the scenes through which Le and his fel
low-soldiers, taken prisoners at Shiloh,
passed. He said he had become used to
harsh language when speaking of the
demons of the South, whoso conduct to

murder and barbarity.
Goionel Jordan, Assistant Adjutant
General to Beauregard, was tho only

As to the Libby Prison, it was a palace
compared to the ones in which they were

Many of the olliccrs with whom ho
conversed blaspbenmously condemned it,
saying it was damnable, and never could
be enforced; but he (Prentiss) responded
to them : " If you say you never can be
conquered, and that you are bound to
whip us, what harm can the proclama

more to end tho rebellion than all the
battles fought. He was applauded
throughout his remarks.

thee lection netva received lasti-veninu was
generally considered as "inised " There
was a good th ai of excitement at hotels
last evening, and crowds wero gathered
to discuss the resnlls of the Congres
sional elections o far as they had come
in from Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana.
There are large numbers of intelligent
Republican here from those States now
in office, and their interest in the election
is known. The talk in these c irrlcs re
minded one of lhe old times previous to
the war, TiW dor net pcem to be
very much disappointment hero in the
result. Prominent Rt publicans from
Ohio and Indiana have said for a month
the Democrats would make large gnins in
those Slates, first, because of the absence
of so many Republican volunteers in tho
war; and, second, because of the alleg
ed mismanagement of the war during the
past summers. It has been no secret in
Washington for a long time that Gover
nors Tod and Morton, and other leading
supporters of the war in Ohio and In
diana, have urged here that public
opinion in tho West was violent)" op
posed to the management of the war by
Generals who avoided fighting whenever
there was an excuse for it, always leav
ing the advantage of attack to the
enemy. This feeling has been very strong
all over the West, and has made il self foil
in the elections to a certain extent. The
rejoicing over the defeat of allan-
digham is great among the Ohio Republi
cans, and they are extremely sorry that
Cox, of Columbus, is not in tho same
category ,but the fact is that Cox is a bet
ter fellow at heart than Vallandigbain.
Cox generally supported war measures
while in Congress, and allandighara
was an open " peace Democrat."
Captain Semmes, ok the Pirate Ala
bama. Captain Scmmcs, of Confedeaate
steamer Alabama, (2!0",) sports a huge
mistatche, the ends of which arc waxed
in a manner to throw that of Victor
Emmanuel entirely in the shade, and it
is evident that it occupies much of his
attention. His steward waxes it every
day carefully and so prominent is it that
the sailors of the Alabama term hint ' Old
Beeswax." The ofllcers of the Alabama
are reported as very daintv gentlemen.
In plundering a ship that fake nothing but
articles that suit them. If replenishing
their stores, they invariably rejoct brown
sugar, taking nothing but the best loaf.
With kid gloves it is the same ; they re-
luso colors, and will have nothing but
pure white. And so it is with them all
the way through. They appropriate
everything they find worth having, and
destroy the rest, and are pirates in every
sense of tho word.except that they do not
take me or, rather, they Lave uot yet
done so. The plan that Semmes has adopt
ed to bring fish to his net is as follows :
Whenever he captures a ship, after taking
from her all that he and his odicers want,
he lays by her until dark, and then sets
her on lire. The light of tho burning
ship can be seen many miles, and every
other ship within seeing distance stands
toward the light, thinking to rescue a
number of poor fellows from destruction.

who have, to servo the cause of humanity
gone many miles out of their course, find
themselves under tho guns of the Alaba
ma, with the certainty that bi fore anoth
er twenty-four hours they will 6harn the
fate of the ship they came to serve. This
plan will enable him to destroy an lm
menso amount of property without much
cruising. He can lay in ono position and
gather tho ships around him during the
night, ready for operations on the coming
day, Tor weeks to come; for it will be a
long time before her depredations can Imj
made known, so that our unsuspecting
merchantmen will bo on the lookout fur
him. Again, he will be enabled to cruise
for an indefinite length of time; for he
uses no coal, depending upon his canvass
entirely, wLich, it neems, is all sufficient
for hia purpose. He carries stores fr
eight months, and can always replenish
from the prizes ho may take. He w ill be
