The passport officer replied in the affirmative, and suggested that he should exhibit it, the specimen, in the North, and say that although crude in its origin, we would refine upon it, and never cease striving for independence until we could make as good paper as the Yankees. The Yankee M. C. said he had no doubt we would arrive at the dignity of white paper.--Richmond Dispatch.

Hunt was ironed, and after visiting with his guard several of the towns of Virginia, at length was confined in a tobacco-factory at Richmond. Here he found Mr. Ely and a crowd of fellow-prisoners captured at Bull Run. Amongst them was Lieut. Morrill, of the Engineers. After some weeks passed in close confinement, Capt. Hunt, Lieut. Morrill, and another of the prisoners formed a plan of escape, but the night appointed for their escape found the Captain too ill and weak to make the attempt; but, after a delay of three weeks, finding that his health was becoming still worse, Capt.
