Lieutenant Colonel B. Dudley Pritchard,
the Captor of Jeff. Davis.
We ekll the attention of our reiden to
the follow ing intereuing sketch of Colonel
Pritchkrd, the lucky emptor of Jeff. Dayia,
from the pen of an acquaintance and
friend of hit. . It will be seen that Cava
faoga county can claim him aa one of her
Editobb Lcadcb: Being perponally
acq 'lain ted with Lieutenant Colonel B. D.
Prichard, of the 4th Michigan cavalry, the
writer txcuiea bimelf lor treapaming upon
your attention and apace, with the pre
sumption that he poeEegsea in formation of
general interest concerning the man who
eojoya the enviable distinction of being the
imrrwdiate captir of the great leader of the
B. Dudley Pritchard U an Ohioan by
birth, being a native of Sjlon, Cayahoga
county. My acquainttnee with him com
menced while he waa a atudent at the Jo-
lectrc Institute, Hiram, Ohio, early in Sj9,
After leaving that echool he studied law
for a time, and soon after, going to Michi
gan, wei admitted to the bar, and engaged
ia the praclloa of hit profusion at Allegan
in that State. Desiring the advantages of
a more thorough legal training than he had
erjoytd, he left the practice and became a
student at the Univenrity of Michigan,
entering the depvtinnt of law in that
School with the clas of '63. At this time
he was about twenty-seven years of age:
and bis principles of life being settled, and
bis character formed, one could form a just
estimate of him aa a man. lie seemed des
tined to become a man of mark in the
University, and although, his eoi nection
ith it was brief, eariy gained a worthy
reputation in the department of which be
was a member. ia was decidedly modest,
retiring and unobtrusive, and did not there
fore become quickly or widely known.
Among bis acquaintances he had the
rare d if Unction ol heme: empnalically
popular, while almost always espousing
the unpopular side of questions of general
interest and ducuasions, in the clats and
in the society. He was always found in
the minority because of bis horest con
victions, rather than taste for odd distiction
His religious and politic! views were
especially peculiar. In politics, he was
of tl-at class ot thinkers and agitators
which has lost distinctiveness in the great
revolution in political opinion. He
was then a strong "Abolitionist."
Always radical, he was never a fanatic As
debator be possessed much power. Al
though a severe student, and man of criti
cal subolanship., yet he evr manifested
more strong reasoning and practical sense,
tban taste tor the display of rhetorical arts
and graces. In conversation, while some-
bat given to controversy, ne was never
an obtrusive proselyte, but pleasant and
genial. Deep tealed earnestneu was tn
distinguishing trait of his character. This
leature in him is pernnps in pan owinr to
the fact that his earlier experience had been
pissed amid the more rough, aa verse influ
ences of life. His personal habits were to
every re? pect above reproach and he gov
erned himself according to the most strin
gent rules of morality.

them conversing together about the 1st of
April ; there was a third party, and when
I approached O'ljaughlin took me aside

the well dressed one say: 1 thiok he will
come out now (referring, he supposed, to
the President) ; he then went into the sa
loon: staid long enough to take a drink;
came up as if ha was becoming intoxicated;
whispered to the roughest looking man,
and then went into the pssaage that leads
from the, stage to tbe street; then the
smallest one stepped up just as the well
dressed one appeared again, and called out

an hour and a hall before the President
was shot. I saw Booth again about half
pst ten, going out of the beck door, j'ist
after tbe assassination. He had a hand
kerchief in his hand and appeared to be
wiping his eyes: Bxlh had free access to
all parts of the theater. I was in front of
