a friend to the South by edu
cation and disposition, he was in f ivor of
the war before a gun was fired, ap
plause and proclaimed that we should
fire two guns for each of the rebels' one.
Applause. ,He was ready to give glo
ry to God for our defeats av the first Bull
Ron and second Bull Run, for he believ
ed they were still able to cary on the
war ; but he knew that if -they succeeded,
slavery might be saved. The South hat
ed the Yankees, they despised, scorned,
and held them in ridicule ; and if a South
ern man should say a Yankee had no
soul the Yankee would be afraid to say
he had. Applause, and laughter..
He hoped the war would continue till
that hellish develish idea was whipped
out of the people of the Southern States;
and to accomplish that object he did not
care if the war went on for one, two or
ten years. Applause.
Rev. Mr. Foster, recently from New
Orleans, said that while there the ladies
insulted every Yankee they ; met in the
streets sometimes crossing on the other
side to show their contempt. Their com
mon cry was : "Look out for your pock
ets, here's Yankees coming." He want
ed that feeling whipped out of the South
ern people by shot and shell.
Rev. J. B. Wakeley desired to inform
the Conference that the proper way to
treat a Copperhead was to stamp their
heels on him. The speaker stamped his
feet violently on the floor, which brought
hown the house. Rev. Mr. Fox remark
ing: 'Brother Wakely, did you make a
hole m the floor that time ?
The yeas and nays were then taken
on the resolutions matim. and ananima
ted - scene followed. Nearly all the
members called rose and voted in their
favor; some cried "yea" in a tone which
made it sound like "nay," and were re
questioned, when they cried, "yes, with
all my heart ."
Two clergymen who had supported the
resolutions in favor of the Union said
they did not disaprove of those introduc-
tmnnr th a c 1 1 ire f? nnoohnn TKa rn
which each of them uttered, seemed to
disconsert the conference considearble,
and a sene of thev greatest excitement
followed. The names of the clergy who
thus expressed themselves are Rr. Mr.
Cattell, presiding elder ofthe RhiDebeck
district, and Rev. Mr. Seileck. of West
Camp, Ulster, county. N. Y.
Loud cries were raised for Mr.
Cattell to explain himself and show hi
"loyalty," and several members pressed
arround him.- At length he appeared
near the pulpit and declined to make a
speech. Some ministere declared he
should be excused, while others exclaim
ed: "Bring him up," "put the screws to
him," ''he's not loyal," and other kinder
Mr. Cattell said he had been dragged
up before them to explain his views, and
if they would force him to speak he would
do so. He and all jiis family were from
the Puritan stock, and were borne in
Massachusetts, and he loved the Union.
But he would tell them that he would
not swallow their resolutions on slavery.
Hisses Ten years since he was a loyal
man, when those who now questioned
his loyalty were the reverse, and when
they did all to oppose and embaras the
Government. Loud hisses. The Ad
ministration was supported by the whole
North; they were not embarassed, as
was said in the report. Cries of No, no,
"false, and loud hisses. He had a right
to his opinion, and he would so express
himself. Cries of "No," "sit dowd."
ne would support tne uovernment in
every just constitutional measure to car
ry on the war, but he would never give
up his right to free speech. Loud hisses.
When this stormy ecclesiastical scene
subsided, it was arranged that the ab
sentees should be called to vote on the
resolutions this morning, when a sim
ilar scene may be expected. -'
Hot? Gen. Grander Treats tiie Eebcs
A correspondent of the Philadelphia
Pma.writinj from Franklin, Tenn.. thus
explains General Granger's method of
treating loyal and disloyal people:
"There are but a half doxed Union
families in Franklin, oui of a population
of one thousand five hundred inhabitants.
The Union people are put to no incon
veniences, and are .allowed to go any
where within our lines, while the Secess
ionists, male and female, (and especially
the ladies, who generally get all they
desire from our commanders of posts,)
are deprived of all privileges, and for
bidden to leave the town, upon the pen-,
alty of being arrested as a spy. When
persons apply to the General for passes
he dues not ask them if they will take
the oath ,or if they ar6 willing toacknol-
edgd the Federal Government, but in-
. t i ,
quires, ave you ajways oeen a loyal
subject of the United Srates? He admits
of but one answer, prefaced by no ifs and
ands. If they answer 'yes.' he makes
them prove their loyalty. If they answer
ro, he informs them that he considers
that none but loyal people are entitled j
to privileges, and grants. none; and all
the talking, smiles and the taking of oaths-
