Hilving had a i Unkn quarrel with the quartermaster As o who should Bury the Clond of the prison he and left two corpses in front of the office of the latter in Wagon halted in one of the Public streets near the Capitol and a hitching the horses in sight of a horrified crowd and abandoned the Yankees to Lake their chances of burial As the authorities other than himself might determine. It was a Day s scandal in Richmond and the brutal officer was removed. But for forty eight hours nearly two thousand prisoners were without a Mouthful of food until a subordinate of the prison moved by their cries or alarmed by their Mutiny found some barrels of Corn meal in the stores of the prison and fed it to them in buckets of Mush. It was through this humane Diligence that capt. Varner. A generous and efficient Man became afterwards charged with the subsistence of Hie prisoners. The Captain often i old in Richmond with great emotion his experience with the prisoners mutinous and Savage Tor want of food for surely Here is no fiercer Devil in the human composition none that dares More than hunger. He was walking in the school. Miss Walker was not handsome in feature .110.1 yet was she. Homely was rather Pinr Lar lie medium size vivacious and sprightly sometimes almost Graceful always in boy not spirits. Tier Bloomer. Dress was Rich neat and for she was one of the few women upon whom a Bloomer dress can be made to hang right. We have seen bloomers on Short fat dumpy women which made them lao Kat a dig to like a Beer Keg balanced on a couple of corks. We have seen them questioning. The Mary had come All. From new York to get a divorce from her husband. She had a Greving Story of persecution and maltreatment. We have no Way of proving that it was largely fictitious she Fertile in re sources an ingenious Way of proving it was True. Her proposition to her attorney at least to one attorney was to give in the testimony of herself As mrs. Alfred e. Miller against her husband arid her statements were to be confirmed by the affidavit of miss Mollie Walker who lived in the family at the time mrs. Miller was so abused. Mollie Walker being simply mrs. Miller under her Maiden name this style of doing business the Delhi lawyer objected to and the Case went to an adjoining county where the divorce was procured we know not upon what evidence. The worst of it was her husband forestalled her by getting a divorce from her some three weeks the first. If that couple Are not divorced with the decrees from the courts of two states to that effect we dont know How such a result could be accomplished. About this time the War began and Mary started for the front. There was a Chance to thrust herself Forward into i notoriety and such chances she never i let Elip. During he War she was frequently heard from on both sides of the Louee. When it closed she went to England and delivered medical lectures in London. If there were any physicians in her audience we will warrant they were astonished at her Doctrin Corner of eighteenth and Chestnut streets by an excited who informed him in a pompous Way have stopped your paper air. Me sir. You Don t say exclaimed Swain with consternation in his voice with me to and let us see if to cannot remedy the matter. It riches me that any one should Stop my paper. Down Chestnut Street to third the two proceeded. Arriving at the office or. Swain said Why my Siviy everything be cons to be going on Here As usual i thought you had stopped my paper. It then and Here the excited gent ionian whom the Leng walk by the had partly cooled Gail that he had stopped taking his one copy of the Ledger. Or. Swain was profuse in his apologies for having misunderstood the meaning of. His late subscriber s word and he had Given him the tramp from eighteenth Street to third Down Chestnut the Man won ton his Way Home a. Wiser if not a better Man marvelling at. The stupidity of editors in general and of in particular. Before he left however he ordered that the Ledger be still sent to his address. M m a Good anecdote of president Dwig lit.
