Clark has told us that is was found on a gravelly or rocky point on his place when he was picking corn last and has given permission for it to be bro ken open if We have so written Upon mature consideration we have concluded that Clark has chanced upon proof of the playing of the great national game in pre historic and this place was the location of the Sharpsburg grounds in the stone and
