views, and when upon terminating a visit of this kind at the Galt House she took her departure, she discovered that she was followed by detective Blygh, the best detective in Louisville, and who, she afterwards learned, had been delegated by General Sherman expressly for the purpose of effecting her arrest. She escaped his vigilance, as she thought, on this occasion, left Louisville, and proceeded to Mitchell, in Indiana. To her surprise she found him in the same train with herself — apparentw with the hope that he would find something in the shape of manuscript which would serve to convict Miss. P. of the charge against her. Nothing was found, however. She was then in 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 fell

From Cincinnati she proceeded to Louisville, during which journey she had the escort of a Federal officer, who, not being aware of the position she occupied, talked rather freely to her about the affairs of the Government. While at Louisville Miss P. visited several who sympathized with her in her political views, and when upon terminating a visit of this kind at the Galt House she took her departure, she discovered that she was followed by detective Blygh, the best detective in Louisville, and who, she afterwards learned, had been delegated by General Sherman expressly for the purpose of effecting her arrest.

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 convinced us that she is a true Virginia lady, and we congratulate her upon her escape from the thraldom of Lincolndom and her restoration to Southern soil and society.

Over hill, through marsh, under cover of the darkness, she galloped on to the headquarters of the enemy. At last the call of a sentry brought her to a stand, with a hoarse-- "Who goes there?" "No matter," she replied, "I wish to see Col. Prince, your commanding officer, and instantly, too." Somewhat awed by the presence of a young female on horseback at that late hour, and perhaps struck by her imperious tone of command, the Yankee guard, without hesitation, conducted her into the for tiffations, and thence to the quarters of the Colonel commanding, with whom she was left alone. "Well, madam," quoth the Yankee officer, with bland politeness, "to what have I the honor of this visit?" "Is this Col. Prince?" replied the brave girl quietly. "It is, and yourself?" "No matter, I have come here to inquire whether you have a lad by the name of McCartey a prisoner?" "There is such a prisoner." "May I ask, for why?" "Certainly; for being suspe

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 convinced us that she is a true Virginia 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, she was not removed from her home, but was allowed to remain in her room — a guard being placed at the door of the same and also a guard on the outside of the building. The door of her chamber was securely locked and the key taken by the officer of the guard. Previous, however, to the lock being turned, a thorough examination of the furniture, &c., i
