The woils, conducted un derground, was tedious an 1 difficult, but all labored with will. The candles which Lad been purchased and hoarded way, now did service. Without, them it wouid lave been til.n -st itnpos sible to finish tlie ta-.k. A code ot sig nals was invented to meet eve.y con tiuL'eiiey.

It wis necessary that this difficulty should be remedied ; hut how ? With out a view ot tbe ground just outside of the wall, no one could calculate how far, or in what direction to run a tunnel, so that when it was conducted to the surface all obstrlueions iiieht be avoid ed. 'In this emergency, General Mor gan ena:ed Scott iu conversation about the rt niarkabte escape of some convicts, hicl) had occured a year or two pre viously, and wh.ch Soott vas very fond of describing. These convicts had climbed by the bnlcouies. iu tront of the ratiges ot cells, to the ceiling, and had passed out through the ekylinht to the rof ul tho prison. Scott .declared his belief that there were no two other, men on the continent who could perform, the font of aseendihi by the bn loonies. . 'Why," says General Monran, -'Captain Paul. Ta) lor, small as hi id, can do it-" '1 hereupon a discussion ensued, end. ing by ircott'a giving Taylof preiuission to attempt it. Taylor, who, although very small, was as active ns u sqairrul, immediately commenced the ascent, and sprung from one to the other ot the bal conies', until he reached the top one. He was one ot the men who bad been selected to escape with General Morgan, and comprehended immediately the hit ter's object in having him attempt 'this feat. It would afJurd him a ch mee to L'latiee out of the widows ut the ground just beyond the wall. As be leisurely swutij; himsell down, be studied "thb position' carefully, and his observa tions enabled them to dire t the runnel, aright. Once)-- during the tunneling, while Captain llockerstiiith (another of "the projectors of the plan) was at work underground, i;eott culled fur hi in and seemed anxious to fin 1 him at once. General -Morgan's presence of miud pre. vented a discovery, or, at least, a strong suspicion of the plot from at once re sulting Irom Hoekerstuith's a Use nee. The General said to Scott, "lloeker smith is lyin dowu iu my cell ; he is sick," and he re quested Scott to examine uud give his opinion upon a memorial which he proposed forwarding to Wash ington. It was sotuothiug regal ding our removal to a military prison. Scott highly fl ittered by this tribute to his jud.uient) took the memorial, looked at it attentively lor some minutes, and ri turned it, saving, think it will do first rite." It did do In the acan. time. Hockersmiih had been signaled, and hud "come op," uud he m ide his appearance complaining of a aetious in disposition. While the work was goinjon, General Morgan and those who were to iscupe with bitn hahi'.ually slept with their lases covered and therp hands concealed. Tb'is was done to accustome the night guard to take their presence in the' cells' lor giunted, by the appearance -of the bulk upon the bed, without actually seeing them. This unard went the rounds tit : the expiration ol every two hours during the rijlit and he would place his liiu.tei ii c'ose to each cell door, iu order that the light should fill the eeli si'd show the occupant. General Morgan U8i'd t say that u peculi ir shod d-r'iig and creeping of the flesh wotiht nsui! lii'ii whetieve- this nmn approach ed. He would lioiiMitly cieej about with list slippers on. his ' teet,' rulid he moved them without the slightest noise. ; Ho used lo remind me of a sly, cruel, bloated, suspicinu, tiigntprowiin spiiler. When the tunneling uppionulied its eompletioti, all the other necessary pre purations were made. The prison-yard into which they would emerge from the untie, was surrounded by a wlM twen ty five toet high, and means for fCaling that had ti be provided. There was an inner wall running irom the comer of the ''Kust Hall" to a smaller build ing, in which some of t!ie lemale con vicls were imprisoned, but it was com paratively low, and they anticipated lit tie difficulty iu getting over it. 'Ihe coverlets of several beds were torn into strips, und tho strips were platted into a strong rope -nearly thirty teet in length. A strong iron rod. Used tor stirring the fiies in the stoves, was converted into a hook, and the rope was attached to it I. ope an I hook were takeu down into the air cham ber, wheie all the 'valuibht' were stor ed. General Morgan had manaied to get a suit of citizen's clothing, and the six men who were going to escape with him were similarly provided.- Th Warden had prohibited the introduction into the prison ot uniform clothing,, but occas ionally allowed plain suits to be reeeiv ed. The General had also gotten a curd of the schedule time ot tint little Mia mi llailroad.'at.d knew when the tram loft Columbus, and when it arrived at Cincinnati tor this lie paid (litem dol lars, all the uiuney used Iu effectiug bis scape. . Despite the strict search i.ustitiifcd when we first entered th. Fuiiientiry, several of the party had managed to m. crU tuooey to that it ws not jouud, ; l i.t i:, : -1k''-' V?

James Hockers.inith and Gostavus McGc. It is plain that, as each roan was locked in a separate cell, and eould not get ont of it by the door, without au interview with the night guard, it whs necessary to cut on opening into thir. chamber.' through the floor of each eel', from which each one of the: seven would escape. If ' these apertures -were cut from the top of the fl to'n of the cells, the' risk of detection : would he .prnnnr. tionitely increased : so an ttccurste ineaa hrment of tho --distance between the cells wore taken, ani wit.1t Hine's cell was a pomt of departure, it wns easy to calculate wherf to commence iiting from itt-r;7te'EfA,''ln order that the fl tirs of all these particular cells should be perforated A thin cYust. only of the cement was left, but to' all outward ap pearance the fl mr was as sound as vnr. .' By means of an arranirpment whinh had been perfected for 'obtaining nil ab solutely" necessary article'. aeh' one of the party about to eseane hd procured a stout, sharp knife--verv effective wea pons in rae of surprise and an attempt to stop the:r escape.

Two or threo dsvs 'e fore lx.ie eff-rt was made. General Mor gan received a letter from Bn Trihwo. man iu Kentiieky. wirnins hij not to attempt to make his escape, from which, she predicted, rreat evils to him would result. She alluded to -his kindness to the poor in Lexington.' and claimed that she was informed of the future in some supernatural manner. On the 2fith of November, General Morgan learned that there- had been a change of military commands at Coliim bus. Well knowing that this would be followed by au inspection of the prison und a discovery of the plot, lie determine ed that the effort should be made- that very niglit. His owu'ccll was in tho secoud range, from which it was Impos sible! to reach the air chamber and tun nel, but the cell of .'his brother, Colonel Ki-hard Morgan', had been prepared for him, and when Scott tapped, as usual, on the stove, as a signal for each man to retire to his cell, the exchange was ef. tected. ' There was a sufficient resctn b la nee between "thera to deceive a man who would not look closely, especially when they were seated -with their laces turned away from the door. . , ..At any ra'te7 Scott and the night guard were both deceived, and efforts were made byhe occupants ot the cells near to both ot those, where close in spcetum would have been dangerous, to attract to the the attention ot the guard when he weut the rounds. As it was especially necessary, on this occasion to know ccrta'uly wheu the night guard approached, small bits of coal had been spiiukled. jut before the hour for luck ing tip, ou tlie fliKjr of the first range; so tout (Head as lightly as he would) tbe slinking cur couid uot bc'p making a loud noise.
