THE 11ATTLI5 OP DRA1N8VILLE.
Oil December lOlh, 1801, tho Oth Regt.
P. R. V. 0., received orders to march
nt 0 A. M. of tho following day, in con
junction with tho balanco of tho Brl-
gado tho 3d :-Tho 1st Utiles, Captain
Easton's Battery, and two equations
of lho 1st Otvalry tho object being "to
drlvo back tho enemy's plckols," then
recsully advanc. dj and "secondly to
jirocuro a supply of forage." Tho order
was lecclved by tho Regiment with
great enthusiasm, and at lho hour np
pointed overy man and offlcor not on
his back with dUeaso, or reluctantly
obeying somo order of detail, was hi
tho r c. u Is? .
Lieut. Col. Penrose, owing to tho
sickness of Col. RIcketts, was In com
mnnd. Major Madlll was absent In
Wnshlrgton oil loavo, nnd not cogulz
ant nf o orders to march.
Tho jwglmcnt moved from Its parado
ground In tho most buoyant spirits, and
reaching tho Leesburg Plko found tho
other Regiments reporting. Tho col
umn was speedily formed aud put In
motion meeting with nothing to delay
its march until somo threo miles from
Dralnsville, at which point tho train
for forago diverged to tho right uudcr a
small guard, nud tho troops taking ad
vantago of tho delay refreshed them
solves from their haversacks. Tho
chances for meeting tho enemy wcro
being discussed with great doubt upon
tho minds of tho men, when nn order
was received to advanco towards
Dralnsville, with tho utmost dispatch
(in which direction a portion of tho
column had already gone), and a dog's
trot was at onco taken nnd kept up un
til tho Hanking companies of tho Reg
iments A. and K., which wero covering
tho left flank of tho column on the
Pike, camo suddenly upon a skirmish
lino of Confedorato troop3. Tho 1st
Rifles had a fow moments beforo com
menccd exchanging shots with this
same line, and were at tho tlmo deploy
ing for tho ptirposo of ascertaining
their strength and position. Tho two
Companies of tho Ctli wero immediately
ordered by Captain Ent, commanding
them, to change their pointso as to faco
tho enemy's line, but had not complet
ed tho movement when they wero or
dercd to join their Regiment on tho
Pike, which was dono with no other
loss than tho wounding of ono man of
Company K. through tho wrist. The
"Rifles" contented themselves with tho
establishment of their lino across tho
advanco of tho Confederates, nnd somo
considerable tiino was occupied In plac
ing tho two hostile columns in order of
battle. Beforo this had boon consum
mated by General Ord, tho enemy
"i"""' 'Iro from a 1iAltnrv.nf17nn.4nn
tho Centrovllle road, somo 40(7 yards
from its Intersection with tho Leesburg
Pike. Theso guns wero soon replied to
by threo guns from Eiston's Battery,
tho first dischargo from which elicited
cheers from tho cntlro Fodoralllncs ;
and almost immediately after tho Gth,
then on tho Piko with their right rest
ing at tt farm houso n short distanco
from tho intersection of tho Alexandria
road, wa3 ordered forward in lino.
After crossing a field and rising a gen-
tlo slope it entered a wood, into which
it advanced a short distanco, when tho
Oth Regiment was met slowly retiring,
having exchanged volleys with a lino
of troop3 in their front under such cir
cumstances as to mako it doubtful
whether thoy wero tho enemy or tho
1st Rifles. Tho two right companies of
tho Gth passed through tho left of tho
0th, and advanced to within a. short dis
tance of tho edge of tho wood, aud
near a fenco beforo firing a shot. Tho
enemy's lino was in tho edgo of another
wood across a narrow field, and so well
covered as to mako it doubtful as to
their strength. For soveral moments
tho lines In this position (tho 0th on tho
right and tho Rifles on tho left of tho
Gth) kept up a fire, neither party en
deavoring to advance. Finally, how
ever, Genoral Ord rodo up to tho right
of tho Gth and ordorcd It to chargo for
ward In tho direction of tho enemy's
battery. Tho word "forward" ran down
tho lines liko a flash, aud tho le 'iicnt
bounded tho fenco In front, crow tho
open ground nt a run, and In 11 111. ,iont
wero on tho ground previously held by
tho enemy. Tho "Rifles" on th i left
moved forward nt tho same tinv, but
tho Oth not taking up tho order, rem lin
ed back. Tho enemy's nodtiou was
well marked by their dead and wound
ed ; and their lino of retreat plainly
indicated by knapsacks, blankets nnd
muskets cast off In their husto to got
away. Their battery ceased tiring nt
tho tlmo their infantry gavo way, and
was withdrawn boforo tho lino of tho
Rifles and Oth reached tho point from
which it had been firing. Having com
polled tho infantry lo retreat In confu
slon, and finding tho battery nlso gone,
Col. Ivano, who was In temporary com
mnnd of theso two Reglmcnts.ordered a
halt which had no sooner been effected
than a lino of infantry was observed In
front of tho right Hank of tho Gth. Tho
woods at this point was qulto donso,
and tho lino observed being at tt halt
with guns at an order, a doubt at onco
nro30 as to who it was. Tho flag beln
finally observed to bo different from anv
carried by tho Reserve Regiments, a
flro was opened upon it by tho right of
mo regiments, which raptdly extended
to all tho Companies, nnd for a few
moments was replied to with vlcor bv

Tho dark and lengthened shadow of
four scoro years had fallon upon tho
scenes which dotted tho pathway of
christian duty lo Mrs. E. Thayer. More
favored than many others, sho was por
mitted to outlive tho allotted three
scoro years and ten, and to pass from
tho swelling bud, tho bursting blossom
tho blushing roso, tho full blown flower,
tho falling loaf, to tho maturosced that
drops and dlc3 to quicken for another
stnto of being. With her tho moro tho
outward man decayed, and tho eyo of
tho flesh grow dim, so much moro tho
inward man was strengthened, and
faith tho eyo of tho soul grew bright
or. Hers was a caso whero extremes

exercised that Innocent and implicit
faith which alono can fit any of 113 for
tho Kingdom of Heaven.
After long bodily suffering borno
with a christian patlenco and resigna
tion seldom equalled, her prayer for re
lief from tho burden of tho flesh was
answered. As tho waves of tho sea
wash in upon lho beach and slowly re
redo into tho depth again, so tho waves
of hor soul washed upon tho shores of
tho Jordan of Death, and slowly ebbo d
away into eternity nmid a peaco which
passeth human understanding. Married
in her 17th year, sho was for Gl years
tho partner of him whom sho leaves to
rejoico at her triumph over death. Sho
leavos also, a daughter, tho wlfo of tho
Hon. WillHm Elwoll, President Judgo
of this district; and n sou who rosides
In Oregon. Threo daughters and a son

was a devoted member of. tho Prot.
Episcopal Church and in its truest
senso, a faithful mother in Israel.
In Paradise, whoro tho souls of all
rc3t till tho trump of tho archangel
shall call them to judgment, she awaits
her final reward. "Blessed nro tho dead

For somo tlmo past tho people of
Madison nud Pino havo been annoyed
with something destroying their grain;
first their wheat and oats, and then
their con. Thoy supposed it to boa
largo deer. Its foot marks wero so largo
that tho four fingers of tho hand would
just cover It. "William Runyan thought
it destroyed eight or ton bushels of
wheat for him and for Mr. Hartman ns
much or more. All yet thought it a
deer, Then it commenced on tho corn,
and It ato such a largo amount, t'ntt
thosa knowing tio lialiils of 1 10 (Iter

tho way it crossed tho fciioe thoy said it

idoaof a'wild hog In theso parts, as no
such thing had ever been known here ;
but at last It was seen. On last Friday
tho 22d Inst., thero being snow on lho
ground, tho track was found, nnd John
Mordeii, Isaac Mordcn, "Washington
WclIIvor and William Falrmau, went
in pursuit. Thoy found him on tho
west sldo of Spruce creek, John Mordcn
flrst saw him, but.dId(not get a shot at
him. IIo took them across Spruco creek
on tho east sldo, being followed up ho
took it clrclo, and crossed Spruco creek
between Michael Bllhlmcsand William
Runyan's to the west sldo nnd then ns it
began to get dark, tho chaso was given
up for tho night. Next morning tho
samo parties started on tho track, and
found him lu what Is known as Stringer
Hollow. They stalled him out of that,
when he ran into a field aud Isaac Mor
don shot at him, wounding him in tho
ham. Then ho took n southerly direc
tion, crossing tho road leaoUng from
Jcrsoytown to Whlto Hall, neir tho

John Mordou got A. Iv, Smith to Jiltch
up In n buggy. They took tho road
leading to Waslilngtouvillo and got

IIo was killed ou tho land of P. Jones,
