Statements of the "peace Commissioners."

Richmond, Va., December 2, 1864.
To the Editor of the Dispatch:
In the New York, Daily Tribune of November 26th appear two or three columns, containing what purports to be the account of what one "Edmund Kirke," alias J. D. Gilmore, saw, and said, and did, on the occasion of his recent visit to the military prisons in this city. A portion of this account appeared in the Dispatch of the 80th ultimo. The statement is not only filled with false-hoods of the grossest character, which must be apparent to every reader, but in every particular, save the single one of his being at the Libby, is utterly without foundation. The whole story is a lie, and as well, if not better, known to be such by "Kirke" than anybody else.

I have conferred with Judge Ould on the subject, and he joins me in stigmatizing it as a shameless publication.

Th. P. Turner,
Major Comd'g Military Prisons,
