We were cheered one day last week by a
friendly ,visit from Mrs. Grundy's sister, who,
"ufter, entertaining us fora half hour with some
tad-bits , of a private nature, graciously handed
us the following for publication, suggesting its

Some sixteen years ago, when we were mit

Soon after we receited a summons to appear
before aeertain 'Squire in F—. The day
arrived, bright and sunshiny and we started
with alight heart, a horse, a buggy. a'driver, a
lawyer and an armful of law books. ,Irpon our
arrival at F— we found to our surprise that
the suit was brought by the father of the youth.
We proved by the young man himself that the
sale W/113 all right, and that the book was worth
the money. After some hesitation the 'Squire
decided that as the purehaser'was not quite
twenty-one years of age, the sale was thereforo

minors without their parents consent and ap

Horrible Butchery of Our Tioops.
CAIRO, ILL., April 14.--On Tuesday' morn
ing Porrest, with some 6,000 men, attacked
Fort'Pillow. Soon after the attack Forrest
sent a flag of truce demanding the surrender of
the, fort and garrison, in the meanwhile dispo
sing his force so as to gain an advantage.
Maj. Booth, of the 3d Tennessee United States
Heavy Artillery, formerly the Ist AlabainaCav
airy (colored), refused to receive the flag of
truce and fighting was resumed.
Afterwards a second flag clone in, which was
also refused. Both flags gave the rebels the
advantage of gaining new positions.
The battle was kept up till 3 o'clock P. M.,
when• Maj. Booth was Stilled and Maj.-Bradford
took command. The rebels had come in swarms
-over our troops, compelling them to surrender
Immediately upon the surrender, there en
sued a scene which utterly baffles description.
Up to that time comparatively few of our men
were killed, but, insatiate as fiends and blood
'thirsty as devils incarnate, the Confederates
commenced an indiscriminate butchery of the
whites and blacks including those of both colors
who had been previously wounded.'
The dead and wounded negroes "were piled
in heaps and burned, and several citizens Who
joined our forces for protection, were killed or
• t
wounded. -
The black soldiers. becoming -demoralized,
rushed to the rear, their white, officers having
thrown down their arms. l3oth white and
Mail were bayonetted, shot or sabred, and even
ad bodies were horribly mutilated. Children
of seven or eight years of age, and several negro
women were killed in colblood. Soldiers un
able to speak, from their wounds, were shot dead
and their bodies 'rolled down the hanks into the

Capt. Posten, Lieut. Lyon, of the 13th Tennes
see, and Capt. Young, of the 24th Missouri,
Acting Provost Marshal, were taken prisoners.
Maj. Bradford was also taken, but is said to have
escaped. It is feared, however, that t he haS
been _killed.
The steamer Platte Valley came up about 3,
o'clock. Shwas -hailed by the rebels under a
flag of truce and her men sent ashore to bury
the dead and take aboard such of the wounded
as the rebels had allowed to live. Irifty-seven ,
were taken aboard ; including seven or eight'
colored men., Eight of them died on the way,
up. The steamer arrived here this evening and
was immediately sent to the Mound City hospi

Among the wounded of the colored troops are

carried off, including two 111-pound parrotte
