Alone in the dreary, pitiless street, *.
With my torn old dress and bare cold feet,

Hungry and shivering, and nowhere, to go;
The night is coming on in *darkness Iliad
And the chill sleet coating , upon my bare.

Oh! why does the wind blow upon toe so
Is it because I am nobody's child?
Just ovcr the way there'ss; flood of light, _
And warmth and beautyand all things biight;
Beautiful children in robes so fair •
Are carolling songs in rapture there,
I wonder if they in their blissfui.glee
Would.pitty a poor little beggar like me,
Wandering alone in the merciless street,
Naked and shivering, and nothing to eat.
Oh ! what shall I do when the night cowl
down .
In its terrible blaokners over the town ?
Shall flay me down 'neath the angry sky,
On the cold kard pavement stone to die ?
When the beautiful children their prayers.
have said, . .
And mamma's have tucked them up snugly
in bed,
No dear motber ever upon me atoned
Why is it, I wonder? I'm nobody's child!
No father, no mother, no sister—not one
In all the wide world loves me; e'en the lit-
tle dogs •
When I wander too near them; 'tis wondrous
to see -

Gazing far up in the dark bine. sky,
Watching for hours some large, bright star,
I fancy the beautiful gates are ajar.
And a host of white robed nameless things
Como flattering o'er me on gilded wings;
A hand that is strangely soft and fair,
Caresses gently my tangled hair,
And a voice like'a carol of some wild bird—
The sweetest voice that was ever heard—
Calls me many a dear pet name,
'Till my heart and spirit are all aflame.
And tells me of inch unbounded love,
And bids me come to their home above;
They look at me with their soft, sweet blue.
From their starry home, in the azure skiez . ,
And it seems to me, out of the dreary night,
I am going up to that world of light;
And away from the hunger and storms so wild
I am sure 1 shall then be.. --somebody's child!

Battle of Lee's firing—The
'Evacuation of Yoiktown by the Enemy—
Our Morph, in Pursuit— Williamsburg—
Battle of Ray 5, 1862—March to the Chick•
We found in the deserted works of the
,nemy in front of Yorktown, 011 id.ova
pipes and logs, mounted as cannon in
the embrazures .of their eat works.—
Whether this was done to deceive our
balloon man, who used to try to see what
was going on over there, as was stated.
or fixed up by our rebellious brethren as
joke on leaving, is a matter of doubt;
but it is certain that we found mote
stovepipes and logs, than cannon, in the
works we entered.
As we approached the town of Wil
liamsburg, our Cavalry encountered their
rear-guard, posted in rifle-pits, and were
driven back some distance. liancock's
Brigade being in the advance, were dot
ed forward in line of battle. to endeavor
to dislodge them. Before the force was
ready to attack, night came oo; but as
the moon was shining, we were directed
to attack them by moonlight. Accord
ingly, we moved forward into a woods
which had been set on fire, and in which
we expected to find the enemy. A fence
ran along the edge of the woods, in
crossing which, our direction was so
much changed that the line were thrown
into some confusion, and as we reached
the point where the woods was on fire,
and where we expected to find the enemy.
some of the troops commenced firing,
which soon ran along the whole line
Clouds obscured the moon, and a scene
of confusion, excitement and uncertain
ty ensued, which might have been a se
rious matter, but was only ludicrous, as
it resulted. Finding- how difficult the
ground was, and that we bad mistaken
the position of the enemy, the attack was
suspended, and the men directed to lie
down in their places, where our line was
established. Soon afterwards, rain com
menced to fall.
On the morning of the sth of May we
rose early, the rain still continuing,
packed up our wet blankets as best we
could, collected what courage we were
endowed with, and prepared for a fight,
expecting to be led forward to attack the
enemy at once. However, we were mov
ed back to the edge of the woods. and
directed to cook and eat breakfast.
By this time firing opened farther to
the left, and we were informed that Hook
er's Division had come up by another

several miles, approached a branch of
Queens et eelt, w hich had beets drepened
by the enemy, by means of dams, to ob
struct our crossing. The depth of water
above, and the swamps below the breast
of the dam, made the narrow road on the
breast our only praeticableerossing,and .
just on.the blues at the end of this was
an.earthwork of the enemy. This we
found deserted, however, and were quick
ly in possesslon of it, and formed in line
on the other bank. Passing around the
bluff, we came upon a large, oped plain,
skirted by it woods on our right, and
commanded by a chain of redoubts and
pits, similar to-the one'vre had taken.—
The first of these was abandoned al.o
by the enemy, and they retreated from
the second at our approach." We then
moved firward in line to within about
eight hundred yards of the main works
of the - rebile,known among oar troops
as . fort'filagruder. They also held a
redoubt nearer our lino. • Fighting con
tinued in their front, and near our ex
treme left:Abut they seemed to pay but
little attention to us. Our batteries
commenced to throw shell at the fortond
the barracks near it, and we received a
few in reply.
ft continued to rain All the afternoon,
and we lay quietly awaiting the course
of events. The attention of the enemy
seemed to be mainly direeted towards
our left; at timrs the firing was heavy
and rapid. At shout five o'clock, the
enemy made an attempt to dislodge us
from our position. The "attack was sud
den, their force moving on our right
flank, under cover of the woods, and
rapidly driving in the Fifth Wisconsin
skirmishers, their line outnumbering
ours, deployed quickly along our front.
Coming on rapidly, in full view, we re
-tired -before - them as far as the second re
doubt we had taken, and awaited their
,'attack. Our batteries, being only- sup
plied with shell, soon became useless by
reason of the shortnese of the range,and
we then opened with musketry, begin
ning on the right, and extending 'along
the whole line. The enemy came on gal
lantly, cheering, until our fire threw
them into confusion, when they beat
a hasty retreat. A very few, only,
mime within about thirty yards of our
line, where most of them. fell. We then
moved forward a shortdistance, and cap
tured about a hundred prisoners, who
had thrown themselves on the ground to
escape our fire. About two hundred and
fifty of their number were left killed and
wounded on the field. The rain contin
ued. and the little pools of water, on the
old cornfield where the battle was fought,
were many of them seemingly turned in
to blood by the gore of our first battle
field's unfortunate victims. Our loss Was
remarkably small; there being but a few
men wounded in the rsgiment, and but
one of them Mortally. In the entire bri
gade, the loss was but about sixty men
killed and wounded. Hancock's brigade.
by this brilliant contest, decided the day
against the rebels. and the battle of Wil
liamsburg was over. The rain fell in
torrents, as though the clouds of heaven
were weeping'over the bloody scene: and
weary. and wet, and hungry, we lay
down on the field to rest and sleep, dis
turbed by the groans of wounded men,
for whom there was, as yet, no shelter.
Next morning the enemy was gone,and
we encamped on the field. Oeh'l Mo
Clellan visited us early in the morning,
and complimented the brigade, highly,
on their conduct in this matter. Our
wounded were carried to the York river
to be Pent north. The weather became
pleasant, and we were min rested from
our eon fl ict .
On the 9th of May, four days after the
battle, we resumed our march in pursuit
of the en - e•ny. marching to Burret Ordi
nary, a distance of thirteen miles, the
first day. All along the road were evi
dences of a hhaty retreat, broken wag
ons. dead horses, mired caissons, and a
road so ent'np by their trains, as to be
almost impassable. Nast day we re
mained in camp, and marched to a point
near New Kent C. W. on the 11th, where
we encamped again. On tke 14th of May
we moved to Cumberland lauding, on the
Pomunkey river. Here 'was organized
the Ary corps commanded by Maj. Gen.
W. B. Franklin, afterwards denominat
ed the Sixth Army corps, to which our
regiment was attached, and whose , for
tunes we shared during the rest of our
As soon as the corps was brought to
gether, we moved on to White House, on
the Pomunkey river, a place memorable
as the former home of Mrs. Washington,
at this lime owned by Colonel Lee, a eon
of the rebel chieftain, who has given eur
army so much trouble. At this point our .
Depot of Supplies was established, oars
and engines beitig brought up the river,
and put on the York River Railroad,
which crosses the Pomunkey at this paint.
Here were a large number of elaves,most
of whom left after our occupation, some
following the army, while others started
to Fort Monroe. We were no tiermitted
to destroy femme, here; but the great
and fine wheat fields were trodden down
by the troops, but whether for any par ,
titular reason, I °moot say. The fishe
ry'here supplied us with herring in
abundance. which greatly improved our
On the 22nd of May we commenced our
adt - ance on Richmond from t he new bise.
Encamping. after a short march, we spent
th - night, and reeutued our march early
is the morning. On our march to-day
we discovered a number of sweet pota
toe bins. which were pile dug in the
wound, and covered with rails planted
in the sides, and forming a steep roof
over ;hem, which was rendered tight by
straw and dirt. We eoen reduced their

We encamped that night near a Flouring
mill, and had a fine view of balloon,•
which , was on a reconnoisance in front of
us. The enemy attempted to shell it,
and finally did cause it to return to
Mother Earth. At this place we secured
a considerable quantity of flour and corn
meal, the mill being in the bands of a
very accommodating negro, and its pond
furnished us with fine bathe which could
be had for the taking. This camp was
the scene of Cold Harbor's after strug
gles. Next day we marched to the banks
of the•Chiclitth Milli', near New Bridge,
and encamped in an orchard, this being

A Funny Mistake.
What happened when• Hr. Johnson Left the
White House.
A Washington correspondent of The
Sun tells an amusing story of how late
oi the night of March 4, terrible ring
ing of the bell of the White Rouse was
heard. Grant was at his private resi
dence, and the servants in charge were
badly scared. Still the noise continued:
"Andy! ho, Andy! op'n the door!"
shouted the mysterious individual, work
ing away at the bell handless if he were
raking a stove. A short silence ensued
"Come. come, open the door, I tell ye!
hle'n Smythe's out here, an' its cold
enough to freese a spirit level I"
At this point one of the coachmen re
cognized the voice and sprang for the
door saying :
"Why it's Dave—old Uncle Dave !
Yere, open this door, some o' ye, d—d
quick !"
Teri seconds of suspense, and the key
was turned in the look, and the catch
was unsprung. A heavy foot strode over
the threshold, and two hundred pounds
of solid flesh and overcoat rolled in the
hall. The servants gathered about the
mass in amazement.
" TOM, ho, you, Tom ! S'tbe gasburn
in' in my room? 'S Andy gone to bed?
Confoun' ye, why didn'n' ye op'n th'
door? Didn'n' ye know I was freesin'?"
" Why, Uncle Dave," was the reply,
"didn't you know that to-day was Inaug
uration day, and that the President's left
for good, and that General Grant rune
the mill now ?"
Unehi David unsteadily gazed at Torn
for a few seconds, and a meaning smile
passed over his face. "No, you don't,"
said te; "what d'you take nie for?"--
Then he straightened himself up in an
effort at dignity, and continued : "Thom
as. be careful how you joke with a Unit
ed States Senator, and a son-in-law Iry
the President."
" Yes," answered Tom, " but you ain't
a Senator no more, and he ain't a Presi
dent any longer. Don't I tell ye that
Grant is a runnin' the mill?"
"rhat ?" roared the ex-Senator from
Tennessee, "and Andy's gone! an' Gid,
an' Bill, an' Aleck, an' Hughey, an'Orv..
an' all these lively fellows— all gone!—
Well, well, well!"
For one minute the speaker put his
band to his forehead, then blew a long
whistle, rolled out on the corridor, and
disappeared among the trees lining the
graveled walk to the White House.
It was ex Senator David T. Patterson.
of Tennessee, who, in a fit of absence of
mind, brought on by undue excitement
attending the inauguration had reeled to
the Executive Mansion, as in nights peat,
and demanded an entrance.
The Land Breezes.
Here is an ocean memory to which Mr.
Beecher lately treated the old folks of
his congregation
" When, after the weary voyage that I
first made across the ocean, sick and
loathsome, I arose one morning and went
upon the deck, holding on, crawling,
thinking that I was but a worm, I smelt
in the air some strange smell, and said
to the captain,"What is the odor ? ' •:It
is the land breeze from off Ireland." I
smelt the turf, 1 smelt the grass, I smelt
the leaves, and all my sickness &parted
from me; my eyes grew bright; my nau- .
sia was gone. The thought of the near
ness of the land came to me and cured
me better than medicine could cure me.
And when, afar off, I saw. the dim line of
land, joy came and gave me health, and
from that moment, I had neither sick
ness nor trouble; I was coming near to
the land.
"Oh ! is there not foryou,,and
for you, wearied mother, a land breeze
bloling a from Heaven, wafting to yOu
some of its odors, some of its sweetness?
Behold the garden of the Lord; it is not
far - away; 1 know frtim the air. Behold
the joy of home. Do I not bear children
shout ? The air is fall of music to our
silent thoughts. Oh, bow full of music
when our journey is almost done, and we
stand upon the bound and precinct of
that blessed land. Hold on to your faith.
Give not away to discouragement. Be
lieve more firmly. Take hold by prayer
and by faith. In a few hours visions of
God, and of all the realities of the etern
al world, shall be yours, and you shall
be saved with an everlasting salvation.
