The 15th Regiment.

While the Keokuk Gate City and its correspondents are pitching into the St. Louis secession sheet, published under the misnomer of Republican, for stigmatizing the 15th Iowa regiment as cowards, are they aware that the Fort Madison Plaindealer, published in their own county, is republishing as fact the same batch of lies? Our contemporary had better look nearer home, and crush the treason which crops out of his own county.
