" ' ESCAPE.";-""' -;- Wc Lavo received a few of the advance sheets of a work of this title, by Albert G. lliciiAiiDSON, a correspondent of the tribune who waa captured in an attempt to run past the batteries at Vicksburg when Ge.v. Grant was besciging that stroughold.. We give below a few char acteristic extract, which may assist our readers to form tsome conception, of the interesting character of the work,- 'On that Sunday evening, half an hour before dark (the latest, moment at which the guards could be passed, even by au thorized person without the countersign), my friends, Messrs Drown and Davis, went out to the rebel hospital, beyond the inner line of sentinels, as if to order their usual medical supplies for the sick prisoners. As they passed in and out a dozen a times a day, and their faces were quite familiar to the sentinels, they were uot compelled to ehow their passes, uul Mr. rownc left his behind with inc." - A few minutes later, taking with nic a long bos filled with bottles in which med ical supplies were usually Drought, and fiving it to a littie lad who assisted me in my hospitol duties, I started to follow them. , As ii in great haste, we walked rapid ly toward the gate, while, leaning against trees or standing in the hospital ' doors, half a dozen ot our f riends looked on to sec how the plan worked. When we reached the gate, I took the box from the t v t -it where I was certain to be recognized. I boy, aud said to him, of course for the!,-, j , t. j- j ' : laid down my box ot medicines, and benctit of the sentinel : t. n r..i .i -i i- ! sought she ter in a little outbuilding i. am gomg ouLsiue w get tuese ooi- ties filled.

The lad understanding the matter per- cetly replied : "Yes, sir; and I at tempted to pass the sentinel by mere as surance. I had learned leng before how far a man u:ay go even in captivity, by sheer native impudence by moving right along, without hesitation, with a confident look, just as if he had a right to go and no one had any right to question him. Ouc several occasions, I absolutc'y saw prisoners, who had procured citi- zeua' clothes thuS walk past -the guards in broad daylight, out of llebel prisons. I thiuk I could have done it. on this occasion, but tor the tact that it tad been tried successfully two or three times, and the guards severely punished. The sen tinel stopped'mc with his musket j de manding: "Have you a pass, sir? "Certainly, I have a pass," I replied, with all the indignation I could assume. "Have you not seen it often enough to know by this time ?" Apparently a little confounded, he re plied modestly : "Probably I have, but they are very strict with us, nrfd I was cot quite I gave to hiui this genuine pass belong ing to ir.y associate : .

Faqua, Cer'i. and Ass't Commandant of Post We had speculated for a keg time about my using a spurious pass, and two comrades prepared several, with a skill and exactness which lcmonstratcd that, i f their tab tits had been turned in that direction, they might have made first- class forgers, l'ut we finally concluded that the veritable pass was better, because, if the guard tad any docbt about it I could tell him to send it to headquarters for examination. The answer of course would be that it was genuine. But it was not submitted to any -such inspection. The guard spelled it out slowly, then folded and returned it to me, saying : .. .. , "That, pass is alhight. I know Cap tain F aqua's handwriting. Go on, sirj excuse me, sir, lor detaining you." I thought him very excusable under the circumstances, and walked out. My great fear was that during the half an TUB EIFOBCCMEIT Of THE LAWS. irMd 1 EoiAjsjoIi must- elapa before , I odti garrison.

Before I listd walked ten steps, I saw, sauntering to and fro on the picza on the new headquarters building, a deserter from our senica named Davidson who recognized aad : bewed t to( , iqc). , .1 rather thought he would cot bctrcy me, but was still fearful of it. fI ,wcnt on, acd a few jards. further, coming toward me in that narrow lane, where it was .im possible to atoid him, I saw otle . reb,?! ol5eer who knew ine better than asy other who came into tiij rjnarters frc tjucntly Lieut.

AVhen we met I bade hiui good even ing, aud conversed for a few minutes upon the veather, or some other subject in which I did not feel any very profound iutcKst' Then lie "passed into headquar ters, and I Went on. Yet a few yards furticr I encountered a third liobel named uith, who waa entirely familiar with me, and whose quarters, inside the garrison, were within twenty feet of Eiy own. There were not half a dozen Gun federates about the prison who were fa miliar with me, but it seemed as if at this time tney were coming together in a grand convention. - - Vnt ihirlno in ontor tho Tiobol hnmif:i! r rpm . t,p FnT flll. coming of the blessed darkness, I con stantly expected to see a sergeant, with a file of rebel soldiers, come to take me back in the yard: but none came. It was rare good fortune. Stockton, Smith, and Davidson all knew if they had their Wits about them, that I had no more right there than iu the village itself. - I sup pose their thoughtfulncss must have been caused by the peculiarly honest and business-like look of that medicine-box. At drk, my two friends joiucd me. Wc went through the gate in full sight of the sentinel, who seeing us come from the hospital, supposed that we were Rebel i surgeons or nurses. Anil then on that dark, rainy Sunday night, the first time for twelve mcnths, wc found our circs walking freely in a public street without a rebel bayonet before or be hind us. 1 . . So, on that cold night, when wc were so stiff and exhausted that wo could bare ly keep our seats on the mules they had so thoughfully furnished, these friends conducted us fifteen miles, and left us in a Union settlement wc were sdeking- It Tas now five o'clock in the morning. Lea ring ray companions behind, I tapped at the door of a log bouse. . For many months, even before leaving prison, we had been familiar with the name ot Dan Elms a famous Union guide, who since the beginning of the war had done nothing but conduce loyal men to oat lines. : Ellis is a hero, and his life A romance. He had taken through, in all more than four thousand persons. - He had proba bly seen more adventure -in fights and races with the Rebels, in long journeys sometimes bare-footed and through the snow, . or swimming the rivers full cf J Coating ice than any other man living. IT -t il. . ue never lost out one man, who was swooped up through his own heedlessness. The party had travelled eight or ten days, living on nothing but parched corn. Dan insisted that a man could walk twen ty five wiles a day through snow upon pan ed-coro. just as well as upon any other diet if he only thought so. I feel bound to say that I have tried it and don't think so. This person held the ssme opinion. " He rovoltcd against the parehed-corn diet, vowing that he would go to the first house and get an honest meal, if he was captured for it. ; He went to the first house, obtained the meal, and wis captured. ' ' ' " . - . After we had traveled fifty, miles, efcr'y tody said to us, "If you' only find Dan Ellis, and do just as he tells you, you will be certain to get through. ' AVc dt'tl frnd Dan Ellis. , On a Sunday night, one hundred and thirty-four miles from our lines, greatly broken down, we j reached a point oa tho road waited r for I two, tours, rhen alonj-nw Daw Ellis, with a party of seventy men refugees, prisoners, Rebel deserters, Union 3oldiers returning from their homes within the enemy's lines, and escaped . prisoners. ' About thirty of them were mounted -and twenty armed. Like most men of action, Dan was a person of few words. When our story had been told to him, he said to his com rade s: ... , ' J'oys here eri.ome geutlcffien who havo escaped from Salisbury, and who are almost dead from the journey. They are our, people. They have suffered in our cause. They arc going to their homes in our lines. ., We on't.,ride and let these men wlk. .Get down off yottr horses and help them p." . ;.. . Down they came,-and tip wo went ; and then we pressed along at a terrible pace. ' ' ' ; ..- .! ... , To-day whttt vre came on the hot track bi" eight guerrillas, the Rebel-hunting instinct waxed strong ; ritlun Den, acd, taking eight ot hts own men, he started in fierce pursuit. Seven of the enemy escaped, but one was captured and brought to our camp a prisoner. ..v Then Dan went to the ne .rcst Union koii.se, to learn the news ; for every loyal family iu a range of many miles knew and bved him. We, very weary, lav down to sleep in nn old orchard, with our saddles tor pillows. Our reflections were pleasant. We were otly .seventy nine miles' frohi the Union lines. We progressed swimmingly, and had even bc- guq:tr regulate the domestic . affairs of the border 1 ...,-.- .. Rcfore midnight soma one shook my arm. I rubbed my eyed. . open and looked up. There traa Dan Ellis. "Boys, we must saddle instantly. .We have walked right into a" nest of Rebels ; several hundred are within a few miles ; eighty arc in this immediate vicinity. They arc laying :n ambush for Colo nel Kirk and his men. It is doubtful whether we can ever get out of this. We mast diviae into two parties. The footmen must go to the mountains; we who are riding, and in much more danger as hctscs make more noise, and leave so many traces must press cn at once, if we ever hope to reach the Union Hues.' The word was passed in low tones. Flinging our saddles upon our weary hor ses, wc were on our way almost instantly. My place wasjiear the middle of the cav- al cade. The man just before me waa ri ding a white horse, which enabled me to follow him with ease. We galloped along at lau's usual pace, with the most sublime indifference to roads up and down rocky hills, across streams over fences everywhere but upon public thoroughfares. I suppose we had travelled three miles, when Mr. Davis foil back from the front, and said to nic : "That young lady rides well , dots she not ?', "What young lady?" "The young lady who is piloting us." I had thought Dan Ellis was piloting us, and rode forward to see about the young lady. There she was, sure enough. I could not scrutinize her face in the darkness, but it was said to be comely. I could see that her form was graceful, and the ease and firmness with which she sat on her horso would have been a lesson for a riding-master. She resided ia the Union house where, Dan had gene for news. The moment she learned his name she" volunteered to pilot hiui out of that neighborhood, where she was born and bred, and knew every acre. Tho only accessible horse (one be longing to a Rebel officer, but just then kept in her father's barn) was brought. out and saddled. She mounted, came at midnight, and was now steadily guiding us, avoiding farm houses where the Reb-, els were quartered, going round their camps, evading their pickets. She Ice! us for seven miles. Then, while we remained in the wood, she rode forward over the long bridge which span ned the Nolechucky River, to see if there were iny guards upon it; went to the frst Union house beyond to learn wheth er the roads were picketed; came back tcld us the, coast was clear. Then she rode by our long line toward her home. II w ouuum 11H 1 1 , HI UV. .111 L W .VW.H, cheers had it been safe to rheer. l!
