Oonoa'cssmaii iiiv, w ho was exchanged for
Faulkner, of Virginia. We copy from the New
York papers the following account by the re
leased ot his capture, w hat he saw an I how he
got home again :
lie was cipturcd by a South Carolina Com
pany of infantry, about 5 o'ehock, l". M. of the
day of the battle at Hull Run. J lo had stopped
;it it blacksmith, shop to have his oarriag-i mend
ed, and after that waited a while for Senator
Foster of Connecticut, who had gone out with
Mm. While waiting he walked down toward a
r i vine, in which he saw a company of national
troops skulking or iu :n hti-U, but us he ap
proached them I hey receded, and just ss Mr.
J ; i v pause 1 to return to liis crrriage, fpent
musket iiail struck near him. 11 u stepped be
bind a large tu-e near by to bo out ot dang r,
tmd continued his observations. In a moment
a cannon ball went crashing through the branches
of the tree, and seemed to be felling the w ii. le
top on him. l?y the time he recovered from
his surprise, a company of soldiers, necnmp-niod
by two well dressed oilkers emerged from the
woods near by.
They took him to their Colonel, and introduced
him formally us "Hon. Mr. Ely, Member of
Congress from New York." Instantly the Col
onel drew a pistol, cocked it and leveled it nt Mr. j
Idy s heal, not two paces distant, and said,
" Y'ou U d rascal, I'll blow your brains out"
The two oiii.:ers w ho h I arrested Mr. Fly in
staidly threw themselves upon the Colonel, forced
the nistol back, and oursuaded him away. Tie. v
then apologized to Mr. Fly, saying they were
ashamed of their Colonel, who was excited by
drinking. This olli vr was Col. Cash, and tiie
rfiieor who arrested Mr. Fly was Capt. Mullins.
Mr. Fly was put with a large heed of prison ,
crs, and all were started to Meuassas, which they I
reached at nine o'clock, r. m., au 1 were driven j
into an open space, and surrounded thickly by ;
guards, and all began to fall on tho ground'
then wet with a fast falling rain, to seek rest and
sleep. While Mr. Fly was preparing for a iin-
ilar movement, an cflieer rode into the tar 1 mid I
called aloud to know if " Mr. Fly of New York j
was present." Mr. Fly thou-ht his time had j
come now to be shot. Nevertheless, he answeted i
the c ill, and was told that Gen. lieatiregarj n
fplired hint l Como to headquarters. Ho f 'l-;
lowed the cllieer and reached the log house mr j
rounded by a verandah, on the porch of which,
wi:h a fciti-jle candle burning on it, was a table
iiro.it.d which sat Jeliavis, Ueauregard, Extra
Uilly Smith, Poieher utiles, and other rebel ;!'!
cers, apparently reckoning up the results of tho
da;, 's battle.
Pon her Miles f.pproaehed Mr. Ely Mi l ex
pressed regret at his situation, but in moiic nt
change J li s lone, rctttai'ni ig that he had noi j in
ion of a Congressman who would come to aid an
army in invading a Sta'e. Mr. Fly was sent
df to sleep iu a barn, w here he found the cap
tured national loiicers. Tho next day they were
all started to Richmond.
Mr. Fiy'g arrival mi announced by the Ri h
r.iond papers and the whole press of ta.i S'Ui'.i.
by which ho fooa became notorious. I! oaq lets
.vere :e:;t hi:: almost dai'r, and sometimes r.' t
loss t!i:m a dozen a day. His meals, too, nicely
prepared, were sect liitit by the families of citi
zens. The position of our hostages at Richmond is
painful. Seven of them are confine J in a room
about 12 by 15 feet, in the Richmond jail, hay
ing two small windows, which admit but little
light. They are permitted to see no person but
the jailer and the negro w ho waits upon them,
and are only permitted to leave their cells 3D
minutes iu the, morning and the same in the af
ternoon, to walk in the narrow promenade be
tween the jail building and (he interwall.
J heir food consists ot sonny corn urea l and
nonea oeer, anu lacy are not permute,! u nave
aii tiling ocitei even wioiigu uioy ptiiciiitseu ii.
V lieu Mr. Fly was release! he went in compa-
ny with JMf. iaulkner to the tail, and the two
were granted tltu favor of an interview with the
unfortunate o!lii;ers. Mr. Faulkner expressed
his surprise at this rigor, and he stated that mioh
w as uot the treatment that the privateers receiv d
in New York and Philadelphia ; that though they
were held for capital crime, they were ullowwl
to receive visitors and lo have ail the comforts
compatible with the'r safe, custody. Mr. Kly
thinks that, based upon this last statement by
Mr Faulkner, tho rebel authorities will lessen
the severity of their treatment.
He has not tho slightest doubt of an extended
and deep li: ion feeling in Richmond, mid says if
a national army were within ten miles ot Uien
mtud the natioal flag would be hung front hun
dreds of windows in the r(;bol capital. Never
theless an utter reign of terror prevail, and no
p..blio expression can be given.
The Jcaa of Arc at t amp Hobiuson.
A young lady with tho I'-ast Tonncssenns du
ring their stay at Camp 1 tcl; R ibin-ou is thus
alluded to by tho camp correspondent of the
Cincinnati Times :
One of tho featmesof the First Tcvmrrjcc re
gin, ent is the person of a brave and accompli died
young lady of eighteen summers, and of prepos
sessing appearance, named Sarah Taylor, of Fast
Tennessee, who is the stepdaughter of Capt. )ow
dell, of tho first Tennessee regiment. Miss Tay
lor is au exilo from her home, having joined the
fortunes of her stepfather and her wandering
companions, r.ceoiupany ing thorn in their perilous
and dreary flight from their homes and estates.
Miss Taylor has formed the determination to
share with her late companions the dangers and
fatigues of a military campaign. She has donned
a neat blue chapeau, beneath which her long hair
is fantastically arranged ; bearing at her side a
highly finished regulation sword and silver moun
tod pistols iu her belt, all of w hieh give her a
very neat appearance. She is piite tho idol,. of
tho Tennessee boys. They look upon her as a
second Joan of Arc, believing that victory and
; buy wiil perch upon the standards borne iu the
ranks f.t voted ny her h.Vtd procure. Mi.-n Cap
t liu Taylor is ad courage ami skill. Having be
come an adept in tii ; sword exorcise, au 1 a sure
shot w itu a pistol, bile is determined to hai l in the
van of tho march, bearing her exiled and op
pressed country men b u k to their homes, or, if
tailing, to oiler up her own life's blood in the
A gentleman w ho was on (he ground on Sat
urday night, the l'Jib, wherj tho order was issued
to the Teniiesseeans to march to reinforce Col.
tic ra I'd, informs us that the wildest excitement
pervaded the w hole camp, and that the yonnn
lady above alluded to mounted her horse, and,
cap iu hand, galloped along tho line like a spirit
of ll .mo, cheering fin the men. She wore a blue
blouse, sad was armed with lislo's, sword and
r.li.'. Our lnloi'iuaut, wlio lias lioeu at Mo camp
tho whole time since the arrival of the Tonnes
aeeaus, says that Miss Taylor is regarded by the
troops as a guardian angd, who is to lead them
to victory. Those persecuted men look upon
the darinir girl who followed th -ir fortunes tl.ro'
sunshine and shadow with tho tondcrest feeling
of veneration, and each would freely oiler his
life in her def .'Use. There was but little hie -p
in the ramp on Saturday night, so reat was the
joy of the men at tho prospect ot meeting the
foe, and at a very early hour in the morning they
filed away jubilantly, with their Joan of Are iu
tlio van. J list bct'oro taking up their line of
march, they ail knelt, and idling up their hands
solemnly swore never to return without s.-ci g
their Louies and loved one'. Vlr t!i. r tho Fa d

fectly secured. Slu is a girl of history, and po

Touching this subject, the following, from an
article in the London Quarterly, will bo found
comforting and instructive :
The pain of dying must be distinguished from
pain of the previous disease, for when life ebbs,
sensibility declines. As death is tho final ex
tinction of corporeal feeling, a numbness in
creases as death comes on. Tho prostration of
disease, like healthful fatigue, engenders a grow
ing stupor a sensation of subsiding softly into
a coveted repose. Tho transition revimbles
what may be seen in those lofty mount tin , tho
sides of which, exhibiting every climate in regu-
, u. j,..,,,.,,;,, violation luxuriates at their base
and dwindles in thu approach to tho regions of
snow, till its feeblest manifestation is repressed
by the cold. Tho so-called agony can never be
moie formidable th in when the brain is last to
go and tlio mind preserves to the end a ratio ial
cognizance of the state of the body. Y'et per
sons thus Hituated commonly attest that there
are few things in life less painful than its close.
"If 1 had strength enough to hold a pen," said
William Hunter, "I would write how easy and
delightful it. is to die."
If this bo dying," said tho nieco of Newton
of Olney, " it is a pleasant thing to die." " The
very expression," adds her uncle, which another
friend of mine made use of on his deathbed, a
few years r,go."
The same words have so often been tittered
under sin. ilar eircumsUneis, that we could fill
p;;ges w ith instance which are only varied by
the name of the speaker.
'If this bo dying," said Lady Gleiioreliy, " it
is the easiest thing imaginable."
li 1 thought that dying had Leeu more difficult,"
said. Louis XIV.
" I did not suppose it was so sweet t" die,"
said Francis Saurcz, the. Spanish theologian.
An agreeable surprise was the prevailing sen
li'neiit w ilh all. They expected the stream to
terminate in the dash of the torrent, and they
found it was losing itself in the gentlest current.
The whole of tho faculties seem sometimes con
centrated on the placid enjoyment.
The day Arthur Murphy died, lie kept repeat
ing from i'opo :
Ti'ii'ht h.i!f by reason, half by mere decay,
To welcome Uealh, and calmly pass away.
Nor docs tho calm partake of the seiisili veness
of sickness. There was a swell iu tho sea the
day Collingwood breathed his la .t upon the cle
mcnt which had been the scene of his glory.
Captain Thomas expressed tt fear that he was
di.-.tiirbed by tho tossing of tho ship.
" No, Thomas," ho replied, " 1 am now in n
stale in which nothing iu this world can disturb
mo more. I am dying; and 1 am sure it must
be consolatory to you, and all who love me, to
sec how comtorta'u y 1 am coming to my end."
