A note from Sam. Houston, Jr., about the son-in-law Imposture. --The following note from Sam. Houston, Jr., son of the hero of San Jacinto, throws some doubt upon the assertion made some time since that Gen. Houston was dead: To the Editor of the Chicago Times: I have heard that a man calling himself Rev. Charles Clark, and professing to be a son of ex- Gov. Clark, of Texas, and son-in-law of General Sam. Houston, lately made some statements concerning the alleged death of his father-in-law, at a public meeting held in Boston. Now, this reverend gentleman is certainly an impostor of the blackest dye, as Gov. Clark's eldest child is a boy twelve years of age, and my eldest sister is but a little girl at school. I left home last March, and my father, Gen. Houston, was then in better health than he had been for years. I am respectfully, Sam. Houston, Jr., Prisoner of War. Camp Douglas, Aug. 2, 1862.

Affairs at the North. --One of Morgan's men, Mr. Samuel G. Grasty, of Danville, Va., formerly an officer in the Wise Legion, who escaped from Camp Douglas, near Chicago, has reached this city after several weeks' tour through the North. Getting out from the prison, where the fare consisted of three crackers per day and a little piece of pickled pork, from the effect of which the men were dying rapidly, he walked to Chicago, where a good secession friend furnished him with clothing and "greenbacks" to start for home. Upon reaching Baltimore he found that city in a complete state of terrorism. A Southern friend begged him "for God's sake to get away from there, as there was not one Southern man in a hundred who was not spotted." Taking this advice, he went to New York city, where there is not a sign of war, and where a man can talk "secesh" to his heart's content, so he does not go into the streets to do it. At the boarding-house there were a majority of secession boarders, who

Gen. Morgan's escape through Kentucky. --The Atlanta Appeal announces the arrival there of two Kentuckian, of Morgan's command, who escaped from Camp Douglas in the latter part of November. They proceeded to Louisville — their homes. The Appeal says: On their way out from Louisville, they accidentally fell in with Gen. Morgan in Nelson county, near Bardstown, with whom they remained until they reached this side of the Tennessee river. --They found Gen. Morgan with an or whip in his
entire trip of these gentlemen, from Chicago to Dalton, was marked with almost uninterrupted success, though they mention many hairbreadth escapes, which only served to give zest to the adventure.
They are of opinion that at least half of Morgan's men have escaped from Camp Douglas, as hardly a day passed that a greater or less number did not make their escape.
When the news of Morgan's escape reached the camp, a body of forty of his men broke over the guards, most of whom made their escape.

A Yankee account of the treatment of Confederate prisoners. --The Chicago Times, gives the account which follows of the treatment of our soldiers at Camp Douglas. We give the paragraph in full: Reports have been circulated round the city during the past few days to the effect that the prisoners in Camp Douglas were being shot down promiscuously and remorselessly by the soldiers of the guard, without real cause. It was not for some time possible to trace these rumors to any reliableCamp Douglas were being shot down promiscuously and remorselessly by the soldiers of the guard, without real cause. It was not for some time possible to trace these rumors to any reliable source or to ascertain the exact extent to which these abuses have been carried. --A little inquiry has, however, developed the fact that, whether the reports be true or not, there is at least very strong reason to believe them so. It is said that Col. De Land has issued orders that if any prisoners shall fall to comply instantly with any requirement of a soldier belonging to the guard he shall be shot down. This regulation may be necessary enough in its strict acceptation as requiring o
