oner of war, who for long months patiently endured the punishment and indignities heaped upon him by his inferiors. Day after day suffering the pangs of hunger. All this, and the privilege waiting him of taking the oath and going home any day he chose. There was simply no limit to his patient loyalty. There was nothing like it. J. B. West, Ex-O. S. Co. B., Second Ky. Cav., C. S. A. Nashville, Tenn. December 14, 1861.-John Hanson Thomas, William Harrison, Charles H. Pitts, and S. Teakle Wallis were, for their opinion's sake, confined in a room darkened with venetian shutters fastened outside with iron bars, and there were only about twenty-two to forty-four inches over the doors by which light came into their rooms. They were never allowed out for a moment for two weeks, and the impure air was stifling, though they used disinfectants. They were after this sent to Fort Lafayette, where they were turned into a casemate with a brick floor, with no other furniture than guns an
August 3. At Baltimore, Md., this morning, Sergeants Wallis and Cook, with Officer James Pryor, of the Middle District Police, went on board the steamer George Weems, at her wharf foot of Frederick street, and on her leaving for the usual trip to various landing places on the Patuxent River, proceeded in her as far as Fort McHenry wharf, where they directed Captain Weems to stop. A search of the steamer was here made, resulting in the discovery of concealed arms and ammunition in various out-of-the-way places in the hold. Immediately under the upper deck, between the lower deck and the skylight, were found 200 new Colt's patent revolvers, done up singly in paper. In the aft part of the hold the officers found a barrel in which rubbish had been placed for several months. Concealed in the rubbish was a valise filled with boxes, each containing 250 rifle percussion caps. There was also found in the hold, separate from the other freight, a half-barrel of sulphurated quinine, co
ions for temporary supplies. It was generally remarked in Springfield that Gen. Lyon was perfectly confident of success, in the event of an attack. The latest estimate places the rebel force at twenty thousand. Their arms are thought to be very inferior, judged by the specimens taken during the skirmish at Dug Spring, where Gen. Lyon had no intrenchments, depending upon his splendid artillery in the open field.--St. Louis Democrat, August 9. In the Maryland Legislature to-day, S. Teakle Wallis, from the committee to whom was referred the memorial of the police commissioners, submitted a long report, followed by preamble and resolutions, setting forth as arbitrary and unconstitutional the course of the Government in superseding the police board, and imprisoning Marshal Kane and the commissioners. The committee appealed in the most earnest manner to the whole people of the country, of all parties, sections, and opinions, to take warning by the usurpations mentioned, and come t
ly to its support, without distinction of party, and do all in their power to put down the rebellion and treason that are now in arms against our rulers, our Constitution, and our laws. Resolved, That we appoint delegates, without distinction of party, to represent the town of Fairfield at the great Union meeting at Bridgeport to-morrow. The Provost-marshal of Baltimore, Md., this morning, before break of day, arrested Mayor Brown, Ross Winans, Charles H. Pitts, Lawrence Sangster, S. T. Wallis, and T. P. Scott, members of the Maryland Legislature, F. H. Howard, editor of the Exchange, and delivered them at Fort McHenry. He also arrested Messrs. Dennison, Quinlan, and Dr. Lynch, members of the Legislature from Baltimore County; Henry M. Warfield, Dr. J. Hansom, Thomas and John C. Brune, members of the Legislature from Baltimore City; also Thomas J. Hall, Jr., editor of the Baltimore South. All the arrests were made pursuant to orders from the United States War Department.--N.

Among the men whose names should never be forgotten, until they have been duly punished for the atrocious crimes in which they have involved themselves at Baltimore, Ross Winans, Thomas Winans, Abel of the Baltimore Sun, Kane, the Police Marshal, S. Teakle Wallis, and some others, are already known to the country. They are all traitors of the blackest dye, and amply merit the traitor's doom. We now learn the name of another of these conspirators to destroy the Union and ruin Maryland. It is signed to the following order served upon a peaceful citizen of Baltimore on Tuesday last: Baltimore, April 23. Mr. John T. Burgess:--You are hereby notified to leave the State of Maryland within twenty-four hours after receipt of this note from date, by authority of the Regulators' Committee of the State. W. G. H. Ehrman. When the final settlement of accounts takes place at Baltimore, Mr. W. G. H. Ehrman, of the Regulators' Committee of the State, need not fear that he will be

sbaden, by Hoffgarten. But there is no resemblance, whatever, beyond the mere fact that it is recumbent. As well might it be said that Rauch took his idea from a sleeping knight stretched upon a tomb in some mediaeval cathedral. It is in this exquisite piece of statuary that we have the first real gauge of our sculptor's range of power. It is cut from one block of flawless marble, and is to occupy a place in the Lee Mausoleum, at Washington and Lee University, not yet complete. Mr. S. Teakle Wallis, of Baltimore, in an address at the Baltimore Academy of Music, thus speaks of the great work: The statue, which is of marble, and of rather more than life-size, received the last touches of the chisel but a few days since, and was exhibited to the public in Richmond, where it created the profoundest sensation. * * * The hero is lying in his uniform, as if in sleep, upon his narrow soldier's bed. One hand is on his bosom, and touches, unconsciously and gently, the drapery of his couc

tegy mighty, in battle terrible, in adversity, as in prosperity, a hero indeed, with the simple devotion to duty, and the rare purity of the ideal Christian knight he joined all the kingly qualities of a leader of men. It is a wondrous future indeed that lies before America; but in her annals of years to come, as in those of the past, there will be found few names that can rival in unsullied lustre that of the heroic defender of his native Virginia. In the language of another. S. Teakle Wallis. And when they tell us, as they do, those wiser, better brethren of ours—and tell to the world to make it history—that this our civilization is half barbarism, we may be pardoned if we answer: Behold its product and its representative! Of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. Here is Robert Lee. Show us his fellow. Our great leader was not only a great soldier, but more—a selfless man and stainless gentleman. On the 21st April, 1861, the Ric<
be gotten to the carriage which was in waiting for him, so great was the rush of the e clied crowd, who seemed perfectly wild with joy. And the cheering did not cease until the carriages containing the late prisoners were fairly out of sight. A number of those present followed the vehicles for some distance, and, as they passed up Baltimore street a friendly recognition was given them on all sides, After reaching their respective dwellings many ladies and gentlemen called and paid their respects. Mr. S. Teakle Wallis, a former member of the Legislature of Maryland from this city arrived in the train of Sunday morning. Col Kane and Mr. Brown have suffered an imprisonment of over seventeen months, Mr. Wallace upward of sixteen months and Dr. Magtil for about a year.
