An Old Poem and Its History.
A correspondent of the Inter Ocean
Doubtless many of oar readors have
read General W. S. Lytlo's line poem,
"Cloopatra," written the night before
the battle in which be was killed. Tho
Pittsburg Leader relates the romantic
circumstances under which it was w rit
ten. They wore told, by tha late
Colonol llealf to a gentleman. Ho
spoke of the night before tho battle at
which General Lytlo fell. The two
(Healf and Lylle) lay together in the
General's tent. They were both given
to writing poetry at such tiraos, and
each had an unfinished poem on hand,
nnd they read and criticised each oth
er's efforts humorously for some time,
when said Lytlo:
"llealf, I shall never live to finish
"Nonsense," said I, "you will live to
writo volumes of such stuff. ','
"A fooling has suddenly come over
me," continued the General solemnly,
which is moro startling than a pro
phocy, that I shall be killed in to-morrow's
fight. As I spoke to you I saw
the green hills of tho Ohio as if I stood
among them. They began to recede
from me in a weird way, and as they
disappeared tho conviction flashed
through mo like tho lightning's shock
that I would never seo thorn ngain."
I rallied him for his superstition, but
tho belief had become strangely im
pressed upon his mind, and he succeed
ed in so far thrilling mo with his own
unnatural fear, that I begged him to
finish his poom before ho slept, that
such line work might not bo lost to tho
In tho small hours tho General awak
ened run from a slumber into which I
had fallen, to read mo that beautiful

literature survives, beginning:

Ulilm tlio itIiiikoii Iifo-tilixKl fimt.
My eyes filled with tonrs as he read.
Ho said not a word as he concluded,
but placed tho mantisoript in his pocket
and lay down to sleep.
Beforo dawn came tho call to arms.
When I next saw poor Lytlo he was
cold in death among heaps of slain. I
thought of tho poem, aud searching
the pocket where I had seen him put
It, drew It forth, and it was forwarded
among other things to his friends.
