The Richmoud Whig, in speaking of
exohanging prisonets through the agency
of Gen. Butler, said on the 28th ult.:
"Upon the whole, and in view of the
accomplishment of so desirable an end us
the liberation of so many of our noble fel
lows, now the tenants of Yankee prisons,
hope the President may not find it in
compatible with the dignity and duty of
the government to waive the outlawry
and recognize the Beast. It will be nec
essary fur Cul (Juld though to be wide
awake when they get to arranging the
terms of exchatjge, for this cross-eyed
Yankee has in him the cunning of the Evil
One."
Very courteous, ehivalric and refined
is this language of tho Virginia gentle
man. But it euggests one reason which
we think probably leads the rebels to de
cline to treat with us through Gen. But
ler: that is, they know that be will not be
thwarted by Ould's falsehoods and trick

cunning and understands special plead

want to get the forty thousand rebels we
hold in their possession, by hook or crook,
for the twelve thousand of our men whom
they hold. By no sort of juggling can
they get such an exchange through But
