Two men volunteered in the army at Warsaw, Kentucky. They left on Friday, on a furlough, to see their friends on Paint Lick Creek, a few miles above Warsaw. While they were there they were captured by some secessionists, who threatened to hang them. Lieut. Howe, with a squad from Warsaw, went to their rescue. Coming up to the Secesh, he ordered them to surrender, and was fired upon. Howe's squad returned fire, killed two, and took two prisoners. One of these Howe released, and the other was sent to [the Union penitentiary in] Columbus, Ohio. The names of those killed were Hendron and Hughes. Several others are said to have been wounded. - Madison Courier
