. 1.--A feat was lately accomplished by some Union Alabama
soldiers, which I think has not been excelled during the war, and is worthy of record.
On the fourteenth of last month Lieutenant Tramel
and ten men of the First Alabama Federal cavalry, started on foot from Glendale
, some ten miles from here, where the regiment is stationed, and proceeded into the centre of Alabama
, and, after an absence of two weeks, they reached camp in safety, bringing with them one hundred and ten recruits for their regiment, as well as five prisoners-one a lieutenant — and a rebel mail as trophies.
The lieutenant captured was engaged in conscripting, and says he thinks that the Confederacy
is about played out, if ten men can travel all through it.--Chicago Tribune
