Roes trial took place at the Court House on last Saturday afternoon, for the stabbing of Mr. D. M. Johnson. Daring the trial some interesting things took place, that caused much laughter among the spectators. After the lawyers got through the cue wu submitted to a jury, who, a short time after brought iu a verdict of guilty. Roe not being able to give bond wu placed in jail f w safe keeping, until the next term ef the Circuit Court. The way of the transgressor is hard. Drafting. -ri From all parte of the country we receive news of the most encouraging nature. The Presidents call for six hundred thousand troops is meeting with great success, and in many ef the Statea their quota hu been raised and seme companies rejected.; We think it altogether probable that a draft will not he required in anyef the States. The time fur drafting has been changed to the 1st of September. This gives ample time to thou who wish to snlist in the army of the Union, to aid in crushing ont the rebellion, and to terminate this bloody conflict. Come forward, freemen, and help defend your country and your national honor, by auisting to put a stop to ths rebellion, and that we may again have peace in our land. But a few days will have passed hence bofers we will have an immenu army in the field. The most extensive army perhaps ever organised in the world, battling agaiut trsuon and oppression, and for the restoration of the Federal Union. We are fighting for the Union, the Constitution and tbs enforcement of the laws, and for the eternal annihilation of the rebel confederacy. . The. arch-conspirators Davis, Toombs, Yancey and others wUl soon be forced to bite the dust, and the rebellion must he brought to a speedy termination. In a few days our ar mine will commeocs marching further South, and u they advance the rebels will be compelled to retreat, disperse, or surrender to our mighty forces. Nothing wu ever mere certainly fore' shadowed in future events, than the down fall of the rebel government and its leaden. They are doomed to perish and to sink into iniignificeucc. Their day hu gone by, which, in a few weeks will be seen. One of the most effective armies will encircle the confines of rebeldom and put the coupiraton to flight. From .all appearances now our country will, ere long, be at peace. Then will we again move on in our greatness and might, and show to the world that we have a republican government, and dare and will maintain it with our hearts blood. Then will the flag of cur forefathers triumphantly wavs over the land of the free and the home of the brave. Emancipated. Twenty-one negroes, the former slaves of Willis Horde and Thomu Gardiner, ef St. Louis county, were, on Thursiy morning emancipated by the Frovoet Marshal General of SL Louis. The negroes had given evidence of importance concerning rebel movements, and were owned by men whose disloyalty had been fully proved. Under the recent ut of Congress they accordingly became freemen. Our secession friends can clearly see now what may be their fate, u the Government does net intend that the Confiscation Act shall remain a dead letter upon the records, but that it will be strictly enforced, without ifs or huts, ud it is but right that it should be. They have got to succomb and abide by the laws of the eountiy. A traitors or sympathiser hu no right to protection whatever, al though they think otherwise. There is no use of diddle-daddling with them any long, for it is but sheer noNense to do so. If this plan had been adopted and put into force months ago, wo would have been much better off to-day. The traitor and sympathiser will be watched and punished for their uts and deeds hereafter. We think it but right that they should be. The Rebels at Dallas. It is reported here that the notorious rebel Jeffries and sixty men marched into Dallu on lut Monday morning at daybreak, and surrounded the houses in which a company of State Militia were encamped, taking Captain Green and nearly all his men, they were all released wwever, after taking the oath, except Captain Green, who is held u n prisoner- No other particulars are reported. The It Genevieve Flaindealer. This secession paper, published at St. Genevieve, Mo., hu been suppressed by the Federal authorities. Charles A. Weber, Esq., our Trovest Marshal, took possession of ths offlee ou Friday lut. Military AxrisY Joseph Warren wu arrested on lut Thursday, by order ef the Provost Marshal, but wu afterwards releuod on parole, to report himself once a week. 60mmuntatin. ' Writtn for tbs fwTjTiU Union. .Our Country Changed. What gnat changes an wrought in the souse of time! What vicissitudes and varied scenes an witnessed by man, u he floats along the current ef life! What revolutions, what convulsions, what gigantic civil contests among a glorious, happy and tranquil people can a few yean bring forth. But yesterday and America might have stood against the world ; now none so poor to do her reverence! Not quite so. Then an thousands yet who are willing to sacrifice their hecatombs of human lives at ths shrine of liberty. But a few yean ago and the Americans wen the happiest people on the face of the globe. Tbeehords of love and friendship distended from one end to the other of the Continent. The sun of peace beamed fnm the heavons in all its bright effulgence and spendor. Aid Has hss sot bffua to orvrthrsw ThoM palscst, and piles, stupendous, Of which tbs very miss art trtiuudous. We wen then embarked upon the old ship of State, that had carried us through the storms of an right years revolution ; and we wen again launched upon this wide ocean of existence, and with wide spread canvass ws sailed onward over the deep unruffled sea. Onward to peace and glory wu pur motto. The Eagle of America which had Iain prostrate the shaggy Lion of England in 1812, hod learned England to pay deference to ns. The potentates of Europe stood n far off and gued on with reverential awe and wonder, at the magnificence of America. The arch-fiend that directs rebellions and conspiracies, had not bunted through the portris that bound him down in his dungeon of fats. i But, alu, according to the sacred tradition, He is to be loosed a Uttlejjeaeon. The dark portals turn upon their blac1ungers "and he walks forth, seeking whom he may de vour. Ferhape the first place he landed at upon this continent wu Charleston. Then the cloud of rebellion began to loom up in the distance. It fint appeared a mere speck, but it soon bunt forth in all the fury of a storm. It swept over the land in its anger. It came like a vut moving torrent, its dark clouds over speeding the land ; its red lightening of destruction printing hells death glare upon the sky. Ths very earth shook to its centre, and u tho secessionist thought they had settled the fate of Amorica forever, while yet the Government remained dormant, each citizen punning his daily avocation, excepting those who had treason in their hearts, little suspecting what wu going on behind the curtains. Thou who had bowed the knu unto Asdod, thinking they would bind the government while sin ibering, stretched their cords of burn i phalanxes from the Reeky Mountain to the Alleghanies, thu intending to njnd and stab with sacreligiou hands and 'destroy (he but government beneath tho eanopy of heaven. What I would the sons of Columbia suffer this maltreatment fulminated a-grinst their sacred institutions, without bring aroused with the greatest indignation? What! would ths government itulf remain tacit and motionleu while all this gagantio treason wu being matured for the subversion sf the most God-like institutions that were ever conceived by the capacity of man? Ne, never! Itwu only Bampeon submitting his invincible locks to the treachery of a Deliah. The government aroused from its leth-agy, shook off (he duitof years and went forth to battle in all its pride ahd strength. The cords with which it had been bound become u brittle threads, and rebellion shrank buk into circumscription, and may it soon be crushed forever. This we have reuon to believe will be done, from the uprising of the nation at every call of the President. Every appeal to the people is answered with enthusiasm, who are ready to come forward and vindicate the cause ef the Union, by pouring out their libations of blood on tbe altar of their country. Rusnccs. Written for tbs PwrjrviUt Union. Camp Jackson, Tknn., ) Auguit 17,1862. Me Editor To-day la 8nnday and tho busy hum of citizen and eoldiers is hadly surpassed by tbs rattling sound of Ktiitoy; Every thing it seems is ths wing. Not and then you can see asqutd of right men patrolling the town, and inquiring for your pau. Every thing looks sheeringi Even the ladies have been sun to smile- at one or two Captains this morning. " Deu-it nuan loyalty to sMBomo of, I vu going, to say secessionists, but ws are so used to saying chivalry that I will just let it slide for the present. , The city of Jackson is certainly oneoi the most beautiful plaeu I have seen m all my travels over Dixie Land. It contained before the rebeffiou broke out, about 4,000 inhabitants, but only about 8,900 at tho present date. There are two first dau hotels in the town, beridu several other plaeu of accommodation for travellers. It is truly u buriueu place. It contains two seminariu nod one college, and one ef the mut splo did Court Houses in the State. It is noted as bring the place where John A. Murrell wu taken and tried. There are two lawyers living iu tho city at the present time, that were attorneys for the notorious burglar, John A. Murrell. Ths citisens of Jackson are tho mut intelligent set of people I have met with for many years. Thus hu bun a great many men from this place, who havs distinguished themselves, and also a great Pirny who have extinguished themselves Jackson wu General E. T. Beauregards Headquarters when Columbus wu in possession of the rebels. Tbs course pursued by Hon. John W Noell, of your city, is bcutily approved of by our soldiery bore. Long live John W. Noel).

Whatever fortifications tbe rebels may have constructed to the south of Richmond will thus be rendered useless. The recent reconnoiesanees to Malvern Hill and toward Fetenburg, were frinte to deceive tbe enemy. McClellan's movement to Williamsburg ie, of course, made under the direction of that able strategist, Gen. Hillock, and tbs public will receive the announcement of tbe fact with hearty assurance that a terrible and deadly blow is eoon to bo (truck in the stronghold of treason.
