ature, and war, were discussed with an interest which might be expected from the concentration of so much of cultivated intellect. Frequently a game of foot-ball would form an episode in the day, and at night between twilight and nine o'clock, the hour of retirement, instrumental music, singing, visiting, smoking, games of chess and cards, served to while away the tediousness of the place. One of the officers who conduces most to enjoyment is Lieut. Col. Pegram, who was captured at Rich Mountain by Gen. McClellan. I may add here, parenthetically, that the General has always acted towards his captive with a generosity characteristic of the thorough-bred soldier. When ill he caused him to be sent to his own residence at Cincinnati, where he was nursed by his (McClellan's) wife — secured for him a furlough of several months, with which he might travel for either recreation or health, and placed at his disposal that excellent test of human sincerity — his purse.

One of the chief occupations among the ingeniously inclined soldiers, is the manufacture of such trinkets as can be made with a knife. Some of these have been brought home by the released prisoners, and consist of queerly carved pipes, (one of which, covered with sundry patriotic devices, is to be presented to President Davis) chains of wood, such as Chinese brains and hands originate, cups, puzzles, and other odd articles suggested by idle moments and curious fancy. Speaking of the personal appearance of the returned captives, "Personne" adds: Aside from the rather empty honor that they have been "prisoners of war," there is one peculiarity about many of them which excites both the observation and the envy of their fellow-soldiers at home.

For hisself he was gwine to stay wid massa." The following is an Ode written in Fort Warren, and dedicated to the Southern Confederacy. The name of the author is not given, but it is said to have emanated from one who occupied the highest political distinction in that place of confinement: Lines written in Fort Warren, by a Caftive.

From crown to sole they are covered with Northern goods and manufactures, and at a price just one third of the sum our poor fellows have to expend for a similar luxury. Many have likewise brought with them army bedsteads, cots, camp chests, and other ingenious traps which the exigency of the times has called forth from the contriving brains of the labor-saving, money-making Yankee. * * * *. Among other incidents it is related that an attempt was made by some of the Massachusetts soldiers to induce the servants captured at Fort Hatteras to "take the oath" and become citizens of the State, but the darkies indignantly spurned the idea, and one of them replied that he would "radder be a nigger in de Souf dan a white man in de Norf.
