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.
