Early'a army,1sa It retreated from Bhorldan
after the battle, waa a mere rabble, all organ!
zation waa lost, and there was no unity except
In seeking safety in the same direction. The
rebel who took Lieut. Estabrook prisoner rob
bed him of his watch on the spot.
On reaching Hlchmond the prisoners were
put In Llbby Prison, being first searched for
money, all of which was taken from them, as
were also their -rubber blankets, haversacks
and canteens, together with any papers, maps,
woks, Kc.,vu.a mo reocia carea ior mcy
were kept ln a room without windows, wind
and rain having free access. Xoflros were al

one-third of them without blankets. Vermin
were abundant. Two meals a dav were served.
consisting of a Junk of hard, sour bread, about
as large aa a man's list, and a slice of meat
about three Inches square In the morning, and
the same amount of bread and about hair a
pint of black bean eoun for supper.
While Lieut. Estabrook was In ibo Llbby. the
capture or rorx Harrison, by ucn. iiuticrs
forces, took place, and the action was wit
nessed from the windows of tbe prison, as waa
also tho subsequent attack of tho rebels ln their
unsuccessful efforts to rccapturothat Important
work. During both engagements there was
great excitement In Kichmond. People cov
ered the housetops, eagerly watching the scene
of action, while men were running to and fro
In the slreets, and many hurrying to tho bat
tie-Held with arms ln their hands. The morn
ing after the last flgbt all tbe officers were
taken from the prison and placed aboard the
cara for Salisbury, Jtf. C, aa thoy supposed.
This was October 1. Tbe next day, while
the train was stopping at Barksdale'a Station,
about ten miles from Danville, Lieut. Esta
brook contrived to escape In a very Ingenious
manner, and tbe train went on witnoui mm.
He concealed himself near the station till tbe
coast was clear, and then made for the woods,
which he succeeded ln reaching. Finding an
old negro In a tobacco barn ln the vicinity, he
made himself known, and at once enlisted the
sympathies of the old man, who directed him
to his son-in-law, who concealed and fed him
ior aevcrai aavs, ana goi mm, a cnauga 01
clothlnir for hla Federal uniform, no was also
asilsted In procuring a canoe, with which to
get down the Dan river to the Weldon railroad,
up which be proposed to proceed till he should
reach Gen. Grant's lines. His sable friends
cave him full directions how to proceed, and
just before he pushed off la tho canoe, two of
tbem said i " .ve'i goin' to pray ior you, mas
ter ' and kneel! nc utxm the river bank, ihev
offered up fervent petitions for the deliverance
of tbe Lieutenant from his enemies. It Is
almost needless to remark, that the subject of
those prayers relt stronger after this touching
Incident, and parted from bis faithful friends
wllii a full Heart.
Lieut. Estabrook proceeded down the Dan
river as lar as tne lown or uiaraaviue. ai me neaa
of the Roanoke river, where he waa advised by
negroes to laite tbe iioyaiown piant roaa ana
reach the Federal lines by that route. This ad
vice he adopted, traveling by night and hiding
In tbe woods by day, and keeping on aa far as
Dinwiddle Court House, where he csme upon a
large rebel force. He then started off across
the country for the Weldon railroad, over
plantations and through woods and swamps,
directed and succored all the way by the col
ored people. While thus making for the Union
linea he had seversl narrow escapes from cap
ture. At one time he was concealed In the
garret of a house while two hundred rebel cav
alry were loafing about the yard, and aome of
tdom passing In and out. He could not oply
tee them throuzh a crack, but could hear their
conversation, which waa of a very despondent
nature wtion mo war waa unacr discussion.
Lttut. K. found no Union soldiers till he came
within live mlloa of City Point, which he
reached after twenty-five days of hard travel
and exposure In woods and swamps, and greatly
fa timed. Here he had an Inte.-vlew with Gen.
Grant, and was given a furlough of 11 ft ecu
days to come home.
Llent. E. Informs us that the countrv throueh
which ho passed la very scantily supplied with
the necessaries of life, and the people look for
ward with great apprehension to the coming
winter, not knowing how they aro to avoid
much tiering, tuo oroutn was ytry severe,
and tbe meat has beui all swept off for the nso
of tho rebel army. Planters go many mile
aud offer any price to obtain meat for their
families, but cannot get any. The people are
disheartened and thoroughly tired of tho war.
Every man and boy that can carry a muska
has been conscripted. The negroes everywhere
befrleudcd him, although the fact that he was
an escaped Yankee prisoner was probably
Known 10 iwo nunurea coiorca poonic, in-
cludlnc the families of the men who helped
blm along, not one of them betrayed him. Tbe
slaves, of whom there are many In that section
of country, conversed freely with him ln regard
to their being armed and pot In tbe rebel army,
and declared that if they wero they would shoot
ineir omccrs ana go over vo me rcucraia tn a
bodv. Thev said thev knew who their friends
were, and they would not tight for tbe men who
enslaved them and robbed them of the rewarda
of their labor. They assured bltn that there
waa a complete undemanding among tne
slaves throughout the South on this subject,
and tbat none of tbem would fight for tbelr
masters. Tbey wouia do giaa oi an opportu
nity to get arms and get together, and iben
they would turn against the rebels.
Several caaea of rebel barbarity were com
municated to Lieut. Estabrook by the negroea
who had witnessed them. At Danville, a cap
tured colored soldier, born at the North, who
was ordered to work on tbe fortifications with
other prisoners, refused, snylng that ho would
not woik against the United States, when he
v, as whipped to death. Another, who had at
tempted to escape, was hung, near Dinwiddle
Court-House. One of Wilson's cavalry, a
white man named Kendall, who was captured
during that General's raid, made his escape,
but was caught by a "mean white" named
Jeff. Davis, who turned him over to a county
ofilcial named John Norrlngton, wbo bad him
shot, and Jeff. Davis Is now wearing his
clothes. At one place he was shown the craves
of four Union soldiers who had been captured
wounded, and who were expected to die: but
as tbey began to recover instead, the rebels
took tbem Into the woods and shot tbem. Thla
latter caso waa not so well vouched for as tbe
others, which were narrated by so many dif
ferent persons as to learo no doubt of tbelr
truth, but was affirmed by one negro family

Second. Georgia offers to recogntaetbe free

the war, and make Immediate provision for the
freedom of all other negrocf In her limit within
tho erm of ten yeara.
Such Is the report which states tho dlstlu
gulsbed Georgian, who Is an ex general,
stopped at one or our hotels. We were not a
little surprised to bear that the story, Ineredl
ble as It would appear on first sight, Is actu
