Waiting for another ‘"Bull Run."’

--A messenger who undertook to deliver a letter from one Federal prisoner to another, in this city recently, dropped it on the floor of a public hall, perhaps intentionally. The writer says: ‘"I am patiently waiting for another Bull Run battle to take place, when I hope for an exchange; but if we get as badly used up as we did on the 21st of July, I think I will apply to be admitted as a citizen of the C. S. A.; for sure I will believe the d — l is only on our side."’ This is a candid expression of sentiment, and the writer seems to be an honest fellow. Satanic influences direct the course of public sentiment at the North, but truth and justice must ultimately triumph.
