in another place, it will be observed that he refers to a statement made by Captain Wirz to his counsel just before his death. The subjoined letter from Professor R. B. Winder, M. D. now Dean of the Baltimore Dental College, who was a prisoner in a cell near that of Wirz, will give a more detailed account of the same transactionten in reply to an inquiry made in the course of investigation in the history of the transactions which have been made the subject of discussion in Congress. Dr. Winder speaks of the statement as having been already several times published. We do not remember to have seen it before. At any rate, it will well bear repetition, arded by sentinels, and a sentinel was always posted directly between these openings — but Wirz and myself were often allowed to converse. Very truly yours, R. B. Winder. Have we not made out our case so far as we have gone? But our material is by no means exhausted, and we shall take up the subject again in our next issu
en to him during those sad months of 1864. He was a man of mercurial temperament, prone to anger, and prone to abuse. When things went well he was kind and good-natured; when they went ill he was the reverse. . . . He might have commanded a company well, and possibly a regiment, but thirty thousand men got away with him. He was at sea in their management. Other commandants and officers of prisons, including Major Thomas P. Turner of Richmond, Richard Turner of Libby, W. S. Winder and R. B. Winder of Andersonville, were imprisoned for a time after the war, but they were never brought to trial. Major Gee's acquittal has been mentioned. Because of the early appointment of a United States commissary-general of prisoners, conditions in Northern prisons were more nearly uniform than those in the South. The railroad lines were never closed, and the Commissary and Quartermaster's departments were able at all times to furnish any A Federal court-martial after Gettysburg The cour

One of Pope's officers arrested for Grand larceny. --One of Pope's officers was left behind yesterday, when the others dispersed in the direction of Yankeedom, or rather was brought back after getting some distance on his way. His name is William S. Atwood, and his rank that of Major in the 1st regiment of Michigan volunteers. His detention was caused by an order of Gen. Winder to that effect, a charge of grand larceny having been entered against Atwood. It appears that while Atwood's regiment was prowling in the vicinity of Mount Vernon he and a number of his comrades proceeded to depredate on the premises, by virtue of their belonging to the family of Col. Jno. A. Washington, a rebel, and in pursuance of Pope's proclamation. Atwood selected as his share of the plunder the celebrated picture of George Washington, painted by Stuart, and which for eighty-odd years had been hanging in the venerable mansion undisturbed. He caused it to be shipped to his Northern home as a p
