letter from a niece of Bev. Dr. P.. J.
IJrtEKisrtirK-iF., of Kentucky, dated at Lex
ington, Kentuky. July 23, 1SI'2. Tho
Standard introduces it as follows :
Dr. Breckinridge was at his country
scat, about seventeen tuiles from Lex
ington; and as Morgan's cavalry were rx-
peeied to make ft raid on Lexington, lr.
B. urged bis female friends who wero
then there, to go out to his place for se
curity. They did so. One day while
Dr. H. had (tone to (ovfn, expecting to re
turn at six o clock in the evening, a com
pany of mounted Texas Rangers appear
ed at his rcsidetico and planted a guard
around it, several armed men having
made repealed inquiries as to the hour
hen Dr. ii. was expected to return from
town. Several ell'orts were made by the
family . to apprise Dr. B. of the danger
that awaited his return, but the messen
gers were all intercepted by tho pickets,
except one, who, hy making a wide cir
cuit, succeeded, in reaching tho road on
which Dr. Ii. was returning, just in time
to prevent him from riding into the lines
of his blood-thirsty robbers. Providence
thus delivered Iht valuable Union man,
wliose services have been so eminently
useful to tho national cause in Kentucky
and elsewhere, from the violent hands of
his enemies and the enemies ot his coun
try, w ho sought to murder him, nr at
least drug him into captivity worse than

A man who has been so inspired by

ottnsellor ; this bold defender of tho
Union ; this man so richly endowed with
Christian courage, sagacity, and wisdom,
may be spared to the country at least
w hile the storm is beating upon it.
1 he letter, which was hurriedly writ
ten by a niece, who was at the time in
the family of Dr. B., will be read with
lxtbactthom thk I.UTTLIt.
When I came homo from the hospital,
on Saturday morning, 1 heard the first
news oi morgan's approach, lie was
near Lebanon, and the people here wrre
in a perfect panic. Our last regiment
bad gone a day or two before, and tearing
that troops could not reach here from
over the river, the Home Hoards-were
collected and thrown out on the Danville
road as pickets, Morgan's approach being
in mat direction, and some ot our poor
lellows Iroui the hospitals wore put un
der arms, in case of an immediate at
tack. All over the town guns and pistols
were snapping, through thai day aud
night, everybody loading and getting
ready for the worst, and wo did th
same, turning the parlor into an armory ;
lor the determination was. if not hint:
lse could keep Iho guerrillas out, to
shoot from the housea at them. Tho
next day uncle Robert came into town,
and urged and insisted that we, women
and children, should go out to his farm.
(which was a place of perfect safety, iu
iho opposite direction lo that by which
Morgan was coming.) and leave Iho gi n
tlemen free to join the Home Guards, and
close the house if they chose. 1 wanted
to atay in town, for 1 had a kind of in-
stiucl we should not bo safer in the
country, and then it would be so dread-
lul to wait and watch and wonder, and
perhaps to hear the firing in town, aud
have no news of how tho battle was go
ing on; but we wero over-persuaded,
aud started oil on Sunday evening.
Iraiu of cairtages, full ol refugees, aoin
of win. in had come forty miles, Hying for
their lives, to take refuge in Lexington,
where they Ihuught there were soldiers
aud safety, many of them the wives and
mothers of Union men for whom Morgan
had a peculiar hatred fur their activity
ami iiiiliience, and had threatened them,
as he did uncle Robert, with hanging as
soon as he caught them. i he night
passed quietly, but I wa in no linnior
for sleep, aud so slojd picket for the
rest. '! Ucr it something terrible to me
in being roused front a sound sleep by
au alarui, and when there is any danger
I am tuoie comfortable in lilting up and
listening, even if they did laugh at m
next morning. I wa thankful before all
was over that I had learned to kep
awake. The next uioruing Uncle Robert
insisted on going into town, laying, iu an
swer to our fears, that there was no danger
and that he would be out at six in tho
evening. We were not a very united family,
tor among us had come out aocie seces
sionists, connected with u by certain
ties, and in danger of potne unpleasant
scene in town, all the Union men
were much roused, and many houses were
searched for arms, Ac, but no mention
was made of our opinion now. Early
in the afternoon, a loan raine and aalrd
whin uncle Robert would come from
towu, aud a servant, suspecting uothiut;,
told him. Soon afterwards, thre other
nit n came, all armed, asking the same
thing, aod this tint our answer was very
vague. W did not know, be niiht not
(which was true) come stall. There
waa evidently komutblng wrong. It
could not have been many minute after
this that as I wa sitting ou the porch,
looking through the trots at tho bluo,
distant hills, und thinking of you all,
and wondering when theso stormy time
would lie over, and 1 should see you all
once more, it was as I, as sitting so, that
1 wa aroused by bearing tb servants
calling to each other to "look I look I"
and then they all came running ronod
the house, calling li me as they Went
past, and ran down the Lilt in front of
me, and polnlingup the road that lay In
full view some hundred yards, and then
lost itself in th woods, flocked as they ,
pointed, and saw w hat I shall never fur
get. Up the road as far as I could see,
and coming out of the woods, were the
wildest looking horsrmas, -riding three
abreast, thu sun shining on a long steel -blade
at their side. The servants ,
thought they were our soldiers, and ran
down to meet Ihem, poor foolish things.
liitle knowing, a we did when we had a
nearer view, that they were. Morgan's
Texan Rangers t What happened in the
next few moments is all confusion to me.
I remember hurrying into the house to '
tell tho others as soon as I saw the horse- :
men turning into our gate, and finding
them pale and anxious, kuowing it all,
and then watching a group of ladies and
children (those who Were in special dan
ger) creeping down stairs and out to some
hiding place. I remember coming back
to the porch and bearing one of my
cousins asking for her baby, and then
rushing down tho hill almost among the
men, where they had stopped at th
spring-home, to take the child (ml of
danger. Then one of the Secession la
dies came out and said she would go
down sud talk to tho men, and so my
cousin turned back wilh her and went -d
nvnlo the spring. It was evident at
once that they knew the lady to bo of
their own party, and, though they had .
been frying to Mrsuado the servants they j'
were Uniou soldiers, there was no doubt
they wero come to arrest Unci Robert
and to carry out their threat to hang him,
but they taid they meant no harm to us,
and w hether they respected the house on
account of the Secessionists in it, or
whether they pitied a defenceless group
of , women and children, so it wa that .
they turned and rode away,. ten of them
who had ridden up toward the house
turning back with the rest. They left a
horseman at each end of the yard as
pickets, and forty of their numW (there
wore near one bnndred in all) camped
that night in a wood just at the ide of
us, waiting still for "old Bob Breckin
ridge," as they called him. They were a
wild-looking set. 1 hope 1 may never
look on their like again, and lhat I have
bad my last glimpse of a Texan Ranger.
As soon as they had Ielt the yard,
three messenger wrre sent by diflerent
roads, to turn Uncle Hubert back, and
it was not till they had been turned back
and threatened with shooting by the
rebel pickets, who caught them several
times, that one, taking a wide circuit,
got past them, and, by God's mercy,
reached tho turnpike just as Uncle Rub
ber! was passing it, and so saved his life.
From that timo till we returned to town,
two days alter, we sent and received
constant notes to and from town, by
these faithful servants, but under con
stant terror of detection. There wero
spies all about us, and if it was known
t ut we were sending information to the
headquarters in town, we should never
Send any more. That night a force was
all ready to come out from towu aud
tike these) men of whom we had written
them, and just at the last minute the of
ficer in command at Lexington refused
to let them go, and when men, whose
wives and children were out wi'h us,
implored him to give them men, or let
them collect the men themselves, hs re
fused. It is whispered that he was a
traitor, and the next day a new com
mander was sent, hut the men had e
caied from our neighborhood, and Joined
the band further on; but all tlirocgh
that night wo waited and listened for
our boldiera from town, while from
the camp iu tho wood cam the oaths
and shouts and pistol shot ef Mor
gan's men, who had as at their mercy.
We made our preparations fur fight or
biding, stitching our money in our
clothes, burying our valuables, and burn
ing our notes; l Inn we took all th gun
that were in the different parts of the
house into our own .rooms, that at least
I hey might not be used against u, and
locked ourselves into our room. That
night and next 1 want to forget. Wa '
