A pass from Gov. Pierpoint.

Francis H. Pierpoint, the distinguished Governor of New Virginia, formerly a greasy and out-of- practice attorney in the respectable county of Marion, in the Northwestern section of the State, has recently condescended to issue a pass to a paroled prisoner, who was unfortunate enough to fall into the hands of the enemy of Laurel Hill some time last summer. As a specimen of Mr. F. R. Pierpoint's condescension we append this pass, and commend the impudent complacency with which this traitor affixes his signature as Governor of Virginia.

The Commonwealth of Virginia,Executive Department, Wheeling, September 2, 1862.

J. R. Price, late a soldier in the Confederate army, taken at Imurel Hill a prisoner, and released on his parole of honor by Col. Hubbard, of the 1st Virginia volunteers, by order of Gen. Rosecrans, acting under directions of Gen. McClellan. Said Price resides at Atlanta, Ga., and has his parole. He is entitled to travel on the public thoroughness by the way of Columbus, Cincinnati, Louisville, and Nashville home, on his paying his own fair, and refraining from violating his parole.
