coiled around, me someihing like a swing,

out of the window with Ime, and iti a mo

SUPPLIES FOR RICHMOND PRISONERS.-

such a generous and zealous part in afford

Richmond prisons, requests us to acknowl 7
edge the receil•t by him of the following sup

From Mrs. M. A. Reid : dry beef, 5 IDs sausage,

apples, 1 bus. potatoes, 3 lbs butter, 1 peek onions,

5 cans apple butter, and a lot of tomatoes. From
Mrs. J. S. 'Nixon: 10 loavesuf bread, dried beef and

The Doctor forwarded the supplies to Rich.:
mond for prisoners confined in Libby. with
the exception of rone lot intended for those
in Castle Thunder.. He has most undoubted
assurance that the donations are duly received
ind properly distributed. It.. is hoped that
the good work is only begun; and that our
odople, realizing the condition of our bray
nen enduring the pangs of , hunger and in
leScribable other miseries in Southern 411-
.ons for the cause of their couatry, will re
pond •promptly and generously to the ap
i)eals made. Mr. Ould, Rebel State Com
missioner of Exchange, may denounce as
infamously false" the storms of the suffer
rigs of our prisoners circulated through the
North, but the evidence that these stories are
,ieither coined or exaggerated comes to us
dmost daily. We have -before teOrt: letter
2rom one whom we knote to bii a brave sol

cannot be doubted, in which he says " those
officers captureditnd without funds, are in a
starving condition," and urges immediate
relief. Again, " the rations issued to the
prisoners is nothing more than corn-bread.
and that not fit for a dug to eat." The lettur
bears date-November 22d, and did not come
through Rebel hands.

sincere. expression of appreciation and sftn

last season: He prepared, abOut taro dares
and a-half of marsh ground, upoi'l the farm
of Mr. J. B. Witmer. In the beginning of
June last he set out his plants, in square
rows; the_ hills being three and a-half feet
apart. The plants consisted of the following
varieties, viz : Connecticut, Pennsylvania,
Virginia and Havana. The tops were fre
quently cut off seas to allow the leaves to
grow large. The labor expended in hoeing,
etc.. was equal to the daily labor of two per
sons during the three months or more of the
tobacco season. The first ere!) was cut off
the ground in the latter.part of_August; and
when dry it wif make "about 000 lbs. The
tobacco is of very good quality. The second
crop was easily worked; and timed out tol
erably well. The whole; 'hOweVer, made
several hundred pounds. Season§ when the
frosts do not come early, the : second crop can
be made to pay considerably more than 'the
expenses incurred in working 'both crops.
