Barbarity of the Yankees.

treasury department C. S., Second Auditor's Office, July 28, 1863.
gentlemen: I have this day received at my office a series of Yankee returns of our soldiers and citizens, who have been murdered by cold, starvation, and the most cruel and intentional neglect, in the Yankee prisons all over Yankeedom, numbering many thousands. A perusal of these lists is enough, and ought to fire the hearts of every confederate man, woman, and child with the deepest hatred, fury, and the desire of speedy vengeance. Any one desiring to inspect these lists, comprising the bravest and the best soldiers and citizens from all the confederate States, and of the latter especially, from Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee, can do so by calling at my office, at the corner of Ninth and Grace streets, from eight A. M. to four P. M.

I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

W. H. S. Taylor, Second Auditor, C. S. --Richmond, Enquirer, August 11.
