Outrage in Missouri. lion. J. II. Brown, of Texas, in his army newspaper, the War Bulletin, published in the camp of McCulloch's division, gives the following samples of Federal outrages in Missouri : Will tbe God of 7tj of Washington, Sumter, Marion and Moultrie vouchsafe His blessing to the infidel ruffians who are now ravaging Missouri with fire and sword, stealing like Murrelhtes, murdering unarmed men, brutally insulting helpless women, and performing deeds of blood and violence known only to savage life ? Persons farther South can form no adequate idea of thousand upon thousand of outrages committed in Missouri. We conld not believe it until we came np here and traveled in that State. We have had minute facts in hundreds of cases detailed to us by ladies of the highest respectability. Many of them exiles from home with their families, are now in this town and vicinity-One of tbem, with whom we now board, was publicly cursed by a procession of over two hundred Southern born torfes in the streets of Sprinslield, last spring, for wearing a secession apron. One was cursed and otherwise insulted for seeking from a tory captain the recovery of a favorite animal stolen from ber by his tory company. Her aged father (a native too of Ohio, but a patriot) waa seized and carried with jeers and scoffs by her door, witbeut permission to see her, tbough she was very sick and they resided in different counties. His life was only spared by her almost supernatural warnings of vengeance to the base and cowardly wretch, Capt Wright. An Illinois colonel shook hia fist ra tbe face of a refined young lady in Springfield, saying, ,"Gd d you! we have stolen your niggers and you can't help yourselves !" To tell ladies they were " d d sesesh b-tbfV' waa common among the Date troops. fyi'AB
