;.) ;.uurd to Gen. Sherman andhis corps com
nuttiden*, if it be so, the highest praise forthe
tu.llaiiliy and steadiness which could have
brought them safely out of perils, than which
none more imminent have ever hung about

i o have gone forward and got safely back on
Siicnuan’s route Into the very heart of the
rebellion. It Is nevertheless a disappoint
ment that an advantage thus reached could
not have bcenjimproved, but this the failure
of the other co-operating expeditions for.
Men arc wanted, these must be had. We
arc still busy in provinpwbat States owe the
government nothing. Meanwhile the great
gape iiTall our armies continue. Let there
be such a call for troops as will bring out
men enough to £ll the whole line, and give
adequate reserves. We arc proud to be
told that our own State has filled her quota,
and so of others, bnt we are impressed with
the conviction that the great demand of the
hour is not being met. The pressing neces
sity of the campaign is even now upon us,
and our recruits who should have had months
of drill, ore still in civil to be cangbt
ns well as taught. If it shall indeed prove
ttiat evils befall our armies from this delay,
the rcsiKmsibllity will be a fearful one for
those to whom it will come home.
}'.ebd piracies arc reported on the Chesa
peake Bay on steam and sail craft, plying oat
of Baltimore. The freebooters -put oat iu a
schooner and captured a small steamer and
two tugs that hare been'making trips be

robbed the captain of the steamer of hia
money, and released the boat after receiving
bonds in $20,000 each.
By the foreign advices, reported elsewhere,
the report is reaffirmed ol foreign interven
tion iu ourworin negotiation between France
uml England. There is a hint of speedy
pacification in the Banish question on the
jk'v basis proposed by England.
In tbo House of Lords, Earl Be Grey said
the Government did not Intend to send com
missioners to report on the operations of the
.American armies. But three officers hod
been sent to report on Iron-elads. For obvi
ous reasons, no officers were sent to the Con
federate States.
The foreign advices, on the strength of
Hamburg telegrams, say that the Prussians

inversion in Sherman's flavor. 5 *
The first rebel account of the* battle of
Glustec stated their loss at IS0; the next re
port increased it to 525. The third one states
that their force consisted of X 3 regiments o!
infantry, 4 battalions of cavalry, and 3 batte
ries of artillery, and their loss was 800 killed
and wounded.
When the truth comes out, it 'trill appear
that they numbered about 10,000 men, and
lost not less than 1,200 —or equal to that of
the Federal troops, who were only half their
strength in the battle.
As wc have before stated, the election in
New Hampshire tales place to-day. The
Union candld-tce arc Joseph A. Gilmore (the
present incumbent) for Governor, and P. C.
Cheney, of Peterborough, for Railroad Com
missioner. The Democratic candidates are
Edward W. Harrington, of Manchester, for
Governor, A. A. J. Vaughan of Laconia, for
Railroad Commissioner. Members of both
Houses of the Legislature, the Governor’s
Council, five in number, and various county
aud*town officers, all of whom are elected
for only one year, are to be voted for.
An explanation comes from Washington,
given in our special dispatch, tending to re*
lieve Gen. Meade from the serious imputa
tion resting upon him in relation to the Get
tysburg battle, It is now stated that the
ordcrissued by him for a retreat, was merely
for a movement to what he believed to be a
stronger position, a little in the rear of the
town, but that arriving at the place and find
ing how strongly onr army was posted, he
recalled the order. If this is all of it Senator
Wilkinson has put his foot in it.
Special Dispatch to the Chicago Times. •
CutomKart, MarcbS, I*6l,
A great interest is felt in the radical German con
ventiou to nominate Fremont, which is to meet in
Cleveland on the 10th of May. Prom that Conven
tion Important results are anticipated, as this radi
cal German element constitutes so huge a propor
tion of the Republican party.
This dispatch Is sent by a disciple of the
traitor Vallondigham, a drunken attache of
the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Of course the secession readers of the
Fire-ln-thc-rcar concern would be hugely de
lighted 11 the “radicalGormans" should do
so absurd a thing as to nominate a candidate
fbr President in the Cleveland Con
vention. AU the Copperheads may
roll the anticipated action of the Germans
like a sweet morsel under their tongues, but
U will turn to ashes in their mouths. The
Germane arc not going to play the part of
cat’s paws for the copperheads. Should a
few mad men go to the extreme of nomlnatr
ing candidates, their ticket will not poll five
thousand votes in the United States. The
Republican Germans as a body will give the
nominees of the Baltimore Convention a cor
dial and united support The copperheads
may as well pul that in their pipes and
smoke it.
A Deserteras is a Deserter,
Sonic men make money by enlisting, get
ting the bounty and deserting, and repeating
the operation.* A Wisconsin Iricnd relates
the following case in point: A big strap
ping fellow named George Hill, a brakeman
on the Milwaukee and Mississippi railroad,
enlisted Into Col Starkweathers Ist Wiscon
sin regiment. Not Jong afterwards be man
aged to obtain a discharge on some lying
pretext or other, and came back to Milwau
kee, where he enlisted into the 34th Wiscon
sin, receiving $l5O bounty. He deserted a
short distance beyond Louisville, with five
others, whom he inveigled off with him. He
made his way East, and in the course of a
few months enlisted into two regiments, get
ting bounty from each and deserting at the
first opportunity. He remained East from
September, 'O2, to January, '63, when he
skedaddled to Fort.Wayne, where he became
a brakeman on the Ft W. and Toledo Kail
road. lu Toledo be was arrested last Jnly
-and taken to Columbus, Ohio. He managed
to get off by making the officers believe that
he had been regularly discharged, which he
succecdedin doing by altering hU discharge
from the Ist to'the 34th Wis. The trick was
discovered and he was again arrested and sent
down the Mississippi river to Memphis. Be
-igpin escaped, and went to eastern Indiana,
where be was found and arrested and sent to
Chattanooga, where his regiment then was,
sand another time escaped. He made his way
to New Jersey, where be enlisted, got the

WiiiAiro's Horst, WasniKOTOjf, D. C., I
March S, 16C4. {
lion. F. W. Kellogg, Bouse Committee on Military
Bear Sir: Agreeable to your request, I have tbe
honor to report the following facts in relation to
the treatment of our officers and men by the rebel
authorities: . .. . ,
It is imjttsslble for me to give you an account of
all the acts of barbarity, inhumanity and had faith
I have witnessed during my captivity; bet 1 will
endeavor to mention each Instances as will give
you as correct an Idea of the true condition of our
men as possible.
On the £d of May last near Borne, Georgia, my
command having become so reduced by hard fight
ing and marching, daring the seven dars previous,
that it was evident to mo that we (about fifteen
hundred officers and men) would fall into the hands
of the enemy, and, after holding a council of war
with ray regimental commanders, it was decided
to capitulate, and thus to secure the best terms
possible for the command as a condition of sur
render. In accordance with this decision I met the
rebel commander, Gen. Forrest, under a flag of
truce, when o stipulation was entered into between
hi™ and myself, whereby it was agreed that my
command should enrrender as prisoners of war, on
the following conditions, to-wit:
1. Bad: regiment should be permitted to retain
Ua colors.
2. The officers to retain their side arms.
8. Both officers and men were to retain their ha
vcraacks, knapsacks and blankets; and all private
property of every description was to be respected
ana retained by the owner.
The above terms were in a measure respected
while we remained with General Forrest; bat no
sooner wore we turned over to the rebel author!-
tic* a eyrtem of robbing commenced which
soon relievedus ofeverythlngvalnablc in our pos
session. -The blanket*, haversacks. and knapsacks
■were taken fromiav men at Atlanta. They were
also robbed of neanrkll their money, and most of
them loot their overcoats ot the above named place.
Here, too, the colors and side arms were taken
from ns. My men were turned into an enclosure
without shelter of any kind, destitute o J blankets
and overcoats, je I ’ ave before stated, and kept nn
der gaud for four days, daring which time a most
disagreeable cold storm prevailed; after which they
were sent forward to Richmond and soon ex
Mt officers were sent to Richmond, after a slay
of anont ten days in Atlanta, pn oar arrival at the
rebel capital we were all searched separately, and
all moneys found la otzr possession were token from
n*. For a lew days thereafter wc were allowed to
draw emaP stuns of our money for the purposed
purchasing food. But this privilege was soon de
nied us.
I then asked and obtained permission from tbe
rebel authorities for the officers to send home for
money, clothing and provisions. The clothing and
provisions were generally delivered to the panlee
ordering them, providing the package or bar con
taining them was not broken open and rilled ol its
content* before it reached its destination, which
was frequently the case; but in no case within my
knowledge has tbe money been delivered to tbe
owner. The retention of this money, after express
lv agreeing to deliver it. Is an act of perfidy that
beggars description. 1 have repeatedly called tbe
attention of the rebel authorities to the terms of
my surrender, and demanded that Us provisions bo
complied with; but General Winder, command
ant of the prisoners, took from me the stipulations
signed by Gen. Forrest which he still retains, and
refused to be governed Iw Its provisions, My offi
cers, together with something near one thousand
other United States officers, are confined in a large
warehouse bunding, with an average space of about
twenty-five feet square to each man. This includes
all room for washing, cooking, eating, sleeping and
exercising. Thcv have no banka, chairs or ecats
of: any kind furnished them, consequently they
both sit and sleep on the floor. Tbe windows of
the bdildlng were entirely open until about the
middle of December last, when pieces of canvass
were furnished for the purpose or closing them to
keep the cold out: but, as this would leave us in
the dark, we were compelled to leave a portion of
ihem open and endnre thn cold.
£lanv of the officers were entirely destitute of
blankets until oar government sent a quantity to
u* in the forepart ©l the winter. The supply of
blankets is now exhausted, and officers who have
been captured during tbe last six weeks have none
furnished them.
Tbe rations famished both officers and men by
the rebels consist of about one pound of com
bread, made from unboiled meal, and one-fourth of
a pound of poor fresh meat, per day. The meat
has been issued to tbe prisoners but about half the
time since the first of December last. In addition
to tbe rations of bread and meat as above stated,
the prisoners draw about two quarts of rice to one
hundred men. There is n sufficient quantity of
salt furnished, and a very small quantity of vine
gar, I wDI here remark that, in a few instances,
say rfx or eight times at most, a small quantity of
fweet potatoes has been issued instead of the ra
tions of meat.
The above is tbe sum total of tbe rations issued
to our officers and men now prisoners of war.
The condition of our unfortunate enlisted men,
now in the hands of the enemy, is much worse
than that of tbe officers. From early Jn May last,
when 1 arrived in Richmond, to about tbe let Of
December, all the enlisted men were taken to what
is called Belle Island, and turned into an Indosurc
like soimany cattle in a slaucbicrpen- Very few
of them had tents; or shelter of any kind, and the
few tents furnished were so poor and leaky as to
render them but little better than none.
All tbe prisoners arc taken to Libby when they
first arrive la Richmond, for tbe purpose of count
ing them and enrolling their names; consequently,
I bad a fair chance to see their condition when
they arrived. Felly one-half the prisoners taken
since Mar last were robbed by their captors of their
shoes, and nearly all were robbetof their overcoats,
blankets and hvereacks. At IcasTone-third of them
bad been compelled to trade their pants and blouses
for mere rags that would scarcely hide their naked
ness. Very many of them were entirely barehead
ed, and not a few. as late as the middle of Decem
ber, were brought in who had nothing on but a pair
of old ragged pants and a shirt, being bareheaded,
barefooted, and without a blouse, overcoat or
“fiSfc eccn hundreds of our men taken to the
hospital thus dad, and In a dying condition. 1
bare frequentiv visited the hospital, and have con
versed with large numbers of dying men, brought
there from the Island, who assured me that they
had been compelled to lie out in the open air, with
out anv medical attendance, though for several
days thcv had been unable to walk. Though desti
tute of anything like quarters, and nearly naked du
ring the cold, biormv and chilly fall season, the first
and chief complaint of all those I saw and talked
with was on account of an insufficient quantity of
food. I will here remark that in no instance have
tbe rebel authorities furnished clothing or blankets
to our men. Daring the winter large numbers of
our men were frozen. 1 beard one of the rebel sur
geons In charge ear that there were over twenty of
our men who would have to suffer amputation from
the effects of frost. This was I ‘before the coldest
weather had commenced.
Some time lu the fore part of December a portion
of our men were removed from the island to some
Ir.rpe buildings, where thev were more comfortably
quartered: hat there has been no time since May
ust but what more or less men hare been kept on
the island, in the open air. and withonrblankela or
overcoats. It is a common thine for the rebels to
keep our men for several days without food.' This
was particularly the case with a portion of the Get*
tysburp prisoners. Some went ns long as six days
without food, and were compelled to march daring
the time. The officer* captured at Chlckamauga
assure me that they and their men were robbed oi
everything. Many of them lost their coats, bats
and boots as soon as captured, and then were nearly
starred and frozen.
1 trust von will pardon me for the tedious length
of this communication. Ifyou will bear with me I
will only call your attention to a few of the out
rages practiced on our officers and men In the pri
son discipline. Under the building known as Lib
by prison is a large cellar, to which they have seve
ral cells partitioned off. Several of them are with
out any ngbhjmt some have windows below the
pavement. These cells are nsed for the purpose of
confining securely such of the prisoners as the au
thorities may fear will attempt to escape, as well as
such as mav chance to offend some one of themany
petty official and prison attaches. Some of oar
unfortunate men are continually confined in these
fijthv boles on one pretext or another. It is the
uniform practice to feed any and all persons sent
to these cells on bread and water only. Lieutenant
Heed, ofthe Third Ohio Volunteer*, was thrown
into one of these cells and kept there for fortr-empt
hours, without anything to oat or drink during toe
time. He was not allowed any blankets nor his
overcoat. The weather wa* very damp and cold,
andhealthai time was suffering from a most se
vere wound to the hip. . ; _ . .
On the night of the 19th of December 1 received
a communication purporting to come from one to
amhoritv, stating that for one hundred dollars to
greenbacks and two silver watches myself aim my
triend would be permitted to pass the guard. Some
days previous to this one of my officers succeeded
in Tnwirinp hi a escape In this way, and although I
was not without apprehension that It was a trap,
nevertheless I resolved to try the experiment.
Accordingly Capt. B, C. G. Heed, of the 8d Ohio,
and avseJr went to the designated place at the ap
pointed boor, where we were assured that Uwasau
right. We complied with the terms and passed
out: but no sooner were we outside the guard
lints than Llcnt- La Touche, the Adjutant of the
prison, and seven men sprang ont from a concealed
place and commenced firing upon us without halt
ing us. Wc were unarmed and could do nothing
but surrender. We were taken back to the
prifou, put in irons end thrown into one of those
filthy holts called cells, where we were kept for
thret weeks on bread and water. The weatherwns
very cold during the time, and we nearly perished-
There was a large amount of Hi th to the cell, which
1 could not Induce them to remove, nor could I get
them to penult me to remove it. I also asked for a
box to sit on, of which there waa a large amber In
the cells. Bnj everything was denied me. At the
time 1 was taken to the cell there were six of our
men confined in one of these cells for attempting to
escape. They had been there for six days without
blankets, and two of them were verv sick. They
were related at the end of seven days of their con
I might continue toenumcratc instances of a sim
ilar character, but these will answer to give yon an
Idea of what Is dally taking place. 1 cannot de
scribe to you the loathsome filthiness of these
cells. They arelnfcrted with an Innumerable num
ber of rats and mice, and they have no mark of
having been cleaned since they were first built. It
is seedless for me to say that no man can survive a
long confinement lu a place of this kind: and al
though 1 am acquainted with several persona who
have I>ccn confined there, 1 do not know one who
can now be called a well man.
As I have before remarked. It Is impossible for
me to enumerate in this communication bat a few
of the many acts ot barbarity which have come un
der my notice, though I have endeavored to giro a
correct conclusion relative to the treatment our un
fortunate men arc receiving at the hands of the
Inhuman people with whom wc are at war. They
scan lost to every principle of humanity, and it fe
mv candid opinion that their brutality to our pris
oners is only measured by thelr fcars.

Washington, March s.—The following Informa
tion will be a sufficient response to many Inquiries
which have been made upon the subject.
Seven-thirty notes, if sent to the Treasury Dc-
E aliment for redemption, are paid, the principal In
iwful money and the interest in coin.
Tbev are, however, exchangeable nt any time be
fore of at maturity for bonds falling due in 1881, the
Srindpal and interest of which are payable In com.
'one of said bonds are of less denomination than
SSOO. The notes are therefore convertible only
when presented In sums of S3OO, or the multiples,
in accordance with the act of Angust, 1661.
When at date of convcrelon the accrued interest
on the 7-30 notes exceeds the accrued Interest of
the bonds, the bonds are issued, if coupon, with
TUI coupons, and if registered, bearing interest
from Jan. 1, or July 1, next preceding the conver
sion. The balance of interest is paid In coin.
When at date of conversion the accrued
interest on the six per cent bonds ex
ceeds that on the 7-80 notes, the interest due on the
notes is paid in coin, and the bonds are issued, if
coupons, with the first coupon stamped with the
date of conversion, or if rejnstered. with sold dale
on their faces, it however, parties desire the
bonds to be issued with fall coupons, ou drawing a
fall half-vcar’s interest, they can deposit the bal
ance ot interest (If any) In coin with any Assistant
Treasurer of the United Slates, and forward his
. original certificate of deposit with the notes sent
' for conversion. The 7-30 notes should be sent to
the Treasury Department endorsed “pay to the
Secretary of the Treasury 11 for redemption, with
the signature of the party in whose name they are
to be converted. The tight to exchange United i
States notes issued under acts of Fob. 2% 1862. and
Jnlv 1,1662, ceased July 1,18:3, as per act of March

upon the correctness of the information of the ar
rival of Col. Dahlgren in our lines at Fort Monroe.

Darlag Copperhead Outrage* and
[From the Springfield Journal.]
"Paris, in Edgar county, seema destined to aa un
enviable notoriety as the rendezvous of unprinci
pled and ignorant bands of copperheads and their
fellow traitors from the South,' and the theatre of
their outrageous proceedings. Union men, and
there arc many of them good and true, have suffer
ed much born the miserable traitor® under the
lead of unprincipled men.
We learn from a gentleman from that section,
that for some time past the copperheads In that
vicinity have made dire threats against the sol
diers when the veteran regiments should return,
and that they “would clean them out,” bat upon
mature consideration concluded to postpone the
matter until about the time the soldiers were to
leave. These threats were well known to the sol
diers* and consequently they have been on their
guard and ready for the traitors.
It is reported that upon the plea of protecting the
vfilainons Copperhead sheet, tho Times, from the
soldiers, Amos Green has been etorlng arms in the
office. It is also said that they had arms stored in a
bam, which they called an arsenal, belonging to the
Trmont House, kept by one Becker. On Saturday
last, about 25 or 30 Copperheads arrived in town
and took possession of the barn. The fret became
known to a number of tho veterans belonging to
the C6th and 12lh regiments who had gathered
there preparatory to leaving for the South, and
tbey determined to ascertain If arms were stored
there, etc. On arriving near the bam, a man
named Kennedy fired upon them, which was re
turned bv the eoldicre, wounding him severely.
At this Stage of the proceedings Mark Boatman .
of the 12th inCmtry, approached Kennedy who
begged him not to shoot as he was already
wounded: upon which Boatman dropped Wsre
volver to his side, when Kennedy shot him, the
ball taking effect in the shoulder, passing down
wards and inflicting a serious wound. He also
fired at and wounded Lem’l Trowbridge, of the 68th
Infantry, in the wrist, after he had begged Trow
bridge not to shoot him, as be was already nearly
killed. After tho shooting of Trowbridge tho sol
diers fired and Kennedy fell pierced with six or
eight bullets. Previous to Kennedy’s being shot,
the Copperheads formed across the street to pro
tect their “arsenal,” hnt immediately left In
wagons and on horseback, in a great hurry, the
soldiers giving them a parting salnte, which,
it Is’thocght, must have wounded some of them.
Our Informant states that when the first grin* was
fired, and the “ball opened,” as the miserable trai
tors called it, seven of them whose names are well -
known to the citizens, rode ont of Green’s barn,
and started post haste for tho country to inform
their copperhead friends, and obtain assistance,
hnt had not returned when onr informant leu. It
• Is feared that after the soldiers have left, the bush
whackers mav return and attuck.tbe town, but the
citizens, It is* said, are preparing to protect them
selves. , ~
Since writing the above, wc have seen a gentle
man who left Paris yesterday morning, and matters
were quiet at that time. It is thought that Boat
man cannot recover.
Interesting Account of It* Operations
and Its Retreat.
[Correspondence of the Bloomington Pantograph.]
Caxp 3d Illinois Cavalrx, [
GrasfANTOWK, Tenn., Feb. 27. f
For the first time in seventeen days, I take my
pen in hand for the purpose briefly to inform yon
of my whereabouts and condition. On the 10th
in«tant, we set out from Collierville aud returned
here yesterday about 13 m. We went down through
Marshal, Tippah, and Chickasaw counties, Mias.,
to West Point, on tho Ohio and Mobile railroad,
from which point we commenced retreating on
Sunday last. Slat, with from 2,000 to 3,000
contrabands, all mounted on horses, and
mules—taken with them—and lots of other
horses and mules that had been taken We
were attacked by the rebel* under Lee, Forrest,
and Chalmers: held them in check and pushed on
our contraband and mole train, night and day, un
til we finally came through, though with conside
rable loss oimen and animals. The first attack
noon us after we begun onr retreat, was at Okolo
nL where wo suffered onr greatest loss of men and
the loss of five howitzers. The retreat that day
f22d Inst.) was followed np, and we moved, under
cover of the night, toward Pontotoc. That move
ment was the most picturesque and grotesque that
I ever beheld. Picture to yourself, Itafon can, a
living, moving mass of men. negroes, mules and
horses, of 4.000 or 5,000, an en masse, literally
jammed, huddled and crowded Into the smallest
possible space, night setting In, artillery and
small anna booming behind ns; cavalry all aronnd
and ahead, moving on. on, on over fences, through
Adds andbrnsh, over hills and across mud holes,
streams and bridges, and still on, on Into the night,
' until the moon rises on the scone and shows ns
some of the outlines of this , living panorama.
Coifid that scene be transferred to canvass. It would
be worth beholding.-1 forgot to say that In this
crowd were a lot of prisoners, too, once ortwice
attempting to escape, followed by the swift report
ol the revolver, once with hitter consequences to
the escaping prisoners,.
I have not time to pursue the plctnre further.
Out raid has been & great success—aa much so, y
perhaps, as any that has been made during the
war, though not so long. Millions of bushels of
com have been destroyed, thousands of miles of
fence and other property, inclodins cotton gins,
buildings, etc., although bunnngballdlngs was not
permitted In general. We hare hadmost excellent
weather, pretty good roads, plenty to eat, with the
exception of a day or two at the end of onr expedi
tion, lorage to. We have probably devoured 50,-
000 hams, terns egg?, chickens, turkeys, milk and
butter by wholesale, and such etceteras as can be
found in so rich a country as we have passed
through. In Chickasaw country we found come
fine prairie country equal to or belter than that of
Illinois. / The season was quite advanced—peas
and onions growing—young calves, pigs and chick
en* flourishing, as with ns at the North lu April
or May.
