Bushwhackers in Calhoun County.

— We have information that a party of about twenty bushwhackers visited the lower part of Calhoun county one day last week, and stole horses, money and other property. A party of Union men from Calhoun county went into Grafton, Jersey county, to arrest one of the bushwhackers, and as they approached the town an alarm was started that a party of bushwhackers were coming, when the Union citizens of Grafton met the Calhoun Unionists, and a conflict ensued in which several lives were lost before the mistake was discovered.
