FEELING THEIR GUILT. — The cruel hearted officials and petty tyrants of
the now defunct rebel militia, endeavor to excuse their dastardly outrages and
acts of mob violence by saying that they were forced to this perpretration by
superior authority. When wrong is about to be searched out, evildoers, writhing
under the sting of guilty conscience, betray themselves.
Memphis Union Appeal, July 22, 1862.
