How Ho Was Rooeivod Into tho Con
From the Petroit Free Ft-ess.
One day in May, l*t, as Private S. F.
Nunnelee, of the Fifty-first Alabama regi
ment, was on picket about five miles from
Murfreesboro, Tenn., a Federal officer, cn
tirely unattended and carrying a flag of
truce, rode up anil inquired for the officer
in command, and through him for the Colo
nel of the regiment. Col. J. D. Webb was
on the line, a couple of miles to tho rear,
and Private Nunnelee Was sent to inform him
that the Federal* were desirous of passing
the noted Clement L. Vallandigham
within the Confederate lines, as Tier
order of the Secretary of war. This
move had been anticipated, as Vallandig
bam's sentence had been promulgated, but
tho Confederate government had no desire
to accept him Had he come as n recruit
for the ranks he would have been welcome,
but as a banished politician he was a guest
whom no one cared to entertain. Col. Webb
took his time about riding to the front, and
as he got there Nunnelee was sent down the
highway to investigate a second white flag.
This was waving above a vehicle drawn by
one horse and occupied by a Federal Lieu
tenant and Vallandigham. The officer was
driving, and the banished politician was
sitting very stiff and erect. But few words
passed as the officer drew rein. He said to
“Here is Vallandigham, sentenced to ban
And to the great politician he said:
“Come, I have no time to spare.”
“I protest against this outrage—solemnly
protest,” answered Vallandigham.
“Yes, but hurry up. I’ll take your trunk
off. Jump down, now—good day.”
And the officer sprang into the vehicle,
turned the horse round, and went off at a
fast trot, leaving Vallandigham and tho
Confederate soldier together on the high
way. Previous to the war Mr. Nunnelee
was editor of a paper at Eutaw, and Vallan
digham v.as one of its readers. As they
stood there the private soldier introduced
himself and the politician gave him a
hearty shake of the hand and asked:
“What on earth are you doing hepe I”
bln the ranks.”
“And are such men as you fighting in the
ranks of the Confederate armv ?”
“Thousands of us.”
“Then that settles it—the North can never
After some further talk the soldier carried
the politician’s trunk into a deserted negro
cabin a quarter of a mile away, and then
went for his Colonel. Webb came slowly
up, and as he dismounted at the hut the
banished Northerner said:
“Col. Webb, lam Clement L. Vallandig
ham, a citizen of Ohio and of the United
States, imprisoned, villified and banished
from my country for my love of liberty and
The Colonel stiffly answered:
“Mr. Vallandigham, as a citizen of Ohio
and the United States, you are my enemy.
As one banished for his love of liberty, for
which the South is fighting to-day, I bid you
welcome to the Southern Confederacy.”
They then entered into a general conver
sation lasting about half an hour, at the end
of which time Private Nunnelee secured a
conveyance and Vallandigham and his bag
gage were received inside the Confederate
lines. The incident made quite a stir at the
picket post, and could the men have had
their way they would have headed the man
for the Federal lines and obliged him to re
turn, as they counted far more on muskets
than speeches to win their cause.
Mr. Nunnelee is now. and has for many
years past been, the editor of the Tuscaloosa
Gazette, and the incidents of this narrative,
never before published, were taken from his
THE SLEEP OF DEATH.
A Disease Described by an African
Traveler With a Girl Victim.
From the Evening Star.
An interesting description of the “sleepy
disease,” peculiar to Africa, is gi%on in the
“Journal of an African Cruiser.” The per
sons attacked by this singular malady are
those who take little exercise and live prin
cipally on vegetables, particularly cossada
and rice. Some observers ascribe it to the
cassada, which is supposed to be strongly
narcotic. Not impc-Y.-iStf the climate has
much influence, the disease lieing most
prevalent in low and marshy situations.
Irresistible drowsiness continually weighs
down the patient, who can be kept awake
only for the few moments needful to take a
little food. When this lethargy has lasted
three or four months death comes—with a
tread that the patient cannot hear—and
makes the slumber but a little more sound.
I found the aspect of Queen Maumee’s
beautiful granddaughter inconceivably af
fecting. It was strange to see her so quiet,
in a sleep from which it might lie supposed
she would awake full of youthful life, and
yet to know this was no refreshing slumber,
DUt a spell in which she was fading away
from tne eyes that loved her.
This young girl was but 14 years of age.
With some difficulty she was roused and
awoke with a frightened cry—a strange and
broken murmur—as if she were looking
dimly outof her sleep and knew not whether
our figures were real or only the phantasies
of a dream.
Her eyes were wild aud glassy, and she
seemed to be in pain. While awake there
was a nervous twitching about her mouth
and in her fingers, but being again extended
on the mat and left to herself these symp
toms of disquietude passed away, and she
almost immediately sunk again into the
deep and heavy sleep in which we found
This poor, doomed girl had been suffer
ing—no, not suffering, tor, except when for
cibly aroused, there appears to be no uneasi
ness, but she had been lingering two month?
under this sleepy disease.

The country, and incidentally the uni
verse, is safe for another year. AVe have
been in great peril, but our danger has been
pointed out, and not only so, but the way to
safety has at the same time been so clearly
indicated that the wayfaring man, though
a Mugwump, need not err therein. An
abyss of frightful depth hits towered above

the deadly blight of its malarial breath in

an extract from the report of the Health Officer
to that body as follows:

this matter; they have examined under oath
