The following letters found in the pockets of a Confederate aoldier killed in tba lata battle at Mumfordsville, Ky., tell the whole story of the distress and rain brought upon the South by the rebellion.

F Loftia, Eu1 ?My Dear Sir and Brother: lour last letter of the 6th instant, is to hand, and contents noted. I also received one a few days ago written in New Orleans, and one before that in Houston, Texas; also one very lengthy and intereating one, mailed at Bastrop, Texas; all of which I was much pleased to receive. The latter I answered immediately, aiid sent to Bastrop, as you directed, or rather I procured the services of your little neice, Sarah Lofton, to write for me in fact, which was much better done, I presume. That letter is now waiting for you at Bastrop. I sm glad to lesrn that your health is improving, and that you are in fine spirits, and hope you will continue to improve in health and military skill until the last infernal Yank'f is slaughtered. It is here as there, every , k thing presents a war appearance. You request me in your last to give you all the news in the old North State I can't do that. Still there is but little of any importance here. There ^ have irone and ready to go fr?m Duplin, about JgM 700 volunteers, many of which you were acquainted with. L. W. Hodges has been in since June last, until about a month ago. Jle resigcud his commission and came home on 1 M account of his health. He was third lieuten"f *0 Cart. Denson's company. J. C. M Lofton, J. i>. Shine, L. T. Hicks, and several others, are also in that company?they are and have been staying at Fortd Caswell and Johnson, below Wilmington There are a good many troops gathering round there on the sea coast. You have doubtless learned that Cape Hatteras was captured by the vaytdal.i some time in August last, and about 760 of our men taken prisoners. They have been sent to New York, where thev will probably stay for some time yet. O. M. Roberts b^s made up a comnany of Rate troops, and has been sent to North Washington, N. C., that is near Cape Hatteras. There are several of ysur acquaintances in his company?some of the Jones's, Price's, Winder's, Ae. Well, it is Sunday morning, and I must close this letter in time to go to church, as you know I am a regular attendant; but our msin preacher. Mr Spunt, is in the army, he is chaplain in the 10th regiment of X. C. volunteers. Well, to the point, this leaves me and family all in tolerable geod health, and oar family connection are generally well, and our grapes have just given out, but I hare a jug full of the juice ready fer you when you { ? come along. I have been looking for you every day for two weeks, until I ree d your last letter. I hope you will get a chance soon, and call in. Well, now to what is nearest home, you state that you have those notes you held against me, and think of sending them to Joel or Qilas to keep, and wish to know if that arrangement will suit me Of course it is not for me to say what disposition you should make of them; but I would prefer for you to keep them to any one else, for times and people are so curious, if they had them I do not know whose hands they might fall into; for up to this time there has been many peeple who would be pleased to get hold of such netes on me, if the acknowledgment of the receipt of them is what you want, I will here say tnat I owe you to 3 |900, one due January, 1860, ona '61, and one '62. I also have collected some small amount from Jno. D. Shine, which I informed you of some time back, and charge mysalf to you with the amount. I could have easily paid the first note last winter, and I wish to God I had of done it, as things has turned round ^s they One reason I wish you to keep them is, I think when I can see you I caomake arrangements to get them up with other paper or property, and be satisfaction to you. The paper I could then cellect for yeu as soon as times would admit, but there is no chsnce to do anything now. If this will suit you, on receipt of this you ean take the notes, datas, and smounts of them, and make a receipt?such a one as you woald take?that would be good against me, and this you oan keep until the return. I will assign and forward according to your instructions. I wish you would wright at least once a week, or oftenar, if you ean, and let us know what is going on. Yours, as ever, until death, L. R. Lorn* St. Mabt'?, Texas, Nov. 25, 1861. F. Lofttn, Esa ,?Dear Sir: Your favor of Oct. 28 is at haaa this evening, and found myself and family in good health. I received your first from Bowling Qreen, and answered it three weeks ago I received your letter from Alleton with Baily's draft, and handed it over to him. Baily has not paid any money, and I don't Aink he will for somo time. Prank, it is the hardest times that ever was known in this country. I have not collected any money, and have no idea when I will. In fact, there is no money in this country. We have no goods here, and no chance to get any if wa had the money to get them with. Hobby has sbippad a part of his stock to Houston. He had about 190 kegs of nails; be sold them for $12 60 per keg. He has givezfup Mape's bouse, and is keeping in Cottingham'a old store. Ms pee offered him his house for $12 per month, and he woald not give it. The house is standing idle. There is over two-thirds of the houses in this plaee idle, and several others talking of leaving. I think it doubtful whether the lodgaswill give more than $4 or $& par month-for the room next year. I have heard several of them talk, and that seems to be their notion. The lodge will be some $300 in debt at the end of the yaar, and what they will do I oan't tall. Hobby getsCottingham's store and a bed room in his h >use for $5 per month. I want you to write me as soon as you get this, and fat me know what I can have tha lower stoiy of this bouse for, until times change I am not able to pay much rent. I A have nothing to sell, or very little, and don't pretend to keep opan only on mail days. I can get a house very cheap, that would answer my purpose; but I am willing to stay in this _ house until lean rent it, and pay you in proportion to the times and the business that is doing. I want you to lat me know what rent I must pay, and I will give it ap any time it can be rented, or pay as much rent a^fny one else I merely make this request so'Cfcuy know the least that will satisfy yoa. I have no news that would interest. War is all the talk. Our eoonty is throws into battalion, and John H. Wood is elected major. I have not been abla to gat money to pew ap In New Orleans.

WASHINGTON, D C . TUESDAY, JANUARY 7, 1862. N?. 2,770 llmma || |, I,, ,|,,| i Horticultural Memoranda. Very few if any of the horticultural journals eaual the Gardener's Monthly for the amount of praotical matter which it presents to it* reader*. It makes no attempts to Mar among the elonda, but like the plant*, fruits ana flowers of whioh it treats, dwells upon the surface of the earth, and sires as just what we wantef common every day facts. In a late number, we fiod so much of an interesting and useful character, that we are induced to glean a portion and present it in a oondensed form. PLARTS III BAT WINDOWS. The very neat praetioe of making small plant cases in bay windows (which ear readers will find handsomely figured on p. 50 of the Illustratad Annual Register for 1861,) is recommended by the editor, who states that a common oil lamp, is quite sufficient, with the usual window shutters, to keep out frost during the night or extra severe weather, while the regular day temperature of the room will suffice for that time. This is worth remembering by those who are deferred from attempting to keep house plants by the fear of their being frosen, or of the labor of maintaining a proper temperature by fire heat. DWARF APPLES ON WILD CRAB. An Illinois correspondent recommends the wild American crab (Fyrus coronaria) as an excellent hardy stock to work the apple upon, . he thinks that with low worked beads, some varieties would form dwarfs equal to those worked on the Doacain, perhaps superior. He has also tried the peach on the dwarf flowering almond, and they have made handsome shrublike treas the year after budding, fall of fruit bads, fie does net expeet them to last long. A FRUIT FARM. A. Thompson, ot Delaware, Ohio, (known to all admirers of the Delaware grape,) has visited the extensive fruit farm of J. Knox, Pittsburgh, and gives us some description. The t&rm oocapiesone hundred acres, fifty of which are in strawberries in the highest state of cultivation, aad the rest is oeoupied with young plantations of grapes, raspberries, fruit tree?, sc. Every rod receives as (rood and thorough culture as a good garden. Tne ground between the rows of strawberries is kept perfectly clear of weeds. During the past season, the hands employed in picking and sending fruit to market numbered at times as high as three hundred a day. and the berries were sent to the various cities between New York and Detroit. Every new sort is tested, and its value proved, and over a hundred sorts hav? hoec tried. The Triumph de Oacd is preferred to I all others. Wilson, Jenny Lind, Ar, are I largely cultivated The rows are two and a| half feet apart, and some rows more than 1 000 I feet in length. Dels for raising plants are I entirely distinct from all the rest all the run- I ners being permitted to grow. The thorough I hand culture pursued is expensive, but is found I to pay best. The three favorite grapes are Delaxoare, I Concord. and Hartford Prolific. Concord I vines, two years planted, bore their first crop, | and averaged a dollar each from the sale of the I fruit, which sold from 20 to 15 cents per pound I in the Pittsburg market, while Isabellas and I Catawbas (unripe of course,) were a drug at six I to eight cent*. A row of eleven vines, 130 feet I long, four years planted, and seven feet high, I was covered with magnificent clusters, the 11 result of excellent culture and pruning ; and I an acre of sueh vine* as mlimited by the I owner, would yield a profit of at least one I thousand dollars in a single season. The Hart- I j ford Prolific, in consequence of its earliness, I old for 25 cents per pound, although the I , quality is moderate. - I ( 1 CATXRPILLARS. I | A quoted writer aays, "I took a pan large I i and fiat, filled it with burning charcoal, and I i placed it under a tree?then added a pint of I rosin, and two ounces of sulphur. The fumes I scattered the worms ." WINTER GARDENS WITHOUT GLASS. The editor proposes to bed out for winter a I properly arranged assemblage of hardy dwarf I evergreens, of which there are now many I species?to keep them in boxes, and to remove I them in spring, for flowering plants. Of course, I a reserve ground mast be devoted to keeping I them through summer. We may add to this I suggestion, that if shrubs bearing scarlet ber- I ries (such as the Eaonmys, Celastrus, Pyra- I cantha, Ac.,) growing on the ground, could be I occasionally intermingled with the foliage of I the dark evergreens, the appearanoe would be I very pleasing.
