Graphic Statement by an Eye-Witness—The Bebels gain an Entrance under a Flag of Truce—Union Soldiers shot down in Cold Blood, and hunted by Bloodhounds — \egrois and White Men burned and bur ied ulire. . From The Missouri Democrat, 22d. r.uwara u. Menton, a citizen, resident of Fort Pillow, who was present at the inhuman massacrehy the Rebel troops under Forrest,at Fort Pillow, was examined at Department Headquarters on Tuesday by Major Bond, A. I). C. The testimony was taken by William Thorpe, Esq., phonographic reporter, ol this city, and is as follows: I was born In Waltham, Vermont. Question. Where have you resided last? Answer. I was in Missouri, engaged in fur nishing beef to the Government troops on the North Missouri road until a year ago last July. I then went down to Fort Pillow, ami have been there ever since. Q. What was your busiuess there ? A^ 1 owned 21.") acres of the fort, bordering e river, and the very land we (ought on. 1 was putting in a hundred acres of cotton just outside of the fortifications, which was my principal business. Q. You lived outside the fort? A. Yes, Sir; 1 slept there. I was iu the fort every day. I was only about a mile from the landing—not a mile from the fortifi cations. ARRIVAL OF FORREST. Q. Just say wlicu you saw Forrest’s men— about tlie day, the time of day, and what you did? A. On Tuesday morning, the 12th of this month, I was awakened by about 5 o’clock, or •» 1-2 o clock, by a little darkey l»oy, wliocatne into my room aud says, “O, Mr. Benton, all of Forrest's men have coins, aud they are just going iuto the fort to take it — what will I do? ' I got out of bed and looked out of the window^ toward the fort and saw about 300 or 400 of Forrest’s men drawn up in line, and some one was making a speech to them which was answered by cheering. They chee;ed and then the pickets flrei I put some things in tny valise aud starteW'or the fort iu my round about way. and got in by running the pick ets, about (i o’clock, and went immediately to Major Booth and asked for a gun, and took my stand with the soldiers inside the breast works, where I remained aud shot at every person of Forrest’s meu that 1 could get a chance—firing 48 shots in all—uutil the (lag of truce was sent in. SHAMEFUL COSMCCT INI IKK A FLAIi OF TRCC'K. Q. What was the time of day it caine in? A. It came in about 2o’clock; I should thiuk 1 12 or 2 o’clock in the afternoon. Q. Had they made any attack then? A. Oh, yes, Sir. Q. Mad they tried to carry the fort by storm and been repulsed ? A. Oh, yes, Sir. At one time the Confeder ate troops had all disappeared. Q. Wc-rc 401) all there were ? A. Those were all I saw there. This was when they first made their appearance when 1 first saw this 400. After getting into the fort we saw more than 1,000 coining iu at dif ferent passes, and the sharp-shooters were sta tioned on every hill on every side of us, ex cept the river side. Q. Do you recollect how many attacks they made to carry the Fort before the Hag of truce caine in ? A. They fired twice. It is not proper to be called an attack. Q. I)id they use artillery ? A. Yes, Sir. They could not hurt us with that. They shot at the guuboat. Q. \\ hen the flag of truce came iu did they make any disposition of their troops around the Fort there? A. Yes, Sir. After the flag of truce was seut And the tiring ceased, they came up on all sides to within ten yards of the very em bankment that screened us. Q. While the flag of truce was waiting? A. Ves, Sir; more especially the northern side, just under the hank looking toward Coal aiccn. Q. How long was that Hag inside our lines? A. One hour was the time — I suppose it was all of an hour. <j. Do you kuow the nature of it? A. It was for an unconditional surreuder. It was reluscd by Major Booth? A. By Major Bradford—yes, Sir — Major Booth had been killed. He asked time to consult with the gunboats, and dually re turned, answered that there were none of Hawkin'* men there, and he never would sur render. Q. Didn't Major Bradford make any protest against the troops coming up uuder the llag in that way? A. I don’t know. Sir. Q. When the flag went back, did they com mence (1 ring again? A. Yes, sir. Q. Kept it up for how long? A. They commenced firing again, hut the firing didn’t last llfteeii miuutes. Up to this time there had not been twenty killed on our side. STRENGTH OK THE GARRISON. Q. What was the strength of the garri son ? A. Five hundred and eighty, I think, just. Q. llow many of these were negroes? A. About three hundred and eighty—near ly lour hundred; I don’t kuow exactly ta a man. Q. How many citizens beside yourself? A. Win. W. Cutler,ol Chicago, aud a young man by the name of lioblnson; he was a soldier, but iu citizens clothes, and got ofi* ou that plea. HOW THE FORT WAS CAPTLRKU. Q. The second flag that came in—about how Jong after the first? A. Well, there was no second llag of truce, except the one; there was no firing in the interim. Q. Was there any firing while the first was in ? A. No, Sir ; not a single shot was fired on either side. After the flag of truce had been rejected, or the surrender rejected, they were so close to the Fort that about d.uoo just sprung right in, and the whole garrison threw down their arms at once. The bigger portion of the darkies jumped down the. hank toward the Mississippi River without any arms at all, and were followed by Forrest's men, aud shut indiscriminately, black aud white, with hand kerchiefs held over them in a great number of instances—as many as fifty, I should think. MURDERING THE I'ltlSONEUN. Q. Did you see any of these persons formed jn line and shot down ? A. Yes, Sir. Q. How man; ? A. They were collected, at least, I should think, live or six different times. Q. How long a line? A. Well, it was more in a collection than it was properly in a straight liue: there was a line probably as long as this room—about 30 or 35 feet. Q. These lines were scattered by rebel shots several times? A. Yes, Sir. Q. These men were unarmed ? A. Unarmed; unarms of auy description, and held up both hands, begging for quar ter. i,i. Were you putin the liue? A. No, Sir, I was not; it was attempted to put me in line, but I clung to a man who tried p) shoot me, and 1 caught his guu and prevented him, and he took my money from me—some seventy dollars—and ordered me into liue, raising his guu to strike me; and as I came to the line, the Captain made a feint to strike mo with his sword, and told me to give him my pocket-hook, which I did, but, as he turned to put in others, I sprung away and clung close to the man that had llrst token my money; 1 said to him that he had taken . all the money, and he must keep me from be ing shot like a dog. as 1 was a citizen and had nothing to do with the fight; he abused me in every way by had language, saying that we had fought them like devils, and tried to kill aH»of Forrest's men, until we came to the back stores, where he gave me a soldier's coat, and told me to wait a moment until he could step in and steal his share: as soouas 1 was left, 1 took some clothing, a saddle, a blanket, and a halter that were there, and started out of the fort as one of Forrest’s men; on the way I saw three persons shot—mulattoes aud blacks—shot down singly, lh cold blood; I succeeded in getting over the fortifications, and hid under fallen timber, where I remained until dark; after dark I attempted to go toward Ilatcliie Kiver bottom, but the fallen limber being so had 1 got lost and wandered near the Pass No. 2, leading out of the fort inside of it, where I could see all, where I laid until the next day, about 2 o'clock; / /tent'd /[fly-one of /ico shots fired sinyly at different time* tcilhin Ike fort duriny that time, and st reams ami cheers, IILOODHOI'XDS OX THE TRAIL. Afeout 2 o clock the dogs were getting so close to me that 1 knew they were on ray u »»v. n. Ij. Wliat do you mcau by “ the dogs ?” A. Huntiug out people everywhere. They have dogs. i). They had bloodhounds ? A. t es, Sir. I left the most of my clothing and hastened down a ravine in the limber, till i came to the Coal Creek bottom, some mile and a half, ami swam across. 1 finally succeeded in getting to the Island; I had to swim across the river aud a bayou; that is all 1 saw. ’ BURNING THEIR PRISONERS. 1 was there at the fort two days after the battle, and saw the remains of burnt persons; helped to bury one of the dead that I saw shot in cold blood, lying right where he was left, aud saw many of them, white and black, all buried together, and a number three days af terward not buried. Q. How many did you sec shot in this way? A. 1 should think probably about 200. if. It was an indiscriminate butjherv, was it’.’ A. Yes, Sir. There were about 1.1 or 20. Ail lay close in a pile, huddling close togeth er, shot after they were wounded, WOUNDED SOLDIERS SHOT BEGGING FOB QUARTER. (J- Some while soldiers wore shot after they were wounded? A. Yes, Sir, with the hospital flag flying ami they holding white haudkerchiels over their heads. I saw at least ten soldiers shot individually, with white handkerchiefs over their heads, Ttsu) sore off pieces of their shirts—anything they could get. Q. You say these men were bliot in hospital, with flag flying? A. Yes, Sir, lying right down under it— not up walkiug at all. Kvery man lying near me was killed—lyiug close to me ami on ine. Two lay under, because they kept piling right up on top close under the bank. It was just down under the brow of the hill. A great many lying in the water were shot Trees tiiat were laying one end in the water and the other on the, shore they would just go over on the other side of these and hide, and the ltebcls would go over aud shoot them. Ij. Your citizens’ clothes saved you? A. Yes, Sir. i told them 1 had nothing to do with them. They robbed every citizen, and took oil all their clothing. Q. How much did they take from you? A. Seventy dollars. Q. Yon say you were robbed twice? A. Yes; once by the Captain of the com pany, and once by the private. I carry iny money in my vest pocket always, and had my pocket-book in my pocket with notes in it. Q. That was what you gave to the Captain, wasn’t it? A. Y’es, Sir. Q. And seveuly dollars in money to the soldier ? A. Yes, Sir;he asked, “(live me your mon ey,” and tlie other asked for the pocket-book. A SYMPATHIZER TREED BY DOGS. Ij. You say they had bloodhounds; did you see any of them ? A. Yes, Sir; and not only I, but others, saw them. One other—Mr. Jones—was treed by them, and stayed there a long time. <J. What Jones was that? A. I don’t knaw his given name. He lives on Island No. 3-1. I can find out his name.— He is not any too good a Union man, hut he is rather Southern in his feelings. tj. State about Bradford's death—when lie was shot, and what was done. Was he woun ded before the surrender? A. No, Sir, but it was reported by very trustworthy persons that Bradford w»s shot and hung near Covington, in Hatchie Uiver bottom. <J. Who told you this ’.’ A. This same Jones, and there were some darkies carne ou to the gunboat and said that. Darkey evidence is very correct there. You might not think it worth while to take the evidence, but it is a great deal more to be re lied upon than the Southern evidence there.— I may state that I was inquired after by a IfiflTA lllimtuar r>f nflt.iowc sn.l it .... . .1.1 a L.. a they would hang inc on a llag pole there. Q. What for? A. For the lact that I employed Govern ment darkies from Col. Phillips, at Memphis. Q. Ou your plantation ? A. \cs, Sir, and they shot ail my horses un fit for cavalry. 8AVAOIC TBKATMKN'T 01 NEUItOES. Q. Did they shoot your darkles? A. 1 understand they did, and burned them all; I understand they took one yellow wo man ; and two or three boys escaped that I tried to take to the fort with me in the morn ing to help fight; the balance, a darkey, whose name I do uot know, said they were killed and burned in the house. G. You didn’t go back there, then? A. 1 didn t go back there; that is only what i" told me ; it was told to persons that were hid right near, and I saw iiersous bury the hotlies alter they were burned. Q. Where? A. in the fort, Sir. *.*■ ltumed iu the house in connection with the fort buildings ? A. Yes, Sir; and out on timber, there was a large numliet of the burned in the building, but they had been buried the day before. i). You say there were 5S0 men, you tliiuk, in the lort? A. Yes, Sir. Q. How many do you suppose escaped ? A. Well, 1 know there were more than a hundred; as they marched out there surroun ded by the otltur troops, 1 would not think there were 50 of them. NEC,HOES nUltlED ALIVE. 1 here are five darkies in Cairo hospitals who were buried alive. Two of them have died since they got there. Did you see any ol those men buried alive ? A. No, 1 didn’t; but they are facts that can lie easily proved by the darkies themselves, and those who saw it done, aud saw the Ouar termaeter burned too.
