Prom a Prisoner in Charleston

of lies, Robert Ould, sees fit to propose !
It may also serve as an indication of the!
sentiment of the military and naval power
of our people, for when w i e reflect that
there is note brigade in n4r army, not a
squadron cfour navy, and, Strange to say,
not a State, of the orieinal thirty-four but
what is here reprerea;ed, if is not e in my
judgment, assuming too Much to claim
that the opinions and language of these
officers may be accepted as the index of
the feelings, wishes and intentions of the
army and navy. Keeping in mind, also,
that this bedy of men is empsed of the
veterans of 18(11, pupils of Buell in the
West and McClellan in the East, and of
all subsequent levies, it Will surely be
granted that no collection of L nib with the
same degree of intelligence and experi
ence in the moclus operand and practical
results of this war can be found. In these
premises, I 'will'give you the prevailing.,
I may say, the unanimous; sentiment of
one thousand United States officers.

"That zs a lie. It was an experiment-H

that penned that resolution, and the men'

getting rather eloquent, when a Buckeye;
from Vallabdigham's district blurted calf;
"I don't care Tor your liberated thousands,!
