THE DAILY REBEL.
MONDAY EVE NINO, JUNK 27, 18o4. J
Wi are satisfied that an A nay Surgeon who
writes from the field, mistakes in supposing that
tha Rebel's correspondent either was, or intended
to ksy njfftuirt to the Surgeons of the Army of
Tennessee. If we had believed so, we never would
bare admitted htm atricttif es npou the abase of
do branch of the service for which we have a higher
. . f . t.
or more sincere regard than for the Surgeons. ,
We have chaneed to beper.on.1 witnesses of their
dev,..o to duty, their h.gh-tonod benevolence j
tn.lj,,...iVii-.,il;l;1,rM. there intelligent apprccia- j
tiouof their own obligations to ibe country and ;
its soldiery, and their ca-pnestioncd patriotism. ;
We are glad to kaow that there are few exceptions ; two passenger, coaches wore destroyed by',
to this classification. Yet abuses may cit, f fire. The captured soldiers were forced t j
without including a whole class, cither of ' Sur- j carry rails and kind!.! the flames which cm

to some extent. Not only officers, hut many citi

doubt pot, too often participated in consuming the
supplies collected for the sick and .wounded. The
remarks of Marshall" were designed for correc

legitimate effect in tb is way.
Aa Appeal from the Army.

who hld corn, is earnestly called to the nical of j

grave nd lportat one, and speaks not only to ;

bavo gaJaed by three long years of strifo and car

ports for our morning's edition. It is stated that
the wire was ba-Ly ' damaged between Petersburg
and Walrion, for a distance of forty miles. We snp

The Loutavilla Journnl of tlie Utb gives an !
interesting description of the uncertainty of j
railroad traveling in Kentucky during the !
prewnce ol "J. Margin": j
From persons who were passengers on the i
cars and eye witnesses t- the whose i.tfiur, !
we have learned the full detail of the cnj j
tare. When about half a mile this side of I
! Smithfidd the train was thrown violently !
from the track by the previous removal of
several rails. A roller of carbine and pis
tol shuts were discharged into the cars at i
the fame time. A number of .passengers I
were aboard, and in nil about twenty s -1- !.
diecs. but six of whom were armed. The i
other were stragglers, being teturned to j
their regiment, iio sudden and in expected i
was the attack on the train that every liody j
lout ontrol of themselves, mid in a perfect i
Mate of alarm, surrenderel without the
slightest resistance. The guerilla band mini- (
bered ten man, and they claimed to be sol
diers of (General ."Jinn Morgan's command.
They were armed with revolvers and car
bine, and nsids from thoir citizen dros,
present, d the appearance of soldier.
Immediately after the surrender the arms !
were taken from the Federal soldiers mid
broltcn br pieces. The chief then adminis
tered to them an oath, requiring them to sup
