Not captured.

--Geo. A. Ellsworth, Morgan's telegraph operator, was not captured at McMinnville, as reported. He writes as follows to the Rebel

‘ I was not captured, although I was on the train that was taken by the Yankees at Morrison. I made my escape to the woods, about 250 yarns, on my crutches. I lay there until dark; I witnessed the destruction of the train cars, and depot, by the Yankees, about 700 in number. There were some twenty passengers on the train. Above half the number were captured.
