John Morgan in 1864. by Basil W. Duke, Brigadier-General, C. S. A. General John H. Morgan escaped from the prison at Columbus, Ohio, November 27th, 1863, Generals Morgan and Duke and sixty-eight other officers of Morgan's command, captured in Ohio, at the close of July, 1863 [see Vol. III., p. 634], were confined in the State penitentiary at Columbus. On the night of November 27th, Morgan and Captains J. C. Bennett, L. D. Hockersmith, C. S. Magee, Ralph Sheldon, Samuel Taylor, and Thomas H. Hines escaped from their cells, having cut a way through the cell-walls into an air-chamber, and tunneled the outer foundation-walls of the prison at the end of the chamber. The tools used in cutting away the masonry and the earth were two small knives, and the work was accomplished in twenty days, of five hours labor each day. After leaving the prison the party separated. General Morgan and Captain Hines took the cars at Columbus for Cincinnati. At Cincinnati they crossed into Kentuck

miles south-west of Rome, via Van Wert, Cedartown, and Cave Spring. At the latter place Major-General Wheeler, with a portion of his command, joined me from Tennessee. We arrived at Coosaville on the 10th. In a dispatch to General [Richard] Taylor, October 7th, I requested that Forrest be ordered to operate at once in Tennessee: Your dispatch of the 6th received. This army being in motion, it is of vital importance that Forrest should move without delay, and operate on the enemy's raiy in Kentucky, and determined to make the campaign which followed, unless withheld by General Beauregard On the 28th of September General Beauregard had been placed in control of the operations in the departments commanded by Generals Hood and Taylor. His previous operations in defense of Petersburg are described by General Beauregard later in this work.--editors. or the authorities at Richmond.

ed on to record the loss of one of them, to whom the expressions there used were most peculiarly applicable, and to whose able and zealous exertions the interests of liberty, virtue, and religion were deeply indebted.—Edgar Taylor, the son of Samuel Taylor, Esq., of New Buckenham, in the county of Norfolk, and great grandson to the subject of this memoir, was born in 1793. He settled in London as a solicitor, and quickly attained to great eminence in that department of the legal profession;from the active exercise of his profession, and at the comparatively early age of forty-six we have to deplore the loss of one most eminently qualified by abilities, attainments, and disposition to tender important service to every good cause. Mr. Taylor's religious principles were founded on careful and earnest inquiry, and were happily effectual to support him under the severe trials of bodily suffering to which he was subjected. These he sustained with fortitude and resignation, and died fu

of the students educated in any institution, and those the most distinguished for talents and character, agreed in adopting religious opinions of a certain class, it seems reasonable to conclude that this was the prevailing tendency of the instructions they received, influenced, perhaps unconsciously, by the private opinions of the instructor. Thus we find that Dr. Thomas Dixon, who in the year 1710, and for several years afterwards conducted an academy at Whitehaven, was the preceptor of Taylor of Norwich, Benson, Rotheram, Winder of Liverpool, and several others well known in the succeeding age as decided Arians, we seem authorized to infer that he had himself a leaning towards the same principles. Little is known (at least we have not been able to meet with any record) of his early history. In 1719 he quitted Whitehaven to settle at Bolton in Lancashire, where he remained till his death, in 1733. It is not known that any production of his found its way before the public. His
ittee to prepare business. On motion, the resolution of Mr. Gant was laid on the table, and a committee of two from each Presiding Elder's district appointed to report business. The committee is composed of the following gentlemen: Col. Ridgely, Baltimore county; Charles J. Baker, Baltimore; W. H. Edes, Georgetown; E. C. Brown, Loudoun; D. M. Wood, Botetourt; Dr. Black, Montgomery, Va., James N. Davis, Washington; Dr. Z. Howard, Montgomery, Md.; Abraham Nulton, Winchester; Samuel Taylor, Hampshire, Jacob Mohler, Rockingham; Dr. E. G. Moorman, Rockingham; Joel McPherson, Lewisburg; William Smith, Monroe. Hon. Mr. Daniel, of Baltimore, offered a resolution asking for a joint committee on the part of the Convention and Conference to prepare business, that there might be harmony of action. Judge Bond opposed, and Mr. Daniel supported the resolution. On motion, it was laid on the table. The Convention then adjourned to meet tomorrow at 9 ½ A. M. The

Jones and James McTyre The following committee were appointed to disburse the money to the volunteers, and to such of their families as might need it: District No. 1--J. Hobbs, E. Clarke, and William Garnett. District No. 2-- Edwin Williams, A. H. Drewry and Dr. J. Howlett. District No. 3--Silas Crasham, Samuel Taylor, and H K. Graves, District No. 4--Jas.

I have been thus particular in writing out the names of the different committees, in order to accomplish a two fold object: 1st, to draw the attention of the capitalists of the community to the county bonds as a safe and desirable investment of their funds, besides the aid they can fu
three Minnie balls in his body. Michael Davis had an ankle shattered. James F. Welch was badly shot in the foot. Several others were less seriously wounded. The house of Mr. Matthews received three bullets. One of his daughters was struck by a spent ball. Only one of the soldiers, John Dick, a German, has been recognized. Immense crowds of people filled the streets after the occurrence. The most intense indignation was expressed against the Germans (United States volunteers.) Mayor Taylor addressed the excited crowd, and induced them to disperse, under the promise that no further violence should be done. The city was comparatively quiet during the evening and night, a heavy rain storm preventing the of a large crowd. The State troops were released from the arsenal last evening, and came to the city on a steamer, fearing to trust themselves among the Germans of the lower Wards, even under escort. They all complain bitterly of bad treatment during their confinement a
