Yankee Presences to prevarication. We publish below a letter from Capt. Jones, of the Confederate Army at Manassas, relative to a recent correspondence about the body of "the lamented Col. Cameron." Captain J. nails the falsehood of the Yankee officers to the counter like base coin. The proneness to prevarication of the wholkee army, from privates and runaway Captains to a gouty Lieutenant General with his feet in load water, is indeed very remarkable. The reader will be amused at Capt. Jones' allusion to the motive with which the Yankee officers have made their repeated parade of philanthropy in their pious pursuit of the body of the "lamented Camer the company. --The greatest laughter heard since the beginning of the war resulted from this piece of wit, and the dead body of Col. Stiggins is as much the word in camp as the elephant after the celebrated play. W. E. Jones, Capt. 1st Va. Cavalry. [Captain J. did not enclose the letter from Capt. Johnston. --Editors.]
