Perils of Kentucky Unionists The Louisville Louisville Democrat says : "Mr. B. H. Humphrey, who lived near Melburn. in Ballard county, Ky., owning a farm and some servants, was compelled to leave his home. Simeon Humphrey, a cousin, and Robert H. Humphrey, a large property owner, was also compelled to leave. "Mr. Summers, after getting his family across the Tennessee river, went back with his two sons, resolved to defend his property, including twenty or thirty servants. We have not heard the result. The cause of this treatment is, that these men are for the Union. They had the choice to take the oath to the Confederate States, leave, or be killed,"
