“Captain English’s company—It gave us pleasure, yesterday, to notice the alacrity with which the members of the Nashville Quitman Light Artillery came forward to enlist with Captain English. The company is now respectable in numbers, and is increasing daily. It gratifies every true Southron to know, that in Mississippi the Conscript Law is almost abortive. We scarcely want it. Nearly every man able to should a musket will at once do so, now that the time has come for action. Fill up the Artillery Company, and let Capt. English go forth with a strong, well  equipped, and effective  corps. Men are needed now, and none should hold back and be liable for to conscription.”

“Terrible Fight Between Three Rebel Regiments”—Under this Caption the Washington Republican of March 27th has the following first class narrative:

An officer of our army, just returned from Manassas, called last evening and gave us an interesting account of his visit to Manassas and the battle-field of Bul Run. A farmer, residing near Centreville, told him that in January last a number of regiments were quartered near his house, among them on from Kentucky, and when the time of their enlistment expired, they unanimously resolved to return home, and accordingly stack their arms and were preparing to start, when their further progress was arrested by the appearance of an Alabama and Tennessee regiment, who were ordered to reduce the Kentuckians to submission, and compel them to remain. The Kentuckians seized their arms, and a desperate fight ensured, in which many were slain on both sides, and their bodies were buried where they fell, the graves being yet visible. From this spot the mutineers retreated a short distance, threw down their arms, and each drawing his bowie-knife, mad a desperate charge upon the two regiment. The fight was terrific, in which more than a hundred killed, and they, too, were buried upon the field of slaughter.

At last the brave Kentuckians were subdued. The battle-field was shown to our informant by the farmer who witnessed the fearful contest. In traversing the field he discovered a large bowie-knife, which doubtless, had been used in this fearful fray.”
