Dear Uncle Georqe: I suppose you have
heard that I was taken prisoner at Mil
ford, a short time since. We were brought
to St. Louis and are now conGned in this
place. To-morrow, I understand, we are
to go to Alton. I write you to ask that you
will use your lnlluenceto get me out on
my parole of honor, as I am very anxious
to go home and see my family, and espe
cially my wife, who, I have heard, is very
sick. If you will procuro my release, 1
pledge you my honor I will religiously
observe and keep my parole until I am
released. I know thai you and I differ
politically TiponJ his question. I do not
know how it affects you. I have always
entertained the highest respect for you
as a friend and relative, and my feelings
are sf ill the same. 1 do not know how
vou tee!. 1 see your oince is in me l ro-
vost Marshal's office. I know you have
great inlluence, and I will be under last
ing obligations if you will procure my
release upon my parole. I am, very re
spectodly, your friend and relative.

Dr. Solon : Yours of tho Gth of Feb
ruary was handed me this evening upon
my arrival here. I had heard with deep
regret that you were a prisoner, taken iu
arms against the best uovernment on
1 regret to say, after reading your note,
I cannot see any signs of repentance on
your part. The crime that yon havo
committed is the highest known to the
aw. Tho coldest blooded assassination
the law regards as of less turpitude than
treason, and justly so, too. In the ono
case, only a single victim suffers, in the
other whole communities, States, and a
Nation is tilled with assassinations, and
all the crimes of a lesser grade.
Society is destroyed, law disregarded,
the torch of the incendiary, the knifo of
the assassin, with every other crime,
reigns supreme throughout the land.
1 lad you said in your note that you had
been duped, deceived, betrayed into this
rebellion, and that you repented, heartily
repented, of the course you had taken,
anil that now yu were reaoy to peril
life, fortune, and your sacred honor in
defense of the Government your grand
fathers toiled through eight long aud
bloody years of privation and suffering
to establish, then I would havo laboretl
for your release, and I doubt not I could
havo accomplished it. This you havo
not done, ana it is now too late ; you
can never have my aid. I his, to you
may seem harsh, cruel be it so. If you
were my son, instead of my nephew, 1
would never sutler you to darken my
door until you could do so as a pal not
and as a loyal citizen of your Govern
nave you ever thought ot the conse
quences of your course upon me? The
party with which vou are associated are
my bitter enemies, and seek my life. I
have already had to lly from my home,
and my house surrounned by an armed
band oi cut-throats the night 1 left.
What was my crime? Iniyalty to my
Government patriotism, your grand
fathers would in their day have called it.
For this, you and the party to which you
have joined your fortunes, think men
ought to suffer death. What is the his
tory of the leaders in this rebellion ? ft
is written in one word : Infamy. They
first began by committing peuiury bac.
black-hearted perjury in the sight of
God and roan. lhey have now addet
to their blackened souls (if, indeed, they
can be blackened) the crime of murder
Think of Iho thirty thousand widows
the cries of the orphan for bread, the un
availing regrets of more than one bun
dred thousand friends and relatives, and
then tell me if you are guiltless. Have
you not contributjd, so far as your influ
ence Cocs, to brini? this ws.il of woe, that
now goes up from this whole country?
suppose you could succeed, and your
independence bo established, who do you
suppose would be the leaders and promi
nent men of your Government TI.oso
w ho now are at tho head of this rebel
lionmen who for years were plotting
treason against the very Government that
they were sworn to support, with perjury
upon tin ir souls. I know your surround-
luga. 1 mi, to fount; t.v.env, unui in
your age, may excuse or palliate your
You have committed a crime that for
feits your life; the leniency of your cap
tors, or those in power, may Ll you go
free. This, however, docs not change the
turpitude of your ciinie. You will be
spared, if spared ut all, because I he gov
ernment is disposed to be merciful and
forgiving. I have written, I fear you will
think, harshly and unfeelingly to you. I
doubt not it will appear o. I was early
lauht, by an old revolutionary father, to
love my couiitiy. From hint I Lamed
the lirst lessons, of p.ttrioliin; fiom him
I learned to (! I. t an AncM and a H ill,

you li.nl inli. ut. . d more of his teaching
you would not now be where you are.

We regard it as our duty to expose
this plagiarist and impostor in his real
colors before tho public. He is, we
learn, a renegade Ohionn, and before he
came here was an avowed Abolillonist.
Settling in this city, he found that ho
could turn a penny by professing to bo
an ultra pro-slavery man, fire-cater and
Cotton-mouthed politico-parson. As ho

This, on our part, is not a bid merely
for patronage since all know that if
any school in this country could de
mand the gold and silver, with a pros
pect of success, the Academy, in view of
its former prosperity, could do so. Wc
design the proposition as an exponent of
our sentiments, and we also desire to

to ediflfale their daughters -now, since
this cannot be postponed to a future
We desire also to let you know that
the Academy occupies no middle ground
between the North and tho South. We
recognise the existence of war between

with the South.
