Furthor on in tho printod testimony
Ames, whon asked whether Garfield
had bocn bettered $329 by his transao
tlon, replied : " That is all there is of it."
OAItPIELD S PRITENCI TUB HRITIE WAS
The fullowing is an extract from
Oukes Ames' further testimony before
tho Poland Committeo in rolerenco to
Garfield's claim that tho amount re
ceived bv him from Ames was a loan
y. What the Committeo want to
learn is whether in conversation with
any of theso gentlemen they bave stat
ed or admitted tho matter to be dill'er
ent from what thoy havo testified bo
foro tho Committeo? A. 1 hardly
know how to answer that question.
y. Take any ono that occurs to you ;
IU1. AUUilnn, iuiiu ui iiiu tvimuilvluy
suggests Mr. Garfield 7 A, Mr. Gur
field hits been to soe mo about the
matter and we have talked it over. A
part of tbo time he thinks it was a loan
sometimes ho thinks be has repaid mo ;
and then again be is In doubt about It.
(i. You may state whethor in con.
vernation with yon Mr. Garfield claims,
as he claimed before us, that the only
transaction betwoen you was borrow
ing $300 ? A. No, sir, be did not claim
that witb mo.
Q. State how he doos claim It with
you ; what was said ; state all that
occurred in conversation botwoon you?
A. 1 cannot romombor hall ol it. I
have had two or throo interviews with
Hr. Garfield. He wants to put it on
the basis of a loan. Ho states that
when he came hack from Kurope boing
in want of funds, he called on me to
loan him a sum of money, He thought
he bad repaid it, 1 did not know. I
y. What did you say to him in
rctoronco to that state ol the caso 7 A
I stated to bim that be bad nover ask
ed me to lend him any money ; that 1
never knew bo wanted to borrow any.
I did not know be was short. I mailo
a statement to him showing the trans
anfinn anrl what tliorA wrea rliiA rrn If
that deducting the bond divided and
the cash dividend there was $329 due
him, for which I bad given bim
chock ; that he had nover asked me to
loan bim any monoy, and 1 nover
loanod bim any.
y. Aftor you bad mado tho state
ment what did he aay in roply ? A,
He wantod to have it go as a loan.
y. Did he claim that it was in faot
a loan 7 A. No, air; 1 do not think
he did. No, he did not.
O. Go on then and stale what was
said ; all the discussion that took plane?
A. I cannot tell yoa all ; wo had throe
or four tulks: I cannot remember all
that was said.
i. How long after that transaction
did ho go to Kuropo? A. 1 boliovo it
was a year or two.
(i. Did vou have any conversation
in roloronce to influence this transac
tion would have upon tho election last
Fall? A. Yes, hosaid it would bovery
iniuriotis to bim.
y. Wbatclaoin reference to that?
A. 1 am a very Iwid man to repeat con
versation ; cannot roinembor
(j. Stuto all yea know in relorence
to it. A. I told bim ho knew vory
well that that was a dividend. I mado
out a statement tod showed it to bim
at the time. In ono conversation he
admitted it and 'aid, as near as 1 can
remember that there was $2,400 due
him in stock and bonds. Ho made a
littlo memorandt.i of $1,000 and $1,
400, and as I recollect', said there was
$1,000 of Union Pacif.c railroad stock,
$1,000 of Crodit Mobilie-stock and $ 100
of stock or bonds ; I di not recollect
(j. When was tbat nomoranduin
mado? A. It was madoin my room ;
I cannot remember the dato; it was
since this investigation ctmmencod.
Q. Was it in that conversation that
be referred to the infitioncotais matter
would bave upon tho electitn in his
district? A. 1 do not rocollecl whether
it was in that one or somo ather. I
bad two or three conversations witb
y. Tell us, aj nearly as ion can,
precisely tbe remarks he macb in that

HANCOCK 8 OWN BTonr OF OETTYKBURQ
BEFORE THE COMMITTEE ON THE
CONDUCT OP THE WAR,
1 Boon received an order, dated 1.10
P. M., directing mo to proceed to tho
front, and in the event of the death ot
General Reynolds, or his inability to
command, to assumo tho command of
all tbo troops thero, consisting of the
1st, 3d, and 11th Corps. (Order ap
pended marked A. ) 1 started a little
before half past one, turning over tho
command of my corps to General Gib
bons, under Goncrul Meados direc
tions. General Gibbons was not the
next in rank in that corps; but be
was tho oneGonoial Meade directed
should assume the command, as ho
considered him the most suilablo per
son for it.
Sovcral such incidents occured dur
ing that battld. Gonoral Meade prior
to tho battle, showed mo, or told mo
of a letter ho had received from tho
Secretary of war on this subject. The
Government rocognir-ing tho difficulty
of the situation, behoving that a bnttio
was Imminent, and might occur in
ono, two, or three duys, and not
knowing the viows of General Moade
in relation to bia commanders, tho
Secretary of War wroto him a note,
authorising him to make any changos
in bia army that he pleased, and that
bo would be sustained by the Presi
dent and himself. That did not make
it legal, because it was contrary to
tho law to place a junior officer ovor a
senior. At tbe sumo time it was one
of those omergoncios in which General
Moade was authorized, as before stated,
to excrciso tbat power. I waa not the
senior of eitbor General Howard, of
the 11th corps, or Gonoral Sickles, ol
tho 3d corps. My commission bore
dato on the same day witb theirs ; by
my prior commission thoy both ranked
mo. Of courso it was not a vory agroo-
able oflice for me to fill, to go and
tako command ot my seniors. How
ever, 1 did not Icol mucn omDarrass-
mcnt about it, bocause 1 was an older
soldier than eithor of them. Hut I
know that legally it was not proper,
and tbat if they cboso to resist, it
might become ft vory troublosomo
matter to mo for tbo time being.
Whothoror not Gonoral Meade, whon
he gave me tbe order, know about
this relative rank, 1 do not know. I
Bay this because I have since under
stood that he did not. Wbon I apoko
to him about it before departing, how
over, he remarked in substance that
ho was obliged to uso such persons as
ho felt disposed to use ; that in th is case he
sent me bocause be bad explained bis
viewa to mo, and had not explained
them to tbe others ; that I knew bis
plans and ideas, and could accord bet
ter with bim in my operations than
anybody else, I wont to Gettysburg,
arriving on me ground not later man
half past throo o'clock. I found tbat,
practically, tho fight was then ovor.
The rear of our column, with tho ono
my in pursuit, waB then coming
through tho town of Gettysburg.
General Howard was on Ceinctory
Hill, and thoro bad evidently beon an
attempt on his part to stop and lorm
somo of hia troops thero ; what troops
bo had formed thero I do not know.
1 understood aftorwards, and accepted
it as tho fact, that he had formed one
division thero prior to this timo, 1 told
General Howard I had orders to take
command in tho front. I did not
show him orders, bocauso ho did not
demand it. He acquiesced.
1 exercisod the oommand until even
inir. whon Gonoral Blocum arrived,
about 6 or 7 o'clock. His troops wero
in tbo neighborhood, lor thoy appar
ently bad been summoned up before
I arrivod, by Gonoral Howard pnsai
hly, as woll as the 3d corps. When
General Slocum arrivod, ho boing my
Bcnior, and not included in this order
to mo, 1 turned tbe command over to
him. In fact I was instructed verbal
ly hy Gonoral Iluttorfield, Chief of
Staff, before 1 Ivlt for the front, that
I w i J .
When I arrived and took command
I extonded tho lines: I sent Gonoral
Wadsworth to tho right to tako pos
session of Gulp's Hill with his division.
1 directed General Goary, whoso di
vision belonged to tho 12th corps ( its
commander, General Slocum, not tlion
having arrived ) , to take possession of
the high ground towards Round Top.
1 made such disposition as 1 thought
wiso and proper, Tho enemy evidently
believing that wo wore reinlorccd, or
our wholo army waa thoro, discontin
ued Ihdir groat efforts, and the battlo
tor that day was virtually over.
Thoro was firing of artillery and skirm
ishing all along tho front, but that
was the end of that days battle. Hy
vorbal instructions, and in the order
which I had rocoived irom Gonoral
Moade, I was directed to report, after
having arrived on tho ground, whether
it would bo necessary or wise to con
tinue to fight the battlo at Gettysburg,
or whothor it was possiblo lor the
fight to bo had on the ground Gonoral
Mcadohad selected. - About 4 o'clock
P. M. I sent word by Major Mitchell,
aid do-camp io General Meado, that I
would hold tho ground until dark,
meaning to allow bim time to decide
tbo matter lor himself. As aoon aa I
had gotten matters arranged lu my
satisfaction, and saw that tho troops
wore being formed again, and I felt
aecuro, I wroto a note to General
Meado, and informod him oi my views
ol the ground at Gettysburg. I told
him that the only disadvantage which 1
thonghtithad was that itoould be road,
ily turned by way of Kmmetiaburg, and
that tho road waa clear lor any move
ment ho might make. 1 bad ordered
all the trains back, aa I came up, to
olear the roads.
Goneral Meade had directed my
corps, the 2d corps, to march up to
wards Gettysburg, under tbo command
of General Gibbons. When 1 lound
that tbe enemy bad ceased their oper
ations, I directed General Gibbons to
bait bis corps two or throo miles bo-
hind Gettysburg, in order to protect
our rear Irom any flank movement of
tbo enemy. 1 ben my operations in
the front being closed, 1 turned tho
command ovor to General Slocum, and
immediately started to report to Gen.
Meado in detail what 1 had dono, in
order to express my views clearly to
bim, and to see what bo was disposed
to do. 1 rode back and lound Gen
Meado about 9 o'clock. Ho told mo
be had received my mossages and note,
and bad decided upon tbe rcprcscnta
lions 1 bad mado, and the existence of
known tacts of tho caso, to tight at
Gettysburg, and had ordered all tho
corps to the front. That waa tbo end
of operationa for that day.
On tho third day, in tho morning,
the enemy and General Slocum were
a good deal engaged. About ono or
two o'clock in the uflornoon the onemy
commencod a terrific cannonado from
probably one hundred and twenty
fiieces of artillery, on tho front of the
ine connecting Cemetery Hill with
Round Top, tho lelt centre commanded
by me. 'that lino consisted of tho 1st,
2d, and 3d corps, of which I had the
general command. 1 commanded that
whole front. General Gibbons com
manded the 2d corps in my abscence,
Gonoral Nowton the 1st corps, and
General llirnoy the 3d. That cannon
ado continued for probably an hour
and a half. The enemy then made an
assault at tho end of that timo. It
was a very formidable assault, and,
mado, 1 should jndgo, witb about
18,000 infantry. When tho columns
of the enemy appeared it looked as
it they were going to attack tho
centre of our line, but alter marching
straight out a little distance, they
seemed to incline a little to theirobjeet
was to march through my command
and soizo Cemetery Hill, which 1
havo no doubt was their intcntiun.
They attackod with wonderful spirit
nothing could have been more spirited.
The shock of the assault fell on the 2d
and 3d divisions of tbo 2d Corps, assio
ted by a small brigade of Vermont
troops, together with tho artillery of
our line, which fired from Round Top
to Ccmoiory Hill at tho enemy all the
way as thoy advanced whenever they
had tbo opportunity. Those wore the
troops that really met tho assault. No
doubt there wero other troops that
tired a littlo, but those wore troops
that really withstood the shock of the
assault and repulsed it. The attack
of the onomy was met by about six
small brigades ot our troops, and was
finally repulsed alter a torrifie contest
at very closo quarters, in which our
troops tdok about thirty or forty oolors
and some 4,000 to 6,000 prisoners, with
gioat loss to the enemy in killed and
wounded. Tbo repulse was a most
signal one, and that docidod tho bat
tle, and was practically tho end ot tho
fight. I waa wounded at tbo close of
the aecwult, and that andad any nparau
lions with the army for that campaign.
I did not follow in its future move
ments. That practically ended the fighting of
the battle of Octtsyburg. Thoro was no
Borious fighting tbero after that, save
on tho lelt, in an advance by a small
command of tho Pennsylvania Re
serves, made very aoon aftorwards and
based npon our success, i may say
one thing bore : 1 think it was proba
bly an untorlunato tiling that 1 was
wounded at the time I was, and equally
unfortunate that Gonoral Gibbous was
also wounded, because the absence of
a prominent commander, who know
tho circumstances thoroughly at such
a momont as that, was a great disad
vantage. 1 think that our lines should
havo advanced immediately, and 1 be
lieve we should havo won a great vic
tory. 1 was very confident that the
advance would be mado. General
Meade told mo before tho fight tbat if
tbo enemy attacked me he intended to
put tho 5th and 0th Corps on the
enemy's flank ; therefore, whon I was
wounded and lying down in my ambu
lance and about leaving the field, I
dictated a note to General Meado, and
told him if ho would put in the 5lh and
fitb corps 1 boliovcd ho would win
a great viotory. I asked bim after
ward when I returned to tho army
what ho had done in tho promises. Ho
said he had ordored tho movement,
but tho troopB wore slow in connccling,
and moved so slowly that nothing was
dono before night, except that soiuool
tho Pennsylvania Reserves went out
and mot Hood's division, it was under
stood, of tho enemy, and actually over
throw it, assisted, no doubt, in somo
measures, by thoir knowledge oi thoir
failure in the assault. There wore only
two divisions ol the enomy on our ox-
trcmo lelt, opposito Hound lop, and
thoro waa a gup in thoir lino of one
mile that their assault bad left, and 1
believe if our wholo lino had advanced
with spirit it is not nnliko that wo
would havo taken all their artillory at
that point. 1 think that was a fault ;
that we should havo pushed tbe enemy
there, for we do not often catch them
in that position ; and tho rulo is,
and it ia natural, that when you re
pulse or defeat an enomy you should
pursuo him ; and I beliovo it is a rare
thing that ono party bents another and
does not pursue bim ; and I think that
on tbat occasion it only requires an
order and prompt execution.
I have no doubt the enemy rcgardod
the success ol their assault as certain,
so much so that they wero willing to
expond all theirammunition. They did
not suppose thatany troops could live
undor that cannonade ; but they mot
troops that had boon so accuslomed to
artillory fire that it did not have effect
on them that they expected. It was
a most tcrriflo cannonade one possi
bly hardly every paralleled.
Q. Was there ever, In any battlo of
which yoa have read, more artillery
brought into action than in that bat
tlo? A. I doubt whothor thoro has
ever has been more concentrated upon
an equal apace and opening at ono
timo. I tbink there bas boon more
artillery engaged in many battles, but
do not boliove thoro baa been more
u,on both sides concentrated on an
y. Yon did not follow tho army from
tbero ? A. No, sir; I lea tho field tho
moment tho fight was ovor.
Q. When did yoa join the army
again ? A. 1 did not join it again 'in
lilsomotimosin December, when active
operations had coasod. 1 waa then
ordered by tho Socrotary of War Into
the Statoa from whonce tho regiments
of my corps came to fill them up hy
recruitment, and I am now on my ro
turn to the army,
y. Hut, with equal numbers, yoa
would not hoeitato toattack tho enemy
anywhore undor equal ciroumalancos ?
A. No. air, 1 would not. In fact thoro
la no flnor army, if aa fine, in exislenoe
in the-world than the army of tho Po
tomac Tbe troops will do anything
if they aro only ordored. If thoy have
not mado this or tbat attack it ia be
cause their commanders did not order

A SIIOIVMAX DEAD.
THE MAN WHO DROVE TWENTY HORSES
BEFORE THE OOLDEN CHARIOT.
Asa C. bVrrydiedon Tuesday last at
Brewster's Station, New York. To
many an old showman tills will bo the
first announcement of the death of
Abo" lierry, one of the bost known
circus men in tho United Slates, and
ono of the last men with whom the
thought of death would bo coupled.
Tho boys aro grown men, who in days
past have gazed at and envied "Ase"
lierry, as, in gorgeous red uniform,
ho sat on tho lolly scat of somo
"Golden Chariot of Apollo, " and
drove twenty prancing horses through
the winding streets ot a country town
in the grand procession ol a circus.
llo was a Connecticut boy, and was
born on a furm, and, liko many a New
r.ngland lad, was at an early ago an
excellent horseman. This was before
the days ol steam, when horses occu
pied a position of honor and useful
ness, sinco lost Young lierry became
in time a skilllul reinsman, so skillful
that when hardly out of bis "teens" he
was employed to drive on tho old turn
pike that ran betwoen Now York and
Albany. Thoso were tho days of four
horse stago coaches, and the drivers
wero chosen for thoir skill and care
fulness. "Abo "lierry was ono of tho
best on tho road.
His skill attracted the attention of
the circus mon. Then thero waa no
railroad circuses, but all tbo travoling
was done overland, by wagons, and
tho owners of circuses wore on tbe
lookout for men who could drivo six
and eight and vavi tan hnraeua. at-1
tacbod to a heavy load, over country
loads, by night safely. So Berry be
came a circus man. This was thirty
years ago, and ovor since, up to withiu
a few months of bis death, be wan
connected with tho show business.
He worked for Koropaugh, Both Howo,
Bailey, Barnum, and, in fact, almost
every circus man of note in the Statos.
Ho was known as the only man who
could, and did, drivo twenty horses,
two abreast. This be did with Seth
Howe, and it was a sight worth soe
ing to see this big, black-mustached
man guide his ten span ot caprisoncd
horses witb as much case as though
behind a ainglo span.
Whon in 1872 Barnum, eastollo,
Hurd and Coupe got together their
bis show, Berry waa mado master of
the bnrsea. Ho bought and sold and
tradod at his own discretion, and the
result waa that tbe show contained
tho finest lot of horses over gulhercd
under a canvas. Ho was with tho
show sovoral years, but he was get
ting to be an old man over sixty
and tbe labors ol tho road were too
much for him. Ho Bought lighter
work ; was ticket seller at tbo Brighton
Beach race track last summer ; then
had chargo of lnkorman's training
stables In Green street, and last fall
went into tho pedestrian business, and
took Dobler and Grossman, to Canada.
Last Spring ho was omployed again
bv Forepauirh, but his old enemy,
rheumatism, again attacted bim, and
ho was forcod to ceaBO work. Ho
went to Danbury, whoro, in years
past, ho had kept a hotel, and where
ho had many friends. His wifo was
with him. Ho grow worso, and dropsy
of tho heart threatened, llo rallied
sufficiently to go to Brewster's Station,
wbcro a married daughter resides,
Thoro ho died on Thursday.
False Teeth and Crutches.
Among tho passengers who boarded
tho cast bound train at Holly, Michi
gan, the othor day, wore a bride and
groom of tho regular hollyhock order.
Although tho car waa lull of passcn
irora the pair began to squeeze hands
as aoon as they wero Boated This of
courso attracted attention, and pretty
soon everybody was nodding and wink
ing, and several porsons so tar lurgot
themselves as to laugh outright, liy
and by tho broad shouldered and red-
handed uroom bocamo aware ol tho
fact that he was being ridiculed, and
ho unlinked himself to the height of
six loot, looked up and down tho aisle
and said : "1 boro seems to bo consid
