Remembrance orCJeilyHbure. 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 along he lines, lo one regiment he savs "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 view. A "tlsilheiiiutienlCiirlosIfy. 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, exclaimed : "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 under one government ;'"and we hereby nominate him a candidate of one to do U. Chicayo Journal.
