REBEL PRISONERS IN THE DUNGEON OF THE STATE HOUSE AT JEFFERSON CITY, MISSOURI.-[SKETCHED BY JAMES A. GUIRL.]

THE WAR IN MISSOURI.

WE publish herewith, from sketches by Mr. J. A. Guirl, a picture of THE REBEL PRISONERS IN

THE DUNGEON OF THE STATE HOUSE AT JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., and a picture of A REBEL SHOOTING A UNION PICKET. Mr. Guirl writes: "The large, rough man sitting on the floor, with plate,

bucket, etc., before him, is a desperate fellow, and is confined in the dungeon most of the time. He is holding a cracker in one hand, and cursing the Unionists for not giving him something better to

eat. The man with a cap behind the barrel is the son of Gov. Jackson. The guard standing with his gun at the door is in a very awkward position, but he was standing in that way when I sketched him."
