nd Mr. Ely and a crowd of fellow-prisoners captured at Bull Run. Amongst them was Lieut. Morrill, of the Engineers. After some weeks passed in close confinement, Capt. Hunt, Lieut. Morrill, and another of the prisoners formed a plan of escape, but the night appointed for their escape found the Captain too ill and weak to make the attempt; but, after a delay of three weeks, finding that his health was becoming still worse, Capt. Hunt urged his friends to make the attempt without him. Unfortunately, after travelling some twenty-five miles from Richmond, Lieut. Morrill and his friend were retaken. Since then he is treated with more harshness. His friends believe that he will not be selected by the rebels for exchange, and that he will be apt to remain a prisoner for a long period, unless the Government gives special attention to his case. Since his release, Capt. Hunt's health is rapidly improving, and he will soon be able to rejoin his regiment. National Intelligencer, Jan. 16.
he hill was cleared, and soon the reserve of the brigade came in at a double-quick. As soon as he saw them, Col. Garfield pulled off his coat, and flung it up in the air, where it lodged in a tree out of reach. The men threw up their caps with a wild shout, and rushed at the enemy, Col. Garfield, in his shirt-sleeves, leading the way. As the Federal troops reached the top of the hill, a rebel officer shouted in surprise: Why, how many of you are there? Twenty-five thousand men, d — n you, yelled a Kentucky Union officer, rushing at the rebel. In an instant the rebels broke and ran in utter confusion. Several instances of personal daring and coolness are related. A member of Capt. Bushnell's company in the Forty-second, was about to bite a cartridge when a musket — ball struck the cartridge from his fingers. Coolly facing the direction from which the shot came, he took out another cartridge and exclaimed: You can't do that again, old fellow. Cleveland Herald, January 16
A Loyal Town.--The town of Claremont, in the good old Granite State, has done her full share in putting down this most unnatural rebellion, if the number of men furnished to the Union armies be taken as a criterion. Since the war commenced, the town has sent the following men to do service for their country: Eighty-four men for the three months service; fifty-five men for the Second regiment, who were at Bull Run; thirty-eight men for the Third regiment, now at Beaufort; a full company, one hundred and one men, for the Fifth regiment on the Potomac; seventeen men for the Seventh regiment, now at Manchester, and thirty-three men for the cavalry regiment, now at Providence. This makes a total of three hundred and twenty-eight men gone, out of a voting population of about one thousand. National Intelligencer, Jan. 16.
