GENERAL MAC. "There, shut your eyes and go to sleep like a good boy, and in the
morning I will have a nice new Victory, with lots of Prisoners for you!"
This View of the Block (split) out
of which "THE WOODEN GUNS" were made, showeth how the Editors do sometimes make
things up out of their own Heads. [Vide N. Y. Tribune.]
HOW JEFF DAVIS IS SAVING THE SOUTH.
ANOTHER GREAT ORIGINAL STORY IN
THE NEW YORK WEEKLY,
By Mrs. HELEN CORWIN FISHER,
The Wolf of
Mrs. Fisher is well known to the
readers of THE NEW YORK WEEKLY as the writer of the pleasant and entertaining
sketches under the nom de plume of "Nonesuch," and those who read her serials,
"Carrie Emerson Wilde" and "The Curse of Everleigh," can not but be pleased with
an opportunity to judge of her abilities in a more extended effort. She is a
young writer who has won no small popularity by her delightful sketches and
serials and bids fair, with care and study, to ultimately take rank among the
first lady writers in the land. We only ask for her, what we are sure she will
get, a careful perusal of her forthcoming serial by the numerous readers of THE
NEW YORK WEEKLY. It can not fail to be fresh and entertaining as everything is
that conies from her pen.

These sketches were written to
lessen the tedium of my lengthy imprisonment; and if they serve to recall to my
prison-companions the scenes enacted in the old Warehouse, and enlist the
interest and sympathies of the reader, they will have accomplished all that is
desired by the publication of them.
With the exception of "Homeward
Bound," they were all written within prison walls, and brought to the North sewn
securely in the lining of an overcoat.
I confidently trust to my
brother-officers for their testimony as to their fidelity of description of our
"domestic economy," and the accuracy of detail in the varied incidents in our
prison-life in the Tobacco Warehouse.
