OUR RELEASED PRISONERS AT CHARLESTON, S. C., EXCHANGING THEIR RAGS FOR NEW CLOTHING.--[SKETCHED BY WILLIAM WAUD.]

(Previous Page) tending. His death occasioned the most sincere regret. It occurred in Paris, under peculiarly melancholy circumstances, December 1, 1864. He died suddenly from a fit of apoplexy while at the Hotel du Louvre. The country will have occasion for self congratulation if our next Minister to France shall be found a statesman as honorable and as judicious as was Mr. DAYTON.

OUR RELEASED PRISONERS AT
CHARLESTON.

IN previous numbers we have illustrated the reception of our released prisoners off Savannah. The exchange was scarcely half completed at that point when the affair was interrupted, and afterward resumed at Charleston. We give three sketches in

this number relating to the exchange at this latter point. It is supposed that Colonel MULFORD is engaged in another effort to renew the exchange. According to rebel authorities there have been confined in Libey Prison at Richmond during the past year 31,000 Federal prisoners. They claim during the war to have had in " Libey" 125,000 men. In our last number we gave illustrations of the prison-

pen at Millen, where a large number of our prisoners have recently been confined. Late advices from Savannah seem to indicate that SHERMAN'S cavalry has undertaken an expedition to release our prisoners in the South. This rests on the authority of a dispatch from HARDEE, saying that SHERMAN was dispatching a cavalry expedition into Southwestern Georgia.
