Ithe Fort Pillow Butchery.
A correspondent of the New Orleans
True Delta describes an interview with
the rebel General Forrest, which took
place recently at Madison, Mississippi.
His testimony, raised with much gaseon
ade,fully sustains the accusations against
him. The writer,after some' preliminary
questions, asked :
,"Now that yOu have time, general, do
you think ph will dyer put upon ,paper
the. true account of the Fort Pillow affair?
"Well," said he, “the Yankees ought
to know; they sent down their best men
to investigate the affair."
"But are' we to believe their . report,
General ?" ' •\.
"Yei; if we are le believe anything a
nigger says; when I went into the. war,
I meant to fight.. Fighting means kill
ing. I have lost twenty nine horses in
and have killed a man; each time.
t. pie other day I wasp a horse aheid but
at Selma they surrounded me and I kill
ed twos—jumped my horse over' a one
horse wagon, and got away." I began to
think I had some idea of the man at last.
Be continued "illy Proyost Marshal's
book will show that I have ,taken thirty
one thousand prisoners during the war.
At Fort Pillow I sent in a flag of truce
,and demanded an unconditional surrender
or I would not answer for my men. This
they refused. I Fent, them another note
giving them one hour to determine. This
they refused. I could see the river beats
loaded' with troops. They sent back,ask;
intr for an hour more. .I gave them twenty
minutes. sat ou my horse durin the
whole time. The Fort was filled with
niggers, and deserter's from our army;
men who lived side by side witli'my men.
I waited five Minufes after the time, and
then blew the bugle for the charge. In
twenty minutes' my men were over the
works, and the firing had ceased. The
citizens and yankees bad broken in the
beads of whiskey and lager 'bier barrels,
and were all drunk. They kept up firing
all the time, as they went down the' hill.
Hundreds of thetamished to the river and
tried to swim' to the gunboats, and my
men shot them down. The Mississippi
river was red with their blood for three
hundred yards. During all' this, their
flag was still flying, and I rushed over
the works and cut the halyards and let it
down, and than stopped the fight. Many
of the Yankees were in tents,in front,and
they' were in their way, as they concealed
my men, and some of them Se them on
on fire. If any were burned to death it
was-in these tents. They have a' living
witness in Captain Young, their Quarter
master, who is still alive,and I. will leave
it to any prisoner- I have ever taken if I
have not treated them well."
“To filing or Not to litang.”
The' Tribizne replies to some points
made by Mr: A..J.'Smith of Danville, Pa.,
in a communication on the subject of ex-1
' , coating certain leaders, of rebellion, and
"Austria killed many t l liousand - ofturt.

Taylor, or Kirby 6mitli,aud she bad pro
ceeded to try, couvief,seutence and hang
them, she .woo:4 have been execrated as
perjured and infamous to the end of time.
To this effe'et, the verdict of History is
emphatic - tit - id ioverwheltuing. (See what
it says of the exehution of 'Marshal Ney
under the Bourbons in 1815 Yet he was
precisely such a forsworn traitor as Rob.
err E. Lee, and not half so well shielded
by terms of capitulation)"
- Christendom must make a vast differ
ence between a rebellion of opposed
Hungarian's strivihr , . for indipsodence,
and nationality and the attempt of an
over fed arristoieracy to destroy a free
country for the purpose of establishinu
the worst sort of-despotisna. The south
ern rebellion was not a sudden uprising
against oppression, it was conspiracy
against .Freedom. •
The leader's in this conspiracy are re
sponsible for deeds of cruelty . to unarmed
} and helpless persons that might make a
savage blush under his dark skin,and are
worse than robbers and pandits, and with
the record of a fair trial and conviction
ibefore them "ill Christendom can never
cry `shatue'Lltl the American government
fur meeting out.just punishment to them.
It does not follow that every rebel should
be executed, or even tried. The amnes
ty proelarnations meet the argument if
argument it is,of o the.Tribune, by,pardon
ing whole clasies at once, and open a
door] for filing reasons in'arrest of judge
ment in other cages: ‘ IVe6 never , could
see the sense of the cry,so dinmon,lhang
all or pardon all." There is no sense in
The Tribune itself has said that the
surrender of Lee only gave force to his
parole and safety under it during the
war, and at the end of the war •ended
their character of prisoners of war, and
turned them over to the civil power.—
That may be an error. We would have
the government ~,break no promises
posittre or implied made by our generals.
But Jeff. Davis cannot have the benefit
of the surrender of his generals as he did
not surrender. It will be an outrage on
humanity to permit him to escape if on
a fair vial ho shall be of tree•

The following interesting jaddition ,to
the political history of the tame we find
in "Occasional's" letter to The:Phila

"A feiv days ago a gentleman rho

therefore, demanded of Cobh, to know if

At the mouth of Deer Creek on the

and are now producing oil. The largest

others 10 and 15 bbls. Fifteen miles above
these wells on the Clarion, a well is now
being pumped which is producin g daily
15 bbls. of oil. None .of these wells

and as lucid as ordinary refined petroleum

It is a very Orions fact that the three I
men in America l who form the triumvirate I
of apostacy and treason were all detected
by means of their boot. Benedict Ar- 1
nold's treason Was hidden in Andre's '
boots. Aaron nurr, escaping in a dis
guise which would have probably proved
successful, was! betrayed by the elegant
cut of his boot; which was out of keepinir,
with the rough homespun suit in which
he was making 'his flight. Jeff. Davis
falls mto the same trap, and discovers
,himself to his Captors by neglecting this
most ordinary. preeM.oion. When the
Pretender was flying through the High
lands for his life,he set an example to our
American Pretender by donning a suit
of Lady Kimzsburgb's clothes,in order to
pass out of her t house unobserved, resum
in, his male attire as scion as he had put
a few miles between himselland his last
biding place. But he changed his boots
first, and his cast off pair,ragged and torn
with his wanderings through swamps and
hills, were treasure for many
i .years by
