REBEL PRISONS.
by un. h. noumiocit.
In September my last eft'ort at (?aio
log liberty by tunnelling was made
nud at tbo 6ame time was frustrated.
Fifty men comroencod a tnonol on a
grand scale. It was ooarly com
pleted, and was one of tho uiont per
foot things of the kin J ever devised
by the priaouers
It wns commenced at tho bottom
of n oli wall, aod two moo oonld
walk abreast from one end to tbo
otber. Oua of our nnrubor botrayo J
us to the rebel quai tormastor for s
ping of tobacco.
Another of our companions saw
tbem conversing, sod getting bobind
them, heard him say or propose to
toll the quartermaster something
important, if he would give him tbo
tobacco. He ran and imfurmed us
in season for ns to make onrselvos
scarce.
After the tnonol was discovered,
those engaged in it were naturally
enraged, and, soUing the traitor,
printed on his foreboad, with ipdia
ink, aod noodles, indelibly, tbo lotter
T. They were proceeding to woree
punishment, when a rebel guard
came into the stookado and carried
Jiim outside.
In spite of evidenoe to the con

Piligont inquiries-wore sot on foot to
nd out who had punished the trai

. To accomplish this, we wero
threatened with being starved into
submission ; but the rations, after
boing stopped for twentyfour boars,
were again issued. Humors of ex
rlaoge eontinned to pervade the
prison, men, crazy with tbo idoa of
freedom, and home, wandered up and
down the prison, clinging to every
rnmot, like drowning men to straws,
Tbe etoitement was made worse
Ly tbe extravagant rumor circulated
around camp by the rebol quarter

was the grim messenger, dootb i At

termed, to be ready to loavo tho pri

as those sounds oatnoat last dimly to

Thoy staggered to their feet, and
woro carried, by the pressure of a

foebly cbooring, rogardloss of tbo
presence of the robots, joioed in tho

I recalled it, though many otbor
forgolton things were not again
brought to mind.
I was waiting for my torn to come
to got out of prison, Kvory sabtor-
fage was rnsortod to, to go with the
lucky ones.
Those who bad moans bribed ;
those who had none "flanked," and
were rewarded oftimes with broken
beads, for others became desperate
at tbe idea of .being cheated out of
tbeir chance of going home, aod tbe
polioe exercised any thing but a pro
tecting infloenoe upon the unlucky
beads of flankers,
I went at last, rejoicing at what
appeared to be tbe day of doliveranoe.
As I passed rebel beadqoartors, J
saw sergeant Cross, who, it will be
f remembered, was one of my captors,
wheu I escaped at one time from
Acdersonvillo.
Well, Cross, "said I. "Tbors are
no blood bounds after me this trip

Ooo of ray comrades, S. M derpcr

but buuper got tho better of the

During tho first dy, tlroo men
diod io the car wbero I wa. My
bread lasted nio two days, as I was
carbfal not I eat t"o much at a time,
yet it was considerable troublo to
havo it abont a man n person a con
tinuod tomptatiun to myself and to
others.
Wo arrived at Micnn the after
noon of oar first day's travel, the
vigilance of the guard was hero
redoubled, and the fact oxcitod out
suspicion, that there was to be no
exchange aitor all. As we passed
through Macon, one of Sherman's
men pointed out to me the ballet
marks on the buildings, and f on cos
made by our advanoe just before bis
capture.
We had been suspicions, that wo
ware going to Alabama, but our
boarts rose within us as tbo cars
took tho direction for Savannah.
A negro infonnod us, that "Cap
tain Sborman" bad (taken Atlanta,
and was making for Motion as "tiht
as be can oomo." This loolo-l liko
romoving ns to a place of security
rather than au oxebungo ; still, wo
wore hopeful, that we wero to bo
exchanged to prevont onr capture.
As wo noarod Suvaunab, and
cbangod onr guard, tho ofiioor of the
now guard camo np, and wo -tuado
inquiries of him as to our dostiua
tion if we woro to be exchanged.
tlo ropliod by candidly stating that
wo wero to be pluood down on one
of tbo islands, uudor Cro of tbo Fad

bnvcrril men woro ehot, on onr
ronto from Siiv.inu ih to Charleston,
while trying to escape from tho c:r.
Wo caught sight of our flout in tbo
distanco, as wo parsed over tho
bridge loadiog to Charleston, and
onr hoarts thrilled with a iuvaj;o
kind of joy, whon wo heard tho
shell from our batteries, shriokiuf,'
over tho city. Wo termed thorn
Gilmoro's errand boyu. or Oiliuoro'tt
morning reports on t'.iu condition of
rcbuldom.
At last the cars camn to a halt in
tho stroots of Charleston, and citi.onn
nogroos, and soldiers, thronging tbo
stroots.poorod cuWoaaly ioto the cars
to got a look at tbo lanks. It op
pearcd to mo, then, that they woro a
baggorod, caro-worn look.
Tbo only- hopeful faoo of tbo group
was eomo old ucgiess, who had kept
fat and jolly on tho idea of Uuclo
