WAR DEPARTMENT, Washington, September 30, 1862. Hon. EDWIN M. STANTON, Secretary of War.

SIR: I have the honor to report that 0. Barrett and Thomas McDowell, publishers and proprietors of the Patriot and Union, Harrisburg, Pa., were discharged from imprisonment in the Old Capitol | rison August 22 ultimo, the charge against them being the publication of a hand-bill calculated to discourage enlistments. Before their discharge they severally gave a parole upon honor to do no act or deed that is disloyal to the Government. That on the 25th instant the said Patriot and Union published an editorial disloyal, traitorous and treasonable, declaring among other things the following:

Keep these facts before the people and keep before them too the disgraceful fact that the President of the United States, an abolition Republican, declares in his emancipation proclamation that this Government will do no act or acts to repress slave rebellion. Remember that this cold-blooded invitation to insurrection and butchery comes from the Republican President of the United States, &c.

The above are only specimens of the disloyal and treasonable utter. ances of the Patriot and Union and are regarded not only as disloyal and treasonable but a violation of the parole given by said Barrett and McDowell on the 22d of August last. It is respectfully recommended that an order for the arrest of said Barrett and McDowell be issued and they be confined in the Old Capitol Prison till further orders, and also that the printing establishment of the Patriot and Union be taken possession of and the publication suppressed by the Government until further orders. Respectfully submitted.


Judge- Advocate.


No. 41.


Cincinnati, Ohio, September 30, 1862.


IV. The officers and enlisted men of the several new Indiana regi. ments that were surrendered and paroled at Richmond and Munfordville, Ky., and that were enlisted upon the promise that they should have a furlough of a few days in which to see their families and arrange home business before being sent into the field, are hereby granted leave

of absence for twenty days unless sooner exchanged, at the expiration E of which they will report themselves to the commanding officer at Camp

Chase, Ohio. The regimental and company commanders will see that each enlisted man of their respective regiments and companies is furnished with a furlough in due form under the authority of and in compliance with these orders.

CAMP CHASE, September 30, 1862. Hon. I. WASHBURN, Jr.

DEAR SIR: Being in peculiar circumstances we deem it proper to address you at this time. We were taken prisoners at Baton Rouge and kept at Jackson, Miss., until the 7th of September, when we were taken to Vicksburg and exchanged. We were then sent on to Cairo, Ill., where we obtained transportation to Columbus, Ohio, where we now are. Now, what we wish is to obtain transportation to our regi. ment or to be sent to our own State. We do not think that they have any right to detain us here and we certainly do not wish to stay. Do what you can for us and we will be very thankful. Yours, truly,



All of the Fourteenth Maine.


AUGUSTA, October 6, 1862. I would respectfully ask the attention of General Thomas, AdjutantGeneral United States, to the foregoing application and ask it may be complied with if there be no good reason against it.


Governor of Maine.


Louisville, October 1, 1862. General BRAXTON BRAGG, Commanding Confederate Forces.

SIR: I have examined again carefully the cartel for the exchange of prisoners of war. I base my action in releasing certain prisoners from their parole on the reading of the fifth article:

Each party upon the discharge of prisoners of the other party is authorized to discharge an equal number of their own officers or men from parole, furnishing at the same time to the other party a list of their prisoners discharged and of their own officers and men relieved from parole, enabling each party to relieve from parole snch of their own officers and men as the party may choose. The lists this inutually furnished will keep both parties advised of the true condition of the exchange of prisoners.

There may be some doubt as to what is meant by the phrase "the lines” as used in the cartel. There is perbaps enough in the fourth and seventh articles to assume that it means a particular place to be

determined by mutual agreement between the parties where prisoners are to be delivered for parole or exchange. You evidently did not place that interpretation on it in sending the Munfordville prisoners to my camp at Cave City and I did not choose to insist on that interpretation myself. The prisoners paroled by me near Green River were left on your line of communication at Glasgow. They could with as little inconvenience to me and far more to you have been sent to your camp at Munfordville.

To repeat I understand the object of the cartel to be to establish an invariable system for the exchange of prisoners of war by which the delay, inconvenience and uncertainty of special negotiation may be avoided, and I think the plain interpretation of it is that each party may without any consultation whatever release any one or all of its paroled prisoners whenever it returns to the other party an equivalent of the prisoners of that party. (See the fifth section of the cartel.) The place for the delivery of prisoners would seem to be subject to special agreement but nothing else. The appointment of agents has in view merely convenience in keeping the lists and conducting the correspondence in regard to paroles and exchanges.

I am pained and mortified that you should have occasion to complain of the conduct of my troops toward any prisoners, sick or well, that may have fallen into their hands. I shall at all times condemn such conduct and punish it when the occasion requires. But it has seemed to me that the hardships which the prisoners of either party suffer in most cases rest too much on unfair statements, or result too much from the force of circumstances, or at the worst from inadvertence on the part of the party accused, to be made the ground of harsh denun. ciation between the authorities on either side. With great respect, your obedient servant,

D. C. BUELL, Major-General, Commanding.


Louisville, October 1, 1862. General BRAXTON BRAGG, Commanding Confederate Forces.

SIR: I have the honor to inform you that I am prepared to deliver to you on parole at any point you may see fit to designate convenient for us both the prisoners of the Third Georgia (Cavalry] Regiment captured by my troops on the 29th ultimo. Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

D. O. BUELL, Major-General, Commanding.

SAINT LOUIS, October 1, 1862. Brig. Gen. LEWIS MERRILL, Macon City, Mo.

Dispatch received. Rebel officers captured disguised should be tried as spies in our lines. There are a great many sneaks back of Canton and Alexandria. I wish you could send a force to arrest them. Some scoundrels were recently discharged by the provost-marshal-general; it may be right to rearrest them. A discharge must not give men immunities to do wrong. Put them through.
