HEADQUARTERS, 78TH REEVE., P. V.
Naehville, April 23, 1865.
DEAR GLOBE :—As you requested
me, during our absence to write a let
ter occasionally for your paper, I shall
endeaior to comply with your reason
able request, though in these . "latter
days," when.evetlts that would render
an Age historic are crowded into days
and months—at a time when old creeds
and pet theories that have been accep
ted for ages by a large portion of the
world, are bursting like bubbles, dis
solving and vanishing at the touch of
the . superior light and truth of the
present,----it is not an easy task for
men of onty common "calibre" to
write articles or letters interesting or
benefitting to the reading public.
We are now enjoying delightful
weather here, though today it is un
comfortably warm. I think the, do
grep of heat we experience here and
the state of vegetation corresponds
with the first of June in our own "na
Vegetation and Climate
The forests now afford a comfortable
shade, the pear and apple trees and
the. dog wood, have shed their blos
soms; corn, the little that has been
planted," is,about five inches high, and
peas,, beans, potatoes, onions, etc., are
correspondingly advanced, while
rhubarb is plenty in the e rnarkets.—
'Seemingly, the, only objectionable fea
ture we observe in the climate of Ten
nessee; and what in my humble opin
ion muit.ialways prevent this State
from being what many claim for it,
viz: the second Eden, is the sudden
.changes the weather undergoes—from
clear and beautiful weather to terrific
storm, and from heat that is much too
intense for comfort to a chilled state
.of the air that may even - compel - you
to call into -requisition your discarded
overcoat ; or if the change occur . in the
night, which it . frequently does, your
blanket, whose friendship in the even
ing you ignored, suddenly becomes
your" best : friend.
There was only ono snow fell hero
during last Winter, and that only
about two inches in depth:
Nashville and Surroundings.
I am told by citizens and others that
Nashville, with its surroundings, was,
in the palmy days of peace, an attrac
tive city, and it is not hard to believe,
for the marks of its former beauty are
plainly visible in the grounds that
once constituted extensive parks, with
the remains of statuary, vases and
fountains, once, doubtless, tastefully
enclosed; but now only an uninviting
waste, or rendered utterly repulsive
by piles of filth and garbage. '
For miles around Nashville the
ground is occupied by the barracks,
the tent and the parade ground, and
is consequently tramped and driven
over to such an extent that even the
hardy blue grass, that else would soon
clothe the waste with a mantle of liv
ing green,•has to smother its ambition
to peer upward to the glad light of
Spring, and wait patiently beneath

WILLIAM LEWIS, Editor and Proprietor.
nessee, preparatory to 'the inaugura
tion of Gov. Brownlow, and the rees
tablishment of civil government in this
unhappy State. As this was the first
regular meeting of the loyal Legisla
ture of. Tennessee since the winter of
1859-60, it is not surprising that its
assembling and organizing was the
signal for dcmonstrarions of joy on the
part of the noble Unionists of Tennes
see. Flags on the tall signal staffs, or
streaming from public and private
buildings, unfolding to the Southern
breeze' the ever glorious stars and
stripes, the bells that sweetly rang
from State .buildings, churches and
freedman's schools, the deep thunders
—one hundred times told—of Forts
Negley and Moulton's guns, all spoke
in language eloquent: "We, the Union
people of Tennessee, can now by our
Representatives tell and show to the
world how much we love the Old Flag
and the Union."
On the sth. Parson Brownlow was
inaugurated Governor of Tennessee.—
This was a memorable event in the
history of this State. It was an im.
posing and touching scene, and ono
which those who witnessed can never
forget. The inauguration ceremonies
took place in the Representatives' Hail.
By 10 o'clock, A. M., the galleries
were thronged, packed, with soldiers,
citizens, (few ladies,) all watching
with eager interest the proceedings
in the Hall beneath, and anon turning
their eyes toward the great clock on
the wall of the Chamber, noting the
steady approach of the hour hand to
the figures eleven on the dial. Half
an hour thus passed away. The mem
bers of the Senate now came in and a
deputation consisting of members of
both branches was chosen to wait on
Major Generals Thomas, Rosseau, and
Milroy, and conduct them 'int() the
Hall. Just as the minute hand indi
cated five olinutes past eleven o'clock,
and while all eyes were directed to the
door, the dense crowd about the door
separated, making a passage-way, the
members and others rose to their feet,
and the Governor, supported by Mr.
Rogers, Speaker of the Senate, entered
the room. Immediately following
them came Major Generals Thomas,
Rosseau, Milroy, and their respective
staffs, accompanied by many other of,
ficers: The oath was administered,
and the Governor took his seat on the
rostrum. Prayer was then offered,
and immediately after, the Governor
delivered his Inaugural. The address
was listened to with profound attention
and was well received, and when the
Governor alluded to General Thomas
by saying that "while General Thomas
mjght with propriety utter the maxim
—'The pen is mightier than the sword'
—the rebel General Hood could hardly
be expected to believe in it," the sol
diers could not repress their enthusias
tic love for the General, and gave a
hearty cheer. The Governor t eemed
in feeble health, his face was pale, his
frame shook perceptibly, and his voice
was tremulous. As I gazed upon the
emaciated form of this noble man and
saw his palsied left hand shaking vio
lently upon the desk, my mind wan
dered back over his eventful life, and
I felt sad to think that a spirit sp un
yielding in its love for the Union, so
energetic, so impossible to crush, sh'ld
inhabit a tenement ao frail. After the
Inaugural was delivered, a recess was
given and an opportunity afforded for
all present to speak to, and grasp the
hand of General Thomas. Hundreds
crowded round the hero, and to each
one as he grasped his hand he spoke
some kind word of cheer or condolence.
News of - Lee's Surrender
The news of the surrender of Leo's
army reached us on the morning of
the 10th. Soon flags were seen strea
ming wherever you looked, bolls wero
rung, and every body and every thing
—with the exception of the secesh—
seemed almost wild with joy. The
air was rent with more than ten thou
sand voices cheering, and giving utte
rance to the joy of as many hearts.—
Ports Negley and Moulton thundered
a salute of ono hundred guns, and all
went 'merry as a marriage bell.' Alas !
that the scone should change so soon.!
Sadness—Death of Mr. _Lincoln.
The Post Commander, Genl. Miller,
had issued an invitation to the troops,,
in and about Nashville, to join with
Government employees and citizens in
a general jubilee on the 15th, in honor
of the fall of Richmond, the surrender
of Lee's army, and the hoisting of the
Old Flag on Sumpter.
The morning came, sunshiny and
joyous, and by 9 o'clock the troops
from all points in the vicinity of Nash
ville with banners spread, and arms
gleaming in the glad, sunlight, were
gaily marching to the sound of music
toward the city. Assembled in the
city we were about to enter upon the
ceremonies of the day, when an order-
HUNTINGDON, PA„ WEDNESDAY, MAY 10, 18651
ly rode up,.and the Commander read
the telegram announcing the death of
the President at 7,22 in the morning.
We wore stunned by the blow, too
much so to weep. Many would not,
could not believe it. Banners worn
lowered, arms reversed, and, with our
heads bowed and sad hearts, slowly
stepping to the Dead March we re
turned to our respective quarters.—
Flags wore placed at half mast, minute
guns were fired throughout the day,
and the w hole city draped in mourn
ing. The grief that every one felt at
the death of our beloved President is
beyond language to express. The mis
erable rebel wretches in the city—of
whom there is a groat number—are
not included in this connection. Fiend
ish joy was seen depicted in their
countenance. Eight of them that gave
utterance to their feelings were shot
through by the soldiers.
The funeral obsequies that took
place on the 19th were of the most
imposing character. To give anything
like a description of it would require
more space than I could claim. Tho'
the procession moved in columns at
company distance, thus filling the
streets, it required two hours to pass a
given point Thirty thousand per
sons, it is estimated, were present,
and this is below the true figure. 'The
procession moved out one mile on the
Hardin pike, the troops were drawn
Up in a h9llow square, and the cata
falque, drawn by twelve horses, alter
nately white and blaek, took position
in the center of the square. The dif
ferent bands played a dirge, while the
vast soldier throng stood with heads
bowed at "rest on arias." Governor
Brownlow then took the stand close
to the hearse and made an appropri
ate and eloquent address. Just at 12
o'clock a salvo of twenty ono guns
was fired from four batteries present,
and from all the forts. The bands
now played a sweet hymn, and the
vast multitude•began to disperse.
Where we are
Wo are still occupying Transfer
Barracks as I wrote you in my last,
but will have to leave in a day or two.
They aro being whitewashed and nice
ly fitted up. Water is forced up from
the Cumberland by an engine, and
through pipes a plentiful supply is fur
nished to every barrack. The Wash
Room, belonging to the barracks, is
two hundred and fifty feet long, and
furnished with three hundred station
ary wash bowls. Water is thrown in
to these basins by the turning of a
faucet, and •withdrawn by as simple a
movement. A bathing tub fifteen feet
in diameter is at one end of the room,
and water can be let into it and with
drawn in the same- manner as with the
basins; So that there is no excuse for
a soldier not keeping his person neat
and clean here.
The Mess Room is now also finished.
It is four hundred and sixty feet long,
and food can be prepared in it for five
thousand men at one time, and also
this number seated at once. It would
seem as if everything is fitted up here
with a view to making this a perma
nent military post.
Health and Morals of the Company.
The health of our company (Captain
Brewster's) is pretty good, five mon
only being in the hospital, •
The Christian Commission furnishes
us with nice reading material in the
form of religious papers: We hare
by this means access to nearly all the
religious journals of the country. The
Regiment has no Chaplain, but we
have, under the auspices of the Chris
tian Commission, organized a Chris.
tian Association of the 78th, and we
hold prayer meetings every Sabbath,
Tuesday and Thursday evenings.--
The morals of our company is far in
advance of any company in the Regi
ment. Little swearing is heard, and
no card-playing at all, and most of the
men take a lively interest in the moo.
tings for prayer.
It takes from twelve to fifteen days
for letters fo reach ns from home, tho'
they should come through in five days
BE CAREFUL.—An exchange states
that there is more danger attending
the blowing out of kerosene lamps from
the top than many people suppose.
Several instances are recorded in which
lives have been lost, or severe and per-
manent bodily injury inflicted, by the
explosion of lamps from this practice.
The following explanation of the causes

An "Oooasional" Hour with Grant.
(Correspondence or the Philfulelphia Pfees.]
WA.sinNoTorr, April 30, 18(35
The public man most talked : about,
and whose face and form the
our country are most anxious to see, is
unquestionably General Grant: ITo
has been eo retiring and so reticent
that ho has never yet made a speech a
sentence in length, and has only shown
himself in society when duty or stern
custom required it. Ho does not sewn
to have any of the testes for parades;
or reviews, or uniforms, of many of
our commanders, and among- them
some of the bravest and best. Thus,
when his terms had been accepted, a
private and straightforward talk with
Leo, and after a hurried ratification of
it before the assembled armies, he left
the rest of the formula to his officers;
and instead of going to Richmond, the
great prize so long and so bravely
fought for, he turned his horse towards
City Point, took the boat for Wash
ington, reported quietly to the Presi
dent, and then passed to the ears on
his way to see his family at Burling
ton, Now Jersey, having hoard the
news of Mr. Lir:coin's murder on the
boat from Philadelphia to Camden. It
is more then probable that it was his
natural aversion to the demonstrations
of great crowds, and his strongdomes
tie habits, which saved him from the
fat© of our beloved Preeident. I was
among those who witnessed the solemn
ceremony in the East Room of the
Presidential Mansion, on Wednesday,
the 10th of April; in the presence of
the Senators and Representatives of
the United States, the Supreme Court,
the foreign legations, the Cabinet, and
other heads of departments, and the
chiefs of the army and the navy then
in Washington. I noted the entrance
of General Grant. Even in the som
bre chamber, while every heart was
filled kith unutterable woe, and the
sobs of the mourners could he dis
tinctly heard, there was an eagerness
to see and to study the features of the
great soldier who bad conquered the
most extended and tragio conspiracy
in human annals. He took his place
with almost painful modesty, seeming,
as it were, to shrink from observation,
and although many advanced to gaze
upon the lineaments lately so bright
with benevolence and hope, then cold
and stiff in death, General Grant was
not of the number. Ile had doubtless I
taken his last farewell.
When General Sherman entered into
his unfortunate negotiation with Joe
Johnston, the Lieutenant General him
self carried the order countermanding
it. Instead of making elaborate prep
arations, I quote the words of One who
saw him take his leave: "lie had
with him only his small carpet bag:
and a full cigar ease." Yesterday morn
ing General Grant returned from Ra
leigh and laid the result of his confer
ence before the President. As I had
never had tho honor of a formal intro
duction to or conversation with Gen
eral Grant, 1 embraced the opportu
nity of being presented to him last
evening, in company- with two gentle.
men, ono of them his intimate friend.
He was not in his room when wo ar
rived, so wo waited till be came in
from the War DevartMent. I confess,
when, the door softly opened, and a
gentleman about the sizo'of Governor
Andrew, of Massathusetts, first quietly
looked in, and then as quietly entered,
smoking the stump of a cigar, I was a
good deal surprised. We were accord
ingly introduced. Putting his hand
into his side: pocket he drew thence a
paper of regalias, lighted a fresh one
himself, at the same time offering them
to his guests. And this was the Lieu
tenant General of theirresistible army
of the United States I This was tho
man whose achievements as well in
,capturing Richmond as in the closing
scene with Leo are now discussed at
every Arderiban fireside, and by allthe
military critics in the Civilized world I
But for the three stars on his shoulders
he never would bo taken for what'ho
is by a stranger. Indeed, in citizen's
dress, he would look more like a :re.
epectable Pennsylvania farmer than
thorough-bred military man. There
is such an absence of -tbo characteris
tics of the. Martinet that it was diffi
cult to realize that wo stood in the
presence of the first soldier in the
world. Gen. Grant reached his forty
third year on 'Friday, from which you
may have an idea that he is
Young-looking, as indeed ho is. There
was no Care on his brows, no hesita
tion in his speech, and not the slight
est.disposition to conceal his thoughts
or his opinions. In this I was as much
Surprised as in the singular simplicity
of his bearing. That ho was a gentle-
Man y6u perceived at once. He does
not talk like a. Now Englander, or a
Southerner, but reminded• me of a
Scotch Irish Western Pennsylvanian.
could easily Understand, h'Avever, in
his looks, and in every word he spoke,
that I was gazing upon and listening
to the happiest man'in America.; le
felt (none more so) the great loss sus 7
tained by mankind, but there was in
his whole deportment a consciousness
that the rebellibn was crushed, that an
honorable peace was at hand, and that
our illastrious 'President had been tille•
ceeded by ore eminently fitted to
finish the good work. Ile paid the
highest tribute to Gen. Shbrman's pa
triotism, complimented him for his as
tonishing march from Savannah to
Goldsboro, and incidentally stated ; that
he bad himself selected him for that
undertaking on account of his rare ca
pacities. le also spoke of the prompt
manner in which the orders counter
manding the negotiations with Joe
Johnston bad been executed by Gen.
Sherman 'and his corps commanders.
When he referred to the condition of
the Southern people it was as one who
talked of an unfortunate, a desolated
race. Two armies had fought, advan.
cod, and. retroated, again- and again,
over the best portion of their soil, and
had left despair, and misery, and al
most starvation, before, behind, and
around them. Although ho carefully
avoided the slightest reference to pol
itics, or to the numerous suggestions in
connection with what is called recon
struction or organization; and confined
himself strictly to military topics, he
more than once revealed that he would
treat the masses of the South with kind
ness and humanity, especially in view
of the fact that they had been forced
to obey their own desperate loaders.
In referring to the surrender of - ,Gen.
Lee, of whom, by the way, he spoke
highly (as he did of Joe 'Johnston), he
said that his army (Lee's) had been
dreadfully reduced in the retreat. That
rebel chief was touched
_by tho liberal
terms conceded to him by the Lieut.
General Grant, and when he intimated
to Grant that ho trusted every effort
would be made to conclude the ar
rangements, so that his soldiers might
immediately be paroled and sent to
their homes, he added that they were
in a pitiable condition, not having had
the most ordinary rations for two
days. It, was then 'that General Grant
'directed his commissaries to issue to
the surrendered forces rations for
nearly twenty-six thousand mon. I
mention this circumstance in refuta
tion of a charge that. Gen. Leo had de
manded rations, when the fact is that
Grant tendered them, as I have stated.
Of one thing this interview imprestied
my friend and myself; the great plans
which have excited . so much admira-'
tion, and have been so unflinchingly
adhered to, in the midst of ridicule,
calumny, and 'disaster, until victory
sealed and confirmed them, have been
the plans of General Grant himself.

Sergeant McKinney informed his com

The Sergeant, seeing two men

Boston Transcript • ;,
For several years past I have.sppyt ,
a few weeps of the latter of August:on ,
the Kenebee river, in Maine. The, ludi c;
with whom I stopped is a highlyac
complished and intelligent housewifO,,,
She supports a thennery,' and from_
I derived my information in this mat
tor. She told me that for many , yeark,
she had been in the habit of admin.i;3-
tering to her hens, with their common_
food,atthe rate of a teaspoonful ofoa,y
enne pepper -oath alternate day to
dozen of her fowls: linst season :When
I was with her, each morning, she.hrdt
in twelve or fourteen eggs, having
bat sixteen hens in all., She agaittand
again experimented hi the matter, by
omitting to feed with the Cayenne pep
per for two or three;days. Ther . onee 7 ,_,
pence invariably was,that her product
of eggs fell off to Ave orsixperday•
The same effect of using Cayenne pep-.
per is produced in 'Winter as well
Eons FOIL SETTING.-1110 following
may be of service to those who would
have a chicken for every egg they set:
Take eggs not more than three Or .
four days old, and have a candle or a
lamp; hold the egg in ono, hand with
the broad end upward cleSe to thei
die; place the edge of the other hand
on the top of the egg, and you Wilt:in - 3
mediately see the incubation end 06* .
people can tell
,a pullet'frOm'S rooster. -
TGo mark for a rooster,is crosswise
a pullet lengthwise. Another Way is to -
place your tongue on the large end of'
the egg,and you will find a Strong heat:
if fresh and, good, and the - less' tieht if'
old and doubtful Eggs'Put up for,
hatching should nev,er be pt in'"a'
damp cellar, as the dampness destroys
READING A. - rNmint. - -Reading should
be avoided when it interferes with - neo-
Mary repose, as it - does when per- ,
sued at a late hoUr of night. It then
has a pernicious influence upon' the
health first, then upoifthe spirits,then
upon the mind itself .The knowledge
gained in this way is . for the most fiart
but of little value, for it 'is,gained,at
the expense of mental vigm,andsotne
times 'oven Of life itself. The OelebrEiteat
Williiiiii Pine - 1030y, the ,great
land orator, fell a sacrifice to latelread
rug. To read when yuu,onglit to., be
in bed, especially to road when in bed,
is to inflict a great evil on yourself
without an equivalent It ia to injure
your eyes, your - brain, piur neinrous
system,'und your intellect •
