FORAGING SWEET POTATOES.
HOW YANKEE PRISONERS CAPTURED REBEL
YAMS AT LIBBY PRISON.
The recent sale at auction of the old
Lihby warehouse. In which ao many north
ern tolilirr. were connuex as prisoner, of
war, has brought nut manjr new and inter
esrinir stories connected with that historic
building. One of the bent of lhee was
tohl by an el Guard Joseph Wmnneld, who
lives in Richmond. The following is his
version of acute Yankee trick;
"It was about 'ftH, and I.ihby building
was M) crowded that it wouldn't hold any
more prisoners, so they put a large lot of
them in the second story of the building
across the street. 8ion after these prison
ers came the prison officials got a large
supply of sweet potatoes (regular yams)
from North Carolnm, and stortd them on
the first flour of the building in which
those prisoners were confined. Big sweet
notaloue were luxuries in thope days, aud
Turner and those fellows kept a strict
watch over the building, I can tell you.
The third day after they had been stowed
away it was noticed that they were disap
pearing at the rate of about a bushel a day.
At first it was thought that the rats look
them, but a second thought showed that
the idea was absurd. .Sentinels were post
ed all around the building with orders to
shoot any man they caught stealing those
yams, but they didn't see anybody to shoot,
and although they were posted there Jay
and night, and no one was allowed to enter
the room where the potatoes were kept,
they continued to disappear at the rate of
a bushel a day. The confederate saw
their yams disappearing in this way and
were furious. The thing was an unac
countable mystery. The doors and win
dows of the room were sealed, and private
marks were put on the wax, so that if any
one of theiu was opened it would be known.
The next morning the officers went into
I he room. The wax was all right but an
other bushel of potatoes had vanished.
Well, sir, it was the maddest crowd you
eer saw. They came after hie and ordered
me to take my si.md in the room. They
locked me in, and a lighted candle was
placed at each end of the room so that I
could see. ' I waa ordered to shoot on sight
anybody T saw stealing those yams. It
was terril ly louerome in that room. Just
as fat an I would light one candle and go
to tho other end of the room to light the
other the rats would cut the first one down.
They were regular Confederate rats, and a
candle was a godsend to them. After a
lot of worry 1 goi the rats out of the way
and sat down near the door waiting for de
velopments. There I stayed till twelve
o'clock; bul, though I kept myeyeson the
potatoes all the time, I couldu't see any of
them going. Shortly after twelve I heard
a creaking, grating wound, which seamed
to be all over the room at once, I cocked
my gun and held my breath, but still I
couldn't see any sign of life except the rats
oreeping about the floor. 'By George!' I
thought, 'this darned plaoa is haunted, if
there is any such a thing as a place being
haunted. ' The sound stopped, but about
ten minutes after it began again. 1 looked
at the pile of potatoes, and presently saw
something shoot I rum iboowliug' ami fall
on them. I saw it was a brick, and could
distinguish a rope tied tn il. I crept a lit
tle nearer to get a good look at the thing,
but before I could examine it it was drawn
slowly up, and lherewas alaiut a ieck of
yams sticking lo it, it went up through a
hole which had been cut in the floor above,
and presently came down again with a
thump right among the potatoes. It was
the most artful arrangement you ever saw.
The brick had about fifty holes drilled in
it, and through each hole a sharpeued ten
penny nail had been driven, so that when
the brick fell among the yams these nails
stuck into every one they fell on. I
couldn't help laughing at the smart dodge
those Vankces had taken to get at the yarns.
1 gently put my hand forward aud caught
hold of the rope. Pretty soon they began
to draw on it, and when it did not mnye I
heard one fellow say, 'Steady, boys; the
brick's hung in something. Pull her
steadily without jerking.' They did pull
steadily, and fairly lifted me from the
floor 'No jerk ; easy, boys, easy,' the di
rector said, and they tugged away. I got
pretty red in the face holding to trie rope.
I was afraid to let go, because I thought
some of those spiked nails might strike me
in passing. I thought nt my pocket knife
and hauled it out just as they were putting
all their weight on the other end of the
rope. I cut it in two and the end shot
back though the hole in the oeiling, and I
could heard rolling aud tumbling ou Ihe
floor above, showing that the sudden giv
ing way of the rope had bad a disastrous
eff eot. I heard another voice say : 'There,
now, I told you so. You'v brokeu the
rope. We've lost our brick, and to-morrow
we will b found ont.' Then another
voice called out: 'Can't you see it? We
might hook it up.' Next I saw a long neck
protuding through the hole, and a fellow
peering dowu. Then I called out: 'if
you trouble any more of those potatoes I'll
shoot.' That fellow's head shot back
through that hole just like u tcrivpiu, and
it was as still as death up there. I hated
to tell on them because it was such a sharp
scheme of foraging on the enemy, but I
had to. When the officers went up the
next morning to examtue the nw.iu it took
a long time to find the hole. . Those Yan
kees hail to cut a hole about a foot square
through the floor, and it was dons so neat
ly that it took eves to discover it. That
was where the ofiloers yams went to,
"What church is thai?" asked a stranger
of a native as they yesterday rode in a
Chestnut streetcar past lbs United States
Mint. "Its Church of the Almighty Dol
lar," solemnly replied the native. The
stranger reverently nodded with a thank
ful grunt of acknowledgement, and as he
continued on his ride made an inward
memoranr'utn to the effect that l e had
added to his store of ecclesiastical knowl
edge the name of a house of worship whose
existence he had not before suspected.

In 7VAon Monday morning was what
purported to be a confession of Kenward
Philp of his forgery of the Morey-Gur-fli
ld Chinese letter. Now the fact is that
Truth incontinently discharged Philip
over a week ago, and this alleged confes
sion, like Ihe alleged autograph letter of
Garfield, was a forgery! There is cer
tainly a delicious sort of poetic justice in
tills forging of a forger's name by tlie pa
per which was responsible for the original
performance. Philp, who is a very
bright fellow, in speaking of the original
forgery, said to me : "I don't mind their
accusing me of this job but I feel hurt
that they should think me so stupid as to
put Democratic spelling into what pur
ports to be a Republican letter," referring,
of course to the use of " company's " for

told that Truth still owes hiui $500 fcr

for the discovery and arrebl of the forger,
Thomas E. Louergan, will receive his re

Speaking of General Garfield calls to
mind a conversation I had yesterday with
John I. Davenport, or " Little Johuy," as
he is more familiarly called. You have
undoubtedly noticed that he and Marshall
Jewell visited General Garfield at Meutor
the other day, and the object of the visit
was said to be the necessity for obtaining
funds to settle up the expenses of the Re
publican campaign, Mr. Davenport as
sures me that this statement U not correct,
and in this connection he further said
that the day, the National Republican
Committee closed its labors and iu
doors they paid every cent of its indobu

Vienna gave up iu Prater, London Its
Hyde Park, Paris its Champ de Mars, and

not be used for the International Exhibi.

it looks very much as though there would
be no World's Fair in tliia city in the
year named, after all. The site selected
by the commissioners, we are aaaured in
auvauce, they cannot obtain. Unless some
man of clear head, sterling common
sense, and indomitable energy comes to
the front and sels Ihe nialtcr right, the
ouilook is most encouraging for a first

more time for trilling.
William Henry Vandcrbilt's new palace
is rapidly approaching completion, and
one of the combined art and social events
of the season will be the reception to
view the contents of his new art gallery.
It Is stated that Mr. Vandcrbilt spent not
less than half a million dollars for pic

to Europe, and the collection coutains
some of the best examples of the moat
famous living artists.
The publishers are al! making exten

and an unusually rich aasoitincnl of beau

from the presses of leading houses. A
feature of the holiday season, to which
more attention has been paid this season
than ever before, Is a large assortment of
Christmas cards, id entirely new and ex

Eveiv man should be willing' we
think should be anxious to investigate every
thing lhai is likely to benefit all man kind
as the discovery of Kendall's Spavin Cure,
because it is now being used on human flesh
with most remarkable beneficial results for
rheumatism and deep seated paines, and
it has proved by experience that it is equal
ly as good for human flesh as tor any ani
mal. It is penetrating and powerful, and
yet it can be used full strength with perfect
safetv on a child as well as a grown person.
For all blemishes on horses, it never has

THE EMANCIPATION OF MAN.
She looked just like that kind of a
woman when she Came Into the fanrtiim,
and all the seniors became instinctively
very busy and so absorbed in their work
that they did not see her, which left the
youngest man on the staff an easy prey, for
he. looked at the visitor with a little natur
al pohieneas, and was even soft enough lo
offer her a chair.
"You are the editor?" she said in a deep
He tiied to any "Yes," so that she could
hear him, while his colleagues in the sanc
tum couldn't, but it was a failure, for the
woman gave hirn dead away in a minute.
xou arel she shouted, 'then listen lo
me; look at rut , what am Vf
The foolish youngest man looked at her
timidly and ventured to say, in a feeble
voice, that she looked U) be abovt forty
sev "Am I not a woman?" she said.
The youngest man weekly tried to correct
his former error, and said she seemed more
like a girl
Bul again she broke in upon him with
"Gir-r-r-l!" she said, "I am a woman; a
woman with all tha hearen-born aspira
tions, the fathomless feelings, the aggres
sive courage and the indomitable will of
woman. What can you see on myfaee'r"
The position of the youngest man on the
staff was pitiable, but none of the old
beads apiieared to observe it. At least,
thev didn t offer to help him out. So he
looked at her face a second, and said tim
' Nursling," she shrieked, "had yno the
soulful eyes of a free man you could see
shining on my brow the rising light of a
"Could I," asked the youngest man Um
idly. ''Yes, you could I," the woman said in
tones of unmeasurable scorn. "Now bear
me, bave you a but 1 cannot bring myself
to Ube the hateful expression in the style
of masculine possession; are you anybody's
The youngest man blushed bitterlv, and
said that he wasn't as yet, but be bad some
"And you expect your that is you ex
pect the woman whose husband you will
be to support you?"
The youngest man blushed rriore keenly
than before, and tremblingly admitted thai
he had some expectations that lhat
that the only daughter of his proposed
father-in-law, if be might put it in thai
"Yah!" snarled Ihe woman; "now let
me tell you the day of womau's emancipa
tion is at band. From this time we are
free, fer-reel You matt look for other
slayes to bend and oringe before your ma
jesties, and wait upon you like slaves.
You will feel the change in your affairs
since we hare burst our chains, and bow
will you live without the aid of women?
Who makes your shins nowf she added,
Tli youngest man miserably said that a
tailor, on Jefferson street made his.
. "Hni," said the woman, somewhat dis
ooncerted. "Well, who washes 'em, I lieu K
she added, triumphantly.
"A Chinaman just west of Fifth street."
the youngest man said with a hopeful light
The woman glared at him and groaned
under her breath, but she came at him
"Proud worm, who cooks your vitcuals?"
The youngest man said truly that he
didn't know the name of the cook at his
restaurant, but he was a man about forty
years old, and round as a barrel, with
whiskers like the stuffing of a sofa.
"The woman looked as though she was
going to strike him.
"Well," she said, as one who was leading
forlorn hope, "who makes up your bed
and takes care of your room?
The young man replied with an air of
truth and frankness '.hat he roomed witn
railroad conductor, and an ex-Pullman
sleeping car porter took care of the room.
She paused when she reached the door.
and turned upon him with the face of a
drowning man who is only five feet away
Irom a Hie buoy.

OUR NEW YORK LETTER.
Henry W. French, of Boston, arrived fn
this city frran Liverpool by the City of
Brussels, bringing with him a troupe of
dancing girls, musicians and jugglers from
India. These girls perform the Dauteh
dance, and in conneation with Ihe other
members of the company are to appear at
There are fifieeu persons in the company
five women and ten men. The women
are some of the principal performers of
India, and belong to the only elass of
women in that country who are taught to
read and write. The oldest is called Bhoo
ribai, and is 26 rears old. bbe is on of
the principal, dancers. Th. chief dancer
is 18, and is one of the greatest performers
in India. These two belong to the famous
temple dancers. No Mabanajar ever en
tertains a guest without giving on. of
these dances. Tne nautch danc is a feat
ure of all religious and holiday festivals.
The youngest of these girls is 12 years old.
They speak no Englisb.'and are the first
Mahometans who ever came to this coun
try from India. The native manager of
this company is manager of th. Bombay
Theatre. Oomerkhan is one of th. best
of Indian jugglers, ami one of bis com
panions is a knife player he juggles with
long knives, keeping large number cir
cling about bis head at one time. Anoth
er is a snake charmer, and brings with him
io uoora.-, a scorpion, ana a little ani
mal called a "mongoose," which is used lo
stir up the snakes, it being very hostile to
Ihem. All food for the Hindoos and Ma
hometan must be cooked by one of their
number. The men sing ana play on their
native instruments while the women go
through their peculiar movements. The
women also sing continuallv while dancing.
The company left Bombay October 10th.
The members of it were in excellent spinta
during th. irip, after their first uneasiness
left them. Tbey were much petted by th.
passengers. The beauty of the women is
a matter of taste. In India they are con
sidered very handsome. Three of them
are married. They are all very modest.
They wear a'satin rest which does not cov
er their throats and is fastened behind.
They also wear satin trousers reaching
nearly lo the ancles, over all they throw a
long guaae cleak, They wear rings oq
their fingers and toes, strings of pearls
about their ears, ami aBklets and nose
rings of solid silver. They wear no dia
monds as those stones are not fashionable
id India. It was very difficult to get these
people together and to persuade them to
leave tbeir country. Mr. French says it
a native friend of hie had not consented to
come to America on a visit the others
would have been afraid to come. Just be
fore starting they conceived the idea that
they were coming to America to be sacri
ficed at a festival, and almost refused to
come. Their chief duty at home is to par
tieipatein festivals. The first rank of thesa
women is never permitted by the priest to
leave the temple. They all reverence as
their special patron and protectress, Holy
Mother Bhowanoe, supposed by them to
be the most beautiful dancer in the para
dise of Hindoo religion. Their dances do
not resemble what-we call. dances, and con
sist of lithe and graceful whirling, marvel
lous in its quickness, and also in mystic
wealing and pantomimic contortions ex
plained by their tongs. Each dance has a
meaning, and theseutimeut is always mad.
plain. Tbey hare one dance which repre
sents a railway train, and the clatter of
the engine is heard all through it.
The statue of Alexander Hamilton, pre
sented to the city by Colonel John O.
Hamilton, son of the great statesman, was
unveiled on Monday in Central Park fn an
appropriate manner. The cold weather
did not prevent the attendance of many
distinguished persons, but caused so much
discomfort that the throng adjourned to
