A lute Yankee paper coa tain? tbe following:

insurrectionary districts within the United States: !

•" Evans, James W. Tirockmorton and George XV.
The above is a specimen of genuine Yankee
meanness. Lemuel D. Evans has been with them
for eighteen months, and would not dare show his .
tory, traitorous face in Texas, unless protected by a
foreign army of Yankees. Paschal is at Austin."
and has taken the oath to sustain the Confederate
♦States. J. have nothing to say of him. not knowing
"what his real status is.
But of the foul outrage perpetrated upon Capi
•Jame.* W. Throckmorton, whose name has been nsed
by "Lineóla, I have a word to say, lest some might
be deceived by it. It is evident his name was fur-
nished Lincoln by t-ome renegade, as a puuisment
.upon him, for having acted as a patriot in this war.

"Was ndt'prepared to advocate secession when the
'question was before the people of Texas. He op-
posed it with such reasons as controlled his judg-
ment; but always took the ground that if hip State,
by a direct Vote, decided to go out, be would stand
by her. And n ,bly did be keep his pledge. Early
in the spring of 1861, as Lieut. Colonel oí Col. W.
•C. Young's regiment, he aided in driving the feder-
al troops from Forts Cobb, Washita and Arbuckle.
Soon afterwards be became Captain of a splendid
company, and went into Stone's 6th Texas Cavalry.
He performed gallant service in Missouri fast fall on
scouting duty, and on the 2Gtb of December led his
•company with distinguished gallantry at the buttle
oí Chustcnallah, in which his horse was wounded
und.u* him. He left a sick bed on the Arkansas
river, against the wish of his Colonel and Surgeon,
to lead his men in the campaign which culmiu ued
in the battle of Elk Horn. Throughout that brief
period of cold, snow and storm, and in that bloody
battle, Capt. Throckmorton bore himself as a true
soldier, a gallant officer and a pure patriot. Thence
he marched to Corinth, and only temporarily left
the army when his failing health rendered it abso-
Since his return home, he has shown in various
ways known to the writer, though perhaps not to
the public, an unabated zoal in our righeous cause.
Nor is it doubted that bad he foreseen the iron des-
potism, utter recklessness and damnable policy of
Lincoln's government, he would have been as un-
compromising a secessionist from the beginning as
any in the State. Many able and good men hoped
for a time that the storm would piss away without
-degradation to the South ; but stood ready to fight
;to the death in defence of our liberty. Of this num-
ber was Capt. James W. Throckmorton, whose es-
cutcheon is far brighter than many who advocated
secession, but have done nothing to sustain our cause

Augusta, August 6.—Tbe Charleston papers of
this morning contain a telegraphic dispatch from
Savannah, dated the 5th, which says the steamer
Lodona, Capt Luckie, from Xas au, 31sfc, after en-

up the river towards Richmond. The Confederates
All the Confederate prisoners from the East have
returned here. The political prisoners remain in
Fort Yvarren still.
The returned prisoners say that the North has
given up all hope of success, and prosecute the war
only from-pride aud revenge. Recruiting proved
a dead failure. It is conceded the dratt is the only
remedy, and the Lincoln government is afraid to
resort to tfjat expedient. Many gvinoatliizers with
