l. Jones in Nashville we had the pleasure of many fireside talk with him upon affairs in the West, which he discusses with ready frankness, interspersed with many anecdotes and illustrations. These stories have led us to believe that, thus far, Missouri has the better of other seats of hostility for the real romance of war. Most assuredly the fight there has been waged with fiercer earnest than almost anywhere else. The remote geography of the country, the rough, unsewn character of the peoples progress a wild aspect, peculiarly susceptible to deeds, and suggestive of thoughts, of romantic interest. None of these struck us more forcibly than the story of Norah McCartey, the Jeanie Deans of the West. She lived in the interior of Missouri--a little, pretty, black-eyed girl, with a soul as huge as a mountain, and a form as frail as a fairy's and the courage and pluck of a buccaneer into the bargain. Her father was an old man — a Secessionist. She had but a single brother, just g

, of romantic interest. None of these struck us more forcibly than the story of Norah McCartey, the Jeanie Deans of the West. She lived in the interior of Missouri--a little, pretty, black-eyed girl, with a soul as huge as a mountain, and a form as frail as a fairy's and the courage and pluck of a buccaneer into the bargain. Her father was an old man — a Secessionist. She had but a single brother, just growing from boyhood to youth hood, but sickly and lamed. The family had lived in Kansas during the troubles of '57, when Norah was a mere girl of 14, or thereabouts. But even then her beauty, wit, and devil-may-care spirit were known far and wide; and many were the stories told along the border of her sayings and doings. Among other charges laid to her door, it is said she broke all the hearts of the young bloods far and wide, and tradition does even go so far as to assert that, like Bob Acres, she killed a man once a week, keeping a private church yard for the purpose of dec

She then made her way to a house near at hand, but she had not been long there before information was conveyed to her that the guard was on her track. She made her escape through the back entrance just as the guard appeared in front of she house, and proceeded to another place of refuge, from which she was again hunted.--This was repeated four times, but at length she eluded them and went forty miles in a skiff, down the Ohio river to Martinsville.--Here she took passage in a packet to Parkersburg, and again from Parkersburg to Cincinnati.

From Mitchell she went to Vincennes, where she was finally arrested by this hound, Blygh.

ginia lady, and we congratulate her upon her escape from the thraldom of Lincolndom and her restoration to Southern soil and society. Miss P. was arrested in Wheeling on the 28th of September last, by order of the Secretary of State, charged with conducting a correspondence with Southern "rebels."On account of indisposition, owledgment is made. In the latter to the Philadelphia Press, alluded to in the outset of this article, Miss Poole is said to have escaped from the prison at Wheeling, by means of tying her sheet together and letting herself down from the window. The only prison in which she was confined at Wheeling was her own home, and the Wheeling was her own home, and the manner in which she escaped there, from was not by lowering herself from the window, but in the manner related by us above. It is also said in this letter that Miss P., when arrested the second time, had on her person $7,500 of unexpended money, furnished her by the "rebels,"This is also false, as is likewise the statement th
charge of this Blygh, returned to Louisville and presented to Gen. Sherman at his headquarters. Gen. S. confessed that he did not know what disposition to make of her case, but concluded to send her to Washington and have the matter disposed of there. On the way she was again subjected to the insolence of this fellow Blygh, who, at every station took occasion to make some reference to her in terms calculated to give pain. On her arrival in Washington she was imprisoned in the house of Mrs. Greenhow, and in a room adjoining that occupied by this lady, where she remained up to the time of her release. While a prisoner Miss Poole underwent very many privations — being under the strict and constant surveillance of a guard, and was subjected to many inconveniences and annoyances of an unpleasant and distasteful character. She was not, however, altogether without friends, and she refers with lively gratitude to the very many acts of kindness performed for her by Col. E. R. Keys and

Southern Heroines.interesting Adventures and Escapes. No one trait of the human character has been so fully demonstrated during the history of this war as that of the indomitable courage of our. Southern ladies. Incidents without number have occurred in illustration of this fact, and the following will only serve to develop the special cases in point; Miss Ellis M. S. Poole. We published yesterday a letter to the Philadelphia Press, written from Washington, in which is given an account of the Washington female prisoners. Among the prisoners named is Miss Ellie M. S. Poole, of whom a number of things is said which have no foundation in truth. The Norfolk Day Book, of the aid instant, says: Miss Pool arrived here last evening in the flag of truce steamer, and we had the pleasure of an interview with her. She is an intelligent and pleasing lady, and, withal, possesses a fervor of patriotism which no tortures of the enemy could dampen. Our conversation with her convi
