At last the glad release came to us.
Sherman bad skirted on his "march
to tho sea." The rebels were perfect
ly ignorant of his intentions. They
feared die would come and recapture

they further reduced our rations, giv-

nothing more. Doyou say men could !
not live on that ? Well, we did live.
Perhaps hope kept us alive. We
knew as much of Sherman as the reb
els did, and it was plainly seen that the
days of the confederacy were drawing
near to a close an ignominious close,
disgraceful to all who were in it.
On the 2Gth of Nov. the first thous
and were ordered to be ready to move
on the morrow. They, went outside,
when the sick were taken on the cars
and the rest sent back. This looked
like exchnnge, but we had been de
ceived so many times, our faith was
weak, nnd -we thought we were only
to betaken out of Sherman's reach, to
another f rison. In a day or two the
Bick who had been taken away were
Bent back in. They said they had
started for Savannah, but found the
railroad had been cut by our men.
This was good news, for we thought
now- we would be released by ex
change, or else by recapture. At last
pa the 7tli of cc., the sick of five
"thousands" were taken out and 6ent
away. The ninth thousand, to which
I belonged, received orders to be ready
oh the next day j oh, how we dreamed
of home that uight. Uo w many hopes
and fears alternated in our hearts. . I
could hardly believe I was to be tak

horses loose without riders, and at the
soun 1 of the bugle they would form
themselves into line nnd go through
their parade. A', the battle of Corinth
I watched the artillery horses. They
came in on a swift rim, drawing a thirty-two
pounder ; and on the instant
the signal was given, they heeled, the
piece was unlimhc red in a moniwt, and
then at aHot her signal, they were away
again on a run. The gun was in good
position and did good execution. lint
the rebels flanked us, and wo were com
pelled to leave the gun and fall back
lighty rods. There wo reformed in
good order, and with fixed bayon-ts
charged back upon the rebels. ' They
were in disorder and fled. We took
the gun again; but knowing that we
could not long hold the ground, our
object was to bring off the gun. So
we opened right and left and the bugle
sounded for the horses. They came
dashing up again on tho run till they
reached the gun ; they wheeled, waited
a moment to bo hitched, and then
whirled it away in no lime and saved
it. I stood there, though the bullets
were whizzing around me, nnd looked
in perfect admiration at those horses.
Had they no riders to guide them?
Ye3, but they obeyed the bugle.
Their riders could not control them.

There is no abatement in the ex

morning. IJetii ng is going on freely
and both sides are coufilcnt as to the
result. The K.'publieaiis are still ve

that impeachment will fiiil to day. A
count this morning shows that ii' there

majority. The whole ease last night
seemed to rest ujion the vote of one
man, Mr. Willey, of West Virginia.
He has, however, expressed intention
to vote for conviction on three or four
article., and this insures one more
than is necessary for a two-third
vote, including the vote of Senator
The feeling against Senators Fesserf
den and Trumbull for. their treachetv
is very strong here. The Maine del
egation in Congress he'd a meeting
last nitrht and decided to wait upon
Fessenden this morning and demand
that he vote in accordance with the ex
pressed wishes of his State or resign
ids position. The Illinois members
of Congress went in a body this morn

the same demands upon him. What
response he gave has not transpired at

With the adjournment of the Senate

went up rapidly. It is fcelieved :that
the public sentiment will become so
strong by that time as. to insure the
success of impeachment. An inti

what inlhiences aro brought to bear
upon Senators Trumbull, Fessenden,

of his colleague Mr. Howard, was such
as to prevent his being present, and
he thereliiie moved that when the

On motion of Mr. Drake the
Senate then adjourned until Satur
day. The Missouri delegation waited up
on Mr. lleiidsrson to demand that he
vote for conviction on some ot thu ar
ticles or resign his position.
The Southern Union men, of whom
there are a large number in the city
have been the ino-t east down of nnv
class here. They have taken measures
tu-dav to organize for the purpose of
plating the situation of tho Union
men in the South as they deemed it
would be, should the 1'resident be ac
quitted, before the Senators. These
men all agree that there would be no
safety whatever in Southern delegates
to Chicago or members elect to Con-gre-s
returning to their homes. All
the letters received from the South
from Union men since the trial began
have exhibited great anxiety lest the
Senate should tail to convict.
The speech of Mr. .Morton in the

tention of all Senators upon him.
One of tho strongest points he made
was to read the resolution by which
the Senate reinstated Stanton, and
then call over slowly the names of
those who voted for it. From this he
reasoned that whoso names bo had

Senate, a lire-eating Southenief, in
debate, grossly n-'ailed a Free State
Senator. A3 no allusion was maoe to

when the Senate adjourned, ho said
openly if ever a southern .Senator made
such nn attaot on him or Ohio,
while he sat on that fioor, he would
brand him as a liar. This coining to
tho em's of tho southern men, a Sena
tor took occasion to pointedly speak,
a few days afterward, of Ohio and her
people ns negro thieves. Instantly
Mr. Wade sprang to his feet nnd pro
nounced the Senator a liar. The
southern Senators were astounded and
gathered around their champion, while j
the Northern men grouped
Wade. A fvler was put out from the
sotUhern side looking to retraction,
but Mr. M'ado retorted in his peculiar
stvle, and demanded an nnologv for
the insult offered him and the people
he represented. Tho matter thus closed'
and alight was looked upon as certain.

"Most certainly I do ; and will tell

not be asked for either retraction, explanation,-
or a fight."
Next day Mr. Wade came into the
Senate, and, proceeding to his seat, de
liberately drew from under his coat
two hrg pistols, and unlocking his
desk-, laid them inside. The Southern
men looked on in silence, while the
Norlhern members enjoyed the fire-eaters'

A "terrible outrage" lias justt
been badly spoiled. The democratic;
inpers in tho Northern States have for
sometime pa.st been circulating astory,
to the effect that one of Gen. Mowers
soldiers, a negro, recently outraged the.
General's daughter, a young lady of,
some sixteen years, while on duty at.
Ship Island, Louisiana. 1 hey further

A Sprightly writer expresses his,
opinion of old maids in tfm following,
manner: "I am inclined to think that,
many of the satirical aspersions cast,
upon old maids tell more to their cred-,
it than is generally imagined. .Is
woman remarkably neat in her person?
She will certainly bean old maid.' Is''
she particularly reserved toward tht
other sex? - She has all the squeamish-;
ness of ah old maid. Is she , frugal in.
her expenses, nnd exact in her domestic1
concerns? She is' cut out for an old
maid. And if she be bumans to the5
animals about her, nothing can savke
from the apellatidn of an old maid,, la,
short, I have always found that neat-,
ncss; modesty; economy, arid humanit!
are the never-failing cliaraeteristicrf of
that (terrible creature "old ttalcL? 11 -.
