Tri-Weekly News (Newspaper) - September 13, 1862, Houston, Texas Vol. XX.l HOUSTON, SATURDAY, SEPT. 18, 1862. I ICHAEDSOH & CO, Proprietors. . . -**- Houston, Saturday, Sept. 13, 18C2. News Item*. abo ISO* MK. V�ia*kdimum.-The following ca l.da.ed Dayton, Ohio, 1st Inst., and addressed to �lerinett; appears in theN. *, Herald : i ;r: I thank you foe your former courtesies, and �n srry to trouble you agsln. Due persistent Sy-inj. dema ds continual contradiction. a statement in the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch, in vour Tuesday's Issue, that I was "arretted," and ttut I was implicated In "treasonable plots,' or in any other JbSug "dirtoval," is an Imoudent fabrication of tha anon.vmpus sooundrel -who telegraphed It. Ho* long t� the telegraph to be prostituted to such Infamous falsehoods 1 � '. C. L. VALLANDIGHAM. ^ We uotiea oorrespundenc* bet*-ctn the Union men.i ^v of Maryland and Federtl officers on the subject of *' contraband*, the former complaining that their ne- I * ?roes have been taken from them "ad made to serve nth* federal army. One man. Mr. Theo. A MUier ays be has always been a good union man a? can he fairy pfWd-that he has 9ttn been couriered ul-.ra In his dtvoilon to the nnloaj - , He was told in reply that%e eouM have his negroes If ihay desired tG return, and would do �*> wlth'pui compulsion, ihrats or ' resilience. Mr. Miller re; Joins'hat ho U unwilling to coosulthis negroes on a matter of that kind. And be. asks ''Are wc of the border States to be taxed to furnish rations to our own nsgroes ? If officers of the army cant <;aich slavci to return them to their lawful owners, how is it they can cath them for themselves or the government 1 General Winder's tariff on fori), meal and long forage Is having the effect that previous experience warranted us In expecting from special and invidious tariffs. Heal cannot now be had in this market fbr love nor money, and great in consequence is the'suf ferlng amongst the poor and inconvenience to the wralthy. The millers have stopped grinding corn and such grocers as had large supplies uf meal on hand, for which they paid two dollars a hushel, aro feedirg It to their cows and horses in preference to losing a hall dollar a bushel ty retailing it at the tariff price. There wllloe no meal in Richmond until, the tariff ti repealed or made general., it is not reasonable to suppose that the farmer can sell corn for one dollar and fifty cents, when they have, to lay, seventy Ave dollars for a sack of salt and ten dollnrB for a pair of negro b.ro&aps. Thcutioveisfrom the Richmond Examiner. The question is whether an arbitrary tariff.of pi hc same offence now, should be mada to suffer in the same way. It would be a righteous penalty. The Richmond Dlsnatch learn* that Gen Van Horn estimates that there were 31 0 000 shot and ahellH thrown hv the Yankees, in the late bombardment of Viekshurg. We have been fnformed that twenty two deserters from Lincoln's army came nto Btauulon on Wtdnts day last and surrendered themselves to the commandant of f at post. They represented themseWes as from Northwestern Virginia, and said tiny were tired of fighting asrainst thuir friends of the East.- Jtiehmond DitpatcA. A t-rnble collision occurred during last We.dnes-day night on the Poteiaao ilver The steamers Geo. Peabod.v and West Point citne In collision, and the former was sunk. She was loaded with troops,-ho, havinii recovered from sickness were on their way to rcj >ln th-lr regiment. .Seventy six soula perish *roonu tho.-e dawned were three lidies and the Child of one of them. The todies were wives nf ofUoeri In Gen. Rurnsid*'* command. snd h tn to blood." 8lno the order for a draft, Lincoln ha* "put his foot down" mors firmly, and his depotlsm is more grinding than ever. Ills myrmidons aie as like tigers against all persons suspected of the slightest i'tanatbjr with the "rebellion." We hear of ladles arreted "for cheering (or Jeff. Davis" men "for shoa'liig for the Southern Confederacy," shoemakers '�lor mislo.' slippers with the Confederate fl�K on tl-eei.'' and partita "far speaking in a mannei which ann iys loyal persons around them !" Such Is a picture if the tyranny now at the North. Among-thepHsoners sent hack under the late cartel are many who-; have bi^so liarshlyjtfeftted hy Tederats- Biattbey have' had | sent to the hospital.

A dispitch to, the Cincinnati Gazette says President tlncolri has distinctly iodicnted his determination to resign, if he'cannot give satisfaction to the party "that elected nim. _\.We shall not be surprised'-at bin resignation any German paper in New York, called the "Kew Yorker" has the following attlole: ' "We have now the guarantee that this civil war wilt ne.a con'esf of'thirty yi-sm* duration. Tho order or the War Minister, pul.liBtwd yesterday, has 'suddepty' placed us In a nilitary State that other oeuotrles have laken centuries to rrach. We have enjoyed1 the frilits of rreeddm for eighty years ; but now see what the black intolerant spirit of New Bng-ladd has done for us.
