They also tool a quantity of bam and middlings, which the) carried on board the barges. There have beer several men arrested here In the last month, bui nothing was done with them " From other letters to the same party we learr that tbere are many strong Union men there, o] whom several are very large slaveholders, but a.1] expression of Union sentiments Is suppressed.
