During tbe second week out on
parole, about thirty men belonging
to oue of our merehantmen, captur
ed just off New York harbor by a
rebol cruiser, where brought into
prison,
Iversoa parole 1 the officers, bat
turned the ooramon sailors into the
prison to take thoir lack with the
prisoners, The officers, who bad
enough to eat and good clothes,
thought outside life about tbe hard
est of anything tbey ever beard of,
and were ranoh surprised when I
told them I thought thoy ought not
to grumblo, when men inside the
tockade were atarviug.
Tito officers, Lieatonant Luke and
Lioutenant J. Long, were cap
tured while trying to escape from
Columbia, and were brought into
Florence prison about this time.
Lieutenant Iong, was captured in
tho same battle . with soma of my
oomrados, and as I was personally
acquainted with hint, I slyly gave
bim olothos, and went to the Colo-,
nel, at risk of being sent into tbe
stockade again, and interoeeded for
good quarters and food for thom,
whioh were given.
Tbe last of November, order
came from general Uardeo to oom
raeuce making out parole roll for
tbe aiok and wounded prisoner at
Florence, who were to be sont to

was to those men, at last tbey rea
lized that they wero going home,
aud with trembling, eager baads
tbey signed their parol of f-ee iomi
I was at work making oat these
parole rolls, wben a poor creator
oarae with tottering steps to the
table, sod tried to sign his name,
"You'll bave to write my name,

and reoogohwd. fa this shattered

while he1ed the p tor fallow to ray

The poor fulljw tried to thank me,
but broke down, crying like a child.
Ho was not very ooberent in his
speech. Ho could only say repeat
wily. "Do you think wo are- going

and loft him to resume my duties.

several of ray comra Jos out of ni ison

t be oontqutod ; or go back to the

Aftor q'lito a doliy in transporta

priuouers ready for transportation
on tho afternoon of tho next day.
The names were placed ou rolls,
giving rank, regimout.au I company,
after which the prinouers signed
their namas. or ma le their marks.
Tlieso rolls woro iu triplicate, nnd
each roll contained, I believe, about
thico hundred names, I.iko our
Army rolls, no erasures were allowed.
Whon tho order caino, I nuked tho
Adjutant if I could put my name
down on the rolls,
lie turuod to mo, and then walk
ed away, muttering soiuotliitig, and
I procoeded to put my name down
among the paroled nick ai I woua 1
od, I theu male out triplicates for
tho rolU, containing about tlnoj
hundred names each, and anxioiinly
awaited results.
An officer comraonood calling tho
rolls, each man stepping out into
line as tho names wore called. The
decisive moment at length arrivod.
My name was callod.
I laid d wn my pen, took my hat
and stood in line. ''Here! ere!"
exclaimed both the Adjutant and
Colooel, in chorus," what does this'
mean !" "I thought you told me,"
said I, with foiguod surprise, "tint
I could go homo with this squad,
.tdjutant."
Tbe Adjutant laughed, tbo Colono!
looked pleasaut, and I took courage
"Well," said Colonel Iverson, after
a pause, "you can go ;but you urnst
confess that it is a d d yankee
triok." When at last I loft, on my
way to tho cars, the Adjutaut said
"I'm glad for you 1 1 iutend you to

were placed on top, and inside of

day, and arrived at Charleston
about twelve o'clock next night. Tbe
