Col. Tyler, of the Confederate army.The following letter is sent us for publication. It explains the manner of the arrest of Col. Tyler, at Cincinnati. It is evident that the telegraph, acting under the control of the Government, suppressed the replies of Mrs. Tyler to Col. T.'s messages, and thus laid the toils for him: Newfort Barracks, Aug. 14th, 1861. Not having any positive information of the whereabouts of my wife, whom I had heard from but once since my resignation from the U. S. Army, and having reason to suppose she was in a community which did not sympathize with me in the great national struggle, I obtained from Gen. Beauregard a leave of absence of ten days for the purpose of finding her, with the intention of taking her to Virginia. Meeting Lieut. Waddy, recently resigned, I learned from him that my family was near Cincinnati. I repaired to Nashville, telegraphed twice; but could get no reply.--With a natural anxiety, but imprudently, as the sequel will show, I resolved to brave the dangers of an arrest by searching for it in Ohio. The cars which left Louisville at 11:30 were advertised to reach Cincinnati at daylight next morning. The train was behind time, and when I was searching for an omnibus to take me to the country place where my wife was adjourning, I was arrested by Col. Guthrie, who, I understand, his just returned front service in Western Virginia. He carried me before the U. S. Attorney General, who decided that I should be turned over to the military authorities. Adj't Gen'l McClellan telegraphed to Gen. Scott, who directed I should be sent to these barracks in confinement. Subsequent rumors Indicate that I shall be sent to Fort Lafayette, New York. An attempt has been made by, Kentuckians to have me released by a writ of habeas corpus; but the civil authorities were prohibited the garrison. I am closely guarded, but treated with courtesy and kindness. The news of my arrest created intense excitement, and for a time an apprehension of a mob was general. My captor, Col. Guthrie. assigned as his especial reason for arresting me, that it was to procure the exchange of Lieut. Col. Woodruff, recently captured in Virginia, and promises to make propositions to the United States Government to that effect. I hope my friends will do all they can to effect an early exchange.
Col. Tyler, sent me the above, which I was requested to copy and have published. I also copy a piece taken from a Northern paper, which, if you have room in your columns, you will oblige me to insert.
