How Roger A. Pryor was captured and escaped.--A letter to the Charleston Courier, written from the field in Virginia, after the battles with Pope's army, near Manassas, (August, 1862,) says: Brig.-Gen. Roger A. Pryor, during the day, had the misfortune to be taken a prisoner, but the corresponding good fortune to escapem keenly, asked him to what regiment, brigade and division he belonged, and, as Pryor hesitated and stammered out his reply, the Yankee sprang to his feet and exclaier now jumped to his feet, apparently as if to escape but he also received from Pryor a lunge that left him helpless on the field. Throwing down the musket, the Gen aid returned with the information that he had found one so injured. Whereupon Pryor mounted his horse and went in person to see him. The man was asleep when he entsurprised when he learned that the author of his misery was the redoubtable Roger A. Pryor. July 9.--At a meeting of the Directors of the American Express Company
