Many of us worked cheerfully for a long time in toting lumber half a mile and building a church and hospital for the use of prisoners.

( we sometimes heard a rumor that cheered I uV or caught a word from some of our en- j emies that caused a gleam of sunshine and pleasure. Few of tho many prisoners "gave way" (and to this I attribute the fact that the mortality was not greater, shocking though the number of death were), but generally tried to make the lingering hours pass lightly. "We had a debating club and the atrical performances, nil improvised and cotton up by ourselves ! Every bone, horn, braes tack, bit of tin, j wire or copper were appropriated to some purpose. Bushels of rings, pins, buttons, chains, charms and puzzles were'patiently wrought out of such crude material ; and j many of such articles would have reflected credit upon the most skillful artisan or jewe lcr, in a shop supplied with all requi site tools and materials for such work. A fan was made by a prisoner which sold for forty dollar?, and when not stolen from us ("Uiked'?) we could always find ready sale among the garrison for these things. Ah l ust the day of my deliverence came ; a little money that I had made, some trin kets, etc., bought me out money would bring anybody out if properly invested.

And as I write of I here, things a name oocms never to be forgotten by a Dela ware prisoner. "Old Hike" we cnlled him his real nam i was Adam or Adams, a Vermont y.mk who was first fent to the prison as a convict--his crime being that he vns the (irst man to reach Washington Citv after thy bull Hun battle. But by his shrewdness ami meanness he had been promoted and now held some rank in the service ; was a sort of supervisor over ev erything and devil's agent in general a our prison. No meant r or more utterly despicable being ever cursed the earth with his pres ence. "Hike out ! li ke out ! you d d rebel sons of b !" was his command on all occasions. Ouce a week lie would 'hike us to search our persons, bunks and clo:'iing for contraband articles, and whack ! would come his heavy stick on the persoii of some poor sick prisoner who was not able to move promptly. From 400 to 900 North Carolinians were confined (to themselves as were the prisoners from otmr States) iu a room 19 x GO feet, with bunks, three tiers, on either side, heads to the wall, feet to centre, with a pa-i.-ae, of course lmivow, between.

Being the last to leave, I found that some one h id appropriated my canteen life pre servers. So I s .rrowi'ul'y crpt b ack to : my bunk, but listening at a crack I could , heir shouts of recognition and encourage ment away out, on the bay, and to my sur prise I learned that while we were working for our escape a number of ofTWrs con fined in a separate put of the prison, and with whom we had held no communication, had been doing the same thing, and they with many of their men were out together on the water. Then I was into a Rch-rae to build a boat, which we accomplished by means of knife-saws and screws ; but just as we had got it finished (and at best it could not have carrie 1 moiv than eight men) in came old Hike with a guard, tore up the floor, found and destroyed our boat.

High feeding makes rich manures, and consequently large crops. How to produce a large snp pl of good forage with a small outlay of labor or money is therefore one of the most important questions to the intelli gent farmer.
