In that number werosov- III suits pending in the Federal Courts vious to his dl-icbarge. were in no wise passed upon oy the Slate Court in these feigned cases.

From the reading of these ' books he embraced the doctrine of faith , uf Mr. Campbell's church, and was bap- ' tized by immersion by ono of their inin- ; inters about twelve months beforo bis ' discharge.

With thin object in view, Murrll gathered a few vol umes of bis choice hooks, bis scanty wardrobe and ton dollars given him by tho keeper of the prison. Ho changed bis name from John Andrews Murrell to John Andrews, loav of the Mur rell. Turning bis face from tho only home known to bim then on earth, and from associates and scenes of nearly ten years duration, w hose characters be knew to bo the vilest of the v i I , and with now impulses and conviction of right, be again entered the arena of life, witb the expectation, at best of living but a few year. With tboso feelings and objects in view, Murroll said be turned uis faco to the Cumber land mountain, taking the stago at Mashvillo fur .Sparta, at the fool of tlio mountain, and on reaching Sparta ho registered his namo at the old frame hotel on the north corner of the squ ,ro since burned down as John Andrews.

Murrell was a witness to thoir strife. Murrell desiring to avoid the high way or stage route from Sparta to Knoxvillo, turning his direction south of that line, and taking bis baggage on his back, look tbe road leading toward to mountain in tho direction of P.ke- ville, without any objective point in view, travelling all day and at night reached tho house of Jack Mitchell, liv ing about on tho centre of the mountain and twenty-two miles from Sparta. Mitchell was a kind hearted gentleman of respectable family, and a good livor for tho mountain. He had a email black-smith shop, in wliioli be did own work and small jobs for bis neighbor. Murrell' money being about exhausted and feeling that he could jet do some labor, thought lb s a very appropriate placo tor him to slop, Uniting hero also good water and salubrious climate, be introduced himself lo Mitchell as John Andrews, telling bim be was from Nashville and a skilled blacksmith by trade, out of money, and in bad health, seeking some qu et place where he could spend tho summer and recuperate his health, bill would do any work Mitchell might require in tho shop to pay for bis board. Mitchell was well pleased with Ibo man, and admiring bis frankness and easy address, very readi ly consented tor bim to become his truest aud laborer. Col. S. C. Norwood in Pikuville Reporter.
