BV H.C MAGOOX, BKFOKK THE WATTS-
VILLE LITEKAItY AM) IlllEIOKIC
SOCIETY, SATURDAY, JAN. 11.
The last week in June, 1SC3, found
the Army of the Potomac creeping
up through Virginia from Fred
ricksburg, and Irom our most excel
lent position on I lie Uippa!iannoc',
step by step, we were drawn by
Lee to Lccsburg on the upper Poto
mac, Biid here the fact dawned upon
us thai wc were flanked and that
the Rebels had crossed the Potomac
at Shcpherdstown and Williams
port. This was unpleasant news
for us. But crossing tho river as
soon as possible we pushed on
through Maryland and into the red
clay of Pennsylvania; pushingalong
through this cherry-pie state in
much mud, and judging from obser
vation, but few friends to the cause.
"Wc found ourselves on the eve of
July 2d within eight miles of Get
tysburg. The morning of the 3d
found us before daybreak rushing
up the turnpike but five miles from
the battle field, where already two
of our splendid corps had been de
feated by Hill. On we rush to stay
the advaure of Lee, Longstrcet,
Kwcll, A. P. llill and other old
generals, who were trying to carry
all before them, and make at least
one campaign on loyal soil. But
the loyal military say nay. And
well do you know, friends, that they
succeeded. lias it not been so?
Oh, yes, through many a bloody
war, ocr many a hard-lought battle
field, have they lully demonstrated
this fact, that loyalty will break
down all oppression. But let us on
to tho battle. "Forward, double
qmchy is me orucr, anu on we
rush, eight ranks deep, supply and
ammunition wagons mixed up with
battery and ambulance wagons. On,
on, with the sound of Howard's,
cannon in our trout. No man strag
gling, but every one determined to
do bis duty if it cost him his life;
and 1 hold, friends, that this indi
vidual determination to drive back
the cuemy caused victory to perch
upon our standards. About 12 m.
we leave the road, and file right,
into the field. A few, wounded,
Btraeglc by while we form by the
right of companies to the rear, into
column. Then comes the order
"load at will." Friends, had you
Been how resolutely the men of the
2d Division, 2d Corps jerked the
cartridges from their boxes, and bit
otl'thc ends with firm-set teeth, and
heard the ring of iron ramrods, a
they pounded down the buck and
ball cartridge, while no other sound
escaped them, you would have tho't
they meant "business," aud that
before the war is euded Lee will
recross the Potomac, and so it was
to be. But let us on to the front.
The cauuonade has stopped, but the
Bkirraishers are picking away at one
another us our division file into line,
aud look over the (soon to be) battle
field. Then we take up our position
behind the hill, there to await the
final charge, but the assault did not
take place that da'. Soon my com
pany, the 2d U. S. L. L., were or
dered out on the skirmish line, aud
out we went through our line ol
battle, with Hancock'. orders in
our minds to "give them h II, in
the red barn." Down we went,
through the beautiful clover, so soou
to be dyed with the blood of our
jcuow mau. we passed through
our skirmishers and up to the eight
rail feuce. The sun was only one
hour high, when we began the old
sharp shooter's game or dueling, at
about 500 yards. Sec that pull' ol
smoke from behind that apple tree;
"spat" comes the hall into the rail
just over my head. I change my
position three feet and crack at him.
My right-hand man is getiing in a
Bhot at a fellow behind a brick bake
oven. The man on my left is ex
changing shots with a Johncy from
behind the well-curb; and this is
the way it goes. Ofteu our Sharp's
rifle tells, and so does the Kentucky,
with its little ball that spats you
long before you hear its pistol-like
crack from over the way. But no
go ; we could not dislodge them ; so
down comes a German regiment,
"8ml as they chaige past us, they
were dropping like "Autumn
leaves," while we covered them the
best wc could. They take the barn
and out-building, but the enemy
turn loose a battery on them, and
rake them right and left. The brave
Germans hold their own, and their
no less brave surgeon, knowiug that
the boys wanted his attention, rides
down over the field at a break-neck
pace, his gray horse, a fine target for
the rebels, and soon he lall but a
few rods from the bam. Whether
the brave doctor was hurt 1 never
knew, for wo fell back to Cemetery
Ridge. Jfight coming on, 1 do not
know what became of the boys in
the barn, but think they fell "back
under cover of the darkness. Just
as 1 was about lying down for the
night, a fine, six-gun battery trots
up the hill and 1 hear the orders
"action to the front, limbers to the
rear," and in a moment Rickets'
battery is ready for to-morrow.
That glorious day for us, and ter
riblejday for many a southern home,
dawned bright and fair, no firing
from either side, but there we stood
glaring at oue another like gladia
tors of old. The stillness was in
tense; onr thoughts were of the
terrible struggle before us, the jester
was silent, the enemy were sad, the
brave were hopeful, the cowardly
felt bad. Tho men tattled to one
another as they do when there is
death in their midst. The officers
clustered together and counseled
and wondered if the single line of
battle could hold the bights. Oh,
yes, the rank aud file ever fully de
termined to hold the line aud then
and there to fight it out. No firing
until 1 p. si., when all of a sudden
there comes a rlchochet shot, down
from the village, skipping alonj; out
line of battle like a flit stone on the
water; and then, in a moment, ns
the signal is seen by the rebels,
comes the storm. From the woods
in our front, spring forth smoke and
fire alonz the whole line ; in a sec
ond we hear the roar of a thousand
Niagaras, an incessant roar; the sun
was darkened by the hmoke; the
hiss of the shot'atid shell and the
bursting of the same was terrible.
There were upwards of 125 guns
trained on the hights, and having
had two days to get the range gave
them the advantage. They were
mostly masked, so that when they
did expose them we could not get
the range, and soon much of our
artillery was use!cs; several bat
teries did well, and when the arlil
leryists were killed volunteers came
from the infantry. Orderly ser
geants would come running down
amid the bursting shell, shot, cau
nister and spherical case, saying
"for God's sake come up and help
man the guns, the cannoneers are all
killed." The men went. The fact
of our infantry being in front of the
batteries saved the line, as the artil
lery of the enemy was trained on
ours, so we lost but few out of the
battle line. A few were killed by
the lead buts of our shells as they
passed overour heads on their dead
ly mission. This terrible cannonade
was kept up for about an hour, then
it stopped as suddenly as it began,
aud all was still. But well wc knew
what would follow ; the smoke hung
heavy over the field, and the rebels
advanced under ifn cover. About
this time General Hancock rides
he lines, lo one regiment
"Stand firm, you will oon
see them." To another: "Don't
waste a shot and don't fire till they
get over the last fence." "Stand up
lo the racket, and give them h 11,"
is his order to the "Bloody" G9lh
N. Y. S. M. ; and this is the way he
went on talking to the many regi
ments of his command.
Ten or fifteen minutes pass, and
still wc do not see the gray lines. I
look back at Ricket's Battery ; this
wa a brass, G-pouud C-gun battery,
but in that terrible sixty-minute
storm of shot and shell, four guns
were dismounted, three limbers
smashed, and three battery or pow
der wagons blown up; hc remain
ing two guns were black as those of
Battery B., 1st Rhode Island, only
twelve rods from the first named
battery. Of this 12 -pound rifle
Parrott four gun only two were fit
for action, and they were out of
"swab water" and case shot. But
volunteers were bringing up the
same, and also red, white and blue
flinuel sacks containing two, three
or lour poinds of powder. One
6argcant aud four men were all that
was left, and they fought their guns
up to the taking of the same by the
rebels. While walking along the
ridge I hear a commotion, down
with the line of battle. One glance
is enough, and down the hill I run
to rejoin my command. As I hurry
along behind our line. I clance at
what the men were doing. Reading
their bibles? No. The last letters
from home? No. Looking at the
pictures of mother, wife or sweet
heart? Oh, no. But they were
laying their cartridges on the stone
wall belorc them in open boxes so
as to have them ready; their iron
ramrods leaned against tho wall,
and their muskets had on fresh caps;
the rear rank had laid down their
food behind them, and put their car
tridges into their haversacks to
loose no time in taking them from
boxes. My friends, those men
meant "business." I pass on to the
corn-crib where I had left Captain
Black, and find my company just
filing out to engage the enemy at
long range. Out we go, and up to
the first fence, where we rest our
rifle on the top rail, aud with the
sights raised up to the SOO-yard
notch, open the fight by fii iug on the
approaching colors. Many a color
guard falls from the effect of our
long-ranged, strong-shooting Sharp
rifles. On they come, grand sight,
three lines of battle, bayonets fixed,
colors flying, slow, sure, strong,
hopeful and brave. This, thought I,
is a clear case of "Greek meetin"
Greek." On they come; over the
first fence they climb, and form as
before. Our artillerists holding
their fire lor close range, our infant
ry silently awaiting the' shock.
With musket ready-cocked and pre
sented, we fall back over the clover,
(soft bed for the poor fellows whose
life's blood ran there!) through our
lines we straggle, by twos and by
threes, and up to the stone wall,
feeling that, although the 6ight be
fore us is grand, still in this case,
"distance lends enchantment to the
view." Just then our cannon open
ou the gray lines with canister at
about 700 rods. Look I Now they
arc coming! See the front rank
drop their musket with its glisten
ing bayonet into the left hand, and
move quick. 1 6tand by Captain
Black when thee remarks were
m ide. Now Ihey begin to yell, and
come up on the run. What terrible
carnage must follow ! As with one
accord our line hold their fire till
tho eneny are within 300 yard?.
Theu, what a discharge all along the
line, at the advancing hordes 1 Oh,
how terrible! Sec the brave fel
lows falling! They never return
the fire, but close up the broken
rauks. The secoud line takes the
place of the first, and on they come.
Our brave bovs arc again rcadv,
their muskets loaded with buck and
ball, and repel the second line not
five rods from the wall. Still, on
conies the third, and alter firing one
volley, turn and run. Just below
us on our left they broke through
our lines, captured Battery B. Sar
geaut, (of whom we spoke), jumped
upon his gun aud swinging his swab
stick around his head defied them
to turn his gun, and as nothing but
brave men were there, the Johneys
passed him by. Our reserve coming
up just theu, on the double quick,
and the rebels seeing "Yanks" on
the right of them, "Yanks'' on the
left of them, aud a division in front
coming down on the run, concluded
that "discretion was the better part
of valor," and many lay down, while
some went back much faster than
they came up. The broken lines
straggle back from our front, with
all hope gone ahead of them, and
with death's harvest behind.
The shrieks of the wounded, as
they rolled from side lo side, twist
ing their arms in agony, or walking
around In delirium, are hard to pic
ture, and cannot be described by
tongue or pen. The death-rate was
greater than in most battles, owing
to our men holding their fire, and
to their standing up while firing;
also, their using so much buck and
ball cartridge; the rapidity of the
volleys was owing to having these
cartridges handy. On the right aud
left, as far as I could see, the poor
fellows were rolling and twisting
in agony, and in our front for 500
yards or more, the dead lay thicker
than I ever saw bundles of grain in
a harvest field, and when they re
ceived a full discharge of buck and
ball, which is very destructive at
close range, that lay in winrows.
Shoulder to shoulder they fought,
side by side they fell ; no stone
maiks their renting place, and hut
three feet of dirt hides them from
A good employment for the mathe
matically inclined, during the long
wintcrevenings, will he to test their
accuracy. The multiplication or.
987,G5U21, by 45.givcs 4,444,444,445
Reversing the order of digits and
multiplying them by 51, we get a
result equally curious, 555,555,505.
If wc take 123,45G,7S9 as the multi
plicand, and, interchanging the fig
ures of 45, take 54 as the multiplier,
we obtain another remarkable pro
duct, G,0GG,GGG,G0G. Returning to
the multiplicand first used, 937,051,
321, and taking 51 as the multiplier
again, we get 53,333,333,331, all
threes except the first and last fig
ures, which read together 54, the
multiplier. Taking the same multi
plicand and using 27, the half of 54,
as the multiplier, wc get a product
of 2,GGG,GGG,GG7 all sixes except the
first and last figures, which read to
gether 27, the multiplier. Next in
terchanging tho figures in the num
ber 27, and using 72 as the multi
plier, with 9S7,G51,321 as the multi
plicand, wc obtain a product of 71,
111,111,112 all ones except the first
aud last figures, which read together
72, the multiplier.
Sleei No medicine can equal
sleep in good effects. It is the es
sential to good health. Sleep has
a good deal to do with the dispo
sition and temper. A sound sleeper
i seldom unduly disturbed by
trifles, while a wakeful, restless
person is apt to be irritable. A
great deal has been written about
the advantages of curtailing the
hours of repose and of sleeping
but little. We are inclined to think
there is room for doubt whether
the benefits closely limiting the
time given to rest have not been ex
aggerated. Active persons of ner
vous temperament can hardly got
too much sleep. We know verv
well that the saving of two or
three hours a day from slumber is
in one sense equivalent to a con
siderable prolongation of human
life, and we are no advocates of
indolence; but the fact still remains
that sleep may be ss abridged as to
leave the system incapable of as
much effective work in two hours
as might be performed in a better
condition in one.
Diptheriu Ims been almost an epi
demic at Mankota, Minnesota, and
an investigation by the mcriiral men
revealed the cause to be the uc of
bad water from the wells of that
town. "Wells in towns aud cities
have long ago been pronounced as
nothing but simply receptacles for
sink drain contaminations. A Des
Moincs physician has tried flic sul
phur cure for dipthcria, and finds it
an invaluable remedy." He applies
it, when possible, by blowing the
flour through a quill into the throat,
and when the glands are too much
swollen to admit of that process,
burns the sulphur in the room and
has the patient inhale the fumes.
A mild criticism does one good.
"What was the sermon about this
morning?" asked a mother of her
child. 'Well,' was the reply, "it
was about let me see it was
about twenty minutes too long;
lhat'6 all I remember."
Ah Inspired Orator.
On a certain occasion Prentiss visi
ted Boston aud addressed its citizens
in Fan mi el Hall. A gentleman
who heard him, then a venerable
judge, told lliis anecdote which il
lustrates the orator's power. Una
ble to procure a seat, he stood jam
med by the crowd. As Mr. Pren
tiss began to speak the gentleman
took ot.t Iris watch lo time him. As
he was replacing it in the fob some
thing in thn orator's manner and
words arrested his attention. He
found it impossible to take away
his eyes or ear?. lie forgot the
presence of the crowd, his own fa
tigue, the passage of the time, eve
rvthiugbut the speaker. Mr. Pren
tiss seemed fatigued. So intense
was the sympnthy of the venerable
mau with him that he found himself
breathing rapidly and painfully.
At last the orator, exclaiming,
"My powers fail !" and sank ex
haunted into a chair.
Not till then did the aged listener
discover that his hand was still
holding his watch at the opening ot
his pocket. He looked at it. He
had stood in that crowd listening
for three hours aud fifteen minutes.
Near him stood an aged minister
who, tremulous with excitement,
"Will any one doubt again that
God insphvs man?"
Said a railroad engineer to an Ir
ishman whose row had Ijccu lamed:
"but she didn't gel out of the way
whcnl rang the bell." "Faith, thin,"
said Pat, "ye didn'tshtop when she
rang her bell, naythur."
Bishop Haven now proposes that
the whole of North America be put
