    LINCOLN’S KILLED, WOUNDED AND PRISONERS. – The conduct of the Federal government towards those unfortunate members of its “Grand Army,” is infamous; and if any more yankees volunteer or enlist, with the expectation of similar treatment after every battle, they must be fools indeed. Not an attempt made to carry off their wounded, or to see to their needs in captivity; not a man sent to bury their dead; not a proposition made to relieve any of their men held in Richmond as prisoners of war, by exchanging for them such of ours as they may hold as prisoners. It is infamous; showing an indifference to the fate of their soldiers such as was probably never before heard of.
