The Greensborough Patriot
June 26, 1862
In the Lincoln U. S.
Senate, on the 12th inst., Mr. Davis, of Kentucky, offered a
resolution that the rebel Gen. Buckner, captured at Fort Donelson,
and now prisoner at Fort Warren, ought to be transferred to the civil
authorities to be tried for treason, whereof he stands indicted in the Kentucky
District Court. After some discussion,
during which Mr. Davis said Buckner ought not to be exchanged, but taken to
Kentucky and hanged, the subject was laid aside till today.
A Federal General should
be kept in reserve, to be dealt with just as the Lincolnites
deal with Gen. Buckner.
