charging the second =corps corps line,, and
having, [by means 'of scouts; ricer;
taina- , par : weakness* at that point,
were climbing onward to what they
thought was certain victory.
-At the-time when the enemy was
forminihis divisions for the charge,
General Grant was standing on the
skirts of the pine - grove referred to,
leaning !with one hand on a sapling,
smoking a, cigar, and surveying the
sirrounding country: • The move:
of the rebel commander did not'es
cape bie attention, and on observing
it he removed his cigar, and, gazing
for a moment toward the woods on
Ida Agist, turned 'and' beckoned a ,
Staff °MNr to hie sib. In' a loat'
tone, and without showing by his
demeandr the slightest discomposure,
he gaveithe aide instructions to for
ward by _the telegraph line, which
which connected every division of his
army . with headquarters; orders to
commanders of corps to dispose their,
troops hise& 'a manner as to eheck-
the ' pending movement of the
enemy, and again - turned his eyes to
ward dull woods on his right, still
1 emokbur quietly, and s peaking to no
one. writer of this was sitting
within al,few feet of the General at
the tinse,;, and was intently watching
him,. and ' wondering whether, 'under
leadershir„of that plain, unas
suming little man, the army of the
Potomaa was destined to better luck
than under its former unfortunate
commanders. Under the latter its
history had been but a series of- re
verries4f long, weary marches over
the, burtheg sands and through-the
dreary pine woods of Virginia, and
quick-time tramps over the-hills of
Maryland and Pennsylvania; of
bloody and desperate encounters
with the [enemy, more or less succeS
ful, it is /true, but not sufficient to
materially injure his mora/e. I re
vert to the circumstance of my dis
trusting that same unassuming little_
man with a smile when I remember
how sooni afterward ho convinced the
world of his superior generalship.
The hurried manner of the aide as
he left the General's 'side attracted
the attention of the large group of
officers near byeand in a moment
a score of glasses were levelled in
the direction their chief was gazing.
Simultaneously several sprang isp.
and appreading the General 'called
his attention to •the suspicious move
ments oil the canny. Without re
moving his eyes, he replied calmly :
"I have i been watching them ,for,
some time • they are preparing for a
charge on le second corps' line."—
By this time Meade was at his side,
pale„ neivone;_ and apparently maxi
mil; to bei in the saddle at once ; but
a few w•:srds from Grant, in di low
tone, a' stile lit up the grim warrior's
face, and [all signs of anxiety vanish
ed. Together they stood; observing
the en my's ," movements ,_ until the
rebel 1 nes crossed the open space
refer to,. Grant smiling with a
kind of i xuberant satisfaction as
they disappeared in the 'woods. In
thirty amends after the jungle rang
with the rebel yell (the same as that
heard 'at the New York Convention)
and a' continuous peal of musketry,
and thed commenced one of the
fiercest hand-to-hand encounters dur
ing the war,: lasting for nearly half
an hour. i The result history has told.
Rancor:Os men, weary from hard.
fighting On the day previous, were
scarcely prepared for such , a desper
ate assault, and after a' terrible strag
gle gave limy, leaving - the , enemy in
full possession of the cross-roads.—
They were taken at il dear price,
.however,las the enemy lost five to
one in charging across the open space
directly in front of our works.
Meanwhile, by General Grant's or
der trooPs had been rapidly trans
fer;ed train our right and left toward
the centrrt, hind and at right angles
with the re bel line holding the Brock

The ineffablyl. weak attempt of. the
New York World to belittle the suc

the contempt of any sensible min,
especially of a soldier. It is the; t
tempt of 'a leading Democratic organ
to glorify their friends, the. rebels,

falsehoods whic are 'too transparent

fought that the Union might live can

of the Wilderness was but 98,019, as
shown by officia reports, :instead of
200,000, as, presented by 'this

army numbered 1 72,278. When it is
remembered tha %twice or thrice the

speaks for itself. It means revolu

Seymour suffers from illbealth; he is
as every. body knows, and. as can be
shown if it is necessary; on the best
evidence, subject to a. disabling here
ditary infirmity; he is'ncit a man of
positive character. Even if he lived •
and-retained his health, he would in- -
evitably-be subject and controled by -
the men who nominated him—Val

the man who - would stand behind -

Those who think the best interest of

administratidn composed of and ruled
by - Vallandinghata, Pendleton and
Blair, will naturally and rightfully
vote the, democratic ticket. It will
secure their objects. 41 But let no one
else, support that ticket under the
impression that Mr. Seymour will.
control the administration. He is a
mere figurehead—just as McClelland
was in 1804 ; - a respectable cloak,

Tnts Doss rt.—Time has a, wonder-
ful power in taking the conceit out of
persons.. When a young man first
emerges from the - schools and enters
upon the career of life, it is painfully
amusing to witness his self-suffitiency
—he would have all the world under
stand that he has "learned ont."—that
he is - master of all knotiledge, and
can unravel all Mysteries.' But as .
he grows older, he grows (wiser, he
learns ;that-he:knows a great deal
less than he supposed ke.did,_ and by
the time ho . reaches to three score
years. he is prepared to . adopt as his
own the sentiment of 'John - Wesley :
"Whenl was young I was sere of
everything ,-' in a few years, having
been mistaken a thousand times, I
was not half so sure of Most things
as I was before. At present lam
hardly sure of anything but what God -
has_ revealed to man.
