We crossed the Rapidan May 4th, and
encamped on the south bank of the river,
in a pleasant camp. All was serene and
peaceful, as yet; not even a sign of rebels
near us. The hills, all about us, were
illuminated ; by .the camp fr 4 s of our
troops, and:the scene, on that last quiet
night, before the bloody trip through the
Wilderness, was picturesque and roman
Nest day we moved forward for sever
al miles, when, forming our line of bat
tle, we moveVnto the woods, and, with
great difficulty, made our Way towards
the enemy. The - WilderneSs, here, was
reality; and was full of briers that .
made any progress through it, not only
slow, butrather annoying. About noon,
as our line was working (heir way thro'
the thickets, we. were suddenly saluted
by a volley of bullets, coming from an
invisible enemy, in the bush, in front.—
We immediately went into them, and
succeeded in capturing about thirty of
them, and drove the rest back. We now
found the enemy in force, and some fight
ing in the bushes was kept up all after-
We had lost about thirty men in this
first day's fighting, and the prospect for
a severe experience seemed good. We
lay down in line, and slept well as tired
men will, until about daylight, when we
were aroused by firing. Slowly, but
surely. it extended, first right,then left,
until our whole line seemed to be engag
ed. Soon we began to exchange leaden
compliments with our enemy,and to look
for some indication of our expected or
der to move upon their works.
We built barricades Of brush, logs and
•all sorts of rubbish, but made no move.
At night., however,the rebels charged the
right of our line, held by our 3d Divis
ion. 6th Corps, and completely turned
it, driving our men in the greatest con
fusion right down in our rear, and near
ly capturing Gen Sedgwick at his Head
Quarters in our immediate vicinity.
We were left with the rebels firing up
on us from both front and rear,and with
our troops in inextricable confusion a".l
around. But our Second Division,chang
ing front, came to our aid promply, and
though,in the darkness and thickets,we,
no doubt, killed some of our own fleeing
troops, yet we drove off the rebels, and
then quietly got out of that place. We
were losing men all that time, and felt
matters were not in satisfactory shape.
We moved back to the rear towards
morning and halted long enough to cook
and eat our breakfast,and get some rest,
finding some works there built by our
troops during the night.
Here we remained until near evening,
knowing only that we had gained no
real advantage of the enemy, and yet
that we had not been_ seriously hurt.—
In the evening we moved to near the old
Chancellorsville battlefield, still having
an occasional spurt of skirmishing with
the rebels at some point. We lost only
one or two men wounded, however, this
day, and went into camp in good time.
Our new men had behaved well, in this,
their first campaign, and the 49th felt
very confident of a glorious victory very
soon, for we thought we were just the
boys who could go through a wilderness,
even if it was full of briers, and rifle•
pits, and rebels.
On the Bth of May, we marched on,
with some fighting, towards Spottsylva
nia C. H., and, on nearing it, in the
evening, were hurried forward to help
some sth corps troops who were in a
fight, and were being crowded by the
enemy. We did not get very much of a
fight out of them, as they did not seem
much inclined to press our lines after
they found us prepared to receive them
in effective style.
BY BECKIH HARRIS
We fired at, each other a :little, made a
great deal of noise, frightened a Wiscon
sin Lieutenant so badly that he got a
discharge very suddenly for his conduct
on the occasion, and then lay down in
line without supper and slept until morn
On May 9th 'we Moved off toward the
left. It was a beautiful morning, and
there was an unusual quiet. Now and
then a shot: by some • skirmisher or picket
was heard, but scarcely enough to at
tract attention. '
Suddenly there was a commotion, arid
an ambulance: started to the skirmish
line in a great hurry. Then we saw some
men coming up with a stretcher, and on
it the well-knotn military cloak of Gen.
Sedgwick, covering some : , one • who lay
like one. dead. In a moment the news
spread from rank to rank. It is uncle
John. He was shot while looking - out a
position for the artillery along the picket
Gen. Sedgwick was dead. He had.
been long our commander, and none was
more beloved, Known as uncle John all
through the corps, he was loved for his
real Kindness, respeCted for his soldier
ly ability, and feared for his stern re
quirements of the proper performance of
our duties. An eccentric old bachelor,
he had few men in his command whose
peculiarities were so marked, and yet so
innocent of giving pain - to others. He
never objected to a horse•race or a cock
fight, but would not.allow a ball in the
corps. He lay down in his rubberblan
ket,- setting his flag on a fence stake, or
sticking at his feet,.and seldom.required
a tent_when in adtive campaigning,while
brigade and division commanders were
getting quarters fitted up in good style
by their servants.and bangers-on.
We mourned John Seclgwick in reality.
and with reason.
We have built him a monument at
West Point, from a fund contributed by
the officers of the old 6th corps, and yet.
as long as the cross we love is remem
bered, we shall find in the history of
this modest, faithful soldier of the Un
ion, as it will appear in the record of our
great Et ru ggle, a more lasting monument
than the beautiful marble we have in
scribed with his name. Out army bad
no better corps commander. We felt his
loss. All, the 6th corps was, we owed to
him; for he made us soldiers; and taught
us how to win the glory we did win on
the battle-fields of 1864.

JUST THE SAME.—Some years ago ( so
the story 'goes); a farmer living not a
thousand miles from New York, gave one
of his sons some money, and told him to
go out. West and remain two years; at
the end of which time, if he would return
to a specified place, one of . his brothers
would meet him. The young man went,
and reurned and met his brother accord
ing to appointment, although no commu
nication had taken place between them
during the time. While going homeward
together, the wanderer, after relating
some of his adventbres, inquired wheth
er anything had happened since he had
"No, not. a single thing," replied the
other, "everything is just the same as
when you left, except that. the old crow
~ Indeed," said the wanderer, "and is
the old crow dead ? What killed him ?"
"Why he ate too much meat when the
matched horses died."
"Good gracious ! are the matched horses
dead ? What killed them ?''
"Well you see when the house and barn
was burned, they overdid themselves in
Good gracious ! are tho house and barn
burned down? How did it happen ?"
"Well, you see. when daddy died,they,
were carrying lights about, and were
"Good graciouS ! and is daddy dead ?"
"What was the matter with him ?"
"Well, you see, when Sal ran away
and got married against daddy's wishes,
he just pined away and died."
"Good gracious! so nothing has hap
pened since I've been away ?"
,'No, everything is just the same."
A NEWLY inducted policeman spotted
a richly dressed lady in a dry goods store
on suspicion of shop-lifting. "You are
my prisoner," he said, laying his hand
on her shoulder. What do you mean?"
dcmanked the insulted lady. 'What's
that you've got on your back—stolen
goods?" Heaven! I never was so insul

NEVER intentionally wound the feel
ings of anybody. The good opinion of
the world is the very best kind you can
have, and the more the better. The man
or woman who says he or she doesn't
care a pin what the world thinks or says
gives utterance to what they know isab
solutely false. We do care, and it is
well we do ; and those are gravely mis
taken who say they do not.
A FARMER who lives on a certain hill
called "Hard Scrabble," not a hundred
miles from this place says, last summer,
owing to the drouth, and poor land to
gether. the grass was so short that he
had to lather it before he could mow it.
."OH where do you get the red for
you cheeks V' said a pale wan youngla-
Ely to a bright laughing minx;
"Where the roses get their's, in the
air and sunlight," was the reply.
Sabi3oribe for•the RzptraracArr
We are requested to republish the fol
lowing article, which was written by
the gifted N. P. RoAgers, and published
bathe Herald of freedom, at Concord, New
Hampshire. Mr. R. was a law'yer, and
belonged :to one of the best families of
New England. He had few equals in his
day, for sharp, piquant writing. A more
'decided hit at that meanest of all the
manifestation of American society, could
not well be found. We quote :
“Lit me give it an off hand blow here.—
Hateful, heartless Aristocracy. I detest
it above all things. I was subject to its

you, when you are with him; He makes
use of you. He does not recognize you as

first in indulgence, first in scorn of hu

reform. It is when it is eccentric and ill
balanced, that it strays in there. It will
keep its eccentricity—but not part from
its haughtiness. One day or other it will
break out. Kink Richard could carouse
and fight by the side , of Robin Hood
and the outlaws of Sherwood forest—but
every now and then,. outlawed freedom
would show its claws and teeth. Richard
was an odd King—and went among the
brave outlaws, and, fought on foot among
.them. But when outlaws took the liberty
to' speak to him,on even terms of fellow

You must beware of it. / You can't live
with it. It regards every thing allowed
you,as an allowance—a favor. You have
no rights. If you receive anything, you
must do homage for it.
Now I like refinement—and dislike
coarseness and grossness. I am disgust
ed at dirtiness of spirit. But I. abominate
uppishness. I like washed hands—but not
these "dainty fingers." Cleanliness and
elegance, to any extent, and the refined

It comes by birth. It comes by money.
It comes of idleness; even. It is engen

however., breeds it the most grossly and
offensively—a generation or to of homage

the nose of the third or fourth genera

You can tell its nose and upper lips, as
far as you can see them. And there is a

I never could help seeing equal humani-'

he had too much sense. Too mech real

WHAT HE WANTED.—"FeIIow citizens,"
said a stump orator, "we have. the best
government in the world, and the best
country. No people on the face of the
globe enjoys more privileges then we do.
We have the liberty of the press without
onorous;despotism. • What,fellow citizens,
is more desirable than this ? Can you
want anything more, my countrymen ?',
"yes, sir-eel" shouted a listener, "I
want a suck out of that flask sticking out
of your coat pocket behind."
Modesty promotes worth, but conceals
it, just as leaves aid the growth of fruit
and hide it from view.
