My frend, I want to say sumthin. I
snrposa there la no law atrin thinkin , but

generally so as to feel better. You Bee
I'm trying to harmonise. I'm tryln to
soften down my feelins. I'm endeavor
ing to subjugate myself to the level of sur

can't do It until I am allowed to Bay Bam

and then mako friends. I alnt no giant

no boar-constriktcr, bnt I'll be hornswsg-
tried if the lalkin and the writin and tho

got to dry up or turn oar folks loose, , It's
a blamed outrage, no-railed. ' Aint your
editors got nuthin else to do but to pook
at wt, and squib at ws, and crow orerut ?
Is every man whs,t kanrrile a pararaf
to consider us as bars in a eage, and be al

Now you see my frend, that's what's dis

Vnn: KJitnrt la looking over the proceed
Ings In the case of Cajd. Wilis, late fomifiandsu!
of the military tirlsnn at Amleraonvlllo, (icorgla,
now on trial at Washington for his life, for atroci
ties charged to have licea committed by him upon
Federal prisoners In bis enstodv, I obrerve that lb
Impression Is sought lo lie made that the cruelties .
said lo have been perpetrated at that prison were
not only unnninl at military prisuns and were ac
tually committed, but that they were authofired
and ordered by the Confederate (lovcrunirnt. The
object ol this effort to throw aildltlunal odlnm np
ou the Confederate Government Is very transpn-'
rent, it Is none, as 1 conceive simply for the pur
pone of furnishing fresh pretexts for the persecu
tion of the distinguished Confederates now lying
in the Government prisons awaiting their trials.
Whether the trial of Cetitald Wirt will be a
fair one or not, the result will show. Of that I do
not now Intend to apeak. Certain It la, that wit
nesses have been Introduced to establish the fact of
easterns and usages In the treatment of Federal
prisoners at Andersnnvllle, which every Intelligent
man at alt conversant with the subject knows to
have been universal In prisons both North and
South. Much for Instance, as depriving- tirlseriers
of their money whea they entered the prison, and
shooting tl.ero ir they passed the dead line and
the Republican press hsve held np their bands In
boly horror at these hrpocrltlral narrations, as If
no suck customs prevailed In Northern orisons and
no Confederate prisoners had ever been starved,'
murdered, or robbed. The great point which ap
pears to be retied on to establish the fact of cruelty
to the prisoners at Andersnnvllle Is the great mur-'
lallty which occurred there. The mortality was
certainly without a parallel lo any Southern prison,
out ir uie statements or northern presses, woo
have been candid enough to sneak out On the sob. ;
Jeet, and the narrative ot prisoners themselves ran '
be relied on, the ratio of mortality, to the number '
confined, will be found upon Investigation to hsve
been about ae groat, tn some, at least, of the North- '
era prisons. This (hot however, will ui I be devel
oped at this time, for It would redound to the In
terest of Cantaln Wins, snd that, 1 presume Ii not
tus onject or tits present prosecution.,
ADiiersonvllls prbved. upon trial, ' to be a verr
unhealthy location for men of Northern constitu
tions, n Neither the sdmate or the water seemed to
agree with lbs prlsokors son fined there.' The un
derstanding throiighoitt the Houth was that the'
prisoners received tht itme rations as the soldier 1
of the Confederate eieu'.and, the fart .thai thry "
were without shelter, fi.es for littlo, tv urn II IS re-'
membared that limy bere soldiers.1 snd that tha
soldiers of the ennfedutute army had fur years no '
other cohering than lb" broad canopy nf heaven. '
Tt eetaiiisii we coags ir-at 4 he Confederate'
Government waa a part) lo any unusual prsctlt es .
which tney bo developed, It must be shown that '
Uie practices referred lo were common In nil the
prisons) and, If It Is alleged that the extraordinary
mortality at Andessonrilla was ths result of orael
tlcs, It tnu:t be shows tliat Uie same mortality was :
exhibited at tho othur prisons also, for ths prisons ,
were all under the general supervision and illrcC-'
Uon of the same ollUer the Ootmhlsmry Oouoral '
ot prisoners. General Windor, tilled tliis olllco for '
a considerable time, snd was succeeded upon bis -doath
by Gen. Vlllow, .
I hapien to bt In possession nf a fhrt which has
sn Important lienring Nion this point, and which '
Is too Intimately connected with tht truth of bis
tory to be suppressed, It Is this: . , ,( ,
Oil or about tho JHlhof April Inst, the Tost Sur
geon of the prison at Cahaiia, which was located
a few miles from Helnia, Alabanui, sent- to ths pa- "
per wltli. whkh I was connvcieil, aooinpleto list of -the
names of all the Federal prinounrs who bad died
In that prison from the date of Its establishment to ,
that time, a period of about one year, - I hail placed ''
ths document oa Ills tor publication, but' the snd- -den
arrltal of the army under the command of
Uen. Wilson, Snd the capture of the illy prevon- ,
ted It. This list embraced, as nearly as I can now
remember, about one hundred and rllty names, and
:hat was the sum . total of deallis out of the five
thournnd prisoners who had been conftued thort
during the year. ' Can the records of any N irtlirrn
prison show so small a ratio of mortality T I Imag

prison at Auder.v.ivllle, and another and entirely
different rule to that at CVhahe, The prisoner at

enemies, and if it was the policy to murder them
at ens place It certainly was at the oUicr.
Prisoners may havt been harshly troaled at An.
