Colonel Wm. C Scotts. We have read the defence of this gentleman, addressed to a Court of Enquiry, which was summoned with regard to his conduct in the Rich Mountain affair. He appears to us to have acted throughout with the strictest regard to military rule, and in obedience to all orders which it was possible to executes. The censure to which he was subjected in the public mind we believe to have arisen from ignorance of the circumstances, and was highly unjust. Col. Scott sustains all his statements by indisputable evidence. In our judgment his defence is complete.
Arrival from Washington of an escaped prisoner. On Tuesday morning last we published a notice of the escape from the old Capitol building at Washington of Mr. Wm. I. Barain, of Chestertown, Kent county, Md., a gentleman who was detained here for three months on the most frivolous pretext. We are gratified to state that he has arrived safely in Richmond. The particulars of his escape it would be unnecessary to notice, but we may mention one or two incidents which will surely be interesting to the reader. Mrs. Greenhow, and the other ladies there in prison, as has been already noticed, were released on condition of leaving for the South; but for some reason the order of Government has been revoked, and they are still detained. These ladies are still defiant, and by no means show a disposition to conciliate the Lincolnites in order to put an end to their imprisonment. The shooting of a prisoner, by a Yankee sentinel, heretofore alluded to, was, we are assured, quite unprovoked

An infamous contrivance. --We were shown yesterday a shattered Minnie ball that has-been extracted from the thigh of a brave South Carolina volunteer, Mr. Wm. W. East, from Greensville county, by Dr. J. H. Jones, at the Manchester Hospital. The ball had in it a piece of hardened steel, crooked so as to produce the most irritating wound, and sharpened as if by machinery. One would think the leaden missile deadly enough in itself, without the addition of the above diabolical contrivance. If the Union were not already everlastingly broken, such arguments as the above would go a very little way towards mending it again.
