that he had the honor of voting for the
nomination of McClellan. His real er

could rely, and he also had the promise of

would have done so if everybody else had
been as plucky as Alexander Long ofOhio.

MATRIMONY IN THE AIR.
The latest sensation (to come) is that of
being married in the air which is to say
in Professor Lewis' balloon that goes up
every afternoon from Central Park. This
evening's Herald comes out with the an
nounceuicnt that the Professor is fitting;

a delicate compliment to the angelic qual

words to that effect) which ought to be
appreciated uy ine ouject ace, (or words,
&c.) particularly as the cost must be
heavy, and after all that is the true test of
love. As one goes up the Hudson "as is
his custom of an afternoon," he sees the
aforesaid balloon floating in the air, and
feels interested in knowing that the
waving flugs are waved by human asses
and how much more interesting will be
the sight when one recollects that they
arc waved by those that are united by "the
willing tie that together binds two willing
hearts aud corresponding minds," which
is to say, the aforesaid minister. Speak
ing of ballon asensions, it may be re
marked that on Saturdav last, the notori
ous not celebrated llarrv Leslie, of
Niagara fame, performed all his feats on
ropes siif-pended a thousand feet from
earth by a balloon. For my part I should
consider it wicked to look at such au exhi
bition. Such sights are degrading to the
human mind, and a well contested dog
fight is elevating in comparison to such a

Tribune, of Saturday last, came out
with a very parti-colored 'supplement, on
one page an account of the revival of 1857,
which commenced in the iliddle Dutch
Church in Fulton street, and on auotlr
page a full and elaborate narration of a
visit to all the low places, cock-fights,
concert-saloons and dance halls of the
metropolis. And this is the " Familv
Newspaper" that boasts of a circulation of
one hundred thousand among the larmers
and the mechanics and the best people of
our nappy land. 1 was once amused by
the narration of an old Clcvelander's visit
to the homo of the bold Greeley, how he
found that the "iray mare was the better
horse," and that he knew of no better gov

Of all isms. One would imagine that the
Tribune's employees also had their own
way in editing the paper, or else that the
festive II. G. had deserted his color and
was changing his sentiments on affairs of
this world. Speaking of newspapers re
minds me to state that there exists a very
petty quarrel between Bennett, of the
Herald, and the theatrical managers of
New York. Bennett has been making
himself obnoxious in refusing Uie adver
tisements of Barnum's Museum because he
has a disagreement with Barnum about
the old site of his JIuseum, where the
Herald office is to be located, and so the
various managers refuse to advertise in
the Herald. As the matter stands Bcnnet
has the whip hand of them. He refuses
bushels of advertisements daily. The
Herald is the most extensively read news
paper in New York, and if they don't
choose to patronize him it looks like their

Capt. Albergcr, Ast. Q. M., was the
principal witness. He was sent lor bv
Gen. Briscoe on the morning of the 20th
f September at Headquarters in Lynch
burg. Hie General asked him what
amount of money he had in his safe, and
of what denomination, saying at the same
time, it could be taken a" well as not and
no one be wiser for it.
In reply to questions witness informed
him he had in his possession between Soo,
000 and $70,000. The General proposed
throw a small amount of money into
some place and have the witness's house
broken open and his safe key stolen, to
which Captain Albergcr objected. He
said that during tho time thev had been
conversing the money could be taken and
half the town arrested. He said that when
the witness was arrested, he (the General)
would be President of the court martial
and have them acquitted. When he went

General Grant on the Mexican Question.
Philadelphia, October 4. It is estab
lished bovond a doubt, that, in conversa
tion with a distinguished Illinoisan. a few
days since, liiwutcnntit General Grant so
far varied from his customary reticence on
public topics, as to unreservedly express
Inmsclt on the .Mexican question.
He declares that the Government will
vindicate the Monroe doctrine at an earlv
dav, and that Maximillian must leav
Mexico. It will be, he savs, less expen-
sivcjto rid Mexico of the presence of an
enemy, than to guard our borders against
him. It is his opinion that it will require
no call for troops but that with our present
army we can spare enough to give effect
iveness to the forces that Mexico will be
ready to put into the field, if our govern
mcnt aids them in the matter of supplies,
Genersl Grant is ot the opinion that the
fre.-ideiit anil authorities at v ashington
hold this as a settled purpose, and only
await the meeting ol Congress to take open
ground in the matter. It is believed that
France will not be able to disregard Eu
ropean coniplicatijns, present and pros
pective, so as to make the cause of Maxi-
lniuian her own.
This solution of the Mexican question
must be accepted as one of the forthcom
ing sensations lor the close ot the year.

There were only about fifty pairs of shoes,

about forty or fifty boys were in the stock
ade. AVirz requested Dr. AVhite to take
them into the hospital, and said that it he
(AVirz) had his way he would send them
into the Union lines, as they would only
get sick and die. He finally sent them to
pick blackberries for the sick. AV ltncss
learned, however, that the nurses made
pies of the berries, and the sick got none.
Dr. AVhite ordered vaccination, and AVirz
said to a man, who refused to be vaccinated.

office as clerk. He had to carry orders to
the stex kade and morning reports to Gen
eral AVinder's headquarters. Requisitions
were made out "every day. Ihey stated
the number of prisoners and of those on

Every morning a list was made of the

also cave Duncan orders to provide Xha
prisoners with barrels to put down in
wis to keep tag from foiling in.
There was a detail of one hundred men to
clean tlie camp. It was a very hard mat
ter to obtain shovels and pi'eks, but he
finally succeeded in obtaining about seventy-five.
It was a common thing to see
about some of the things broken.
About forty or fifty boys were in the
stockade and'AVirz requested Dr. AVhite
to take them into the hospital to help the
nurses or cook. He said if he had his way
he would send.these boys into the Unioii

some medicine. The Doctor said he had
been sick with the same disease himself
but had no medicine. He told the'wit
ness to get blackberries. The witness did
so and was cured. A chain gang was
formed under AVinder's orders. AVhen
the plan had been matured by the prison

power to both issue and stop the rations
of the prisoners, and he exercised it.
AVirz nversi;ned orapjiroveil the requi

Judge Advocate Chipman here asked
the witness a question relative to General
AVinder about the chain gang.
The witness commenced speaking about
some other matter and had evidently be
gun a long story, when Colonel Chipman
requested him to confine himself to the

opportunity to explain. If the gentle
man, (Chipman), did not treat the wit

Geo. AV. F. Reynolds testified that he
was taken prisoner as. a spy in Tennessee.
He made his escape, but was re-captnrcd
in Mississippi and sent to Richmond. He
was afterwards transferred to Anderson
ville, where he arrived in June, 1804. He
acted as a prison sutler, and also as a mag
istrate. Men were brought before him for
stealing, who were punished by flogging
and being set to work. A number of men
were banded together, and took by force
what was not their own, such as watches,
money, clothing, food and tin cups. A
police force was organized to put down
the raiders. This police force were ealh'd
regulators. On one occasion the raiders
tried to put down the regulators, when tho
latter called for and received assistance
from Captain AVirz. Eleven of the raid
ers were arrested, of whom six were hung,
and five were pvaecd in the chain gauir.
The witness said there were five or six
working shoemakers in the stockade, and
as many tailors and two watchmakers.
AVitncss also testified that the streets of
the camp were filled with soup jobbers,
and at the roughly -constructed tables
could be bought coffee, tea, cream, eggs,
&c. There were 500 bakers in the stock
ade who sold pics and cakes. There was
plenty of flour, saleratus, &c. AVitm-ss
had an establishment called a novelty
store. He had a greater variety of arti
cles than any other prisoner in camp; had

fect of rtlieving General Bragg from fur

grave legal question as to the right of the
commission to proceed with the trial of
Wirz. ihe question, however, has long
been well settled, and the withdrawal of
one member or any number of members of

three will not vitiate the proceedings nor
prevent the remaining three or more from
making up the judgment.
