Many of those blockheads who are
forever blabbling about the Constitution,
don't know that there is such a clause
From the Oinrinnnli Camtte.
This word, which is now much used
by correspondents in describing the has
ty and disordered flight of the rebels be
fore our victorious armies, may easily be
traced to a Greek origin. The word
slteJ'innumi, of which the root is sleda, is
used, both by Thucydides and Herodotus
to describe the dispersion of a routed
army- (Sec Thucydides IV. To, 112,
and Herodotus V. 102.)
The last named historian, in the pas
sage reiered to, alter giving an account o
an engagement at Ephesus between tin
l'ersians and the Ionians, in which the
latter were defeated with great slaugh
ter, says: "Those who escaped from tiiis
battle were scattered (Ureek ihr hu-lhttan

From the root i.vtbi, of tliw won:

formed by simply adding the euphoni

So much has been Paid and so little
actually known of prison life at Bich-
T.innfi a w tierionreil nv I titteil Mixtrn
soldiers in captivity there, that the vol
ume before us, giving a Milhful account,
will probably find a multitude of read
ers. Lieut. Harris, its author, is an in
telligent Bhiladelphian, who writes irt
the plainest and most straightforward
manner, telling his own experience, and
faithfully recording what passed before
his own eyes from the time he was taken
prisoner at the bat tie of Ball's Bluff, on
the 21st of October, 1MG1, to tho 22nd or
February, 18G2. Four very unpleasant
months they were to him and others.
Lieut. Harris was one of the twenty
four officers captured at dusk, at Ball's
Bluff. They were immediately marched
under guard to Lcesburg, three miles dis
tant, whero their advent excited almost
frantic exultation. Declining to accept
a parole which conceded no privilege ex
cept that of paying their own hotel bills,
they were taken ofT to Manassas, where
they were marched into an old barn.
''Here," Mr. Harris says, "we were visit
ed by scores of Confederate officers and
civilians, none of whom were in tho barn
a moment before they commenced discus
sing the political causes of the war. Con
versing with that effervescing tempera
ment so peculiar to the Southern born,
their manner soon became 'disagreeable
and quarrelsome, and we found it neces
sary to abstain from all conversation. A
few ladies came to the barn door, stood
and gazed upon us, smiled t heir smile of
contempt, and (hen went tripping away
to tell their friends 'how dirty and nasty
the Yankees looked.' " They reached
Richmond by rail, on the morning of the
21th October, received with mingled tri
umph and hatred by the populuce, who
crowded to see "the Yanks," and march
ed into their future prison, which is thus
described : .. .
"The Tobacco Warehouse, where the
oflicers and two hundred and lifty pri
vates are connneti. is Miuateu in mo
lower nortion of the city, on the south
west corner of 1 wenty-tiftli ami Main
streets, and was occupied, previous to
being used as a military prison by Messrs
Liggou it. Co., for manufacturing and
"It is a large three-story brick build

oecnliarly adapted for prison ami bos
pilal purposes, lhe main for nrst; uoor
is allotted to the oflicers, fifty of whom
are its present (December 1, lftbl,) occu
pants. The second and third floors con
tain each one hundred and twenty-five
orivates. In the centre of the oiiiccra
floor is placed the machinery for pressing
and preparing tobacco, dividing it into
two equal sections, tbe western bein
used for eating and writing purposes, the
eastern for promenading and sleeping
Ten mess-tables, made out of rough pine
boards, and a number of wooden bench
es and stools, occupy the main portion of
the western division; and the floor is
well covered in the eastern by bedsteads
and cots of Southern and prison manii
fact ure. The latter are primitive, yet
unique in style, being of the simplest
structure that rough boards and a lew
nails can accomplish.
"The length of the officers' room is
sixty-live feet nine inches, width forty
live feet, height twelve feet three inches ;
on" half of which space is occupied by
the machinery in the centre ami northern
portion of ihclloor. The room is lighted
by five windows on tlie west or lower
side, ami three on the east or city side.
Those on the cast are level with the
street, and well protected by iron bars;

badly treated. On reselling Richmond
"Thrust w ith six hundred privates into
a warehouse when5, sweltering with
the heal of midsummer, with closed win
dows, and not room sufiicionl for them
all to lie wedge-packed upon tho floor,
they remained, sull'ering ar.d without
food, for nearly twenty-four hours. They
were then removed to their present quar
ters, yet were permitted to occupy only
half tlie space subsequently allotted them
the eastern section of the room being
illcd with the prison guard and senti
nels on post upon the same floor, with or
ders to bayonet all who approached
within three feet of them.
"For weeks they 6lept upon the floor,
without blankets or overcoats, with
docks of wood and not enough even of
(hose for pillows. It- was not until
three months had elapsed that the Con
federate authorities furnished straw and
cotton coverlets. Without servants, mess
tables, benches, or even knives and forks,
they ate their meals cross-legged upon
the floor, and off the window-sills, in a
primitive, yet (owing to tho quantity
furnished) ravenous style. Without wa
ter facilities, except a well in the yard,
which was used not only by the oflicers,
but also by live hundred men confined in
the upper stories of the warehouse, one
of whom only was allowed to use it at a
tune, hours would pass each morning
before an oflicer was able lo wash."
In October, the treatment of the cap
tive oflicers was improved, but that of
the privates not. In all, 2,8;!5 were con
fined in Richmond, and their condition is
painfully described. "With the floor for
a bed, without straw, many without pan
taloons, all with scant raiment, but few

Regardless of life, dead to t. dictates of
humanity, their jailors see them die dai
ly, apparently without sympathy, evi
dently without attempting to prevent
mortality." They had only two meals a
day, breakfast and supper. The first a
small piece of cold beef and five ounces
of bre.ad, the other half pint of soup, and
five ounces of bread, rice being sometimes
substituted for meat. "The rice is often
wormv: thn most is conked two dnys
before consumed, and lies exposed to a
trough in tho yard, becoming covered
with dust and ashes, and the juice being
extracted by making soup for one meal
before the meat is served dry and hard,
for the next."
I'coplo were allowed to intrude upon
them, to insult them w ith (lie most foul
mouthed abuse of their loyalty, They
were not allowed to go near any of the
windows, and seven Federal prisoners
were shot dead by the sentinels for in
advertently leaning from the windows.
The prisoners amused and employed
themselves amid all their privations.
They had a glee club, which sang na
tional songs; they hail amateur theatri
cals; and, with such simple instruments

Mr. Faulkner, who was exchanged
against Mr. lily, visited the Richmond
prisoners in December, and declared
" That United States oflicers in Rich
mond received treatment .similar to that
of Confederate privates in the North.
'That United States privates were
trea'cd much worse than Confederate
.privates were in the North.
"Tli.it the, privateers North received
every comfort possible under the circum
stances. "That the Federal host a-, s in Rich

up his mind, at long l.v4, to build an iron

have discovered as he did, no doubt, ,i

on the plan and offered it to tho Kmmror

have got the contract, and tho vessel is
