Guerilla Outrages - Richardson's rebel guerillas last week made a raid into Metcalf county, and burned Ray & Grinstead's gristmill and woollen factory. They also stole a number of horses, burned the houses of citizens, destroyed grain, and committed other outrages.

Last Friday a party of thirty entered Hodgensville, Larue county, under Capt. Richardson, calling themselves "Richardson's Scouts," who robbed and plundered Union citizens of money, goods, horses, and other valuables, but paid secession sympathizers for what they took. This gang came across an old man named Headley Graham, at Centre Point, and robbed him of three dollars, although he is miserably crippled and an object of charity to all except those who have turned devils and joined such thieving gangs as this. These raids are generally led by men who are well known in the neighborhood.

Editorial written about the depredations of guerilla raids in Kentucky says "Richardson bears a commission as a regular military officer of the Confederate Government, but there is not upon the famous Newgate Calendar the name of a viler and baser robber than he and his command. It were an insult to Robin Hood to mention him in connection with them."

We learn that the guerilla, Richardson, in his late raid into Green county, robbed Col. Raylston of $1000 and destroyed a number of valuable papers belonging to him. They also robbed the stores along their route of all they obtained.

The notorious guerilla Richardson & several others were captured yesterday by a scout sent out from the forces of Gen. Hobson on the Cumberland river.
I might have a fuller account of Richardson's capture in my files, I'll look and post if I find.
