RUINATION OF SOUTHERN PLANTERS.
The Washington Republican says that a state
ment has recently been going the rounds of the
press, that "a majority of the sugar planters of
Louisiana are Union men at heart." We have
never heard before that these gentlemen bad
"hearts,"any and are still Somewhat incredu
lous as to the fact We kn6w, however., that
they had pockets, and. have doubted that suffi
cient pinching in that quarter itvould,4incline
them once more to "keep step to the music of
the Union." No class of men in this country
has been more pampered. by nationallegadation,
and it was in truth principally because they had
waxed fat under good treatment, that they
kicked against. their . benefactors. They are
now gettinglean.againi, aryl If;they, ifick atall
it Is without vigor. It
_mayftven be true that
a majority of, them are now "Union men." If
not, they soon wil t , be.
Sugar, which liesin hogsheads for miles on
the levees of New Orleans, is quoted at from
one and a half to two and a half cents per
pound, and this in the same currency in which
the planters:pay one:dollar per bushel forlndi
an corn, and forty-five dollars per barrel-tor
The.prople in Swamis. are divided into blacks,

Col. Jackson, of the 9th Pennsylvania regi

horse while he advanced toward the enemy.
Seeing two rebels who, had discharged their
muskets approaching him, the boy drew his
carbine and threatened to shoot them if . they
did ndt surrender at once. This they did, and
marched before him to the camp.
The act of the negro was clearly a violation
of the Constitution according to the "conserva
tive" press. What right had that nigger to
have,a carbine , and threaten to shoot,
rebels ? How dare be take prisoners ? We ex
pect to see the "conservative" Times and Jour
nal demand that this shooting darkey shall be
driven from our. lines for infracting the . Con
stitution. Negroes must only be allowed to
fight on the side of the rebels and shoot Union

a little margin to legislative extravagancies.
We regret to say that considerable evidence
of disloyalty to the Confederate government
has been manifested in some of the counties in
West Tennessee, since the call upon the militia
was made, one county (Carroll) having gone so
far, we learn, as positively toilefuse 30 submit
to the detail. In Wrakly county, also, (Em.
Etheridge's county,) we learn there was serious
trouble on Monday last, which led to the feax
that some difficulty would occur there ;_ but we
understand that matters were settled peaceably,
and without bloodshed, which was one. time
In McNair' , county—John V. Wright's—how
ever, the disaffection seems to have reached its
higtiest point, as we see from the West Tennessee
Whig, that it was found necessary to send troops
into that county to arrest some of the authori
ties ; and to send detachotents'of soldiers into
some 'ot the other counties for the same Fir
