Dath of Gov. Tod. In the death of ex
Governor Tod, Which occurred at his resi
dence, very'suddenly, on Friday morning, 12th,
Ohio loses a worthy and valued, citizen. Ilis
identity with the interests of the State and na
tion, have been such as to cause his memory
to. be cherished and revered. Although a
Democrat before the war, he threw hinnelf un
reservedly into the breach with his wealth, in:
flaence .nd personal effort, His was no half
hearted motive or policy, tainted by sympathy
with Coppcrheadism, counseling tenderness
toward the rebels, or secretly plotting a con
tinuance of strife and blood-shed by,impeding
the wheels of Government: . The . memory of
Gov. Tod will stand ontin bold relief as an
lioirest man and true patriot.: Such Democrats
are worthy of respect His public usefulness
was only interrupted by death. Ilis age was
about 60 years. He was one of the presiden
tial electors, at large, and the. vacancy thus
occasioned, will be tilled as the law directs, by
a vote of the other electors. - ;
' The State of Mississippi, alone among tlie
States which have roted on their respective
Constitutions ' framed under the Reconstruc
tion acts of Congress, gave a majority of votes
against ratifying the instrument But it is re
ported tlist a recount of the votes has just been
made by the proper authority, and that it now
appears that a niajority of the legal votes cast
were tn ftiwr of ratify ingr so the State will
soon be freed from Military rule and restored
to self-government and to representation in
Congress. In fact we presume that the defeat
of Seymour and Blair has rendered it no long
er desirable, in the eyes of her former aristocra
cy, that she should remain out of the Union:
so. we judge that she is coming in by. general
acquiescence if not by the affirmative and
hearty action of those who so stoutly dissented
whea the vote was taken. Virginia and Texas
are all that remain sullen, and their new Con
stitutions are completed and ready to be votti

, , Thb Meteoric Shower. The Superinten
dent of the Naval Observatory reports that
during the evening of the 13th inst there were
no greater number cf meteors to be 6cen than
are usually - observed on ' clear nighty until
about 11 p. ji., when there appeared to bean
increase in numbers and . brilliancy, though
not sufficient to indicate the- beginning of a
shower: - At midnight the humber had consid
erably increased,' and Hie" prevalence of trains
was generally noted. 'J At 85 ; minutes past
midnight 'the observing" party begatt to
count the meteors; and to plot the tracks of
the principal ones. .r At one hour and tuirty
five minutes in the- morning, three hundred
meteors had been counted, the most of them
quite brilliant, and nearly all of them leaving
green, blue, or red trains. Thus far the dis
play had not been confined to any . portion of
the sky, but most of them were in tlie northern
or Southern heavens. Many of the trains were
visible several minutes. One lasted ten min
utes, and traces of one were 6een thirty min
utes after tfi appearance of the meteor. Dur
ing one hour and forty-three minutes four hun
dred had been counted. The observations
.were continued until aftei & a. m., at which
time there had been counted fie: thousand and
severity-eight - During the w.hele display
there wcrcmansy meteors seen in the west, but
from four o'clock to five the numbers were
about equal in the cast and west The time of
maximum frequency "was about five hours
when they fell at about the rate of 2,500 per
hour.' The' trains were unu9uaHy, brilliant
presenting the various colors of green, orange.
blue., and red, and remained visible for.an un
usual time.. Frequently sis many as five could
be seen at -once, . presenting an appearance
when nearly dissipated, of light cirrus clouds.
:The shower commenced several hours before
it was expected, as it was predicted last year
it would be seen in 18C8 in the Pacific Ocean

I'TpE StarvationIof Union Prisoners.
Hon, Leonard Myers, in a speech in Philadel
phia, made the following statement :
jThe vilest thing yet is the attempt to fasten
on.General Grant the responsibility for the
starvation of our prisoners, and to do it they
call on the rebel General Ould, who even inti
mates that their prisoners were treated no bet
ter. Now I want your attention to a state
that has never before been made public. When
Jeff Thompson,, the rebel,, was exchanged, ha
passed through Andersonville he had the heart
ojuaa.hhad been - treated)?- with )
great kindnees, and he waited on Jefferson Da-
vis to' beg bettor conduct toward our prisoners. '
Davis replied :.. "We can kill them that way
much quicker than in battte He is the stern
statesman 'who was fed on'fried.. oysters; has
been cheered in England by our "free trade"
friends and stands, about as much chance of
Imaging as John H. Surratt Let modern De
mocracy call up Jeff Thompson as their next
witness. - - - ":
The Skinner Murder, at Independent
Cuyahoga county, some months since, is no
doubt fresh in the minds of many ' of our read
ers. The perpetrators have since been arrest
ed and are on trial at Cleveland. One of them,
McKinna, has turned Suite's evidence and
makes y full revelation of the daring and hor
rible affair. His testimony is annexed : , t,
I remember the killing of David Skinner and
know the parties ; they were myself, Lew Da
vis, Hutch Butterfield, Tom Mulhall and Wil
liam Folliot ' The first knowledge I had of
the contemplated robbery of Mr. Skinner, was
on Saturday, tho 13th of September, in tlie af
ternoon ; I came over to the canal locks, went
into Cratty's saloon; Folliot was there playing
'seven-p" with another man ; when it was
finished he got up and called me out; while he
was shaking, I JooKea up uie jow-pam ana
saw Tarn Mulhall coming; .when Tom came
up' he asked me if I would go with him to the
West Side arid I said "no;" I asked him what
he was going for. and he said, "to get a black
smith shop;" he and Folliott started off togeth
er and told me to wait at Cratty's saloon until
they came back I waited aliout three quarters
of tin hour; Mulhall and Folliott did not come
back and I started to go home ; I met Mulhall
coming out of Clement's saloon ; he asked me
if I. could get a pistol and I said yes, and he
told me to hurry up and meet him at the Ca
ual bridge ; I went and got the pistol and re
turned to Cratty's saloon ; saw Mulhall near
by ; I went op to him and he asked me if I had
got the pistol; I said yes, and sliowcd it to
liim ; he took it and put it 11 his coat pocket;
he and I started up Canal street, andaf'Dutch
Jake's saloon he gave me the pistol again ; we
then crossed tke street and be told me to sit
down on the railing- while he went to see
where the rest of the fellows were; . he passed
on to the Corner of Michigan, and Seneca
streets;! saw Davis Butterfield, Pblliott and
Mulhall together on that corner ; this was be
tween three and four o'clock in the afternoon;
I crossed the Seneca street bridge and went
across the DsH; I saw Butter&ekl and Folliott
sitting together at the foundry; I was ahead
of them and they hurried and overtook me ;
they walked past me and -1 followed on be
hind, soon after we reached the one mile post
Butterfield complained that the iron bar gall
ed his leg; I did.not then know what the iron
bar was for;, Butterfield said "I'll bet no man
knows" what this bar is lor except the man
who uses it-' we went down to theriver But
terfield pulled out a couple of newspapers; he
said tUy were d--d abolition sheets and fit
for nothing else; lie took the jimmy out from
the fc'g-of s paatatoaas (l wrapped it up;
Folliot put it on his shoulder and . we started
again along the canal; Butterfield then com
menced snowing th wedges ; he had two or
three-; he said "I guess the wedges Lew Da
vis is making will be larger than these, we
want some two or three si" larger than
these ;" Bnttw&'M afeo- showed a large dirk
knife and said "there is something better
than a pistol or a revolver, either;" Butter
field and. F.uiliott got to talking about safes
and Hutch, said "I have busted a good many
safes ; we-went on till we came within about
half a mile of eight mile lock where we stop1
ped to hit boat - pass ; we then, went on &
short distance when Davis and Wullbal came
up and joined us about eight o'clock ; I ask
ed Mull'hall what delayed them and ' he
said ."I had to wait unlill Davis could
finish the wedges, and for him tu get a
revolver and, : some : : cartridges; we : sat
down fer the boat to. pass the lock, and
Folliott said to Davis, "Lew, let's g rsp and
get the sledge ;" they said they would wait for
us at the bridge; Folliott and I went to the
shop ; we tried to get in by the window and
men U open uie doors wim me jimmy ; r 01
liott got mad andjammed the "jimmy" through
the window ; he got in, lit a mutch, found fike
sledge and threw it out to me ; I put it under
my coat and we started back ; we went on
rlown to the bridge and found Davis, Butter
field and MulhaU; Butterfield and Mulhall
lifted the sledge and said it was too light; we
got within three or four hundred yards of the
housP, when Folliott said, "This is the house,
get ready to go iu, boys ;" he commenced ty
in" a hankderchief around his ice and But
terfield did tlie same, resting Ui'v5,my against
his leg ; Davis and Mulhall did the same ; .Mul
hall said to me, "Bob, have yon got a handker
chief ? if you have, tie it around your face as
we ace. doing ;" I found one in my pocket and
put it around my face; Folliott said, "Now,
boys, if you can t get that money without hurt
ing anybody,. come away without it ;" we went
into the yard and stopped in front of the house;
light was shining thnoiigh the front windows
and we looked and saw uie people sitting in
the back part of the house pL saw two men
sitting iaithfeewe-lnoked through, the win
dow near the door; Folliott said, "ifow we've
got a good chance as they're all together, let's
hurry up;" Folliott, Mulhall and I started
around the left hand side of the house ; Dauis
came a few steps and went back to Bslterfiekl;
Mulhall asked. Butterfield if he was net going
with them, and he saidv."No,.ril stay hene and
see that no one comes out;" Mulhall. Folliott
and 1 went on, and Mulhall said, "Where the
n 11 is uaviH 1 and lie went back and brought
him around; Mulhall set the sledge down by
the back door; Mulhall, Folliott, Davis and I
were all together at the back door, and Folli
ott said, "Are you all ready ?" Mulhall said
"yes"-". Folliott went in first, Mulhall second,
Davis third and I fourth ; -Folliott "took out
his revolver and presenting ii at the: men in
the room he said, "All keep your , seats ;" Fol
lio'.t went across, the ropm after a woman who
commenced screaniinsr and I stormed into his
place; Davis then' stood at my right hand and
Mulhall at my left; Davis was nearest tlie bed
qn which Mr. Skinner was lying; ; one of the
women rushed, up in , tront ot us and Davis
pointed his revolver at her; the, woman was
holdiiig her hands above her head and Mr.
Skinner raised up on the bed to see' what was

a rail fence, who should come out of the
front - door but Butterfield and Mullhall;
Butterfield had hold of MullhalT by
the arm ; we started down . the; hill
Folliett - first, I second, Davis tliirdr aai

well put that shooting on Folliott as on me ?
he is away; he said, "Bob, if you swear
against me I araeoing to kill- you ?" I said,
"You have told that to all the boys in the
prison r"-and he said, "Yes, and I mean it too ;
you can put it onto Folliott, and it won't con

JThe following curious story is told by the
Erie Dispatch, of last Wednesday : "On Sat
urday, the 7th inst, Mr. Geo. Warren, of Mead
ville, to all appearances breathed his last ' His
body was placed in a coffin and in every way
prepared for burial, and the remains were to
have been sent to this city for interment ' On
Monday a hearse and carriage went to the de
Jfct,' but the object of their search was not
there, and they reeived word that the funeral
party had missed the train. The hearse went
to the depot' again yesterday, instead of the
corpse there came a dispatch, stating that Mr.
Warren showed signs of life. A dispatch re
ceived at a later hour stated that he had been
removed from his coffin and was sitting up in
bed. What must be the feelings of his friends
at having restored to them one who was
mourned as dead beyond a possibility of a
doubt? He lay in the death-like trance for
about forty-eight hours before exhibiting signs
of animation, and it was almost a providential
circumstance that the interment was set for a
place some distance from where the supposed
death occurrrd. The. disease that prostrated
him, was typhoid fever, and the contemplated
interment at Erie was probably the means of
averting that horror of horrors snoonsciously
burying a living human being." : '
