I have never seen a description
given of the effects opon the human

vegetable food was ever issued, or

Our rations bad more variety than
we obtained at Andersonville, usually
cotisistiog of wheat flour, hominy,
rice, or . Indian meal. Dr. Hamlin,
in bis learned dissertation- on An
dersonville, assumes that ' to the
soaroity of food were entirely owing
those aggravated forms of scurvy
with which the prison was reeking.
This, no doubt, contributed in
producing them, by weakening the
system and giving leas power to the
body to throw off the iuflueuoe ol

There was a phase of character
developed by prison life which was
neither joyous nor sad iu its oat

bracing of every nerve, aud the con
centration of all the powers of mind
and body against disease and death,
ia which mea neither luughed, nor
smiled, nor cried, nor could any
