Captain Morgan was si fortunate a? t" ob tain a transfer to Johnston's Island, whence, alter being carried to Point Lookout, he was exchanged. He says thu when 44 hs got into Reast Butler's hands he felt as if be had been translated to Paradise." Is there any authority in Riehmoud that w ill cr-a.k a thumb to save these men, who are not only fle-h of our JJesh, but the defend ers of those in this capital, who, not exactly disowning them, undertake the base and cow ardly pretence of ignoring their fate?. What is the Confederate definition of re taliation?" Captain Morgan says that on his way dewn the bay to Fortress Monroe he met Colonel Straight that this famous 44 hos tage" was fat and rubicund ; that he spoke freely of his prison eiperienc-i in Richmond, and com plained only that he had to eat corn bread. This appeared to be the extent of his sufferings, and the. limit of Confederate re taliation. In Philadelphia, on the 16th, the 44 minis ter " appointed to take charge of all the Methodic -churches in the city of Ne-w Or leans was publicly presented with a Yankee flag. Iu his speech accepting it he declared that he was for subjugation or 44 war forever." Major The. D. Armary and Lieu tr.
