The American Eagle. We have received
the first and second numbers of this paper, estab
lished in Louisburg by Richard Inge Wynne and
W. II. Pleasants. The Etxijlc presents a liaudsoiue
appearance, and is well conducted. It gives a
cordial support to th'i administration of President
Johnson, and Vaj-s, iu one of its well-written Kdi
torials, "to the Union of our fathers we have
always been loyal." This is the right sort of talk.
We wish the Estate, while soaring "on that line,"
the most pleasant brccKcs of prosperity.
The Rewval Interest still continues un.
abated in ihe Cifji" At the Baptist Church the
number of penitents is still lai ge and accessions
to the Church are of daily occurrence. At the
Methodist Church, on Sunday and Sunday night,
the interest on the subject of religion seemed to
take strong hold on the feelings of the audience,
a number who had previously made a profession
of faith, attached themselves to the Church, and
the number of penitents was increased.
At the African Cliureb, also, a series of meetings
have been held, and arc still continued, and large
n umbers have made public demonstration of a
desire to become christians. Many have already
made a, profession of religion, and many more are

Robbery. The store of Mr. Alex. Pleasants,
four miles from Raleigh, was broken into on
Saturday night last, and the whole of the contents
a small stock amounting to about one hundred
dollars, taken away. Articles, such as enndy
tobacco, and other small wans, were found along
the road leading toward Raleigh, by which the
course of the depredators was traced nearly to
the city. Prom all the tacts, it is pretty certain
the robbery was not committed by colored per
sons in this ease.
Drowned. Two negro men, whose names we
have not been able to learn, were drowned while
attempting to ford Crabtrco creek, at Rogers's
Mill, iu this county, on Sunday morning last.
They were iu a wagon, and missed the ford, get
ting into deep water, and were unable to swim.
One man, name unknown, who was with them in
the wagon, escaped by swimming to the shore.
Bc-a-n-tiful. We saw some of the tastiest,
sweetest, most be-a-u-tiiul bonnets at Creech's,
just opened, yesterday morning, that we have
seen this season. Of course the ladies will flock
there to see them. There were a number of new

at the same time.

FRIDAY, Ai'kij. 0, ISGo.
The jouraal of Thursday was read.
The direct examination of Capt. John A. Fuqua,
for tiie dcicase, was resumed.
After the arrival of the prisoners of war, some
ot thein were employed as cooks thinks there
was but Ivvo or laree ilays notice oi the prisoners
coming the preparations lor them were very in
complete t.jj pa.i.-aile wa pat up alter their
arrival. Gen. Gardner was tliero. jtiat before Tue
prisoners came the grounds were ci.iurged and
welis dug us fast as tiie means at hand aJiorde..
Gee laaje reqai.-itiou on Goodman for lumber,
but did not get it, as Goodman did not have it,
but got some iu a lew days fur the paih-ade. Maj
G?j telegraphed to Rienmoud, urging ag.-.iust
sending prisoners of war to Sali.-bury, because ot
the unsuiubleness of the place aii.i the want ot
provisions, water, wood. and saci.cr the only
reply was the continued arrival ol prisoners.
Witness examined two piaees on the Yadkin, at
the instance of Gen. Garduor, but louud them
laifit for tiie purpose of a prison an attempt was
then made to turn the creek, near the town,
through the prison grounds, but tills was found
impracticable, on account of the aseeut and wain
of machinery. The supplies of food had been
drained iu the cuuutry around Salisbury to JuruUh
Gen. Lee's army tiiis was ured by Maj. Gee, as
a reason against sending the priooucrs there.
Witness had frequent conversations wiih Maj.
Gee, in regard to the sickness and mortality
among tiie prisoners Maj. Gee deplored their
C'.uuiUon. often there were no rations to give
out; and tiie olJcers sat up at night awaiting
train.; to bring in food. The prisoners brought iu
water ;:i barrels they had plenty of barrels
theie were as many men furnished to go with the
prisoners for water, as the number detailed as
guard by the commander of the troops, would
allow never heard any complaint for lack of bar
rels thinks most of tiie wells in the prison lutd
means for drawing up water the requisitions lor
guards were seldom tilled, and this was a source
of trouble to Maj. Gee, who frequently complained
of it; but he had no control of the commander
of the troops, and could not force 1dm to furnish
more than he saw lit. Most of the troops there,
officers and men, were very inefficient.
Witness staled the duties of the officer of .the
-day; also gave a description of the prison sinks,
which accords substantially with former testi
mony out iiose subjects. Stated it was very dif
ficult to lind officers who understood and would
perforin their duties. The hospitals were sup
plied with straw whenever witness saw them
thinks there were no prisoners there but had
shelter of some sort the burrows in the ground
were more comfortable iu dry weather than tents j
witness hud burrowed partly in the ground
at one time the army of Virginia had no tents
could not get them. Maj. Morfitt informed wit
ness that there were 400 tents for the prisoners I
they were Sibley, wall ad common tents, i
lac tents were put up, after their arrival, as
fast as poles could be procured.
At the time Gen. Winder came to Salisbury
Maj. Morfitt had some buildings framed and near
ly ready to put up for the prisoners, but Gen.
Winder stopped the work, saying the prisoners
would soon be removed these buildings were on
a large scale; as large as the lumber would makn
Maj. Gee applied to the prison authorities at.
Richmond for clothing for the prisoners, when it
was understood that the U. S. had sent clothing
to the South for prisoners of war, stating the
great destitution of the prisoners at Salisbury, in
this respect. The rations of the prisoners were
the same as those furnished the guards except
that the bread in the prison was better than that
of the guards, because the former was better
When Gen. Gardner was at Salisbury he ordered
that a small surplus of the rations of the prisoner
be taken to increase what was known as the post
fund, which order Maj. Gee did not have enforced,
and no portion of the rations were so used. ;
: Witness described the palisade Around the pri
son, and stated it to bo rather frail, especially
that part that was built to enlarge the grounds,
alter the prisoners arrived a man might easily
shake it with his hand, and there were places
where the plank did not reach the ground, under
which persons could creep by removing the dirt
many prisoners did escape in this way thinks
600 or GO i iu all one or two hundred were re
captured they were not punished for escaping.
Witness gave the facts connected with the kill
ing of Lieut. Davis. He had just come from the
town to the priscffcwjd was informed by Mr.
Lycrly that one of the prisoners, an officer, had
been shot by a sentinel, and that the others were
very much excited went into the prison when
Gen. Hays, one of the prisoners, asked that the
sentinel should be removed, and witness promis
ed it should be done. Witness started with some
of the prisoners to look for a pin or badge, that
had belonged to Lieut. Davis, when the same
sentinel warned him not to approach, and it was
not until he had called the corporal of the guard
and some other oiiieer that he was allowed to go
to the place.
Before this a guard had been placed on the in
side of the palisade and about ten feet from it,
and the path they trod was known in that part of
the prison as the dead line ; the tree at which
Lieut. Davis was shot wits between this line and
the palisade. The sentinel who shot Lieut. Davis
"was a lad about fourteen years old, and witness
did not think hiin of sound mind thinks if he
had possessed ordinary discretion he would not
have shot him. The shooting of Lieut. Davis
east a gloom over the whole garrison, and Maj.
Gee expressed great regret at the circumstance
he removed the sentinel pursuant to the request
of Gen. Hays and the other prisoners. It was
against the orders for prisoners to cross tl e dead
line, and if Lieut. Davis crossed this line, witness
did not think the sei tinel broke the strict letter
of the order.
Court adjourned to 10 o'clock Saturday.
SATURDAY, Apish. 21, 1800.
After the reading of the journal, Capt. Jno. A.
Fuqua was re-called to the staud, and the direct
Iu relation to the killing of Lieut. Davis, wit
ness repeated substantially the statement of yes
terday sentry who shot him told witness that he
was at the tree, and prisoucrs said same thing
witness saw signs of deceased having been there
don't recollect that sentinel stated he had hailed
Davis witness was sure the tree at which Lieut.
Davis was shot was between the dead line and the
fences don't think there was ground to punish
the sentry, as deceased had crossed the line
witness reported the case to Maj. Gee substantial
ly as he has stated it here asked to have the
sentinel removed and gave the reasous for it, and
Maj. Gee had him removed. Witness thinks his
own life was in great danger at the time he started
to approach the tree to look for the lost pin
never saw the sentinel but on that occasion.
Maj. Gee teudercd his resignation at Salisbury,
and wrote Gen. Gardner to assist in getting it
through, giving as his reasons, the iiiellieieney of
the guard, the want of provisions, lumber, iVc,
to make the prisoners comfortable; that his busi
ness at home required his attention, and that he
was exempt by ago and by his profession from
military service. Tiie reply was that his position
would be made easier, aud his resignation was not
Maj. Gee endeavored to induce Col. llinton, in
comaiaud of the OStii regiment, to encamp around
the prison, but he refused his Major, in his ab
sence, commenced pitching his camp around the
prison, but llinton, hearing of it, ordered them
back to their former camp, llinton was ordered
by the authorities at Richmond, at Maj. Gee's
solicitation, to encamp around the prison, but he
refused, on the ground that his regiment, were
State troops, aud not subject to the control of the
Confederate authorities. Col. Hiutou alternant
moved his camp beyond the creek, a mile or more
lrom the prison. On the day ol the outbreak
llinton haC his regiment and one company ot
Freeman's battalion, which lie bad taken Hie au
thority to annex to his regiment, ready to start
from Salisbury. This was Capt. Sue-ad's company,
the best iu the battalion, and the one lror.i wi.ie.i
mo.-t of the p.-on olliciais Were sekclid, and
they had all been withdrawn on tiie day of tiie
outbreak, to go with their company.
Tiie outbreak occurred about 2 or 3 o'clock
v.'u;.ess was in Maj. Gee's olliee heard great yel
ling and rapid firing of musketry rushed out to
ward the prison and realized at once that the
prisoners were endeavoring to escape saw a
shower of stones and brickbats llyhig over the
walls reached the gate aud saw the guard rush
ing out, som-j eight or ten were wounded and two
or three soon fell and died the i-entnie'.s on the
the guard to turn out, but they seemed no; to
understand what they were to do, and did not
move at length rallied abo.it a dozen who went
with l.ini on the parapet about this time one ot
the pieces of artillery was tired, followed imme
diately by the other at this the prisoneis began
to scatter from the gate, where there were some
,.00 or 2,ii0tl, and go into theirtents and burrows
witness seeing this ordered the tiring to cease,
went to the gun at the south-east angle and stop
ped it from being fired and sent a messenger to
the other gun to order that to cease also that
gun tired once more thinks before the messenger
had time to reach it.
About this time the citizens, old men and boys,
came up, and witness had great diiliciilty in pre
venting them from shooting tiie prisoners they
appeared very anxious to tire on them. There
were but two guns mounted at the prison at tiiat
time the lirst shot tired on this occasion was
solid and passed entirely over the prison and fell
in a gentleman's lot in town.
Witness could not see the water gate from
where lie was at the time, but heard that a crowd
of prisoners was there saw Maj. Gee when he
first went out, hurriedly buckling on his pistol
belt did not see him afterward till the firing had
ceased, when he met him on the parapet and they
walked round together, to stop the firing and to
A number of the guard made a stand at the
gate, and got hold of some picks and 6hovels ly
ing there, with which they kept the prisoners at
bay and prevented them from going out. There
were 15 or 0 of the guard inside, who were dis
armed by tiie prisoners some of the arms were
recovered afterwards, others were thrown in the
wells there was firing inside the prison can't
tell to what extent saw one of the guard near
the gate wounded with a musket ball. Witness
does not think the main firing lasted more than a
minute and a half there was some scattering
firing afterward, after the order to cease tiring
had been given. This occurrence was a subject of
regret to all the city officials in conversation
with witnSss, Maj. Gee expressed much regret
that it had occurred, and that they had been
obliged to lire on the prisoners knows that Maj.
Gee used every effort to stop the firing and to
prevent the citizens from firing after they arrived
and this he did from policy as well as humanity,
for if the firing had been kept up the prisoners
would certainly have renewed their efforts and
succeeded in escaping.
This outbreak, us reported by prisoners, was
commenced at the instigation of certain non
commissioned officers among them, sergeants of
divisions. Two of these were reported to Mai.
Gee by the prisoners, and be had them brought
olt the citizens and soldiers were clamorous to
have them hung, but Maj. Gee prevented it, and
sent them to Richmond but for Maj. Gee's ef
forts, they would have been hung they were not
punished otherwise than by close confinement.
Witness stated, as an official there, that upon tie
occasion of this outbreak there was no more firing
on the prisoners than the exigency of the occasion
xequired, except the last discharge of the cannon,
,! .'hlch fired before the order to cease could reach

Court adjourned to 10 o'clock Monday morning.
MONDAY, April 23, 1806.
After the reading of the journal, the direct ex
amination of Capt. Jno. A. Fuqua was resumed.
Maj. Gee had no choice-of the guard, but had to
take such as were detailed to him, except some
from Freeman's battalion, who were detailed as
ofiicers for the prison, lie found it difficult to
lfiive the guard perform their duty properly
don't know as to Maj. Gee's control over the sur
geons, he could not change nor remove them
the policing of the prison was under charge of
the officer of the day. Maj. Gee had no control
over the quartermaster or commissary Major
Morfitt denied his having' control over him he
and Maj. Gee had some trouble about wood, but
don't know what the decision at Richmond was
in regard to it. Morfitt went away from Salisbury
to Danville or to Richmond without asking leave
of Maj. Gee.
The centre of the prison yard was rocky, as if
it had been Macadamized. Maj. Gee reported to
Richmond that if Ilintou's regiment and Capt.
Snead's company were taken away from Salis
bury, the prisoners could not be kept iu, or would
not be safe their removal necessitated a decrease
in the number of sentinels. Wit ness thinks there
were 1,500 or 1,70 men recruited out of the pri
son Maj. Geo opposed thin recruiting, and atone
time refused to allow a Col. Tucker, who had a
commission V recruit at some other xrisons, to
enter this prison for that purpose. Never saw a
placard under Maj. Gee'.s name posted in the
prison, and dees not believe: there ever was one
thiuks i! there had been he would have known
it the recruits were foreigners no Americans
were allowed to be recruited. The rule in allow
ing prisoners to go outside was to parole them
never knew an exception. It was an easy matter
to escape under the palisade of the prison, if
prisoners could get to it they could scratch out
with their hands in a few minutes, iu many parts
At the time the officers were sent away, it was
from apprehension of an attempt to escape. This
apprehension was based on the fact that they had
been seen throwing slips of paper acrss the line
to the men witness saw one of these papers; it
stated that a certain signal would be giveu, and
the nieit must then rally under the sergeants of
divisions and come ovcrto the ofiicers, who would
lead them. Maj. Gee reported these facts to
Richmond and an order c;ime for the removal of
tiie ofiicers to Danville, but when the order arriv
ed they were about starting.
Gen. Winder was at the prison soon after the
I outbreak, and said to the pri -oners in presence of
j witness that half of them ougtit to have been killed,
j and in case of such another attempt, not one of
i them should be left alive. Maj. Gee formed a
j very unfavorable opinion of Gen. Winder.

The Cholera-a Board the ship Virginia, near
.!"- New Tot. '
There is-no doubt that the cholera is in
the vicinity of New York. The steamship
Virginia, having on board a number of emi
grants, left Liverpool for New York on the
4th April. Her passengers numbered more
than 1,000. On the fifth' day the choleaa
made its appearance, and some forty deaths
occurred before the vessel reached quarantine
near New York. The following is the state
ment of the health officer, Dr. Swinburne :
"The steamer Virginia arrived at the lower
Quarantine about 6 o'c.ock on Wednesday
evening. She was at once boarded and ex
amined by Dr. Burdett, who, after making
the usual medical examination, found twenty-eight
of the passengers in the steerage
lying sick of cholera. The doctor immedi
ately made a communication of the fact to
me, and I went on hoard, and found the sic k
suffering from Asiatic cholera. They had all
the positive symptoms of the disease. Their
faces were of a dusky color, their eyes were
sunken, and they had the purgings incident
to the disease. Their hands and body were
shrunk, and they had also all the other symp
toms. The surgeon's assistant had been
stricken with it, and his place had to be sup
plied. I immediately ordered Dr. Bissel to
have the Virginia sent down to the lower bay,
antl not to permit the passengers to land un
der any circumstances. In addition to those
who were lying sick, I found ten or twelve
others who were laboring under the disease
in its incipient form. The passengers who
had escaped the disease were full of appre
hension lest their continuance on boar I
might be the means of their taking it, an 1
they were anxious to leave the ship. I found
that three persons had died while the vess 1
was coming to the lower bay. Alter making
the requisite examination I left the steamer
and made the necessary arrangements to h.tvo
the sick attended and the disease limi
ted to the vessel on which it broke out."
