Emory college Burnt.
--In passing through Oxford
(says the Macon Confederate
) the Yankees
destroyed Emory College and all the buildings connected with the same, together with their contents.
This college was the property of the Methodist Church of that State.
Several fine libraries belonging to the various college societies, besides the one belonging to the college itself, were among the property burned.
Also, a large and extensive mineralogical cabinet, fine chemical apparatus, etc.--As the Federals
approached the town they were fired upon, and one of their number killed.
The college was burned in retaliation.
It is stated that the property cost nearly a half million before the war.
