Colonel WooDCurr, lha gallant Ken tuckian, wholias lately been'exchange d after nina months imprisonment in Bich tnond, gave the following account of the inhuman treatment he and his fellow prisoners received" from the Rebels in Virginia. Contrast this with the hunfane treatment invariably extended to rebel prisoners by our armies. We were carried to the rear, f6 Charles townj Virginia, where r were waited upon by J:z. Wise ssd staff, -r.d othf r ollicers of his command, whose language and conversation was anything but agreeable. Tho place we occupied was continually surrounded by an excited populace, ana the barrels of whisky in time wcro rolled out in the street, and the heads knocked in by order of tho General, no doubt to prevent mob law from dealing with us, under that addi tional excitement. From hero to Rich mond we wcjo subject to insult, threats and annoying curiosity. On the way they heard of the battle of Manassas, which set the peoplo wild, and gave them the assurance that they would at once occupy Washington, New York, and Philadelphia, and establish tho suprema cy of the South'. At Richmond we were thrust into a tobacco factory, where wo found some forty officers, taken at Manassas, the lloor of which you can imagine ws none of tho cleanest, yet it was our bed. No blankets or other article to shield ua from the filth, with a block of wood for our pillow, and a good consciensce for feath ers. Neither were we furnished with bench, chair, table, knife, fork, cup, plate or ppoon. Our food, which consisted of beef, bread and water, was brought to us in tubs and buckets, and you could help yourself as best you might. In these crowded rooms we ate, slept and had our exercise, and for want of facilities for cleanliness, many having but one suit of clothes, it was not astonishing that ver min predominated to an alarming extent and of several varieties. The commandant of the post, a Lieut. Todd, and his coadjutor, Lieut. Withers, were tminently qualified for their posi tions, for one would certainly suppose from their acts that they had been born in obscurity, nursed in depravity, and educated ia barbarism; and with the ignorance of their birth, the vices of their nurse, and the wanton cruelty of their education, fit subjects to carry out the orders of their more infamous General Winder, a hero whose father deserted his country's flag at Bladensburg, and whose worthy son was perpetuating the history of his family on the unfortunate patriots of his native land. We were much an noyed by the visits of men whose object seemed only to b insult and bravado. Our prison was constantly surrounded by a curious crowd, who laughed, jeered and howled at us. The sentries carefully watched tho windows, that, if a Yankee head dared to become visible, they might have a shot at it, and several were thus killed. Ollicers were handcufled as sui ted tho whim or fancy of our masters. A reverend gentlemen, Mr. Burrows, fre quently came to insult and taunt us. Members of their Congress visited us to inform us that we were fit subjects to be hung. The newspapers urged that we should be put to work at trades, and such as had none should bo made to dig coal in the surrounding pits. The poor wounded were placed also in a tobacco factory, without medicines, ins'ruments, or any appliances, where they might be cared for, when in agony of mind and body, wiih tho worms festering and feed ing in their undressed wounds, lliey Builercd intensely, not through the Unit of our own surgeons, for they did all they could w ith the means in their power to allay their sufienng. 1 hese poof K-l lows, when on the verge of eternity, were even denied the consolation that relij'ion eives, though our own chaplain were ever ready I'o ministe r to them, aud when dead they were carted away a tfogs, and interred in the negro ccuicterifs. Those who should be termed women visited no sick ot ours, iliere was no soft hand tosmoothe the pillow or bathe the fevered brow; no nurse to prepare the delicate food, but only their anathemas reached them through barred windows, Avhilethey were soothed with t lie rou care of comrades, and fed on tho rough food the prison furnished. Such exhibi tionsof crucify as were manifested there make the heart sick, the numerous liici dents of which wo.ild fill volumes, and give such an insight of despotism as would even make tyrants tremble. From Ju re we were Bent to Charleston S. C. On the way for three days, wo were kept confined in crowded cars, with sn k'aiid wounded, m which we were re quired to remain wh"'it rest and with but little food. Paraded through nunicr ous little- towns on our passage, insulted by incn and women tho latter much the worst surrounded by crow s hoot in and taunting us, but unheeding, w prouoiy passed on, regardless ot tue la iiatio'exhihitions, and felt that we weio BuHVriiig in the glorious cause of libcity and l.'nioii. Arrived in Charleston, vu Were placed in the common jail, without the slightest lu-ci-ssaj-y comfort; thciice taken I" ( ' a 1 i 1'inckiicr, wc win- u :ain returned to jail, where Colonel Corcoran, Colonel Wilcox, myself Lieutent Colonel NefT, and Major Potter were, on the l'JIh of November, placed in condemned cells as common felons, to await execution. It is imjiossible to describe the feelings in this episode of our career. Locked with in separate cells, tho gallows ever visiblo before us, the papers desiring to have us hung every morning before breakfast, and tho thousand little things wo were made to suffer, for nearly three months, during which, a terrible fire rased around us, and by the Divine hand of Providence we were saved. Removed from hero to Columbia, S. C, again incarcerated in a crowded Jail, we remaihed until the 25th February, when we were again removed to Richmond for f xchanga, and incarce rated in a tobacco factory. From day to day were we fed with the hope of a speedy release, but it did not come, and two weeks before I left wo were removed to a warehouse, heretofore used for pork and bacon, where sixty officers aud men confined on a lloor 3." by GO feet, tho floors greasy, salty and damp, from which there was no exit for exercise tlie men, some 2"i0 in all, on tho upper lloors, and only three windows for light and air. ' From tho l'bila-leilfbi Enquirer. AToocliIna Letter fromaltobel . Soldier. The following letter is from a Mary land gentleman now serving in the Con federate army. It is addressed to a lady in Philadelphia. The writer was a young man of promise, whose friends are deeply grieved at tho wreck which trea son has madc'of his prospects. The recipi ent being loyal to tho Union, has no hes itation in making public whatever she earns respecting the position of tho reb els believing that neither friendship nor feeling should stand in the way of duty: .i ' i Hospital C. S. A., Richmond, Va, March Cist, 18G2, I wrote you some months ago, my dear and I then thought, as I said for ho last time. But somehow, notwith standing your well known scorn for one lolduig a position, voluntarily assumed, in w bat you call tho rebel ranks, despite your persistent silence when a kind word from you would bo treasured be yond price in tho face of all these, I again write to you. Had health and prosperity continued with me, perhaps I might have had strength to keep my res olution to maintain silence toward one who I fear will never forgive me for en tering the Confederate service : but the heading of my letter will tell you that I am in that saddest of all places, a mili tary hospital. The regiment to which I belong was, with others, at Centervillo during tho atter portion of the winter, where wo were most comfortably quartered and well provided. We formed a part of Ma gruder's division in which are many Ma rylanders. Several camo from the vicini- ty ot my uear out uome, mai spoi which 1 so tenderly loved, and ot whoso beautv I was so proud. Soldier as I am C , I weep at the recollection of the lappy, innocent hours passed in that lear home ; and littls did I think when I first described its charms to you that the time was rapidly approaching when I should bo exiled from it and from you But I was telling you I found many of my former neighbors here, and thrown ia such close contact with many mutual sympathies and memories, we have been like brothers to each ofher. Constant correspondence has been kept up with the dear ones in Maryland, and when one received a letter it contained good news for us all. Lately, we found it expedient to retire beforo the advancing Federal forces, in order to strengthen Richmond. In a skirmish I received a wound in the side, which is very painful, and may possibly prove fatal. 1 was tarried away by my comrades, and brought with them all the way to Richmond. All was done irmy relief that circumstances would permit, yet I suffered terriblyjduring the journey, hut before I reached this place thicoii- scioipncss relieved my anony. I receive every attention of which the ireumsf ances around me will admit; but the surgeons liav more to do than they are able to perform thoroughly. This, and all the hospitals, aro crowded with tho sick and wounded. Medicines are scarce, and, indeed, wc are entirely des titute of several drugs which are liiot necessary to us. There is also a lack of surgical instruments, and a need of pro per nurses. We have very few regularly trained nurses, most of the attention be ing bestowed' by convalescent soldiers. This makes sorry work; it takes a lit t lo practice to accustom a man in gm-h duties, and by the time he has a slight knowl edge of the work, his health is restored, oadhe i returne d to his regiment, for the South needs all her sons in this hour of peril. Tho ladies attempted to attend the su k, nrd really aid as far as possible; but lack of e xperience and want of in rve to hear the unpleasant si 'hts of hospital life soon drives most of tlniii away With all these deprivations, the pains of sii kncns and the clanger of wounds arc ; re at! v enhanced. April 1st, 102 IVrofoyesterdayun til my strength utterly failed, and now I resume my pen, hoping to be able to fin ish tliis epistle, for one of my cc'mrades leaves this place to-morrow and has prom ed to dispatch this for me. I told you yesterday how poorly our sufTcrir.g soldiers were attended. , Np doubt humanity made you sorrow that even rebels suffered so. But, C , what think you of the fate of the sick and wounded prisoners among us ? They aro cared for, of course; but our surgeons naturally seek tirst to preserve the lives of their own men; and what nurse in the Southern ConfWlerey but vrculd rather watch beside one of their own suf ferers than by one whom they must con sider an invader? I state the fact as mildly as possible, for I know that in your estimation thee invaders are tho heroes and martyrs of a righteous cause. I would not refer to their position among us, bnt knowing tho resources of the Fed eral Government, I wondc why she fails to send relief to the sufferers in our midst? Was there no one who so loved the Union that ho or she would como even as a prisoner to attend to your wounded here ? I know your Govern ment proposed sending Commissioners here for tho purpose, but the Codfederacy refused to accept them, yet much might bo done by individuals. Sinco I have lain here, surrounded by suffering and death, I have thought much of the causes of all this sorrow and des olation; and I am convinced that we of tho South had better borne far greater wrongs than we endured, or feared, than to have brought such ruin on our coun try. In tho North they fell us compara tive prosperity' reigns; but in Virginia whole villages lie in ashes; homes are desolated, sons, husbands and fathers lio in untimely, graves; poverty invades homes whero hitherto his presence was undreamed of; servants, loved and trust ed, prove faithless. All tho ties of life are severed, and, disowned and unrecog nized by her si6tcr nations, the Confede racy struggles bravely, but I fear vainly, ior ucr existence, before a foe whose pow er she cannot measure. We might possibly overcome the im mense army already brought against us, lor though inferior in point of numbers. men fight desperately in situations like ours; but were these repelled, who knows what countless hosts would stvrintr to arms trom the teeming population ot tho North? I fear our cause is hopeless, and this feeling dispirits our army, and pal sies them on tho battlefield. Some are willing to snrrender and make the best terms they can, while others swear to fight until death. Our official councils aro divided. Some would stand bravely and conquer or die, others insist on cau tion; and this extreme prudence keeps us retreating until wo are ashamed. But trust me our army will yet make a des perate stand and prove, despite fur late reverses, that we are not cowards. As for me, C , I may not leave this place alive; for though I am so much better than I have been, the doctor tells mo that danger is not yet past, and that if I persist in cxertihg myself as I am now doing, in writing this long letter, fever may superveno and, result fatally. Let it come I have no wish to live to seo the South subdued, and through fu ture years to bo scorned as a traitor. If I recover, the moment I can wield my word I will return to my post, and at least clio a man. I do not say this in boasting or defiance, for I really regret that I ever participated in rebellion; but I have done it and cannot retract with honor. Therefore, if our cause falls, I hope to fall with it. Tlie time is short. Tho Federal army is moving fast upon us. The final strug gle cannot be far distant. It may be tlie last lime I can ask it: will you not send a few lines; not to tho Confederate sol nicr, or rebel, if you will call me so; nor even to tno former friend; but to a siek aud suffering man who longs to know you have still some sympathy for him Cotton Planting in Illinois. Itis stated by members of Congress from Illi nois that cotton will be very extensively planted in that .Statu this season. 1 he experiment has been begun by the Illi nois Central Kauroad Company prepar ing two thousand acres for this purpose, and other landowner are making ar rangements to plant 1 arize quantities of Ktiitucl; y cotton seed. ' ' Shootino.- An air. Our torumunif y was greatl v .excited on Monday by (hi re port that a young lady had that morn ing shot her father with a pistol. The report, strange as it may appear, is true.
