Journal: On Sunday, about 10 o'clock, the Michigan cavalry found Morgan and his men at Mechanicsville, boat two miles from Salineville. They immediately made a charge and cut out orer 200 rebels and captured them Morgan was riding in a buggy, but he left it in the road and ran thro' a corn field, secured a horse, and joined his command, who skedaddled to the Nortli g fast as horses would carry them. In the meantime, Gen. Shacklrford, having heard the course Morgan would take, in all probability, made disposition of his forces in such a manner, at the cross roads, 4 miles South of New Lisbon, Columbiana county, that it was almost impossible for him to escape. A part ,of Shackleford's command were halting at a farm-house, feeding their horses, bout one foorth of a mile from the cross roads. I was lying down in a fence cor ner when I saw a courier come with Hffhininar sneed. A moment after Shack- leford appeared on the road ond at the top of his voice gave the command "to horse r uapt ien crieuoui in a sten torian voice, "3d Ohio to horse," and led the advance. Down the lane, pell-mell, the went, and I was unable to keep up, tty'horse being nearly worn out. When I came to the cross-road I saw the dug of truce coming down the road, and I halted until Col. Shackleford and Stuff Cime up and fell into the rear and fol lowed a short distance when we came to where the rebel General and his Staff was standing, in shade of aliirge apple tree. He there surrendered himself, offi cers and command unconditionally, to Qen. Shackleford. Ho had then 400 menover 600 in all, including the 200 taken in the forenoon. He stated that he could have escaped him, but that he preferred to share the fate of his faithful and brave men. lie shook hands with Colonel Wolford, of the Kentucky cavalry, very cordially, re marking that they had many a chase in Kentucky, but that be had got him at last. He subsequently delivered his pistols to Col. Worford. They were a. aplendid pair of silver-mounted, ivory handled navy revolvers. Morgan, not withstanding all that is said about him, jt an extraordinary man. He is fully six feet high, broad shoulders, and com pactly built has soft auborn hair, grey eyes, reddish whiskers, Sorid compac tion, has a pleasant smile when he talks, musical voice, and shows to advantage splendid set of teeth. He wore a grey roundabout and pantaloons, with a large brim black felt bat, morocco boots, with .hit pantaloons insida. It was said that he had previously surrendered to a mili tia Captain, and that they were to be paroled, but "I can't see it " It was also said that there was over $240,000 in greenbecks found upon these prison- , ; Among the officers I saw that were in 'at "the death" was Capt Dod, of this city, who is certainly a "brick" of a sol dier, He has no tinsel or show about him which characterizes a feather bed sol dier, but he goes iton the rough, and those who were unacquainted with bim took him to be a common soldierwould to God ,we had more like him. I also saw Dr. Cleason, fiurgeon of the 3d Ohio, on ,band. No better surgeon or faithful .Union man exists. Col. Lemert, of the 86lh 0.V. I., was also there with Jiis regiment. He Is pleasant man, and no donbt will make a good officer. I will mention one or two incidents which came under my observation, and then I have done for the present. In the skirmish at Washington, Guern sey county, a young rebel was shot thro' the abdomen and fell from bis horse into the corner of the fence. He was subse quently removed to the portico of the public house, to be examined by the res ident physicians. His intestines were protruding from the orifice made by the ballet was failing very fast and almost speechless. He .was a noble looking wnnth. The soft down on hit face and light moustache, indicated that he, had legs, between the lining and the cloth, " nttt yet arrived to full maturity. His lips , while others, handed over artioles. includ 'hair was dark and parted in front, re- ing greenbacks and Confederate Script, sealing a high intellectual forehead, wiSS These things will at the proper time be jnoft, dreamy bine eye, half closed 'return H088 from . wnom thcT er .

I left him sad at heart, and learn ed shortly after that he was dead. His name was unknown. Poor mother, she will no more greet her darling, but mis guided boy in this world; it is not likely that she will even learn of his death or where his ashes reposes. -Oh, what fond recollections cluster around tho memory at the mention of the ' simple Word "mother."' When misfortune, sickness or death overtakes the wayward child, it is the only name that will linger upon the lips until they are forever sealed iu silence. The ladies of the State of Ohio are great institutions. They can appreciate the hardships which a true soldier has to undergo. There was not a village through which we passed, with the ex ception of one, (Marietta,) but what the ladies had all manner of eatables spread on tables before their doors, and you were urged to eat at every step ; espe ciully was this the case at Caldwell, No ble county; Hairisville, Harrison county, Wellsviile, and other places too numer ous to mention. God bless them, and may their children and their children's children inherit their virtues and patri otism, and they live and die under the glorious Bag of our Union. MACK. Vr ho Captured Joh n Morgan Our correspondent, who is a reliable man and has no doubt good reason to believe what he writes, says, writing from New Lisbon. July 26th. 1863, that "John Morgan with all his men surren dered this afternoon to James Burbiek a Columbiana county Democratic militia man, about five miles south of this place. Our correspondent further says that 'Morgan had a light in the morning at Salineville, three miles south of where he surrendered, in which he lost some one hundred and Gfty men in killed wounded and prisoners. Ho then head ed for this place (New Lisbon), and a short distance beyond where he surren dered he took three of our scouts prison ers. among whom was Burbiek. About an hour before the surrender Judge Cur ry, who was in command of the militia forces in the vicinity of New Lisbon that went out to meet Morgan, met him tin dtraflagof truce, and agreed if Mor gun wonld not give him battle just then he might pass on to the Ohio riv er at Wellsviile unmolested, so fur as the Judge was concerned. Morgan then surrendered the balance of his men and horses, about tlueo hundred and fif ty of each, to Burbiek, in order, I un derstand, as he stated after the surren der, that the forces under Gen. Brooks, which were close in his rear, should not have the honor of capturing him. All agree that ho would have surrendered to Curry if he hud refused to agree not to fight him." It thus seems that tho great rebel rai der was captured, not by llosccran's cav airy, or by the cavalry or infantry of Buruside, or by Governor Tod's one hun dred thousand militia men culled out south of the National road, nor yet by General Brook's forces, nor yet again by Judge Curry, but by a single, unsophis ticated militia Captain, and a Democrat at that, who had no shoulder straps, was not embarrassed by red tape oranything of that sort; but withal was a man of sense and business habits. Hurrah for James Burbiek, the Dem ocratic militia Captain of old Columbi ana county, and the enpturer of Morgan who had evaded the skill of Rosecrans, Buruside and Brooks of the Federal Ar my, and Governor Morton of Indiana and Governor Tod of Oh'ol If you want work done you must get the Copperheads to do it. Hurrah for Burbiek, the cap turer of Morgan! Ou'o Statesman. O. S Journal, July Slst. John Morgan an Inmate or the Ohio Penitentiary. Yesterday afternoon, in accordance With orders of the War Department, John Morgan and twenty-eight of his command were placed in the Ohio Pen itentiary, where they are to bo subjected to close confinement until tho rebels see proper to release the officeers of the Streight and Grlerson expedition, now inmates of the LiijUy Prison at Rich mond. The prisoners arrived on the af ternoon train from Cincinnati, which stopped at the State avenueroesing, thus saving the trouble of marcf ngthetn from the depot. A detachment of the Provost Guards bad been detailed 'to keep the road from the track to the Pen itentiary clear of people a measure that was absolutely necessary, considering the large crowd that bad collected. It required but a few minutes for the guard under command of Lieut. Irwin to con duct the prisoners to the Penitentiary, where Gen. Mason turned them over to N. Me Hon, Esq., the Warden, who re ceived his charge with as much grace as the circumstances would allow. The examination of the prisoners, which followed, was a tedious process, but was not devoid of interest. It Was conducted with due regard for the feel ings of the prisoners and at the same time it was very minute. One fellow was compelled to band over a watch, he had concealed In , eno or bis pantaloon taken, unless tbey were a part of the steal-1 Ings iu their late raids. Morgan himself bod several hundred dollars in mony, and what ho considered as money, the great er part of which cousisted of greenbacks. As the examination of each prisoner was completed, be was marched to the wash house where he was required to give himself a scrubbing,' & from thence he was taken to his cell. Morgan, who was the first one to pass through this or- deal, aia so witn much indifference as he could command, which, however, was but little j for as he passed into the anteroom that leads to tho cells, his step was fur from tiling as firm as one would expect, notwithstanding bis effors to the contrary. The prisoners are to be governed by the rules of the prison, winch will prevent them from talking with each other. Their beards have. been shaven in nceordence with those rules, and they will doubtless find them selves otherwise inconvenienced by them. 'Ibey will receive tho same treatment as other prisoners receive, which is all they 08K, ana which is better thau has been done to many a Union soldier who has died in some Southern prison. They will be closely confined to their cells, though they will doubtless be allowed to take some exercise each day. We under stand that details from the Provost Guard will keep close watch over them. Bloody Work nt Charleston. A correspondent of the New York World, after giving an account of the attack of the Union iron-clads and land forces on Fort Wagner, in the harbor of Charleston, week before last, thus pic tures the charge of the Uuion forces and their repulse: CHARGE OF STRONG'S BRIGADE. Strong's brigade marched in column up past the old building on the righti of our batteries; then deployed and advanc ed iu line a short distance; then deploy ed again, and marched up the beach in close column, Putnam's brigade follow ing at supporting distance, and halting at a point where they had been ordered to stop. Fort Sumter saw the move ment, and pitched her shells over among the troops, but hurt noue of them. When Strong's troops, led by their gal lant General, had got two-thirds of the distance to tho fort, the cannonading ceased, to avoid injuring our own troops, and then the rebels in Fort Wagner came out in full strength. A thousand muskets flashed almost together, and poured a deadly fire into our troops. The guns were brought to bear on them, and grape and canister hailed down up on them. With a shout they advanced, at a word from the Generul, on a double quick, unfaiteringiy directed up into that terrible fire. Musketry rattled, Sumter's shells burst all around them, bullets whistled, canister hummed, grape plow ed along the ground, the fort was light ed up almost constantly with the (ire from howitzers, rifles and mtiskots not iu fitful flashes, but with steady, gleam ing sheets of flumo. They never stag gerednever wavered did not stop for the many who fell, or listen to the moans of the wounded. They reached the ditch and crossed it, on some planks, some rushing down iu and toiling up, some seeking a better entrance to the left, where the ditch, was, however, filled with water. As they were making the crossing, howitzers in the bastions kept np a raking fire, prostrating many bod ies, but not deterring tho mass. Over they went and clambered op the para pets. But the grape met them every where, sweeping the ditch, the curtains outside, the parapets above ; and the rebel infantry, seeing nil, but un?een themselves, peppered them with bullets, and gave no chance to respond effectu ally. Some retreated without further effort, the mnjority struggled on manful ly and charged down over the parapet, driving all before them. There was cer tain danger now in retreating, uncertain danger in staying or advancing. The rebels were driven from one corner over a traverse, and the 6th Connecticut col ors planted on the parapet. But from the opposite sides of the fort, from bo hind parapets and traverses and bas tions, the fire was kept up. Two guns commanded our position with their vol leys of grape. All attempts to reach them commenced with slaughter and end ed with retreBt. The 54th Massachu setts (colored) found a place lower down, and charged bravely over the parapet, their officers urging them to distinguish themselves. But the rebels made a dash at them, with all their bitter feeling against negro troops aroused, and neg lected all else for a moment in at'.ack ing the negroes They took some prig, oners, slaughtered many; bayonets clash ed and muskets rattled, and the Massa chusetts blacks got bewildered. Tbey barely saved one of their flags, and the staff of another, and then, with thinned ranks, retreated through the showers of iron bail, leaving their Colonel In the fort, many officers unaccounted for, and many black bodies, lifeless or disabled, along their track. All the other regi ments got, wholly or in part, on or over the parapets, but all were finally forced to flee. The contest on their part was a short but bloody one. Had these reg iments held on together but a momeut longer, they would have had a whole brigade to help them; but the difficul ties were greater than had been antici pated, and they conld not be longer held where victory seemed so impossible With .one or two regiments it was a rout; they went off helter-skelter, run ning wildly, anxious only for some shel ter from the rebel fire. Others marched off as orderly as if executing a simple manenver, parrying their arms and tak- ing away such of their wounded as were substitute or pay the commutation mon outside the ditch. ' ' ey before being examined. ADVANCE OF PUTNAM 8 BRIGADE. The Brigade of Col. H. S. Putnam, with his Seventh New Hampshire reg iment on the right, when the advance was ordered, moved to the rear of the old house behind our batteries, and de ployed into close column. When the nature of the ground would admit they again deployed into line, and iu this manner advanced to the works. Col. Putnam was ore of the first to reach the parapet, surrounded by bis brave New Hampshire Seventh boys, and inspiring bis whole brigade by bis fearless, gal lent conduct. Ia approaching the ditch the retreating men of tho first charge were met, and some portions of the bri gade were detained for a moment, but not permanently demoralized. Colonel 1'utnam sent Lieut. Col. Abbott, of the Seventh, and Maj. Henderson, his Ad jutant General, to intercept stragglers, rally those who halted and hurry for ward all troops. They did this uuder a very hot fire,, which was terrible a short distance from the fort as in it. The rear division of the 7th and a portion of the 100th New York were massed to gether, crossed the ditch and essayed to get a foothold inside from one point, while the 62d and 67th Ohio went to another. Every regiment behaved no bly, and all have a fearful roll of casual ties to attest the persistency ind energy of their effort to obtain and hold the foi t. One corner of the fort only was onrs, and that was swept by grape nud canis ter and exposed to musketry. The troops looked back, saw they were alone, and began to falter. General Strong had beeu up and cheered and rallied his quondam classmate and ever friend. Col. Putnam, and returned to try and bring up remlorcements. Col. Putnam im plored, entreated, commanded his troops to Hold on but a moment longer, and then another minute, and then a momeut again, but no help came. He had sent a messenger to ask tor reinforcements. He did not know that Genorals Strong and beymour uad both been carried from the field wounded. The messenger learn ed the fact and went to Gen. Gillmoro. The latter, anxious, but cool aud clear headed, told him the reserve, a fresh brigade, had been ordered forward as soon as it was known a foothold hud be n gained in the rebel work. Before this messenger left another arrived to say that Colonel Putnam was killed, and that our troops had retired from the fort entirely. That was the result, briefly told. Uen. Stevenson s brigade was be ing conducted by Col. Turner, of Gen Gillmore's staff, to reinforce Col. Put nam, when the news of his death and the retirement of his troops reached them in season to prevent the whole rebo! army nre taumg eUect on them. Sadly and disappointed they turned back, and tbe battle field was left to tho enemy, and our dead and wounded. The rebel fire ceased, the ambulances met the stretchers at the edge of danger, and tho groans of tbe wounded, the chirps of the crickets, and the beating of the surf, were soon all the sounds we could hear, for the fire on both sides had ceased The rebels, too, had dead to bury and wounded to care for, and peaco was to reign for a night, at least. Our fresh troops fell back to the in-tre-ichments in good order, occupying all our old positions ; and the shattered regiments rallied around their torn, burn ed and smoked standards, to go into camp and call the names of the absent forever. Personal Appearence of General Meade. "Agate," the Army correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette with the Army of tbe Potomac, thus describes General Meade : In a plain little wall tent, just like the rest, pen in baud, seated on u camp stool aud bending over a map, is the new ' General Commanding" for the Army of the Potomac. Tall, slender, not ungain ly but certainly not handsome or grace ful, thin-fuced wilh grizzled beard and mustache, a broad and high but retreat ing forehead, from each corner of which the slightly curled hair recedes, as if giving preiuotion to balduess appar ently between forty-five and fifty years of age altogether a man who impress es you rather as a thoughtful student than as a dashing soldier so General Meade looks in his tent. "I tell you, I think a great deal of that Quo fellow, Meade," I chanced to hear the President say a few days after Chancellorsville. Hero was the result of that good opinion. The Monroe Doctrine. As this celebrated position, taken by an American Executive nearly forty years ago, has been of late wantonly in suited and practically nullified, during the Administration of a Republican President, we give It herewith that our readers may sec how foreign nations in jure us with impnnity ; "The political system of the Allied Powers," that is, the monarchial or ab solutist system, "is essentially different from that of America. . This difference proceeds from that which exists In their respective Governments. ' We owe it, therefore, to candor, and to the amicable relations existing between tho United States and these Powers to declare that we should consider any at tempt on their part to extend their sys tem, to any portion of this hemisphere as dangerous to our peace and iaety." Hoh. Caleb Gushing has given an opinion that the payment of $300 ex empts a man for three years, and that a person cau not be reanired to furbish : How Morgan Got Threo Hun di ed Horses. John Morgan is said to be as good at playing a joke sometimes as he is at horse stealing, and the following inci dent related by the Louisville Demo crat shows that on a recent occasion he did a good deal of both at the same time. Tbe story is rich, whether true or not: During his celebrated raid through Indiana, John Morgan, with about three hundred and fifty guerrillas, took occasion to pay a visit to a little town hard by, while the main body were 'mnrchiug on.' Dashing suddenly Into the little 'burg' he found about three hundred Home Guards, each having a good horse tied to the fence the men standing about in groups, awaiting or ders from their aged captain, who looked as if he had seen the shady side of sixty years. Tho 'Hoosier boy's looked at the men with astonishment, while the captain went up to one of tho party, aud allied: 'Whose company is this?' 'Wolford's covolry,' said the reb. 'What! Kentucky boys! We're glad to see yon, boys. Whar's Walford?' 'There he sits,' said,' a ragged, rough reb, pointing to Morgan, who was sitting sideways upon bis horse. lhe Captain walked up to Wallord (as he and all thought) and sainted him. 'Captain, how are you?' 'Bully! How are you? What are you going to do with these men and horses?' Morgan looked about. 'Well, you see that d d horse- thieving John Morgan is in this part of the country with a parcel of cut-throats and thieves, and between yon and I, if he comes op this way, Captain, we'll give him the best wo've got in the shop.' 'He's hard to catch, we've been after bim for fourteen days and can't see him at all,' said Morgan, gocd humored 'If our horses would stand fire we'd be all right.' 'Won't they stand? 'No, Captain Walfnrd, 'spose while you're rcstin' you and your company put your saddles on oar horses and go thro a little evolution or two, by way of a lesson to our boys? I'am told you're a boss on the drill, and the only man Mor gan is afraid of. .Walford (as it were) alighted and or dered 'his boys' to dismount, as be want ed to show the Hoosier boys how to give Morgan a warm reception, should he chance to pay tbem a visit. This delighted the Hoosier boys, so they went to work and assisted the men to tie their old, nearly worn-out bones to tha fences and place their saddles pa the backs of their fresh horses, which was soon done, and the men wcrein their saddles, drawn up in lino and ready for the word. The boys were highly elated at the idea of having their 'pet horses' trained for them by Walford and bis men, and more so to think that they would stand fire ever af terwards. Tbe old Captain advanced, and walk' ing up to Walford (as he thought) said: 'Captain are you all right now?' Wal ford rode up one side of the column and down the other, when be moved to the front, took of his hat, passe dund said: 'Now Captain, I am ready; if you and your gallant men wish to witness an ev- olution which you perhaps have never seen, and all was as silent as a maiden's sigh. 'Are yon ready?' All right, Walford,' shouted the Cap. tain. 'Forward!' shouted Morgan, as the whole column rushed through the crowd with huzzas of every one present some leading a horse or two as they went, leaving their frail tenements of horse flesh hitched to the fences, to be provided for the citizens. Itsoon become whispered by about that it was John Morgan and his gang, and there is not a man in the town who will 'owu up' that he was gull ed out of a horse. The company dis banded that night, though the captain holds the horses as prisoners of war and watts an exchauge. Horrible Situation. The cashier of ono of the Broadway banka, N. Y., a few evenings ago, had occasion to enter the double-doored vault, just previous to the porter's time ot going his rounds and turning the Keys. 1 be doors of the vanlt were clos ed, and the suffocating tenant, knowing it was the man's custom to immediately leave tbe building, at once set up a cry of terror sounding, without, like the stifled tones of a ventriloquist which, however,, would have been unavailing, had not a clerk been accidentally de tained at bis desk. A faint call "Let me out," was heard; and finally traced to the vault. The doors were opened, and the horror striken cashier, nearly helpless, pale and weak from fear, exer tion and want of air, tottered forth. The five minutes incarceration, and the ter rible thought that he was to die a lin gering death, so changed him that the clerk could hardly recognize him. He now shudders at the sight of the vault, and has not recovered from the effects of his fright. . He says the five minutes seemed days to him. It reminds one of Hoffman's story of "The man in the Re servoir," or one of Poe's terrible tales "The Cask of Amontillado,"for instance. Dr. George W. Beers, of San Fran cisco, Cal., pressed by poverty, arranged with bis wife and daughter to die to gether. Tbey took poison, and he bast- ened. their death by blows with an iron bar, then severed an artery In bis wrist and bled to death.

Cattle Killing In Buenos A res, A correspondent of the Tribuno writes from Buenos Ayres : This is not an agricultural country but pastural. The animals raised are in numbers, respectively, as the order iu which I name tbem sheep, cattle, hors es. The exports are chiefly the various parts of these animals as hides, horns, hoofs, hair, tallow, bones, beef, &c. There is economy in preserving every part except the beef. This is taken off in sheets, aud dried and salted and dried again, until all relationship to beef can be very safely denied, and is jerked beef ready for exportation to Brazil or to Cuba. Tbe number of animals slaughtered in this vicinity is almost incredible. The following are the statistics on that sub ject from Jan. 1863, till May 15th, 1863: In Uruguay, 519,600; in Buenos Ayres, 205,900; in Entre Rios, 190,000; in Rio Grande, 800,000. Total for so mnch of 1863, 1,215,500. The quantity kill ed in the corresponding period of 1862, was 1,002,200 animals. That such a mess of beef should be disguised and dis colored and sold for a song as jerked beef is in Brazil and Cuba, is a loss to the world. The National Committee at Montevideo are exerting themselves to find new forms in which to export beef, but hitherto without success. In this q-estion Montevideo is much interested, for in that country there are extensive tracts over which cattle graze in their native wildoess. So large are the farms, varying from 9 square miles to 140, that the animalB are reared without taming them. Mammoth Grape Tine. One of the largest grape vines witliiu the range of our observotion is a Cataw ba, cultivated by Mr. Hedges, superin tendent of the Woodlawn Cemetery near Xenia. The via is now in its ninth year, and has been trained, without trim ming or clipping in any way, on tbe aides and under tbe eaves of his residence. It has borne fruit for five years the present ono being its fifth crop ; and Mr. Hedges is carefully noting the a nconnt of fruit produced. .In 1861 he picked five bushels last year four and a half and this year, he thinks the yield will not fall short of seven bush els. The bunches are very large and hang from all possible positions on tbe vine. Mr. H. is trying the experiment of letting the vine grow freely without pruning and thus far the quality of the frnit is unimpaired. He thinks that the shelter furnished by the walls and pro- jecting eaves of tbe house has added much to the safety and success of his vine. Ohio Farmer. .

Now, life is. very ancer- tnin, and we may not live a iin?l rW longer; bat if we divide the four score years of an old man's life into twelve parts, like the dial of a clock, it will allow almost seven years for every figure. When a boy 1s seven years, old then it is one o'clock of hia life; when he arrives at fourteen years it will be two o'clock; and when at twenty.one years, it will be three o'clock, should it piease (iod thus to spare bis life. In this manner, we may always know the time of our life, and looking at the clock may perhaps remind us of it. At what honr you and I shall die, is only know to aim 10 wnom an things are known. I know not what hour it may be with the reader, but I know very well what time it is with myself; and that if I mean to do anything in this world which hith- erto I have neglected, it is high time to see about it. Look about you, I earn estly entreat you, and now and then ask. yourself, reader, what o'clock it is with, you? The sum of Christianity or morality- is, gir and forgive, bear and forbear. Virtoe commands good men's respect and all man's honor, and banishes every kind of deformity from the person in whom, it resides. Though it is a truth very little receiv ed, that virtue is its own reward, it is surely an undeniable one that vice is its own punishment. The principal point of wisdom is to- know how to value things just as they deserve. There is nothing in the world: worth being a knave for. If a man would but consult the gold en rule, of dealing aa he would be dealt by, those very passions which incite him to wrong others, would instruct him to right them. Daily Labor. God never allowed any man to do nothing. How miserablo is the condition of those men who spend theirtimeasifit were given them, and not lent, as if hours were waste creatures tnd such as never should be accounted for as if God would take this for a good bill of reckoning: Item, spent upon pleasure, forty years ! These men shall once find that no blood can privilege idleness, and that nothing is more precious to God than that which they desire to cast away time. Bishop Hall.

A Melancholy Scene- A few days ago a lady living in this county, a few miles from the city, bro't a parcel to one of the Express officers to forward to her husband in the army. It contained some articles that she had prepared with her own hands. Her two little children were with her. The clerk looked at the name and addressed, and turned away to hide his emotion. That very morning one of those ominous box es which crowd our trains frem the South, had arrived with the name npon it which was npon the parcel. The remains of the husband and father were at that mo ment at the depot. Tha shook to the poor lady was terrible.
