Among them,was a naval sword and three

With. many bullet holes,
Capt. D. in offering the beautiful sword
to Lieut, Bates of the Artillery, compli-
mented himn very, highly for his bravery
and efficiency in both engagements with
the gunboats, &c, Lieut. B. responded- in
a chaste and appropriate little spec~ch,i
declaring '-that he would never be willing
to sheathe the sword, until peace was de-
clared and'Iis country free &c. &o.
Capt. D. then presented death company
with a fl5i*.
The parade ground exhibited a very
picturesque appearance with the different
flags flying to the breeze ; but in the mid-
ground, there was one of a large size, with
the stars and stripes. This was suspend.

trailing -in the dust, The sight of this
flag, once so glorious, so hallowed and so
cherished by us all, brought momen-

,,The General received a painful but not
serious injuries from the sudden fall by
his horse.
About four and a half a. m., to-day the
enemy made an attack upon the right of
our line in front of Gen. Hoke and pirt of
Breckenridge's line. He was repulsed
without difficulty. He succeeded, how-
ever, in penetrating a salient in Brecken-
ridge's line and captured a portion of. a
battallion posted there.
Gen. Finegan's brigade', and a Maryland
battallion. immediately drove the enemy
back with severe lpas. Repeated attacks
were made upon Gen. Anderson's position,
chiefly against his right, under Gen. Ker-
hliaw. They were'^neE-y great eS-dT-,d
ness and repulhed in-every instance.- .The.
attack extended to our our extreme left
under Gen. Early, With like result. Later
in the. day it was twice rne~wd against
Hetb, who occupied Early's left,, but~the
enemy was repulsed with loss. Gen Hamp-

not without misgivings and fears. I still
think, as I have thought heretofore, that,
after several large battles, a-general ex-
change will take place. As the weather
grows warmer, theprison yard presents a
livelier appearance. Out door amusements,
such as running, jumping, base-ball, bull
pen and prisoouer's base, are going on all
the time. Those who, like -ground squir-
rels, have been burrowed in their bunks
all the winter, are joining in the fun with
great spirit, glad of the *opportunity to
take exercise, and I meet every day on
the rebel avenue some faces I have. not
seen since last fall. Thespian and min-
strel performances are being resumed.-
Clas-es of French, German Matbematics
and military tactics are' being formed.--
We hAve concluded, after many long, long
months of experience within prison walls,
that. it is best to try to be cheerful and
keep the mind employed. None of us
are 'in the least despondent, indeed we are
decidely hopeful. Capt. Joshua Mizell, of
