Monday, June 6,1864, will long be
remembered by the people of Harris
burg, as a day glorious in their annals,
as an occasion honorable in all its rec
ollections. At early dawn the peo
ple began to busy themselves, each
man and woman in the city engaged
to improvise something fitting for the
reception of Pennsylvania Reserves.
Chief Marshal Kepner, and his Aids,
Messrs. Williams, and Jennings, were
on the street making every possible
exertion to hurry forward the arrange.

The Crowds on the Side-Walks.
Market street, from the river bank
to the depot; on both sides, •was one
dense mass of men, women and chil
dren. We never before witnessed so
large a gathering of our people. All
who could get out were on the side
walks. The old man of three-score

The Approach of the Reserves.
When the train which carried the
Reserves approached the city, and
while it was on the immense bridge
which spans the broad bosom of the
Susquehanna, another great crowd had
assembled at the foot of Mulberry st.,
and as the train left . the bridge at
that locality the enthusiasm of the

most tumultuous cheering. Such a
scene we never before witnessed. For
a moment it was &tired that hundreds
would be mangled beneath the wheels
of the cars. The rush all along Mul
berry street was tremendous and as
the train passed over that portion of
the road and reached the depot, the
crowd increased until the avenue was
filled with an excited, enthusiastic and
even tumultuous mass of human be
ings. While all this was going on as
the train passed.to the depot, the bolls
of the city were rung and from every
street, avenue and alley crowds of peo
ple hurried to the depot. At that
point the excitement was increased
The Disembarkation of the Reserves.
As soon as the train stopped, the
troops began with great order to dis
eMbark. But there Wes no time offer
ed for the display of much discipline;
and the men were at once convoyed
to the Soldiers' Retreat, where a sub
stantial collation awaited them, pre
pared under the auspices of the mili
tary authorities. Before and after the
men had finished their collation, warm
greetings took place between old
friends and companions-in4i.rms. These
were eloquent and impressive. We
saw strong men grasping each others'
hands while big tears glistened on
their brown cheeks—We noticed other
salutations, full of that rough sinceri
ty which.distinoaislies the true sol
dier—while others again were perfect
ly uncontrollable, literally_ wild with
the joy at finding themselves once
more among their friends.
The Collation at the Soldiers' Best
The collation at the Soldiers' Rest
was gotten up with great liberality
and the men enjoyed themselves with
the hot coffee, ham and soft brea4ro
vided for the occasion. In the Re
treat all was order, save when some
of the citizens recognized an old friend
or acquaintance, and then within a
little circle, the warmth of the greet
ing communicated itself to those ar
ound, until many a man became hap
py without being exactly able to ex
plain the cause of his joy.
The Line on Market Street
The column, constituting the Gov
ernor of the Commonwealth and his
staff, the Mayor of the city and the
councils, the Firemen and Civic socie
ties, the 'First New York Artillery,
with the soldiers of 1812, stretched al
ong the entire length of Market street
That thoroughfare was splendidly dec
orated with flags, the hotels and pri

places of business were closed to per
mit the employees to participate in
Moving of - the Column
At 111 o'clock, the signal given
from Capitol Hill announced the mo
ving of the column, and as the proces
sion passed over the route a salute of
one hundred guns was fired by a de
tail from the New York battery, the
bells and the steam whistles of the city
mingling their chimes and their shrill
sounds with the acclaims of the people
We will not attempt to describe the
demonstrations of the people. It was
all that gratitude could dictate—warm
generous and spontaneous from the
hearts of the masses.

Addresses of the Reception
Mayor .Nolonian Addressed the Re
serves as follows :
Hail ! brave soldiers of Pennsylva
nia! In the .mime of the citizens of
Harrisburg, I greet you with a hearty
welcome—a most hearty welcome !
Three years ago you marched to the
field in all the pride and vigor of your
manhood. During that eventful peri
od you have boon in fifty battles !
Your proverbial bravery and devotion
always placed you in the post of dan
ger, and, on every occasion, your solid
column of granite gloriously breasted
the shock of battle I By flood and by
field, on the plains and in the moun
tains, you have shed your best blood
upon every battle field, and there loft
your dead as monuments of your in
domitable courage. The march, the
bivouac, the picket and the fight, have
thinned your valiant ranks from twen
ty thousand men, down to the shatter•
ed remnants that how stand before mo.
There is no parallel in modern wariare
of such destruction in any corps, un
less it be the Russian campaign of the
great Napoleon, in which regiments
were either annihilated or reduced to
mere squads You have cast around
the military fame of -Pennsylvania a
halo of glory unrivalled in the military
annals of history. The eighteen thou
sand departed heroes who sleep the
long sleep of death upon the devasta
ted fields of Virginia, have bequeathed
to you, not only their unrivalled fame,
but also the affection of your fellow
citizens and of the bereaved ones who
now mourn their irreparable loss.
The committee of arrangements had
intended to give you a public: dinner

Baud of Music
on this very spot, upon the day of
your arrival. But you are as prompt
to surprise your friends as your ono•
mies, and you took us unawares. You
fairly outflanked us. We therefore
fell back in good order, of course, upon
the reserve of our fellow citizens, who
have cheerfully volunteered to enter•
thin you at their private residences on
Wednesday next, at two o'clock p m.
Then, you will enjoy their hospitali
ty and the comforts of home to which
you have so long been strangers.—
There, they will lend a greedy ear to
the relation of your hair breadth es
! capes and valiant exploits, and there,
I trust, you will have a foretaste of the
peaceful enjoyments that await you at
home. May you speed there in safety.
And when the alarms of war have
ceased ; when the olive branch displa
ces the ensanguined laurel; when each
of you again sits down in peace under
his vine and fig tree, surrounded by
friends and neighbors, the mere mon•
t;on that ho was a soldier of the Penn
sylvania Reserves will elicit the an
mei', "behold a bravo man !"

ly restored, the Governor proceeded
to address the vast multitude. The
cheers were so vehement during the
delivery of the address that the voice
of the Governor could sometimes he
but very indistinctly heard. lie said:
I thank you, Mr. Mayor of Harris
burg, and the people of' this city, for
this most hearty welcome to these
brave men. The hearts of this great
people have been stirred to their depths
by the presence of this shattered re
mains of the once mighty corps, and I
cannot find language to express to you,
bravo soldiers, the sentiments and
feelings of Pennsylvania more proper
than in this brief sentence: " You have
done your whole duty to your country!"
It is nearly three years since you
loft this city a mighty army. Nearly
that length of time has passed since I
had the honor of handing to you these
standards which you are now here to
return in honor to the State to-day.
You have never visited the State since
then save once. Once you came back
to Penn Sylvania and then we all heard
of" Bound Top" at Gettysburg. When
the rest gave way, we heard your
shouts around the strongholds of the
Inc in that devoted country, and to
you—to the Reserves of Pennaylvania
—belong the honor of chariging the
tide of battle there. (Immense cheering
among the Reserves and a voice,
I cannot speak of your deeds—they
have passed into history already.
I have not time to enumerate the bat
tles you have been in. History will
record all you have done for your coun
try. But there aro times when I feel
proud of my office, for hero represen
ting in my office, and speaking in
my place bore for all the people of this
State. I bear record of the bravo
Pennsylvania Reserves Corps that is
without blemish or spot! (Cheering.)
I this day thank God that we ever
armed the gallant Reserves I cannot—
I cannot speak in the perilous times of
war with these surroundings; I am not
qualified to speak of the heroic dead
you have left upon every battle-field
of the Republic ; upon their graves
centers the gratitude of this great
But I can welcome you to your
homes. From the North to the South,
and from the East to the West, the
old Commonwealth bids you welcome!
I need not remind you of your deeds.
I am not equal to it, my fellow-citizens.
The blood of the dead rushes red on
my sight, and I have no language
adequate to express my gratitude to
your corps. (Applause.)
We did not know three years ago
that you would remain so long in the
public service; and yet it is so. But
1 can refer with pride and pleasure to
the cont this groat State ha borne in
the oest—froM Drainesvillo down
to last Monday, when you struck your
heaviest blow! (Great enthusiasm
amongst the soldiers of the Reserves.)
May you all find a happy welcome
to your homes! May you ever be
marked as bravo men who served
their country faithfully in times of
great peril. May you never regret
that you -belonged to the Pennsylva
nia Reserve corps, fighting on every
battle field of the Republic.
With this welcome, I bid you fare
well ; I had something to do with ma
king the Reserve corps—God he blessed!
(The enthusiasm hero was very great;

I am not ashamed to boast in this
multitulnous assemblage of sunburnt,
bronzed faces. that I have stood by
the Reserve corps in all their histo
ry. I bid you welcome freely.
Tremendous cheers for Governor
Curtin and General Grant followed.
Col. RimErt of the Reserves, spoke
in reply to the speeches of the Mayor
of Harrisburg and the Governor of
Pennsylvania. In the name of what
was once a great division, he thanked
the citizens of Harrisburg for their
welcome this day. They had over
whelmed the returning soldiers with
kindness—a kindness which went to
their hearts to create pleasing recollec
tions which would last forever. All I
have to say in reply must be couched
in language peculiar to the Reserves.
Boys give the people such cheers as
we gave, the enemy at Bothsaida Church
on Monday last. [The boys gave the
cheers—and wo must confess that they
were yells which fairly made the wel
Col. McCandless, of the 2d Reserves,
then addressed the corps. He was
proud to call the men comrades. He
had been with them in many of their
fights, and now when welcomed home
by their friends, after having passed
through the fight, and done our duty,
it is gratifying to us to be welcomed.
We are willing for as many years
more as we have already battled for
the old flag, again to enter the service
of the Government and again contend
with the traitor foe.
Col. Biddle Roberts next addressed
the Reserves, in ono of his character
istic speeches, which we regret nothav
ing the time or space even to•sketch.
The Reserves then gave three hearty
cheers for the Governor of the Com
monwealth and the citizens of Ear
risburg, after which they left the cap
itol grohnds, the immense crowd fol
lowing and dispersing.
Incidents of the Reception.
The members of the Harrisburg bar
had provided themselves with carriag
es, and had already occupied these in
lino, when it was announced that there
wore many wounded men with, the
Reserves who•could not possibly march
over the route. On this information
the bar at once gave up their carriages,
insisting that the wounded soldiers
should occupy the same, while the boy
al gentlemen took their place in line
and walked over the rout! We mm•
Lion this in honor of the bar. •
Along the route nothing could ex
ceed the enthusiasm of the children.
At many points little girls were sta.
tioned with boquots, which, they be
stowed upon the soldiers, and moro
than one sturdy boy was seen bearing
the musket of the soldiers, as if anx
ious to relieve the returning hero s of
all their burdens.
The battle flags of some of the reg
iments attracted marked attention
Some of them were literally only a
mass of ribbons clinging to the flag
staffs. But what stories of trial and
courage and suffering there told
as they fluttered in the breeze.
A DAY'S MARCH.
AN INCIDENT or TIIE WAR
Bight above our heads blazed the
sun. We looked up pi
teously at the glaring sky, hopinc , e' in
vain to see some friendly cloud inter
pose in our behalf, and cast a generous
shadow over our panting columns.—
But nothing save the clear blue of in
terminable space, unrelieved by a sin
gle cloud, and emblazoned by the
scorching s un, met our despairing eyes.
Still . We marched,en,,Qur blouses satu
rated with perspira.tionrand our tom
pies throbbing painfully•amid the dull
tramp of a thonsand brogans. Each
one of the innumerable straps which
complete the harness of a soldier seem
ed to sink gradually into our burning
flesh. We dare not drop from the
ranks and stretch our wearied limbs on
the yellow grass, or we would famish
for water, as none had been seen for
many a weary mile; so still wo moved
on. Beside me walked a pale, slender
young fellow, whom the boys had
christened 'gentle Joe,' doubtless on
account of his mild disposition. Joe
and I had been great friends since he
had been transferred along with Borne
eight or ten others, some six months
previous. He was a meek little fellow,
and as a matter of course was tyran
ized over by the rest. I often mot him
about camp, and eventually took an
interest in him, and protecting him as
far as lay in my power, from imposi
tion ; and indeed one day rescued him
, from the hands of a drunken rascal,
who, with an iron ramrod, was about
to impose summary punishment on
poor Joe, because forsooth, the little
fellow had declined visiting the Quar
termaster's tent, for the purpose of re
alizing a canteen of whiskey. After
this I made an attempt to have him
transferred into our mess, and to his
evident joy, succeeded. lore, under
my protection, Joe scorned perfectly
happy; for, though in action, he was
as brave as the bravest, ho appeared
to have a mortal terror of the rough
ways of the men. lEs modesty form
ed a capital subject for the witty, and
I would often see him turn scarlet at
some rough joke. Ile was very fond
of me, however, and by many a little
incident of se'f sacrifice 1 knew the pa
tient affection of gentle Joe.
But to return to our march., As I
said, I was dragging my weary limbs
along beside my friend, who, in spite
of my own suffering, inspired me with
pity. His eyeballs were turned pain- I
fully towards the lids ; his lips dry,
cracked and bleeding, were drawn
tightly across his teeth ; his knapsack
hung flapping from his narrow shoul
tiers; and but one drop of sweat rolled
down his cheek—a drop of mortal ag
ony, pressed from an unwilling brain.
Yet he bore up, and his burning feet
. still echoed to the thousands around.
On, on we tramped; our clothes pow
dered, our beards gray, and our lungs
stinging with the hateful dust. Anon
ad unfortunate falling in convulsions
by the way, and the surgeon bending
over him in piteous helplessness, for
his flask is long empty, were the only
interruptionsin our monotonous march
But no signs of commisseration dis
turbed the clogged expression of the
grim faces that passed. All feelings,
all senses were lost in one of intense
thirst. N 6 familiar shout greeted the
colonel as ho rode along the line, trying
with ghastly smiles to cheer his mon,
or with husky voice and swollen tongue
to venture a melancholy joke. Even
the dumb stones received no curse as
they struck the soldier's foot as he
went stumbling an.
'Let me take your musket, Joe,' I
said, fearing he would sink down. He
shook his head and staggered on.
'Will you give me that gun ?' I re

wild steps, reeling like a drunken man
can carry it, Torn,' ho answered,
looking up gratefully. I saw it was
useless to ask him, as the brave little
fellow would never have relinquished
it; and it was evident that both ho and
tbe musket must soon fill unless he
was relieved. Therefore, I unslung
my knapsack, and leaving it in my
tracks, took the piece from his shoul
der. We bad hardly gained 'another
mile before my head began to whirl,
and the glittering bayonets ahead
seemed a flickering sheet of flame. I
felt myself staggering.
'Hero, Tom, I have some water,

you mocking me? No, Joe never

"Then for God's sake drink yourself
for I won't," I answered; determined

up his face. I stood confounded; was
he crazy ? Then, for, the first time,
the truth flashed upon my bewildered
senses. I had taken his last drop of
water, and ho was famishing. I turn
ed to him in an agony of remorse. He
was lying upon his. back, with his
eyes closed. I knelt beside him, and
placed my hand on his temple; he
slowly opened his great: brown eyes.

Thought a Means of Developing the
There is connected with man some
thing more than more corporal exist
ence, and the exercise of these func
tions is not all that ho has to do in lifo.
Supplied with all the wants of the bo
dy, he is still incompetent to fulfill the l i
destiny of an intellectual being in the
meanest calling. There is, within, a'
source of action, a main . spring of
power, which, is the mind; armed with
this weapon, well burnished and keen,
man goes forth into the battlo field of
life, a fit being to perform the duties
of a high calling. The mind is a gem
which when cultivated is like the
sparkling diamond that combines the
qualities of beauty and value.
Tho polishing of this gem, the culti
vation of the mind, is a thing of •no
mean consideration. That the mind
can be developed is beyond the possi•
bility of a denial:; but it is to be devel
oped only by the exercise of its own
thinking , powers. Place before the
Mind's eye scones the most interesting
and instructive, and unless the powers
of thought are exorcised, the mind is
not bonefitted by the sight. Preach to
it the essence of all the love of the past
and strive to feed it with the richest
of mental attainments, yet if mighty
thought do not welcome these into the
store house of the mind, your labor
will have been in vain. What are our
greatest men but those who carry into
effect the workings of a vigorous and
well trained thought? The truthful
pages of history reveal to us glowing
intellects who have come out in splen-
