ON THE MARCH.
A aoldier lay on the frozen ground,
With only a blanket tightened around
Hie weary and wasted frame ;
Down at his feet the fitful light
Of fading coals, in the freezing night,
Yell as a mockery on the eight,
A heartless, purple flame.
All day long with hie heavy load,
Weal) , and sore, on the mountain road,
And over the desolate plain ;
All day long through the crusted mud,
Over the snow and through the flood,
Marking his way with a track of blood,
He followed the winding train.
Nothing to eat at the bi VOMLO,
But a frozen eruct it, his haversack,
The folio( a comrade's atom..
A cruet that, after a longer fast,
Rome pampered apatite] might have passed,
Knowing that morsel to be the last
That lay at his master's door.
No other sound on hie alumtor Toll,
Than the lonesome tread of the sentinel,
That equal, measured pace,
And the wind that came froM the cracking pine,
And the dying oak and the swinging Mee,
In many a weary, weary line,
To the soidier•s hollow face.
Bat the soldierelept, and the dream were bright,
With the rosy glow of hie bridal night,
And the angel on his breast;
For be passed away from the wintry gloom,
To the pleasant light of a cheerful room,
Where a eat eat purring upon the loom,
And hie weary heart was blest.
Hie children came—two blue-eyed girls,
With laughing lips and sunny Mill.
And cheeks of ruddy glow—
And the mother pale, but lovely now,
As when upon her virgin brow
Be proudly sealed his early vow,
In the summer, long ago.
Ent the reveille wild, in the morning gray,
Startled the beautiful vision away,
Like a frightened bird of the night;
And it seemed to the soldier's misty brain
But the shrill tattoo that sounded again,
And he turned with a dull, uneasy pain,
To the eamp•Are'a dying light.

HOW A FRIEND WAS KILLED.
There is among the remembrances of my life
as a railroad man, one of such sadness, that I
never think of it without a sigh. Every man,
unless he is Bo mercies that he cannot keep a
dog, has hie particular friends ; those in whom
he confides, and to whom he is always cheerful,
whose society he delights in, and the possibility
of whose death he will never allow himself to
Such a friend had I in George H—. We
were inseparable—both of us unmarried; we
would always manage to board together, and on
all possible occasions to be together. Did
George's engine lay up for the Sunday at one
end of the road and mine at the other, one df us
was sure to go over the road "extra," in order
that we might be together.
George and I differed in many respects, but
more especially in this, that whereas I was one
of the "fast" school of ruauers, who are never
so cohtented with running as when mounted .
a fast engine, with an express train, and behind
time ; George preferred a slow train, where, as
he said, his occupation was "killing Lime," not
"making" it. So, while I had the "Baltic," a
fast engine, with drivers six feet and half In
diameter, and usually ran express trains, George
had the Essex," a freight engine, with four
One Saturday night I took the last run North,
and was to "lay over" with my engine for the
Sunday at the Northern terminus of the road
until two o'clock, Monday, P. M. George had to
run the "night freight' down that night, and as
we wished particularly to be together the teat
day, I concluded to go "down the line" with
him. Starting time came, and otf we started. I
rode fora while in the "caboose," as the passen
ger ear attached to a freight train is ealle:d but
as the night was warm and balmy, the moon
shining brightly, tinging with silvery white the
great fleecy clouds that swept through the heav
ens like monstrous floating islands of snow drift-
log over the fathomless waters of the sea, I went
out and rode with George on the engine. The
night was, indeed, most beautiful; the moon
light shimmering across the river, which the
wind disturbed and broke into many ripples,
made it glow and shine like a sea of molten sil
ver. The trees beside the track waved and
beckoned their leafy tops, looking sombre and
weird, in the half darkness of the night. The
vessels we saw upon the river, gliding before the
freshening breeze, with their signal lights glim
mering dimly, and the occasional steamers, with
light streaming from every window, and the red
light of their fires casting an unearthly glare
upon the waters—these all combined to make
the settle spread before us, as we rushei shriek
ing and howling over the road, one of unexcelled
beauty. We both gazed at it, and said that, if
all scenes in the life of a railroad man were as
beautiful as this, we would wish no other life.
- But something ailed George's engine. Tier
pumps would not work. After tinkering with
them awhile, he asked the fireman if there was
plenty of water in .the tank; the fireman said
there was, but, to Illalto assurance doubly sure ? I
went and looked, and lo ! there was not a drop.
Before passing through the station George had
asked the fireman if there was plenty of water:
tie replied that there was ; so George had run
through the station, it not being a regular atop—
ping place for. the train, and here we were in a
fix. George thought be could run from where he
had stopped to the next water station ; so he cut
loose from the train and Carted, WO had stopped
on the outside of a long curve, to the other end
of which we could see; it was fully a half mile,
but the view was straight across the water—a
bay of the river sweeping in there, around which
the track went,
In about twenty minutes after George had left
we saw him coming around the furthest point of
the curve ; the brakeman at once took hie eta.
tion with his light at the end of the oars, to show
George precisely where the train stood. The
engine came swiftly toward us, and I soon saw
that he was getting so near that he could not
stop without a collision, unless he reversed his
engine at once ; so I snatched the lamp from out
the brakeman's hands and swung it wildly across
the track, but it was of no avail. Oa came the
engine, not slackening her speed the least. We

saw somebody jump from the firemanis side, and
in the instant of time allowed us, we looked to
see George jump, but no! be stuck to his post,
and there came a shook as of a mountain falling.
The heavy freight engine running, as it was, at
as high a rate of speed as it could make, crashed
into the train ; thirteen cars were piled into a
mass of ruins, the like of which is seldom Been.
The tender was turned bottom side up, with the
engine lying atop of it, on its side. The escap
ing steam ehrieked and howled the water,
pouring in on the fire, crackled and hissed; the
stook (sheep and cattle) that were in the cars
bellowed and bleated in their agony, and it
seemed as if all the legions of hell were there
striving to make a pandemonium of that quiet
place by the river side.
As soon as we recovered from the shock and
got used to the din, which at first struck terror
to our hearts—and I think no sound can be more
terrible than the bellowing of a lot of cattle that
are crushed in a railroad smash up—we went to
work to see if George was alive, and to get him
out, dead or alive, We found him under the
tender, but one side of the tank lay across his
body, so that be could not move. We got rails
and lifted and pried, until we raised the lender
and got him out. We took one of the doors from
the wrecked cars, laid it beside the track, and
made a bed on it with our coats and the cushions
from the Caboose; for poor George said he
wanted the few moments left him of earth be
neath the open sky,eand with the cool breeze to
fan his cheek. Of course we dispatched a man
to the nearest station for aid, and to telegraph
from there for an engine; but it was late at
night, everybody was asleep, and it was more
than three hours before any one arrived, and all
that time George lingered, occasionally whisper
ing a word to me as I bent over him and moist
ened his lips.
Ile told me while lying the reason why he did
not stop sooner. Something had got loose on
the inside throttle gearing, and he could not shut
off steam, nor, owing to some complicity of evil,
could he reverse his engine. So on he had to
come pelt-melt, and both of them were killed;
for the fireman had jumped on some rocks, and
must have died instantly, MS he was most horri
The night wind moaned through the wreck;
the dripping water yet hissed upon the still hot
iron of the engine; the waves of the river gur
gled and rippled among the rocks of the shore,
and an occasional bellow of agony wae•heard
from amidst the cattle oars, where all the rest of
the hands were at work releasing the poor crea
tures; but I sat there, iu sad and solemn silence,
waiting for him to die that had been as a brother
to-me. At last, just as we heard the whistle of
the approaching engine, and just as the rising
sun had begun to gild and bespangle the pur
pling east, George • opened his eyes, gave my
hand a faint grasp, and was no more. I stood
alone with the dead man I had loved so in life,
but from whom death had now separated me.
ARTEMUS WARD'S SERENADE,
Things in our town is workite The canal
boat "Lucy Ann" called in here the other day,
and reported all quiet on the Wabash. The " Lu
cy Ann" has adopted a new style of binnakle
light: in the shape of a red headed gal, who sits
up ovr the compass. It works well.
The artist I Spoke of in my larst has returned
to Philadelphy. Before he left I took his lily
white hand in mine. I suggested to him that if
he could induce the citizens of Philadelphy to
believe it would be a good idea to have white
winder shutters on their houses, and white door
guinea, he might make a fettle'. " It's a novel
ty," I added, " and may sterile '9131 at fast, but
they may conclood to adopt it."
As several of our public men are constantly
being surprised with serenades, conclooded I'd
be surprised in the same way, 80 I made arrange
ments aecordin'_ I asked the brass band how
much they'd take to take me entirely by surprise
with a serenade. They said they'd overwhelm
me with an unexpected honor for seven dollars,
which I excepted.
I wrote my impromptoo speech severil days
' beforehand, bein' careful to expunge all ingram
matticiems, and payin' particular attention to
the punktooation. It was, if I may say it with
out egotism, a manly effort, but Mare ! I never
delivered it, as the eekel will show. I paced up
and down the kitchen, speakin' my peace over
se as to be entirely perfeck. My bloomin' young
daughter, Sarah Ann, bothered me summit by
single' "Why do Summer Roses Fade?" •• Be
cause," said I, arter hearin' her sing it about
fourteen times, "became its their bizainess! Let
" Betsey," said I, pausin' in the middle of the
room, and letting my eagle eye wander from the
manuscript: "Betsey, on the night of this here
serenade, I desires you to appear at the winder
dressed in white, and wave a lily-white handker
cher. D'•ye hear ?"
"If I appear," @aid that remarkable female,
" I shall wave a lily-white bneket of ho
water, and somebody will be Resided. One bald
headed old fool will get his share."
Bhe refer'd to her husband—no doubt about
it in my mind. But for fear aim might etager—
e& me I said nothin'.
The expected night cum. At nine o'clock
precisely, there was sounds of footsteps in the
yard, and the band struck up a lively air, which,
when they did finish it, there was cries of "Ward
Ward 1" I slept out into the portico. A brief
glance showed me that the assemblage was sum
mit mixed. There was a great many ragged
boys, and there was quite a number of grown-up
persons, evidently under the influence of the in
toxicatin' bole. The band was also drunk. Dr.
Schwarey, who was holdin' up a post, seemed to
be partic'ly drunk—so much so that it had got
into his spectacles, which were staggerin' wildly
over his nose. But I was in for it, and I com
"Feller-citizens: For this onexpected—
Leader of the band—" Will you give us our
money now, or wait till you get through ?"
To this painful, disgustin' interruption I paid
"—for this onexpected honor I thank you."
Leader of the band..-" But you said you'd give
us seven dollars if we'd play you two °boons."
Again I didn't notice him, but resumed as fol•
lowe : " I Bay I thank you warmly. When I leek
at this crowd of true American citizen my heart
Dr. Sohwezey—" So do I !"
As—my heart swells"—
A voice—" Three cheere for the awella."
"We live," said 1 . , "in froublous times, but
I hope we shall again resume our former proud
position, and go on in our glorious career !"
Dr. Schwasey— , . I'm willing for one to go on
in our glorious career. Will you join ma. fellow
citizens, in a glorious career, when he finds
"Dr. Schwasey," said I sternly, "you are
drunk. You're disturbin' the meetin'."
Dr. Soliwasey..." Dave you a banquit spread
in the house ? I should like to have a rhynos
syros on the half shell, or a hippopotamus on
toast, or a horse and wagon roasted whole.
Anything that's bandy. Don't put yourself out
on my account."
At this point the Band began to make hidyoue
noises with their brass horns, and a exceedingly
ragged boy wanted to know if there wasn't to be
some wittels afore the concern broke up? I didn't
exactly know what to
,do, and was just on the
pint of doin' it, when a upper winder was sud
denly opened, and a stream of hot water was
bro't to bear on the disorderly crowd, who took
the hint and retired at once.
When I am taken by surprise with another
serenade, I shah, 'mong other arrangements,
have a respectable company on hand. So no
more from me to-day. When thie you see, re
member me.— Vanity fair.

li r . Ea,' often thought of sending you
a few lines to inform you what rations we get
here. And as there has been a letter published
in the Adler of the 20th of January, stating the
rations we receive, and also that we receive no
other but those mentioned, I think if a proper
time to write and make known to you the truth.
I am from the same Company he (the correspon-

place. I will state the rations the correspondent
of the Adler mentioned. They were the follow

Coffee. We have received, since here, seven dive
hard Crackers, and thirty-four (34) days' rations
of soft bread, which was sometimes warm when
the team brought it to the regiment. And as
the correspondent used the term "alter Speck"
(pork), we received it four times out of every ten
days. and two days of mess beef, and four days
of fresh beef out. of every ten days. One kind
of the above mentioned meat they havefor each
day. And the daily rations are sugar, coffee or
tea ; instead of coffee, beans, and rice sometimes
in place of beans, salt, vinegar and candles.
And potatoes are given three times a week.

CAMP AT WRITE OAK CKITILCH. VA., 1 .
January 801 h, 1868, j
Dims Sin:—The weather during the past two
weeks has been very unpleasant, particularly
last week, during our march to Sanford's Ford,
above Fredericksburg, and back. The health
of the Regiment is unusually good for this sea
son of the year; the sick list is very small, num
bering but 2 in Hospital, and 8 in quarters; the
principal disease is cold contracted during the
exposure on our late march.
Maj. Hoopes, our Paymaster, visited us to-day,
and is now paying off the Regiment, for the
months of September end October, 1962; "grata
backs" and "postage currency" of all denomina
tions are in abundanoe. After paying the
Sutler, and reserving some for "pin money," the
boys send their money, by mail, to their families.
We are now comfortably quartered near White
Oak Church, about 4 miles from Falmouth, where
we have been encamped since the 21st of Decem
ber last, with the exception of our late march to
Sanford's Ford. The late wet weather has pat the
roads in an almost impassable condition, se that
it is doubtful whether we shall lease here far
some time to oome. The boys are busily engaged
in putting up "winter quarters" CO by building
a small log frame, over which they put a shelter
tent, build a email fire place and chimney in a
corner, which makes a comfortable hems for—
a soldier !
There is but very little occurring in camp
worthy of mention ; the all absorbing topic of
the day is the "almighty dollar." At present
our duties are light—drills, dress parades and
inspections take up part of our time, varied oc
casionally by three days picket along the Wake
of the Rappahannock. Quite a friendly feeling
exists between the picket, on both sides, the
" gray backs" are very anxious to barter tobao
co, &c., 'for sugar and ooffee, which our boys
have In abundance. Notwithstanding the stmt
orders against the carrying on of this contraband
trade, the boys will indulge in it.
