Letter from the Battle-Field
On the banks of .Po river, Ten miles)
south of Frederick city, Mayl7, 1864 f
'.DEAR UNCLE. is With the great
est pleaSuro I seat myself to-day to
give you a detailed account of my ad
ventures since I loft Huntingdon.—
When :I left Yon it - Was my intention
to visit. Uncle James at Northumber
land. When I arrived at Newport I
feitild that I could not get across to
the . 4,usquehanna until the next day
I arrived at Drummonds on Sunday p
m and found I was too late to get to
Northumberland, so staid there un
til Monday, when I left for Washing
toiii arrived at the regiment on the
ultnind on the 28th was on duty.
On the .?.,9th .. we left our camp (which
was near Bristoo) and marched to'Cat
lett; the sun was very hot, and we
were'•all , verY much _fatigued. Next
morning wo started before day and
crossed the _Rappahannock about noon
on a pontoon bridge. We arrived near
Culmper in the evening and went;in
to camp, where we lay until the MM..-
ning of the 4th inst_ when the. whole
army started on the present terrible '
campaign.. ' I -
We crossed the Rapidan about three
P M and Marched to near the Wilder
ness Inn, where we camped for the
night. Next morning (May sth) we
marched to Lacey's farm, where we
formed a line of battle. I never saw
men in better spirits than they Were
that Morning; men who were confirm
ed stragglers heretofore appeared as
jovial as if they were going to a ball.
There was, some skirmishing by the
buektails in the forenoon, but it was
light. About 1P Ai the skirmishers
notifiedys• that' the - enemy weread
vanCing.''N6-ehanged our line of hat.-
tie to the right, and prepared for a
charge. I was given command of fifty
men ofmy oWn company, and ordered
to deploy thern:at intervals of ten pa
ces and skirmish on the left of the bri
gade, which I did, ordering my men to
advance. They soon became eng aged.
I then closed the intervals - to five pa
ces and connected with the left of the
battalion. Col 11.1eCtindless then or
dered a charge of the 7th, 11th, and 2d
Reserves, which was obeyed with a
will. I kept on the flank with my
skirmishers till . the regiments charged
clear through the rebel line, when the
enemy throw a liro of-battle throlvx
the right of My skirmishers, and
around the left of the regiments. The
11th and 2d seeing the predicament
they were in charge to the year, and,
breaking the - surrounding party, got
the 7th fought long and well, but
could not got out. I tried to rally on
the battalion, but it was no use. About
11 of my men were lost before I got
out of the Wilderness, which piece of
strategy I accomplished about 4 P DI
after some of the gayest manmuvering
ever heard of in this army.
I'wont into camp in rear of the rifle
pits, and reported to Col McCandless
for duty:',With ;44, men. Ile ordered
rue to take my place in line as a regi
ment and to sign all reports us com
manding officer of the 7th regiment.—
That night we rested, and if ever men
needed it we did.
May 6th: We arose early in the mor
ning and moved in lino of battle about
three hundred yards in advance of the
rifle pits, the 2d brigade driving the
enemy befero them. We lay under
fire, i o, a skirmish fire, about three
hours, when our brigade (Ist) with
drew to . the pits. The enemy then
advanced on the 3d brigade, but were
repulsed. In that affair we suffered
the loss.ofTel Dare of the t.b. and Col
Ayres of the 10th—both gallant offi
cers'and:patriets. During the night
we lay in rifle pits with the exception
of about two hours that - we - were'o . n '
.double quick reinforcing
Wick's line.
May 7th. We were manceuvering
around all day, from ono point to ;an
other, as a kind of flying division of
infantry, and during the evening were
under a very heavy artillery fire. Gen
Hancock fighting all day on the left
That night we started on the plank
road in rear of Hanedek's men, and
after one of the hardest marches On
record arrived about six miles south of
Chancellors Ville where,ivefound Sher
idan's cavalry had had an engagement
and held'
.the .enenay Our
division was thrown immediately on
the rebel pits, when two thirds of the
men were in the rear, and of course
we were repulsed with some loss. I
lost 1 man of my little party, wound
ed badly . . We charged again and
were again repulsed. I lost two more
men. Then the order came to rest
until the main army came up, and rest
we did. In the evening we charged
again and drove the enemy, so that
we got a good position and hold it.—
On the oth we threw up a rifle pit and
lay behind it all day. Sharpshooters
firing all day.
May 10th. In the morning we were
saluted by a couple of rebel shells be
ing thrown over our heads. We lay
quiet till about the middle of the after
noon when' we charged and were re
pulsed, charged again and held our
ground. I' lost four more of my littlo
party, wounded; and had the horrors
myself.:' We laid in the woods among
the dead and !dying all night.
Next morning (11th) I thanked the
Almighty for preserving mo so far, for
I do think Providence had something
to do with my getting safely through.
We laid' all day on the 11th in a rifle
pit which we built ourselves. A rebel
sharpshooter got on a tree and done
some sad work in our line till ono of
the Bucks got range of him, and his
shooting was over. We laid in

pit under fire till night when we Mov
ed farther to the left, and laid down in
the mud and rain to sleep.
May 12th. In the morning when I
awoke there was a terrible musketry
fire going on. I jumped up and at one
glance I saw the enemy (thinking to
surprise us) had charged the pits, but
the boys were not as sound asleep as
I was and gave them several volleys
that sent them reeling back to their
own works, perfectly satisfied that
Yanks could fight as well in rifle pits
as they could. tile laid under a pretty
heavy .fire all the rest of that day;
changed our position in the evening
and slept in a mud hole all night.
Next morning (13th) the Johnny
Reba opened on us pretty sharply.—
Warren ran out the Berdan sharp
shooters and they soon made the robs
haul in their horns. They next open
ed on us with artillery and made the
pines jingle for a short time around
our heads but hurt no person. During
the night we started on a march and
it rained hard and the mud was knee
deep. We marched till eight in the
morning when we halted near here;
I reported ten men with myself for du
ty in the 7th Regt. Plt C. For ten
days we had been under fire during
the day, and either under fire or march
ing at night. I had lost eight gallant
boys wounded out of the low I brought
out of the first engagement, and as for
myself I was completely "played out."
Since then We have laid pretty quiet
and I have recruited my little band up
to forty seven men, musicians and all.
We lost heavily in general officers
and some of the best ones at that.—
Tho whole army mourn the loss of the
gallant Sedgwick. Col McCandless,
commanding our brigade, was wound
ed; he was a good man.
Col Sam Jackson of the 11th is com
manding our brigade at present; ho is
an excellent man. Better men than
Generals Warren Meade, Grant, Han
cook and Burnside do not livo in our
day. The two latter have done some
of the best work on record in this cam
paign. I (1.3 not know who Sedgwick's
successor will be; some. say: Wright,
and others say Crittenden ; either are
good men, and will win laurels in com
mand of the Sixth Corps.
Eleven. days I was commander of
the regiment. Yesterday there was a
Captain (King) who holne recruit.
ing, came and relieved mo of my com
mand, and I tell you I was pleased to
see him come, for I am really tired of
being Colonel, Quarter Master, Doctor
and everything else myself.
Carit'Robinson and Limit Robinson
(brothers) came to me yesterday, and
was glad to see them, as they were
among the prisoners the first day and
made their escape that same night.—
They passed in rear of the whole rebel
army and after a day and night tramp
through wildernesses and swamps and
swimming rivers, they swam the Rap
pahannock ten miles oast of Freder
icksburg, and made the Potomac to
their great joy in time to see the Fort
Monroe boat, and get aboard of it.—
They say the robs were very good to
them, but they could not see it to go
to Libby without making an effort to
escape. They made the fort and aro
safe. Captain Robinson is before the
Generals to day giving them an ac.;
count of his escape.
I have more company now, and al
most as much to do as before, as Capt.
King has appointed me his acting Ad

well. Co G had several wounded but
none that I knew killed.

Immense Strawberry Crop.
The Rochester Democrat says : "A
single fact which has come to our
knowledge relating to the strawberry
crop of the past season will doubtless
astonish many of our readers. A
prominent fruit grower in Western
New York, from a single patch of six
teen acres, sent to market sixteen bun.
dred bushels srawborries of the Wil
son Seedling and Triomphe de Gand
varieties. The entire crop sold at an
average price of ono shilling per quart
realizing the snug sum of five thous
and dollars as the product of sixteen
acres of ground. We doubt whether
any other sixteen acres in Western
New York have yielded the like sum
as the result of a single crop. This
may be taken as an instance of the
profitableness of thoroughly scientific
frtiit growing.
For the Globe.
Softly sunset's crimson ray,
Faded in the glowing weet,
As a fair child knelt to pray,
Ero she passed to peaceful rest;
With her meek eyes raised above,
Filled with innocence and love.
Fair and lovely was her face,
Shaded by her golden hair,
Beaming with a quiet grace,
As she lisped her evening prayer
In a low and reverent tone, •
To the High and Holy Ono.
"Father, Thou who reigu'st in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy. holy name;
Let our sins' be all forgiven,-L
Cleanse our souls from guilt and shame;
Let Thy blessed kingdom come,
And Thy holy will be done."

Gen, Grant in Camp.
ASketch of his Personal Habits, &o
A letter writer has been furnished
by a military friend, who had just pas
sed some days at the
: headquarters in
Culpepper, with an account of his vis
it and of tho habits of the Lieutenant
General. The details which he giveS
relate to the personal habits of Gen!.
Grant. They mark and individualize
the man with whom rests much of the
power to affect for weal or woo the
future of this country. Gen. Grant,
says the writer, messes with his staff
in a house in the village; and at his
table sits familiarly every member of
his military family. The expenses of
the mess aro divided among the ten,
not equal proportions exactly, but in a
manner that is satisfactory to all.
There is not the slightest attempt at
shovi or parade in the furniture and
equipage; everything is for use and
economy of trouble and space. The
crockery is scanty and of the plainest,
and the fare, though sufficient in
quantity, is just as homely as that of
any thrifty and careful mechanic , :in
your city. A chop with a cup of cof
fee for breakfast; a bit of roast beef
with potatoes and "hard tack," con
fronting a dish of pork and "greens,"
served fo r . tild=flVo o ' clock dinner,
which was concluded wit
or dessert; a cup of tea Ind a bit of
bread and butter at half past eight o',
clock, finished up the day. The beds
were simply camp cots, some with and
others without mattresses; and all
the toilet apparatus anywhere visible
were a low tin wash basins; a moder
ato supply of towels, a bit of looking
glass, and a horn comb. At the table
neither distilled liquor nor wino is per
mated. The General will not have
either about him, for his own or oth-
era' use
The inventory of the General's bag
gage when ho Made his brilliant cam
paign in the rear of Vicksburg is, I
take it, well remembered—a briar
wood telescope and a tooth brush. In
what relates to personal adornment,
and outside of the necessity of eating
and drinking, personal comfort, he has
not greatly enlarged his .possessions.
His three stars indicate his exalted
rank, but to say nothing of the charm
which, in soldiers' eyes, these glitter
ing marks of rank possess, I doubt if
there is a commissariat officer in his
army who is as plainly clad as he.
His clothes are worn threadbare, and
despite the steady brushing of his ser
vant, they will have an untidy' look,
due, no' doubt, to the •General's habit
of going everywhere and seeing ev
erything for himself. The General
understands the relation between
cleanliness, and godliness; but in his
opinion, practically evinced, there, is
as much of either in a flannel shirt as
in 'one, of linen of drawing room im
Your readers aro not to suppose that
lam describing a careless or indolent
man, or one who does not know the
difference between the garb of a gen
tleman and that of a sloven. The
facts are pointed out only as proof that
this man's mind is•so intent upon the
great problem before him, that be has
neither the time nor the inclination to
consider miserable frivolities. He
holds a great nation's fate in the palm
of his hands; and it is an encourage
ment to know that every faculty of
his mind is calmly but profoundly ex
pressed for the National welfare. All
his thought of carriage centres in the
carriages which boar his field pieces ;
his discussion of the question of eat
ing extends no further than to the ra
tions of his men ; and lie would hate
himself if ho could spend a minute
over the fit or fashion of his coat.
General Grant never swears. No
man in his camp has ever hoard him
give utterance to profanity in any of
its many forms. He rarely laughs, ei
ther; but ho has a sort of grim humor
which is not without its effect. It is
related as a part of the gossip of "the
front," that an officer attached to the
Quartermaster's Department of his ar
my wanted ono wet day to consult
with the General-inChiet. He is a
believer in the old regime, and practi
sed what, under McClellan, he was
taught. Ile had half a dozen - miles to
go, more or less, so ho ordered out his
close carriage, and ,as it was likely
that night would corn° before he could
return, the lamps were trimmed and
hung out on each side 'of the driver's
seat. Then, with an escort of twelve
dragoons, he started, happy, no doubt,
in the belief that he was proof against
the descending rain. Approaching
Culpepper, he met an ordinary looking
nu in on horseback, attended' only by
an orderly. .
As ho passed, he recognized the Lt.
General, who, in spite of the rain, was
making his usual round, in his usual
modest way. To descend from his
carriage and salute his chief was but
the work of a moment; but. Grant, ir
ritated by the style and pretension of
his officer, was in no hurry to see him
gain the shelter of his carriage roof
again. 'Walk along with me a little'
said the General, want to talk with
you.' With polished boots and unex
ceptionable kids, Mr. Quartermaster
did as he was bidden; and with a touch
of that grimness to which I have re
ferred, the General led him through
the muddiest parts of the road, and
did not release him Lillie was wet to
the skin—as wet as the General him
self. lle was then dismissed with an
admonition that will be remembered,
though it was interlarded with no
Incidents of the Battles - in Virginia.
(Correspondence of the IT Y. Tribune.)
—Always at the front when danger
most threatened, übiquitous, at one
time leaning upon the breech . ofa black
ened and hell-vomiting gun, inStruct
ing the gunners where to direct their
fire, at another, along the
lines, encouraging the men, now or
dering up reinforcements or making
changes in tho lines, and always ex
posed to the murderous fire of sharp
shooters and the steeping, storm of
shot and shell. 'At, one time,.when
he was directing tke 6 .fire:of a. battery
in the captured works,-and when ean

cer to the writer yesterday, "I felt an
almost irresistible impulse to approach

Tall and portly, ho must have made an
excellent target for the enemy, but;

his services are so invaluable, he escap

BOYEL—During one of these eventful
nights, when ,the troops lay in lino of
battle behind their temporary fortifi
cations of dirt, logs, and rails, and the
continuous crack of the sharpshooter's
rifle rolled along our front, a solitary
voice struck up the patriotic song,
"Rally round the flag, boys," and al
most instantly thousands of men, who
seemed to have been waiting for some
thing to dissipate the gloom which
thoughts of the day's carnage had en
gendered, were shouting in a chorus
which "shook the depth of the forest's
"The Union forever, hurrah, boye, hurrah!
Down with the traitors and up with the eters,"
As down the lino it went, the refrain
swelled into one vast roar, .exultant,
trumphant, and breathing defiance to
the wary enemy, whose only reply
was the spiteful whiz of extra bullets
from their skirmish line whistling
harmlessly by. This little episode
tended greatly to inspire our troops,
and could not but have equally irrita
ted " Johnny Bob."
lar instance of doggish-hatred to "gray
backs" is found in the case of the slut

to take great interest hi the success of
the bluejackets, to whom she is invar

'grayback' is her especial detestatiim,
which she always exhibits by biting at
them whenever they are brought with
in the reach of her chin. She accom
panies the regiment on picket, but is
always sufficiently discreet to keep
within our lines, whore she vents her
rage by growling and snapping at the
enemy's skirmishers. At the battle
of Fredericksburg her leg was broken,
and, after the wound .was dressed by
some kindhearted surgeon, Sally re
tared to the field on three legs, and
doggedly refused to leave until the

Much Attached to the Marriage
It is usually considered a noteworthy
circumstance for a man or woman to
have been married three times; but of
old this number would have been
thought little of. St. Jerome mentions ,
a widow that married her twenty-see,
and husband, who in his turn had . been
married to twenty wives-surely an
experienced couple. ~
A woman named Elizabeth Mazi,
who died at Florence, 1763, had been
married to seven' husbands, all whom
she outlived: She married the last
the seven at the age of seventy. When
on her death bed she recalled the good
and had points in each of her husbands,
and - hating impartially weighed them
in the balanco r she singled out her
fifth spouse as: her favorite, and desir

_The • death of a soldier is recorded
in 1784, who had five wives; and hiS
widow, aged 90, wept over the grave
of her fourth husband. The writer
who mentioned these facts naively ad:
ded, "The said soldier was Much at
tached to the marriage stage."
There is an account of a gentleman
who had been married to four wives,
and who lived to ho 115 years old.
When ho died ho left twenty-three
"children" alive and well, some'of said
children being from three to fourscore

lam fond of children (says a cele
brated author:) I think them the po
etry of the woAd--theiresh flowers 'pf
our hearths and homes—little conju
rors, with their natural magic; evo
king by their spells what delights and
enriches all ranks, and equalizes: the
different classes of society... Often as
they bring with them anxieties and
cares, and live to occasion sorrow and
grief,.-wo should get on very badly
without them. Only think—if there
was never anything anywhere to be
seen but great grown-up men and.wo
men f flow we should long for the
sight of a little child! Every infant
comes into tho world like a delegated
prophet, the, harbinger and herald'of
good tidings, whose office it is "to
turn the hearts of the, fathers to , the
children," and, to draw "the disobedi
ent to the wisdom of the just."..A. child
softens and purifies rho heart,, warm
ing and. melting it by its gentle'prea
once ; it enriches the' soul by new
inks, and awakens within it . what - is
favorable to virtue. It is a beam of
light, a fountain of love, a teacher
whose lessons few can resist. Infants,
recall us from much that engenders
and encourages selfishness, that free
zes the affections, roughens the man
ners, induratos the heart; they brigh.
ten the home, deepen love, invigorate
exertion, infuse courage, and vivify
and sustain the charities of life. It I
would be a terrible world, I do think,
if not embellished by little children.
Remember thy Creator in the days
of thy youth, while the evil days come
not when thou shalt say, I have no
pleasure in them.
