Our Flag Forever
We have not the time nor the incli
nation, to dun personally, a large num
ber of persons who have unsettled ac
counts upon our books of several years
standing. We shall, therefore, from
day to day, without respect to persons,
place into the hands of a Justice for
collection, all accounts of over two
years standing. All those who wish
to save expense, will do well to give
us a call immediately.
Burnside Heard From.
How truly did Gen. McClellan re
mark in his address to the soldiers of
the Army of the Potomac, when he
said, " God smiles upon us I Victory
attends us yet !" By reference to our
war news of to-day, it will be seen that
General Burnside has won another glo
rious victory at Newbern, North Car
olina. The fight is said to have been
the most desperate of the war.—
Our soldiers acted like veterans, brave
ly facing and overcoming all obstacles
in their way. The rebels were very
strongly fortified for two miles along
the Nouse river by seige batteries,
which our gallant forces captured, one
after another, after several bloody
hand to hand contests. After their
'ammunition became exhausted, an or
der was given to charge bayonets,
which was heroically complied with,
the entire force rushing upon the ene
my, which compelled them to retreat.
In the precipitate flight of the enemy,
he left everything behind, and large
quantities of military stores of every
description fell into our possession.—
All this was accomplished without the
aid - of the naval fleet, as the fog was
so dense, that the fleet could not ope
rate in conjunction with the land force.
All is well, and we say three times
three and a tiger for the Burnside Ex
pedition. We have new cause to
praise the Lord, for he has again
shown his approval of our struggle for
i personal liberty and freedom, by
•crowning us with another victory,
which will cause every- patriot heart
to thrill with joy, and every chord to
vibrate with new energy in the holy
Work of crushing rebellion, mid forever
'blotting out treason from off the land
,of God's own chosen people.
THE REBELS are becoming heartily
sick of the situation in which they find
themselves at present. Driven like
sheep from every stronghold by the
Union forces as they advance, they
have become discouraged, disheartened
and demoralized. As our army of the
Potomac advance, they find nothing
but devastation and ruin. The flight
•,of the rebels fl.mu Manassas and Cen
treville wag evidently attended with
the greatest disorder and confusion,
And so hurriedly made, that they left
almost everything behind they could
not destroy or carry with them, and as
they proceeded on their journey south
ward, the terror must have increased
ten-fold, as our army pick up any
; amount of arms, overcoats, etc., etc.,
;as they penetrate the " sacred soil."—
The devastating hand of treason marks
fits way, and wherever it has been,ruin
-and desolation are left behind. Can
such a cause prosper? Our army is
hailed with delight by the Union men
; of the South as their deliverer from
what they consider worse than bond
age. Their homes and their firesides
desolated and profaned by a ruthless
and relentless foo, they have become
tired of the experiment of erecting a
new Government, and, with tears in
their eyes, and prayers on their lips,
,they embrace the Union soldier.
WHAT IT COST.--4t 110 W appears that
John Bull's attempt to " bully " us has
cost him a great deal more than was
at first supposed. Among the recent
items of English news is the following:
In the House of Commons, on the
17th inst., the supplementary estimates
for the naval and military expenditure
on the Trent affair, amounting in all
to £973,000, were moved and unani
mously agreed to. In American mon
ey that is $4,865,000.
• A is Alioucier that the English
people are taxed up to the eyelids,when
every little eccentricity costs .them so
dearly. It would be better for them
to ite'ep in a good /Amine, .and endeavor
to praetiee a cool philosophy. They
may save by it.

Is ANY man has gained notoriety in
the present struggle for freedom, it is
certainly, the arch-traitor and prince of
thieves, Hon."(?) John B. Floyd. Not
content with robbing the Government
that fostered and kept him from the
day he left his mother's knee, to cap
the whole, he takes a command, in the
position of a Brigadier General, in the
rebellious army, which position lie is
about as capable of filling as a monkey
is the position of President of the Uni
ted States; and, by the way, Floyd re
minds us as much of a monkey, as any
specimen of the genus limo we have
ever read of. Imitating the example
of others, be is as brave and chivalrous
as a hero until the hour of danger,
when, like a cowardly poltroon that he
is, he skulks off in the darkness, and
leaves his companions in guilt to take
care of themselves as best they can,
while he makes sure of No. 1. Not
content with stealing " himself away"
at Fort Donelson, he must needs write
a long report of his daring exploits and
personal bravery, and also take the
stump at Nashville and other rebel
rendezvous, and assure, in person, his
co-laborers in crime, what monstrous
military achievements he has accom
plished; for which imaginary services
the misguided dupes of the Southern
oligarchy applaud and hind him to the
skies. Jeff Davis, the President of the
so-called Southern Confederacy, look
ing at his distinguished (?) services in
another light, revokes or suspends his
military authority as Brigadier Gene
ral until a more satisfitetory account is
given of his exploits. Poor Floyd !
unhappy and unfortunate creature that
thou art. When will thy troubles have
an end in this world? Not until thou
last been hung higher than Haman,
and thousands of others like you, have
atoned for the bloody crimes which
are charged against you.
WHILE hotly and hastily pursuing
the enemy, we are suddenly brought
to a halt to consider who is to atone ,
for the rivers of blood that are made
to flow in the course of the rebellion.
It will certainly have to be atoned for,
and it rests upon the heads of the arch
traitors who first betrayed their mas
ters. While we claim it to be a neces
sity on our part, in order to save our
altars and our firesides from devasta
tion and ruin, the rebels have no plaus
ible pretext whatever, more than that
they sought the downfall of a nation
to better their own condition. Having
lost the confidence and respect of the
nation, they plot its overthrow, to once
more gain position and power, no mat
' ter at what cost of blood and treasure.
Such are the men who brought on and
control the rebellion; such are the
men who seek to make slaves of us all;
and with such men rests the murder
of hundreds and thousands of their fel
low human beings, slaughtered in the
heat of battle to satisfy - the selfish and
false ambition of an aristocratic oli
garchy. Already we imagine them
suffering all the pains of hell's hottest,
fiercest flames. They aro doomed to
a fiercer hell than was the rich man
who refused to give Lazarus the crumbs
that fell from his table.
WHEN "Lincoln's butchers" (as the
rebels call our soldiers) get after Jeff
Davis' sheep, they retreat, vamoose.

adopted as their National colors, in

The Military Bill.
On the 12th inst., the bill entitled
" An Act to provide for the adjudica
tion and payment of certain military
claims," was under consideration.
The 3d section was read as follows
SEC. 3. That the said board may also
have the power to examine and adju
dicate as aforesaid, the claims of all
citizens of this Commonwealth who
ltave been engaged in recruiting and
organizing the volunteer forces of this
State for the war, by authority, in
writing, from the Governor of this
State, or from the War department of
the United States, or from persons thus
duly authorized, according to their
designated rtu3k or position, for the
time in which they were thus actually
ougazed at the rate of persons per
formiug similar duties in the volunteer
.ervice of this Stap, butt only in pro
portion to the real servicesiondercd to
Mr. Scott moved to add at the cud
of the section the following:
cProvided, That no claims shall be
allowed or paid under tbhi act to any
officer who has been paid by the'Uni
tea States for the subsistence of men
recruited by him or under his authority,
until he shall have satisfied the hoard
that he has paid in full all the debts
contracted by him, in the name uf the
government, for the §uppovt of such
This amendment is designed to CO,V7
er a specific class of cases which I know
to exist. Encampments have been
formed under the authority of officers
who have been authorized by the War
department, and perhaps under the au
thority of the State—although of that
I am not certain. These officers in
command of the camp have gone on
and had men recruited and taken into
their encampments. They have con
tracted debts in the neighborhood for
the necessaries for the support of the
men. They have
claims to the United States Govern
ment for the subsistence of those men
at a certain rate per head, and those
claims have been allowed. The offi
cers under whose superintendence the
encampments were conducted, have re
ceived the pay from the Government
for the subsistence of' those men, while
the parties who have furnished the
bread and the meat and the potatoes
that the men have eaten, and the straw
upon which the men have lain, have
been unable to obtain their money.—
Those men, in some cases, are not yet
in the service of the United States, but
under this law, they will present their
claims to the accounting officers of the
State for recruiting expenses.
Such a ease has existed in my own
district; and it is because Of my know
ledge of the existence of that case, and
the supposition that there may be oth
er cases of a similar character, that
offer this amendment. We haa camp
established out in our country. We
were very glad to see it established
there; we welcomed it; but we would
have been better satisfied if it had
gained for itself a better reputation
than it did. When I came to this place
many of my constituents placed in my
hands, bills made ont against the Uni
ted States government for beef, for po
tatoes—yes, sir, for the very bread up
on which those men subsisted ; and I
was required to present them to the
gentleman having charge of the en
campment. I took them to Captain
Dodge, the United States officer ' sup
posing that they would be paid ; but I
there received the informntion in the
shape of an official document that the
subsistence of those men had been paid
to the commanding officer of that en
campment at the rate of forty cents
per head per day. The commanding
officer received this allowance for the
subsistence of those men ; yet the ne
cessary articles furnished by the peo
ple of the surrounding country have
not yet been paid for. Still, under this
law, as it stands, the commanding offi
cer of that encampment could go be
fore this tribunal and demand pay for
his services in recruiting men who
were in that encampment. It would
be wrong, it would be unjust, to per
mit the government thus to be imposed
upon. I trust this explanation will be
sufficient to secure the adoption of this

BOW LI NU GREEN,)raII2II 11, '63
I started from Louisville at 7 o'clock
this morning, and, alter having pro
ceeded about twenty miles, was start
ed from my scat by a screaming of
whistles, followed by a wining, bang,
crash The people all left the cars to
ascertain the cause of so much noise,
and found that our locomotive, with
the loss of smoke-stack and Drummond
light, lay snorting upon a baggage
train, having completely- demolished
the rear car, and forced the entire
train, except the locomotive, oft' the
track. In a half hour after, about fifty
men were at work upon the ruins, and
before one o'clock we were again " on
ward to Nashville."
The farms, or plantations, upon each
side of the railroad, as far as the land
is concerned, arc in fine condition, and
from Louisville to Nolin, a distance of
53 miles, the dwellings, out-houses, fen
ces, walls and other enclosures, etc..
etc., call to my mind the neatness of
New England farms; but after leaving
liunfordsville, although the land is re
markably fine, everything seems disor
dered and out of place; fences broken
down, walls tumbled over, out-houses
lopsided, and minor disarrangements
on every hand. I ventured a soliloquy
for the moment, actually forgetting
that the farther I progressed South
the more slave-labor was brought in
Words are inadequate to describe
the scene of destruction between Nun
fordsville and Bowling Green. The
work of demolishing everything valua
ble has been complete. Besides the
bridges, every railroad-station has
been burned or otherwise destroyed,
and property of men professing Union
sentiments has shared the same fate.—
At Cave City, thirty-one miles north
of Bowling Green, a splendid hotel,
and many other buildings, were burned
by order of Buckner.
I saw it stated in souse paper that
Buckner, while on his way to Fort
Warren, in conversation with sonic
persons, remarked that Floyd was a
coward and a poltroon. Let not the
loyal American people be led astray by
the oily words of this polished vandal.
Notwithstanding the supreme con
tempt universally entertained for the
thief Floyd, in the North, do not place
him in the position occupied by Buck
ner. I will now enumerate some of
the erimes'committed by him. lie has
been instrumental in driving from their
homes, along the route of the Louis.
ville and Nashville railroad, loyal and
disloyal men, their wives and children;
burning all the railroad depots and
bridges; destroying public buildings
and private residences indiscriminate
ly ; occupying school houses and
churches for barracks; stealing every
thing in the way of clothing, subsis
tence, fuel and money; tearing up the
track, and otherwise injuring one of
the most costly railways in the United
States. And yet this man, who has so
thoroughly devastated a substantial
portion of the State of Kentucky, has
tlic audacity to appear in a Christian
community, and denounce his fellow
villain as a coward. Buckner, you are
a bad man, and can never be forgiven
by the American people, or that por
tion of thc Atneriilin people who love
their country and their God.
The bridges and the critical places
along the railroad arc, guarded, day
and night, bY United States regulars.
Some eight or ten encampments are to
be seen between Louisville and Bowl
ing Green. There must be at least two
hundred laborers upon the road, and
it is mow almost wholly completed be
tween Louisville and Bowling Green.
The only danger to be apprchended is
in crossing the temporary bridge over
the Rolling Fork river.
We arrived at Bowling Green at
precisely half-past five o'clock, having
been ten and a half hours travelingll3
miles. It takes two days to go to
Nashville from Louisville, as the rail
road bridge at Bowling Green is de
stroyed, and there are but two engines
upon the Nashville portion of the road.
In company with four officers, I has
tened to the "business portion" of
Bowling Green to make arrangements
for the night. The only two or three
public places in the town were jammed,
and my associates and myself were
about giving up in despair, when we
were directed to the private boarding
house of a 3lrs. lless., who informed
us that her beds were all engaged, but
kindly permitted us to occupy her , par
lor, if we were willing to sleep upon the
floor. We accepted her offer, and, be
fore retiring, partook of a hearty re•
Bowling Green! I might, with un
questionable propriety, designate it the
city of the dead. From the moment
you arrive in the place, go where you
will, hundreds of graves attract you•
attention; and to use the language of
one of the gentlemen at the house of
Mr. Hess, had the distillers in the neigh
borhood, in the manufacturing of whis
ky, used a little more of their favorite
ingredient, strychnine, the number of
graves would have been almost incal
After leaving the cars we werecom
pelted to cross the Barron river by a
pontoon bridge. The railroad bridge
was blown up, and the turnpike bridge
burned, by General Hardee, acting un
der orders from General A. S. John
On the outskirts of the town are
many houses, stores, and other build
ings, without a sign of a fence, railing,
or door-steps, and in many eases the
weather-boards of the houses have been
torn off. In Main street the sight is
sickening indeed. Whole squares arc
represented by brick walls and chim
neys. In Nashville street the confla
gration must have been fearful. All
that remains in one square is a brick
wall about the size of a common door,
with a piece of tin hanging to it, with
the words—" Printing office up stairs?'
I glanced up, but couldn't - see it. The
destruction of the depot was an im
mense loss. The telegraph office, four
hotels, and many other valuable struc
tures, were consigned to the incen
diaries. On the square stands a large
house, like an oasis on the desert, every
thing around it having been entirely
consumed. This destruction, wanton
it is, was declared by Johnson to be
a military necessity. Subsequently
Gdh. Hardee issued a proclamation, in
which he denounced the house-burners.
and threatened to hang, without trial,
all who should fire, or attempt to fire,
a public or private building.
There must have been a large mon
ber of Confederate soldiers here, as
there are proofs that as many asthirty
regiments were encamped in the int
meliate vicinity, and on the beautiful
hills for miles around. Every tent asst
have been supplied with a chimney. as
they are all standhig, looking like so
many little ovens. Invariabry there is
connected with all the encampments a
graveyard. I am informed by good
authority that twenty-one men died out
of a single regiment in six days.
I cannot comprehend why this place
was evacuated by the rebels. There
are seven tremendous fbrtifications sit
uated upon the hills, all of which com
mand the Louisville and Nashville
railroad. The most formidable are
Port Beauregard, Port Buckner, Port
Maguire, and a monstrous fort upon
the hill about halt a mile above the
town. They all command the sur
roundif''r country. The latter fort was
the one I visited this evening, and I
cannot refrain from saying that I was
almost struck dumb with amazement.
The fortification was built under the
supervision of Engineer Sanderson.—
It is for the most part situated upon a
lime-stone ledge, and outside the regu
lar walls are two, three and four en
trenchments, breastworks, and rifle
pits. Part of the fort is made of sub
stantial earthworks, and part of cross
timbers ; inlaid with dirt and stone.—
It could have only been taken by shel
ling out the enemy. It would have
been as difficult to have scaled the walls
as it would be to ascend the Hudson
river highlands. The outside breast
works, rifle pits, and fortifications
proper, cover an area of nearly eighty
The reason assigned by the people
here for the hasty evacuation is, that
they were sadly in need of heavy ar
tillery, and that the capture of Fort
Donelson by ourforces outflanked them.
I have not seen a smiling counte
nance in Bowling Green. The very
earth looks gloomy. The stores and
dwellings are nearly all closed, and a
terrific and foreboding quiet prevails.

on their rmriments, in an attack on the
enemy's batteries at Newborn.
Front Major Johnson, \ h o was in
the fight, we gather the following in
teresting particulars of the battle.
Our troops, under General Burnside,
landed on Thursday evening near the
mouth of Swan Creek, on the west
side of the Sense river, fifteen miles
below Newborn. Owing to the dense
fogs, the naval vessels did not partici
pate in the fight. Early on Friday
morning the fight commenced. Our
troops advanced along the country
road running parallel with the Nemo
river, but a mile or two in the rear.
The road was skirted on the west side
by a railroad and a dense swamp. All
along the river side were a series of
batteries, which were taken by our
troops, one after another, after some
bloody hand to hand contests.
Our troops were divided into three
brigades, under the command of Gen's.
Benno, Foster and Parks.
We advanced gradually, the enemy
deserting their guns, until we reached
a line of earth works extending across
the road from the river to a swamp on
the west, a distance of some two miles.
These earthworks were very strong.
They were located about two miles
south of Newborn, and between there
and the city ran the Trent river. The
country road and the railroad passed
through these works, and crossed into
the city by bridges. In front of these
works the rebels had felled a large num
ber of trees, forming an almost impen
etrable abattis. Here the flying reb
els were rallied and made for a while
a desperate stand. Our brave fellows
fought until all their ammunition was
spent, when an order to charge bayo
nets was given, and the works were
finally taken at the point of the bayo
The enemy fled like fr'ghtened sheep,
leaving everything behind them. In
their retreat they burned the bridges
communicating with the town, over
both the county road and the railroad.
As they had trains of cars in their rear,
just across the bridges, they were of
course able to carry off their wounded

were attacked on Friday morning last.
They were defended by a force about
ten thousand strong, and having twen
ty-one gnus posted behindformidable
batteries over two miles long. Tbe
light was then most desperate of the
war. Our troops behaved with the
steadiness and courage of veterans, and
after nearly four hours hard fighting
drove the rebels out of all their posi
tions, captured three light batteries of
field artillery, forty-six heavy siege
guns, large stores of fixed amnion; Lion,
three thousand small arms and two
hundred prisoners, including one Col
onel, three Captains and four Lieuten
ants. The enemy left a large number
of dead on the field.
They escaped by ears to Goldsbor
ough' burning bridges over the Trent
and Clamont, and firing the city of
Newborn. No extensive damage was
done to the place. We lost about'one
hundred killed and four hundred woun

regiments. Rev. 0. N. Benton, killed;

Merritt, of the Twenty-third Massachu

are on their way home.
The loss of the enemy is not cer
tainly known, but must have been
pretty severe. Before our troops reach

another, which was deserted' before
they came up. It was in front of this

soldiers as cowards. Just as the battle
terminated, the fog lifted and enabled
our gunboats, which had been impa
tiently waiting for an opportunity to
participate in the fight, to come up the
river, and our troops were furnished
with means of transportation across
the Trent river to Newborn. The reb
