A paroled Tale. One of the paroled Yankees from the Libby prison, upon his return home, communicated freely with the New York Tribune, and among other statements made the following: "Jim Harrison, the actor, told one of our officers that Stoneman could easily have come into Richmond with three hundred men, done much damage, and carried off many spoils, beside liberating the prisoners. He said it was the narrowest escape the rebels have had during the war." Mr. James Harrison, if properly quoted was certainly very communicative to the paroled. The story is one that would be all the more improper to tell a Yankee prisoner for being believed. Three hundred men could not have done all this; but people who would tell Libby prisoners that they could, are not the proper persons to admit there.
