Capiain urpose of releasing the prisoners of war at Camp Douglas, taking possession of the city of Chicago, reinforcements were made to the garrison at Camp Douglas, which thwarted the expedition, and its memeight and nine thousand prisoners of war at Camp Douglas, and that, taking advantage of the exciteme. The whole number of troops for duty at Camp Douglas on that day were as follows: Eighth regme in Walsh's house, about thirty rods from Camp Douglas, arms and ammunition, as per annexed scheduf Prisoners ,by telegraphic despatch, dated Camp Douglas, November seven, at four o'clock A.

These facthe North-at Point Lookout, Fort McHenry, Fort Delaware, Johnson's Island, Elmira, Camp Chase, Camp Douglas, Alton, Camp Morton, the Ohio Penitentiary and the prisons of St. Louis, Missouri, our men harred in the South. The witnesses who were at Point Lookout, Fort Delaware. Camp Morton and Camp Douglas, testify that they have often seen our men picking up the scraps and refuse thrown out from tut even a greater inhumanity than any we have mentioned was perpetrated upon our prisoners at Camp Douglas and Camp Chase. It is proved by the testimony of Thomas P. Holloway, John P. Fennell, H. H. re frost-bitten by being kept day and night in an exposed condition before they were put into Camp Douglas. Their sufferings are truthfully depicted in the evidence. At Alton and Camp Morton the sam

Mr. Derry was on duty in Virginia, Tennessee, on the Georgia coast and in the Atlanta campaign of 1864, his service being terminated by capture on the skirmish line at Kenesaw Mountain, June 27th, after which he was a prisoner of war at Camp Douglas, Chicago, for about one year.

equal exchange and the settlement of the issue by treaty or battle. I insist, says Mr. Stephens, upon irrefutable fact that but for the refusal of the Federals to carry out an exchange, none of the wrongs or outrages, and none of the sufferings incident to prison life on either side could have occurred. There is no purpose in this history to recount the cruelties practiced during the great struggle of the South for independence, and hence no account will be given of the atrocities at Camp Douglas, Rock Island, Elmira, Point Lookout or anywhere perpetrated by Federal subordinates in charge of Confederate prisoners. There were sufferings in all prisons and brutalities perpetrated in this as in other wars, but the proofs furnished by the evidence of General Butler, by the orders of Federal military officers, by the orders and communications of General Grant, and by the reports of Secretary Stanton, all of which are of record, fix the responsibility of this uncivilized mode of war up
s by birth a Kentuckian, but at the beginning of the war resided with her husband, a prominent and wealthy lawyer, in Chicago, Illinois. Her sympathies, always Southern, became strongly enlisted upon the side of the unfortunate prisoners at Camp Douglas. Both Judge Morris and his wife were deeply implicated in the plot to release these men. Their home in Chicago was a place of secret rendezvous for Southerners who, in the interest of these prisoners, were secretly visiting Chicago. By sombe the most probable consequence. Yet she risked it all. To use her own words, copied from a letter which I received from her shortly before her death, I did help my suffering, starving countrymen, who were subjected to the horrors of Camp Douglas. I loved them with all the sympathy and pride of a mother, and I did spend upon them every dollar of my own money and as much of my husband's as I could get by fair means or foul in my hands. At the close of the war we found ourselves brok

Coventry, of the police, rendered very efficient service. J. B. Sweet, Colonel Commanding Post. Mr. White to Secretary Stanton.—(telegram.) Chicago, November 7, 1864. Hon. E. M. Stanton, Secretary of War: Colonel Sweet, by his energetic and decisive measures last night, has undoubtedly saved Camp Douglas from being opened, and the city from conflagration.

enator from Kentucky), General S. B. Buckner, and Colonel D. Howard Smith. We were not fortunate enough to arrive in time to hear these speeches, but learned that they were all admirable, and excited great enthusiasm. Miss Johnie H. Morgan (the only daughter of the gallant chief) and Miss Tommie Duke (daughter of General Basil Duke), were presented by Governor Blackburn and were received with great enthusiasm, as was also Mrs. Morris, who had been an angel of mercy to our prisoners in Camp Douglas. At night the committee were courteous enough to place on the programme and the crowd were kind enough to hear a high private in the rear rank, from Virginia, tell of The Boys in Gray, with whom he was associated, and to show by their hearty responses that the men who rode with Morgan were in warm sympathy with Jackson's Foot Cavalry. Among the letters of regret at not being able to be present on the occasion was one from President Davis, in which he said: You have justly appr

Editor of Southern Historical Papers, Richmond, Va.: It is with profound sorrow that I announce the sudden death of Mrs. Sarah Bell Waller, at her residence on Ashland avenue in this city about 8 o'clock P. M. Thursday the 13th. The thousands of Confederate prisoners of war who survive their confinement in camp Douglas near this city during the war, will remember this lady as one of the most active and efficient of those noble-hearted ladies who devoted themselves during the four long years of the existence of this noted prison-pen to the alleviation of their situation in providing for the sick, and clothing naked and destitute prisoners. The destitute prisoners of Fort Donelson—Island No.10—Arkansas Post, &c., &c., have cause to remember with gratitude her kind and efficient ministrations to their nec
