GEN. JOHN MORGAN.
A True Version c! ike Killing' or tbe
Ever Bineo tho death of tho famons rebq

niindri of the present genoratiou an U) tho ati

Tho lati-et version of tho affair appears in
tho correspondence of tlio Enquirer, dated at
Columbus. ).. rc-it .ratiiiir tho old btorv that
(ieneral Morgan wan brutally murdered by tlio
loyal TeiiuohHou troojm under command of
(ieneral A C. Gill'-m, with the-additional ehargo
that hi.s dead lody wan tied to a horsn'H tail,
and dragged thro:t;l. the Htre;ts, of Greenvilla
An a ni' tnlier of Gen. Giilem'ri commaiid.and
in jutice to tho loyal East Ti uuc-hm :h.b, I ask
Kpaco in your excellent paper to btato brielly
tiio circuiiiHtancen attending tho death of Gen.
Morgan, as rememlerod by nio after the lapse
of over eighteen ycirn: On the night of Sep-
temluT .'5, Wii, fien. A. C. Gillein, in command
of the Eighth, Ninth, and Thirteenth regimcnta
of TeiineHHto cavalry, and tlio Tenth Michigan
cavalry went into camp at :u11'b Gap, a point
fifty-Hix iuiien east of Kno.willa On tho name
night ficn. Morgan, whoHo command numbered
about three thousand troopa, encamped at
Greenville, eighteen miles it of IJullV Gap.
Neither commander wan aware of the eloi-o
proxiimly of the other. About 10 o'clock at
night Gen. Gillem received information that a
Hinall force of rebel, were eiii:amped on the
road between Greenville aud Lull's Gap, and
at once conceived tho idea of capturing them.
J o accomplish thm he ordered Colonel lnger-
ton. of the Thirteenth Tennessee cav
alry, to move his regiment bv an unfrequented
road to tho rear of thm force. Loio
nel Iugerton, guidod bv one Captain SSizcniore,
who was familiar with tho country, after
marching over a moat difiicult road through a
Hcvero rain utnrm, which laHted all ruinit, hiic
ceeded in reaching the state road a a point one
mile wotit of Greenville, and placed his rcgi
ment in position facing iSull'a Gap (except two
Companion, which were faced in the oppo.sito
direction an a precautionary movement) to
await tho Hinall force of rebels which were to
be attackod by tho remainder of General Gil-
lem'tj command, and which he hoped to inter
cept and capture. Colonel lnscrton was and
in ignorance or the tact that uenerai Jiorgan
with bin command was only a miloaway, and it
was while waiting the approach of the enemy
from tho oppomto direction that ho received
tho Htaitlmif information, through a air
Williams, that General Morgan's command was
-encamped on Coliejro Hill, just east of Green
viiie.aud tlio general and ins Btau were at lier
house in tho town. Tho colonel ordered
Major Wilcox, in charge of the two companies
which were iu position facing the town, to pro
ceed at once to the house of .! rs. v llliams and
capturo Morgan and hi.s stafl'. Wilcox accord
ingly surrounded tho premises of Mrs. Wil
liams, consisting of a liouso located on a tri-
mgular shaped lot containing an area of about
throe acres, part of winch was a vineyard.
Finding themselves surrounded, the general
and his staff officers ran out into tho gardi.n
looking ont for a chance of escape. Just at
this tune a soldier in his shirtsleeves was dia
coverod, crouched behind a cluster of grape
vine, ami was oruere i in huricuuer. i-inoiiig
that ho was disco v. ivd, instead of snrrender-

and John G. liurehfieid, of Company C, Thir

his identity was a pistol lying by his side, upon

had also been identiliod bv some of his staff
ofticers who had been captured, it was placed
upon a horse and hastily conveyed back, tow
ards our regiment, closelv pursued bv the
rebel troops, whom the hring had apprised of
the presence of our forces. General Gillem
soon came up with tho remainder of his com
mand, and a sharp engagement took place be
tween his brigade and Morgan's troops, now
under command of Gen. basil Duke, resulting
in tho defeat of the latter. After tho tight the
boclv of Gen Morgan was delivered over to h'.3
comrades and friends under a flag of truce.
I he report, started at the time, that Gc:i.
Morgan had been murdered by the Tennessee
troops was publicly denied Ly Col. Clay, of his
(Morgan's) staff, in a card published ia Tha
Knoxviilo Whig. Col. Clay, who was then
a prisoner iu our hands, stated that Gen. Mor
gan had often said he would never again sur
render, and it was his adherence to this reso
lution that cost him his lifo. Another incident
related to us at the time, pertaining to tho
death of Gen. Morgan, might bo of interest to
those or a superstitious turn or mind. !he
night previous to his death was a dismal,
stormy night, raining almost incessantly, and
the general having no adecuato shelter from
tho storm, and having sent out detachments of
troops on all the roads from which an enemy
might bo expected to advance, he de
cided to seek shelter for himself aud staff in
town. After he had been at the house of Mrs.
Williams for some time, he remarked to some
of his othcers that he felt as it he should return
to camp, that he was oppressed bv a mysterious
foreboding of evil, and once or twice docided to
return to camp, but was lulled into a feeling of
security by the more cheerful mood of his
companions, aud finally docided to remain.
Keflectina: upon ins tragical ileatu tneu bo near
at hand, ono is led to wonder if some good
angel, whoso voice tho rebel chieftain failed to
heed, was whispering warnings of Ilia impend
The statement of the correspondent above
referred to, that Gen. Morgan was killed by a
deserter from his own command on account of
some personal grievance, is erroneous.
Andrew Cambpell, who waj supposed to have
nred the shot that killed Gen. Morgan, although
a deserter from the rebel army, had never known
Morgan, and did not have the remotest idea
that ha was tiring at Morgan. I will add that
Campbell is a native of Ireland, and sin j ttie

The Krlialeustcinc 35yKtery Solved.
New York Sun:
In many parts of Switzerland are often found
smooth flat stones, evidently hand-polished,
and covered with dots, lines, circles and half
circles. The origin and uso of these etonea,
known among country people as Schalensteine,
has loni been a mooted point among the learned.
Some have thought they were charms, others
that thev were meant to commemorate tho
dead, or that tho sins on them were unde
cipherable hieroglyphics; but it has been re
served tor Herr Itodiger, or Uellach,
in Solothurn, to suggest a theory
concerning them which seems to
meet all the necessities of tho case.
The Schalensteine, he says, are topographical
cnarts, as a comparison or them with sny
modern map of the districts in which thev are
found will show. Tho engraved dots corres
pond with the existing towns and villages, tha
lines witu roads. i.ven the lords and moun
tain passes are indicated. Herr Ilodiger has
examined many of those stones from various
parts of the country, and he poBfes.-es a col
lection, picked up in .oiottmrn, winch form to
gether a map of the entire canton. Auother
significant circumstance is that tho Schalen-
steino are mostly found at intervals of about
two hours (say six miles) from each other, and
at spots where roads meet

A Look of Thad Stevens' Hair.
That genial fellow, John L. Thomas, of Bal
timore, tolls this good story about the great
commoner of Pennsylvania: "When I was in
congress I used to be a frequenter of tho room
of old Tliad Steveu3. One day, whilo talking
together, a visitor entered unexpectedly.
Sho Tras a tall, raw-boned woman,
with ox-bow spectacles on the bridge
of har nose, and a bulky green ging-
hnm umbrella. She handed Mr. Stevens a card
with the words, "Abigail Meecham. Kenne-
buukport, Me.," and said: "Do I havetho honor
oi beholuing tho Hon. rhaddeus Stevens, of
Pennsylvania?" Somewhat embarrassed. Mr-
Stevens acknowledged his identity, and uskud
his visitor to be seated. "Thank you, no," was
the rcplv. "but I wish to sav. sir", that in niv
quiet home down east I have heard of your
glonoua efforts in behalf of the emaneip'ated
slave, of your heroic treatment of the southern
question, and of your undving hostility to the
enemies of mv country, and I have traveled
hither, sir, to ask tho privilege of shaking
your hand.' She shook it. 'Now. sir. I have
one more favor to ask. It is a souvenir of this
interview. I wish to take home with me, if I
ma j- be so bold as to ask it,' a lock of tho great
commoner's hair.' Old Thad waa for a mo
ment moro embarrassed than I ever saw him
before, then he smiled faintly; he put his hand
to his scalp-lock, and, lifting hia brown wig
bodily, laid it upon the table, leaving hia pate
as bald aa a billiard ball. There ia every
hair on my head, madam; make vour choice
of a lock.' "

IiiiKM-iiraey or HtullNties of I lllterrto
A very nv.gract irrtsr of ntatement mat'
congress by Senator lil dr, of New Hamp.inii. ,
is exposed in the report of John 1$. Peaslee,
superintendent of tin Cincinnati public
schools. In bis speech on his educational bill
to spend a great many millions for freo in
struction in the more illiterate states Senator
Llair went into statistics witli amazing inac
curacy, In Cincinnati, lie said, tho average
attendance in the schools ia less than one
third tho number of children, and 5I.0K aro
are not enrolled at all. "There are," continued
the speaker, fairly roaring in misinformation,
"more than 40,i!(K children in the groat city of
Cincinnati to-day who are growing up in ig
noraace as dense as that in tho jungles in"
Africa, while they aro subjected to tho influ
ence of tho sharpened culture of civilized
This is truly alarming, and discreditablo if
true, and all the more mysterious because i t is
very hard to find in Cincinnati a child of
school age whoso education has been wholly
neglected. Tho trouble with Senator Blair is
that his statistics have thrown him down and
are rolling him over and over. Ho takes tho
total number of unmarried youths iu Cincin
nati, between the ages of six and
twenty-one, and subtracts tha number
em oiled in schools. In this way ho
has thousands of our most highly educate !
youths, including graduates of the high
schools of Yale and Harvard, placed smon.'
the illiterates such as roam the thickets of th.i
dark continent Youths between eighteen
arid twenty-one should not bo reckoned in his
estimate, for tho high school graduates aver
age little over eighteen years of age. Every
unmarried person iu Cincinnati between tho
ages of six and twenty-one is classed as an
illiterate by tlio senator unless counted in tho
school enrollment Many children are not sent
to school until they rca-.-h the age of seven or
eight, a fact showing another leak in tho sena
tor's figures. Many children leave school aftei
finishing tho district or intermediate courso.
They are not illiterate by a good deal. Mr.
l'easlce states the facts in the casoclearlv when
he remarks: "The actual number of childrer
over ten yeara of age, bom aud brought up iu
our northern cities, who never attended school
at all, and who are mentally and physically
able to do so, is but a small percentage of tho
youth of school ago; certainly not many of this
class can be found in Cincinnati. Tho number
who canuot read and wr.to is still less.
The Tramp aud the Ios.

A big, lonesome-looking dog sat at a gate of
a house on Cass aveiti'i yesterday, eyes full of
tears and hia whole body shaking with cold A
tramp, who had neither overcoat nor mittens,
and whose bare toes peeped through his boots,
waa making his way up the street in search of
the right kind of a side entrance, whon he es
pied the dog and croused over and said:
"Well, now, this ia an unexpected pleasure!
Upon my soul, but I have found one living
thing in this town aa p.orly off aa myself. Say
old fellow, whore d. you hang out?"
Tho dog looked at him through his tears, but
had nothing to say.
"Tough, isn't it?" continued the man. "I
look old and seedy, and you are the homliest
dog I ever saw. That strikes a fraternal chord
and we meet on a level. I haven't had a square
meal for a week, and you haven t seen a bo:ie
for ten days. Even again, eh?"
I ho dog shivered and whined, and got in
and sat down, and tho tramp drew closer and
"No home, eh? Neitner have L No one to
whistle for you? Same here. That's even

wdiilo you have to grin aud bear it. That's
where'l've got tho doadwood on you. I can

Aa the tramp started to go the dog reached
out and snapped hia leg and then took a run

ho wheeled around. "I said I was ahead, but
I'll take it back! You cau lnnch on my legs,
