The member of Congress prisoner.

The Hon. Mr. Ely, M. C., who is a prisoner here, represents one of the strongest Black Republican Districts in Western New York.

A Southern gentleman, now in attendance at the Bankers' Convention, informs us that he was in Ely's District last summer, and understood that he was most active in organizing Wide-Awake Clubs.

We are informed that Mr. Ely says, if he is released he will procure the liberation of all our privateersmen in New York. Probably our Government will think it better for Mr. Ely to procure their liberation first; and then, but not till then, a corresponding number of our prisoners, himself among the rest, may be discharged.
