Select Poetry.
If We knew the woe and heartache
Waiting for us down the read,
If our lips could taste the wormwood,
If our backs could feel the load,
Would we waste the day in wishicg
For a time that neer can be;
Weulti we want in such impatience
For our ships to come from sea?
Tf cce knew the baby fingers
Pressed a gra'nst the window pane
Would be cold and stiff to morrow—
Newer trouble us again—
Would the bright eyes of our darling
Catch the frown, upon our brow,
Would the print of rosy fingers
Vex us then as they du now ?
Ah ! these little ice-cold lagers,
How they point our memories back
To the hasty
. words and actions
Strewn along our backward track !
How these little bands remind us,
As in snowy grace they lie,
Not to scatter thorns—but roses—
Fur our reaping by and by.
Strange we never prne the music
Till the sweet voiced bird is flown;
Strange that we should alight the violets
Till the lovely dowers are gone;
Strange 'hat summer sides and sunshine
Never seem one half an fair
As when winter's snowy pinions .
Shake their white down in the air !
Gips from which the Seal of silence,
None but God can roll away,
Never blossomed in such beauty
As adorns the mouth to-day ;
And sweet memories that freight ourmemory
With their beautiful perfume
-Come to us in sweeter accents
'Through the portals of the tomb.
Let us gather np the sunbeams
Lying all around our path;
Let us keep tbo wheat and roses,
Casting out the thorns and chaff
Let us find our sweetest comfort
In the blessings of today,
With a patient hand removing
All the briars from oar way.

Soon after our arrival at Camp Grif
fin, Company F joined the regiment._
Probably there is no one place wlich
will he remembered by the men of our
regiment, as Camp Griffin ever must.—L
Here, on the twenty-fourth day of Octo
ber. we were regularly mustered into the
United States service as an crgenized
regiment; and, although we bad served
f• r two months previously, and our ser
vice was acknowledged. and its proper
payment allowed, our men were after
wards compelled to serve full three year!:
from the date of this muster. 'While all
must acknowledge that absolute wad de
finite rules must be prescribed in r n or
ganization so vast as our army, we can
not appreciate the necessity of an act of
flagrant injustice, insisted upon for the
sake of a rule ostensibly established to
prevent injustice, and secure the lawful
tights of all. Oa the thirty-first of Oc
tober we wore mustered for pay for the
first time. About this time we were oc
cupied, as were, probably, our friends at
home. in discussing the disaster of Ball's
bluff, which naturally created a profound
feeling iu our army.
On the twentieth of November occur
red the grand review of the Army at
Bailey's Cross Roads. Of this magnifi
cent pageant, of course we formed a part.
About seventy thousand troops were re
viewed. To those who, like us, had to
march a long way to the place, and re
main all day under arms, it was a day of
labor, and the writer of this veritable
history was too tired to observe any re
markable event, except the appearance of
the President at the review, and oar
weary march to our camp again. This
grand display did, however, produce a
Must favorable imilresmion on the Army,
as it gave us an approximate idea of our
slrength and n u.nbers.
The weather now begin to grow co'd
and our rents were nut eo conitoitoblesis
could he wished! California erocee
—which are like some railroad we used
to Lear a great deal of—under ground
..began to be improvised, and generally,
did tolerably welt. Their construction
it se follows: A hole is dug inside the
tent with a covered ditch leadingoutside
leader the cenvass to the surface, and
Winn this orifice, a chimney is erected,
The fire is built in the bole inside, end
the smoke finds its way out through the
ditch and chimney, i. e., if ibe wind be
not contrary.
.0n the fifth of December we moved our
atop, and provided in our new location
tritoothible winter quarters. Each tent
wis placed on a log foundation four feet
high. A common tent was provided for
eich Ave men of the Command, which,
with the addition of the logs, made very
mimfortable quarters A fire place was
hilt in each, with the chimney outside
the tent. Cooks were detailed in each
company. end kitchens built, in which
th 4 rations were prepared. Everything
wss conducted with the utmost method.
Giant strictness was observed in drills,
on the picket line, and in the perform
ance of guard duty. In all our expe
rience since, we have never been called
up t n to do more severe picket duty.tban
en we watched in front of Lowinsville,
though all the changes of a winter,
*ffbout ever the privileges of keeping
fires on the line. Yet. by this means, we
learned that strict attention to guard
duty which has donheess saved us frotn
many a mishap. Our picket line has
never been broken, or driven beyond
their reserve. But we had here, also,
many of the luxuries of civil life—let
ters and express boxes: sometimes visit
ors, greeted us-so often that we could not
doubt of the kindly remembrance we
were livid in at home. Songs, dances on
the clean swept, solid streets, passed the
winter evenings quickly away. Visitors
from other regiments, and our neighbors
of the Fifth Wisconsin and Six , h Maine,
furnished society. Sutlers furnished to
bacco, in all its forms, for the solace of
such as used the weed, and many other
luxuries and conveniences of camp life.
The markets of Washington were laid
under contribution to supply our wants;
yet, nevertheless. we were impatient ell
the winter for the ever expected march
ing orders.
On the sixth of December we marched
to Hunter's Mills, A point on the Dail
road near Vienna, being on a sort of re
contoisance, or scout. This was the day
on which the enemy bad a grand review,
and we could hear their music. We were
a long way from any support, and might
have got into trouble, but we' only saw
a few pickets of the enemy, and met no
opposition. After a long and toilsome
march, late at night, we arrived in camp.
On the eighteenth of December, our
neighbors of the Reserves, being on a
reconnoisance to Dranesville. met a Bri
aede of the , hemp, and had a. lively fight.
and a glorious victory. We formed as
soon as we heard their guns, and expect
ed to move out to their assistance, but it
appeared that they did not. need us.
ChrWmas and Ne* Year found us in
the eej , vment of camp comforts, which
were scarcely a reminder of these Boll
days at home. On &sr Year, however.-
we had a greased Wg to be caught, and
a greased pole to be climbed, but who
caught. the pig, or who climbed the pole,
this record /ath not.
In January, 1862. we received new
arms, aceoutrentents and shelter tents
Our arms were Austrian rifled muskets,
of the calibre of ,54. Previously, we
had our own smooth bore muskets. The
shelter tents were scarcely appreciated
at that time, for they seemed a very in
different shelter to our eyeti, and sug
gested a new phase of our future path
way to glory.
February passed almost monotonously
away. Games, drills and duty, filled up
it s daily record in regular succession.—
But the seventh of March.brought with
the long-expected roarohing orders.—
The news of the capture of Henry and
Done Non, and Burnsides' successes in
North Caro , ina, invired tI9, and we, were
anxious to prove our prowess in the field
of battle. So the order to move was a
welcome one, once in our history, at
After a march to the railroad near Vi
rune, and a tour of duty as guard for
the workmen engaged on it, we returned
to ramp, and made ready for our mart+
into Virginia. We left our comfortable
"A" tents on the old quarters, our extra
blankets in them; pleasant cots rtood
there, whose owners woild find no bet
ter bed than a rubber blanket on a pile
of brush, if so good; our cheerful fire
sides and comfort.givine little sheet-iron
stoves, grew cola' together, at our cruel
abandonment How we missed them ere
a week lied passed. So lonely and de
serted; regretting, yet. glad, for the sake
of novelty, we bid farewell to Camp Grif
fin, and shouldering arms and knapsacks,
commenced the trials of active campaign
irg. Bsfore'we reached our next camp,

The shelter tents seemed but a mockery
to our inexperience and we should then
have defined a shelter tent to be a tent
that was no aheiter. The roads were mud
dy, the nights were cold, and the Pros
pect seemed anything but cheering. But
we had appetite enough to appreciate a
soldier's rations, and luckily, enough
rations to satisfy the appetite. Wearied
limbs are not very fastidious as to their
rertiog place, and soon, under the de
spised little shelters. we have since
It a-ned to prefer above anything else as
a ealdier's habitation, we slept soundly
and welt, deeming ourselves fortunate
whose duty was not to be awake and on I
guard. We encamped at Flint Hill,
where, on the 13th of March,the Division
(Smith's) was reviewed by Gen. McClel
lan. On the fifteenth we commenced our
march back to Alexandria, through rain
and mud. The evacuation of Manasses
by the enemy, had worked a charge in
the plans of our leaders. We encamped
about four miles from Alexandria, in
what was termed Camp No 2, in the field,
and thereafter each additional camp was
known by number. Our camp near Al
exandria was cheerless in the extreme.—
The weather was wet, cold and dreary.
We sent teams to old Camp Griffin, and
received ourold tents and some blankets;
stoves, &c . which improved matters.
On the 24th of March we embarked for
Fort Monroe. The Forty-third N.Y.V01.,
of our Brigid:, having been placed on
the same boat with us. a considerable
fight was the result, and the Forty-third
were finally removed to another boat.--
For some reason, the same:good fellow
ship existing between the Forty-ninth,
Fifth Wisconsin and Sixth Maine, did
not extend to the Forty-third New York,
yet it would be difficult, perhaps, to ex
plain why. After a abort and pleasant
trip, we landed at Fort Monroe on the
25th of March, and marched to Hampton.
Here, in the Roads, lay the Monitor,
resting from her memorable conflict with
the Merimac. Here we added fish cod
oysters to our supplies, making quite an
important addition to our bill of fare.—
Here, too, we made our first aCqUaill
once with contrabands.
By tiled marches through the swamps
and woods, we moved forward until we
reached Warwick Crock, near Yorktown.
where, encountering the, enemy's works,
we went into camp, and commenced the
siege of Yorktown. This , was camp No.
9, in the field. In this march we bad
heavy fatigue duty. , building roads tbro'
the swamps, and short rations for the
reason that the roads were not built.—
Our camp was in a swamp, and the wa
ter was exceedingly bad. Here we re
ceived two months pay on the 29th of
April. Capt. J. M Green, commanding
Company "A," resigned his Commission,
and taking leave of the regiment, return
ed home. The causes which led to his
resignation were not well understood
outside of Head Quarters, aq, in cur re
giment, as every other, there is an in
ternal history which cannot be written.
Capt. Green enjoyed the favorable opin
ion of the majority of the Regiment,who
justified his course.

Oa the 16th of April, we were witness
es to the attempt made by the Second
Brigade'of our Division, or. more pro

gade, Vermont troops, to carry a portion
of the enemy's works lying across Wor
w'ck creek, and which effort was reptile

charged through the stream, which was
wide and swampy. in very gallant style,
but encountered a fire so galling that
they were unable to reach the enemy's
works, and lost heavily in their forced
retreat. As soon as darkness came on,
our Brigade moved within a few hun

field, and under cover of night.construct
ed earths , t.ks for the protection of our
guns, within easy range of the rebel lines.
Remaining until after daylight, with the
arms stacked, in full view of.the enemy,
and at right angles to their front, we
speedily found ourselves under a tolera
bly heavy fire of their artillery. Many
a half-finished breakfast was summarily
disposed of, and the arms being quickly
secured, we ware all soon under the
friendly cover of the woods. This was
the first time we had ever encountered
the fire of the enemy, an- the sensations,
though various as the different individ
uals were, in general, more novel than
We then advanced our picket lines,and
were introduced to the practice of sharp
shooting while on that duty. a system of
warfare which has destroyed many val
uable lives on both sides, without much
advancing the interests of either, and
which is sometimes barbarous as well as
useless. The regiment lost but very few
men in ibis manner, however, either
here or at' erwards.
The country in which we were opera
ting was a swampy wilderness, and ex
hibited but few evidences of any change
from its original condition. We were
compelled to build corduroy roads in
every direction, for the purpose of bring•
ing up supplies. and our camps were so
wet that water Could be secured by dig
ging two fret anywhere. The water was
had, but no better was within reach, by
any means in our power..
On theld of May we moved our camp
to what appeared to be a drier location,
and prepared to increase our comforts,
but - our rest here was a brief one. On
the morning of the 4th of May tke enemy
evacuated their works at Yorktown, and
tetreated towards Richmond. We im
mediately moved forward and commenced
a pursuit of their retreating force. On
entering their works we found plenty of
evidences of tbesevetity of ourArtillery
fire. We found, also, a considerable
number of percussion shells planted in
the ground, by paths and springs, ar
ranged so that they might easily be • ex
ploded. The discovery once made, how
ever, rendered them harmless, and their
