Oar U nicer Exrhanirea t hRrleiloii
It will lo recollected that some tiuio in June
last, after the enemy had persisted in savagely
' t ring, without any military ohject. upon the city
and non-conibataut citions of Charleston, our
authorities determined to try what effect would
be produced upon the enemy by quartering in a
portion of Charleston, within range of bis gum, a
amber of his officers of highest rank, then in
oar hands. Fifty Yankee ollleers general,
colonels, and majors were stmt to Charleston
for that purpose, and duly confined in a quarter of
the cily exposed to tho Yankee shells.
Immediately on hcirlnir of this proceeding, the
Yankee Government selected lifty of our ollleers
in their prisons to be exposed to our fire before
Charleston, and even went to work to construct,
cabins for their conlinement on Cutnmir.g's 1'olnt,
(Le end of Morris Island, not mure than a thou
sand yards fiom Fort Sumter, and also ccriscd
to the lire of oi her battel U s.

These otKceri were taken out of Fort Dcla
' ware on the liiith of June, and put aboard the
gunboat Diwjoon, und transported to Hilton
Uead, where they arrived en the fourth day after
leaving Fort Delaware. The cabins at Cummings'
Point, with the construction of which our gun
Bers at Sumter ore said to bare interfered con
siderably, were ready for their reception, und
ttaey.no doubt, would have been put into them
torihwiiu but fur a certaiu message from General
Samuel Jones. General Jones informed the
Yankee General Foster that if he put our officers
en Cummings' Point, be (Jones) would remove
the Yankee clficers from Charleston and put
them iu the r.io-t exposed p irt of Fort Sumter.
This was a stunner for Foster; ho knew Uen
eral Jones would execute his threat to the letter,
and that in that cae either the siege of Sumter
Bust lie abjndoned or else every one of tho ei
tive Yenkee oDIots would be tora to pieces by

We do not know what passed bowen the

Ptcamer John lirouki has arrived this morning,
from City Point. Ailairs at the front remain
much the same ns at last rciirts, with the ex'ep.
Hon that during Tlmrday night and yesb-rday
morning houvy firing was going on in Uuinsidc's
front. Tho John llrookt brought up six refugees
from Richmond, nnd twenty-one deserters from
the llebcl army, including Lieutenant Mix, of
Georgia, of the 1st Confederate battalion.
The names of the rel'ugcesare Edward Powers,
Charlie Glblan, John Morris, M. Koaeh, M,
Conway, and l'etcr Doylo. They left Richmond
on Thursday night ut K o'clock, lu charge of a
guide, to whom they paid from three hundred to.
Ave hundred dollars each in Confederate scrip for
piloting them to tho rlvor, and they walked
twenty-ttvo miles, through woods, to Ilaxull
farm, and came out t a gunboat, from whence
they were sent yesterday morning to Ci'y Point
in time to take tho John WrW. j.
They represent that there nro no males (men
or boys) in Illclimond, except thoso In Govern
ment employ. The men aro nearly all In the
army, eveirto old men over lil'fy-llvc, who form
the militia of the State.

There arc no troops in or about Richmond,
ex vpt in the fortifications ; those on the south side
I eirgr fully garrisoned, while those on tho north
side have barely enough men in them to keep
them in order.
One of these refugees drove a baker wagon,
and snys he sold loaves of bread weighing six
ounces at ouo dollar, and bacon had lately fallen
in prico, it being now quoted at from seven to
ten dollars per pound, Instead of from eight to
The deserters from the army above-mentioned
have belonged to difTorent regiments, and h ive
left their lines at different tiiacs, some as late ns
Monday, 1st August inst. Most of them aro
from Florida, Alabama, and Georgia, aud have
not generally served over one year, but that year
has been enough.
Those from the States named above say that
there is a sort of half mutiny among the troops
of those Sintos, who aro Bick of war, und anxious
to give in. The ollleers, however, niarjago to keep
them from derciting by mailing them believe if
they come over to our lines that Grant will put
tliciu in the front ranks.
They stafo that for n long time -ome of them
believed this nonsrnsc, and were deterred from
coming over; and they are satislied if the men in
the Alabama, Georgia, and 11 ri la rcgiiueutH
knew that they would be treated well, dosjrlions
would lie cxtennive.
They represent flic works at Petersburg us
very strong, and do not bclicvo that General
Grant, or any one else, can take them by storm,
but say that had our men acted promptly when
we blew up their fort we could have entered
the town easily ; but the goldon opportunity is
passed, and we cannot possibly gain another op
portunity so favorable.
The houses in the city have been pretty well
battered, and many destroyed, sonio of them by
tire. Nearly all the tiro engines belonging to
Riebmoud aro in Petersburg, nnd they have a
regularly organized fire department, composed
of soldiers, who are ready at a momont's warn
ing to go to work and extinguish the fires occa
sioned by General Grant's shells.
Most of these deserters have been stationed at
the front, and cannot, they say, form any correct
estimate of the strength of the Confederate force
at Petersburg, but none of them believe that their
entire army exceeds fifty thousand mon, aud
brigades und divisions are being sent away once
or twice every week, to other points.
Conscripts are constantly being received, how
ever, and their army may be for some tiino kept
up by these accessions.

There were live or sis soldiers on guard on the

The Military Commission appointed by the
Prcsideut to iuvostigate the causes of the failure
of the late assault on Petersburg) continued its
eossioas on Wednesday. General Hurnsido was
present and examined, and gave his version of
the affair. G. neral Meado, It is known, had been
examined on the Monday previous.
General Iltirnside claimed that be carried out
the orders of his superior officer, a:id that neither
he nor the ollleers of his troops were to blame for
the failure. It is w?ll understood, however, that
General Meade insists that liurn.side did not
carry out his orders, but, on the eontrary, failed
both to attack as ordered, and to answer tele
grams sent from 104 o'clock in the evening of
the 20th until next morning.
During the morning of the attack not less than
sixty -four dispatches were sent by General Meade
to Gcucral llumside. The claim of the latter
that General Meade having the night before tho
attack made some change in the plan of operations,
be supposed General Meade would be on hand
personally to direct the assault, will not, it is be
lieved, be allowed. The universal sentiment of
the army, outsido of the !'th Corps, atllrtus the
