Colonel WooDCurr, lha gallant Ken
tuckian, wholias lately been'exchange d
after nina months imprisonment in Bich
tnond, gave the following account of the
inhuman treatment he and his fellow
prisoners received" from the Rebels in
Virginia. Contrast this with the hunfane
treatment invariably extended to rebel
prisoners by our armies.
We were carried to the rear, f6 Charles
townj Virginia, where r were waited
upon by J:z. Wise ssd staff, -r.d othf r
ollicers of his command, whose language
and conversation was anything but
agreeable. Tho place we occupied was
continually surrounded by an excited
populace, ana the barrels of whisky in
time wcro rolled out in the street, and
the heads knocked in by order of tho
General, no doubt to prevent mob law
from dealing with us, under that addi
tional excitement. From hero to Rich
mond we wcjo subject to insult, threats
and annoying curiosity. On the way
they heard of the battle of Manassas,
which set the peoplo wild, and gave them
the assurance that they would at once
occupy Washington, New York, and
Philadelphia, and establish tho suprema
cy of the South'.
At Richmond we were thrust into a
tobacco factory, where wo found some
forty officers, taken at Manassas, the lloor
of which you can imagine ws none of
tho cleanest, yet it was our bed. No
blankets or other article to shield ua from
the filth, with a block of wood for our
pillow, and a good consciensce for feath
ers. Neither were we furnished with
bench, chair, table, knife, fork, cup, plate
or ppoon. Our food, which consisted of
beef, bread and water, was brought to us
in tubs and buckets, and you could help
yourself as best you might. In these
crowded rooms we ate, slept and had our
exercise, and for want of facilities for
cleanliness, many having but one suit of
clothes, it was not astonishing that ver
min predominated to an alarming extent
and of several varieties.
The commandant of the post, a Lieut.
Todd, and his coadjutor, Lieut. Withers,
were tminently qualified for their posi
tions, for one would certainly suppose
from their acts that they had been born
in obscurity, nursed in depravity, and
educated ia barbarism; and with the
ignorance of their birth, the vices of their
nurse, and the wanton cruelty of their
education, fit subjects to carry out the
orders of their more infamous General
Winder, a hero whose father deserted his
country's flag at Bladensburg, and whose
worthy son was perpetuating the history
of his family on the unfortunate patriots
of his native land. We were much an
noyed by the visits of men whose object
seemed only to b insult and bravado.
Our prison was constantly surrounded by
a curious crowd, who laughed, jeered and
howled at us. The sentries carefully
watched tho windows, that, if a Yankee
head dared to become visible, they might
have a shot at it, and several were thus
killed. Ollicers were handcufled as sui ted
tho whim or fancy of our masters. A
reverend gentlemen, Mr. Burrows, fre
quently came to insult and taunt us.
Members of their Congress visited us to
inform us that we were fit subjects to be
hung. The newspapers urged that we
should be put to work at trades, and such
as had none should bo made to dig coal
in the surrounding pits. The poor
wounded were placed also in a tobacco
factory, without medicines, ins'ruments,
or any appliances, where they might be
cared for, when in agony of mind and
body, wiih tho worms festering and feed
ing in their undressed wounds, lliey
Builercd intensely, not through the Unit
of our own surgeons, for they did all
they could w ith the means in their power
to allay their sufienng. 1 hese poof K-l
lows, when on the verge of eternity, were
even denied the consolation that relij'ion
eives, though our own chaplain were
ever ready I'o ministe r to them, aud when
dead they were carted away a tfogs, and
interred in the negro ccuicterifs.
Those who should be termed women
visited no sick ot ours, iliere was no
soft hand tosmoothe the pillow or bathe
the fevered brow; no nurse to prepare the
delicate food, but only their anathemas
reached them through barred windows,
Avhilethey were soothed with t lie rou
care of comrades, and fed on tho rough
food the prison furnished. Such exhibi
tionsof crucify as were manifested there
make the heart sick, the numerous liici
dents of which wo.ild fill volumes, and
give such an insight of despotism as
would even make tyrants tremble.
From Ju re we were Bent to Charleston
S. C. On the way for three days, wo
were kept confined in crowded cars, with
sn k'aiid wounded, m which we were re
quired to remain wh"'it rest and with
but little food. Paraded through nunicr
ous little- towns on our passage, insulted
by incn and women tho latter much the
worst surrounded by crow s hoot in
and taunting us, but unheeding, w
prouoiy passed on, regardless ot tue la
iiatio'exhihitions, and felt that we weio
BuHVriiig in the glorious cause of libcity
and l.'nioii. Arrived in Charleston, vu
Were placed in the common jail, without
the slightest lu-ci-ssaj-y comfort; thciice

returned to jail, where Colonel Corcoran,
Colonel Wilcox, myself Lieutent Colonel
NefT, and Major Potter were, on the l'JIh
of November, placed in condemned cells
as common felons, to await execution. It
is imjiossible to describe the feelings in
this episode of our career. Locked with
in separate cells, tho gallows ever visiblo
before us, the papers desiring to have us
hung every morning before breakfast,
and tho thousand little things wo were
made to suffer, for nearly three months,
during which, a terrible fire rased around
us, and by the Divine hand of Providence
we were saved. Removed from hero to
Columbia, S. C, again incarcerated in a
crowded Jail, we remaihed until the 25th
February, when we were again removed
to Richmond for f xchanga, and incarce
rated in a tobacco factory. From day to
day were we fed with the hope of a
speedy release, but it did not come, and
two weeks before I left wo were removed
to a warehouse, heretofore used for pork
and bacon, where sixty officers aud men
confined on a lloor 3." by GO feet, tho floors
greasy, salty and damp, from which
there was no exit for exercise tlie men,
some 2"i0 in all, on tho upper lloors, and
only three windows for light and air.

AToocliIna Letter fromaltobel
The following letter is from a Mary

federate army. It is addressed to a lady
in Philadelphia. The writer was a
young man of promise, whose friends are
deeply grieved at tho wreck which trea

itation in making public whatever she
earns respecting the position of tho reb

' i Hospital C. S. A.,
Richmond, Va, March Cist, 18G2,
I wrote you some months ago, my dear
and I then thought, as I said for
ho last time. But somehow, notwith
standing your well known scorn for one
lolduig a position, voluntarily assumed,
in w bat you call tho rebel ranks, despite
your persistent silence when a kind
word from you would bo treasured be
yond price in tho face of all these, I
again write to you. Had health and
prosperity continued with me, perhaps I
might have had strength to keep my res
olution to maintain silence toward one
who I fear will never forgive me for en
tering the Confederate service : but the
heading of my letter will tell you that I
am in that saddest of all places, a mili
The regiment to which I belong was,
with others, at Centervillo during tho
atter portion of the winter, where wo
were most comfortably quartered and
well provided. We formed a part of Ma
gruder's division in which are many Ma
rylanders. Several camo from the vicini-
ty ot my uear out uome, mai spoi
which 1 so tenderly loved, and ot whoso
beautv I was so proud. Soldier as I am
C , I weep at the recollection of the
lappy, innocent hours passed in that
lear home ; and littls did I think when
I first described its charms to you that
the time was rapidly approaching when
I should bo exiled from it and from you
But I was telling you I found many of
my former neighbors here, and thrown
ia such close contact with many mutual
sympathies and memories, we have been
like brothers to each ofher. Constant
correspondence has been kept up with
the dear ones in Maryland, and when
one received a letter it contained good
news for us all.
Lately, we found it expedient to retire
beforo the advancing Federal forces, in
order to strengthen Richmond. In a
skirmish I received a wound in the side,
which is very painful, and may possibly
prove fatal. 1 was tarried away by my
comrades, and brought with them all the
way to Richmond. All was done irmy
relief that circumstances would permit,
yet I suffered terriblyjduring the journey,
hut before I reached this place thicoii-
scioipncss relieved my anony.
I receive every attention of which the
ireumsf ances around me will admit; but
the surgeons liav more to do than they
are able to perform thoroughly. This,
and all the hospitals, aro crowded with
tho sick and wounded. Medicines are
scarce, and, indeed, wc are entirely des
titute of several drugs which are liiot
necessary to us. There is also a lack of
surgical instruments, and a need of pro
per nurses. We have very few regularly
trained nurses, most of the attention be
ing bestowed' by convalescent soldiers.
This makes sorry work; it takes a lit t lo
practice to accustom a man in gm-h duties,
and by the time he has a slight knowl
edge of the work, his health is restored,
oadhe i returne d to his regiment, for
the South needs all her sons in this hour
of peril. Tho ladies attempted to attend
the su k, nrd really aid as far as possible;
but lack of e xperience and want of in rve
to hear the unpleasant si 'hts of hospital
life soon drives most of tlniii away
With all these deprivations, the pains of
sii kncns and the clanger of wounds arc
; re at! v enhanced.
April 1st, 102 IVrofoyesterdayun
til my strength utterly failed, and now I
resume my pen, hoping to be able to fin
ish tliis epistle, for one of my cc'mrades
leaves this place to-morrow and has prom
ed to dispatch this for me.
I told you yesterday how poorly our
sufTcrir.g soldiers were attended. , Np
doubt humanity made you sorrow that
even rebels suffered so. But, C , what
think you of the fate of the sick and
wounded prisoners among us ? They aro
cared for, of course; but our surgeons
naturally seek tirst to preserve the lives
of their own men; and what nurse in
the Southern ConfWlerey but vrculd
rather watch beside one of their own suf
ferers than by one whom they must con
sider an invader? I state the fact as
mildly as possible, for I know that in
your estimation thee invaders are tho
heroes and martyrs of a righteous cause.
I would not refer to their position among
us, bnt knowing tho resources of the Fed
eral Government, I wondc why she fails
to send relief to the sufferers in our
midst? Was there no one who so loved
the Union that ho or she would como
even as a prisoner to attend to your
wounded here ? I know your Govern
ment proposed sending Commissioners
here for tho purpose, but the Codfederacy
refused to accept them, yet much might
bo done by individuals.
Sinco I have lain here, surrounded by
suffering and death, I have thought much
of the causes of all this sorrow and des
olation; and I am convinced that we of
tho South had better borne far greater
wrongs than we endured, or feared, than
to have brought such ruin on our coun
try. In tho North they fell us compara
tive prosperity' reigns; but in Virginia
whole villages lie in ashes; homes are
desolated, sons, husbands and fathers lio
in untimely, graves; poverty invades
homes whero hitherto his presence was
undreamed of; servants, loved and trust
ed, prove faithless. All tho ties of life
are severed, and, disowned and unrecog
nized by her si6tcr nations, the Confede
racy struggles bravely, but I fear vainly,
ior ucr existence, before a foe whose pow
er she cannot measure.
We might possibly overcome the im
mense army already brought against us,
lor though inferior in point of numbers.
men fight desperately in situations like
ours; but were these repelled, who knows
what countless hosts would stvrintr to
arms trom the teeming population ot tho
North? I fear our cause is hopeless, and
this feeling dispirits our army, and pal
sies them on tho battlefield. Some are
willing to snrrender and make the best
terms they can, while others swear to
fight until death. Our official councils
aro divided. Some would stand bravely
and conquer or die, others insist on cau
tion; and this extreme prudence keeps us
retreating until wo are ashamed. But
trust me our army will yet make a des
perate stand and prove, despite fur late
reverses, that we are not cowards.
As for me, C , I may not leave
this place alive; for though I am so much
better than I have been, the doctor tells
mo that danger is not yet past, and that
if I persist in cxertihg myself as I am
now doing, in writing this long letter,
fever may superveno and, result fatally.
Let it come I have no wish to live to
seo the South subdued, and through fu
ture years to bo scorned as a traitor. If
I recover, the moment I can wield my
word I will return to my post, and at
least clio a man. I do not say this in
boasting or defiance, for I really regret
that I ever participated in rebellion; but
I have done it and cannot retract with
honor. Therefore, if our cause falls, I
hope to fall with it.
Tlie time is short. Tho Federal army
is moving fast upon us. The final strug
gle cannot be far distant. It may be tlie
last lime I can ask it: will you not send
a few lines; not to tho Confederate sol
nicr, or rebel, if you will call me so; nor
even to tno former friend; but to a siek
aud suffering man who longs to know
you have still some sympathy for him
